to make this legal they would have to comeup with the design and prove they where the first country to build it. second i would think the person that designed it would have to apply for copyright?pyramids are not exclusive to egypt last i checked!

    The type of pyramid that stands at Giza is actually unique to Egypt.
    Regarding the copyright, maybe you are thinking of a patent.
    As Egypt would not be the first country to place a copyright on their monuments or national treasures and other significant features of its national heritage.
    The U.K. has a copyright in some if its national monuments as does France. There is also a copyright on the use of the Olympic flag and it is not held by the person who initially designed it, but by the Olympic Games Committee.

    bright idea.
    but no one has the means or the time to make a copy of the pyramids.
    even if he does , where can he build them ?

    the original blueprints are sadly in an Atlantean basement currently at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

    But seriously I hope it doesn’t go overboard with any pryamidal shapes.

    we built the pyramids while you were still jumping on trees so we have the right to copyright it
    and yes Of course Egypt was the first country to build pyramids
    It’s our right because we’re egyptians and the pyramid is egyptian enough with the whole world trying to steal our monuments and our history and our culture if you have such a monument like the pyramid or the sphinx we wont mind if you wanna copyright it too
