Low resolution?

Other information

This image is considered to be public domain in Switzerland per Blau Guggenheim v. British Broadcasting Corporation, which asserted that the image is not creative enough.

However, it is presumed to be copyrighted in the United States, as such a distinction for "simple" photographs does not exist in U.S. copyright law (which applies to Wikipedia or its affiliates), it is unclear whether it is below the U.S. threshold of originality, and this case law only applies to Switzerland. This image was previously hosted on Wikimedia Commons under the presumption that its lack of copyright applied worldwide.
