Yes, that would definitely leave us with some implications:
* People would have to preselect their upload platform based on copyright
* Those could not upload through Flickr etc (because CCBYSA etc cannot be
* Tourists would not be allowed to upload under this doctrine because they
do not fall under Estonian law - so you would have to check for this too
* You have to be quite sure that this is really legally sane (I believe you
on your word, but just realize this)
* It probably makes showing images on a map etc technically and graphically
more challenging because you are working from multiple sources and you need
to display them differently
I don't want to tell you what to do or not to do, but I do hope that you
thought about resolving these issues in an as simple as possible way :)
