To cite another example:


states clearly, that the license is CC-BY-SA, but – very unfortunately indeed – 
it does not unambiguously attribute the authorship!! Or does “user” mean 
“copyright owner”???

So how can one make use of WMCH content, if it is not attributed decently in 
the Wikimedia repository?


Whenever the license CC-BY-SA is used, an unambiguous attribution must 
accompany it. Otherwise it is to be assumed, that the copyright owner has 
relinquished the attribution to Wikimedia.


Please embed licensing information in the metadata!!!

I found this web 
  page on the web site of BJ Institute. 


Problem : This image is a CC By SA photography on Commons and the credit is 
wrong (good credit : Charles Andrès - CC By SA). Seeing this on the website of 
one of our partners, which happens to be run by one of our board members, makes 
me especially concerned about our credibility.


Me, and some other volunteers of WMCH, spend many times to explain how to use 
correctly free contents. We are discussing with nationals media, with some 
schools, etc. 


We (and WMCH) loose our credibility if our contacts see this web page. 


So, thanks you to make correction very quickly. 


And I think it's necessary that our regular partners will be blameless about 
copyright. May be it's possible to make internal workshops. I am available for
