I agree, although I ask if there is actually a major
argument for *deleting*
a "fair use" image used incorrectly, as opposed to simply removing it from
the webpage. I don't know what the legal status of hoarding "potential fair
use" images is, of course.
The legal status is that it is completely unjustified. Fair use is
inextricably tied up with *use* and simply having an image on the
website, not used in an article, does not in any way justify fair use
Not that with the numbers of copyvios we have the
luxury of really agonising
over each deletion...
I support serious action to ban people who commit copyvios. We are
supposed to be using fair use only in certain very limited circumstances
and people who do not realize that should be banned from the project.
