Portugal missing[edit]

Portugal is strangely missing in the list "Copyright terms by country". --Túrelio (talk) 11:35, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Lapel Badge, UK[edit]

HI anyone who can help. A campaigning lapel badge sold to help CND or other anti-nuclear campaigning 50+ years ago was declared 'copyright' by a friend of ours in Wiki. I bought it for a few pence 50+ years ago - and wouldn't have thought... by common-sense, if not by law, that it could be objected to on copyright grounds. Opinions welcome. Tony in Devon (talk)

The issue is with the photo on the badge. Ideally we would need to know who is the photographer. Interesting problem. It is probably not old enough to be in the public domain, but we could ask for a free license, if we get more information. I can't find a copy of the same picture on Google, so it won't be easy to find its copyright status. Yann (talk) 21:20, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
