Use FileImporter for cross-wiki transfers of media not allowed on Commons
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

It was suggested to install the FileImporter extension on wikis that allow to have media that are not allowed on Wikimedia Commons. E.g. English projects allow fair-use media like (small-size) movie screenshots and cover art (books, music CDs, movie posters). These wikis still want to share these media, but can't use Commons.

Another solution for the same problem would be a dedicated media repository for non-free media, and allowing imports to this repository. This was most certainly already discussed on Commons and wikis that have this problem. TODO: Investigate and collect links to previous discussions.
