I went on to look at electron microscopes and found it was almost the exact copy to Wikipedia. it copies Wikipedia to the extent that you even use there font and layout as well as there picture and sub headings let alone copying the words almost exactly despite change a few such as from 10000000x in Wikipedia to 10 million times which is probably the largest difference you made to the vocabulary used. I think this sight is useless and Wikipedia should have the right to sue you.

Thank You

Thank you for taking the time to comment.

New World Encyclopedia is a wiki-based encyclopedia which contains selected articles from Wikipedia as well as a number of original articles. As a “Wikipedia fork,” in keeping with the terms of the CC-by-sa license, each article imported from Wikipedia is documented, rigorously cited, and hyperlinked to the Wikipedia article so that a complete history of its construction remains available.

At the end of each article there is a “Credits” section which explains that NWE writers and editors rewrote and completed the Wikipedia article in accordance with NWE standards, or notes that it is an original article. The names of those NWE writers and editors who contributed to a particular article can be found by clicking on the “Menu” tab at the top of that article and choosing “Page history.”
Many of the articles selected from Wikipedia have subsequently been updated; others remain essentially unchanged.

In some cases the New World Encyclopedia articles were substantially and significantly modified, including the addition of different material and/or the deletion of some content; other articles were changed to a lesser degree. Thus, some NWE articles bear little resemblance to the Wikipedia article on the same topic while others are substantially the same.
