Wikipedia is an unbelievably popular source of information. This may in part be because search engines prioritize Wikipedia in search results. This month Wikipedia claims it has 23 million articles and that in 2011 the site received an estimated 2.7 billion monthly page views from the U.S. alone. Have you ever wondered who owns the content and the risks of relying on Wikipedia content rather than legal authorities like law review articles or classic legal encyclopedias, or dictionaries?
