Hmm. I agree that there is probably nothing here that is copyrightable, but I'd like a German speaking Admin to confirm that.

File:Gestandaardiseerde woningbouw - Standardized housing (9322119032).jpg

File:Gestandaardiseerde woningbouw - Standardized housing (9322119032).jpg was deleted per Commons:Deletion requests/File:Gestandaardiseerde woningbouw - Standardized housing (9322119032).jpg after my nomination. I've recently contacted the archive on another similar case (see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Huis - House (9547367952).jpg), here they were able to verify that indeed the rights were transferred. The answer convinces me that their releases of works are indeed on valid grounds, and therefore I think this files licensing can be trusted and thus the file can be undeleted. Pinging @Krd: as deleting admin, pinging @: as uploader. Basvb (talk) 18:46, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

If there is already contact established, OTRS permission should be achieved IMO. --Krd 11:04, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
@Krd: The permission is already provided on Flickr, at least the permission from the archive. The email I got is a clarification from their side, not a permission in itself (Having those kinds of non-permission emails in OTRS doesn't add a lot IMO). Another thing would be to ask them to provide the individual permissions from the architects, but that is not something that I see happening. Basvb (talk) 11:18, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done: We can always discuss if we should use OTRS or not but that is not a reason to keep a file deleted after the copyright status has been cleared. @Basvb: could you please update the file page with this new and highly relevant information? Thank your for all your effort regarding this image!. --Natuur12 (talk) 13:24, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

@Natuur12:, the recent developments were on another (related/exactly the same situation) image which resulted (IMO) in new insights for this image. I'm not sure which new and highly relevant information I could update this image which, I could do some general clean-up/categorisation, but that's not based on new information. Basvb (talk) 19:06, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

File:SchmidAlteTH.jpg File:SchmidRS.jpg wiederherstellen

Hallo

Die beiden Dateien Datei:SchmidAlteTH.jpg und File:SchmidRS.jpg (beide in Category:Kantonsschule Trogen) wurden automatisch von Benutzer:CommonsDelinker gelöscht, obwohl die Einverständiserklärung am 24.5.16. an Permission von Heidi Eisenhut (Kantonsbibliothek Appenzell Außerrhoden) gemailt wurde und die Dateien mit {OTRS pending} gekennzeichnet waren.

Am 26.8.16 bat ich per Mail an permissions-de um Wiederherstellung, habe aber seither nichts mehr gehört... Ich benötige die beiden Dateien u.a. für Vorträge über Wikipedia und das Archiv, das ich betreue. Bitte um Wiederherstellung. Herzliche Grüsse! --Archive Aurora (talk) 21:12, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Commons Delinker hat nur die jeweiligen Links aus der Wikipedia entfernt (daher der Name). Gelöscht wurden beide Dateien von @JuTa: mit der Begründung, dass seit 1. Juli tatsächlich keine OTRS-Erklärung vorgelegen hat. Frage an die Kollegen von OTRS: ist diese Mail an vielleicht an permissions-de geschickt worden und wurde nicht an Commons weitergeleitet? De728631 (talk) 19:26, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Hallo De728631. Vielen Dank für deine Antwort! Ich habe nachgeschaut: Das Mail ging an permissions-de@wikimedia.org. Am 26.9.16 ging nochmals eine Einverständiserklärung an permissions-commons-de@wikimedia.org. Anscheinend habe ich mehrere Mailadressen für Einverständiserklärungen verwendet.... Welches ist nun die richtige Mailadresse und an wen muss ich mich nun wenden, um diese Probleme zu lösen? Vielen Dank und herzliche Grüsse--Archive Aurora (talk) 06:59, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Erst einmal sollten die Bearbeiter bei OTRS prüfen, was damals auf permissions-de eingegangen ist. Ich werde mal ein paar Benutzer dazu ansprechen. Danach können wir schauen, wie's weiter geht. De728631 (talk) 13:16, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
Ich habe gerade von Steinsplitter die Auskunft bekommen, dass der Vorgang bei OTRS noch nicht bearbeitet wurde und es auch noch eine Weile dauern wird, bis man sich darum kümmern kann. Wartezeiten von einigen Monaten sind bei OTRS leider die Regel, weil die Mannschaft dort chronisch unterbesetzt ist und es auch alles freiwillige Helfer sind, die sich in ihrer Freizeit um solche Mails kümmern. Für dich bedeutet das, dass du leider noch etwas warten musst, aber sobald deine Mail bearbeit worden ist, können wir die Dateien wohl wieder herstellen.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Unless noted otherwise, everything you find on the web is copyrighted and not permitted here. As Kumkum told you, the Turkish government uses a non-commercial-only license. We only accept media that can be used by anyone for any purpose, including commercial. Storkk (talk) 17:01, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. I have 1 questions. Where specifically indicated that the materials are non-commercial-only license? Quotation please. (in §2, §3d, §29 from Law n°4982 on Right Of Information Acquirement nothing is said about it) Gl dili (talk) 18:57, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I cannot read Turkish, so I can only guess that the relevant text is "Bu Kanunla erişilen bilgi ve belgeler ticarî amaçla çoğaltılamaz ve kullanılamaz."... but in any case, that is irrelevant: you need to provide, specifically, the wording that releases the material under a free license as we define it. Without that, the image cannot be restored. The onus is on you, the uploader or "keep/restore" requester. Storkk (talk) 20:25, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
@Kumkum: could you please provide the quote to Gl dili just for completeness's sake? Storkk (talk) 20:27, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
Yep. The §2 says "this law concern all state entities" (Bu Kanun; kamu kurum ve kuruluşları ile kamu kurumu niteliğindeki meslek kuruluşlarının faaliyetlerinde uygulanır.), the §3 says "all sort of data" (her türlü veriyi), the §29 says "everything concerned by this law cannot be used for commercial purposes" (Bu Kanunla erişilen bilgi ve belgeler ticarî amaçla çoğaltılamaz ve kullanılamaz.). Kumkum (talk) 20:34, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
You're lying and misleading!!! 1) This document we are talking about a very different. There are no words: information, use, license. These words are required!

2) This page https://www.tccb.gov.tr/cumhurbaskanligi/sss/ say "Cumhurbaşkanı'nın fotoğrafını edinmek için nereye başvurabiliriz?" translate "Where can apply use a photograph of the President?" and link to page http://www.tccb.gov.tr/receptayyiperdogan/portreler/. The official website says that you can use photos from there, it's not enough?
3) How do you explain the fact that the images from this site for a long time there in Wikipedia https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:10_T%C3%BCrk_Liras%C4%B1_front.jpg
4)And now the most important thing! Why is this government site Turkey http://dergipark.ulakbim.gov.tr/dpusbd/article/view/5000126413, is a license if commercial use is prohibited at all government documents? On page http://dergipark.ulakbim.gov.tr/dpusbd/article/view/5000126413 says "This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License" Gl dili (talk) 21:08, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

This law is absolutely clear ; banknotes licensing is something else in Commons ; the link you brought, witch is not a turkish state institution (it's a review, the ADS review) has actually the right to give its work the licencing it wants, as it is not concerned by the law 4982. Kumkum (talk) 23:07, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

 Not done It's clear that the site from which the photo was taken does not have any free license and that the cited Turkish law gives such things an NC license, which is not acceptable here. Gl dili must avoid accusing people of lying -- while we occasionally make mistakes (but not in this case), experienced editors on Commons very rarely lie. Such accusations are against policy and if repeated may lead to the accuser being blocked form editing. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:15, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Image of Millicent Baxter's book, The Memoirs of Millicent Baxter, published 1981.jpg

I requested permission to use this image on WP from the person who took the photo. I have an email from him granting permission. Do I need to log that here somehow? MurielMary (talk) 04:12, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are six copyrights here -- the copyright for the photograph of the book, held by the photographer, the copyright for the book cover, held by the publisher, and the copyrights for each of the four photographs, held by their photographers. Taking them in order:

  • While you have permission from the photographer for the use of the photograph on WP, both WP and Commons require broader free licenses, to use the image anywhere by anybody for any purpose, including commercial use. This must be sent directly from the photographer using the procedure at OTRS.
  • The publisher must also send a free license to OTRS.
  • It is unlikely that the publisher has licenses for the four photographs that allows it to freely license the use of the photographs for other purposes. It is much more likely that it has no licenses, or that they are licensed solely for the purpose of the book cover. Unless the publisher actually has a free license for the four images which allows it to sublicense them freely, you must get free licenses from each of the four photographers, also via OTRS.
Note that this is a New Zealand book, so the copyrights lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. Copyrights for a 1961 work must still be in force.

File:RalphFlanders1910.jpg

Clearly PD based on the explanation given over a month ago at User_talk:Jcb#File:RalphFlanders1910.jpg. It's astonishing that an administrator appears to refuse pre-1923 publication as being compliant with COM:L.

As said by an administrator in a very similar Jcb case Commons:Undeletion_requests/Archive/2016-09, "sending people to com:UNDEL after the deletion rational has been countered is a bit of a dick move."

@HopsonRoad: as an interested party. -- (talk) 11:48, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I feel that too high a degree of caution was exercised in this case. It's difficult to produce copies of obscure machine-tool magazines to confirm the publication date. It's also a photograph of such low importance that the photographer's estate would be highly unlikely to contest its use here, if the case weren't proven, regarding publication. HopsonRoad (talk) 15:38, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
The key issue is that it was deleted without discussion. If anyone wants to discuss the publication history of the magazine and when the portrait would have been included (i.e. during Flanders' tenure, making it pre-1923), then it should be subject to a Deletion request where we can put down a record of opinions and known facts. The rapid "no source" deletions that appear to happen without consideration of likely copyright issues, has become poor practice and a hazard to all of our public domain material which has an incomplete publication or provenance record. -- (talk) 17:59, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

I ask to undelete this image, because even if it is not my own work (it is really made by somebody many years ago for my family), it takes part of my private family archive that I want to share with the users of wikipedia.

I have combined these requests into one, since the uploader and undeletion request is identical. Storkk (talk) 16:49, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Owning a copy of a photograph does not equate to owning its copyright, which almost always belongs to the photographer. These photos all likely have different photographers, some of whom may be members of your family. In those cases, the photographers (if alive) should confirm they agree to the license by following the instructions on COM:OTRS; they can write in Russian if that makes it easier. If they are no longer alive, their heirs may be able to release the rights. If the photographers are unknown (likely the studio family portrait, for example), it is unlikely we will be able to restore them as they are almost certainly still copyrighted (and will be until 70 years after the photographer's death). This is the case even if the photographer wouldn't remember, or wouldn't care (see COM:PRP). Storkk (talk) 16:59, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Blason DE empereur Adolphe de Nassau.svg

I have created this file from files available on commons. It was nominated for deletion with no other explanation than "Copyright issue". I asked for precision and provided the files I had used to make my file :

I got no further explanation on the "Copyright issue" and my file was deleted under the reason that the eagle was different from the source file (which is obvious as I mentionned that the file had been edited). If the file is really problematic, could at least someone give me a precise explanation of what the "Copyright issue" was ?

Biplanjaune (talk) 19:56, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

I don't understand this from a COM:SCOPE standpoint. Does the above imply that you are concocting your own blazon for Adolphe de Nassau ("own" not related to rights, but in the sense of own rendition--a fictitious or imagined blazon)? If so, how would that be realistically useful for an educational purpose? Эlcobbola talk 15:38, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
As long as the blazon, i.e. the heraldic description of a coat of arms, is observed it is totally irrelevant how the actual depiction is realised in terms of style and graphical details. There is not a unique valid rendition of a coat of arms but any artist is free to draw their own version according to the blazon, so this has nothing to do with COM:SCOPE. As I read Biplanjaune's request, he took some previously uploaded graphical elements as linked above and gave them a personal touch. That is alright given that the source content is freely licenced or PD. This procedure is a common practice at Commons when new images of arms are created. The only thing he forgot to do was attributing the source files and authors on his own upload from the beginning. This can be healed though so I support an undeletion. De728631 (talk) 21:12, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
I understand the distinction. The word "blazon" was used to mirror the file name. The issue, perhaps not well expressed, is that there is no source information whatsoever (i.e., we do not even have the heraldic description to determine, per Carl below, whether it's a known blazon and true to the description.) Эlcobbola talk 21:11, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support if it's a known blazon, and the above descriptions are true. The DR was lacking in information as to what the copyright issue actually was, so does not seem like a valid reason to delete on its face. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:20, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per my comment(s) above. The blazon vs. description issue is a red herring, as this image doesn't even have a source for the latter. Without a source for the description, reusers have no way of determining whether this is inline with the description, or merely a figment of the uploader's imagination. A realistic educational use is required, where educational is "providing knowledge; instructional or informative." Whether this provides knowledge, instruction or information cannot be assessed without a sourced heraldic description. Эlcobbola talk 21:11, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
    • Ok, I got your point, without a reference for the blazon it looks like Biplanjaune just made this up.

File:The Battle of Vimy Ridge.jpg

I don't quite understand why this file was so briskly deleted. The image sourcing did contained a link to the Canadian Library and Archives record which clearly indicates that Canada considers the copyright expired. The link to the record is here: [1]. The record also notes that the "Copyright entered in the Library of Congress". As this image was registered in the US before 1923 it's automatically PD in the US. The painting is the result of Jack's employment as a Canadian official war artist which is why the image record notes the Canadian War Records Office any why that office exercised copyright control in the UK. I'm not sure what I'm missing because this appears to be a straightforward keep.--Labattblueboy (talk) 05:35, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

The original copyright was owned by the Canadian War Memorials Fund, which appears to be a charity, not part of the Canadian government, so I don't think Crown Copyright applies. The copyright would have expired in Canada (50pma) and the US (published before 1923). They could be uploaded to en-wiki, for sure. However... even if a work for hire, the term is still usually based on the life of the human author. The "country of origin" is the country of first publication. It sounds like the painting was made in the UK by a British artist (who later emigrated to Canada). Per this page, it does sound like the CWMF commissioned works were displayed in London after the war and through the 1920s and 1930s. They were eventually moved to the National Gallery of Canada and later to another museum there. That admittedly does sound like the country of first publication is the UK, which is 70pma. Now... if they were *simultaneously* published (within 30 days) in Canada as well, that would change the country of origin to Canada, since (in the case of simultaneous publication) it is the one with the shorter term. But we may need some better evidence of that. The source link simply says the copyright has expired (which is true in Canada regardless of country of origin), not that it was Crown Copyright. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:14, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
My understanding was that the Canadian War Memorials Fund was in partnership between Lord Beaverbrook and the Canadian War Records Office, the creation and collection of the pieces being for the Canadian War Records Office. In effect Beaverbrook put up the cash by the CWRO was the holder.(Death So Noble: Memory, Meaning, and the First World War by Vance, p. 164-165). The fact that most Canadian War Artist were commissioned so that they could work in the field is clear demonstration of this partnership. Likewise, the image record at LAC clearly states that the Canadian War Records Office exercised authority over the publications of reproduction images in the UK images by The Medici Modern Art Society. The publication of Art and War: Canadian War Memorials in 1919 is also a clear demonstration that the Canadian War Records Office took control of publication rights of the images.--09:34, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose That may or may not be be case (I don't doubt it, but I have not investigated it either). However, it is largely irrelevant. As Carl says, since the work was first published (in the legal, copyright sense of the word) in the UK, then the country of origin is the UK and the UK copyright expires 70 years pma. Since Richard Jack died in 1952, it will be under UK copyright until 1/1/2023 and, since we require that works be free of copyright in the country of origin, we can't keep it until then. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:17, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
The key error is this assessment is that Jack never controlled copyright of the work. Any and all reproductions of the painting, in the UK and elsewhere cite either the Canadian War Records Office or later the Canadian War Museum. This is expected as the painting was due to the creator’s employment, rather than by a freelance creator.--Labattblueboy (talk) 19:53, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
It sounds like it was set up as a charity... if an external entity put up the money, I don't think it would count as being for the Crown (it would not be a work for hire if the government was not paying for it). If a private entity creates a work, they can donate it to the government, but it would not become Crown Copyright, but rather a normal copyright administered by the Crown. Anyways, the fund was explicitly claiming copyright back then (per the notices and US registrations), and if it was crown copyright, that would have been the claim instead. Per here, Beaverbrook also created the Canadian War Records Office using his own funds. Individual government departments usually don't claim copyright for themselves. @Jameslwoodward -- if it was Crown Copyright, that would trump the copyright term to be 50 years from publication. Once that happened the lifetime of the author ceased to matter. You might argue that if the work was first published by the government, it became Crown Copyright by the terms of the UK Copyright Act 1911. It just sounds like this was a pretty tenuous link to being a government department -- it was mostly a private effort engineered by Lord Beaverbrook, with permission from the Canadian government but not really under their control. It does seem that a lot of works were exhibited in January and February 1919 in London -- see here. If we could show that pamphlet was also distributed in Canada at the same time, that might help. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:34, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Undelete For a number of reasons:
  1. The work has an expired copyright in Canada. The link to the record is here: [2] and displayed under the Flickr feed of the Canadian Library and Archives fee here: [3]
  2. The Canadian Government via the Canadian War Records Office and subsequently the Canadian War Museum had exercised full copyright control of reproductions of the painting. This had been the case since 1919, demonstrating a long standing real and implied control of the work that has gone undisputed. The Canadian War Records office having licensed the Medici Modern Art Society to reproduce images of the work.
  3. My understanding is that under UK law, works created as commissions prior to 1 August 1989 were owned by the commissioner and not the creator.
  4. Although the painting was created for the Canadian War Memorials Fund (whose status is somewhat ambiguous), Jack was a paid commissioned officer (Major) in the Canadian War Record Office from 1916 to 1918. Full military records including pay records are found here:[4]. The works could be argued are the result of employment, not commission.
  5. The US Catalog of Copyright Entries (Part 4. Works of Art, Etc. New Series, Page 89, 1919, ref 4627-4636) notes the Canadian War Records Office as the copyright holder of "Battle of Vimy Ridge by Richard Jack"[5]--Labattblueboy (talk) 21:46, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support For those who don't have a Google Play account here is a public version of the US copyright catalog. The UK copyright act says that Crown copyright applies when a work is produced by an officer or servant of the Crown in the course of his duties (Chapter X, section 163). Jack was an officer in the Canadian War Records Office at the time he painted the work and it was commissioned for an "outgrowth" of the CWRO. This should make the painting qualify for Crown copyright which is now expired both in Canada and the UK. De728631 (talk) 15:42, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

It would be great.") And it's clear that they were ordered from photographers to be used as a promotional images of Ministry and Minister.

File:DEU_Rothenstadt_COA.svg

Completely arbitrariness of admin User:Jcb:

  1. Deleted a file (near speedy after 3 min he was pinged) with false reason.
  2. After address him, he declared this CoA file (fully flimsy) as logo, he declared also that the given source/reference is not the same depiction (fully flimsy)[6]
  3. I was blamed to "disturbing the process" {no source} tagging, on removing this tag for the existing DR for exact this reason with exact this edit comment.

For me this all told is absolutely specious reasoning (and so uncivil (one-man show) behaviour for an admin. If I was really pissed off, I would make a report on AN).
PS: it is the exact SVG source of File: Rothenstadt.png. User: Perhelion 00:03, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

I can't see it, but a "no source" tag is for copyright only. It is not appropriate to use that tag to indicate that a COA is fictitious (or has no blazon information) -- that should then always be a regular DR (at best) to see if the community thinks it's not useful for an educational purpose. It is not a copyright violation to have a CoA with no blazon reference, so the tag should not have been used. The lack of blazon source info is at most a scope question and therefore should never be a speedy deletion. (Same for sourcing of data information on maps, graphs, etc.) So... Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion as it appears deletion was out of process, though a regular DR may still be warranted (no real idea there) (valid copyright source provided; appears existing tag was correct; see below). Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:49, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Carl, the fully clear reference with reputation is this (and maybe the only one you can find online). The DR was only a very cynic reaction (awkwardness) from Btr though this situation with "no source" tagging (the admin was aware of this, so he decided ad hominem twice. In fact a reason for an admin admonition).[7]
User: Perhelion 08:52, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - as already explained at my user talk page, this version of the COA is unsourced. Every different presentation of a COA has its own copyright situation. The "source" as given by topic starter points to a different version of the COA. The license only applies if it's a government work, but in this case we don't know, because vital source information is missing. So this is about copyright: the copyright situation is unknown, because the source is missing. Jcb (talk) 15:03, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Was the file marked "own work" ? If so that would be a source, and a "no source" tag is inappropriate. Or are you suspecting that the SVG was extracted from a vector source like a PDF? If so, we would need to identify that source. Much of the time, SVGs are self-drawn by contributors. If that is the case, then a "no source" tag should never be applied -- the contributor probably does own the copyright and can license it. If it's too close to an existing version, such that you feel it has been traced, then we'd need to find that to compare the two. Some countries do disallow copyright on all versions of municipal COAs regardless of the artist, though a self-drawn COA from those countries could still have copyright elsewhere. What was the license tag on this? And was it the original license? Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:41, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
No, and your comments above aren't really on point. We don't require an external source when the uploader is the creator (except, of course, for the issue of scope and conformance with the CoA/blazon description). We do, however, require a source when a particular CoA/blazon is not the work of the uploader, taken from an external source. This, the latter, is presumably the case here as the author entered was "unknown", the source entered was "unknown", and the template was {{PD-Coa-Germany}} (i.e., not self). Presumably that template is true, but COM:EVID and COM:L require a source so confirming. Similarly, if true, a source should be trivially easy to find and should have accompanied this request, instead of the unhelpful and inappropriate comments directed at Jcb. Эlcobbola talk 16:16, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
OK. Hrm. I was assuming this was self-drawn, but if not -- and the PD-Coa-Germany was the license on the original upload, with an unknown source -- then that is fair. We do need to show that the file came from an official source to use that tag, true enough. That is a copyright issue and using the no-source tag would make sense. That is assuming the vectorization was done by a third party -- if done by the uploader, and was just making a version of a coat of arms seen elsewhere, the initial license tag itself was wrong (or at least misleading). When was the file uploaded? I don't even see that in the logs. Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:38, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
02:19, 5 January 2013. INeverCry 03:46, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
No, what Jcb says can't be true and he also says this the first time "to me" (so I had probably unhelpful and inappropriate comments directed).
It doesn't really matter who created the CoA, because they all are PD-Coa-Germany and the Nutzungsrecht - "right of use" and Namensrecht - “legal name” is always by the CoA owner. So I don't understand the logic behind this, what changes the license if the creator is someone other? Also "nur ähnlichen Wiedergabe gegeben"[8] - so even if at only similar reproduction.
Anyway the uploader Btr is probably also the creator (as he said on the given link above). But he don't agree to set own because he assume wrong license calling, because he only redrawn it. So he is definitely right not to have the right to own the Schöpfungshöhe - threshold of originality (which also generally in most cases not exist for CoA in Germany, only for extraordinary depictions). As I said it is helplessness of the user and I'm only the helper in this “game” (actually, this should be the task of admins, but instead they accuse me to be even unhelpful and inappropriate, but Im sorry if this all is a big missunderstanding).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per above. Requester acknowledges that uploader copied a pre-existing work ("he only redrawn it") which means we require a source. This is unambiguous per COM:L. Also unambiguous is that "the burden of proof lies on the uploader or other person arguing for the file to be retained" to provide this sourcing. (COM:EVID). Admins are volunteers like everyone else and have no obligation to do sourcing work for others. Currently there are over 54,000 files tagged as no source; it simply wouldn't be possible. The deletion was proper, and that the requester has devoted time to being "unhelpful and inappropriate" (not an accusation, fact: "absolutely specious reasoning (and so uncivil (one-man show) behaviour for an admin. If I was really pissed off, I would make a report on AN [9]) instead of finding a source is unfortunate. Эlcobbola talk 14:47, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
This is still a bit odd to me. I now do see File:Rothenstadt.png, uploaded by the same user, with a similar license issue, and that was almost certainly generated from the SVG in question. That used to be named Rothenstadt.svg and was uploaded about the same time. User:Btr was both the original uploader, *and* the one who nominated the SVG for deletion for lacking a source (was that after a speedy tag was applied?). That user does not have a large history of SVG work, though there is a little. I do see a virtually identical image here, which is a bit different border but obviously have the same source, although that was uploaded there after the upload here, so it could have been taken from here. Very different version here... can't find much other info, and don't see another obvious source for the uploaded file here. There may be some confusion over the PD-Coa-Germany tag... I read that as being versions from official sources are OK, and anyone can use the design (per other rules), but it may still be that personally-drawn versions can still have a copyright. If the uploader assumed that the law means that *all* versions are not copyright protected, regardless of author, even if they would hold a valid copyright in other countries and just put that tag on it rather than "own" as they were entitled to, that could get us into this situation. If the user feels they drew the SVG but slavish followed an existing bitmap such that there was no additional authorship... OK, but what was the copyright status of the source image they were copying? That is the copyright question here. If that was an official source, the tag may make sense. If not, that's where things get dodgy -- if the original had a copyright, and the SVG author assumed it was inherently PD, that could be an issue. But if they just made their own drawing of an existing official design -- i.e. it was not slavish, just vaguely close -- that would be fine. It's just hard to know, especially when the uploader themselves questions the source. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:32, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
It's odd to me too. As you articulate, there is a myriad of possible scenarios here; the desire (putting aside requirement) for a source is a desire for a reconciliation and explanation. Эlcobbola talk 15:40, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
@Эlcobbola I really don't understand you, I've given the source three times. This file is also the first German CoA ever I see deleted with this reason and I've seen thousands of CoA here.
There are only two possible scenarios: own work or not, in both scenarios the CoA is PD-CoA-Germany. There are no German CoA with copyright tag other than PD (although it would be possible?). So can you (or someone) please explain why the given source is not sufficient?!? And please let us forget all that ad hominem to Jcb to me and Btr, I mean this all is a big missunderstanding. User: Perhelion 00:45, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
Bleah, I should have looked at that source ([10]) again once I saw File:Rothenstadt.png. The SVG is pretty clearly a slavish copy of the CoA in that picture (and that is also the direct source for the ngw.nl picture). So... the question is if there is any copyright to the pictured CoA at that source. If that is an official version (would seem most likely, it is a picture of the CoA on a wall) then it would be PD-CoA-Germany, and the SVG would be PD-ineligible on top of that. Some places, especially the UK, may still consider it separately copyrightable, so it would not hurt to have an explicit license on the vectorization for those jurisdictions). It would be best to note that the SVG was self-drawn after the arms seen in the source photograph. But since this does seem again to be self-drawn by the uploader, I'm back to supporting the undeletion. Still odd that the uploader requested deletion, and I can't really fault the original no-source tag, but that is clearly the graphical source of the SVG. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:49, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
@Perhelion:: Okay, I'm with you now. I hadn't noticed the domain/owner (Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Bildung und Kultus, Wissenschaft und Kunst) of the link you'd provided; I saw the Wappengalarie to the right and the "Mit My Wappen haben wir eine Fotogalerie eingerichtet, in der Sie Ihre Wappenfunde präsentieren können" description and mistook the site for a collection of user images (i.e., unknown origin, status, age, etc.), not something officially affiliated. If HdBG says it's the Rothenstadt CoA, that's good enough to validate {{PD-Coa-Germany}}. Accordingly, I Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion (I would restore myself but for @Jcb:'s remaining opposition above). Danke für deine Geduld. Эlcobbola talk 18:23, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
As a note... it is a photograph of the CoA on a wall (you see a plant at the bottom left). So it's not the photograph source itself we'd care about, just what building the pictured CoA is on -- that would almost certainly be a municipal building. Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:29, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
An assumption that can be made because of the site it is on. Эlcobbola talk 20:33, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
That does help the assumption, yes ;-) If it was a photo on some blog, and they mentioned it was the municipal building, that would be just as good though. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:48, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
(As mentioned in my first post in this discussion), the linked COA is different from the deleted image. At least the colors and the border are different. Jcb (talk) 06:17, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
That is not enough to cause a copyright problem. The file is an SVGification of the CoA at that link; you would not be surprised to see the colors and border slightly different -- those are not that significant in heraldry, and do not cause a copyright issue regardless. You really want to look at the delineations of the castle, the bricks, etc. -- and those are basically slavishly copied. Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:00, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

I, Vami IV, editor, request the undeletion of the above (and non-existant as of 10/2/16) file for the following reasons:

  1. I request permission to use the file from the copyright owner, Marko Tjemmes at Castles.nl via email

  2. The file was uploaded according to the copyright owner's wishes (see above) WITH his permission.
  3. The filename had the names of both the website and the copyright owner (Marko Tjemmes) displayed on the photo's page.

Verärgert muss ich feststellen, dass auch das zweite Bild zur Wiki-Seite "Werner Vordtriede" einfach gelöscht wurde. Es handelt sich um das Bild von 1957.

File:Concept First Capital Connect Thameslink Diagram.PNG

only reason for deletion given was "out of scope" a catch all phrase which really just means a user does not see the use of a file, plenty of other files like this file exist, so there was no considered or genuine reason for this file to be deleted Oxyman (talk) 16:21, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - COM:SCOPE is a policy, not a catch all phrase, with requirements that a given image be "providing knowledge; instructional or informative" and realistically useful for an educational purpose. That one could hypothetically concoct a use ("a user does not see the use of a file") is specifically addressed by COM:NOTUSED, and does not necessarily satisfy the aforementioned requirements. The DR rationale, that this is a concept image for a now-defunct entity, is implicitly that a design that never did, and never will, come to fruition is not likely to be realistically instructional, informative, etc. This is a perfectly valid line of reasoning. There was no considered or genuine rebuttal at the DR (merely reiterating it was a concept, which was not in dispute) or here above (essentially w:WP:OTHERSTUFF - "plenty of other files like this file exist"). Эlcobbola talk 16:43, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm not arguing that COM:SCOPE is not a policy But unfortunately it is used as a catch all phrase by people that just want to delete stuff they personally see no use for. just repeating "COM:SCOPE is a policy" will just increase this inappropriate behavior and does nothing to address the very real problem here. Granted I could have explained that the diagram shows the thought process that was going on at the time, but really I feel it should not always be necessary to go through the rigmarole of explaining everything just because someone has used a catch all phrase. Also if we cannot upload files like others already on Commons then how can we ever know what files to upload,l in reality despite denials that is what does and needs to go on Oxyman (talk) 16:56, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
To the contrary, that is implicitly what you're arguing. Four experienced users (Mattbuck, Jcb, Jim and myself) have indicated this is not in scope, yet that is met by the refrain that "out of scope is a catch all." This is not the response of someone engaging with scope as a policy. Indeed, it's telling that you can't be bothered to explain why it's in scope ("I feel it should not always be necessary to go through the rigmarole of explaining everything"; " it should not be necessary to explaining (sic) this"), but have no problem engaging in soapboxing rants here ("It's no surprise that users stop bothering to upload files.") Those who have the law on their side pound the law. Those with facts pound the facts. Those with nothing pound the table. The last one would be you, complete with the OTHERSTUFF fallacies and assumptions of bad faith ("just because moderators stick together"). Эlcobbola talk 20:34, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
'I'm sorry that is just a personal attack' that takes everything I said out of context and not addressing anyn of my real concerns or points, the reposes I have had in this "discussion" is exactly as i said ,just moderators sticking together that response appearing as it does just after I responded to the other contributer to this argument, it is irrelevant weather you personally like my arguments or me, But I guess it is OK for you to go around making personal attacks. If you cannot refrain from personal attacks then it would be better not to post Oxyman (talk) 20:42, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

It's Ok for you to soapbox and insult and not contribute in a positive way then? You do not have a point just insults Oxyman (talk) 20:54, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As elcobbola says, "other stuff exists" is never a valid reason for anything -- I'm sure that at least 1% of Commons files -- more than 300,000 -- should be deleted for one reason or another. If this is a drawing taken from an official version of the concept, then it is a DW and therefore a copyvio. If it is something that the uploader made up from scratch -- which is what is claimed in the file description -- then it is simply a non-official person's idea of what the train might have looked like. That has no educational value, so either this is a copyvio or is out of scope and, either way, it should not be restored. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:58, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Sorry but just repeating another users arguments is not an answer, if there is no precedent here for files then there would be no rational for any files to be kept, I find the concepts surrounding an eventual decision to be educational, it should not be necessary to explaining this just because moderators stick together, as can be shown above. It's no surprise that users stop bothering to upload files here as after all we need to delete at least 1% of Commons files with no real consideration. Oxyman (talk) 17:06, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
You have not responded to my fundamental concern -- either this is a DW and therefore a copyvio or it was created out of the uploader's imagination and is therefore not useful. Put another way, if it is close enough to an actual drawing of the train created by the people working on the project to be useful, then it is a copyvio. If it is not a copyvio, then it is not useful. This is a frequent Catch 22 with this kind of work and there is no easy way around it.
As for "It's no surprise that users stop bothering to upload files here", we actually get about 10,000 new files every day. We delete around 1,700 files every day, but you're dreaming if you believe that we actually catch all of the files that should be deleted. I guess at 1% -- I wouldn't be surprised if it were much higher. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:51, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Neither have you responded my fundamental concern -- so I' repeat the relevant lines "just repeating another users arguments is not an answer, if there is no precedent here for files then there would be no rational for any files to be kept," "I'm not arguing that COM:SCOPE is not a policy But unfortunately it is used as a catch all phrase by people that just want to delete stuff" There never was a prevention on uploading own work, or own concepts which can be useful. You are claiming it could be like another piece of artwork so could be a copyvio, that is a large and unreasonable leap which is just an argument made up as yourself see no use of the file (you certainly don't provide any evidence of the supposed copied source), also it must be deleted as you estimate 1% of all files should be deleated. These are not considered reasons just argument fodder. Also I'm not arguing that less files are being uploaded so your statistics are irrelevant, more that individual uploaders contributing valuable own work are not bothering to upload files rather then mass bot uploads from other sources.

Re nominating in the hope that we can have a discussion without personal attacks as happened before and without just admins sticking together as they are experienced and apparently anyone who disagrees with them is inexperienced. I hope a genuine discussion this time can be had Oxyman (talk) 10:53, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

edit conflict
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, I object to "we can have a discussion without personal attacks as happened before and without just admins sticking together". The discussion included four highly experienced Admins. Most requests here close with only one or two editors involved. We often agree, but certainly never "stick together" in any sense of that -- we disagree when appropriate. Also, there were no personal attacks in the previous discussion. There was certainly frustration at Oxyman's repeating the same thing, but no one said anything personal about him or her.
Second, I will for a third time state the obvious, which Oxyman has not at all addressed. This is an "own work" drawing by a person who has no known connection to the project illustrated. If it is copied from material that was generated by the FCC Thameslink project, then it is a derivative work and therefore a copyvio and cannot be kept here without a license from the original designer. On the other hand, if it is not a close copy of the FCC Thameslink design, then it is not educational because it cannot be used in an article on the FCC Thameslink project or anything else. How would you caption it -- "Drawing showing what an unknown person thinks this train might look like"?
There may be some confusion here because the uploader, User:Unisouth~commonswiki, has contributed some very good drawings of existing rail equipment (e.g File:Class 165 First Great Western Diagram.PNG. Drawings of existing equipment are a valuable addition to Commons and to WP:EN -- they are not copyvios because they are drawn from actual equipment which does not have a copyright. They are useful, because they show what the actual equipment looks like in various liveries. In contrast, the subject drawing must either be copied from a copyrighted drawing -- which might make it useful, but also a copyvio, or it's Unisouth's imagination, in which case it is not a copyvio, but also not useful. .     Jim . . . .

Files uploaded by Xerxessenior

These files have been deleted per Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Xerxessenior:

The nominator said the first two images "have two different cameras". Today, most people have a cell phone, which typically has a camera, and a digital camera. It's not a surprise to have two different cameras at all. Nevertheless, this user has uploaded some of his files locally on Persian and German Wikipedias. Take a look at the metadata of the following files:

Nokia E72-1: fa:File:Hashiyeneshinan Frankfurt.jpg and fa:File:Gushtkub 1.jpg

Pentax Optio M10: fa:File:Darolfonun WikiFa 1.jpg, fa:File:Mobile Foghetakhassos 1 1.jpg, fa:File:Sarv-Harzevil-GLB-2012.jpg, and de:Datei:Chemical warfare warningboard iran.jpg

The last file is uploaded on the German Wikipedia. If you look at his SUL, you will see that he has 93 contributions on German Wikipedia and can speak German fluently. fa:File:Hashiyeneshinan Frankfurt.jpg shows some homeless people in Frankfurt, so I can personally believe that this user lives in Germany and File:Aldi empty leer.jpg and File:Zip trafic 1.jpg are his own work.

File:Shaban Jafari Tudehiha.jpg is clearly a scrap of an old Iranian newspaper so we can make sure that the image has been published before (i.e., not been in a private collection). Article 16 of the Iranian copyright law (the 3rd item in {{PD-Iran}}) stipulates that all photographic works fall into public domain after 30 years of publication date. The image is about the w:1953 Iranian coup d'état.

File:Shaban Jafari Kotak.jpg: I talked with the user on Persian Wikipedia about this image, which is also about the 1953 Iranian coup. He claims that this image has been taken from an old Iranian magazine published in 1953. He currently cannot prove his claim because the magazine belonged to one of his former friends. I do believe his honesty and integrity based on our mutual cooperation on Persian Wikipedia.

The decision about the last image is up to you but I think the first three images can be restored safely. 4nn1l2 (talk) 18:41, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Were File:Aldi empty leer.jpg and File:Zip trafic 1.jpg in use? These seem like random cell phone pictures with no genuine educational value. How are they in COM:SCOPE? Эlcobbola talk 00:48, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
File:Zip trafic 1.jpg is about w:Merge (traffic). It was used in a Persian Wikipedia article. I have not seen File:Aldi empty leer.jpg personally but the uploader claims this is a picture about an empty chain supermarket in Germany, called w:Aldi. It was also used in a Persian Wikipedia article. 4nn1l2 (talk) 05:05, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose File:Zip trafic 1.jpg, File:Shaban Jafari Tudehiha.jpg and File:Shaban Jafari Kotak.jpg; Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral on File:Aldi empty leer.jpg. The Aldi and Zip images were added to fa.wiki articles by the uploader ([11] [12]), so their use ceteris paribus is not supportive of scope. The Zip image is terrible quality, including with poorly censored number plates, and is from a vantage that doesn't really illustrate the zipper merge; thus I don't think it's in Scope. For the other "self" image, if we need a image of Aldi shelves that need restocking, so be it. As for File:Zip trafic 1.jpg and File:Shaban Jafari Tudehiha.jpg, we require a source. "He claims that this image has been taken from an old Iranian magazine published in 1953. He currently cannot prove his claim because the magazine belonged to one of his former friends" (emphasis mine - !!!) is not acceptable. COM:L requires source "information sufficient for others to verify the license status"; we cannot say to re-users of our content "you will need to find a friend of a friend of Xerxessenior to verify the PD claim." The images are not of the full publication, so there is no way to verify date or jurisdiction (for example, Persian is also spoken in Afghanistan, Iraq, Russia, Azerbaijan, and elsewhere.) Certainly the aforementioned claim is believed and not meant to deceive, but people can misremember and make honest mistakes which is precisely why COM:L and COM:EVID require verifiable sourcing. Эlcobbola talk 17:12, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
COM:INUSE states that "It should be stressed that Commons does not exist to editorialise on other projects – that an image is in use on a non talk/user page is enough for it to be within scope." I do not see any mention to "ceteris paribus" in the policy page. He added the pictures and the Persian Wikipedia community decided to keep them. One way to build consensus is through editing (en:WP:EDITCONSENSUS). If nobody objects, a new consensus has been reached. And nobody objected. We had used the Zip image to illustrate this traffic method in high speeds. If you still disagree, I am more than happy to continue this discussion on Persian Wikipedia, not here.
Regarding the Iranian coup pictures, what kind of source should he provide? Does it suffice to name the magazines? He knows the name of magazines and their publication year: fa:خواندنیها (de:Khandaniha) and fa:تهران مصور both in 1953. These magazines were published in Iran. They stopped being published after the w:1979 Iranian Revolution (37 years ago) so their content is definitely in the public domain. 4nn1l2 (talk) 19:56, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

(I don't think it does, but googling the headline or a line from the article could bring up a google result with more info. Tried that, 4nn1l2? Re. INUSE: were the images not removed from the articles after they were deleted here?--Elvey (talk) 02:48, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

 Not done This has been open for over a month and it is time it is resolved. It is clear that the uploader has a misunderstanding of "own work" -- at the DR he said "is definitely my own work!" of two files that were scanned from an old publication. That therefore raises the question of whether the other images are actually his own work. User:4nn1l2 comments, "Today, most people have a cell phone, which typically has a camera, and a digital camera." However, these two images were taken with two different cell phones -- that is still possible, but certainly raises a significant doubt, which is our standard of proof. Also, as Эlcobbola has pointed out, the Zip traffic image does not really show zip traffic, has a slanted horizon, and is very hazy gray. It also has a watermark which I can't read, but further raises questions about the source.

Although the two scans from the past are likely PD-Iran, our standard of proof is "beyond a significant doubt", not "likely" and without the name and date of the publication, we cannot keep them. Since the uploader does not know even that most basic information, we must question whether he knows the subject matter or even where the publication originated. .     Jim . . . .

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is a wonderful portrait photograph. It is so good that I must express my doubts that is actually a selfie. It would have to be taken with a self timer (both hands are in the image) and it just doesn't look it. I also note that it is small, much smaller than an iPad image and has no EXIF metadata, both of which are hallmarks of an image pulled from the Web.
The easiest way to prove that it is your image is for you to upload, with a new file name, the full size iPad image with its EXIF and post that file name here. After we examine it, it could be deleted. Alternately, you could send a free license to OTRS from an address at sarahjanepell.com. That will, as I noted at my reply to your comment on my talk page, take much longer.
I know this may be a nuisance, but, unfortunately, we do have fans or vandals who claim to be notable people and post images here without permission. User:Bendinghorizons could be anyone. Therefore we are fairly careful in accepting images that do not appear to be "own work". .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:58, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

I see no reason why this image is not copyrighted -- almost every created work has a copyright. There are few exceptions and none of them apply here.

297th MI BN DUI.svg

File:297th_MI_BN_DUI.svg

File should be undeleted because it was deleted "for copyright vio" but no further reason was given. It is a vectorized version of the PNG that is still on commons, which was a work done by an employee of the United States Army while performing his duties (specifically, me). Furthermore, I am unsure as to why there was no message left on my talk page. I believe the image was originally moved here from Wikipedia, and am unsure how the author/source transferred. I would have been more than happy to correct any errors in PD tags if there was a need for it. HiB2Bornot2B (talk) 15:46, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Ellin, you deleted this. Am I missing something -- it appears to be OK.
HiB2Bornot2B, is your Army job specifically heraldry? If not, I don't think this qualifies as having been done by a Federal employee. Of course, it can still be freely licensed by you. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:15, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
I redrew this based based on a raster file we worked with in the 297th MI BN, while I performed duties as the Secretary to the Battalion Commander. The rendering in scale and design is based on the actual Distinctive Unit Insignia worn by members of that unit. I would have no problem releasing it into the PD as the author, either; this is especially true since I was under the belief that the file was already PD. HiB2Bornot2B (talk) 23:31, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support If you did the SVG as part of your official duties, it would be PD-USGov, but if you did it in your spare time for yourself, you could own some copyright. Obviously, the base graphic is PD-USGov from the sounds of it, even if different from the IOH one. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:56, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
  • The Institute of Heldery gives the official description and an example CoA. The question, then, is whether this particular depiction of the CoA was copied from a pre-existing work. This deleted version (or the png on which it was based) differs meaningfully from the IOH version: notice lines on the gauntlet, outline of the sword, ribbing of the hilt, etc., which may suggest independent creation; remember, even "if two authors created works that are similar or even identical, each work could be registered provided that the authors did not copy expression from each other." (Compendium Of U.S. Copyright Office Practices 313.4(A)) So, HiB2Bornot2B, did you draw this CoA based on the description or on an existing CoA? Эlcobbola talk 19:44, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

There is a statement "I redrew the original" but there's no indication where that original is located. One would assume that the person doing the redrawing would have had access to that information. Jcb sent it to no source, and since this image has no source, I deleted it. Ellin Beltz (talk) 21:40, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Ellin and Johan, I don't see what the problem is here. The image is authentic -- the badge appears at the WP article 297th Military Intelligence Battalion (United States) and at the appropriate place at The Army Institute of Heraldry web site.

It was drawn by an Army employee in the course of his work and is identical, except for format, to File:297th mi bn dui.png, the PNG version drawn by the same uploader.

I agree that the "Source = " line in the file description is blank, but it could be any of a number of things -- "Own work", "redraw of File:297th mi bn dui.png", or "The Army Institute of Heraldry", although that's a jpeg. Can't we just restore the file and close this, adding "own work" as the source? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:31, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

  • All it would have taken to fix this was to put that link for the Heraldry file as source with the comment about the redraw. At the time we went through this initially, there was no source. Some wee abbreviation is wonderful, but it's not how you find the image on the TAIoH, not everyone is a military heraldry expert. I would think someone redrawing an image would have no trouble providing the source to the image from which they were drawing. Most people just automatically do that. I have restored the file. I added a full description to it when previously it had none. I changed "SVG format of the 297th MI BN DUI" from shorthand to actually what the unit is so that search engines have a chance of finding it. I have removed the no source tag and added a proper description and a link to the TAIoH page as well as "other versions" link to the png. I have also appended all the appropriate information to File:297th mi bn dui.png which was also "no source" because of "no infobox template". Both files are fixed and problems solved, is there anything else? Please forgive my sluggish response in last five days I had a massive prescription antibiotic reaction and was not always capable of sitting, typing, forming a coherent sentence or being awake.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a mess. Neither the comments above nor at the DR addressed the concern over which this was ultimately deleted: COM:CSCR. Whether photography is allowed in the polling place, whether the woman is an official, and whether it is a "real picture from real event" are irrelevant considerations. That said, COM:CSCR is implicitly an offshoot of COM:NCR, which are issues and considerations germane to those who choose to use Commons' content, but not necessarily to the Commons as a mere host. Thus, deletion for CSCR reasons may be questionable, or at least would certainly benefit from more discussion on how this law would apply to us. That said, this is simply not in scope. This is a non-notable, junior official sitting in an unremarkable room (i.e., no indication it's related to an election--let alone a specific election--or to polling but for the written description) talking on her mobile. Although one of the DR participants added it to an election article in response to the DR, COM:SCOPE requires files be legitimately in use; that addition strains credulity and has an air of gaming the system (although, to be clear, I have no doubt the person was acting on a good faith, albeit misguided, belief that retaining the image would be helpful to the project). Frankly, that use is (was) somewhat akin to illustrating the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II with a picture of a constable having a chat in a back pew at Westminster Abbey: no realistic educational value or use. Эlcobbola talk 14:25, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
    • А вам не приходило в голову откуда я знаю, что даму зовут Арина Прунь? Она довольно публичное лицо в городе, занимается связями с общественностью. [Текст], [Видео], [Фото]. Если собрать все видео на местных телеканалах, выйдут не одни сутки с её участием, это не Опра, конечно, но более известная личность, чем 90% людей так или иначе промелькнувших на Викискладе и надо отметить, что её карьера сейчас на пике.

      • That a name shows up in Google searches does not speak to notability, and is not the threshold; non-trivial third party coverage focused specifically on the person is. As an easy example, one could search for a local (i.e. a given metro area) news correspondent and indeed find appearances on camera and the name in print. That is not notability. Here, that is well evidenced by the fact that the image was dumped into an election article instead of an article on her. None of our sister projects, including ru.wiki, have a page on her, which seems quite telling. This, of course, also does not address the CSCR issue for which the image was actually deleted.

The photography was also publshed in the Bulletin "Le Houx - special edition 1937 - Provost de la Fardinière - Sa Vie - Son Oeuvre" (Editor Heny Mallez - Cambrai - France); it is also the official photography when Henri Provost de la Fardinière was a Deputy at the Franch Parliament in 1936. That's why I consider that the photography has its place with the notice dedicated to its author. Histoavranches (talk) 09:45, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are two copyrights here. The first is for the photograph. Since it is signed, and therefore not anonymous, it does not become PD until 70 years after the death of the photographer. 1936 is far too recent to assume that the photographer died before 70 years ago. The second copyright is for the text at the bottom. If it can be shown that Henri Provost de la Fardinière wrote it, then it is PD, as he died in 1937, but that has not been proven either. In order to restore this, we therefore need both the death date of the photographer (or a license from his heirs) and knowledge of who wrote the text at the bottom and when he died. .     Jim . . . .

File:Zabern Leutnant von Forstner.PNG

This picture, extracted from a group photo taken in 1913, was first published in Moderne Illustrierte Wochenschrift of 11 December 1913, with no attribution.

That is 103 years ago. There is a high chance that the anonymous army photographer who took it is now dead by more of 70 years.

For this reason, I ask for undeletion. --Catarella (talk) 19:24, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

However, my closing comment at the cited DR was, ""Unknown" does not mean "anonymous". It is up to anyone who wants to keep this to show that work was originally published anonymously." Now that we know when and where it was published, I think it can be restored. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:53, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Jim. To be very honest, there seems to be an earlier publication: L'Illustration, Nr. 3691, page 385, 22 November 1913, Paris. As this transcript shows, it seems to be anonymous too: http://www.loyalbooks.com/download/text/Lillustration-no-3691-22-Novembre-1913.txt . I cannot strictly guarantee there is not an even earlier publication. The first press article on the subject is on 6 November, 16 days before.
But common sense suggests that this photograph has been taken by some army photographer as part as his regular duty and that History has completely lost track of that person. The original group photo is reproduced here : de:Datei:Zabern IR 99 5. Komp Jg. 1911-13 Vollbild.PNG.
I apologize for the first above, it was inaccurate. --Catarella (talk) 20:08, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
For EU countries, the copyright term is generally based on the life of the human author, if identified, even if the company owns that copyright. If history has lost track of that person, that is what is known as an "orphan work" and there is no legal way to host those, unless it gets old enough to assume any author has died more than 70 years ago (there is no hard and fast rule, but at some point we will assume that -- but certainly not for things only 100 years old). There is awareness of the orphan work problem but most countries have not tried to find a way to address it, and there is no common sense that can be used in that area (other than 120-140 year old works). For the "anonymous" terms to hold, we really need to show the original publication was in fact anonymous, and not just that the name has been lost. If there is a separate term for government works (some countries but not all), that could make a difference too -- but for this type of work, neither France nor Germany has such terms.

File:363rdaew.jpg, File:37 SFS.jpg and the precedent for previously listed USAF emblems

Refer to sources found by a very simple Google image search at:

It seems reasonable to keep all USAF patches as public domain, so long as there are no assertions that they are fantasy or fake, on the basis that designs for USAF units are created and used by military personnel during their employment by the DoD.

These two images were deleted by Ellin Beltz along with many other USAF emblems after mass tagging by Jcb. Undeletion was originally rejected after being requested by Lineagegeek, later some of the images made available to me via dropbox, though without the image page texts. Refer to User_talk:Ellin_Beltz/Archive_5#Deleting_emblems_of_United_States_Air_Force_emblems.

As I would like to avoid documenting searches and links off-wiki when I do not have access to the images on Commons or the image page texts, rather than documenting them on-wiki in a deletion request, I suggest these, and the rest at https://www.flickr.com/photos/wikimediacommons/albums/72157675101001356, are considered as a case precedent for undeletions without prejudice for any future reasonable nomination under a deletion request. I further propose that future deletions of USAF emblems are recommended to go via a deletion request rather than being speedy deleted after being tagged as unsourced or unlicensed, for all the reasons put forth in past discussions as to why this is poor practice for Wikimedia Commons' mission to preserve public domain educational media uploaded in good faith. Obviously this excludes cases of bad faith uploads by known flickr washing accounts etc. -- (talk) 11:15, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

This discussion has taken place at several locations in the past months, leading to no other point of view by experienced admins like INeverCry, Ellin Beltz and myself. Deleted files can be undeleted if a valid source is provided to show that they are genuine USAF works. The license is only valid if USAF is the true author. The obligation to add adequat source information has not been absent for the past decade, so I don't understand what could be unclear about this situation. Please stop forum shopping about this subject. Jcb (talk) 11:24, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

@Jcb: seems to missing the entire point again. The objection is not just to removing PD documents of this type, it is the process used to delete them without giving notice that would permit other editors to determine a valid source. A significant number of the removed USAF emblem images were moved to commons from en|Wikipedia by User:MGA73bot2 or related versions. This bot positions source information in the wrong place, leaving it blank on the appropriate place on the commons template. An additional problem with emblems moved in this manner is that the source information is sometimes truncated. Images moved in this manner require more care than tagging them for speedy removal. --Lineagegeek (talk) 12:10, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Ajaz Khan at Karim Morani's birthday bash.jpg and File:Ajaz Khan at Baba Siddique's Iftaar party.jpg

The problematic Bollywood Hungama administrators had changed the layout of their website on 21 September 2016, which led to the deletion/automatic removal of some images from their own website uploaded before 21 September 2016. Take these examples: File:Neha Dhupia at the launch of Costa's 100 store 08.jpg and File:Lisa Haydon at Ekta Kapoor's Iftaar party for 'Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!'.jpg. These files were reviewed. This means that these images were available on their website before 21 September 2016 and got deleted/autotically removed after 21 September 2016, when Bollywood Hungama changed their website. Now the source link of these images have gone dead. I'd discussed the issue with INeverCry on User talk:INeverCry#Bollywood Hungama files to solve the issue, but he said me to discuss it here, so I'm here. I know that the license of an image can't be passed unless and until the uploader mentions the correct source link to the file. But what can we do when the images from Bollywood Hungama have been removed. I've even searched the title of the deleted images on their website, but failed. To pass the license of the files, what you can do is that check the Bollywood Hungama watermark on the images. If they contain, this means that the image owner is 100% Bollywood Hungama. If there is no watermark, don't pass. And in this case, I'm 100% sure that these two images contain the Bollywood Hungama watermark. Please try to understand.

"These do not include works first published by the United Nations"... Thuresson (talk) 11:01, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
@Sanandros: 17 U.S. Code § 104 (b) "The works specified by sections 102 and 103, when published, are subject to protection under this title if — (5) the work is first published by the United Nations or any of its specialized agencies, or by the Organization of American States." The UN is not a sovereign government, and it's resolutions are not 'laws'. Reventtalk 03:19, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
@Revent: Sry but the UN is not the author of the resolutions. They are done by the representatives of the governments. So it's basically the same process as if the governments would decide for an international treaty. The Term "publish" is here not exact enough as I also can publish any act but you still can not determine the copyright status solely by the publisher. I think every thing is written in Bowett's law of international institutions but I'm not sure as I don't have that book and I also can't access that book right now. But even the State Department is publishing resolutions but don't indicate any copyright.--Sanandros (talk) 06:44, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
@Sanandros: In the 'special' case of works first published by the UN or the OAS, you 'can' in fact determine the copyright status solely by the publisher. It is an exception, and it exists because US law specifically says so. Works first published by the UN or the OAS are copyrighted in the United States, regardless of authorship. The relevant word is 'first. It does not matter, at all, if the State Department notes that a copyright exists or not.
The Security Council resolution you linked is, in fact, not protected by copyright, but it's not for the reason you state. It's unprotected because it was published by the UN under document number S/RES/1624 (2005), and the UN specifically states in ST/AI/189/Add.9/Rev.2 that they will not seek protection for "written material officially issued under a United Nations document symbol". The situation is more like a 'public domain dedication' of copyrighted material, but it's still copyrighted, because US law says so, explicitly. Reventtalk 07:04, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

@JuTa: (nods) I'm not faulting you for that, just making sure you are okay with undeletion given the discussion. The deletions were 'legitimate' given the information provided at the time. Reventtalk 20:23, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Works initially published by the United Nations are subjects of copyright protection... this is explicit in US law. However, the United Nations 'historically' sought such protection for very few works, in the days in which formalities were still required, and has maintained an official, and 'explicit', policy of 'leaving certain works in the public domain', and not seeking protection for them, for over thirty years now. That resolutions of the Security Council ("written material officially issued under a United Nations document symbol, regardless of the form of production") fall within the scope of this policy of not seeking copyright protection seems quite obvious, and does not appear to be a matter of disagreement. The UN does not appear to have ever attempted to protect such material, in it's entire history.

The UN also issues, and sells, annual volumes of the complied resolutions, with supporting material. Those publications are 'not' in the public domain; though they incorporate material that the UN does not seek to protect, they also include material that is copyrighted. It is merely the actual resolutions themselves, as issued by the UN under a document symbol and a UN masthead, that I have undeleted here... there has clearly been much other material uploaded to Commons, over time, to which this does not apply... my 'closure' here is just, specifically, about the SC resolutions, as clearly falling under a specific point of the UN's administrative policy.

The UN's policy of not seeking protection for certain works is not a formal license, and is not 'irrevocable'.... however, it is explicit, long standing, and provided with a clear rationale. The likelihood of the UN ever changing this policy, at least for the 'subset' of SC resolutions, seems exceedingly minimal. If this does ever occur in the future, the status of these works can and should be revisited, but while that policy remains in affect there seems to be a consensus to keep these documents on both Commons and Wikisource, as 'public domain'.

File:Sanki_King_portrait.jpg

Deletion request for the image Sanki_King_portrait.jpg was posted by User: Ruff tuff cream (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Sanki_King_portrait.jpg) and his comment was that the metadata shows the author as "Taha" and copyright holder as "amr and trk photography". The photographer Taha signs all of his emails as "Taha Rizwan Khan https://www.facebook.com/photography.taha.mohsee", where TRK stands for Taha Rizwan Khan, it should be no riddle. I have also taken a copy of the email that was sent to wikimedia from the photographer himself and the email clearly shows the photographer's signature there. I previously uploaded this image, taken with permission from Mr. Sanki King's team, whose managing team emailed wikimedia with the permission but some Robert Bruce insisted that the photographer and Sanki King email wikimedia commons personally, even though Sanki's managing team clearly explained that the portrait was a part of a paid photoshoot and Sanki King had the rights of all those images and since the team who represents Sanki King had given permission for the image to be used, why were personal permissions required?

Robert Bruce still insisted for personal permissions but the photographers and Mr. Sanki couldn't email wikimedia commons in time and the portrait, along with another image of Sanki King and his work, were deleted. After that I took permission from Sanki King's team, and the photographers of both the images a few days ago and I re-uploaded the images as my own work. Emails of transfer of copyrights of these images have already been sent to wikimedia commons by both photographers & myself. The other image is https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solitude_WIP.jpg. Now please tell me why was the image deleted in such a hurry and with no research when a signed email by the photographer was sent to wikimedia commons? Ticket numbers: Ticket#2016092310000866 and Ticket#2016092310000866, and I also haven't received any reply from Commons as yet, its been 2 weeks.

The photographer is a part of a duo, AMR & TRK, first person is Mohsee, second is Taha. The name of the author on the image was Taha, as Ruff puff said, and the copyright holder was AMR & TRK Photography, please pay attention to the facebook link of their page if you will "www.facebook.com/photography.taha.mohsee". His full name was in the email and first name is in the link of their page. Most importantly, the file was deleted without any discussion with the uploader. It was nominated for deletion but it was deleted just like that by User: INeverCry. Now please tell me will I have to reupload the image on wikimedia or will the deletion be undone? Looking forward to a prompt reply. Cheers

The OTRS tickets you name are only a little over a week old. When they are read and approved by a human, the file will be restored without further action on your part.
Note that most of what you have described above simply slowed down our work. The copyright to commissioned portraits routinely rests with the photographer. We require a free license directly from the photographer because we, unfortunately, have users who are perfectly willing to forge license e-mails if given the chance.
Note also that the file was deleted on sight because you, SameStruggle, claimed that the file was your "own work" when that was clearly not the case. Incorrectly claiming that you created a file is a violation of our rules and, as noted above, simply slows everything down. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:53, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
As Jim says, I speedy deleted the file per COM:DR because it appeared to be an obvious copyvio and not own work as was stated. INeverCry (talk) 20:38, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
The file was uploaded as "own work" because the copyright holders of both the images transferred the copyrights to me because the process of permissions was too confusing for them. As I mentioned above, the images had been already deleted once before, even though legit permission emails were sent to Commons by Sanki King's managers who clearly stated that they owned the rights to those images but that was ignored by one of your volunteers Robert Bruce who insisted that individual permissions should be sent to him which the artist and the photographers failed to do so due to their busy schedules. That's why this time they wanted me to look after it by myself, hence they gave me the rights to the images. After the images were uploaded, the ticket numbers were sent to the photographers, Taha Rizwan Khan & Abid Merchant, and both of them then emailed Commons that they had forwarded the rights of the images to me. The ticket numbers are mentioned above, whoever has the access to the Commons emails, ask them to verify this. INeverCry deleted the images without discussion and he also doesn't have access to Commons emails as he told me on his talk page earlier, so he didn't even know that the copyrights of the images had been transferred to me. So I believe this was all done pretty quickly based on assumptions and without any serious inquiries even though both the photographers and I did what we were required to do. SameStruggle (talk) 06:46, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
Files with sufficient OTRS permission are usually tagged with an OTRS ticket by an OTRS member. Commons is run by volunteers, so you have only a small number of enthusiastic people like myself and those above who are dealing with a large number of files and editors. I deleted this believing I was taking the proper action. If I was mistaken or anyone else involved was, COM:UDEL is here for review of deletions and the setting right of such errors. lNeverCry 06:56, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
Please don't persist in trying to lay blame at the feet of the several volunteers who have worked on this. The entire situation was created by you and your colleagues who made incorrect claims and failed to follow Commons rules. We receive around 10,000 new images every day and must delete around 1,700 of them. Ten of us do around 75% of that work, led by INC. When we see an image that is obviously a copyright violation -- not "own work" as claimed -- our policy requires immediate deletion, see Commons:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#File #1. We all wish that we had the human resources to give more personal attention to things, but as it is, we can barely stay ahead of the deluge. Editors like yourselves can help by simply following the rules.
When an OTRS volunteer gets to the tickets you named, probably in several weeks, he or she will examine the license and its source. If it is approved, the files will be restored without further action on your part. If it is not approved, the volunteer will tell the photographer why it was rejected. Until then, there is nothing you can do. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:14, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Elsa_Peretti.jpg A complete legal license is available upon request.

I am writing in the name of Ms Elsa Peretti regarding the deletion of her profile photo. That photo was chosen by her personally, and was made by Ms Carola Polakov. The photo "Elsa_Peretti.jpg" has been uploaded after Ms Peretti's lawyers received a signed legal license grant from the author, Ms Polakov. The photo was proposed for deletion from user "Ebaybe" who clearly has some kind of personal dislike for the page or the subject matter. I had clearly written in the deletion request page (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Elsa_Peretti.jpg) that the photo had the appropriate legal license, but received no answer. I tried contacting user "Ebaybe" but received no answer.

Please know that this issue is being followed by Ms Peretti's lawyers who kindly request an answer as to why the photo was deleted. Best regards,

The Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation (webmaster) --NPF-webmaster (talk) 13:21, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Since user accounts are essentially anonymous, we are rather careful about works previously published on the Internet -- we get hundreds if not thousands of copyright violations copied off the net uploaded every day. For such works, we have a separate process where the licensing can be confirmed -- Commons:OTRS. The deleting administrator linked to that policy, though it was a bit terse. With that process, a private email is sent (from the copyright holder) indicating the file and the approved license. Be aware that the photo must be licensed for everyone, not just Wikipedia, and must allow commercial use. You can provide any necessary documentation in that email. If Ms Polakov's license did not allow you to further sublicense the work (to everyone) along those terms, then Ms Polakov may need to send that email directly (as it sounds like she is still the copyright holder). Once the OTRS request has been processed (which can take a little while; they are understaffed) then the file will be undeleted. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:41, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agreed. We get about 10,000 new images every day. About 1,700 of them must be deleted. As Carl says, we frequently have uploaders claim that they have permission to use an image -- those claims often turn out to be incorrect. Therefore we have a strict policy that unless an image is (a) own work, (b) in the public domain for some clearly explained reason, or (c) taken from a source that has a clearly stated and fully acceptable license, then the actual copyright holder, usually the photographer, must send a free license to OTRS. The accusation that "user "Ebaybe" [snip] clearly has some kind of personal dislike for the page or the subject matter" is ridiculous -- first, the correct name is User:Ebyabe and second, we are very neutral here. Volunteers like Ebyabe, with over 100,000 contributions to Commons, simply take their work as it comes -- we don't have time to look for things we don't like.
So, please have Ms Polakov send a free license directly to OTRS. When that is received and approved, the image will be restored without further action on your part. Please note that OTRS, like Commons, is all volunteers, and, also like Commons, is badly understaffed, so it may be several weeks, or even a month before the image is restored. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:06, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
I (Ebyabe) have nothing personal against Ms. Peretti. I don't know enough about her to have an opinion one way or another. I can't even remember quite how the article got my initial attention. However, it has become a rather non-neutral article, serving more as a promotional advertisement for her than an encyclopaedic article.
Regarding the image, a quick Google search finds it at a number of different websites. I only included one, but it looked very much like a copy violation. An admin agreed and deleted it. The easiest way to solve this would be for a picture be taken of her by the webmaster or someone else and submitted. That shouldn't be that hard, right? One of her lawyers could do it, and make sure it had the appropriate licensing. Problem solved.
Speaking of lawyers, saying that hers are following this issue could be construed as legal intimidation, which is not countenanced on Wikipedia. See No Legal Threats for further information. --Ebyabe (talk) 05:43, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
The photo was chosen specifically by Ms Peretti. The author Ms Polakov provided Ms Peretti with a proper license. The file was uploaded to wikipedia commons following the correct procedure. There shall be no further actions on the part of Ms Peretti regarding this issue. It is truly unfortunate that Wikipedia users are unable to benefit from quality material such as this photo. --NPF-webmaster (talk) 15:47, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

 Not done: Per Jim and Ebyabe.

Seems that this user has been not tagging their pictures very well, not using {{own}} and attributing authorship to their real (?) name while editing from an alt account (they seem to have several). See [17]. It is likely this image was deleted due to no permission/author when in fact is self-authored by uploader. If this can be verified, it could be restored. Also, this user seems to have uploaded hundreds of images, mostly through Commonist, all of which could use some bot tagging them as own. For a number they used "Photo personnelle". I'll ping User:Green Giant who did some fixes on some of that user's images, adding own, and User:Jcb who recently tagged several images as missing permission (which they weren't, their description was just a bit messed up).

Those two files have been deleted by Jameslwoodward but many users believe he has miinterpertated our policy. See here for the current debate. Jim believes the files should stay deleted because personality rights prohibit commercial use and the others believe that this is not a reason to delete an image since the policy states: In this context "commercial use" is purely {{Personality rights}}, and thus never a reason for deletion Natuur12 (talk) 12:38, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It may well be true that the Austrian rule is that a personal image in a public place may be used commercially -- for example, in a textbook, but our current summary of the Austrian law at Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements#Austria very clearly contradicts that. It says:

"Commercial use of a published picture of a person in a public space: Requires consent".

Natuur12, could you give a cite for the quote above -- I don't see it at the summary? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:34, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Aha. The quote appears in the footnote to the summary table at Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements. I have two thoughts, first, that's a useless column, then, because nowhere can an image be used in advertising without the consent of the subject. Second, the specific always overrules the general. In this case, a footnote that applies to every country cannot overrule a specific statement that applies only to Austria. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:40, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Just to clarify -- there are two very different meanings for "commercial use". The first is Coca-Cola showing a photo of me captioned "Jim likes Coke". That's true, but they can't do it without my explicit written consent. The subject's consent is required for advertising uses everywhere in the world.

The second use of the term describes printing a picture of me in a book, magazine article, or on a Web site. As long as the image was taken in public in the USA or another free-use country, and as long as the context does not reflect badly on me, I have no right to prevent it.

Because the first use of the term is true everywhere, it does not concern us. If we prohibited all images that could not be used in advertising, we would have no images of people and of many other things. Therefore, when we discuss "commercial use", we mean the second meaning of the term. That is what the last column in the summary should refer to -- never to the first use of the term. However, the last column at the moment is inconsistently applied and should not be trusted. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:51, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per the current policy. I had seen the discussion in Jim's page and refer the policy page several times sine last week. I agree the wording are bit vague (eg: "Therefore it is strongly recommended[14][15] to obtain permission from the person depicted in the photograph, unless their appearance is merely accidental and not incriminating or it is a Person des öffentlichen Lebens (public figure).") This types of vagueness lead us to COM:PRP which advises a deletion. Jee 13:53, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

With all due respect but surely Prof. Mag. Ingomar Mattitsch is enough of a public figure and surely the same applies to Dr. Wilhelm Deuer. Natuur12 (talk) 14:15, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Striking off the oppose if subject is a public figure. But I'm not agreeing with the below arguments that we can neglect COM:CSCR. if true, then there is not a need for that page here as we're not giving legal advise to re-users. It's up to them to find applicable requirements. I'm not agreeing all uses in WM projects are non-commercial. We publish and sell books (?), we use them in blogs, in-house advertisements, to name a few. Jee 12:24, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

I can't see the images, but if they were deleted under the "commercial use" column of the identifiable person page, then Symbol support vote.svg Support. That column is "commercial use" in the publicity rights sense, not the copyright sense, and is not a reason for deletion. The column is only there as information for third-party re-users. Only the the first two columns are possible reasons for deletion, under privacy rights and not copyright. Nothing on that page refers to copyright, so "commercial use" should not be taken that way in that page. The phrase "commercial use" has very different meanings in copyright, trademark, and publicity rights context, and they should not be conflated. It is easy to do since we deal with copyright so much, but that page has nothing to do with copyright whatsoever. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:18, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Carl, it's certainly true that the third column in the summary is a problem, but how do get past:
"Commercial use of a published picture of a person in a public space: Requires consent".
which I quoted above. If that is incorrect, it must be changed by consensus before we deal with this file -- DRs and UnDRs are not the place to discuss incorrect guidance summaries -- they must be discussed on their talk page.
Natuur12, I don't know whether they are public figures or not, but the sentence I have quote twice speaks of all images of identifiable persons, and does not exclude public figures. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:25, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
We are not using the photos commercially on Commons or any Wikimedia sites. If someone wants to use such photos in an advertising context, they can obtain such rights on their own. Of course that requires "consent", but we don't need it. This is exactly like hosting a trademarked image -- we don't have permission to use that commercially either (i.e. indicating a relationship), but we can host them because commercial copyright use is fine. The rights on that page are separate from copyright, though the privacy portion of the page -- as opposed to publicity rights, which is the third column -- can be a non-copyright reason to delete. Privacy rights can affect the right to publish at all, whereas publicity rights (i.e. the "commercial use" on that page) are another aspect of photographing people in a public place, and thus were put on the page. We added the footnote a long time ago when some people confused it with the "commercial use" which makes a file non-free, but that does not. Once we get a list of per-country laws though, people feel bound to fill out all the details, even if they do not affect hosting status. Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:17, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support If only for a deeper DR discussion rather than having it spread on user talk pages; as Carl I cannot see the images to form a firm opinion. Intrusion, personality rights, data protection rights and 'a picture of a person in a public space' are all different things and vary as to whether the subject is identified, identifiable or a public figure. Our current policies probably do not iron out these issues or the varied misinterpretations of our contributors. In particular "personality rights" seems frequently used incorrectly if we are sticking to discussions centered on intellectual property law, and hence commercial exploitation rights rather than muddying the discussion with legislation relating to "intrusion". -- (talk) 15:25, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Again -- third time -- I read the very explicit "Commercial use of a published picture of a person in a public space: Requires consent". to mean the same thing as an NC license -- that it cannot be used in any printed work unless the work is given away, nor on any web site that accepts advertising or money. If all the sentence means is that the image cannot be used as in my first example above, then it is very misleading and needs to be changed -- as I have said repeatedly, we ignore the prohibition on image use in advertising because there is no country or context in which it may be done without consent.
As must be clear by now, I feel strongly that it is time that we got the summary page sorted out -- making it clear that the only sense in which we mean "commercial use" is in the sense of an NC license, not in the sense of an adverting use. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:34, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Again, that page has nothing to do with copyright nor the "free" status of the files -- including the first two columns. We ignore the advertising part because it is a Commons:Non-copyright restriction. The first two columns are more problematic, not because they affect the copyright (they do not) but because simply hosting the files on Commons can actually be an issue per those laws -- Commons itself could be running afoul of the law, not just potential uses by third parties. Hosting the files on Commons is not an issue for the third column, so that column is for information purposes only. Since we deal so much in copyright, it's hard to see the phrase "commercial use" and think of it in any way other than an NC license, but that is the phrase often used in trademark and publicity rights contexts, even though the meaning is dramatically different, so there really isn't an easy way to avoid it -- people are going to use that term, like it or not. It's used in court decisions, etc. You obviously need to obtain a trademark license for commercial use of a trademark, but that is not the same thing as a copyright, and is not an NC situation copyright-wise. Similarly, you need someone's permission (i.e. "consent") to use their likeness in an advertising context -- but that is not the same thing as an NC situation at all, despite the use of the same phrase. We could could change the column to read "advertising/commercial use" to make it a bit more clear, but in general there will be people who use that phrase in non-copyright contexts regardless of what we do, so really we should train ourselves to look at the context of that phrase and see if it pertains specifically to copyright (in which case there is a "free" problem) or some other kind of right, in which case there is not. I'm not sure there is an easy way around that. Here is one page which uses the term -- but purely in a trademark context. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:21, 18 October 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 Poland.
First, the photograph infringes on the copyright belonging to the artist, Czesław Pius Ciapało. It cannot be kept on Commons without a free license from the artist. Second, I suspect that you scanned a postcard or other printed piece, but, in any event, this image appears at http://ciapalo.eu/ with an explicit copyright notice, "Projekt graficzny i wykonanie © Roman Czech", so there are two reasons why this request should not be done. .     Jim . . . .

File:Hierarchy of effects.jpg

This diagram does not appear in Lavidge et al's 1961 article. However, these authors first proposed a hierarchy of effects consisting of the stages itemised in the diagram. The image is based on their ideas or inspired by their ideas as the source correctly acknowledges. However, the diagram combines two different ideas from their article - one is the stages in the hierarchy of effects (awareness, knowledge, etc) and the other is the type of internal processing (cognitive, affective, actions). I believe that this diagram combines ideas from this article in novel ways. At the same time, the diagram attributes the original authors with the ideas. I do not understand how this breaches copyright and wish to request that it is reinstated.

File to undelete : File:Henri Provost de la Fardinière 1936.png

Bonjour,

la photographie liée à l'article Henri Provost de la Fardinière 1936.png a été supprimée le 31 juillet 2016 à 2:55 par Commons Delinker I NeverCry pour la raison que l'image se trouvait déjà sur Google.

Il s'agit d'une photographie entrée dans le domaine public depuis 1936 (il y a 80 ans). La photographie a été publiée dans le livre "Le Houx - Provost de la Fardinière, Sa Vie, Son Oeuvre" (édition Henry Mallez - Cambrai - 1937) La photographie est celle de l'affiche officielle de la campagne électorale du candidat lors des élections législatives de 1936, elle a donc été largement publiée et distribuée à un grand public. Cette photographie est également utilisée comme photographie du député par l'Assemblée Nationale Française (réf. le lien sur Googlze images).

Compte tenu de tous ces éléments, il me semble que la photographie doit pouvoir être rétablie avec l'article sur Henri Provost de la Fardinière.

Cordialement

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Although this time you say it in French, this is the same request, with the same information, that you made on October 8. I will therefore quote my response then:

"There are two copyrights here. The first is for the photograph. Since it is signed, and therefore not anonymous, it does not become PD until 70 years after the death of the photographer. 1936 is far too recent to assume that the photographer died before 70 years ago. The second copyright is for the text at the bottom. If it can be shown that Henri Provost de la Fardinière wrote it, then it is PD, as he died in 1937, but that has not been proven either. In order to restore this, we therefore need both the death date of the photographer (or a license from his heirs) and knowledge of who wrote the text at the bottom and when he died."

Files of Алый Король

Interested parties: @Jcb, Алый Король, Taivo:

The uploader raised a request at User_talk:Jcb#Fukuyama, but this was refused. The original DR is Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_of_Алый_Король. The uploader became annoyed with Jcb, but as Jcb never gave any advice on what action to take, such as UNDEL, nor apparently took the time to look at the evidence, this is not surprising.

The files in question are:

I cannot see the files, so this is much harder for me than it would be for Jcb, but it was stated that they are from https://www.flickr.com/photos/fronteirasweb/sets/72157667881219933. These are frames from a video published by the same organization at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr9-y5fOcA04REYePWrTigw. The official website of the organization is http://www.fronteiras.com/, as stated on the source Flickr profile page, and the same flickrstream is officially linked from their home website (at the top of the page, where there is a "Flickr" icon). The official website also has the full videos, this one appears to be http://www.fronteiras.com/videos/desafios-e-caminhos-para-o-estado-moderno. -- (talk) 17:21, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

The files were deleted as DW of videos with unknown copyright status. Everybody can open contributions of Pink King (that's what Алый Король means in Russian) and look last contributions. There are a lot of photos from the same set, which are not DW-s. If somebody finds out license of video and confirms, that the video has free license, then I am happy to restore the files. Taivo (talk) 18:46, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Please examine the links given. What you ask for has been done. All the photographs are correctly licensed on the official Flickrstream as stated. -- (talk) 19:04, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Just to have another crack at this. The video was released on YouTube by Fronteiras do Pensamento. The Flickrstream is the official stream of Fronteiras do Pensamento. The licences on the photographs in the Flickrstream are on a suitable CC license granted by Fronteiras do Pensamento. That the YouTube license is different does not stop Fronteiras do Pensamento from releasing stills from the video on whatever license they like, so the copyright status of the video on YouTube is irrelevant to determining the validity of the license on Flickr because they are all by the same copyright holder. -- (talk) 19:51, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
@Taivo: The fact that changed my mind was that the entity licensing the photographs is also the copyright holder of the video. Does that change your mind? Storkk (talk) 11:13, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
I found no license on source site of video But if copyright holder of photo and video is the same, then maybe separate license for video isn't needed at all? Taivo (talk) 11:38, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
That is my reading, too... it is slightly similar to a sculptor photographing his own sculpture and releasing the photograph but not the full sculpture. Storkk (talk) 11:56, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose @: So that you can get a feeling for the deleted files, they are very similar in nature (obviously, only in a copyright sense) to the original of File:Inside_the_Hussainia_during_Muharram.jpg. I know you cannot see the original of that either, but I think it should still give you a good idea. Whereas that file still had encyclopedic value with the video blanked out, these probably would not given Category:Francis_Fukuyama, which as Taivo says, contains similar and better images of the speaker from the same event without the video feed. Storkk (talk) 18:56, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
I think the point you are making is that the "video" in the background of the (correctly licensed) photo is in doubt. However these are real-time blow-ups of the figures speaking and form part of the released video, which has been produced by Fronteiras do Pensamento. There is nobody else to make a copyright claim.

None of of the above the points were made in the DR. I suggest the files are undeleted, and then everyone can make their points correctly in the DR rather than deleting for explicitly wrong reasons. -- (talk) 19:02, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
I disagree. The point was indeed raised in the DR that these were derivatives of a video that was not released under a free license. That that fact is superseded by the fact that the copyright holder has released the photograph including the video still and was also the copyright holder of the video was not presented at the DR or at Jcb's talk page before your edit.

I Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose the restoration of any of these. Just as the Federal rule covers only works made by a Federal employee, so the California rule covers only works of an employee of the State or its subdivisions made in the course of his duties. Simply putting a portrait on the web site does not somehow change its copyright status. In order to keep these, it must be proven beyond a significant doubt that the photographer was employed by the state as an official photographer. See the warning at Category:Official presidential painted portraits in the White House for a similar situation. Note also that there is a copyright notice on the source pages -- while that would be an error if the photographer were an employee, it strongly suggests that he was not. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:32, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Then we should perhaps update the text in {{PD-CAGov}} because it says that anything "used or retained by any state or local agency" of California is PD. Some of these images were evidently used by the California State Assembly. De728631 (talk) 14:54, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Indeed we should. It should be clear that if someone in California takes an image of yours or mine off Commons and posts it on a California web site, that does not, somehow, make the image PD. Equally, if an Assemblyman's wife takes a photo of him and he uses it on the web site, that does not make the image PD. While it is perfectly possible, even likely, that the Assembly has an official photographer that took some or all of these photos, "likely" is not our standard of proof. In order to restore any of them, it must be shown beyond a significant doubt that the image was taken by such a person and not by a private person who retained the rights. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:08, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. The licence tag says also that it applies to "a work of the State of California" so an official person would have to be involved in the making of these photographs to place them in the public domain. But this cannot be verified with the information provided so far. De728631 (talk) 17:44, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Hogwash, De728631. {{PD-CAGov}} says no such thing. (That clause very very clearly applies only to "work of the State of California".)--Elvey (talk) 17:09, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Thoughts? User:Clindberg? Only the photographer and politician would know the terms of any contract, and they haven't asked for deletion. And the above verifiably false information (That {{PD-CAGov}} says 'that anything "used or retained by any state or local agency" of California is PD') provided by De728631 makes me trust the claim by User:Muhandes that "All the images are from respective bios in the California Assembly website." more than De728631's that "there is no evidence that these images were actually obtained from the website of the Assembly". Can another admin indicate whether "at no point" were there "weblinks to the alleged source pages", please? (If we want to be consistent WRT to proof required to keep staged photos of legislators and/or Jim's comment, then it looks to me like we should delete the files that are blue links at Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_of_User:Calwonk. Agreed?) --Elvey (talk) 17:09, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Actually, De728631's comment is not hogwash. At Template:PD-CAGov under "when to use" it says "Applies to any works prepared, owned, used or retained by any California state or local agency or officer as part of the public record." Now that isn't correct, because a copyrighted image from a third party does not become PD just because someone puts it up on a California web site. All of the case law that supports this template is about works produced by state employees. The decisions say nothing about third party works that were copyrighted before they were incorporated into web sites or printed material. The template instructions need updating, but Elvey might like to retract the "hogwash" remark.
Note that it shouldn't matter to us whether these came off the Assembly's web site or not -- as I said above, "if an Assemblyman's wife takes a photo of him and he uses it on the web site, that does not make the image PD".
With that understood, I looked at five of these and their descriptions all say:
"Source = California Assembly Website
Author = California Assembly"
Since our rules require a link to the page on which the images occur, that's a "no source" description.

Files of Fotoscot for Wiki Loves Monuments Italy

The institution owning all artworks depicted gave a perfectly regular authorization to Wikimedia Italia. All photos were shot according to the rules of Wiki Loves Monuments Italia and according to Italian laws. It's not acceptable to ask for any further authorization, as per Italian laws the artwork owner has the full rights also on images (and no one here is entitled to doubt about it without any factual proof of the contrary, also AGF should be mandatory). All GLAM projects (galleries and museums) were always based on this very basic principle. --Marcok (talk) 19:32, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose owning an artwork doesn't make you the copyright holder. It's sad but Wikimedia Italy screwed this one up. Natuur12 (talk) 19:56, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
Italian law seems to be:
Art. 109. In the absence of agreement to the contrary, the transfer of one or more copies of the work shall not imply transfer of the exploitation rights afforded by this Law.
However, the transfer of a mold, an engraved plate or any similar medium used to reproduce a work of art shall be deemed, in the absence of agreement to the contrary, to include the right to reproduce the work, provided such right belongs to the transferor.
It's possible Italian law is different in this regard, but which law in particular (or ruling) makes the artwork owner have full rights on images? They often are allowed to publish pictures of the work (to advertise or whatever) but that is usually not the same thing as the right to license it to others. The above law seems to say that transfers of works does not imply transfers of copyright, unless a mold or something was transferred as well. But laws may also have been different when a transfer was made in the past, or there may have been an agreement we are not privy to. If a careful copyright examination was done beforehand, I'm not entirely sure we should assume we know better. Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:10, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Although the request above uses the word "institution", the response to the DR used the word "municipality". I think this is simply another case of one or more municipal officials believing that owning the physical work gives them the right to license it. As Article 109 quoted above makes clear, in the absence of a written agreement to the contrary, that's not the case in Italy or in any other country that I know of. The copyright remains with the creator.
In any case, Commons does not accept unsupported statements from the uploader that the copyright holder said it is OK. No matter who owns the copyright, we still need a written license from the copyright holder via OTRS. So, as I said in closing the DR, in order to restore these we will need either (a) free licenses from the creators or (b) licenses from the towns including copies of their written agreement with the creators which allow the towns to freely license the works. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:56, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Wikimedia Italy obtained written authorisation from institutions (municipalities, museums, sopraintendenze ai beni culturali, whatever...) granting rights to take and use the pictures of selected works of art "under [their] own jurisdiction" in agreement with Italian law. Sorry if I'm a bit too upfront, but I find it ridiculous that users like us (even more so if not familiar with Italian laws and procedures) argue on the validity of an authorisation issued by the relevant authorities. Commons is not a right management company, and if an institution authorises the use of a work, and certifies that it has the right to do so, we must not argue with that. In my opinion, these pictures must be immediately undeleted and, at most, a copy of the authorisations obtained by WMI should be archived in the OTRS. It is the institution's duty to keep the documents of the agreements with the authors, not ours. Full disclosure: I'm Italian, member of Wikimedia Italy and involved in WLM.--Japs 88 (talk) 08:28, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
I think you misunderstood what Wikimedia Commons does. When we would process such a release via OTRS the better agents ask for further details regarding the arrangement made between the institution and the artist. Even multinationals with huge legal departments often confuse being granted a license with being able to sublicense a work for example. Not because their legal department is incompetent or something similar but merely because someone not familiar with copyright law deals with the situation. This is one of the most Common scenario's when dealing with releases from company's, institutions etc. Follow up questions are always required.
You don't have to be familiar with all the details of Italian copyright law to make a valid assessment of this situation since copyright law is pretty much the same everywhere in the European Union. Some details differ like when dealing with the definition of anonymous works or copyright durations in some countries for older works but not when it comes to the basics as only the copyright holder can license a work and this is always the creator in the EU unless the copyright was explicitly transferred or the employer of the employee owns the copyright.
Carl has a point when he states that If a careful copyright examination was done beforehand, I'm not entirely sure we should assume we know better. but WMI should have asked details and provided documentation via OTRS. And I have to say that the huge amount of fallacy used by the persons who want to keep the files is clouding the discussion.
@Cristian Cenci (WMI): perhaps you want to reply in this discussion as well? Natuur12 (talk) 12:49, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, Japs 88, but it is not at all ridiculous. I would guess that nine times out ten when an organization that does not deal with copyright law every day, including almost all municipalities and most museums, claims that it has the right to freely license images of works that it owns, it turns out to be incorrect.
I am going to guess that the permissions "granting rights to take and use the pictures of selected works of art "under [their] own jurisdiction" in agreement with Italian law" actually speak only to the actual photography and not to the question of licensing of the copyrights. I will further guess that they do not speak at all about copyright and do not state that they are irrevocable. I'll give three to one odds on the first being correct and even money on the second.
As I said above, the appropriate thing to do here is to forward the permissions to OTRS and have our experts examine them. That's required anyway -- as I also said above, we never accept assertions from the uploader that the use on Commons was authorized. If an image is not "own work" or does not come from a source clearly marked with a free license, we always require that copyright holder send a free license to OTRS. .     Jim . . . .

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose If it is close enough to the original to be useful, then it is clearly a derivative work. The three cited paragraphs are not helpful.
Commons requires that all works here be free for any use by anybody anywhere, including commercial use, and does not permit restrictions to specific uses such as those listed at (2) and (3). For example, a Commons image must be free to be put on tee shirts or posters, neither of which are included in (2) and (3). .     Jim . . . .

If this is true, most of works here (except photos) must be derivatives. Would help if I had put {{PD-textlogo}} as a license? Oppashi Traditional Chinese character Sheng.svg talk 10:58, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
We delete several hundred images a day because they are derivative works. The many derivative works we do keep are either PD or are properly licensed by the creator of the original. Since we do not know the threshold of originality in North Korea, {{PD-textlogo}} would not pass the test of significant doubt. The logo would probably not be eligible for copyright in the USA, but probably would in the UK. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:49, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Since Oppashi has uploaded a number of similar derivative works, I advise that they (or someone else) looks at them from the same perspective. Finnusertop (talk) 17:19, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
I guess my other works are simple text logos or are made of simple shapes so they don't enjoy any copyright. Or some derivative works are made from free images. I want to ask someone to patrol them though. Oppashi Traditional Chinese character Sheng.svg talk 17:23, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Reason: OTRS 2016101210011603 - Valid permission Scoopfinder(d) 12:31, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The first of these is a journal article, which includes a B&W photo of a painting. The painting is not one of the four shown on the OTRS ticket, so, while we apparently have permission for the article's text, we do not have a license for the painting. The second is a 1978 letter addressed to M. Visson. The OTRS ticket includes a permission document that purports to be from the sender of the letter, but it came from a third party, is not on letterhead, and has no manual signature. Since the uploader here has shown a significant disregard for copyright (30 deleted files), I am not inclined to Assume Good Faith. I think we need an e-mail or letter directly from the man who sent the 1978 letter. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:26, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Hola que tal, yo soy el autor de la fotografía, y es una imagen de un personaje célebre de internet que se caracteriza por su humor obsceno, humor negro o humor verde. El fin de la foto es ilustrar su biografía, la cual estoy trabajando, y no con la intención de ofender o por ocio, pues todas las imágenes que he subido son con el fin de ilustrar artículos acorde al tema. Así como existen artículos sexuales que contienen fotografías con esa tonalidad cruda. Aquí les dejo algunas fuentes sobre el futuro biografiado del que estoy trabajando:

Eric Aho Images Deleted - Artist send an email to wikipedia giving permission!

Hello,

I was told to have Eric Aho email wikipedia himself to give me permission to use the photos (I took) on his wikipedia page.

This is the email that was sent to the wikimedia commons: <email redacted>

The images should not have been deleted, based on your guidelines all necessary steps were followed. Please re-publish both images that I previously uploaded. They were both installation shots.

Thank you,

Hard has managed personally this stuff, and the University of Navarre uploaded these two in its Flickr account with a CC-BY-SA 2.0 license. I hope it's enough to grant the permission.

File:Ambigram sex 69.gif

I think the admin Ellin Beltz requested to delete this file because it's written CLITORIS on it, and she probably considered this word offensive (cf. the reason of the deletion in her comment, talking about deviant art, as if there was noble and minor art). Perhaps she wants to remove my files from the Commons Project as she fears I am a vandal ?

But she certainly missed the main point of the subject : this design is an original and creative ambigram.

Please visit this nomination page for the deletion where I laboriously try to contest the decision, and also visit my own personal page from my signature.

Reason: These files were deleted on the basis of possible copyright violations.

  Oppose I doubt very much that ISM "owns the copyrights to these images". The copyrights are almost certainly owned by P&G and I also doubt that ISM has a license which allows them to be freely licensed to others.

  •   Oppose this is exactly why we have the procedure outlined at COM:OTRS... we cannot verify on this forum that you are indeed "Ignite Social Media", or that P&G have transferred copyright to you. You can, however, provide evidence confidentially via COM:OTRS, and we will need that in order to restore the files. Note that if you only possess "publicity rights", you almost certainly do not have the authority to license the files freely, so it is likely the OTRS agent will need either to see the relevant portion of the contract transferring you the rights, or a legal representative of P&G will need to confirm.

"With respect to use of photographs and videos maintained on this website pertaining to the MacArthur Fellows by the media, the applicable Creative Commons License will be Attribution: CC- BY. This permits non- commercial and commercial use by media as long as there is attribution." [22]
this is a creative commons release stressing the importance of attribution. macarthur photos should be a settled matter, deletion should be a mistake, against policy. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 13:14, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Commercial use by media is not a free license if I want to sell t-shirts with this photo. Thuresson (talk) 13:45, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Right. "Media" implies the press -- magazines, newspapers, television, internet news sources. It does not include tee shirts, posters, and most web sites. We can argue whether text books and history books are included in "the media" -- I would say not, but it's irrelevant. (Note that I was the deleting Admin.) .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:01, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm not 100% sure that this is a valid license restriction. If a media outlet used the file and noted that it was CC-BY, would we accept the photo from them? Storkk (talk) 15:08, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
The rule of law in the US is that the particular overrides the general. So, the fact that the Foundation put a particular restriction on the generality of the CC-BY license means that the restriction rules. Now, it is certainly possible that the attempt to restrict the license to media invalidates the license altogether, but that doesn't matter to us -- a court would find that either there is no CC-BY license for anyone or that there is a CC-BY license, but only for the media. It could not find that there is a CC-BY license for everyone because that is clearly not what the Foundation intends. Note that this limited license applies only to images and videos of MacArthur Fellows. Everything else on the site is CC-BY-NC which reinforces the Foundation's intention to be very careful with its copyrighted material. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:21, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
wow, so CC-BY can be restricted but saying "for use by media"? do you have any case law for that? you realize that this is a site where you cannot amend your flickr license to put NC on it, the original CC rules forever? what is commons if not media? a playground for amateur lawyers? so now we need to email every GLAM on earth to wiki'splain: "please do not add explanatory material to your rights statement, or it will get deleted from commons". you realize how many NC's on PD-art we ignore; and we told the Prado to "bring it on"? the intent was very clear when they said "CC- BY. This permits non- commercial and commercial use" the fact that they have a media distribution mindset, does not amend the license. you missed about 200 others like this - let the mass deletions commence. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 15:35, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
That's not what I said. What the Foundation is saying is clear -- if you are media, then you have a CC-BY license, If you are not media, then you must live within the Foundation's general CC-BY-NC license. That is a perfectly legitimate use of the license. They could just as legitimately say that they will give the license only to people over fifty -- it does not change the license, but does restrict who may use it.
Commons may or may not be media -- I would say not, but others disagree. But that doesn't matter. Images on Commons must be free for any use, even tee shirts, and tee shirts are certainly not "the media". .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:32, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
that is not what the foundation said, that is your interpretation. an alternate interpretation is both commercial and non-commercial use of media by media, and words are NC. and again you have no legal precedent for your interpretation of a CC-BY license. there is policy precedent here to ignore NC restrictions upon a license, when the community agrees it has no standing. where is your community consensus for your interpretation? Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 22:18, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Again, I am not interpreting the license, I am simply stating something out of thirty years experience in the IP world dealing with copyrights. It is very common for copyright holders of important works to grant different licenses for the same work to different licensees. An author of a novel may grant first serial rights to a magazine, US publication rights to publisher A, UK rights to publisher B, and movie rights to a studio. Same work, four different licenses. So it is perfectly straightforward and not uncommon for the Foundation to have granted the media a CC-BY license and everyone else a CC-BY-NC license. That doesn't change the license, just the persons to whom it is granted. (I use the term "persons" in the sense of "legal persons", including actual people as well as organizations, corporations, and governments.) .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:44, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
again, you are interpreting the clear statement of the foundation to mean that they can restrict use of their CC-BY license to only media. if they wanted to restrict the CC-BY to only media, and CC-BY-NC to everyone else, they could have said that, but they did not. they did not define what they meant "by media", they did not say "the media" they did not say "mainstream media" , they did not say "media outlet A": there is no evidence they meant to exclude commons. they very well could have, but did not. "A Creative Commons (CC) license is one of several public copyright licenses that enable the free distribution of an otherwise copyrighted work." that was their intent, and i do not see any reason to subvert their intent. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 00:56, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
note to closing admin: if image stays deleted, then i will nominate all 774 images here Category:MacArthur Fellows, as the same rights statement. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 01:22, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
Slowking4, I agree that something should be done, and I have sent a message to the Foundation asking them to clarify their license. Please hold off for a week or so to see if they respond and how. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:12, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

  Not done: Our goal is to provide content that can be used by anyone, media or otherwise, both in commerical product or otherwise, and make adoptations of said content. Restricting the "free for commerical purposes" but only for media, but not for others, is not serving our goal, and not premitted per our policies. THis has not been undeleted, since the nominator has failed to show community consensus (or case law) that we can allow restrictions on Creative Commons licenses to accept non-commercial media as long as only some people can use it for that purpose. Their intent may be one thing, but it is an invalid release, if they put restictions on said release. (tJosve05a (c) 06:08, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

deleting admin says come here. PD-US-1978-89 per SIRIS [23] no registration at http://cocatalog.loc.gov [24]. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 13:43, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
The fact that it is on public display after 1978 does not necessarily mean it was published -- see Commons:Public art and copyrights in the US. That is the difficulty. The fact it is one of six versions may help that case though -- if he offered copies for sale. And it sounds like that copy was commissioned by a third party, so someone else did gain an ownership interest -- so the work itself should be published it sounds like. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:26, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Interesting point, I presume the statue would need to have a copyright mark visible somewhere, even if on a separate plaque, in order to be considered under copyright with the above dates in mind. -- (talk) 14:38, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
according to SIRIS it was published. "Dates: 1984-1985." what evidence of publish date would you accept? yes there are around 3000 sculpture with (c) on them, as noted in SIRIS [25]; this is not one of them. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 15:27, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
  Support Since, as Slowking has pointed out, there is no registration of the copyright, it is PD unless there is a copyright notice on it. Since the SIRIS record calls out an inscription that is not a copyright notice ("(On proper left leg, vertically:) 2947538 signed"), I am inclined to believe that there is no notice. (For the record, many SIRIS files do not show an inscription -- since it could have simply been overlooked, I don't like to accept those as evidence of no-notice.)
Slowking4, as Carl has pointed out, "published" in the technical copyright sense of the word does not necessarily happen when the sculpture is put up, so SIRIS does not actually speak to the point. My understanding of the rule is that if a sculpture is in a public place and photography is permitted, then it is published. If it were in museum where photography was forbidden, then publication might not ever happen. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:37, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
when a sculpture is erected in a public place, it is published. SIRIS establishes the date, and location. the sculpture was then later photographed in the public place. by the case law, photography cannot be prohibited in a public place. what is your process to establish facts of publication here? when you have an edition, then first publication rules, not subsequent editions that may even be in private collections. you can view the various editions in the SIRIS and they are the same, no creative difference. Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 15:46, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Borofsky has done numerous Hammering Man statues. The one in Seattle was installed in 1991.
If this is OK, then there are a lot of other photos of Hammering Man in Seattle that should be undeleted, if there is any way to find them. And once we undelete, the category for the statue should explain the basis on which it is OK. - Jmabel ! talk 16:05, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Since 1978, erecting a sculpture in a public place does *NOT* publish it. That is what the link I gave above talks about, at length. The simple public display of a work -- even permanently -- no longer constitutes publication, so lack of copyright notice on a public copy does not mean it is PD. The work must be published by other means, per the definition in the 1978 law. That typically happens upon distribution of copies -- or the offering for sale -- but it sounds like this one was. Although if any copy was put up after March 1 1989, it would have to be close to an exact copy of the previous (established PD) works for it to be OK. If it was separately copyrightable (new expression in that version) there would be no way to lose that copyright. Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:36, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Jmabel, see SIRIS for nine of them. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:45, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
your court case says: The court noted, however, "We do not mean to say that the public exhibition of a painting or statue, where all might see and freely copy it, might not amount to publication within the statute, regardless of the artist's purpose or notice of reservation of rights which he takes no measure to protect. But such is not the present case," you have now rejected that possibility. do you have a precedent rejecting these facts?
well, when public sculptures are erected, there tends to be press coverage, and gallery catalogs, i.e. "A Century of Modern Sculpture: The Patsy and Raymond Nasher Collection," Dallas Museum of Art, 1987, pg.100. [26]; and [27]; [28]; [29] do you want a book scan to prove the point, or is a reference enough? do you want me to research clippings of gallery openings at Paula Cooper Gallery NYC? [30] the work was apparently offered for sale there, do you imagine it was offered for sale with no derivative marketing given out?
"This work is one of a total of six larger-than-life-size versions of "Hammering Man." This twenty-foot version was commissioned by the Nashers and is the only version in this scale. All are signed with sequential numbers rather than a signature." is it the artist's intent to have an edition? will commons honor the artist's intent? Slowking4 § Richard Arthur Norton's revenge 22:30, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
That court case was under the 1909 Copyright Act (actually the one even earlier, but the court ruled similarly under the 1909 Act). However, the 1976 Act included a definition of "publication" which the previous laws did not, so the definition changed in some aspects, this being one. That ended the concept of "general publication" and "limited publication" which had existed. Earlier court cases therefore are no help in determining the status from 1978 onwards. Please read Commons:Public art and copyrights in the US#After 1978 -- if you are quoting that court case for anything 1978 or later, it is no help. That does remain valid before 1978 though. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:11, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
sale is publication, and the work was sold from Paula Cooper Gallery to Patsy and Raymond Nasher Collection in 1987, as the SIRIS indicates. your table has a blanket statement without a reference to the 1976 act or case law which is inadequate.

This image appears on [31] and various other youtube pages. --Didym (talk) 18:35, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

  Oppose per Didym. We need permission from the original photographer sent to OTRS by email. De728631 (talk) 20:14, 27 October 2016 (UTC)


  Not done: OTRS permission from copyright holder is required. --lNeverCry 02:06, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Bob Truluck.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: This photo is both a photo of and property of the Author Bob Truluck. It was his request for the photo to be uploaded, so that it could be used on his Wikipedia page. I uploaded it based on those instructions. Pinknolegirl (talk) 20:50, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Owning a copy of the photo does not make Mr. Truluck the copyright holder. Copyright is almost always held by the photographer and only they can grant a free licence. The original photographer would have to send an email as explained in COM:OTRS. De728631 (talk) 22:32, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Futanari-banned.png

argument is that the uncensored version is all we need, as WP is not censored, and thus this file has no educational value. i disagree. i had placed this deleted file next to the original, File:Futanari.png, at the Pornography portal, Portal:Pornography/Featured picture/73, to illustrate the effect of censor bars. This technique could, and probably should, be used at an article on censorship or pornography. thus, it does have educational value as a censored work of art.

  •   Support The censored version can be used to illustrate censorship, therefore the image is in the project scope of Commons. De728631 (talk) 22:35, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

  Done: restored. --lNeverCry 02:01, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Autocunnilingus.jpg

en:Autocunnilingus was undeleted per en:Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2016 October 15.

This seems a bit irrelevant to the deletion discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/All images in Category:Sex drawings by User:Rama... the image was not deleted as out of scope. Reventtalk 13:12, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
  Oppose Agreed -- the file was deleted as a derivative work copyvio, not on scope grounds. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:33, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

  Not done This is the second (or third?) undeletion request above this file, with the same rationale. Copyright issues must be solved first before restoring this file. Poké95 01:53, 29 October 2016 (UTC) (non-admin closure)
