Use this page to note of articles that appear to have been copied from other sources, or that appear to have made use of large amounts (more than a paragraph) from other sources.

Because Conservapedia's policies on copying are not yet clear, and are not obvious to users, most of these entries will have been made in good faith by users who are trying to help Conservapedia.

If you can tell, put the material under the proper heading.

I don't think there's any rush to do anything in particular about these until it's clear what the policy is. Dpbsmith 14:01, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

  • Rudy Guiliani Much of the article on was copied wholesale from his official biography (here [1] ). The offending material was added, as best I can tell, here [2] . The page containing the biography is not clear as to whether or not the material is copyrighted or public domain, but either way it should have been cited. I’ve gone ahead and cited the material, but I am reporting it here, per the request at Conservapedia:Articles for Deletion--Reginod 10:31, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Code of Unrighteous Acts About 90% of the article is copied verbatim from a copyrighted article of the same name at [3]. I have contacted the author who says that he has changed it "enough."
