@Andrawaag If the solution to this would simply be to change the message quoted in the description of this task then that's pretty easy.
Unless we are talking about putting licence info somewhere else? or on a more granular level?

There is also a popup that warns you about contributing data under CC0 in the UI. We need to look into whether Wikibase assumes CC0 in other places, too.
