[Wikimedia-l] Re: [AID Project] Contributing to intangible cultural heritage on Wikimedia Projects
Dear Galder,

Thank you for the kind words. I am happy to provide additional information
about the copyright status of the audio files.

We have an elicitation protocol for the recordings. This includes
information about the nature of the recording, the date and time of
recording, the full name of the voice artist, and other information such as
location, etc.

Prior to each recording, we informed participants about the intended
license (CC-BY-SA), and permissions were granted.

Attributions are also provided during uploads to Wikimedia Commons.

I hope this is helpful.
