RedCoat 18:08, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello and thank you for your email. The image is a copyright violation because it is a photograph of a copyrighted, non-free two-dimensional work of art, a derivative work. By taking a photograph with a copyrighted sculpture as its main subject, the photographer creates a new, copyrighted work (the photograph), but the rights of the sculpture still affect the resulting photograph. Such a photograph could not be published without the consent of both copyright holders: the photographer and the sculptor. I hope this helps. And please do not re-create the image, but request undeletion at Commons:Undeletion requests if you still feel it is necessary. Thanks, RedCoat 21:08, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Blmurch 21:22, 26 January 2008 (UTC) Can you show me where in Argentine copyright law that is stated? I am unaware of such a statute.

I am afraid I cannot since I am not a lawyer. I can, however, direct you to COM:DW#What is a derivative work? where derivative works are defined by U.S. law. Since the Commons servers are located in the U.S., uploads of non-U.S. works are allowed "only if the work is covered by a free license valid in both the U.S. and the country of origin of the work".

You can find all your pictures in your upload log, and are of course very welcome to keep uploading images and help develop Wikimedia Commons, even though you will not be able to win more prizes (just yet).

If you'd like to start editing relevant Wikipedia articles and share your knowledge with other people, please go to the Wikipedia Welcome page for more information, guidance, and help.

To make future contests even more successful than this year, we would like to invite you to share your experiences with us in a short survey. Please fill in this short survey in your own language, and help us learn what you liked and didn't like about Wiki Loves Monuments 2013.

Kind regards,
