Coin photos/scans[edit]

I had a question about the applicability of the Bridgeman v. Corel standard. I know this usually applies to 2-D artwork, but based on my reading of the finding, the core issue is uncreativity; i.e. a "slavish reproduction" does not qualify for its own copyright. Would this also apply to coin photos or scans that are taken straight-on? In these cases, there may be substantial technical skill, but no creativity involved.

Questions have come up about the legality of bestiality and other paraphilias. There's also general confusion as to what jurisdiction Wikimedia falls in. The head office, and main contact is in California. The registry also list California. I've also heard that the servers are still in Florida. This court precedant would indicate that jurisdiction is where the registry is. It would seem that it would be best to follow BOTH Florida and California law, if not comply with laws in all 50 states. Also, can you make a note on your inactive account User:MikeGodwin, it's very confusing. - Stillwaterising (talk) 05:42, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi Mike, thanks for dropping by. I've added the personality template to your portraits, just for your own protection, not due to any problem. --Túrelio (talk) 19:48, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
