- You wrote: "[W]hat is the problem? This is a picture of a banknote, legal tender of Singapore that you chose to have removed." Unfortunately, banknotes contain artistic works, and are thus copyrightable. Under Singapore law, works of the Government are copyrighted for 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which they are made or published: see the note at "Category:Banknotes of Singapore". The two-dollar note you uploaded was issued by the Government in 1999. Therefore, it will only be out of copyright after 31 December 2069. — SMUconlaw (talk) 16:51, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
