Mr. Brandt has posted a long listing of articles to his website making 
allegations of plagurism
of wikipedia articles from copyrighted sources.


Some editors may want to investigate these claims to determine if the 
articles were copied from
(Wikipedia -> these sites) or the other way around (these sites -> 

I did receive a notice on a couple of the articles I had uploaded to 
Wikigadugi from the XML dumps
along with some comments about "looking into possible copyright 
infringement" from one of the sites
Brandt references which brought this matter to my attention in the first 
place.  Someone should probably
go over these articles and determine if these claims have merit.

I am not going to take down anythig from Wikigadugi right now since I am 
unable to determine if the
articles were copied FROM Wikipedia or the other way around.
