Merge to BaobingEdit

Cannot find any RSs about this, and I've searched the term inside and out. English translations for "ice fruit" "iced fruits" and many other variations just bring up stuff like iced fruit-tea or other false positives. Playing around with the pinyin doesn't bring up anything. I'm thinking it's basically baobing with a few less ingredients? Cheers, Estheim (talk) 07:29, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

Peculiar Copyright IssueEdit

Per discussion on Talk:Baobing, I've struck the possibility of a merge, but in my desperate search for anything about this dessert, I finally found it as a near copy (per the Earwig tool) on a page for Beijing tourism[1]. It's copyrighted 2002, but the text says published 2012. This article was created in 2007, and via Wayback Machine, I could not confirm if this text was on any page of the Beijing Tourism site after some hours of pouring over historical pages.

Based on the obvious similarity, either

  1. The material was copied from WP without attribution by the Beijing tourism site.
  2. This page copied from a Beijing tourism site page that is not in the Wayback collection.
  3. OR both WP and the Beijing Tourism site copied without attribution from another source.

My gut says it's more likely WP copied from the tourism site based on the fact that there is absolutely no information elsewhere talking about "Bing Guo" (and it's likely a tourism site would find any arbitrary cultural object to promote) and the English used matches the tone and topic over the whole website. The article was also created back when the WP view toward copying was vastly different from today, and I could see a good-faith assumption that an official/government-backed tourism website is not copy-right protected. The user also added a lot of similar, unsourced dishes that give me a feeling of being copied from a collection of recipes.

I will follow up on some other boards to see if copy-vio is grounds for deletion in this case, but I wanted to explain the issue here. Cheers, Estheim (talk) 19:55, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
