Carolyn Porter | Interesting Copyright Issue / Eiffel Tower
Did you know it's illegal to post night-time photos of the Eiffel Tower? It's true. It has to do with the copyright of the light show.

Interesting Copyright Issue

eiffel-tower-night-mini

Here’s an interesting legal issue. I just learned it’s illegal to take and show photos of the Eiffel Tower at night (yes, like the image above, which I snapped in 2012). Why? Photos taken during the day aren’t an issue; the tower is considered to be in the public domain. However, the design of the tower’s light show is protected by copyright. Read the details here.

As they say at the end of the article, good luck enforcing that.
