Permissions granted by Big Lion Productions

Dear Marchjuly

I have been told owner has sent an email to : permissions-commons@wikimedia.org, granting permission to use both of these images, so can you lift speedy deletion warning.

Thank you

@Pep67: I'm not sure which two files you're referring to, but two of the three I tagged have already been deleted. I am not an adminstrator so I cannot "undelete" those files. File:Big Lion Productions Logo.png ‎ was deleted by administrator Jcb and File:Faithfully.png was deleted by administrator Y.haruo. If a permission email has been sent to COM:OTRS for either of those two files, please ask for assistance from the administrator who deleted the file.
The other file I tagged (File:Phillip Leo 1996.png) has not yet been deleted, so if a permission's email has been sent to OTRS for this file, then the Template:No permission since can be replaced with Template:OTRS pending. This file give 30 days for the email to be verified by OTRS, but the template will revert back to the "No permission since" one if the email has not been verified by then. If you're not sure how to remove the template I added and replace it with the "OTRS pending" one, please let me know and I will do it.
There is no need to re-upload any of the files which have been deleted. Deleted files are not gone forever; they are only hidden from public view and they can be "undeleted" by an administrator once whatever issues that lead to their deletion have been resolved. Re-uploading the files may cause other editors to mistakenly assume that you are repeatedly uploading copyright violations and could in turn lead to an administrator blocking your account from editing.
You should also understand that once a copyright content has been released under a free license, it cannot be revoked or taken back. In addition, a free license on Commons basically means that the copyright holder is giving anyone anywhere in the world permission to download the file at anytime for any purpose, including commercial purposes. This is why company logos such as the Big Lion production logo are very seldom released under a free license because it gives others permission to download these files and use them to make money or in some other way which might not be to the benefit of the company So, you and the original copyright holder should make sure that this is what you or they want to do.
Finally, please try and remember to sign your user talk page posts on Commons and Wikipedia as explained in en:WP:TILDE. Signing your posts allow others to better see who posted what and when it was posted. -- Marchjuly (talk) 23:47, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
