Wikimedia claims Swedish court decision means tourists who take selfies at famous landmarks and spread them online could be in violation of law

Poorly written article because it ends with the following statement:

BUS meanwhile recalled that Wikimedia had refused to sign a licensing agreement that “would have cost several thousand kronor per year” (several hundred euros/dollars) and had instead “chosen to spend hundreds of thousands of kronor on lawyers’ fees.”

Which is bullshit, because if Wikimedia had paid that low fee, they would be setting a precedent for all other countries to follow suit.
