File:Swing macht plattfuesse.jpg

The picture is just that of a newspaper's headline and has no threshold of originality. It only consists of text in a simple typeface, so it is not an object of copyright in respect to US or to German law.--User:Engelbaet 05:50, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

RalphFlanders1910.jpg

The subject file was deleted while I was away on an extended wilderness trip. The issue was the copyright provenance, which didn't fit the standard templates. I received a hard copy of the photograph to upload from a living descendant of the person depicted. The photograph was used at the masthead of a byline in Machine magazine ca. 1910, of which the subject, Ralph E. Flanders, was an editor. Therefore, it was first published before 1923. Additionally, the anonymous staff photographer from the time may be presumed to be dead for 70 years. HopsonRoad (talk) 13:11, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Physical property rights (hard copy) are distinct from intellectual property rights. Similarly, being a mere descendant is distinct from being the actual inheritor of IP rights. This is moot if the image is PD, as is the date of author death if the image was lawfully published (the US generally only considers pma for unpublished works). COM:L requires sourcing “information sufficient for others to verify the license status,” so if you can provide more than “Machine magazine” (e.g. specific date, volume number, etc.) it can be restored, otherwise not.

  • The image is my original work, created from a photograph that I took, and I have released it under the appropriated licensing for wiki commons.
I had originally uploaded the image not to commons, but just permitting usage on a single Wikipedia page, which is likely why this was flagged as possible copyright.

Hello guys.

Also I have a RAW camera file for it. Let's ask that https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:1989 who requested deletion about his rights. I wonder what he will say. Actually there's a lot of stuff he already deleted.

Hi there,

I just want to know why you would like to delete the file? From my point of view this is one of the best picture from this building!
— Preceding unsigned comment added by Eriks Mi (talk • contribs) 10:15, 02 September 2016 (UTC)

Nothing to undelete at the moment, and this is not a general discussion board. @Eriks Mi: You can read the reason in the pink message box on the file page, and also in the deletion discussion. The reason is that architecture in Latvia is copyrighted for the lifetime of the architect plus 70 years, and even photographs taken of such buildings would require permission from the architect or his heirs. Vladimir Shnitnikov who designed this particular building died in 1996, so his works in Latvia are still copyrighted until 2066. Other countries, however, may have a legal tool called "freedom of panorama" that allows for the taking of photographs of buildings and artwork displayed in public, but Latvia doesn't.

File:1911 Planul Urbanistic General al Capitalei.PNG and File:Planul Urbanistic al orașului București din 1911.PNG

The map is from year 1911 and the author is represented by the Romanian Army's Geographical Service.

The source from which the images were extracted: Sfințescu, Cincinat I.; Studiu asupra Planului General de Sistematizare al Capitalei; Tipografia Jockey-Club; București; România, 1919

I believe that the license may be revised per {{PD-RO-exempt}}. The image's information must be uptaded too, and if the photo will be recovered I will make it.--Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 23:12, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

What line in {{PD-RO-exempt}} do you believe covers maps? Эlcobbola talk 15:43, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Look in the lower left corner of the map, where it says "EDIȚIA OFICIALĂ" (means "official edition"). I think in this case (but I am not sure) that the map is assimilated with an published official document. --Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 19:41, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The list of documents excluded from copyright protection in {{PD-RO-exempt}} does not include maps. The template does not say "official documents" but instead "official texts" which implies limitation to prose. Эlcobbola talk 19:59, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Otherwise, since the author is a "legal entity" as the Romanian Army's Geographical Service, the license could be revised per {{PD-Romania}} - "It is another kind of work, the author is a legal entity („persoană juridică” - not a person) and 50 years have passed since the date of its publication" (and the publication had occurred in 1902). --Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 20:11, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

The legal entity approach with {{PD-Romania}} may have some merit; however, I am unable to find support in Romanian Copyright Law. Chapter V covers "Duration of Copyright Protection" and says nothing about 50 years for legal entities. Also, searching the document for "50" (i.e., to find references to 50 years after publication) yields no support either. Could it be this is the repealed article 29 in Chapter V? Otherwise, could you please find the chapter, article and section for the copyright duration of works by legal entities? I may just be missing it, but, if not, the template appears incorrect. Эlcobbola talk 14:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
It looks like that part is from Article 7 of the Decree No. 321 of 1956. That was probably eliminated in 1996 with the new law, but since the new law appears to not be retroactive, corporate works from before 1946 may be fine. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:30, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, look at Decree 321/1956, Art. 7, last sentence (explanation here on page 125, the fourth paragraph). --Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 00:37, 20 August 2016 (UTC) P.S. The template must be completed: "....and 50 years have passed since the date of its publication (only if it was before March 14, 1946)"

Does {{EdictGov-India}} extend to maps on a website? From the text in the template I'd think that only official edicts published in certain gazettes and the like are exempt from copyright in India. Any other governmental work is still copyrighted and non-free. De728631 (talk) 21:57, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment There are multiple versions here. One map was uploaded in 2006 by Shizhao. In 2008, Wikigringo uploaded an entirely different map over the 2006 version, but reverted himself 6 minutes later. The 2006 "original" was then there until it was deleted 5 September 2015. For which version are you requesting restoration? Also, what is the "government of india website" you used? Эlcobbola talk 19:38, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I think Wikigringo's version was then uploaded to File:Nagalandmap.png, which is still there. Out of curiosity though, what was the basis of deleting a file for "no source" after it was uploaded for nine years? Was it a valid tag to add? Shizhao is a longtime admin here, if I'm not mistaken. Carl Lindberg (talk) 11:35, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Wikigringo said above "I can confirm that I made the map," which suggests we are talking about his short-lived version, not the Shizhao version. However, regarding the Shizhao version, @Ellin Beltz: tagged it as no source, which seems technically appropriate as there was no reference to the underlying map's source. (The file is not old enough to fall under COM:GRANDFATHER.) That said, I'm inclined to Symbol support vote.svg Support the Shizhao version, as the underlying map appears to be File:India-locator-map-blank.svg. Эlcobbola talk 14:42, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
File:Nagalandmap.png has source and is in use, the original layer of File:Nagaland map.png has no source and is not old enough to grandfather. I have no objections to restoring the file as long as a source can be agreed upon. Also, we have several other maps of the area, see Category:Maps of Nagaland. Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:54, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I think what happened here is that Wikigringo got the deletion notice for File:Nagaland map.png, saw it had been deleted, and mistakenly believed the notice referred to File:Nagalandmap.png. That would explain the bizarre rationale ("I can confirm that I made the map") about a file made by Shizhao. @Shizhao: could you confirm the source of the file? Is it File:India-locator-map-blank.svg or something else? Эlcobbola talk 19:46, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
Correct; Wikigringo's version is still around, so the initial undeletion reason above was just a misunderstanding. I'm just wondering about Shizhao's version. If that said "own work", then it does not need a source -- that is the sourcing claim. If we are wondering about the source of data, that is an inappropriate use of a speedy delete tag, which is for copyright reasons only. I can't see the original though, so it may be obvious the underlying map was copied from somewhere else. That user is a long-time admin on Commons and I think meta, and usually knows what he's doing. Granted, it was uploaded a long time ago, and mistakes were easier to make then. Was the page text changed at all during the short-lived Wikigringo version? Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:54, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

 Not done: stale and confused request. No further input from requestor and no response from Shizhao who is likely busy with the many other things he does cross-wiki. --INeverCry 22:04, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_Peoples170

The files were all together deleted from とある白い猫 because Ellin Beltz considered them as being advertising (see discussion here) which may be true for one or two pictures but clearly not for all 12 pictures. I kindly request an individual discussion and selection of every single picture and not a general liquidation. Please consider as well all those different pictures from airlines around the world that we have, so I do not understand why those from should be more or less advertising.--MBurch (talk) 15:35, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Actually, that's not accurate, the entire deletion nomination read "No confidence that user created these advertising images for the airline, nor the images of the lounges and airplanes. Wildly varying sizes, colors, styles, overprinting on at least one image, etc. Also duplicate images." The key words are "user created" which are obviously not the case. To see the lack of uniformity in the set requires seeing the set together so that the differences between the images can be seen. The problem here is not the "advertising" which so bothers you but that the uploader did not create the advertising images they culled from somewhere else and uploaded as their own images. I oppose undeletion of these images. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:15, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
As far as I understand, the deletion was done due to a suspected (but not proven) copyright violation. If this is true, was the creator User:Peoples170 informed about those doubts? The photos might have lacked uniformity, but most of them were fair enough for being used as illustrations. I also request undeletion of the images and discussing the deletion of each of them individually.--Mc-404 (talk) 16:47, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
So you doubt that the pictures are from the uploader? Well then let me tell you that the account is verified in German wikipedia: de:Benutzer:Peoples170.--MBurch (talk) 17:08, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Merely working for Peoples ≠ an agent of the airline authorized to license IP on its behalf. The latter is what I said, and what we require evidence of. Release of IP is generally the realm of corporate officers, not general employees. Эlcobbola talk 17:55, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Maybe it would help if you ask first or explain him the whole procedure from Commons, rather then just delete it all together in one single shot. I left a message on his German Wikipedia page about this discussion here and maybe we can just wait now until he reacts.--MBurch (talk) 18:15, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
I don't see any reason for this deletion. If there is any question about just one or all pictures.. don't delet it, ask the uploader, give him some time. So I think this pictures should be restored.FFA P-16 (talk) 18:33, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
OK, as I now have seen, the original uploader was indeed asked for submitting licensing information, but did not react within 7 days. Most probably because he's not familiar with Wikipedia, but that's another story. No more objections in this case from my side. I hope the pictures will re-appear together with the legal stuff required.--Mc-404 (talk) 18:35, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

I, as the artist representative, can certify there's no copyright on that image. Please undelete it. Thanks. Binouche22 (talk) 17:15, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

There is always a copyright, unless explicitly disclaimed. The original owner would be the photographer, though if there is a written contract that would override. In general though, for previously-existing images on the Internet we need copyright owners to follow the COM:OTRS process, as user accounts are basically anonymous and we need better confirmation on the license (and that they really are the copyright owner, and they understand the full rights they are giving up). If followed through, that process will get the image undeleted. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:50, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

File:India-Cycle-Sporting-4-internationalevent-warsaw-berlin-prague-race.jpg

Hello,

I am researching the history of the Cycling Federation of India. I was in the middle of examining several photographs uploaded by a user showing the Indian cycling team from the Olympics and other competitions of the 1940s and 1950s. These, especially the file in the subject, have now unfortunately disappeared. I read the History and saw that copyright was uncertain but the user had left a message saying these are his/her photographs. The discussion was then closed.

These photographs were really useful to me in my research as I am able to identify some of the people in them.

I should like to know the reasons for their deletion as it seems very plausible that the person uploading them was the creator or the inheritor of these photographs as I have never in my research come across them before. If this is not the case then I should like to get in touch with the user who uploaded them to find out the origin of these photographs.

Please could you explain the deletion?

I am grateful for any information and reasoning you can provide, or to be put in touch with the user who uploaded them in the first place.

Best wishes,

Dr. Tehmina Goskar

To whom it may concern,

The reason to demand the undeletion of the file [Kuva- Hannu Lindroos (2013).jpg] in the article concerning Villa Karo (https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa_Karo)

Hannu Lindroos has taken the photo, but has given all the rights for Villa Karo, Finnish-African cultural center and Artist Residency to use in our communication and marketing concerning Villa Karo. The content of the photo is the main building of Villa Karo. The name of the photograph and the year is marked clearly. Should I rather leave them out?

Waiting for your response!

Please restore the photo of Moshe Ha-Elion / Moshe Ha-Elion article

Hello, I don't understand why the photo of Moshe Ha-Elion in his house in Israel from the Wikipedia article "Moshe Ha-Elion" was deleted. That photo was taken by my husband (Eyal Streett) and I personally asked Moshe Ha-Elion if it was OK to use it and he agreed. I don't remember if I put as a owner of the photo my name (Antonia Tejeda Barros) or my husband's (Eyal Streett), because I was new in writing an article correctly and I didn't know how to do it (I did write an article last year but didn't do it correctly and the article was deleted). Moshe Ha-Elion is an Holocaust survivor who is today 91 years old. He was 21 months in Auschwitz. He is a writer, a voice of the Shoah and a friend of ours. I don't understand why it's not OK that his picture is in his article. Please consider to add the photo as soon as possible. The photo does not violate any copyright, since my husband Eyal Streett took the photo when he went to Israel, to Moshe Ha-Elion's house. Please restore the photo. Thank you very much and many greetings from Spain / Antonia Tejeda Barros Antonia Tejeda Barros (talk) 13:24, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Antonia Tejeda Barros, I'm generally supportive of restoration (File:Moshe Ha Elion in his house. Bat Yam, Israel, January 21, 2016.jpg) but we need more explicit permission. "I personally asked Moshe Ha-Elion if it was OK to use it and he agreed" is not adequate: 1) permission needs to come from the copyright holder (your husband, as photographer) and 2) "OK to use" is not acceptable. Please see COM:L for the conditions that need to be met (e.g., we need explicit confirmation of a license--that derivatives, republication, commercial use, etc. are allowed.)

Elections Posters (Switzerland)

{{FoP-Switzerland/en}} says, "works installed at or on publicly accessible places or ground may be pictured", so that it is allowed to load up elections posters, that are photographed at public places. So I wish, that somebody undelets the following pictures:

--Wettiger Nochrichte (talk) 06:42, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose You omit that it also says "The works must be permanently installed," which these are not. COM:FOP, which contains additional information about the Swiss FoP situation says further, "Posters in public are not considered 'permanently situated' by the literature" (source footnote omitted). Эlcobbola talk 14:50, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
More precise link. Actually, as noted there (or in this article in German-language Wikipedia), there is a minority in Swiss law literature (namely Barrelet/Egloff) who argue that "permanently situated" may also apply to works installed as part of a temporary exhibition (i.e. deliberately placed in public space for a particular length of time), but the majority seems to disagree, and as Elcobbola says, posters usually are not seen as falling unter FoP-Switzerland. Gestumblindi (talk) 18:29, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
So far it has never be a problem. In the canton of Aargau the posters are 8 weeks installed at public places. In the Fop its said "A work is not “permanently situated” within the meaning of the law if it is only visible by accident (e.g. whilst being transported). poster, you can see eight weeks is not "only visible by accident".--Badener (talk) 18:39, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
The template is a mere summary, and that text is misleading/incorrect. I gave you a cite from COM:FOP explicitly addressing posters. Whether it's been a problem before or not is w:WP:OSE. Эlcobbola talk 18:50, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

File:Gutscheinpony Superhelden-und-Boesewichte Infografik.jpg

Hallo zusammen,

meine Infografik wurde aufgrund möglicher Urheberrechtsverletzung gelöscht. Sie wurde durch mich im Rahmen meiner Arbeit bei Gutscheinpony erstellt und darf unter der Creative Commons Lizenz (3.0) verwendet werden. Die Einstellungen dazu habe ich leider nicht beim editieren finden können (ich bin ganz neu hier - offensichtlich).

Ich denke, dass die Infografik einen deutlichen Mehrwert für die User und Userinnen darstellt, weil es sonst nur Infografiken gibt, die ausschließlich Marvel ODER DC thematisieren. In meiner Infografik hingegen werden beide Universen verglichen.

Ich freue mich, wenn die Löschung wieder aufgehoben werden könnte bzw. ich die Möglichkeit bekommen würde, die Grafik noch einmal mit den geltenden Lizenzbestimmungen hochzuladen.

File:Montaje de Ada Lovelace.png

The file was proposed for deletion because, apparently, there was license information missing from Alfred Edward Chalon (who died in 1860) and Jackie Aim (see here). I explained that, as was stated in the image description, the image is a derivative work from another Commons image (File:'Garden of Ada'.jpg), and the information about these authors is clearly shown in that other image page. It looks that the person who proposed the deletion didn't see the other image mentioned in the description page.

The picture was deleted without further explanation by Jcb, who didn't even reply to my explanations, which obviously didn't make me happy, specially after he simply told me that "he didn't think the image is a derivative work" when I explained him the situation (?). Well, it is; that's why I mentioned the other image and these two guys in the first place. As I also told Jcb, saying that the image isn't a derivative work of File:'C'.jpg makes the deletion even more incorrect, as these two authors wouldn't even be needed to be mentioned in the description page (they are mentioned because the image is a derivative from the other one).

Anyway: I request the image to be restored. Thank you. --Racso (talk) 04:37, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are three copyrights here. The first, is the original belonging to Chalon, which is long PD. The second is the one belonging to the Commons image File:'Garden of Ada'.jpg which is CC-BY-SA-2.0. The third belongs to the creator of the derivative work File:Montaje_de_Ada_Lovelace.png for which we do not have a satisfactory license.

More to the point, though, is that the image is personal art from a non-notable artist, so even if it were properly licensed, it would be out of scope. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:07, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It appears at http://www.adoptasafta.com/ with an explicit copyright notice. Therefore, policy requires that in order to keep it on Commons, we must have a formal license from an authorized officer of the organization.
More to the point, though, is the fact that the organization may or may not be notable, as we define it here. Google finds little that is not self-promotional and there does not appear to be a WP article. Until an independent person (one not connected with the organization) decides that it is important enough for a WP article, I see little need for its logo here.
I am the owner of the URL, and the creator of the logo. What other formal license do you need?

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This was deleted by User:Hedwig in Washington with the comment, " © 2015 Tom J Bell."
Hedwig, I don't see that either in the image itself or in the image description. Where should I look? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:46, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Was it in the metadata? I see the same in en:File:Nigel Briggs Portrait.jpg, which is by the same uploader. Unless we find the image on the net somewhere, in the same resolution, I'm not sure an EXIF copyright notice giving the uploader's real name is grounds for deletion review (especially speedy). Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:54, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
That's entirely possible -- as far as I know, Admins can't see the metadata without actually restoring the image, so I haven't seen it. Although I agree that it is likely that Tom J. Bell is User:Tomtom8k, since we have an explicit copyright notice that does not match the licensor, I think we need an OTRS permission from Tom J. Bell. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:50, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
I don't think we require OTRS simply if a real name is used in the copyright notice -- only if the image appears on the Internet in its uploaded resolution. Otherwise, like other uploads -- we would assume good faith, and assume that is the uploader's real name. I don't see the en-wiki image anywhere; not sure what this one was. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:18, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
I can't agree. If the image appeared elsewhere on the Web with an explicit copyright notice, we would require OTRS. It seems to me that the same must apply when the explicit notice came with the image, except in the case where the notice is in the same name as the username of the uploader.
And I disagree with that. If a user identifies their real name which is different than their username, all of their uploads then become suspect because we can't be who they claim they are? The reason for OTRS is if the image might have been copied off the internet; the fact a user identifies their real name does not change that one way or the other, to me. If the name is a known professional photographer, then maybe -- though if the uploaded resolutions still make it reasonably likely that the uploader is the author, I would still assume good faith and not require OTRS. Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:46, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
I can confirm that I am Tom J Bell and that I took the original photo as well as the photo mentioned above en:File:Nigel Briggs Portrait.jpg. My apologies that the metadata tag was included I didn't realise it was still attached to the image. --Tomtom8k (talk) 10:33, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

As I noted at the DR cited above, the uploader claimed that the photograph was his own work. That seems unlikely and, unless it is actually his own work, we need a free license from the photographer, or evidence that it is PD. More to the point, however, is that the work is out of scope because it is personal art from a non-notable artist.

Part of that is that "fair use" is more legally dubious for an image database, as we are providing them for *any* use, not a specific use in a specific article -- so it may not fall under fair use anyways. But also because this is a free image repository, so it's part of Commons founding aims. It's also a bit more than just policy; the Wikimedia Foundation has mandated that Commons is not allowed to host fair use images. That also goes for publicity photos, which may have more of an implied license than fair use, but still do not qualify as "free". We use "copyright violation" for files that are obviously not free, and where the copyright has not expired. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:59, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

File:Wortbild-Logo - Project Worm.png - for usage in RegiowikiAT

Please restore the above file, which was and is not in 'no encyclopedic use', as stated in the deletion request (see in the deletion request archive Commons:Deletion requests/Archive/2016/02/04?uselang=de or directly Commons:Deletion requests/File:Wortbild-Logo - Project Worm.png).

It was and will be used in the Austrian wiki RegiowikiAT, which is a project supported by the WMAT (Wikimedia Austria, Wikimedia Österreich – Gesellschaft zur Förderung Freien Wissens.) and holds many in the German Wikipedia deleted and to Austria related articles, similarly to the MARJORIE-WIKI, which holds also many in the Wikipedia deleted articles, but these are primarily related to Germany, Swiss or have no direct relation to a country.

This file is needed for the article Project Worm in the RegiowikiAT. (Note: The founder and main contributor of the RegiowikiAT, which is @Karl Gruber (short K@rl), marked this file and nearly 800 other files, which are used in the RegiowikiAT, with Template:RegiowikiAT and therefore gets the content of the category Category:Used files in Regiowiki AT to avoid such deletion requests, which states 'no encyclopedic use' of files used by RegiowikiAT.)

File:Addams Family pinball backbox.jpg

The comment left was that the work was 'Obviously not user's own creation, Addams family artwork'. While, No, I didn't design the image, I did take the photo of the pinball machine backglass. The pixelation and reflection of the family name indicates as much. Does it need to be the entire pinball machine to be acceptable?

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The issue is that the artwork on the background of the machine you photographed is copyrighted and most likely non-free.

File:Beatriz Rico Ellas Dan La Nota 07-03-2016.jpg

Dear colleagues,

My name is Ruben Ramirez, I am the husband of the person who appear on the picture, that is: Beatriz Rico. She requested me to change the horrible picture that someone put on her profile in Wikipedia, it was captured from a video on Youtube and it is the sixth time I try to upload a picture from different sources. All of them have been deleted, but the last 2 pictures have been deleted with no sense, as their copyright status are free. The pictures have been taken from a friend of her, one of them is in a public website, I remark, with NO COPYRIGHT. The other comes from flickr, so it is specifically explained that pictures from flickr are allowed without restrictions.

I apologize if I do not explain right, but we are afraid we are going to make a report of this situation, because it is unfair she has to see this picture of her that she hates. Next time we will go directly to the judge in order to solve this trouble, so I kindly ask you to change the picture or to explain step by step how to do it, because our knowledge of wiki commons is not advanced and we just want to have another picture of Beatriz Rico that does not damage her personal image. If you want us to send you a picture of her in order to upload it, let us know.

I keep waiting for your response and a solution.

Apart from that it doesn't specify which Creative Commons licence possibly applies (e.g. we don't accept non-commercial licenses). On the other hand there is the copyright disclaimer presented by Elcobbola which is pretty straightforward non-free, and the terms and conditions of that site do not mention Creative Commons either.

File:Falastin newspaper 18 June 1936 issue featuring a caricature.png

I have a book that says that all content that was published on Falstin newspaper was public domain. Does the document have to be public, or can it be shown secretly like in the ORTS correspondence? The book is in Arabic. --Makeandtoss (talk) 12:34, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I see no reason why that would be the case -- this newspaper page was published in 1936, while Palestine was under UK control, so UK copyright law applies. That calls for copyrights lasting 70 years after the death of the author (PMA). In this case, that would be the latest of the deaths of the artist and the writers of the various text shown on the page.
However, if you believe that you have proof beyond a significant doubt to the contrary, you can certainly send it to OTRS, or, you could summarize here what the book says -- the reason that it says that all Falastin content is PD. Note that Falastin was published under three different rules -- the Ottoman Empire, the UK, and Israeli. Content published under the Ottoman Empire (until 1923) is PD, but work after that is all governed by 70 years PMA. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:21, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi all,

can you please undelete these pictures for me, our company account would verified by the wikipedia team, and we are the owner and publisher of these pictures.

Alltec Site: [[8]] Ticket (2014011010008301): [[9]]

Please contact me for any questions. Thanks a lot Felix --Alltec GmbH (talk) 09:12, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

@Revent:: the template you entered on the user's talk page is broken and the ticket is not accessible to permission operators. Ankry (talk) 10:02, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
@Ankry: Whoops, I fixed the template... tried to 'name' a parameter that's not named. I had also linked it on the talk page however. The ticket number isn't 'broken', it's just in the dewiki queue (not commons), but was verified by a Commons admin who has access to the dewiki queue... see otrswiki:Café#Need_a_dewiki_ticket_checked_for_Commons. AFAIK, the ticket only addresses the 'identity' of the account. Reventtalk 10:16, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, that ticket is not in a permissions queue, so it cannot be accessed (and thus confirmed) by Commons OTRS members. Secondly, it apparently identifies that the Alltec_GmbH account is genuinely affiliated with that company (Alltec); this is distinct from identifying that 1) Alltec is the copyright holder of these works and 2) that Alltec has released those rights under a free license. These are very different types of ticket and the latter is needed especially because these are promotional images taken from http://www.foba.de, where Alltec ≠ Foba. Why would we accept a ticket from Alltec for @fobalaser.com images? Эlcobbola talk 14:35, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
Hello all, FOBA is the Brand from Alltec GmbH. I think when we start to publish our images for two years, I think I would be not allowed to create a "Brand Account", so we take this way and create a company account. If it changed or this way is wrong please give me an idea how it works for wikipedia and how can I fix this issue. --Alltec GmbH (talk) 06:37, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi,

It was a screenshot taken from the computer game Skullstone. I'm the author of that game, it was used in Wikipedia page. --FrozenShade666 (talk) 15:16, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Presumably the game has several developers that all must agree to license any screenshots. Thuresson (talk) 03:03, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Several problems here:

  • I find the image on Twitter without a free license. That could be solved if the copyright holder sends a free license to OTRS, but the other problems overwhelm it.
  • I find nothing on the Web about the game except limited, pre-release puffing by its developers. Also, despite the comment above, I see no WP article. That means that the game is probably out of scope because it is not notable.
  • Anything done here or on WP by the game's developers violates policy on Conflict of Interest.
  • It looks to me like the attempt to put the game here is simply more pre-release puffing, which violates Commons policy on advertising and promotion.

On Commons, the difference in capitalization is important. Since the IP user who posted this UnDR did not link the file, I turned up the wrong one.
As far as this image (File:JP portrait.jpg) goes, "this portrait belongs to our family 's stock" is probably not relevant.

File:Nick Verreos IOTW Fashion Week.jpg should be undeleted and reposted.

As the Wiki records indicate, the photo referenced above was uploaded by user Nikolaki2. Nikolaki2 is the account for design label Nikiolaki, which was founded and is owned by designer Nick Verreos and designer/photographer David Paul. There was no reason for this photo to have deleted. The only reason for the deletion is that, after more than 3 years, someone said they thought the photograph looked too professional! The photographer, David Paul, is a designer as well as a highly-skilled photographer. So, it would be questionable if the photo didn't look professional. The only other place the photo has been published is the blog posted by Nick Verreos. Nick Verreos is the subject in the picture and, as stated above, the co-owner of Nikolaki.

Hi, could I please request undeletion of file File:Refugecollection.jpg

I know the owner of the content (Steve Dillon) and have his permission to use the image to enhance the Wikipedia database.

Could you please let me know if there is a way to have Mr Dillon confirm this?

Thankyou in advance

Please restore File:Mt Noorat.jpg was removed by Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:42, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

THIMC, The image is an extract from Google Earth. Before adding I reviewed Commons policy as well as Google permissions. I followed the advice from Google permissions, namely "As long as you follow the guidance on this page, and attribute the Content correctly, feel free to move forward with your project" (https://www.google.com.au/permissions/geoguidelines.html, and (https://www.google.com.au/permissions/geoguidelines/attr-guide.html). Googles advice is that by using the Google provided API "Google Earth Pro", and ensuring that the automatically "baked in" attribution is not removed from the image, then we are unencumbered in using it. The attribution line included in the image is "Google Earth, Image © 2016 Digital Globe", which cites Google, and the digital provider, as Google requires. Google do not give written permissions as a matter of policy, and it is no surprise considering the administrative burden that would impose. They instead give a blanket permission as long as you attribute the material according to their guidelines, which I have. This should be treated as copyrighted material for which permission has been provided for its use. The image linked to a Wikipedia page which had no image for the geological feature concerned, and the image provided an excellent exposition of the feature and directly related to the descriptive text adjacent. No other image of the feature was available on commons. Please restore it. I am disappointed that when I followed the guidelines, and gave this information in the submission to the documentation, that the addition was subject to a bot removal.

File:The Whitby-Loftus Line. Published 25th April, 2012..JPG

Dear Sir,

I, Michael Aufrere Williams, am the author of this book and I uploaded the photograph of the book's cover. Confusion no doubt arose as my user name at that time was Fiders41 (now changed to Michael Aufrere Williams). Therefore please insert the photograph of the book's cover.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Michael A. Williams Michael Aufrere Williams (talk) 19:01, 19 September 2016 (UTC)19th September, 2016.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Three problems here. First, this is a copyrighted book and we have no way here of knowing that User:Michael Aufrere Williams is actually the author of the book. We routinely solve that by having the publisher send a free license to OTRS.
Second, we will need proof that you have properly licensed the copyright to the photograph on the cover. That may also be sent to OTRS. Since you wrote a masters thesis in 2010, it is very unlikely (although not, of course, impossible0 that you are old enough to have taken a photograph before 1959 and that the photograph is actually your own work as claimed.
Third, and most serious, the book does not appear at Amazon.com, so there is a real question of whether it is notable and therefore within the scope of Commons. I note that you have cited several of your writings in the article Whitby, Redcar and Middlesbrough Union Railway. It is against policy on both Commons and WP:EN to use the projects for advertising your work. Conflict of Interest is also something we take seriously and citing works which you wrote is a clear problem. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:09, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The source indeed says photos of authors are CC-by-SA; however, that site is dated 21 May 2016 and this image previously appeared here at least as early as 09 March 2016 with the notice "© Modesty Comics". This could be COM:LL; I would say COM:PRP requires some sort of explanation/reconciliation if this is to be restored. Эlcobbola talk 15:51, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
    • Obviously for all speakers of Serbian, page from 21st May is an official Modesty Comics press release, when all materials were released via USUS official site. Press release is also signed by owner of Modesty Comics, Živojin Tamburić himself, who is also member of Association Of Serbian Comic Creators (USUS, Udruženje stripskih umetnika Srbije). Thus all text and photos are officially under CC license from that moment. I would like some other Serbian users to confirm this fact. And I would like to remind that USUS officially adopted its licensing policy under influence and suggestion of Serbian Wikipedia several years ago. --Stripar (talk) 16:06, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
      • The signature of Živojin Tamburić appears before the photo of Pahek and the related biography, suggesting the photo/bio were not part of the purported release. One does not sign documents in the middle, even in Serbia. If the owner of Modesty Comics has released this with a CC license, it would be a trivial matter to submit confirmation using the process at COM:OTRS. Until then, there is no evidence that the USUS post would override the Modesty Comic notice. The discrepancy needs to be reconciled. Эlcobbola talk 16:16, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
        • OK, I will let both Modesty Comics and USUS to deal with that particular image and COM:OTRS. In meantime, may I use on Wikipedias other two images from same category (Željko Pahek), which both are exclusively published on USUS site and thus automatically cleared on Commons, per its licensing? --Stripar (talk) 16:28, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

OK, I have used "Zeljko Pahek, artist (2015).jpg" for which there is no doubt and discrepancy is it under CC license. As for general legal confirmation, it will be send tomorrow on behalf of official parties. --Stripar (talk) 20:11, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

The image was deleted per this request. The closing admin @Taivo: concluded that "nothing special is depicted" and that the image was not in the project scope of Commons. I think that the depiction of the fog or clouds in the valley is in fact a valuable subject, but there are certain bits and pieces that make me oppose the restoration of this particular image. In my opinion, the perspective was quite poorly chosen: even if the trees on the right side and parts of the sky are cropped out, you would still have the useless metal frame in the centre of the photo. We have better images in Category:Sea of clouds. De728631 (talk) 16:45, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
  • The reason for deletion can be found at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Thanisthan, Bandipur.jpg. The request and rationale are not particularly well worded, but I read it to be essentially an invocation of "poor or mediocre files of common and easy to capture subjects may have no realistic educational value, especially if Commons already hosts many similar or better quality examples" from COM:NOTUSED. The image is not in focus, is tilted, is poorly framed, etc. as per De728631 above. Is there a particular reason this is unique or otherwise educational?

also, this website don't seems to be a notable reference as well. One can contact the copyright holder on social media if needed with his name 'Gaurang Anand' as I can't post here an agreement indicating the usage of the same!

The image had been uploaded by the creator with all credits and copyrights about free use then what else need to be proved?

thanks Jaydev Pala (talk)

Your are correct about revolvy.com, thank you for pointing it out.
The subject image was first uploaded by User:Jaydev Pala as File:AbhinayBankerWriter.jpg and was claimed as "own work". That version had no meaningful EXIF. The version above was uploaded by User:The gaurang anand and also claimed as "own work". The second version has EXIF claiming that the copyright holder is Gaurang Anand, but, given that it is different from the earlier version, I suspect strongly that that is a fake. Also note that it is the only upload by this user.
Given the history of two different people claiming to be the photographer and the history of changes in EXIF, I would oppose keeping this image on Commons no matter what evidence might be presented through OTRS.
Note also that your claims above about User:coderzombie are entirely incorrect -- I have reviewed his recent DRs and they are all valid and most have been closed as 'delete'. None have been closed as 'kept'. Your assertion that he must have a Conflict of Interest is not in the best interests of Commons. Making false accusations against colleagues may result in your being blocked from editing here. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:27, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
I have no vested interest in removing the images by this user, but this user has consistent record of abusing Wikipedia. He has uploaded many copyrighted pictures and all have been deleted. That's the reason I am suspicious that the other account might be sockpuppet of the same user. Coderzombie (talk) 13:31, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

I did a quick search and it seems a photographer named "Gaurang Anand" has clicked pictures of "Abhinay Banker" and he has some on his facebook photography page. If he can verify that he has indeed released the picture with required license. That should be ok I guess. Right? facebook page. Coderzombie (talk) 13:44, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

File:KSO vaakuna.png

Hi,

I would like to provide evidence why the decision to delete this picture was unfounded. The decision 1997:11 by the Copyright Council under the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture states that all the Coats of Arms of the municipalities of Finland are not copyright protected due to the 9th paragraph (9§) of the Finnish Copyright Law regarding the copyrights of public decisions.

Keskisuomalainen Osakunta (KSO) is a student nation, and according the the Finnish university laws, it is an autonomous statutory corporation. Like for the Finnish municipalities, the decisions made by student nations are the use of public policy. This means that the 9th paragraph of the copyright law of Finland also holds for student nations. Hence, I argue that the decision to delete the picture was wrong.
— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaakkogo (talk • contribs) 16:59, 04 September 2016 (UTC)
There may be something missing in translation, but an "autonomous statutory corporation" makes it sound like it would be treated like any other corporation / legal person, and would not be considered a public authority (part of public government). Universities themselves are legally corporations from the looks of it, which are therefore also not public bodies. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:31, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The Keskisuomalainen Osakunta is not a municipality. According to Nations in Finnish universities, the existence and overall purpose of these Nations is regulated by the Universities Act. That an act says "The University of Helsinki shall have Finnish- and Swedish-language student nations corresponding to specified regions of the country" does not establish them as governmental entities, and language therein only supports, through implication, that they are private (e.g. " The student nations shall be self governing", "Provisions concerning the members, administration, finances and other operation of the student nations and the duty of the members to pay fees to the nation shall be laid down in the rules of the student nations", etc.) Эlcobbola talk 22:01, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
You are wrong about the student nations being completely "private" entities. There are plenty of self governing public organizations in Finland, for example all the university student unions. They all are part of the indirect public administration in Finland. Student nations are not municipalities, but they are related. As the previous page states "Although the organisations of indirect State administration are not part of the actual State administration, they carry out statutory public tasks and, in some cases, execute public powers". I don't know if you can find a translation for the Finnish Copyright Law but it states that all public decisions are excluded from having a copyright. I brought up the case regarding the municipalities' coats of arms since it was similar legal case and it works well as a reference point. Student nation's decision about their coat of arms falls under this. The student nations have probably around 4000 members in total so it would be rather optimistic to hope that there were many specific legal cases about them. But if this doesn't convince you, I would like to know how could the image be reinstated? I am actually the treasurer of the said student nation and I honestly believe we can't grant a permission to use some picture that we can't legally claim copyright to. That decision might be illegal. Do we need to get a court decision to prove this? --Jaakkogo (talk) 19:01, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
The World Intellectual Property Organization provides a translation. A coat of arms for a student nation (organization) is not 1) a law or decree; 2) a resolution, stipulation or other document (these all imply prose); 3) a treaty, convention or other international obligation document; 4) a decision or statement; or 5) a translation of a document. To the extent you imply the "Copyright Council under the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture" found otherwise, and that coats of arms are indeed among one of those categorizes, your own words are that the council's findings pertain to "Coats of Arms of the municipalities of Finland". A student nation, even if chartered or organized by an organ of the state, is not a municipality. If you want to restore this image, we need to receive permission directly from Keskisuomalainen Osakunta indicating that the coat of arms is free. If what you say is true, this should be a very simple to obtain. Эlcobbola talk 19:53, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand your point of view into some extend. But the Coat of arms and its chosen design is indeed a decision made by the student nation and hence it falls under the part 4) of the section 9 of the law. I can't understand how can you claim that it wasn't a decision. The precise form of the coat of arms is stated in written form in each student nations rules. How do you think those rules are made if not by a decision made by the student nation? The student nation has only written down on how its coat of arms should look like and the version I downloaded here was actually made by me.
Or do I understand correctly that you disagree about the student nations being "public authorities or other public bodies" as the law states? That also is that I can't understand since the student nations and their legal statuses are clearly founded in the university law. The fact that they are, makes them a public organization. I brought the case about Finnish municipalities up because it resembles this one and in jurisdiction similarities between legal cases and statements are important. The board even used these same argument in their decision.
Anyways, this probably can't be settled unless we give a direct permission. Would you care to advice us on how to provide this evidence? To whom shall we send it and what are the required evidence that it actually comes from us? I will most likely ask a statement from the copyright council regarding all Finnish student nations but that might take time and we would like to have the picture reinstated before that. --Jaakkogo (talk) 22:09, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Second, although the blazon (the written description of the CoA) may be PD, that does not make the specific realization shown here PD. It is often the case that the CoA is old or PD for other reasons, but this affects only the blazon -- the actual drawing has a separate copyright which must also be free.

File:C215-StreetArtFest2016-Grenoble-Mur6.jpg

These files have been delete by --ghouston because he "think these are copyrighted murals, so licenses from the artists are required".

First, before deleting files, please, ask me if I have the artist permission. I sent an email to the artist named "C215" to ask him to publish these captures on wikipedia, after the Grenoble Street Art Fest and he agreed. Consequently, please, undelete theses files. Thx

File:Comic mural Olivier Rameau, Dany (Daniel Henrotin), Brussels.jpg and more

Hello,

As you know, in Belgium there is now Freedom of Panorama. Therefore I am requesting here to restore all my following pictures, which were just deleted because of lack of FOP. At that time I had not experience enough and I did not konw about the FOP. However, since the 15 july 2016, the FOP exist in Belgium (have a look here: Commons:Freedom of panorama). Now they can be all restored:

List

Thank you!

--Ferran Cornellà (talk) 09:56, 25 September 2016 (UTC)


Hmm. I'm not so sure. Clearly, any of these murals that were created entirely by the artist who painted them are now OK for Commons, and should be restored.
However, it appears that many of them include comic characters that themselves are copyrighted, so that there are two copyrights at work, that for the comic character and that for this representation of the comic character. I think that it is very likely -- certainly beyond our standard of "significant doubt" -- that most, perhaps all of those murals are not licensed from the holders of the copyrights for the characters portrayed.
FOP only works on the copyright belonging to the artist who created the public work. It does not allow use of works that themselves infringe on other copyrights. We cannot keep an image of Charlie Brown just because someone has painted it on a wall in an FOP country without a license from Charles Schultz's estate. Unless the mural shown in File:Comic wall Le jeune Albert, Yves Chaland, Brussels.jpg has a license from Yves Chaland's heirs, we cannot keep it, either.
I suggest that we close this request and that Ferran Cornellà post two UnDRs, one for those images that show works that are not derivative works and the other, those that are. We can then rapidly undelete the former and consider the latter more carefully. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:04, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

File:Female shows her paintings.jpg

In Commons:Deletion requests/File:Female shows her paintings.jpg, two reasons for deletion were argued:

  • Per nom.: «How the photo is in project scope? Who are these people?», asks User:Taivo
  • Closing remarks: «Maybe in scope, maybe not», says User:Jameslwoodward
Symbol keep vote.svg Keep: This photo shows a jury scene pertaining to a competition to chose images for U.S. Federal Duck Stamps, a subject which is in scope.
  • Question (not a delete vote): «What is the copyright status of that painting depicted?», asks User:Jkadavoor
  • Closing remarks: «we will need a license from the» author of the depicted painting, says User:Jameslwoodward
Symbol keep vote.svg Keep, for two reasons, both concurrent and antagonic:
  1. In the deleted photo, the painting is de minimis. I understand that its central position on the photo, regardless of how large it is on it, might support the opposing view, but this photo would retain much or all of its interest should the painting be blurred or blanked (a litmus test for cases of DM): Everybody knows how a duck painting might look like, but the photo shows us the four jury members seating facing the author (or merely a presenter?), and shows us that the event took place in a room with taxidermied birds, which are interesting details for the history of these competitions.
  2. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the copyright owner of entries competing in the Federal Duck Stamp Contest‎, and therefore fully qualifies to licence the whole of this photo, painting included, as it did in the case at hand. Or so we can infer from the fact that we have in Commons for over two years 266 fac simile images of such entries, licensed as CC-by-sa by the refered U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in some of their Flickr streams and added to Commons as such in 2014, unchallended so far. (Should this be incorrect, these 266 images should be subjected to a deletion nomination on much stronger terms than the case at hand.)

Please consider undeletion. -- Tuválkin 17:04, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Keep deleted if the painting is all rights reserved. As far I know, the status is not mentioned in the file description, nor replied to my question in that DR. Jee 17:09, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
User:Jkadavoor, the now deleted filepage was very scarce in detail and even less in useful detail. (One example, from memory: it was tagged with "Category:Four females", while the photo shows two men and three women…) There’s no indication that the filename of this photo is in any way a “title” chosen by its photographer or other of samesuch consequence, instead of (as I presume) something hastily penned by someone with scarce knowledge or interest in its subject matter (I’m actually convinced now, after browsing our other photos of similar events, that the nominal “female” is not an author, but a contest staff member who’s holding for the jury each entry, one by one, for their appraisal). The only useful things I could use when I tried to add more information to the file page, before its untimely deletion, were gathered from the photographed scene, not from the additional data grabbed from Flickr.
Your «question in that DR» was implicitly replied. To be clear: My argument is that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service holds copyright to all submited entries, as suggested by the contents of our Category:Illustrations from Federal Duck Stamp Contest.
-- Tuválkin 23:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
1. If it is beyond any doubts that "U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service holds copyright to all submited entries", I've no objections to keep that file. But it should be added in file descriptions. 2. Other stuff exists is not a valid argument here. They too may deleted at any moment. 3. I hate arguments like it is because of someone commented there. I just saw it because someone mentioned it in a highly visible page. Jee 08:57, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The painting is far from de minimis -- in fact, it is the whole point (and the title) of the photograph, that the painter is showing off her work. The area that a work occupies is never relevant if it is the focus of the photograph. In order for something to be de minimis, it must be completely incidental to the purpose of the image -- in this case, the painting and other things on the wall to the right are de minimis, because the image would have the same effect if it were a blank wall. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:10, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
You are saying that the now deleted image would be meaningless and useless should the depicted lady be holding up a blank or blurred card? Well, I disagree: One could still learn a lot of accidental details about how jury sittings work in this contest, which is what makes this photo interesting, unlike the umptieth illustration of a duck. -- Tuválkin 23:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Jim. However, if "this photo would retain much or all of its interest should the painting be blurred or blanked" is your position, I don't imagine anyone would object to you re-uploading the image after having done just that. Эlcobbola talk 22:51, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
(Yes, it’s my position: I file undeletion requests based on my opinions and views, not other’s; I believe that’s how things are usually done.) If I uploaded a version of this image, after its deletion (which is unlikely because I cannot locate it now), with the painting area blanked or blurred, I’d be immediately blocked for a month or two. As you know so well. -- Tuválkin 23:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I will be monitoring the contents of Category:Illustrations from Federal Duck Stamp Contest. This category, as said, includes 266 fac simile images (the exact opposite of de minimis, unlike the elucubrations penned above) of other such paintings, which are, like this one, entries to the U.S. Federal Duck Stamp Contest: As said, these were added to Commons trusting that their copyrights are held by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, who relicensed them as CC-by-sa in its Flickr streams. The very same U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service owns the copyright of the photograph pertaining to this request. If this request is declined, that means that the Wikimedia Commons community doesn’t accept that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is entitled to license the drawings and paintings submitted to the U.S. Federal Duck Stamp Contest, and therefore these 266 files should be deleted (as also many photos depicting these illustrations, as on the photo of this request).
Unless the involved parties have no interest in any of these duck tales and are simply engaged in cronyist defense of each other after yet another case of bad faith against User:Fæ: Since Fæ said «don’t delete this one», it was deleted… Now dare to delete the other >266 way more flagrant cases of the same copyvio issue, or don’t (which I hope you wont) and thus unmask yourselves as moved by bad faith and disregard for the project.
-- Tuválkin 23:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Scope? I agree with Jim "«Maybe in scope, maybe not», as it does not matter when we talk about potential copyright violations (but yes it is in scope). De Minimis? against as per Jim, of course it is not DM, the duck drawing is obviously the main feature of the photo. Copyright violation? well in such contest when submitting your artwork you may have to give to the entity the right to license your work, it will be helpful to can read the rules of the contest. Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:13, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
As Christian says, we need a basis for the assertion that Federal Duck Stamps are PD. That would run counter to every other created work that I know of purchased by the Federal Government. See, for example,the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the cited DRs at Category:Official presidential painted portraits in the White House and File:Sacagawea dollar obverse.png.
We also need a basis for the assertion that this painting was made into a Federal Duck Stamp. The image comes from a third party site and is said to be by a F&WS employee (see http://www.public-domain-image.com/free-images/people/female-shows-her-paintings/attachment/female-shows-her-paintings). There is nothing there to say whether this was merely one of the entrants in the contest or a winner. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:24, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Further to the above, the subject painting does not appear to have been a winner in 2016, see https://www.fws.gov/birds/get-involved/duck-stamp/2016-contest-results.php
At https://www.fws.gov/help/notices.html#copyright the F&WS explicitly calls out Federal Duck Stamps as restricted -- "The restrictions described above apply also to the use of the images of the Federal Duck Stamps." .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:47, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
In which case the website terms are incorrect or misleading. FWS website terms (implicitly contract law) do not override Federal law as it applies to property of the USPS, and stamps of artworks dating before 1978 are by default public domain. -- (talk) 12:10, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I just added this post to the image talk page but it will be better served here; some comments refer to the post at that talk page.
Unfortunately, no publicly shared does not mean public domain. There is absolutely no evidence, either online or in what has been stated that proves or even indicates this is a public domain image. As I stated, if it were, then the 2D copyright tag used would be correct but no on has proven that, just stated it was on facebook and is no longer there. That proves nothing. Coral v Bridgeman does not apply because one must first verify the image is in the public domain and that is is a "slavish copy". The creator Nahed Hattar was Jordanian so I think we shall have to wait until 2042 for this image to fall out of copyright which will be 25 years pma+ according to Commons:Copyright_rules_by_territory#Jordan.

Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 Heritage Walk Team

These were deleted as "not realistically useful for an educational purpose", yet in the DR it was explained that they were part of the Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 Heritage Walk Team from Thrissur and renames were suggested to make the titles more meaningful. They appear to be the only photographs of the team itself, rather than the monuments, that were uploaded to Commons from the event. For these reasons they are in scope.

File:Montakhab Jameeat Baghdad celebrating, 1975.jpg

The image is an inartistic photographic work in nature that was first published in Iraq before 1 January 1999. It is in the according to Law No. 3 of 1971, amended by Order No. 83 in 2004 as it is mentioned in the template below:

--Hashima20 (talk) 17:10, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

The photograph may have been taken in 1975 but do you have evidence that it was really published before 1999? It looks like someone's personal snapshot rather than a press photo that made it to the newspapers, so if it was first published in this forum then the rationale doesn't work. De728631 (talk) 17:36, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
As it states in the forum, the publisher of the post in the forum cropped the photo out of a 1975 edition of the University of Baghdad magazine and took a snapshot of it. --Hashima20 (talk) 17:48, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't think that can be correct. When a newspaper photo is scanned -- whether you scan the newspaper itself or, as claimed here, a photo of a newspaper, the very coarse halftone screen always shows in the scan, usually as a moire with the scan resolution. Therefore newspaper images that are uploaded to Commons are unmistakable. This image shows no sign of the halftone screen, therefore I doubt very much that it came from a newspaper. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:25, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
If it was taken from a magazine as Hashima20 wrote, and not from a newspaper, would there still be a halftone screen? AFAIK magazine images tend to have better resolutions. De728631 (talk) 15:52, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
(ec) FWIW, Hashima20 said magazine, not newspaper, which would change the consideration of halftones. That said, the areas of black on the edges suggest this is a scan of a standalone photograph, not of a page from a publication, be it newspaper or magazine. Эlcobbola talk 16:01, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per COM:PRP. To paraphrase: "someone in an internet forum said they got it from a university magazine" is not adequate evidence. COM:L requires "information sufficient for others to verify the license status" which is not a threshold I believe to have been met, especially given that this appears to be a standalone photograph (i.e. not scanned from a publication) per my comment above. Эlcobbola talk 16:01, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Other than the not adequate evidence part, the photo was actually cropped from the magazine because the University of Baghdad magazine is known for its hard paper so the publisher of the post, who is a known archivist, could have simply cropped out the photo from the magazine but the hard paper made it look like a standalone photograph. --Hashima20 (talk) 19:02, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
I copied it into GIMP and blew it up to 800% and saw no sign of the halftone, which would have been present if it came from a publication. I also note that the corners are rounded, which would be typical of a simple photo, but not present if the image were simply clipped from a publication. In order to keep it Commons requires proof beyond a significant doubt that it has been published. So far, that is completely lacking. .     Jim . . . .

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Bowl of Hygieia

The symbol of the Bowl of Hygieia has a history dating several centuries. It is the international symbol for pharmacies. Though the original source is disputed, no current designer or company could possibly claim that they have a unique copyright of the design, due to any modern version being direct derivatives of centuries old icons, drawings and signs. For example refer to https://www.rpharms.com/museum-pdfs/13-pharmaceutical-symbols.pdf.

I ask that the list of images are undeleted and the DR reopened for a longer and better informed discussion to take place. -- (talk) 21:43, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The seven images in the subject DR are all direct DWs of File:Bowl hygeia.jpg which was deleted because it had no source, no author, and no license. While you may argue that modern representations of ancient symbols cannot have a copyright, that will vary country to country and without a source, we don;t know whether it would apply here. I also note that File:Bowl hygeia.jpg is significantly different from figure 19 at https://www.rpharms.com/museum-pdfs/13-pharmaceutical-symbols.pdf. .     Jim . . . .

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose "no current designer or company could possibly claim that they have a unique copyright of the design, due to any modern version being direct derivatives of centuries old icons, drawings and signs" is nonsense. This is akin to arguing no image of Santa Claus or a dragon could be original because they are invariably derived from centuries old drawings. Disney would disagree. In the US, all that is required for a work to be original is that the author contributed more than a mere trivial variation (Kamar International Inc v. Russ Berrie and Co). There are almost infinite ways to vary non-trivially the depiction of a chalice/bowl entwined by a serpent; for example, this version is worlds apart from this version. Further, "the mere fact that [an author] used a matter in the public domain does not in and of itself preclude a finding of originality, since [they] may have added unique features to the matter so as to render it copyrightable." (R. Dakin & Co. v. A & L Novelty Co.) Indeed, even the replica Statue of Liberty in Las Vegas, Nevada is sufficiently original to have its own copyright (Registration Nos. VAu 1-090-876 and VA 1-882-070). Эlcobbola talk 22:36, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Firstly, as a general proposition, the copyright would be held by the photographer, not the subject (the wording here implies a reliance on a belief in the latter, but I would readily defer to native Czech speakers) and, secondly, regardless of the original copyright holder, the transferal of those rights to the uploader, if indeed true, would have been done by written conveyance.
