Just querying your use of "we". Do you mean "Wikipedia cannot claim
copyright"? If so, no problem, Wikipedia does not claim copyright over
photos contributed to it. Or do you mean "Wikipedia's editors should not
falsely assert copyright"? In that case, true, but it's really their
problem, not ours. We're not going to get sued over it.
