But yes, that would require more than 1000 searches a
day from a single IP
As already mentioned on the german list, Google offers an increased
query limit for their free service. I wrote an email months ago and
their answer was, that they need a description of the project/program
to decide. I'm sure that they would give a more-queries-donation
We could get around that by coordinating copyvio bot
use by several
users from each wiki, but IMO a better way to do it would be to have the bot
become part of MediaWiki and for the service to be run by the Wikimedia
servers. That will require special permission to exceed the 1000 search a day
I agree that such a bot would be preferrable a part of the Wikimedia-
software, but i don't think that a service like e.g. Google would give
us so much queries per day that a check of every edit is possible.
