No, that is not how OTRS permissions work. OTRS checks that the
copyright-holder has released the media under a free license, not that
limited-permission media are being used in those limited ways. 'Images
with permission', if you mean Wikipedia-only permission images, would
these days be told 'sorry, that's not free enough'.
I thin IT.wp just needs to accept this announcement. Wailing about it
is not going to make any progress. (And no I'm not a fair use
apologist. I think we should abolish all fair use, too...)
I say that for "images with permission" is possible to have a sort of
control, for "fair use images" it's not possible;
I do not think we need absolutely images with permission, we can choose
to cut them off, which is probably the best solution; but I think that
an image with permission is more fair than a "fair use" one.
