Not a verbatim copy: embedding failure - text inserted between title ("Cold War") and start of Wikipedia text ("The Cold War (September 2, 1945 - December 25, 1991) was").

Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt
URL http://books.google.com/books?id=MwvM09Z-7DwC&printsec=frontcover

Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt is an e-book published by MobileReference for use on mobile devices. The URL links to Google books' incomplete copy. A complete copy has to be purchased from a commercial supplier.

Description
Sample p.1235 is an exact, or nearly exact, copy of a section in an earlier version of Wikipedia's article Mathematics in medieval Islam.
Rating Medium, judging from the Google books copy. Precise degree of compliance is difficult to evaluate without buying a commercial copy
Compliance The licensing information provided on the "back cover" acknowledges that material from Wikipedia has been used, and that this material is licensed under the GFDL, although it also wrongly implies that this material is also "public domain". However, it also asserts "all rights reserved" over the work as a whole, whereas the GFDL requires that the whole of any modification of a work licensed under it—which is what this is—must also be licensed under the same licence or a substantially similar version.

A copy of the GFDL licence doesn't appear to be included anywhere in the publication, as required by the terms of that licence, although a link to an on-line copy of the licence appears to be provided with the licensing information. The licensing information includes an apology for not listing all the authors of the Wikipedia material, and asserts that these can be seen "by following the hyperlink at the bottom of each article". As far as is possible to tell from the Google books copy, such links do appear regularly throughout the the publication, but it doesn't appear to be possible to use the Google books copy to check that these links work and do in fact point to the proper articles.

Dear Sir/Madam,
As creator of the images used on http://explanation-guide.info/meaning/Gbe-languages.html, http://explanation-guide.info/meaning/African-languages.html, and http://explanation-guide.info/meaning/Nilo-Saharan-languages.html (all copies of the Wikipedia articles of the same title) I object to your use of them.
The images are released under the Creative Commons Attribution License 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0). Explanation-Guide, unlike Wikipedia, does not give the required attribution, thereby violating the license.
I trust that you resolve this issue soon, either by not using the images or by giving proper attribution to the creator.
Thank you,
Mark Dingemanse
Dear Mr. Dingemanse,
Please accept my apologies: I was not aware that the images are licensed separately to the texts. Thankyou for pointing this out.
As a short-term solution we have linked each image to an information page which links to the relevant page at Wikipedia. I hope this established attribution. We will try and add a more user-friendly and informative solution in the near future.
Yours sincerely
Lawrence Smith
Dear Mr. Smith,
thank you for your quick response. However, the short-term solution you propose does not work at present for the images I mentioned. The problem is that the respective Wikipedia articles contain scaled down versions of the original images. In the Wikipedia articles, this scaled down version is linked to the original image and to the attribution information, thereby fulfilling the license requirements. On explanation-guide, this link is lost, the scaled down version is copied, and the information page instead refers to a non-existent page on Wikipedia. Which leaves the issue unresolved.
I do trust that you will find a solution soon.
Thank you,
Mark Dingemanse
Dear Mr. Dingemanse,
Once again my apologies. The links now take into account scaling issues and link to the correct Wikipedia page.
Yours sincerely
Lawrence Smith

I have no record and don't recall receiving the earlier email that you refer too. However, we've reviewed the licence [again] to try and clarify your comments, and we stand corrected on a few points. Personally I don't find this licence a very straightforward one to interpret, but I agree that some changes are needed. As such we've added a locally hosted copy of the licence rather than the remote one at FSI, and this page is linked to by the text "GNU Free Documentation License" on every page on the site. The "Copyright 2007Splashweb, all rights reserved" statement was actually changed some weeks ago to "Copyright Statement. FamousPeople.co.uk is published by Splashweb".The "Copyright Statement" link leads to an updated Copyright Statement page with a link, in context, through to the copy of the licence.
