It would be nice to be able to pull copyright metadata directly out of file
formats that support this (Creative Commons tags etc)

The only problem I see to accomplishing this in some cases is how each file
format seems to do this a little bit differently. Commonly used file formats
(PNG, PDF, JPG, MPG, MP3) do have official standards on how this is
accomplished. There is some ISO activity to standardize this practice, but it
is not always followed in actual data file formats, even those that are ISO
standards (like MPEG files).

Copyright metadata can be false (I'm thinking museums pretending their
digitizations of PD works are protected), so it should always be possible for
the uploader to easily change the built-in status once it's uploaded.

We also had issues using image metadata, with prehistoric items from museums being
given the date the photo was taken.
