None of the
discussions of the Qimron case seem to mention the issue of date of
publication. The argument seems to have hinged almost entirely on the
issue of originality.
The Qimron case is completely irrelevant with regard to the copyright
of the images. It is a case about the *text*.
If WMF wants to copy *the text* of the scrolls, I don't think anyone
is going to have a problem with that. The copyright notice claims
copyright "in the digital images of the manuscripts", not in the text.
