[Wiki Loves Monuments] FOP in Europe: does this include WWII monuments with art?

WMNL was recently approached for helping start a photo contest for
WWII monuments. Based on this
We assumed that these photographs could be used on Wikipedia, but the
recent discussions about the DMCA takedown notice for this
indicate that FOP in Europe is not really FOP.

To be careful, we have decided to cancel the photo contest idea,
though people are of course terribly disappointed about this.

Does anyone know the status of this discussion? Of course, WLM has
brought in several thousand of these "possibly-not-FOP" sculptures, as
they are often WLM monuments themselves, or are situated directly in
front of buildings that are WLM monuments.

Thanks in advance for any info you have - we need a short and sweet
way to inform the WWII monument committee and WMNL volunteers why we
are cancelling.
