This feature implementation requires creation of a userrole called 'legal admin' so that some of the members who are part of this team can only change this metadata.

Once this is implemented it allows for implementation of https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?23105

In order to have the necessary information for https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?23102 and so the Legal Experts Group can take measures to ensure the legal status of SELF, each element needs to have a "Copyright history" attribute that contains the information about previous occurences of Copyright being contested, and their resolution.

The LEG will need an administrative interface in which the following actions are possible to take on the legal information of Materials:

  - Block (Copyright/license unclear) (with comment field)
  - Unblock (Copyright/license clarified) (with comment field)
  - Change Copyright (with comment field)
  - Change License (with comment field)

Every time someone contests materials, this should be logged together with user id/email and date in the Copyright history.

All changes to the legal status should be logged with
 - comment field for explanations
 - date
 - user id of user making the change

This is necessary to keep records of how the legality has evolved over time, and to identify and filter out duplicate challenges.
