Although I am a licensed attorney, I am not licensed in any of the jurisdictions that would be relevant to Wikimedia projects (e.g., California, Florida, the American federal courts, or outside the United States). In law school, I did not take any intellectual property courses. Outside of law school, I have not done any research or work related to copyright, copyleft licenses, or other issues relevant to Commons or Wikipedia. Unless otherwise noted, any opinion I express related to image or file issues on Commons is based on my experience with Commons' policies and processes, and has no other foundation or basis in American law. Any such opinion is not intended as legal advice for you or anyone else. Any communication on Commons, on Wikipedia, or by email related to Wikimedia projects is not intended to create, nor does it create, an attorney-client relationship. If you need legal advice, you should consult an intellectual property attorney that is licensed in the relevant jurisdiction.--Chaser (talk) 03:41, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
