  •   Oppose If a free license has been sent to OTRS, then the file will be restored automatically when and if the email is received, processed, and approved. Note that OTRS, like Commons, is entirely staffed by volunteers, and, also like Commons, is shorthanded, so it may be close to 179 days before the email is processed and the file is restored.

If the message was sent to the English language version of OTRS and the email has been properly received there the sender will receive an automatic reply with the ticket number. If the sender has not had a reply, please check that it was sent correctly and try again. Other language versions may or may not provide the automatic reply. Ankry (talk) 06:25, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

@Anouchkavr: Please note, that if copyright owner is not the photographer, the person sending permission has also to prove that they own copyright (eg. providing the copyright transfer contract). These are complex cases and cannot be resolved quickly. Ankry (talk) 06:29, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

(cc @EugeneZelenko:) -Theklan (talk) 10:56, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

I think Commons:OTRS is best way to confirm authorship in this situation. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:50, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
So the author of a work has to confirm that he is the author uploading it and then sending OTRS to say he is the author? Then what is the point of stating it when uploading? There's no reason to delete this video, and we are openly saying video-creators that we don't want their high quality content on Commons. -Theklan (talk) 13:56, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: Commons:OTRS#When contacting OTRS is unnecessary clearly states « I created the file myself, it hasn't been previously published, and I am the sole owner of its copyright. Just follow the instructions found on the Commons:Upload page, unless the image/ file is of outstanding or professional quality or there is some other reason your authorship may be doubted. » So could you tell why you doubted the authorship? Same, could you tell us why you thought this file was Commons:Derivative works? (and derivative of what?) Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 15:07, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

This items should also be reviewed, because of the same reasons:

All the content was created by students who were supervised by me. The content is original and can't be deleted only because it seem too good. Please, undelete it. -Theklan (talk) 14:08, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Such diagrams, posters etc. get regularly uploaded by "drive by" users, who just copied them from anywhere else. I would like get get opinions from other admins. The files should be (if at all) restored by another admin. regards --JuTa 16:44, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@JuTa: Thanks for your insights. In this case all of them were specially created for Commons, including illustrations. The videos were also created specially for this and I reviewed all the music used on them, so it was free (PD or cited in the description). They even used Commons files in some cases and stated it in the description. We can't assume that something is a DW only because we think it is "good", I think is a bad assumption that doesn't encorauge users to create and share their great works. -Theklan (talk) 16:48, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@DarwIn: Thanks for your reviews! I think that getting a new confirmation via OTRS would be impossible now, so maybe this video will be deleted forever. Nevertheless, if someone appears in an interview created to be on Commons we can assume without doubt that he wants to be on Commons. -Theklan (talk) 17:09, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@Theklan: Hey! I understand that, the problem is that we have no way to be sure they understand what means being in Commons, as most people mistake it for Wikipedia, and understand it as an educational, non-commercial project. I'm alternating the reviews with other stuff, but if you need them to go faster please tell me.-- Darwin Ahoy! 12:24, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
@Darwin: It would be interesting to go faster, of course, but it's not your fault that this files were deleted incorrectly. As far as I know, everyone who appears in the video know what is for, but if you feel that is better having it deleted, I'm not going to start an argument I can't win, because I can't contact the students again and ask them to find the interviewed again to fill the OTRS. -Theklan (talk) 13:45, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

  Comment I think it is important to mention that it is not the first time EugeneZelenko targets content produced within the context of an education program. As you can see partially in User_talk:EugeneZelenko/Archive29#Derivative_work_-_audio_description --and I can provide more links if it is deemed necessary--, he deleted audio files of paintings from Brazilian collections my students had produced because they were described in Portuguese and he didn't know the language. I can only express my solidarity to Theklan and students. My sense is that EugeneZelenko should be removed of administrative rights, due to systematic failure of complying to basic rules of this project. --Joalpe (talk) 10:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Project scope/Precautionary principle is also basic rule of this project. It's always good idea to plan ahead before starting mass project: how to not create ambiguities in authorship and copyrights status in these particular cases. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:03, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm not blaming you, @EugeneZelenko:. I think that deciding what should be deleted on Commons is a huge responsability that I don't want (now) for my own. I highly appreciate admins on Wikimedia projects, I'm also one on euwiki and I know that sometimes we have to make hard decissions. On the other hand, undeletion request was made long ago, and there are still lots of things to undelete. It would be interesting if you could also help @DarwIn: on this complex task. Thanks! -Theklan (talk) 21:04, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
It looks a bit overwhelming, such a huge work... deleted! I confess I do not know the details of their full compliance with licensing requirements, I can only trust Galder. Still I think that if something is to be deleted, you need at least some good leads to think materials may not be up to licensing standards. Otherwise we are either falling in the gulf of presumption of guilt or shouldering extra burden on contributors hence discouraging them from adding to Commons. Iñaki LL (talk) 20:38, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
I think it's good idea to find better procedure for such uploads. I still think that OTRS is best way to do this, because of next factors:
  • quite often music material is uploaded on Commons with completely false copyrights claims;
  • in many video background music is not attributed at all, mis-attributed or licensed under non-commercial/non-derivative Creative Commons licenses;
  • in my university days, enough students use plagiarism as easy way to make assignments.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 12:55, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: Can you point me of a single video that you deleted in which music was not properly attributed? If that happens, I must take note for the students! And any image you deleted in which you claimed it was a DW that is, indeed, a DW? Thanks! -Theklan (talk) 17:23, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Not of these videos are different from quite typical scenarios I provided above. I don't think that OTRS is excessive measure in this case. You could try to monitor Category:Copyright violations to understand administrators' point of view. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:01, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: You changed perfectly sourced videos and images with claims of being DW. I will assume you had a source to claim that they were derivated from somewhere else. I know that is harder for videos, but for images is really easy to know if they are copied from somewhere... and you still said they were DW. I think that this breaks the idea behind Commons. -Theklan (talk) 21:22, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
Many problematic files are also "perfectly" sourced and these uploads don't look too different. I think it is reasonable to have authorship/permission confirmations in OTRS for any modern art and music and these files are not exception. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:05, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: So let me know the answer: if we have students again uploading perfectly correct material to Commons... are you planning to delete it? Because I have to take measures for that and be prepared! -Theklan (talk) 10:57, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
To reduce misunderstandings, perfectly correct status should be comprehensible to 3rd parties, not only students' teacher. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:57, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

this image. Ankry (talk) 18:39, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, it does look like it was taken from a window. The DR calls the depicted building a "school". Looks like a mosque, an apartment building behind it and some sort of fenced in area (a small association football pitch?). @Albinfo:, @Kj1595: if they have any idea if depicted area is a public place or not.

File:Niki Karimi01.jpg, File:Niki Karimi - Derived.jpg

Those images have been deleted after many years without any discussion. Only for the first one is given a reason ("An older version with similar resolution is found here.") and this reason is wrong: The image was added to en Wikipedia in January 2008 [1] and the date of the blog where it allegedly was copied from is from دوشنبه 27 مهر 1388, which means October 2009.

Also it should be made clear to the user who deleted the files that it is very bad style to just write "Copyright violation: The source file was removed to the copyvio issues" as reason for the deletion. How should one find out what "the source file" and what "the copyvio issues" were after everything has been deleted?? --178.12.234.85 00:22, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

File:Republican Court by Rufus Griswold 001.tiff through File:Republican Court by Rufus Griswold 387.tiff

The above uploads were all deleted by Jcb without a chance to respond to whatever unspecified information was missing. All images were uploaded with Pattypan with a spreadsheet including a filled out Template:Book and complete source and license information. All of the images were clearly public domain and included in Category:The Republican Court, and each image and the category indicated a publication date of 1856. If Pattypan failed to include some of the necessary information I can easily and quickly address it with AutoWikiBrowser. Also, a number of the images were included in image-specific categories and Wikidata items, all of which has also been undone and must be redone manually if the uploads are not restored. Gamaliel (talk) 19:36, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

@Gamaliel: Technically, we need the filled information template in order to undelete the files, containing information lika source/author/copyright that is required. It can be provided here or edited as file pages without files.
Another problem here is: why tiff? Why not some compressed and/or multipage format, like djvu/PDF or even jpg? Why do you want large, uncompressed files 20-40MB per page that would generate huge transfer traffic per every read? I think, this resolution / format needs special explanation. What would be use of these files? Ankry (talk) 20:19, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

I selected these images because I wanted the highest quality available for use on Wikipedia articles, wikidata items, and OCR for Wikisource. AFAIK non-preferred image size is not a valid criteria for speedy deletion, nor was it cited for deletion in this case. Gamaliel (talk) 21:18, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
@Gamaliel: For Wikisource, a DjVu file is more useful, than separate high-res scans (the DjVu from IA already contains good quality OCR layer). Also, files with illustrations should be restored and possibly few pages as illustrations for Wikipedia. Anything else? I have already restored few of them; Do you need anything more? Please provide a list of pages if so. Ankry (talk) 06:59, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: Thank you for restoring the pages with the illustrations. As those were the ones that I focused on initially you've also restored all the categories, Wikidata links, etc., which I appreciate. I can't think of an immediate use for the other pages so I'm fine with leaving them deleted. Gamaliel (talk) 11:14, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

photos from MTur Destinos

I could find two:

  1. File:GleidsonSantos Igreja de Sao Francisco Paulo Afonso BA.jpg
  2. File:Ground Zero - Recife - Pernambuco-Brasil.jpg

Reasons (per Commons:Deletion requests/File:GleidsonSantos Igreja de Sao Francisco Paulo Afonso BA.jpg):

  1. Flickr descriptions attribute the images to MTur Destinos.
  2. Todas as fotos com a tag MTurDestinos são de domínio público e tem permissão de uso livre e por tempo indeterminado para uso total e irrestrito e gratuito em praça nacional e internacional, exceto as imagens com a tag “fotos humanizadas 2018” que possuem pessoas onde o direito de uso é pelo período de 05 (cinco) anos a contar...

--Roy17 (talk) 17:09, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

  Info I do not think that "permissão de uso" means also "derivative work creation". IMO, either Flickr license should be changed, or we need an OTRS permission from the author. Ankry (talk) 14:04, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Please read the entire article: http://www.turismo.gov.br/%C3%BAltimas-not%C3%ADcias/11091-minist%C3%A9rio-do-turismo-lan%C3%A7a-acervo-com-imagens-de-169-destinos.html . The gist of it is, the flickr account is official and the photos are in public domain and 100% free for reuse.--Roy17 (talk) 10:25, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
{{o}} per COM:PDM. PDM generally means that user is unsure about the photo copyright status or that they (for some reason) do not want to take responsibility for granting a license. I see even no clear evidence that they have rights to license the image. Free use is not enough. I understand that another admin may have different opinion here. Ankry (talk) 20:09, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I'll explain in point form:
  1. Photos all attributed as John Doe/MTur.
  2. Labelled as PDM.
  3. On MTur's flickr user page, it says Todas as fotos com a tag MTurDestinos são de domínio público e tem permissão de uso livre e por tempo indeterminado para uso total e irrestrito e gratuito em praça nacional e internacional, exceto as imagens com a tag “fotos humanizadas 2018” que possuem pessoas onde o direito de uso é pelo período de 05 (cinco) anos a contar do dia 03 de Abril de 2018.
    1. domínio público = public domain
    2. permissão de uso livre = free use
    3. tempo indeterminado = unlimited in time = forever
    4. total e irrestrito = in whole or unrestricted
    5. gratuito = free of charge
    6. em praça nacional e internacional = domestically or internationally
    7. except the ones tagged with fotos humanizadas 2018 e.g. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mturdestinos/27272778778/ which includes an explicit statement Imagem disponível para utilização até o dia 03/04/2023
  4. The flickr account is official.
The licensing statement covers time limits, form of reuse, cost and jurisdiction. What more can be expected? The copyright holder does know what it has on hands, that it singles out the ones they own copyright until 2023.
And the tourism minister Marx Beltrão goes on to say: uma vez que todos poderão utilizar, de forma gratuita, as imagens para ações publicitárias, feiras e promoção dos destinos.
I suppose Ankry did not read the entire article.--Roy17 (talk) 11:03, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
@Roy17: While I no longer oppose undeletion, I still think that PDM here cannot be considered an undeletion rationale. And I also doubt whether the article can be. I think, this case should be discussed in COM:VPC and either a specific copyright template or an OTRS ticket created. I would also welcome an opinion from other admins. Ankry (talk) 15:46, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
In this case it's not PDM but PD-author. I would not hesitate to give a positive licence review, but a deletion request had been started. I expressed my support in the DR and on File talk:Ground Zero - Recife - Pernambuco-Brasil.jpg, but Jcb struck them out out of process. I don't think this is any different from cases like US federal agencies tagging their flickr photos with unfree licences. We can readily accept them because a valid, explicit licensing statement is in place and the tag is simply wrong. Both the flickr user page and the ministry article have been archived.--Roy17 (talk) 16:53, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
COM:PDM explains why PD-Author cannot be used instead of PDM in such cases. It has to be declared explicitely somewhere. Ankry (talk) 18:57, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Here: https://www.flickr.com/people/mturdestinos/ .--Roy17 (talk) 00:47, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
The doubts from COM:PDM still apply, IMO. (hint: the clause In some countries this may not be legally possible...) Ankry (talk) 07:21, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

  Not done COM:VPC discussion is needed to decide whether the MTur Destinos's permission + their PDM is acceptable for Commons. Ankry (talk) 06:09, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

File:Kent Tate.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Please restore image and/or explain what the violation is and why posting this image created a violation. Thank you! Tate1956 (talk) 01:17, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

@Tate1956: If an image was published outside Commons prior to upload here, we need an evidence that it was freely licensed by its original author, and not just copied from that place by somebody else. If the initial publications contains information from the image author about free license, link to this information is needed. If not, this should be resolved off-wiki, see COM:OTRS. {{own}} declaration works only for images that were not published anywhere, yet. These are because of legal reasons (we do not accept possibility that somebody may be authorized to request image deletion on legal basis as this makes the status of potential image reusers unstable); see also COM:PCP. Ankry (talk) 03:31, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: Is this not possible to use this same image that I've used in other platforms, i.e. on my Vimeo page? I had the understanding that I could upload under the licensing option I selected my own work to potentially be used in the Kent Tate Wikipedia. Am I mistaken because I am sorry but I really don't get what the problem is and how I can go about resolving it.Tate1956 (talk) 16:45, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
It is possible. But requires that you either (1) declare a free license on a platform where you used the image initially (first time) or (2) you follow COM:OTRS instructions sending a written free license permission. Just declaring a license on-wiki is not possible in such cases. Ankry (talk) 16:48, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

--Itsdawnnnnn (talk) 03:56, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

@Itsdawnnnnn: there are 3 possibilities: (1) unpublished, high resolution image with camera info in EXIF uploaded personally by its author (who owns copyright to the image), (2) an image that was published by its author on the web under a free license (see COM:L for details of acceptable licenses) you need to provide links to the source page and to a page with evidence of the license, and (3) written free license permission send to our OTRS system directly by the copyright holder following COM:OTRS instructions. But note, that the third way can take months before the email is processed by volunteers. Note also, that Wikimedia accounts are personal and cannot be operated by more than a single person.

  • Nope. The actual purpose of this category is no other than highlighting great-great-great-great grandchildren of a relevant figure in Chilean history. But these people, other than being descendants, have no connection to the life or work of Andrés Bello and so, such a category should not exist. Assuming Historiadormundo is Catholic/Christian (excuse me if you are not), would it be okay to create a category for the descendants of Adam and Eve? That would be mad. So is this suggestion. They were not even contemporary to Bello! They may be relevant on their own, so why link them to a long-deceased individual? --küñall (nütramyen) 23:42, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

File:AE Backus.jpg

This is a painting that I legally purchased at the AE Backus Museum. I have proof of purchase. I took the picture and released the rights into the public domain. The painting was painted over forty years ago. The painter has been dead for twenty nine years. There is no copyright notice for this painting. And I challenge anyone to produce evidence that it was ever copyrighted. Any assertion of copyright violation would appear to be ludicrous.

Does Wikimedia automatically delete something when there is an obviously frivolous assertion of copyright?--LarryStevens (talk) 04:14, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

@LarryStevens: Painting ownership is independent to painting copyright ownership. The latter belongs by default to the painter heirs unless explicitely transferred in a contract or expired. We do not know whether you have bought only the painting itself, or you have also bought copyright to the painting; we even don't know if the museum was authorized to sell the copyright. According to our rules, such unceirtainty is a reason to delete the image per COM:PCP. So, please check carefully your contract.
As the painting originates from US, it is also possible that its copyright expired already. But more information is needed to verify that. As a general rule, copyright expire 70 years after the author's death (in 2061). But in some cases, depending on when it was made available to the public for the first time (eg. in a museum or exhibition) and whether it contains copyright notice on the reverse side and/or whether its copyright has been registered in US Copyright Office. So in this case more information is needed. While uploading you declared that the painting was made or published in March 2012, which is unlikely.
Also, note, that if the painting's copyright expire already, you would not be authorized to grant a license to the image: if it is in Public Domain, you cannot request to be attributed as its author as you did (making a 2D copy of a 2D painting does not establish a new copyright in US; only the copyright to the original painting, if exist, can the base of any copyright-based action, like licensing).
So, if you provide more information, as mentioned above, it is likely, that the image can be restored. But I   Oppose undeletion it its current state. Ankry (talk) 05:20, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

File:GlokkNine.jpg

This file was unfairly deleted. My file was under the public domain, in Wikimedia commons there mugshots of rappers such as Lil Pump, YNW Melly, Wide Neck, and even Atlanta based rapper Offset. The image of GlokkNine is just like those images, it is a mugshot in Orange County Florida police departments. The website of the Orange County Florida records stated, "All of the photographs and records on this website are parts of public records. We are under no legal obligation to remove anything on this website. Publishers are NOT REQUIRED to obtain permission from anyone to post public records from anyone to post public records emanating from law enforcement agencies anywhere in the United States, either in part or in whole.". The link is here. Why was GlokkNine's image removed but other rappers mugshot kept? The image is an image from the United States of America government, this isn't some random country where public domain images are restricted. Lastly, the history of my image showed before JCB deleted it, another wikipedian edited and added the template for the image being part of United States governmental public image. If I post the template in the very bottom of this page, listed below just like YNW Melly's than my image is not in violation of copyright law as the arrest occured in Florida and is free to the public. Therefore, Jcb unfairly deleted my image and File:GLokkNine.jpg should be restored. The image existed for almost half a month before being deleted. The template below is the template I will use for GlokkNine, it will be more than justifiable then. {{PD-FLGov}}

File:Gare de Brazzaville 1957.jpg

Hello Jcb and Abzeronow,

Your reason for this deletion was "1950's Congolese postcard. Noncommercial license at source. Could be PD if first published in Republic of the Congo in 1957 if truly anonymous. Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Republic of the Congo".

Note that in 1957, republic of the Congo was a French Territory, because the independence occurred in August 1960. The photography had probably been taken by a French citizen at that time. Moreover, when reading the Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Republic of the Congo, it is expressly written " Photograph : Create + 25 years; Anonymous : Publish + 50 years; Anonymous or pseudonymous works are protected for 50 years since the date of creation. ". Therefore, we are far beyond the limit of 50 years. For this reason I would suggest to restore this post cards. Otherwise, could you provide me the precise reason for this deletion instead of the generic one.

P.S. : What does PD mean in the motive sentence ? Best regards, --Liandi Navek (talk) 22:58, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

PD = Public Domain. If this was taken by a French citizen, then probably death of the author + 70 years would apply. Jcb (talk) 00:08, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
  Oppose citizenship of the author may be irrelevant; but as the postcard seems to be published under French jurisdiction, French copyright law applies here (70 pma or 70 post publication foe anonymous works). I did not found any info whether members of Union Française autonomy concerned copyright (so assuming: no) nor that copyright extension to 70 years did not apply to works from former colonies (assuming: it applied). Note, that I see no way for the image to be PD in 1996, so URAA applies also. Ankry (talk) 06:45, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
As Jcb and Ankry say, if it was first published under French jurisdiction, it's simply still in copyright as 70 years have not yet passed since 1957. Since Commons cannot currently accept noncommercial licenses, we can't keep it under that license, and have to wait until it becomes public domain in France (which would either be 70 years after death of author or 70 years post publication if truly anonymous). Abzeronow (talk) 16:43, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

  Not done per above comments. If you think that French copyright law is not appropriate here, provide a rationale. Ankry (talk) 06:04, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

The license is set within the image, on the right border of the image. If you enlarge the image, you could read it.

It says: CC-BY-SA and author: DIPF. Is that an optional solution to make the license concrete? The thing is, the website template does not allow any further editing, i.e. a field to put the license in is missing (so far).

The image was published on the website of Fundacion Centro Flamenco who owns all copyright over the image. I received their consent to use the image. I am not sure how to verify the license with wikipedia. Do you require an email from Fundacion Centro Flamenco verifying they have provided me with the right to use the image? If so, where do I send it? The author unknown as all copyright over the image belongs to Centro Flamenco and all rights, including the right of attribution, belong to Fundacion Centro Flamenco.

@BobAwk: As you claimed to be the photographer, we need a proof that that you are Alain Herzog, the author of this photo. If you are unable to do this online, COM:OTRS is the only way. Note, that claiming authorship by somebody who is not the author is both: against Wikimedia Commons rules and illegal (moral rights cannot be transferred). Ankry (talk) 12:28, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Alain Herzog is the official photographer for EPFL (https://people.epfl.ch/alain.herzog).

  1. @BobAwk: Please sign your messages with 4 tildes.
  2. So we can assume that copyright belongs Alain Herzog's employer and we need an evidence that the license was granted by the authorised representative of EPFL or via their official site. We have no evidence that Wikimedia user BobAwk is the authorised representative. And without such evidence the claim that anybody can use the image commercially for any purpose and in an irrevokable way (as the license states) is a potential risk for reuser.

File:RAJIB KARMAKAR photographed by Ithaka Darin Pappas in Los Angeles - 2018.jpg

The user is blocked on enwiki as a sockpuppet of Maxadamia - one of several accounts that each claimed to be a different photographer, yet uploaded photos attributed to each other on Commons.

I took this photo on my own camera back in June 2011. Any other versions of it online have been copied from my online posting. There is no reason for the deletion of my picture as I own all of the copyright. My initial post

According to Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, any image posted with the Public setting carries the implicit acknowledgment that said photo is available for access and use by anyone -- including entities not on Facebook.[1]

I am not 100% sure if what I have provided is enough evidence to show that the photo belongs to me. Please let me know if there is any more specific evidence needed.

--HeyitsBen (talk) 14:36, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@HeyitsBen: Please, do not create duplicate requests: this is not helpful.
What exactly you are talking about?:
  1. cc-by-sa-4.0 license? To use it you must either (1) prove that there is exactly the same (not just similar) license declared in the earlier publication or (2) prove that Wikimedia user uploading the image is the same physical person as the user who published the image earlier elsewhere. The latter cannot be proven on-wiki.
  2. use another license? You need to point out a license template that is accepted by the community or discuss its creation in COM:VPC, not here. Facebook license was found not free enough eg. as it does not grant explicitely free commoercial reuse by anybody or derivative work creation.
A decision that a specific license is acceptable in Commons can be taken neither here not by any single admin decision. Ankry (talk) 05:19, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

File:Georgy Sviridov.png — This is an important photo of one of the most famous Russian composers of the 20th century. It must be restored. Vezirus (talk) 11:57, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Sure. But after you prove that its copyright expired (70 years after the photographer's death, 95 years after first publication or 120 years after the photo was made) or after we receive written free license permission from the photographer. Not before. Photos with unclear copyright status are not accepted here. Ankry (talk) 14:01, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Not doubting the importance of the photograph, but info like publication and photographer are important in determining whether the photo is free or non-free. As Ankry says, we need to be sure it's free in Russia at least. Abzeronow (talk) 16:17, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Incorrectly deleted files

For some reason all 9 files I uploaded with my alt account were deleted:

The vague summary "Copyright violation; see Commons:Licensing (F1)" was given. This makes little sense to me, I included a license section on all of my files. A prior explanation would have been useful. Two of these files were flags, and one was a public domain map used on a variety of wikis. Another file, File:FC Bayern München logo (2017).svg, was restored following this deletion discussion. This all makes little sense to me. S.A. Julio (talk) 04:17, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jcb: can you, please, comment on this? IMO, most of the above does not even qualify for speedy nominations, not only for unilateral deletions without chance for uploader's respond. Some of them were already kept in various DRs as below TOO. The only exception is Gibraltar Football Association logo.svg that was missing valid license/copyright template. I   Support undeletion of the rest and DR nomination one-by-one if needed. Ankry (talk) 09:52, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Several were blatant copyright violations. Some may be borderline TOO, but several should stay deleted. And to the uploader: please refrain from uploading copyright violations in the future. Jcb (talk) 12:55, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jcb: Which ones? S.A. Julio (talk) 18:07, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Faroe Islands Football Association logo.svg: Vector version of File:Faroe Islands FA.png, which features a simple geometric shape, not meeting the threshold of originality (which had the {{PD-logo}} on the page)
  • Football Association of Finland logo.svg: Vector version of File:Logo palloliitto.png, same reason as above (some text above the rotated flag of Finland with a border)
  • Georgian Football Federation logo.svg: Vector version of File:Georgian Football Federation logo.png, same reason as above (very basic designing incorporating part of the flag of Georgia)
  • Gibraltar Football Association logo.svg: Vector version of File:Escudo Seleccion Gibraltar.png and File:Gib FA Logo FINAL RGB.jpg, this file is derived from and very similar to the coat of arms of Gibraltar, which is in the public domain, so it would seem valid for Commons. I added what I thought was proper licensing, if there was a mistake or correction needed, a talk page explanation or deletion discussion would've been appreciated rather than vague templates and a speedy deletion. If there is disagreement for its validity on Commons, it would beneficial to have a deletion discussion which could include the other two aforementioned files also.
  • 2020–21 UEFA Nations League map.svg: This was a simple map, which was no different than the licensing on File:2018–19 UEFA Nations League map.svg.
  • Green Bay Packers yellow wordmark.svg: Vector version of File:Green Bay Packers yellow wordmark.png, again simple geometric text which does not meet the threshold of originality.
  • Flag of Chinese Taipei (FIFA).svg: A flag featuring a simple design and text
  • Flag of the Collectivity of Saint Martin.svg: Another flag featuring a simple design
  • FC Bayern München logo (2017).svg: Kept via this discussion, and previous consensus at these discussions
Also, even if some of the files were to be problematic, surely it's not policy to 'nuke' all my other files? S.A. Julio (talk) 00:20, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
@S.A. Julio: {{Insignia}} is not a copyright-related template. Ankry (talk) 05:23, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
If I recall correctly this was accompanied by other licensing, though I cannot remember exactly. S.A. Julio (talk) 08:16, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jcb: A decission whether some borderline image is above or below TOO should not be taken without wider discussion. So only a DR is appropriate for this. Ankry (talk) 05:25, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: The licensing for the other Gibraltar logos seems questionable, and one has been nominated for deletion. Should all three files be discussed there (or separately)? S.A. Julio (talk) 08:16, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Per Yann's comment in the {{PD-Polish}} discussion on VPC, this may need to be undeleted. Abzeronow (talk) 17:24, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

  Info February 1994-published photo by a living photographer. Copyrighted in US 70pma. Free in Poland due to lack of formalities (missing copyright notice) that were required for photos till May 1994 by Polish copyright law. But probably copyrighted everywhere else in the world as Berne convention does not require the work to be copyrightable in country of origin. OTRS permission needed IMO unless we wish to respect country of origin copyright law only. Ankry (talk) 17:55, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
If it is PD in Poland and USA, this seems OK for us, isn't? And then it should be in the public domain in all countries which use the rule of shorter term. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:18, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
@Yann: It is clearly not PD in USA. 70pma applies to 1994-published works and the photographer is a living person. US copyright applies here directly due to Berne; URAA is irrelevant here. Ankry (talk) 08:10, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
OK, I misunderstood that, but the discussion on VPC talks about URAA only. And if the issue is not URAA, then {{PD-Polish}} is misleading. Back to square one... Can you explain what you mean by "due to Berne" please? Regards, Yann (talk) 08:48, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
US accepted the Berne convention concerning copyright law efective since 1.03.1989, so since that date US copyright applies to works originating from other Berne convention signing countries. URAA applies only to publications prior this date (except rare cases like works from countries which signed Berne later). In most cases even effectively only to pre-1978 works, as newer works are copyrighted pma70 in US.
I do not think {{PD-Polish}} is misleading; it clearly states that it applies only to works published before 1.3.1989 (2nd condition). But any suggestions how to make it more clear are welcome. Ankry (talk) 10:11, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose - Image was here in 2013, well before 2014 Commons upload date. Image at that site also more complete (uncropped curtains), so it could not have come from the Commons.

Estaré esperando una respuesta o bien, soluciones para poder recuperar estos archivos. Un saludo. --Manuelitoh (talk) 06:27, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

  Question What is the status of this request? Yann (talk) 07:17, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
  Comment Hola, @Manuelitoh:. Antes que nada agradecerte tus contribuciones. Veamos. En primer lugar si necesitas alguna de estas imágenes a título personal porque la hubieras perdido de tu disco duro podría intentar pasártela por correo, sin trámites adicionales. Dicho esto... antes de pensar en un OTRS (donde el propietario del copyright debe seguir los siguientes pasos: COM:OTRS (ojo, puede alargarse meses el proceso)) para que vuelvan a Commons hay que meditar si merece la pena.
1) Los logos cuando dices que son diseños hechos por ti, te estás refiriendo ¿a qué exactamente? a) ¿a que los diseñaste basándote en diseños del consorcio del Municipio de la Molina o del Consorcio RBC Matrix? b) ¿A que te contrataron estas corporaciones para diseñarlos? c) ¿A que los diseñaste ex novo, de cero completamente, y no han sido usado por nadie ahí fuera? En el primer caso serían obras derivadas y no se permitirían, en el segundo necesitaríamos OTRS y en el tercero es posible que estén fuera del scope del proyecto.
2) Respecto a las fotos de edificios. La de las instalaciones ATV Perú y, sobre todo, la del cuartel general parecen bastante interesantes. Dependiendo de si se hubieran regado por internet antes de publicarlas tú acá o después ...podría hacer falta OTRS... o no. ¿Las publicaste por primera vez aquí?
3) Respecto a las fotos de personas. Las fotos de las pompas y del quinceañero están ahí-ahí en cuanto al "scope" (parecen fotos bastante personales). Si para restaurarlas en Commons hiciera falta con ellas un OTRS por estar publicadas por "ahí fuera" antes que acá (como parece que pasa según cuentas al menos con la del jabón) ...no creo que merezca la pena.

@Avs2794: Who the photographer is/was? When and where the photo was published first time? Unpublished photos by unknown photographers are copyrighted in US 120 years since creation. This makes it PD in 1932+120+1 = 2053. In 34 years (unless you provide more info). Ankry (talk) 17:58, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
@Avs2794: According to this article this is a photo by American photographer, Richard Gordon Matzene (d. 1950). It should be PD in Nepal since 1958. It is also likely PD in US, but we need to know whether and where it was published before 1978 and whether its copyright are registered there. Otherwise, I tend to consider copyright expiring 70 pma, in 2021. Claiming that the uploader is the author is obviously blatant copyright violation. Ankry (talk) 07:22, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

This is a photo of me that I paid for. I own the photo, it came from my hard drive and has been uploaded to other websites using accounts that I own. This photo has never been owned by anyone other than Triston Line and it will remain owned by Triston Line as it has been paid for and is a portrait photo of me. The only exception to my ownership is to provide it to Wikimedia for my user page, this shouldn't require my intervention to keep it on my user page.

Kindly do not remove my personal photo that I am freely uploading to wikimedia, if there's a rule against me owning a photo of myself and giving Wikimedia permission to use it, then I will donate it to Wikimedia as an open copyright because I could really care less at this point.

  • @Tmanaok: On the page, you said both that it is your "own work" and that it is a "professional photograph", so you seem to have contradicted yourself.
  • You don't say what country you are in, but presuming you did not take the photo, in most countries the photographer would own the copyright unless and until it was explicitly transferred in writing. Possession of the physical photo is neither here nor there. Was this conveyed in writing? (If so, you can sort this out by sending a copy of the relevant document as explained at COM:OTRS.

File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 18.jpg

Reason(s) for requested undeletion:
1. This deleted image has higher resolution than other retained images of the work, extends a greater canvas area, reveals more details (see the lyre on left hand side which demonstrates all three of these points) and includes the frame of the painting as uniquely presented in the Adam Mickiewicz Museum in Vilnius where Adam Mickiewicz came to study for four years (1815-19, Vilnius University) and was later imprisoned prior to his exile to Russia.
2. The artist (Walenty Wankowicz), is now known to the uploader (Scotch Mist) as is the date of the original painting (1827-28, National Museum, Warsaw) of the famous Polish poet (1798-1855) and this and other relevant information can now be inserted. Portrait of Adam Mickiewicz on the Ayu-Dag Cliff representing the change in seasons was painted while Wankowicz was in St Petersburg where he had met up with his friend from Vilnius University while Mickiewicz was in exile.
3. Have learned a considerable amount through this whole (and quite frustrating) process and now understand that I should have uploaded the image of my photograph of the painting as 'Self-photographed' and should have used an ‘Artwork’ instead of an ‘Information’ template with a ‘PD Art|PD-old-100’ assignation, which of course I will correct should this file be undeleted. --SM1 (talk) 09:29, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Note: Reason given for deletion, “|source=Own work |author=Scotch Mist" even though it's obviously not own work. That is what got it tagged for no permissions, and on review we had a much better image, so no reason to keep it even if it was old enough to be retained. Ellin Beltz

@Scotch Mist: if the copy is contemporary then it is DW of the original work, but copyrighted. You need to prove that the copying artist died more that 70 years ago or that the copy was made available to the public more than 70 years ago (if the name of artist is not known). Otherwise, a written free license permission from the artist is needed in order to keep your photo. Only copies made using automated processes (photography, scanning) are not copyrighted. Ankry (talk) 05:20, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: This does not appear to be a derivative work as it does not “contain sufficient new, creative content to entitle it to its own copyright” (C:DW). The only discernible ‘creative content’ with regard to this image is enhancement arising from a combination of the museum lighting and ‘author processing’.
Do you mean your photo or contemporary painter work here? Both are DW: photo, because it is a photo (different technique used), and the painting because it is unlikely that the modern painter used exactly same paints and exactly same painting technique. Almost any painting work is copyrightable and almost any photo is copyrightable (rare exceptions in both cases). Ankry (talk) 08:04, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
Adam Mickiewicz rented a room (1822) on the ground floor of the building where the museum was established by 1899. Assuming that the painting on display is not an original by Walenty Wankowicz (1799-1842) but one of the many reproductions of his work created during the nineteenth century then even if it were to be assessed as ‘DW’ not only would the painting likely have been on display for more than 70 years but the ‘artist’ would likely have passed away more than 70 years ago (although it would seem unreasonable in the prevailing circumstances as outlined to have to provide proof, especially where no signature evident).
With the copyright of the original having expired more than 100 years ago (1842+70=1912) the image should be ‘un-deleted’. --SM1 (talk) 07:25, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
The key question here is: when this particular reproduction was initially presented to the public? What is the evidence that it is a XIX c. copy and not eg. 1960s copy? (exact or estimated date and rationale for estimation needed) Wankowicz's copyright is not a problem here. Ankry (talk) 08:04, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: The ‘author processing’ referenced my own photograph, which if as you suggest it itself is a ‘DW’ with its own copyright then I would have thought as the author I could freely upload images derived from the photograph (which was my original thinking before the image was tagged for deletion). If not, with all due respect, your interpretation of ‘DW’ appears to be at odds with the statement “all subsequent works based on another, previous work but lacking substantial new creative content are merely considered copies of that work and are entitled to no new copyright protection as a result and should not be referred to as "derivative works", as this has a very specific meaning in copyright law” (C:DW). However, even if the interpretation you have quoted were to be considered compelling in this particular instance, perhaps due to evidence of significantly different type of paint or painting technique, if these differences are not clearly evident in the image presented then surely the underlying copyright of the original painting must prevail if still valid. [Denying the photographer\author the right to freely publish the image in these circumstances does not seem reasonable, especially if the supporting argument relies on the suggestion that a possible reproduction featured as a centre-piece in a museum that has existed for more than a hundred years is in fact a recent reproduction (“1960’s copy") with no evidence, not even an artist’s signature or online attribution, to indicate the veracity of what seems to be an unlikely supposition.] --SM1 (talk) 15:25, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
As this is DW, you are not the only author. Other authors are Wankowicz, whose copyright expired, and anonymous copy painter. Anonymous works are copyrigted 70 years since initial publication. So what is the earliest known date for this copy to be presented to public? More than 70 years ago? Or less? Ankry (talk) 15:42, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: As I understand ‘C:DW’ anonymous works are only copyrighted as ‘DWs’ 70 years since initial publication if they have “substantial new creative content” (if this is not the case it would be appreciated if you could please quote the relevant text in Commons). However, should you still insist that the image is governed by the copyright of an anonymous copy painter (with no trace of creative input and substantially less in comparison to my own photograph\image), then given that there appears to be no evidence that this significant work (even if only a reproduction) was introduced to the museum after WWII then it appears logical to presume it must have been presented to the public more than 70 years ago (and probably more than 100 years ago when the museum was first opened). --SM1 (talk) 16:29, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
If we can assume that it has been there since the museum was opened, and it was opened more than 70 years ago, then   Support. Ankry (talk) 11:07, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Reposição de ficheiros de João Justiceiro

Mais uma vez (a quarta), estou solicitando a reposição das seguintes imagens, que são de minha autoria e foram excluídas por Jcb, que alegou "violação de direitos autorais":

Espero que agora não inventem de pedir a um administrador que fale o meu idioma (já que está todo mundo sem tempo) pra cuidar do caso ou ignorem como fizeram da última vez (se fizerem, volto a pedir). João Justiceiro (talk) 23:00, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

    • Translating (slightly loosely): Once again (the fourth time) I'm soliciting a restoration of the following images, which were of my authorship and were deleted by Jcb, who alleges a copyright violation. … I hope that now {not so sure of next phrase but something like} they do not invoke [the requirement to?] ask this of an administrator who speaks my language (given that noone has time) to take care of the case or to ignore this as they did last time (if they do, I'll ask again).
    For what it's worth: I can read Portugese moderately well, because it is not that distant from Spanish, but I can't write it and I am liable to miss subtleties. - Jmabel ! talk 04:03, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

    • I have checked few of them. Some have no EXIF, some were already published on various websites. However it is possible that the published images originated from Commons as the Commons ones were uploaded in 2015 (external publications are generally more recent). All images with EXIF made using the same mobile phone camera. While I would prefer OTRS here, I tend to   Weak support for undeletion of those with EXIF info per AGF.

  Oppose undeletion, propose speedy closure and propose sending a warning to the uploader.

  • I personally see no reason to doubt that. I agree with Strakhov about undeleting the images taken witht the Lumia 830; I see no reason not to extend that to any recent ones taken with a Moto G4. If that leaves anything out, we can take those up individually. - Jmabel ! talk 06:05, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

  Done restored all images made using Nokia Lumia and one made Motorola Moto as I also have no doubts concerning own work there. The two left are without EXIF and because of earlier uploader's unconcerned approach to copyright, we need either further explanation or OTRS for them (IMO). Ankry (talk) 08:31, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Posting this one again as a decision was made before I had a chance to comment on the question posed. As noted, the image is of the free open cloud interface. As for the question of what the Mathematica license is for open cloud, the answer is there is no license. Anyone can go online and use it for free: http://www.wolfram.com/development-platform/open-cloud-access/

You can certainly choose to upgrade to a paid license for special features, but the open cloud platform is free to use, no sign-in/registration required. The image didn't show any upgraded features. OrdinaryArtery (talk) 14:26, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

@OrdinaryArtery: "No license" means "reuse is not allowed". Explicit license is needed in order to restore the image. If software has no license it simply cannot be used. Ankry (talk) 16:47, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: The image was free use. I wasn't the person who uploaded the image in the first place, though. If necessary, I'll generate a new image. Similar to other images posted of the Wolfram platform, they are all licensed for use not only on Wikipedia, but anywhere. OrdinaryArtery (talk) 17:24, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
"Free use" is not OK for Commons. See COM:L for details. Explicite permission from Wolfram to utilize the image of their software commercially and/or for any purpose without permission as well as to create any derivative works is needed and a declaration that they will not revoke the permission in future. These are minimal requirements. Ankry (talk) 18:45, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry:@OrdinaryArtery:We have been asked to comment on this discussion. We can confirm that Wolfram Research, as copyright holders of the Mathematica and Wolfram Language interface, that we have no objections to the use of this specific image, in its entirety, within Wikipedia or elsewhere. Wolfram Corporate (talk) 12:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Anybody can create an arbitrary account and say that. Permission from anonymous Wikimedia user is irrelewant here. If permission is needed it is up to uploader to request it in a verifiable form (either on copyright owner's website or via email to OTRS). Ankry (talk) 13:23, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

@Mutter Erde: Do you intend to provide the required information about publication date/place? It seems that nobody will support your request if you do not. Ankry (talk) 08:43, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Why not? But I am only the uploader of this file, dated 1965. What about you show us the rest? Maybe someone finds the earliest publishing date. Mutter Erde (talk) 08:58, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
I have added some numbers, just to see where the problem(s) is/are. Case 3 must be a free file, I remember. Mutter Erde (talk) 11:27, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
#3 restored; the others seem still to be URAA-copyrighted at least. Ankry (talk) 10:58, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. What's the matter with Case 2? Do you doubt the first publishing date (1973)? Why? Anyway, the DR is simple nonsense [7]. Btw. It was the same requester as in Case 3. Mutter Erde (talk) 06:12, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
If the creation date was 1973, then 1973+25 > 1996, the URAA date. Unless there is evidence that the photo is PD in USA, I do not support undeletion. But I do not oppose, if another admin supports it. Ankry (talk) 17:24, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello, my name is Vladimir. I am an assistant of Arman Davletyarov. At his request, I change the information on his personal page (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%94%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%BB%D0%B5%D1%82%D1%8F%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B2,_%D0%90%D1%80%D0%BC%D0%B0%D0%BD_%D0%98%D0%BB%D1%8E%D0%B1%D0%B0%D0%B5%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%87) under the Assist937 account. Previously, at the request of my manager, I changed his personal information as it was not reliable and I also replaced the old photo with a new one. But, the system, or perhaps your bot has blocked this photo and referred to the fact that I am violating copyright (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%D0%94%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%BB%D0%B5%D1%82%D1%8F%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B2_%D0%90%D1%80%D0%BC%D0%B0%D0%BD.jpg) Please tell me how can I return this photo in order not to violate copyrights? What should be done? I myself work on the Muz-TV channel and received this photo from our press service. We work at events at the photographers who work under the contract and after all the events they pass all the photos with copyright to our press service. I even found the author of this photo (https://vk.com/palshkov) Nikita Palshkov. He is in touch with us and is ready, if necessary, to sign all the necessary documents and grant the right to publish this photo to you. Only I have one question, what should I do? What documents to sign? What to send and where to send. This is my first experience, and I do not know how to do it. I would be grateful for your help in my situation. I’m looking forward to your reply. Best regards, Vladimir

@Assist937: Hi,
The copyright holder has to send a formal written permission. Please see COM:OTRS for the instructions. If the copyright holder is an organisation, the permission must come from someone entitled to release it (legal department, etc.). Or the image should be published with a free license on the organisation website. This would also be faster, as there is a big backlog in OTRS. Regards, Yann (обсуждение) 10:33, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

If not, Sebastian probably may have to explain how he acquired copyright on the photograph.

I see a potential copyright problem here: The ticket is from 2017 while the photo seems to be from 2019. AFAIK, generally, copyright law disallows granting a license in advance, eg. licensing a work that did not exist while the license was established. So pinging the OTRS agent who added the ticket to {{GoO-donation/en}} @NahidSultan: please help us resolve this; we cannot allow adding arbitrary tickets to arbitrary works. Either this template was intended to be used only for pre- Sep 2017 works, or we need precise information what the ticket is valid for. Ankry (talk) 07:52, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Facundo Aguilar

Además de que todas las fotografías subidas pertenecen a mi propio archivo, el copyright de estas ya ha expirado en la República Argentina (Ley 11.723, Artículo 34).

En el caso de los logos, estas son recreaciones hechas por mí, basadas en los originales. Han sido incluso subidos a mi propia página (http://aguilar.net.ar).

Solicito urgentemente la restauración de la totalidad de los archivos, ya que son indispensables a modo de ilustración de los respectivos artículos en el Wikipedia en español.

--Facundo Aguilar (talk) 17:25, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

@Facundo Aguilar: The images were deleted as you declared that you are the author (photographer for photos, designer for logos) and exclusive copyright holder, which is doubtful. And please, do not mix images with different copyright status in a single UDR request. Claiming copyright for PD media is against rules as well as claiming authorship to sb else's work. Note, that if some of the above are PD, they need proper information about publication date and country and proper copyright template.
Concerning logos: copyrighted logos that are "own work" are out of scope. If their copyright expired, we need evidence for that. If they are copyrighted by an organization, a written free license permission from their authorized representative is needed. See also COM:DW concerning logos "similar" to original. Fair use logos cannot be stored in Wikimedia Commons regardless of their expected use. Ankry (talk) 18:23, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: Me temo que no comprendo... ¿qué es lo "dudoso"? Por favor, díganme cual sería la supuesta documentación y/o información necesaria para corroborar que soy el propietario de todas las fotos que he subido para la restauración de estas. Ninguna de estas imágenes se encontraban en Internet, no las saqué de ningún sitio.
La evidencia de que el copyright expiró es la propia información aportada por mí y las referencias de los artículos en Wikipedia; todas las fotos pertenecen a contenidos de la televisión y cine argentino del siglo pasado, y de los cuales ya han pasado más de 25 años, por lo cual el copyright ya ha expirado. Si no fuera el caso, la totalidad de estas pertenecen a mi archivo privado, las cuales yo accedí a subir a Commons para el dominio público.
Es posible que la información con respecto a la autoría no haya sido ingresada por mí correctamente, pues en las fechas que subí las fotos no tenía mucho conocimiento con respecto a la subida de archivos, y aunque aún no lo tengo, en todas las fotos aclaré el año de creación de las imágenes. No entiendo como mi desconocimiento del funcionamiento de Wikimedia, pone en duda mi titularidad sobre los derechos de autor.
  1. Possibility to use {{own}} on uploaded images per COM:AGF is limitted to users who provide correct and complete information concerning copyright status of their uploads. Other users are often requested to follow COM:OTRS to prove their copyright.
  2. Providing false copyright information makes automatically other information provided by this user unreliable; they require clear proof.
  3. Claiming to be author of this image means that you are the the TV camera operator. Claiming also copyright to it means that copyright did not expire and that you are TV producer. Both are doubtful.
  4. None of the images contains information that they were published in Argentina; our rules require for images to be free in originating country (the country, where it was published initially) and US.
  5. Argentinian copyright states that photos published in Argentina are PD 25 years after creation and 20 years after initial publication. Evidence of both is required in {{PD-AR-Photo}}; it is unclear if this rule applies to TV video media: they may be considered copyrighted 50 years since the death of last contributor, or general 70 years rule may apply as well. Anything not clearly described in available copyright templates should be discussed first in COM:VPC with wider community prior to requesting undeletion here.
  6. Per COM:DW if the photo is a screenshot from a video, copyright of the video applies to the photo.
  7. If a work was published with no license (like here), it cannot be used in Commons unless a clear proof of its PD status (or free license) is proven. Fair use is not allowed in Commons
  8. Claiming copyright (attempting to declare a CC "own" license is claiming copyright) to a PD work is considered illegal in some jurisdictions.
  9. Logos declared as {{own}} are almost always either out of scope (if created from scratch and unused in real world) or copyright violations (logos used by notable organizations/companies/etc. are generally copyrighted by them and claiming personal copyright on their copies is in most cases violation of corporate copyright). So this is also doubtful.

File:SuYuChang Profile.jpg

This file had been uploaded to Commons in 2011, from a website known to me, without asking for my permission. I did not have a problem because the picture was circulating on the web among acquaintances and colleagues. No objection at all. I took the picture in Venezuela in 1997 and made it available to said colleagues in martial arts schools associated with Su Yu-chang. I understand it has been deleted due to the lack of a licence. The licence should be set to CC0, as there are certainly “No Rights Reserved” whatsoever. I hope this is sufficient and that the picture can be undeleted, but anyway I could supply a better resolution image too, or alternative images. Thanks! Desde la Torre (talk) 01:57, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

@Desde la Torre: If an image is not uploader's authorship or it was published elsewhere prior to upload to Commons, our rules required (since 2007) that either OTRS permission is send or an evidence of permission at the original site is linked from the image description page. If an uploader fails to fulfil this requirement, the image may be deleted as copyright violation (at once or in 20 years; we are a volunteer operated service and nobody grants that an image is verified "at once"). If in doubts, it is good way to ask for the license verification by an authorized user using {{License review}} template. If there was any evidence of the license declaration on this or another website at the upload time and it is archived by IA or another web archive, it should be OK. Otherwise, the OTRS permission is still needed: COM:GOF does not apply here. Ankry (talk) 06:20, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

File:Alberto López Asenjo 2019.jpg

Hello.

You said that the file Alberto López Asenjo 2019.jpg is a copyright violation for the following reason: https://www.lavozdeasturias.es/noticia/gijon/2019/02/15/lopez-asenjo/00031550215758742995610.htm

This is not true. There is no possible copyright violation by lavozdeasturias.es, because the photo has been taken by us. This newspaper (lavozdeasturias.es) has used our photography with our permission.

You can see in the original source (https://www.lopezasenjo.es/) that the photo has been taken by us, and also the photo is used in the official site of Alberto López Asenjo and in all of the official Social Acounts. I am writing you in the name of Alberto López Asenjo, the propietary of the photo, that let us use the photo with NO copyright limits, also for wikimedia.

Please tell me if you need more arguments/proofs to admit the photograph.
