File:Sunhild Kleingaertner.jpgEdit

Dear Túrelio,

two days ago you deleted the picture File:Sunhild Kleingaertner.jpg , uploaded by my client with the account "Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte" because of a copywright violation. Thank you for taking care, but in this case the accusation is wrong. My client is the owner of the picture and he uploaded it for free use. The website you found and linked as original source is the website of my client, who's also the owner of the picture you deleted: The DSM Museum is the Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte like its mentioned in the subheadline.

Kind regards,

Hallo 35c63n,
ich antworte mal auf deutsch, weil :de ja dein "Heimatprojekt" ist. Das Problem mit Nutzerkonten wie "Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte" ist, dass jeder beliebige so ein Konto eröffnen kann. Deshalb gibt es für institutionelle Nutzer seit einiger Zeit die Möglichkeit, das Nutzerkonto verifizieren zu lassen, wie es hier: de:Wikipedia:Benutzerverifizierung beschrieben ist. Falls du bzw. das "Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte" weitere Uploads planen, würde ich das unbedingt empfehlen. Falls nicht bzw. um das o.g. Portrait wiederherstellen zu lassen, sollte das Leibniz-Institut für Maritime Geschichte von seiner offiziellen Emailadresse an eine Mail schicken, in der bestätigt wird, dass das Institut entweder selbst der Urheber oder der Rechteinhaber an dem Portrait ist und zustimmt, dass es unter der gewählten freien Lizenz auf Commons verbreitet wird. (Falls der Urheber ein unabhängiger Fotograf ist, ist es Sache des Instituts im Innenverhältnis zu klären, ob er dafür seine Genehmigung gegeben hat). Wenn diese Mail abgeschickt ist, kannst du mir kurz eine Nachricht geben. --Túrelio (talk) 09:10, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio,

herzlichen Dank für deine schnelle Rückmeldung. Ich bin auf der Talk Seite auf solch einen Hinweis gestoßen und an meinen Kunden weitergegeben. Das Konto wurde inzwischen, wie aufgefordert, durch ein formloses Schreiben über eine offizielle E-Mail Adresse des Instituts verifiziert. Ich habe auch schon im Auftrag des Instituts eine Undeletion Request gestellt und die Sachlage aufgeklärt. Falls das Portrait infolgedessen nicht wieder hergestellt wird, gebe die Anleitung an den Auftraggeber und Rechteinhaber weiter. Ich danke für die Hilfe. Schöne Grüße!

Hallo Túrelio,

falls du mein Edit zur letzten Nachricht nicht gesehen hast: Erstmal einmal vielen Dank für deine schnelle Rückmeldung. Ich hatte solch eine Info auch auf der User Page der Kundin gesehen und daraufhin schon drum gebeten, das Konto verifizieren zu lassen. Das ist auch direkt passiert. Ich weiß nicht wie lange die Bearbeitung nun dauern wird und ob das Portrait nun durch den von mir gestellten Undeletion Antrag wieder eingestellt wird; falls ich oder die Kundin als Urheberin das Foto erneut hochladen müssen, freue ich mich über eine kleine Nachricht.

Hi Niegodzisie,

2) for the first image, you need to explain why your work was published more than 1 years earlier on Facebook.
3) for the second image, you need to explain why your work was published more than 1 years earlier on Facebook.

Question about deletion of File:Holebifilmfestival_Logo.pngEdit

Dear Túrelio,

I noticed you recently deleted the image mentioned above. (original here:
I'm not sure what license I initially selected, but I do believe it qualifies as {{PD-textlogo}} (possibly {{trademarked}}).
Compared with, for example, File:Nielsen_logo.svg or File:Steinberg_logo.png, I think the same logic applies here.

Could you take a look ? If you agree, should I upload it again or file an undeletion request ?

thanks for your time — Kwakeroni (talk) 13:09, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Kwakeroni,
the logo-image was deleted because you had tagged it by yourself as non-free logo, which automatically leads to speedy-deletion. After viewing the deleted image, I agree that it might go per PD-textlogo. So, I've restored it. However, be prepared that it might be nominated for deletion by anybody else. --Túrelio (talk) 13:17, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Ok thanks, I must have been confused with the different rules on Wikipedia. Anyway I'll see if it remains 'up', otherwise I'll contact the organization and request to stick a license to it. — Kwakeroni (talk) 14:22, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Social Media Marketing.jpg Is a CC0 FileEdit

Hi Túrelio, I hope you are well. I noted you deleted my uploads below as you could find them on existing sites. All of these images have been taken from Pixabay and are in the public domain under the CC0 Creative Commons licence. THe images i have uploaded have social media icons edited into them so they look quite different to the Pixabay images they are based on. Hopefully they will add value to those writing social media based works. For example the social media marketing.jpg image can be found here

In any case i can understand if you did a quick google image search that they would appear so it looks like infringement. Can you confirm how i can ensure future files i have altered from Pixabay are not deleted and what actions i need to take to undelete my 6 files below (alos included links to all pixabay files below).

I appreciate you have a difficult job with endless tasks so hoping my images will not cause issues for you again.

Today Testing (talk) 12:48, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Today Testing,
if File:Social Media Marketing.jpg is an edited version of this Pixabay image, why did you claim it as completely own work? That's the reason why another tagged it as copyvio and why I consequently deleted it.
Anyway, IMO the easiest way to prevent these edited images getting suspected as copyvio, would be to 1) upload the original (unedited) image to Commons, and then as 2) step to upload your (edited) version, under an at least slightly different filename and clearly writing in the source-entry {{Derived from|original.jpg}}. If you could do this, then I could undelete your images.
However, another advise for caution: In the description of your uploads, you asked for a credit/link to This might be considered as spam and either removed (or the image itself getting deleted).

--Túrelio (talk) 14:54, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio Regarding your 1st question, I put it as own work after reading the below in 1st paragraph in the section. ‘In, either case, unless the underlying work is in the public domain (see Commons:Public domain) or there is evidence that the underlying work has been freely licensed for reuse (for example, under an appropriate Creative Commons license), the original creator of the work must explicitly authorize the copy/ derivative work before it can be uploaded to Commons.’ I interpreted this as allowing me to authorise my derivative work as my own as it was in the public domain and I have altered them considerably. Apologies if I misunderstood the rule there.

Regarding uploading the images, do you want me to upload all my edited versions again or just the originals – not sure because you mention undeleting the existing images in your message. Also where exactly do you input This file was derived from: Original.jpg
? Is this done by choosing ‘this file is not my own work’ and then putting code into ‘source’ or is it added to the description section?

Lastly, thanks for heads up on spam thing. Can you clarify though, the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license Wikimedia uses states under attribution –‘You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor’. Can I specify to attribute to me or my site given that rule? I understand that using the URL can be spammy but if I removed the url and just stated the name of the website would that be reasonable?

Thanks for your help,

Al / Today Testing Today Testing (talk) 18:06, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

ad 1) whether the author of a PD-released original is mentioned, is mainly a moral/ethical question. IMO, one should do it. As opposed to that, the source of your derivative absolutely needs to be mentioned.
ad 2) no, just the originals. Thereafter, I can undelete your currently deleted derivatives.
ad 3) Correct. But that has nothing to do with copyright or license; that's an application of our (Commons) policy Commons:Project scope.

Photo Yoann BourgeoisEdit


I saw you removed today Yoann Bourgeois' portrait on his wikipedia page saying that we don't have permission to use it I would like to inform you that I modified his page and added this photo on behalf of Yoann as I am working with him and currently in charge of improving his wikipedia page Yoann knows personnally Geraldine and they work together very often; he has bought this photo himself exactly to be able to use it in this kind of situations. I will upload again the portrait and I would be thankful that you do not remove it again

Thank you for your understanding

you claimed to be the author of this photo. Now you confirm that you are not. Crediting the true author is an absolute basic in every country's copyright law. So, even if Bourgeois has obtained copyright/permission from Geraldine Aresteanu, she still needs to be mentioned as author. In addition, in such cases (uploader is not author) the uploader needs to provide a written permission from the author or the copyright-holder to . See Commons:Email templates (or Commons:Messages type in French) for the appropiate wording. --Túrelio (talk) 19:16, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

If I am right, we did say that the photo was taken by Geraldine, it was written right underneath the photo Also, when we uploaded the picture, wikipedia doesn't ask us if we own the photo but if we do have the right to use it (at least this is the french translation) which we totally have Anyway, it doesn't really matter to us, maybe we made a mistake in the process and if it is the case we apologise; what we ask is, how can we now upload again Yoann's portrait in the right way ? I tried this afternoon and didn't find an answer to it... thank you for your help

The answer was already in my first response: 5th and 6th sentence. You actually cannot re-upload the same image again, as it was deleted for suspicion of copyvio. Also, it's not necessary, as it can easily be undeleted by me or any other admin. However, first you need to provide a permission as explained in my first answer. --Túrelio (talk) 06:45, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Undeletion request for US Air Force Academy photosEdit

I'm writing regarding the following files that you deleted after speedy deletion requests:

While it is technically correct that they all had "copyright" licenses on Flickr, it turns out that those licenses are incorrect, an ironic reverse of "license laundering" cases where unscrupulous Flickr users upload others' copyrighted works under free-use CC licenses. AF_Academy is the official Flickr page of the US Air Force Academy, as indicated by the USAFA official Facebook page, so all of its photos are original works of the US Air Force and thus in the public domain. This is a clear case of a false positive, and I hope you reconsider. Arbor to SJ (talk) 16:07, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Arbor to SJ,
I was aware of the contradiction between license on Flickr and assumed status as Gov works. However, from other US gov accounts I know that they sometimes put such images under CC-BY-ND, which is formally also not accepted on Commons and where we ignored the restricted license. However, we also know that US gov entities sometimes present not-own images on their websites, as "courtesy image", which naturally do not fall under the US gov PD clause. So, when this Flickr account is indeed officially by the "AF Academy", they should know what they do. The "all rights reserved" could mean that these images are also "courtesy images" by other authors. IMO, the best would be if you would contact this Flickr account and ask them directly about the 5 images and send their reply to (OTRS). --Túrelio (talk) 20:06, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
Do you have any evidence other than conjecture ("could mean", "sometimes present not-own images") that these pictures are not official US government works? The Air Force Academy Flickr page puts VIRIN's on the names of all its photos (but lazily omits other descriptive info like captions and photographers, for reasons unknown). A VIRIN is "assigned to all DoD personnel who create Visual Information (VI) records", thus meaning that VIRIN's go strictly to works of the US Department of Defense. One of the deleted photos (of Wachenheim and Calhoun) has the VIRIN 160902-F-KB029-2017, the "F" in the second field standing for US Air Force. Arbor to SJ (talk) 03:41, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but that's not how it works here. It's the task of the uploader of not-own works to convince the community that the uploads are under a free license. If there were blatant copyvio-evidence, you would have got just 1 short sentence from me. Also, I don't understand why you did not take my hint and just contacted the Flickr-account to get clarity about the copyright. Anyway, as I am offline for the rest of the day (and eventually also tomorrow), I recommend you to take this case to COM:UDR, where other admins may view it. --Túrelio (talk) 07:08, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Deleted File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpgEdit

This image had 2 Public Domain references (one of them is Wikipedia!!!) containing the very same information buried in much text of the Free e-book by Google that Wiki is citing Corpus Reformatorum (details below), yet my original illustration with proper embedded and explicit references through Wikipedia itself (and presently on Wikipedia) was deleted evidently maliciously, diversely, and plurally, due to the fact that subsequently also in the article the "editors" deleted all references to Polish Sarmatian Astronomer Nicolas Copernicus which is a fact of history through a number of other references, which the "editors" also deliberately deleted (about half of the references of books published in the last 500 years on Copernicus)!

The File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg that I have created, in fact specifically is cited in the Public Domain through Google e-books, and on Wikipedia, as and at Corpus Reformatorum: The Corpus Reformatorum online CR 4 - 1837

Corpus reformatorum, Volume 4 C.A. Schwetschke, 1837

You need to scroll down to the cited page 679!

Which was stated in the deleted File:Sarmaticus Astronomus Nicolas Copernicus c 1543.jpg ... “Page 679 of vol. IV of Corpus Reformatorum, containing a letter (of Oct. 16, 1541) from Philip Melanchton to a Mr. Burcard Mithobius, with first historic reference to "that Sarmatian astronomer who is trying to stop the sun and move the earth." ...

Rosetecscc (talk) 21:19, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

please, no conspiration theories. The file had been tagged by 1 editor as possible copyvio due to "not sure where this came from, but not self made. The texts could be old, but the writing underneath does not. Plus it is text mainly, not an image." Consequently I've performed the deletion.
The problem is not the Latin text, but the separate text portions below the Latin texts, as they are far more recent and clearly within the time-frame for copyright protection. The left text mentions a source from 1953, the right one another source from 1990. So, you could crop away the two smaller portions of the likely copyrighted commentary texts and everything would be o.k., in regard to copyright. --Túrelio (talk) 07:12, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

File deleted Székely_Norbert.jpgEdit

Hello Túrelio, Can you help me with my file? I've took this picture with my own camera, and edit by myself on my laptop. but it has been deleted. (ékely_Norbert)

Thank you.

I see, it's not the same photo as the first version. However, it's not a native camera file. Could you temporarily upload the native camera file? (It can thereafter be removed). --Túrelio (talk) 08:18, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio,

I would like to upload with the native camera file, but the picture is available now, and it shows that the picture is duplicate, what should I do ? The native camera file is this one IMG_9409.JPG,

Thank you

Alencar.rossoni (talk) 09:06, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

if I understand you correctly, our software says it's a duplicate and does not allow you to upload the "new" file, right? If yes, then it is not really the native image from the camera, as the EXIF data of the undeleted image clearly shows no camera data at all. The data shown are from an imaging software (Adobe Photoshop), which was used to edit the image. --Túrelio (talk) 10:26, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Can you help me to understand, can not I edit a picture in the adobe photoshop and after upload it ? And another question, the picture is available in the commons wikimedia, Can I use it?

Thank you,

About the deletion of File:A vindication of K Fleuron T070182-1.pngEdit

Hello Túrelio,

Could you explain why File:A vindication of K Fleuron T070182-1.png has been deleted, please? Your motive is: "Uploads by Fæ needing speedy deletion". Is it a massive deletion of all the files uploaded by a user called "Fæ"?

This file is the title page of a book published in 1711: I hardly think there might be any copyright issue.

Regards, --Daehan (talk) 15:29, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Fae had uploaded xxthousands of scans from old documents. A relative small nummber of them, still hundreths, contain just the scan of a line or a page-number or other useless things, as the original documents were likely scanned automatically and were then "automatically" uploaded to Commons. These to-be-deleted uploads are put into Category:Uploads by Fæ needing speedy deletion, partly by Fae himself or by others. So, the deletion has nothing to do with copyright, but all with being trash-files. I usually check all, whether they are in use, which I never found. So, in case, the above mentioned file had indeed been in use, tell me and I will undelete it. --Túrelio (talk) 19:58, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
Hello Túrelio,
Yes, I use it in two articles in French Wikipedia: it allows me to illustrate a section with extra information without creating a note. So if it's not too much trouble, I would need it.
Thank you, --Daehan (talk) 14:48, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
Ok. I've undeleted it now. --Túrelio (talk) 18:10, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Deleting previous versions of fileEdit

Hello Túrelio. Can previous versions of a file be deleted? I uploaded some files whose pages I had accidentally cut out. I uploaded the correct ones, but will like to see the old versions removed. They’re just wasting space and are of no use. Thanks. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 21:24, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes. But you will not save any space by that, as nothing is really deleted, it's just hidden. Any admin (and higher) can undelete it. Therefore, we perform such version-deletions only if there is a good reason for it. --Túrelio (talk) 21:30, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

2018 Sulawesi earthquakeEdit

Hello. I'm PaPa PaPaRoony, the uploader of the photos of the 2018 Sulawesi earthquake. I've asked for permission for the photos and he had said that he permitted the use of the photos. However, I've just received notification s that said that you've just deleted the photos.. May I have an explanation why? PaPa PaPaRoony 21:24 UTC, 30 September 2018

Hi PaPa PaPaRoony,
I've deleted only File:Dampak-GempaPalu-1.jpg, if I remember correctly.
On Twitter[1] you had asked "Can Wikipedia use these photos for their articles? We will credit you for these photos!" Such a "for Wikipedia" permission is not acceptable on Commons, see our licensing policy. You need to ask the author/photographer whether he/she is willing to release his/her images under a free license, which allows anybody to use them, provided the license terms are met.
If you want to do that, you should 1) choose a license, which you want to propose to the Twitter user. I would recommend our preferred CC-BY-SA license. 2) You need to be honest towards the photographer, in the sense that you explain what a release of his images under such a license means: anybody can use it, even commercially; only has to credit the photographer. 3) If he agrees and confirms, you may notify me again. --Túrelio (talk) 08:43, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Undeletion requestEdit

Plese note that according to the Finnish Copyright Act, § 46a, film stills are free after 50 years of cinematography, similarly as photographs are free according to § 49a. You can read the Act here: Tekijänoikeuslaki (404/1961).

Also, it is rather questionable to delete the file File:Kielletty-kirja.jpg “behind one’s back,” without allowing the uploader to comment on the deletion.

Please undelete the said file. --Mlang.Finn (talk) 16:17, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Walter HelsperEdit

Hallo Túrelio! Aus welchem Grund wurde die Seite "Walter Helsper" gelöscht? Ich besitze für alle Abbildungen die ausdrückliche Erlaubnis zur Veröffentlichung durch die Erbengemeinschaft Walter Helsper. Für jedes einzelne Bild habe ich das entsprechende Formular eingereicht. Am 27. und 28.08.2017 ist der Eingang mit automatisierter Antwort von "Permissions-German wikipedia" bestätigt worden. Ich habe bis heute keine weitere Antwort erhalten, auch auf mehrere Anfragen nicht. Stattdessen sind die Bilder ohne weitere Nachricht gelöscht worden, das ist überhaupt nicht zu akzeptieren. Ich bitte um dringende Wiederherstellung aller Dateien! Vielen Dank für Deine Kooperation.--Kirchners (talk) 10:02, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Kirchners,
die Galerie-Seite Walter Helsper wurde gelöscht, weil sie leer war (wenn die Bilder mal wiederhergestellt worden sind, kann ich diese Seite gerne entlöschen). Die Bilder habe ich nicht gelöscht, sondern mein Kollege User:Jcb, allerdings schon vor mehr als 1 Monat. Wenn du eine Genehmigung an OTRS geschickt hast, was in solch einem Fall der Standard ist, kann es leider recht lange dauern. Die Warteschlange (Einreichung -> Entscheidung) liegt derzeit bei 150 Tagen! Das ist eigentlich Wahnsinn; du musst aber bedenken, dass es ausschließlich Ehrenamtler sind, die die unzähligen bei OTRS eingehenden Mails bearbeiten. Da kann ich auch als Admin nichts dran ändern. (Habs mal versucht und mir eine ziemliche Abfuhr eingehandelt) --Túrelio (talk) 10:46, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Danke für die prompte Antwort. Wie bereits gesagt, hatte ich entsprechende Genehmigungen an OTRS gesendet. Eine Wartezeit von 150 Tagen ist in der Tat sehr bedauerlich, und in meinem Fall noch nicht verstrichen. Sicherlich kannst Du also nichts daran ändern, aber zwei kleine Verbesserungsvorschläge seien angebracht: Ihr solltet Autoren über diese Problematik grundsätzlich informieren. Die Routine "Bild mit mutmaßlichem Urheberrechtsproblem markieren" und nach gewisser Zeit ohne Berücksichtigung der gesendeten Genehmigung an OTRS bzw. ohne jegliche Nachricht das Bild löschen sollte dringend verändert werden.--Kirchners (talk) 11:29, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Was ich i.a. empfehle und was dann meistens auch hilft ist, gleich beim Upload, vorausgesetzt die Genehmigungsmail ist unterwegs, den Baustein {{OTRS pending}} auf das betroffene Bild zu setzen. Dann wird meistens nicht gelöscht. --Túrelio (talk) 13:13, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Foto von Simone MenneEdit

Hallo Túrelio, du hast heute ein Foto von Simone Menne gelöscht, weil es angeblich von hercareer stammt, was nicht richtig ist. Es ist ein frei verwendbares Pressebild von ihr, dass für Veranstaltungen und Artikel genutzt werden darf sowie auf ihrer eigenen Seite Ich bitte dich, dass wieder rückgängig zu machen. Ich stelle keine Bilder ein, die nicht genutzt werden dürfen.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by AnnaQuickRathgeber (talk • contribs) 14:49, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Hallo Anna, ganz so einfach geht es nicht. Du hattest für das Foto File:20180202-13x19-JMai 0345-2.jpg "Jürgen Mai" als Urheber (also nicht du) und als Quelle "Aufnahme einer Person des öffentlichen Lebens" angegeben. Abgesehen davon, dass letzteres keine Quelle ist (höchstens ein Argument warum das Foto nicht gegen Persönlichkeitsrechte verstösst), hast du somit keinerlei für uns überprüfbaren Nachweis erbracht, dass das Foto tatsächlich unter der beanspruchten CC-Lizenz steht. "Pressebilder" gelten bei uns a priori nicht als "frei", weil ihre Nutzung in den meisten Fällen eingeschränkt ist (nur für Berichte im Zusammenhang mit der abgebildeten Person) und sie meist nicht verändert werden dürfen. Dies entspricht aber nicht unseren Vorgaben für frei lizenzierte Bilder (siehe COM:L). Zum weiteren Vorgehen habe ich dir bereits auf deiner Disku geantwortet. --Túrelio (talk) 15:04, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Frage zu zu löschenden BildernEdit

Hallo Túrelio,

du hast diverse neue Bilder von mir zur Löschung markiert. Du wirst dafür sicher einen Grund haben, aber ich verstehe leider den Grund nicht. Wo ist der Unterschied zwischen dem von selbst geschossenen Bild zu beispielsweise diesem hier ? Oder auch diesem hier ?

Sollte tatsächlich ein Verstoß vorliegen, so sollen die Bilder selbstverständlich gelöscht werden.

Ich bin relativ neu, daher würde ich mich über eine Erklärung freuen.

Es ist so, dass Verpackungen, die mehr als nur Text enthalten, im Zweifelsfall als geschützt anzusehen sind. Das gilt insbesondere wenn es sich um Fotos auf der Verpackung handelt, wie im Fall der Hanuta-Verpackung. Generelle Info dazu (aber auf englisch): Commons:Copyright_rules_by_subject_matter#Product_packaging. Ich habe für das andere, von dir benannte Foto ebenfalls die Löschung beantragt, allerdings als regulärer LA, um eine Diskussion zu erlauben. Von deinem Foto habe ich den SLA entfernt und in einen reguläre LA umgewandelt: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Fritz-kola-02.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 14:29, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
Ok, soweit verstanden. Danke. Dann müsste aber gemäß dem von mir aufgeführten Beispiel die Fritz-Flasche durchgehen? Oder das andere Foto auch gelöscht werden. Sonst wird mit zweierlei Maß gemessen. --Willibald11 (talk) 14:36, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
Alles klar. Ich bin gespannt. --Willibald11 (talk) 14:38, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
"zweierlei Maß" - schau, auf Commons werden täglich ca. 20000 neue Dateien hochgeladen, davon geschätzt 10% Urheberrechtverletzungen. Einige Benutzer, die aber sämtlich Freiwillige sind, kümmern sich darum, sich diese Dateien anzuschauen, ob damit Probleme bestehen. Da ist es wohl logisch, dass viele Dateien durchrutschen. Zudem sind Fälle wie die deinen keine "blatant copyvio", sondern Grenzfälle wo man abschätzen muss, liegt das noch unter oder schon über der Schwelle für einen urheberrechtlichen Schutz. --Túrelio (talk) 14:51, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
Das war auch gar nicht böse gemeint! Ihr Freiwilligen macht eine tolle Arbeit. Nur will ich für meine Uploads kämpfen. Nicht, dass ich deswegen noch gesperrt werden. ;) Es gibt unzählige Beispiel von Produktabbildungen, die in meinen Augen dann ebenfalls gegen die oben genannte Regel verstoßen. Daher freue ich mich über die Diskussion, die du gestartet hast. --Willibald11 (talk) 15:04, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Quick deletionEdit

Hi User:Túrelio,

You've deleted File:NIND MuseeL-bleu ISO3200.jpg minutes after it was marked as a possible copyright violation. This gives no chance to look into the matter and attempt to contact the relevant copyright holder, I don't think that is the proper way to handle deletion requests.

--Trougnouf (talk) 21:29, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Actually that is the proper way of dealing with copyright issues which was sanctioned by the Commons community. It is called "speedy deletion" for a reason. I'm sorry, but you as the uploader would have had to take care of researching the copyright status and obtaining a licence from the copyright holder before uploading the image here. Please see Commons:Project scope/Evidence. De728631 (talk) 22:44, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Winkelvi,
that wouldn't have helped in this case. As I was able to find out now, shortly before tagging File:Jessica Pare 2014.jpg as a duplicate, another user had overwritten your retouched version with the original (un-retouched) image from Flickr.

I am wondering how to re-edit the page so to include my photo since you deleted the "copycat"

This is the original re-uploaded one

The one that I linked originally was "," who is using my picture.

I am trying to figure out how to put it back (Mine) into the like where it was before but using my original one.. Not the one who stole it..

Estimado Turelio, ruego no borres fotos unilateralmente sin consultar previamente. Dicha foto fue puesta bajo alerta por el usuario LMLM. Hablé con dicho usuario, explicándole que sobre dicha foto no había problemas de violación de copyright, puesto que la foto la hice yo, y puedo demostrarlo, tengo incluso el archivo RAW de Photoshop.

Muchas gracias, --Granadino7 (talk) 11:50, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

the evidence suggests otherwise, as the image was published externally earlier (than uploaded to Commons) and in slightly higher resolution.[3] Therefore it did qualify for speedy-deletion. Anyway, as you mentioned evidence to the contrary, I'm willing to undelete it and put it into a regular DR, which allows presentation of further evidence and a discussion. --Túrelio (talk) 13:12, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Dera Túrelio, Thankyou for your help. Unfortunately I am not used to insert image in commons, or at least images like these. I Classified them as "OWN" because I took pics or copy of them. And the date are wrong because i insert the date of today. Really most of the pics are taken by a my collegue here in the University. I'll ask him the date as soon as possible (tomorrow morning) and I'll correct them. About pics that could be erased immediately they are taken by the same photograph that works here for us. If is possible not delete them immediately I can ask and modified the licence. It's possible that another person answer or talk with you instead of me: is Alberto Ugolini, the editir of the rewiew. Thankyou again!! --Ricce (talk) 15:05, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ricce,
I thought something like this. You didn't look like a careless copyviolator. With "date of original photography" I mean the year, of course. That's also important for the evaluation whether some of the older images might be in the public domain already. But therefore we need to know who was the original photographer (and when he/she did die). The still living photographing colleague should send a statement mentioning the file-names of the images, which he had originally shot, and the license under which he wants to release these images. I would recommend not to use PD-self, but instead CC-BY oder CC-BY-SA, which are more appropriate for images of living persons. The permission should be send to . For the wording, see Commons:Modello richiesta di permesso. --Túrelio (talk) 15:24, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Copyvio & blockEdit

Hi Túrelio, Hope all is well,

I don't usually like to ask for DRs to be closed mega early but in this case I was wondering if you could close this DR and then block the uploader (Fieryflames) for a week or 3?,

They're currently edit warring at English Wikipedia and as they've already uploaded 2 copyright violation images something tells me if the image in the DR is deleted they're going to return to immediately upload the same copyvio images,

Many thanks :), –Davey2010Talk 02:13, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying. Upload was indeed a blatant copyvio from Getty; this is always speedy-material. --Túrelio (talk) 06:35, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
No worries and many many thanks for dealing with the DR and editor - It's very much appreciated Túrelio :), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 11:25, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

angebliches "OTRS pending"Edit


könnte Du mal einen Blick auf werfen?

Das Bild wurde offensichtlich ohne Erlaubnis hochgeladen. Nach einer Markierung "no permission" hat der Uploader diese Markierung entfernt und "OTRS kontaktiert" als Text eingefügt (14. September).

Da am 16. Oktober noch immer kein OTRS-Baustein vorhanden war, habe ich das Bild wieder mit "no permission" marktiert. Das wurde von einer IP wieder entfernt und von der IP der Baustein "OTRS pending" eingesetzt. Am nächsten Tag dasselbe Spiel nochmal.

Da der Uploader in deWP ein bezahlter Auftragsschreiber ist und er bzw. die dahinter stehende Agentur bereits vielfach durch Urheberrechtsverletzungen auffiel, vermute ich, dass überhaupt keine Erlaubnis vorliegt und auch über OTRS gar nichts oder nichts Brauchbares eingegangen ist. Ich vermute, die Agentur versucht, mit dem "OTRS pending" die Bildlöschung zu vermeiden (zumindest so lange, bis ihr Auftraggeber gezahlt hat).

Wie kann ich in einem solchen Fall weiter vorgehen? Die Agentur spielt dieses Spiel bei einer ganzen Reihe von Bildern so. --Zxmt (talk) 05:36, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Moin @Zxmt:,
puuh, Kein einfacher Fall. Es sieht mir zumindest nicht nach einer "blatant copyvio" aus. Via Google-Images und Tineye habe ich das Foto sonst nirgendwo gefunden. Der Hochlader sieht auch nicht aus wie ein typischer sorgloser copyvio-Hochlader. Bei seinem anderen, inzwischen gelöschten Upload hatte er auch nicht behauptet selbst der Urheber zu sein, sondern einen anderen Namen als Urheber angegeben und ebenfalls auf eine Genehmigungsmail verwiesen. Von :de war mir das Konto bislang nicht bekannt. Wenn jemand paid-edits offenlegt und sogar den Auftraggeber nennt, sind bewusste URVs m.E. eher unwahrscheinlich, weil das ja auf den Auftraggeber zurückfällt. Das Problem ist die derzeit exzessive Warteschlange von 154 (!!!) Tagen bei OTRS. Das ist für Externe vollkommen unverständlich und eigentlich auch inakzeptabel. Solange aber nicht mehr Leute bei OTRS mitmachen, wird sich das nicht ändern. Die WMF, die auf Mio. $ sitzt, kümmert das offenbar nicht die Bohne. Zurück zum Fall: in der Gesamtwertung würde ich es insgesamt für angemessen halten, dem Hochlader die 150-160 Tage nach Ankündigung des OTRS-Kontakts (14.9.) zu geben, bevor das Bild gelöscht wird. Das ist aber nur meine Einschätzung; man kann auch anders entscheiden. --Túrelio (talk) 07:07, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Danke für die Einschätzung und Rückmeldung: Die Agentur ("Weltraumagentur") arbeitet halt nicht seriös (vgl. inzwischen gesperrtes Hauptkonto Timon Straub und Sockenzoo: ) Benutzer Luuuuuuka ist aber wohl nur "freier Mitarbeiter" und wurde daher (bislang) nicht gesperrt. Die Bild-URVs ziehen sich durch die Artikel der Agentur wie ein roter Faden. Für den Upload werden inzwischen auch Konten angelegt, die notwendige Rechte zumindest möglich erscheinen lassen (bei Swiss Holiday Park z.B. User:SwissHP oder bei Julia Hanzl eben User:JuliaHanzl . Bei anderen Bildern von Hanzl hatte Timon.Straub sogar vermerkt, eine OTRS-Freigabe sei "vorhanden" (vgl. z.B. ) Damit schafft es die Agentur natürlich, ihre Machenschaften weiter zu führen - die Kunden kriegen die Probleme im Artikel bzw. mit den Bildern erst mit, wenn die Agentur längst ihr Geld hat. Aber wenn es keine anderen Möglichkeiten gibt, dann ist das halt so. --Zxmt (talk) 07:38, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Ok. Bei solch einer Vorgeschichte, die mir nicht bekannt war, sieht die Situation natürlich anders aus. Da wäre eine Löschung 7 Tage nach Erstplazierung von no-perm gerechtfertigt. --Túrelio (talk) 10:34, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

File:محلات سبع أبكار وما حلوها.jpgEdit

Hello Túrelio I am not so experienced in using wikimedia, I feel lost sometimes, I received a notification from you concerning deletions of some my uploads, earlier I received a similar notification from the user and to seek help I asked him about the alternative map that is acceptable by wikipedia, he said OpenStreetMap is ok, and I heeded his advice, now the suggested deletions by you are taken from OpenStreetMap, why do you want to delete them?--Abu aamir (talk) 07:03, 18 October 2018 (UTC) below is my conversation with Ronhjones

Hello Ronhjones one of my uploaded sketches was deleted twice on the ground of copyrights without informing me about the alternative, how to display an image of the neighborhood with the surrounding area? my image was a naked imagery of google maps, it was I who defined boundaries and put labels.

I could have taken the same image from Wikimapia but unfortunately Wikimapia is full of scratches. I have seen much bigger images displayed on Wikipedia undeleted. I think that warning needs to be tutorial rather than threatening.

I don't know what information is missing about license in my uploaded imagesEdit

Hi! Turélio, can you help me? I just uploaded the following images:

I have permission on all those images, since they were created by me and the members of the band related to them. But I got a message saying that they were marked to be erased... What do I have to do to avoid it?

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Msmourao (talk • contribs)
let's see about "were created by me and the members of the band":
the 1st one: you wrote "Fotógrafo desconhecido", but it has a clear watermark, likely by the photographer. So, you need to provide his permission.
the 2nd one: you wrote "Fotógrafo desconhecido", but the EXIF data state "Photographer: Marcus Azevedo Fotografia". So, you need to provide his permission.
the 3rd one: you wrote "Criado por Bruno Gozzi". Ok, then you need get him send his permission to

Lung capacity measures.pngEdit

Can you explain why did you sack File:Lung capacity measures.png (histlogsabuse log)? Aren’t you handy with tracing history of Commons files? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:46, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Because the now remaining image is simply (though only slightly) better, I reversed the requested duplicate-deletion. I thought indeed about that and compared both images. --Túrelio (talk) 07:23, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Because you disagreed with the original tagging, you had—at very least—to document reasons for your disagreement, without making me to walk here. Now your opinion is overridden by three Commons users, mirroring my situation of October 21. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:34, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
All quality-related things aside, what originally was w:File:Lung.png was released by its creator, Someone_else, into public domain, whereas the Vietnamese claimed {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}} for his/her stuff. You attempted to erase Someone_else’s {{PD-self}} from publicly visible record, which is unacceptable. Merging histories could be an option which possibly would go against one Incnis Mrsi’s ideas, but could preserve the attribution chain. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:28, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

ok, you are probably correct about the missing notification to you about my reversal. So, sorry for that.
For me this was just a quality issue. --Túrelio (talk) 10:30, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Willem Bartel van der Kooi - De minnebriefEdit

Sehr geehrter Túrelio,

gestern, 20. Oktober um 17:22 Uhr, haben Sie die Datei File:Willem Bartel van der Kooi - De minnebrief.jpg gelöscht und diese Seite weitergeleitet nach File:De minnebrief Rijksmuseum SK-A-1064.jpeg.

Die erste (gelöschte) Datei ist in die Orginal-Große von 5.708 x 6.934 Pixel, die letztere in einer Große von nur 2.164 × 2.652 Pixel. Ich habe probiert um die Datei "De minnebrief Rijksmuseum SK-A-1064.jpeg" zu überschreiben mit der Datei in die Orginal-Große, aber das ist mir nicht gelungen.

Bitte setzen Sie die Datei in die Orginal-Große zurück.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen, --Bouwe Brouwer (talk) 10:56, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Hallo @Bouwe Brouwer:,
normalerweise würde ich dir natürlich recht geben, dass die höher aufgelöste Version anstelle der geringer aufgelösten bleiben sollte. In diesem Fall habe ich die beiden Dateien aber recht genau verglichen und bemerkt, dass die höher aufgelöste Version von sichtbar schlechterer Qualität war als die andere Version. Deshalb habe ich so gehandelt. Ich kann die gelöschte Version wieder herstellen, wenn du das möchtest; aber trotzdem sollte die aktuelle Version (auch) bleiben, weil sie einfach besser aussieht. (jetzt bin ich aber ca. 2 h offline) --Túrelio (talk) 16:27, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio, ich habe die beide Bilder auch genau verglichen. Die höher aufgelöste Version hat weniger Kratzer und ist farbechter. Siehe zum Beispiel die Augenbraue des Jungen: Die niedriger aufgelöste Version hat ein Kratzer durch die Augenbraue, die höher aufgelöste Version nicht. Ein anderes Beispiel ist die Hosen des Jungen: In der höher aufgelösten Version ist die Hose farbecht, bei der niedriger aufgelöste Version tendiert die grüne Hose ein bisschen zu Weiß. Ich denke, es ist besser beide Versionen nebeneinander zu haben. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn du die gelöschte Version wiederherstellen würde. --Bouwe Brouwer (talk) 19:27, 28 October 2018 (UTC).

OK. Restored. --Túrelio (talk) 19:32, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

TURELIO, my name is Alberto Ugolini, I am the editor in chief of the scientific journal in the subject. I think you know that EEE is a serious and good scientific journal (formerly Monitore Zoologico Italiano, founded at the endo of '800. I believe that it should be sufficient to convince you that our contribution to Wiki is a serious one. About the images: all the images are submitted together with the reference of their origin. I am sure you can imagine that it is impossible to know who was the author of a picture taken in the early '900! However, in this case we added the name of the person or institution that sent to me the picture. Frankly speaking I don't see any problem of copyright.

Fehler in BildernEdit

Hallo Túrelio. Erstmal danke für die Reparatur der zwei Bilder (Quellheiligtum Sudelfelsen achteckiges Bau mit Quader aus Kalksinter .jpg und Sudelfelsbrunnen.jpg) von mir gestern. Allerdings habe ich keine Ahnung was mit den Bildern nicht stimmte. Im Moment habe ich keine Kamera und muss das Handy nutzen. Dort habe ich Open Camera drauf. Seltsamerweise scheint der Fehler nicht bei allen Bildern aufzutreten die ich aufnehme. Wenn Du mir eventuell sagen könntest was bei den Bildern nicht stimmte, kann ich die Bilder eventuell in Zukunft auch selbst prüfen und entsprechend reparieren. --Starkiller3010 (talk) 18:40, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Starkiller3010,
beim Upload (oder kurz danach) wird automatisch (Bot) geprüft, ob die Datei irgendwelchen Code (Daten) enthält, der nicht zu dem jeweiligen Format gehört. Falls ja, wird die Datei entsprechend zur Löschung oder Reinigung markiert. Bei JPEG-Dateien, bei denen so etwas anscheinend am häufigsten vorkommt, kann man z.B. mit der Freeware IrfanView solchen "Fremdcode" einfach verlustlos beseitigen, d.h. ohne dass das Bild nochmal komprimiert werden muss. Ich habe keine Ahnung woher dieser Code stammt, es könnte sowohl die Kamera/Handy sein also auch darin oft ohne Benutzereinfluss ablaufende Prozesse. Vielleicht findest du auf COM:Forum jemanden, der dir mehr dazu sagen kann. --Túrelio (talk) 18:50, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

Messages about photos without permissions that might be deletedEdit

Dear Turelio,

I just tried sending this message earlier, but it doesn't seem to have registered, so I'm trying again. I'm a new Wikipedia editor, so I'm having trouble understanding the system.

I just now saw that I had received messages from you about photo permissions. One message concerned the page "Chiiori" and a photo of the Floorhearth. I own the copyright for this but don't know how to validate that.

The other messages concerned photos I had uploaded for a new page for "Ronnarong Khampha," (the page is still in "sandbox" stage). The people who took the photos have given verbal permission, but that's all I have. If this is a problem, please delete those photos and I'll upload others later with no copyright problems.

Also - while I was able a few minutes ago to see your messages, now I can't find them anymore. Where do I go on the Wikipedia menu (the alerts, the notices?) to see them again.

I'm sorry that I'm baffled by the Wikipedia system, since I'm just beginning.

--Túrelio (talk) 11:28, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Dear Turelio,

Thank you for your quick reply. Concerning the photos:

* File:Ronnarong - photo 1.jpg , it will take time to get the permission from Pandit Watanakasivish, so for the time being, please delete this. I already deleted all the photos from the draft of the Ronnarong Khampha page I had created, which is still, I believe, in my "sandbox." But I don't know if they really were deleted. Please take care of that for me. Later, when I get the proper permissions, I'll start over with these photos.
  • File:Chiiori irori floor hearths.jpg, the photo is credited to Alex Kerr, <censored>. I took the picture and I have selectively let certain publications use it to illustrate articles about the house Chiiori in Iya Valley (which belongs to me). I never gave permission to anyone else to use this photo on Wikipedia before, so I can't imagine how it appeared in the "Irori: Jantung Rumah Tradisional Jepang" article earlier. How can I prove this photo is mine and clear it for permission on Wikipedia?
File:"Civilize" 2016.jpg, I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that I had claimed it as my "own work"; that must be one of the mistakes I made in uploading, due to lack of experience with the Wikipedia system. It really was taken by Pravich; I wasn't aware that it had been earlier uploaded to Facebook. It might take some time to get permission from Pravich for this, so please delete for the time being.

Thank you very much, Xinqizi (talk) 16:08, 28 October 2018 (UTC) (Alex Kerr)

Hi Xinqizi,
I've deleted the 1st and 3rd image listed above. I've also "censored" your realname, assuming that you want to retain your pseudonymity in the userspace. WRT your question: if you have a stable email address which is associated with your name, you may simply send an email from it to (OTRS) stating that you are the author and/or rights holder of File:Chiiori irori floor hearths.jpg and want to release it under the choosen free license. The OTRS-volunteers, who treat your email confidentially, will check your email (and eventually ask for more information or not) and after some time will put a so-called OTRS ticket on the image page, and everything is fine. --Túrelio (talk) 17:01, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Dear Turelio,

I'm still getting used to working with the Wikipedia messaging format. I wrote earlier to answer you, but twice my reply seems to have disappeared when I published the changes, so I'm trying again.

Thank you for removing the 2 photos on the Ronnarong Khampha page. I'll upload those later when I get permissions from the photographers. Also thank you for censoring my realname, as I do wish to retain pseudonymity in the userspace. I've sent an email from my personal email address, using the Wikipedia provided email template, granting permission for the use of File:Chiiori irori floor hearths.jpg.

Today every work of art is copyrighted. Only the author/photographer or the rightsholder can release it under a free license (which does not mean it's not copyrighted).
So, if you received the image by Chris Tonietto, who has it also on her Facebook page[5], you need to ask her to send a statement of permission to in which she needs to confirm that she is the rights holder and that she agrees to release this image under the choosen cc-by-sa license. --Túrelio (talk) 17:16, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

If that doesn't seem possible, you might upload the native image file (as it came out of your digital camera). This one can later be deleted. --Túrelio (talk) 07:34, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

File: Peggy-Sue in Zuid-AfrikaEdit

Dear Túrelio, you marked this picture as a copyright violation referring to an instagram account. That is my instagram account and the picture is made with my camera. Therefor I'm entitled to the photograph and I'm free to use it. Thanks, P. --Psfv2018 (talk) 09:25, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Psfv2018,
ok. Anyway, as it has been found on Instagram, you should send an email from your Instagram-Account to just confirming that it is your work and you uploaded it by yourself or agreed to have it uploaded to Commons under the choosen free license. However, I should warn you that this image might be considered promotional and nominated for deletion, especially if it's not used in a Wikipedia article. --Túrelio (talk) 09:40, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Revdel requestsEdit

Can you please revdel the intermediate versions on File:IMI Kolkata view.png as they are copyright, see e.g. I see you warned the uploader multiple times, but they keep overwriting files and uploading copyright protected images. They were already indef blocked on enwiki for similar behaviour. --Muhandes (talk) 14:44, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. There is another revision under File:IMI Kolkata view.png with the same issue. There are also revisions under File:Flagofraw.JPG, File:India-Kolkata-locator-map.PNG, File:Flag of Central Industrial Security Force.jpg which I suspect are copyvio due to sophisticated logo.

Hello Túrelio,

I see you deleted the updated logo File:Schokinag Logo.jpg that I had uploaded for it to be included in the following article. I am working on the article on behalf of the company itself, since the current article is highly outdated. The company gave permission to use the logo in the article. Of course the logo is, as any company logo, under copyright. However, Wikipedia is full of company logos and even though I did read the guidelines on this topic, I cannot understand what it takes for the logo picture to be allowed in a Wikipedia article. Could you please explain this to us? I read in some previous talks that you told someone that a confirmation of the rightsholdership needs to be sent to Would that solve the problem? We would really like to include the logo and I will be looking forward to receiving your indications about this.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards, Alesschoki (talk) 13:47, 6 November 2018 (UTC)Alesschoki

Hallo Alesschoki,
du schreibst ja anscheinend auf deutsch. Also, Logos sind generell eine schwierige Angelegenheit. Auf :de (lokal) wurden sie lange irgendwie toleriert, obwohl die rechtliche Lage eher klar dagegen sprach. Bei dem nun gelöschten Logo File:Schokinag Logo.jpg könnte man diskutieren, ob das überhaupt ausreichend Schöpfungshöhe aufweist, um urheberrechtlich geschützt zu sein. Das ist meist eine schwierige Frage, wenn man kein entsprechendes Gerichtsurteil dazu hat. Du schreibst, dass du die Genehmigung der Firma für "use the logo in the article" hast. Solche "Wikipedia-only"-Genehmigungen werden auf Commons aber grundsätzlich nicht zugelassen. D.h., du brauchst eine allgemeine Freigabe unter einer freien Lizenz (siehe COM:L), die eine Firma natürlich ungern geben wird. Wir setzen auf Logo-Bilder zwar immer auch den Trademark-Baustein; ob das in einem Rechtsstreit um mißbräuchliche Nutzung ausreicht, ist aber nicht klar. Am einfachsten wäre es noch, wenn du das Logo irgendwo im Freien angebracht findest; dann kannst es nämlich via Panoramafreiheit aufnehmen und hochladen. --Túrelio (talk) 16:50, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Yesterday, you removed the image Jeanmarcmartel.jpg from the page i am currently developping. I actually have an email sent by the author of that picture authorizing it's edition on Wiki.

Hi @Kyriaki Verrou:, sorry, I need to reply in english. Do I understand you correctly, that you shot the original photo File:A. Celia & Verticalismus.jpg by yourself? If yes, there is still the problem, that the photo shows (in its middle[6]) a copyrighted artwork of a living artist.

Portuguesa de DesportosEdit

Hi, I uploaded a picture called "Escudo da Portuguesa de Desportos" which was deleted. The picture refers to a brazilian football club logo, so I think that should be considered a public image. I am going to upload it again and embed it into the club page at Wikipedia, since the old logo, which is defuncted since 2014, is still there and needs to be changed.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Fabio J. Evangelista (talk • contribs) 13:36, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi Fabio J. Evangelista,
"public" has no relevance with regard to copyright. The page, from wich you took this logo, is not under a free license.[7] How old is this logo? --Túrelio (talk) 13:40, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply Turélio,

this logo is from 1994 and was readopted in 2014. I found another source, this time from the oficial club site [8]. Can I upload it? Is there something I need to write in the upload form?

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Fabio J. Evangelista (talk • contribs) 13:53, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
I fear, no. This site clearly states "Associação Portuguesa de Desportos © 2018 – Todos os direitos reservado". So, the only possibility seems to be, that you ask them directly for a permission. See here for a template. Important: the permission has to be avlid for everybody, not only for Wikipedia. --Túrelio (talk) 14:00, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Turélio, I looked for the old image page in Commons [9] and it refers to the same link I posted before [10]. Since the logo was updated, the link refers to a different picture now. The following notes were added to the picture page:

"This image, or text, is presented, is made only of simple geometric shapes or text. Are not limited to the originality necessary for the protection of rights. It must be open to restrictive restrictions. See WP: PD # PD-textlogo fonts or discussion for more information."

"This image of simple geometry is ineligible in copyright and therefore in the public domain, because it consists entirely of information that is common property and does not contain any original authorship."

"This work contains materials in which you may be subject to trademark laws in one or more jurisdictions.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that no rights in this trademark are disregarded. See our general warning.

Can I upload the new logo adding the same notes in the upload form?

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Fabio J. Evangelista (talk • contribs) 14:28, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
IMO not, as the new logo looks less conventional to me than the old one File:Portuguesa de Desportos.png. However, guessing whether something shows enough creativity to be copyrightable, i.e. above the threshold of originality, is often a judgement call. If you simply upload it instead of asking the owner for a permission, you are risking that someone else will nominate it for deletion. So, it's your decision. The {{trademark}} should always be added to logo uploads, but it doesn't refer to the copyright-question. --Túrelio (talk) 14:42, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, the mere fact that an image can be found/seen on a website, has no meaning for its copyright. The link which you provided for File:Bruno Henrique SEP.jpg leads actually to the Flickr page, where the image is labeled as "All rights reserved". I do not say/think that you did intentionally link to a copyrighted image. However, you claimed that this image is without copyright (CC-0). For images, which are not truly your own work, you cannot do this if you are not absolutely sure. --Túrelio (talk) 15:07, 12 November 2018 (UTC)


Hallo Túrelio,
kannst Du mir bitte bei folgenden Fragen helfen:
Gibt es einen Bot, der Duplikate findet?
Kann man ganze Kategorien mit Duplikaten löschen (z.B. hier: Category:Wild Flowers - Pratt (duplicates) oder ist nur der Weg über Einzelbilder mit "dupe" möglich?
Dank und Grüße. Orchi (talk) 16:52, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Orchi,
also, ich weiß zwar vom duplicate detector, der zielt aber auf Textvergleich. Sonst ist mir zumindest kein Dupe-Finder bekannt. Frag vielleicht mal auf dem Forum oder der VP.
Das gilt analog für Datei-Mengen in einer Kategorie. Das Massen-Löschtool setzt allein beim Hochlader an, d.h. es kann massenweise Dateien eines Hochladers löschen, aber nicht Dateien, die nur eine Kategorie als Gemeinsamkeit haben. --Túrelio (talk) 17:10, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Olá Turélio,

Nos solicitaram a troca do logo que se encontra nessa página pois na busca via Google é uma das primeiras que aparece.

A empresa sofreu uma alteração no seu logo, pequena, mas precisa ser alterada. Caso necessite confirmar essa alteração verá o mesmo em uso aqui...

Fiz a inclusao do novo logo no dia 12/10/2018 e inicialmente pareceu que um bot tinha feito a retirada por infringir direitos de marca, mas procurando melhor verifiquei que você excluiu o mesmo (

Caso não possa reverter isso para que possamos trocar por favor nos oriente a melhor forma de fazer essa alteração.

Bonjour @3Cpasteur:,
ok, this seems credible to me. However, you should not simply have re-uploaded this image, as it had been deleted as (assumed) copyvio. The correct way would have been to file the image at Commons:Undeletion requests. (Just for the next time this happens.) In case my admin-colleague, who had tagged this image as suspected copyvio, asks you about the re-upload, you may direct him to this discussion. --Túrelio (talk) 19:46, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Tris T7:,
as I see from your talkpage, you had been notified about the speedy-deletion request for File:King Power Group กลุ่มบริษัท คิง เพาเวอร์ Photographed by Trisorn Triboon 03.jpg. Speedy-deletion requests do not require to wait for feedback from the uploader. Anyway, the problem was not that anybody doubted that you shot the photo by yourself. The copyright problem consists in that you made a photo of a copyrighted work, i.e. a derivative. Except in cases that fall under the local freedom-of-panorama exception, this requires a permission from the original copyright-holder. You will find a practical instruction at COM:CB. --Túrelio (talk) 09:36, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

One thing i do not understand as Thai Law we allow to use them because Event for public especially i am press for the events that mean they allow me to contribution it ? what about if i change license as this file ? will it be ok ? hope you can explain for me to understand about it.. thank you in advance. Tris T7 10:20, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

There are 2 important principles to obey here:
1) Wikipedia and Wikimedia-Commons are NOT "press". So, laws "for press/media" do not apply. In addition, our licensing policy COM:L requires that all uploads to Commons can legally be used by everybody, who complies with the license terms, for any kind of use, including commercial use. The use of typical "press photos" is usually restricted to reporting about the related item or event and are thereby not allowed on Commons/Wikipedia.
2) Only the copyright owner/holder can give a license/permission. So, you need to ask the legal department of Walt Disney Thailand to give you the permission to release your own photo, showing their content, under the choosen free license, which has to be sent to Important: do not ask a "permission for Wikipedia", we will not accept this. --Túrelio (talk) 10:31, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

I was wondering if I could use the tag {{Fairuse}} or {{Non-free logo}} since the image is in lower resolution in just under 150px (approx)? Can I also use the tag {{PD-Philippines}}?

Hi @Moonrivers:, your upload came from the website, which is clearly labeled as "Copyright © 2018 Divine Word College of San Jose. All Rights Reserved". So, if we consider the seal/logo as copyrightable, you need a permission from its creator or copyright-holder. Fair-use is not an option, as Commons does/cannot allow fair-use material. Also, I doubt that PD-Philippines is applicable here. --Túrelio (talk) 20:03, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio,

danke für Dein ausführliches Feedback zu den gelöschten Bildern.

Muss ich die Bilder (nach meiner Bestätigungsmail) nochmals hochladen oder werden diese dann durch einen Kollegen wieder sichtbar gemacht?

Hallo @Klandrea:,
nein, du musst das nicht ändern und du musst die Identität auch nicht öffentlich darlegen oder erklären. Es reicht, diese gegenüber OTRS zu bestätigen. Allerdings wäre es hilfreich, wenn du dir überlegst, ob du hier nur eigene Fotos hochladen willst oder auch fremde (unter freier Lizenz versteht sich). Im ersteren Fall wäre es gut, wenn du das in deiner Bestätigungsmail an OTRS so schreibst, damit nach zukünftigen Uploads der OTRS-Prozess nicht wieder neu angestoßen werden muss. Die gelöschten Bilder musst du nicht neu hochladen. Ich kann sie mit wenigen Klicks ent-löschen, sobald ich von OTRS ein Zeichen bekommen. --Túrelio (talk) 08:46, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Latin lambdaEdit

  • Must be a trick there, then. I recategorized this users’ (mostly fanciful) latin lambda images a few months ago, creating categories that cover the confusion between "ʎ" and "ƛ" (and "λ", of course) that included the word "misdrawn".

~~I geuss you was not aware but when you redirect a file that was uploaded from pkiwiki like this one File:PikiWiki Israel 51557 a street in the south of tel aviv.jpg And you change the name to something else like File:Jaffa Een aanTel Aviv grenzende straat met winkels en winkelend publiek, Bestanddeelnr 255-1304.jpg The file is lost to pikiwiki And you get an empty file

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Shaula (talk • contribs) 09:58, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi Shaula,
quite a number of images, which had previously been uploaded from PikiWiki, were tagged as duplicates (not by me), as a batch of images from the Dutch ANEFO collection, sometimes in higher resolution, had been uploaded. When processed as a duplicate, a redirect from the now deleted image to the remaining one is created, so that neither internally nor externally a 404 should result when the old filename is called. --Túrelio (talk) 10:18, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

~~ where can I find all the knesset pictures that you removed?????????????

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Shaula (talk • contribs) 10:31, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Did you read my above coment?
You could just follow the redirect. Go to File:Jaffa Een aanTel Aviv grenzende straat met winkels en winkelend publiek, Bestanddeelnr 255-1304.jpg, scroll to the bottom of the page, where you see in the last line the redirect to File:PikiWiki Israel 51557 a street in the south of tel aviv.jpg.
If this is a systematic problem, I would recommend you to talk to User:Vysotsky, who identifies all duplicates of the ANEFO images and tags them for duplicate-deletion. --Túrelio (talk) 10:36, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you both. Túrelio is correct. To give an example: this file now includes the data of the PikiWiki image, incl. English and Hebrew description, and PikiWiki reference and number. I chose this method because the ANEFO updates contain more and better information, such as a link to the original file at the Dutch National Archives, current license and the correct name of the photographer. Vysotsky (talk) 10:48, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
I now see the problem, and will stop "duplicating" the PikiWiki files until I have found a solution for the linking problem. I will fix the old cases. Vysotsky (talk) 13:38, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. That would be great. --Túrelio (talk) 14:04, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Philip J Fry: seems you are correct. I've restored the image. --Túrelio (talk) 21:02, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
You are deleting content without realizing the templates. An IP is placing massive templates to destroy for annoying. For example, File:Y mañana será otro día.png, File:LaMamádel10.png ‎, File:Sharon la Hechicera.png, File:Laqueridadelcentauro.png and more. Then, you should see in detail the templates of those files that you deleted. Or at least open a delete query before deleting files massively.--Philip J Fry (talk) 10:35, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but here you are wrong. I considered all these logos and found them clearly not to be mere text logos, as opposed to File:La reina del flow logotipo.png for example. I can put them in a regular DR, but I have no doubt about the outcome. --Túrelio (talk) 11:20, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of image taken from a scientific journal with proper citationEdit

Hi Turelio,

You recently deleted an image from a wikipage that I am editing, citing that it was missing a license. However, considering that it is an image of chemical structures of a figure from a paper, I am under the impression that there are no potential copyright violations here, particularly since I provided the proper citation for its use. If you could clarify for me what the issue is here that would be much appreciated!

(talk page stalker) Crediting the source and authors is not sufficient. Any upload here must either be out of copyright due to old age or being much too simple, or it needs to have a free licence from the original authors.

Category:Uncategorized images of temples was emptied out by pushing everything back into the main categoryEdit

The category had a template {{empty category}}. It was also quite full. User:Tm came along and pushed all the media back into the main Category:Temples. He also reverted my re-addition of {{empty category}}. There are many such "uncategorized" categories in Wikimedia Commons. User:Tm seems to have a problem with it without ever telling anyone why, after having been asked about it several times. I would like this category to be undeleted and the media restored.

Reasons why to have "uncategorized images of...." categories
The reasons why I suggest having these "uncategorized images of...." categories is because: 1. Having main categories that are "clean" encourages many uploaders to actually categorise their uploads into more correct categories themselves instead of just piling them onto the multitudes that are already there, 2. Uncategorized images can now be found via the category system so people who enjoy categorizing media can find them easier, 3. Having vast amounts of uncategorized media in main categories can bring problems for computers that are slow or for people who have slow internetbconnections, 4. Having many uncategorised images in the main category can be confusing for new users who try to search for media via the category system, 5. Uploaders who upload media to main categories tend to to be new and often, the categories that they place their media in tend to often be incorrect (as in needing much further categorisation). - Takeaway (talk) 20:41, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

@Takeaway: Then categorize them properly, instead of burying away the problem and if you identify what or where the image depicts, move them to unidentified categories, instead of creating a parallel category, just to "show" and clean the main room, but bury the "garbage" to a backroom. Tm (talk) 20:44, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
I categorise many images as my stats will show. I have hardly ever had any problems with my categorisations unlike User:Tm as his talk page shows, and also counting the numerous times people complained about him on the Admin boards. - Takeaway (talk) 20:47, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
If someone seems highly concerned about getting a high edit count, it would be user:Tm. My style is quite different and much slower because I actually care about (most) of the media that I categorise and want to do them justice. - Takeaway (talk) 21:01, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Just to recap what this is actually all about: I am asking to have Category:Uncategorized images of ...., and not have them deleted whenever user:Tm comes around. They do that by either pushing the media back to the main category, or, as they often did, push them into "unidentified images of..." category, or they go on a frenzied categorising spree as they are doing now with Category:Uncategorized images of Bangkok to empty it out as quickly as possible and request it to be deleted just to prove the point . - Takeaway (talk) 21:16, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You might want to make this a wider discussion. I have been part of several discussions where the consensus was to leave uncategorized or unidentified things in a main category. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:44, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Where would be the best place to start a discussion on this subject? At the Village Pump? - Takeaway (talk) 23:17, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
First, I'd decide what categories you want to include: uncategorized, unidentified, or both. If both, I'd use the Village pump. If only one, I'd use the highest-level category for that (maybe Category:Media needing categories by subject or Category:Unidentified subjects) but publicize it at the Village pump. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:06, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
@Takeaway, I have no problem to restore needed categories. But, I agree with the users here that more general questions should be discussed at VP. --Túrelio (talk) 08:02, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you both. I will suggest keeping both categories as they are each very different (at least they are for me): "uncategorized" for those needing further categorization, and "unidentified" for those files that can not be identified from the available information, thus hoping for someone who just knows what it is. Regards, - Takeaway (talk) 09:18, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
@Tm:, please stop emptying out these "uncategorized" categories until after the discussion at VP which I will start soon. - Takeaway (talk) 09:25, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Copyright objections: Bob JonesEdit

Hi, Turelio

I noticed you just flagged a couple of photos I uploaded on the page about Bob Jones. I can see you regarding the first photo. The photo of the book is one I took myself, but the photo in the photo is not and I understand how there could be some confusion.

Regarding the second photo, I don't think it's quite right to say that it's a book cover. Really, the photo is of a book. All books have covers and, unless it's going to be impermissible to upload photos of books at all, photos of books will necessarily show their covers. In my opinion, a photo of a book is materially different to an electronic file of the cover itself.

Please let me know what you think.


— Preceding unsigned comment added by MurdochNewman (talk • contribs) 23:22, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
It is indeed generally impermissible to upload photos of books at all, unless you own the license to the book itself (or the book is so old as for its license to have expired). It's the same as for any creative work. DMacks (talk) 05:47, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Wiki commons pictures .Edit

hi Turelio ,

I saw all my pictures were nog approved , these are in fact all my pictures and ik took them from my facebook page .

Some of them were made smaller so they fitted in better , I put several original pictures on my Wiki Common page . They were alle made by my mother and father and I have negatives and positives from the elder pictures .

Some of them were made with my smartphone , the pic with the English police officers was made with my smartphone . I think I'm not so special a professional woul'd take pictures of me . I took him from my FB and put him on my computer , like all the others .

I not only took my pictures with me on it because I'm narcisstic but also so I could prove they're mine and no money or rights can be involved . Because I was not that special as racer nor person .

Please reconsider , can you give me some advice ?

I contributed several pages and pieces on pages not with my account but some without logging in at first .

Hello there thanks for deleting that arguably non commons image.

The image when posted here is a little more clearly under commons, in my opinion. This is a "pro" flickr user, it was used by and they have not allowed derivatives, it has stood that way for a number of years. Do you agree and if not how do we go about getting the evidence? E.3 (talk) 20:38, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi E3, regrettably the Flickr user put it under Commons-noncompliante CC-ND license.
But apart from this practical problem, there is a general problem here: the right portion of the Flickr image is identical to the version en:File:The_Dress_(viral_phenomenon).png, which is under fair-use on :en and is credited to a "Cecilia Bleasdale", which suggest that she may be the original photographer. As long as we don't know know under what circumstances the Flickr image has been shot, we have to assume, it's just a copy of the original image and thereby likely copvvio. Of course, you may ask the Flickr user for an explaination. --Túrelio (talk) 21:03, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Re: Manisha Koirala image deletionEdit

Hi, you recently deleted an image uploaded by me (File:Manisha Koirala promoting Sanju.jpg), but it was covered by this OTRS ticket. Also used at File:Yuvan Shankar Raja exclusive HQ Photos Silverscreen.jpg, File:Thambi Ramaiah Exclusive Photos for Silverscreen.jpg and possibly others. Please look into it? DeluxeVegan (talk) 08:33, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi DeluxeVegan, but why wasn't there any hint to a permission? As I am not an OTRS volunteer, I can't look into the ticket. --Túrelio (talk) 08:39, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
I tried entering the number, but was stopped from submitting the edit since I wasn't having the required permission. What do you suggest be done next? Can the image possibly be restored? DeluxeVegan (talk) 08:49, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
You should try to contact the OTRS volunteer, who worked previously on the ticket with the other image, and ask him/her to drop me a note that the deleted image is also covered. --Túrelio (talk) 08:55, 24 December 2018 (UTC)


Moin! Du hattest bei File:Aachen, Brunnen -Fischpüddelchen- -- 2016 -- 2740.jpg das FoP-Template entfernt, da der Urheber des Brunnens bereits mehr als 70 Jahre verstorben ist. Das hat mich doch etwas rätseln lassen. Der Brunnen ist damit nicht mehr urheberrechtlich geschützt. Das stimmt. Aber FoP gilt meiner Meinung nach trotzdem noch. Aus meiner Sicht sind das zwei verschiedene paar Schuhe. Sicherlich hat FoP einen herausragenden Einfluss auf Objekte, deren Urheberin oder Urheber eben nicht unter die 70-Jahre-Regel fällt. Irgendwie verwirrt mich dieser juristische Kram immer wieder. Das FoP-Template habe ich erst einmal wieder hereingenommen, bin aber eher verwirrt, ob du nicht doch recht hast. Meiner Meinung nach ist es auf jeden Fall nicht falsch, vielleicht aber unnötig. --XRay talk 07:11, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi XRay,
der FoP-Baustein ist erforderlich, 1) um zu dokumentieren, dass das Foto überhaupt rechtmäßig aufgenommen bzw. hier hochgeladen wurde, und 2) informiert er Nachnutzer, dass bei der Nutzung einiges zu beachten ist, was wiederum von Land zu Land variieren kann. All dies zusätzlich zu den Lizenzbedingungen des Fotografen für das Foto an sich.
Mit dem Erlöschen des Urheberrechts am abgebildeten Kunstwerk fallen alle aus dem notwendigen Rückgriff auf FoP resultierenden Einschränkungen weg. Es gelten nur noch die Lizenzbedingungen des Fotografen. Deshalb ist der FoP-Baustein nach Erlöschen des Urheberrechts im Ursprungsland nicht mehr angebracht bzw. sogar irreführend, da er juristische Hürden aufbaut, die garnicht mehr bestehen. Intern kommt da noch hinzu, dass es nicht absolut ausgeschlossen ist, dass irgendwann einmal der FoP-Rückgriff für Fotos von Werken, die in den USA (Server-Standort) nicht unter FoP fallen (alle nicht-Gebäude), untersagt werden könnte. Dann wäre ein unnötiger FoP-Baustein ein Löschrisiko.
Ich werde jetzt keinen Editwar über den FoP-Baustein mit dir anfangen, hoffe aber, dich überzeugt zu haben. Andernfalls kannst du gerne eine Diskussion darüber auf dem Forum starten. --Túrelio (talk) 07:55, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
Danke für die Info. Du hast ja sicherlich gemerkt, dass mir die Verwendung nicht ganz klar ist. Im Hinterkopf habe ich, dass mir die einzelne Korrektur nicht hilft. Wenn's irgendwie möglich ist, würde ich dann eher versuchen, den FoP-Baustein bei allen meinen Bildern zu entfernen, bei denen er unnötig erscheint. Ich denke oft weniger an das einzelne Bild, sondern mehr an alle meine hochgeladenen Bilder. Ich werde es mir mal durch den Kopf gehen lassen und ggf. eine passende Lösung schaffen. --XRay talk 08:56, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
Ich wollte mich nur noch einmal kurz melden. Du hast meinen Gedankengang durchaus angeregt. Mittlerweile entsteht ein Algorithmus, der überflüssige FoP-Templates bei meinen Bildern wieder entfernt. Es fehlen noch ein paar Parameter, aber es geht schon ganz gut. Das wird zwar alles noch dauern, aber es stimmt, das Template muss nur dort stehen, wo auch etwas (noch) schutzwürdiges abgebildet ist. Vielen Dank noch einmal für deine Erläuterungen! Mir ist schon daran gelegen, dass so etwas stimmig ist. -- Und wenn ich schon schreibe: Ich wünsche dir einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr! --XRay talk 10:02, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

File:Haus am Checkpoint Charlie 01.jpgEdit

No objection here, just trying to understand: why any need for {{FoP-Germany}} on File:Haus am Checkpoint Charlie 01.jpg? What is the "work" in question? The building? Or something else? - Jmabel ! talk 08:46, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Jmabel, per its outer appearance I consider this building above above threshold of originality and thereby copyrightable. Architect Peter Eisenman is still alive. So, he might still claim copyright. As we have FoP exception in Germany, the FoP template is required 1) to document that taking & uploading this image was legitimate, and 2) to warn re-users that they have to check a bit more than just the photographer's license-terms. --Túrelio (talk) 08:51, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

it might help if you ask to send a confirmation from their official emil address to in which they should confirm that you are the creator/designer of that logo (not just the actual file) and that they agree with releasing it under the choosen free license.
My additional recommendation: in order to prevent others using this logo in a way that might be detrimental to Foulard Bianchi, they should register it as "trademark" or alike. --Túrelio (talk) 08:32, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio,
weißt Du, ob es hier eine Möglichkeit gibt, diese Bilder: vom 19. und 20. Dezember 2018 zu reparieren?
Dank für Deine Mühe und Grüße.
Orchi (talk) 18:49, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Orchi,
"reparieren" kann man das m.E. nicht. Dieses Problem ist an sich altbekannt, kam früher aber sehr selten vor. Seit gefühlt 1-2 Jahren ist es jedoch sehr häufig geworden bei neuen Uploads. Es wurde m.W. auch schon auf Meta bzw. dem techn. Äquivalent thematisiert, anscheinend hat sich aber nichts geändert. Ich habe den Verdacht, dass die Ursache im Upload-Prozess zu suchen ist, denn dass plötzlich so viel mehr Kameras bzw. Smartphones defekt geworden sind, ist eher unwahrscheinlich. Letztlich bleibt derzeit nur der erneute Upload. Ich habe den Hochlader darum gebeten. --Túrelio (talk) 10:15, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio,

Hi Orchi,
das war die letzten Monate immer wieder Thema, siehe z.B. Commons:Village_pump#How_to_prevent_mass_duplicate_uploads?. Ob man inzwischen eine brauchbare Lösung (1. das überhaupt zu verhindern, 2. für die automatische Erkennung post-factum) gefunden hat, entzieht sich meiner Kenntnis. --Túrelio (talk) 22:31, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Löschung von Bilddatei Atsushi KagaEdit

Hallo Túrelio,

Erlaubnis des Künstlers haben seinen von (uns verfassten) Wikipedia Artikel mit einem Bild von seinem Werk zu bestücken...?

Hallo Nihongaku,
das Problem mit diesem Bild ist, dass sich die Genehmigung auf "non-commercial use and educational purpose" beschränkte. Gemäß unseren Lizenz-Richtlinien COM:L dürfen auf Commons nur Bilder hochgeladen werden, die zur beliebigen Verwendung, einschließlich kommerzieller Nutzung, freigegeben sind. Dieses Prinzip ist natürlich oft ein Hindernis, aber leider nicht zu ändern. --Túrelio (talk) 14:47, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Löschung File:BWE EC 43 Berlin Lichterfelde Ost - Zuschnitt.jpg - Lizenzwechsel erfolgtEdit

Hallo Túrelio, du hast die Datei File:BWE EC 43 Berlin Lichterfelde Ost - Zuschnitt.jpg gelöscht mit der Begründung, dass die Lizenz auf Flickr keine Bearbeitung des Bildes zuließe. Wenn man sich die Flickr-Seite anschaut, scheint das auf den ersten Blick auch zu stimmen. Dennoch ist dem nicht so.
Ich achte beim Hochladen von Flickr-Bildern hierher immer genauestens auf die Lizenz und schaue lieber drei Mal drauf. Daher habe ich versucht zu recherchieren, und Bingo: Für die Orginialdatei File:BWE EC 43 Berlin Lichterfelde Ost.jpg hat der FlickreviewR 2-Bot die Lizenz cc-by-sa-2.0 damals bestätigt gehabt.
Somit hat also der Flickr-User TGr_79 im Nachhinein die Lizenz auf by-nd geändert. Wie wir jedoch wissen, kann die einmal gewährte CC-Lizenz gar nicht zurückgezogen werden. Da ich den Zuschnitt damals extra für eine Artikelbebilderung erstellt hatte, würde ich anregen, die Datei wiederherzustellen und mit der Vorlage Flickr-change-of-license zu versehen.

Sergio Sarra works deletedEdit

Dear Túrelio,

you marked all the pictures I uploaded of Sergio Sarra's works because of copyright violation. Anyway, I think there is a misunderstanding.

I mentioned as the source of the images the website of Archivio Studio Sarra where there are some of these photos. The website is copyrighted, but the "Archivio Studio Sarra" give me a slightly different copy of each image intended for free Creative Commons use by the owner himself. So the real source of the image is simply "Archivio Studio Sarra".

The images intended for free Creative Commons use by the owner himself are:

  • Sergio Sarra.jpg
  • File:Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, Sergio Sarra, Darnell Valentine.jpg
  • File:Sergio Sarra, two Ipnlogic 5, 2013.jpg

  • File:Sergio Sarra - Psychedelic garden.jpg
  • File:Sergio Sarra - EWHA Womans University.jpg
  • File:Sergio Sarra - Vetta del Monte.jpg

I would like to understand how to correct the source of images (from to Archivio Studio Sarra) and remove the copyright violation tagging for all the pictures mentioned above. Obviously, I can prove that the images I uploaded are the copies intended for free Creative Commons use by the owner himself, the "Archivio Studio Sarra".

Kind regards, Synenvi (talk) 11:57, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

in such cases, the uploader (you) needs to provide written evidence for the claimed free license. In your case it seems to be complicated by the fact that
1) a number of the image files were obviously (per its EXIF data) shot by different photographers, such as MARIO DI PAOLO, Ito Lim, Gino Di Paolo, Elisabetta Sarra, Attilio Di Daniele, etc.
2) in some of your uploads the author-name in the description (by you) is not identical to the one in the camera data. For example in File:Sergio Sarra - due Ipnologic.jpg it's "Franco Sarra" versus "Attilio Di Daniele".
3) a number of your uploads are photographies of works of art, such as drawings/paintings, which have a copyright by their own, usually hold by the artist/painter.
So, first you should ask the Archivio Studio Sarra whether they really have the full copyright/permission from all involved artists and photographers to release these images under a free license, which allows also commercial re-use (see COM:L). (Remember, mere ownership of a print or even of the original work of art does not equal having the copyright. Only the autor/artist can give his/her copyright away.) If that is the case, then you need to correct/complete the description of each of your uploads by clearly writing who is the (mere) photographer and who is the artist/painter/etc.
A template for a permission in Italian, you find here: Commons:Modello_richiesta_di_permesso#Pubblicazione_con_licenza_libera.
--Túrelio (talk) 09:24, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
Hi @Túrelio: and thank you for your reply,
today I spoke directly with the artist Sergio Sarra and his wife Elisabetta Sarra (they are Archivio Studio Sarra).
To avoid future problems with photographers and reports as yours, we decided by mutual agreement to remove all the photos except for File:Sergio Sarra.jpg. The photo was taken from Elisabetta Sarra and represents the artist Sergio Sarra walking. The photographer Elisabetta Sarra (and the artist Sergio Sarra) agree to publish the above-mentioned work under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International.
Elisabetta Sarra will send, via the 'official' e-mail address, the permission in the formula that you kindly linked to me and I upload the description and others info for the file File:Sergio Sarra.jpg.
Is this process enough to remove the tagging for the file above-mentioned or it needs something else? Also, can you tell me how can I proceed to delete all the other photos instantly?
Thank you, Synenvi (talk) 18:01, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

sure. However, in this case the uploader himself (Mentoss281) had requested the speedy-deletion of File:TonyBellew.png. As it's already some weeks ago, I don't exactly remember my rationale for choosing the duplicate-process; may be that the png still had uses.

Deletion of File:Wapt.jpgEdit

Hi Túrelio,

you have recently deleted the image File:Wapt.jpg because of copyright violation (Copyright violation: Simon Fonteneau (wikipedia username Skarpiste) is the author of the image and is the one that has done the upload. Is it ok for you if we re-upload the schema with better explanation of copyright source? Moreover, if Simon can re-upload, he would like to change the name something more specific, since WAPT is also an american TV station (something like "WAPT deployment software - workflow schema.jpg").


Cardondenis (talk) 09:47, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Cardondenis,
it might be better, if you ask Simon Fonteneau to send a confirmation of his authorship (and eventual relation to to (content of email is treated confidentially, will not be published). When he has sent it, you can drop me a notice, so that I can temporarily un-delete File:Wapt.jpg. While the permission is processed by our OTRS volunteers, the file can be renamed and the description be adapted. --Túrelio (talk) 11:18, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Will it be deleted?Edit

Hello. My two drawings File:Dibujo de John Rawls.jpg and File:Gustavo Bueno Alvaro Marques.jpg recently have been marked as derivative works, which they are, I admit, but, will they be deleted for copyright? There are some art works derivated on wikipedia as well, like Derrida Dibujo.jpg , Derrida-by-Pablo-Secca.jpg and Foucalt.png. But, even still, I hope they wont be erased. Thank you. --Alvaro Marques Hijazo (talk) 01:39, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Is there any possibility (by filling a form for instance) to prove his agreement with the licence?
Thanks for your answer. Davric (talk) 11:24, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Davric:, sure. He could authorize you to upload his photos, provided they are his own work. The easiest way would be if he would give you all the images, he wants to be uploaded, in one batch. Immediately after uploading them, you should prepare a statement of permission, using this template: Commons:Email_templates#Email_message_template_for_release_of_rights_to_a_file, in which you need to list the file-names of all these uploads and then either send it per email to him or, if he does not have email, you would need to print it out and send him the print. He then needs to date and sign the permission document and either send it per email directly to or send the print to you, you need to scan and send it to address mentioned above. --Túrelio (talk) 08:47, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

  Done, but the cat is still empty. --Túrelio (talk) 19:56, 12 March 2019 (UTC)


Why did you delete the category? It was neither acccidental, test, or any other sppedy criterion. It contained 69 files, that have been moved to wooferendum march 2019. That move makes sense, if the user wanted to add the sub-category for the october 2018 wooferendum, or the sub-cat for a future wooferendum. As far as I know there exists no content from the october wooferendum, and I don't expect that there will be another wooferendum, a as brexit is abput to happen in march 2019. It still might habe been possible to redirect wooferendum to wooferendum march 2019, but it is not ok to delete the cat as nonsense. --C.Suthorn (talk) 17:02, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

The cat had been tagged as SDG1 by User:B dash and this rationale is automatically taken over into the deletion-log, if there was no manual change by the deleting admin. In addition, when I deleted it, the cat was surely empty, which is in itself a valid deletion-rationale. However, as this is not a question of faith for me, I've now undeleted it. --Túrelio (talk) 19:56, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Picture removal due to copyright violationEdit

Hello there. I've noticed that a picture uploaded: file:Lineage 16.0 Screenshot.png on was deleted by you due to copyright violation. I'm quite confused since the picture was taken on my own phone and did not expect your deletion. I case that I need to prove it's my own work, how can I? I am looking forward to hear clarification from you.


— Preceding unsigned comment added by Linein3 (talk • contribs) 13:46, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi Linein3,
as already hinted at your talkpage the file File:Lineage 16.0 Screenshot.png has been deleted from Commons due to suspicion of being a copyvio. Though we do not doubt that you performed the screenshot by yourself, creating a screenshot does not automatically give you the copyright of what you made a reproduction of. The deleted image showed a typical smartphone screen-page, which is usually copyrighted. Though en:LineageOS is open-source, this is not necessarily valid for such "design" material, as it usually is not produced by the OS programers, but taken from other sources. So, you need to provide evidence that this screen-page/background image also falls under an open-source license. --Túrelio (talk) 13:59, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

This image has been deleted Without any evidence and has beennrightfully uploaded by the owner of the photo. The image is available on Instagram @dietim_ and is his own property.

Usage of the image has been requested by Tim van Teunenbroek @Dietim_ and hereby requested the undeleting of earlier mentioned image.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Luxurylifenl (talk • contribs)
Hi Luxurylifenl,
the claimed source[15] does not show any evidence of a free license. Merely publishing an image on a website does not mean that is is under a free license, as required for all uploads to Commons. In addition, there is no verifiable evidence that you, Luxurylifenl, are identical to the owner of the mentioned Instagram account.
So, even if you are, you need to send a statement from the said Instagram account address to in which you need to state 1) that you are either the original photographer of the uploaded image (or that you have obtained the full copyright from the photographer), 2) that you want to release the image under a free licence (see Commons:Licensing), which allows anybody to use this image, even commercially, provided the license terms are met. --Túrelio (talk) 14:20, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

「折居社・由来の説明看板.JPG」削除の件("Orii-sha(Orii-Shrine),explanation signboard of origin. JPG"matter of deletion)Edit

(Hereafter, the English translation by Google translation. Although we confirmed to some extent, please understand that misconversion may occur.)
For Túrelio.
I am angry for the deletion of "Orii-sha(Orii-Shrine),explanation signboard of origin. JPG(Japanese:折居社・由来の説明看板.JPG)" which you went this time. Did you not see the latest content that you ( BATACHAN) applied to OTRS?
I understand that the photos I have posted have been deleted twice in the past because of copyright infringement that was out of OTRS's policy, so for the latest application, a license based on OTRS's policy was used. You should get something formal from Ubagami-Shrine (by the current priest), send it by e-mail to OTRS, post it properly, and display the name of the copyright holder and post it.
Moreover, you have attempted to delete using a hand that can be said to be quite sloppy. You made the deletion without saying if you could not afford to give a rebuttal opinion in a necessary way.
Your theory is, "A file that has been deleted once is absolutely deleted even if it complies with the OTRS policy"? What do you think of the actions we have been striving to follow OTRS policy?
As a means that I can do for the time being, I offered "deletion deletion of the corresponding file" according to the policy, but please be ashamed of the act that can be said as "sin" that you have done.--BATACHAN (talk) 00:16, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Question regarding file deletion, re-uploading, and proper useEdit

Hello, I am acting as proxy for the artists and company whose pages I am updating and have been given permission to upload the covers. I have so far successfully re-uploaded one of the files through "Uploading a work that is not free content, under a fair use rationale (cover of a music album or single)" for Thousand-Faced Beast, but cannot link it to the Chinese Wikipedia. Please provide more explanation on how this can be done properly. Thank you.

Hi Longjiangmei,
Commons does not (and legally cannot) allow upload of fair-use material. This must be done locally, provided the local project has an exemption policy. Otherwise, the only way to upload such materials (album covers) is to obtain a valid permission from the rigths holder (usually the record company) and to forward it to . --Túrelio (talk) 11:10, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

However, after further investigation I found that the original source of Sirin Hamsho is not violating any copyrights, and is free to use. therefore, could you please undelete it.

As a side note, if in the future I wanted to upload more pictures and I reached out to their owners for approval. Do I need to submit the proof for their approval in order to protect the photos from deletion? (i.e should written approval needed from owners in order to keep their works/photos on Wikimedia?

Hi HanadiAslan,
first of all, you should not claim other people's work, even if used with their permission, as your own work; as you did with File:Sirin Hamsho.jpg.
Now, if you want to upload this image on Commons, first you do need to identify who is the creator/photographer. You then need to ask him for a permission, compliant with Commons' requirements, see COM:L. If the copyright-holder is willing to give you such a permission, you may prepare the proper permission-text by using the template at Commons:Email templates. You then need to send this to the copyright-holder and ask him to date/sign it and to send it back to . --Túrelio (talk) 14:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Xdequinze,

Being the "owner" of a photo can mean different things, especially if you didn't create it by yourself, which seems unlikely. In addition, uploads to Commons need to be free for everybody to use it, even commercially (not just for a Wikipedia article). So, if this image comes from the depicted person, you need to ask him for a permission under a free license (compliant to our license requirements), which then needs to be sent to . --Túrelio (talk) 17:06, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

we are talking about the (now deleted) image File:Soothsayer 1986.jpg, right?
If you have obtained the full rights from the photographer, you should send a statement of permission from your official band address to in which you should mention the filename, the name of the photographer and the free license, under which you want to release the image. --Túrelio (talk) 09:34, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

User repeatedly claiming copyright for images they do not ownEdit

Hi, apologies if this isn't the correct way to go about this but I'm new to Wikimedia. I run a website and was approached by someone called Al Rose who appears to run a site called TodayTesting. This person claimed that an image I had used on my website was owned by his website and that I was required to link to his site if I wished to use it. As proof he sent me a link to a Wikimedia Commons page in which he'd crudely uploaded the image here and attributed it to his own website with a fake date. The user who uploaded the image was this one (presumably Al Rose under a different name):

If you look through his history you can see he has done this on numerous occasions. They all fit the same pattern - taking an image off a website like Pixabay, uploading it to Wikimedia Commons with the correct attribution (to Pixabay, etc.) then later performing a minor edit in which he changes the attribution to TodayTesting. They all also seem to have fake dates - they were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons recently, but have dates listed much longer ago to make it appear that TodayTesting has always owned the copyright. The point in all this is obviously to try and trick website owners like myself into linking back to his website so he can move up Google rankings. He's doing this repeatedly and is still actively doing it as far as I can tell. Personally, I just ignored his request by email but it annoyed me to such an extent that I signed up here to report it.

I added some deletion requests to recent images he's uploaded, but clearly the user should be banned and I'd suggest anything linking to TodayTesting in future is likely not actually owned by this website. Again, apologies if you're not the correct person to send this to - I've reported this to you because I understand you previously dealt with this person in the past here:

La Gitane d'Henri MatisseEdit

Hello, it seems to me that the copyright of the file La Gitane d'Henri Matisse have not been violated to the extent that this work of art is published on virtually all encyclopedic content (books, website, and others) and that is the reason why i added this file in Commons and also it seems to me that already more than 70 years after the death of the author, thank you, good regards. Filo gèn' (d) 19:39, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Missing bistorical records on file deletionEdit

For "File:Ynw melly at Miami Florida in 2018 (cropped).jpg", it states your involvement on the deletion, and that "The deletion, protection, and move log for the page are provided below for reference." However, all links that follow are dead, and so there is no available record on why the image was deleted. Could you repair these, so there is a record of your actions? Cheers. 2601:246:C700:2DB2:51DB:35FF:55F8:37CF 13:15, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi IP,
File:Ynw melly at Miami Florida in 2018 (cropped).jpg was a simple crop of File:Ynw melly at Miami Florida in 2018.jpg. As the latter had been deleted due to being copyvio-suspected, as it had been taken from Youtube, the crop had the same problem. The deletion-summary for the crop "See File:Ynw melly at Miami Florida in 2018.jpg" is not really dead, but can be seen only by Admins. --Túrelio (talk) 19:16, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion requests/File:Kaunas Landmarks 20.jpgEdit

Have just received notification that this and other files recently posted have been tagged for deletion even although the photos are of works in public spaces and are not intended for commercial use.  Appreciate that I am not familiar with Lithuanian licensing laws, but clearly most visitors to Lithuania will not know how long ago a public artwork was created never mind have contact detail for the artist even if the artist is clearly identified.  Such prohibition appears out-dated for a country that wishes to encourage tourism and most western countries manage to achieve this without compromising the natural and legal rights of their artists.  Can the decisions to delete these files be reasonably appealed given that as a ‘foreigner’ I do not have access to background information relating to these specific works photographed and published via Wikimedia? Thank you for your consideration of this request to ‘undelete’ the files you have selected for deletion --SM1 (talk) 16:20, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Scotch Mist,
to be frank: as you aren't a newcomer to Wikimedia projects, I'm a bit astonished about your above presented "rationales". But, anyway:
1) at this moment there is nothing to "undelete", as nothing has been deleted yet.
2) as an "older" user, you should know per COM:L that Wikimedia projects require all material (text and images) to be free also for commercial use. This is nothing new and didn't change from the early beginnings.
3) when you visit a foreign country, you may not need to get acustomed to the local copyright laws, especially the freedom-of-panorama provisions, but when uploading your photos to Commons or Wikipedia, you need to check (and obey) these laws. A very short synopsis for Lithuania is here.
4) you may "appeal" or discuss the requested deletion of your images of outdoor works at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Kaunas Landmarks 20.jpg.
5) for your images of outdoor works, which have been tagged with a speedy-tag due to missing permission, you need to provide the evidence as requested on your talkpage.
--Túrelio (talk) 19:21, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Turelio

Thank you for your detailed response to my message left on your talk page.

With regard to point ‘1’, you may also be surprised to know that after posting thousands of images over many years I have only previously had two instances where the publishing of images have been questioned on copyright grounds, and there were very specific circumstances relating to those questions.  All of the images I have posted have been ‘free’ under CCA-4 (point ’2’) and have not been posted for my personal “commercial use” (point ‘3’).

More specifically regarding ‘evidence’ (point ‘5’) there already exist images of this outdoor work in category ‘Monuments and memorials in Kaunas’ (one posted over six years ago), seemingly without artist attributed copyright, so it would not appear unreasonable to presume (given that there was no information at the photograph site to suggest otherwise and naturally as a visitor to Lithuania I am not familiar with the history of the work) that further images could not be posted.  This same rationale applies to File:Kaunas Landmarks 18.jpg, as well as (see category ‘Sculptures in Kaunas’) to File:Kaunas Landmarks 15.jpg and File:Kaunas Landmarks 14.jpg, as well as (see category ‘Vilnius University Library’) to File:Vilnius University 06.jpg and File:Vilnius University 07.jpg (File:Vilnius University 22.jpg would appear to be an ancient memorial relief the creator of which is probably long deceased), as well as (see category ‘Adam Mickiewicz Monument in Vilnius’) to File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 08.jpg, File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 09.jpg and File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 13.jpg, as well as (see category ‘Interior of Church of the Assumption of The Holy Virgin Mary, Kaunas’) to File:Kaunas Landmarks 25.jpg.  (With regard to File:Kaunas Landmarks 26.jpg and File:Kaunas Landmarks 27.jpg I am not sure if the creator of these public\church stained glass works, Vytautas Švarlis, is still living but so far I have not yet managed to discover an email address for him, is this something with which you can help?)

File:Kaunas Landmarks 32.jpg and File:Trakai Island 31.jpg provide information for visitors so it would not appear rational to classify these as ‘artworks’ with access restricted by copyright when not only does there not seem to be any likely-hood of third-party commercial advantage here but the purpose of their creation was presumably to publicize the information which they contain. File:Kaunas Landmarks 35.jpg, File:Vilnius Landmarks 34.jpg, File:Ventspils 02.jpg perhaps more generally fall under the same bracket but should concerns remain about the use of these images on Wikimedia then any assistance with identifying\contacting the creators of these public artworks would be appreciated.  

It is interesting to note that when we visited the ‘Adam Mickiewicz Museum in Vilnius’ my family and I were the only visitors to this museum and the only three images on Wikimedia were external (by the way including the entrance profile ‘File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 16.jpg’ in one of those images which has not been tagged for deletion) were of the external property with no images of what was actually contained in the museum – it is perhaps therefore not surprising that there appear to be few people visiting a museum that should be of interest to many tourists.  The museum paintings you have also tagged for deletion in this category (File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 18.jpg and File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 20.jpg) I believe to be old paintings and the artists already deceased, as with the sculptor Ryszard Jan Kozlowski whose work (File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 22.jpg ) was created in 1933. (Note, the sculpture itself appears to be a 'reproduction' of sculpture\painting created around a century earlier, during the life of Mickiewicz, indicating that as a 'derivative work' it should be governed by the copyright of the original artist(s) and licensed here under [PD-old-100]).

It would be a great pity if those interested in the wonderfully diverse artwork of Lithuania were denied the opportunity to gain appreciation of this due to seeing little evidence of this among images posted on Wikimedia. In fact by strictly limiting visibility of their work on Wikimedia, the ‘artists’ themselves, never-mind Lithuania as a whole, may lose out on future commissions perhaps spawned through growing international interest in their work as well as in the country of Lithuania itself.

Please sympathetically review your decision to tag all of the above referenced files and ‘un-tag’ them so that others can begin to appreciate more of the great artwork throughout Lithuania of which the country should be proud!  Thank you … --SM1 (talk) 10:10, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

@Túrelio: Further to comments above, more specifically, File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 18.jpg is a painting (original circa 1828) of the work of Walenty Wankowicz (1799-1842) and therefore the 'delete tag' should be removed and probably replaced with the [PD-old-100] or [PD-Art] tag. This same rationale applies to File:Adam Mickiewicz Vilnius 20.jpg, a contemporary painting (circa 1827) as evidenced with the work by 19th Century lithographer, Ducarme. Given the limited time available to provide evidence regarding the other images you have tagged, it would be appreciated if these deletion tags could either be removed or compliance period extended while I find the time to address other specific questions that you have raised. Thank you ... --SM1 (talk) 08:18, 29 April 2019 (UTC) @Túrelio: Have not received any response to my message of 29 April and the deletion tags remain on all of the images you tagged even though some of these are clearly permitted under a PD License tag - will you resolve this or advise what action I now need to take to avoid these images being deleted? Thank you ... --SM1 (talk) 09:32, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi - I just uploaded File:Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election Page NoImages.pdf but had redeacted potential copyrighted images on p. 42, 94 and 99. I renumbered pages to 42-1, 94-1 and 99-1 and deleted the original pages with the images. I just now looked at the file and the original images are there. Is there a way we can remove just those pages and substitute them with pages that have the redacted images? Atsme Talk 📧 18:28, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Atsme,
if you have really removed the specified pages from the pdf file and uploaded the correct file, then this might simply be a cache problem, as this document has been uploaded a number of times on recent days. --Túrelio (talk) 18:33, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Good - just as it should be. I guess the p.#s on the document vs the p.#s for the upload are different. The .pdf upload must count the actual # of pages uploaded, so it eliminated my #sequence.

Please undelete your deletion of the Kent Tate imageEdit

Hello Turelio, I am trying to figure out how to request that the image I posted for Kent Tate be undeleted. Am new to Wikimedia Commons and don't understand your reason for deleting the Kent Tate image that I posted.Tate1956 (talk) 23:45, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Tate1956,
this b/w photo had been uploaded by User:Cheri Brown and been deleted under copyvio-suspicion already twice in 2017. The reason for the deletion of your upload (same size as the second upload by Cheri Brown) had been communicated to you in the notification about the deletion on your talkpage. It's again the suspicion of being a copyvio, as it has been found prepublished at, while you claimed it to be from April 2019.
Now, if you are really the depicted Kent Tate and if you really have obtained enough rights from the photographer (who?) to release this image under a free license, which also allows its commercial re-use, then you need to send a confirmation about these facts from your official/business email address to . --Túrelio (talk) 08:09, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Please undelete this picture. I have owned the painting in the picture for many years. I purchased it at the AE Backus Museum in Ft. Pierce Florida, USA. I took the picture of my painting and released it into the public domain.

Mr. Backus, the author(painter)of this work died almost 29 years ago. He did not register his paintings for copyright. He sold them. He painted this painting 43 years ago. How can you suspect a copyright violation? --LarryStevens (talk) 04:36, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi LarryStevens,
to answer your last question first: because mere ownership of a work of art does include the copyright; see Commons:Copyright_rules_by_subject_matter#2D_art_(paintings_etc.). In most countries of the world, copyright last at leat until 70 years after the death of the artist; so, 29 years is nothing. However, due to the extreme inconsistency of US copyright law (see File:PD-US table.svg), I'll undelete the file and put into into a regular deletion-request, which allows a discussion and input by other users. --Túrelio (talk) 08:03, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Undeletion of File:Michelle Obama and Karen Dudley.jpgEdit

Hi Túrelio

I took this photo on my own camera back in June 2011. Any other versions of it online have been copied from my online posting. There is no reason for the deletion of my picture as I own all of the copyright. My initial post

According to Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, any image posted with the Public setting carries the implicit acknowledgment that said photo is available for access and use by anyone -- including entities not on Facebook.[1]

I am not 100% sure if what I have provided is enough evidence to show that the photo belongs to me. Please let me know if there is any more specific evidence needed.

To you of the prisonerEdit

(All texts written here mainly use English translated sentences by Google translation. Therefore, there is also the possibility of mistranslation.)
You are forced not to confirm any of the contents of the permission application for images posted under the OTRS policy, with the official permission from the owner / administrator of the explanatory signboard captured in the image. In response to one's remarks that pointed out that I went for deletion, I have not made any remarks even now?
What do you think of the situation that you spent so much and finally spent getting permission? In addition, it is no longer possible to say only "outrage" about having performed this deletion without performing any confirmation work before deletion.
As far as this is said, if you intend to make no remorse or excuse after this, you will be called: "Deaf!"--BATACHAN (talk) 01:47, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Copyright violationsEdit

Thanks for your message. I just wanted to know if there is a possibility to change the format of the posters into the official ones (not the UK version). Thats the reason why I uploaded the other ones, but I dont want to claim it as my own work. If theres now way, its ok, but it drives me crazy.^^ XRaito (talk) 19:14, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

The only (legal) way would be to contact the movie company, which holds the rights, for a permission (free license). But it's a bit unlikely they will give one. --Túrelio (talk) 19:14, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Photos from FacebookEdit

Hi you have deleted all photos. One two photos may violet copy right. But most of the photos are collected from social media clicked by friends. I don't know why can't i upload fb's photos . PerfectingNEI (talk) 08:59, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi PerfectingNEI,
material on Facebook is per se not free enough. More important, as there is little to no upload-control on Facebook, you can never be sure that the poster on Facebook has indeed the rights over the posted material. The same is true for most "social media"; even Flickr is abused for license-laundering. So, if you upload material, which hadn't been created by yourself, you need to provide (-> Commons:OTRS) a credible statement from the original author. --Túrelio (talk) 09:20, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi Túrelio, feel free to close the DR. As per above, it seems as if all uploads must be deleted. Thanks --Discasto talk 10:10, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Deleting Norwich Pictures on Norwich City F.CEdit

Hi there,

I can understand why you deleted some of the pictures I put up on the Norwich City F.C. page - however, the two of the 2019 championship trophy lift were personal images and i didn't think this would breach copyright?



— Preceding unsigned comment added by Tomhingston (talk • contribs) 09:03, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi Tom,
well, I did tag them as copyvios, but they were deleted by my colleague Ymblanter. Anyway, I tagged them as they were published on Instagram (links on your talkpage). What do you mean by "personal images"? --Túrelio (talk) 09:07, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Deleting photo of Ján BartkoEdit

Dear Túrelio,

today you deleted my photo of PhDr. Ján Bartko due to you thought, that there was a problem with copyright. But it wasn't copyright violation. My real name is Peter Haľko and my DSLR writes it into exif file of every captured photo. The problem is that there on Wikimedia I use nickname. How can I prove my authorship? Thanks for quick answer.

Yours sincerely --Petinoh (talk) 11:46, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Peter,
so, I tried to protect your copyright, but did delete your work. :-)
Ok, the process should be like this: 1) I will undelete the image, but put an OTRS-pending tag on it. 2) You send an email from your "official" email address to (=OTRS), just explaining/writing again what you wrote me above (don't forget to mention the filename). 3) An OTRS-volunteer will process your mail (Your email is treated confidentially) and put an OTRS-ticket on your image and that's it. 4) As your File:Peter Kocak.jpg has also been tagged for "no permission" by a colleague, you might add a statement regarding that image also. 5) As you are not obliged to publicly disclose your username/realname association, I can delete our discussion here as soon as you've sent your email. --Túrelio (talk) 12:59, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the guideline! I've just sent the e-mail.--Petinoh (talk) 17:18, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio,
könntest Du bitte mal überprüfen, ob der User: sinnvolle Arbeit hier abliefert.
Sikkims Nationalblume und Indiens Nationaltier sind wohl nicht korrekt.
Grüße. Orchi (talk) 15:41, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
P.S. Indiens Nationalreptil ist wohl o.k.

Da scheint es auch intern Widersprüche zu geben. Category:National flower of Sikkim wird auf Category:Cattleya maxima weitergeleitet, während enwiki behauptet, dass die offizielle Blume Sikkims die Cymbidium goeringii ist. De728631 (talk) 16:11, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for die späte Antwort. Die IP wurde inzwischen von Taivo für 1 Woche gesperrt.[19] Die IP hat eine Reihe von Flamingo-Fotos in die Category:Junagadh State Bird gesteckt, was natürlich nicht sinnvoll ist. Wenn das denn überhaupt zutrifft, was zumindest aus dem Artikel auf :en leider nicht hervorgeht, würde die Flamingo-Kategorie in diese Kategorie gehören, nicht aber einzelne Fotos. Zudem hat diese IP analoge Kategorien wie z.B. Category:National Flower of Pakistan oder Category:National Sweet of Pakistan ‎angelegt und befüllt. Da die angelegten Kategorien aber auf keinen Artikel verlinken, ist es nicht gerade einfach herauszufinden, ob das denn überhaupt stimmt. Die formalen Kategorisierungsfehler sind dagegen noch harmlos. --Túrelio (talk) 20:36, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Klaus Littmann, Klagenfurt, Kärnten, "for forest" Kunstprojekt im Wörthersee StadionEdit

Hi Túrelio,

.. mein Foto wurde am Rathausplatz in Klagenfurt, wo das Plakat über dem Eingang angebracht ist, aufgenommen. Dieses Kunstprojekt ist in Kärnten in aller Munde und wird beworben. Ich bin davon ausgegangen, dass dieses Plakat sich im öffentlichen Raum befindet. Sollte es Bedenken geben, bitte löschen, da es ohnedies mit dem heute von mir uploaded Foto Maibaum 2019 in Klagenfurt vor dem Rathaus veröffentlicht ist. Die Entscheidung überlasse ich dir.

File:Manual para mujeres detectives M.B. Franz.jpgEdit


This image has been uploaded by two different users, probably the same person under two names, uploading under the same file name with the same exact info and numerous categories. I asked to delete it both times for Copyvio and you did it. I suspect that there could be further attemps to reload it in the future. Is there a way to prevent that?

Pierre cb (talk) 16:32, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

as far as I know, there is no automatic way to prevent this. Of course, I could protect the filename against recreating it. But that would only lead them to use a different filename. Now I put the (deleted) filename on my watch-list, so that I get notified when it is recreated. --Túrelio (talk) 18:22, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Good idea. Thanks. Pierre cb (talk) 18:35, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Please undelete File:Roger Chung CUHK.jpgEdit

My boss who is Roger Chung gave me the permission to upload this file for him and I am going to as well create a English wiki page using the exact same file. Please undelete the image so I can do my job.....

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Clhy (talk • contribs) 09:32, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi, that's all well and nice, but ...
1) Mr. Chung surely didn't shoot this image by himself.
2) Per your above statement you also aren't the photographer.
3) The latter clearly contradicts your statement in the image-description, where you claimed to be the author.
4) In case the image belongs to sphpc.cuhk, they claim "© All Rights Reserved. The Chinese University of Hong Kong. 2017"
5) In case you didn't know: the copyright of a photography belongs to the photographer. Of course, the photographer can sell/transfer copyright to another person, which usually requires some documentation. So, if Mr. Chung is sure he has obtained enough rights from the photographer to release this image under a free license (COM:L), which permits anybody to use it even commercially, then he needs to send a written confirmation from his official email-address to which should include the name of the photographer and an information how the photographer wants to be credited. --Túrelio (talk) 10:38, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

As a reply to what you comment on the copyright. What you said is simply exploiting the meaning of copyright.

Although the photographer may not be Roger Chung himself, which is impossible to take such a photo, it is Roger Chung himself with his face in the photo. It makes no sense that you relate this to violation of copyright of SPHPC CUHK. And what you are implying is a photographer is free to release any of the photos he took even it's a profile/private shooting. This is a violation of privacy instead of copyright.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Clhy (talk • contribs) 04:48, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
As you are obviously not willing to obtain a permission, this discussion makes no sense. Feel free to request undeletion at Commons:Undeletion requests. EOD. --Túrelio (talk) 06:06, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

File:تاريخ قديم جدا.jpgEdit

Hi Túrelio, could you please reconsider your deletion of this file? I declined the request because the purported source image is quite different from the upload. For example: even ignoring colouration, the horizontal crack at the bottom is quite flat on the Commons version, but slanting up to the left on the "source" (i.e., they are taken from different angles). After my decline, the proposer simply re-added the bogus link, which is out of process. This should, at least, have a normal DR. Эlcobbola talk 16:28, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

CSD G6 (uncontroversial maintenance): Making way for moveEdit


It is seemingly an invisible move – such that the target link remains red. Is this new feature documented?

Kidding aside, this is not the first (and AFAIR not second) case when your nick pops in logs, alongside with CAPTAIN RAJU, over some controversial actions. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:16, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

I don't fully understand the problem. The 1st deleted file was a redir to File:Opinion Polling of Spain General Election 1996.png, the 2nd one to File:Opinion Polling of Spain General Election 2000.png. Both are blue/visible. Before deleting redirects I do always check whether the to-be-deleted filename is in use and, if it is, I either do not delete or replace the old by the new filename on the respective project. --Túrelio (talk) 19:31, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
