There is still a lot of unfree pictures on Commons, since several years 
ago nobody knew about freedom of panorama, and even now, when I 
occasionally nominate some pictures for deletion i get someone asking on 
my talk page why do I do it. Ukraine is in this respect particularly 
bad, and I am seriously concerned about their WLM participation - for 
instance, in the left bank Kiev monuments list all monuments but two 
fall unto the FoP provisions, i.e. they are all copyrighted. And if we 
need to erase thousands of files afterwards, this is not going to have 
us good publicity.

Oh, when I opened the topic in the NRHP WikiProject, I had no idea that 
there are so many issues, interests, and strong opinions involved, it 
looked like much more innocent. Thanks for the intervention, I think it 
was very useful.
