Pantheon.org[edit]

  • Site: www.pantheon.org
  • Articles "by Micha F. Lindemans" are mirrors of out of<A title="Online Dating" style="COLOR: #65b45c; TEXT-DECORATION: underline" href="http://216.130.188.208/cgi-bin/ezlclk.fcgi?id=6718" target=_blank> date </A>versions of all mythology related articles. Actually, the articles predate the original entries in Wikipedia and have been copied by users without proper notice.
With stub notices and images etc. removed
  • Especially noticeable with articles that were confused - e.g. Banebdjed and Ba (now corrected in Wikipedia) - Ba (capital B) on Pantheon is described as if a totally different entity to Banebdjed, even though Ba is said to be in Mendes. No Egyptologist would ever make this mistake - Banebdjed means "Ba of the lord ('neb') of djed", and "djed" is the old name for Mendes, but Wikipedia used to have the "Ba of Mendes" and "Banebdjed" as different gods, which is exactly how Pantheon.org has it.
  • It even has the early version of Chem, something totally obviously wrong to anyone with any competence in the field (e.g. Chem = Ham and wears a womans dress. No. Chem is a misreading of "Min", and never wore a womans dress, although female deities were sometimes depicted as Min (including phallus), though always identifiable as to who they were). This error is very unlikely to be made without copying Wikipedia.
  • N.b. w.r.t. Egyptian mythology, the articles have been updated substantially in Wikipedia since April, so may no longer correspond.
  • Claims exclusive copyright, not GDFL, all rights reserved

Details This appears to be a complete dump of Wikipedia based on the last modified date on the front page. There is a disclaimer at the top that "This is NOT the Wikipedia - The content is from the Wikipedia". However, only the last entry of the history is copied and there is no link to the original article, which means it is violating the GFDL. Also, the link to the GFDL is broken because only main namespace is copied. There are other violations. For example, the title of documents is not changed in contradiction of 4.A. of the GFDL.

I'm not sure how they use Wikipedia, but they seem to use it. More resarch is needed. JesseW 06:22, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • It's a direct rip of Wikiquote. Here, compare Wikiquote's article on Pride and Prejudice and their Pride and Prejudice quotes. They do acknowledge the GFDL but don't really acknowledge the authors, as they credit Wikiquote as "SOURCE" and links to here, which is a non-existent page (not sure if this was done out of laziness or poor coding). The only think they really need is a link to the page that it was derived from. I think this should be under medium compliance. --Bash 04:57, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

  • The disclaimer mentions that

Or translated, something like
   1,6. The information on the site Raspberry.news articles free offered and free online sources (like Wikepedia and others) to use.
It's not very clear what they mean with that line (the Dutch line is just as bad), but at least it sounds like they're using Wikipedia.
  • Their page about DMCA is in English, and mentions things that they're using it all as fair use, and they're not subject to DMCA as they're based in China.
  • An example of a copied article is the article about the Common pipistrelle or Gewone Dwergvleermuis. Which can be found on their site too. It's a literal copy of the Wikipedia article with no mention of the license or source. Many more such examples can be found.

Details This site contains a number of pages on mythological underworlds and deities, most if not all the text appearing is pieced together from a variety of wikipedia articles, alongside material apparently sourced from elsewhere. There is no visible link to or acknowledgement of wikipedia, or the GFDL, on any of the pages. The pages also contain a number of wikipedia imgs and photos, likewise uncredited. The site does acknowledge some sources of (non-wiki) material and imgs, although I suspect those tagged with "image courtesy of.." does not mean they've obtained explicit permission. Most likely an unwitting GFDL violation on the part of the website.

Box 6197, Denver, CO 80206, US Phone: +1.3037474010; however, this is just a holding company (www.protecteddomainservices.com) who provide "anonymous" domain name purchases to obfuscate any potential whois info for clients. 3) Form was completed, and a copy posted to rtbot.net via their "Contact us" page [14] on 30-07-2012. Unfortunately it seems the rtbot page is a scam, as it fails and directs to a dead mail page which states: "Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions".

Dear Sir/Madam:

I have noticed that you are making use of English Wikipedia articles as part of your website, rtbot.net. One example is http://www.rtbot.net/belitung_shipwreck, which includes material from the Wikipedia article "Belitung Shipreck", which is located at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belitung Shipwreck. Wikipedia encourages the redistribution of its content. However, it is necessary to comply with the terms of our primary license, the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License (CC-BY-SA). Failure to do so is a copyright violation. The text of the CC-BY-SA can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:CC-BY-SA . That is the relevant legally binding document. However, Wikipedia does offer advice about how to comply with the CC-BY-SA. This can be found in detail at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Copyrights . One of the most important steps is to mention the CC-BY-SA.

At the bottom of every page that uses Wikipedia material, you should include text similar to, "This page is based on the copyrighted Wikipedia article (put article name here); it is used under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. You may redistribute it, verbatim or modified, providing that you comply with the terms of the CC-BY-SA." You should link the text "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License" to a copy of the text of the CC-BY-SA. Also, you must link back to the original Wikipedia article.

I am the derivative copyright holder to the image used from the Belitung Shipwreck page, (the one with the red cross on it next to the island - copy of it http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Belitung_shipwreck_location.jpg) and creator of most of the content of the article, released to Wikipedia under the cc-by-sa licence.

Unfortunately you also have many other pages which include my work, including: Robot, Navlab, Beardmore Halford Pullinger, Philia culture, Particle Astrophysics Magnet Facility (http://www.rtbot.net/Particle_Astrophysics_Magnet_Facility), History of Norfolk, Norfolk, British Expeditionary Force (World War II), Sentry (AUV) (http://www.rtbot.net/Sentry_%28AUV%29), Roman Norfolk (http://www.rtbot.net/Roman_Norfolk), Ramona Milano, and hundreds of other where I have contributed, though in smaller part.'

There are thousands of other pages also used on your site which quote hundreds and thousands of editors whose work is also being used without accreditation. Please acknowledge receipt of this letter and I hope you will endeavour to fix this soon.

Thank you for your cooperation.
