Wikipedia as IP theft enabler?

I am not a huge fan of Wikipedia, in terms of tech accuracy, as I’ve noted before.  For a quick idea of a new term it’s great: beyond that, watch out.

However, Charles Muller has pointed out something I hadn’t considered:  that, given it’s popularity, Wikipedia is a prime vector for losing control of your intellectual property.  As one who has had masses of work ripped off by others, I have to be sympathetic to his argument.  He’s got a couple more good points in this quick little piece.
