You're right, this has nothing to do with law. It has to do with the
position that the foundation has taken. Quite simply, the foundation has
said that copyright is evil. This includes copyright that the Wikimedia
foundation itself owns. Since it doesn't look like the foundation is going
to change its position on free content, the only way to eliminate the double
standard would be to impose the same restrictions on Wikimedia-owned content
that we impose on content owned by others.
