Hi,
"Permission granted by Grieves Music, LLC for exclusive Wikipedia use." — that is not sufficient. They need to release it under a free license, which allows also commercial re-use and derivatives and needs to be send to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org . --Túrelio (talk) 09:02, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Understood, thank you for the clarification. --Does44 (talk) 23:08, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

BlockedEdit

 
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for persistently uploading media that is in violation of Commons' licensing policy, despite our warnings not to do so, and despite our instructions. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may add {{unblock|your reason here}} below this message explaining clearly why you should be unblocked. See block log.

This is to be seen in combination with the sock PapworthC. --AFBorchert (talk) 10:25, 22 September 2020 (UTC)


Unblock request granted

This blocked user asked to be unblocked, and one or more administrators has reviewed and granted this request.

Request reason: "I was unaware that having multiple accounts was a violation and I'd like to correct this and have one active account remain. I would like to remove the account PapworthC. This has been all under a misunderstood attempt to add an image that I own the rights too and was unaware of the process in getting an image approved. There is a bit of a learning curve. It has since been approved in Wiki Commons here:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Grieves-V2.jpg and is in good standing. --Does44 (talk) 18:45, 24 September 2020 (UTC)"
Unblock reason: "I've unblocked you as you went forward to resolve this (per ticket:2020092110013875) and as you are promising to operate with one account only. Multiple accounts are not per se abusive. However, re-uploading an already deleted picture through an alternative account is considered abusive and has normally the consequence that all accounts are blocked. Instead we expect you go through the regular channels (COM:UDEL & COM:OTRS) to clarify open issues such that deleted files can be properly restored. We go to great lengths at this media archive to make sure that all media are safe to be re-used. This must not be circumvented. --AFBorchert (talk) 22:37, 24 September 2020 (UTC)"
This template should be archived normally.

Understood. Appreciate the help here. Thank you. --Does44 (talk) 22:44, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Good to see this resolved! BTW, please fix the description of File:Grieves-V2.jpg where you state “Picture via Grieves website exclusive permission for Wikipedia use granted by owner”. This is in contradiction to the {{Cc-by-sa-4.0}} license. This is not an exclusive permission for Wikipedia. The CC-BY-SA-4.0 license grants this permission to anyone, even for commercial purposes as long as the terms of the license are met. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 22:49, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
Will do AFBorchert, I understand the conflict there. However, looks like I'm still blocked from editing that file File:Grieves-V2.jpg. Could I ask for any insight on the best way to move forward in reestablishing editing privileges there as well? --Does44 (talk) 22:58, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
You should be free to edit. You were possibly hit by a Autoblock but those expire within 24 hours and I do not see any active autoblock concerning you. Make sure that you don't login with the other blocked account as this would trigger another autoblock. BTW, if you edit at the English Wikipedia make sure that you understand and follow the terms of use regarding paid contributions (section Paid contributions without disclosure). See WP:PAID for more information. This is not a problem at Wikimedia Commons per COM:PAID but in the Wikipedia projects. --AFBorchert (talk) 06:37, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Great all seems to be working and File:Grieves-V2.jpg description has been edited. Thank you for the TOS heads up, I was just looking at that and realizing that all of this may have been for naught. Regardless gained a ton of insight and appreciate your help with everything. --Does44 (talk) 21:00, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing the image description! I would recommend to open a discussion at Talk:Grieves where you can tell why File:Grieves-V2.jpg should be favored in comparison to File:Grieves 2014.jpg. But before you do this you should put a statement per WP:PAID on your user page at the English Wikipedia. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 21:30, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
