Leslie Walker's "Spreading Knowledge, The Wiki Way" [Business, Sept. 9] quoted Britannica editor in chief Dale Hoiberg as saying that Britannica "take[s] responsibility for all the content we include in any of our products," implicitly scoffing at Wikipedia's disclaimer.
"ALL INFORMATION . . . INCLUDED IN OR ACCESSIBLE FROM THIS SITE [IS] PROVIDED 'AS IS' AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. . . . YOUR USE OF BRITANNICA.COM IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK."
Wikipedia takes great pride in -- and as much responsibility for it as is legally tenable -- all of its content. Online, Britannica appears to do the same.
