The much hyped wonder of the world and its images are in public domain since 1993. However, its illumination is considered an artwork on its own, and is protected by copyright, making it illegal to post pictures of the lit Eiffel Tower.

Hence, posting an incomplete, unlit picture of the tower, in which I look like a con artist trying to sell Eiffel tower for scrap metal. (Not a joke, this happened twice. Read the wikipedia article about Victor Lustig for more info) .
