Copying within Wikipedia[edit]

Hello. Following on a listing at WP:SCV, I am cleaning up from copyright problems in the Regular Show season articles. I see one of these issues was created by you, and I need to be sure that you are now aware of how this is done.

Wikipedia's content is not public domain, but instead is liberally licensed for reuse and modification, so long as the terms of the license or licenses (as we have two) are met. One of the requirements of both licenses is attribution. Another is that the content must remain free. Reusing content on Wikipedia automatically meets the second term, as it is under the same licensing scheme, but the attribution requirement needs to be met by the user who copies content from one page to another. This is done at minimum by an edit summary with a direct link to the source article. Best practices also recommend the use of the template {{copied}} or a similar note on the talk pages of the two articles to ensure that the attribution chain is not broken.

Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia explains how to meet this legally mandated requirement. It's not a formality, but a necessary compliance with our Terms of Use.

It is possible - maybe even probable - that you are aware of this now but were not in 2012 when you created this article. I have repaired the copyright problem with that one, but if you know of any other articles into which you pasted unattributed content from other Wikipedia pages, please provide the attribution now so that the content is compliant with license. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:23, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
