Fat Blue copyvio 
Original complaint 
From: Webmaster Sesame Street Encyclopedia Date: Sun, 19 Sep 2004 15:50:10 +0200 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Sesame Street Dear mister Wales, I found an article about Fat Blue on wikipedia, a character from sesame street. I created the Sesame Street Encyclopedia www.sesame-encyclopedia.com . The article is exactly copied from my site. I do not mind if some facts are used from my site, but I do not tolerate exact copies of my writings. I hope you'll remove it soon, or write your own version of it. The Sesame Street Encyclopedia

Hello Sesame Street Encyclopedia,
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Copyright violations are one of our most serious concerns, and we do our best to identify and revert them. While it has taken a few days to send you this reply, the reaction to your letter was somewhat faster: your email arrived at 13:50 UTC on the 19th; the article was removed in just over an hour . I, too, hope that the next person to take an interest in the subject will write their own article in its place.
As you may know, Wikipedia is a completely public site which any visitor may edit. Despite our strong stance against copyright violations, occasionally a copyrighted work like your article slips in. In this case, the user who submitted the Fat Blue article was also involved in less subtle vandalism, and has been banned from the site.
~~, Wikipedia editor.
