Christmas ink smear stampEdit

File:Christmas ink smear stamp.jpg If you look carefully, you will see that the image of this stamp is not an exact copy of the original stamp. It has a big ink smear on the top of the stamp image which makes it completely new object and therefore does not violate the Canadian stamp copyright. The image concentrates on an error on the stamp, not the stamp itself. The image of the ink smear is the primary object of this image not the stamp which only servers as a media on which the smear is depicted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stanianb (talk • contribs) 12:42, 23 August 2021 (UTC) Stanianb (talk) 12:32, 25 August 2021 (UTC)

Stanianb: I never said this image is an exact copy of the original stamp, so please don't be trying to weasel your way around this by your claims. It IS a copyright Canadian stamp that has an ink smear at the top, so it is still a copyright Canadian stamp and not some completely new file designed by you. You are not the author of the stamp, so if, as you suggest, the only purpose is to show the ink smear and that is what is important to you, then just crop the ink smear and upload that. Please sign your talk page posts by adding three tildes, like this ~~~~, at the end of your post. Ww2censor (talk) 15:50, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Yes, the only purpose is to show the ink smear. I can crop it like you said but I still need to reference it to the original stamp so it would be clear to viewers where the smear locates and on which stamp.
How can I do that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stanianb (talk • contribs) 18:33, 23 August 2021 (UTC) Stanianb (talk) 12:32, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
Stanianb: Basically you can't, unless you show the whole stamp or a significant part of it, and that part is still in copyright. You should find a stamp that is in the public domain in order to illustrate the point. Please sign your talk page posts by adding four tildes, like this ~~~~, at the end of your post. Ww2censor (talk) 22:08, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Nationalpost - major Canadian news agency, show images of late Canada stamps with crossing out the denomination. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/o-christmas-stamp-from-santa-to-a-huron-madonna-the-story-of-the-christmas-stamp-is-a-story-of-canada
I think they know what they are doing. I can do the same on my stamp. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stanianb (talk • contribs) 01:00, 24 August 2021 (UTC) Stanianb (talk) 12:32, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
Stanianb: No you can't, the image is still in copyright and the wikimedia commons ONLY accepts fully freely licensed images. The Nationalpost do know what they are doing: they are using the image under a fair use criteria for journalistic purposes. I've given you two options: find a different image or crop away the stamp. I've been dealing with stamp copyright for more than 12 years here so know what I am talking about and as you are new here please just accept the advise given to help you. Please just add 4 tildes at the end of your posts as your signature. The SignBot has also posted a warning about this on your talk page. Ww2censor (talk) 10:25, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
Here's the link to Wiki page: w:Postage stamps and postal history of Canada
If you scroll down to the last image you will see the image a 2003 Canadian stamp featuring Queen Elizabeth with denomination crossed. What can you say about that?
Here's another example: w:Queen Elizabeth II domestic rate stamp (Canada)
Maybe I'm new here but I know how to do my homework. Maybe you should do too Stanianb (talk) 10:57, 24 August 2021 (UTC) Stanianb (talk) 12:32, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
Stanianb: No rudeness thank you, but actually you did not do your home work fully. Did you bother to look at the actual file page? If so you would see that yes you found instances of Canadian stamps in wikipedia articles but hey are not freely licensed as commons requires. They have been uploaded to the enwiki under a very strict non-free policy that allow some stamps to be used ONLY in articles about the stamps themselves and not other articles. They cannot be uploaded to the English language wikipedia without complying with all 10 policy guidelines. See w:WP:NFCC. Please try to find a freely licensed example that shows something similar. This cannot be the only stamp in the world with this error. Ww2censor (talk) 11:14, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
Let's talk about rudeness first. You said that I try "to weasel my way around".
Merriam-webster website (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/weasel%20into) give
"Definition of weasel into: to get into (a place or situation) by being dishonest, by persuading someone in a clever way, etc."
So, basicall, you call me dishonest.
I'm not an expert on copyright rules, but you claim that you are with 12 years of experience. So, who gave you the right to say that I try to "weasel" my ways?
I'm waiting for the appologie from you. Stanianb (talk) 12:32, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
Stanianb (talk) 12:05, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
Stanianb: Trying to find any excuse to try wriggle any possible reason to use this image and keep it is, to me, to weasel your way around the issue. I've provided you advise and suggestions on this matter. You could of course write an article about the specific stamp but you would have to support it well with significant coverage by reliable sources in order to show its notability. Then you could probably use the image under the enwiki's strict non-free policy. If you are offended by my choice of word, I'm sorry but that's my opinion and just to be clear, I never said you were dishonest. What about this image? Ww2censor (talk) 14:26, 24 August 2021 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Don't you understand, this is the one of the most amazing errors that exist in the World along with "Inverted Jenny". Look at the stamp yourself, The ink smear has perferct shape and locates right in the middle of the top of the stamp. The stamp shows birth of Christ and the smear appeares right above it like some kind of divine presence. At first glance, it migh seem it's part of the design. It's not just some ugly stain or missing color or wrong perforation. It has meaning. I want it on Wiki because I believe people should know about this curious error and not just several philatelists. Regarding copyrights, I can see on Wiki many modern stamps, - it means they can be there. If it was copyright protected they won't be there. How they have to be uploaded, it's just technicalities which I'm as new user don't know yet. All I know if other modern Canadian Christmas stamps can be uploaded on Wikw, why mine can't. And please, stop using word weasel. Weasel means that I try dishonestly do something. I'm 52 years old, I'm Canadian citizen, I hold bachelor degree of Computer Eng. I work as a teacher. This "weasel" offends me. Please show some respect. You supposed to act professionaly. Stanianb (talk) 10:11, 25 August 2021 (UTC)

Stanianb: I understand entirely this may well be a spectacular stamp error but the stamp is copyright and cannot be kept on the commons. Again you are wrong to say that such images you see onwiki are not copyright protected. Those other stamps are there because they are either in the public domain (on the commons), released under a free licence or comply with the strict non-free policy (on the enwiki) as I have already explained in detail. If you want to make some sort of case to keep this image you must make it at the deletion nomination page and not here because the closing admin will not be looking here for any possible reason to keep the image. I will not reply to any more of your posts because you are going around in circles and have plenty advise on how to deal with this issue. Ww2censor (talk) 10:27, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
