Non-free media rationale[edit source]

On our Main Page it states "Wikiversity is a Wikimedia Foundation project devoted to learning resources, learning projects, and research for use in all levels, types, and styles of education from pre-school to university, including professional training and informal learning. We invite teachers, students, and researchers to join us in creating open educational resources and collaborative learning communities. To learn more about Wikiversity, try a guided tour, learn about adding content, or start editing now." This meets the requirement of the WMF regarding the non-free media rationale and complies with US Copyright Law section 107 which does not require a "non-free media rationale" on any educational (non-commercial use only) image. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 22:01, 9 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

BTW all of the other WMF projects do not include words like "research", "education", "training", and "educational" on their Main Pages because they are not. They have to include a Fair use rationale in order to clarify what the fair use is being used for. If they do not it is a copyright violation. Here at Wikiversity it is clear to anyone that we alone of the WMF projects meet and comply with the fair use exemption as long as we declare the file as Fair use. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 00:00, 10 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]
