This series of photos of Estonian authors may be old, but age is not used as the justification for having these photos. The template lists a long list of exemptions to Estonian copyright, but none seem to apply. In the statute linked from the template Section 4 (2) 17) makes specific mention that photographic works are protected. Eclecticology

commons:Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:PD-EE-exempt doesnt show anything like these photos, so the tag is definitely being used incorrectly. I have speedied about half of these photos. Many of these subjects are old; which makes the images likely to be old too. Here is the three left to figure out:
- Image:Carl-robert-jakobson.jpg comes from w:Image:Carl-robert-jakobson.jpg, but that image doesnt give sufficient information for me to want to move it to Commons.
- Image:Tammsaare.jpg doesnt look PD, and doesnt exist on the Wikipedia article.
- Image:Karl Parts.jpg looks PD.
- Image:Hannes Walter.jpg ((1952–2004) is almost certainly not PD.
