Did The AP Swipe a Line About World B. Free from Wikipedia and Violate the CC License?

Ooopsy-daisy, AP. That line about where World got his nickname maybe should have been attributed, shared, and shared alike, don’t you think? (Click on image to embiggen.)

There are only so many ways to phrase how and why World got his nickname. And who knows, maybe the AP writer is the same Wikipedia editor who updated this page on the 19th before writing the AP piece yesterday. With that said, I should also attribute the CC image in the background of the graphic below right back at you, CC. Same for you, Wiki. AP, since you don’t do the CC deal, I’ll tread the fair use water with you and Shepard Fairey.
