I understand that German wikipedia has banned
fair use images.
Users located in Germany must not add those images - but, surely, it
okay for US citizens to add those pictures to the de WP!
No, that's not ok - we will delete them if they come up. Our agreed policy is
to have no fair use images, so that *downstream users* may use all of our
pictures without having to think about if *their* use is also *fair* use and
without checking the copyright status of every single image. That policy ist
not so much because of fearing the uploader might interfere with german
copyright issues, but to make life easier for the downloader, whereever he or
she is located.
