If someone can read enough English to upload media using a completely
untranslated interface, I would hope they also know enough to
understand the copyright notice. If everything else were translated,
that would be another matter entirely.

And how do you know that you don't get uploads from people speaking
only Tibetan? Do you ask every uploader?
