[mailto:wikien-l-bounces@Wikipedia.org] On Behalf Of Ray Saintonge
A person who in good faith publishes material where a reasonable fair
use argument can be made is not breaking the law. Other
defenses which would exculpate him also exzist.
Mmmm, I don't think anybody's going to be sued for uploading a user
photograph onto Wikipedia where they know the photographer and the
photographer doesn't mind. It's not worth arguing over.
My point in all this is that I uploaded a photograph of myself a while back
and some mean-minded admin had it deleted because the license was
inadequate. He gloated over the fact that I couldn't do anything about it.
What I want to know for when I'm able to upload it again, is what licence to
use so that I can keep my happy snap on my user page.
