Ok, I think that we need to substitute all the "images with permission"
with "free content" images whenever it is possible, and I think we all
agree with it.
I believe that the problems are only for useful images that aren't
available with a free license (or that we can't create by ourselves,
there's a ton of that kinds of images even on it.wiki).
My doubt is: do we risk anything by uploading images with permission
that someone else on Wikipedia will tag as fair-use? I fear it won't be
legally acceptable (or at least who has given the permission will retire
it immediately) - I don't have an idea, since I'm not a lawyer.
