OK wikipedia gives their entire stuff away for free.

WHAT stops me from creating my own site and then extract the data from this gigant database and put it on my own, with adsense on?

seriously, i dont care what you say about duplicated content, because its not true, this would bring in [lots] of traffic eventually (maybe within 6 months) assuming i have 2-3 backlinks from my other sites.

i realize i ruin this by telling you about it, but i wasnt gonna do it anyway. i dont need to do this, but i wanna hear what you think.

personally i think it would generate $100/day

There are 2'034'993 pages like that already. Forget about it. And no, copying dmoz.org is not a good idea too.

I always wondered how wikipedia makes money...they dont have any ads on their site at all.

Doesn't work.

I know people doing it.

And they make 1-3 dollars a day.

It simply does not work.

A more realistic figure would be "thousands" of sites.

2 1/2 years ago this would have been a great idea, now all it does is add more data pollution to a chronically overspammed web.

I actually know someone who has added some Wikipedia content to their site (for the convenience of their users) and has taken steps to ensure the bots can't get at it.

It's a foundation supported mainly by donations.

whoever runs wikipedia <snip> could put adsense on it and not worry about donations.
