I think such a discussion is crucial - I mean  if the local Wikipedia
community decided to allow upload of pictures which are... say..
"barely legal"  my suggestion would be not to accept them for
competition, just because we cannot encourge potential copyright
violation habbits. But if they are perfectly legal in country of
origin - why not?
