It’s a good thing

Not sure how Wikimedia can claim the public would be prosecuted for selfies when the article states the court specifically said “were permitted to photograph artwork on display in public spaces” without fear of breaking the law. Selfie away!

Sweden’s highest court on Monday found Wikimedia Sweden guilty of violating copyright laws by providing free access to its database of artwork photographs without the artists’ consent.

Wikimedia, part of the not-for-profit foundation which oversees Wikipedia among other online resources, has a database of royalty-free photographs that can be used by the public, for educational purposes or the tourism industry.
