"Since the exemption only allows for distribution by "means of mass communication", and not for other potential uses (e.g. a student wanting to illustrate an assignment), it does not allow everybody free use. It is also unclear exactly what "occasional" reproduction means."

I think that the term "occasional" reproduction by mass communication is meant to describe television. To prevent copyright problems for news broadcasts. So it will not be necessary to blurr out all copyrighted surroundings. (How is this in France, by the way?) What do you think? --Judithcomm (talk) 14:54, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
In Greece that means no problems for professional photoreportes (equipped with a proper identity card) of any legal mass-media, if in connection with their professional work. And there is plenty of historical photographs of unknown, but domestic origin of authors (and nobody cares then), for the period up to the end of Greek wars (including the civil war ...1949).-- 15:19, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
