It was written bye me. Danny. Danny-w 18:03, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Translation please? Note that "fair use" is exactly the opposite of "free" in the sense we require here; images cannot be both. Stan Shebs 13:42, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

There is nothing about stamps in the "fair use" part. Stamps are considered to be in "free use". 10:10, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Just writing to confirm that it says above "permitted without limitation" and then, as correctly translated, "copy or scan of a banknote or stamp" (copy = image or photograph). Thanks. So doesn't this allow our obtaining images from the web? HG 21:43, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

The problem with the above hebrew citation is that according to Wikipedia rules another language WP cannot serve as a source of information. We need references to Israeli laws and not just to I cannot exclude the possibility that is in violation of copyright law here. Can this ever be checked by Wikipedians residing in Israel? It is now 2009, and the issue has not been resolved so far. Leonid Dzhepko from Philately Project in --Leonid Dzhepko (talk) 12:21, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Public domain[edit]

I have read this discussion and still cannot understand, whether Israeli stamps are in PD or not? The uncertainty has resulted in lack of Israeli stamps in Wikimedia. Could someone from Israel please:

  • (1) translate into good English the whole clause of Israeli legislation describing the copyright status of Israeli stamps;
  • (2) describe the Israeli stamps status in Commons:Stamps/Public domain; and
  • (3) if the PD status is confirmed, it would be necessary to make a template for Israeli stamps something similar to {{PD-RU-exempt}} or {{Polishsymbol}}.

If the PD status is confirmed, we could upload to WikiCommons images from various Wikipedias. Leonid Dzhepko 12:59, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Section 2(1)III of the Israeli "Copyright Act 1911" (Hebrew text) states:
2.—(1) Copyright in a work shall be deemed to be infringed by any person who, without the consent of the owner of the copyright, does anything the sole right to do which is by this Act conferred on the owner of the copyright: Provided that the following acts shall not constitute the infringement of a copyright:—...
(iii) The making or publishing of paintings, drawings, engravings, or photographs of a work of sculpture or artistic craftsmanship, if permanently situated in a public place, or building, or the making or publishing of paintings, drawings, engravings, or photographs (which are not in the nature of architectural drawings or plans) of any architectural work of art:
A stamp is a piece of "artistic craftsmanship" which is "permanently situated in a public place". That is as far as my understanding of the subject goes.--Golf Bravo 15:50, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Apparently the citation above deals only with the freedom of panorama, and in no way can cover images of stamps or banknotes, which are not the same as "a work of sculpture or artistic craftsmanship, if permanently situated in a public place, or building". So unfortunately this does not answer the question. --Leonid Dzhepko (talk) 12:07, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

New template[edit]

how is this? --kippi70 (talk) 22:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)


A stamp is definitely not pemanently situated anywhere. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 14:13, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

It seems clear the above template is based on a freedom of panorama claim and that stamps do not fall within that. Unless someone can emphatically show anything different then {{PD-Israel}} is the right licence to use which prohibits images newer than 50 years, unless we know there was a different arrangement. This discussion should be brought to Commons talk:Licensing and unfortunately all the non-compliant images should be deleted. Ww2censor (talk) 15:55, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
{{PD-IL-exempt}} redirected to {{FoP-Israel}}. Note {{PD-IsraelGov}} also exists. Rd232 (talk) 09:51, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
