You would be mistaken to conclude that the Foundation does not regard
copyvio as significant.  Rather, your choice of venue for discussion,
i.e., Foundation-L, is not the most productive.  Juriwiki-L is the place
where hot copyvio action may be found more readily.

Please contact me offline to discuss particulars.

The lack of response is deafening! :-P

I guess I was mistaken. :-( I take it that copyright issues and
incorrect use of fair use provisions are NOT a concern for the
foundation at this moment in time?

Due to the fact that copyright and fairuse checking is seen as
disruptive on en.wikipedia, I suppose that priority must then be given
to the community. I shall concede this point to my opposition, and
request for copyright checks on en.wikipedia to be curtailed.
