File:Жеплинський-001-135-А-Лаз.pdf

Full list:

Please see also scanned Permission for this book.

These files are PDF-version of printed book "Українські кобзарі, бандуристи, лірники. Енциклопедичний довідник" (Ukrainian kobzars, bandurists, liricists. Encyclopedic reference book) that containing short biographies of Ukrainian kobzars with bibliography references.

File was deleted per COM:PCP because following accuses: There is permission of author of book, but there is no evidence that authors of book have rights for all photos of that book.


Authors and acknowledgments

Author of this book is Богдан Жеплинський and his daughter. Жеплинський — kobzar since 1946, repressed because this in 1950; now, in independent Ukraine he is head of Lviv department of Національна спілка кобзарів України (National union of kobzars of Ukraine).

Afterword of book contains acknowledgments (see, for example, here at the end of PDF, Ukrainian language):

  • велика кількість людей (many people), автори складають їм глибоку вдячність (authors express deep appreciation)
  • кобзарі, бандуристи, їх рідні, діячі мистецтв (kobzars, bandurists, their families, artists)
  • thanksgivings to many people, include already died (names here)
  • members of National union of kobzars of Ukraine, heads of departements of National union of kobzars of Ukraine (names here)
  • "Бандура" magazine (New-York) (note, current head of National union of kobzars of Ukraine also editor of this magazine)
  • many others.

So, I do not understand why we should suspicious that Encyclopedic reference book about kobzars created by heads and members of National union of kobzars of Ukraine (also note that many members of this union are from w:Ukrainian diaspora) containing unfree photo of kobzars? COM:PCP say The precautionary principle is that where there is significant doubt about the freedom of a particular file, it should be deleted.


Doubts

I don't see any significant doubt. There are no any real doubts in nomination discussion exclude just a words of nominator. But I suspect it is just yet another part of harassment of user Perohanych. I'm very new on Wikipedia but in very short term that I'm here (three month) I saw as the same people:

  • Blocked retrieving OTRS permission for "Енциклопедія Криворіжжя" ("Encyclopedia of Kryvyi Rih area") because many bureaucratic issues (there was no problems with authors or authors rights, Perohanych contacting with authors in real life, just bureaucracy), there was no any attempt to help him resolve this case, then it looks as result of this Perohanych just gave up attempts to upload this book.
  • Current case.
  • On Wikimedia Ukraine site the same people remove message about retrieving by Perohanych CC-BY-SA permissions for all biographies of poets from Ukrainian poetry site and all materials from site of Institute of philology of w:Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv because "PR of Perohanych"
  • Link to Ukrainian Wiki related blog by Perohanych was removed from Perohanych User Page on Wikimedia Ukraine site (later it was restored by decision of organization board)
  • After restoration the same people make proposition to organization board to remove all user pages from indexing. It's discussed now. It looks like Perohanych is target again, I see he and the same people in discussion.

It looks like just a war against of Perohanych. I do not know what is cause of conflicts and I do not want to known but I'm very sad because of this. It is unacceptable when personal conflicts became reason for removing important free content from Wikipedia. Artem.komisarenko (talk) 19:07, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

File:Griselda Blanco.jpg

IMHO, deletion of this file is absolutely ridiculous. It was originally deleted because there was no evidence of permission. However, the uploader had specified it was his/her own work and provided an appropriate license. Therefore, permission had been granted. After approaching the admin responsible for deletion, he restored it and nominated it for deletion. In the deletion discussion, not a single, valid justification for deletion was put forward, only speculation, some of which was stretching the bounds of reality. The original nomination seems to imply that the uploader might come to some physical harm for uploading the photo, even though the subject had been dead for 14 months at the time. Another reason was that "we need documented proof that this is the uploaders own work", but that is not something we normally demand. The other reason was "it could easily be from a newspaper", despite the quality being much better than we expect from a scanned newspaper image. However, the discussion was closed as delete because "per cmts". No actual evidence has been provided that this image was not the uploader's own work and, as I pointed out in the deletion discussion, I haven't been able to find that image anywhere. I've come here in frustration because I just cannot see any valid reason for deletion. --AussieLegend () 05:54, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support, I think, per COM:AGF. I was also not able to find a version which predated the upload here. It sure looks like a crop from a digital photo. Normally, we need to show some actual evidence of it being available somewhere, or some other concrete reason why we believe the uploader is not the copyright holder. I don't see where that was done. If the uploader was the one requesting it be taken down, that would be different, but... sounds like the uploader did want it uploaded still. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:40, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Firstly, the image appeared here in 2011 (page's metadata: "datetime="2011-10-14 01:54:36 -0300"), well before its November 2013 upload to Commons. Secondly, COM:AGF is about intent only; many users, for example, are unfamiliar with the concept of derivative works and therefore believe that by cropping an image, they own the copyright on the crop. Assuming good faith means only that they did not intend to deceive, not that are correct about authorship claims or that we should abandon common sense or the requirements of COM:EVID. An SPA uploading a private/intimate setting image of a highly infamous "Queen of Narco-Trafficking" is possible, but highly extraordinary. As COM:EVID requires "appropriate evidence" (appropriateness necessarily implying consideration of context), we absolutely would need at least an OTRS ticket with a more complete version of the image to demonstrate authorship. Эlcobbola talk 22:25, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
    • Yes, if we find an earlier version on the net, that would change things for me. However, the caption under that image references an event in 2012, so I don't think that part was written in 2011. Also, that version is lower resolution than the uploaded image. The article was most likely updated years after it was first written. The main question is if there was another source somewhere. Yes, sometimes COM:EVID is a gut feel, so I can't argue with you (or others) on that. It could certainly be that a family member or friend wanted a more positive picture than a mug shot after her death so uploaded it -- would make sense with an SPA, and wouldn't be all that extraordinary. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:58, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
      • 2012 is also before the November 2013 upload. Yes, it could be a family member, but it could also be a drive-by uploader who found the image on the web, which is why we require "appropriate evidence," not speculation. To think the two scenarios are equally likely is in my view to be divorced from reality. Эlcobbola talk 14:25, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
        • It shows it was edited later, not necessarily in 2012. If it was someone who found it on the web, usually it's possible to find an earlier source, and I spent a while yesterday trying to find one and couldn't. That usually has me suspecting that the Commons upload was the first one. It does not appear to be scanned, and the resolution was pretty high. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:36, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
          • Per COM:EVID, it is incumbent on you, who wishes to retain the image, to provide evidence. We have a web page with 2011 and 2012 dates. Perhaps the image was added after November 2013, but we have no reason to believe that. It is high resolution, but it's also highly distorted; it has clearly been enlarged. Give me any picture from the web and two minutes and I'll give you whatever resolution you want. Changing the resolution may be why the uploader felt s/he had copyrights per my example of not being familiar with derivative works. This is clearly a COM:PRP issue. Эlcobbola talk 14:46, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
            • The server file date on that image on that page is November 2014. That to me is when it was most likely added. The images earlier in the article have a server date of October 2011, the same date the article was originally put up. So I don't think that page is evidence that the image existed before 16 November 2014 on that site, a year after upload here. I can't see the Commons image directly, but this appears to be a straight copy -- I see no evidence of distoration or enlarging or pixellation; there are some small dust-like details, a little blurry, which do not seem distorted. It looks to me like a crop from a wider photo, taken in lowish light from an earlier, not-great-quality digital camera. The EXIF info shows Microsoft Photo Viewer, which might make sense for a crop (though no camera info). Normally with self-claimed own work, we will accept the information unless we find evidence of earlier publication -- that would indeed change my mind, but I have not found any, and I don't think the link you found is one. So, based on gut feel, you are imposing a higher standard for this image in particular (which is OK -- but it's not automatically PRP either). There is no other track record of the uploader, good or bad. Normally we accept "own work" claims with no evidence to the contrary, so this would have to be different for some reason -- and while I can understand suspicions, I haven't seen anything to make me change my opinion, yet. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:59, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
              • elcobbola is correct that the image appears here but elcobbola is not correct that it appeared on that page "well before its November 2013 upload to Commons". If you look at the image code with a text editor, almost at the very beginning is "File source: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Griselda_Blanco.jpg". Clearly, the image had to have been added to the page some time after the file was uploaded here. --AussieLegend () 05:17, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Out of curiosity, what would showing a wider crop demonstrate? To me that only makes sense if we know this crop was circulated somewhere else first. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:34, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm interested in a response to that myself. I must admit to being somewhat confused as to how reversions by other editors at wikis are relevant. The reversions at es.wiki appear to be because the image was added to the wrong field. It was later added to the correct one.[2] The en.wiki addition was reverted once. It wasn't reverted again. --AussieLegend () 13:43, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Question. I followed the steps but could not figure out how to "read in a field" to find out the source. What am I missing? Rybkovich (talk) 19:23, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
I don't see the field on that EXIF viewer site either. But if you put the image URL into http://exif-viewer.com , it does show that field (which is embedded in the image as a comment). Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:37, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Or, as I said two months ago, you can simply open the file with a text editor. --AussieLegend () 11:38, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

File:Aurel Barglazan 1.jpg

An OTRS ticket (#2015062210006575) showed up, this image may actually be free.—Andrei S. Talk 17:34, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

{{o} I don't think so. The Google translation of the ticket reads (parts redacted for privacy):

"I, [X] holder of the copyright to the photograph "AurelBărglăzan 1.jpg" article published on Wikipedia box "Aurel Bărglăzan" available online at: http: //library.kiwix.org/wikipedia_ro_all/A/Aurel Bărglăzan htm [..] declare that release the photo, whose source is the family archive, licensed under "Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 4.0". Can be contactatla mailing address [X], or by e-mail at [X]"

The problem here is "the family archive". The owner of a photograph rarely owns the copyright -- that is almost always held by the photographer or his heirs. Therefore the owner of the copyright to a photo in a family archive is not the owner of the archive, but the heir of the photographer. Mr. [X] almost certainly does not have the right to freely license this image. This is a 1940 image, so it is very unlikely that the photographer has been dead for 70 years as required by Romanian law. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:40, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Given that it is a rather formal portrait, it probably was not taken by a family member. - Jmabel ! talk 00:25, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Not sure on Romania, but in some countries there used to be a presumed transfer of copyright for some commissioned works (such as the UK -- the 1911 Act had where, in the case of an engraving, photograph, or portrait, the plate or other original was ordered by some other person and was made for valuable consideration in pursuance of that order, then, in the absence of any agreement to the contrary, the person by whom such plate or other original was ordered shall be the first owner of the copyright.) Modern laws have trended towards the photographer owning the rights absent an agreement but that was definitely not always the case 60-100 years ago. Also, Romania apparently never made their copyright restorations retroactive, so there are all sorts of odd clauses in their old laws (and shorter protections) which may still apply -- see {{PD-Romania}} and {{PD-RO-photo}}. Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:33, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
It might be worth a Romanian speaker's reading the old laws, but I think it's a long shot. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:40, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
You'd need a United States copyright tag too. If it is from a family archive, then it is presumably unpublished - and the copyright term for unpublished works is quite long in the United States, see {{PD-US-unpublished}}.
In Sweden, the law used to state that the person who requested the creation of the photograph was the copyright holder, but the law was changed in the mid-1990s. No idea what Romanian law said at that time. --Stefan2 (talk) 14:47, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
They likely have a publication right which lasts for 25 years but I never understood if this allows you to license a work or not. Natuur12 (talk) 11:32, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
The Swedish implementation of that right is very confusing. It says that the first person to publish a work becomes the copyright holder for 25 years from the first time when the work was made available to the public, but a work could have been made available to the public more than 25 years before it was first published, possibly making the right useless in some situations. Not sure how the law is meant to be interpreted.
The publisher only holds economic rights but not moral rights to the work and can license the economic rights. The publisher only becomes the copyright holder in those countries in which the original copyright term already had expired as of the date of first publication. This risks creating a rightsholder mess if different countries have different copyright terms. For example, the UK has perpetual copyright protection of many unpublished works, and Spain protects most works for 10 years longer than the other EU countries. Let's say that Person X is the author of an unpublished work and that the copyright has expired in all EU countries except Spain and the UK. The work is then published by Person Y, who is an EU citizen or resident. Now you have the situation that Person X's heir is the copyright holder in Spain and the UK for the remainder of the original Spanish and British copyright terms, while Person Y is the copyright holder in all other EU countries for 25 years from publication. Person Y has no right to publish the work in Spain or the UK without permission from Person X's heir, and Person X's heir has no right to publish the work in the other EU countries without permission from Person Y. If there are countries outside the European Union in which the work is copyrighted (for example, the United States), then Person X's heir would normally be the copyright holder in those countries. The EU publication right creates situations where we need to obtain permission from one rightsholder with respect to the United States copyright holder and permission from another rightsholder with respect to the source country copyright. For this specific picture:
  • The copyright of this picture has not expired in the United States. Since we need to comply with United States copyright rules, permission from the original copyright holder is needed.
  • The copyright may or may not have expired in the source country. If it was only recently published and the copyright expired before that point, then we need permission from the person who first published the picture in order to comply with the source country copyright rules.
I'm guessing that we therefore need OTRS from two different people: one person with respect to the United States copyright and another person with respect to the Romanian copyright. --Stefan2 (talk) 23:38, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

File:Lancaster Country Day School Mail - Fwd- Great News for Squash copy.pdf

I am asking for the file "Lancaster Country Day School Mail - Fwd - Great News for Squash copy.pdf" to be undeleted. Reasons for deletion include the fact that the first page of this document was almost "entirely black" -- however, this is not true for the second page or third page of this document. The addresses of the recipients of the email were blacked out in order to maintain the privacy of those involved, as this is a public domain and personal information should not be shared without prior consent. However, the email was in the hands of the uploader and thus the uploader retained the ability to upload it to the Commons. All names were blacked out, all timestamps were blacked out, however, it is clear that the email did originate from Lancaster Country Day School and the email provides proof of the squash program (and it was used as a citation for that reason). This document was deleted in a rash manner, as it is clear the second page of the document was not examined (and the second page holds the most content and is the most important for the citation). Thank you.

File:Picture of Yogesh Gautam.jpg

This is My personal Photo. I am learning to use wiki and to edit wiki.

As noted in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Picture of Yogesh Gautam.jpg, the file was deleted because it did not appear to be within Commons' project scope. Your request for undeletion does not address the reason for deletion. Can you explain how the photo would be useful for educational purposes? LX (talk, contribs) 16:49, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
Hmm. On the scope issue, I would be inclined to undelete the image for Yogwis's user page. Although a brand new contributor, he has given us two technically very competent images which are in Commons Photo Challenge, so he is not simple drive by user who thinks that Commons is Facebook. On the other hand, the image is of himself and does not look like a selfie, so the "own work" claim is probably not correct. In order to restore it, we probably need a license from the actual photographer using OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:30, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

I fully respect your opinion. But since the message this user left me is written in Chinese, I would like to point out that in the messge (s)he felt apologetic about the copyvios (s)he uploaded during early times when (s)he did not have an adequate understanding of the copyright rules. This image in question, as the uploader emphasizes, is indeed his/her own work. --Wcam (talk) 21:29, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The image shows a four person band on stage. In addition, the backdrop is a projection screen which shows the lead singer from a different angle. If the screen image has a copyright, then File:Taopaojihua.png infringes on it as a derivative work.

The law concerning performance screens of this sort is clear -- if the camera feed went directly to the screen and no recording was made, then the screen image does not have a copyright. On the other hand, if the feed to the screen was recorded, then it does have a copyright. Since recording is virtually free these days, it is hard to imagine that no recording was made. Therefore, in order to restore the image you will have to either prove that no recording was made (presumably by getting a statement from the concert producer) or get the concert producer to send a free license to OTRS. .     Jim . . . .

Sa sylvan (talk) 19:15, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This colleague put a similar message on my talk page, where I responded as follows:

The comment at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Pacific Warfighting Center.png tells the story. The description did not say {{PD-US-no-notice}} -- it said that you claimed the image as your own work. Because it was both small and without EXIF, the nominator and I assumed that it had been lifted from the Web and was not, in fact, your "own work". That turns out to be correct, as you say above -- it comes from https://community.apan.org.
APAN.org is vague about what it actually is. It acts for the DOD, but is not a government site (".org", not ".gov"), so we cannot assume that anything on it is PD. In particular, the site's terms of use explicitly prohibit reuse of material on the site:
[Users must not]:
"2. Duplicate, license, sub license, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, sell, rebrand, or otherwise transfer information found on APAN (excluding content posted by you) except as permitted in this Agreement or as expressly authorized by APAN;

8. Rent, lease, loan, trade, sell/re-sell access to APAN or any information therein, or the equivalent, in whole or part;"

Unless you can prove that these images were actually created by US Government employees in the course of their work, they cannot be kept on Commons. Note that this would be true even if APAN actually is a US government site masquerading as an independent organization. US Government Web sites host many images that were not created by government employees and, therefore, are not PD. .     Jim . . . .

File:Gordon J. Keddie.jpg Not from web, direct from creator

I did not find this photo on the web but rather received it directly from its owner who gave permission to have it uploaded to wikimedia commons. Indeed, I edited it in photoshop to increase contrast which can be seen by comparing it to copies already existing on the internet. You can see from my name that I am a relative of the subject, who is my father, and copyright issues should not be in play. If you examine the photo available on the web you can see that it is cropped from the full version which I uploaded and cannot be the source of my photo. I appreciate your vigilance.

Just how dumb do you think we are? It is a photograph from 1910. You would have to be at least 108 years old to have conceivably taken this photo yourself.
I note that you have uploaded a number of images of paintings by Hanns Diehl (1877-1946). Please see Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by George.boeck. I also note that as you threatened above, you have uploaded 3 images a second time after they were deleted. That is a serious violation of Commons rules and if you do it again you will be blocked from editing here.
Please understand that owning a paper copy of an old photograph does not make you the owner of the copyright or give you any right to freely license its use here. The copyright belongs to the photographer or his heirs. In order to restore the photographs, you must, in each case, either prove that the photographer died before 1946 or have the photographer or his heirs send a free license to OTRS. .     Jim . . . .

Yann,

I understand your concern, but they are minor issues as far as copyright law is concerned in my opinion. For instance, the pictures, example Wainggai himself, were published in multiple blogs - mostly his own blogs. If copyright codes embedded in those picture prohibited then from being used again unless a declaration from him is submitted, I'm perfectly fine with that. To save the hustle, continue with the deletion.

Thanks for you time..

File:Le Train des Municipales.jpg

Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to undelete this picture, at least in order to restore a cropped version with the woman Wendy Bouchard. You can choose: either the copyrighted background can be considered as De Minimis, and then we can restore the whole picture (because the main subjects of the picture are the woman and the train, and not especially the logos on the train), or it can't be considered as De Minimis, and then we can restore a cropped version of the picture with the woman and a part of train where the logos will be considered as De Minimis, or a cropped or blurred version of the picture with no logo at all but a little part of the train, or even a cropped version of the picture with only the woman. I will let you choose then Face-smile.svg. Thank you very much for your help. Jeriby (talk) 09:12, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I restored the image temporarily, as it's not an obvious case of copyvio (background images are blurred), and it's easier for everyone to see it and give an opinion about where it has to be cropped or if it has to be cropped at all. If it is decided that the whole image is indeed a copyvio, after the upload of the cropped version, this file should be deleted again.--- Darwin Ahoy! 20:07, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm kinda on the borderline on this one -- the background photos are intentionally included -- but given that they are quite out of focus, I'll say that they are de minimis. Obviously the fact they are running for office, and the ad appears on the train, is important to the photo -- but I don't think the original photographer's expression present in those original photos is really copied all that much in this photo, nor is it at all important to this one. The fact that the underlying photo is of the same woman is important to, but that is not part of anyone's protected expression. Symbol support vote.svg Support Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:45, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I was the closing Admin in this case. I think it is hard to say that the photos on the train are DM -- certainly it was easy for me to see that the one photo is the same woman as in the foreground. As I said in my closing comment, the clear reason that the photo was taken then and there was the photos in the background. Carl, on your argument, we could keep any small or slightly blurred image of a copyrighted work. If you believe that should be policy then by all means recommend it, but as policy stands now if someone uploaded a crop showing only the woman's face from the train, it would be deleted. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:07, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
It's not that exactly -- the expression in a photograph is in the angle, lighting, etc. as shown in the photograph, and *not* the subject itself. The fact that you can recognize the person does not mean that the expression in the original photograph was copied. The expression in the new photograph really doesn't trade on any of the expression in the original photograph -- it just trades on the fact that the subject of the photo was the same woman (wouldn't really matter *which* photo happened to be used for the ad on the train). I really don't think there is any conceivable situation -- even commercial -- where the photographer of the original photograph could really complain that this photograph is an infringing derivative work, which is the point of our policy. Virtually all the protected expression in the original is obscured to me, and whatever is left is de minimis -- I cannot think of any realistic way this photo could ever be a problem, even if sold as a postcard. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:16, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
I would agree with you wholeheartedly if the one of the photos on the train were not the foreground subject. Since it is, people viewing the image are inevitably going to look closely at her photo on the train and compare the two. The photo on the train is 250px high -- it's hard to say that it is de minimis and the photographer would certainly recognize his or her work. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:59, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure they would recognize it (though probably more because they know which specific photo had been used in the advertisements) -- but the question is if more than a de minimis amount of protected expression was copied. The protected expression does not include the likeness of the woman. The point of inclusion is the overall advertisement on the train, not specifically the portraits. I cannot think of a realistic way that the overall photo could ever, in any situation, be ruled an infringing derivative work of the portraits, which is the point where derivative works become a problem to host. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:33, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
I agree with Carl. Specifically, that it can be argued that there is a purpose to include a picture of the same woman in the background. But there is no purpose to include that specific picture as that purpose would not be achieved - its fuzzy, its hard to argue that it expresses the creativity of the author. So it is the idea of the picture of the woman being in the background and not that specific picture and the originality that would come with it, that is part of the upload. Rybkovich (talk) 21:21, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
I think that blurring is rarely a solution to this kind of problem. That's particularly true of this one. The whole point of the image is that she is standing in front of a train that is advertising her candidacy. Blurring the background makes it impossible to see that -- you can no longer read her name on the train or compare her to her photo on the train.
Since I seem to be in the minority here, I'll say that I understand the opposing point of view and will not further object if we decide to keep the original image -- but the blurred one is unacceptable as far as I am concerned. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:05, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
I was thinking the issue was the two photos in the background on the train, if it is not the concern someone can revert my version. Regard, Christian Ferrer (talk) 11:14, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
It is the issue, but for me, blurring them makes the whole photo pointless -- someone looking at it will wonder why she is standing in front of a train? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:12, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

The deleting admin, Hedwig in Washington, seems to be not here yet (last edit is 16:29, 30 December 2015). I believe this file doesn't need an undeletion discussion as the file is clearly in the public domain. Thanks and happy new year, Poké95 11:37, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

It is not an official work in Germany because those are (only) "statutes, ordinances, official decrees or judgments". This is a letter, which means it is none of those. One could argue that the sentences are only quite simple ones below the threshold of originality (COM:TOO), but that would better be discussed in the proper venue of an undeletion request. --Rosenzweig τ 22:41, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
Official works in Germany are amtliche Erlasse and Entscheidungen. This is both an amtlicher Erlass ("ich verfüge") as well as a Entscheidung ("ich verbiete"). It is not simply a letter only have the amtliche Erlass and the Entscheidung been brought to the knowledge of the defendant. It is an official work. Please undelete. --Peteremueller (talk) 17:03, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
An Entscheidung is a court judgment – this letter is not from a court. An Erlass is a decree directed at either another institution or the whole population – this is a letter directed at an individual. And perhaps I should clarify: All I wrote about official works in Germany is about them in the light of copyright, more precisely § 5 UrhG. In a broader definition, everything authored by the state is an official work, but that doesn't help us here. --Rosenzweig τ 18:00, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
While it's questionable whether it can be considered an "official work" in the sense of copyright law, the letter is clearly below TOO. Nevertheless, the request should be filed at Commons:Undeletion requests.

The letter is only fulfilling an administrative matter. The seal (Deutscher Gummiadler mit Hakenkreuz) on the very bottom of the page is covered by § 5 UrhG. Shouldn't be a problem to keep.

File:VanWestendorp1.svg

Someone recently removed a file by the name of "VanWestendorp1.svg" under suspicion of a copyright violation, which was my contribution to the Van Westendorp's Price Sensitivity Meter page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Westendorp%27s_Price_Sensitivity_Meter) I have personally designed the illustration in Adobe Illustrator and happy to provide a source file if needed.

Natuur12 and Krd, would you please take another look at this? You were the nom and the closer at Commons:Deletion requests/File:VanWestendorp1.svg.

Thanks Jameslwoodward, Natuur12. To give you more details - the reason why the image I uploaded is professional quality is because I happen to be a graphic designer by education and co-founder/CEO of a market research company http://aytm.com (https://www.linkedin.com/in/levmazin). We've developed our version of Price Sensitivity Meter that you can check out here: http://aytm.com/pages/question-types?tid=research#wd. As a part of my job I'm responsible for all UI/UX work and use vector images for mock ups and internet-optimized graphics. The file I prepared for the wikipedia article was based on my designs but doesn't consist any references to my company nor anything too specific that it couldn't be in the public domain. I've decided to contribute it to the article as without it, it's much harder to understand the essence of van Westendorp method. Natuur12 - I had some issues with uploading a corrected version of the file and had to name it VanWestendorp1.svg. It can be safely renamed to VanWestendorp.svg. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions before the image can be restored. Are we waiting for Krd to chime in? Cheers, Lev Mazin --Levasha (talk) 02:24, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

@Corneliakane:"to his Wikipedia page for academic purposes" seems to be a restriction. What free license does she choose?   — Jeff G. ツ 07:27, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
There never has been a file with the name File:PierreKleykamp.jpg. Note that capitalization is important in Commons file names -- there is File:PierreKleykamp.JPG which was deleted last August and which you uploaded a second time today. That upload was a violation of Commons rules.
Policy requires that in order to keep the file, your grandmother must send a free license to OTRS. Although I might be inclined to overlook that, unless such a license is noted in the file description the file may be deleted at any time in the future from now for lack of a proper license.
Note also that, as Jeff says,
"permission to upload it to his Wikipedia page for academic purposes."
is not a good license for Commons or WP:EN. We require that images be free for use anywhere by anybody for any purpose. The CC-BY-SA license which you put on the image does just that. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:37, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a formal studio portrait which appears under copyright elsewhere on the Web. It seems unlikely that your claim that it is your "own work" is correct.

The copyright will almost certainly be owned by the photographer. In order to restore it to Commons, we will need the photographer to send a free license to OTRS.

"this image has been shared by him only to add in the wikipedia page of his"

Hmm.. I restored those files before seeing this discussion here, as it came to my attention that that DR in question appeared to not have been correctly closed, with files being deleted independently of already being OTRS certified without any explanation, or when they were waiting for the OTRS ticket which was apparently MIA (and there's good reason to believe there was a problem with those tickets, and it's not merely the uploader trying to gain some time). In any case, those files were broadly in use, in dozens of articles in many different projects, and their hasty deletion, without waiting even some reasonable time to check what was going on with the OTRS tickets, caused a great and unnecessary damage. As already mentioned, some of those images, maybe a dozen or so, had already been certified by OTRS, but they were deleted without any explanation.
As for gmail, I certainly understand the problem of forgeries, but I'm sure that there are ways to address those problems by the OTRS staff, when they suspect there is something fishy going on, such as asking for additional evidence? Instead of what happened here, with the deletion of so many files, in use in so many projects and pages, out of unwarranted suspicions, and without doing nothing about the OTRS tickets already in place in the files?--- Darwin Ahoy! 19:15, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Gabrielsanz

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: The user The Photographer requested to delete (deleted by Alan) these files because according to him the source is property of Vizzuality and/or third parties and are protected by United States and international copyright laws, which is TOTALLY FAKE, since those maps are of my own work, and it doesn't have anything related to CartoDB website, I'm not violating anything with these maps, which were made by myself. --Gabrielsanz (talk) 21:14, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

That site's terms of use do say they use base maps from Stamen (which they say is licensed CC-BY-3.0) and also OpenStreetMap, among other unfree ones. So, there's a chance the end works are OK. I don't know exactly how that site works, and if copyrighted content was present in the maps. Or if the site was used at all. Looking at the cached version of the Gran Caracas satellite picture, that says it was using the Suomi NPP satellite, which is a NASA satellite. The claim of "own work" is clearly wrong there but that is likely PD-USGov-NASA. The first image does not state a source. @Gabrielsanz: -- when you say "own work" you are claiming that all of the content is your own -- i.e. the lines of the maps, satellite images, etc. If you used a tool to generate the final result, you may not own any copyright in it actually, and at the very least it's a derivative work of the various source materials, which we need to know the licenses of. It's fairly likely you aren't taking the satellite photographs yourself ;-) so we need to know those are free, as well. How did you go about making these images? It's quite possible these are OK, but there seems to be precious little source info. For example, File:Merida Glaciation in Venezuela.png looks like there are several layers chosen from a mapping tool. What is the source of the map and other data? Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:30, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying the point on the map of Gran Caracas, what I wanted to mean there with "own work" is that I did the edition of the polygonal and limits boundaries of the conurbations, the night map it's from NASA and its copyright policy states that "NASA material is not protected by copyright unless noted", now I know I have to share credits from them too. The map File:Merida Glaciation in Venezuela.png was made using data from IGVSB (where I work) and the extent of the glaciated area, are above 2800-3000 m (in Venezuelan Andes), according the following investigations: [1][2][3][4].The map of top foreign population, was made according the data of 2011 Census, and just coloured each municipality with the corresponding foreign top population. The map of Greater Caracas (not the satellital one), was also mapped by me, just coloured the municipalities that belongs to Greater Caracas area. --Gabrielsanz (talk) 07:22, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
OK, cool. Most of us don't have the ability to generate maps from scratch... often using a copyrighted source to get the outlines, etc. Even if a government source those can still be copyrighted. What matters though is the source of the actual outlines or photos... The source data for maps is different -- that does not cause a copyright issue, but can help someone to determine how useful a map is, its reliability, etc. Doing something as simple as overlaying existing border outlines onto a satellite photo actually would normally not rise to the level of being copyrighted itself -- it would be an obvious combination of two existing copyrightable works (and we'd need permission or a license on those other works). Most of your maps sound original enough to have their own copyright, so "own work" is accurate -- if you have tools that generate the maps from the raw data, should be OK. Tools that use outline data sets... can be trickier though, as that may be copying a graphic work as part of the result. If they are copyrighted but licensed OK, then we need to follow the terms of that license, which is typically identifying them, even if you do have copyrightable content of your own -- this a derivative work where multiple authors might be involved. That is what the CartoDB terms are mentioning -- if someone uses that site to create maps, some of the underlying data is actually of a copyrightable form, and if copied into a map, that map cannot really be licensed freely. If it's using the Stamen or OpenStreetMap outlines only, then it should be fine. I can't see the files directly, but I think I'd Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion (with improved sourcing).

@Jeff G., Edaen, Holger.Ellgaard, Slowking4: (users comment on Category DR)

  • Questions:
  1. Do we ignore Swedish law and keep files that might get the photographer and/or reuser into trouble with Swedish authorities?
  2. If we decide to ignore SWE law: Do we grant Green Yoshi a courtesy deletion?

I am a little bit torn. I rather keep all the photographs. If we decide to delete those files, be advised that there are a lot of installations considered Skyddslagen in Sweden. On the other hand, it's not the first time the community decided to ignore laws, rightfully so or not. military radio station, 2013, URAA, etc. So, what do others think how we should handle this? --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 23:11, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

  • For my part if we respect the Swedish copyright law I don't see why not to respect the Swedish security law as well. Christian Ferrer (talk) 23:51, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Have we allowed uploads of Nazi symbols by people who are uploading from Germany? That would be a violation of Strafgesetzbuch section 86a. It seems like that uploading would be a violation of German law but not German copyright law. The difference with this case is that it is the uploading itself that is the crime, not something that occurred prior to uploading to commons. What about pictures that could be considered relevant to commons but where taken without consent of the person in the picture and were against the law? Maybe of a religious ritual where it being filmed is illegal in the country, or a private celebrity photo. Rybkovich (talk) 01:11, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
There is no way we can check if a photographer broke the rules. In the case of Ringhals, the protection was, probably, extended in 2010, meaning that two out of the three photos in the DR were photographed legally and the third possibly so. There is also a statute of limitations: if two years have passed since the time the photograph was taken, the photographer can no longer be prosecuted. In the case of the photo in question in this UDR, the photographer seems not to have been aware of the protection. If that ignorance was not due to negligence on his part, the the taking of the photograph was probably not punishable. Google doesn't seem to care.[6] I suspect the police was overzealous in the action reported in the article.[7] According to the rules of conduct for workers at Ringhals, they write "på Ringhals" (at Ringhals) suggesting that it is only illegal to take photographs from within the industrial perimeter. They also write: "14.5 [...] To take photographs or film at Ringhals, external personnel and visitors have to have a permission. NOTE! To all personnel, there is a ban on the taking of photos with a telephone's camera from inside the industrial fence."[8] No courtesy deletion. That would make Commons vulnerable to indirect pressure where we don't really know if there are any legitimate reasons for a removal. Edaen (talk) 03:26, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Uploading your own images to Wikimedia is not supposed to get you in trouble with the law. In general, we leave such situations to the uploader -- if they would rather take such photos down (even if it's not definitely illegal), then yes we do that. If the uploader wants to keep them uploaded, then we would. We should have no desire to create uncomfortable situations for the people who are donating work to the project -- if there are unanticipated consequences of uploading which can be mitigated by deletion, yes we virtually always would (or should) upon request. We certainly have in the past, pretty consistently. We don't delete simply because an uploader wants them removed, but if there are legal consequences involved, yes we absolutely should. Carl Lindberg (talk) 05:06, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
I'm with Carl Lindberg here; if the uploader wants them deleted, we should delete them.--Prosfilaes (talk) 10:01, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support In principle, I agree with Carl. Although our rules call for us to ignore local non-copyright rules (in particular, see Commons:Copyright_rules_by_subject_matter#Museum_and_interior_photography), despite the irrevocable license, we should not keep images where the photographer has a legitimate concern over prosecution.
That being said, I don't think it applies here. First, there is the statute of limitations, which has clearly expired. Second, it is obvious that the Swedish authorities don't care about photos of this power plant, see:

Google's apparent flaunting of the law has actually gained some notable criticism, such as this op-ed in one of Sweden's largest daily newspapers by the former National Police Commissioner. In the most notable court case on the matter, freedom of the press and freedom of speech came out ahead, but that was in a case involving professional journalists, which tend to enjoy greater protection than ordinary citizens. LX (talk, contribs) 12:52, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for that, but I don't read it (with Google Translate) quite as you do. I read that the police decided not to take any action against Google because the law regulates the taking of images, not the public posting of them, and the police decided that the driver of the Google car could not be validly prosecuted. That speaks to the case at hand -- uploading and posting the picture on Commons is not illegal -- the only illegality is the taking of the picture in the first place, and this is a distance shot, so that the photographer certainly could not see any warning signs. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:34, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
[9] : "It is also illegal to photograph or in any way make a picture of or describe (in writing) and/or publish pictures or documents of military installations and other "protected objects" (skyddsobjekt). ". If the subject is indeed a "protected object", yes it can have some legal issues for Commons. Christian Ferrer (talk) 19:57, 6 January 2016 (UTC) These are safety regulations that have here no censorship purpose but only preventing malicious actes by limiting as much as possible the spread of this kind of images. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:07, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
The relevant law is the Skyddslag SFS 2010:305. Article 7:
7 § A decision that an object is protected means that non authorized persons do not have access to the object.
Through a special decision it is possible to combine the prohibition of access with a prohibition against making depictions, descriptions or measurements of or within the protected object.
If it is enough to satisfy the need for protection, the prohibition of access can be replaced with a prohibition to make depictions or with a prohibition against bathing, diving, anchoring or fishing.
And:
32 § Depictions, descriptions and measurement data which have come into existence through a violation of this law shall be declared confiscated.
This law says nothing about publishing the material. The author of the article on enwp may have had chapter 19 of the general criminal code in mind. That chapter concerns crimes against the security of Sweden, among them espionage. Edaen (talk) 20:18, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
The museum rules guideline is more for when a non-author (such as the museum itself) requests deletion under those rules -- again, we leave that up to the uploader. If such an upload is going to ruin a relationship they have with the museum, which may be important to the uploader, again we should not keep in that circumstance (the uploader requesting deletion in light of the museum's wishes). If we don't treat contributors with respect, that will likely tend to reduce the willingness for anyone to contribute. That goes especially for something which is illegal, or might be illegal -- we are not residents of the country in question, and if a photos presence here makes the author constantly worry that there might be a realistic legal problem, I think we should delete. There are gray areas in the law, and it's impossible to tell what consequences could arise which could cause real problems for authors (be they legal, or otherwise). I would support uploader-requested deletions under those lines (we always have). We may think there is no legal problem, but maybe there is a local ordinance, or a local official with an axe to grind who will make life difficult for someone, etc. -- we are not in the author's shoes so it can be hard to tell. I don't support uploaders wanting to delete works for simply any reason, but if they can make a reasonable case along lines like this, I think we should keep them deleted (even if our reading of the law might suggest it's OK). Contributing work should not materially affect the uploader's life outside of their original expectations, if deletion is something which can help. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:00, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

File:First Contingent to the Boer War, Wagga Wagga.jpg

This photograph's copyright has expired and the license tag is {{PD-Australia}}. I'm quite surprised I hadn't noticed this earlier. Bidgee (talk) 09:06, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Hmm. I agree that it is likely PD, but I don't think that is beyond a significant doubt. To keep it, I think we need to prove that either:

  • It is an anonymous work and was published before 1955, or
  • It is a work of the Australian Government.

It's not a halftone, so this version does not come from a printed work, so there's no evidence of either. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:23, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Artur Mas - Fotografia oficial.jpg and File:Artur Mas 2011 (cropped).jpg

File:Artur Mas - Fotografia oficial.jpg and File:Artur Mas 2011 (cropped).jpg were deleted as "no permission", but according to Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#Checking_source_of_deleted_image they are sourced from president.cat - that is, the official web for President of Generalitat de Catalunya. It's legal notice (here) it's the same as other sites of Generalitat, from which images can be uploaded under {{Attribution-gencat}}. Therefore, I think those images just lacked the template but they are fine to keep just by adding it.--Pere prlpz (talk) 21:31, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I see the template, which quotes the Web site (in translation), saying you must

"a) Do not distort the meaning of information.
b) Quote always the source of the information.
c) Mention the date of the last update of the information.

The first of these disallows parody and other similar uses that are permitted under a CC license. It would, for example, prevent drawing a mustache on this photo. I see that this has been discussed as an aside at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump/Copyright/Archive/2015/06, but I don't think the wider community has seen it. I have, therefore, created Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Attribution-gencat. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:44, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

The first of those is generally related to moral rights, not derivative works, I think. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:56, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Carl, you're making a subtle distinction that I don't understand. Under the license as written, could one add a mustache to the photograph and publish it? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:01, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
In Spain parody is allowed even on copyrighted works, so I don't think parody might be a problem here. Anyway, moral rights aren't waived by CC-BY-SA or even PD-old, if there is a problem, the problem won't be different from the problem in any other free image.
"Distorting information" would be painting a moustache and say that Artur Mas actually wears a moustache. In fact, the phrase suits better statistical data, where you can just invent and change some numbers to tell anything diferent from original, or text, where you can cite a sentence out of context and change it's meaning. I don't see a copyright problem here.--Pere prlpz (talk) 11:35, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes, as long as it's labeled that way (or obvious it was not part of the original). The problem comes when alterations are made which can affect the author's reputation, if a viewer would believe that the altered version was in fact the original. The Berne Convention allows an author to object to any distortion, modification of, or other derogatory action in relation to the said work, which would be prejudicial to the author's honor or reputation. That is independent of the rights involved derivative works, which is part of the economic or exploitation right (the rights that "free" is concerned with). Moral rights are generally not transferrable, often not even waivable, and sometimes perpetual -- they basically can apply in all circumstances, so they can't cause something to become non-free. Many copyright licenses do cite clauses relating to moral rights, which are fine -- we just need to see if they are preventing all derivative works, or going beyond the bounds of moral rights -- typically using wording like "distortion" would be in the moral rights area. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:05, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Moral rights protect the rights of the author -- the photographer in this case. I have no problem with that. This clause seems to protect the subject of the image from distortion. Let's get away from straight parody. If this were a CC-BY image, I could use it to illustrate an instruction manual for Photoshop -- one image with a mustache, one changing colors, one with horns, and so forth. I don't think the no distortion requirement would allow that. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:40, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
I think that is fine how I read it -- that is obvious the alterations are not present in the original work. "Distortion" has the additional connotation that a use is misleading in that regard. The license explicitly allows derivative works -- the distortion clause then should derive from moral rights. A use of your example where you say "look at the poor mustache in this painting by (original author)" might not. These are non-copyright restrictions though -- you could presumably violate them even with a straight copy of a portion of the work if accompanied by a caption which misleads about the rest of the content or the meaning, or something like that, which could affect the author's reputation. The clause says "don't distort the meaning", not "cannot distort" -- the focus there is on the meaning, i.e. a use which misleads a viewer. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:57, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
I agree with Clindenberg. Furthermore, protecting the subject from distortion is a matter of personality rights, not copyright.
Anyway, this discussion should be about whether those two images fit our current policies and licenses, but we are arguing about if the template {{Attribution-gencat}} is OK for Commons. The template is already being discussed in Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Attribution-gencat. If the template gets deleted (which I think it won't) all images should undergo a (massive) deletion request based on their remaining merits, and if the template is kept images should be deleted only for reasons different than the template. Therefore, the discussion here should be just about the reason of previous deletion, that could be easily fixed by adding the (still valid) template. Although, of course, we can wait some days to the outcome of the deletion request just to avoid the risk of doing and undoing the same things.--Pere prlpz (talk) 15:34, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

(Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:16, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't mean to take it out of context but that is what I thought the reason for that specific set of images was since they are listed separately and the other ones talk about stuff like freedom of panorama. I managed to find a copy of the image. I would agree with the reasoning if it was purely a drawing of storm troopers like the 501st Legion Patch, but this looks like overzealousness on the nominator's part to delete the whole category. The storm troopers only take up one panel of three, and are clearly being used to illustrate a scene where the scream was used. Are you telling me that artists cannot use copyrighted material in their works under legitimate fair use? (Obviously, Commons cannot use the work of others under fair use, but the comic itself is properly licensed). Opencooper (talk) 13:18, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Full disclosure -- I am the "overzealous" nominator. You yourself say that Commons does not allow fair use, so where is your argument? It may be possible to publish the comic in fair use countries without attracting a DMCA takedown notice, but we cannot keep it without invoking fair use which we do not allow. A de minimis argument cannot apply, becuase if you eliminated the storm troopers from the central panel you would be left with nothing in the panel -- any viewer would notice the loss at once. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:33, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
I was (poorly) trying to make a distinction between Common's policy on fair use in comparison to works that utilize fair use. My point being that we're not the ones invoking fair use, but original artist is (implicitly by using the storm troopers). It is not up to us to make the legal call on whether it actually fits the definition; that is up to LucasFIlms' lawyers if they care. Otherwise hundreds of parodies would be illegal and many artists out of jobs. Opencooper (talk) 16:29, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Undeletion request for File:WR Classic head shot.jpg and File:WR Ross Reports 1952.pdf

Dear Wikimedia Commons,

I am requesting undeletion of two files: File:WR Classic head shot.jpg and File:WR Ross Reports 1952.pdf

I am new to Wikipedia, have never used computer code before, and the process of learning your many rules for uploading files has been extremely difficult for me.

The two files I would like to have undeleted are my scans of a photo of my father Wallace A. Ross, taken in the 1950s (source unknown, but probably dead by now), and of the cover of an out of print magazine that my father published and for which he owned the copyrights. He has been dead for over 40 years, I am the heir to his estate, and I am the owner of this photo and of the old copy of his magazine. I maintain that I am now the owner of the rights to both of these files, but I don't know how to prove that to you.

In case it will help, here is my legal statement of permissions. If this will help, but you need me to send it to the permissions-commons email address as well, just let me know, and I will do so.

I hereby affirm that I, Valerie Ross, the creator and/or sole owner of the exclusive copyright of both the work depicted and the media as shown here: File:WR Classic head shot.jpg and File:WR Ross Reports 1952.pdf I agree to publish the above-mentioned content under the following free license: Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International. I acknowledge that by doing so I grant anyone the right to use the work, even in a commercial product or otherwise, and to modify it according to their needs, provided that they abide by the terms of the license and any other applicable laws. I am aware that this agreement is not limited to Wikipedia or related sites. I am aware that the copyright holder always retains ownership of the copyright as well as the right to be attributed in accordance with the license chosen. Modifications others make to the work will not be claimed to have been made by the copyright holder. I acknowledge that I cannot withdraw this agreement, and that the content may or may not be kept permanently on a Wikimedia project. Valerie Ross Copyright holder January 9, 2016

Thank you for your help and advice, Valerie Ross Valerie Ross (talk) 22:39, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I doubt very much that you actually have the right to freely license the image. Owning a copy of a photograph does not make you the owner of the copyright and gives you no right to license it here. That right belongs to the photographer or his heirs. Depending on the date of publication (if any) of the photograph, it may be under copyright for many more years.
Symbol support vote.svg Support On the other hand, the copyright to the magazine was not renewed and therefore it is {{PD-US-no-notice}}.
.     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:13, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support on the second one; I updated the license to PD-US-not_renewed. Source is not required there, nor is OTRS. The first one... probably support too. That does not appear to be an image on the web. Copyright can be a bit tangled there, though usually photographers retain the copyright. But I see two possibilities -- one that the photographer retained the copyright, but then gave copies to Ross (in which case that would be distribution to a limited set of people, but for an unlimited purpose and no restriction on further publication, which by the rules at the time should have qualified as general publication and thus required a copyright notice which is obviously not present), or two that copyright was considered to be transferred to Ross, and as such has remained unpublished until now, and thus under copyright for 120 years from creation (or if photographer is known their life plus 70 years which has not passed), but the copyright would be owned by Ross' heirs which we apparently have here so a given license would be valid. Given that this is not a circulating photo, not sure we need to require OTRS on that one either. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:25, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
I'd like to accept your reasoning, Carl, but for three problems. First, we cannot see the back of the photo and there may well be a copyright stamp there, as permitted by the law. Second, many of the contracts for portraits that I have seen have a copyright clause restricting use -- certainly enough to raise our "significant doubt". Third, I don't think US law would call a portrait photographer giving a portrait to a client "publication" within the meaning of the law. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:49, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
If there was a notice on the back, I'm sure the heir/uploader would then know who the photographer was. Clauses like that might or might not mean anything -- a clause that only allows for publicity uses is a farcical restriction -- that is not a restricted purpose. There was a clause like that in the Warner Bros. v Avela case which the judge ignored and called it general publication. If there was a known contract for this photo, that would obviously be worth discussing -- but a theoretically possible contract containing theoretically possible clauses is not a "significant doubt". And if it counted as general publication, the lack of a copyright notice would have rendered that void anyways. As for general publication, I don't see why not. General publication was generally defined by the courts as distribution to a limited set of people, for a limited purpose, and with no rights of further distribution. All three needed to be satisfied. Simply giving copies to just family members would qualify for the first one, but not the second two. If there was an understanding preventing further distribution, why would the heir upload it? There has been more information since put on the photo -- it was apparently used for publicity purposes long ago, so that would eliminate any arguments that there was restricted use, and that it was published.

File:Жеплинський-001-135-А-Лаз.pdf

Full list:

Please see also scanned Permission for this book.

These files are PDF-version of printed book "Українські кобзарі, бандуристи, лірники. Енциклопедичний довідник" (Ukrainian kobzars, bandurists, liricists. Encyclopedic reference book) that containing short biographies of Ukrainian kobzars with bibliography references.

File was deleted per COM:PCP because following accuses: There is permission of author of book, but there is no evidence that authors of book have rights for all photos of that book.


Authors and acknowledgments

Author of this book is Богдан Жеплинський and his daughter. Жеплинський — kobzar since 1946, repressed because this in 1950; now, in independent Ukraine he is head of Lviv department of Національна спілка кобзарів України (National union of kobzars of Ukraine).

Afterword of book contains acknowledgments (see, for example, here at the end of PDF, Ukrainian language):

  • велика кількість людей (many people), автори складають їм глибоку вдячність (authors express deep appreciation)
  • кобзарі, бандуристи, їх рідні, діячі мистецтв (kobzars, bandurists, their families, artists)
  • thanksgivings to many people, include already died (names here)
  • members of National union of kobzars of Ukraine, heads of departements of National union of kobzars of Ukraine (names here)
  • "Бандура" magazine (New-York) (note, current head of National union of kobzars of Ukraine also editor of this magazine)
  • many others.

So, I do not understand why we should suspicious that Encyclopedic reference book about kobzars created by heads and members of National union of kobzars of Ukraine (also note that many members of this union are from w:Ukrainian diaspora) containing unfree photo of kobzars? COM:PCP say The precautionary principle is that where there is significant doubt about the freedom of a particular file, it should be deleted.

Where are significant doubts here? Artem.komisarenko (talk) 01:12, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are three problems here. First, when the source is not the uploader's own work, and the work is not PD, we require that the actual owner of the copyright send a free license directly to OTRS. Unfortunately we have seen too many forged permissions to be able to accept one directly from the uploader such as the one above.

Second, it is unlikely that the publisher of the book has the right to freely license the photographs in it. As is suggested in your list above, the persons providing the photographs for the book did so for that specific purpose and did not give the publisher a general license or transfer the copyright. So, while the use in the encyclopedia was perfectly OK, any other use of the images will require a license from the photographers. I should add that I would not be surprised if the publisher accepted the photos from people who simply owned a paper copy of the photo and did not actually own the copyright -- that would not be at all unusual.

Third, Commons allows PDF files only for very specific purposes. We do not keep images in PDF format. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:59, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

  1. Actual owner 86 years old, I'm not sure that he is OK with Internet (I'm sure is not OK). Paper permission is not OK here??? How we should take permissions for works that we do not have just now? (For example, I want take permission from illustrator family for his works published before 1991. I take paper permission then few years search actual books to scan in libraries and on auctions. Usually copyright holders of old works OK to take permission but usually they do not want any additional work and bureaucracy. "I take permission, what you want from me yet?! Wiki do not accept? It is its problem." say they).
  2. It is not just a photos from some people that does not understand what they do, it is photos from book about kobzars created by kobzars community. Fortunately Ukraine copyright law has "service work" conception, many of these photos are from archives (copyright holders of that service works), another from families of kobzars (that of course also copyright holders). Also note, that Ukrainian law understand "spoken permission" it is not need for Ukrainian book using contracts in USA style to be legal.
  3. According to Ukrainian law publisher has copyright for entire work (like encyclopedia, anthology etc.) Закон України «Про авторське право і суміжні права» ... Стаття 19. Авторське право на збірники та інші складені твори ... 2. Видавцям енциклопедій, енциклопедичних словників, періодичних збірників, збірників наукових праць, газет, журналів та інших періодичних видань належать виключні права на використання таких видань у цілому. ... Автори творів, включених до таких видань, зберігають виключні права на використання своїх творів незалежно від видання в цілому, якщо інше не передбачено авторським договором. http://zakon5.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/3792-12
  4. Commons allows PDF files only for very specific purposes. We do not keep images in PDF format. — but it also say Remember that Wikisource may use PDF or DjVu files in order to proofread or create source texts. I need it for Wikisource first. If it also will be used in Wikipedia — OK. But I need it for Wikisource.

Artem.komisarenko (talk) 14:59, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Again:

  1. We need permission from the actual owner of the copyright -- that is the photographer, not the owners of copies of the photos.
    Look at these photos. Most of them definitely is "service work". Another -- possible. Many -- already free (We have 1951 year as copyright guillotine now and many people especially kobzars was repressed at 193x). Copyright holder of service work is customer, not photographer. Artem.komisarenko (talk) 13:58, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
  2. Oral transfers or licenses of copyright are not permitted in the United States or the Ukraine (see article 33 of the Ukraine copyright law). And, as I said above, it is very unlikely that the encyclopedia publisher has the right to freely license these images. In the process of making an encyclopedia, they would ask for and get only the right to use the photos in the encyclopedia, not the right to freely license the photos to the world.
    So, I have to find author and ask him for all paper permissions for all photos before upload book to Wikimedia???? He will say: "You are kidding me."Artem.komisarenko (talk) 13:58, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
  3. Yes, Commons hosts PDF texts for Wikisource, but not photos. Wikisource photos, like all other photos on WMF projects, must be JPEG (preferred), PNG, GIF, TIF, or XCF (with a PNG copy)..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:54, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Again: It is not photo album. It is Encyclopedia with biographies and bibliographies. Photos are secondary part of it but it was removed because photos. Artem.komisarenko (talk) 13:58, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Exactly. The photos are not properly licensed. Without free licenses from all the photographers, they cannot be kept here..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:12, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

 Not done. PDFs including non-free images are not allowed on Commons. We need explicit licences from the original photographers. De728631 (talk) 00:21, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Signing your posts is required on talk pages and it is a Commons guideline to sign your posts on deletion requests, undeletion requests, and noticeboards. To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and a timestamp will then automatically be added when you save your comment. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). Thank you.
  • It is also courteous to give that name of the file or files which you want undeleted. Since an IP user cannot upload files, it took luck on my part to actually find the file which you are probably referring to. Please remember that we get 10,000 new files every day and delete about 2,000 of them, so none of us actually remembers more than a very few of them.

File:Charlotte LOGO NEW COLOR smaller.jpg

File was deleted citing "no permission." I would request the image be restored as content produced by or for the State of Florida governments or their agents are released into the Public Domain. The appropriate {{PD-FLGov}} may be placed onto the page for the file if it is restored. The deleting Admin refuse to undelete image and suggests I reupload a duplicate but this is not possible due to not knowing what particular version of this Seal was used to begin with. They also further explain uploader mistakenly labeled as "own work" (which may very well be given it's PD) and sourcing information was incorrect. Is easier to undelete and to allow me to include the appropriate attribution information. --dsprc (talk) 16:39, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I tend to agree with JuTa. If this particular version of the county seal came from the county's web site, then it is, as you say, PD. However, the version at https://www.charlottecountyfl.gov/Pages/default.aspx is much smaller than the version here. As a rule, any given representation of a seal or coat of arms has its own copyright belonging to the person who actually drew it. So, unless we know who drew this, we can't keep it.
As a second issue, there is the fact that we have File:CharlotteCounty_LOGO_BestOneEver_for_119.gif which is somewhat larger than the subject file. The subject file uses a much brighter green for the state and the fish -- that appears to be incorrect, as the color on the county web site is much closer to the gif than the deleted jpg. I see no reason to undelete a second, smaller, version of the same seal that appears to use the wrong color. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:26, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Signing your posts is required on talk pages and it is a Commons guideline to sign your posts on deletion requests, undeletion requests, and noticeboards. To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and a timestamp will then automatically be added when you save your comment. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). Thank you.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I see a comment on WP:EN from someone who purports to be in authority at Flight International which allows use of the magazine's work at Wikipedia. Unfortunately, that permission is from an anonymous editor and is not sufficient even for WP:EN -- both WP:EN and Commons require that images be free for use by anyone anywhere for any purpose.

If you can cite a broader permission from a traceable source, please do. Otherwise, this must remain deleted. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:45, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

This permission? Template:Flight archives from Flightglobal Rybkovich (talk) 15:57, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
This is a mess. The OTRS message cited in the template (#2016010410016319) refers to "581 image files in the Wikimedia Commons Category:Images from the Flightglobal Archive as of 17th December 2015". The category name has been changed to Category:Images from the Flightglobal archives --- no matter. However, the category lead calls out 585 images and there are actually 600 images in the category. It appears that 19 images have been added to the category that are not covered by the permission. I tried using VFC, but the date shown there is the last edit, not the date of upload, so that's not a help. Does anyone know a way of sorting a category by date or otherwise picking out the 19 images that are post 17 December 2015 without going through them one at a time?
If we can figure out the correct 581, they should be put in a gallery or at least a list should be made that can easily be checked. A Category is a terrible place for this since you cannot audit additions or subtractions easily.
In any event, the subject image was never in that category, so the template cannot apply.
I have raised the general problem at ANB, so any further discussion of the general template problem, as opposed to this specific image, should take place there. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:08, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't understand. I don't read any of the Cyrillic languages, so I can't comment in detail here, but I see one OTRS license from a person at a scientific institute. Among the images above,

  • we have many newspaper clipping from the 1980s and 1990s that appear to be from different newspapers. They will require licenses from at least one newspaper publisher -- as many licenses as there are newspapers.
  • we have formal photographic portraits which will require licenses from each photographer.
  • we have a painted portrait, which will require a license from the painter.

How can these all be licensed by one person? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:55, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

@Jameslwoodward: Why do you suggest that the permissions come from a single person? It is oviously not true for this ticket and ability to read cyrillic alphabet is not necessary to verify that. Note, that lack of ability to understand a language is not a valid argument in Commons. Symbol support vote.svg Support as I think we should believe the OTRS agent to make their work properly. If after they complete their work, there are still doubts, then we may request deletion again. Ankry (talk) 16:12, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

I would not for a minute argue that because I cannot understand the language that somehow that makes my point of view valid. What I attempted to say, not, apparently, clearly enough, is that the UnDR covers a wide variety of images from a wide variety of sources and while I did my best to dig out licenses for all of them, including a license from the painter and the portrait photographer,I did not find them. That doesn't mean they aren't there -- Google translate can only take me so far -- but it does suggest that another OTRS/Admin who reads the language make sure that all of the long list above are in fact covered. As for assuming that Максим Підліснюк got it right, I don't know him or her at all, so no offense intended here, but I see that he or she has limited experience on Commons, and almost none outside of the File namespace. I have seen far too many mistakes coming out of OTRS to assume that it is correct. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:08, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

I repeat, this is based only on the information available to me. --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 11:47, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

OK, Максим Підліснюк, let's see if we can work together to solve this. I've listed out the works above. We have 19 newspaper clippings from various newspapers, 3 photographs almost certainly from different photographers, and a painted portrait. Therefore we certainly need at least five different licenses, and probably many more. Perhaps you could list out in Cyrillic the names of the newspapers from which you have licenses? Some of them -- maybe half -- have the name at the top. You could also look at the PDFs I have undeleted to see if you have license for them. Note, by the way, that our uploader has claimed "own work" for all of these, so unless the licenses are all CC-0, someone will have to change all of the files. .     Jim . . . .

Наука в Сибире --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 19:18, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
Where are the "various newspapers"? At least the first four are from the same paper (variously identified as Газета "Наука в Сибири" for the first and Газета "За науку в Сибири" for the others, but clearly all the same journal; the name translates as "Science in Siberia"). I haven't gone through the rest of these, because the remarks above suggested these would require a bunch of different permissions, and at least the first four would presumably require exactly the same permission as one another. Ditto a couple of others I checked at random. Is there anything here not from that same journal? - Jmabel ! talk 06:39, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Two problems here. First, although you claimed to be the photographer when you uploaded the file ("own work"), you now tell us that that is not correct. You say that you got the photo from Monika Kordowicz, but you also say that the photographer is Michał Pańszczyk. The only person who can freely license the image here is almost always the actual photographer. Therefore, in order to restore the image, we will need a free license from him via OTRS.

Second, the subject is "Kamila Krotosz". I don't see any mention of her on WP or any Google hits other than the usual Facebook, etc. That raises the question of whether or not she is notable, as required on Commons.

Español
Decisión andina 351 de 1993

Colombia ha ratificado la Decisión andina 351 de 1993, un régimen común sobre derechos de autor y derechos conexos de la Comunidad Andina de Naciones y que en su Capítulo VII trata sobre las excepciones a los derechos de autor. El artículo 22 reza: Sin perjuicio de lo dispuesto en el Capítulo V y en el artículo anterior, será lícito realizar, sin autorización del autor y sin el pago de remuneración alguna, los siguientes actos:...h) Realizar la reproducción, emisión por radiodifusión o transmisión pública por cable, de la imagen de una obra arquitectónica, de una obra de bellas artes, de una obra fotográfica o de una obra de artes aplicadas, que se encuentre situada en forma permanente en un lugar abierto al público[1]. Las negrillas son mías. Esta excepción a la norma que se corresponde a la figura de libertad de panorama ya se encuentra recogida en Commons en el apartado Commons:Freedom of panorama#Andean Community of Nations (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru).

Museo como establecimiento permanente abierto al público

La Dirección Nacional del Derecho de Autor, órgano oficial adscrito al Ministerio del Interior como Unidad Especial, define un museo en su Circular No 08 del 15 de septiembre de 2003 como: una institución permanente, sin fines lucrativos al servicio de la sociedad y de su desarrollo, abierta al público y que efectúa investigaciones, sobre los testimonios materiales del ser humano y de su medio ambiente, los cuales adquiere, conserva, comunica y exhibe con propósito de estudio, educación y deleite.[2] Nuevamente las negrillas son mías. Esta definición aceptada por el Estado Colombiano, es la misma dada por el Consejo Internacional de Museos en el Artículo 2, parágrafo 1 de sus estatutos,[3] y recogida de forma idéntica en los estatutos del Comité Colombiano del Consejo Internacional de Museos.[4]

Sobre el caso de las imágenes borradas

En el caso específico que atañe a esta solicitud de restauración (undeletion), se propuso el borrado de tres (3) archivos: File:Caliwood - 01.jpg (01), File:Caliwood - 03.jpg (03) y File:Caliwood - 04.jpg (04). Los archivos 01 y 03 recibieron una solicitud de borrado. En ambos casos pedí se mantuvieran las imágenes ya que se encuentran protegidas por la libertad del panorama, como se puede ver en Commons:Deletion requests/File:Caliwood - 01.jpg y Commons:Deletion requests/File:Caliwood - 04.jpg. Las solicitudes fueron atendidas por diferentes usuarios y llegaron a conclusiones contrarias, a pesar de tratar sobre el mismo tema. 01 fue mantenido pero 04 recibió la pena de borrado. El archivo 03 fue borrado sin mediar solicitud, por lo que no se me permitió argumentar defensa.

Petición de restauración directamente a los administradores

Para el archivo 03 se pidió la restauración al usuario NahidSultan, quien fue el encargado de borrarla, pero no se recibió ningún tipo de respuesta. En el caso del archivo 04, el usuario Natuur12 rechazó el argumento sobre la existencia de la libertad de panorama en museos, por lo que el archivo no fue restaurado.

Conclusiones

Como se ha demostrado la libertad de panorama en Colombia sí aplica para museos. Según la Decisión andina 351 de 1993 hay una excepción a los derechos de autor para obras exhibidas de forma permanente en lugares abiertos al público, y la Dirección Nacional del Derecho de autor define los museos en Colombia como instituciones permanentes, abiertas al público y que exhiben obras, De esta manera el argumento dado por el administrador Natuur12 carece de validez. Pido en consecuencia la restauración (undeletion) de los archivos File:Caliwood - 03.jpg y File:Caliwood - 04.jpg

English
Decision 351 of the Andean Community of Nations

Colombia has ratified the Andean Decision 351 of 1993, common rule about copyright and related rights of the Andean Community of Nations and in its Chapter VII deals with exceptions to copyright. Article 22 reads: Without prejudice to that put forth in the Chapter 5 and in the previous article, it will be legal to realize, without authorization from the author and without the payment of any remuneration, the following acts:...h) Realizing the reproduction, emitting by radio diffusion or public transmission by cable, of the image of an architectural work, of a work of fine arts, of a photographic work or of a work of applied art, that is found situated in permanent form in a place open to the public.[1] The bold is mine. This exception to the rule corresponds to the figure of freedom of panorama and is already contained in Commons in Commons:Freedom of panorama#Andean Community of Nations (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru).

Museum as a permanent establishment open to the public

The National Copyright Administration, an official body under the Ministry of the Interior defines a museum in its Circular No 08 of 15 September 2003 as a non-profit, permanent institution in the service of society and its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study and enjoyment.[2] Again bold letters are mine. This definition accepted by the Colombian State is the same given by the International Council of Museums in Article 2, paragraph 1 of its statutes,[3] and collected identically in the statutes of the Colombian Committee of the International Council of Museums.[4]

About the case of deleted images

In the specific case regards to this Undeletion request, the deletion of three (3) files where proposed: File:Caliwood - 01.jpg (01), File:Caliwood - 03.jpg (03) and File:Caliwood - 04.jpg. Files 01 and 03 received a deletion request. In both cases I asked keep the images as they are protected by the Freedom of Panorama (FOP), as seen in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Caliwood - 01.jpg and Commons:Deletion requests/File:Caliwood - 04.jpg. The requests were handled by different users and reached opposite conclusions, despite trying about the same topic. 01 was keeped but 04 received the penalty of deletion. The File 03 was deleted without a request, so I was not allowed to argue defense.

Undeletion request directly to the administrator

For the File 03 was asked the undeletion to the user NahidSultan, who was responsible for deleting it, but received no response. In the case of the File 04, the user Natuur12 rejected the argument of the existence of Freedom of Panorama in museums, and the file was not undeleted.

Conclusions

As demonstrated, the Freedom of Panorama in Colombia applies to museums. According to the Andean Decision 351 of 1993 there is an exception to copyright for works displayed permanently in places open to the public, and the National Administration of Copyright in Colombia defines museums as permanent institutions, open to the public and exhibiting works, so the argument given by the administrator Natuur12 is invalid. Therefore I ask the undeletion of files File:Caliwood - 03.jpg and File:Caliwood - 04.jpg

Perhaps we could use some of this text to update our FOP-section if it turns out that the analysis is legit? My point was that we need some evidence that museum are covered by FOP. We cannot just assume it. (Which is a valid argument as per com:PCP) When I closed this DR I did a little search to find how other admins interpertated Colombian FOP. If we undelete this file Commons:Deletion requests/File:"Mano Izquierda", Museo Botero de Bogotá.JPG, Commons:Deletion requests/File:"Pareja", Museo Botero de Bogotá.JPG, Commons:Deletion requests/File:Busto retrospectivo de mejor (1933) by Salvador Dalí at Botero Museum in Bogotá, Colombia 2014-06-16 21-50.jpg, Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Goelette.Cardabela and Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Pipeafcr should be reconsidered.

Natuur12 (talk) 17:43, 21 January 2016 (UTC) PS. those 33 country's mentioned by Jim probably also include countries for which there is no valid FOP-provision for museum but do have an "open to the public"-clause like the Netherlands.
Natuur12, your PS is correct -- I said only that 33 countries allow some indoor places without admission charges. However as far as I know the Netherlands is the only one of the 33 which does not allow FOP in free museums. I have a summary at User:Jameslwoodward/Sandbox2 which I use as a quick reference and which I think is correct. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:57, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Hmm. Very prominent in the upper left corner of the page is "Copyright 2015 c-studio.tistory.com All Rights Reserved". Below the subject photos is a tiny CC-BY icon. Which are we to believe?

Some of their publication are under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, some others are simply not free, so I think they are familiar with different licenses, so here it don't seems to be a mistake. Also their publication is always on the same kind of event. I will say they seems to be pro. Christian Ferrer (talk) 11:21, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Hello, I'm the user who first uploaded those two photos. The day I uploaded them, the tistory page wasn't showing "Copyright 2015 c-studio.tistory.com All Rights Reserved" in the upper left corner. It was added while files were waiting for license review. If I'm not mistaken, in other cases with license colliding, the "all rights reserved" claim overrode the Commons license. --Chiyako92 (talk) 13:39, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
1/ CC-BY is irrevocable. 2/These images are always currently tagged with the CC BY icon. 3/"Copyright 2015 c-studio.tistory.com All Rights Reserved" is somewhat tagged by default in all their pages. 4/It's quite ordinary to have a copyrighted notice for a web site and the content is indeed copyrighted until further notice, and here the notice is the CC BY icon with the link available. 5/Is there a good reason, or at least just one thing (a flagrant copyvio exemple), that allow us to think they are not the copyright owners? Christian Ferrer (talk) 14:19, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
I've just noticed that the website says "Copyright 2015", but the photo is from 2014: does this change anything? Also, there's no reason to doubt that copyright doesn't belong to them. --Chiyako92 (talk) 15:54, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
The general copyright in the top left appears to be a page header which is common to all of their pages. If there is a more specific license attached to particular content, that should probably be respected. The "collision" is when there are contradictory licenses applied to the same particular content -- for example, a Flickr CC-BY license, but then specific text in the image description indicating a different license. A general site license should not collide with a specific license mentioned on a specific page though. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:26, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
@Jim: Sorry for late reply, I was enjoying my new years' holiday. It looks like the two images are captures from the youtube video above, and (if that's true,) youtube license should be checked, rather than tistory one.

File:Akrotiri Westhaus Schiffsfresko Umzeichnung Schiff A 01.jpg

and File:Akrotiri Westhaus Schiffsfresko Umzeichnung Schiff A 02.jpg

Photograph of the original, more than 3500 years old painting

The file is a derivative work from a fresco of the minoan civilization, the fresco ship procession or flotilla, find at the archaeological site of Akrotiri (Santorini). The drawing are published in Das Schiffsfresko von Akrotiri, Thera by Spyridon Marinatos (in Seewesen by Dorothea Gray, Archaeologia Homerica, 1974, page G 140), the draftsman is unknown (not named). It is a reproduction without threshold of originality by the draftsman.

I think you forget that until the 1999 Bridgeman vs Corel decision, a photo of a 2D work could have its own copyright anywhere in the world. Photos of 2D works are still under copyright in many countries. There is no case law anywhere that suggests that a hand drawing of a 2D work does not have its own copyright. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:09, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
I deleted these two images since they were duplicated from a book with no indication what that book may or may not have used as a reference. After reading a long wall of text on my talk page - some of which was less than polite - I have continued to consider the situation. This morning there was another prod on this - to come to UNDEL and offer opinion. I am appreciative of the new information as to what mural and so on was depicted in the drawing. I still think, as I thought when I deleted the images, and Jim concurs above, that the hand-drawn work contains its own copyright starting in 1974 with its publication. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:36, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Well, technically, Bridgeman vs Corel derives from 1991's Feist vs Rural, where sweat of the brow was determined to be invalid as a copyrightable criteria (which went both ways in previous cases). The question is if a drawing is intended to be a "slavish copy" of the original -- down to every line, etc., and adding no additional expression -- i.e. where the contours of every line are essentially determined by the original work, rather than being new authorship. I'm guessing new drawings would usually have identifiable differences in delineation which could easily create a new copyright, but I can't see the original. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:46, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
If the work was drawn in black and white then the conception of the original work in different color could be an instance of originality. Even if the drawing was based on an exact almost photocopy like black and white photograph, because the photograph would not be an identical copy there could still be originality in choosing what film/lighting to use. Rybkovich (talk) 00:01, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Turning something from color to black and white would not be a copyrightable change (at least in the U.S.). Simply changing colors isn't either -- the U.S. Copyright Office generally does not treat coloration as a copyrightable property (unless it gets to the level of colorizing a black and white film). Choosing film is not a copyrightable property... the lighting might be. It's not the fact that choices were made from available options that makes something copyrightable; the U.S. office looks for creativity in the result itself. See the Copyright Compendium chapter 3, sections 310.8 and 3.13.4(K). Section 3.13.4(A) goes over what is "mere copies" -- the closest thing to this situation would be An exact reproduction of the Mona Lisa that cannot be distinguished from the original. But, odds are decent a drawing of a wall painting would end up with its own copyright. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:42, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
I understand the general rule of turning something into black and white via a photocopy or black and white film. But a strong argument can be made that an artist makes a creative decision (in a sketch or a painting) of what shade of grey - hardness of application on a pencil sketch or the combination of black and white paint as a representation - to represent the intensity of color in each section of the original work. I see it as an inverse of converting a black and white film into colored by hand colorizing a black and white film. That's what I meant re black and white drawing being a "conception of the original work in a different color" by conception I meant thinking through a conversion of colors in separate sections of the original work into intensity of grays. Something that cannot be done through a simple color conversion formula when making complex sketches and paintings. A hand sketched or painted reproduction of a Mona Lisa is likely to never be considered as an "exact copy" unless it is a photocopy or nearly identical photograph but in black and white. So I think that an originality argument based on the color conversion can be made in this case. Rybkovich (talk) 22:33, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
The point in colorization of the film is the number (and coordination) of colors being chosen throughout the film -- the color choices themselves are not copyrightable, but the specific selection and arrangement of them are -- I'm not sure they would even allow registration on a colorized photograph. The point you make is exactly what the Office is describing when they say: As a general rule, the Office will not consider possible design alternatives that the author may have considered when he or she created the work. Likewise, the Office will not consider potential variations in the use of the work, such as the fact that a work could be presented in a different color, in a different size, or with a different orientation. The creative process often requires many choices involving the size, coloring, orientation, proportion, configuration, perspective, or other constituent elements of the work. These types of choices are present in every work of authorship. It is not the variety of choices available to the author that must be evaluated, but the actual work that the author created. In the end, they are going to choose *some* shade of gray, and that individual choice is not copyrightable. Nor would just a handful of them be, most likely. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:23, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Also note that the drawing copies some, but not all, of the defects and marks in the substrate. The decorative 6-like painting on the side of the boat are much more prominent in the drawing than on the original. The copy is, therefore, much clearer than the original. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:52, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
The purpose of copying in a scientific context, however, mean that the image corresponds as closely as possible to the original. Originality on the part of the draftsman is not desirable. --Oltau (talk) 04:00, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't understand your reasoning. It is obvious that the B&W drawing is not copied "as closely as possible to the original" -- as I said above, there are significant differences where the creator of the drawing left out defects in the substrate and added or emphasized details that were faded or abraded by time. All of that (and US law) gives the drawing a new copyright. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:51, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
I can't agree to your assessment. A faithful copy is not original, and originality under US copyright law is only creative input. Skill and effort is not enough! Faithful reconstruction, including parts that were poorly preserved, or enhancement of contrast is by no means original or creative. We all are used to widely inflated copyright claims and most of us have fallen victim to a FUD strategy by copyright holders and their PR-departments. The law is by far not as wide as the IP-industry claims. Challenges to copyright based on lack of originality succeed quite often. I don't see anything eligible for copyright in this drawing and recommend its restoration. --h-stt !? 11:20, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Suzanne A. Rogers x 5 images

All images were cleared for use by the subject and her PR team. They did not provide credits as they were shots taken by press photographers. All parties have given permission.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Four of these list the author as "unknown". The fifth lists George Pimentel. Since a license for a photograph requires a written agreement, signed by the photographer, it is not possible that the four unknown photographers have given permission and at the same time you don't know who they are.

In the case of images taken by third parties, Commons policy requires that the actual copyright holders -- the five photographers -- send free licenses directly to OTRS. Alternately, the person responsible for getting the licenses, could send copies of the five licenses to OTRS. Note that in either case, the licenses will have to be in a form such as CC-BY which allows use anywhere by anybody for any purpose, including commercial use. That means, for example, that anyone could take an image from Commons and sell posters or tee-shirts of Ms. Rogers. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:48, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

I want to use that image in कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते... page of sa.wikipedia.org. Thank you... NehalDaveND (talk) 17:04, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Aside from the fact that the user uploaded this a second time after it had been deleted, I deleted it because it is out of scope. It is a personal creation of a non-notable artist, which we don't keep on Commons. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:02, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
@Jameslwoodward: I am very sorry, because I made you angry with upload again same named image without undelete process. Because I was not aware about udelete process. In you comment I found this process. So I try here. Please forgive me. I am very very sorry for that. In you oppose I found two points. 1. Noneducational Image 2. non-notable artist.
  1. In Sanskrit Gita is the most famous book. In India every home has Srimad Bhagavad Gita. In India many state governments are teaching Gita in school and colleges. They took Gita as part of syllabus. Every year some governments and schools are taking exams on Gita. In this Image you can see The Prime Minister of India gives blessing to winner of Gita Chanting. If this is not education, than what is education ? See other ex. 1, 2
  2. non-notable artist - In that image I used this image. This image is on commons. The text is on commons. Now both are in commons. That image fulfills five points of SCOPE.
  • Must be a media file.
  • Must be of an allowable free file format.
  • Must be freely licensed or public domain.
  • Must be realistically useful for an educational purpose.
  • Must not contain only excluded educational content.
  1. This is a media.
  2. Both text and image are free file format.
  3. Both text and image are in public domain.
  4. This image which combined with text and image is realistically useful for an educational purpose.
  5. It not contain only excluded educational content.
  6. Not Problem of PD/FOP too.

I have seen so many examples like this image. See examples.

I know you are not my enemy. You are doing this as per policy. So Please tell me what are the differences between my image an other images? NehalDaveND (talk) 09:16, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

It is never correct to argue that other stuff exists -- that there are other examples of something that has been deleted. My best estimate is that at least 1% of Commons files -- more than a quarter million images -- should be deleted for one reason or another. The ten you cite above are in that category and, and unless this closes on your side of the request, they will get a DR promptly after this closes.
The point here is that your putting an image together with text (which is not on Commons, by the way) is your acting as an artist, which we do not permit. Note that none of the ten images you cite above are in use on a WMF mainpage anywhere. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:50, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
@Jameslwoodward: I am very sorry for again and again argue. If I am capturing an image with my camera, than I put in this image. That will be fine ? Because I asked my friend to find a temple where Krishan and Arjuna are there. After that I took image and put text into image. That image will be same as now. But different will be only one. Image will be taken by me. Other design will be same. Please tell me. NehalDaveND (talk) 11:06, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
No, it does not matter where the image came from. Combining an image with text is a creative act which we do not permit. Commons is a repository of media files -- mostly images -- that are useful for an educational purpose. While that includes art of all kinds from notable artists, it does not include creative works from non-notable people. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:12, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
@Jameslwoodward: If I don't put any other image in my image. Only text can be put or that too not possible ? Because image and text are can't use together so I want to use only text with design. I think this is my last and final question. Can you bring me to that policy where commons not allow text and image combination is written. Because for my knowledge I need that. Thank you.

@NehalDaveND: Hi,
You said that you don't understand COM:SCOPE, and that there is no version in your language (Hindi). That's a pity, but your English is quite good, so you should be able to read and understand that page. In sa:कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते..., there is already an image, which is much better suited than your own art work. So your images probably fall under Artwork without obvious educational use, including non-educational artwork uploaded to showcase the artist's skills. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:46, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you Yann! I think you answered regarding your talk page. So I became confuse. Therefore I am repeating my question.
  • @Jameslwoodward: If I don't put any other image in my image. Only text can be put or that too not possible ? Because image and text are can't use together so I want to use only text with design. Like this https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:BG_2.47.jpg I think this is my last and final question.

File:Plan hopital broussais.gif Hospital building map France

Map of buildings locations on a hospital campus in France. Can the images be temporarily undeleted? I am pretty sure about the legal standards, the issue is how they apply to this particular image.

This map is not copyrightable in the US. Per a major US map copyright case - Sparaco v. Lawler 303 f.3d 460 (2nd cir. 2002)]. "To the extent that the site plan sets forth the existing physical characteristics of the site, including its shape and dimensions, the grade contours, and the location of existing elements, it sets forth facts;  copyright does not bar the copying of such facts." The map here is only a representation of specific locations. I am not as sure re France but it does seem that, like in the US creativity is also required. Here is what I found: "A 1996 judgement of the Court of Appeal of Douai decided that a map consisting of the various wine-producing regions of France, annotated to show the year and very superficial remarks concerning the vintage of each wine domain, was not original because it merely reproduced data trivial both in its presentation in the form of a map and in the remarks concerning the vintages."
There is practically no creativity here. Only different colors to mark different sectors of the hospital campus. Rybkovich (talk) 16:37, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

This image was deleted following a formal deletion procedure, Commons:Deletion requests/File:Plan hopital broussais.gif. It looks like there are two different logos on this image also. Thuresson (talk) 18:20, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

If you are referring to the Aissistance Publique logo then yes you are correct, it does seem like it is above the french originality standard. If so then I withdraw.

Dear friends, These files are possible download and use. Let see authors webpage:http://www.politicalislam.com/trilogy-project/statistical-islam/. There is written: Dr. Bill Warner’s statistical research is available for download and use. I uploaded these files again. Thank you for understanding.

A.K--Anton Kufr (talk) 20:44, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Although you say, "I uploaded these files again", I don't not see that you actually did so. Please do not do that, as it is a violation of Commons rules and wastes our resources, both time and computer space.

First, the statement at http://www.politicalislam.com/trilogy-project/statistical-islam/ is, as you say,

"Dr. Bill Warner’s statistical research is available for download and use."

I'm not sure that that constitutes a free license such as we require.

  • It is not irrevocable.
  • It is not clear that the files are free for any use, including commercial use.
  • The site is not owned by Bill Warner (which is a pseudonym), but by CSPI, LLC. Has the person behind the pseudonym actually given the LLC a formal license to his work?
  • Every page on the site, including the one cited, has a formal "© 2007-2015 CSPI, LLC. all rights reserved."

On the other hand, I'm not at all sure that either of these images has a copyright -- they are both simple graphs that could be drawn with Excel. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:48, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Jacobs Field logo 2.png

The logo contains only words ("JACOBS" and "FIELD") and geometric shapes (diamond, home plate, and a banner), thus being below the TOO. --JonRidinger (talk) 05:11, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

It's not simply if it is made up of geometric shapes -- if the arrangement of those shapes is creative, that can be copyrightable too. I don't see that we have anything of that complexity that has been ruled uncopyrightable. Carl Lindberg (talk) 05:41, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Carl pretty much took the words out of my mouth. I'd expect that was above the threshold. - Jmabel ! talk 05:43, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Hmm -- I don't like disagreeing with Carl, but if I read the Nikken letter against this, I have to come out on the side of no copyright. It's just a stylized baseball diamond with lettering. The lettering cannot have a USA copyright and I don't see that the diamond is more creative than the Nikken or New York Arrows logos. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:05, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
I think it's the parts of the banner sticking out on the left and right which takes it over the line for me, if I'm looking at the right one. I think if it was just the diamond with home plate and the lettering, and a simple box around "Field", I might go the other way -- but the banner adds more elements and arrangement to me. It has striping and indented ends... by itself not necessarily copyrightable, but when taken in combination with all the rest, and maybe the vertical placement, I think it does add enough. The Nikken logo was two uncopyrightable elements surrounded by a box -- the guidelines say they generally don't give an arrangement copyright on just 2-3 elements. If you go look at the letter of the Car Credit City logo, you'll see a second version of that logo with surrounding borders and lettering which *was* ruled copyrightable -- the particular combination of uncopyrightable borders was enough (just barely, I'm sure, but enough). I think with the banner this logo exceeds that. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:46, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I knew that disagreeing with Carl was a mistake -- the logo he referes to above is simpler than this..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:11, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

also File:Jacobs Field logo.png

Same as my request for File:Jacobs Field 2.png. This logo also does not have anything beyond text and shapes. The only difference from the other logo is the addition of vertical rectangles and stars to symbolize the light towers. --JonRidinger (talk) 05:19, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This one might go the other way. Showing the light towers as bars with stars seems to me to add just enough creativity to put it over the line. See my comment above. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:08, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
  • It is a fact that the arrangement is elaborated, the green background behind the red letters help to create a sensation of delph of field, and is also a possible image of a (green) field. The folded shape of the ribbon (banner) also helps create volume. The empty bottom balance with the colored top and complete the square background. Artistic? yes it is IMO.

Hallo,

ich möchte um Wiederherstellung bitten - unter den Vorgaben von Wikipedia soll ausdrücklich für Software Artikel in der standardiserten Infobox ein Logo eingesetzt werden! Warum wird dieses einfach ohne jegliche Diskussion gelöscht? In allen anderen Software-Artikeln die in Wikipedia gelistet sind, befinden sich doch auch Logos an genau dieser Stelle in den Infoboxen. Was also war bei dieser Datei der Grund sie zu löschen?

_GreyhoundSoftware (talk)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It was deleted at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Greyhound-software V2.jpg without any discussion because you did not choose to discuss it and no one else thought it was worth discussing. We delete around 2,000 files every day and only a small fraction of those -- fewer than 100 -- get any discussion. It was deleted as spam, apparently having been removed from an article on WP:DE. I am inclined to think that lack of notability is the issue here -- the name does not show up on the first page of a Google search.

There is also the problem of copyright. It may not have one -- I'm not sure of the level of threshold of originality in Germany, but if it does, it appears with an explicit copyright notice at https://greyhound-software.com/, so keeping it here would require that an authorized official of the company send a free license to OTRS. .     Jim . . . .

официальные документы (законы, решения и т.п.), а также их официальные переводы;
официальные символы и знаки (флаги, гербы, ордена, денежные знаки и т.п.);
произведения народного творчества;
сообщения о новостях дня или сообщения о текущих событиях, имеющие характер обычной пресс-информации;
результаты, полученные с помощью технических средств, предназначенных для производства определенного рода, без осуществления человеком творческой деятельности, непосредственно направленной на создание индивидуального произведения."

I looked at the law and here's what I found:
"Article 1044. Works which aren't objects of copyright:
official documents (laws, decisions, etc.), and also their official translations;
official symbols and signs (flags, coats of arms, awards, bank notes, etc.);
works of national creativity;
messages on daily news or messages on the current events having character of usual press information;
the results received by means of the technical means intended for production of a certain sort without implementation by the person of the creative activity which is directly directed on creation of individual work."
From your photos are there are photos of things which are included into this list?
About those things which don't enter the list above, in your photos are there are objects that are older than-
Article 1065. Period of validity of copyright
Copyright works during all life of the author and fifty years after his death, except the cases provided by the present article and other laws. Rybkovich (talk) 20:46, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
    • Все они авторские. У них нет замены. Мне не понятны критерии удаления фото. На фото были и здания, часовня, надгробные памятники, памятники установленные на могилах воинов защищавших нашу родину в ВОВ, парки, Здания входящие в список Архитектурных памятников Узбекистана. --Bobyrr (talk) 05:05, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
The deleted images were all of sculpture or architecture created in the last 70 years. All of the the pictured works therefore have copyrights which have not expired. Each of the photos infringed on one or more of those copyrights, so the photos cannot be kept on Commons without permission from the architect or sculptor. .     Jim . . . .

  • Ну судя по вашему ответу тогда надо спросить авторов - архитекторов разрешение на фотографирование постаревших: Лувр, Эфили башню, Китайскую стену, бред. --Bobyrr (talk) 05:48, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
      • А теперь по сути даже если я допустим найду мастера мраморщика по имени скажем Шухрат изготовившего надгробный памятник на могиле Бенькова возьму разрешение на публикацию, то кто и как будет это проверять????? Бред. Даже если я найду авторов установивших Стеллу на могиле воинов погибших в ВОВ на Домрабате установленного в 1945 году то как и кто это буде проверять ????? Бред. Ваши требования не уместны. --Bobyrr (talk) 05:48, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Again -- last time -- the Louvre and the Great Wall are not under copyright because they were built many years ago. Also, in many countries (but not Uzbekistan) there is a special exception to copyright law that allows photographs of copyrighted architecture and works of art to be published. You have linked COM:FOP yourself, so I assume you have read it, so why do you insist that breaking the rules shown there is OK?

Yes, as you say, in those countries that do not have the special exception, in order to show pictures of copyrighted works of art, the uploader must get a free license from the creator. The two images which you nominated for deletion, File:MASamarkandAlai1.jpg and File:Samarkand Trash (3915246898).jpg do not have anything significant in them which has a copyright. .     Jim . . . .
