Commons talk:Freedom of panorama campaign
Scope of lobbying
If legislators are reluctant to pass a law allowing laxer FoP rules in the US, maybe they could pass a law which says the following (assuming it does not run afoul of international treaties):
- "Any piece of artwork which is permanently placed into the public square in a country other than the United States: anyone may take pictures or otherwise reproduce these works, if, in the country in which the artwork is situated, this right already exists according to its copyright laws."
- Seems like a good suggestion if full FoP turns out to be a difficult goal. Kaldari (talk) 01:40, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
I'm hoping to talk to someone knowledgeable about this next week. It will probably just be a brief conversation. What can I read so I'll have all my facts straight? What's the simplest, cleanest example of the practical side of the problem? What's the #1 take-home message? WhatamIdoing (talk) 09:16, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
I came here to sign up
but decided to read the article first and the second or third word that I ran into was "most ". And I thought, "I am not sure that MOST countries have freedom of panorama." I just looked at a map of Europe, for example, and it seemed to me that "most" did not. So I am reluctant to join something that i have a problem with the third word I read. Or . ... is this like any wikipedia (where I live) article in that i can change "most" to "many" and see what happens? Let me know, Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 22:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
