See the deletion request; the uploader has provided evidence that he has the right to release all of these images. Would you mind withdrawing the request? Nyttend (talk) 14:14, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

@Nyttend: I'm really surprised by a company placing its corporate logo under cc-by-sa-4.0. It sounds like they don't know exactly what they're doing. However, I've deleted the banners on File:AphelionApplication44.jpg and File:ADCISOfficeSCThumb.png. What elese I got to do to withdraw the request? --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 14:38, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
I too was surprised. Just asking that you add a statement to the DR saying basically "since copyright's cleared up, I withdraw this request". Of course, if you don't want to withdraw, that's different. Nyttend (talk) 15:01, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
@Nyttend: I talked to Damien ELIE about the free corporate logos. He may move them to and just keep illustrations on Commons. I'll update the request after his feedback. Thank you. --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 16:50, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome, and of course I'll be happy to use admin tools if you or he ask me to; just let me know what's needed. Nyttend (talk) 16:53, 13 November 2015 (UTC)


Hi, I saw your map request. Unfortunately I don't know how to fix SVG files. Do you know anyone? --MehrdadFR (talk) 21:18, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Discrimination against atheists.png - this map is more comprehensive then others because beside death penalty it shows discriminatory laws also. In case of Iran it's correct and I can confirm it because according to the Constitution of Iran (article 115) president must be a believer (quote: ييس جمهور بايد از ميان رجال مذهبي و سياسي كه واجد شرايط زير باشند انتخاب گردد). --MehrdadFR (talk) 02:05, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Lavatory ServiceEdit

Hello, Lacrymocéphale !

I own all the rights to these pictures, please cancel your deletion request. This is my one-man music project. I'm creating the WIKI page for it.

I'm talking about these:

Hi @SadigAlizada:
So, every one can freely use your band logo? You confirm you're statement File:Lavatory-service-preview-_medium.png#Licensing "You are free:
  • to share – to copy, distribute and transmit the work
  • to remix – to adapt the work"?
If so, do it on the deletion request. If there is effectively no problem, my request will be rejected.
And why uploading it several times?
For the wiki, be sure your band matchs w:WP:BAND.

Hi there, please can you help me delete my picture I uploaded by accident?

Thank you.

EDA says that nobody can't use the logo without asking ( Commons says everyone can use it without asking. This is an inacceptable trap. If EDA want to have their Logo on Commons, EDA must change the licence of its logo to a licence compatible with Commons one and declare copyleft-like licence on instead of the absolute contrary.
Owning means nothing: Commons is about giving freely.

Hi Lacrymocéphale, You appear to be blocking me uploading and updated logo for the 2019 FIL Rathbones Women's World Cup Lacrosse. I am part of the team supporting this event and if you look the new logo is simply an updated version of the original as the Sponsor, Rathbones, has updated its typography.

You can contact me directly at, if you have any further queries.

Hello, Lacrymocéphale ! I will excuse your French if you excuse my computer! I sent a bulk of photos of his works, copyrighted, by artist Carroll N. Jones. McCauls Florist was deleted. He has given me permission for all .jpg's he has sent to me over the years. The ticket number is [Ticket#2016012410007425] and I am preparing an email.

Hi @Jrbwalk:
Actually the main problem (from my point of view) is the apparent contradiction between
  • "Source All are copyrighted materials of Carroll Jones III" and
  • "This file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license." (aka CC BY-SA 4.0)
You should also be aware of what it means for an artist to have is work placed under a licence such as CC BY-SA 4.0, maybe a loss of profit.
I'll ask for help later.

  1. I didn't delete it. I ask for deletion and the deletion was confirmed and executed by Storkk
  2. 5 reasons? 1 reason is enough: Copyright infringement. Trademark logos are copyrighted and can't be uploaded on Commons. See COM:Licensing and COM:Fair use.
  3. You can upload them directly on the concerned Wikipedia if fair use is available there.

De plus il faut préciser qu'aucune mention légale n'est mentionnée sur le site, il ne renvoie à aucun organisme professionnel, l'auteur du site lui-même étant "Johanna Ouwerling" rédactrice de n'est pas graphiste professionnel et ou encore aucune mention professionnelle n'est indiquée.
Donc je suis en droit d'utiliser tout élément que ce site fournit.
En bref cette image n'est revendiquée par personne, une personne étant présente sur cette image et plus en droite de m'autoriser à l'utiliser que tout utilisateur actuel sur le web

  1. Les droits d'une photo par une personne A d'une personne B n'appartient pas à B mais à A. B n'a que le droit de faire interdire l'image.
  2. Quand il n'y a pas de mention légale, la mention légale par défaut est le copyright total.
  3. COM:PCP
Je vais aller vérifier "elle tombe directement dans le domaine public comme toutes photos pouvant être réalisé par un fan" même s'il n'y a pas de preuve concrète que c'est la photo d'un fan.
Cordialement, --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 12:09, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
@V.derreck: aucune loi ne semble aller dans le sens de l'affirmation "elle tombe directement dans le domaine public comme toutes photos pouvant être réalisé par un fan". Il faut bien une autorisation du propriétaire des droits de la photo (son auteur en l'absence d'une transmission officiel de ses droits). --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 13:38, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Et dans le cas ou une personne présente sur cette image m'autorise à la diffuser librement elle à entièrement le droit d'exercer son droit à l'image, je crois que c'est un droit absolu !, mais dans ce cas comment cela ce passe?

j'en prend bonne note. et bien c'est écrit noir sur blanc "Le droit à l’information autorise la publication d’images de personnes impliquées dans un événement" donc vraiment désolé mais cette acharnement ma bien assez suffit. Etant donné que cette élément est une photo prise par un tiers, jusqu’à preuve du contraire lors d'un événement public "un concert" dans le-quelle figure une et j'ajouterai même plusieurs personne dans cette image m'autorisant à la diffuser librement, et que jusqu’à présent elle n’appartiens à personne, désolé mais très sincèrement si il y à un problème j'en prend l’entière responsabilité. et vous m'excuserai mais j'ai franchement d'autres choses à faire que débattre avec vous, à ce niveau c'est de l'acharnement, rien n'est en votre faveur pour vous autoriser à refuser cette publication. Et sauf preuve du contraire dont vous ne disposez pas, j'ai tout les droits de mener à bien cette entreprise. Et si vous n'avez aucune réel preuve pour m'indiquer que je déblatère des bêtises, et croyez moi j'ai d'autres préoccupations que celle-ci , j’apprécierai assez d'en arrêter là et de stopper cette abus Cordialement V.Derreck --V.derreck (talk) 17:04, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
"Le droit à l’information autorise la publication d’images de personnes impliquées dans un événement"
Je ne vois rien là-dedans permettant de disposer des photos prises par les autres. Les photographes ne pourraient plus bosser qu'en studio alors ? L'image appartient au "tiers". Et ce n'est pas une image du concert mais une pose devant un rideau de fer non identifié.
COM:PCP toujours, vous ne pouvez pas prendre l'entière responsabilité puisque vous mettez en jeu les responsabilités de Wikimedia Commons et de tout ceux qui réutiliseraient l'image en suivant de bonne foi votre déclaration.
De toute manière, ce n'est pas moi qui efface les images et il y a une contre-expertise à ce moment là.
--Lacrymocéphale (talk) 17:25, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Très bien dans ce cas l'image tombe dans l'oublie étant donné que personne ne peut apparemment justifier correctement de l'utiliser ?--V.derreck (talk) 17:41, 22 August 2016 (UTC)


Bonjour, je me permets d'intervenir. Par défaut, toute œuvre est protégée par le droit d'auteur classique, c'est-à-dire qu'on ne peut réutiliser une photo sans l'accord de son auteur. Voilà pourquoi existe les licences libres (Creative Commons, etc.) où l'auteur accepte que son œuvre soit réutilisée sans qu'on le contacte.

Il est donc illégale de réutiliser une photo trouvée sur le web si le site ne mentionne pas explicitement le contraire. Bien sûr, les particuliers ne courent aucun risque, mais Wikimedia Commons respecte la loi. La photo doit donc explicitement être placée sous une licence libre ou être dans le domaine public (son auteur doit être mort depuis plus de 70 ans).

Le droit à l'image n'a rien à voir avec le droit d'auteur / copyright mais est destiné à protéger la vie privée. Sauf exception, chaque personne a droit au respect de sa vie privée. Cf paparazzi, etc. Dans certains cas, le respect à la vie privée est mis de côté par les tribunaux parce que le droit à l'information l'emporte (photo de meeting politique, photo d'attentats, etc.). Mais faut dans tous les cas respecter le droit d'auteur.

Voilà, j'espère avoir été clair.

Du coup ce n'est pas simple d'illustrer tout une série d'article de Wikipédia car bien souvent faut faire soi même les photos. Pyb (talk) 03:37, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

KonaKart Wikipedia pageEdit

Thew new "swirl" logo has been loaded and is visible on the page at the moment. This is the one we want. The other one with the palm tree is the old one and no longer required.

About the references that you previously removed because you saw no reference to "KonaKart" on those pages. It's normal for the users of the KonaKart software not to show the word "KonaKart" anywhere on their sites. They are free to do that. The references were examples of what users of the software have done.

I'm sorry I don't know all the rules of Wikipedia. We are trying to conform but it's not always easy to know what to do.

I'm not even sure if this is the correct way to send you a message so please accept my apologies if this isn't the right way.

Aide Fiche Anthony CianniEdit

Bonjour Lacrymocéphale, j'aurais besoin de votre aide pour y voir un peu plus clair, je viens de créer cette fiche sur ce joueur de Beach Soccer et j'ai plusieurs bandeaux qui s'affiche en tête de page et j'aurais aimé comprendre comment y remédier.

Le premier indique : L'admissibilité de cet article est à vérifier (janvier 2017). Motif : Vérifier Projet:Football/Critères d'admissibilité, WP:NPER ou WP:NGEN le second : La mise en forme de cet article est à améliorer (janvier 2017). La mise en forme du texte ne suit pas les recommandations de Wikipédia : il faut le « wikifier ».

Du coup je n'arrive pas à vraiment cibler où se situe les problèmes indiqués.

Concernant ton message vis à vis de la photo que j'ai posté je viens de la supprimer car en effet je l'ai récupérer depuis le site officiel de la Beach Soccer Worldwide mais elle n'était pas libre de droit. Je vais essayer d'en trouver une autre libre cette fois.

Je te remercie en tout cas pour ton aide

Salut, on a reçu un ticket OTRS pour ce fichier (et d'autres semblables). Tu te souviens pourquoi tu l'avais marqué comme "missing permission"? --Ruthven (msg) 13:54, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Bonsoir @Ruthven:
De mémoire, et, en regardant Special:Contributions/SireFlo et fr:Discussion utilisateur:SireFlo#Wikimedia Commons, je crois que ce fichier là avait une cartouche avec le nom de l'illustrateur (Florian Besson) et une date (2015) trop récente pour Public Domain. J'ai dû me dire qu'il fallait vérifier que l'uploader est bien celui qui a produit et signé l'image.
Visiblement, je ne suis pas allé au bout de l'idée dont je lui fait part à un moment sur ma page de discussion wikifr : je n'ai pas suivi COM:GOODFAITH, retiré le bandeau "missing permission" et assumé que SireFlo était vraisemblablement ce Florian Besson ; peut-être au nom de COM:PRP. Je suis désolé de ne pas avoir été plus cool avec lui et, par cascade, avec les gens d'OTRS.

Pas de soucis. Juste pour être sûr que si on a une trace écrite d'autorisation à OTRS, ce ne serait pas un problème pour toi si on récupérait les fichiers. Je n'ai d'ailleurs pas trouvé d'images semblables sur le Net. --Ruthven (msg) 21:48, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Usunięcie loga TPZEdit

Za przeproszeniem, Pana zachowanie jest niedopuszczalne. Jakim prawem zgłasza Pan logo organizacji społecznej z innego kraju do usunięcia? Za koga się Pan uważa, żeby usuwać logo do którego mam pełne prawa? Czy mam tak samo zgłaszać wszystkie loga z Marianną w Panu kraju? Żądam natychmiastowego przywrócenia loga Towarzystwa Przyjaciół Ząbek.

Your VFC installation method is deprecatedEdit

Hello Lacrymocéphale, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead enable the VFC gadget in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

File:Michel Temer Oficial.jpgEdit

Bom dia, senhor!

Quero a autorização de vossa senhoria para inserção da foto oficial do Presidente Michel Temer (Brasil); a imagem se trata de um ato oficial que cai em domínio público conforme disposto em lei.

Inclusive já possui uma template no Wikimedia Commons a respeito do assunto proposto. {{PD-BrazilGov}}

Essa é a segunda foto; e a oficial. A primeira havia sido deletada por que não era oficial sim preliminar. Esta que carreguei é oficial conforme lei a abaixo:

LEI Nº 9.610, DE 19 DE FEVEREIRO DE 1998.

@Expert Brasil: So, why did you start with a fake description, you as the author and a CC BY-SA 4.0 license? --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 09:36, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Lacrymocéphale vous validez que le fichier soit libre ? --Panam2014 (talk) 11:39, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
@Panam2014: Sans être spécialiste, je ne suis pas convaincu que ce soit dans le domaine publique. Tous les éléments avancés par Expert Brasil parlent soit de textes mais pas d'images soit d'éléments publiés avant 1983. De mon point de vue, il y a toujours soit une violation de copyright soit une erreur de license. --Lacrymocéphale (talk) 12:21, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/ZADNA Board of DirectorsEdit

"This changes by Naranv juste make ZADNA Board of Directors look like Category:ZADNA Board of Directors. Still no interest in a handmade category-like static page. Seems like we are dealing with newbies not knowing what they're doing."

While not common, it is certainly permitted to have a gallery with the same images as a category. The two have different purposes. I am afraid that your second sentence may be more true of you than of the creator of this gallery.

You might better have noted that all the images were copyvios -- they appear on the ZADNA web site with an explicit copyright notice. It looks like the Flickr page is {{COM:LL|license laundering]].

bonjour Monsieur Lacrymocéphale

vous indiquez dans wiki commons que j'abuse , je me permet juste de vous expliquer que je decouvre wikipedia( depuis une semaine ! ) , en aucun cas je suis la pour abuser de quoi que ce soit. vous meme m avez ecris qu il fallait que je demande pour comprendre tellement il y a de regles à decouvrir, ce que j ai fait en postant la remarque pour savoir comment faire pour retirer la photo du telechargement alors que je ne trouve aucun texte la dessus pour le faire moi meme, ni bouton de suppression. vous pouvez supprimer toutes les photos si cela est necessaire, cela me gene en rien, je suis pas la pour la promo et j'ai eu la chance d avoir eu des centaines d 'article presse papier dans le monde , tv et film et millier d article web. J ai mis les photo pour illustrer le texte et pris soin de mettre des photos non promotionnelle sans publicité ou sponsor dessus. Je suis désolé que cela puisse choquer les wiki, et je m en excuse si vous pensez que j abuse de quoi que ce soit, ce n est en aucun ca ma volontée. Cordialement Stephane Belgrand Rousson --Aeroceanaute (talk) 08:36, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Pour supprimer, je vous ai donné la solution dans Vous n'avez pas ce bouton ?
Je vous ai déjà parlé de fr:WP:AUTO. Ne participer essentiellement qu'à la page vous concernant n'est pas interdit mais, encore une fois, attention tout de même. Faites profiter Wikipédia de vos connaissances en participant au fr:Projet:Aéronautique, par exemple, au lieu de vous focaliser sur votre personne et vos amis. Et comme nous disons, la preuve de notoriété commence par ne pas avoir besoin de créer soi-même un article sur soi.
