Good to know - “Freedom of panorama”


When it comes to the publishing of imagery depicting property in public places, it seems that the concept of freedom of panorama might not be quite as liberating as it seems - with legal restrictions differing from country to country. Here is a brief overview of what is allowed in specific countries concerning the filming and usage of images and footage of property protected by copyright.

  • • The rules in the USA, the UK, Japan, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are: if a building is filmed from a public space, any usage is permissible. But be careful: restrictions might apply for pieces of art, interiors, and constructions which are not labeled as architectural works (like bridges and dams). As you can imagine, there are also plenty of restrictions for military sites.
  • • France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Greece, and Italy do not provide any freedom of panorama. A filming permit and authorisation of use is required for just about everything. Sometimes restrictions even apply for different points of view, as we explain here:

So remember to stay informed and to plan in a little extra time for the required authorities and paperwork. Or check with us: for stock footage that’s rights cleared and ready to use.
