EgonWillighagen added a comment to T193148: How does the GDPR affect Wikimedia sites and Wikibase instances?.

LIBER Europe had an interesting webinar yesterday [0], tho aimed at academic research (so, only covering living scholar, for example). There are many aspects, but I feel this should indeed be covered at a WMF level. One aspect that makes Wiki${Foo} special is that it covered two types of personal information: the user accounts on one side, and personal information as data on the other side.

@Fnielsen, we could add the JavaScript to run the queries in a way that it only runs when the <div> is visible... e.g. with something like this: https://github.com/shaunbowe/jquery.visibilityChanged

Hi all, IANAL but have been professionally dealing with copyright for quite some time now (scholar, author, database creator, advisor, etc, etc).

Let's recall that whether this transfer is done by automation or crowdsourcing doesn't matter, it's the quantity of transferred data

I am not sure how much we should worry about the exact percentages for PubChem; to me, more important is are the percentages of the chemistry we have in Wikidata. These are likely correlated, and since PubChem is a lot bigger puts things in perspective. InChIs are identifiers, but not as we are common too, and I understand the point about indexing and ID length.

The InChI is not the only use case for chemistry, btw. SMILES also runs into the char limit right now for a number of compounds.
