Copyright status not updating correctly

Platform : Website

Browser : Checked on both Safari and Firefox, is an issue on both.

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages:

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

Step 1: Go to the observation linked.

Step 2: Hover over the photo of the observation. In the copyright tooltip, it says CC-BY-NC.

Step 3: Go to the Copyright Info further down the page, where it says CC-BY.

The copyright statuses aren’t updating correctly, even when the observers have changed them. I’m currently trying to get observers to change the copyright statuses to CC-BY for poorly-observed species so that the photos can be imported to Wikipedia. The conflicting copyright information means that I can’t use the automatic tool for this, and that the bot which automatically checks images from iNaturalist flags these as copyright violations.

That refers to the observation data, not the photo. There can be two different licenses for two different types of content.
