no, the fair use media repository will be independant for each language. The reason being each project might take a different stance on it.
Remember that using fair use image is here to support information, but it is not our goal to provide content with restricted use. We should avoid it whenever necessary

Just a "newbye" question.

Is the "Upload fair use media" repository unique for all language wiki
or is there One repository per language.

More simple (sorry i lack real english practice) : if I want to use a
"fair use media" presents into en.wikinews, do I need to copy/paste the
stuff in the french realm or do I have a direct link from the froggy
(choose an another) wikinews to the english wikinews ????

I love commons for that reason : one repository for ALL wikis. (don't
love border or ghetto sorry :)
