Please read before continuing: Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag and the clear position of the Wikimedia Foundation which you can find there: To put it plainly, WMF's position has always been that faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain. If museums and galleries not only claim copyright on reproductions, but also control the access to the ability to reproduce pictures (by prohibiting photos, etc.), important historical works that are legally in the public domain can be made inaccessible to the public except through gatekeepers. WMF has made it clear that in the absence of even a strong legal complaint, we don't think it's a good idea to dignify such claims of copyright on public domain works. And, if we ever were seriously legally challenged, we would have a good internal debate about whether we'd fight such a case, and build publicity around it. This is neither a policy change (at least from WMF's point of view), nor is it a change that has implications for other Commons policies. So, PLEASE stop your deletion requests. If you need a German translation, I will be happy to provide one. --Concord (talk) 14:24, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
Oder nochmal im Klartext: das angebliche Urheberrecht besteht nicht (weder nach US-Recht noch nach deutschen Recht nach herrschender Meinung), die Vorwürfe sind verleumderisch, die Bemühung des Urheberrechts ist missbräuchlich (w:de:Schutzrechtsberühmung, bekannt als "Copyfraud"). --FA2010 (talk) 12:34, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
