These images are from [1], where it also says that

These images from Folketinget are all for free use, on websites and in publications. [...] If you need a picture then you can send an email to: webmaster@folketinget.dk, then we will see if we can add the picture you need to the collection.

In an email I was told that the comment "source: Folketinget. Free for all to use" was appropriate. I see this as a blanket permission.

That isn't only limited to images in that gallery - there is also images linked from the biographies. I emailed their webmaster and was told that all images on their website are public domain. He wrote:

vedr.:
Tilladelse til brug af billeder fra ft.dk til artikler
De billeder vi bruger på ft.dk er enten fotograferet af Folketingets ansatte eller af professionelle fotografer, hvor vi har betalt ekstra for muligheden for at lægge billederne ud til fri benyttelse.
Jeg har ikke nogen fornemmelse af hvordan Regeringen/Ministerierne håndterer deres illustrationer - der er formentlig ikke nogen fælles :politik på dette område.

As he writes, this only covers images from ft.dk (folketinget.dk), not images from the individual ministries. Thue 17:57, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
