Let me be clear:
(i) It's NOT a DECISION, it was an opinion piece by Mike Godwin ("I
would recommend") and it wasn't communicated in a formal way (mailing
list, meta, etc.)
(ii) At least WS de and WP de have never accepted this opinion. There
are ten thousands - or more - of media on WMF servers not PD in the US
(not only URAA-, but also FOP- or PD-Ineligible-related).

The law counsel recommandation of 2007 wasn't
communicated to the
other WS and WE SHOULD IGNORE IT. It's clear that WMF has NOW to say
what is possible in the light of the Supreme Court Decision -
regarding Commons and the other WMF projects.
This is a clear issue of a WMF board resolution and not for an opinion
peace on a talk page which is executed from an incompetent WS branch.
I mentioned a Wikisource-specific old decision, but that's always been the
established policy on all WMF wikis, which has just been confirmed by the
laws of the United States of America»
I'm not expressing an opinion about this, I've just remembered that you're
not trying to prevent a possible future decision but to overturn an old
established one, so it will be more difficult than you envision.
