Rights on the picture[edit]

I wonder about the legal status of the picture of the sarcophagus. In spite of the license set by the author, I think that the museum forbids taking pictures. Not that I have anything against taking pictures of off-copyright items using non-destructive techniques, but it seems that according to Italian law, they can. Would this impede the rights of Wikipedia? Is the prohibition enforceable? In Italy? In Germany? In the country of the Wikipedia servers?

(With flash? With tripod? These are among the most usual prohibitions :--Wetman 07:25, 13 September 2005 (UTC))
I was trying to shoot a bronze plate showing a war elephant and a curator told me not to do it. No tripod and he didn't ask about the flash.
