I downloaded the app for android - it is very limited (particularly
compared to our WLM app), but when you select a monument to photograph it
asks you to confirm that the photo be licensed appropriately - at least
monuments near me are prompting for CC-BY-SA license. I presume [perhaps
incorrectly] that they're pulling the correct license information for the
campaigns, but I cannot be sure. However, the license does not appear to be
appropriately honored on their site and it is unclear how the photos get to
commons (or even if they do at all).
It would probably be wise to follow up with human.io to get these questions
answered publicly so users are not in danger of being misled.
