Hi. I am not sure if I understand your point. The current version of 
the Freedom of Panorama page on Commons explains that US law does not 
allow works of public art to be pictorially reproduced without author's 
permission, the point I made. 

If the Commons really allows such an image, it must be based on 
fair use I imagine. I thought Commons does not allow fair use image, though. 
Or am I missing something?
