Does this mean, that if local law has no Fair Use or similar, then an EDP
cannot be made just be considering the US law (ie. Fair Use) ?
Thanks in advance
And if there is no EDP, is there any point in uploading locally and not to
Commons directly? (Except the usual, that Commons couldn't handle the influx
of new users, or that its unconvenient unless there is Single User Login)
