Wikipedia Terms of Use

All of the articles revolved around or mentioned Wikipedia this week and many of them talked about the advantages and disadvantages of collaborative creations. This got me very interested in the Wikipedia's Terms of Use, as there was a lot of talk about incorrect citations and plagiarism. The terms of use contain a lot of information, a lot of which include "use at your own risk" types of statements. They include explanations of the type of information to be found on Wikipedia, as well as guidelines for posting, editing, and warnings about reading and using the content. As the terms of use are very long, they also provide a summary at the top of the page which outlines the basic gist of their policy. I found this information pretty interesting and worth checking out.
