===GLAMcamp NYC===

A different version of the article about the GLAMcamp will appear in this month's "This month in GLAM". Regards, HaeB (talk) 23:06, 25 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]

This is all very nice, and it's good to make it official. That being said, there are other pressing issues where clarification from the legal team could be useful. For one thing, the only way that the current battle over the NFCC is going to get settled is with the WMF legal team issuing clarifications on a number of points, most especially NFCC#8 in regards to television screenshots , NFCC#1 in regards to living people (ex. if a person was a notable child actor and is now 50 and still alive, if there are no free images of him as a child does NFCC#1 still apply?) and NFCC#2 (ex. File:Hand of God goal.jpg and this discussion). It would be nice we get a WMF legal staff opinion on these issues, and other issues when they come up. I have been unable to find a way to get in touch with them thus far. Sven Manguard Wha? 18:47, 31 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]
