An opinion[edit]

I understand "occasional/casual reproduction and communication by the mass media of images of architectural works, etc" should be taken as these works cannot be photographed freely, but if the photographer is photographing a person or an "event" present/occurring in front of these works (for example a demonstration or cultural activity -like the one in File:Street dance in 2018 next to the 11th century Byzantine Church of Panagia Kapnikarea.jpg- or a traffic accident etc) then this "occasional image" is alright. An opinion only... --E4024 (talk) 19:11, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

  • A lot of countries allow "incidental reproduction" by the media where the copyrighted work is not the main subject. In Greece the photographer would own copyright in the photograph, which would expire 70 years after their death. It could be uploaded by the photographer under a free license, but the concern in Commons would be whether someone could take the photograph and crop it down so the protected work becomes the main subject. I would say that if the protected work is partially obscured and the photo is free then we should be o.k. My opinion only. Aymatth2 (talk) 22:28, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
