Kendi Çalışmamın Başkasının Çalışması Diye Silme Adayı GösterilmesiEdit

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Argentina_Flag.jpg Dosyanın bana ait olduğunu teyid ederim. Herhangi bir vikimedia commons kullanıcısının şikayeti ile çalışmamın silme adayı gösterilmesine ve üstelik kendi çalışmamın bana ait olmadığı mesaj ile iletilmesi gerçekten üzdü beni. Tekrar ediyorum kendi çalışmam ve diğer bütün dosyalar benim kendi çalışmalarımdır. Dosyalarımı herhangi bir stock sitesinde kendi satışım dışında, satışta gördüğüm takdirde konuyu yargıya taşıyacağımıda iletmek istiyorum. İyi günler.

Another Work of My Own Work https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Argentina_Flag.jpg I confirm that the file is mine. I was really upset that my work with the complaint of any vikimedia commons user was shown with a nomination for deletion, and that my work was communicated with the message that my work did not belong to me. I repeat my own work and all other files are my own work. I would like to convey my files to the judiciary if I see my sales on any stock site except on my own sale. Have a nice day.

CC-BY-ND?Edit

Why CC-BY-ND is not allowed? Seems a bit too restrictive for me. Images with CC-BY-ND are allowed to be shared, even commercially. Image manipulation rights are nice to have but not necessary for free content.--Sinuhe20 (talk) 17:09, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

@Sinuhe20: Please see the classification of "Non Derivatives" as one of the "Restrictions which are not permissible" at https://freedomdefined.org/Permissible_restrictions#Non_Derivatives.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 17:26, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: So Wikimedia Commons is a platform for "Free Cultural Works" like defined by Erik Möller? I still think image manipulation should not be necessary for showing images in Wikipedia. Most users only want to see images, not manipulate it. With this restriction a lot of useful photos e.g. on Flickr can not be used, that's really pitty.--Sinuhe20 (talk) 18:57, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
@Sinuhe20: Yes, Wikimedia Commons is a platform for "Free Cultural Works" like defined by Erik Möller. See also Commons:Licensing/Justifications.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 22:15, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Looking for a WP decision makerEdit

Hi. I uploaded some figures, which were then deleted-

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_User:AWCzarnik

The artwork I posted is Public Domain and would benefit the article. I'm looking for advice as to who could make the decision whether or not to sustain the delete, and if not who has the authority to put the artwork back on the article.AWCzarnik (talk) 22:41, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

@AWCzarnik: Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by User:AWCzarnik is still open, and could be decided by a Commons Administrator any day now. Almost anyone can add the artwork back on the article, subject to consensus on the article talk page (see en:WP:BRD and en:WP:DR).   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 00:22, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

The UploadWizard and 1924 updatingEdit

The UploadWizard still lists 1923 as the cut-off year for public domain publication in the United States. The Wikimedia Foundation's Multimedia team would like to update the UW to reflect 1924 as Commons policy. I've posted about this over at Village pump/Copyright if anyone would like to bring up concerns, or if this is okay to proceed with. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 17:29, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

"Material in the public domain" needs important clarificationEdit

The section Commons:Licensing#Material in the public_domain lists copyright for various scenarios in the United State, including:

  • For works first published before 1978: until 95 years after the first publication (emphasis as in original)

However, this only applies if the pre-1978 work was published with valid copyright notice, as explained in COM:HIRTLE, Public domain#Published works and {{PD-US-no notice}}. I propose this line be modified to:

  • For works first published with copyright notice before 1978: until 95 years after the first publication

I'm open to changes in the wording of the proposed line, but a distinction between publication and publication with notice is essential. Objections? --Animalparty (talk) 20:26, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Arshile Gorky and other American artistsEdit

Arshile Gorky, Alexis Jean Fournier and other American artists who died in 1948. Is it possible to upload their work here? Sources say different things about it. ([1], [2]) --Dmitry Rozhkov (talk) 18:47, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

See https://copyright.cornell.edu/publicdomain . Basically, if it was published before 1924, it's in the public domain; if it was published after 2002, it's life+70; if it was published 1989-03-01 to 2002, it's copyrighted until 2047, and anything between 1924-1989 is quite possibly copyrighted, based on a complex set of rules that do not include the life of the author (unless they died after to 1977, in which in some cases means they get a full life+70).
Short answer, no.--Prosfilaes (talk) 23:43, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Game of Thrones and SlzaEdit
