Most of my recent activity on here involves upload and clean up of text images for use on Wikisource projects, especially the English Wikisource. I occasionally move things from the English Wikipedia when I find them. I am particularly experienced in copyright issues and am always willing to discuss copyright law, especially with respect to the United States.
