"Freedom of Panorama" introduced in Belgian IPR Law

"Freedom of Panorama" introduced in Belgian IPR Law

A new exception to Belgian copyright legislation has been enacted. Until recently, it was technically possible for rights holders of a copyrighted work displayed publically in Belgium to ban reproductions of that work, or communications of that work to the public.

Under the new exception, known as the ‘freedom of panorama’, this comes to an end, ensuring that you can now freely post your most beautiful snapshots of the Brussels Atomium or the Antwerp MAS museum and share them publicly, at least under certain conditions.
