Speedy deletion of GENI - Global Energy Network Institute[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on GENI - Global Energy Network Institute requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

¿Can I make a contribution to Wikipedia's copywright violation policy? While I understand it, and what has been done, it has just made less of Wikipedia rather than more. ¿Why would GENI object to having some of its website text on Wikipedia when its explicit goal is to make people aware of the benefits that creating a world energy grid would provide? ¿Does it not qualify as fair use?

Also, it was a short article, but there was no need to completely delete it; now it is a complete rewrite. Facuq (talk) 03:32, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

You can, but it's the way it is for a reason. Contributions to Wikipedia are licensed under the GFDL, which says that anyone else can use them for any purpose whatsoever, as long as they adhere to certain minor things. Unless the owner of copyrighted material decides to copyleft it similarly (or release it into the public domain), we can't use it. Nor can they give Wikipedia permission to use it only, because from Wikipedia everyone is supposed to have access to it. --lifebaka (Talk - Contribs) 23:38, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
