...Unless otherwise specified?--Steven Fruitsmaak (Talk) 20:50, 16 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
No, it's pretty simple. There are a number of sites that select from our articles, display them alongside advertising and other content, and rely on our license permitting them to do so. Therefor we cannot take an image that has an incompatible license. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:54, 16 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
