Are you the copyright owner?
- If you are the copyright owner or represent the copyright owner, we can assist you best via e-mail. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an informal request. Please cite the exact URL (the "address" of the page as shown by your web browser, as in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...), and provide enough information to substantiate your claim of copyright ownership.
Correspondence is answered by a small team of volunteers.
- If you prefer to use the slower process of a formal OCILLA request, you can send it to our designated_agent
Facts cannot be copyrighted, only their expression. That is, you cannot claim copyright on some Wikipedia article just because it happens to cite the same facts as a text or page that you wrote; you may only if the text in the article was lifted from your work.
