[Pro] Legal use of Wikipedia information on a site

I have a customer who wants to put some information on his site that is a direct copy/paste of information from the Wikipedia site. Is this legal ?? Can he do this??

Don’t want to tread on any copyright issues and someone here might know.

Thanks,

Rich

From Wikipedia’s home page:

It would be worth just checking the entry your client wants use for any specific restrictions if there are any. Many of the images are affected in the same way.

Hope that helps.
