McCain gave a speech about the war between Russia and Georgia (the country) a few days ago, and someone on Wikipedia noticed something strange — a few parts of his speech were taken almost directly from the Wikipedia article about the country of Georgia.
Two things about that:
- Material on Wikipedia can be used freely, but according to their license requires attribution. Is McCain guilty of intellectual property theft?
- McCain is running on his strength in foreign affairs. Hah!
