Hi Andreas,

This blog post was corrected earlier this morning PST:

https://blog.wikimedia.org/2016/04/04/strike-against-freedom-panorama/

The sentence you mentioned now reads:

The Court decided that Swedish copyright law does not allow Wikimedia
Sverige to post images in its online database offentligkonst.se (a website
/ database covering publicly placed art) without permission from the
artist.

There are also correction notes at the top and end of the post, and we’ve
updated our social media posts from the @Wikipedia Facebook and Twitter
accounts to acknowledge and reflect this correction.

Thank you,

Sam
