[WikiEN-l] Copyright?

SPUI has repeatedly tagged http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Sbekele
as a copyvio of http://www.cbsintl.com/people.htm.  I refused to
speedy it on that basis, so SPUI blanked it and added the copyvio
template.  Sbekele self-identifies as Sophia Bekele, CEO of CBS
International, and therefore presumably the copyright owner.  Since
this is user space, and the content is an "about us" bio, not
commercial content, I think that blanking and deletion are a bit
excessive.  On the other hand, copyright is copyright I guess.  What
does the panel think?
