In a potential blow to themed resorts from Vegas to Tokyo, Egypt is to pass a law requiring payment of royalties whenever its ancient monuments, from the pyramids to the sphinx, are reproduced.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

I wonder if this passes how far it will go???

No big deal. Even if they get a copyright with a period of 500 years, it still expired 4000 years ago.

It is clear that they can't copyright a geometric shape:

§ 1302. Designs not subject to protection3

Protection under this chapter shall not be available for a design that is —

(1) not original;

(2) staple or commonplace, such as a standard geometric figure, a familiar symbol, an emblem, or a motif, or another shape, pattern, or configuration which has become standard, common, prevalent, or ordinary;

What about the familiar symbol part? The pyramids are a symbol of Egypt... I think they've said that themselves
