Copyright problem removed

Prior content in this article duplicated one or more previously published sources. Copied or closely paraphrased material has been rewritten or removed and must not be restored, unless it is duly released under a compatible license. (For more information, please see "using copyrighted works from others" if you are not the copyright holder of this material, or "donating copyrighted materials" if you are.)

For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or published material; such additions will be deleted. Contributors may use copyrighted publications as a source of information, and, if allowed under fair use, may copy sentences and phrases, provided they are included in quotation marks and referenced properly. The material may also be rewritten, providing it does not infringe on the copyright of the original or plagiarize from that source. Therefore, such paraphrased portions must provide their 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, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with these policies. Thank you. ~~~~

This is the {{cclean}} template. This template is for use on the talk pages of articles from which copyright infringement has been removed in accordance with the instructions at Wikipedia:Copyright problems. Its purpose is to help guard against inadvertent restoration of the material as well as to provide information for future contributors on how to use copyrighted text. It is not meant to replace other copyright cleaning procedures as set forth at Wikipedia:Copyright problems.


This template must always be substituted.

Place the following on the talk page of the article from which the material has been cleaned: {{subst:cclean|url=ADDRESS, INCLUDING "http://"|CCI=name of the CCI subpage}}

The url parameter is optional, but may be useful to future contributors in identifying which text specifically was problematic. More than one url may be identified; simply list them in sequence.

The CCI parameter is also optional, but can be used to refer users to the contributor copyright investigation which covers the infringement.

Do not append a signature when using this template, as it is already included.

This template will create its own section header.
