Your addition to User:Sergie Marienhof/f has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without evidence of permission from the copyright holder. If you are the copyright holder, please read Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for more information on uploading your material to Wikipedia. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted material, including text or images from print publications or from other websites, without an appropriate and verifiable license. All such contributions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of content, such as sentences or images—you must write using your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. This is simply copied, in bits and pieces from [apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/10665/39323/1/9241561246_eng.pdf this WHO document], copyrighted in 1988. Drmies (talk) 16:05, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
- I deleted User:Sergie Marienhof/w for the same reason; content was cribbed from http://www.who.int/choice/cost-effectiveness/generalized/en/ (first major edit), with subsequent content lifted from www.who.int/choice/publications/p_2003_generalised_cea.pdf and www.who.int/choice/publications/p_2003_cea_nationallevel.pdf. This is serious: any future edits that infringe on copyright should lead to an immediate indefinite block, and it would be a good idea to explain yourself here, and to indicate that you are studying our copyright policies and are going to abide by it.

- Ugh, thanks a lot VQuakr. Yes, same issue, but minor difference: attribution was given to the sandbox. I merged them anyway. No doubt we'll see more of these--I have the feeling a boilerplate was used to write those articles. Drmies (talk) 16:40, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
@Drmies: @VQuakr: Hi, folks! Yeah, I'm sorry, I'm a Wikipedia newbie, so I didn't really understand copyright laws until now. I hope that deleted article is still accessible though. I put some effort into it. I sent a request to WHO for using those copyrighted materials on Wikipedia. Waiting for their response. Sergie Marienhof (talk) 20:55, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
Speedy deletion nomination of User:Sergie Marienhof/form1120
A tag has been placed on User:Sergie Marienhof/form1120, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which pages can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:
- It appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. (See section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) If a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.
- It appears to be a clear copyright infringement. (See section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.
If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. However, even if you use one of these processes to release copyrighted material to Wikipedia, it still needs to comply with the other policies and guidelines to be eligible for inclusion. If you would like any assistance with this, you can ask a question at the help desk.
If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Bri (talk) 17:29, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
