wikipedia deletes Free Speech PS3 flag

decora writes "Less than 24 hours after a new PS3 Free Speech flag (based on the one at Yale Law & Tech) was uploaded to wikipedia for use in the GeoHot, Illegal Number, and Playstation 3 articles, it has been deleted. No discussion occured and no reason was given, other than a mention of 'potential copyright violation' in the Playstsion 3 article history. Deletion can be confirmed by Googling the PS3 key plus the word 'flag' and looking at the Wikimedia Commons hit.

However, a similar PS3 Free Speech flag, uploaded to Wikimedia Commons by user Julyo over a month ago, NewFreeSpeechFlag.svg, remains in tact."
