Copying content from Wikipedia and post in blogs

I noticed that some of the new blogs tried to build their content right away by copying text in full from Wikipedia. Worst, a lot don't attribute Wikipedia as the source, making it appear as their own and commit plagiarism in the process.


Copying content from Wikipedia is also referred to as Verbatim copying. Although the site allows its content to be re-published, bloggers and website owners must responsibly follow Wikipedia's Verbatim copying guidelines.
