The Wikimedia case: copyright of public art


Maria Zamkova

In June 2014, Bildkonst Upphovsrätt i Sverige (BUS), a Swedish association that represents artists in copyright matters, filed a lawsuit against Wikimedia Sweden, based on, a webpage and database with pictures of works of art placed in public places. The database is available to the public free of charge and it is also the public that provides the database with the pictures by uploading photographs there.
