File:Pete_Conrad_for_American_Express.PNG

Upon further review, the reason the photo should be restored is the following which is based on Wikipedia's Exemption Doctrine Policy, as found in (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Non-free_content)

a) added transformative value by explaining the importance of the photo in the captioning which conforms to the fair use clause of American copyright law

b) Images with iconic status or historical importance, Mr. Conrad was one of the figures involved in the American space race. Since it has been at least half a century since the end of the era, not to many people would be too familiar with his likeness. Moreover, wikipedia serves as a repository for the world's shared cultural heritage.

c) Pictures of deceased persons, in articles about that person, provided that ever obtaining a free close substitute is not reasonably likely. (dead for a decade)

d)Other promotional material, the whole point of advertising is to spread the message of the product, which I did by providing the attribution of the image.

File:Свод законов Российской империи том 01 (1912).djvu

I did not get the reason why this book was deleted. It's a completely different book comparing with File:Свод законов Российской империи. Том I (1833).djvu, created (compiled) by different editor at different time. So the deleted book cannot be simply "replaced" by the latter. Yes, that another edition was created by the government order, so it's sometimes called by the researches as an official edition while the nominated book -- often referred as a semi-official or private edition... So what, why both books (completely different books, though with same name) cannot be placed in Commons in order for users to work in Wikisource on transcribing both?

To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and a timestamp will then automatically be added when you save your comment.

Your upload had the following information in the file template |Description={{en|1=Picture of the Yusef Abad Synagogue, Tehran, Iran}} |Source=IranJewish.com |Author=Website of the Jewish Community of Tehran. It was nominated as a copyright violation due to being found at http://www.tineye.com/search/b301ffed41fa5598aadef7e46b4253ada040c65d . I searched the image after your request here and while the tineye search shows it at http://www.iranjewish.com/pic.htm ; I did not find the photograph at that address. That page has a statement that using these materials with attribution is free; however - and here's the tough part - that site doesn't provide any useful information as to who created the images which are a hodgepodge of photos and documents apparently culled from a wide variety of sources.

--Melonbob (talk) 02:18, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi Melonbob: I urge you to read COM:L prior to future uploads. Your most recently removed images were sourced as follows "taken by student and rights released". The license was given as a self-license. Obviously if someone not you took the picture, uploading it as user's own work is incorrect and the license is invalid. There is a process by which the copyright holder (the student) can provide permission for those images here, it would be to follow the instructions on COM:OTRS, filing the email requested. Additionally I think larger versions than 473 × 321 should be encouraged for your future uploads to Commons. I am sorry that in your good faith efforts to improve an article, you missed the complicated situation created by uploading the work of another and claiming it as own. It is that latter which caused the nomination and subsequent deletion of your uploads. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:15, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

File:FC8.H8177.879dc - Des destinées de l'ame - Harvard.jpg

There should be no copyright for this book. This may be a 3-dimensionial photograph but it has no additional creative element other than the original design from the 19th century. Further, as an official representative of the alleged/presumed copyright holders (Houghton Library, Harvard College), I was granted permission to offer a public domain license to the file (under the name User:Rob at Houghton. --Midnightdreary (talk) 15:40, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As you say, the book has no copyright, but the photograph certainly does. Assuming that the photographer who made the image is an employee of Harvard and has a work for hire agreement, Harvard owns the copyright to the photograph.

With all due respect to my colleague INC and to Midnightdreary, the latter hasn't answered the question of who took the photograph. The fact that Midnightdreary is Wikipedian in residence says nothing about whether he or she has been appropriately authorized by Harvard to give away its property.
If the image was taken by Midnightdreary, then it should be labeled as "own work" and we have no problem. If not, then policy requires that we have OTRS confirmation from Harvard in one of two ways -- either that Midnightdreary has a blanket authorization to upload works for which Harvard owns the copyright or that Harvard gives a free license (which could be CC-0 = PD) for this image. In either case, since Harvard will be giving away valuable property, that OTRS e-mail should come from an officer of the Harvard Corporation. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:20, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
True, I did not take the photograph myself. I hope you understand that I was employed by Harvard for this work, not merely a volunteer, so I was acting as an official authorized representative of the College. Nevertheless, I will have my former supervisor send an email, as you suggest. --Midnightdreary (talk) 12:43, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
As a general rule, only an officer (President, Vice President, Treasurer, etc.) of a corporation can give away corporate property, which includes giving away free licenses to corporate owned-copyrights. That authority can be delegated, but the delegation must begin with a corporate officer. As far as I know, we have no evidence on record that Harvard has delegated that authority to you, hence the requirement for OTRS. .     Jim . . . .

Es más, algún medio digital ha utilizado una foto que es, evidentemente, de dominio público. --Barakaldotar (talk) 09:16, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Barakaldotar: Que el ayuntamiento la ofrezca a los medios de comunicación no significa necesariamente que permita cualquier uso de la imagen, incluso comercial y las modificaciones, para siempre, que es lo que se pide en Commons. Aún menos significa que esté en dominio público.--Pere prlpz (talk) 20:36, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Pere prlpz: Sin embargo, ¿sería correcto subir una imagen de esta persona si la he sacado yo mismo con mi móvil?

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Barakaldotar: Si la sacas tú mismo (con el móvil o con una cámara), entonces no hay problema. El problema es cuando subes una foto sin que quede justificado que tienes el permiso del fotógrafo.--Pere prlpz (talk) 20:51, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Illinois_State_University_College_of_Business.png

Non-free media information and use rationale - non-free logo for Illinois State University College of Business

Low Resolution?: Logo was selected in order to maintain the quality intended, without being unnecessarily high resolution.

Adheres to Illinois State University Graphics Standards: https://universitymarketing.illinoisstate.edu/downloads/standards/ISU_LogosonProducts_Dec2012.pdf https://universitymarketing.illinoisstate.edu/downloads/standards/ISU_GraphicStandards.pdf

Source: The logo is from the http://advancement.illinoisstate.edu/giving-to-isu/college-business/ website.

Article: Illinois State University College of Business

Description: This is a standardized unit logo for the College of Business owned by University Marketing and Communications at Illinois State University. Further details: Unit Logo for the Illinois State University College of Business

Portion used: Whole logo used to avoid misrepresenting image.

Purpose of Use: The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing Illinois State University College of Business, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.

Replaceable?: Protected by copyright and trademark, therefore a free use alternative won't exist.

Other information: Use of the logo in the article complies with Wikipedia non-free content policy, logo guidelines, and fair use under United States copyright law as described above.

File:Bengal_tiger_paw_dissection.gif

The file in the title and about 100 others that I uploaded, as long as a year or two ago, were deleted with no notice by User:SounderBruce. The user offered no explanation for this action except by including a generic notification box on my talk page which says something incredibly vague about copyright policy. The list of deleted images can be seen on my talk page. This is the second time these and other images have been deleted. They were reverted back to their original state last time because, as I explained then, they are (almost all of them) my partner's work, and I have his explicit permission to upload them here under the given license. There is absolutely no reason why they should be deleted. They are original work with explicit permission given by the creator. Nate Wessel (talk) 12:33, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment See also Commons:Help desk#People keep bulk deleting my uploads. This is surprisingly infuriating. What to do?. Yann (talk) 13:44, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
It seems that I was mistaken in nominating these photos for deletion. While the site-wide license is CC-BY-NC, the individual files are listed with a CC-BY-SA license (which were not linked from the description pages, hence my misunderstanding). I'd like to request that the two most recent uploads (both pictures of printed bus schedules) are not restored, since they're still a copyright violation. SounderBruce 15:27, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
It would be useful if the deleting admin were alerted to any prior deletion history, along with an "are you sure?" prompt before proceeding. Basically, mass deletions should be hard to automate if there are prior undeletions. -- (talk) 15:34, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
The flaw here, I think, is due to a misunderstanding of COM:EVID, specifically that "Note that in the case of files found on the Web, this should not be the URL of the file, but the URL of the page containing the file, so that Commons editors can find background information when required." The ones that I looked at were to the site homepage (which indicates a -NC license) not the specific file pages that indicate -SA. (When I wrote my comment on the Help Desk, I had not yet seen that the individual pages indicated -SA licenses... since I apparently misunderstood the licensing in the exact same way as SounderBruce I'm rather disinclined to fault him for it...when these are undeleted the file pages MUST be fixed to point at the specific sources that give the -SA license, to prevent this from happening again, and I would suggest they all be flagged for a license review to be done, so that it's explicitly clear in the future.)

If Google cache is showing the right image, I see a version (with the same filename) at http://www.sixdegreesrecords.com/gaudi/ . The EXIF information states that it was created in October 2014 by Penny Slinger & Dhiren Dasu, and the copyright is claimed in 2014 by BlueLotusTemple.com .

File:Austin Mardon.jpg Express permission was given to use this image

This picture was sent to me by Dr. Austin Mardon for use in his wikipedia page, and the author of the picture is his wife Catherine, not Austin himself (which was listed in the data, but the request for deletion claimed it wasn't a selfie so the author must be wrong. It wasn't wrong.) The date could've been wrong but that can be fixed. There was no reason to delete this photo. Thndrbkt (talk) 15:46, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

I would like to request an undeletion of this particular image as it was made available to the press and public via the Kochi-Muziris Biennale website. Jitish Kallat had curated the second edition of the Biennale which opened on December 12, 2014. This image was circulated widely to the press and copyright was not at all insisted on. It was a publicity image and it appears on various other websites. I took permission from the artist himself in order to use the image.

File:E-cigarette story photo.jpg

This file was created for a CDC report, it is in the public domain! CFCF (talk) 20:26, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question How do you explain that it is credited to Getty here? Yann (talk) 20:33, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Okay, it seems like the image was used by the CDC without attribution, making the copyright status unclear. Next time I would appreciate a proper a deletion request procedure. Normally the NIH attributes all non-PD images, I don't know why they didn't here. I'm not going to take the time to actually inquire if the copyright is CDCs or someone elses, but using speedy delete was not the right call. CFCF (talk) 20:43, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
The CDC actually states "Content source: National Center for Environmental Health" for all content on the page http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/hsb/success_stories/ecigarette_study.htm CFCF (talk) 20:46, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Look at http://regex.info/exif.cgi?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fnceh%2Fhsb%2Fimages%2Fe-cigarette_story_photo.jpg if you don't believe me. LX (talk, contribs) 21:08, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
The photo is by Diego Cervo and is on a number of stock image sites (for pay). For example here or here or here. Which is what the EXIF also says. While the CDC source makes it understandable that it was uploaded... it's still a pretty obvious copyvio once you see the source, so I can't fault the speedy deletion either. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:27, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
It is very common for Getty to offer to commercially license images that are also available through PD sources. One of the best known is this pair File:Lewis W. Hine - Powerhouse Mechanic - Google Art Project.jpg and [2] Andy Dingley (talk) 21:51, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
The metadata of the image at the CDC source shows that it's a stock photo from Getty Images. Diego Cervo is a stock photographer, not an officer or employee of the CDC or ay other part of the US Federal Government. (Google the name!) Can we lay to rest the notion that Getty Images nicked this from the CDC? LX (talk, contribs) 22:08, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

6000 files to restore

Hello, long time no see.

Permissions-ko team has received valid permission email for COM:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Files from the Seoul Metropolitan Fire and Disaster Headquarters/List, archived at ticket:2015063010008898. Since there is a lot of files to restore, I'd like to get help from fellow administrators to restore the files.

Thanks, — regards, Revi 08:41, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Well, we have to sort the images to check whether it is in COM:SCOPE or not according to the DR... — regards, Revi 08:42, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
It is rather difficult to decide that while the images are hidden. So I suggest to restore them all, and DR the ones which do not fit our scope. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:58, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Matanya will look if he can mass undelete the files later today. Will safe us a lot of work :). Natuur12 (talk) 15:20, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
I disagree the unblock. He clearly needs some break, in any way. See his talk page archive and histories, you will notice he is problematic uploader excluding this case. He shouls be final-warned, or blocked again. (ps. never trust his self-sent OTRS message, it is not authorative.) — regards, Revi 05:42, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
I am the culprit who deleted the 6,000 but only because there was no progress on permission at the time. If Matanya is unable to restore, I will be willing to help restore some but not all of them because from what I recall, they were not all in scope. User:Kwangmo seemed to misunderstand requests to slow down the uploads. Now that the account is unblocked, I would like to see a firm comment from them that they will abide by our policies. This should be his/her final warning and if they don't comply, they should be blocked for longer terms. Green Giant (talk) 06:36, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
It's all your fault, Green Giant Clin
I'd ask an KO-N admin to explain the rules. I think it is OK to unblock now, because the reason of the block was the upload of the ~6k files. I read the ticket and IMHO it seems fine. If somebody else wants to have a look, please go ahead but leave a reply for me pretty please Face-smile.svg I think Kwangmo is pretty much done uploading now. I rather have him unblocked and see what he's doing. We can always block, getting a donation of over 6,000 files is doesn't occur that often. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 06:42, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Silly me. @-revi: Could you please advise him? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:21, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
I have been advising him since last August and I hardly find a progress on his uploads... His filename is always (his name)-(locations)-**** with some exception, has uploaded numerous out-of-scope images (this is the only progress I've seen, but haven't checked recent uploads) claiming non-self upload as his own and sending inappropriate OTRS.... Still I'm trying to tell the rules, but it's kinda frustrating to see no progress. — regards, Revi 13:21, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

The rights lie with Darmstätter Tage der Fotografie and they have given me the written permission to upload the picture to Wikipedia on 23th June 2015. So all is right and please undelete the picture. (Oletruderung (talk) 07:05, 13 July 2015 (UTC))

It would be best if the rights owners followed the procedure at COM:OTRS. Not sure if just forwarding the permission you got to the email address mentioned there would be enough though you could try -- if you only got permission for Wikipedia though, that would not make the image "free", as the rights must be such that anyone can re-use the image, make derivative works, use in commercial contexts, etc. The statement should be explicit that they are licensing the image on those terms, and we generally prefer to have it come directly from the rights holders, since user accounts here are basically anonymous.

This is our (Netball Jamaica) image. We own the rights after our photographer, Collin Reid, took the images for us. Why was it deleted? I thought this issue had been sorted out. We have had lengthy discussions regarding this matter so is it that not all of the Wikicommons moderators know about this because there seemed to be no real reason for deletion other than Michael Barera 'suspecting' it was copyrighted. We are trying to grow our social media landscape but these persistent issues constantly comes as deterrents. Is it that we need to forward you the email string to show our correspondence with our social media manager, Gina Harrison, to show proof?

Here are some other pictures from the event.

Commons can only host content that is in the public domain or that the legitimate copyright holder has agreed to publish under a free license. The file description page for this photo has no license or PD tag. According to the file description before you blanked it, you grabbed the file from the web site of Bogomolets National Medical University. Presumably, the licensing claims and the claim that you're the copyright holder were not true. As such, it's a non-free Internet image, and I've marked it for deletion.

Two pictures of Gandhi

Hi, Could you please restore 2 pictures of Gandhi, should be licensed under {{PD-UK-unknown}}. Thanks, Yann (talk) 09:06, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

  • File:Gandhi studio 1931.jpg
  • File:Gandhi Downing Street.jpg
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose According to the deletion requests, there is no evidence whatsoever that the photographers are anonymous. {{PD-UK-unknown}} requires evidence of this. Besides, according to COM:L#Interaction of US and non-US copyright law, the files also need a valid copyright tag which proves that the files are freely licensed or in the public domain in the United States. You therefore also need to provide a valid United States copyright tag which proves this. --Stefan4 (talk) 14:09, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
    • I am studying Gandhi documents for the last 22 years. The author of these pictures is unknown. The copyright also expires before the URAA date. According to en:Copyright law of the United Kingdom, the term was 50 years until 1995. So the copyright expired in 1982 for pictures taken in 1931. This is the same situation as all other pictures in Category:Mohandas K. Gandhi in England. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:58, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
      • No, the UK retroactively restored copyright to 70pma on January 1, 1996, which coincided with the URAA date, so those restorations had an effect in the US as well (even if they were PD in both countries the day before). They are likely now fine in the UK but not the US, unless they were published in the US within 30 days of their being first published in the UK. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:46, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
        • That's not what the article says: they extended the copyright period for all works which were then still in copyright. These pictures were out of copyright, so why would the copyright be extended? Regards, Yann (talk) 20:20, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
          • That's only a partial quote; the rest of the sentence says ", and (controversially) revived the lapsed copyright of all authors who had died in the previous 70 years, i.e. since 1925." I'm pretty sure the author of that sentence was not taking anonymous works into consideration one way or another. There's another sentence about this extension:
It contained a controversial provision, which caused certain copyrights to revive; material which had been out of copyright came back into copyright. If the 1988 Act offered a shorter term of protection than the new Regulations, and if the work was still under copyright on 1 July 1995 anywhere in the EEA, then the copyright of that work was revived.
Which means Germany law would have reanimated the copyright in the UK.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:00, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Right, the article says and if the work was still under copyright on 1 July 1995 anywhere in the EEA. That is anywhere in the EEA, not just in the UK. So far, I don't think we've found an example of a work exempted because it was PD in all EEA countries. (The "anywhere in the EEA" text was right from the directive; some countries dispensed with that and basically codified the intended effect, i.e. that it applied to all works basically in order to harmonize the terms.) For example, Spain had an 80pma rule and I think used the rule of the longer term, which would probably cover just about anything less than 70pma / 70 years from publication. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:21, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
According to the Phil Collins ruling from 1993, it's illegal to discriminate EU citizens, so EEA countries are unable to use the rule of the shorter term if the photographer is an EEA citizen. For that reason, British photos taken by EU citizens (i.e. the vast majority of all British photos) get the full copyright term in for example Spain and were therefore copyrighted in Spain on 1 July 1995. The situation may be different if you have a British photograph (that is, a photograph first published in the UK) which was not created by an EU citizen. In that case, EU countries were allowed to use the rule of the shorter term, so maybe British photographs by non-EEA citizens were in the public domain in the entire European Economic Area on 1 July 1995, provided that they were at least 50 years old as of that date. One of the photos of Gandhi has a name suggesting that it was taken in London, so I suppose that the photographer was a British (i.e. EU) citizen. No idea about the other one. Is there some information on the file information page? --Stefan4 (talk) 20:13, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Both these images were taken in London during Gandhi's visit in 1931 there. On was taken in front of the Prime Minister's Office [3], the other one in a studio [4]. It is quite remarkable that Dinodia sells pictures on which they have no right, and without crediting the author (e.g. Cartier-Bresson). Regards, Yann (talk) 23:40, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, there isn't much penalty for claiming copyright when there is none. And they may just trying to claim copyright on a scan, or something like that. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:36, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure that Spain used the rule of the shorter term before... here is their 1987 law; Google Translate is not the best but it seems as though they gave foreign authors the same terms as their own. I'm guessing at the least that would be any author from either Berne or UCC countries, which is most of them. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:36, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is a typical case where URAA is a complete nonsense... How long are we going to follow this? Yann (talk) 10:40, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
It is complete nonsense to imagine that British photographers should have rights under US law? The photographers here have the same 95 years in the US they would have had had they been Americans (and followed all the paperwork.)--Prosfilaes (talk) 11:12, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it is a complete nonsense because it is in the public domain in the UK and everywhere else in the world for more than 33 years. Beside that, the photographer is anonymous, and most probably dead. Yann (talk) 11:23, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
It was required by the Berne Convention, and is the law, like it or not. I also don't like the retroactive 70pma terms the EU imposed around the same time but we don't get to ignore those either. Pretty sure the UK and US already had a bilateral treaty from 1891 which (if it was like the others the U.S. signed at the time) gave British authors the same rights in the US as U.S. authors. Granted that included the requirement of copyright notice, but the URAA basically returned to that situation without notice requirement. 95 years from publication is a very long time but quite often 70pma lasts even longer. Also, it has only been PD in the EU for 13 years (and Spain likely just for 3 years). Several EU countries had 70 year terms before the directive (80 for Spain) so it never became PD in those before 2002. And that is all assuming it qualifies as "anonymous" in those countries... some have some maddeningly vague requirements on that score. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:37, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
I assume that the rule of shorter term is used. Regards, Yann (talk) 00:50, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Well, that is also not the law. (The U.S. has a number of bilateral copyright treaties still in force which would prevent it anyways, just as that same treaty prevented Germany from using that rule for U.S. works.) Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:49, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

It seems nobody dares to take care of this. :( Yann (talk) 10:04, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

If it's already been sent, it will be reviewed by a volunteer, and if there is sufficient evidence of a valid permission, the volunteer will also act to restore it. If there is not sufficient evidence, the volunteer may request additional information. LX (talk, contribs) 18:12, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

This logo is allowed under fair use. It did not have the proper template when first uploaded.

Jheartfield (talk) 04:17, 16 July 2015 (UTC) July 16, 2015

{{Fair use}} is a speedy deletion template, because fair use content cannot be hosted on Commons. LX (talk, contribs) 08:56, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm at a loss. I originally uploaded this logo with the permission of the company that is the subject of the article. In fact, I got the logo from them. I indicated that on the original upload and it was deleted. I then inquired as to how to go about uploading the logo and was told to use a template that indicates fair use. I also see fair use as the basis for other logos used on Wikipedia. So, I have permission from the company that owns the logo; they are OK with having their logo on Wikipedia. If fair use is the explanation that has to be given to upload the logo, we are good with that. I'm at a total loss as to what the problem is. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. I wish I knew what it was.

Jheartfield (talk) 16:21, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry if the instructions you were given in the past were not clear. Let's back up a bit.
Right now, you are on Wikimedia Commons, which is not Wikipedia, but a sister project of Wikipedia, overseen by the same non-profit foundation: the Wikimedia Foundation. Wikimedia Commons (this site) is a repository of free, educational media files used by Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, and others.
By default, works such as logos that are not just simple text and geometric shapes are protected by copyright upon creation. Copyright protection means that the copyright holder has the right to specify who may use the work and how they may use it. Fair use is an exception that allows limited use of copyrighted works without requiring permission from the copyright holder in certain contexts. Because the exception depends on the context in which the material is used, it does not apply to general-purpose media repositories such as Commons. That's why we can't host fair use content. Furthermore, Commons only hosts copyrighted content if the copyright holder has given permission for anyone to use it for any purpose. That's why we can't host content under permissions that only cover use in Wikipedia articles.
Some Wikipedia editions, such as the English one, choose to use the fair use exception to allow non-free illustrations in their articles. Such files must be locally uploaded to the project in question and must not be uploaded here on Commons. To upload a non-free file locally to English Wikipedia, use their upload wizard and select "This is a copyrighted, non-free work, but I believe it is Fair Use" in Step 3.

Commons:Permission to edit or submit to Wikimedia projects & Commons:Nonphotographs, video, and inaccuracies

These two essays were deleted (Commons:Deletion requests/Commons:Permission to edit or submit to Wikimedia projects, Commons:Deletion requests/Commons:Nonphotographs, video, and inaccuracies) with the extremely minimal reasons: "useless essay", and "unused personal essay". This seemed like an odd reason to remove pages from public view (rather than, say, moving them to subpages of the author's user page). After reading the copies of them (via the Wayback Machine), they don't seem particularly useless or personal. As such, they should be restored. If they don't reflect current practice, they can be moved to user subpages. But unless a better excuse than "useless" and "personal essay" can be given, deleting them is plainly inappropriate.

File:Jucunda1 (1).jpg

It is comprehensible why you deleted this image (belongs to an author who has copyright over his photographical production), but if you look closely in his homepage (here:http://www.saturniidae.com/wenczel/wenczel.htm), he states that "No part of this web site may be used for commercial purposes without the written permission of the author holding the copyright; (but)however, any part may be used for research or other non-commercial purposes without prior permission."

In a few words: He specifically gives projects like Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons his permission to use that photos without notification (...Any part may be used for research or other non-commercial purposes without prior permission). So, it would be great if you could put the file back into the gallery. Thanks!

Files uploaded by Rnieders (line drawings)

This request applies to:

These were deleted last December (along with multiple other images by the uploader) in Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_Rnieders. @Jameslwoodward: (the closing admin) appears to be away. I previously discussed the matter with Jim by email and he stated that he would consider undeleting any images which Ralph Nieders created himself. Having spoken to Ralph, he states that the above (all line drawings) are all images which he created personally and to which he owns the copyright. I have spoken extensively to Ralph via email, Skype, and telephone, and I have no doubt that he is the Ralph Nieders who was involved with the Tijuana crossing project. I have also had communication from a senior member of staff on behalf of a US congressman confirming his identity. I am posting on Ralph's behalf as I believe the evidence is more than sufficient to undelete these images. There may or may not be further requests for other images from Ralph's uploads, but for now this applies only to these 11. Thanks, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 19:24, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Undelete I also can support this claim. I was in contact with a senior member of the San Diego Association of Governments who confirmed this and found documents supporting Ralph Nieders claim. --RobBertholf (talk) 15:17, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
  • HJ Mitchell We usually require a formal written permission for documents previously published elsewhere. If you have correspondence from Ralph Nieders confirming that he is the copyright holder, you could send this to OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:32, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
    • @Yann:, I'm not new at this, I know what the requirements are. There is already an OTRS ticket (ticket:2015010210007101); it was rejected on the grounds that Ralph emailed from a webmail account (he doesn't have an 'official' email address). I am more than satisfied myself that the Ralph Nieders who created these line drawings and the Ralph Nieders I have spoken to and who sent in the OTRS ticket are the same person, and I have received communication on behalf of a US congressman verifying the fact. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 19:49, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
      • HJ Mitchell, I was not aware of this, and you didn't mention this ticket in your request. This is a long discussion. I will look at it, and give my opinion. @Jkadavoor: Pinging Jee who reviewed this ticket. Your opinion? BTW this was already discussed at Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive/2015-02#Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Rnieders. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:34, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
        • Apologies, it took me a few minutes to track down the OTRS ticket. I'm aware of the previous undeletion request (but I wasn't party to it), but that got bogged down partly because it was for all of Ralph's uploads (and the copyright status of some of them is ambiguous at best), which is why this request is only for a subset. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 20:56, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
          • Symbol support vote.svg Support Finally I would support the request. At least these maps are undoubtedly in scope. There is also no doubt about the identity of Ralph Nieders. If there is some doubt about who are the copyright holders (they could be more than one), we can at least accept that Ralph Nieders is one of them. And this is enough to be able to release them under a free license. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:07, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support restoring works "in scope". I remember I forwarded his request for an admin from his area to interact with him. Thanks HJ Mitchell for taking this steps now. I think it is inline with our motto, "anyone with a complaint should be treated with the utmost respect and dignity". I can't see the conversion now; but it seems a bit hard, if I remember well.

File:Dr. Indu Prakash Singh.JPG

Dear Sir/Madam,

The image of Dr I. P. Singh was given to me by Mr. Rahul K Singh, his son. He owns this image and has given me full authority to use it freely for distribution or any other manner including but not limited to the Wikipedia page. As far as they are concerned, they have no objections to use this as a public image in their capacity of legal executors of Dr Singh. Moreover, most of Dr Singh's career preceded the digital images era and therefore there are not many images of him digitally available. I would request this image to be undeleted and put back. The reason for the image being deleted is shown as "an image that appears to be a picture of a picture." It is indeed a picture of a picture as it was sent to me in this very manner. For reasons best known to them, the family did not send a scanned copy. The original and only other version of this image resides in a frame on the desk of Dr Singh's grandson. If required, i can ask them to send me a written email authorising me to use the image which i can provide to you as evidence.

Yours Sincerely,

M

File:AAFES_pogs.jpg

My photo was hastily deleted by somebody who claimed it was a derivatives work despite it being the work of a US government employee. Here's the conversation I had with him for reference.

Hi -- if my file AAFES pogs is not acceptable because it is a derivatives work, can you tell my why [5] and [6] are allowed? Please also tell me why you think these are copyrighted -- they do not have a copyright notice on them. Thanks. Nautilator ft (talk) 07:30, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Copyright notices are not required. I nominated both images for deletion. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:01, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Please tell me why you think these are copyrighted. According to [7], the photos depicted were attained from photo contests held among military employees. That seems to me to fit the definition of "This image or file is a work of a U.S. Air Force Airman or employee, taken or made as part of that person's official duties. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image or file is in the public domain." Nautilator ft (talk) 16:32, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
I think will be necessary to find out source images used on pogs. If they were created by military, they should be fine. Please continue on deletion request pages. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:53, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
"some were very touching because people mailed their dad's original photo albums from WWII". The presumption there to me is not that they were all made as part of the person's official duties, but rather that some of them weren't part of a government employees' official duties.

File:Max Chilton in the Media Suite at the Belgian Grand Prix, prior to reselection.jpg

The file is a photograph taken by me and then manipulated slightly in photoshop - therefore the copyright, such as it is, belongs to me. --J.r.wordcraft (talk) 15:35, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Unless someone can voice a reason to challenge the uploader's credibility that he or she was present in the Media Suite to take this photo, shouldn't this image be restored?
User:Hedwig in Washington's note in the deletion log says: "deleted page File:Max Chilton in the Media Suite at the Belgian Grand Prix, prior to reselection.jpg (Copyright violation: obvious derivative work of commercial broadcasting)".
Woah. Years ago a really bad quality control volunteer put some bosus deprecated licences on some very fine images uploaded by User:CambridgeBayWeather. Those licenses would have resulted in the images being part of a huge deletion of all "non-commercial" images, back when we changed policy and stopped allowing them. The justification of this quality control volunteer? The images were of too high a quality to have been the work of a wikimedia volunteer.

The allegation that a user is basing their decisions on ethnic prejudices is an extremely grave one – you'd better have some very solid basis for that statement if you wish to avoid being blocked for making personal attacks. It looks like this file was deleted by a Commons administrator because your claims that you created the drawing yourself are most likely untrue. A different version of the same drawing can be found here, and that's clearly scanned from a book (as the text from the other side of the paper is shining through).

Well, I'm not an administrator on Commons, so I can't speak for them. However, I don't think that would be adequate. Photographs of astronomical objects taken by astronomers are not automatically in the public domain, just like if you took a photo of the moon your photo would not automatically be in the public domain. Photos of astronomical objects prepared by employees of NASA in the course of their official duties are an exception, these are PD. Photographs by non-American space agencies are not necessarily in the public domain. Agencies like the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) can and do claim copyright to many of their publications and the works of their employees. However, ESO does release some of its photos under the CC-BY-4.0 license in a public image gallery, unfortunately photos of 120347 Salacia are not in that gallery. With regards to the photo of 2006 RH120 by Peter Birtwhistle, he holds the copyright and he has not released it under a free license. However, you might consider contacting him and seeing if he'd be willing to have the photo published under a free license (see Commons:OTRS for how to go about this in a way that Commons will accept). —RP88 (talk) 02:03, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

File:SuprasiddulaJeevithaVisheshalu.djvu

Suprasiddhula Jeevitha viseshalu book has been added to telugu wikisource via wikimedia commons. I request admins to undelete the book because:

  • Digital Library of India (DLI.gov.in) states it is OUT_OF_COPYRIGHT. Someone asked "why does the DLI believe that the book is out of copyright?" in its deletion request, I've to say it is not the question of belief, but DLI does it copyright free. One of the missions for DLI is to contact authors and re-release its rights & so, it is a valid copyright statement (no place for mere beliefs).
  • According to some other experts(who even worked in OTRS team too) DLI already made each and every book present in the site as copyright free.
  • Telugu doesn't have any OCR and some of us from telugu community manually completed the entire book. This deletion demorilesed them and two of them anounced to stop working to wikis hereafter. Because many of such books also tagged similarly for deletion. Even though this is not a good reason to keep, I mentioned it to request someone to take speedy action on this.
  • along with this book the unknown IP user added deletion tags done for many obviously copyright free books which include iconic telugu writers scripts who died exactly 100 years ago and even to a clear OTRS entry too.

So, please peruse my plea and undelete the above said book. --Pavan santhosh.s (talk) 05:19, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question All I could find about the author, Janamaddi Hanumacchastri ([8], [9]) seem to show that he may still be alive. Could you explain please? Regards, Yann (talk) 09:45, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Janumaddi Hanumacchastri died recently, but grounds for my argument is that the DLI project made the copyright free by taking required permission and you can see in the DLI link of book itself that COPYRIGHT_STATUS = OUT_OF_COPYRIGHT. Thanks for a quick response. --Pavan santhosh.s (talk) 12:25, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
I am not really sure the information on DLI is reliable (cf. about File:Aandhrashaasanasabhyulu.pdf below). We have no information that it was explicitly released into the public domain by the author, which is the only way it would be in the public domain. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:30, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
That really sucks that so much work was done on it before someone really looked at the copyright. However... the source given in the file record, according to Google Cache, is archive.org (https://archive.org/details/SuprasiddulaJeevithaVisheshalu ). Unfortunately there is no oversight of copyright claims on archive.org and they are notoriously unreliable. The book is listed as being published in 1988 so it seems extremely unlikely it is out of copyright, unless the author explicitly released it to the public domain. It's not even 30 years old. The page at that link says "This book cannot be viewed because it is under review by the Million Books Project" right now -- so maybe they are reconsidering it as well, which they almost certainly should.

File:Long Drive (Album by A5).jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Hi, Just now I found the image file "Long Drive (Album by A5).jpg" had been deleted by you. I have started creating an article on Bengali band A5. There is no intention of promoting and advertising the band A5. I am providing the facts about this distinguished and popular contemporary and folk fusion band A5. In order to complete the article and provide enough evidence to support my article I need this picture. This is the picture of the front cover of their debut album "Long Drive". The image file has been handed over to me by A5. I have received necessary permission form all the members of A5, to use this image file in the article I am preparing now. So there is no copyright issue. I own the rights of this image. As a matter of fact some of the contents like artwork and texts were designed and provided to A5 by me. All the true music lovers in and beyond Bengal (Kolkata, West Bengal, India) should know more about this band A5. I request you to reconsider and please do not delete this image file.

I truly appreciate your kind cooperation. I need your support so that I can complete the article and contribute in Wikipedia. Thanks in advance. Jwiki100 (talk) 04:19, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Permission needs to be for anyone to use the images, not just Wikipedia, and even in commercial contexts. Most album covers are fair use only, so are not allowed on Commons, and these were probably speedy deleted on that basis alone. (Those can be uploaded to Wikipedia directly with a fair-use rationale, if no free license can be obtained.) In general though, previously-published material needs to go through the COM:OTRS procedure to get permission -- user accounts are basically anonymous, so it's impossible to verify. If a copyright holder can reply in the needed form to the address in that link, that should get the images undeleted. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:37, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

File:Aandhrashaasanasabhyulu.pdf

Please restore File:Aandhrashaasanasabhyulu.pdf ASAP. This is a book published in 1955. And this book is in public domain, because of following reasons,

  1. Published in probably June/July of 1955, any publication after 60 years, becomes PD material, if author's age cant be verified. The account statements of one bank in this book as an advertisement on page 67 proves that. All the banks or finance agencies declare their assets in months of June/July only.
  2. This book is part of million books project, and considered to be put up on DLI website. The copyright policy of DLI as given at http://www.dli.gov.in/copyright.html states that all books at DLI are out of copyright and in public domain in India.

If that's the case, it will in the public domain on 01.01.2016. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:25, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Indian law is author's entire lives plus 60 more years, from what I see. I see a term of 60 years from publication for anonymous and pseudonymous works, but an author's age not being able to be verified is neither of those -- I don't see a provision for that. Which article specifies that? That's a pretty major difference. Secondly, Commons licensing requires works to be PD in both the US and India, not just India. If a work was published 1923 or later and was under copyright in India on January 1, 1996 then its U.S. term was restored by the URAA to 95 years from publication and is probably still under U.S. copyright. For authors who died before 1941, the works should still be OK, and anonymous works published before 1941 should be OK. (1941 because India was switching from 50pma to 60pma in 1996.) For others, we'd have to understand how something became PD to know what the status was in 1996. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:14, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Is it possible to upload works locally to the wikisource project, rather than hosting them on Commons? If the project follows just Indian law they may be able to more easily ignore the URAA. Looking at the Google Cache version of this page... I see the license was given as CC-BY-SA, not PD. Also, was this a government work? Those are 60 years from publication, which doesn't run out for another few months, but it's a lot more possible that a government site could have simply put it in the public domain (and may also be something like PD-author which may also avoid URAA issues). Unsure on this one... seems a little edgy to delete. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:57, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

There are two different licenses involved here. The Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license is a free license, and content published under that license is accepted on Commons. The Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license prohibits commercial use, so it is not free, and content published under that license cannot be hosted on Commons.
When File:Sebastian Thrun World Economic Forum 2013.jpg was uploaded to Commons, it was indeed published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license, which has been confirmed by a bot. As seen at https://www.flickr.com/photos/15237218@N00/8409920540, it seems that the World Economic Forum has since stopped distributing it under that license and selected the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license instead. They have the right do to so, but others also have the right to continue to use the image under the original license, as Creative Commons licenses are perpetual and cannot be revoked.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/worldeconomicforum/16148514399 is currently published under the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license, which is non-free and therefore not compatible with Commons. The file was uploaded to Commons only two days ago. Was it published without the Non-Commercial clause at that time? Do you have any evidence of that? LX (talk, contribs) 16:13, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

It appears it was just uploaded, so not sure it was in use yet. Is it any different than File:Voice of America Logo.svg or File:Voice of America Logo Blue.svg? There is also File:VOA Logo.jpg. Per the log it was deleted for lack of license; that should definitely be PD-USGov-VOA so there is no license issue.
