Where is the evidence that the copyright holder has released this into the public domain? John Vandenberg (chat) 14:49, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

This document is an international treaty, a text by definition meant to be released into the public domain. In actual fact one could argue that there is no copyright holder to the text as such (there could be if the text was published in an annotated commercial edition, which is then copied, but that is not the case. We are here concerned with the raw text of the treaty as made available on internet inter alia by the Norwegian and Autralian governments. Check with other treaties in wikisource.

I rechecked copyright reulations and this article does not need a banner at all: document prepared outside the US in compliance with US formalities and published between 1 July 1909–1922 do not need a banner. I have removed it.Michel Doortmont 09:11, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Request Move to Spitsbergen Treaty[edit]

I request that the title be immediately changed to Spitsbergen Treaty, as there is no such thing as the Svalbard Treaty, seeing as how no treaty with that name exists. Seeing as how there is no move page, how would this be accomplished? Corfits Ulfeldt (talk) 22:07, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

source please. Rettetast (talk) 13:46, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Evidence at Wikipedia would be that the the former name is correct, and would align with the title that we have in header. A redirect exists from the alternative name. — billinghurst sDrewth 18:29, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
