[Foundation-l] Czech Wikipedia's EDP and WMF's licensing policy

It isn't as simple as that. What may be fair use on Wikipedia might not be
fair use on another WMF project. Eg, an image from a news agency could be
F.U. for Wikipedia but not for Wikinews. This - as I understand it - is one
of the reasons why EDP/Fair Use has to be per project/language.

I was under the impression that the EDP was intended for things like
fair use which apply equally to reusers as to Wikipedia.
