If you believe we should not have a picture of your building on this web site, then you are mistaken. Photographs of buildings are specifically protected by copyright laws in most countries. You cannot restrict someone from taking pictures of your building or claim a photograph violates a copyright on a building, as long as that picture was taken from a public space (such as a sidewalk, street, park, or government building). Here are the specific law:
United States Code - Title 17 - Chapter 1 - Section 120
Scope of exclusive rights in architectural works
(a) Pictorial Representations Permitted. - The copyright in an architectural work that has been constructed does not include the right to prevent the making, distributing, or public display of pictures, paintings, photographs, or other pictorial representations of the work, if the building in which the work is embodied is located in or ordinarily visible from a public place.
Contact your legal representative so he can set you straight about what is allowed and what is not.
