Copyright violation[edit]

A large proportion of this article is a copyright violation of http://en.chinacourt.org/public/detail.php?id=5 - although only various fragments of the said text is used, there is nonetheless a direct copyvio, as the exact wording is used as is, with very minimal, if not no, variation in wording. Rather than creating an "article" on Wikipedia, one may consider moving to Wikisource, given that the Copyright Law of the People's Republic of China premits so. I don't see how this is an "article"; rather it is the judicial law itself, on Wikipedia. It would be like shoving a huge chunk of the US Bill of Rights here on Wikipedia and calling it an article. There is little content other than the content copied from the link, and if you really want to create a list of capital offences, WP policy states that you must do it in your own words; as per WP:PILLAR, Wikipedia is a free-content encyclopedia. Regardless of whether PRC copyright law permits usage of state and judicial documents on Wikisource, it is an entirely different matter on Wikipedia.
This rant in a nutshell: Either do it in your own words, or move it to Wikisource. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 08:18, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Wanted to clarify that it isn't a copyvio when the material is public domain. I'd agree that this barely constitutes an article--it's much more of a "List." I've added a source under "Further reading" that might be useful in expanding if it remains. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:15, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
However it does not meet originality. Wikipedia does not accept copy-pasted text, regardless of whether it is an entire text, or a part of it. All articles are supposed to be different from the sources they are cited from, regardless of copyright. This is not Wikiquote, nor a Wikia site, and so it is not generally acceptable to have exact copies of texts when an originally written explanation will suffice. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 05:19, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Actually, Wikipedia does accept copy-pasted text as long as it is properly attributed. See Wikipedia:Plagiarism#Public domain sources. If you feel the article does not warrant inclusion for other reasons, see Wikipedia:Deletion process. Alternatively, you would certainly be welcome to replace the contents with a proper article. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:52, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Number of offences[edit]

The article said "some 68" criminal offences, I commented out the 'some'. But are can we confirm the number of offences carrying the death penalty? RJFJR (talk) 22:35, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

The government just changed it to 55: can someone more wikipedia-literate than me change the article please?
