Case study for reference

Here is the paragraph that is most interesting:

As what is called a Wikipedia fork, in keeping with the terms of the CC-by-sa license, the article version of each document imported from Wikipedia is documented, rigorously cited, and hyperlinked to the Wikipedia article so that a complete history of its construction remains available. Articles not initially obtained from Wikipedia have copyrights or licenses based on their particular situation.

This is just noted for reference and comparison. We don't need to do what they do. It is mainly the key paragraph above that may be useful. - Dorje108 (talk) 14:58, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
