Blues Trail markersEdit

Hi there. I noticed this deletion discussion. Where is the rule about these markers? I'm not sure how they fall under the umbrella of public art. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 03:18, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for asking. Freedom of panorama is a rule that liberalizes copyright laws in certain situations. By default, "Authors of literary and artistic works protected by this Convention shall have the exclusive right of authorizing the reproduction of these works, in any manner or form." See Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Legal_status_of_pictures. Reproducing copyrighted text in the form of an image is prohibited by default here, even if it is located in public. In the United States, an exception is made for buildings only. See Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#United_States. This exception does not apply to art or text in public places.

I've read the policy many times but never thought about how it would impact on photos of public text. That's a lot of images, but the law is the law. Thanks for the info. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 16:21, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
