The group behind the Wikipedia online encyclopedia has accused Baidu.com, China's most popular internet search engine, of being the worst violator of its copyrights. Florence Nibart-Devouard, chair of the Board of Trustees at the Wikimedia Foundation yesterday asked the company again to give credit where it is due.
The Wikimedia Foundation has never sued a copyright violator and has no plans to take Baidu to court. But Wikimedia is asking more publicly for the Chinese search company to respect its copyright licence by simply attributing Wikipedia entries that have been copied on Baidu Baike, the company's Chinese language web encyclopedia.
