Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/European Commodity Clearing (ECC)[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/European Commodity Clearing (ECC), and it appears to include material copied directly from

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 13:39, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

How to verify copyright permission for article European Commodity Clearing (ECC)[edit]

Hello, Ursula Goetze.

Thank you for your interest in donating material from to Wikipedia. Since we do not currently have a method in place to verify the identity of account holders at account creation, we must verify such donations through external processes. The article has been blanked to allow time for that verification to proceed.

Generally, the simplest way to verify is to place a release on that external website putting the material into public domain or co-licensing it under CC-BY-SA and GFDL, which permit modification and reuse, even commercially, as long as authorship credit is given. This release is irrevocable and must continue to be displayed, or the material may need to be removed. A statement such as the following would be sufficient: "The contents of this website (or page, if you are specifically releasing one section) are available for modification and reuse under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License 3.0 and the GNU Free Documentation License, unversioned with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts."

Alternatively, people may choose to send an e-mail to the Wikimedia Foundation from an address associated with the original publication to or a postal message to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the CC-BY-SA and GFDL. There is a boilerplate release form at Wikipedia:Declaration of consent for all enquiries which can be helpful. Please provide a clear link to the website in your e-mail and specify by name the articles on Wikipedia in which the material is being used. Once your e-mail is received and processed by a member of the Communications Committee, the article's contents will be restored if your release is legally sufficient. Please make a note that you've done this on Talk:European Commodity Clearing (ECC) to help guard against premature deletion of the page. You can compose a note or very simply paste the following on the talk page, brackets and all: {{OTRS pending}}

This is somewhat more difficult when content is taken from an incompatibly-licensed Wiki that has multiple authors, however. Sometimes the author of that content on the Wiki can place a licensing statement from their account on their userpages on that wiki. This demonstrates that they are those people and verifies that they agree. In this case, it looks like that would be ChristineNielsen, HansBerndMenzel, and EileenHieke. We would need permission from all substantial contributors.

If you decide you don't wish to release the material into public domain or under the terms of CC-BY-SA and GFDL, or if you are not able to get each of the authors to log in to that website and give permission, you are welcome to rewrite the text from scratch at this temporary page. As long as the material is otherwise compliant with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, it will be used to replace the previous contents. Please leave a note at Talk:European Commodity Clearing (ECC) saying you have done so.

We apologize for the additional steps necessary, but as copyright is a matter of legal concern, we must ensure that we not only protect the rights of copyright holders, but also guard the Wikipedia project against inadvertent infringement.

Before verifying permission, please first review the material to ensure that is compliant with Wikipedia's requirements for verifiability and neutrality and does not contain "original research". (If you are closely related to the subject matter, you may also want to read our conflict of interest guidelines; if you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia, you should review Wikipedia:Starting an article or Wikipedia:Your first article.) Even if permission is verified, material may be modified or removed if it is otherwise inconsistent with our policies and guidelines.

The article will be revisited in about a week to see what additional steps have been taken or may be necessary. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know at my talk page. We also have a help desk which is typically manned around the clock by volunteers.

Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:37, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Update regarding copyright concern[edit]

Since we do not yet have verification of permission by the processes set out above and sufficient time has passed since the placement of the notice, the article has been deleted for copyright concerns. This deletion is not necessarily permanent. If you have already sent a letter to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License (CC-BY-SA) and GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) (if you are not the copyright holder or have co-authored the material, release under CC-BY-SA-compatible license alone is sufficient), the article will be restored when that letter is received and processed by the Wikimedia Communications committee. Likewise, if you have not yet sent a letter, you still may (or resend it, if you believe your original may have been lost), and the article will be restored when that letter is received and processed.

As Wikipedia does not require proof of identity on account creation, it is essential that we receive external proof of authorization in order to ensure that we remain compliant with US Copyright law. It is also essential that we verify that copyright holders understand the extent of the release they are authorizing, in that our licenses permit modification and reuse in any forum, even commercial publication, as long as authorship credit is maintained and future copies are compatibly licensed.

Please note that once permission is verified, the material may be evaluated and altered to meet Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Although we appreciate donations, we cannot guarantee that material donated will be retained.

Thank you. Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:41, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your note at my talk page, but I'm afraid we cannot accept license for content by other people. The release was placed on the page by "Eileen Hieke" - which means that everything added by that person may be licensed, but it doesn't affect contact added by others. The bulk of the material was added by "HansBerndMenzel". This is why I told you above that We would need permission from all substantial contributors.
Please let me know if you obtain this, and we can restore the content to be assessed for appropriateness for inclusion on Wikipedia against our own policies and guidelines. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 11:49, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Sandbox for working on article[edit]

Hello. I've put what I can at User:Ursula Goetze/Sandbox. I'm afraid it's not much - I can't restore the text, but at least the markup is there.

Before it is moved live, the following code should be removed from the bottom: <nowiki></nowiki> That will put it back in the categories.

As you reconstruct the text, please remember that you will need reliable sources that are not connected to your organization for verification for much of the content. Basic information can be sourced to the company itself, but the bulk of Wikipedia articles are meant to rely on unconnected sources. This helps us eliminate bias. Of course, you should be careful to keep the content neutral and avoid adding material you personally know is true but have no citations to support. Being a crowd sourced encyclopedia, we don't allow such material even from subject experts because our readers need to be able to check facts for themselves. :)

I'd recommend a read through the conflict of interest guidelines so that you can be sure you comply, and I would also suggest that you put a note on the article's talk page when it is finished revealing that you work for the company. Editing without such disclosure can increase the appearance of conflict.

I hope this helps, and good luck with it! --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:26, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
