Hi, as you may know Europeana has been sponsoring special categories within
Wiki Loves Monuments competitions since 2011, and have also run the pilot
project Wikipedia Loves Public Art. Europeana is now interested in
harvesting from Wikimedia Commons to Europeana the images resulting from
those projects, that this means the imported images will be displayed as
items in the portal and  in API-responses. A thumbnail (max 200 px width)
will be created and cached by Europeana but any larger image displayed or
linked to will be a link/hotlink. But one doubt has been raised:

Europeana metadata is CC-O Licencsed but...what about Wikimedia Commons
metadata?  Images can be licensed separately (CC-BY-SA, CC-BY, PD...): does
the related metada keeps the same license for the metadata or the metadata
is considered CC-O ? Most of the metadata related with these WLM pic is
referred to public heritage lists information.

Following http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Welcome remains unclear
if Europeana needs to ask each individual Wikimedia Commons user before
doing the harvesting.

Which would be the easiest way of doing it? What do you think about it?

Looking forward to your considerations.
