Scope of lobbying[edit]

If legislators are reluctant to pass a law allowing laxer FoP rules in the US, maybe they could pass a law which says the following (assuming it does not run afoul of international treaties):

  • "Any piece of artwork which is permanently placed into the public square in a country other than the United States: anyone may take pictures or otherwise reproduce these works, if, in the country in which the artwork is situated, this right already exists according to its copyright laws."

Of course IANAL so the wording isn't perfect, but you get the general idea. What do you all think? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:28, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Seems like a good suggestion if full FoP turns out to be a difficult goal. Kaldari (talk) 01:40, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Elevator speech[edit]

I'm hoping to talk to someone knowledgeable about this next week. It will probably just be a brief conversation. What can I read so I'll have all my facts straight? What's the simplest, cleanest example of the practical side of the problem? What's the #1 take-home message? WhatamIdoing (talk) 09:16, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

I came here to sign up[edit]

but decided to read the article first and the second or third word that I ran into was "most ". And I thought, "I am not sure that MOST countries have freedom of panorama." I just looked at a map of Europe, for example, and it seemed to me that "most" did not. So I am reluctant to join something that i have a problem with the third word I read. Or . ... is this like any wikipedia (where I live) article in that i can change "most" to "many" and see what happens? Let me know, Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 22:56, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
