Hows this one? It's getting there.
* Make the text centre aligned on the image centres.
* Tighten up the vertical spaces.
* Consider putting this disclaimer inside the right column, to
reduce the space from "Upload" to the File Browser field.

* Talk about CC/GPL/MPL/etcetc licence incompatibility
* Talk about the obvious copyrights and trademarks
* Talk about researching your sources
* Talk about "Why is this important?"
* There are pages (Ocal+Wiki) already around that mention how to

Copy and Paste, and re-write.
* Talk about questions to ask about public domain questions, and
* Rename the wiki page if you feel it needs a better title.
