How to report apparently improperly re-used Wikipedia content?
So far, I have been unable to find any specific directions or recommendations for how one might best report web content that appears to improperly re-use Wikipedia content without proper attribution or with potentially misleading usage of Wikipedia logos. It seems to me that this page should have such a link or recommendation on it. Any suggestions from anyone else on this?
- See Wikipedia:FAQ/Overview#Site X seems to be violating Wikipedia's copyright. Do you guys know about this? It's mostly editors who are interested in reporting mirrors. Wikipedia:Contact us is not aimed at editors. PrimeHunter (talk) 00:03, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks kindly for the great cross-link. I followed the site that rated the worst "offenders" of our "WP content re-use licensing requirements," and none of them seemed to be as bad as the certain site that I stumbled upon this AM at Gawker-Labs, and all of them, so far as I could tell, appear to have been contacted by our legal department and to have subsequently removed whatever material may have been in question. Am hoping that the same might happen now with Gawker-Labs too. I've written a letter to the WP legal department about this. My guess is that yes, they will now soon be "reaching out" to Gawker too. We shall see. Be good (relatively speaking of course). Scott P. (talk) 03:04, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
