[Wiki Loves Monuments] Copyvio checking

Yes, copyvio's are always a problem - although last year there were
/relatively/ (compared to normal commons uploads) few. It seems this year
it's a bit more.

I would suggest to disqualify early - or else you may forget about it. Some
countries used for this purpose a categorization system: they inserted a
category through the form automatically (something about 'unchecked') and
would simply change that to 'checked' if they checked the image fit the
description in the database.

>> Hello.
>> I have detected that a participant just uploaded photographs he found on
>> internet, so I must proceed to mark them for deletion. Sigh.
>> My question is, Does someone know about any [semi-]automated tool to
>> verify if uploaded images already existed? I use Google image search, but
>> that tool requires checking single images at a time.
>> Thanks,
