Copyright cleanup[edit]

Material has been removed today from this article as part of [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Copyright Cleanup/{{{1}}}|a multiple article copyright cleanup]]. In accordance with the copyright violation policy, when a contributor has been identified as having placed copyrighted content without verifying permission in a number of articles, his or her contributions may be removed indiscriminately to protect the project from copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or published material, except in very limited quantity as used in accordance with non-free content policy and guideline. The material should not be restored without careful verification that it did not violate copyright or plagiarize from another source. Contributors are welcome to replace it with new content. It is unfortunate that this is necessary, but Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously. Contributions that violate any copyright will be removed, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. Thank you. --~~~~
