This photograph is acceptable as the copyrighted images appearing on the screens are de minimis.

De minimis is a Latin expression meaning about minimal things, normally in the locution de minimis non curat lex ("The law does not concern itself with trifles"). De minimis use of a copyrighted work is such a trivial use that the consent of the copyright owner is not required.

デ・ミニミス(De minimis)ささいな事を意味するラテン語表現で、de minimis non curat lex(法はささいな事にこだわらない)という言い方で使われます。著作物のデ・ミニミスは著作権者の許諾が必要でないそのようなささいな利用のことです。日本ではいわゆる写り込みという言葉で表現されます。


In some cases Commons files with copyrighted content considered acceptable as de minimis may be identified with the template {{de minimis}}. (However, the vast majority of such files are not identified in this way.)

コモンズではいくつかのケースでデ・ミニミスとして受け入れ可能だと考えられる著作権のあるコンテンツを含むファイルは{{de minimis}}テンプレートを付して識別されるかもしれません。

"デ・ミニミス"とは何か What is "de minimis"?Edit

The Common Law concept known as de minimis is derived from the maxim de minimis non curat lex, often translated as "the law does not concern itself with trifles". Some technical breaches of the law are considered to be so trivial and inconsequential that a court may decide that they should not be treated as breaches at all. The concept applies to many branches of the law, but here we consider its application specifically to copyright law.

If proved in court, de minimis can be a complete defence to a copyright infringement action. It is not simply that that an infringer can get away with some things without much chance of being sued due to the high cost of litigation; rather, that if the copying is de minimis the copier is not in fact breaking the law at all.

慣習法の概念de minimisは、ラテン語表現のde minimis non curat lexから来ています。これはしばしば、"法はささいな事にこだわらない"と訳されています。いくつかの技術的な法の違反はあまりにもささいであり取るに足らないので法廷はそれを違法として取り扱わないと決定するかもしれないと考えられています。この概念は法律の多くの分野に適用されています。しかし、ここでは我々は著作権法に限ってその適用を考えます。

もし法廷で証明されたら、デ・ミニミスは著作権侵害行為に対する完璧な抗弁となりえます。このことは、単に侵害者が訴訟費用が高いので訴えられることはほぼない状態で逃げられるというものではなく、むしろデ・ミニミスをコピーしてもコピーした人は法律に全然違反していないということです。

An exampleひとつの事例Edit

通りの風景の一部として背景に著作権が保護された映画のポスター("The Dark Knight")が写り込んでいる

Assume we have a photograph with a copyright-protected poster in the background. There are two copyrights involved: that of the photographer and that of the poster-designer, and both may subsist independently. In taking the photograph and uploading it to Commons, the photographer will of course be making a copy of the poster design, and without consent that will generally be an infringement and hence not allowed. The fact that the photographer has created a new copyright of his/her own does not prevent the poster copyright from being infringed, and that is so even if the photograph displays a high level of originality itself.

著作権が保護されたポスターが背景に写り込んだ写真があるとしましょう。ここではふたつの著作権が関係しています。写真撮影者の著作権とポスターのデザイナーの著作権です。このふたつは独立して存在しています。この写真を撮影しコモンズに投稿すると、撮影者は、もちろん許諾を得ずにポスターデザインをコピーすることになります。従ってこれは通常著作権の侵害になりコモンズでは受け入れられません。撮影者が撮影することによって新たな著作権を創りだしたという事実はポスターの著作権が侵害されないということではありません。たとえその写真が高いレベルの創作性を示していてもそうです。


However, if the poster is entirely incidental to the overall subject-matter of the photograph, the copying may be considered de minimis (perhaps the poster takes up a small, insignificant part of the image, is entirely out of focus compared with the main subject, or is largely hidden in the background). In other words, a court would not be quick to uphold a claim of copyright infringement just because a photographer happened to include accidentally and incidentally a copyright-protected poster.

しかしながら、もしポスターが写真の被写体全体に対して完全に付随的ならば、コピーはデ・ミニミスとみなされるかもしれません。(おそらく、ポスターは小さくて、画像の中の取るに足らない部分で、主要な被写体と比べて完全にピンぼけであるか、または背景に大部分が隠されているかです) 別の言い方をすると、著作権が保護されたポスターがたまたまあるいは付随的に含まれた写真を撮ったことを理由に法廷は著作権侵害の訴えをすぐには支持しないであろうということです。


In determining whether the copying was sufficiently trivial, the court will consider all the circumstances. So, for example, if the poster forms an essential part of the overall photographic composition, or if the photograph was taken deliberately to include the poster, there is likely to be copyright infringement, and it is no defence to say that the poster was 'just in the background'. If the existence of the poster was the reason the photograph was taken in the first place, copyright infringement cannot be avoided by additionally including within the frame more of the setting or the surrounding area.

コピーが十分にささいなものであるかどうかを決定するにあたり、法廷はすべての状況を考慮するでしょう。もし、ポスターが写真全体の構成の主要な部分を形作っていたり、または写真がポスターを故意に含むような構図で撮影されたら、著作権侵害である可能性があります。ここでポスターが「単なる背景」に写っていたという主張は弁護の余地はありません。もしポスターの存在が写真を撮る第一の理由なら、構図の中に周囲の状況や風景以上のものを加える事によって著作権の侵害をしたことは免れないです。

If the existence of the poster makes the image more attractive, more usable, or liable to cause more than insignificant economic damage to the copyright owner, then a de minimis defence to a copyright-infringement action will probably fail.

もしポスターの存在が画像をより他の人を引きつけたり、より利用されやすくなったり、取るに足らないもの以上の経済的損失を著作権所有者に対してもたらすおそれがあるなら、それは著作権侵害行為に対してデ・ミニミスであるという抗弁はおそらく失敗するでしょう。

It may be relevant how the image is described or classified: it will be difficult to argue de minimis if the photograph is described as illustrating "an advertising poster" and is placed within the category Advertising posters.

画像がどのように説明されてカテゴリ分類されているかも関係しているでしょう。もし写真が「宣伝ポスター」を示すものとして説明されており、宣伝ポスターのカテゴリに置かれていたら、デ・ミニミスと主張するのは厳しいでしょう。

A useful test may be to ask whether the photograph would be as good or as useful if the poster were to be masked out. If no, then it is difficult to argue that the poster is actually de minimis, even if the poster is small and is "in the background".

役に立つテストは、仮にポスターがマスクされて見えなくされても写真が十分に役に立つかどうかを自問自答してみることでしょう。もし答えがノーなら、ポスターは実質的にデ・ミニミスと主張することは難しいです。たとえポスターが小さくて「背景にある」としてもです。

ガイドラインGuidelinesEdit

Variations in laws and in uses of works mean that firm rules are not possible. As a general guideline, however, a file containing copyrighted work X is less likely to satisfy de minimis the more of these it meets: 法律や作品の利用がいろいろあるので確固としたルールは難しいです。しかしながら一般的なガイドラインとして、著作物 X を含むファイルは次の条件に合致すればするほどデ・ミニミスの条件を満たす可能性は低いです。

  • the file is in use to illustrate X
  • the file is categorised in relation to X
  • X is referenced in the filename
  • X is referenced in the description
  • X cannot be removed from the file without making the file useless
  • from other contextual clues (eg by comparison with a series of uploads by the same uploader) X is the reason for the creation of the file.


  • ファイルは X を説明するために使われている(たとえばウィキペディアの X の記事にリンクが張ってある)
  • ファイルは X に関連するカテゴリに入っている
  • ファイル名に X が参照されている
  • ファイルの説明に X が参照されている
  • X をファイルから除去するとファイルが意味のないものになる
  • 他の状況を考慮して(例えば、同一の投稿者からの一連の投稿ファイルと比較してみて)、 X がファイルを作成した動機である


Note: de minimis consideration applies to a specific image composition. Significant cropping to focus on the copyrighted work can very easily turn a "probably OK" into a "probably not OK".


注意: デ・ミニミスの検討は画像の特定の構成要素に適用します。 従って、著作権のある作品に焦点を当てた切り取り(cropping)は簡単に「多分 OK 」から「多分 NG 」になってしまいます。

デ・ミニミスと考えらるケースCase can be considered de minimis 説明
✓OK Yes, definitely はい、間違いなく Copyrighted work X is visible, but not identifiable 著作権のある作品 X は見えるが、判別できない
✓OK Very likely その可能性は高いです Copyrighted work X is identifiable, but is an unwanted intrusion to the image subject which unfortunately cannot easily be removed. 著作権のある作品 X は判別できる、しかしそれは画像の被写体に対する望まない写り込みであり残念ながら取り除くことができない
✓OK Very likely その可能性は高いです Copyrighted work X is identifiable, but is a small part of a larger work, so that the larger work cannot easily be shown without showing X. X is a part of the larger work, and its inclusion is unavoidable. 著作権のある作品 X は判別できる、しかしそれは大きな作品の小さな部分であり、X を示さないで大きな作品を簡単に表示できない。Xは大きな作品の一部分であり、かつその写り込みは避けられない。
✓OK Very likely その可能性は高いです Copyrighted work X is identifiable and an unavoidable part of the image subject, but is not essential to the subject (blacking it out would not make the file useless)著作権のある作品 X は判別可能で、かつ画像の被写体の一部として避けられない一部である、しかしながらそれは被写体にとって不可欠なものではない(それを黒く塗りつぶしてもファイルが使い物にならないわけではない)
Pictogram voting question.svg Maybe 多分 Copyrighted work X is identifiable and an unavoidable part of the subject, and is essential to the subject (eg blacking it out would make the file useless) but the work is shown in insufficient detail and/or with insufficient clarity, so de minimis may apply. 著作権のある作品 X は判別できる、かつ被写体の避けられない部分である、そしてそれは被写体にとって不可欠なものである。(例えば、それを黒く塗りつぶすとファイルが使い物にならない) しかしながら、作品は詳細が充分でない状態で表示されている、かつあるいはまたは充分でない明瞭度で表示されている。したがってデ・ミニミスが適用出来るかもしれない。
✘ Very unlikely その可能性は低いです Copyrighted work X is a key part of the subject (eg it is the reason for taking the photo). Removing it would make the derivative work radically different, but potentially still useful. 著作権のある作品 X は被写体の鍵となる部分です(たとえば、それが写真を撮る理由です) それを除去することは二次的著作物を根本的に違ったものにするでしょう、しかしそれでもまだ利用価値があるかもしれないです。
✘ Definitely not 絶対にダメ Copyrighted work X is the central part of the subject (eg it is the reason for taking the photo). Removing it would make the derivative work useless. 著作権のある作品 X は被写体の主要な部分である(たとえば、それが写真を撮る理由です)。それを除去することはこの二次的著作物を利用価値の無いものにしてしまう。

GermanyEdit

§ 57 UrhG says:

§ 57 Unwesentliches Beiwerk
Zulässig ist die Vervielfältigung, Verbreitung und öffentliche Wiedergabe von Werken, wenn sie als unwesentliches Beiwerk neben dem eigentlichen Gegenstand der Vervielfältigung, Verbreitung oder öffentlichen Wiedergabe anzusehen sind.

Rough (linguistic, not legal) translation:

§ 57 Marginal accessories
Copying, propagation, and public rendition of works is permitted if they are to be considered insignificant to the actual object of copying, propagation, or public redition.


The central requirement for the application of § 57 UrhG follows directly from the text of the provision: the presence of an “actual object” which neither has to be protected by way of copyright (Urheberrecht) nor ancillary copyright laws (Leistungsschutzrechte).[1] Compared to this primary object, the element in question—according to the predominant opinion among courts and legal scholars alike—“(1) may not even have the slightest contextual relationship and (2) has to be without any importance for it due to its randomness and arbitrariness” (emphasis and numbering ours).[2] (A more restrictive minority view notably employed by Wilhelm Nordemann helds that the presence of the work in question has to be entirely inevitable and, on top, negligible to such a degree that it could easily be removed without even the slightest impact on the appearance of the actual object to the average viewer.[3]) This implies, in particular, that the actual object needs to be so dominant in comparison that the work in question can be replaced without altering its overall impression.[4] As soon as the work is integrated into a scene or a picture—irrespective of whether its appearance was accidental in first place or not—, § 57 UrhG can no longer apply.[5]

Whether a work constitutes a marginal accessory in this sense is determined from the perspective of an “objective observer”; it is hence irrelevant what e.g. a photographer or film maker intended to show; what matters is only the result as perceived from an objective stance.[6]

Examples: A popular example in the literature is the appearance of a painting during a movie. The example is taken from the official reasoning for § 57 UrhG where it is stated that as long as the protected painting is not the main subject of the scene, this constitutes an example of a marginal accessory. However, this notion is rejected by both case law[7] and the literature; it is held instead that oftentimes, such paintings will have an influence on the atmosphere and can thus be characteristic for the scene. In that spirit, the Munich High Court decided that the publisher of a furniture catalogue cannot invoke § 57 UrhG in order to justify that protected artwork was visible in the background to some of his pictures of interior landscapes.[8] On the other hand, it was also held by the same court that a T-shirt designer could not take steps against the publication of a magazine cover photo the subject of which was wearing a T-shirt created by the designer because it was argued that the motive on the T-shirt had no relation to the person and the topic he was supposed to illustrate.[9] (A copy of the cover can be found in the decision by the previous court, see for instance here.) Another common example from the literature is the television coverage of a speech of an MP whose copyright-protected jewelry is visible; this is considered a classical case of a marginal accessory.[10]. Gunda Dreyer points out that a photographer may not invoke to § 57 UrhG with respect to copyright-protected exhibits that appear in the background of a museum director who speaks on the inauguration festivities of his museum, while arguing that the appearance of a painting in the background of a politician speaking in the parliament is regularly covered by the exception clause due to its lacking relation to the main object.[11] A musical work can be unwesentliches Beiwerk in a documentary if it just accidentally can be heard through an open window; however, as soon as it is technically edited afterwards and thereby made part of the documentary, § 57 UrhG cannot apply anymore.[12]

IsraelEdit

An unofficial translation of the 2007 Copyright Act says:

22 Incidental Use of a Work
An incidental use of a work by way of including it in a photographic work, in a cinematographic work or in a sound recording, as well as the use of a such work in which the work was thus incidentally contained, is permitted; In this matter the deliberate inclusion of a musical work, including its accompanying lyrics, or of a sound recording embodying such musical work, in another work, shall not be deemed to be an incidental use.

JapanEdit

Copyright Act Article 30-2, amended in 2012, states:

第三十条の二 写真の撮影、録音又は録画(以下この項において「写真の撮影等」という。)の方法によつて著作物を創作するに当たつて、当該著作物(以下この条において「写真等著作物」という。)に係る写真の撮影等の対象とする事物又は音から分離することが困難であるため付随して対象となる事物又は音に係る他の著作物(当該写真等著作物における軽微な構成部分となるものに限る。以下この条において「付随対象著作物」という。)は、当該創作に伴つて複製又は翻案することができる。ただし、当該付随対象著作物の種類及び用途並びに当該複製又は翻案の態様に照らし著作権者の利益を不当に害することとなる場合は、この限りでない。

Unofficial English translation:

Article 30-2: When creating a copyrighted work of photography, sound recording or video recording, other accompanying copyrighted items that are subjects of the work because they are hard to be separated from the item that is a subject of the work may be copied or translated along the work being created (only if they are minor components of the work being created). However, if, considering the kind of the accompanying work and the manner of the copying or translation, it unfairly is prejudical to the interest of the copyright holder of the accompanying copyrighted work, they may not.

SingaporeEdit

Under section 10(1) of the Copyright Act (Cap. 63, 2006 Rev. Ed.) of Singapore, unless a contrary intention appears:

  • a reference to the doing of an act in relation to a work or other subject-matter shall be read as including a reference to the doing of that act in relation to a substantial part of the work or other subject-matter; and
  • a reference to a reproduction, adaptation or copy of a work shall be read as including a reference to a reproduction, adaptation or copy of a substantial part of the work, as the case may be.

Therefore, acts done in relation to insubstantial parts of a work or other subject-matter do not breach copyright.

United KingdomEdit

Section 31 of the UK Copyright, Designs and patents Act 1988, as subsequently amended in 2003, states that:

Copyright in a work is not infringed by its incidental inclusion in an artistic work, sound recording, film, or broadcast.

"Artistic work", as defined within the act, includes photographs.

United StatesEdit

The United States courts interpret the de minimis defence in three distinct ways:

  1. Where a technical violation is so trivial that the law will not impose legal consequences;
  2. Where the extent of copying falls below the threshold of substantial similarity (always a required element of actionable copying); and
  3. In connection with fair use (not relevant here, since Commons does not allow fair use images).

It is the first of these that is often of particular concern on Commons.

An example under Civil LawEdit

France - Freedom of Panorama "de minimis" exceptionEdit

This photograph was taken in France, but is not a copyright violation since it is of the entire plaza, and not just the Louvre Pyramid.
The white triangle in this derivative work covers the copyright protected region of the top image.

Civil Law countries may not apply the de minimis principle as set out above, but often have some alternative legal mechanism whereby similar trivial infringements can be ignored. For photographs taken in public places this may be done as part of the rules relating to Freedom of panorama. For example, French case law admits an exception if the copyrighted artwork is "accessory compared to the main represented or handled subject" (CA Paris, 27 octobre 1992, Antenne 2 c/ société Spadem, « la représentation d'une œuvre située dans un lieu public n'est licite que lorsqu'elle est accessoire par rapport au sujet principal représenté ou traité »). Thus, ruling #567 of March 15, 2005 of the Court of Cassation denied the right of producers of works of arts installed in a public plaza over photographs of the whole plaza:

Because the Court has noticed that, as it was shown in the incriminated images, the works of Mr X... and Z... blended into the architectural ensemble of the Terreaux plaza, of which it was a mere element, the appeals court correctly deduced that this presentation of the litigious work was accessory to the topic depicted, which was the representation of the plaza, so that the image did not constitute a communication of the litigious work to the public
(...)Attendu qu’ayant relevé que, telle que figurant dans les vues en cause, l’oeuvre de MM. X... et Z... se fondait dans l’ensemble architectural de la place des Terreaux dont elle constituait un simple élément, la cour d’appel en a exactement déduit qu’une telle présentation de l’oeuvre litigieuse était accessoire au sujet traité, résidant dans la représentation de la place, de sorte qu’elle ne réalisait pas la communication de cette oeuvre au public (...)

French case law states that the said artwork must not be intentionally included as an element of the setting: its presence in the picture must be unavoidable (CA Versailles, 26 janvier 1998, Sté Movie box c/ Spadem et a.):

Can be considered as an illicit representation of a statue by Maillol, the broadcasting of a commercial in which it appears, as it was not included in a film sequence shot in a natural setting—which would explain the brief, and non-essential to the main subject, appearance of the sculpture, which is set in the Tuileries gardens—but used as an element of the setting (« Constitue une représentation illicite d'une statue de Maillol la diffusion d'un film publicitaire dans laquelle elle figure, alors qu'elle a été utilisée, non pas dans une séquence tournée en décor naturel, ce qui justifierait une apparition fugace de la sculpture, placée dans le jardin des Tuileries, totalement accessoire au sujet traité, mais comme un élément du décor. »).

Crops of de minimis images デ・ミニミス画像の切り取りEdit

Since an image which is allowable under the de minimis principle must of necessity include some copyright material, it follows that such images cannot be cropped at will. 必然的にデ・ミニミス原則のもとで許容された画像は著作権のある素材を含んでいるので、その画像を思うがままに切り取りできるわけではないです。

For the case of a photograph which includes a poster, even if the photographer has a defence against infringement on the de minimis principle, that does not negate the original poster-designer's copyright. If someone takes the photograph and crops it so that only the poster remains, the de minimis defence is no longer available, as the poster design then becomes an essential part of the crop. So, the cropped version infringes and cannot be allowed on Commons. ポスターを含んだ写真の事例では、たとえ撮影者が著作権侵害の主張に対してデ・ミニミス原則を元に抗弁しても、ポスターのデザイナーの原著作権を否定するものではありません。もし誰かが、写真を撮ってポスターだけが残るように切り取ったら、デ・ミニミスの主張はもはや使えません。なぜなら、ポスターが切り取り画像の主要な部分になるからです。従って、切り取りバージョンは著作権を侵害しコモンズでは受け入れられません。

Note that the mere fact that an image allowable under de minimis may be cropped to create one which is not, does not that the original work is not de minimis after all. Even very high resolution images, in which incidental details can be reliably recovered and magnified, should be viewed as a whole from a normal viewing distance when considering whether de minimis applies.

デ・ミニミスのもとで許容された画像を切り取って別の画像を作成してもいいという単なる事実は、原著作物が結局デ・ミニミスでないということでもないし、そう示唆しているものでもないことに注意してください。たとえ高解像度の画像で、その中から付随的な対象物の詳細を確実に取り出して拡大できるような場合でも、デ・ミニミスが適用出来るかどうかを判断するときにはその写真を通常見る距離から見て全体として観察するべきです。
