Citing Sreejith above.

"Currently Wikipedia projects are hosted in US and all media files
uploaded to these projects should be copyright free in the source
country of origin and also in US."

Also:

http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Copyright_policy

"The copyright laws applicable to Wikisource are primarily those of
the United States of America, where the physical Wikimedia servers are
located. The United States is not obliged to extend copyright beyond
what it would be in the author's own country, and virtually all
countries have copyrights that last for the author's life plus some
number of years."

I don't have a specific example, Shiju. Was thinking out aloud.

Thank you.

Best,

Gautam
