Images of the Atomium[edit]

Please do not upload images of the Atomium as they were deleted before. Belgium does not have Freedom of Panorama and we cannot host files in this manner per Wikipedia:Non-free content. Also your claim of copyfraud is incorrect as Belgium law is binding in the United States in accordance with the Berne Convention as well as Uruguay Round Agreements Act. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 12:21, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

A official summary of the Berne Convention can be found here
Note particularly:
(a) Works originating in one of the Contracting States (that is, works the author of which is a national of such a State or works first published in such a State) must be given the same protection in each of the other Contracting States as the latter grants to the works of its own nationals (principle of "national treatment") [1].
The means that the copyright of a 2 dimensional work of an artist in Belgium would be honoured in the US because US law provides for copyright of 2 dimensional works. However, unlike Belgian law, US law does not grant rights over photographs of a building to its architect, so the Berne Convention does not confer any additional rights in this case. 9carney (talk) 18:37, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately, the 3D work itself is copyrighted therefore taking a photo of it is problematic to begin with. Can you link me a single case law example where US FOP applies to a country without FOP? As far as Wikipedia is concerned it is fully copyrighted. As such it will be deleted no matter how many times you upload it. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 19:08, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Taking a photo of it is not problematic. The copyright law in Belgium does not restrict taking photos, it only governs their later use. There can be no case law regarding the building image in the US because the copyright doesn't apply there. In contrast to Commons, Wikipedia policy allows fair use of fully copyrighted works from any country. 9carney (talk) 19:29, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
I am sorry but your assessment is simply incorrect. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 20:01, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Atomium 320 by 240 CCBY20 flickr Mike Cattell v2.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Atomium 320 by 240 CCBY20 flickr Mike Cattell.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Atomium 320 by 240 CCBY20 flickr Mike Cattell.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Safiel (talk) 20:14, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
