Freedom of panorama today approved by Belgian parliament

Romaine Wiki-2
Hi all,

Great news!

Freedom of panorama has been voted today in the Belgian parliament.
A mayority voted in favour of freedom of panorama, including commercial use.

Soon images of artworks and modern buildings in Belgium can be restored on Commons.

But first the law needs to be published in the Staatsblad, and ten days later it will be official, but that is just a formality. (Will keep you updated on that.)


Article in the news in Dutch:

In the past weeks, as well as since the campaign in Europe last year, we from Wikimedia Belgium have worked hard on this subject and communicated with the members of the parliament informing what this subject means for Wikipedia.

With the founding of Wikimedia Belgium in 2014, this subject was a priority for us.

Thanks all for the support!

Let's get this implemented elsewhere too!

Greetings from Belgium,
Romaine

Een kunstenaar kan zich niet langer verzetten tegen een foto of een publicatie op het internet van haar of zijn werk als het zich op het openbaar domein bevindt. De Kamer heeft een wetsvoorstel in die zin goedgekeurd.
