Image now has the right licence on Flickr 1. Zwerg Nase (talk) 22:24, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

I see that a lot of later requests have already been dealt with. This one here should be a no-brainer. It would be highly appreciated if someone could come back to me on it. Zwerg Nase (talk) 17:12, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Actually, it's not a no-brainer. I didn't touch it because I couldn't tell whether the Flickr account actually owns the copyright or if this is Commons:FLICKRWASHING. On another look, however, it seems unlikely that it is Flickrwashing -- he has uploaded thousands of racing images, so I'll Symbol support vote.svg Support restoration. .     Jim . . . .

File:MirandaVidakDoveFashionWeek.jpg

This image is not copyrighted or restricted, it a public image from a public event, a Fashion Week in Zagreb Croatia, in 2012, posted on many many websites. One example is http://www.story.hr/galerija/revijom-envy-rooma-story-je-proslavio-10-rodendan. The original image was posted on the website - www.novaarena.net, and the website has since been deleted. I don't believe this image has been published in Italy, since the person on the question is a Croatian celebrity, not Italian. The photographer of the image is called Robert Gašpert, and he does't have any licensing on his photos, that are taken in public place. Can you please tell me what is the problem with this publicly used image on many other websites? And can it be restored?

thank you!

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Although you claimed that the image was your own work when you uploaded it, you admit above that that is not correct. With very few exceptions, none of which apply here, all created works have a copyright until it expires, usually 70 years after the death of the creator. This image is no exception and since you did not create it, you must prove that it is freely licensed.

Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Frontera_Marítima_Chile_-_Perú.jpg

(After a year, no questions please) According to the DR, Gunnex (known to questionate foreing legislation) tried to questionate Elelch, a peruvial that seems to know well the peruvian legislation (and claimed to be an attorney). As the file is effectively in the PD according to the legislation of Peru, why the file was deleted, heeding the comments of the foreing instead of the local? --Amitie 10g (talk) 03:34, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

In regards to the deletion discussion, where article 9 of the copyright law is discussed, and the issue of the whether the term "text" referring to visual info or not.
"Art. 9. The following are not eligible for copyright protection: ... (b) official texts of legislative, administrative or judicial character, or official translations thereof, without prejudice to the obligation to respect the texts and mention the source"
If we do a straightforward interpretation of "official texts of legislative, administrative or judicial character", and exclude maps. Then can we consider if, as mentioned in the discussion, the map would qualify under "Art. 9(d): simple facts or data."
If we get to that point can we temporarily undelete the image to see if it can be interpreted as "simple facts or data".
PS per the copyright law document a map falls under "Art. 5 (i): illustrations, maps, outlines, plans, diagrams and three-dimensional works relating to geography, topography, architecture or science." Rybkovich (talk) 06:41, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It's at http://cde.3.elcomercio.pe/ima/0/0/8/5/0/850732.jpg (It appears on a copyrighted newspaper page, but I don't think that's important to this discussion.)

It appears to be a map produced as part of a decision of the International Court of Justice, so I'd guess that Dutch law applies, not Peruvian and that since it is recent, it will be under copyright for many years. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:20, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

You are right re source, it is part of the International Court of Justice January 27, 2014 decision. The illustration is not part of the decision, only illustrations numbers 2 and 4 are included. This map is practically same as, the main difference is an added non graphic data table, the map identified as illustration number 3 in File:ICJ Peru Chile judgment map3.png. Per wiki article the court is a branch of the UN. In the image the file is custom tagged as {UN map} with a public domain reference to http://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/english/about.htm. So I think it should be considered either as in the public domain as a UN document, or as a non-copyrightable derivation of a UN document.}} Rybkovich (talk) 19:55, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
PS in the newspaper the woman appears to be holding the map with the table. So its 99% to be an official judgment related UN document. Rybkovich (talk) 20:03, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
Rybkovich, you cite http://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/english/about.htm as if it were a free license. It seems to me to be unfree. It very explicitly says that you may use the map for any purpose provided that you remove any reference to the UN. It goes on to say:
"We do not permit posting of our maps into your web site (if the map is not part of a specific publication, book or article) because we revise the maps very often and want to ensure that only an updated map is posted on the Web. You can however create links to our site instead. No permission is required for the link."
That reads to me like an explicit prohibition on exactly what we do here.
.     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:50, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
Got it, it is crystal clear upon a re-read of their policy. So this becomes a very clear that the deletion should be upheld. I will strike out the conclusion of my previous post.
PS Per the UN policy I think we should change the description on the tag that maps can be used as derivative works only and can not be uploaded as they are I will raise this issue on village pump. template:UN map Rybkovich (talk) 17:49, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Request for undeletion of pictures with valid copyright permissions deleted from article

Hello

The below mentioned images have been deleted from the article "Institute of Driving Training and Research".

  • File:IDTR Loni03.jpg
  • File:IDTR Loni02.jpg
  • File:IDTR Sarai Kale Khan.jpg
  • File:IDTR Rohtak.jpg
  • File:IDTR Bahadurgarh.jpg
  • File:IDTR Loni01.jpg
  • File:IDTR Rohtak01.jpg
  • File:IDTR Bahadurgarh01.jpg

Our firm has worked on four of these prestigious projects and the photographs have been clicked by our own professional photographer during the progress of the project.

The article is for the description of the institute and the photographs have been used to give the readers a view about how the institutes at different places look like and how are the facilities designed, in order to give more visual information to the users.

We would request the undeletion team to kindly consider this and process the undeletion procedure for the above.

Regards --Parulgupta03 (talk) 03:34, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

@Parulgupta03: Hello, you need to get permission from your photographer if s/he wants to publish their photographs under a free license (see COM:L). After getting the permission, please ask him/her to send an e-mail to the OTRS to confirm that s/he is the copyright holder of the images. Then our OTRS volunteers will process their request in weeks (or rarely, months). Thanks, Poké95 03:40, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Hold on. This looks very much like a violation of COM:ADVERT here and on WP:EN. It is also clear that Parulgupta03 is in violation of the rules on Conflict of Interest both here and on WP:EN. I doubt very much that the WP:EN article will be kept, so sending a license to OTRS would be a waste of time. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:42, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

File:DC Talk.jpg

I request this file to be undeleted for the reason that I have been wrongly accused of using a file that had been copyrighted. I created this file by myself and I did not copy any other individual or group's work. I made an original collage of un-copyrighted images of each of the members of the Christian vocal trio DC Talk. Please read this message and see to it that my problem is solved. Thank you. --WIKIswagmaster842 (talk) 18:08, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Where did you get the "uncopyrighted" images from? Did you take them yourself? --rimshottalk 19:24, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There is no such thing as an "un-copyrighted" image -- with minor exceptions which don't apply here, all created works have a copyright until it expires, usually 70 years after the creator's death. All three of these images appear on the Web in at least one place with a clear and explicit copyright notice. Your collage is a derivative work and infringes on all three copyrights. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:47, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

File:George Papahatzis 1964-10-03.jpg

File:George_Papahatzis_1964-10-03.jpg was found in http://pandemos.panteion.gr/ library of Panteion University.

Symbol support vote.svg Support Legal Terms of Use are available online at http://pandemos.panteion.gr/images/Oroi_xrhsh_Pandhmou.pdf. It reads (translating from Greek and summarizing) that everything published is free for any non-commercial use and as long credits are attached. Editing is allowed but it should be clearly stated as an edit and referenced to original work.

I believe the file should be undeleted and we could somewhere add credits to Pandemos Library along with a mention of editing (i.e. cropped image, slightly retouched) and a link to the respective Pandemos webpage.

DataDispenser (talk) 01:43, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Does not allow commercial use. See Commons:Licensing. Thuresson (talk) 04:20, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Wait, it seems to be an old file, so the library cannot hold copyright on it. @DataDispenser: Who is the author, when was the author's death, and what country this work was made? I will look if this file is in the public domain. Thanks, Poké95 08:08, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't think so. The subject is Georgios Papachatzis (1905 - 1991). Greece is pma 70. The file name says 1964 and the file description calls him "Rector", which he was in 1964-65. Even if the photographer dropped dead the day after he took this picture, it would be under copyright until 1/1/2035 (and, of course, he could very well still be alive). THe only way to restore this image is to have the actual copyright holder send a free license to OTRS. Although as noted above, the University purports to be licensing the image, they may own a copy of the image, but it is unlikely that they own the right to license it. That almost certainly rests with the photographer or his heirs. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:26, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support @Pokéfan95: & @Jameslwoodward: Correct data. Picture was taken on 3 Oct 1964. The photographer may still be alive but he has no rights on the picture since he was a University employee not a freelancer. Nowadays Universities and other public institutions cooperate with freelancers for certain events but at that time almost everything was done internally (a huge public sector!). After all, this University is a public institution that claims owning the rights and I see no reason questioning them. The Legal Terms of Use available at University's photo library reads that University owns everything published and defines the terms as mentioned before. DataDispenser (talk) 11:44, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

If the copyright is owned by the University, they would have the ability to license it. However, a license that restricts commercial use is not "free", so is not a valid license for Commons. User:Thuresson mentioned this. The copyright could not have expired, so we would need evidence for a license conforming to the terms at Commons:Licensing or http://freedomdefined.org . A non-commercial restriction inhibits the freedom of distribution, so is not "free". So, unless the University comes up with a different license either documented on the site or sent via COM:OTRS, it's Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose for me. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:06, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
@Thuresson:, @Pokéfan95:, @Jameslwoodward:, @Clindberg:, you are right that given the non-commercial restriction it cannot be considered "free" as defined. But it can be accepted under the license of "fair use". Non-free content are also accepted under certain conditions. 9 out of 10 criteria regarding non-free content are already met. What I suggested was that a by adding credits to Pandemos Library and a link to the original file, the 10th criterion is also met.

Restore File:74277841 1981-01-19 panorama tony benn euro referendum.jpg

As I mentioned on the talk page of the file which was deleted yesterday (as well as on the talk page of the user who deleted it before I was referred over here), the image was in the public domain as evidenced by this Guardian article (See the caption: "The Daily Mail gleefully reports Denis Healey attacking Tony Benn in 1975. Photograph: Public domain"). Zumoarirodoka (talk) 16:57, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

maisons cjdt2.jpg

These are two old photos which I had permission to use and which I rearranged into a single photo while putting together a draft article on the Cité-Jardin du Tricentenaire. The draft article is not ready for submission and I would appreciate it if you would put the photo back. There is also another photo called plan.jpg which I also have permission to use. It is also in draft form and has not been submitted for review.

In both instances I indicated the source with a superscript which is later referenced in the text of the article. If I need to reference this more dynamically, kindly advise.

Cité-Jardin du Tricentenaire de Montréal title=File:Maisons_cjdt2.jpg

A similar photo is posted on our Association website, which is not copywrited (https://sitearcj.wordpress.com/cite-jardin-en-quelques-mots/). The webmaster gave me explicit permission to copy the two photos and integrate them for the draft article. I did the integration myself in photofiltre. We likely will update these photos when there is Spring and/or Summer foliage and we can take better pictures than we can at the current time.

Further, I listed with superscript the source of the photo, the superscript bearing the same number as the reference in the draft article.

Kindly give me some feedback here because I am not at all clear re your objections to the use of this photo.

Thank you.

Several freely licensed retro computer images

The above files are illustrative of simple "home brew" computer graphics on retro systems on such as Sinclair computers and the Atari ST. I created all computer code and data to generate all graphics in those files myself and released all files under a free license.

They were speedy deleted on grounds of "out of project scope". I don't mind at all having a discussion on the scope of these images or otherwise if they are nominated for deletion in the usual way. However they were speedy deleted, which in my opinion is incorrect as they did not meet the criteria for speedy deletion. Also, I was not notified of their deletion therefore I could not argue against it at the time - I only found out they had been deleted a couple of weeks later.

Two files from the same batch were also destined for speedy deletion:-

File:Benkid77 CNPD.png and File:MEMPTR Snake.png

However an admin noticed they should have instead been nominated for deletion rather than speedy deleted and they were ultimately kept per Commons:Deletion requests/File:MEMPTR Snake.png and Commons:Deletion requests/File:Benkid77 CNPD.png.

So please can the above deleted files be restored? If it is still felt that they may be out of scope then there will at least be a chance to discuss this via the normal deletion nomination process. I think some of them at least would be found to be in scope. Some of them have been used in articles already and also by external sites.

The original statement contained within the speedy delete rationale "never-used images" was also factually incorrect.

My argument is not that the files were deleted per-se, simply that they should have been nominated for deletion rather than being speedy deleted as illustrated by the deletion discussions I linked to above.

Rept0n1x (talk) 20:12, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Any comments on this, @Taivo? Thuresson (talk) 21:39, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
I deleted most of the mentioned files speedily per request. I thought, that they are out of scope. Two files I transferred into regular deletion requests, because I thought, that they may illustrate computer game "snake". The other files depicted in my opinion a non-notable computer game. But it was pointed out on the deletion requests, that the files can be used to illustrate game-producing platform or how to call it. If you still think so, then I am not against deleting all mentioned files. Taivo (talk) 12:18, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done: I have to say that I'm rather dubious as to whether these are in fact "realistically useful for an educational purpose" as required by COM:PS, but that's an issue that ought to be dealt with by community discussion and which has been bypassed by speedy deletion. I'm accordingly restoring these images, and if anybody wants to argue that they are not in scope, that can be done via the standard deletion requests. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 13:46, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

A couple of weeks ago, I uploaded this logo which I knew was under a creative commons license. Unfortunately, the website where I took them from was lagging behind and, by mistake, still had a copyright notice on it. This has now been modified and the website includes a copyleft notice specifying a cc-licence which explicitly includes the logo uploaded: http://landwende.de/home/impressum.html

I'm looking for good photos of the Southern Lights to add to the Wanaka wikipedia page ... and your pic http://youngadventuress.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/12039242_10100174174968865_6478147855602476028_n-650x433.jpg looks just perfect for it!

would you be ok with releasing it with an appropriate licence so that we can upload it to Wikipedia? Would try to make sure that it gets tagged with your blog or twitter handle as the source...

File:Peltier Cooling Diagram.jpg Wronfully undeleted!

The image file, Peltier Cooling Diagram.jpg, was removed due to lack of permission. It looks like the written content I provided to the "Operating Principle" section of the "Thermoelectric cooling" article was also removed along with the image. Josh Liegel, owner of the diagram, emailed permissions-commons@wikimedia.org the following message:

"I hereby affirm that I, Josh Liegel, am the creator and/or sole owner of the exclusive copyright of both the work depicted and the media as shown here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Peltier_Cooling_Diagram.jpg I agree to publish the above-mentioned content under the following free license: Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International.[5] 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.

Reason: The source which Jcb claims copyvio from is attributed to the "City of Los Angeles", which the flickr user is the mayor of. Therefore not a copyvio.

Image:Nando Gazzolo 1981.jpeg

Based on this close, this other one and the subsequent discussion, I assume the URAA issue should be ignored and the image restored. --Cavarrone (talk) 02:04, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a scan of a halftone. Since it appears to be a 1981 image, it is PD only if both

  1. it does not qualify for a 70 year pma' Italian copyright -- it is "devoid of creative character" -- and
  2. it was not published anywhere but in Italy.

I think (1) is a close call, particularly since our policy is to be very careful about using the Italian 20 year rule. (2) is harder. Certainly it must be proven that the publication from which this was taken is Italian and not from some other country because almost all other countries have much longer copyright terms. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:08, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Both the conditions are met. The image was published by Radiocorriere magazine N.46 page 19 year 1981 and illustrates a brief interview with the actor, and it is obviously not "devoid of creative character", just an anonymous standard close-up photo without any creativity. For anyone interested, it is still available (and used) on it.wiki [3]. The only concern is if the URAA applies or not. --Cavarrone (talk) 17:23, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
You say "it is obviously not "devoid of creative character"". Perhaps you misunderstand. In order for it to qualify for the 20 year Italian copyright rule, it must be devoid of creative character. If what you say is correct, then it has a 70 year pma copyright. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:25, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
@Jameslwoodward:, it is obviousy a typo. I also explained why it is OBVIOUSLY devoid of creative character. "Anonymous standard close-up photo without any creativity" is clear enough, I think. Everyone can check the image. --Cavarrone (talk) 06:00, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
If the magazine had a copyright notice, it was always copyrighted in the U.S. and did not need URAA restoration. Does the image conform to the {{PD-US-1978-89}} tag as well? I am fairly loath to keep PD-Italy images which were restored by the URAA anyways; those are basically certain to be by living authors and are much more likely to cause issues when used in other countries -- and use in the U.S. is a copyright violation, period, as it would be in many countries outside Italy. Also, while I can't see the picture, I think there were cases where posed portrait photos were considered to be above the PD-Italy threshold. Also, still frames from movies would have a longer copyright in the U.S. regardless, if the movie itself had a copyright notice -- those may be PD-Italy, but they are copyrighted in the U.S. regardless of the URAA. Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:35, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
@Clindberg:, I hope I am not saying something idiotic, but I think the image does not meet {{PD-US-1978-89}} for the simple reason the image was never published in the US (Radiocorriere is a defunct Italian TV-guide magazine which was published only in Italy). For the evalutation of the image, you can check it here, it is still available and used on it.wikipedia under PD-ITALY. --Cavarrone (talk) 06:27, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Publication in Italy would count for "publication" in the U.S. I think both Italy and the U.S. were members of the Universal Copyright Convention which did have some copyright notice awareness; if the magazine had a copyright notice then the U.S. copyright was never lost. Most of the time, we do assume that most foreign publications were without notice (other than books and probably movies), but for relatively recent works that might have changed since there was more awareness. So, even if we were ignoring the URAA, we would have to show how it became PD in the US in the first place (i.e. some avenue given the Commons:Hirtle chart). If it didn't, then the URAA would not matter (though of course the copyright has been restored since if it was lost). Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:46, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Randolph college logo horizontal.png

The image file is the current official logo of Randolph College. It is displayed on the corresponding Wikipedia page for Randolph College as the official logo for that institution. I have the permission of Randolph College to use it on this page.

If there is a standard or process by which this permission can be validated, I would be happy to provide it. (Dmb86 (talk) 18:52, 4 April 2016 (UTC))

Hello, Dmb86. Please forward us the permission to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. We require that the owner makes a clear statement that they release the image under a free license. To help prevent confusion or misunderstandings we really prefer one of the email templates be used. Permission grants must specifically contain a free license grant and may not merely give permissions for Commons or Wikipedia. There is currently a backlog of OTRS requests but if you respond here once the email has been sent, I or another agent can review your ticket. In addition, please attach the file in question so that non-administrators can review the file in question. Riley Huntley (talk) 19:07, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Hello, Riley Huntley. Randolph College will not release its trademarked logo or seal under a free license. The standard across Wikipedia for the logos and marks of academic institutions is a low resolution file released Non-Free under Fair Use. That is what the College will release.
See peer institutions:

— Preceding unsigned comment added by FWTTVK (talk • contribs)
When you uploaded the image you wrote that the photographer is anonymous. What does this mean exactly? That an unknown person took a photo of your father and gave a copy to him? Thuresson (talk) 19:30, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The photograph was taken in 1995, so it must still be under copyright. The only person who can give permission to keep it on Commons is the photographer (or his heir), so if the photographer is actually anonymous, then it is an orphan work and cannot be restored here until its copyright expires. That might be as early as 2045 if the image was first published in Israel, but not until at least 2065 if it was Germany, Switzerland or the UK. If the first publication was here, then it will be PD in 2111.

Only the photograph of the hat has a copyright separate from the copyright for the hat itself. The images of the two drawings are merely reproductions and do not have their own copyrights.

In most cases museums do not own the copyright to art works in their possession -- the copyrights remain with the artists their heirs. Therefore, the OTRS license from the museum must declare that the museum does in fact own the copyrights to the works of art and license them freely.

The only Google hit for this image of Juan Ignacio Blanco cites Commons as the source. However, since this uploader clearly has a poor understanding of "own work" -- see the claim that the two newspaper pages above are his own work -- I think it is very likely that he scanned or photographed a photograph for this upload. .     Jim . . . .

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:The Waifs

"There are many 'proud' or 'experienced' people who make mistakes on the field of copyright" was the comment of the deleting admin, who faces currently his second de-adminship-procedure. Does he really beleave , that a long-time-professional as Rinaldi is not allowed to upload files of her co-workers or employees under a CC licence ? (btw: These files were uploaded by russavia. Is that funny or sad?) 2003:45:5C3D:DF01:1908:4CF3:DD5:4B50 08:49, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose EXIF clearly credits a "marek jezierski". We should therefore a priori treat this exactly like any other case where Person A uploads a photo, where metadata credits Person B: person B needs to confirm license via COM:OTRS. To answer your specific question, no I do not believe that she is allowed to upload co-workers' files under an attribution license without attributing the photo to them, unless she is somehow the copyright holder (a fact we'd need a confirmation/explanation of)... why do you? Storkk (talk) 09:17, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
The problem with the file is that the copyright holder on the EXIF data is different than the stated author on Flickr. We need to get OTRS permission from the copyright holder on the EXIF data, per COM:PCP. Even though these are files that were uploaded by russavia, this case is different now. -- Poké95 09:20, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agreed. When the EXIF doesn't match the uploader or, as in this case, the Flickr user, we require an OTRS license from the person named in the EXIF. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:01, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
I have found out, that she sometimes credits Marek Jezierski as here http://humanstatuebodyart.blogspot.de/2010/11/sea-shepherd-returns-to-bondi-beach.html and sometimes not, as here https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Eva_Rinaldi_Bodyart_(5721165661).jpg . Probably she is the boss. 2003:45:5C3D:DF01:1908:4CF3:DD5:4B50 10:48, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Good catch, thanks. BTW, we would probably need confirmation even if we knew for certain she was the "boss": Australia doesn't have the concept of work for hire, and unless it is clearly specified in the contract, the employee often owns the copyright (see e.g. Insight SRC IP Holdings Pty Ltd v The Australian Council for Educational Research Limited [2012] FCA 779, commentary here). Storkk (talk) 11:08, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. I will study it in the evening. But this will last a bit, because my English is not the best :-). Regards 2003:45:5C3D:DF01:1908:4CF3:DD5:4B50 11:26, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
As far as I understand this little comment, Jezierski's copyright may depend on the agreement between him and Ms. Rinaldi.
I have no flickr account, so I can't ask Eva Rinaldi or Marek Jezierki whether they are interested in an OTRS ticket. Perhaps russavia or another commons user is interested to ask them ? 2003:45:5C3D:DF01:5541:CB9F:114B:8FA5 14:16, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Of course there is a copyright problem. First, the source site may be a "public site" but, like almost all public sites, it has a clear copyright notice. Second, a sixty year old photograph is very recent for copyright purposes. In most countries, the copyright lasts for 70 years after the death of the photographer, so as a general rule we do not assume that a photograph is out of copyright unless it predates 1886. That allows for a photographer born in 1866, taking the photo at age 20 and dying in 1946 at age 80. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 00:28, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Chile has some shorter terms for anonymous works, or works not published 50 years after creation, or if the author died before 1962 (Chile non-retroactively increased to 70 pma recently, so the effective terms are shorter). The problem with anonymous works is that we need to know the photo was published anonymously (or never published at all), not that the author was unknown to a modern web page. It sounds like the image was taken from an actual exhibition, so if there is author or other information on the photo there, that could help clarify things. Where did the photo come from?

It's everyone's Wikipedia, actually, and you're at Wikimedia Commons, which is the corresponding media repository. Did you really take the photo yourself, like you claim? If not, the copyright is owned by the photographer and only the photographer can choose a license. Secondly, how does the image fit in the COM:SCOPE? We're not a personal photo collection, and we're not a resumé database either (nor is Wikipedia). Finally, please don't re-upload deleted content. --rimshottalk 07:02, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I see that the image was used in an article in your sandbox on WP:EN about David Satrio. The article is in Bahasa Indonsesia. If he is a member of your family, as you say above, you are in violation of WMF policies on Conflict of Interest.
The article is in the wrong language for its present location and certainly won't be kept there. It would not be kept there even if it were in English because it describes a man who, while probably a very solid citizen and employee of Microsoft, is not notable. Therefore the image is out of scope for Commons as not filling any educational purpose.
Also, the image appears at https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-satrio-45591a21 without a free license and it appears to be a professional studio portrait. Therefore the copyright almost certainly belongs to the photographer, not you, and it is a copyright violation for you to have uploaded it here.
Finally, As Rimshot says, it is a violation of Commons rules to upload an image a second time after it has been deleted. If you do it again, you may be blocked from editing on Commons. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:26, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

File:2016 EU Referendum HM Government Pamphlet.jpeg

This was speedy deleted, because the uploader was not the copyright holder of the work in question. However at the time of deletion, it was clearly marked that the author was HM Government and was tagged with Template:OGL. The admin who deleted it suggested I find links to show that this is under OGL. The license tags says that almost all works produced by HM Government since 2010 fall under it and I've read the exemptions section and it doesn't fall under any of them. I would also argue that it's likely to not meet the threshold of originality in the UK since it uses a rather simple font and HM Government logo can be claimed as minimal. However, I felt that OGL was the simplest rationale. Jolly Janner (talk) 23:04, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

  • I support the reinstatement of this image. I too checked the details of the OGL licence which states quite clearly that the image may be freely used used with the following exceptions:
This licence does not cover ... departmental or public sector organisation logos, crests and the Royal Arms except where they form an integral part of a document or dataset ...
For the document in question, the royal coat of arms, which are an integral part of the document, occupy less than 1% of the surface area of the document. For the record the document, a copy of which is in front of me, is 210 mm by 147 mm and the coat of arms is 13 mm by 11 mm.
Martinvl (talk) 11:52, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
There may be a misapprehension here. In contrast with the situation in the US, where government publications are by default freely available for reuse, in the UK the default is that government publications are protected by Crown copyright, and cannot be used unless they are explicitly licensed. Licensing of government departmental material under the OGL is generally encouraged by central government, but it is not mandatory and it is certainly not automatic. The official guidance document states quite clearly that "You cannot use information which has not been offered for use expressly under the OGL. You will need to contact the relevant rights owner of the information if no licence or re-use details are given". So before looking at the wording of the OGL and discussing whether the document falls within its terms, there is a prior question to be considered: has the government actually released this particular document under the OGL in the first place? I have the document in front of me, and on the face of it it does not seem to have been released under a free licence. Unless anybody is able to find a government statement (or statement of the Controller of HMSO on the government's behalf) which confirms that the document has been licensed, we have to assume that it remains Crown copyright protected and that we cannot host it. The alternative argument that the text and layout of the front cover does not meet the threshold of originality is a complete non-starter under UK law. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 17:44, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
"www.eureferendum.gov.uk is published under the Open Government Licence, and you can reproduce information from the site as long as you obey the terms of that licence." (www.eureferendum.gov.uk essentially the online version of the leaflet). Jolly Janner (talk) 22:25, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
A secondary issue is the leaflet is itself in violation of copyright - see this. As none of the images are sourced, I would not treat any of the images (or any page that includes an image) as OGL. That prevents Commons upload of the PDF itself, but the front cover is probably OK.--Nilfanion (talk) 22:35, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
To me, that looks like evidence that they got licenses for all the photographs they included... for one of them the putative licensor was not legally able to license it, but that appears to have been (retroactively) corrected. Do you read that article differently? Storkk (talk) 23:45, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
There's a world of difference between getting a license to use a photo in a specific use, and getting that photo released under a free license. The government now has obtained permission to use, and that doesn't mean it sought and received permission to license under OGL. We need to satisfy that stricter standard before we can accept to Commons.--Nilfanion (talk) 23:50, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done Thanks for the link to www.eureferendum.gov.uk, Jolly Janner, that's exactly what we need. This page states that all material on the site is released under the OGL, and this page reproduces the pamphlet itself. The front cover does include the HM Government logo, which is not free under the OGL, but as you've pointed out above that is very small and I think we should be able to consider that as de minimis. The issue about copyright in the photographs doesn't apply to this image which is of the front cover only.--MichaelMaggs (talk) 05:16, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Desert Inn logo.jpg

Please explain why there's no listing for this artwork at copyright.gov, it was licensed as copyright not renewed, yet carelessly deleted as a speedy copyvio with no DR. This is a copy of the file rationale and license with note regarding the search done for renewal at copyright.gov.

Description

Image of Desert Inn logo taken from a mending kit given out by the hotel.

Date 1950's according to other hotel items with the logo on them during that time.-see below
Source eBay

cover cover inside

inside
Author Wilbur Clark's Desert Inn/United Hotels Corporation
Permission
(Reusing this file)

Copyright not renewed

  • Though it is believed that the logo was not copyrighted and it is displayed on items from the hotel during this time period which carry no copyright notice, a renewal search was done at copyright.gov. The only renewal listings for a title "Desert Inn" were in music for a 1958 work and in film for a 1960 film. There were no listings pertaining to the Las Vegas hotel or to any artwork belonging to the hotel. United Hotel Corporation and Wilbur Clark were also searched at copyright.gov; there were no listings for either.

Other items from the 1950s with the logo:

1957 Desert Inn Menu cover logo at top right with date of March 23, 1957 back of menu with logo. Back of menu asks for a three cent stamp as postage.

Paper napkin dated October 15, 1958 Logo is on the napkin which was signed by Betty Grable, who was appearing at the hotel at the time.

Wilbur Clark sold his shares of the hotel in 1964 and died a year later. In November 1966, tycoon Howard Hughes was a guest at the Desert Inn, occupying the two top floors. In December of that year, Hughes was asked to leave to make room for New Year guests. Hughes responded to the request by entering into negotiations to purchase the Desert Inn. By 1967, he was the hotel's owner.

This 1973 ad for the Desert Inn in 1973, illustrates the changes. Wilbur Clark's name is gone from the Desert Inn name and the logo has undergone some changes.Dr. Blofeld (talk) 15:34, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

It is preferable for them to change it to CC-0 ... the Flickr "public domain" tag is actually meant for when someone else's photograph is public domain... it's a point of argument whether to accept the "public domain" tags here, while CC-0 is unambiguous and a much better statement legally (see https://creativecommons.org/about/cc0/ ). CC-BY is also accepted here if they want their attribution to remain.

Pictogram voting info.svg Info The file was deleted because the Colorado lottery website states that everything on it is "all rights reserved". If your organisation is indeed happy to release the logo under a suitable free licence we would be happy to host it. Because we have to be very careful in a case like this to ensure that the copyright licence is issued by an authorised person, we would need to get you to follow the procedure set out on the OTRS page and send us formal confirmation by email. We will then store that in our permissions database, in case anybody queries the licence at a later date. You would need to have the email sent from an official email account within the coloradolottery.com domain (we can't accept permissions sent from gmail or similar unconnected accounts). The person signing the email should have the authority to grant copyright licences on the company's behalf, and should for example be a director or the head of the company's legal department.

File:Stephliana_webcomic.jpg

This image was deleted from my userpage with the reason "Copyright violation: not 'own work'". However, the image in question is of one of my conference posters, featuring my own artwork - the full version is on my website, here: https://grimmart.net/publications-presentations/.

Stephliana (talk) 21:43, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Stephliana Hi,
As for all content previously published elsewere, a formal written permission is needed. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:14, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Yann, thank you for the information! This work wasn't published elsewhere -- it's a conference poster, but wasn't printed or reproduced in a separate publication, and the copyright was never transferred for purposes of display or reproduction; also, I'm an independent researcher, so there's no institutional ownership of the work. Do I just need to make the image available under a CC-BY license to meet the Commons standards? And will I be able to re-upload the image in question?

Best, Stephliana (talk) 14:55, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, is everything on the poster -- all of the text and all of the images, both drawings and photographs -- your own personal work? It looks to me if you have summarized and clipped material from a variety of sources. If there is anything on the poster, text or image, that you did not yourself write, draw, or photograph, then you will need a free license from the actual creators. Second, please tell us how this fragmented image of a poster serves our educational purpose? A legible copy of the whole poster might do so, but I don't think this does. Third, unless no one but you has seen the poster, it was "published" in copyright terms. With minor exceptions which do not apply here, all created works have a copyright until it expires. That's why we require a free license from the actual copyright holder via OTRS for works published elsewhere without a free license. Finally, no, you may not upload the image again -- that would be a serious violation of our rules. Commons never actually "deletes" anything -- your image has simply been removed from public view. If you can satisfactorily answer the questions above and a free license comes via OTRS, the image will be restored to view. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:49, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Jim,

I can't see the image anymore so I don't remember if the small screenshots of five website pages are included, but aside from those, all of the images on the poster were drawn by me. This is material from an academic poster, and the text and notes are not summaries or clips from external sources -- they're summaries of ongoing original research, representing data collected and written by me. It's a "fragmented" image and not the full poster because I cropped to a drawing of myself to use as a profile picture on my userpage (and there only). If the issue is with the website screenshots, then please delete the image and I can contribute a new one with those images removed.

I understand the definition of "publication" with regards to copyright -- I wanted to clarify that this has not been published in a medium that required me to transfer ownership of copyright or to grant a competing license. I asked about re-uploading because it was unclear if I'd need to resubmit the image (since it appeared to be removed) and grant a proper CC license in the image information. Stephliana (talk) 17:54, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support While Stephliana is a relatively new user, with 127 total edits in WP:EN and Commons, the use of this on a WP:EN user page seems reasonable to me. While there may be some de minimis copyrighted material present, according to the the explanation above, on the whole it seems to be "own work" and properly licensed. .     Jim . . . .

File:Lutje per Gjyqtarët.jpg

This was a picture I took during a visit to the Great Hall of the Supreme Court of Albania, and the image taken was that of a mural with the words and a portrait of mother Tereza. Theoden sA (talk) 17:03, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

To begin with, who is the painter of the mural? Thuresson (talk) 17:20, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose In most countries, all paintings, sculpture, architecture, text, and other creative works have copyrights which last for 70 years after the death of the creator. An image of a work that is still under copyright is a derivative work, and infringes on the copyright so that we cannot usually keep the image on Commons. In some countries, there is a special exception to the copyright law which allows such images under certain circumstances. We call that exception freedom of panorama (FOP). Unfortunately there is no applicable FOP exception in Albania.
Albanian copyright lasts 70 years after the death of the artist, so this painting of Mother Teresa must still be under copyright. The Google translation of the caption at https://snl.no/Religion_i_Albania is not completely clear, but I think the text shown here is a quote from Pope Francis, who is, of course, still alive. We cannot keep it on Commons without a free license from both the artist and the writer of the text (the Pope?). .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:55, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Being the person who took the picture, I wanted to clarify that the text represents the words of Mother Tereza in a prayer, where she seeks the help of god to guide judges in delivering justice ("Lutje për Gjyqtarët" literally means "prayer for judges"). Also, I asked at the court, and from what I could gather there is no signed artist of the mural afresco, because it was commissioned by the Supreme Court and apparently this public institution retains authorship rights. I believe that the public ownership of authorship rights and the fact that it has been displayed in a public place (like the courtroom) without any evident restrictions on the taking of images of the mural means that the Supreme Court has relinquished its copyrights to this work of art. Theoden sA (talk) 15:38, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
There are two problems with that. First, Mother Teresa died in 1997, so her words will be under copyright in the USA until at least 2067 and possibly longer in the country where they were first published. The Supreme Court of Albania does not have any ability to grant a license to her copyright.
Second, there is nothing in Albanian law which supports your reasoning. While
"the official texts of a legal, administrative, legislative, political nature and their respective official translations; the official symbols of the state, symbols of other public organizations and public authorities, such as: Coat of arms, seals, flags, emblems, medallions, medals;" (see Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Albania)
have no copyright in Albania, a painting of a notable Albanian person is not any of those. The fact that it was commissioned by the Supreme Court does not mean that the Supreme Court owns the copyright. Copyright always remains with the artist unless it is explictly transferred in a written agreement. That is the reason that we cannot host any of the official White House portraits of the most recent presidents. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:19, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Permission confirmed by OTRS Ticket 2016030210025158. --Rrburke (talk) 23:38, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

I have some doubt about the permission, at least for the album covers. Moreover, these files are most probably out of scope (personal images of poor quality and very tiny album covers). Regards, Yann (talk) 11:17, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
@Yann: I'm not an admin so unfortunately I can't view the files and don't know what they depict. Do you want to reply to the OTRS ticket or should I just tell the user they were declined? --Rrburke (talk) 12:28, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree. The first two are so small that they are useless. The Franz Littmann image is OK, but who is Franz Littmann? WP doesn't know him. The latter two look to be album covers, and the OTRS is from an individual, not a record company. Further, the last one labels a woman as "Homeless" when that may or may not be true. Policy explicitly forbids that. So I would not restore the first, second, and last under any circumstances. File:FranzLittmann2013.jpg could be restored if he meets our requirements of notability and File:Album "tripdown" by beg56.jpg if the OTRS sender tells us both how it is that he has the right to license an album cover and proves that the album's band is notable. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:36, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm asking the uploader about the album covers, but I thought that the copyright for cover art remained with the artist unless it had been transferred to the record company; I will try to confirm that he is the artist. But I can't find any information at AllMusic or elsewhere about any band called Beg56 or any album called Tripdown anyway (there are lots of albums called "Homeless" but none I can connect with this band), so the point may be mooted by the lack of notability. As for Franz Littmann, I will ask him to provide evidence of notability. Rrburke (talk) 14:19, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Telegram Sticker.PNG

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Greetings. Before the image is eliminated I changed the original sticker to Mozilla Firefox OS icon set. Now describes another figure and has nothing to do with Steve Jobs. I would like to recover only the already updated image. Diego Sanguinetti (talk) 23:09, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I see the first image -- a page of stickers with another page under it; now we have a blank page, save for three words, with the same page under it. I see nothing here that has any educational value. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:16, 2 March 2016 (UTC) -- see below
I do not mean that image (the package stickers). What I mean is that exhibited like that, and added to the Spanish Wikipedia. That image, now changed, is to demonstrate the use in a chat. PD: I changed the image link, apology for this confusion.--Diego Sanguinetti (talk) 15:45, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, on the new image I see a lot of smiley's which probably don't have a copyright, but also two images at the top which probably do. Second, and more important, this is a fairly complex image, but is only 183x275px, so it is really too small to be useful. Finally, what's the point -- a bunch of smileys under a skyline and a silhouette -- why is this useful for any educational purpose? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:32, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
First, the icon is in the public domain, the background can be eliminated or crop the image. The second is a sticker feature. For the third, the image is a example from the Telegram Blog. What if I design again and just focus on that feature?--Diego Sanguinetti (talk) 17:24, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
You cannot just state that the icon is PD, you must prove it. More to the point however, is that the Telegram Blog, like all created works, is copyrighted, and you cannot copy material from it to Commons without a free license. And, as I noted above, the image is so small that it useless. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:54, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
The link is a reference, not necessarily an identical copy of the image. Anything else, the image in question also serves Wikibooks tutorial so it have another use. Cite from spanish Wikibooks tutorial: "Desde el teclado, seleccionando a un emoticono. Los stickers deben estar acordes a sus respectivos estados emocionales". Next, if I make another capture without the icon and the background, would it be okay? In this case, I could change the icon to File: Telegram logo.svg, a PD icon and recent logo.--Diego Sanguinetti (talk) 16:57, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

No. If your new version is close enough to the original to be useful for educational purposes on WMF, then it must infringe on the source copyright. If it is so far from what is used on the Telegram Blog that it does not infringe, then it would be wrong to describe it as in any way related to the Blog -- it would be your own personal art, which we do not keep on Commons. Finally, you cannot cite its being in use if you are the one who added it -- if that were not the rule, anyone could force us to keep any image. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:47, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion. I just uploaded a different and free-copyright version for use on Wikipedia and Wikibooks (File:Sticker preview from Telegram's Sticker bot.png).--Diego Sanguinetti (talk) 19:39, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
See Commons:Deletion requests/File:Sticker preview from Telegram's Sticker bot.png. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:46, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
So I think the argument would also with Telegram main screenshot. The main screenshot is File:Telegram Android screenshot.svg (now without copyright). The other image that I upgraded, employing fictional characters, it would be wrong too. However, the application is official. Making a comparative, the stickers are invented (or like "fandom"), the bot (used to create the stickers) and the app are real. Not to confuse I'm asking in Spanish Café#¿Una captura de Telegram fuera de tópico? to seek a consensus.--Diego Sanguinetti (talk) 17:26, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Second, you are in serious violation of the WMF rules on conflict of interest.

Reason: I got in contact with the flickr user a while back and they been gave permission and made the file public domain so I don't understand why they keep deleting the file without even checking when permission was given and posted to public domain Joeyfats67 (talk) 02:34, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The first problem is that it is tagged on Flickr as having "no known restrictions", which is not an irrevocable license like we require. Please have them use CC-0. The second, and much bigger problem is that the Flickr user does not seem to be the copyright holder: they seem to be the subject, and while subjects often buy promotional rights to photographs of themselves, they usually do not own the copyright.

Please read the Bob's Game article on WP:EN, which is largely written by the subject, and see if you agree with me. He's proven good at getting publicity, but the game has apparently had no commercial success at all. I doubt that we need thirty images from a game that very few people have played. I think we're just being used for the next round of publicity..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:40, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Of course. But as long as ES-wiki and EN-wiki have an article about this game the material is in scope. (A flaw in our scope policy if you ask me) And while 9 minutes is quick, admins who have OTRS-access do the undeletions themself which is even quicker. As soon as the articles are gone, the files should be deleted again of course but the ES-wiki article has been around since 2010 and the en-wiki article since 2009.

Reason: I will add source for each photo to make it right, thanks Ibrahim.ID 12:02, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ibrahim.ID: the problem is that at least one of the images in the collage, File:Juliano mer khamis.jpg, was likely a copyright violation.

Two Swiss Files

I closed Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Morningbastet as Deleted because these two 1950-60s images were obviously not the own work of the uploader. That has been confirmed in a long discussion on my talk page. Storkk has pointed out there that the Swiss ToO for photographs is high, so these may never have had a Swiss copyright.

After reading Copyright law of Switzerland, and studying its examples, I think that while these are certainly not formal studio portraits, the photographer has caught characteristic expressions and they are well composed, so I think they may have a Swiss copyright. However, I am certainly not expert on the subject, so I bring them here for a wider opinion. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:28, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

  • I'm unsure what the US copyright status of pre-1996 simple Swiss photos would be if they were never published in the US. Storkk (talk) 10:33, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
I think I remember Carl saying that a US judge would apply the other country's rules on whether or not the work was copyrightable -- I don't think a work can have a US copyright if it is not copyrightable in its home country. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 01:09, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Pretty sure the U.S. would apply U.S. rules of copyrightability. They would apply foreign rules to determine a copyright owner though. This was from the en:Itar-Tass Russian News Agency v. Russian Kurier, Inc. case (more specifically, it said it would use U.S. rules on whether infringement occurred, so I'm assuming it would use U.S. rules of copyrightability as well). But publication in Switzerland would probably still count as publication in the U.S. in that it required a copyright notice. Unsure what the URAA would do there... they would not restore works in the public domain in its source country through expiration of term of protection on the restoration date, which would seem to say that works in the public domain for other reasons could be restored, but if something is below the Berne threshold of a work then the U.S. probably wasn't required to restore it either. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:49, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for this, Carl. Just to clarify: the US copyright status of a simple photo published only in Switzerland before 1977 would likely rest on whether it was accompanied by a copyright notice (despite it not being copyrightable where it was published)? Disregarding URAA, that is. If I am reading you correctly, I'd Symbol support vote.svg Support; absent relevant case law I don't think we should interpret URAA so generously. Storkk (talk) 07:29, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
Yep, like anything else, if it was published before 1989 without a copyright notice, it lost its U.S. copyright (other than maybe the 9th circuit of course due to the Twin Books ruling). The URAA would be the only thing which could have restored it. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:01, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: I had uploaded the image in good faith from the original published on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/marcoberri/623254430/in/faves-47912543@N00/ and I don't know why it was missing source and license information, probably an error on my part since I have rarely uploaded images on Commons. I hope it can be restored and/or uploaded again. Thank you for your work, ciao --Steko Steko (talk) 09:33, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

@Steko: There was no error in your part, it is an error of the Flickr user. The image was deleted because it is "licensed" under the Public Domain Mark 1.0. The Public Domain Mark 1.0 is not and will never be a license nor a legal tool, so the image on Flickr is technically still considered as "All rights reserved", which is unacceptable on Commons. Please contact the Flickr user to license their image under CC0, and addtionally explain to them that to release their images in the public domain, they should use CC0, not Public Domain Mark. Thanks, Poké95 13:44, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Coca-Cola packaging-related files improperly deleted

The following files:

Was tagged for deletion by FastliyClone, and then, deleted by Fastily (the same person!) without a valid rationale.

And the following files:

Has been part of this DR, but deleted by EugeneZelenko regardless that and without providing a valid reason (copyvio).

Since the Coca-Cola logo is already in the PD, please restore the files according to the previous concensus about the Coca-Cola logo and packaging, if apply. --Amitie 10g (talk) 01:41, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Restoring two images nominated for deletion by 117.240.209.48

I am requesting to restore the two images above, because Green Giant and P199 didn't asked the nominator to confirm their identity through OTRS. The anonymous user that nominated these two images uses the IP 117.240.209.48, which is a proxy server located in Pokhara, Nepal. But the Republic Day Event 2013 image was taken in Pune, which is far from Nepal. This never has been looked nor considered at all. They even nominated a file which was taken in Namaste, New Delhi, which is of course, far from Nepal. It was deleted on Flickr, but that is not the reason to delete it on Commons too. For a more detailed explanation, see https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Odder&curid=45769812&diff=194429435&oldid=193383560. Thanks, Poké95 04:25, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Oppose - The IP 117.240.209.48 is actually an Indian IP registered to the Indian public sector BSNL operator and is a range used throughout India for mobile telecom edits, see.
- "Namaste" is the traditional Indian greeting by joining 2 palms together vertically, and is not a place in New Delhi.
- How did you (actually/indirectly WMF globally banned user "Scott") conclude the India Against Corruption group are behind these deletion requests ?
-In the case of the 2nd. image the uploader admitted the photographer's error (probably also the reason why it was also deleted on Flickr by the photographer).
- FYI, I had already reported the very same Wikipedia Sucks Wordpress blog to WMF so that a formal DMCA complaint can be filed to Wordpress take down the site for copy violations and libels. Unfitlouie (talk) 07:49, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
@Unfitlouie: But why http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/117.240.209.48 says it is a proxy server located in Pokhara, Nepal? In my opinion, I would trust the results of whatismyipaddress.com, because they can detect proxy servers, unlike whois.domaintools.com. There is even reports against that IP. Poké95 09:32, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
Pokéfan95 I don't think UnfitLouoie is saying that they don't trust whatismyipaddress.com but that the IP is owned by an Indian telecomms provider registered in New Delhi. In this increasingly globalized era, it is not surprising that a server might be located in another country. The fact that there are complaints against an IP is not unusual; in fact I'd be surprised if there wasn't some complaint about bad behaviour against most IP's. My account used to have an IP-exemption on English Wikipedia because some of the IP addresses that my ISP provided were also used for vandalism by persons unknown and I was caught in a range-block. Look at this in a wider context than just Commons - in roughly the same time-frame the same IP made 11 edits on wikis other than Commons. Should we assume that those edits were made by the same person? Alternatively, we can assume that it could have been several different people. Green Giant (talk) 10:45, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
Pokéfan95 The whatismyipaddress.com website itself admits their possibly 50% error rate in geo-location. The authentic ICANN information I linked shows that this IP is actually used for mobile telecom subscribers of BSNL (India's 3rd largest mobile telephone operator) exclusively within India. The term "proxy server" is not the same as "open proxy". Most such mobile telco IPs are default configured as proxy servers because they are used under "roaming" or clients set up mobile hotspots from their handsets. I checked, this IP is on India's National Internet Backbone (or NIB) server is exclusively within India and not allocated for Nepal. Seeing the wide date separation and other edits to WMF sites from this IP, I agree with previous commenter that it is not possible to assume that same person made both deletion requests, or they are necessarily connected. Unfitlouie (talk) 03:28, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
Comment I have undeleted the Oberoi photo and re-opened the DR because I made the mistake of not asking the IP to go through OTRS. Although Scott makes an assumption in his comment on Odder's talk page, I closed the DR on the basis that the photo was no longer in Flickr and the uploader agreed with deletion. I did have a look through the Flickr user photostream to see if it existed under another name. Indeed there other photos apparently taken in a hotel, but not the one in question. So I assumed that it is quite possible that the photographer has removed the photo in response to a request from the person in the photo, unlike Scott's example of people removing photos from Flickr because they don't want them there anymore. I do find Scott's argument about the parent and child possibility a little odd - "How likely is it, that a 20-something hotel employee in New Delhi has a child at a Wikipedia event in Pune (around 1,500km from New Delhi), and that photos of both of them somehow appear on Commons by different photographers and at different dates?" Given that we know next-to-nothing about the hotel employee, it is a lot of assumptions being made about her. News flash: women can have children at almost any age after they hit puberty. The Oberoi photo was taken in March 2009 and the Pune photo in January 2013, so what is so shocking about the possibility that a "20-something woman" has a kid who is still a kid four years after the first photo. Another news flash: quite a lot of Indians (and I daresay other nationalities) migrate huge distances to work whilst leaving their families in their home town - it has been going on for decades. Hundreds of thousands of Indians work abroad e.g. in the Gulf countries. So, yes it is quite possible that she might work 1,500 km away from her family. Finally, just as Scott has been able to edit by going through a server in Japan (despite him normally living in Australia), I don't find it odd that an IP in Nepal was used twice in a month by someone in India (which is next door to Nepal). Trolling by external websites aside, I don't think it is implausible that a "20-something woman", photographed in 2009, in New Delhi, has a child in an event in Pune, four years and 1,500 km later. To be fair, we don't know that one of the kids in Pune necessarily is the child of the woman in Delhi. Too many variables and too many assumptions being made.

Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller docked on the Aarhus harbour (2013).jpg

Hi,

I am the owner of this picture, and I was taken personally by me in the Aarhus Harbour. I took several pictures and with photoshop I made the panoramic. I don't understand why this picture was removed and I would like request to undelete this contribution.

I can prove that this picture is mine because, I am using it in my personal blog (www.livespanske.com) from long time and also because I have HD resolution version of the picture.

File:Prince Beatrice with Dave Clark.jpg

File:Prince Beatrice with Dave Clark.jpg [sic] was deleted today because the person who uploaded it on FlickR changed the license. At the time the file was uploaded on the Commons, it was marked as cc-by-2.0, which was confirmed by the FlickreviewR bot. It was claimed here that the bot was mistaken because the link pointed to the lightbox, but that is obviously nonsense. Four other files from the same photographer and same photostream, all uploaded by me at the same time as File:Prince Beatrice with Dave Clark.jpg, were confirmed as free without any supposed lightbox issues. Those four files are

Evidently, the photographer changed the license of all five photographs (and the rest of the stream) after I uploaded them here. I have gone through my uploads and found more cases of photographers changing licenses of images whose orignal copyright status has already been confirmed by either the bot or human reviewers. For example, File:Vincent and Josephine.jpg, now marked as non-free on Flickr, was confirmed to be free when uploaded to the Commons by the administrator Natuur12. The author of that photograph also uploaded File:Crown Prince Frederik running.jpg to FlickR under a suitable license, which was confirmed by a bot, but then changed it later. File:Birgitte, Duchess of Gloucester.jpg, confirmed as free when uploaded to the Commons by Leoboudv, has also seen a license change.

If that warrants deletion of these files, what is the point of reviewing their copyright status once they are moved from FlickR to the Commons? I have extensively searched FlickR for free images and videos using its copyrght status filters, uploading over a 100 images and videos, with subjects ranging from lampreys to athletes. If the decision of the author to change the license on a whim years after uploading the file is all it takes for my effort to be nullified, why bother? Surtsicna (talk) 20:33, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

I'm in favour of undeleting the image if this deletion request is resumed. Thuresson (talk) 03:44, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

:Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a hard one. On the one hand, the reason we do Flickreview is to deal with exactly this sort of problem and therefore, as Surtsicna asks, why bother if we aren't going to stand by the review? On the other hand, the point of the review is to have the ability to go into court and testify that an independent review absolutely without question established that the license was CC-BY on the date of the review. As I understand it, because Surtsicna did not correctly cite the source, we cannot do that with this image. So, while I think that the circumstances are probably as Surtsicna describes them, they are not beyond our standard of proof of "significant doubt". Therefore, COM:PRP required deletion. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:40, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

So, including "/lightbox" in the source link was an incorrect way to cite the source? Why is that not mentioned here or here? And should all my FlickR uploads with "/lightbox" in the link be reassessed now (before the FlickR uploader changes the license)? There appear to be three: File:Julia Grace Wales in 1916.jpg, File:Julia Grace Wales upon graduation.jpg and File:Gimnazija Mostar.jpg. Surtsicna (talk) 11:21, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenniferboyer/6093844178/, so it's OK (and has the same license now).
  • File:Julia Grace Wales in 1916.jpg is troublesome. It was taken in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, by the Delonge Studio, so the short Canadian term cannot apply. She had achieved considerable stature by the time this was taken, so I'm prepared to assume that the image was published before 1923, but I respect the opinion that it may have simply sat in a family album until recently, in which case its copyright would not expire for many years from now. I see no basis on which the Flickr uploader can have any copyright -- in order for that to be accurate, Biblio would have to have gotten a license from Delonge and that's unlikely. The Delonge Studio operated until 1987.

Having discovered that the Flikrreview was done correctly on the one image, I checked the subject image, and it, too, was reviewed at
