Thanks for the information. You're absolutely right. The best thing is to remove the file from Commons. It's not all that important, since it's not a genuine illustration. Personally, I'm deleting from the article Les Grandes Espérances. Best wishes, Robert Ferrieux
Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit
Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit
- ⧼Wikibase-terms/Clindberg⧽: العربية, български, Deutsch, English, français, italiano, македонски, മലയാളം, 日本語, русский, svenska, اردو, 中文
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.
For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 1 will end on .

Hopefully you took my comment in the spirit it was meant, as a 'teasing' joke. What you said was quite apt, just a bit of a 'wall of text'... I try to keep things friendly.. the OP's comment was rather not, so a bit of a digression seemed in order. Revent (talk)
- Oh, no offense taken ;-) That's hardly my worst example of a stream-of-consciousness wall of text reply on here either... I have some pretty long ones sometimes ;-)
this got archived within hours. :-( Missed it?
Philippines section on my FoP essay userspace pageEdit
Hello. Under my userspace essay User:JWilz12345/FoP#Philippines, is my interpretation of URAA correct? 95 years after completion date for copyrighted works that had US copyright restored in January 1996? Thanks for the response. JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 14:14, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
- Close. It's the earlier of 95 years from publication, and 120 years from creation. Defining "publication" for sculptures and paintings is difficult, though if they were put on permanent public display before 1978, that generally counted. We often do assume publication around the time of creation, unless something is documented to have remained unpublished or private to the author for longer. Works published 1978 or later can have different terms. The U.S. started using 70pma (well... 50pma at the time, but later increased to 70pma) as its general term for works created 1978 or later, but various grandfather cases make it more complicated for works created before 1978 but only published later. See Commons:Hirtle chart. Couple of other notes -- photos of architecture are not derivative works in the U.S., so for FoP purposes, the building only has to expire in the Philippines for photos of it to be OK; there is no URAA issue other than the copyright to the photograph itself (which is usually licensed). Also, works which were "simultaneously published" (within 30 days) in both the Philippines and the U.S. avoided the URAA, because the U.S. was allowed to treat those as "United States works" and not apply the URAA. That status is usually almost impossible to prove, but once or twice we've been able to show it for news photographs. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:39, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
