Response to Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Caracal RooikatEdit

The use of national emblems is typically subject to certain restrictions outside the scope of copyright law designed to prevent disparaging or confusing uses and to avoid misrepresentations. Using a national emblem in a context where the display of the emblem might be construed to falsely imply an official endorsement is also generally forbidden. Any such usage restrictions are beyond copyright law, though. They are designed to prevent fraudulent abuses of emblems, in particular to prevent using them to imply an affiliation with or an endorsement by an official body when there is no such affiliation or endorsement. Merely showing such emblems (for instance, in a Wikipedia article) is, in our understanding, not subject to such emblem or insignia laws.

Please see answer in section below. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:54, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Response to Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Caracal RooikatEdit

Wow. Im going to keep this short. These images of badges belong to an era in South Africa (pre 1994) that is the apartheid era. None of these images have copyright as the new national government of national unity redesigned emblems for the new defence force. There is no copyright in South Africa on this emblems and they are now purely historical in context. Please refer to South African or Military History wikipedians about something you obviously do not understand.

These files are definitely not your own work. If such symbols were exempted from copyrights, proper license tag should be used. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory/South Africa. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:39, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Response to deletion request of photo of "Elío - El Señor de Elío.jpg" "Vizconde de Val de Erro (1775).jpg" "Vizconde Valderro.jpg" "Escudo Marqués de Gongora.jpg" "Marqués de Vessolla 02.jpg" "Vessolla Medallon.jpg" "Escudo de Duque de Elío GdeE.jpg" & "Escudo Marques Vessolla.jpg"Edit

Hello there, I am Santiago Mendaro Elío, from Spain; the OWNER of all those historical coats of arms and all its copyrights, also the AUTHOR of all these final collage images, and the USER who has uploaded all the JPG files. Thanks.

Ownership doesn't assume authorship. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory for proper license tag(s). --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:18, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

"Ownership doesn't assume authorship" I don´t understand this issue. What do you need to know exactly ? or what can I do about this ? All those images are made from myself and they are not subject to copyright restrictions, so they can be used by anyone. The images are photos taken with my own camera in my house, and the drawings are made for me with a simple computer tool.

Scanning/taking photo of other work doesn't make you author of that work. See Commons:Derivative works. Most likely these coat of arms in public domain, but source information/(approximate) date of creation are needed as well as proper license tag. Again, see Commons:Copyright rules by territory for relevant country for proper license tag. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:41, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Ok, that´s very easy ! : photos and scans are taken from myself in my own house a couple of years ago from a book and two wall hangings which belongs to me (all those were my ancestors belongings) 1.- the book was made in 1775 and the title is "Inventario de Papeles y Escrituras de la Casa de Ayanz y sus Mayorazgos de Santamaría y Val de Erro. arreglados el Año de 1775. tomo 2" . This manuscript is in my private library, and there is also a scanned copy in the "Biblioteca del Arzobispado Pamplona" (I have include this info in the "Bibliography" and "References" sections in the articles) 2.- the wall hangings belongs to my family from several generations now (4 or 5) and probably were ordered and manufactured around end of XIX century.

You need to add such information into each file description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:05, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, but don´t know what kind of "proper license tag" is needed for those images, they are not subject to copyright restrictions, so they can be used by anyone.

Looks like these files should be in public domain by age. What is country of origin for books? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:05, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

The origin country of those books (manuscripts) is Spain (Europe)

Please read Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Spain. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:02, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

Done ! No problems.

Response to deletion request of photo of "Rosas de Paulo Sangiuliano.jpg" And file "Our Lady Terminator of All Heresies.png"Edit

I am Lucaspdantas, EugeneZelenko You are wrong, the file "Rosas de Paulo Sangiuliano.jpg" is the painter "Paulo Sangiuliano" and the name of the file already says the name of the artist, Just to be aware, I am the current owner of this work, I took this photo with my Samsung A3, it is absurd you mark it for exclusion, unless you misinterpreted it by not speaking Portuguese.

Ownership of physical copy doesn't mean copyrights ownership. Paulo Sangiuliano died in 1984 and Brazil protects copyrights for 70 years after. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Brazil. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:04, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

The Archive "Our Lady Terminator of All Heresies.png" was the one I did through digital art.

Deno logo File:Deno.svgEdit

Hi, I saw a notice of potentially deleting the media. Please remove the licensing notice. I am the creator of Deno logo (my Github handle is also @kevinkassimo, major contributor to Deno project), and it is released under MIT license (a highly permissive license). Proof could be found here: and I did not found an option to use MIT license during the upload process, so I chose CC0 for it. If you believe this is not the right license to use, could you help me changing it to MIT (since I am not very familiar with the Wiki software)? Thanks. Kevinkassimo (talk) 04:20, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

You could edit file description page and use {{MIT}}. Please also fill Source and Permission fields and refer to relevant pages in GitHub. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:26, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
--User:Veoturbex have helped :)

deletion notificationsEdit

I had always intended to have my uploaded images deleted, as I only needed them for relatively short periods of time to put together a project. That is why I rushed with many of them when it came to things like copyright. I am perfectly fine with them being deleted, if anything because I don't know much about copyright or wikipedia. Calvin Coolidge 2020 (talk) 11:59, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Your files were mostly nominated for deletion because of Commons:Project scope, not copyrights. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:57, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

This file is non-trivial corporate logo. Unless copyrights owner will make explicit permission it could not be hosted on Commons. See Commons:Licensing. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:00, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Fair use in Autocar CompanyEdit

Though this image is subject to copyright, its use is covered by the U.S. fair use laws, and the stricter requirements of Wikipedia's non-free content policies, because:

  1. Description: Logo of American truck manufacturer Autocar, LLC
  2. Source:
  3. Use in Article: Autocar_Company
  4. Purpose of use in article: To serve as the primary means of visual identification at the top of the article dedicated to the entity in question.
  5. Not replaceable with free media because: Being a logo, there is no uncopyrighted equivalent.
  6. It is a low resolution image, and thus not suitable for production of counterfeit goods.
  7. The logo is not used in such a way that a reader would be confused into believing that the article is written or authorized by the owner of the logo.
You should upload non-free media locally into projects that allow them, like English Wikipedia. See also Commons:Licensing. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:56, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

New User responding to deletion requestEdit

Hello. I am new to Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons. I see you requested deletion of several of my photos on the Tony A. Da Wizard article with the reason of "Promo photos. No evidence of permission(s)." I am not exactly sure how this all completely works yet but I can tell you there is nothing promotional in these photographs. I am not sure what "No evidence of permissions means but I am the copyright owner. I would ask that you consider withdrawaling your request for deletion because they do not break any guidelines that I am aware of. Thank you.

Please send authorship confirmation to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review. One of photos is Commons:Derivative works from album covers, so you'll need to get permission from copyrights holder. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:00, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Response to deletion request of photo of "Johan Berger Mathiesen."Edit

Hello. I see you requested that a photo I added to the page of "Johan Berger Mathiesen" (in Norwegian) be deleted. First of all, I want to stress that I possess an original of this photograph from the 1890s; and second, the only time it has been reproduced, to my knowledge, is in a book from 1915. I have thus been under the impression that the photo belongs in the public domain.

Please read Commons:Copyright rules by territory to check is true or not. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:34, 19 June 2019 (UTC)


Hello. I asked the graphic designer of the logo I submitted (found on the official website of the company) for a written autorisation to share it. Is it the right way to certify the correct use of a logo ? thank you for your help.

Sorry, I don't know German :-( Your user name and name on document are different. Document also contain images that could have different author.

... deletion request...voters list published in newspapers -- You could find proper license tag on Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Russia.Edit

> You could find proper license tag on Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Russia. I cannot. The case of official newspapers published content, not a creative content (not a story, poem or photo), with free public access (newspapers available at local libraries, issues older than 100 years).

The following tags might suite: {{PD-old-100}} {{PD-RusEmpire}}

but they do not cover the specific of the subject. I suggest new tags like Template:PD-RusEmpire-Newspapers

What tag should I use? Thanks

{{PD-RusEmpire}} is correct license tag. Formally, all files are official document, but there is no need for special tag for that. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:51, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Hippomenes photosEdit

Hi there - I'm concerned that some hard-to-get photos might get deleted following your proposal to delete: Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Hippomenes. I don't know much about the requirements for loading and describing photos and I suspect the uploader doesn't know either. So could you please be specific and in layman's terms about what is required. I'm very familiar with the content of two of them, and they seem legit for the reasons I've nominated on the deletion page (and i don't have reason to doubt the others which I'm not so familiar with). --Merbabu (talk) 01:48, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

From my new user page:

I am the author of these photos, in that I took the originals in the 1980s (two Sydney ferries, the view of Woolwich Sydney NSW from Birchgrove Sydney NSW, the interior of a Zimbabwean Vickers Viscount) on 35mm film and have been scanning the resulting negatives gradually over the last 9 months or so. I lived in London until 1983 before moving to Sydney, and regularly visited my childhood home in Zimbabwe around that time and since.

From my new user page:

Hippomenes is British-born (1954) Zimbabwean-educated (1961-1973) Australian-resident (1983-). Grandparents were refugees from Lithuania to UK in 1915. Father lived in UK retired to Kenya (1987-1997). Younger brother has lived in Brazil since 1977. I have been a mad-keen photographer since 1971, the first 33 years entirely 35mm format. As a result of all this I have a load of photos of a number of parts of the world, a lot of them 30+ years ago. I am finally in the process of scanning my way through the c10,000 negatives that this obsession has produced. I would like to upload interesting examples for which I am the author and for which I possess the original negative. I will obviously not do so if the Wikipedia attitude remains "delete all" rather than "what can we do to keep interesting photographs?". Hippomenes (talk) 03:42, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

I think authorship confirmation via Commons:OTRS is best way to confirm your authorship. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:59, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
We do not require GF editors to go through OTRS to confirm authorship of non-controversial photos with no reason to doubt their claims. Do not start now! Andy Dingley (talk) 12:01, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
Historical photos may be controversial, since many uploaders claims own work even for 100 years old works. Other example are sport teams photos. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:33, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Wrong file extension used on wikiEdit

I have used ogg extension instead of ogv on for file File:Infobot w Google Assistant.ogv that you have marked for deletion. There is currently an update pending.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Oort7 (talk • contribs) 21:15, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Reason for deletion request was Commons:Project scope, not file name extension. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:28, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
I thought that it was marked for deletion because it was not used on any page and it was because I have used wrong filename in the article. If it is not the reason, which one from Project Scope is it? Oort7 (talk) 14:45, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Unused one(s). --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:46, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
I see. So if it is now being used on could it be unmarked for deletion? Oort7 (talk) 20:27, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
Please mention this fact on deletion request page. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:06, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Re: File:School of Arts and Science, Uyo.jpg has been marked as a possible copyright violationEdit

Hello Eugene, as an alumni of the School of Arts and Science, Uyo, and duly authorized by the executive members of the alumni to create/publish the informational article for the high school, uploading and using that logo for that specific intent is in complete compliance. That logo was uploaded by a fellow alumni (Dr. Ime Okonna) to our alumni group Facebook photos page, I downloaded the logo from the Facebook photos page and I included the hyperlink to the Facebook page in the references section of the informational article I created for the high school. You can find the draft of the informational article here Draft:School of Arts and Science. Please undelete that logo. Thank you. Emman369 (talk) 18:16, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Please ask school administration/legal council to send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review and file undeletion. Otherwise you could upload logo locally to projects that allows non-free media, for example, English Wikipedia. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:32, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Villa Frohberg, WinterthurEdit

Eugene Zelenco: This is the second time you are questioning my copyright about a picture that was shot for me and has been published on Winterthur-Glossar since 2015. Here is the Link, once again (3rd picture from top): Eugene: When I read your history, it seems to me that you are clearly a bit "over-zealous" (to put it mildly). Where is the trust in the word of people who have an unblemished history? I find your insistence to be offensive, but if you continue to insist, I will send you copy of a personal email that I received this morning from Heinz Baechinger, who is the administrator of Winterthur-Glossar. He confirms that he personally shot that picture for me and gives me permission to use it.

A personal advice to you, Eugene: Don't try to be more catholic than the Pope and concentrate on issues that are clearly questionable.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Rudyernst (talk • contribs) 15:05, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, but Google Search link is wrong way to provide source information. page doesn't provide information about license and author.

File:Lloyd kaufman neon zombie.jpg File:Neon Zombie John Landis.jpgEdit

I made those pictures. And the usage of the magazine within these pictures is absolutly fine in this context. It is not violating any copyright law nor is the content problematic. It also makes sense in the context of the article because the mentioned magazine is a film magazine about popular fantasy cinema and both directors and producers are well known for their work in this specific genre.--Filmjunkie137 (talk) 19:26, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Please read Commons:Derivative works. Magazine covers are not necessary to illustrate articles about people. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:02, 16 July 2019 (UTC)


In the German wikipedia it is common to recreate the logo of companies. It is absolutly fine under the very tough German copyright laws. Many, many Wikipedia pages for big corpoartions proof it. It is even common to recreate titles for films since it is not allowed to upload a filmposter. So the recreation of the magazine is fine.

Two other examples: The wikipedia page for the German film magazine "Cinema" using a recreated logo: The Wikipedia page for the movie "Top Gun" using a recreated logo:

--Filmjunkie137 (talk) 19:31, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Uspořádání toku letového provozu - ATFCMEdit

Dobrý den, pane Zelenko,

reaguji na Váš komentář k mému článku "Uspořádáni toku letového provozu - ATFCM". Mohu samozřejmě získat souhlas od spoluautorů knihy "Letecké služby", kterou uvádím jako použitý zdroj, ale obávám se, že to do 7 dnů nestihnu. Velmi bych ocenil, kdyby Vám stačilo mé ujištění, že tento článek, který je součástí uvedené knihy, je celý na 100 % moje vlastní dílo, ani jeden ze spoluautorů se na něm nepodílel. Vlastně jsem ani tuto knihu do použitých zdrojů uvádět nemusel, ale přišlo mi to správné. Pak jsem Vás chtěl požádat ještě o jednu věc. Tento článek je první, který jsem na Wikipedii zveřejnil. Nemám s editací moc zkušeností a umístil jsem ho do nesprávné rubriky. Rád bych přemístil do rubriky "Letectví" a podrubriky "Řízení letového provozu". Jak to mohu provést, nebo to za mě můžete udělat Vy? Druhý Váš komentář se týkal mé fotografie. Pokusím se dopátrat k panu fotografovi a získat jeho souhlas. Děkuji Vám za Vaši odpověď, s pozdravem Vladimír Soldán

If your going to delete them then take a look at the restEdit

Hello there as I say if you're on the male masturbation there are about 30 videos I post one which in contrast is the same but this time a woman is doing it yet I see no one deleting all the male masturbation videos Yet one get posted of a female is not right yet the videos of the other sex is I mean it does show what female ejaculation is as so do the male ejaculation videos if your going to delete this then i find it odd you have not seen all the other male videos Also accounting for fellatio the video wasn't a porno it showed what it was now that you can delete yet if it was in black and white would you delete it yet there seem to be old videos of the same thing in black and white more sexual than the one I posted.

Commons has enough of explicit materials of any kind, so it's always good idea to ask what is still missing. I personally don't discriminate on kind of such media, but I could not patrol all new uploads. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:59, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - testing other statementsEdit

You can now test using other statements for structured data on the file page on Test-Commons. Some datatypes are not yet available, such a coordinates, but further support will be extended soon.

It's not obvious that AMousy is Anže Miš, so please send authorship confirmation to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review. Same should be done for book cover, but from official copyrights holder. After permission check file could be undeleted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:58, 7 August 2019 (UTC)


Greetings Eugene: Could you review ? I do not speak Russian and that gallery has almost all "own work" - although it would appear on the surface that much of it is not actually personally created. Thank you for you review. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:59, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

  Done. I think you are correct, so I nominated almost all files for deletion. Some of them in public domain, but uploader should learn how to properly attribute such files as well as about relevant license tags. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:43, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Deletions request File:Ciudad de los Césares obra teatro.png / File:Baradit manifestacion.pngEdit

Eugene, hi. You request a deletion arguing "Unlikely to be own work: small resolutions, missing EXIF." Both photographs has been taken by friends with my cellphone in one case, and a cellphone of their own in the other. Then were processed to reduce their resolution in order to upload them to wikisource.

In both cases you need to ask your friends to send permissions to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:57, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Files nominated for deletionEdit

Hi Eugene,

Few of the files that I have uploaded in the past have been nominated for deletion. I'm sorry, looks like I haven't uploaded them properly or in a correct place. Could you please advice what has to be done in order for those files to stay on GFK Tikvesh page, or where else I can upload them. Kind Regards, F00700I (talk) 21:54, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

You need to find out if these images in public domain or not. It's necessary to look for source information: photographer(s), dates of his/her life or at least approximate date of creation if author is unknown. Then license tags must be fixed. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory for relevant country(ies). --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:07, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi Eugene,

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. I think some of the nominated images are in public domain. We can definitely determine the approximate date of creation. I had a close look at the link which you suggested, do you think the following License tag Template:PD-North Macedonia can help in any way, as some of the images are definitely published before 1946 or 1971. Just so you know the images have been freely used in the past by multiple parties on social media, football book, football forums, sports portals, flyers etc. Kind Regards F00700I (talk) 07:48, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Answered on deletion request page. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:21, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Файлы, загруженные AverevEdit

Уважаемый Евгений!

Спасибо за Ваш отклик. Извините, за поздний ответ. Я полный новичек в ВИКИ и только сегодне обнаружил Ваше послание и увидел, что русский для Вас родной язык. Кроме того, сразу угроза удаления, сильно охладила мое желание писать и посылать материал в ВИКИ.

Конкретно по загронутым Файлам:

1) Фотография (портрет) Bolonkin Alexander Alexandrovich. Его биография есть в английской Википедии, но без портрета. Все биограции знаменитых ученых в Википедии с портретами. Поэтому я загрузил на ВИКИСКЛАД его фото с тем, чтобы попросить кого-нибудь из опытных участников поместить ее в его английскую биографию. Эта фото сделано мною и помещено во многих книгах Болонкина для публичного использования.

Кто сделал снимок? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:20, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

2) Fail: Circle Launcher and Space Keeper. I loaded it in my sandbox for help.
I think this project is suitable for WIKI. This Project is studied in serious scientific articles and presented in many American scientific Conferences and International Space Congress-2002, published in famous scientific "Journal British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), vol. 56, No 9/10, 2003, pp. 314-327"; published in scientific Collection famous scientific publish house Elsevier, 2006, 468 ps. Ch.3. ISBN-13: 978-0-080044-731-5, ISBN-10: 080044-731-7; and many others. (br/). I asked to help me to load pictures into English WIKI. I cannot to load pictures into WIKI.

I would appreciate, if you will help me. You can write answer me in Russian.

Для подобных диаграмм лучше использовать формат w:ru:SVG. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:20, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

File:Austro-Hungarian army footage HD.webmEdit

Hi! Than you can change the right type of copy rights. It is more than 100 years old footage. Do not delete it just becaouse of wrong type of licence. Thanks!--Togaheather (talk) 11:31, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Just fix license tag. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:21, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

I changed it to "PD-old". Is that correct?--Togaheather (talk) 14:55, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Should be if copyrights law in relevant countries account only publication date for films. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:56, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Deletion requests for public domain works listed under incompatible licensesEdit

Hey EugeneZelenko, you made deletion requests for several national flags and emblems under the argument that the licensing should be marked public domain (For example: [1] GFDL, [2] cc-by-sa). And I agree these works probably do fall under public domain as mentioned in the English Wikipedia essay here: Copyright on renderings of emblems. So... if the license needs updated, and the works are public domain (meaning there is no license holder), why delete them?

Deletion requests are not necessarily mean deletion. Anyway source/license information need to be fixed. You could suggest better process for that. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:06, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm asking because in response to your deletion request I was going to fall back to a better vector-based image, but that image has the same problem. It's licensed under a CC share-alike license, which is not compatible with public domain. Should I similarly nominate the SVG for deletion, or should I update the license? --Elephanthunter (talk) 18:49, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

I could not tell how complicated original image was, so does vectorization justify separate copyrights or not? Anyway proper license for source image must present in description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:06, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
