Evaluation of a photoEdit

Hi, Knowing your experience with this matter, may I ask your opinion about the photo which is the object of a disagreement in this WP article? I thought of removing it from the article, but I don't want to cause a conflict of edition with the user. Should I go so far as to nominate it for deletion or should I just leave it? It's the only photo of the subject on Commons, but still, I can't see a use for it unless one wants to make the person look bad. -- Asclepias (talk) 14:39, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

The image is technically better than many of this user's celebrity images, but the mid-change expression really *isn't* flattering, and possibly not representative of what this person looks like.
However, Commons policy is that images usually aren't deleted if they're already in use- and this image is currently in use at fr.wikipedia.
@Asclepias: I'd recommend that you raise the issue via the appropriate channels at fr.wikipedia (fr:Wikipédia:Appel à commentaires?) and ask for some unbiased feedback there. *If* the feedback is clearly negative, I would remove it from use again (citing the consensus) *then* nominate it for deletion here at Commons. In both cases, people will have their chance to express their opinion.
(As someone who isn't a major contributor to fr.wikipedia- my French is quite limited- it wouldn't really be appropriate for me to get involved in a discussion there.)

Copyright questionEdit

Hi... Noticed that you have been involved with photo deletion discussions and thought I'd see if you could help me understand the topic:

Several months ago I uploaded many photos I took at Grounds For Sculpture to Commons and then used them on the GFS Wiki page, as well as on a few other Wiki pages about some of the specific sculptures. A month or so later they were all tagged for deletion due to copyright violation. Despite my protest they were all deleted from Commons and the individual pages. (I was only able to save my peacock photos by explaining that these were real birds.) As best I can understand it, the deleter was claiming the law (in the USA at least) is that photos of sculptures are not the property of the photographer - but all rites belong to the sculptor. I was pointed at some legalistic Wiki pages backing this up, and did some other research, but I did not understand all the details and basically gave up.

My biggest question is... why were MY photos deleted while other photos of the exact same sculptures are still on Commons? I'd love to understand this point so I could re-upload my photos for use on Wikipedia. Thanks! Rp2006 (talk) 15:27, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

BTW, here is the deletion list. Rp2006 (talk) 15:33, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
@Rp2006:; Unfortunately, this isn't something I'm willing to get involved with. The last time I tried to help out with a similar case- specifically, the legality of photographing 3D artworks in public places- I ended up being drawn out of my depth into a discussion that proved to be longwinded but completely unproductive. You'd be better discussing this with the people who contributed at the deletion debate, i.e. @Storkk: and @EugeneZelenko:.
All I can tell you is what Commons' interpretation of Freedom of Panorama in the US says, i.e. even photos of 3D works of art in public places remain copyrighted in the United States.
(BTW, I suspect- to be pedantic- that the issue *isn't* that you don't own any copyright in your own photo, but rather that creator's original copyright remains in place even in photographic reproductions. You could probably obscure the copyrighted object and do what you want with the rest of the photo, but that would be pointless).
Sorry, but I don't have anything more to say on this beyond that; hope you'll understand. Ubcule (talk) 16:10, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Rp2006 (talk) 16:44, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
