File:Soldados da FEB no segundo asalto da batalha de Monte Castelo.jpg

The photo was taken during the Second World War in Rocca Corneta (municipality of Lizzano in Belvedere, province of Bologna, Italy) during the second assault of the Battle of Monte Castello by the Brazilian Army on 29 November 1944. According to italian law, images shot in Italy are on Public Domain after 20 years (see: Template:PD-Italy). Then, according to Brazilian Copyright Law (see: Template:PD-Brazil-media) photographic works shall be protected for a period of 70 years from the first of January of the year following that of their disclosure (this photo was shot 72 years ago). So I guess this photo can be restored, fixing the correct licence (original uploader listed it as "own work" with cc-by-sa-4.0, instead of Author:Brazilian Army, date:1944-11-29; license:PD-Italy+PD-Brazil-media). Thanks for your attention. If you need any additional info, please ping me. --Holapaco77 (talk) 15:50, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Planb88

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: I talked to the uploader and verified that he is in fact Marcus Kayne, husband of Rebecca Mader. I asked him to confirm via Twitter, which he did. [1] Rebecca Mader also retweeted this.

With this new information, it seems safe to presume that he is telling the truth about taking these photos himself. Guanaco (talk) 07:50, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Now ongoing dispute, photo being allegedly a cropped professional photo. Planb88 denies this and reasserts he took it with his iPhone. Guanaco (talk) 08:41, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose the first three files are copyright violations, no doubt. The other two files are cropped versions of the photo at [2] or photos taken from the exact same position and therefore by the same photographer. --Martin H. (talk) 09:11, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I can't find the first two images -- the site that the deletion says they are from has similar images from the same photo shoot, but not the same ones. The third is definitely claimed by Getty. The last two are indeed crops from the image Martin H. cites. If, in fact, Planb88 is Marcus Kayne, then he cannot have taken the image because he appears in it and it is not a selfie. On the other hand, the Twitter page cited by Guanaco is fairly convincing. I think the best thing here is to follow our usual procedure and require an OTRS license. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:59, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello Jim,

The band manager has just sent an e-mail as requested to OTRS confirming that they have released this picture for free use. The email is kimaeraband@gmail.com and can be confirmed on the band's website or facebook page. www.kimaera.info or facebook.com/kimaeraofficial.

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

If a free license has been sent to OTRS, then the image will be restored automatically when and if the e-mail is received, processed, and approved. If the e-mail has been properly received there, then the sender should receive an automatic reply with the ticket number. If the sender has not had a reply, please check that it was sent correctly and try again. Note that OTRS, like Commons, is entirely staffed by volunteers, and, also like Commons, is shorthanded, so it may be several weeks or more before the e-mail is processed and the image is restored. .     Jim . . .

File:Up_at_the_66th_Mostra.jpg

This has been tagged as copyright violation by AntonierCH but this file had been kept once per Commons:Deletion requests/File:Up at the 66th Mostra.jpg. Therefore it needed at least a DR if he wanted to question it again with new arguments.
(NB : AntonierCH's recent activity looks like he's upset against me for some reason. I hope I'm wrong and that he's not in a revenge/ animosity logic, but there are some strange relations between recent attempts of deleting some of my uploads) --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 16:00, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info The deletion request is from 2009. Since 2011 we have COM:COSTUME. Thuresson (talk) 16:35, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
@Thuresson: I wasn't aware of COM:COSTUME, thanks for that information. Just a "technical" question : as I wrote above, I wasn't saying that the file shouldn't be deleted but that a DR might have been a better thing to do since there was a previous DR. Moreoever, I think the "copyvio" tag doesn't apply to cases like costumes. Am I wrong ? --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 06:30, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. "... posting pictures of costumes or masks that are themselves under copyright, or which depict characters that are under copyright could qualify as copyright infringement" per this WMF statement. This is obviously the case here, where it is even more than a costume : the 3D character has been directly 3D printed to create the costume. It is obviously copyrighted. TwoWings: Please assume good faith, I have other stuff to do and there is no reason for a revenge or whatever has it has been already been stated. --AntonierCH (d) 17:38, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
@AntonierCH: Since you recently wrote wrong accusations towards me when I asked you any explanations (you assumed it was not important when you deleted my message ! wow !), and since it seemed strange to see you trying to delete several of my uploads afterwards (and apparently you're upset when they are kept), I assumed it was logical to think that from you. At least, you may not be the perfect person to ask me to assume good faith from you. So just try not to abuse (even if you may be right in this case). Thanks. --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 06:30, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
@AntonierCH: But I agree that you proved your good faith here. So let's end with that and try not to be rancorous with each other. Regards. --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 06:36, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

File:Eva Sonnino and Dino Sonnino, cover photo.jpeg

Reason: The photo is most probably not covered by copyright since Bernardo Sandals, the company owned at the time by R G Barry in 1970, went out of business in the early 1990's. Edward Sonnino (talk) 21:47, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose In most cases the copyright will be held by the photographer or his heirs. If, in the rare case that that photographer transferred the copyright to Bernardo Sandals, then it is likely that the company's intellectual property (including its copyrights) was sold at the windup auction. If not, then they are orphan copyrights. In any case, the copyrights still exist and the images cannot be kept on Commons unless there is a copyright holder and he is willing to freely license them. If the copyrights are orphans, then the images cannot be kept on Commons until the copyrights expire. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:23, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Files from MapQuest

According to the DR's below it does not seem that MapQuest published under a free license. But there are a lot's of files that created with ShareMap (Category:Created with ShareMap). The EXIF indicate that the file is CC-BY-SA 3.0 but the source also mentioned MapQuest as one of the sources (example). If files from ShareMap are ok then those DR's should be undeleted.

Also raised it in Commons:Village pump/Copyright#files from MapQuest. -- Geagea (talk) 13:08, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose File:Belarus (night train).svg shows a ShareMap source, which would be OK (Sharemap is CC-BY-SA-3.0), but it is not the same map as the one one Sharemap -- it has more detail in the countryside. It mentions six data sources, of which only MapQuest is not freely licensed, but that is enough to make it unusable here.

The third and fourth cases are taken directly from MapQuest and clearly cannot be kept here. The first two are from a a now discontinued "MapQuest Open", for which license information is not available any more. Since we can't cite the now-missing license there, I think we must assume that the DRs were correct. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:49, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

File:Didier Vermeiren, Adam, 1999 Tate Modern.jpg

This file has been deleted today or yesterday, so i asked Mr. Vermeiren, the artist (the author of the photography and also of the work) to ad it himself to the wikicommons project so I could use it on wikipedia. So he created his own account and he did it this afternoon.

Shev123 has been very suspicious of every move regarding the Vermeiren page on wikipedia, but everything has now been done by the book, at least I'm trying too when I have enough time

Thanks alot for your attention

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I do not see an account in the name User:Didier Vermeiren. I do see that someone has uploaded the image a second time using a slightly different filename after it was deleted. If that person knew that the image had been deleted previously, then this is a violation of Commons rules and a waste of human and computer resources.

If M. Vermeiren wishes to open an account in order to upload and freely license his work, that would be very welcome. However, since both vandals and fans can easily open an account and claim that they are a famous artist, policy requires that the artist must send proof of his identity using OTRS.

As far as I can see, Shev123's suspicions have been entirely correct. We do not yet have any evidence that M. Vermeiren has freely licensed his work or wants to do so. Such suspicions may be very frustrating to the honest user, but please understand that we are only trying to protect the artist's copyright in a world where there are many people who might want to violate it. .     Jim . . .

Baker-Washington March cut.jpg

Wrong deletion about Pr Fox's pictures.


Hello,
What I've you done ? Why my pictures loaded since a long time are deleted now, though it is Public domain !?

It is very complicated to contribute with visual pictures on wikipédia (in addition to that tutorials are in english) ; but I assure you it is a "maldonne" (like we say in French) ! First (about Josephine Baker) are from public notoriety free to use (ex: [J.B. in Washington March] etc.)
And the second choice (Georges Arnaud) is a review of a picture offered by the son of the writer himself. (P.D.) I'll be pleased if you can undelete those contributions (or if you'll do not erase it again, in the case I'll be obliged to re-load them...) Thanks for your attention. --Pr Fox (talk) 13:50, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose These were deleted via Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Pr Fox. You claimed these images as your "own work", and now you tell me each comes from a different source and author (which is why we deleted them in the first place, since it's obvious they weren't your own work). Public notoriety doesn't make these free to use. OTRS permission from the copyright holder of these images is needed. If you re-upload any of these three images, I'll be forced to delete them again and block your account, so I wouldn't recommend that you do so. Daphne Lantier 18:25, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agreed. It is clear that Pr Fox is not the author of these images as he originally claimed. As Daphne says, in order for any of them to be restored, the actual copyright holder of the image, which is almost always the photographer, must send a free license using OTRS. .     Jim . . .

File:Ejkm.png

I request you undelete this file, for the following reasons:


As it was found easily on Google images, and I have seen the file used on multiple different sites, I see it as fair game.


It is the only suitable file of it's kind. There are no other files of a good enough quality and suitable pixel size depicting the same image.


I feel this is a far more appropriate image than any other, as it is closest in design to the original flag. The currently used photo is an incorrect image.


The currently used item shows signs of bias/propaganda. The icon depicts Ériu, the symbol of Irish Nationalism (the topic in question) in a Negroid fashion. This is disrespectful to the topic, and is in my opinion racist. The currently used icon is not true to the original image it is meant to be depicting.


There was no copyright signature on the original image, and no signs the creator of such an image did not want others to redisplay their work in similar Wikis to the one in which it was originally used. I would surmise quite the opposite is the case.


I believe we at Wikipedia have a moral obligation to the truth, and to display history in a non-biased, objective fashion. I hope you consider my request, and the implications of ignoring such demands, as simple as they may be.


Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Image Undeletion

Hello Yann,

Please restore the following pages:

Reason:

Hello Wiki,

As per adhering to wiki guidelines & getting permission to upload image through wiki email template granting common licensing to use my image for any purposes, the link page image got removed by an administrator.

Kindly look into this matter to solve the query.

Thank You

Good Day

File:Brisbane Christian College Logo.svg

Hi,

I would like to ask guidance regarding the correct way to upload an image under Fair Use, not Free Use. Based on my reading of the Wikimedia article and other similar types of images for an education entity I understand I have followed the guidelines.

I am happy to do the work for this to be correct but feel that the deletion is unwarranted due to the current Wikimedia policy.

Thank you, I appreciate your time.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Lb.ee (talk • contribs) 10:14, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
As per COM:FU, fair use is not allowed here on Commons. You would have to upload the file at Wikipedia (see Wikipedia:Non-free content). Daphne Lantier 19:33, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
No such file of this name has ever been uploaded at Commons or the English Wikipedia and hotlinking images from the web or from your computer does not work at all on Wikimedia pages, so the image was not deleted either. This logo from the website of the Brisbane Christian College, however, seems to be creative enough to be copyrighted under Australian law, so you would have to upload it locally at Wikipedia with a fair use rationale.
I have now done this for you, but for future reference, I'll list the required steps for the fastest way below:
  • Download the logo to your computer and convert it to a small raster image (jpg, png) using some image-processing software of your choice. This is required to satisfy the fair use criteria of the English Wikipedia which demand that the sampled image is always reasonably small enough to prevent misuse by third parties. 300 x 300 pixels should be ok and this SVG logo was even smaller.
  • At the English Wikipedia click the "Upload file" button in the "tools" menu on the left side of the page.
  • Choose "Wikipedia / Plain form for local uploads" in the next screen.
  • Then comes the file upload form. Enter the source file from your computer and change the destination filename if needed so it becomes descriptive.
  • In the big text box called "Summary", enter the following code:

{{Non-free use rationale logo | Article = Brisbane Christian College | Use = Infobox | Website = https://brisbanechristiancollege.com.au/ }}

  • Select "Logo" from the "Licensing" menu.
  • "Upload file"

Dear Administrator

I want this files to be retrieved because the logo is bought on freelancer. I paid 50 $ for the logo to be made on the open contest in freelancer. Whenever I announced and selected the winner all rights to use the logo are granted and transferred to me. If you need additional proof please let me know.

(OsmanDzudzevic (talk) 10:44, 9 June 2017 (UTC))

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, you must show that the logo is that of a significant organization -- that usually requires that there be a Wikipedia article on it. Then, having done that here, you must have the actual copyright holder send a free license using OTRS. Note that there appears to be nothing in Freelancer's terms of service that suggests that your commissioning a work includes a transfer of the copyright. Unless there is a specific written agreement, signed by the creator, which transfers copyright to you, you do not have the right to freely license these logos. .     Jim . . .

File:lasallecollegianfrontpage.jpg

The file was a photo of free, public weekly newspaper, the La Salle Collegian, which currently does not have a photo. The previous photo was outdated. The new photo was deleted by user:Secondarywaltz, which, on his talk page suggested that I don't need a photo. I think the page does, since it has a photo before and I deleted it because it was outdated.

--Thmsmcn (talk) 18:13, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Since the image appears at IMDB, policy requires that Hayley Greer send a free license directly using OTRS.

(Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:24, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

The image didn't first appear on IMDb however, it was published on her Instagram and mine and I uploaded it to IMDb myself. Since she was not paid for the shoot, she doesn't have the copyright; I have a copy of the contract stating that.

--Thmsmcn (talk) 21:04, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

It doesn't matter where it was first uploaded (other than if that was on Commons) - policy is the same. Her not being paid cuts the other way -- assuming she actually signed a formal written license or transfer of copyright, there was not consideration (in the formal legal sense) for the agreement and therefore it may not be binding. In any case, as I said above, shoe must send a free license using OTRS. You could also try sending a free license yourself, but you would have to prove to the satisfaction of the OTRS agent that Greer has actually given you the right to freely license the work and that that agreement is binding despite the lack of consideration. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:40, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Files in Category:Official portraits of Donald Trump

File:Donald Trump official portrait.jpg and its derivatives were deleted based on information received by the OTRS team. The OTRS concluded that the official portrait was not made in the capacity as an employee of the federal government, and as such, is not in the public domain. The community has accepted this decision as valid.

Because the portrait is not in the public domain, its author can license the work under any license he chooses in whatever publication he wishes. Based on publicly available information, it can be concluded that the copyright holder has agreed to license the photograph under a free content license on the official website of the White House:

The portrait is sourced to the official website of the White House, whose Copyright Policy notes that: "Except where otherwise noted, third-party content on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License." Because the Trump portrait is not accompanied by a message that would state otherwise, the assumption is that the White House website has published it under the CC BY license.

The situation is thus that we have a reputable publisher (the White House) claiming that the copyright holder has agreed to publish the portrait under a CC BY license on their website. Unless we have the copyright holder explicitly deny this, I think we should trust what the White House is telling the public: the image has been granted publication under a free license by its copyright holder.

The only way to justify the deletion of these files is thus if OTRS agents can confirm that the copyright holder has, in the OTRS ticket that the deletion was based on, explicitly stated that they have not agreed to the license on the White House website.

For further information, please see pre-undeletion request discussion at User talk:Revent#Regarding the Trump portrait deletions. Finnusertop (talk) 23:23, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

The reputability of this administration in regards to licences is questionable. As mentioned in the deletion discussion by Stemoc they may have made mistakes on the WH Flickr. In the can make mistakes during the administration, mistakes prior to it are completely plausible. Furthermore it is curious as to why only the image of Trump was tagged and not those of Pence. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 23:57, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
The White House is not listed at Commons:Problematic sources as a notorious license launderer. In fact, the White House, with an army of lawyers and media people, politically responsible of its good standing, and legally responsible as a government agency, is an exceptionally reputable source of media. We should absolutely assume that they have the competence and integrity to correctly use licensed files. If they have made a mistake in this particular case, that should be proven, not assumed. Finnusertop (talk) 00:29, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
I can totally accept that, but I was just saying that we should be open minded and not believe that they are infallible. My point about Pence still stands as it was revealed in the same inauguration document and is also present on the website. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 00:37, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
Agreeing with the Emir re: reputability of the source of the license. I tend to think, in the absence of a chief technology officer, Mr. Obama's work is in use by Mr. Trump's administration. The White House copyright page was first crawled on January 21, 2009 (Internet archive); it had the same license (CC-BY-3.0) eight years ago. -SusanLesch (talk) 15:36, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support per request and for the reasons I gave on the closer's talk page. The deletion discussion centered around the OTRS ticket and whether or not these images were in the public domain; neither those proposing deletion nor the closer addressed the argument that these are, per the White House, licensed to us under the Commons-compatible CC BY 3.0 US license. Since we have a valid license, it's irrelevant that these are not public domain. Rebbing 01:24, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
    • If the Whitehouse did not produce the photograph, then they have no standing to grant a CC license. Unless the photographs were produced as "work for hire", the right to grant licenses is reserved solely to the photographer.- MrX 16:45, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
      • I'm not suggesting that the White House produced the photograph or licensed it by its own right. I'm arguing that the White House had seen to it in some way that this image was validly licensed under a Creative Commons license. Perhaps it obtained a contractual right to sublicense the photograph as it saw fit; perhaps it had a work for hire arrangement. It doesn't matter. What matters is that the White House publicly attests that this image is lawfully licensed under a free license, and we ought to take its word for it. Rebbing 16:57, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
        • I certainly acknowledge the possibility that the Whitehouse may have the right to sublicense it, and they may even own it if it was produced under Work for hire (U.S. Copyright Office publiction). Where I believe we disagree is that we should take the Whitehouse website at its word.- MrX 17:18, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Reluctant oppose based on Rob13's statement that the ticket affirmatively and conclusively rebuts the White House's claim that these are licensed under a Creative Commons license, as well as on our precautionary principle. Rebbing 13:43, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per User talk:Revent#Regarding the Trump portrait deletions and as an OTRS agent (verify): per COM:PRP due to the info given in the OTRS ticket. whitehouse.gov is perpetrating copyfraud in this case (neither the White House nor the US Government was authorized to release the original image with a CC license), and retaining these photos would leave the WMF and our reusers open to serious civil and criminal liability.   — Jeff G. ツ 05:38, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support as the OTRS notice fails to provide information indicating the White House license is in breach of copyright. Being an official source, the onus is on the government to maintain this license and present this information, or otherwise on those handling the ticket to prove that the White House notice is invalid or currently a matter under consideration for legal action. --Simtropolitan (talk) 02:33, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. "CC licenses are not revocable." per "What if I change my mind." Licensing with predictable, standard usage rights extending to all users is a fundamental practice of both the Wikimedia commons archive and the Creative Commons. This deletion, sorry to say, made no sense in light of an existing CC license. -SusanLesch (talk) 13:58, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
    • The first five words are accurate, but since there is no evidence that the photographer granted a CC license, and apparently OTRS has evidence that he did not, then those five words are inapplicable. The Whitehouse website cannot grant a license for content that they do not own.- MrX 16:32, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
No, the OTRS ticket as reported does not contain evidence nor make any claims about whatever license the photographer chose except to say it is NOT public domain. The only license we have is from the White House. -SusanLesch (talk) 17:49, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - A website's claim that all of its hosted content falls under CC is not compelling, nor does it have any affect whatsoever on the photographer's assertion of copyright. If the photographer wishes to release the images under a CC license, they need to either communicate that by publicly posting such notice for example, on a website that they control, or by contacting an OTRS volunteer with sufficient information to convince the volunteer that they are the copyright holder and that they are willing to license the work under CC.- MrX 16:18, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
Of course a websites claim as to how it hosts content effects the rights under which the content is released for everything on that site, that is exactly how free licence websites work. Alanscottwalker (talk) 02:17, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The photo is currently on the White House website [5] and their copyright/licensing policy is clear [6]. Apparently the White House hasn't heard that we've determined that this is a copyrighted photo that they shouldn't be licensing CC-BY-3.0. And of course what the White House says about the licensing has much more weight that anything we, or an anonymous OTRS ticket can have. See also [7] Smallbones (talk) 17:22, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. The United States Government states that the content is in the public domain, and that trumps (pardon the expression) any claim made in an OTRS ticket. If there is a bona fide dispute over the validity of that claim, it should be fought someplace other than via an anonymous, secret OTRS ticket. Coretheapple (talk) 18:02, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
    No, nobody placed this image in the public domain. Look at the license again. -SusanLesch (talk) 21:23, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. In the absence of a credible and specific claim by the photographer that image is licensed improperly by the White House, there is insufficient reason to delete these files. Concerns about the reputability of the president himself are irrelevant. Deli nk (talk) 20:44, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

If multiple OTRS agents and Wikimedia Legal consider the original request valid then we have no choice than to keep the images deleted here.--Denniss (talk) 20:57, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The US government pays for the transition activities of the President-elect.[8] Moreover, there is no reasonable doubt let alone "substantial doubt" about the public release that all content on the White House site has is under free CC licence.

  • Note: Doug also took this picture which was taken from the WhiteHouse facebook feed during the inauguration, Doug did not seem pleased that his White House image was taken from Wikimedia instead of the WH but he did not mention anything about licensing in his post, are we really making a mountain out of a molehill?, his only issue perhaps was that in that Presidential/VP portraits, his name was not tagged as the Author (mainly because his name did not appear in the exif so there was no way of knowing who took that image at that time)..If thats the issue, it can be rectified by him being tagged as the author and possibly the license changed to a more acceptable, cc-by 4.0 instead of public domain. --Stemoc 03:07, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
    @Stemoc: If OTRS receives an acceptable license from the copyright holder (and one was specifically requested), then the files will of course be undeleted. Given the amount of time that has passed since the request was made, it seems unlikely. - Reventtalk 18:10, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Multiple OTRS agents continue to assert that these images need to remain deleted, and that Wikimedia does not have permission to use them. OTRS have been given ample opportunity to evaluate the situation and understand arguments presented here and elsewhere, and if they continue to object based on confidential information in the OTRS ticket then that must be allowed to stand. This is exactly what OTRS are there for, and they must be allowed to do their job. Until an editor is able get a signed release from the copyright holder (assumed to be the photographer, unless OTRS knows differently), and provide that to OTRS, this will continue to be the case. As I understand from discussions with OTRS agents in IRC, WMF Legal have evaluated the situation and are happy with OTRS' decision in this matter. TheDragonFire (talk) 06:15, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
@TheDragonFire: If I recall correctly they merely stated that the images were not in the public domain and failed to clarify if they were CC. As suggested above by Jonatan Svensson Glad under the user Josve05a this was probably due to COM:PRP, and not a thorough analysis of the licence. This whole situation also fails to explain images like File:Donald Trump at inauguration.jpg, which were purportedly taken by the same photographer. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 14:49, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
@Emir of Wikipedia: It doesn't 'explain' them because they were not mentioned in the ticket or the DR.... I did not, personally, go hunting for any other images by Doug Coulter on Commons. Feel free to open a DR regarding that image, however... the license is rather clearly wrong, and it's probably also a copyvio. - Reventtalk 18:11, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
@Emir of Wikipedia, Spellcast: I should note that Commons:PRP is policy, and is not just overridable. A ticket from the the photographer could easily constitute the significant doubt required under that policy and if you have OTRS saying so then that is fairly hard to rebut. I have however, had a discussion with Yann over IRC and that has created doubt in my mind that the interpretation of the ticket is correct and hence I'm stricking my !vote. OTRS needs to work this out amongst themselves. TheDragonFire (talk) 10:47, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
There is no substantial doubt, because despite the image being deleted here (based on whatever was misconstrued in a supposedly secret communication), it is still to this day downloadable publicly by the whole world under the written CC licence, and thus without doubt within Commons policy to say 'it's from that government website with that CC licence.' -- Alanscottwalker (talk) 01:37, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alanscottwalker: Please read meta:OTRS before scaremongering about "supposedly secret communication". I do believe that there is significant doubt as OTRS has been unable to verify that the license granted to the US Government was in fact the license claimed on the White House website and have explicitly requested deletion per COM:PRP based on confidential information in the OTRS ticket. Beyond that, no-one without OTRS access has been able to add much to the discussion than speculation. One OTRS member has expressed concerns, but OTRS are more than capable of discussing that amongst themselves. TheDragonFire (talk) 12:11, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
So you repeat there is supposedly secret information which deletion is based upon, yet you object to it being called supposedly secret information - that's not scare mongering that's just what it is. It remains that the file is downloadable by the whole world under the CC licence right now, there is no doubt about it, whatsoever. Alanscottwalker (talk) 14:46, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I can't really agree with the deletion, although I can't say why without discussing the content of the ticket. I will add a note in the ticket. I can add that, in my opinion, only a DMCA could invalidate the White House Copyright policy. This official policy trumps a private email (pun intended). Regards, Yann (talk) 10:18, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support So let me get this straight. The White House site explicitly says third party content is under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License unless noted. There is no note for this image. Then we have an email from someone purporting to be the photographer rebutting that license? If true, shouldn't that issue be between the photographer and the White House - NOT Commons - especially since the photographer did NOT make a DMCA takedown request. The OTRS team should have told the photographer something along the lines of: 'We are unable to determine whether your copyright claim or the White House copyright claim is correct. The Wikimedia projects, including Commons, are merely repositories which reflect existing information provided by reputable and reliable sources. And since an official government website claims this work is CC, any legal objections should be directed towards them." Spellcast (talk) 10:29, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Summary

This is going to go on ad nauseam, so I think it's time to slow down the pile on. Feel free to continue discussing above but please read the following before posting.

Statements by OTRS:

Statements by Administrators:

It appears as this summary is contradicted by the actual edit rather, we are proposing that the private photographer granted to the White House the right to sublicense these images under a Creative Commons license. That's what the White House's website indicates. I understand that the OTRS ticket refutes the public domain claim, but does it also prove that the photographer never agreed to let the White House sublicense these photographs (or never issued such a license himself)? I see no confirmation in the statement saying that is is not under CC. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 21:51, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Issue at Hand: COM:PRP, a Commons policy, states that where there is significant doubt about the freedom of a particular file, it should be deleted. OTRS has made it very clear that the images are not public domain, and that does not appear to be particularly in dispute. The point which the closing administrator will need to consider, is whether there is significant doubt as to whether the image is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License. Hence it should be noted that proof of an infringement is not needed. TheDragonFire (talk) 12:01, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

I don't have OTRS access but if the photographer explicitly rejected the public domain license but made no comment to the White House's CC-BY-3.0 license, then I find that very telling. It would only constitute "significant doubt" if the copyright holder gave any shred of evidence explicitly rejecting the CC license, but there doesn't seem to even be a mere claim from him that the CC license is wrong! Correct me if I'm wrong on that. Spellcast (talk) 13:31, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
I think the point is that OTRS cannot reveal if there has been such a claim or not, and continually badgering the volunteers to tango with their confidentiality agreement isn't going to get us anywhere. At this rate, OTRS will probably organise for this to be an office action and that will be the end of it. TheDragonFire (talk) 14:00, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Thus there is no significant doubt, pretending someone disputes a public and prominent licence - in private - is describing the very opposite of asserting or protecting a copyright over a work that is -- right this minute -- publically and prominently licensed for the whole world to download. Alanscottwalker (talk) 20:06, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
We are not concluding a lack of license due to the absence of a licensing email. We are concluding a lack of license based on substantive statements in the ticket. Once again, I cannot say more. It is very interesting and frustrating how community members take what limited statements OTRS agents are allowed to make and extrapolate from them whatever they please so long as it supports their view. At the end of the day, you have multiple Commons admins and trusted Commons editors who are OTRS agents universally looking at this ticket and saying "We must delete this." Is that genuinely worth nothing? ~ Rob13Talk 17:05, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

 Not done: I have to agree with BU Rob13. I have little to add to the statements already provided by Revent and Josve at the original DR and Revent’s talk page. I don’t think it’s healthy too let a situation continue in which volunteers are at risk off violating their confidentiality agreement because the statements of OTRS-agents are twisted/misused. The ticket itself creates significant doubt which is the threshold we have to apply, not explicit evidence that a file is a copyright violation. And I have to say, this discussion hasn’t exactly helped saving the files. Please realise (meanth as a general note since experience learns that resolving issue's witht hird parties becomes much harder when we have a heavy debate) that everyone can read this page and that certain comments make photographers more reluctant to help us out. This decision is final and I would like to ask everyone to respect this. --Natuur12 (talk) 18:14, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Tiven2240‬ identified this picture of a book as a possible copyright violation. But he or she is mistaken. The book itself -- and the cover art -- were published in 1924, and are therefore in the public domain. The picture was taken by me, and I signed the creative commons consent form. There is therefore no basis for deleting it.

--Bverter (talk) 02:27, 12 June 2017 (UTC) 11 June 2017

@Bverter: More precisely, Tiven2240‬ tagged it and Moheen Reeyad deleted it. Where was it first published, when was it published in the US, who wrote it, who illustrated or photographed for the cover, and when did they all die?   — Jeff G. ツ 03:08, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: The image is a photograph of two books together, one of which is apparently a first edition of a book published in New York in 1924.
@Bverter: You are incorrect, in that a 1924 work published in the United States is not necessarily in the public domain. The cutoff date is 1923, and will not start moving again until 2019. A 1924 US publication needs evidence that it was either published without a copyright notice, or a copyright renewal search. - Reventtalk 03:17, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

And with that, it pops up. Gregory Zilboorg, the translator, filed renewal R101210 on 22 October 1952. @Bverter: The US first edition will not enter the public domain (in the US) until 2020. - Reventtalk 03:39, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Dear admin, I do really appreciate the work done and the control by bots that regularly do to our addings at Wikipedia. However, I would ask for the undeletion of the above stated picture. Based on the image laws in Japan as well as the copyright laws of the 48 holdings groups, any fan attending a photo event who takes pictures of the idol with her and her manager's permission has the rights to use the pictures.as its own. He is the owner of these rights and neither the member idol or the management company shall make any approach regarding the picture since it has been done by a free individual. Since, in this case, I am the fan who took the picture with the permission, I would request the undelition and the subsequent reupload.

Sincerely,

Uri_91

I will re-upload it, it is my picture, I just want to make sure it won't be deleted. I can rename it if you wish but it has to be that photo. Why are you making this so insanely ridiculously difficult. 165.225.81.12 14:46, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

We are trying to protect the rights of the photographer and any other rights holder. Is it that difficult to send an email message from a specific address containing specific text?

Hi,

This was a picture provided to me by Mr. Suhail Galadari, who is in the picture himself and he owns all rights to the picture, hence I believe it is not a copyright violation in any manner. Kindly undelete the picture

Deleted by User:Krd with the following reason: Empty deletion requests log.

There were nominations on that day (example: Commons:Deletion requests/File:20151106 lyon301.jpg), so surely it can't be empty. Maybe it was emptied in error or the page history has the full page? 84.250.0.210 11:40, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

All the nominations have been processed and archived. So the log was indeed empty.

@Arthur Crbz, Jameslwoodward, Biewerlover: I am reserving judgement until the customer replies via email. That ticket does not specifically allege permission, so this request was premature.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:59, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
Jeff, I disagree strongly. The uploader, User:Biewerlover, put a cc-by-sa-4.0 license on the images. We deleted them because they appeared on the web site http://www.biewerworld.com/. We now have an OTRS e-mail coming from an address at that domain confirming that User:Biewerlover is the owner of the web site. Therefore, we clearly have permission via the original license from the confirmed owner of the web site. That's a lot more solid than many OTRS confirmations. .     Jim . . .

File:G. Hokken.jpeg and File:Jan van Bommel.jpeg

Please undelete those files. They are freely licened at Europeana by the municipality of Schouwen Duivenland. Acusing a municipality of copyfraud without any further evidence other than not knowing who the author is, is pretty much ridiculous. Since when don’t we trust official bodies who have the resourced too let an expert assess the situation before donating? For the attribution issue: please see Carl’s comment at Commons:Deletion requests/File:C.H. Linde.jpeg. Natuur12 (talk) 22:07, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Actually, I have found that Europeana's contributors have claimed the right to freely license images that they do not, in fact, have the right to. Municipalities have no reason to be copyright experts and as we all well know, many people believe that if you own a paper copy of a photograph, you have right to freely license it. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:53, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Is this merely your opinion or do you have evidence to back this up? (Not trying to be offensive, just curious too find out why you had a different experience with this source than I had.) Please realise that a municipality has many experts on board including people with legal expertise and that the source is financially supported by the EU. How can we, the commons novices actually know better than they? . Natuur12 (talk) 00:32, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
I can't cite cases, but I do know that I have run into this question with Europeana before. I doubt very much that Schouwen-Duiveland, with 33,000 inhabitants, has any lawyers on staff and certainly not a copyright expert. It seems very likely to me that someone decided to make publicly available a number of photographs from the municipal archive and did not consider copyright at all or, if they did, assumed, as many of our new users do, that the fact that the municipality owned the paper copy of the image gave it the right to freely license it. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:35, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
They have a pretty large archive and this page provides some information about the images in their archive. (They only donated a part off their collection via Europeana). They state here that not all images are available via their archive because they don't own the copyright which means they do research and not just drop every scan they have in a database without checking the legal status. Here they claim even more explicitly that they own the copyright of the images. Natuur12 (talk) 12:05, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
This allows me to Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. While I have no opinion on the trustworthiness of licenses on Europeana in general, I don't think it's reasonable to require much more than an explicit claim of copyright ownership and a clear sense that they know which things in their collection they do and don't hold the copyright to. Storkk (talk) 07:48, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
I'm still uneasy, but I withdraw my opposition. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:22, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

@Jjanhone: The page on Google Photos is not really reliable evidence that the copyright holder themselves actually released the image under that license... anyone could have created that page (see COM:License laundering). We need clear evidence that the license was granted by the owner. - Reventtalk 06:24, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
The Google account is owned by Heli Malinen. She works at Fitfarm marketing, see [10]. What kind of evidence do you suggest? An email from Heli from Fitfarm address to whom? What is the proper place to donate photos to Commons? Anyone can create a Flickr account too so that is no good either. --Jjanhone (talk) 07:32, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose You say that "Nancy Patterson owns the copyrights for all images posted on the Anthony Benjamin wiki page". That seems unlikely. These are a collection of art works and photographs. In both cases, owning a physical copy of the work does not mean that one owns the copyright. The copyrights almost certainly reside with the photographers and the artist or their heirs. In order for the images to be restored, the actual copyright holder(s) must send free licenses using OTRS. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:38, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
