English: The Little Mermaid is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

A statue of The Little Mermaid (Den Lille Havfrue) is located at Langelinie in the Copenhagen harbour. She stands only 1.25 meter and was sculptured by Copenhagen artist Edvard Eriksen (* 1876; † 1959). He used famous ballerina Ellen Price as inspiration for the face, the statue's body was inspired by his own wife.

Warning: The Little Mermaid is considered a copyrighted work of art by Edvard Eriksen (died 1959) according to Danish law. Thus the copyright for this work of art expires in 2030.

Images of the statue may be considered derivative works. Descendants of this sculptor are known to file lawsuits against derivative works used commercially (see Commons:Forum/Archiv/2007/October#Denkmale in Dänemark and a warning printed in a magazine for professional journalists). The freedom of panorama does not extend to commercial use of works of art that are located in public places if such images constitute the central element of the picture. (§ 24, 2).

In 2008, the artist's descendents filed a lawsuit against Danish artist Bjørn Nørgaard who had used a photo of the statue as part of a collage. The court, however, found that Eriksen's copyright had not been violated since Nørgaard's photo formed only an element in his own work of art and because the artist had only used it in a noncommercial context.
