Copyright problem[edit]


This article has been reverted by a bot to this version as part of a large-scale clean-up project of multiple article copyright infringement. (See the investigation subpage) This has been done to remove User:Accotink2's contributions as they have a history of extensive copyright violation and so it is assumed that all of their major contributions are copyright violations. Earlier text must not be restored, unless it can be verified to be free of infringement. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions must be deleted. Contributors may use sources as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences or phrases. Accordingly, the material may be rewritten, but only if it does not infringe on the copyright of the original or plagiarize from that source. Please see our guideline on non-free text for how to properly implement limited quotations of copyrighted text. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously.

'Drabble has famously been engaged in a long-running feud with her novelist sister, A. S. Byatt, over the alleged appropriation of a family tea-set in one of her novels.'

Not even the link to the Telegraph interview actually explains what this is about. Apparently Byatt wanted to write about their family tea-set in a work of fiction, but Drabble did it first. Did Drabble break some agreement? And what was the story anyway? Valetude (talk) 17:42, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Indeed, it seems that the feud was not just over the tea-set. Somebody who known the whole story should rewrite this section... Bazuz (talk) 21:42, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Iraq section[edit]

I feel that this whole section is non-encyclopedic. If she has written a book or a major article about the subject, this could be referenced. But this is just being used as an outlet for her views. Wikipedia is not here to propagate opinions. Valetude (talk) 18:22, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
