I'm invited to a hearing by a governmental commission who works on possible
alterations to the laws and regulations governing the copyright on public works
in France. They want to know my opinions (and those of Wikimedia France) on the
I know about the copyright-free status of the works of the US federal
government. I'm interested in the copyright status of the works of other
governments worlwide, especially in the European Union.
Please answer by private e-mail.
