I wrote a 80 page book, the first 18 pages is copied from Wikipedia, as informational purposes, I have a link to the page I got it from in my book, Wikipedia is an open source website where anyone can change any of the information at anytime,
The other 62 pages are mine and I have a copyright in my book
My Question is,
is it plagiarism or against the copyright laws to use the 18 pages in my book where it is from Wikipedia????
and what can I do, or have to do to stay within the law
I am confused as to the laws of the open source Content
Please let me know Thank you
