I've sent the following message to the Delafield Chamber of Commerce in the hopes of it getting some attention:

Hello - someone from this organization is updating the Delafield page at While the Wikitravel community appreciates the contributions, much of the content is being cut & pasted from various web sites and is thus appears to be a violation of copyright law. We have left some comments in various places, including, but have thus far not been able to get your attention. Please respond to these concerns on the so that your content does not need to be removed from the Delafield article. Thank you!

To the contributor: Wikitravel:Welcome, tourism professionals also has information that is relevant to you. -- Ryan • (talk) • 15:19, 25 June 2010 (EDT)

Hello, thank you for your concerns and attention to the page. The content provided on the site (business descriptions) is content provided to the chamber of commerce by the businesses as the official description each would like to use. The chamber uses a program called ChamberMaster to manage the business directory so this may be where you were seeing the additional website. Regarding the description of the city, that content is approved to use as copy that describes the city, however, we will change the copy to accommodate the desire of WikiTravel to have unique descriptions. If you do have other concerns, we are happy to comply and accommodate. Thank you!
The important point is that any content added to Wikitravel must be freely licensed, meaning anyone can re-use it or change it - see shared:Copyleft for details. As long as the contributors agree to this you can simply leave a message on Talk:Delafield stating that any copied text is being re-licensed under the CC-SA license from the Delafield Chamber of Commerce, and that would be sufficient. Remember though - once you agree to license content under the CC-SA, anyone can re-use it or modify it. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:01, 28 June 2010 (EDT)
