File:Participation Party.jpg

In some countries witch include Japan and South Korea, escheat copyright works became public domain. --Sharouser (talk) 17:23, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

If there is an exclusion in the local copyright law that is not implemented into our copyright templates, it should be discussed in COM:VPC before posting here. If it is already implemented, please point out appropriate template (or exact paragraph in the copyright law if you need help to find it; or court cases). The {{PD-textlogo}} rationale was rejected in the Commons:Deletion requests/Files of Pipenavis. Ankry (talk) 06:30, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Template:PD-South Korea contains escheat cases. (There are exceptional cases. Property rights are to belong to the state according to provisions of the Civil Law and other laws upon the death of a copyright owner without heir or, in the case of a legal person or organization, upon its dissolution. )

File:WCRA special train - Cheakamus Canyon. (34473269966).jpg

Those who review flickr images should not do so robotically, should exercise some measure of common sense. Some recently uploaded flickr images will appear to have a license problem, due to a typo, or some other kind of trivial problem. Those images should not be robotically deleted.

The following images, were all uploaded to flickr, by a uploader who says they took the images themselves, who then offered them under a free license. In years past the only free license flickr offered regular uploaders was {{Cc-by-2.0}}. Traditionally they only allowed a limited number of institutions, like museums, to mark their images as public domain.

However, in recent years, they have allowed regular uploaders to mark their images as public domain.

This should have been good news for us. Unfortunately, someone took an interpretation of this change in licenses on flickr's part, and has a robot mark the images as suspect, and demand proof that the public domain license is believable.

I looked at a lot of these images, and saw ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to doubt that this flickr contributor was operating in good faith and that all these images were in fact taken by the uploader.

Whoever added the burden of extra work to those of us who upload flickr images does not seem to have considered a simple easy way to clarify that the images seem to be good faith images, taken by the flickr contributor.

All these images should be restored. Geo Swan (talk) 14:38, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    • Is this a ruling, on high, from the WMF? If not, how was this decided?

      When I saw flickr made a less restrictive license available I changed the license on all my images thinking it would make it easier for other people to re-use them. How wildly counter-intuitive that choosing a less restrictive license should make it harder to re-use one's images.

      You seem to be saying every flickr contributor, who thinks a public domain mark makes it easier to re-use their images, is supposed to somehow figure out that they need to supplement that with an OTRS. Geo Swan (talk) 16:55, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I may in fact be incorrect, but my reading of what Geo Swan wrote is that there is no reason to doubt that the images fall under the second half of your inclusive or statement. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 16:57, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
    • I sent the flickr uploader a flickrmail, saying:
You have uploaded many fine images... thank you very much.
You placed a public domain mark on some of them, giving permission for them to be widely re-used... again, thank you very much.
I uploaded a couple of dozen of them to the wikimedia commons, a couple of weeks ago. I was very surprised to see someone had deleted them. Another person told me that the commons
"...can only accept images licensed under Public Domain Mark 1.0 if ... if the author on Flickr has specified that they grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law."
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Undeletion_requests/ps#File:WCRA_special_train_-_Cheakamus_Canyon._(34473269966).jpg
Would you consider placing a note to this effect on your profile?
Thanks again for uploading fine pictures!
Cheers!
In their gracious flickrmail reply they thanked me, and said I had understood their intent perfectly, and that they would try to add a note with the permissions necessary to re-use his images.
Their flickr about page now says:
"I use the Public Domain category in all the items that I upload. They are mostly photographs taken by myself or by members of my family that are no longer alive. It is my intention that anyone who wishes to use any of my uploads in another context should be free to do so without recourse to me. It would be nice if the pictures were credited if they are my or my family's photographs but I don't insist upon this - my only objective is to put items that interest me into the public domain for the enjoyment of others who might share my interests."
Restore please.
I looked at COM:PDM, that Jeff G. linked to. Geez. We've got to have some way to include images where the flickr uploader is obviously a good faith individual who has only uploaded their own images. As I said above, individuals who choose a PDM, instead of {{Cc-by-2.0}} are doing so because they think a freer license makes their images easier to re-use, not harder. Geo Swan (talk) 05:18, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
The appropriate Flickr license for that type of thing is {{CC0}}, which is how you place your own works into the public domain. The public domain mark is actually meant for marking *other people's* works. This is per Creative Commons' guidance. I tend to agree that using that mark on your own works indicates pretty much the same thing as "I place these into the public domain", which we would normally accept, and should be fine -- however the appropriate Commons tag for those is {{PD-author}}, not the PD mark of Creative Commons. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:21, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
@Clindberg: Thanks.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 17:04, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
@Geo Swan: Have you talked to such individuals about this?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 17:04, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Sorry, I am not sure I understand your question. Are you asking how much effort I have made to communicate with flickr contributors over what their licenses mean?
  • In 2009, when I uploaded flickr images one at a time I took an extra 30 seconds to leave an explicit thank you on the flickr page of every image I uploaded, and a link to the images commons description page. I did this for about five years. During this period lots of people replied graciously. Three people were upset. I explained that there were circumstances where the commons community might agree to a courtesy deletion, even though our flickrreview robot had confirmed they were properly licensed. I explained that deletion was not up to me, but rather the community. And I offered to initiate the deletion discussion, and tell them where it was, so they could weigh in.
  1. One adult declined my offer, told me how cross she was, but decided to simply amend the licenses of all her images, so people would no longer have permission to use them in future.
  2. The individual who partially succeeded in winning courtesy deletion was a student who went on a field trip to an Inuit community on Baffin Island -- either Pond Inlet or Pangnitung. She said she was too young to understand what the license meant, and now thought she had made a mistake to have uploaded some images of children. The community deleted the images that included the children, and kept the rest.
  3. The final individual did not win courtesy deletion. His request was complicated because (1) his anger made him go ballistic, accuse the WMF of intellectual dishonesty, and actual theft; (2) Other commons contributors had uploaded about 400 of this guys image, over the years - but he had also started his own commons ID, and had personally uploaded 3 or 4 dozen images here. This completely undermined any claim that he didn't understand the licenses he was using.

    It seems my polite thank you prompted him to count how many of his images had been uploaded here, and it passed some kind of threshhold that triggered an extreme over-reaction.

    When he realized we weren't going to agree to let him claw back the images he said we had completely ruined photography for him -- a hobby he had enjoyed for over forty years, and on which he had spent tens of thousands of dollars. He said he would use his flickr ID to warn the rest of the flickr community how they too were at risk of having their images stolen by commons contributors. He did put up some kind of note on his main flickr page. But a week or two later his flickr ID was shut down. I think his efforts violated the flickr terms of service.

  • So, if you are asking whether I have ever communicated with flickr contributors over what the licenses they chose really meant, the answer is Yes, I have done that, a lot. I've also reached out to some flickr contributors who had uploaded good images of topics we really needed images for, and asked them to consider changing the licensing on those images to a free license. I didn't get any angry responses. I think a few people agreed to change their licensing.
  • My own flickr about page is the one I drafted in 2009. It predates flickr adding additional licensing options. I guess it is overdue for an update. But I think it shows I have made an ongoing effort to communicate with flickr contributors over their licensing choices and what those choices mean. Geo Swan (talk) 02:10, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support as per Geo Swan. Yann (talk) 17:30, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment Jeff G. offered their opinion of what the flickr contributor had to do for these images to remain here. I drew the flickr uploader's attention to this discussion. The flickr uploader complied with the request. I request anyone who concluded their attempt to comply with our rules fell short, to explain how their efforts fell short. Geo Swan (talk) 17:01, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
@Geo Swan: WCRA special train - Cheakamus Canyon. is still showing "Public Domain Work", expressed as "Cc-public domain mark white.svg Public domain", which is a mark, not a license, and thus unacceptable on Commons. The appropriate license which matches William Davies' expressed intent is "Public Domain Dedication (CC0)", expressed as "Cc-zero.svg Public domain". Please note the differences in the icons and links. I would encourage him to change his Photostream's license en masse to "Public Domain Dedication (CC0)" by selecting all at Flickr: Organize your photos & videos, dragging up, and then clicking "Permissions / Change licensing".   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 08:09, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Let's not make good faith flickr contributors jump through hoops -- hoops they don't understand.

Some regular people find the details of the free licenses we aim for here, overly complicated, bizarre. I am concerned that we risk frustrating those good faith flickr contributors, when they have clearly expressed their intent, to throw their hands up in frustration, and change to "all rights reserved", because we are so hard to please.

My OTRS from 2009, when cc-by-sa was the free-est license choice flickr provided, said that, without regard to the license on my images on flickr, I place them all in the public domain.

Flickr makes periodic changes to its user interface. I know they made at least one that made applying a license change to all images an order of magnitude more complicated, and time consuming. Jeff's suggestion? I am afraid our flickr contributor might find the same result I did, a year or three ago, if they can follow those instructions. I experienced a long, long wait, as flickr tried to assemble an internal list of all my images, prior to changing the license, followed by its link to my computer timing out -- and none of the licenses ended up being changed.

So, in this particular case, I recommend restoration of the images, in light of his or her clearly expressed intent. Geo Swan (talk) 17:23, 16 October 2018 (UTC)


 Not done: I'm sorry. PDM is not an acceptable license here as it is not a legal instrument. This is long standing Commons policy ratified by the community in COM:PDM. Good faith or not our hands are tied by both precedent and by the community's currently accepted will. If the author was to change the license on Flickr to CC0 this would not be in question and I would undelete them immediately. As it stands there is just nothing we can do. --Majora (talk) 13:55, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

As an OTRS agent (verify), I will investigate the undeleted media and make sure that the permission is sufficient to keep it (rights on media work + depicted work, FOP, copyright owner, country specific restrictions, etc.). I will also update the license (if needed) and add the appropriate OTRS template.
If you want, you can apply {{Temporarily undeleted}} on the media page to make sure a follow-up is done.

Hi there,

I tried uploading the official headshot to the chief content officer of Cartoon Network, Rob Sorcher. The image was removed from his wikipedia page. This has full permission by Rob Sorcher. Is there a way to add this back on to his page?

Restore Files: File:E. cutleri 001.jpg, File:E. cutleri_002.jpg, File:E. cutleri_003.jpg, File:E. cutleri_004.jpg

I received the below recommendation because I forgot to include the OTRS pending template:

You forgot to add an {{OTRS Pending}} template. I could restore it and add one. However if this is to be a free image with permission from the copyright holder, it would be better to add it direct to commons, to save someone having to move it later. You can do that at c:Commons:Upload, and don't forget the OTRS pending. Ronhjones (Talk) 20:26, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

If you grant me this request I will add the OTRS pending template to the files E. cutleri 001.jpg, E. cutleri_002.jpg, E. cutleri_003.jpg, E. cutleri_004.jpg.

Wkraft33, this will now take some time to be processed. The current backlog in permissions-commons queue is 14 days. If the permission is found valid by our volunteer email team, the file will eventually be undeleted. In the meantime there is not much we can do. De728631 (talk) 19:13, 25 October 2018 (UTC)
I thought by referencing the OTRS pending allowed the use of the pictures until it is determined the permission is valid or not. Is my understanding incorrect? Wkraft33 (talk) 13:54, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
The OTRS pending reference is only for original uploads and needs to be attached at or shortly after the upload. Once a file has been deleted and/or the permission email was sent only then, you'll have to wait your turn until it gets processed. Also, the OTRS pending flag will not grant an infinite time of use for such files. If a file has not been assessed after the current OTRS backlog period, it will automatically be set up for a timed deletion. De728631 (talk) 19:37, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

Re: Charles Cajori submission:

I am Barbara Grossman Cajori the widow of Charles Cajori and the executor of his estate. I have sole responsibility for the reproduction rights of his work and any other imagery relating to him, including personal photographs.

Regarding the painting, Epistrophy ll 1998-2000. I take the responsibility to give permission to use this image in the Wikipedia entry. It has been used for an exhibition announcement (2004) and is in the public domain.

File:Alter_Globus_etwa_19xx_-_Afrika.jpg

Das Bild wurde von mir persönlich erstellt und unter CC0 (da ohne Schöpfungshöhe) veröffentlicht. Es zeigt einen alten Spielzeug-Globus in meinem Besitz.
Da ich gern wissen wollte, wie alt das Ding etwa ist, fragte ich auf Wikipedia:Auskunft, "in welcher Zeit (von-bis) diese Grenzverläufe etwa gültig waren".
Daraus entwickelte sich eine für mich hoch interessante Diskussion, die in beindruckend begründete Analysen mündete,
und in deren Verlauf ich um immer wieder neue Teilansichten des Globus bzw. der abgebildeten Grenzverläufe gebeten wurde.
Vorläufiges Fazit/Fazite: A) Für Europa sind ziemlich genau die 20er dargestellt. Der Rest der Welt ist dagegen schon längst in der Nachkriegszeit angekommen.
B) Der Globus zeigt die Welt aus amerikanischer Sicht um ~1948. Insgesamt alles ungenau bis schlampig und in Europa falsch.

Per Mail erfuhr ich von einem Löschantrag. Begründung "abgeleitetes Werk von Kunst".
Dem Löschantragsteller hatte ich per Mail erklärt, dass nur künstlerische Werke unter einem Copyright stehen,
und dass ein Spielzeug wie dieses weder "Kunst" ist, noch eine Schöpfungshöhe hat.
Trotzdem wurden aber alle Bilder/Ausschnitte mitten in der Diskussion "Schnellgelöscht".

Da dieser Globus dank der Expertise unserer Wikipedianer inzwischen der wohl best-beschriebene Globus seiner Zeit ist, und es in Commons kein verleichbares Bilderset gibt,
denke ich, dass wir sowohl die Bilder, als auch die Doku erhalten sollten :-) Gruss, --Markus (talk) 18:01, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

The picture was created by me personally and published under CC0 (because without creation height). It shows an old toy globe in my possession.
Since I wanted to know how old the thing is, I asked Wikipedia: Information, "in which time (from-to) these borderlines are valid were".
This led to a highly interesting discussion, which led to impressively well-founded analyzes,
and in the course of which I was asked for new partial views of the globe or the depicted borderline.
Preliminary Conclusion / Conclusions: A) For Europe are pretty much the 20s shown. By contrast, the rest of the world has long since arrived in the postwar period.
B) The globe shows the world from the American point of view ~ 1948. All in all inaccurate to sloppy and wrong in Europe.

By mail, I learned of a deletion request. Reason "derived work of art".
I had explained to the request for deletion by mail that only artistic works are copyrighted, and that a toy like this is neither "art" nor has a level of creation. Nevertheless, all pictures / excerpts were "quickly deleted" in the middle of the discussion.

@Blakeboard56: Policy requires that the actual copyright holder, usually the photographer, must send permission to use it with a free license using OTRS. The current backlog for OTRS is 168 days so it may take a while before you get a response, OTRS depends completely on volunteers who work as hard as they can. For Wikipedia, see w:WP:COI and w:WP:PAID. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 07:11, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

The reason was No FoP for single pieces of artwork in Austria. The image shows three stickers on a lantern pole in the street, e.g. public space. Acc. to Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Austria it does not fall into architectural works (left column), but into other works (right column), where two-dimensional works of visual arts is explicitly allowed (and open in scope). If the nominator is right with the single piece of artwork, than a sticker is explicitly allowed. But the image showed only some stickers without any intent of art.

File:Font Awesome 5 brands usb.svg

This file was deleted by User:Túrelio for being identical to File:USB icon.svg. However, it is clearly a different icon with rounded corners and shorter, thicker strokes (you can see the deleted icon here). What's more, the deleted file was part of the Font Awesome icon set, which have consistent spacing that allow them to be used interchangeably in templates (e.g. en:Template:Fas) without needing to adjust spacing. Even if a Font Awesome icon was identical to another icon besides differences in the whitespace, it would be worth keeping for that reason alone. --IagoQnsi (talk) 19:09, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

File:Pavlichenko in a trench.jpg

I pre-uploaded this item with a deletion tag so it could be deleted in the future, mistakenly thinking copyright had not expired yet (I based first publication to 1943...and if that were true, with and extended 70 years to find author it would be copyrighted much longer) There was a bit of confusion: while we now know that the photograph is by Ozersky, per the PD-Russia-1996 template it is PD because the was originally published anonymously or under a pseudonym before January 1, 1943 and the name of the author did not become known during 50 years after publication. (I recently found out it was published in Smena No.12, June 1942, and later in KP among other publications - all without author known.) Author became known in the 21st century (after the URAA date, and after the 50-year deadline, and because it was first published before 1943 it was not given an extra 20 years to find the author). So bascially, this one-year difference and means it was not given a 20 year extension to to find out who the author was, and after the copyright expired the author was made public. I apologize for the mistake, and request undeletion now since the item actually is public domain in both Russia and the US.--PlanespotterA320 (talk) 23:25, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Please restore files uploaded by Catsquisher

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Numerous image files that I uploaded years ago have recently been deleted or are pending deletion. All of the images I’m referring to are from utility patents. When I posted the images years ago I used a licensing template that indicated that the drawings are in the public domain because the content of utility patents is typically not copyrightable. The template was later modified to claim that the exemption from copyrights only applies “to images published before March 1, 1989.” That change to the license template may be a reflection that the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals ruled in Yardley, 493 F.2d 1389 (C.C.P.A. 1974) that "Congress has not provided that an author inventor must elect between securing a copyright or securing a design patent." While the consequence of that ruling is that authors/inventors of design patents could assert copyrights on their designs, the ruling did not extend to utility patents. The ruling acknowledges that design patents are granted for the novelty of ornamental design (potentially copyrightable), whereas utility patents are granted based on functional novelty (not copyrightable). All of the patent drawing images I have uploaded are from utility patents that made no copyright claims, and are thus within the public domain. Therefore, I request that they be restored to the creative commons. Catsquisher (talk) 03:20, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

I think that you need to bring that up either on the talk page of the template, or on COM:Village pump/Copyright (or better bring it up on one and then link notify about it on the other). This isn't something that should be done on the file per file basis. ℺ Gone Postal ( ) 09:51, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

I was in contact with the author and the photographer. They both have given their consent for the image to be published on Wikipedia. The copyrights of this image are therefore in line with the Wikipedia copyright rules. That is why I don't see any reason why the publication of the photo shouldn't be accepted. Thank you.
