When Wikipedia is not legal in a country, it brings the people who are 
living in that country and edit in danger. When Wikipedia is not legal 
in that country, it means that we are hampered in our aim; bringing 
information to all people. It is not at all ridiculous at all to want to 
be legal in all countries. When some content is problematic, the office 
has the right and the might to remove such an article from a project. 
Particularly on the English language Wikipedia this happens with some 
regularity. It does happen on other language projects as well.

>> Gerard, I will not only think Internet. I hope others will not think only USA. If the point is "If we use a fair-use image, a commercial organization can at least take whole Wikipedia pages and re-use them." Well, this is not necessarlily true outside the USA. So fair use images should be banned for the same reason that applies to NC's.
