Freedom of Panorama: Digital Sharing of Cultural Heritage in the European Public Space

Pierre-Carl Langlais, Mélanie Dulong de Rosnay
IAMCR, 29 juillet 2017, Leicester

 Freedom of panorama is the legal right to publish pictures of artworks, sculptures, paintings, buildings or monuments which are on the public space in some countries (US, UK, Brazil, Germany). However, in other countries (France, Argentina, Belgium, Italy, Greece), this public space is “holed”: some publicly placed artefacts can claim copyright, and, by their position, effectively hide otherwise unprotected landscape. The article aims at assessing the actual impact of freedom of panorama on the remuneration generated for authors of works permanently located in the public space by comparing data from countries which have a freedom of panorama, with revenues in countries which do not have such a right. Both this quantitative analysis and a qualitative observation of the discourse on Freedom of panorama in the public space will contribute to the policy debate.A
