Copyvios via cross-wiki uploads tool
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

A lot of uploads via the new crosswiki upload tools are copyvios/fair use material such as copyrighted logos etc.

Can we reduce the copyvios by adding some sort of filters?

I noticed you have yet a good warning about own work when uploading files, but a lot of users don't know that content on the www is copyrighted. Maybe such a notice should be added.
