Relevant discussion is at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Requests_for_comment/non-US_Freedom_of_Panorama_under_US_copyright_law

AFAIK, policy in Commons is use choice of law of FOP in country of origin but with a warning for reusers that it may not be free in the US: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Not-free-US-FOP

> Hello,
> WMNL was recently approached for helping start a photo contest for
> WWII monuments. Based on this
> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Freedom_of_Panorama_in_Europe_NC.svg
> We assumed that these photographs could be used on Wikipedia, but the
> recent discussions about the DMCA takedown notice for this
> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Houseball_(Oldenburg_and_van_Bruggen)
> 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.
> Jane
