I would like to know opinions of others and, if possible and appropriate,
also official opinion of Wikimedia Foundation on following:
As you probably know, some Wikipedias provide fair-use content (as en)
which is not allowed in some other Wikipedias because they want to satisfy
also local laws not allowing fair-use, not just laws of the USA. Because
of that a lot of articles in these Wikipedias do not contain certain
images used in en as fair-use.
Is it correct to provide direct inline (inside the text of the article or
infobox) iterwiki links to these images (and generally files)? For
example: [[:en:File:Metallica and justice for all a.jpg|Image in English
Wikipedia]]. Is it something what should be avoided because it can
potentially violate the law or our license?
I should probably state my opinion too, to be fair and honest: Yes, I feel
it is potentially dangerous and we should avoid it. I would like to know,
if there is a reason to spend time and energy on advocating this opinion.
PS: Sorry, if this arrived twice, no intention to spam, only forgotten
