This image is in the public domain because it is a mere mechanical scan or photocopy of a public domain original, or – from the available evidence – is so similar to such a scan or photocopy that no copyright protection can be expected to arise. The original itself is in public domain for the following reason:
Public domain This photograph from the United Arab Emirates was published prior to 1986 and is currently in the public domain due to the expiration of its term of protection, which was set at ten years from publication by Federal Law No. 40 for the Year 1992 (Art. 20). Although the 1992 law was repealed by Federal Law No. 7 for the Year 2002, the new law makes it explicitly clear (Art. 3) that it does not retroactively renew the copyright of works already in the public domain on the date of its entry into force (1 July 2002).

In order to be hosted on Commons, public domain works must be out-of-copyright in both the United States and their source country. Emirati photographs are currently in the public domain in the United States if their protection period had expired in the United Arab Emirates prior to the U.S. date of restoration (10 April 1996).

Emirati photographs published between 1986 and 1992 (i.e. those that were still copyrighted on the U.S. date of restoration but whose protection period expired before the entry into force of the new Emirati copyright law) are currently in the public domain in the United Arab Emirates but not in the United States. Although technically not allowed on Commons, such photographs are presently tolerated if the {{Not-PD-US-URAA}} tag is used in conjunction with this tag. However, they may be deleted at any time if the existing policy changes.

This tag is designed for use where there may be a need to assert that any enhancements (eg brightness, contrast, colour-matching, sharpening) are in themselves insufficiently creative to generate a new copyright. It can be used where it is unknown whether any enhancements have been made, as well as when the enhancements are clear but insufficient. For known raw unenhanced scans you can use an appropriate {{PD-old}} tag instead. For usage, see Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag.

Note: This tag applies to scans and photocopies only. For photographs of public domain originals taken from afar, {{PD-Art}} may be applicable. See Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
