QuestionEdit

Hi, Sealle. I came across a thing that i wanted to ask you. Azerbaijani news website Sputnik.az releases photos by mentioning their copyright owners. For example: this and this have one. This one says that it's in public domain. I want to make sure that these files are acceptable here. Cheers. --Toghrul Rahimli (talk) 12:30, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello! Please see Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses for reference. First of all, Sputnik.az has the term Bütün hüquqlar qorunur = All Rights Reserved in it's footer, which is the most prohibitive one among others, so it's no way compatible with Commons. As for two first photos, you can not upload them, until you get permission from their copyright holders (APA and Reuters), as for the third - you should keep in mind that you must provide evidence for every image you consider being PD. As for me, such a statement does not look reliable enough without indicating the source, author and the reason why this photo is in the public domain. Sealle (talk) 14:47, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
