In France there's noFOP and we've got some protected buildings that are
still under copyright (as far as I know we don't know the exact number), we
have started to use a special picture for them in the lists on wikipedia :
that the building is copyrighted.

We also communicated about this topic with a blog post during the last
competition :
http://blog.wikimedia.fr/wiki-loves-monuments-et-le-droit-dauteur-3649 (in
french, sorry). Our main problem was that the records describing buildings
aren't always accurate and/or the architects aren't famous so for many 20th
century buildings we don't really know if they are free or not.
