undelete requestEdit

Hello Jeff, re: the profile photo of Janos Csak, we do have permission from the photographer via e-mail and the original one has actually been published here: hence this was our reference.

  • @W lilla: Signing your posts on talk pages is required and it is a Commons guideline to sign your posts on deletion requests, undeletion requests, and noticeboards. To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and a timestamp will then automatically be added when you save your comment. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). Thank you.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 12:44, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
@W lilla: I see no free license on that page. Please have the photographer send permission and the full photo with EXIF metadata via OTRS with a carbon copy to you, or at least send a copy of the email message from the photographer with full Internet headers with a copy to that photographer. Also, who is "we"?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 12:44, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
@Augusztino: This appears to concern File:Janos-csak-profile.jpg.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 20:54, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

File:Carolyn Davidson, UK Ambassador to Guatemala.jpgEdit

Do you have a licence for the high-res version? Because the licence linked only seems to relate to the smaller version. If there's a link to the big one, I can't see it.

In which case, we have to treat it as unlicensed and we can't have the big version. Andy Dingley (talk) 20:33, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

@Andy Dingley: Why wouldn't it be covered by {{OGL3}}?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 20:49, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
No reason why it wouldn't be. But we just don't get to presume that anything is covered by anything, we have to be told that, by the rights owner. Andy Dingley (talk) 21:41, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
@Andy Dingley: The rights owner, The UK Government, told me via that "The UK Government Licensing Framework (UKGLF) provides a policy and legal overview of the arrangements for licensing the use and re-use of public sector information, both in central government and the wider public sector. It sets out best practice, standardises the licensing principles for government information, mandates the Open Government Licence (OGL) as the default licence for Crown bodies and recommends OGL for other public sector bodies." The file came from a website of The UK Government and did not appear to meet any of the exceptions listed on {{OGL3}}. Therefore, I concluded that use of {{OGL3}} for that file was appropriate.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 22:02, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
