Howard Marsh jpg, do not deleteEdit
Hello, I do not understand the issue with this addition to the Howard Marsh entry. He is my father’s uncle and this is his headshot given to my grandmother. There was no picture for him and we added it accordingly. Thank you, Gscimeca Gscimeca (talk) 13:32, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
- @Gscimeca: Hi Gscimeca, and thank you for replying. It is great to have that picture (I was on actually on my way to crop it when I decided to question it), and I do not intend to delete it. But as you did not take the photograph yourself, you cannot claim copyright, which is what it now says on the file. There is a very remote possibility that the photographer (or their estate) wants to claim rights to it. As this photograph was taken a long time ago (before 1923 I presume - does it have any date on it? You might have a good idea through the family line?) and as it was a publicity shot, it stands to reason that it was "published before 1923 in the US", which means it is now public domain in the US (see Commons:Hirtle_chart). However, if it is after 1924, other rules apply. Does it have any information on it about the photographer at all? I think we are safe sticking the PD-old tag on it, but having you here will make it a lot easier to determine! Thank you for any further info you have. Kind regards, -- Deadstar (msg) 14:10, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
Notable Dutch peopleEdit
Since you like portraits, you may wish to upload images from here photograph-album-dutch-admirers of Darwin. I would but I'm busy with the other book on the same website. Regards Broichmore (talk) 11:57, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
