Hi all, I was going to upload a Wikipedia document to Immersion, but is it copyrighted? Just wanted to check before I uploaded it.

Yes, there is even a "Wikipedia" category you can chose.

Most of the articles in immersion are from Wikipedia, so I would think there is no problem. You might find some of them "censored" by Duolingo if the content is deemed too mature.
