Thanks for all the photos added to WLM-US[edit]

I particularly like File:Beautiful Fields.JPG. Keep 'em coming in!

There are always copyright concerns here - everybody is afraid of getting sued and then having to close down the whole site. And copyright is a hugely complicated area of law. Somebody asked me to point out that File:Alby Gallatin.JPG has a copyrighted statue in it and thus can't be uploaded (without some very difficult to get permissions) and thus will likely be deleted. Who knew! I'd avoid uploading pix of statues for the time being, although I love public art (See my user page).

There are some fairly complicated rules about public art at Commons:Public art and copyrights in the US and I'd love to help you get going in this area, but may not be easily available until after the contest is over.

Thanks again.

All the best,
