"The Wookieepedia website gives us a perfect example of how fans can summarize without using an author's words verbatim."
Abel G. Peña[src]

This page is intended for listing and discussing copyright problems on Wookieepedia, including pages and images which are suspected to be in violation.

Instructions Edit

If you list a page or image here which you believe to be a copyright infringement, be sure to follow the instructions in the "Copyright infringement notice" section below. Page titles should stay listed for a minimum of 7 days before a decision is made. After one week, they are subject to deletion.

In most cases, copyright problems will be obvious copies from other sources (for example, official sites like the Databank, fan sites like CUSWE, or published works.) These problems can be handled through the dynamic list below. More complicated problems should be added to today's section at the bottom of the static section.

Pages where the most recent edit is a copyright violation, but the previous article was not, should not be deleted. They should be reverted. The violating text will remain in the page history for archival reasons unless the copyright holder asks for it to be removed.

Copyright infringement notice Edit

Actions to take for text Edit

Remove the text of the article, and replace it with the following:

{{copyvio|url=place URL of allegedly copied material here}}
  
~~~~

Where you replace "place URL of allegedly copied material here" with the Web address (or book or article reference) that contains the original source text. For example:

{{copyvio|url=http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/hovawart.htm}}

Tagged articles (dynamic section)Edit

This section lists all articles tagged with {{copyvio}}.

The static section of this page should also be checked.

Listings of possible copyright problems (static section)Edit

Please use this section for more complicated copyright problems. If an article is tagged with {{copyvio}}, do not list it here as well: it will automatically be added to the dynamic list above.

8 Dec 2006Edit

  • File:Picure of Herbsewell doll.jpg: This image is taken from DeviantArt. The copyright notice on that page specifically says "©2005-2006 ~Evolvana", and based on a discussion I have had with the creator of this artwork, she did not upload it to Wookieepedia, and she was not informed it was here (and therefore did not give permission for that). DeviantArt does go after people for what they call "ripping" their artwork, and this would count in their eyes. --OuroborosCobra 14:19, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
    • I'm removing it. —Silly Dan (talk) 22:36, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Whatever happened to this? Why isn't it removed? -- Riffsyphon1024 07:22, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
        • He said he got permission after I deleted it, so he reuploaded it. —Silly Dan (talk) 12:38, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

1 January 2007Edit

On the article of the Temple of the Jedi Order (Real) , I have complete permission to use all needed resources to promote a factual representation of our order, and the previous version was recognized by my master, who is the founder of our Temple. He commended me for doing so. Thank you.
