- The images are actually used, Commons is not like a stamp collection
- Researching things like copyright is something that we do
- Providing updates to the meta data was important to the Bundesarchiv
- The material is used in projects in many languages
The arguments why Commons should be an obvious partner are easy to make. The benefits to Commons and our projects are equally obvious. We have to figure out how to be inclusive and how to reach out to the archives and museums of countries where we are thin on the ground. This is important because this is how we prevent systemic bias.
