A case of misuse of Wikipedia information on RxWiki?

Filed under: Internet in medicine — arildf @ 2:30 pm

Hmm. The information about Systemic lupus erythematosus on Rxwiki (last updated on 14 August 2007) has strong resemblance to the wikipedia entry on the same topic from 12 August 2007. Is this practice in accordance with the rules for copying wikipedia content? (Wikipedia content can be copied, modified, and redistributed so long as the new version grants the same freedoms to others and acknowledges the authors of the Wikipedia article used (a direct link back to the article is generally thought to satisfy the attribution requirement))
