we have to take care with how we add information like that to a wiki. Basically, it should be either:


factual information from multiple sources rewritten to be suitably creative. [1] 

a direct quote (which maintains the original copyright and is excluded from the license that wikis use for their text) and reference


Adding Copyrighted Content to the wiki Edit

To quote Wikia's help page on copyright:

Your community may want to include copyrighted material from outside sources on the wikia. This is only allowed under one or more of the following conditions:

  1. Your use of the material will be likely to qualify as a fair use or similar exception.
  2. You have the permission of the copyright holder.
  3. The material you want to use is licensed under a Creative Commons or other open license that permits free reuse.
  4. The material is in the public domain.
  5. You have created the material yourself.

If your use of content does not fall under one of these broad categories, it likely infringes someone's copyright. It is therefore against our Terms of Use to submit that material. We recommend using content that has a compatible license or is released to the public domain whenever possible.

To quote Wikipedia

Facts cannot be copyrighted. It is legal to read an encyclopedia article or other work, reformulate the concepts in your own words, and submit it to Wikipedia. But be careful not to closely paraphrase; the structure, presentation, and phrasing of the information should be your own original creation. The United States court of appeals noted in Feist Publications v. Rural Telephone Service that factual compilations of information may be protected with respect to "selection and arrangement, so long as they are made independently by the compiler and entail a minimal degree of creativity," as "[t]he compilation author typically chooses which facts to include, in what order to place them, and how to arrange the collected data so that they may be used effectively by readers."[1] You can use the facts, but unless they are presented without creativity (such as an alphabetical phone directory), you may need to reorganize as well as restate them to avoid substantial similarity infringement. It can be helpful in this respect to utilize multiple sources, which can provide a greater selection of facts from which to draw.
