RfC on copyright and FfDs

There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(policy)#Consensus_and_copyright_law. All are invited to participate. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:51, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

One month later, the discussion is closed as "no consensus for any action", including proposed policy changes, but as an agreement to disallow copyright violations, regardless of consensus. George Ho (talk) 06:13, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

I asked the owner of these websites about how he's handled copyrights. The response isn't remotely what I was expecting. He's definitely claiming he has the copyright for at least some of the manuals such as [1]. I'd like to have someone experienced with our copyright policy to ask him more specific questions so we can determine which, if any, of his manuals are appropriate as links. --Ronz (talk) 00:20, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

The original publisher of each manual is the copyright holder of that material. Here at Wikipedia we don't base our copyright decisions on whether or not the copyright holder cares any more or whether or not we think we will get caught. Our policy is stricter than that. We're not permitted to violate copyright law, and we're not permitted to add external links that display material that violates someone's copyright in violation of copyright law. I have removed the links (circa 75 links). — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:22, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Edit request

In the WP:COPYLINK section Contributory infringement points to a disambiguation page, it should point to Contributory copyright infringement. - Ahunt (talk) 14:52, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

? Looks okay to me (it's a piped link) — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:25, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
Seems to be the right target now! - Ahunt (talk) 14:27, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
