Finnish Copyright Act title and year[edit]

{{Editprotected}} Currently the template refers to the Finnish copyright law. However Copyright Act is the title used in the published English translation of the act. I think this should be fixed. It also refers it as the "law of 2005", although it was enacted in 1961. (The section 49a was last amended in 2015.). So, I would write the sentence as follows: "The section 49a of the Finnish Copyright Act of 1961 specifies that photograph ––". ––Apalsola tc 16:33, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Maybe "The section 49a of the Finnish Copyright Act of 1961 (amended in 2015) specifies that photograph ––" ? --Jarekt (talk) 14:16, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
@Jarekt, yes, that would probably be good. Another option is to include the act number, a common practice in Finland, as follows: "The section 49a of the Finnish Copyright Act (404/1961, amended 607/2015) specifies that photograph ––" ––Apalsola tc 15:01, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
