One problem with that is that the X-ray images that you are most likely to find are the most likely to have been created with the intention of being distributed. On the other hand, if "probably no one will sue" is good enough for you, then you really don't need to ask the legal question in the first place. > Another rule of thumb: Most images, whatever they depict, are also *designed* > to be pleasing > to human aesthetics. I don't understand that. What are you using the term "human aesthetics" to mean? And even if you're true about most, that still leaves a great number which were not. Many images were in fact designed to be aesthetically displeasing. And many others were designed, like the X-ray image, to objectively depict reality. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l
