Article: Night Time Eiffel Tower Photos Are a Copyright Violation

Eiffel TowerUsing the Eiffel Tower as an example, this article points out that copyright law is not the same in every country.
The famous landmark was built in 1889 which means that it falls within the public domain. However, the light show was added later and this is still protected by copyright.
The article notes other countries where photographing architecture could be an issue.

By the way, there are a number of photos on the Internet of the Eiffel Tower at night, so I wonder how this is enforced?
