Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. That's a completely non sequitur argument. Do you have any evidence to show that the legitimate copyright holder has approved publication under a license that allows anyone to use, modify and redistribute the picture for any purpose, including commercial purposes? And even if the copyright holder did agree to publication under a free license (which I doubt they did), I'm sure they didn't agree to let you claim that you personally created the picture and that you are the copyright holder.

(File:The Photo Of David Zhao.jpg)

Hello, I have sent the permission be e-mail the same day I uploaded the photo. I didn't hear any answer from them so I have send another message regarding the case and, again, there was no answer. I know there are volunteers working there, but this is getting ridiculous. If the permission was not sufficient, somebody should inform me about it and I would try to solve it.

File:"Dr. Seuss's Weathervane" by David Smith.jpg

The following image files (below) were deleted. They are MY images and are released on my website under the CC BY-SA 4.0 License, as I discussed here yesterday with Wiki Editor, Huon, who posted the first image to the Tesla Science Center article. The Tesla Lightning Rod image was of a piece I made for the Tesla Science Center and it was commissioned by Jane Alcorn, Director, who is mentioned in the article. "The Wind Laughed at the Sound" was also deleted and it was featured on the TV show Texas Country Reporter/Phillips Productions.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are four problems here.
First, in the file description, you claimed that you were the photographer (that the image was your own work). It is clear from your comment above that is not correct, so we need to know the actual photographer.
Second, you say that the subject of the image gave it to you. He is not the photographer either. It is, therefore, unlikely that he has the right to freely license the image. That right almost certainly belongs to the photographer.
Third, you say "He gave me full consent to use that picture in craeting a wikipedia profile for him...". Permission for use on WP is not sufficient. Both Commons and Wikipedia require a free license to use the image anywhere for any purpose, including commercial use and derivative works.
Fourth, the article on the subject has been deleted from WP:EN. Unless you can show that he is notable, Commons will not host the image.
In order to have the image restored, you must first establish that the person is notable by having the article reinstated at WP:EN. Then, have the actual copyright holder, almost certainly the photographer, send a free license directly to OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:17, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

File:Dzisna, Barysaŭ kamień. Дзісна, Барысаў камень (1882).jpg, File:Barysavy kamiani. Барысавы камяні (1890).jpg

The reason for deletion of these files is not true. Both of them aren't scaled-down duplicates of File:Book illustrations of Dvina or Boris stones - t.05.png and File:Book illustrations of Dvina or Boris stones - t.06.png respectively. Actually they had the same resolution. And initially they even had better resolution and were uploaded from other sources (not from "Сапунов А. П. Двинские или Борисовы камни. — Витебск: Тип. Витебского Губернского Правления, 1890 — таб. 06. — 31 с."). Moreover, because of using .jpg format instead of redundant .png they have the same quality and resolution with much less file size. I believe we should use the server space rationally. So if there is a need to delete some images it should be redundant File:Book illustrations of Dvina or Boris stones - t.05.png and File:Book illustrations of Dvina or Boris stones - t.06.png. --Kazimier Lachnovič (talk) 19:29, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

In addition in my opinion such practice (uploading redundant file from the same source [1], [2] and then adding incorrect speedy deletion request [3]) have to be stopped. --Kazimier Lachnovič (talk) 20:04, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Putting the two versions side by side, it is hard to choose between them. However, as a matter of policy, Commons prefers PNG over JPG for all images other than those originally created as JPG:
"If you have a choice of file formats in which to save a graphic, scan, or other such thing, save it as PNG..." (Commons:File_types#JPEG).
Therefore, the PNGs should be kept and the deletion of the JPGs was appropriate. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me)
No, but that same guideline does mention that JPG thumbnails are often better (and I think more performant to make), so having copies of both is not the worst idea. That is why we have {{JPEG version of PNG}} and related templates. Deletion does not save any disk space. So... particularly when the contributor wants it undeleted, I Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. It doesn't hurt anything. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:02, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
For me this case looks like the following: "However, if the original file is in JPEG, it generally makes no sense to convert it to PNG: converting a lossy compression into a “lossless” format doesn't buy you anything since the “loss” already occurred in the original, and doing so will only increase the file size (any edits, however, should probably be saved as PNG as well as JPEG". The proof of my opinion is that there is no difference in quality between images. --Kazimier Lachnovič (talk) 14:35, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Kazimier Lachnovič. From a technical point of view, saving a lossy image (jpg) into a lossless container does not make the resulting image lossless. -FASTILY 00:16, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

File:SignalFlagUniform-USNSpec.svg

Reason: It was deleted as a duplicate of File:ICS Uniform.svg. However, I specifically made a series of files based on some US Navy specs that I found, not necessarily the ICS ones (there are some minor differences in many of the flags) and now this one in particular is missing from the categories it used to belong to. It looks like someone copied my version over on top of File:ICS Uniform.svg then marked mine as a duplicate. There really is no reason at all to do that with SVGs; just use the one which you prefer. They previously were different SVGs and we might as well keep both. So... I would prefer mine be undeleted, keeping its original description and categories, and if it is the same as the last File:ICS Uniform.svg revision then that should be reverted.

According to the Copyright Act of Republic of China (2014) Article 58:

"Artistic works or architectural works displayed on a long-term basis on streets, in parks, on outside walls of buildings, or other outdoor locales open to the public, may be exploited by any means except under the following circumstances:

1.Reproduction of a building by construction of another building. 2.Reproduction of a work of sculpture by production of another sculpture. 3.Reproduction for the purpose of long-term public display in locales specified in this article. 4.Reproduction of artistic works solely for the purpose of selling copies."

Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan is a Building or a work of sculpture, not artistic works, so Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan can be exploited by any means except building or sculpturing another Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan.

So, the photos of Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan should not be deleted, they can be used in wikipedia or made into postcard. These actions doesn't violate sculptor's copyright by the Copyright Act of Republic of China (2014) Article 58.

These photos of Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan also shouldn't be deleted :

Excuse me, but Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan in fact is a building with six floors , people can invite inside and see the sculptures about the story of Buddha from 2nd floor. The Bureau of Cultural Heritage, Ministry of Culture, Republic of China also says it is a historic building(歷史建築). Due to Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Taiwan_.28Republic_of_China.29 says ✓OK for buildings , the building named Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan is ok too. So, I consider these photos shouldn't be deleted.--祥龍 (talk) 16:14, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
  • This is similar to the Tower of the Sun situation in Japan, where it was decided that the pictures should be deleted. The ROC FOP provisions essentially seem to be identical to the Japanese ones. Taiwan was a Japanese colony for a long time, so maybe the ROC decided to keep various old Japanese laws for simplicity and only made minor modifications where necessary.
See Article 5 for the things protected by copyright. Artworks (美術著作) and buildings (建築著作) are listed on different lines. I interpret it to mean that 'buildings' within the meaning of Article 5 are fine whereas 'artworks' within the meaning of Article 5 aren't fine. This statue seems to be both an artwork and a building. Since Article 58 (FOP) specifically says that artwork aren't fine (instead of saying that buildings are fine), I interpret this to mean that things which are both an artwork and a building aren't fine.
For this reason, I Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose undeletion. --Stefan4 (talk) 21:10, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Excuse me, according to the Copyright Act of Republic of China (2014) Article 5:
"For the purposes of this act, "works" shall include the following:

1.Oral and literary works. 2.Musical works. 3.Dramatic and choreographic works. 4.Artistic works. 5.Photographic works. 6.Pictorial and graphical works. 7.Audiovisual works. 8.Sound recordings. 9.Architectural works. 10.Computer programs. The examples and content of each category of works set forth in the preceding paragraph shall be prescribed by the competent authorit"

In current version, the buildings (architectural works) is different from artistic works. And by the legal interpretation about similar issue from Intellectual Property Office, Ministry of Economic Affairs, R.O.C, the photo of ( outside walls of ) Taipei 101 can be made into postcards for selling freely due to Copyright Act of Republic of China (2014) Article 58 point 1, and it's not concerned with Article 58 point 4. So Stefan4, your statement is not correct now, but maybe correct before the version of 1992.--祥龍 (talk) 21:46, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
This seems to say that buildings, or specifically Taipei 101, may be photographed freely, or at least the outer walls. The page also notes that the name 'Taipei 101' is {{Trademarked}}, which is not something that we care about on Commons. The problem is that certain buildings fall into multiple categories in Article 5 of the copyright law. Compare with a comic book which may fall into both the category '語文著作' and the category '美術著作'. In this case, the statue would seem to fall into both the category '美術著作' and the category '建築著作'. The page you linked to does not consider this situation and it doesn't seem to be possible to make any conclusions about it from that page. Article 58 suggests that as soon as something falls into the category '美術著作', then it is not OK, even if the work also falls in other categories such as '建築著作'. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:16, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
I read the book named "著作權法逐條釋義", it says that by the legislative purposes the "Reproduction of artistic works" at Article 58 point 4 means making the same object, or slavish copying, without reproduction with creativity. The example in the book is the sculpture made by Ju Ming, displayed at park. If you taking the photos or drawing the pictures about the sculpture, due to those photos and pictures aren't slavish copies but works with creativity, they aren't "Reproduction of artistic works" at Article 58 point 4.
And according the book named "圖解著作權法", those photos of Great Buddha Statue of Baguashan may be able to claim they have become photographic works, because they aren't slavish copies but works with creativity of the photographers.--祥龍 (talk) 01:33, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

If it hasn't been published, I'm not sure that OTRS is necessary. That is usually just if there is a solid possibility that it could have been copied from another source. The "heirs" template would make it more specific but I doubt most uploaders know about that one. Looking at the thumbnails on the Google cache, I guess it does have a bit of the "look" of a publicity photo, but there basically seems to be about zero hits on Google for it or anything remotely like it, so it really does feel like a private photo.

Perhaps I misunderstand. I assume that mynewsdesk found the image somewhere on the Web and put it on its site with the CC license. If that is the case, then my objection is correct. If, on the other hand, mynewsdesk operates like Flickr, then a third party placed the image and the license on the mynewsdesk site. If that third party was in fact, Sony, then the license is OK. However, that remains to be proven -- as we well know from our Flickr experience, it is common for people to post images under false names and with false license. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:35, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
Jameslwoodward, I think you should look more in to what mynewsdesk actually is before making these assumptions. Mynewsdesk is a website where companies, like Sony Entertainment, can post press releases and so on, as well as photos from their own possession. The companies themselves choose the license of the photo. For example, you can see on this photo, posted by Universal Music, which is published with no sort of CC-license, but with an "All rights reserved" marking, that every company chooses how to license their photos. DaftClub (talk) 21:09, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
Before you make broad criticisms such as the one above, please remember that Commons gets more than 10,000 new images every day. About 1,500 of those are deleted for various reasons. 15 Admins do 90% of that work. There are billions of web sites and I have never seen mynewsdesk before. I certainly do not have time to study the operation of a site that I may never see again. I did say above that I might have misunderstood the operations of mynewsdesk and you enlightened me. However, you still have not offered any evidence that person or entity that posted the subject image is actually Sony -- all we know is that it claims to be Sony.
I note that you have uploaded a variety of images from mynewsdesk -- the same problem applies to all of them. I also note that none of those that I looked at have been license reviewed. That is an essential part of the process of uploading third party images from sites such as Flickr and, apparently, mynewsdesk. I strongly suggest that you add the template {{LicenseReview}} to all of your existing and future uploads from such sites. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:12, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
  • There is a general problem with images from Mynewsdesk: many seem to have been uploaded by company employees who do not know that the images will be listed as 'licensed' and who do not have the right to license the images in the first place. Numerous images have been deleted from Commons for this reason, sometimes because of conflicting information in the EXIF. A problem with Mynewsdesk's default configuration, I believe. --Stefan4 (talk) 23:13, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

It seems like File:Pahonia.svg was also deleted; looking at the Google cache, that was a self-made work. Why was it deleted in the first place? Was it derivative of a specific bitmap representation? As per Commons:Coats of arms, the copyright attaches to each representation, not the general design, so there shouldn't be any mass deletions of multiple representations based on the age of the general design (which doesn't have much copyright relevance). It's possible that photos or bitmaps lifted from websites could be a problem. However... there is {{PD-BY-exempt}} which gives those symbols special status, and furthermore the titles of some of the images indicate they were taken in Warsaw, so COM:FOP#Poland would seem to apply if they were outside (I can't see them). The deletion summary confuses me -- it says FoP would apply but the logos are not de minimis. That doesn't make sense... de minimis use is always OK (FOP or no FOP); for "OK" FOP countries however use which is not de minimis is also OK (that is the primary reason for the FOP distinction). I can't see the images so I'm not completely sure, but it sounds like the deletions were a mix of misunderstanding of the copyright of a COA (it's the particular representation, not all representations) and a misunderstanding of FOP.

File:US flag 15 stars.svg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: This SVG (or versions of it) had been around for a long time. At some point, I uploaded File:StarSpangledBannerFlag.svg, which was an SVG representation of a very specific individual flag (not a generic 15-star flag). At some point later, someone copied the star-spangled banner version on top of File:US flag 15 stars.svg and nominated my upload for deletion as a duplicate, which happened. I asked the deleting admin to undelete mine, which he/she kindly did. However, the File:US flag 15 stars.svg file was then turned into a redirect to my file. I think it should be undeleted, with the last, copied revision removed, since the previous versions were all legitimate SVG versions of a generic 15-star flag. There is no reason to overwrite one SVG with another; we should have both available. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:26, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Sounds and looks reasonable, though... a bit convolved.

No, not what I meant, sorry -- File:StarSpangledBannerFlag.svg as it stands is perfectly fine. Yes, there was a separate file uploaded over it once, though I reverted it, as it was not the dimensions specified in my description. That file could certainly be uploaded under a different name. What I am asking to undelete is the original File:US flag 15 stars.svg, which is currently a redirect, but which once had its own completely different content before being overwritten then deleted as a duplicate.

File:Blender.svg

I'm not sure which file was meant, but high probably the file was the icon like this w:de:File:Blender.svg (and the first version of w:File:Blender.svg) then it's free, as you can see on http://www.blender.org/about/logo/ under Desktop icon → Freedesktop – SVG. The Tango styled icon is created by "Jakub Steiner" (Tango artist), the license is there clear given as CC-by-sa/3.0/ (file metadata) and the old files (on DE and EN) had GPL/2.0/!? I mean the commercial restriction is only because it is a logo:

4. The logo is used unaltered, without fancy enhancements, in original colors, original typography, and always complete (logo + text blender).
So probably the desktop icon is here not concrete meant?
5. In case you use the logo on products you sell commercially, you always have to contact us with a picture of how it will be used, and ask for explicit permission.
So commercial use is possible, there are logos on Commons which are more restricted. Probably as {{Trademarked}}?
User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  10:21, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Hmm. That page also is pretty explicit about the copyright: The Blender logo is a copyrighted property of NaN Holding B.V, and has been licensed in 2002 to the Blender Foundation. The logo and the brand name “Blender” are not part of the GNU GPL, and can only be used commercially by the Blender Foundation on products, websites and publications. So it would seem they are claiming copyright as some of the basis of those restrictions, not just trademark. It also seems like the copyright is owned by another entity so the copyright license might have to come from that other entity. The "freedesktop" SVG does have a by-sa-3.0 license in it though, but I wonder if that was just any additional expression added. I can see where the uncertainty comes from. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:32, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

License by Blender Desktop icon

Hello Blender Foundation,

I've a little question about the logo and the desktop icon: http://www.blender.org/about/logo/ 
The icon there (under Desktop icon → Freedesktop – SVG.) does have a by-sa-3.0 license in it though!?
So is it allowed to upload it under Wikimedia Commons with CC BY-SA 3.0: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ or not?

Is this a possible text to send?User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  17:42, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

The main issue is that the Blender Foundation does not own the rights to the logo -- they are merely a licensee and cannot grant licenses. It is a different foundation which actually owns the rights. The freedesktop icon looks like it was done by a third party, who were in the habit of freely licensing their works, and may not have considered the derivative work aspect when they made the file. In that case their license is just for any extra expression added. To me, that is the most likely situation. Asking would not hurt though, as it would at least bring the issue to their attention. Maybe ask "One of the icons there (under Desktop icon → Freedesktop – SVG.) has a by-sa-3.0 license inside of it, which seems to be at odds with the copyright claim on the page. Is that file truly under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/) or is it still restricted as a derivative work?" Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:01, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

The Creative Commons allows to license out files that have logos - which have trademark/copyright protection outside of the realm of the CC areas.

Also Mozilla offers a svg of their logo as CC-BY:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/licensing/website-content/

I don't see this as a conflict? I might be mistaken though, but then you better seek advise at the CC website or a board there.

My take: the CC-BY for our logo means that you can use it freely, but while respecting the trademark.

-Ton-

What that means for us?User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  18:08, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

It does happen that logos have a free copyright license but are fully restricted by trademark. We can host those. If that is the case here, then fine. But you can't say it has "trademark/copyright protection outside of the realm of the CC areas". You can say that for trademark, but not copyright. There is no copyright protection outside the realm of CC areas. So unfortunately, that is a little ambiguous, though it does sound as though he really may have just meant "trademark", which would be OK. However, the other text on the page explicitly mentions copyright protection (as well as trademark) to prohibit commercial uses. If they just meant trademark there as well, it is also OK. But if they really did mean copyright, then it's an issue. The copyright owner sounds like it is NaN Holding B.V., so they would be the best ones to ask. Since that situation dates from 2002, before CC licenses really were widespread and before the concept of having a free copyright license on a logo while retaining the trademark existed either, it's certainly possible that a free copyright license is the desired situation today but it has just not been made explicit. I just don't know who added that license to the SVG -- if that was a third party, then it may not be all that relevant. I probably won't argue much either way however this gets decided -- they admittedly are distributing it on the blender.org site with that license, which is something of an indication that it is OK, though it's also possible that is an inadvertent mistake. But, it's also possible that the mistake means it is licensed that way even if they did not want it -- if someone puts an image on Flickr and marks it CC-By accidentally and it stays that way for years, they probably may not have much recourse if someone uses it under that license.

So it means that, can not be possibly taken in 2012 as that guy said it is. And certainly not "own work" (unless he worked for Ay yapim and mistaken 2012 for 2008! But even then, the picture should remain the property of "Ay yapim" the production company). Infact, Hazal Kaya was a bit overweight in 2012 and out country (Macedonia) for her then new project (Son Yaz - Balkanlar 1912(2012). Meaning, that she couldn't have looked as thin as she did in that picture from 2008 (you can search the web for 2012 pics of Hazal Kaya) and see it yourself. As for the other picture, uploaded by Vkrainka from Ukrain is indeed taken in 2013 (at least correct year!), but is a screenshot of "ask tv series" made by Gold yapim (a scene from episode 3 or 4) possibly downloaded from pintrest.com > https://www.pinterest.com/pin/434175220297492868/ you can check that too. Notified Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard about the ==Hazal Kaya.jpg OTRS permission== > uploaded by SuhailAzaz from Pakistan that has a OTRS ticket is in copyright violations. uploaded picture isn't "own work," and not had been taken in 2012.

In short, picture taken in 2008 not 2012, and remains the property of "Ay yapim" the production company.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support "I'm allow to use the file, upload it to Wikipedia" is not sufficient -- both Commons and WP:EN require a license that allows use by anyone anywhere for any purpose, including commercial use.

Hmm. I don't feel strongly about it, but the font here is a very plain bold sans-serif font without any special features.

I don't think the text or the font can get a copyright, but what about the background? Regards, Yann (talk) 14:35, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
If it's a standard font, then the logo itself shouldn't get any protection. The ones the UK ruled copyrightable were where the logo designer made some custom alterations to the letters. And while fonts can be copyrighted there, I'm not sure the *use* of the fonts in say a logo are deemed a derivative work. Only if you are creating a competing font, mostly. I can't see the image so I'm not sure either way, but if text in a standard font, the only chance at copyrightability would be the background (if any). Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:54, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
How about restoring it so the file can have a proper DR? Natuur12 (talk) 18:05, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi,

There seems to be some mistake in deleting this image and classifying it as copyright violation. The image belongs to me and is also a part of my photostream on flickr.com. If you believe it is copyright violation, I request you to kindly prove that the image does not belong to me and that is belongs to someone else. Mere hunches are not good enough. If it cannot be sufficiently established that the image is someone else's, please restore the file.

First, the image is All Rights Reserved at Flickr, so policy requires that, as Yann says, either you change the license at Flickr or send a free license to OTRS. This is because we have no way of knowing that User:Raveesh212 here is the same person as Flickr user "Raveesh Vyas".
Second, your comment above,
"I request you to kindly prove that the image does not belong to me and that is belongs to someone else. Mere hunches are not good enough. If it cannot be sufficiently established that the image is someone else's, please restore the file."
is backwards. The burden of proof is on the uploader to prove beyond a significant doubt that the image is legitimately uploaded to Commons. Please keep that in mind in the future.

Nature reserve categories

Please undelete the following categories:

These categories were created as part of a coherent and complete system of categories for all the nature reserves in Baden-Württemberg. Category pages usually included local categories (municipalities), templates with WDPA identification numbers of protected areas, as well as external links to a map service that allows to identify the location of pictures. So, even if there were no files in these categories, other than claimed during the deletion, they were not really "empty". Many more of these formerly "empty" categories were filled with images during the past WLE campaigns by photographers who were actively trying to fill the gaps. Also, I'm quite sure that for some of these categories there do exist files already that simply need to be attributed to the nature reserves. At de.wp, there is a complete system of lists of nature reserves for Baden-Württemberg that include all the links to the corresponding commonscats; eg. de:Liste der Naturschutzgebiete im Landkreis Tübingen. By deleting the categories, a very active project gets sabotaged that combines the features of de.WP and Commons. --Sitacuisses (talk) 04:27, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm not too sure what wikiversity's scope is, but if it's within their scope, then it's within ours. We don't try to dictate scope to other projects. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:00, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

"the text on Wikia communities" does not seem to cover images. Further down in the terms of use, it says "Non-text media on Wikia should not be assumed to be available under the same license as the text.". This makes the license situation at least unclear. --rimshottalk 19:34, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

File:(de)Map-South Africa.svg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: This file was deleted with the rationale "no educational purpose". Actually this kind of travel maps are the basic maps in all wikivoyage projects and helps to illustrate or localize a region and the POIs of that region. This in particular would be useful in these articles.

If the deletion was correct, so thousands maps in Category:Travel maps should be deleted too. Thank you very much. -- Nastoshka (talk) 18:31, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm guessing it was copied over from http://wikitravel.org/shared/File:(de)Map-South_Africa.svg for use on wikivoyage. Looks to be a German version of File:Map-South Africa.svg which was copied over. The name isn't great -- it is a detail section of South Africa, not the whole country -- but that is not a deletion reason. While it may not be obvious at first glance, the note that it was copied over from Wikitravel should be enough. Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:50, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Actually, the map might contain all of South Africa -- but a weird setting in the SVG may limit the display to a small area. It looks like the English version is the source of images like File:Map-South Africa-Gauteng01.png which are in use (or were), so presumably there are (or were) German versions of the same. It would be nice to fix the SVG so it renders better but "no educational purpose" is way way wrong. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:22, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

File:Southern Tibet 29to32N 84to89E Topo Rainbow Zebra 918.jpg

This file was deleted because I did not provide the source and author when uploading the file. [I now provide the source which is http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/dem3.html]. The author is Jonathan de Ferranti. Also, this file initially had the wrong license. The correct license is PD-USGov-NASA. Rainbow Zebra 13 (talk) 23:50, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

If it was self-drawn based on raw data, then yes that sounds correct. If the image was purely automated from the data, there may not be any human expression, in which case it would be PD-ineligible. If there was some, it should be whatever free license the user upload had. Either way, it sounds like the nomination reason suspected the entire map was simply copied from elsewhere and deleted under suspicion it was not self-made, so if that was not the case, then it should be undeleted. I'd probably just use whatever free license the uploader chose for their work -- PD-ineligible can vary greatly around the world so an explicit CC license could still help in some places even if PD-ineligible is true in others.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The background certainly has a copyright, but, also, we have a tendency to forget here that "only contains text" is backwards -- the only copyright mentioned in the US constitution is that for text -- everything else came later.

File:La festa dei Fallas a Valencia.webm

There already was a discussion about this file here but the closing was wrong since this is obviouly not a case for the OTRS-team. What has changed since the closing is that the responsable of the LUCE confirmed that the file was anonymously made in the 1920's. This is archived under ticket:2015040910008084. Pinging all participats: @Jameslwoodward:, @Discasto:, @Blackcat:, @Stefan4:, @Coentor:, @Lucas:. I have no particular opinion about this file but I opened this request because of the OTRS-ticket. Natuur12 (talk) 21:35, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Thanks Natuur12. The LUCE newsreel was made by the own LUCE team in their studios, as the responsable of LUCE said, the film was published in 1930 and the images were taken, in the latermost date possible, the 19th march of 1928 because this work is represented in the film. PD-Old.--Coentor (talk) 21:46, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Very weak support I'm barely OK with restoration -- we think the film was first shown in Italy, not Spain, but we're not sure. We think the works pictured are covered by Spanish FOP, but, of course, if one of the creators of the works sued in Italy for copyright infringement, then Italian FOP would apply and the creator would win -- this is, admittedly, so unlikely as to be ridiculous, but it violates PRP. We think that the Italian "anonymous work" provisions apply even though there may well be a record of the photographer, director, etc. somewhere and all of them would have to be dead for 70 years if the "anonymous work" provision does not apply.
That's three areas where we think but don't know for sure, but, by stretching PRP a long way, as I said, I'm barely OK with it. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:03, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

This file has been deleted on the grounds of Copyright violation. The file can be seen here. As far as I understand, it's made of simple geometric shapes and text. Of course that it can be argued whether the flower-like shape at the top (made of a combination of simple geometric shapes) is simple enough or not, but I think it should be determined by community consensus (that is, through a regular DR) and not as a discretionary admin decision (I'm not criticizing @INeverCry:, but asking for a third-party opinion).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose With limited exceptions which are not applicable here, all created works have a copyright until it expires, usually 70 years after the death of the creator. The subject very rarely owns the copyright -- it is almost always retained by the creator (the photographer in this case). Transfer of copyright requires a separate formal written agreement. It is therefore unlikely that the subject of the image actually has the right to freely license the image.

Derivative works are part of the economic right, completely separate from moral rights. Moral rights makes certain kinds of derivative works illegal (ones which may affect reputation), but it's hardly all of them. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:12, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
The concept 'derivative work' is just the United States implementation of moral rights, and seems less restrictive in most aspects. The United States concept 'derivative work' seems to imply that the modifications must constitute a 'work', i.e. that some creativity must be used in the modifications, whereas the implementation in other countries also may restrict other modifications. For example, the Swedish implementation of modification restrictions (known as 'moral rights') restricts TV stations from showing commercials in the middle of a TV programme without permission from the author of the TV programme, but there is no creativity in showing commercials, so I'd assume that the United States implementation of modification restrictions (known as 'derivative works') allow TV stations to show commercials in the middle of a TV programme even without permission from the author of the TV programme. --Stefan4 (talk) 13:07, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
No. Derivative works are part of the EU reproduction right -- when you are making a derivative work, you are reproducing at least some of the expression of the original author. Adding additional (copyrightable) creativity on top is what makes it a separate "work" thus involving a second author, but if it distribution is still dependent on reproducing a copyrightable amount of the expression of the original author, it's still reproduction and thus subject to the original author's reproduction right. That is all a "derivative work" is. For Sweden, it looks like that aspect is listed in Article 4 (adaptations, translations, etc.) The U.S. does not have explicit moral rights... putting commercials in a TV program actually does not violate any copyright, and would not be a derivative work, since the commercials do not contain any of the expression of the original author. It would be more of a composite work, combining sections of the original work with (independently copyrightable) commercials. If the original author wants to prevent commercials in the U.S., they would have to explicitly negotiate that fact when drawing up the contract for the broadcasting (or whatever) rights, or give themselves the right to refuse the form of the broadcast, or something like that. At that point the contract would govern what the broadcaster could do or not do -- the author can't later decide that he thinks affect his work too much, the way that moral rights can do. Well, of course they could complain and depending on their relationship the broadcaster could well make changes -- but if it came to a lawsuit, it would be a contractual matter. The derivative/reproduction right is transferable (i.e. can be sold); moral rights generally are not. The closest equivalent really are more common law rights like en:misrepresentation, or in some statutory laws like the Visual Artists Rights Act (which is definitely moral rights, but very limited), some edges of the Lanham Act (which is mostly about trademark but can get into personal reputation and personality/publicity rights). That aspect looks like Article 3 in Sweden's law, which has no equivalent in U.S. copyright law. Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
What you call the 'EU reproduction right' appears to be what is known as 'moral rights' in the European Union. I am not aware of any country which has two separate methods for prohibiting modifications. The modification prohibition is either formulated as a prohibition of 'derivative works' as in the United States or by including an article about 'moral rights' as in the European Union.
Article 4 of the Swedish copyright law is something else. Article 4 states that if you modify a work, the modifications and the original work are separately copyrighted and you need permission from both authors in order to use the work. That is, Article 4 tells from whom you need to obtain permission if you wish to use a modification, not whether you are allowed to make a modification in the first place. Article 4 was added to the copyright law in its more or less current form in 1919. Before that, permission from the original author was only needed during the first 10 years after the first publication of the translation, after which permission only was needed from the translator. --Stefan4 (talk) 11:48, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
No, Article 4 is exactly what derivative works are. If you make a derivative work, you need permission from the original author to distribute it. And if a third party wants to use a derivative work, they would need permission from both authors as well (unless one of the authors had obtained a license from the other allowing them to distribute at will or under the needed conditions). You do not really need permission from the original author to *make* a derivative work if it's kept private (that is basically always fair use); it is just about publishing/distributing them that would violate the (separate) copyright of the original. The distinction of "derivative work" is primarily one of registration at the U.S. Copyright Office; registrants need to identify the new expression they are adding versus the expression which already exists and is the property of someone else. As for the "EU reproduction right", it is the one identified in Article 2 of the 2001 EU copyright directive -- it is the basis of copyright (or the economic right, at least). Moral rights are a separate concept; they were outside the scope of the 2001 directive. (Translations to a local language have often been treated differently than most derivative works; since residents of a country generally can not make use of a work in a different language (and there was often little economic benefit for the original author to make a translation), the copyright barrier to translation is/was often a serious impediment to the spread of knowledge and general education, so there are often compulsory licenses, or other limitations to more easily allow translations to the local language.
From 17 USC 101: A “derivative work” is a work based upon one or more preexisting works, such as a translation, musical arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion picture version, sound recording, art reproduction, abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed, or adapted. From 17 USC 103(b): The copyright in a compilation or derivative work extends only to the material contributed by the author of such work, as distinguished from the preexisting material employed in the work, and does not imply any exclusive right in the preexisting material. The copyright in such work is independent of, and does not affect or enlarge the scope, duration, ownership, or subsistence of, any copyright protection in the preexisting material.

File:Escudo Albion Football Club.png

(Sorry for my english!) Some weeks ago I created the emblem of Albion Football Club, with a resolution of 4508 x 5718. I donated this file because It's mine, It was created by me in a png format using a Power Point and Paint.net, so it is not a copyright violation. To verify that this is true, I leave this link in which I upload the file I created and how I did it [10]. --Juanchocarbonero (talk) 03:54, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

File:Neil Patrick Harris at the Hudson Union.jpg

This picture is owned by the Hudson Union Society. The President of the Hudson Union, Joe Pascal, gave me permission to use pictures from their Facebook/website to update the Society's Wikipedia page with accurate information. I have some other pictures on the page that I hope will not be deleted as well. Not sure if I need to select a different option when uploading, but there is definitely no copyright violation.--Collin187 (talk) 04:15, 24 June 2015 (UTC)Collin Gurgul 6/24/15

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are three areas of concern here. First, while the Society may own a copy of the picture, it is unlikely that it owns the copyright and has the right to license it. Copyrights are almost always held by the photographer and there transfer requires a special written agreement. Second, "use pictures from their Facebook/website to update the Society's Wikipedia page" is not sufficient permission -- both Commons and WP:EN require that images be free for all uses by anyone anywhere, including commercial use. Third, as you say, the image has appeared on a copyrighted Facebook page.
In order for the image to be restored to Commons, the actual copyright holder must send a free license directly to OTRS. If your other uploads have any of these problems, they will also need free licenses sent to OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:41, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi! I'm currently trying to get the copyright in order. I know the person who's made the logo, and she's giving it the right licenze. Will we be able to upload the picture when the licenze is in order? It seems like the content is blocked for upload. If this is the case, i request it to be unblocked.

Files deleted by Odder

Please restore the following pages:

These files have been speedy deleted by Odder with the rationale "Requested by uploader: out-of-scope images, derivative works, etc.". The community rejected "out of scope" as a criterion for speedy deletion multiple times, and "uploader request deletion" is only valid for content created less than 7 days ago.

Asked to explain why he deleted the files anyway, he responded the following:

The files have been deleted using an automated script, and not having looked at any of them, I have no idea what they contained and therefore cannot comment on each deletion. I was, however, assured by @russavia that they are unused, out-of-scope pictures.

It is my understanding of our deletion policy that files should not be deleted just because one single editor, indefinitely banned or not, thinks that they are outside of our project's scope. Therefore, please let the community evaluate their scope-compliance in a regular request for deletion.

I believe it was a request from the original uploader (well, the one who imported from Flickr, and an experienced user). Those typically get bit less scrutiny. Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:17, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
I had a quick look at the files and most of files ending with word "map" look like this file. Such files would be in scope as a source for SVG versions. Although, I am not sure if such files wouldn't be derivative works of the copyrighted maps. If they are than I would not undelete the "maps". --Jarekt (talk) 12:42, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

External images of Category:Naval Museum of Chania

The two files were deleted on the (wrong) assumption that the building was built to house the museum, which opened in 1973. However, according to a local press article, provided by the museum web page (in greek, at Εφημερίδα "Κρητική Επιθεώρησις" φύλλο της 25.2.1973], the building dates from the venetian era (ended in Chania at 1640s) and was renovated (it was nearly ruined) to house the museum. So no FOP issues, the architect died more than 300 years ago. --C messier (talk) 13:18, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The DR says "Appears to be a modern building (on top of an older structure?)." If there's enough renovation that it appears to be a modern building, there's probably new copyrightable work involved.--Prosfilaes (talk) 05:12, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Looks can be deceiving. Freshly painted walls can make a building look new. Comparing with old photos (before it was ruined) the building looks, almost, the same [12]. It was the same size and the same design. --C messier (talk) 16:19, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
I tend to agree with C messier. Even so the BW picture isn't showing a lot of detail, IMHO there's no new building. The impression of being new might be due to the partly cleaned stone wall / foundation. My 2 cents. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:28, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
