I feel badly for wikipedia
I don't see how anyone can feel badly for wikipedia. Almost eveything on it was scraped from other sites, except that it's slightly re-worded as if somehow that makes the scraping okay. Many of the articles gradually accumulate errors (Or intentionally added mis-information) because anyone, no matter how ignorant or how biased, is allowed to edit them. But no matter how inaccurate, or how copycat, a wikipedia article is, Google automatically boosts it to the top of the rankings anyway.
At least a dozen of my articles have been scraped (but slightly re-wored) in order to create new wikipedia articles. In every case the wikipedia article soon displaced my article at the top of the SERPs and started taking most of the traffic.
