Copyright and plagiarism
If I copy only a
couple of paragraphs
from a book, is that ok?
"You may be violating copyright laws as well as Wikipedia copyright guidelines."
"Also, if you add these paragraphs, a fellow contributor will need to come along and remove this content."
"Even if you're working in your sandbox, please don't do it. Copyright and plagiarism policies apply to everything on Wikipedia—including sandboxes."
