I love the way we Wiki*edians can get into such esoteric debates! There is not many places where on the one mailiing list you'll be discussing the finer points of photographic publication rights and the next day you'll be discussing the best way to write an article about a horserace.
That said, is it just me or is this particular thread making a mountain out of a molehill? On a strict reading of the rules I suppose that would mean we would have to delete every photo of Uluru? But really - is that likely? When this point was raised, was this more as a hypothetical or was there a genuine problem that we envisaged coming afoul of? -Liam On 11/13/08, Gnangarra <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > The big risk would be to those resident in Australia. > > Lets take Uluru because I've been down that burrow there is much discussion > on en about > this.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Uluru#Photo_of_.22banned.22_zone > > Basically assuming one can afford the cost of the permit its time limited > and use restricted a photographer cant go in and take speculative > photographs the purpose of the photo needs to be defined and then its use is > restricted to that purpose for a time period 1-5 years from date taken. > After the period the expires to republish the photographer needs to reapply > for the permit. > > Vague memory of an advertising campaign that use an Image of Uluru with > rubbish in front it of was stopped because the permit didnt allow for the > represent.
