Hi all,

Great news!

Freedom of panorama has been voted today in the Belgian parliament.
A mayority voted in favour of freedom of panorama, including commercial use.

Soon images of artworks and modern buildings in Belgium can be restored on
Commons.

But first the law needs to be published in the Staatsblad, and ten days
later it will be official, but that is just a formality. (Will keep you
updated on that.)

In the past weeks, as well as since the campaign in Europe last year, we
from Wikimedia Belgium have worked hard on this subject and communicated
with the members of the parliament informing what this subject means for
Wikipedia.

With the founding of Wikimedia Belgium in 2014, this subject was a priority
for us.

Thanks all for the support!

Greetings from Belgium,
Romaine
