Image:Semailname 47b.jpg[edit]

Hello there,

It is good that you pay attention to copyright issues such as in Image:Semailname 47b.jpg. However in this case, it is irrelevant that the image came from a book, a webpage or whatever. The overriding copyright belongs to Nakkas Osman. Please read the copyright tag to pd-art carefully "This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired. This applies to the United States, Canada, the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years.", which applies to works of art from Turkey as well. Please refer to Help:Public domain for further information. sincerely Gryffindor 06:35, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

So, I can took everey picture out of a book, if the original is older than 70 years??? What about the photographer, the copyright holder? If a photographer makes a picture of an old church (older than 70 years), in a new book, I can scan this picture? That can't be true... sincerely --Lynxxx 10:45, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

This applies to works of art in two dimensions. Photographs of sculptures, churches, buildings, etc. are a different thing since that would be in three dimensions. But a photograph of for example the Mona Lisa in two dimensions (meaning full-frontal picture) can theoretically be taken into the Commons, since the prime copyright holder is Leonardo da Vinci. The copyright for public domain images in 2 dimensions is life of the author plus 70 years. Which means that at the moment, a painter or photographer has to have died by year 2008-70 = 1938.

OK, now I accept temporarily this rule of Wiki, and ask a lawyer for further details. Thank for your response, I'll delete my delete-question in this moment. Bye --Lynxxx 11:02, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
No problem, enjoy editing :-) Gryffindor 14:54, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
