Files uploaded by Apedroa

Hi,

the file I'm requesting to be undeleted is of public domain, and can be found at the "Arquivo Público do Estado de São Paulo" (São Paulo Public State Archives): http://www.arquivoestado.sp.gov.br/site/acervo/repositorio_digital/deops_ficha.

Kind regards,

Antonio Pedro --Apedroa (talk) 17:28, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

@Apedroa: Those URLs are not specific enough. Exactly how many we duplicate your results?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 21:57, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
@Apedroa: Let me quote the deletion reason from the DR: "Historical documents. Proper author/date/country of creation information should be supplied to determine copyrights status."
Unless these information is provided, the documents cannot be restored. And: "publicly available" is not the same as "in Public Domain". We need some evidence for the latter based on copyright law. Ankry (talk) 23:10, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Hi, the files are under Brazilian information access law (Law nº 12.527, 18/11/2011): http://www.planalto.gov.br/ccivil_03/_ato2011-2014/2011/lei/l12527.htm. Any person or press company can access or request access to the information that is archived under public administration offices. I personally went to the place mentioned (Arquivo Público do Estado de São Paulo), took the picture of my grandfather file (João da Cruz Costa is my grandfather), which is, by the way, from more than 50 years ago, and then placed here. The information is not classified nor restricted by Brazilian Government or law. Furthermore, the picture is mine.

--Apedroa (talk) 23:48, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

@Apedroa: You still did not provide proper author/date information for the original works in the archive that you photographed, nor a reason why they are in the public domain. I assume they originated in Brazil. Please read COM:DW.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 11:18, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Please read the law (Law nº 12.527, 18/11/2011): http://www.planalto.gov.br/ccivil_03/_ato2011-2014/2011/lei/l12527.htm.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Being publicly accessible is not the same thing as being freely licensed or in the public domain. A library book is publicly accessible, but is often still under copyright.

File:Carátula de la Caja de 7 Wonders.jpg

Archivo en cuestión: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Car%C3%A1tula_de_la_Caja_de_7_Wonders.jpg Hola, estoy llevando a cabo esta solicitud debido a que se me ha borrado una fotografía que he subido a Wikimedia. El motivo del borrado indica que yo he violado las normas de copyright cuando ni mucho menos lo he hecho, ya que esa fotografía la he tomado yo mismo con el teléfono móvil, por lo que la foto es mía. Además, ya es la tercera vez que se me borra una fotografía de la caja de este juego siempre alegando que he incumplido las normas de copyright, cuando las tres fotografía que he subido han sido tomadas por mi. Quería indicar que esta foto la subo para un trabajo de facultad por lo tanto agradecería mucho que la foto fuese restaurada para poder completarlo.

File:Ireland road sign RUS 064.svg

DR at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ireland road sign RUS 064.svg. Removed in 2013 because "This sign does not exist in Ireland.". Now it is being requested here: Commons:Graphic Lab/Illustration workshop#Missing Irish speed limit signs. http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2012/si/331/made/en/print shows it does exist.. and already did in 2012. Why was it deleted in the first place? - Alexis Jazz 04:02, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Alexis Jazz, I don't think this is the sign that the cited request is looking for. The subject image is a direction priority sign -- it is a mirror image of File:Zeichen 308 - Vorrang vor dem Gegenverkehr, StVO 1992.svg. The sign that is requested above is a 40 k/m speed limit sign.

As far as I can see, the "wannabe expert from 2013" was probably correct. That's not surprising, since he has many thousands of edits concerning road signs. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:31, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

@Jameslwoodward: Okay. But how could I have seen that? This is not visible for a normal user, is it? - Alexis Jazz 04:51, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

@Alexis Jazz: I can confirm that this is not a speed limit sign. This is a square blue sign with two arrows. You did not provide any reason why this one should be undeleted. All reasons provoded above are invalid in this case. Ankry (talk) 07:37, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

@Ankry: How or where could I have seen this is actually a square blue sign with two arrows? The filename is/was misleading, but how could I know that? - Alexis Jazz 08:05, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: What is the reason you need to see it? Do you have any reason not two believe two Commons admins? You can ask another admin if you need. Nobody is blaming you that you requested the deletion. We are just telling you that this is likely not what you wanted. Ankry (talk) 09:50, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. Evrik (talk) 21:38, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

None of the filenames listed above appear in any of the first four tickets, which grant licenses for various other files. The last ticket lists all three of the named files, but it does not contain a license.

The reason B dash uses is invalid.

File:Palmers-Hochhaus, Jänner 2018 02.jpg

The deletion of this picture is based on the assumption that a fragment of the picture with advertising makes it deletable. This kind of mindset would have really interesting consequences on Commons if applied correctly, so I'd rather ask for a second/third opinion on the deletion of this picture. Braveheart (talk) 12:38, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Good deletion @Braveheart: In this case, not only a fragment but an essential part of the image contained copyrighted parts, namely the election poster that covered about one third of the entire office block. Judging from your description at the file page, the main purpose of the photograph was even to depict the building in that very state. So one could not argue that the poster was an accidental, minimal part of a photograph that was otherwise only meant to show the building. Please read Commons:De minimis where examples are given for the amount of copyrighted content in an image that may be tolerated. As a rule of thumb, though, where non-free content plays a major role in the composition of a photograph or other file, we cannot host it without permission from the original copyright holder. De728631 (talk) 12:56, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
So renaming the picture to "Giant meadow with a building in the background" would solve this case? I'm not quite sure why we have this level of guessing intentions of the uploader. If that's the case, it's better for future uploads to just obscure the actual intentions, categorise it as "Meadows in Austria" and save yourself the hassle of being judged and second-guessed. Braveheart (talk) 13:05, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
No, it's not about the name of the image but the content, so renaming won't solve the issue. The problem here was that the non-free campaign poster dominates the entire image, so unfortunately you were not in a position to publish it. You're free to take a photo like this for your own personal use, but you can't licence it under Creative Commons or any other free types of free licence when the image itself is largely based on another work that is not yours. De728631 (talk) 13:24, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
On another note, Austria does have freedom of panorama, but I doubt that this temporary campaign poster would have counted as a "permamently" displayed artwork. De728631 (talk) 13:28, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Please understand that although you do not like it, de minimis situations are very subjective and situational. As it is, the first thing that the eye sees here is the campaign poster. That is both because its colors contrast with the rest of the image and because it is somewhat incongruous -- having a poster that fills a third of the side of a large building is unusual. With that understood, if the large field in the foreground had giraffes grazing in it -- or something else unusual -- then one might have made a better argument that the poster was de minimis. That would have been a difficult decision. As it is, this one is obvious. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:21, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi,

I originally asked the person whom I had assumed was the owner of the image, Michael McGettigan, for permission to use his photo. He agreed. But it turns out that, once he saw the image on the Ruin (punk band) page, he insists that it is my image.

Thank you for considering undeleting the photo.

File:Kardos Klára 1970 körül.jpg

The photo I wanted to publish is an ID card photo, taken from a memorial card (in quite a poor quality), which was distributed during the funeral ceremony of the depicted. 1. Because of the genre of the photo I cannot see any copyright infringement. The photo was legally brought, and the photographer is untraceable. 2. The goal of the publication is the same as originally: set a memorial for the depicted. It would be very sorrowful if we could not do is because of untraceable copyrights.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is you who are wasting the time of others here. You should get your story straight. In the image description you claimed that you were the photographer. Above you say that the image was given to you by the subject and that you own the copyright. Since the copyright is almost certainly owned by the photographer, not the subject, all of what you have said is probably incorrect.

As clearly stated at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Omid Homayoun.jpg, the image appears at http://www.oneman.gr/samba-magkes/athens-mundial/omid-homayoun.2902975.html with an explicit copyright notice, "COPYRIGHT © 2018 ONEMAN. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED". Therefore policy requires that the actual copyright holder, which is almost always the photographer, must send a free license using OTRS.

File:Tien.jpg

This file was deleted in 2016 with the justification that it had no permission, I saw on English Wikipedia that this file was used by w:en:User:Pyvanet (Sema/Pyvanet~commonswiki) who is the owner of the website Art-Hanoi.com, if this image was linked to that site or is equal to this image then they are in fact the author. Note 📝: I am only requesting the reviewing administrator to check if the original upload to English Wikipedia was Pyvanet as he would be the actual author of the image. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) ("The Chinese Coin Troll" 👿) (Articles 📚) 14:53, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

[...] You are NOT allowed to alter images in any way that would change the identity of the item. [...] You are NOT allowed to place your logo or other advertisement on the images.". If you believe that the photo is public domain for some reason, please clarify why. Thuresson (talk) 03:58, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
But Pyvanet is the owner of Art-Hanoi so the original author of the image, the copyright notice only applies to others taking material from his website but not himself. Plenty of people have donated their copyrighted materials to Wikimedia Commons while at the same time put "All rights reserved" on them on their own websites. I only asked for an administrator to confirm the original author at the English Wikipedia. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 10:13, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@Donald Trung: Perhaps it would help if you could clarify how you know that this user owns the website. I can’t see anything on the userpages, user talk pages or the website to confirm it is the same person. In answer to your question, the move log in the description says it was that user who uploaded it to Wikipedia. Green Giant (talk) 10:56, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@Green Giant: Pyvanet stated it here, and I believe that they had later e-mailed the OTRS to confirm this for some files, but not all files. Several of this user's files were uploaded with missing permission as he included the links 🔗, but excluded to declare that he is Sema on them. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 12:04, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@Donald Trung: OK, thank you for the link. However, I don’t see a reciprocal confirmation e.g. a note somewhere on Art-Hanoi.com saying "I am Wikimedia user Sema or Pyvanet". Digging through OTRS, I found ticket:2007112910002633 which was sent from a different email address, not the one on Art-Hanoi.com. I’ve searched that website (including through the Internet Archive back to versions from 2014) but have not found any sign of a link between the website owner and the Wikimedia user. The only thing I can suggest is sending an email to Art-Hanoi.com, asking them if they could confirm the link. I do note that the deleted image shows possibly old coins but I’m not sure whether they are definitely PD. Green Giant (talk) 14:34, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@Green Giant: coins are 3D objects so even if the coin itself is in the public domain, photographs of coins are copyrighted, but you can close this request and I will ask Sema to confirm that he's Pyvanet. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 18:56, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

  2. You are not allowed to set a license for a picture when you are not its author. Only the author can; and they should do on public souurce-site or via OTRS

File:Mark Rutte standing near Plakkaat van Verlatinghe together with Barack Obama and Wim Pijbes.jpg

I wanted to upload this photo https://www.flickr.com/photos/minister-president/13376704883 (CC-BY), but couldn't

as it was deleted with as reason that a serie of other images of this photographer Dave de Vaal (working for the government for defense) are released under CC-BY-NC. Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_in_Category:2014_Nuclear_Security_Summit/Defensie

As this picture is clearly released by the minister-president as CC-BY, I dont see any reason why this picture as well as the other pictures are deleted because other pictures are released under another license. --Hannolans (talk) 16:25, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Hannolans: I don't think Minister-president Rutte holds the copyright for this photo, so he can't release it with CC-BY. Dave de Vaal may work for the defense department, but I suspect this photo was not made as a work for hire for Rutte. You would need to ask Minister-president Rutte for COM:OTRS. It's probably easier to ask Dave de Vaal for (OTRS) permission for the images you want to use. - Alexis Jazz 05:06, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Sigh. No, no, no. Asking the minister president to mail OTRS is utterly ridiculous. Asking Dave de Vaal also won't do us any good because he isn't the copyright holder but his employer is. You will need someone with the authority to license property of the department of defence. The channel of Mark Rutte is maintained by the Netherlands Government Information Service.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Alexis Jazz:this was not for hire but as employer. According to this article in the Defense department magazine - he made those pictures as: "Sergeant-1 Dave de Vaal van het Mediacentrum Defensie", as sergean-1 he is an employer of the Dutch government and as such the Dutch government owns the copyright. The department of general affairs of the minister president is responsible for all media distribution of the dutch government including the media channel of minister-presient Mark Rutte ('Dit is het officiële fotokanaal van de minister-president, bijgehouden door de Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst') and allowed to license those pictures under Creative Commons license and has a policy to do so whenever possible. --Hannolans (talk) 09:54, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
@Natuur12: @Hannolans: It wasn't clear to me this channel is not maintained by the minister president and/or his party but by the government. And it wasn't clear to me if Dave de Vaal was doing this as part of his duties or not, as you mentioned he works for the defense department. As far as I can tell it's all okay though, so no OTRS is needed. - Alexis Jazz 23:06, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

This particular image was probably requested because the "Plakkaat van Verlatinghe" (Dutch declaration of independence) has recently been chosen as a showcase item for The Netherlands in a television program. (or something to that extent: w:nl:Het pronkstuk van Nederland) How can I see which filename corresponds to which image? If there is no easy way to see that, I vote to undelete everything.

Even under the overly hypothetical interpretation of URAA, this is PD as Hungary had an existing copyright relation with the USA from 1923 (actually a bilateral agreement was from 1912) onwards. In the most extreme interpretation copyright will have expired in 2000. -- (talk) 16:37, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
@Clindberg: Could you nudge me? If my interpretation of how pre-URAA bilateral agreements on IP work, the URAA was intended to continue to respect those agreements such as the one with Hungary, not overrule them. This would mean that a copyrighted work in Hungary should be copyrighted in the USA post-URAA, but also that a Hungary PD work simply remains PD in the USA, the agreement being bilateral. Naturally I may have easily missed a key point somewhere in the URAA logic I was following. -- (talk) 22:56, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Reason: No evidence that the Flickr account has problem. The Flickr user is not in bad Flickr users list. --B dash (talk) 02:13, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

@Túrelio: Would you care to comment?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 02:26, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Several of the deleted files had in their EXIF data a full credit to FOX/name of photographer. For example, File:Gordon-ramsay-4 (5034954776).jpg and File:Gordon-ramsay-15 (5034955830).jpg have"(C) Patrick Wymore/FOX". --Túrelio (talk) 08:30, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
And this raises more doubts concerning this Flickr account: even if user gordon-ramsay-4 has got a permission from Patrick Wymore/FOX to publish this photo under CC-BY they failed to provide proper attribution as required. So we have still copyright violation. We generally do not rely on Flickr-declared licenses when we doubt that the Flickr account operator is not the photographer (maybe except accounts that are crearly operated by some companies/organizations). We expect the license to come directly from the author or we should get an COM:OTRS permission. Ankry (talk) 12:47, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Zahoray János.jpg

Per Commons:Deletion requests/File:Zahoray János.jpg and the consensus in the DR, PD-old-70 applies. Photographer is only known as the company "Stockmann and Drescher". There has to be significant doubt for this to be deleted, significant doubt has not been shown by anyone.

As for references to {{PD-old-assumed}}, that would assume a known photographer with an unknown death date, plus that particular (Jcb created) template should be marked as a draft, it is not supported by policy or guidelines or consensus. -- (talk) 21:49, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - no evidence that this would be anonymous work. The template clearly states that you cannot assume out of nowhere that a work would be anonymous, just because you don't know who the author is. As for {{PD-old-assumed}}, you requested at the AN that a DR would be started, but apparently nobody felt like starting one and your request got archived without further action. Jcb (talk) 22:12, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Re: "The template clearly states" It is astonishing that you see no conflict of interest problem with being the sysop that forced the PD-old-assumed on Wikimedia Commons without a consensus, or policy, the sysop that sysop-only protected the same template and was the person that created it and removed the draft notice, and now you see fit to be the sysop that is closing DRs where the template has been mentioned. Your actions are pointy and highly confrontational.
It's a judgement problem very close to the issue you created yesterday by blocking a user that you had argued with, rather than asking any other sysop to look at the dispute.
Your opinion is based on nothing. The photographer is unknown, and the 70 year rule applies. I am not going to prove that a chocolate teapot is not in orbit on the other side of the sun, neither am I required to "prove" that the photographer is unknown for this photograph that I can not even see or search for. As you have deleted the image page, I do not even know what was said there. However it is clear that in the two relevant DRs, you are ignoring the points made and reaching for reasons such as URAA when you are logically wrong.
A friendly recommendation, avoid sysop actions where you are compromised by your involvement. Thanks -- (talk) 22:24, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Thomas_Crapper.jpg

Photograph was most probably made in the UK. So the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 is applicable. Unknown photographer; photograph published at the time. To my best knowledge, this means: copyright has expired 70 years after publication. As Crapper died in 1910, this expiration took place somewhere in the last century. Vysotsky (talk) 16:21, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - There is no evidence that the photographer would have been unknown. The UK has a term of 70 years after the death of the photographer. 1910 is too recent to assume PD-old. Jcb (talk) 16:35, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Certainly before 1910. This photograph was most likely published in 1902 ("according to Getty the photo was in a brochure from 1902" -see link above), but the photo probably originates from an earlier date, if we look at Crapper's physique -1890s at the latest. Moreover: Crapper retired in 1904. I checked all large image databases in the UK (BL, Wellcome, etc.) and some US databases (LoC. Smithsonian etc.) -to no avail. So not even is there "no evidence that the photographer would have been unknown": the photographer is unknown and will most likely remain unknown. No copyright infringement.

Undeletion request for a file on Wikipedia Ligure

A few days ago a file has been deleted from Wikipedia Ligure: File:Firefoxinzeneize.jpg

As you may know, Firefox is an open project. Mr. Alessio Gastaldi, an IT specialist, has worked for a couple of years on a Firefox project, namely translating Firefox into Genoese (called zeneize), so now the Genoese/Ligurian version is officially available worldwide and can be downloaded at any time free of charge. See for this purpose the link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ (downloading under the name Ligurian). Mr. Alessio Gastaldi is known on our Wikipedia Ligure with the user name GASTAZ. He has finished working on his project last year. Results are published here: http://firefoxzeneize.altervista.org/ . Current updates are available on https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/ligure-zen%C3%A9ize-language-pac/

As Mozilla allows advertising like using Firefox banners and linking to it, I hereby request undeletion for the file Firefoxinzeneize.jpg Luenséin (talk) 14:13, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Current FF logo versions are CC-BY licensed; just trademark-based restrictions apply. This logo, however, is based on old version of FF logo. Ankry (talk) 16:22, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

TIMELY OBJECTION (to : @Ankry: @Jeff G.: and @Jameslwoodward: Mr. Alessio Gastaldi was undoubtedly authorized to work on and publish a Genoese version of Firefox as you can clearly see on the Firefox download page of all Firefox versions: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ (choose Ligurian). Mozilla/Firefox is an open source project as they maintain. He was undoubtedly authorized to use the Firefox logo on his web page http://firefoxzeneize.altervista.org/ in the past three years, and there you can also download his software as well as his add-ons complying to the Mozilla/Firefox policy. The Mozilla/Firefox policy is clearly stated on their FAQs at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/trademarks/faq/ (and I quote): Can I put Firefox banners on my website? Can I link to you? Thanks for your support :-) Of course you may. Our style guide has additional assets you may need: Firefox logo Firefox wordmarks Thunderbird logo Thunderbird wordmarks'.

Awaiting undeletion Luenséin (talk) 15:44, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Again, the Additional Guidelines at https://design.firefox.com/photon/visuals/product-identity-assets.html are quite clear that most modifications and many uses are not permitted. This is inconsistent with the CC-BY declaration, but we must respect it. Also, as I noted above, they clearly exempt logos from the free software license that applies to the software itself. This is not strange -- WMF does not freely license its logos either.
At https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/trademarks/faq/, cited above, it clearly says:
"Can I make a t-shirt/desktop wallpaper/baseball cap with the logo on?
Sure, if it's just for you, or if it's for others and no money or other consideration changes hands (although see the question about high-res versions)."
That's an NC restriction, which we do not permit, and:
"Approval is not required for the following fair uses of the Mozilla marks:
1) screenshots of our software or our web site in magazine articles or reviews of our software
2) the inclusion of Mozilla browser windows in screenshots of other web sites for non-commercial uses such as web site reviews..." [emphasis added]
.     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me)
@Jameslwoodward: Just a correction addendum: "WMF does not freely license its logos either" Since a few years (3-4) ago, WMF does license all its copyrightable logos under CC-By-SA 3.0. --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 22:04, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
I can't provide a cite for that, but it is a technicality. WMF's trademark policy statement makes it clear that WMF logos are not freely licensed -- for example, you cannot make and sell tee shirts with any of the logos. While this relies more on trademark law than copyright, it has the same effect. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:18, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
Unrelated to this unreq, but here’s a cite for you ;) https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/10/24/wikimedia-logos-have-been-freed/ --Jonatan Svensson Glad (talk) 16:00, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

ONE MORE OBJECTION (to : @Ankry: @Jeff G.: and @Jameslwoodward: I have read what you wrote above and it seems to me that there are some clear contradictions ("WMF does not freely license its logos either" and then "WMF does license all its copyrightable logos under CC-By-SA 3.0". So now I ask you all: what is your stance on all the firefox logos I see everywhere on Wikipedia, for example on Wikipedia Italia under Mozilla Firefox at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Luens%C3%A9in#File_tagging_File%3AI_spozo%C3%A9i_Inprom%C3%ACssi.jpg ? Luenséin (talk) 16:35, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't see how the discussion and file you cite have any relevance to this UnDR. As for the more general question, I don't think we can keep any Firefox logos here -- they don't pass my simple test of whether the licensor allows you to make and sell tee shirts with the image on them. However the fact that there are other problematic images on Commons does not affect this decision. We have more than 40 million images here. Undoubtedly several hundred thousand of them should not be kept. We delete around two thousand images every day, but we have a long way to go and the backlog is growing. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:44, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
@Jameslwoodward: selling tee shirts is more a problem of trademark (a kind of non-copyright protection), not copyright. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:20, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
That raises an interesting question. Commons says that its images must be free for any use anywhere by anybody, including commercial use. Since trademark law precludes commercial use, it amounts to the same thing as an NC license. Why is it that we do not host images with an NC copyright license, but will host images with a trademark based restriction that amounts to exactly the same thing? .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:10, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
@Luenséin: Current FF logos are declared on this page to be CC-BY 3.0/MPL 2.0 licensed (trademark restrictions apply, but this is irrelevant for us). The logo you wish to restore is based on older FF logo. You need to prove that the older FF logo is also freely licensed as well as modifications introduced by Alessio Gastaldi are. No clear evidence for those till now. Ankry (talk) 17:21, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

File:TOM Exterior view 1 - PHO10793983 - copyright IOC.jpg

Good Morning,

At this point, I do not understand why the picture was deleted. It is not a picture take from the website Lausanne Musée.ch. reason why it was blocked.

I am actually working at The Olympic Museum and this picture was shot by our company photograph. The picture has been send to Lausanne Musée.ch in purpose for them to make our promotion.

When I arrived on The Olympic Museum French page of Wikipedia, I have seen that it was an old picture on the right box. It was still the old museum before its renovation dating from 2014. I thought that it will be better to upload a new one from the company to assure a representative view of how the museum looks today.

I assure you that the pictures was taken by our company in purpose of promotion.

Lausanne, 16.02.2018 I assume, me, Flavien Dérupaz, having written this message to upload again the picture and assure that it is belonging our company.

File:Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame Winners™.jpg

I am requesting undeletion of the image because the name of the program enjoys a copyright but the image itself does not. I created the image and the company that owns the copyright of the program name (Palladium), which the image is about, readily allows use of the image (in its entirety) as its use promotes good strategy management practices (which is in-line with the mission of Palladium).

To summarize, the name (Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame for Executing Strategy™) enjoys a copyright but the image does not. As such, the image is not a violation of Wikipedia's policies.

Thanks.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The first question is whether the logo is within the scope of Commons. We do not keep logos for people or organizations which are not notable. In the case of authors that means that they should have an article on Wikipedia or, at the very least, have some hits on Google. We might also expect to see an entry on Amazon. None of that is the case here.

Second, policy requires that for logos, the actual copyright holder, which is sometimes the creator and sometimes the person or organization for whom the logo was made, must send a free license using OTRS.

And no, Josve05a is not a "proffesional" [sic], but he is one of our most experienced colleagues and has acted entirely correctly in this case. Please refrain from making ad hominem comments. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:47, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Files uploaded by Davezelenka

Why was this and my other Christian artwork deleted? Strange. They have been used and accessed for free for years. This artwork is available copyright-free everywhere on the Internet. --Davezelenka (talk) 23:29, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

This artwork is mine and should not have been deleted. It is available to users anywhere on the internet at no cost. --Davezelenka (talk) 23:28, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Please undelete. This file is my own work and is available copyright-free everywhere. Thank you.--Davezelenka (talk) 23:30, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

When did it begin that artists can't upload their own work to Wikimedia? I have sent an email to Commons:OTRS. They say that there's a 23 day wait. How do I "prove" it's my own work? It's not available for sale anywhere on the Internet. I provide it under CC share or which ever one I set it to originally 10 years ago. So, all artwork must have ownership proved through Commons:OTRS before it can be posted on Wikimedia? --Davezelenka (talk) 05:10, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

@Davezelenka: Yes, if it's been deleted via a DR.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 05:16, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Additionally, On the Commons:OTRS page, they state: When contacting OTRS is unnecessary: "I created the file myself. it hasn't been previously published, and I am the sole owner of its copyright." Just follow the instructions found on the Commons:Upload page, unless the image/ file is of outstanding or professional quality or there is some other reason your authorship may be doubted.

I created the painting myself. It hasn't been previously published, and I and the sole owner off its copyright. So, it seems that it is unnecessary for me to contact Commons:OTRS and that I'm wasting their time. This is the same for all three of the files listed above. Why do you doubt that I am the creator and owner of the copyright? --Davezelenka (talk) 05:17, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First, according to the file description, at least one of the paintings has appeared at http://www.interactive-earth.com/artwork/christian.htm -- now a dead link. The first of them appears without a free license at http://worshipquestministries.com/blog/2013/12/29/in-the-name-of-the-father-you-and-holy-spirit. Therefore, a free license from the creator using OTRS is required. More important, however, is the question of whether these works are within the scope of Commons. There is no WP article on Dave Zelenka and all of the Google hits appear to be self-promotion, not independent reviews or mentions. We do not keep personal art from non-notable artists. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:17, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Many people have reproduced the "Baptism of Christ" image, in print and on the Internet. If you Google Image search "Baptism of Christ," you'll find that numerous people have it posted on their websites. I have had numerous requests over the years and they always receive a "Yes, it's yours to use and reproduce." Besides this painting, I am not notable. However, this painting is widely used and has been reproduced over the years. I have made no money on it and want it continued to be available to anyone, which is why I am making a silly effort to keep it on Wikimedia. I don't market myself and try to keep a low profile. The only reason I have a personal website is to make a very small living. People post their photos on Wikimedia, what's the difference with a painting? It's a representation of something that happened long ago, an age without cameras. Here's just one more example of how it has been used over the years: https://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/slides/Bx_BaptismoftheLord.pptx. It's been reprinted in a church in Ireland. Should I compile a list of the requests? Additionally, in regards to self-promotion: if self-promotion was my goal, why wouldn't I upload all my paintings to Wikimedia. I have many paintings that I have done over the years. I have only a few things uploaded within the Commons. Providing Baptism of Christ was about offering a freely available resource to others. I am also a United States Finalist in Wikimedia Science Competition (File:Earthquakes_in_Cascadia_Subduction_Zone.jpg). Should this artwork be deleted as well? I provide other items as well under CC ShareAlike. --Davezelenka (talk) 02:06, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

@Jameslwoodward: The images were uploaded here by Davezelenka in 2007. I doubt you can point out an older version in the Internet. It is very likely that all external uses originate from Commons. However, we have still a COM:SCOPE problem here. Ankry (talk) 08:29, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
I note that Ciell has restored two of these after receiving a license via OTRS. That takes care of the license issue, but the question of scope remains open. I see nothing on WP or Google that suggests that this artist is anywhere close to our standard requirement for notability, which usually includes works in galleries or museums and critical reviews in recognized publications. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:58, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi, the permission is indeed complete: sorry I didn't look at the DR. I restore the deletion template on the images, since I have no opinion on the Scope of these images. Ciell (talk) 09:49, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

It has been restored. Thank you. Please do not remove it again. I think the scope issue has to do with certain people not believing that modern Christian art is of any educational value. So, let me get this straight, in order to upload artwork to Wikimedia, I have to be notable? If you wish to remove it, then you should also recommend that my other artwork be removed, such as: File:Earthquakes_in_Cascadia_Subduction_Zone.jpg. This file recently became a finalist in Wikimedia's 2017 Science Competition. Philosophical differences should not play a role in scope. There is a theological story being told in the Baptism of Christ. Learn from Agustin what the waters represent. Learn from the Aquinas what the Trinity means. Find out what the Plurality of persons means in regards to the manhood and Godhead we see depicted in the artwork. There is a theological story being told. It is educational even if you disagree with the story. --Davezelenka (talk) 00:35, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Commons, and the world at large, makes a clear distinction between art and scientific illustration. Your illustration is excellent and like the many photographs on Commons, serves a distinct educational purpose. On the other hand, Commons has a clear policy of not keeping personal art -- that is, art from persons who are not themselves notable as artists. That generally means that their work must have been exhibited in museums or galleries or that they have had critical reviews in independent publications. You clearly do not qualify. Let me emphasize that this policy has nothing to do with the content of your work. It is easy to call out "prejudice" when the value of your work is questioned, but Commons policy applies to all personal art, no matter what the subject. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:08, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

The Baptism of Christ was provided to the Alamosa Christian Reformed Church for display in 2005 on "permanent loan." I certainly do not use the Commons as my personal gallery, if I did, it would have hundreds of pieces of art. The Commons has only received a few that I feel are important to be made freely available to the public. As a graphic designer, my work has been displayed in many locations over the years. By doing a brief search through the Commons, I see many, many pieces of art by non-notable artists. Are all of those on the list for deletion? If my goal was self-promotion, I would have tried to upload all my work long ago. You will need to explain how this work does not meet the "scope" of the Commons. If I am required to be notable, how do you define that? If you think this work is not educational, then you'll need to research the baptism of Christ and see if the elements in the painting are educational. The only reason I call "prejudice" is because I see no other reason why this work would be removed. Maybe I missing it, but I can't find where I am required to be notable to upload art nor how notable is defined. I have seven other mathematical designs that I've uploaded to the Commons (out of hundreds), should we remove those as well? In 2017, one of my related math/art films was accepted into 2017 Bridges Short Film Festival, but I'm still not notable. --Davezelenka (talk) 00:25, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Illustration of notable events fall within Commons scope, specially when no good photographs of those event exists. Illustration of historical, religious or fictional notable events aren't different from scientific diagrams.--Pere prlpz (talk) 18:53, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
That is generally correct. However, we have several hundred images by notable artists in Category:Baptism of Jesus Christ. There is no reason here to violate our policy of not keeping images by non-notable artists. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:59, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Leoncio-Diéguez Marcos.jpg

Dear responsible of Wikipedia Commons:

I write from the Conservatory of Music “Eduardo Martínez Torner”. Leoncio Diéguez was the first director of our center. He gives us his photography to put it on his Wikipedia´s article. The first time that we try to put his photography in Wikipedia Commons was the first time that we do this task so we didn´t know how we have to do it. In that moment we didn´t select the option it said that we have the rights of the photography. We didn´t understand why we have problems with this image, and we tried to put it on Wikipedia Commons again and again. Later, we read the instructions more carefully, and we understand that we must recreate the image and select the correct options about the rights of the photography of Leoncio Diéguez. So, please, don´t delete more this photography, or put you again.

Put another way, the official photos of the legislators in 47 states, including Washington, are copyrighted. Official photos of the other three states and of members of Congress are PD only if the photographer was an employee of the state or Federal government. Many legislators go to private photographers for their official portraits. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:54, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

If you wish to read over the many indications I'll list some of them below:
The last one clearly indicates that 1) Tomozaurus on Deviantart had the intention of the image being on wikipedia and 2) uploaded it himself. Checking the file page (linked above) shows that Tomopteryx was the one who uploaded it here. I think that's as good an indication as what is on the uploaders talk page User talk:Tomopteryx. IJReid (talk) 17:54, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
Also, what should be the final nail in the coffin of this, please look over this internet archive of his deviantart page https://web.archive.org/web/20141230065354/http://tomozaurus.deviantart.com:80/ Under the deviantID section, there is a bullet point that states clearly "Tomopteryx on wikipedia".

To be honest I have no idea why this image was kept when Commons:Deletion requests/File:Iranian Supreme Leader leading Eid al-Fitr prayer.jpg was deleted, but if Tasnim images with leader.ir watermark are OK now I request undeletion of all of them. - Alexis Jazz 01:47, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Alexis Jazz, Is there more than one? Please make a list. Regards, Yann (talk) 03:33, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
@Yann: Yes, I'm sure there are more. However, I cannot search deleted file pages. I have found the 5 files listed in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ali Khamenei in his office.jpg but there are probably more that were speedy deleted. I don't know if insource:"leader.ir" (maybe you first need to enable a deleted pages category, I don't know how it works) shows deleted pages for you, if it does that would be the list. - Alexis Jazz 04:16, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Why did you keep this image Dyolf77? If it is because of the Tasnim watermark, we just had this discussion on another DR. Images taglined leader.ir or president.ir do not fall under the Tasnim licensing scheme. Only photos directly by their photographers are under that license. That is the entire reason Tasnim is under a license review type situation. To make sure those images that are taglined as such are marked for deletion. INC also reviewed a bunch of president.ir photos that had to be deleted. See Commons:Deletion requests/Photos from president.ir. Apparently his sock reviewed this one. As far as I can tell, leader.ir does not have a Creative Commons license. --Majora (talk) 03:48, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
I was confused as well, but I had linked a DR that said the same thing and it was kept. - Alexis Jazz 04:16, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Hi @Majora:, in deed I thought the Tasnim watermark (logo on picture, not text) was a proof of CC license. I dont't now how to fix the issue here? I made a search on leader.ir to find the license they use, but found nothing. Do you propose that I renominate it for deletion? — D Y O L F 77[Talk] 16:18, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Three options that I see. Renominate it for deletion since leader.ir does not have a Commons compatible license and is likely All Rights Reserved. Speedy delete it as a type of license laundering by Tasnim which is why all Tasnim images require license review. Or, amend your close on the last DR and delete it that way. --Majora (talk) 17:45, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Portrait of President Barack Obama by Kehinde Wiley.jpg

The painting was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery, which is a branch of the United states government, see http://npg.si.edu/exhibition/obama-portraits-unveiled While working on this painting, the artist was employed by the government of the United States, and the painting is therefore in the public domain.Wmpearl (talk) 22:31, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Where does it say they were employed by the Government? It sounds like they were commissioned to paint the painting. Paintings can't be a work for hire under US law, so I would assume instead of actually hiring them, they would contracted to produce the work, and thus the paintings are copyright, a copyright that may stay with the painter or have been sold to the Government.--Prosfilaes (talk) 23:00, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

To clarify, I originally uploaded File:Ulmus minor 'Dicksonii'. Hilliers. 1990.jpg, Wikipedia did not receive the OTRS email from the copyright holder and so the image was deleted. I asked the copyright holder to send the email again and the image was restored. See thread here The IP editor you refer to is not me... we have shared interests and we collaborate on Wiki and by email regularly. If an Admin is able to see my IP (it's a fixed IP starting in 82.69.***.**), they will see that geographically they are some distance apart. @Jameslwoodward: left a message on my talk page about me supposedly using multiple accounts and I responded explaining I do not. Tom_elmtalk 19:19, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes, the uploader added it to the en-wiki page a few months ago. However, the uploader was not the author; he was an en-wiki editor who found an image he preferred to the available ones and worked to get permission to use it, and then uploaded it. No other editor reverted the change, so it was in use. It was deleted due to a licensing issue, which was fixed, then it was restored to the page. There must be something about the image better to their eyes, and we should not contest that opinion. It's possible that others may change the image in the future, but it should be enough to keep here. We aren't helping anything by deleting it. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:10, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

The "link to this page" is a permanent url for use as reference to the descriptive record.

Unlike the temporary link in your browser, this link will allow you to access, and reference, this page in the future." It is nothig more. It does not make the image free and it does not invite or allow users to treat the image as free.

  • Oppose. The photographer Basil Zarov died in 1998. The photograph is not free. Unfortunate as it may be, Library and Archives Canada has made clear to Wikimedia users that it does not offer its images under free licenses. The uploader contradicts himself, falsely claiming on the file page that the photo is under a CC license, and claiming here that it is in the public domain. -- Asclepias (talk) 15:30, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
It sounds like a 1956 photograph, with the author dying in 1998. That means that copyright will expire in Canada in 2049, and in the U.S. in 2052. The Archives page indicates that copyright was transferred to the Archives by the heir, and not placed in the public domain. The "open" access is just about whether the public is able to view the physical items at the library, and has nothing to do with copyright. Similarly, the link is just an invitation to link to the page, and not copy the work. The "terms of use" on the page mentions the copyright transfer, and that you must mention the Archives Canada. If that is the *only* term of use, it would be a free license. However, the overall site terms of use makes clear that commercial use is prohibited for works under copyright, unless otherwise specified. I don't think the "terms of use" section really specifies otherwise, so it's almost certainly non-free for several more decades. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:05, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Logo Festival de Cine de Sant Joan d'Alacant.png

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: This image is the official logotype of the "Festival de Cine de Sant Joan d'Alacant". It can be found free to download and use on its website, here: http://santjoanfestivaldecine.es/logos/

It is an own work from the team of the festival and I have their permission to uploading it. So, it is actually a free logo, not a non-free logo.

I'll appreciate it would be restored. Thanks.

Leszek Magalas 2017.jpg

File: Leszek Magalas 2017.jpg The photo of Professor Leszek Magalas was first published on web page of AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków, Poland (low resolution mode) on December 13, 2017. See: http://www.agh.edu.pl/typo3temp/_processed_/csm_prof._Magalas_01_2794c85f22.jpg "The photo was duly signed: Photo from the private archive", i.e., the photo was provided personally by prof. Magalas. OmegaMS also uploaded the second photo from the same web page. Both photos were provided by prof. Magalas with clear purpose to be published on the occasion of Zener Prize Award. This photo (Leszek Magalas 2017.jpg) is to be uploaded to the article entitled 'Zener Prize' (English version) and relevant articles in few other languages. I hope that this explanation justifies the use of this photo in wikicommon. It cannot be excluded that this image might be slightly modified to find the best fit to a very small space available in the article. Clear personal agreement from prof. Magalas was obtained to proceed with the publication. Do you also need an e-mail from prof. Magalas? (he is the owner of his photo). Otherwise please advise clearly what kind of justification do you need. OmegaMS (talk) 20:28, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Per Commons:Licensing, we need photographs to be licensed on very liberal terms. While it may be legal to use on the article, the photo is not "free" unless explicitly licensed that way, so per policy we would still delete it. Per Commons:Copyright rules by subject matter#Press photos, media photos like that are typically not licensed well enough. If we know the photographer (or the subject got copyright transferred to them, which is not automatic), the copyright owner would need to follow the COM:OTRS process in order to confirm the license for such photos. Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:46, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Please note that you say "he is the owner of his photo". The owner of a paper or digital copy of an image is rarely the owner of the copyright and rarely has the right to freely license it as required here. Either the photographer will have to send a free license using OTRS, or Prof. Magalas will have to send a free license together with evidence that he has the right to do so. In almost all countries that would require a formal written transfer of copyright or free license from the photographer. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:45, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Manila skyline day.jpg

Skyline images are not covered by FOP restrictions. Skyline images containing buildings still under copyright rather falls under de minimis, as they are all incidental. Lack of FOP is not a good reason to delete skyline images.-TagaSanPedroAkoTalk -> 08:35, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support as per TagaSanPedroAko. Yann (talk) 09:52, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I disagree. The test of de minimis is that the copyrighted content is dm if an average observer would not notice if the copyrighted content were removed from the image. In cases where almost everything shown in the image is copyrighted, that is obviously not possible. While any one of these buildings is certainly dm, removing all of them would leave us with a white page. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:55, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

You may use censoring out the buildings to test the DM argument if they are such, and, I support undeletion under that argument (as what you pointed, removing X (the copyrighted buildings) would make the file useless). I agree the buildings form the elements of the skyline and are an unavoidable feature. This can be listed as another example of use of DM as an argument for undeletion. This can be undeleted, with addition of the {{De minimis}} tag after the image license. -TagaSanPedroAkoTalk -> 01:17, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I have no opinion here. Another opinion is welcome. Ankry (talk) 10:14, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The buildings occupy approx 40% of the image, I think that is too much copyright content, if the photographer had included more water and sky - it might be a different answer - but the way it's cropped, highlights the buildings. Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:53, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

I can't see the image, but if the image is not focusing on one particular work (i.e. building), then it should be OK. Even if there are lots of copyrighted buildings in there. We have *always* done things that way -- there is no copyright on the overall selection and arrangement of the buildings, and photos of a wider subject which do not focus on a particular item should be fine. Skyline photos of a city should never be a copyright problem -- I would be very surprised to ever find a copyright case that ruled otherwise. If every building is de minimis individually, there is no copyright owner who could bring a copyright infringement lawsuit. This is also the "incidental" form of our rule, which has backing in French and U.S. court cases. I think we should be able to point to an actual court case where a photo like that was ruled a violation, in order to delete here, and I don't think any such case exists.
