--- Comment #11 from Shonagon <> ---
IMHO a very big issue with semantic web.
Already on DBpedia and now on wikidata, there is currently  no way to get 
automatically metadata of a mediafile. On wikidata with the very used property
p18,, the data is queryable by API
but it's not possible to get basic information such as licence or author. In
the near future, and it has already begun,  we will probably see a big
dissemination of data and content via semantic technologies ; Wikimedia Commons
mediafile are not ready.

I should be better to provide first simple and necessary information as licence
and author (and maybe source). Those metadata should have to be simply
accessible by programs and to be systematically provided by API or embedded
metadata (EXIF, IPTC, XMP...)
The risk of big failure is that if nothing is done, it will be impossible to
display simply those information in semantic flows even for those who would to,
