I'm assuming we should provide definitions using our own words.
Copy/pasting a definition from somewhere else would be unacceptable, am I correct?
I'll give you an example of what I mean:
Against the clock:
in a race with time; in
a great hurry to get something done before
a particular time.
Now the above definition isn't from me. Would I have to rephrase it in my own words so that it wouldn't violate any copyright infringements?
The problem I have with that is that sometimes a definition is perfect the way it is and rephrasing it just so that it doesn't look the same at the cost of quality just doesn't seem like a good solution to me.
Does intellectual property applies to idioms?
