Germany - exterior only[edit]

Would it be possible to make the description of FoP in Germany more explicit that FoP only applies to exterior public spaces. I read it through but since it it wasn't made explicit, I then uploaded several photographs of paintings taken inside a museum in Germany, only to realize that FoP does not apply to them. The table at the bottom of the page lists "?" under "interior spaces" but unless I'm wrong, it seems commons is has established a consensus of "no" in this case.

It seems explicit already, but you can suggest a specific rewording that you think would make it better. -- Asclepias (talk) 15:40, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

It might seem implicit, but since the words "exterior/outdoors/outside" are not included, it's certainly not explicit. =) How about we just add the word "outside"? e.g.:

“It is possible by § 59 (English translation) of the Urheberrechtsgesetz, the Act on Copyright and Neighboring Rights, to take pictures or otherwise reproduce works that are permanently found outside on public ways, streets or places (e.g. squares, plazas) and to distribute and publicly communicate such copies. This suggests two major properties (permanence and public display) which will be outlined below.”

Also, the table could be changed so that the last column in Germany's row says "No" instead of "?". Thanks. - Illustratedjc (talk) 08:57, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
