There are several reports of face recognition going mainstream, often
in less than optimum circumstances, and often violating copyright and
licenses

In my opinion building a model for face recognition is a derived work,
and as such must credit the photographers. That pose a real problem
when the photographers counts in the millions and billions. Even a 1px
fine print would be troublesome!

What is the official stance on this? Is it a copyright infringement or
not, does the license(s) cover the case or not?
