Did you notice, that the scanning station on the picture was invented and built by Bruno with his own mind and hands and made available to Wikipedia for free? Did Charles Andrès ask his permission to publish a photograph of it? Did he attribute its author correctly? Does he work for Wikimedia for free, like Bruno does? Is his photograph even a “work” that CAN be copyrighted?
You people make me sick, when you take the achievements of others and set up a prohibition against their using them!

You say Please embed licensing information in the metadata!!! I invite you to see with jpg. It's a screanshot of the Wikimedia Commons page of this picture. Thanks. Ludovic 2013/10/16 Hartwig Thomas <hartwig.tho...@enterag.ch> To cite another example: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rencontres_Wikimedia_France_-_Intervention_de_Ludovic_P%C3%A9ron.JPG 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!!!

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 that.
