Some people consistently move passages (usually the
entire article) of
copyright violations to Talk pages. Talks may not necessarily be considered
Wikipedia proper. But they are still integral part of Wikipedia operations
This such behaviour acceptable?
Depends on the length of the infringed text. It is completely legal to
quote one or two paragraphs from a copyrighted work under virtually every
jurisdiction, although such quotes should be clearly recognizable as such.
However, copying an entiry copyrighted article to the talk page is not
acceptable, since the talk pages are google-indexed. In that case, please
blank the page. (Which raises another issue, namely copyright
infringements in article histories. That could be addressed, if necessary,
by implementing a deletion feature for individual article revisions, which
would actually be relatively simple to do.)
