Oona O'Neill photoEdit

Sorry, but no. The back shows it was taken in London by Paul Popper there.

  • Try this. It's from the New York World-Telegram Sun and WP uses a lot of PD photos from it. The PD tag for the photos from the collection. We hope (talk) 13:07, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Commons-emblem-hand.svg Hello Light show,

You have uploaded several files that are copyright violations and you have done so despite our requests not to do so, and despite our instructions. If you do not stop uploading files that are not free, your account will be blocked. See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons. You may also find Commons:Image casebook useful. Please leave me a message if you have further questions.

  • You just approved the deletion of a Carly Simon image for no logical reason. The deletion was first made because an editor felt he needed to see the reverse side of the photo. I stated that I owned the photo, that the reverse side was blank, and that I would if asked scan and show it. You simply ignored that in your rationale:
There is no evidence presented to substantiate this (probably false) PD claim.
For the record, I fail to see how that is a copyvio by any stretch of the imagination. I have also been under the misassumption that Commons editors respected AGF guidelines, since most of your rationales include, "probably false," which implies the exact opposite. --Light show (talk) 04:06, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
I noticed this and this, which were created with photos you uploaded after I warned you about uploading photos of questionable copyright status. Since you have decided to ignore my warning, you are blocked until you decide you are ready to adhere to our copyright policies -FASTILY 22:23, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I, on the other hand, noticed you coincidentally blocked me within a few minutes after I requested undeletion of a photo, which has nothing to do with uploading anything. --Light show (talk) 23:00, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
In any case, as it's apparent from this discussion, as long as the "Commons policies" appear to contradict and override well established U.S. law, I'll have to stick with the law. --Light show (talk) 05:26, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Re: Brando photo: Per the discussion to undelete this photo, besides mine, there were two independent opinions about its PD status. One, by Jim Woodward, was essentially an "arguable" opinion, relying primarily on a boilerplate statement printed by the studios to return the photo after using, and using that as proof that it was never published.
The essentially opposing opinion, by Carl Lindberg, was based solely on stated law, not opinion, with a supporting link to the main Warner Brothers case (7/2011) covering the issue. That case makes it totally clear that a "general publication" occurred because it was intended to publicize a film.
In all of my uploads, I rely on U.S. copyright law, not that of the EU or UK, whose laws are totally different. It seems strange to permanently block an editor who has uploaded many valuable images because he relies on U.S. copyright law, and uses the same copyright tags- mostly U.S.- when doing so. The result is that you are punishing an editor for not violating the law. If I were to upload a U.S. PD image, but claimed its status based on UK or EU laws which nullified its PD status, I would be violating U.S. law along with WP guidelines. It would force me to commit "third-party" copyfraud, by claiming a U.S. PD image was not in fact PD, and was assumed (as Masem stated) to be copyrighted by someone, somewhere, somehow, outside the U.S. I think I should be unblocked and you should revise your tags instead by eliminating all U.S. law. --Light show (talk) 02:11, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Mass deletions by User talk:Fastily: Over the last few minutes, they bot-tagged nearly 200 650 PD images for deletion based on an irrelevant rationale, once again simply ignoring PD law in the U.S. --Light show (talk) 19:59, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
I also noticed that from a random survey of the photos tagged, the average one is used on around five different articles, typically as a lead image. That would mean that over 3,000 articles will be affected. A few dozen were self-taken photos and others were either from the U.S. government or older than 1923. --Light show (talk) 01:43, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
All bot tags have since been reverted. --Light show (talk) 19:22, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Unblock requestEdit

Unblock request declined

This blocked user asked to be unblocked, but one or more administrators has reviewed and declined this request. Other administrators can also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason.

Request reason: "There's no way to respond to new deletion requests, such as File:Grace Kelly - High Society.jpg, File:Julie Andrews - 1967.jpg and File:Piper Laurie - 1952.jpg. All commenting editors for all the newly-tagged images are incorrect in their rationales, in fact the rationale for Laurie is totally ridiculous. Also, some of the above explanations should be considered."
Decline reason: "No real reason for unblocking was given. That a block disables you to respond to DRs is normal. A block is meant to prevent users from editing. Jcb (talk) 23:33, 10 December 2013 (UTC)"

Administrators: This template should be removed when the block has expired.

For the Piper Laurie photo, for example, a "Motion Picture" copyright is totally separate from a photograph copyright, and each requires a separate registration form. Movies receive a "PA" (Performing Arts) copyright and photos would received a "VA" (Visual Arts) copyright. Therefore the details about the movie copyright are irrelevant to publicity photos, as pointed out to the same tagging editor on previously tagged photos, which were subsequently "Kept." This is not a screen shot. --Light show (talk) 18:32, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
