Report in The Guardian:

Wikimedia Sweden press release:

WMF blog post:

I would note here that in my opinion, the WMF blog post and some
journalists who seem to have read it materially misrepresent the decision
made, when they say or imply that

The Court decided that Swedish copyright law does not allow individuals or
organizations to post images online of publicly-placed artwork without
permission from the artist.
<end of quote>

Supreme Court Justice Lars Edlund has expressly contradicted that. He's
made very clear that the decision is specifically about a large-scale
online database, and does not impact users who want to post a picture to
Facebook or Instagram.
