Wow, I am impressed by the Italian institutions supporting Wiki Loves Monuments! That is terrific, but I wonder if they really understand all of the Italian copyright issues on national heritage in Italy and whether they are legally able to contribute those CC share-alike photos? I would hate for this to turn into some kind of ugly legal battle after the fact. Jane023 (talk) 07:09, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Jane, too bad you did not receive an answer earlier. However AFAIK these institutions do get a legal counsel before signing agreements regarding WLM or other GLAM partnerships, it's in their own interest being informed and aware of what they are doing. It's not just one person from the inside that decides and sends a consent email :) --151.42.20.79 13:47, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
