Public domain in Minnesota[edit]

Hi Kablammo. I recently stumbled into the quagmire surrounding the copyright status of works produced by the state of Minnesota. I've read the Attorney General's opinion and the comments on the talk page for the PD-MN template. I've contacted the specific agency that handles the images I'm interested in and I have some inclination to follow this up the food chain to see where it leads. Any advice?

I had forgotten about this issue. The opinion of the attorney general (of which I was unaware when I created the template) led me to the opinion that it should not be used.[1] As best I can tell (although I have not researched it), the issue remains unsettled. I suggest you contact the Minnesota Department of Administration, which I believe is the agency which can best advise you. Regards, Kablammo (talk) 14:02, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll give that a try. Gobonobo (talk) 17:47, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Good luck. Let me know what you find out. Kablammo (talk) 19:42, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
