File:Avaya-10G-ERS-8600.JPG - This file was originally posted by PassportDude on the English wikipedia in 2007, if copies exist on the Internet they are probably copies of the image that was posted to the English wikipedia in 2007. This image was only recently moved from the English wikipedia to the wikimediacommons. Please provide a better explanation of Speedy Deletion, files get copied from wikipedia and wikimedia and used by others all over the internet, when they originate on the wiki, so stating that 4 years after it was originally posted that it was taken from the Internet is false, the internet took it from wikipedia.

- Hi, Geek2003. I don't doubt this file was created by an user of Wikipedia, but notice that it was created using photos that I believe that were taken from the internet, and that is why I marked it as copyvio. Some examples of possible sources:   (they are identical and have higher resolution, so they're not copies from Wikipedia). Maybe the best thing to do is revert the file to this version, without the copyrighted photos. Regards. ThiagoRuiz (talk) 05:21, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
ThiagoRuiz, Please look at the labels on each image these are clearly not the same images. The ones that you have identified have Stickers on them with what appears to be Intel or 3Com on them but the stickers that are on the other they are not even close to the same.
