Hi Yann, The copyright at the bottom of the page refers to the website code and content. Aside from the "Duplication and Reproduction" policy at the bottom it also states that "All duplication of materials in Special Collections and Archives is done by staff only, and the library reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in the staff's judgment, fulfillment of the order would violate copyright law, or if size or condition of the material does not permit safe copying". Since the copy is distributed from their collection it is implied that it does not violate copy right and is open. OPJ91 (talk) 19:14, 26 August 2015 (UTC)OPJ91
@OPJ91: Hi, As the bottom of the page says "© Stevens Institute of Technology. All rights reserved.", documents from this institution are not automatically in the public domain. These are old pictures, so it would help if you provide the exact source(s), date(s), and author(s), which are necessary to determine the copyright. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:47, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
@Yann: Hi, Sorry if I'm misunderstanding, but I thought the "© Stevens Institute of Technology. All rights reserved." only applies to material on the website itself. The uploaded images were scanned copies of physical photographs in the university's archives which were distributed to me upon a visit (not contained on the website). If the the information provided on the "Duplication and Reproduction" policy does not suffice, would you advise sending asking a representative of the university to submit permission to OTRS? OPJ91 (talk) 13:03, 27 August 2015 (UTC)OPJ91
How did the copyright expire? Was this a published photograph at some point? Looking at the Google cache, it had a CC0 tag -- that implies that the uploader owns the copyright and is using that declaration to place it into the public domain. Was this a photo owned by the school as a work for hire? It is possible that it was {{PD-US-no notice}} or (if published before 1964) {{PD-US-not renewed}}, but... that is what we wanted to see. It may be that the school owns a still-valid copyright thus is able to let researchers copy it... they could be more careful about third-party copyrights than their own. What was the photo scanned from? Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:36, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Images for Jess H Davis and Harvey N Davis were both from early years of their presidencies (early 1950s and late 1920s, respectively) so both your suggestions are possible. As mentioned earlier these JPEGs were scanned from the original print photograph and was presumably used in yearbooks/newspapers. @Clindberg: did you find this photo through a different source within the Google cache where it was declared CC0? OPJ91 (talk) 15:24, 27 August 2015 (UTC)OPJ91
No, I saw the cache of the commons image page. I don't think that license is valid -- that would require the license to be explicitly stated as such by the university. So these were prints they had on file? Just given odds, they were probably published and are probably PD, but the precautionary principle usually means we would like some more concrete evidence that such copies were either distributed (i.e. published) themselves, or published elsewhere. If it was a private photograph, the copyright status does get murkier. What exact collection was the print in? Was it university records, or was it material donated by someone else? Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:39, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
The collection was university records/presidents collection (find aide available: https://www.stevens.edu/library/sites/default/files/presidentscollection.pdf -- Respective sections for JH Davis and HN Davis). Will an email from the Library Director/Archivist suffice granting permission for inclusion on wikimedia commons? OPJ91 (talk) 15:09, 10 September 2015 (UTC)OPJ91

 Not done: copyright status is unclear. The library has no right to give permission for free publishing, only photographer (or their heirs) can do it, but photographers are unknown. URAA demands waiting 95 years from first publishing, but as publishing data is also unclear, there is no restore date. Taivo (talk) 20:17, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

If that photo is your own work you must be around a hundred years old now. That's somewhat hard to believe. --rimshottalk 20:05, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

The website http://www.dacs.org.uk/knowledge-base/factsheets/copyright-in-photographs states that ‘Photographs made before 1st June 1957 were originally protected for a period of 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which they were taken (regardless of whether they were published or not).’ This photograph was taken in 1921 so is therefore out of copyright. This photograph is in my possession and I have copied it so believed reasonable to claim I was now the author and able to put it in the public domain.MrArmstrong2 (talk) 08:49, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Well then "own work" and a CC license is incorrect -- the author is the photographer. Making a copy of a work does not make someone an author. If the photo was commissioned by someone, that someone might be the copyright owner, even though not the author. If the work is public domain, then it needs a tag saying so. Read that page you linked more carefully though… in 1996, the UK restored copyright to photographs to a term of 70 years past the death of the photographer (author), even if it had become PD earlier through the 50-year rule. That photo was guaranteed protected in Spain in 1995 (which had a term of 80 years past an author's death), so this photo was in fact restored in the UK. That also meant it got restored in the US by the URAA, at least briefly. So… the question becomes, who is the author, and when was the photo published? If it was published anonymously in 1921, then there is a chance for it to be OK. It would need to comply with the tags {{PD-old-70}} or {{PD-UK-unknown}}. Unfortunately the "unknown" part is not simply just unknown to you… it's best if we can find the initial publication and show the photo was not attributed when it was actually published. If the author is not known, the publication history is important for the UK copyright determination, and it's always important for the US copyright determination (Commons requires this work to be public domain in both countries). Where did you get your copy? Was this an unpublished photo handed down through family, or something which was published and you have a copy? Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:01, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Per Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Paintings by Fedor Stukoshin, these files are not public domain because the author has not yet been dead long enough. -mattbuck (Talk) 14:42, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes, the copyright still exists and is presumably owned by the heirs. Some of the ones above appear to be photos which may never have been published; the U.S. copyright would last to the earlier of 95 years from publication or 120 years from creation (unless you can identify a photographer, in which case it would last their lifetime plus 70 years). The paintings are likely 95 years from when they were published, and their US copyright would have been restored by the URAA if it had been lost. Russian rules would be life plus 70 years for all works. The copyright may be owned by the heirs though... if they want to freely license it, that would be OK. But that may require some communication via the COM:OTRS procedure so we have some verification, and they would have to pick the license. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:44, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Ugh. I see that the policies page of the SEER website says: Documents on this site are sponsored by the NCI along with private companies and organizations. Accordingly, the appropriate parties may retain all rights to publish or reproduce these documents, or allow others to do so. All documents available from this site may be protected under the US and Foreign Copyright Laws. Permission to reproduce may be required. The training site in particular says: The training modules on this site are funded by the U.S. National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program, via contract number N01-CN-67006, with Emory University, Atlanta SEER Cancer Registry, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. So... the copyright status might depend on the wording of the contract. If the image was created by a third party and the contract does not stipulate PD-USGov copyright status, then the work is not PD-USGov and permission would be dependent on that third party. The government website obviously can display it, but it does not appear to be an indication of PD-USGov. This image should not be deleted alone; either all versions must go or we can keep all of them. Given the wide use of the image, it's probably worth it to investigate more and see if specific permission can be obtained (or if it's not needed). Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:33, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

File:Ronny-Lee-headshot01.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: At the time I uploaded the file, I gave it the licensing CC BY-ND. There has never been any other copyright or licensing of this file. If there is somewhere else I should have recorded the CC BY-ND licensing, please tell me. What entitles me to license this file: The file is a scan—by Morry Campbell—of a photo taken by Frances Leventhal (310 West 55th St. Apt. 3E, New York, NY) around 1985 of her husband Ronald Leventhal (same address, professional name Ronny Lee). Frances Leventhal died in 2005, leaving all property to her husband. He, in turn gave the photo to Morry Campbell for use on http://www.RonnyLee.com/aboutus.html, a page on a website at that time owned by Ronald Leventhal and re-designed by Morry Campbell. In 2013 Ronald Leventhal—because of his deteriorating vision—sold www.RonnyLee.com, together with the associated business Ronny Lee Publications, to Morry Campbell for $1. Morry Campbell set up Ronny Lee Publications, LLC, as a New York State limited-liability corporation to own all property he had bought from Ronald Leventhal. In 2014 Morry Campbell voted to replace himself as CEO of the LLC with David Hertzberg. I, David Hertzberg (WP name DovidBenAvraham), have uploaded the file here and licensed it CC BY-ND. Note: In 2013 Morry Campbell incorporated the photo two thirds down the page http://ronnyleescrapbook.tumblr.com/, where the provenance of the photo is described underneath it. DovidBenAvraham (talk) 09:50, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

ND is not allowed on commons. See COM:L --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:28, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

OK, I guess I'll have to license it CC BY instead. How do I go about changing that?DovidBenAvraham (talk) 12:13, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

If it has been previously published, which it sounds like it has, you need to go through the procedure at the COM:OTRS page to confirm the permission and the license. We would accept either CC-BY or CC-BY-SA (which is a little more restrictive). Once that is confirmed, the file will be undeleted. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:01, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

I submitted an undelete request by e-mail on 22 September 2015, specifying the license CC-BY-SA (the default). Now I have looked at the home page for www.RonnyLee.com (I didn't redesign the website; Morry Campbell did in 2013). By gadfrey, down at the bottom of that page in small print is "©2013 Ronny Lee Publications, LLC. All Rights Reserved." But, as stated above, I am the current CEO of Ronny Lee Publications, LLC, and that copyright would apply to the scan of the photo. OK, I guess I have to wait a couple of weeks for the file to be undeleted. Sigh! DovidBenAvraham (talk) 15:31, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Amrita Sher-Gil paintings

Hi, These files were wrongly deleted. The Indian law changed from 50 to 60 years pma in 1991, and was not retroactive. The author died in 1941, so her works became in the public domain in 1991 before the law was enacted. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:50, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

If the author died in 1941, they would not have been PD in India until Jan 1 199*2*, which means they got extended to the 60 year term and remained in copyright until Jan 1 2002. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:27, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
OK, but unless the law was enacted on January 1st, 1992, they were in the public domain when the new law came, right? Yann (talk) 23:23, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
It was made effective December 28, 1991, I believe. The idea was in part to preserve the rights of a famous poet who had died in 1941 -- so all authors who died in 1941 all had their works extended (that was the intent anyways). Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:27, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Either way, 2002 is long past, so the works by her should no longer be copyrighted in India. For the image of her, we'd need to know about the photographer. Or is this one of the ones where we run afoul of longer term in the U.S.? - Jmabel ! talk 01:22, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Yep. Being restored in 1992 meant it was still copyrighted in 1996, so they have the full 95-year-from-publication term in the US. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:43, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
The act is available at s:Indian Copyright Act (3rd Amendment) 1992. It was passed in 1992 but was made effective from December 1991, accordingly it covered 1941 (1991 - 50), full year, not December only. The act was made with the specific intention of raising the copyright period of the works of Rabindranath Tagore, who died in 1941. Accordingly, works by Indian authors who died in 1941 or later were not in the public domain on URAA date. Hrishikes (talk) 03:39, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Correct. There actually was a presidential order or some kind of ordnance actually issued in December 1991, which the full legislature had to confirm within six months by passing a full law, and it's that law which you linked to. So it did not need to actually be retroactive. But that is the gist of the situation. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:44, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
That's the problem with populist governments: they find out that the works of some famous author is soon going to enter the public domain, and then they wish to stop this. We had the same problem in Sweden back in 1942 when the parliament passed lex Strindberg, extending the copyright term for literary and dramatic works beyond 30 years p.m.a. In 1946, that law was superseeded by lex Sjögren, which also provided the same copyright extension for musical works. --Stefan4 (talk) 09:45, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Not only populist, the Indian government had financial incentive too. Tagore's books, even today, are the top selling Bengali books in India and Bangladesh, plus there are translations selling worldwide; huge quantity of Tagore's songs, cassettes and CDs of which still outrank other Bengali songs; plus film rights, TV rights etc. All these Tagore copyrights were held by the Indian government, as owner of Tagore's Visva-Bharati University. The university was vested with the Tagore copyrights. It is understandable why the government was unwilling to let go such a golden egg-laying swan. Hrishikes (talk) 14:47, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Eh... happens with all governments eventually it seems. India hasn't extended it since. Much of Europe was 50pma back in the 40s, so Sweden may have just found an excuse to keep up. Much of the world was moving to 70pma in the 1990s (including all of the EU and the US), which provided something of an excuse, and India went halfway. The cynical look at things is more that as countries become more of content exporters vs content importers, the terms tend to increase -- it's more in their own citizens' best interest. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:28, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, the Swedish copyright extensions were a bit odd... The 1942 extension only covered literary and dramatic works while the 1946 extension only covered musical works. Artworks, on the other hand, remained 30 years p.m.a. until copyright legislation went through a major revision in 1961. In other countries, copyright term changes tend to affect all kinds of works, not just the kind of works that certain famous authors happened to create. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:32, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
A bit, though France increased musical works to 70pma before they did that for most other works. Many had different terms for photographs. It was at least more normal to do that before the EU harmonization. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:41, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Jim Morrison 1968.jpg

I believe this image was wrongly deleted. The photo was published in a Billboard ad prior to 1978 with a brick overlay. Elektra Records published the ad without any notice, not crediting Brodsky with the photo they hired him to take, nor the artist who overlayed the photo with the brick effect.

Now we bring Dan Sugarman into the picture. Sugarman worked for the Doors before and after Morrison’s death and published books about the group in the later 1970s and into the 1980s. In 1979, Sugarman published a poster using this photo. Sugarman claimed copyright on the poster. But since he had nothing to do with the photo, this would have to be for the artwork-not the photo. Either Joel Brodsky or Elektra Records would have had to file a registration; Brodsky took the photo as Elektra hired him for that. Sugarman did not credit either Brodsky or Elektra records with the photo; nothing on the poster to reflect the connection of the photo with Brodsky or Elektra and no notices regarding the photo by Brodsky/Elektra-only the notice by Sugarman for this poster using the photo. There are no registration records for Sugarman regarding the poster. This is the earliest legal publication of the photo (without overlay) I’ve been able to locate.

Move up to 1980-when Sugarman and Jerry Hopkins published No One Here Gets Out Alive. They use the photo on the cover with color treatment. The copyright for the book is registered to Jerry Hopkins. Joel Brodsky is credited for the photo on the back cover but there is no indication of a Brodsky copyright for the photo . I can’t link to copyright.gov because they don’t provide permanent links, so have to just paste the information.

Now go back to Brodsky and Elektra Records. If one looks at

Template:PD-US-1978-89 notice, it says “This work is in the public domain because it was published in the United States between 1978 and March 1, 1989 without a copyright notice, and its copyright was not subsequently registered with the U.S. Copyright Office within 5 years.”

So Brodsky and/or Elektra would have had to register a copyright for the photo by 1984: copyright.gov information below:

There are links to the 1967-1977 copyright searches for both Joel Brodsky and Elektra Records on the 2 DRs. There were no registrations for this photo by either.

There’s just nothing on the record from 1967 onward re: the photo being registered by either Brodsky or Elektra. Either of them would have had to register it by 1984—the 5 year period from 1979-poster published without notice regarding the photo.

I believe if administrators here really look into this you'll see that it's not a clearcut deletion, and naturally Brodsky is going to claim ownership for financial reasons anyway. I'd like to see this given a fair look by somebody other than Carl Lindberg, and by that I mean not worrying what Kaldari a WM employee might think of you and genuinely neutral here.Dr. Blofeld (talk) 07:42, 28 September 2015 (UTC)


Lot of info here... but a couple of things. First, publication of a derivative work without notice only put the additional material into the public domain -- the copyright of the underlying work was unaffected. Secondly, in most situations, the copyright on a composite work (selection and arrangement of materials) also applied to all contained works -- even if the wrong name. The wrong name could have some impacts, but loss of copyright over any of the component parts was not one of those impacts. Also, a copyright notice was also valid if it was in the name of a licensee of the work, even if they fail to mention the original author and the actual copyright owner. This was not true initially under the 1909 Copyright Act, but judges gradually changed their position so that by the 1970s a notice in the name of a licensee would serve to protect all involved copyrights and not inject any into the public domain. This applied especially after 1978, when the 1976 Copyright Act went into effect. So, looking at your links above (thanks for the research by the way, that is a lot), this is what I see:


The brick overlay poster seems to be a derivative work, and thus, the lack of notice would not put it the original into the public domain. Now, if that was the first publication of that photo, that may well mean we can keep the image of the poster -- since as much of the original is in that poster, I think would have become public domain, if that was the first legal publication. In that case, it's actually not really a derivative work, it's the original -- it's just that the original photo had a lot more detail and thus expression which was not published, and that expression remained copyrighted. If the original image was legally published with notice before that poster, then the poster is a straightforward derivative work, and even though the additional expression in the poster is PD it may actually still be subject to the copyright in the photograph and may still not be free in its entirety (the parts which are copied from the photo). This is the rather aggravating situation where "no notice" can still mean it's not OK, but courts have now ruled on this several times so it's pretty solid law.


The Dan Sugarman poster... does have a copyright notice. If we presume that he legally licensed the original image, then that is a valid copyright notice which covers all the works on the poster (at least to the point of preventing them from falling into the public domain). The fact that he did not credit Brodsky does not matter. (It did in say the 1930s, but... this was 1979 and judicial attitudes, plus the law, had changed.) If he did not license the photo, then it would be an illegal publication which would also not affect the original copyright. The missing name of the copyright owner may limit some situations that Mr. Brodsky could sue for infringement of copyright over, but it would not invalidate the copyright.


On the book... there could be multiple ways the copyright was covered. First, the cover is a crop of the photo with color treatment -- that is also a derivative work (does not contain the entire original photo anyways), so it could not inject the complete original photo into the public domain in any event, just the new expression. Second, there is a copyright notice in the book. Much of the time, that will also cover a selection and arrangement copyright of the composite work of the text plus illustrations, etc. Even if not specifically registered, that could still be a valid copyright, and cover all the component works. Also, if Jerry Hopkins was a legal licensee of the photo, that copyright notice would also be valid. I did see a Copyright Office decision recently where the cover of the Jaws paperback edition had its cover image swapped out by the publisher from the hardcover, and the Office ruled that the copyright notice in that case (which was to the author only) did not cover the new image, since the author was not a licensee, and there was no "selection and arrangement" copyright of a simple combination of a cover and all the rest. But that is a difficult thing to rely on in most cases -- a copyright notice to the publisher might have covered it (as a licensee), and if the cover choice was also done by the author of the book, that might also cover it. There are also two instances in the Copyright Office appeals rulings where they decided there was enough doubt in the matter that they allowed covers of two Frank Zappa albums to be covered by a copyright notice inside, and issued registrations. None of those decisions are court rulings either so they are not legally binding, and there's not a lot of precedent to go by, and most of it is probably against public domain status.


So... we have a poster which used a modified photo published without notice, then a subsequent poster which pretty much used the original photo but published with notice (even though the notice was the name of a presumed licensee only), and a subsequent book which used a cropped and colored version of the photo on the cover, but also did have a copyright notice inside. The second two appear to me, at worst, to be valid copyright notices with an "error in name". Per the US Copyright Office circular, page 5, that was a situation which could limit infringement in some cases, but that would not invalidate the copyright. Only lack of notice, or an invalid notice, would do that. As for the licensee part... I'll quote from the legal analysis of the "Happy Birthday To You" song:
Proper copyright notice generally had to include the name of an owner of copyright. When the 1909 Act said “owner” (or “proprietor”) it really meant owner: a licensee, who had only limited rights of use under a contractual arrangement, even exclusive rights, wouldn’t qualify. [...] In 1970, the Second Circuit held in Goodis v. United Artists Television, Inc., that copyright notice in the name of a mere licensee – the publisher of a magazine – would not forfeit copyright protection in a novel that was serialized in that magazine. Both judicial and legislative attitude was turning away from strict notice requirements and the so-called “indivisibility doctrine,” under which holders of licenses, even exclusive licenses, that covered less than all of the rights subsumed under copyright could not claim to be owners. Drafts of the 1976 Act, which would greatly soften notice requirements and put exclusive licensees on a par with owners, had been circulating for quite some time, and Goodis cited those drafts heavily.In the 1981 case of Fantastic Fakes v. Pickwick International, the Fifth Circuit followed the Second, also holding that copyright notice in the name of a licensee would not forfeit copyright, at least when no one had been misled by that notice. The Ninth Circuit jumped on the bandwagon in 1988, in Abend v. MCA.
So, even under the 1909 Act in the 1970s, courts were ruling that a valid copyright notice in a name other than the copyright owner would still serve to protect the original copyright. Also as mentioned, that situation (not losing copyright when the notice was in the name of a licensee) became more explicit in the 1976 Act, and it sounds like both the Sugarman poster and the book would have been under the terms of that 1976 Act (unlike the Jaws paperback I mentioned above). So it seems very unlikely that either of those would trigger the loss-of-copyright situations which would require registration within five years -- the original copyright of the photo, even if not registered, would remain valid. Since 1909 it has not been required to register a work to gain copyright protection. It was required to file a renewal after 28 years to keep copyright beyond that time, but for works published 1964 and later this was not required either -- thus, a simple publication with notice (even if the wrong name) has been enough to preserve copyright for works since 1964. I hate to keep going against the photo, but... that is the law as I understand it. If you could cite some references to back up your statement of "But since [Sugarman] had nothing to do with the photo, this would have to be for the artwork-not the photo. Either Joel Brodsky or Elektra Records would have had to file a registration" that would help. I certainly don't know all court cases and could be missing something. But as I see it given my links above, I don't think any registration has even been required from Brodsky on the photo. We would have to see an actual copy of the photo distributed without notice (or with invalid notice) to trigger that requirement, I think. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:34, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
And thus Carl Lindberg has spoken. Seriously, there are times I will disagree with him, but he's got a pretty good history of being correct, and unless I see something wrong, I don't usually see much of a need to interject. Basically, the works you're dealing with are modern enough and well enough copyright-noticed that it seems unlikely that a court would rule that copyright was lost.--Prosfilaes (talk) 05:15, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

These prerogatives being met, anyone is completely free to distribute the actual words (of a newspaper article) in any form whatsoever. The physical paper can be scanned and the ensuing image can legally be highlighted, framed, spun, overprinted, cartoon-ized ...anything actually, as long as the WORDING retains its original integrity.

This article is of historical significance; we would appreciate if it would not at all be considered for deletion since users will surely want to reference it in their contributions. --Mlaucke (talk) 08:56, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

File:Laucke with Elton John, working for AIDS.jpg <<<KINDLY DO NOT CONSIDER DELETION ==

This photo was taken with my own camera, with the full and express permission of Elton John, during our work together at the time. I have full ownership and can legally use it any way I please. It is mine. It should not be considered for future deletion. Contributors will surely wish to link to this historic photo.

All photos are owned by me. Either they were taken with my own camera, or taken by top professionals and paid for. They are entirely, legally mine to do with whatever I please. Photos with celebrities with whom I have collaborated, such as Elton John, are also taken with permission. Naturally, one can't get a casual photo hugging Elton without his permission! --Mlaucke (talk) 08:36, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Image:Lamar Towers.jpg

My image that I uploaded at Lamar Towers has been deleted because some admins think I did not take the picture. Honestly, I find that insulting. Who are they to doubt whether I took the picture or not? I was not even contacted to present my side of the story, the file was simply deleted as far as I can tell. The metadata clearly shows the time, date, camera/phone used, and the coordinates. The reason stated by one of the admins is that he thinks that there is no freedom to take pics in Saudi Arabia. I find that so sad, that people can be so uninformed, and then impose their views on others by censoring them. I have taken literally several thousand pictures in Saudi Arabia in public over the past few years. My parents have been taking pictures in Saudi Arabia in public since the mid 1970s. The picture in question is one of hundreds I took that day while driving on the Red Sea Coast. Should I show you the whole set from that day on my Google Photos account?

Please restore my picture, and also please insert it into Lamar Towers. In fact, I took that picture for the very purpose of putting it on that page, but Wikipedia doesn't let me because I think I don't have enough posts. You have my permission to insert the picture on that page.

Thank you.

No, the photo you uploaded has not been deleted. A file previously uploaded under the same name by another user was deleted back in 2009, because it was most not taken by that uploader. Your photo has been nominated for deletion, but the new deletion discussion has not reached a conclusion yet, so please comment there instead of requesting undeletion of something that hasn't been deleted yet. Note, however, that the claim is not that there is no freedom to take photos in Saudi Arabia, but that there is no freedom of panorama, which means that if you take a photo of a copyrighted work, such as a work of architecture, you need permission from the copyright holder of the depicted work to publish and/or grant a license to the photo.

This picture has been taken by my uncle who was present in the function & had never been published before since it is his personal collection of creations . Before his transition, he had gifted his personal creations to me.

The historic snap is of the same personal creation, uploaded for content addition & enrichment

I was unaware of the proper license to be used, that's why a bonafide mistake took place.

  • "Archives" is not an author. For the future, it would help a lot if you would attribute author accurately when you first upload an image.
  • I can't tell whether you are claiming the work to be in the public domain (unlikely) or that you have inherited your uncle's copyright. If the former, certainly not all photos of public figures are instantly PD, and when the work would pass into the public domain automatically would depend on the date of the photographer's death. If the latter, and you wish to place it in the public domain, then the correct template would be {{PD-heir}}, and it can presumably be temporarily undeleted so that you may do that. - Jmabel ! talk 01:33, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Image:Lighting McQueen.jpg

See Commons:Deletion requests/File:Lighting McQueen.jpg. A skilled automotive customiser has taken a drivable vehicle, shortened the wheelbase and replaced the standard body panels with customised ones that make the vehicle look like a cartoon character, but the car remains drivable. Image is not a sculpture but a {{Useful-object-US}} (or whichever country the photo was taken; it looks to be a motorshow in the UK): one cannot remove the customised body from these vehicles and leave nothing in its place without affecting the utilitarian aspects of the motorcar, as these body parts are not merely decorative - they protect the mechanical workings of the car from the elements, just like the standard body panels would have. As such, the deletion of the image is erroneous. Furthermore, the image does qualify for fair use on en.WP as w:Eddie Paul discusses this specific group of automotive customisations, including this specific vehicle. Clearly, en.WP should be hosting these images locally instead of here if the result of upload here is that legitimate content which is in active use is disappearing in this manner. Please undelete this to upload it to en.WP directly, fair use for w:Eddie Paul as an encyclopaedia article which discusses the making of this specific three-dimensional article.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It seems to me, that you cannot see thru the windows, they are painted over. Even if it has engine, you cannot drive it anyway, when you cannot look out of car. So it is not a drivable car, but piece of art and copyrightable. Taivo (talk) 17:57, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose (emphatically) It seems rather obvious that the intent of the modifier was not to merely modify a utilitarian object to some new design, but instead to explicitly duplicate a copyrightable design as closely as possible. The work at hand (the photograph itself) is essentially a two-dimensional depiction of the copyrighted character. Even if the vehicle itself avoids a copyright violation (about which I an very dubious), the photograph itself does not, as the actual 'depiction' of the vehicle is essentially identical (patently, as much as possible) to the copyrighted cartoon character.

@Skycraper: Even if the text (or the image) can be freely licensed, the image of the actual newspaper publication cannot (other than by the publisher of the newspaper). It is effectively impossible to verify that the uploader of such a scanned image has the right to freely license the images or text that are included, and even if they could license one or the other, the 'composite' work shown (the newspaper page) would still have copyright issues. You need to upload a copy of the original image (not a scan of the newspaper), and have the owner of the copyright in the image verify the licensing per COM:OTRS.

Hallo,

According to the notice which is still visible on my discussion page, this file was deleted because "A source is given, but there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license."

The subject file was a scan of a cover of a book. The book is owned by me, and the scan was also made by me.

I would like to know what I need to do to prove my agreement to license the file under the given license.

I didn't create the cover's design myself, of course. Does this me unauthorised to license its scan under a license of my choice?

Thanks and regards,

File:Bandeira do Município de Jaguariaíva.jpg

The previouly deleted File:Bandeira do Município de Jaguariaíva.jpg Haven't problems with copyright, because is the flag of an municipality of Parana State, in Brazil, which have the official flag defined in the law 1636 of 2005, July 18, which says in her chapter II, Article 3 (translate not official, made by me)

“Art. 3º The Jaguariaíva Municipally Flag is originary form a aggregate of studies, elaborate by the artistic and cutural comunity of jaguariaiva, based in advanced search with base in the description maked by heraldist Arcinoé Antonio Peixoto de Faria, of Municipalist Heraldic Encyclopedia, and present the following characteristics and forms

I - Quartered in saltire, forming the loaded quarters of geometric figures irregularly cubic, green in color, and consist of four yellow bands, arranged two by two, in-band and bar, and starting from a central circle, where the Municipal coat is applied in accordance with the descriptions provided for in Article 9 of this Law.

a) The quarters are loaded with yellow pine brought into abyss

II - The Municipal Flag in accordance with the tradition of Portuguese heraldry, which inherited the canons and rules, obey the general rule laid down for making municipal flags.

III - The coat at the center of the flag represents the Municipal Government and the circle where it is applied is the host city of the municipality.

a) The circle is the heraldic symbol of eternity, for them not to be found beginning and no end.

IV - The tracks departing this circle, dividing the flag into quarters, symbolizes the irradiation of the Municipal Government, to all parts of the territory of the municipality and thus constituted barracks symbolize the existing farms in territorial extension.

V - The green color alludes to the abundant natural forests and plant extraction and is the pastures where cattle are apascentado, symbolizing this context abundance, victory, courtesy and hope.

VI - The yellow color represents great fortune, the splendor and wealth arising from the plant extractive industries and agriculture production from the labors of the field.

VII - The white color is the eternal symbol of peace, labor, prosperity and peaceful coexistence among its inhabitants” (Font: Law 1636/05 - Municipal Chamber of Jaguariaiva)

In chapter 4, article 9 of this same law, is descripted the coat of the municipallity, as is, the image share the same license of File:Brasaojaguariaiva.png, which was maintained in common even being from the same law

because this i think that the exclusion of this image from commons was of no reasoned explanation, based on a legal provision which another picture which is still held shares

no more to treat, wait return

  • You tagged this as {{PD-BrazilGov}}, but it doesn't meet the conditions there. It is post-1983, and is not a text.
  • However, if the rendering is your own, based on the verbal description (vs. someone else's graphics), it should be possible for you to license your rendering.
  • Can someone who's more familiar than I with how to proceed give him some more specific instructions? - Jmabel ! talk 22:12, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Google indicates that this is indeed not a unique depiction of the flag by the uploader, but instead an image taken directly from an official government website... an identical image, at exactly the same resolution. While a independent depiction of the flag as described usually would be ok, just grabbing the image from a website is not (unless you can show that the particular depiction of the flag is PD or freely licensed).

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Benedict XVI coat of arms with Tiara and Pallium.svg

The image in question is a "fastasy" in the official sense, it is true that the coat of arms of Pope Benedict XVI uses a mitre, but there is documentation where the papal tiara has been used. This includes on gifts to the Pope and at the Vatican Gardens. Fry1989 eh? 00:05, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

This UDR does not address the point addressed in the DR close, that the image is not in scope. Fantastical versions of a real COA are not in the scope of Commons unless they have actually been used in some notable context. Please actually cite the contexts in which such a variant CoA was used... if you can show that it's not literally 'fantastical', then it would be in scope... without such evidence, it would be just 'something someone made up' as far as we are concerned.

The only reason cited for deletion has been the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, which has already been determined, may not be invoked as the only reason for deleting an image. Banfield - Amenazas aquí 12:41, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Yo personalmente he decidido mantenerme al margen de todo asunto relacionado con la chapuza del URAA. Alan (talk) 13:32, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Also Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain . Protecting images due to URAA was a good initiative (which I supported, nominating loads of post-1971 pictures), but after this long debate I changed my mind, for being completely disappointed with the results. Nowadays there are a lot of images with the {{Not-PD-US-URAA}} allowed on Commons only because they are PD in their countries of origin. That's the reason because I don't want to give an opinion about the URAA issue. All the whole issue is a bunch of contradictions itself. - Fma12 (talk) 02:04, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
  • It's worth reading carefully what the introduction to COM:URAA currently says, which I think is reasonable. We can't willfully ignore the URAA if we know it applies to something (since it's US law) but an argument that it applies to a particular work should be well-founded enough to at least raise a signifiant doubt, and not the mere allegation.

@Sky-Yoshi 4444: Copyright in artistic works exists by default, under international law, regardless of if you 'claim it'. The work has apparently been previously published online, so you need to contact COM:OTRS and verify that you are the author.

The file was deleted within hours of being uploaded per the logs... how did many websites copy it in the meantime? When they would not have known to look for it? I can't see the image itself, but basically if the graphic existed on the internet somewhere prior to its upload here (or if a derivative, then the original source photo) then you'd have to use the COM:OTRS procedure.

File:Disney-channel-new2015.png

The logo is almost equal to File:Disney Channel 2014 HD.png only that the only difference is that it has two circles above the "I". That will not too for TEXTLOGO. If one considers the discussions in "Commons:Deletion requests/File:Disney Channel 2014 HD.png", the deletion would be wrong. Note: both logos are used in Disney Channel Germany since January 2014 (According to German Wikipedia). --Mega-buses (talk) 21:16, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Disney Enterprises, Inc. has registered a work entitled 'Disney Channel' and described as 'Logo' for copyright. Copyright registration number VAu000575197, date of creation = 2002, date of registration = 2003-02-20. Which logo is this? I note that Wikipedia reports that Disney Channel was launched in 1983, so I assume that there have been other logos prior to 2002 and I don't know whether the 2002 logo is the current one either.
As the logo from 2002 has been registered for copyright, it means that the United States Copyright Office thinks that the 2002 logo is copyrighted, so that logo can't be hosted on Commons. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:25, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
That is the 2002 logo (and this, the wordmark, with two deletion requests with result "kept".) This is the current logo, deleted on commons but more big (and as I said, the difference with File:Disney Channel 2014 HD.png is the two circles in the "I" then, practically no difference.). --Mega-buses (talk) 18:00, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Personally, i would think that his (and Disney Channel 2014 HD.png, if it was nominated) would not be allowable on Commons. While the wordmark itself, as noted in the previous DRs, is merely the words in an 'fancy font', the background (with shading) becomes IMO sufficiently artistic and non-obvious that the courts would probably protect it. Revent (talk) 03:00, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
@Revent: I agree. In fact, I did the first deletion request for Disney Channel 2014 HD.png. Honestly, I would have deleted the file. But with three deletion requests with the result "Kept" I doubt today. I still believe that if one of the files can keep, the other also (and if one of the files can be deleted, the other also). --Mega-buses (talk) 19:25, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Arsenal FC 1920-21.jpg

The file was deleted after being attributed to former Arsenal FC player Bernard Joy (died in 1984) so this photo would be still copyrighted. Nevertheless, as the photo was published on Forward, Arsenal!, a book written by Joy in 1953, there are no credits about who took the pictures (see book pages here). Furthermore, I could not find any source stating that Joy was photographer apart of being a journalist/writer. Fma12 (talk) 19:13, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Hmm.. Joy was born in 1911, so it's dubious that he actually took the photo... he was at most ten years old at the time. It's a matter of if the image was truly 'anonymous', or just unattributed in the specific book. Judgement call, really... if being strict, I would say that unless it can be shown that the image was truly 'anonymous (by the intent of the photographer) and not just unattributed, then we would have to 'assume' that the image is under copyright until 2060 or so (that's the most conservative estimate). Really, without evidence that it is actually PD, it's questionable to assume it. Revent (talk) 23:37, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Well... the UK law is the {{PD-UK-unknown}} tag. It's not quite the same as "anonymous" in the EU. Normally we do like to see the initial publication... if it's unattributed there, then yes I think that is anonymous. As for if that depends on the intent of the author, I doubt we have that level of proof for most of our {{Anonymous-EU}} works, so I don't think that's a fair standard (and at least per the EU directives, works for hire are supposed to be 70 years from publication unless the author is disclosed on the initial publications). But publications down the line which lose attribution which may have originally be there... that is tougher. If the 1953 book was really the initial publication, then I think it would be anonymous, but the EU copyright would also last until 2024 (and the US copyright would last until 1949). If the book was not the first publication, then it gets muddier -- not sure we can apply PD-UK-unknown without knowing a bit more of its publication history. Granted, if this the same as en:File:Arsenal FC 1920-21.jpg... team photos generally were published right away and it would not surprise me if it was anonymous. I think I see another version of the image here (direct image here). That looks like a postcard-type thing, and shows clear indications of being published (the caption). So, I think this was published in 1920 almost certainly, which would make it PD-1923 at least. There is no credit on the front, but the back is not shown, so we may be just short of the info we need. Odds are high it was anonymous, but high enough? Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:32, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
@Clindberg: Yes, it's the same image. As is usually the case, you described the issue better than I managed. By 'intent of the photographer', what I am pointing at is specifically that 'we don't know' doesn't make a work anonymous, we need to know that the creator really didn't assert a claim of authorship (that might later have been lost) at some point.
As far as using the 'cannot be ascertained by reasonable enquiry' criteria to call it unknown, the official guidance on what is needed to make that kind of a claim (see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/orphan-works-diligent-search-guidance-for-applicants) is pretty extensive... I think we should be very conservative about using it. Revent (talk) 07:48, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
I believe that is the guidance on orphan works, i.e. works which are known to still be under copyright but the copyright owner is unknown or cannot be located. It is not at all the same thing as PD-UK-unknown where the copyright has expired. Much more care needs to be taken when using an under-copyright work under the new orphan works rules they have (enough that Commons wouldn't use it at all, I don't think). The real question is if the photo was ever attributed (or really, ever attributed before 1990). It's an interesting situation, since originally the photo would have expired 50 years after creation, so was PD in 1971. The EU restorations may not have really applied if the author was unknown -- the 70 year term would still have been expired at that point so it may well have never regained a copyright. Did the book this is from give credits to other photographs (indicating they were in the habit of naming authors where known, thus if not named for this one then probably an indication this was anonymous) or did they not bother crediting anyone? I have to say, I'd lean towards Symbol support vote.svg Support on this one, as team photographs would be a work for hire and I'd think most of the time the photographer is not credited (particularly in that era). You would think the author of the book had some access to Arsenal FC archives and if anyone would know the author it would be them. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:23, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
(nods) I just rather pointed there as an illustration of the fact that they want you to 'look really hard'. I've seen a document elsewhere (though I can't seem to hunt it back down) on what constituted a 'reasonable enquiry', specifically, and it was the same kind of long checklist. This is almost certainly fine, though, I think... what I said about about 'if I was being strict'. Looking at what I can see of the book on Google, the copyright page only specifically attributes the cover photo... there is a 'list of plates' with no attributions, and they don't seem to be given in the image captions either. You are probably correct that this was an official team photo taken as a work for hire, and originally published contemporaneously, especially given the copy you found on that blog with the much wider crop. Revent (talk) 00:40, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
What happens if there is a dispute between someone who uses the material and someone who claims to be the rights holder, if one of them claims that the author is unknown whereas the other one claims that the author is known? In Sweden, I believe that it is enough for the user of the material to claim that the author is anonymous, and then the copyright claimant has to present evidence that the identity of the author has been disclosed publicly if the copyright claimant doesn't agree. This could of course result in a surprise for the user of the material if the user believed that the author was anonyous whereas in fact he was not. COM:PRP of course requires checking that it is unlikely that a copyright claimant would be able to present such evidence in a court.
In the UK case, I've got the impression from Commons deletion discussions that the user of material needs to present evidence that a 'reasonable enquiry' was inconclusive on who the author is, or am I misunderstanding something? If the user of the material is required to present evidence that a 'reasonable enquiry' was inconclusive, then we have to require that the uploader of {{PD-UK-unknown}} material presents all information from the 'reasonable enquiry' that a British court could possibly request, for example a properly filled in checklist. --Stefan4 (talk) 14:33, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
As it was said, the photo was in fact PD in 1971 so there is no reason to keep it deleted. Moreover, the book does not credited any author neither to its images, so the author remains unknown to date. Fma12 (talk) 15:02, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

- Fma12 (talk) 15:02, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

The European Union copyright term for anonymous works is 70 years from publication if the work was published within 70 years from creation, and this was published at least around 40 years after creation, so the EU copyright term runs for 70 years from publication if the author is anonymous. When the United Kingdom implemented the EU copyright rules on 1 January 1996, the copyright to all photos were restored unless a) the copyright already had expired in all other EU countries, or b) the EU copyright term already had expired. Spain appears to have used a copyright term of 80 years from the death of the anonymous photographer, so the photograph was presumably still copyrighted in Spain, which was at that time an EU country. Furthermore, if the first publication was in the book from the 1950s, then the EU anonymous copyright term hasn't expired yet (it expires 70 years after publication if the photographer counts as 'anonymous'). This photograph then falls into the category of works whose copyright was restored in the United Kingdom on 1 January 1996. If the book from the 1950s wasn't the first publication, then we need to find out where it was published first since there might be a credit line in that other publication which reveals the identity of the photographer, thus changing the term to life+70 years. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:17, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
Looking around, I did find where Arsenal has the same photo on their website, but they actually source it to a commercial picture library (Colorsport). Revent (talk) 17:11, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
The link I showed was almost certainly a contemporary publication (i.e. from 1920). It has a caption style typical of postcards of that period (and no author credit). This is a formal team photo; those are virtually always published. It would make sense for a picture library like Colorsport to have collected such publicity photos. Since an anonymous photo published (or more accurately "made available to the public" which is a looser standard) in 1920 would have expired in 1991, its term even by the new EU rules would have been expired by 1996 and so would have not been restored. The main question really is if it was actually anonymous (i.e. was the author publicly known before 1990). Even today, the team website (which would likely be the copyright owner) does not mention the author. Neither did the book apparently, and it was still copyrighted at the time. I'd feel more comfortable if I could see the back of that publicity photo or postcard or whatever it is, but... I hardly ever see author credits on that type of photo, and there does appear to be a copy without a credit on the front (even when a caption was written in). Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:42, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
@Clindberg: Yeah, I was just noting that I had found a bit more information, in case someone wanted to just contact them and ask about it. Since Colorsport is apparently the official team photographer, providing all the website images as part of the deal would not be unlikely. I'm not going to personally object if someone wants to undelete this... it's not 'proven beyond a doubt', but pretty unlikely that it's still in copyright. Revent (talk) 06:46, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Colorsport was founded in 1969 according to their "About" page; they do collect images I'm sure but it seems rather unlikely they would be the copyright owner. Also, the author would have had to be generally known before 1991 (not unearthed today by looking at private records) to be a 70pma term. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:18, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Seal of Juneau,Alaska.svg

For the United States, this image is absolutely below the Threshold of Originality, no question about it. Fry1989 eh? 17:27, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

That is almost certainly above the threshold. Selection and arrangement is copyrightable at the very least. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:41, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
No it's not! How do you feel it is above anything here when the seal is nothing but text and simple geometry? The mountain is two triangles, the waves are a simple repetitive pattern, there's nothing there above threshold. Fry1989 eh? 18:03, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
It's not just simple geometry. The Copyright Office decisions go a little deeper than that. Mostly, there is a "selection and arrangement" copyright where an arrangement of uncopyrightable shapes may itself be copyrightable. The mountains may be fairly simple, but I'm not sure they are simple enough. The combination of all of that probably exceeds the threshold. (Look more closely as the decision in the CCC example on that page -- there was a version of that surrounded by a few lines which did get a copyright registration. The line is low) That said... I do forget these things are also defined in state or city law and therefore the selection and arrangement may be PD-EdictGov to begin with. I do see a law here which includes pretty close to that representation. I doubt the changes from that version amount to copyright. So, I could see undeletion on that score. Dates from 1970 as well so there may also be PD-US-no_notice representations. But the design was PD from the outset, as were most of the arrangement decisions, so... I could see undeletion as PD-EdictGov. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:37, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it is about simple imagery. Simple geometry placed alongside more simple geometry doesn't make it complicated geometry. There are examples on the TOO page of denied copyrights that are more complicated than this image. Fry1989 eh? 02:37, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
It depends where you place it -- the placement itself can indeed be grounds for copyright. There is a threshold for that as well, and if this was a private logo I would still lean against it. The arrangement here is far more complex than anything on the example page. The second logo here is copyrightable, for example. The difference here to me is the PD-EdictGov which covers most of the normally-copyrightable aspects. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:49, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
No, it doesn't. Explain to me what part of the seal you believe brings it about TOO? As I explained, there is nothing there that isn't derivable from simple work. The mountain is two triangles over-lapping and the waves are a simple repetitive scalloped pattern. The rest is nothing but text. Your example is not comparable, because File:CarCreditCity.png is not simple geometry, there is no simple geometric pattern that could create those shapes. You are wrong on this, absolutely wrong. Fry1989 eh? 16:36, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Carl. Symbol delete vote.svg Keep deleted per COM:TOO. Alan (talk) 17:33, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
File:CarCreditCity.png is actually not copyrightable; it is variations on a utilitarian object (the letter "C"). In the example I pointed out to you, it's actually the rest of the lines in the second logo which make it copyrightable. So those lines are above the threshold. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:45, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Every drawing is at some level derived from simple geometric lines or patterns. It's not the fact that something is made up of simple geometric shapes... something has to be only simple geometric shapes. It does not take much enhancement to be copyrightable. Secondly, there is a "selection and arrangement" copyright. If you take 10 squares and place them in arbitrary positions, the result is most likely copyrightable -- not the squares themselves, but the specific arrangement. If someone makes a "best songs" compilation album, the selection and ordering of the songs on that album is actually a valid copyright independent of the songs themselves. An arrangement of all-centered and stacked items would not be copyrightable, but if there is creativity in the arrangement, then there can be. If you want to go more in-depth, you can read the chapters of the Copyright Compendium, which is what the U.S. Copyright Office uses to guide their inspectors when it comes to allowing a copyright registration. There is obviously a lot of gray area, and the content is not legally binding (though is based on case law and judges are likely to follow their logic), but it's incredibly helpful to get a sense as to what is and is not copyrightable. For this case, you can look at section 906.1 of Chapter 900. As it notes, Generally, the U.S. Copyright Office will not register a work that merely consists of common geometric shapes unless the author’s use of those shapes results in a work that, as a whole, is sufficiently creative. They will look at the work as a whole, including each element, and the selection and arrangement thereof, to make a decision. While it is common to use triangles like that to represent mountains, is that exact representation (the specific relative size and arrangement of the two triangles) a common symbol itself? It's not the same thing as just a triangle. I don't think it would be copyrightable on its own, but it does start to add complexity to the arrangement of the design as a whole. The location of the star is not a standard arrangement. The relative sizes of the stripes of water is not necessarily standard. The way the top water stripe is shortened to make way for the mountain symbol is not a common arrangement. The question is whether all of those things, plus possibly the placement of the text, as a whole add up to a copyrightable selection, arrangement, or coordination. While it's probably not too far from the line, my guess is that it would be enough. I could be wrong, but it's far from obvious. The examples in the Compendium are made to be obvious; you can read through some of the appeals board decisions to look at stuff which is more borderline. You can read the specific reasoning in each case. Unfortunately there are relatively few which are overturned on appeal (most ones worthy of it would have been overturned earlier in the appeals process), so most examples are of ones below the threshold. However, if you note the arrangement on all our example images is very simplistic -- either all centered, or reading like lines of text, or text in a circle, etc. I don't see anything which has this level of complexity in the arrangement, nor do I remember any in reading any of the appeals cases. Since I have not seen similar examples ruled to be ineligible, it's my sense that something like this probably is eligible. However, since that arrangement is PD-EdictGov to begin with, if the SVG is basically the same as the one you linked above, then I would Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion on those grounds. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:42, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
You're both wrong. Fry1989 eh? 17:13, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. What do we have here? Two green triangles, two concentric circles, one five-branched star, a lot of horizontal blue lines and some text. Even I am able to reproduce the logo, so I consider it simple. Taivo (talk) 17:48, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
@ChrisiPK: (pinging deleting admin) I'm tempted to just undelete this, as 'copyrightable' but not actually under copyright per PD-EdictGov (which seems to be the consensus) but it's worth poking the deleting admin for an opinion first, since the original DR had much less input.

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Louvre Pyramid

Hello,

I would like you to watch the last Deletion request of the page Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Louvre Pyramid. It was closed last September 8th, with a complete deletion of all proposed files. Of course some of them had, unfortunately, no chance of being kept, the Louvre Pyramid being the main subject. But this is not the case of all pictures. In the DR I suggested to keep these ones: File:Louvre Pyramid construction 1987.jpg, File:Louvre (8271748749).jpg, File:Louvre at dusk.JPG, File:Louvre at dusk2.JPG, File:Vue de la pyramide, Louvre.jpg, File:France-000100 - Louvre Museum (14524274070).jpg, File:From Inside the Lourve - panoramio.jpg, File:Le Louvre IMG 20141106 213829 (15576336810).jpg, File:Le Louvre IMG 20141106 213851 (15576336540).jpg, File:Le Louvre IMG 20141106 213904 (15759267771).jpg, File:Louvre (4856978474).jpg, File:Louvre by day centered.jpg, File:Louvre France.jpg, File:Louvre Museum - entrance.jpg, File:Louvre pyramid 2.JPG, File:Louvre-Bannenhaff-mat-Pyramid--w.jpg and File:Pyramide du Louvre et la cour Napoléon.jpg. For the first one, the subject is the construction and the pyramid is not completely built on that, moreover this is a general view of the Louvre Museum at that time, the pyramid is De Minimis for me. For all the other ones I quoted, they are general overviews of the museum, the pyramid is not the main subject and therefore is De Minimis too. The Louvre Building is too old to be copyrighted, the museum has been inaugurated in 1793 and the building was a Palace before being a museum. Then when the Pyramid is De Minimis, the Louvre Building is in the public domain. Thank you very much for your help. Jeriby (talk) 07:42, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I stand behind my decision. None of them was de minimis. Objects under construction can also be protected with copyright, general views can also be protected with copyright. Taivo (talk) 17:03, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Leite de Vasconcelos.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: I would like to request access to the description page, in order to help to fix the licensing info for this 3 years old upload with at least 3 autopatrolled revisions. I'm not blaming anyone, but the deletion summary provided automatically is unhelpful for this, specially because that the uploader warning was for unsourced media.

Further info: this image is eligible for {{PD-Portugal-URAA}}, fitting on criteria photographic works, works deemed to be photographic works or works of applied art created before 1971 (the person depicted on picture died on 1941). Bibliographical reference to prove that the person in image is the person we claim to be depicted is [5]. Lugusto 19:28, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support At the very least, it should not have been speedy deleted, although the previous license was not correct (or at least there is no evidence for it). Portugal is one of the EU countries that did not implement the EU directives until after the URAA date had passed (they implemented them in March 1997 it looks like), so their previous law would govern the terms of restored works it looks like. And indeed, it appears they had a 25 year from creation term for photographic works. So this work should have remained PD in the US all along.

File:James Joyce with Sylvia Beach at Shakespeare & Co Paris 1920.jpg actually not by Gisèle Freund.

In 1920 Gisèle Freund was 12 years old and still in Germany (she came to Paris only in 1931), so how could she be the author? Most likely this photograph merely belonged to her collection and there was a confusion between authorship and ownership. - Olybrius (talk) 09:44, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

According to this page, the photo was indeed taken by Freund but in 1938, which makes a lot more sense. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:33, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Permission_to_edit_or_submit_to_Wikimedia_projects

I created the essay Commons:Permission_to_edit_or_submit_to_Wikimedia_projects on January 12, 2013, and amended it four days later. I don't have subsequent edits that anyone else may have done. I have a text based on my contributions for anyone who wants to see it. I'd like the deleted essay to be temporarily undeleted into my user space or elsewhere for other people, including nonadmins, to consider. I'm treating this undeletion request separately from that for another essay because the different content raises somewhat different issues.

Some people are under legal restrictions that affect their ability to contribute to Wikimedia projects, even though the Wikimedia Foundation is not imposing those constraints. But they're still part of the law and this essay addressed that and how, possibly, to cope with those limits.

Law does not need updating unless it affirmatively changes. In the U.S. at least, law remains in effect until amended, repealed, overturned, or some such legal action takes place. Exceptions exist; for instance, a statute may have a sunset provision, a peace treaty may have been completely carried out, or a service contract may expire. But this essay was about law that is likely to be with us in one form or another for many years to come. When occasion calls, updates may be included, but if the essay remains valid as is then no editing may be needed.

It was for the benefit of Wikimedia and its contributors. Whether it was used or not is not determinable, since reading it is all that was necessary for it to be useful and there usually is no record of whether anyone read anything. It addressed a legal issue that is necessary for editing on Wikimedia without legal risks for the contributor. The Wikimedia Foundation is not generally at risk for the issue raised in the essay, but a contributor may be, and it's useful to such contributors to have the issue aired and discussed. Other contributors, probably most contributors, are not affected and can, of course, ignore the essay. If the essay was not clear enough, that is a different issue not justifying deletion. I'll be glad to edit for clarity.

A view found elsewhere is that we should not state some things that would limit what editors might do, since editors should contribute freely. But law is binding even f we don't know about it, and not knowing about it is how people get into trouble.

Even just for photographs, omitting this information once known is misleading even to a careful editor who looks to Wikimedia for guidance.

In response to the past undeletion review (I was never notified that undeletion was pending), the essay was relevant to all Wikimedia projects, including Commons. Therefore, Wikipedia is effectively offsite from Commons and too narrow a venue, likely to be missed by editors on other projects, and posting there is inappropriate when Commons is the venue for Wikimedia issues. No update to its content was needed and, as far as I know, there was no proposal to edit content or criticism of it being outdated. Its content is still as valid now as it was when the essay was written and probably should have been online a lot earlier.

The shortcuts/redirects mentioned (as ten but actually eleven) in the nomination statement and deleted were from Commons:OKTOEDIT, Commons:OKTOWRITE, Commons:OKTOSUBMIT, Commons:Permission_to_edit_Wikimedia_projects, Commons:Permission_to_submit_to_Wikimedia_projects, Commons:Permission_to_edit_or_submit_to_Wikimedia, Commons:Permission_to_edit_Wikimedia, Commons:Permission_to_submit_to_Wikimedia, Commons:Permission_to_edit_or_submit, Commons:Permission_to_edit, and Commons:Permission_to_submit. All were reasonable, based on my knowledge of editing elsewhere in Wikimedia but also likely useful to Commons because of normal ways that users would type an essay title from memory. More shortcuts and redirects could have been sensible; I happened to stop at these. That may be more than other editors have time to create, but our purpose is to be useful to readers.

The deletion policy has nothing supporting any of the deletions, speedy or regular. The essay's creation and availability on Commons is within the scope of Commons for allowable pages ("[t]ext relating to Commons projects, help, policy, guidelines, licensing, copyright information and so on"). If Commons is not the venue for content applicable to all of Wikimedia, please indicate which venue I should use. The essay's content is important for all of Wikimedia, thus in no way was it out of scope. I believe this essay and its shortcuts and redirects warrant restoration into Commons (with one spelling correction). Discussion pages, if any, should also be restored. Editing is always appropriate, and the discussion pages should be open to aid that purpose.

Nick Levinson (talk) 01:17, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

I think the content was moved to m:User:JesseW/Permission to edit or submit to Wikimedia projects. If it was in the Commons: namespace rather than in the User: namespace, it's certainly eligible for a deletion discussion to see if editors feel it is out of scope, or not helpful. If it is applicable to all of Wikimedia, then it may well be beyond the scope of Commons itself. Meta might be a better project for it. Carl Lindberg (talk) 06:44, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Trs 20150623 milwaukee jp 105.jpg

Hello. This photo was deleted because user Miss-Sophie requested its deletion with the following reason "Taken from the website iorr.org without obvious permission by the photographer. I doubt, the Wikimedia uploader is the photographer Jim Pietryga (no original image in high resolution, only copied from the forum)". I don't visit Wikipedia and Wikimedia very often so I never saw the deletion request, but I will say my opinion now: Yes, I am not the photographer Jim Pietryga, but I did contact Mr Pietryga to give permission to Wikimedia for uploading this file and he did send an e-mail to "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org" containing the exact words from this article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Declaration_of_consent_for_all_enquiries (but the red and bold parts were replaced by his info). So I don't understand how can user Miss-Sophie accuse me of violating the copyright permission when in fact I did contact the photographer and he did send an e-mail with his permission to use the photo. Can anybody explain this and allow me to upload the photo again? Thanks. IksDe (talk) 18:00, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

This file is necessary to remain here until the Government answer the request, but JuTa deleted the file when a few days are remaing to get an answer (and is still in researching).

Does the transparency request point to this particular Commons URL and can't be changed? Or can the file be uploaded elsewhere and have something point to that (even making the Commons page a redirect or at least have some information on where to go)? If it's needed by a Wikimedia chapter though, and there's no other way, maybe it's a good idea to undelete if we can find a way to make a restoration temporary. But it would be best to not have the file available on Commons if there is no license. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:53, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes, the Transparency information points to the specific URL of the file. Unfortunately I didn't sended a copy of this file as attached within the request. Therefore, a good idea is, as you mentioned, upload the file elsewhere, and I'll update the request if necessary. Anyway, the Ministerio de Justicia may have already a copy of the file, but I still need to this file be restored, even elsewhere. --Amitie 10g (talk) 05:17, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Bernd Marin.png

Dear Sir/Madam!

Recently a photo, which I wanted to use in a Wikipedia article has been deleted. The file in question is a picture of an Austrian social scientist. The reason for deletion is, that it missed permission information. This is not true. I provided a link to the source: http://www.apa-fotoservice.at/galerie/7042, where permissions are clearly stated. It's in German so maybe this is the issue:

Nutzungsrecht Bild(er) frei zur redaktionellen Verwendung im Zusammenhang mit Berichterstattung

which translates to:

Right of use Picture(s) free for editorial use in combination with reporting

I would therefore kindly ask to undelete the photo. Thank you!

Best regards, René Czerny

--René Czerny (talk) 10:36, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

@René Czerny: Hi,
"Free for editorial use" is not sufficient for Commons. A permission with a free license is necessary. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:53, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
@Yann: Hi Yann,
Thank you for the response. We had an email conversation with the right holder and they sold us the rights to use it on Wikipedia. You can find it here. It is between the Austrian Press Agency (APA - Mrs. Rosen), Unique Relations (Mrs. Pichler), Werner Bregar and me. Summary: Mr. Bregar asks to use the photo. Mrs. Rosen answers, that it is possible to get the rights to use it on Wikipedia, given that Mrs. Pichler gives here OK. In the TOP-Email Mrs. Pichler gives her OK.

I guess this is proof enough, that we have the rights to use the photo? Let me know, if you need anything else. Best, René René Czerny (talk) 14:47, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

I can't read it, but see COM:OTRS for the type of rights statement we would need. We cannot accept Wikipedia-only works; they must be licensed for anyone to use it in any circumstances; that is what "free" is (see Commons:Licensing). If they want to license it {{CC-BY}} or {{CC-BY-SA}} or something along those lines it would be OK. Understandably, many rights holders would not want to do that.

File:Michael Laucke With Andres Segovia At Met Museum, New York For PBS TV.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: This concerns a photo where the following facts have been ascertained:

-The photo was created by an employee of Mr. Laucke as part of that person's job, (a work for hire). -The photo was taken by an assisant of Mr. Laucke, called Christine Arenella of New York -Mr. Laucke certified that he own alls rights pertaining to this photo. -Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication is attributed whereby Mr. Laucke waived all rights, thus all rights are released and the photo may be freely used. So what could the problem be? Natalie.Desautels (talk) 13:51, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

If the photo appears elsewhere on the Internet, the license must be indicated at that source, or Mr. Laucke needs to go through the COM:OTRS process and send a private email with the permission (template is on that link). We can't tell the difference of someone making fake username to upload pictures, though that's unlikely here (it has happened before, I think). Even if the OTRS email simply clarifies that the user account is indeed Mr. Laucke, that should be enough to clarify that any licenses made by that account are valid, though it would be good to note the work-for-hire situation (where the copyright owner is different than the human author).

This author is missing at sea and hasn't been seen in years. He was a friend and a community leader in my city. He has no family that owns the book picture and no publishing company owns the title. This book I helped him develop and I personal know that there is my copy rights being held in his name around this book or the picture. Jbignell (talk) 23:49, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

You're assuming the if he dies, the copyright is automatically transferred to you. Is this the case, or would he have to transfer it to you in his will or something like that? (Heck, even I don't know the answer). Hop on Bananas (talk) 14:07, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

The_Babys - 2014.png

This photo of The Babys is not copywritten. This is the current lineup of the band, and as such should be able to be on this wiki page...
— Preceding unsigned comment added by TheBabysFan (talk • contribs) 21:07, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Both in the US and the UK, modern works are automatically copyrighted for the life of the author (photographer in this case) plus 70 years. So yes, a photo like that would be under copyright -- that is the law, and we can't get around it. We would need a free license for the work, given by the band directly via the COM:OTRS procedure. Also, Commons cannot host works using a fair use rationale -- such images would need to be uploaded to local projects (such as the English Wikipedia) directly, if they qualify for the fair use guidelines there. "Publicity" photographs are also not "free" -- see Commons:Copyright rules by subject matter#Press photos. Carl Lindberg (talk) 06:00, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Frances Benjamin Johnston, full-length portrait, seated in front of fireplace, 1896.jpg

This self-portait by U.S. photographer Frances Benjamin Johnston was created in 1896 as is from the Library of Congress' Johnston (Frances Benjamin) Collection. The LoC assembled the collection via copyright deposits, gifts of the photographer, and the purchase of material from her estate. The LoC Rights And Restrictions page for this collection states "There are no known restrictions on the photographs taken by Frances Benjamin Johnston". If undeleted, I intend to set the license to the {{PD-Johnston}} copyright tag. It looks like the file was deleted after its "PD-old" tag was removed. —RP88 (talk) 02:58, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support per that description. License tags should never be removed -- they result in a bot adding "no license", i.e. marked for speedy deletion (for no valid reason usually), and the uploader's page is never even notified so the only person who gets a chance to look at it is an overworked admin batch-processing a maintenance category which is usually new images without licenses. To me, the bot should not mark such images which have effectively been vandalized -- if possible restore the deleted license and add {{Disputed}} or something like that. If a file has a bad license, it should be nominated for deletion. I don't think removing a license (even if invalid) is ever proper procedure, and the bot magnifies that issue.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose — If this work is indeed the same image as ru:Файл:Sir John Woodroffe.jpg, then it is photo NPG x42937 at the National Portrait Gallery. The NPG says the photo was taken on 25 October 1928 by Lafayette studio, so it can't use the {{PD-1923}} tag. Even if we assume the author died immediately after creating it or that the author is anonymous, it was still protected by copyright in the UK in 1996, so it can't use the {{PD-1996}} tag. So I agree with Prosfilaes, it appears this photo, at the earliest, will not be in the public domain in the U.S. until 1928 + 95 + 1 = 2024. —RP88 (talk) 17:57, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

These logos are not from Russia, they are from Sweden and are textbook cases of PD-textlogo. Fry1989 eh? 17:12, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Whoops, awkward error. I intended to write Sweden because my logic doesn't apply to Russia unless we know something more about when a work is copyrighted in Russia. But this error doesn't change the outcome. Europe has a low TOO in general. Natuur12 (talk) 17:21, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment European countries have very varying thresholds of originality. I have not heard of any logo TOO cases in Swedish courts, so it isn't trivial to tell whether any particular logo would be fine or not. Nordic countries have generally written copyright laws together, so it may help to look at the sections for other Nordic countries at COM:TOO. --Stefan4 (talk) 18:56, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
This is barely complicated at all, except for the stylised H. It's not a signature, it's not a unique font, it's barely changed at all. I am extremely doubtful it is above TOO for much of Europe. The same applies to several other Viasat channels. Fry1989 eh? 01:33, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
@Stefan4: One of the problems of our TOO section about European countries is that we referre to ancient court verdicts from before the Court of Justice of the European Union did some rulings about the threshold of originality. See for exmple this and this document. Morale of my story is that the copyright in th EU is being harmonised. Regarding the question when a work is copyrighted is: it has been harmonised over the entire EU. Unfortuanatly some countries interpertate it wrongly or supreme courts even violate European law by mistake. Stating that European countries have various threshold of originalities is a blast from the past and basing when something is TOO or not on verdicts when court cases are either to old or likely to be overturned by the Court of Justice of the European Union is wrong. Natuur12 (talk) 12:26, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I've not heard of the first case before, so I'll have to read that one. In the second case, the court states that the originality criterion to be used is whether the material contains 'the expression of the intellectual creation of the[...] author'. The court notes that 'it is for the national court to make this determination', suggesting that different national courts are allowed to interpret the wording differently, thereby allowing different thresholds of originality in different countries. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:13, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes of course, otherwise people have to go to the Court of Justice of the European Union for such copyright cases if local courts are not allowed to interpertate their wordings. However, their interpertation has to be in line with the wording of the Court of Justice of the European Union. There can be slight differences but every court can rule differently. Two judges from the same court could rule differently when the case is borderline. This however, does not mean that great differences should excist and those differences can be overturned if a local court is out of line. At least that is the theory. Of course the theory differs from the real situation but that doesn't mean we should treat indenvidual court cases like some holy bible as happens every now and than. Not everyone agrees with those opinion but when their are no local court cases we should stick with what the Court of Justice of the European Union wrote. Natuur12 (talk) 17:33, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Hm... Looking at this case (which is later than the other one), I get the impression that the European Court of Justice only mandates an originality-based threshold (as opposed to a sweat of the brow-based threshold), but that countries are given some liberty in choosing their preferred originality-based threshold. --Stefan4 (talk) 18:00, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I think we should follow the actual situation, which at the moment means that different countries may apply thresholds differently. Rulings by EU judges will probably change things over time and make countries closer on such matters, but even reading those links, it is still up to national courts to determine a certain amount of it. Secondly, the EU directives basically mandate a minimum level of protection; it might be possible that countries can still protect items which do not qualify as a "work" under the EU directive (such as simple photographs) and those laws can still make something "unfree". Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:35, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
In order to create protection for other things (such as simple photographs), EU countries are required to create a formal neighbouring right (and also inform some EU organisation about this, I believe). But yes, EU countries can do this. --Stefan4 (talk) 21:11, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

File:Phoenixsee Bodenprofil.JPG

Die im Betreff genannte Grafik File:Phoenixsee Bodenprofil.JPG habe ich selbst erstellt mithilfe von Powerpoint, das ich anschließend als jpg abgespeichert habe. Die Informationen stammen aus den so genannten "Vermarktungsunterlagen" zu den Grundstücken am so genannten 'Phönixsee' in Dortmund / Germany: http://www.wohnen-am-phoenixsee.de/upgrade_flash.html Die ergänzende Grenzwerttabelle neben dem Bodenprofil stammt aus einem Besprechungsprotokoll der Stadt Dortmund, das ebenfalls ohne lesbare, einfache Adresse im Internet vorhanden ist.

Aufgrund meines Studiums und entsprechender Berufserfahrung habe ich die in der Grafik zusammengestellten Informationen aus den ca. 20 Dokumenten zusammengesucht und graphisch dargestellt, so dass auch Laien verstehen können, dass der Boden, auf dem Wohneigentum (!) erstellt wurde, mit Schwermetallen - insbesondere Chrom - belastet ist.

File:RichardWhite.jpg

I just noticed your deletion of File:RichardWhite.jpg. I think it's probably wrong. The rationale seems to be the visibility of artwork (part of a totem pole), but this photo is in the U.S. from before the time work was copyrighted by default. I've literally never heard of a totem pole in that era being copyrighted.

Sorry I didn't weigh in before this was deleted; I hadn't noticed the deletion request. - Jmabel ! talk 14:34, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Copied from my User talk page to take a consensus decision. Alan (talk) 15:26, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment If the totem pole lacks a copyright notice and if in 1968 (i.e. pre-1978) it was located in a public location where people could make copies, then the totem pole is in the public domain (i.e. {{PD-US-no notice}}), see discussion at Commons:Public art and copyrights in the US. I suppose a contemporary totem pole might have a copyright notice, but I've never seen a copyright notice (or even heard of one) on an original totem pole that was the creation of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast. It would be helpful to know where this photo was taken and some details about the depicted totem pole. —RP88 (talk) 18:32, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Photo is outdoors in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle, Washington (I think Occidental between S Main & S Washington Street, before the block was pedestrianized). The only thing readily apparent about the pole is that it was work in progress at the time. The upload was by User:Fosterwhite, presumably someone at Foster White Gallery, the successor to Richard Foster's gallery that is visible in the background of the photo, which is primarily a photo of Richard White. The photo dates, as you say, from 1968. In the extremely unlikely event that there is a copyright issue about the totem pole, it would seem to me that we could easily solve that with a Gaussian blur rather than remove the image entirely. But, again, and in accord with what RP88 said, it seems only infinitesimally likely that there is any sort of copyright on the pole. - Jmabel ! talk 21:38, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Is the deleted image by any chance this photo of Richard White? That work-in-progress totem looks an awful lot like Sun and Raven by still living artist Pasco Duane (created in 1973, installed in its current location in Occidental Square in 1987). The Smithsonian's SIRIS Art Inventories Catalog has a record of this sculpture (IAS WA000583). SIRIS indicates it was in Richard White's collection from 1974-1985. It was originally commissioned for Expo '74. After the expo it was relocated to his restaurant "Kiana Lodge". It was installed at its current location in Occidental Square in 1987. SIRIS is usually very good about noting all inscriptions and copyright notices, and they indicate that it is unsigned and make no mention of a copyright notice. If the totem is indeed Sun and Raven then it is in the public domain. —RP88 (talk) 23:00, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

The author of the flyer is different than the author of the blog, so the author of the blog has no rights to release the flyer under any kind of license. The use of the flyer is certainly fair dealing in that context, but we still can't upload it to Commons. Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:06, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

I have permission from the subject, Kate Elizabeth Hallam, to use the pic you deleted from her Wikipedia page.

@London2019: If I was you, I'd be more concerned about that the enwiki article is about to be deleted at AfD than about the image. Regardless, as you are not the 'owner' of the image, but merely have permission to use it, the owner of the image needs to verify that the image is properly licensed per the process at COM:OTRS. The OTRS agent will request undeletion once the licensing is verified. Revent (talk) 07:20, 28 October 2015 (UTC)
A permission for you to use the content in question is not sufficient for it to be hosted on Commons. For that, the copyright holder (who is usually the photographer rather than the subject) would have to agree to publish the content under a license that allows anyone to use, modify and redistribute it for any purpose, including commercial purposes.

File:Word for wine in europe.png

The original file (Word for Wine in European languages.svg) allowed any modification or reuse of the file.

Also, a major problem, with that file, was its .svg format that complicated any update we wanted to deliver. Thus its transition to a .png. Finally, it included a major error on Tunisia, that was not researched properly, see Tunisian Arabic for further information.Tounsimentounes (talk) 10:28, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

Not a copyvio, but see Help:SVG on why using PNG is not recommended. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:36, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Vista parcial noturna B. dos Professores, Morro do Carmo e Todos os Santos, Coronel Fabriciano MG.JPG

Please undelete this file per my rational here. The file is used in a collage kept during another DR because there was external use and therefor a courtesy deletion isn't reasonable anymore. The file clearly does have educational value and it was used via that collega. I asked @Materialscientist: at his talk page to restore this file but he didn't answer my message while he did made some time consuming edits here and at the English Wikipedia. Therefor I am making this request here. Also pinging @HVL: who requested deletion of the file. Natuur12 (talk) 16:49, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

I do not see "educational value" in there and in a outdated collage. But if the problem of the exclusion of "File:Vista parcial noturna B. dos Professores, Morro do Carmo e Todos os Santos, Coronel Fabriciano MG.JPG" is your inclusion on the collage, only cite my name as author of the image in the collage. I load this photo when I was a kid and now I should have the right to reconsider. --HVL talk 17:03, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
You may ask for a courtesy deletion but the TOU prohibits a revocation of the license. Natuur12 (talk) 17:07, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support. Well it is "in use" out of wikimedia projects. First, we are the original source (not from Flickr etc.). And it have educational value (not promotional or selfie of a teenager etc.) but not very good photograph. -- Geagea (talk) 01:24, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm still looking for the relevance of this... --HVL talk 11:07, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

The logo was flagged as potential copywright violation. However it does not voilate any laws. I was one of the two designers of the logo and for all practical purposes I have written NOC from the partner.

I don't see any "All rights reserved notice" on the Home > Company > Newsroom > Media Gallery >Priv by BlackBerry Media page at http://ca.blackberry.com/company/newsroom/media-gallery/priv.html
What I do see is individual download links for each of the image files. It appears to me that BlackBerry Limited is making these images freely available in order to promote their products.
