File:BeverlyLynne2.jpgEdit

The file BeverlyLynne2.jpg which was uploaded by me together with some other pictures of the same person was deleted. The reason given is "No OTRS permission". I submitted 6 files in total, listed in Category:Beverly Lynne. I received all 6 files from Beverly Lynne herself with a permission for Commons. The OTRS permission was put into the description of the other 5 files, but not for this one. I replied to the mail from OTRS but got no response since 24.9.2012. Please undelete the file and add the corresponding OTRS-permission. --Konsequenz (talk) 12:54, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Station Nouveau Bassin Tramway Mulhouse.jpgEdit

Hello,

I would like some review about this deletion on one of my own files named File:Station Nouveau Bassin Tramway Mulhouse.jpg because I think, in my humble opinion, that we can consider it as a "De Minimis" case. Indeed, as I said in the DR, the "sculpture" or "artwork" is not the main subject nor the purpose of the photograph. The main subject of the picture is a tram station (with standard platforms) and the tram vehicules (an Alstom Citadis tram in the center of the picture, and another one in the background). The part of the station that can be copyrighted, are the two Buren arches above the station. I think they are De Minimis, because one arch is in the background, and the foreground arch is partially cropped, the picture was not intended to be especially framed for capturing the Buren arches. And anyway, if the presence of these arches are problematic, this is very easy to crop the picture in order to avoid these arches, and just keeping the tram vehicules and the "standard" part of the station which is below any threshold of originality (blank or grey platforms, standard tracks and just some grass in the middle). I point to the fact that it's very difficult to depict a Mulhouse tram station without the "risk" of capturing some Buren's arches. Then with all these elements, could it be possible to undelete the picture? And if not, is it possible to temporary undelete it in order to keep the description page and upload a cropped version of the picture (I can let someone else crop it in order to be impartial), then hide the first version of the picture. Thank you very much for your help. Jeriby (talk) 16:40, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

  • I have temporarily undeleted it for discussion. I would Symbol support vote.svg Support this undeletion being permanent. In my opinion the main subject is the train, and so the arches are COM:DM. -- King of ♠ 09:02, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm the Admin who deleted these, so I have a bias of sorts. I would be happy to see this image cropped to eliminate the closer arch -- I would then agree that the arch farther away was de minimis. The argument
"I point to the fact that it's very difficult to depict a Mulhouse tram station without the "risk" of capturing some Buren's arches."
is not valid -- there are many things that are difficult or impossible to photograph because the image would infringe on a copyright. That is too bad, but it does not mean that we can ignore the copyright. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:01, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi, thank you very much to King of Hearts for this temporary undeletion, I'll wait then for everyone's opinions to know what to do about the picture. Thanks also to Jameslwoodward for your answer. Of course when I talked about the fact that it's difficult to take a pic of the tram station without capturing the arches, I didn't mean that it could be a reason to ignore FOP problems, I just meant this was really not intentional, when I took the picture, that the arches appear. If I had to take the picture again I'd frame diffently of course Smile if I go there again in the future, I'll try to take new pictures to feed the tram category in a better way. But I really hope something can be saved anyway on this file. Thanks again! Jeriby (talk) 20:29, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
I thought the arch detracted from the the attractiveness of the tram station, so had it demolished and re took the photograph. Sorry for overwriting the original, feel free to revert it ;-) --Tony Wills (talk) 23:11, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Please explain why a picture that I took have been deleted without even asking me any questions????????--Towpilot (talk) 18:37, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

This, in fact, has been explained to you. Multiple times, judging from your user talk page. As you should know by now, this is a volunteer project, and we have millions of files and thousands of users. No one volunteer can be familiar with everyone's work, but we all try to do our part to keep copyright violations out of the database.
Unfortunately, lots of people upload copyrighted publicity stills of celebrities because they see a page on Wikipedia with no picture and think "Oh, I can just upload this image I found on Google". As you know, we only accept freely licensed photos, like yours. But it can be very hard to tell the difference.
Obviously, you've had this problem before. May I suggest that you take the time to send a message to our "Open Ticket Request System", explicitly claiming ownership over the photos you've uploaded? Having an OTRS ticket number on each of your uploads will go a long way toward avoiding future deletion requests from well-meaning individuals unfamiliar with your work.

File:bone chair.jpg Edit

The source, http://www.flickr.com/photos/lorimer-gilman_truss/8196736140/, is clearly marked as 'attribution' under creative commons share alike —Preceding unsigned comment added by Melissa Bennett (talk • contribs) 2012-12-05T16:07:04 (UTC)

On Flickr, it says that it is a drawing of a chair by Joris Laarman. I don't know where the chair comes from, but the name of the chair designer sounds Dutch, and the page Utilitarian objects protected by copyright suggests that utilitarian objects may be protected by copyright in the Netherlands, so maybe the problem is that the drawing is a derivative work of a copyrighted chair? --Stefan4 (talk) 17:33, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
However, the source country of the object depicted is not important to us; all we care about is whatever country the Flickr user is from. For example, File:Aboriginal Flag.JPG is OK because the country of origin is Israel, not Australia. -- King of ♠ 18:02, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose KoH is correct, but that issue may be moot. While as a general rule, utilitarian objects do not have a copyright in most countries, this is a really "arty" chair -- I think that it would have a copyright in the USA and most other countries. If that is correct, then the drawing of it is a DW of the chair. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:22, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

File:ARB 4 Documents for ISNs 115 through 256.pdfEdit

This file has been changed to a redirect. I suspect the events were:

  1. Human error on the part of a busy uploader (me), resulted in the same file, being uploaded a second time, under a different (incorrect) name.
  2. An administrator deleted this image, even though it was the original, and then replaced it with a redirect to the incorrectly named actual duplicate.
  3. I've corrected the second file, so it corresponds with the source field and the rest of that second file's {{Information}} template.
  4. I tried to re-upload this image, but the presence of the redirect prevents that.

File:BAL Penn station.pngEdit

Would you please restore File:BAL Penn station.png? It was taken down in error. The subject is the Baltimore Penn Station. It is a panoramic view of the building. The inclusion of the statue is incidental and de minimis. The image would essentially look quite similar if the statue was removed. I refer you to:

The building is a historical landmark and the photo should be preserved. Currently, the photo is at w:File:BAL Penn station.png, but it belongs on the commons. It would be impossible to have any panoramic pictures of the building that didn't include the sculpture. Look at: File:Baltimore Pennsylvania Station corrected.jpg.

If you disagree, as does User:Jameslwoodward [1], I ask that you restore the image and tag for deletion it so it goes through a full discussion here: Category:United States FOP cases/pending. The image existed for a number of years with no problems. I think this falls under copyright paranoia. It deserves to have a full discussion and not simply the summary judgement of one or two editors. Thanks. Evrik (talk) 22:45, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The uploader on en.wiki, DMacks, agreed that the photo should be fair use. In any event, since we can link to the fair-use version (w:File:BAL Penn station.png) to discuss the image, I don't see any point in restoring the version here unless consensus is to do so. INeverCry 23:11, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Assuming that the image on Wikipedia is the same image, this looks very similar to the Louvre pyramid example at COM:DM#France - Freedom of Panorama "de minimis" exception. It looks as if it would be very difficult to take a photo of the entire building without taking a photo of the sculpture. Of course, USA law might define de minimis in a different way than French law. It would be nice to have some examples of national variations of de minimis. --Stefan4 (talk) 23:24, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
I have never understood the Louvre pyramid decision, but it is not terribly relevant to a USA case. Our de minimis rules are different. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 00:26, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is impossible to take a photo of the entire building without taking a photo of the sculpture. Evrik (talk) 16:30, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose My comment at the first UnDR was:
"It's not de minimis -- the sculpture is dead center and obscures the facade of the building. A photographer who wanted a picture of the facade would have moved to the other side of the sculpture."
I don't see any reason why this needs further discussion. The original uploader and three Admins participated in the previous UnDR. While the building is on the NRHP, this photograph is not vital to its presentation anywhere. We have an excellent exterior photograph and it is certainly possible to photograph the building without the sculpture -- as I said in my comment above, it would just require the photographer to stand on the other side of the sculpture. It could probably best be done with three or four images taken from different locations and stitched, but that is trivial these days..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 00:26, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
"three or four images taken from different locations and stitched", that technique I haven't seen on Wikimedia (ok, I haven't looked ;-). I think to stitch images that are not all taken from the same location you would have to take lots of images with a very narrow field of view or you will end up with strange artifacts, not sure what software package handles that type of panorama, I suppose Google and NASA do that stuff all the time (I would appreciate any pointers :-). --Tony Wills (talk) 05:16, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment File:Baltimore Pennsylvania Station corrected.jpg is not the entire front of the building. I am asking that this be restored because it was summarily taken down. I am the original uploader and was never given the chance to participate in the discussion to remove it. Mainly because there was no discussion. Evrik (talk) 16:30, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I stand by per my previous response at the firt UnDR: "I agree with Jameslwoodward. The sculpture is not actually part of the building itself, but is in a plaza in front, so there are multiple ways to get the building without having the non-free component as prominent (or even visible at all)."

The photo was granted to me by the owner and publisher of Planodion magazine on whose behalf I have written this article. I found it on a website of the Hellenic American Union, which took it from the publisher himself.

There are NO copyright issues and I expect it to be undeleted and posted again as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot for the prompt undoing of this mistake you made!

Kind regards,

Dr. Vassilis Manoussakis


P.S. I wish there was an easier way to communicate with Wikipedia staff. It would save you thousands of hours if you didn't delete what needs not be deleted! And I am not only saying that because of the above mistake but because of a perfectly normal article which has been deleted and although I sent two explanations I never received an answer.

Hi, in regard to File:Sv Martina Bled.jpg that has been deleted per Commons:Deletion requests/Art by Slavko Pengov: I can't see it right now, but if the frescoes are de minimis and the image primarily shows the architecture of the church, it should be undeleted, because its architect has died before 1945 and it is thus in the public domain in Slovenia.

I believe User:Richiex had did nothing wrong and personally, I think Richiex had did a GREAT job contributing to the Wikimedia repository.

Category:Bazilika Lurške Matere Božje, BrestanicaEdit

I think that the following three images depicting the interior of the church don't focus on specific interior equipment (sculptures, frescoes), which can thus be considered de minimis:

The architecture is work by Hans Pascher (1858-1942) and as such in the public domain in Slovenia (the source country).

Additionally, the following image should be undeleted:

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Divača train stationEdit

I've had a second look at this deletion request, because I couldn't find again the source for the statement that the railway station was built in the 1960s. I've found out that in 2007 a user has added the sourced (in the edit summary) information to the Slovene Wikipedia that the station was actually built in 1857 (although the source page is no longer available).[2] This certainly makes sense because the accompanying objects were built at the same time and the station is also depicted on postcards from the early 20th century.[3][4] Therefore, I apologise and ask for the undeletion of these files. --Eleassar (t/p) 12:31, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

The problem is that while the media is given out freely, it is in the sense of you can use it without any payment.

La imagen de loguisimo , de donde yo lo saque no hay en ningun lugar donde diga en la página que tiene los derechos del autor --Guino126 (talk) 12:04, 18 December 2012 (UTC)Guino126

Eu fotografei a minha cidade chamada Pedra Azul no estado de Minas Gerais, Brasil e com muita satisfação cedi meus direitos autorais ao Wikipédia para que se dispusesse dele como bem entendesse e tal foi minha indignação com a comunidade Wikipédia quando vi que minhas próprias obras tinham sido excluídas como se eu estivesse usurpando o direito de alguém. Ainda possuo as originais comigo bem como muitas outras. A não ser que eu tenha cometido algum erro muito grande na política de autoria do Wikipédia, a qual desconheço no momento, e que gostaria que me explicassem, pretendo deixar esta rede porque estou percebendo que nem todos são responsáveis na hora de fazer alterações nas publicações de outros usuários. O ficheiro segue logo abaixo. Espero que me entendam. Tem outro também de minha autoria, mas esperarei primeiro a resposta deste para balizar meus atos com o outro, seja fazendo o mesmo pedido, seja largando de mão. Obrigado e desculpem a importunação de minha parte. File:Centro Histórico de Pedra Azul - MG, Igrejinha do Santuário tombado como patrimônio histórico.JPG

File:'No Joke' Poster Official.jpgEdit

It is quite distressing to have a poster which I created myself flagged for copyright violation. All images used in the poster are owned and created by me. There is absolutely no reason at all to flag this as a violation of copyright especially when it is made perfectly clear in the upload details that it is a work of my own creation using material of my own creation. There is something fundamentally wrong with individuals having the right to blindly flag images that are so CLEARLY within the boundaries of the rules. I implore Wikipedia to either alter the rules of this indiscriminate flagging policy and/or to immediately ban any individual who has done such, including the user who flagged my image. Disgraceful.

A Sunflower's Dream (How, once again, Wikimedia Commons was wrong)Edit

File:A Sunflower's Dream Movie Poster.jpg

Truth is, I designed that poster exclusively by myself. It's from a movie that didn't even reach preproduction proccess and, therefore, claimed no copyright. I made the image using Adobe Photoshop and uploaded it to Wikimedia Commons so a friend of mine could use it in the homonime name article (which was deleted). Furthermore, i'm not violating any copyright or possession law, since it's my work, as I specified during the file upload. Every single image that appears at the poster are copyright free (there is only one image). Hence I would like you to think twice about deleting an image or any other file, since I'm sure this hasn't been the first time you have deleted something on purpose but being completely wrong. I think it's crystal clear that nobody inquired in this image, for you didn't give any reason to procede to delete it. You just communicated to me that it might violate copyright laws. To sum up, you just deleted an image with NO COPYRIGHT AT ALL basing your deletion in UNJUSTIFIABLE REASONS.

Thanks for your understanding, and forgive my level of English.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Of course it has a copyright -- almost everything has a copyright until its expiration -- the exceptions fall into very specific groups and this isn't one of them. As far as the deletion goes -- either this is a movie poster for a real movie, in which case it is clearly a copyvio, or, as described above, it is someone's personal art work for a movie that never happened, in which case it is out of scope. In either case the deletion was correct. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:28, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Dragan Kojic Keba.jpg Edit

I do not understand why the file is deleted. One of the reasons is that I'm not an OTRS member, which is true. However, I used to upload files from the same source before, and there were no problems, and those file have the same OTRS ticket as all files from this category. -- Pavlica talk 22:09, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Since you are not an OTRS volunteer, you should not be adding {{OTRS permission}} to files, even if you believe it is correct. Please do not do it again.
It is true that there appear to be a great many files with that ticket number -- however, it is not a valid OTRS ticket -- OTRS tickets all begin with the date, followed by nine digits, so "20121221XXXXXXXXX" would be the form of a ticket issued today.
The only ticket I could find from Medija Centar Beograd is #2012011710005331, which covers only the file attached to that e-mail. However, I don't read Serbian, and the OTRS search facility is not particularly helpful, so there may be others.
I suggest you see if you can find a valid OTRS ticket number among the files you think are covered by one and bring it here for checking..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:43, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

No, this is not a copyright violation. It is a completely self-drawn image, and the book was used as its source, which is just necessary to draw such a map.--Antemister (talk) 20:00, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Frankly, I'm not certain I believe that. This is a very sophisticated map, with beautiful relief shading and two-line roads that would be very hard to draw by hand. It would take weeks of work to draw this from a blank sheet of paper, and I can't imagine anyone doing that when freely licensed base maps are readily available.
Therefore, I must ask, exactly what do you mean by "the book was used as its source"? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:14, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes, this is a sophisticated map, but really, it is self-drawn, I cooperated with the user (currently not active here) in creating it. Any such military map does need source for the frontlines and areas of control, and it is not a copyvio if you use this information.--Antemister (talk) 22:32, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Please retain good faith. I'd refer COM:PRP in case of reasonable doubt, e.g. when the same image can be found elsewhere with different attribution, and not when uploader just didn't provide more data (higher resolution + EXIF) than asked. Original uploader is trusted user (administrator) on Estonian Wikipedia and has explicitly stated in the logs that the the work is by oneself (ise tehtud pilt). I don't find it's needed to explain low quality, but in this case it's likely related to the fact that initially (before agreeing with free license) author wasn't willing to release this image fully freely per deleted talk page. If there was EXIF data, this was likely lost with resizing. Also, in February 2005 Wikimedia Commons was at its early state without current wide variety of high quality images and it was probably considered worthwhile to upload low quality images too just for the sake of having at least some illustrations.

INC, I don't see an "iffy copyright status" here. There is no evidence that this is other than what Pikne says it is, a low resolution upload from an Admin on WP:ET who is vouched for by another Admin there. Given that WP:ET has only 37 Admins, I suspect they know each other fairly well.

I don't understand. Copyright is what AGF is all about. If an uploader, any uploader, not an Admin or other trusted person, uploads an image and claims that it is his own work, we Assume Good Faith unless there is a significant doubt about the status of the image. That's what we have here. It's true that we tend not to AGF when a newbie uploads a small image, but even then, if the newbie comes back and says that it is his own work, we'll keep it. If we didn't do that we would have far fewer images. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:27, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Bryggen i Bergen (Legoland).jpgEdit

There is FOP in Denmark for buildings but not for statues etc. This is a building build with lego. So the question is now is it a building or some sort of work of art?

I was told somewhere that a model is not creative enough to be protected by copyright because the person who made it did nothing creative. He/she just spend a lot of hours to make a copy of something that someone else made. However I could not find the discussion.

There was not real discussion in the DR just a "No FOP for sculptures" and a "Deleted".

In this case I think we could keep the photo. There is FOP in Denmark where the lego building is placed and it is a model of a building from Norway where there is also FOP for buildings. --MGA73 (talk) 18:07, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Models have copyrights in almost every case. Just as a painters, photographers, and sculptors make creative decisions when they create their works, modelmaking is creative. Consider that if you take a photograph of the building with a point and shoot camera, your image will have a copyright, even though your creative input was limited to picking a location and time of day, and pointing the camera. The modelmaker constantly makes decisions of what details to include and what to omit, how to model surface textures, and so forth in the "lot of hours of work" that you mention. It is a much more creative process than simple photography. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:49, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is a dubious case. Denmark has FOP for buildings and maybe you could define these as being buildings even if they do not have the same size as normal buildings? Are doll houses treated as buildings in Danish FOP situations? That is, if you have a doll house in your home, are you then allowed to take a photo of it? Note that Denmark has full FOP for buildings, so you only need to figure out if it is a building, and not whether the building is in a public place or whether it is permanently installed or anything like that. --Stefan4 (talk) 16:45, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
That line of reasoning does not work. Ships are utilitarian and, therefore, do not have a copyright. Plants and animals do not have a copyright. But models of any of these will have a copyright in almost all jurisdictions. The USA copyright law calls out models explicitly. Although most other countries are not as explicit, I don't think you will find any case law that says that a model is not covered by copyright. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:09, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
What you are saying about utilitarian objects is US-centric and does not apply to many other countries. For example, COM:TOO#Denmark lists a utilitarian knife and a utilitarian chair as copyrighted. I would assume that ships also may be protected by copyright in Denmark. The question is how the law defines a "building". --Stefan4 (talk) 13:53, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I think you misread the law -- in most countries, including the USA, a utilitarian object can have a copyright if its design is sufficiently unique to distinguish it from other such objects. Obviously one cannot have a copyright on all knives, or only the copyright holder could produce them.
We need a Danish speaker here -- the exact meaning of the original Danish word is not something we can address by discussing the meaning of "building". .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:41, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
The Danish word is "bygninger" and it means "buildings". There is no forther help in the law itself regarding the meaning of "buildings". --MGA73 (talk) 19:15, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
The important thing is not so much the exact wording in the law, but more what the writer meant when he wrote the law. To figure out what the writer meant with "bygning", you need to look at other documents, such as Folketinget propositions, court rulings and academic reports. Of course, I have no idea how to find such documents. --Stefan4 (talk) 23:10, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I can't speak for Danish law, but the U.S. FoP for buildings applies to every structure meant for human habitation, including rather unlikely cases like Epcot or the Atomium. Since a human being could hardly fit in one of these models, without any further proof regarding Danish law I'm in favor of deletion as well... -Nard (Hablemonos)(Let's talk) 00:05, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
That's entirely correct -- these would certainly be delete in the USA. However, the English word "building" would include these, I think. "Building" is much broader than "architecture". I am basing my view that they ought to be deleted on the assumption that the Danish legislature intended an FOP similar to that elsewhere, and did not intend to include models, but, while I think that is a good assumption, it's not certain. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:32, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
There was a short discussion in mixed Swedish/Danish at User talk:MGA73/Archive 35#Fråga om byggnader before this undeletion request, but neither MGA73 nor I were certain what "buildings" (or "bygninger") was meant to mean here. Looking at the photo on Wikivoyage (using the link from the talk page discussion), I also see photos of people, and people are not covered by {{FoP-Denmark}}. Real people are {{PD-ineligible}} (or {{PD-animal}} if you claim that God or a stork created the people), but lego people is a different issue. It is possible that there are no noticeable differences between a low-resolution photo of a Lego building and a low-resolution photo of the real building. The Legoland people only get copyright for the differences between the Lego building and the original building, and if you can't even see the differences, then I would assume that everything is fine, as you could say that the photo only is a reproduction of the original building. For example, compare some of the far-away buildings with File:Bergenhus.2.JPG: I hardly see any differences. Comparing with Google Maps, I'm not sure if this is a faithful representation of the location of the buildings. For example, some modern buildings seem to be missing. --Stefan4 (talk) 23:10, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Stefan, if you say that Lego gets copyright only for differences between their model buildings and the original, then you have to say that a photographer gets copyright only for the differences between the original and a photo, which will generally be none. It is clear that making a copy of something generates a new copyright, whether that copy is an oil painting of another painting, a model of a building, or a photograph. The only exception that we honor is PD-Art, for exact copies of old masters, and even that is not accepted in many countries. .     Jim . . . .

File:Fryxellsee.jpg and its derivative work File:Fryxellsee Opt.jpgEdit

Hi,

Those files were deleted according to Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:US Antarctic Program photo library images. As it happens, I asked the photographer, Joe Mastroianni (aka Iceowl), if it would be possible to use his photo. He answered me "That picture I shot is property of the US Antarctic Program and is available through them." (you can ask for confirmation on http://everything2.com/user/iceowl if you want). As a property of the US gov, isn't the photo then PD ? Esprit Fugace (talk) 15:09, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Forward that email to OTRS, please. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 07:38, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
The source is here and states credit as Photograph by: Joe Mastroianni / National Science Foundation. On the DR all files by NSF were kept as very likely to be PD-US. Hence I'd say Symbol support vote.svg Support for restoration without OTRS. --PierreSelim (talk) 09:58, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
No, the NSF credit does not mean that the photographer was an NSF employee, or even that they worked for some other federal government agency. There were many examples in that DR of photos with an NSF credit that were not taken by a federal employee; e.g. this shot was taken by Peter Rejcek, who worked for Raytheon,[8] but his photo is still credited as "Photograph by: Peter Rejcek / National Science Foundation". So an NSF credit does not mean the photo is PD.
I don't know why Joe Mastroianni thinks his photo is USAP property. Maybe he was a federal employee, in which case the photo could be PD. Or maybe he wasn't a federal employee, but for some reason gave the USAP more rights to the photo than required in their standard photo submission form (under which the photographer retains copyright).[9] In that case, the photo would not be PD, and the USAP generally only allows non-commercial use.[10] Or perhaps he is mistaken, and he or his employer still hold the copyright. We probably need to get more information from him to clear this up. Until we do, I Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose undeletion. --Avenue (talk) 10:42, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
I'll try to get him to write you an email, but I really think it shouldn't be necessary. OTRS is a very useful tool, but it tends to become the one and only way to do things - it shouldn't be, as an email is a disreputable proof, and no better than the private message I got from the photographer (which I can't forward). I'll link this conversation in my next message to Joe Mastroianni. Esprit Fugace (talk) 08:42, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't want to bother him any more than necessary either. It seems poor recompense for taking such a wonderful photo. But I think we have to if we want to host the photo here, because so far I can't see why it would meet our licensing policy (i.e. why the photo would be freely licensed or in the public domain). I agree with the second part of his statement you quoted above (that the photo is available from the USAP), but they do not make the photos in the library available under a free license, so if the first part of his statement is true (i.e. the photo is also USAP property), then we can't host it. So I'm hoping he may have been mistaken there. If he initially held and still retains the copyright (as per the USAP's standard submission form), we can host it if he's willing to license the photo freely. The other possibilities are that the photo was a work for hire (for a private employer, in which case we'd need them to freely license it) or in the public domain (if part of his employment duties for a federal agency). --Avenue (talk) 11:52, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

New indent Ok, here's the reply I got :

"As I mentioned, even though I'm the photographer, the photo belongs to the National Science Foundation. You need their approval to use it, not mine. Also, thanks for liking the picture. The NSF has distributed that picture with permission to nearly everybody who asks, so it's all over the place. I don't even know where it is. I never gave it to anyone, actually. But it belongs to them, as that was a condition of my working in Antarctica. Happy holidays. Cheers, Joe"

From what I read of such an answer, the copyright of this image belongs to the NSF, which is a federal agency. Therefore, it should be PD. Shouldn't it ? Esprit Fugace (talk) 22:53, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support then I think. If it's a work for hire by the U.S. Government, which is what that sounds like, then it's PD-USGov. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:00, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
I still have strong doubts about whether the photo was a work for hire for the NSF, and even whether it's the NSF's property. It's clear that Joe believes it belongs to them, and he probably has concrete grounds for that belief. For instance, further down that USAP web page, in the Submissions section, one finds the submission form I linked to above, as well as this brief summary: "You receive photo credit and maintain rights to your photos; however, the image becomes property of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the NSF may use it without your knowledge." So far, so good. But the submission form actually says (in part) that while:
1. I grant the National Science Foundation and its contractor permission to use and distribute, but not sell, the described image. I understand that anyone who wants to sell the photo for profit will contact me.
3. I retain copyright as in NSF’s Grant General Conditions, section 18. (http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/gc1_607.pdf)
So the USAP contradicts itself on the "property" issue, and I think the form would take priority. If Joe signed such a form when he submitted the photo (which seems plausible), he would still hold the copyright. We don't host copyrighted photos unless they are freely licensed, including the right to sell copies of the photo for profit. So I think it's quite possible that (a) the NSF does not have permission to release the photo under a free license, and (b) Joe is the only person who can release it under a free license.
My reading of what Joe's said is that it's at least as likely that he just received an NSF grant supporting his Antarctic work (and was thus required to let them use the photo) as that he was effectively a federal employee. Section 18 of the NSF’s Grant General Conditions says that "[...] the Federal government will have a nonexclusive, nontransferable, irrevocable, royalty-free license to exercise or have exercised for or on behalf of the U.S. throughout the world all the exclusive rights provided by copyright. Such license, however, will not include the right to sell copies or phonorecords of the copyrighted works to the public." The rights the NSF has under this clause would not extend to freely licensing the works for commercial use. --Avenue (talk) 01:14, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
... and it's entirely possible his was a different contract than that. That web page is only for photo submissions anyways and has nothing to do with this situation. If the author believes it is owned by the NSF, I don't think there's much point in arguing with him on this particular one. That's about as authoritative as we can get, really. We have no idea what contract he signed or didn't sign, but he does. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:51, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, if we accept the author's word as authoritative, then I don't see how we can host the photo without permission from the NSF. It's their property (not PD), and as far as I know they haven't released it under a free license.
But you do not seem to accept his plain words either ("the photo belongs to the National Science Foundation"), because your conclusion means almost the opposite (the photo is PD, i.e. it is not anyone's property, including the NSF's). You are saying he is mistaken just as much as I am. --Avenue (talk) 04:20, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
It can be PD-USGov, and still the NSF's property. There is more to "property" than just the copyright, though that is our primary concern. If what the author says is true, and I can't think of a reason to doubt it, it should definitely qualify as PD-USGov. It sounds like a work for hire, not something where the copyright existed and was later transferred to the government. Carl Lindberg (talk) 06:28, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I don't see why the photo being the NSF's property as a condition of his working in Antarctica would necessarily mean that it was a work for hire. As you say, we know nothing about the contract he signed. Wouldn't immediate transfer of copyright upon creation also be possible? --Avenue (talk) 13:31, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
Not really. From the 17 USC 105 notes, The bill deliberately avoids making any sort of outright, unqualified prohibition against copyright in works prepared under Government contract or grant. There may well be cases where it would be in the public interest to deny copyright in the writings generated by Government research contracts and the like; it can be assumed that, where a Government agency commissions a work for its own use merely as an alternative to having one of its own employees prepare the work, the right to secure a private copyright would be withheld. In other words, if the end work was going to be owned by the government anyways, it should be PD-USGov. The ambiguity on copyright of commissioned works and works done under grant are there for situations where the person doing the work should retain their copyright, not where the government would own it -- in that case the government just gets a nonexclusive license. But if it's the situation where the author does not retain rights at all, then it should be PD-USGov. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:39, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, if the photo was automatically owned by the federal government as soon as it was taken, it does seem that it's PD, and we can keep it. The photographer's firm belief that it automatically became the government's property trumps my personal doubts, and I'll Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. --Avenue (talk) 02:12, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Jean-Benoît Nadeau.jpg Edit

The reason why I had asked the file to be deleted in the first place was so I can change the file name without the accent on top of the "i" on the name Jean-Benoît because keeping the accent on top of the "i" messes up the image URL. But when I tried to upload the same image so that I can name it differently, WIKI commons did not allow me to do so. So I figured that having an image with a messed up URL is better than having no image at all.

I believe that the image that i have shared in Wikipedia and most specifically in this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cypriot_presidential_election,_2013

is an image that can be used freely by anyone due to it's copyright terms. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kmikecy (talk • contribs)

File:Seligenstadt-orgel-einhardsbasilika.JPGEdit

This image was deleted as violating copyright because there is no freedom of panorama inside buildings in Germany. However, I don't see anything on this image that actually is protected by copyright. The church in question is de:St. Marcellinus und Petrus (Seligenstadt). The architecture is several centuries old, the statues visible in the image are baroque, and the organ may be more modern, but is not any piece of art protected by copyright. So please restore this image. --Rosenzweig τ 17:34, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

File:DAMA - Daphne Museum Art.jpg Edit

devo poter ripristinare il file in oggetto così da poter inserire correttamente le attribuzioni di licenze. Mi è stato cancellato il file prima dei sette giorni e prima che io potessi discutere sull'argomento e correggere le attribuzioni di licenza. Come mai? --Daphnesaturn (talk) 11:55, 28 December 2012 (UTC)DaphnesaturnDaphnesaturn (talk) 11:55, 28 December 2012 (UTC) 28/12/2012

File:Flickr - Israel Defense Forces - Infographics, Ahmed Jabari.jpgEdit

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Antemister, who nominated the file for deletion, did not provide any proof, that the IDF does not have the copyright for the image. The source of the image was the IDFs official Flickr channel, permission was (iirc) granted via an OTRS-ticket as the license on Flickr does not allow commercial use of the file. As the image is currently (propably) the only free depiction of Ahmed Jabari (the two images on Commons are derivatives of the deleted file), it is a valuable contribution to Commons. Styko (talk) 20:41, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

What's the OTRS ticket number? -FASTILY (TALK) 21:23, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't know, as the file has been deleted. I am also not 100% certain, that the file had a ticket, i just remember seeing one there. --Styko (talk) 21:27, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The file has the template {{OTRS permission}}, but the ticket number given is not valid. It is not up to Antemister to prove anything. On Commons, the burden of proof is on the uploader to prove that the image is PD or properly licensed. The only license information we have is that it was NC and therefore the deletion was correct. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:33, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Request for undeletion of public domain work from NASA HQ on flickrEdit

Please undelete all images sourced from http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasahqphoto/ including not just those deleted here given the following new info:

"The prior, express written permission of the Contracting Officer is required to assert copyright in [photographs] first produced in the performance of this contract. (ii) When authorized to assert copyright to the data, the Contractor shall affix the applicable copyright notices of 17 U.S.C. 401 or 402, and an acknowledgment of Government sponsorship (including contract number)."

That's from the FAR. source. What FAR is.

Civilian agencies and NASA are guided by the Federal Acquisition Regulations. There are no" applicable copyright notices of 17 U.S.C. 401 or 402, [or] an acknowledgment of Government sponsorship (including contract number)" affixed to the images on flickr, so it's extremely likely that the images copied from http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasahqphoto/ and subsequently deleted based on the overreaching of what appears to be a bogus copyright notice are PD. Even if you assume, despite the lack of evidence that the photographs are not the work of NASA, but rather taken under contract to NASA, the above is evidence that any such contractors are required to have the express written permission of the NASA Contracting Officer before legally asserting copyright to the data, and we have no evidence of such permission, and we have evidence (in the form of the lack of sponsorship contract number, etc. that the contractor doesn't have such permission. It's been established already elsewhere that NASA doesn't have the authority to assert copyright in images NASA staff created. --Elvey (talk) 10:20, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Note: Fastily can't undelete them; he's no longer an admin. --Elvey (talk) 10:49, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Could you please make a list? Thanks, Yann (talk) 10:52, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
No, I can't - not without admin access.--Elvey (talk) 11:01, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - actually, three comments. First, unlike the notice required under the old copyright law, the FAR notice referred to above did not need to be attached to the face of the image. It could be on the back of a paper image, or in associated data of a digital image. Second, NASA can and does publish images that are not the work of employees or contractors, so the assumption that any image that appears on a NASA web site is one or the other is incorrect. Third, administrative access won't help in making such a list. It will be a long slog through searches of many DRs. It is unrealistic to ask others to do it. UnDRs are intended for specific cases, not broad classes of files. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:48, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I don't think I would support a general undeletion because of the FAR section. That is more targeted to computer software and technical data ("recorded information of a technical or scientific nature") and not a completely generic thing which covers photographs and the like. Anyways, the specific NASA contract is what really matters, i.e. what the contractor actually signed; if it did not conform to FAR that is NASA's fault, not the contractor's, and there is no way that would ever cause a contractor's copyright to be lost. In the case of Commons:Deletion_requests/NASA_images_of_User:Huntster however I would Symbol support vote.svg Support. Those seem to have been deleted because they are CC-BY-NC on the NASA HQ site, which is inaccurate as most of those photos are PD-USGov. They referred to a "non-commercial" restriction but that is about NASA's publicity or trademark rights, and have nothing to do with copyright -- the nominator was quite mistaken on that point. See m:Wikilegal/NASA_images#Restrictions_on_Use. The fact that a NASA contractor runs the Flickr account is immaterial. The other deletion reason given is much more reasonable on its face -- they are credited to "NASA/Bill Ingalls" and Ingalls has his own commercial photo site. If those were indeed taken by an outside contractor and used under license by NASA, that would indeed be a good reason for deletion as they would not be PD-USGov. However, per Ingalls' own twitter account, he is a "Project Mgr and Sr NASA Photographer based in Washington, DC, but often found in other corners of the world". So, he is a NASA employee, but does some of his own photography on the side. That is perfectly fine, but he's still an employee, and his NASA work is therefore PD-USGov-NASA. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:22, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Undeletion of the four Ingalls images seems justified because the creditline implies NASA work, it would be different if only credited to Bill Ingalls. --Denniss (talk) 16:15, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
