Gus Freedman was the photographer commissioned to take photos at
Wikimania. Brad uploaded a lot of these to Commons, so I expect it's
one of those she's talking about. If it is, the Wikimedia Foundation
holds the copyright to those and they're released under CC-BY-SA-2.5,
so the Foundation could grant the rights to use them without needing
to adhere to that license if it wanted to.
