The issue of whether there is new copyright created when a two-dimensional PD work is scanned or photographed is one that is definitely one of the biggest bones of contention between the Wikimedia community and the GLAM sector, not just in Australia but worldwide. Even with the Bridgeman v Corel

Another thing is the use of the geo-ip notice. There is no codified policy about how/when it should be deployed, but if there's an event (e.g. Wikipedia day celebratory dinner) then that should be reason enough to justify the use in the Perth IP ranges. We used it in Sydney to announce the
