Category:Cathedral of Christ the Saviour[edit]

No FoP in Russia. Cathedral is a new building, build 1990s. Images showing the cathedral from this category should be deleted. Halavar (talk) 01:02, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Symbol keep vote.svg Keep Please read w:en:Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. It's exact replica of old design. No new authorship is involved. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:00, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
I know history of this cathedral, not only from this article. I think there is no difference if this is a replica or not. Architects of this new builiding, (including Aleksey Denisov) has Copyrights. But I don't know precise how it looks like in Russia's law.
Copyrights for what? Sure, structural design may be different since new materials may be used during construction. But appearance is old design. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:04, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep The author is en:Konstantin Thon, who died in 1881. Building a new building from old plans doesn't mean that you get 132+ years PMA of copyright. Nyttend (talk) 22:20, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep I'm inclined to agree with Eugene on this one. While there is no doubt creativity and talent involved in building a replica building, the elements we see in these photographs are replicas of Thon's work. I lean towards thinking this does not cross the threshold of originality. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 15:31, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Kept, per EugeneZelenko and others. --rimshottalk 16:33, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
