Why do you think it was copied and pasted? It doesn't look like the kind of stuff one finds on a media guide. - --Mischa 21:11, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

Maybe not a cut and paste I suppose. Just an unwikified copying from a media bio of some sort, by an unlogged in user. --Jeff 21:18, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

Or an unwikified entry by a Berroa fan. - --Mischa 21:20, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

I'm moving it back, since there's no indication it's a copyright violation. --Philippe 09:40, 7 August 2011 (EDT)
