Copyright violations by ЭргEdit

Hello Mithril,

there is a problem with user Эрг (I have seen that you discussed sth with him in the past)). I have figured out that he has uploaded many copyrighted images (for instance scans from textbooks), some of them have been tagged by me (copyright violations) and been deleted as a consequence. On his discussion page there is a growing body of evidence that he does not understand or gives whatever about that - more and more deleted images due to violations.

In addition, there is another problem. He let translate (?) some images like file:NADH Dehydrogenase Mechanism (ru).png or file:C4 photosynthesis PEPCK (ru).svg and uploaded them but did not mention the original author and - also interesting - changed the license.

Now: what to do? Cheers, -- 11:46, 3 April 2017 (UTC)


Dear Sir, I am coordinating the publication of a new textbook of zoology (in Italian) and I wonder whether I can use your picture published in:

In the case, you will be credited for it. Best regards and thank you for your attention. Loriano Ballarin
