EU squashes bogus copyright scare as red-faced Guardian slaps down Wiki's Wales

Just Enough
FAIL

Wrong!

"Wales claims that "Wikipedia only uses freely licensed images", but the site is full of copyright infringement, from books to record covers."

Amazing what you can prove when taking a statement out of context. Wales was referring to Wikipedia's images of architecture, it being what is being discussed in the article. Not books and record covers

Images of book and record covers are only used under the US legal definition of "fair use". That means they aren't copyright infringement.
