I have answered your note regarding the copyright of the company Logo and have pointed out, that I myself as a WIKI author am the owner of this company and therefore have the copyright on this Logo - I write it here as I cannot find the correspondence on other places - I was not writing articles for a long time, but I did many articles on history of arts many years ago — Preceding unsigned comment added by Corso1111 (talk • contribs) 15:55, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Corso1111. The file you uploaded (File:Woka Logo-mit-Adler 6cm-300dpi.jpg) was deleted by an administrator named Jcb because it is too complex to be accepted by Commons without verification that it has been clearly released by the copyright holder under a free license acceptable for Commons. As I posted on the file's talk page in response to your post there, you can decide to release the file under a free license if you are the logo's creator/copyright holder. However, you are going to need to send Commons a explicit declaration of consent verifying that you understand and agree to the terms of the license you decide to use for the logo. You can find out how to do this in COM:OTRS#Licensing images: when do I contact OTRS?.
This verification is necessary because a "free license" with respect to Commons means that the copyright holder is agreeing to allow anyone anywhere in the world to download the logo at anytime and use it for any purpose they like including for commercial purposes. In addition, once a logo, etc. has been released under a free license, the license cannot be cancelled. Therefore, as a business owner yourself, you can probably understand why Commons wants to do everything it can to make sure that no company logos are being improperly uploaded as "free content". Even though the logo you uploaded has been deleted, it's not really gone forever; rather, it's only hidden from public view and can be easily restored once its licensing has been properly verified by a Commons OTRS volunteer. This verifiction process may take a bit of time from start to finish, so you need to be a little patient. After you send in the permissions email, you will receive a reply containing an OTRS ticket number. You should keep this number on file because it make it easier for OTRS volunteers to help you with any further questions you may have. I am not an administrator or an OTRS volunteer, so there's not much more that I can do to help you. I will post a message for Jcb and ask him if he is able to help you further. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:43, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
Yes, the appropriate way is indeed to contact OTRS. Jcb (talk) 21:46, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
