Pine, why are you pinging WMF Legal on this? It is considerably premature to expect them to do anything much more than read the relevant discussions, maybe, if they have an intern to spare. What action do you expect them to take, when the community has yet to determine whether or not its own standards have been met, whether there is actually an issue, here, whether what the user in question is doing is actually wrong or is well within the acceptable parameters of that project. Should the community involved believe that they need assistance on this matter, they will then be able to decide if it is necessary to discuss with WMF Legal. Looking at this user's talk page at dewp and Commons, nobody seems to have raised the issue directly with him on-wiki.
Calling upon WMF staff and expecting them to deal with all kinds of issues that are not ripe for their attention, are still being addressed within the relevant community, or (as in this case) are not being discussed in the relevant community at all, is not really appropriate, and I for one would appreciate if you'd stop doing that.
