I have investigated the image you are concerned about. It appears to me that
the copyright on the image at
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sven_Inge.jpg> has expired. This is because
of the Upphovsrättslagen (number 1960:729), which you can read at
Briefly, photographic images (fotografiska bilder), images created before 1
*January 1969 are no longer copyrighted in Sweden. You have mentioned that the
image was published in 1968, and as such this regulation would appear to cover
If there is a reason why this regulation does not apply in this case, please
let me know so that I can investigate further.
