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.
