It's almost 9 p.m. and my thermometers can't decide whether it's 30° or 34° celsius... :(
Edit: if you have any questions, there will probably be a journal about this matter by CRPhotography or depthRadius, as daguerreoty-pe answered my question whether they could do so to reach as many artists concerned as possible. They will certainly be more informed about that matter than I am!

Attention to European (street) artists: the EU are currently attempting a legal change of "freedom of panorama". Never heard of it? Neither did I.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_…

So that's what I already found out (which is not much):
It means the right to create photos and other art containing buildings, statues etc "permanently located in a public place" and destribute it without commiting copyright infringement.

Example? Here is one: So you get on a trip to Paris, visit the Louvre, take a picture of yourself in front of the pyramid, upload it to share your little holiday experience "I was there!". That may get you some serious problem. It was completed in 1989 and the architect I.M Pei is still alive, so the pyramid is copyrighted... oops!
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louvre_P…

So far, European countries differed in their opinions. Now the EU want to have one rule for all and that means: (guess what?) LESS rights to do so. And this includes uploading such pictures on Facebook, Wikimedia and other (commercial) platforms. Also people with their own little homepage containing such pictures may get legal problems.
