United Kingdom

The photographic reproduction of this work is covered under United Kingdom law ( Section 62 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988), which states that it is not an infringement to take photographs of buildings, or of sculptures, models for buildings, or works of artistic craftsmanship permanently located in a public place or in premises open to the public. This does not apply to two-dimensional works such as posters or other flat artworks. See Commons:Freedom of panorama#United Kingdom for more information.

Possibly copyrighted in the U.S. This work may not be available under a free license in the United States because it is based on an artwork or sculpture that may be protected by copyright under U.S. law.
  • In the source country of the artwork or sculpture, taking photographs of such works permanently located in a public place does not generally infringe on their copyright, under a principle known as " freedom of panorama".
  • In U.S. law there is no freedom of panorama for artwork or sculpture, and under the choice-of-law principle lex loci protectionis U.S. courts might apply U.S. freedom-of-panorama standards to this work, rather than the standards of the source country. However, in practice it is unsettled whether and how this approach would be applied in real world U.S. legal cases involving freedom-of-panorama elements.

This is not a valid license on Commons; this file must be usable under freedom of panorama in its source country or it will be deleted. Files bearing this tag may be deleted in the future, depending on the outcome of community discussions and new case law. If you are the copyright holder of the depicted artwork and do not wish to have it hosted on Commons, please contact our designated agent.
