Thanks for uploading File:Ivan Stamboliev.jpg. This media is missing permission information. A source is given, but there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license. Please provide a link to an appropriate webpage with license information, or send an email with copy of a written permission to OTRS (firstname.lastname@example.org). This also applies if you are the author yourself. undeletion here, providing a link to the File-page on Commons where it was uploaded (
Hi Спасимир, the issue with the images I nominated for deletion is COPYRIGHT, not project scope. If you, personally, are the author of the image (meaning that you personally held the camera in your hand, aimed it at the subject and clicked the button), then it is your "Own work" and you are the copyright holder. But for anything that you are not the copyright holder, we need one of two things: (1) either an exact source and proof that it is public domain (either because it is so old that the copyright has expired or because as a matter of law it is ineligible for copyright) -OR- (2) a statement of permission from the copyright holder. (The copyright holder is the person who held the camera in their hand, aimed it at the subject, and took the picture. Just because something is in a library does not necessarily make the library the copyright holder unless the copyright was transferred to them.)
I looked through your uploads and noticed several that are lacking. For example, File:Ivan Stamboliev.jpg credits "Личен архив", which I see is the name of a book. But it doesn't give any basis for believing that the license is valid. Did the author of this book or the photographer of this image agree to the license? Another is File:Ботеви чествания в село Скравена 01.jpg. If this is from 1906, then it's almost certainly public domain. It needs to say that - not an obviously incorrect Creative Commons license. The same goes for File:Ботеви чествания в село Скравена 04.png. --B (talk) 15:51, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

- Hello Jeff G., if there are photos that violate copyright, they have fallen from Flicker, which happened in the past. And I'm so sorry, I have not been transferring pictures from there for several months now, and I do not think so. Otherwise I am contributing with author photography and video as well as one of the most successful collaborations in Bulgaria - with Bulgarian Archive State Agency. Thank you for the notification.--Spasimir (talk) 16:34, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
