Well.. there where instructions. All the videos were supervised before 
uploading, all the songs were perfectly cited at the descriptions and all the 
own work was marked as own work. This are the instructiones to follow when 
uploading to Commons.

It seems to be a situation where there were no clear instructions, so people 
did what they thought was a good idea, but others thought it was a bad idea. No 
communications, now the blame is being spread without analysing the problem and 
proposing a solution. Not an unusual situation really.
Cheers,
Peter

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Dispute between Common and Outreach

Hello all,

There seems to be a dispute between the Outreach and the Commons components
of The Community, judging by the article "Wikimedia Commons: a highly
hostile place for multimedia students contributions" at the Education
Newsletter

https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/April_2019/Wikimedia_Commons:_a_highly_hostile_place_for_multimedia_students_contributions

As far as I can understand it, some students on an Outreach project
uploaded some rather well-made video material, and comeone on Commons
deleted them because they appeared to well-made to be student projects and
so concluded they were copyright violations.  But some rather odd remarks
were made "Commons has to fight the endless stream of uploaded copyrighted
content on behalf of a headquarters in San Francisco that doesn't care." and
 "you have regarded Commons as little more than free cloud storage for
images you intend to use on Wikipedia ".

Perhaps the Foundation needs to resolve this dispute?
