File:Ervaren lichaamsbeeld, naar geslacht en naar bmi, bevolking van 18 jaar en ouder, 2014 (in procenten).pngEdit

As Natuur12 indicated on Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive/2019-01#File:Ervaren lichaamsbeeld, naar geslacht en naar bmi, bevolking van 18 jaar en ouder, 2014 (in procenten).png, it was well sourced.

Considering this was a rather poor speedy deletion tag by ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 who doesn't understand Dutch and deletion by Jcb, I also request undeletion of everything else in the batch:

If needed, those can go through a regular DR process. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 06:24, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

  Oppose - I rechecked several and all of them miss vital source information. E.g. PDF documents with several images in them without any source/authorship information. Jcb (talk) 06:30, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
No offense but I'm not taking your word on this kind of thing. I've been burned a few too many times on that. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 07:24, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
I left some notes behind the file names. Most files if not all files have dubious own work claims. Natuur12 (talk) 20:23, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
@Natuur12: thanks! Files like File:Emigratie vroeger en nu.jpg seem like they are strictly educational, but the quality (hand-written text, no professional-looking illustrations, as far as I can tell from the Google thumbnail) makes it unlikely to be useful. I wonder where the obvious violations for the PDF documents were taken from? I can't see those at all. Knowing that may aid in finding sources for PD-simple files. File:Aandeel lezers en niet-lezers in een week, bevolking van 13 jaar en ouder, naar enkele achtergrondkenmerken.png was not claimed as own work either, but looking anything up is troublesome for deleted files, so a DR would help. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 22:26, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: I left more notes. Strakhov (talk) 03:23, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
@Strakhov: also thanks! I think it'll take one or more people who understand Dutch and Dutch culture to sort all of these out. I'm willing to go over them in a DR, I think Donald Trung also won't mind. The obvious copyvios Natuur12 identified and Homer could potentially remain deleted. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 06:23, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Well, most files are just plain garbage and undeleting them would be a waste of resources. The files seem to be part of some middle school project. The copyright violations are low quality teaching material. The non copyright violations are CBR graphs or self created drawings. While the deletion reason for most files is faulty there's little point in undeleting them. (CBS graps exlcuded). Natuur12 (talk) 15:24, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
@Natuur12: I'd be okay with undeletion of the CBS graphs and leaving everything else. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 07:46, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

File:JANDI DAVID (1893-1944).jpgEdit

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Sabnic Artist as stated in the file name died in 1944. Been public domain in Hungary since 2015. Abzeronow (talk) 00:02, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

  Info This is upper-left image from this site. While it is likely to be PD in Hungary, we cannot be sure as we know nothing about the painting history (if it was published first time less than 25 years ago, it may be copyrighted in EU, including Hungary). Also, we know nothing about its US copyright status.   Neutral Ankry (talk) 10:05, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. Yeah, I can't find any info on that particular painting from a web search. It looks like it could have been published in the 1920s (1930s also possible). Or it could have been unpublished, which could mean some issue with publication right in the EU but now public domain in the US due to author death date. Abzeronow (talk) 17:41, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
  Info I am waiting for another admin opinion before final decission here. Ankry (talk) 06:59, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Unjustified nominations by User:ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2Edit

I made some review of images recenly nominated by this user and found many that are doubtful IMO. While the most appropriate license templates might be different, they were not totally incorrect, and I found requesting OTRS permission here as an incorrect action that totally misleads uploaders.

  • Old PD book scans:
    • a 1889/1908 books by
Taras Shevchenko  (1814–1861)        
Alternative names Tarass Chevtchenko
Description Ukrainian poet and painter
Date of birth/death 9 March 1814 (25 February 1814 in Julian calendar) 10 March 1861 (26 February 1861 in Julian calendar)
Location of birth/death Moryntsi Saint Petersburg
Authority control
creator QS:P170,Q134958
  • a 1858 photo (likely from a 1858 book):
  • photos of a 1912 medal:
  • photos of a 1713 medal:
  • photos of a 1761 medal:
  • photos of a 1838 medal:
  • photos of a 1902 medal:
  • photos of a 1821 medal:
  • a non-copyrightable cover:

The photos seem to be amateur, non-professional, with EXIF. @Jcb: if you see any reasons to doubt these images to be PD, please elaborate. While some images of this uploader are clear copyvios, many of the above are not even copyrightable. IMO, the PD/copyvio ratio among deletion nominations here is too high. Ankry (talk) 11:02, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

You will normally see that such a file is uploaded by a user uploading e.g. 90% blatant copyright violations. (I checked some of the above, were this turned out to be the case). If a user uploads a batch of copyright violations, most admins here just flush the batch, without carefully examining file by file to see if one or two files can be saved. I think this is totally justified as pragmatic use of our limited volunteer resources. If it turns out that some can be undeleted, no problem. Jcb (talk) 11:17, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jcb: I know that this is common practice, and my reservations concerned rather initial nominations than final deletions. But let's focus on these particular files, which IMO are either just PD (regardles of their origin) or cases where there is no clear doubts whether they are own works of the uploader. Ankry (talk) 17:08, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support No evidence that these files are copyright violations. Yann (talk) 18:28, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Just curious – how may “П'ЯТА СЕСІЯ УКРАЇНСЬКОЇ НАЦІОНАЛЬНОЇ РАДИ. 1962. На чужині.jpg” be {{PD-UAGovDoc}}? Is Ankry serious about Ukrainian jurisdiction extending to that event? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 05:10, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: No idea. IMHO it does qualify for PD-Text, though. Strakhov (talk) ~
I think I found somewhere the information that it applies also to Ukrainian SSR law; but maybe indeed my mistake. Ankry (talk) 08:44, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

I was recently contacted by Albinfo regarding an upload by Cunolf who is his mentee in German Wikipedia's "adopt-a-user" program. Apparently, although with a somewhat problematic upload history, Cunolf is among those affected by questionable "no permission" tagging by this user. Specifically, this is about File:14 Kundelfingerhof um 2000.png. It's apparently a self-scanned older photograph from a slightly crumpled original in an album (even the photo corners are visible). Cunolf's "own work" declaration therefore seems plausible enough for such a 2000 photograph (it's not unusual to have own older photographic prints and to scan them now) - at least plausible enough for a regular deletion request, it seems to me. Pinging Ellin Beltz who deleted that image, what do you think? Undelete it and convert to DR, would you agree? Gestumblindi (talk) 16:58, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

@Gestumblindi: how does this affect undeletion process of the above mentioned images? If you wish to undelete another image, create a separate request. Ankry (talk) 05:51, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: I added it here because it is another case of the nominations by User:ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2, so I thought this is the most fitting place. Gestumblindi (talk) 08:46, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Gestumblindi: If you are not asking for undeletion nor expressing an opinion about undeletion then it is not. Ankry (talk) 08:53, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Well, personally I would undelete (and I agree with you regarding the other files), but I would like to hear Ellin Beltz' opinion first. Gestumblindi (talk) 08:54, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Gestumblindi Restored file, sent to DN per your request, please see Commons:Deletion_requests/File:14_Kundelfingerhof_um_2000.png. I did not look at any other image in this list, and have no current opinion other than I agree with Jcb as above. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:28, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Reposição de ficheiros de João Justiceiro (2)Edit

Dando prosseguimento aos pedidos de reposição por partes, solicito o restauro destes arquivos, sinalizados como "violação de direitos autorais":

São mapas de minha autoria derivados de trabalhos já existentes no Commons (os originais estão na descrição). O último é um mapa retirado da web com a devida referência.

João Justiceiro (talk) 04:17, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jcb: can you shed some --MB-one (talk) 20:26, 20 May 2019 (UTC)light on this?

The maps come from non-free sources, e.g. here. Jcb (talk) 21:06, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jcb: Por favor, pare de ficar distorcendo as coisas. O mapa original (do exemplo que você citou) é este, e inclusive está citado no mesmo arquivo como eu já disse ali em cima. Obviamente, para fazer o desenho tem que ter a fonte, que é esse link que você colocou. João Justiceiro (talk) 05:39, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Jmabel, você deu uma ajuda da última vez. Poderia faze-lo de novo, se possível? João Justiceiro (talk) 04:05, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jcb: I'm confused. None of these much resemble, which you link. For which map are you saying that is a source? I'm guessing File:Mapa da Eleição estadual em Minas Gerais em 2018 por município (2.º turno).svg since it is the only map of Minas Gerais among those listed above. Obviously, any district-by-district outline map of Minas Gerais is going to have some close resemblance, but I don't see anything to suggest that particular map was its source. Could you be more specific? The uploaded file was described as deriving from File:Brazil Minas Gerais location map.svg, which might need more explicit attribution of authorship than was given, but which is certainly free-licensed. Do you have some basis to say that in fact it derived from the file rather than the one that was attributed? - Jmabel ! talk 05:07, 22 May 2019 (UTC)


I'm asking for the undeletion of Merkely.png as I would like to use the picture in a Wikipedia article about him. This task was assigned to me by himself. He is the rector of the university (Semmelweis University) I work for and a colleague of mine, Attila Kovács took the picture. The university has copyright over the picture and has given me permission to use images in its possession and displayed on its website.

How did it come about that you claimed that this is your own photo and you own the copyright when you uploaded the photo? Thuresson (talk) 22:06, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  Question Where is a free license permission from the University authorities? We need to verify it. And where can the authorship of Attila Kovács be confirmed as we cannot rely on your statements. Ankry (talk) 22:31, 20 May 2019 (UTC)


Maitreya Maitreyan has shot many pictures of the actor Kani Kusruti. Other photographers who have shot just as many pictures of her are Anjali Gopan and Anand Gandhi. The picture in question has indeed been shot by Anand Gandhi and not Maitreya.

Paris - 3D Printed Stilettos for Dyson Showroom Exhibition - Jiri Evenhuis 2005Edit

Dear Sir / Madam,

This images of which I am the sole copyright holder has been deleted and it's unclear why.

This is work that I have made and photographed myself.

I have gone through the steps and provided the necessary permission.

The photo had also already been approved but still it was deleted without warning.

The same has happened to the below two files.

Please undelete.

Kind regards,

Jiri Evenhuis
