Una imagen de un sello de correos debe estar en el dominio público, o licencia libremente, antes de poder cargarla en Wikimedia Commons.

Las reglas de los derechos de autor para sellos varían de un país a otro. Los sellos pueden considerarse obras gubernamentales que no están protegidas por derechos de autor, aunque puede haber restricciones de no derechos de autor sobre las formas en que se pueden usar los sellos. Pueden considerarse obras gubernamentales o corporativas que están protegidas por derechos de autor por un período definido, como 50 años después de la emisión. El término de los derechos de autor puede ser basarse en la vida de los contribuyentes al diseño del sello, y puede extenderse por 70 años o más después de la muerte del último sobreviviente.

El objetivo de esta página del proyecto es aclarar la situación de los derechos de autor de los sellos postales. Contiene información "transcluida" de páginas que describen las reglas relevantes para cada país.

Yet the 1992 law gave a 25 years copyright protection (starting from the publication date). This means that all UAE postage stamps printed before 1977 are in public domain.

Public domain? According to the Law of May 19, 1999, on Copyright and Neighboring Rights, "Copyright protection shall not subsist in ... means of payment".[1999-2006 Art.5]

However, Liechtenstein generally emulates Swiss law, and Liechtenstein's Copyright Act is based on the Swiss text. The majority of Swiss copyright law commentaries does not consider stamps "means of payment".[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]It is therefore likely that Liechtenstein stamps are protected by copyright as well.

In the past, {{PD-Liechtenstein}} was used for uploads of stamps from Liechtenstein, but this should not be done in the future, unless it's possible to produce evidence for the public domain claim.

The Post Office Act (1933, 1977) does not mention copyright.[11]The Copyright Acts 2002 states that,

  • For a collective work other than a work of applied art ... the economic and moral rights are protected for fifty years from the date on which the work was either made, first made available to the public, or first published, whichever date is the latest.[2002 Sec.18]
  • A "work of applied art" is an artistic creation with utilitarian functions or incorporated in a useful article, whether made by hand or produced on an industrial scale.[2002 Sec.2] The economic and moral rights are protected for twenty five years the making of the work.[2002 Sec.18]

Thus, any stamp published more than 50 years ago should be in the public domain.

Unión Postal universal/ WADP/ WNS

  La Unión Postal Universal, junto con la Asociación Mundial para el Desarrollo de la Filatelia (WADP), ha desarrollado el Sistema de Numeración WADP (WNS), lanzado el 1 de enero de 2002. El sitio web (www.wnsstamps.ch/en/) ha entradas para unos 160 países y entidades postales emisoras, con más de 25,000 sellos registrados desde 2002. Muchos de ellos tienen imágenes, que generalmente tienen derechos de autor del país emisor, pero que la UPU y el WADP permiten que se descarguen.
