Except that the problem isn't incompatible licenses; its lack of licenses.
Most pix uploaded to wikipedias have no license. They are there under fair use rationales which are specific to each use and to the laws which apply in countries using that language. These pix are not free to reuse. Each reuse needs a new fair use rationale to justify it.
That is why I think we should limit commonsdata to files on commons, at least for now.
Hoi,Why would it ? A wiki would have a list of permissible licenses. That has nothing to do with Commons and everything with standardising licenses so that there is only one for each license.Thanks,GerardMOn 14 September 2014 17:55, Jan Dudík <email@example.com> wrote:Problem is, when somebody translate article from en.wiki and copy all

people which will not agree with deleting these images from articles.
Soulition would be, if there will be some table of wikis which do not
allow such images - and servers will not dispaly this images on these
