Copyright issues, promotion
Content from the official site is now licensed for use in this article. That means material can be taken from the about page and others to improve this article. However, please note that this allowance is not a requirement that the content of these sites be permitted and that the material published here must otherwise conform to our site's policies and guidelines. Content such as this does not: "Sculpture by the Sea returns to Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Western Australia. Over 70 local, interstate and international artists will transform Perth's most popular beach into a stunning sculpture park overlooking the Indian Ocean with some of the most glorious sunsets of any major city in the world."
Our content must be strictly written from a neutral point of view, and any critical commentary (positive or otherwise) must be cited to reliable sources that are not connected to the subject. While of course we understand that the organizers of the sculpture by the sea contest will regard the the sculpture park as "stunning", we cannot use such language here. Nor can we use some of the other laudatory language formerly displayed in this article, such as "hugely popular", and we cannot cite statistics to prove that popularity unless they are verified by a disconnected source.
Due to difficulties in producing content that conforms to our policies, Wikipedia does not encourage editors who are involved personally with subjects to edit about them in most circumstances. Please see our conflict of interest guidelines for recommended practices. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 15:12, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Freedom of Panorama does not apply
Note to future editors wanting to take photographs:
The Commons:Freedom of Panorama provisions of Australian copyright law do NOT apply to images from Sculpture by the Sea. Section 65 of the Australia copyright act specifically exempts TEMPORARY sculpture in a public place from being photographed without infringement. It is NOT legal for a passerby to license their own photo of a temporary sculpture in Australia under Creative Commons. Therefore, only images of the sculptures under Fair Use, or those legally obtained from the Sculpture by the Sea organisation, or the sculptor themselves, would be acceptable on the English Wikipedia.
