Deletion Request for this file didn't name the photographer(only mentioned death date of 1958). Can you check to see who the photographer was? (trying to determine if done by an American photographer or an European one) Abzeronow (talk) 16:39, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Nevermind, I found out on my own after some very frustrating web searching. John H. Flood. Probably was unpublished so I'll put Undelete in 2029 on the DR. Abzeronow (talk) 15:29, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

URAA images restored todayEdit

Yann, I don't like the URAA any more than you do, but at the moment it is the law in the United States and our clear policy is that images must be free of copyright in the source country and in the United States. Our policy as set forth at Commons:URAA-restored copyrights is clear -- if the URAA applies to an image, we must delete it.

"If the end result of copyright evaluation is that there is significant doubt about the freedom of a file under US or local law, the file must be deleted in line with the precautionary principle."

Unless and until we change either the law or our policy, it seems to me that as our most senior Admin you have a duty to follow policy and not restore images that are clearly under copyright in the USA.

I have no desire to start battling with you, but if you don't change your ways on this, I will have no choice. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:04, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Well, nothing is really clear about URAA. No one can really be sure that a file is still under copyright because of URAA: there are various probabilities depending on each case. We have been undeleting or keeping these files for the last 5 years, and although there is no consensus, I think there is a majority of people for keeping them. And AFAICT, the majority is growing. You were not active for some time, so you need to get informed the current situation.
We already have exceptions for various cases (PD-Art, FoP, etc.), so having an exception for URAA wouldn't be so new. Basically, we should keep files which are in the public domain world wide, except USA (and Mexico). Regards, Yann (talk) 23:26, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
First, I don't see how you can say that nothing is really clear about URAA -- the law is clear that in almost all cases if a work was under copyright in its source country on the URAA date, then it will be under copyright in the USA as if it had been under copyright here from its creation. The USA has a long copyright, but so does Mexico and other countries.
Second, fine, I don't object to our changing Commons policy. If there is a majority that believes we should ignore URAA, then we should change policy (this assumes that WMF legal will agree that we can igore USA law). However, I do object to some of our members, including you, ignoring policy and doing what they think is best. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 08:54, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
The issue is that we often do not know when the copyright expired, so we can't be sure if URAA applies or not. Then the image may have been published in USA at the time. Typical cases are pictures of Gandhi from the 1930s: we don't know when they were first published, and we don't know either if they were published in USA or not, but Gandhi was already a world famous personality, so it is quite probable. That's why I advocate an exception.
WMF Legal opinion on the matter is that the community should decide. IMO this is similar than pictures of recent sculptures and works of art allowed because of FoP. If we would apply the law strictly, we could not have these on Commons, as FoP in USA doesn't allow them. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:54, 10 March 2019 (UTC)


Block me, then! The files I uploaded were from Instagram, how do you suppose I put a link on for that? Forgive me if I just want an (ex) actor's page to have his bloody photo. StrangestWitch (talk) 14:40, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

@StrangestWitch: You are not allowed to copy images from external sources without the formal written permission of the copyright holder. You will be blocked if you do it again. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:42, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

It was a damn screenshot! I took it from a wallpaper story highlights, made for OTHERS and I said that it wasn't my own creation. This site is all so terribly high handed, no one cares if you have the same photo as them. There are thousands of the same photo circulating on different sites, how am I supposed to know where it's from originally! StrangestWitch (talk) 16:57, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

@StrangestWitch: Other websites may not care about copyright, but we do. Usually these could be acceptable elsewhere under a fair use rationale, but fair use is not accepted on Commons. Please read en:fair use and COM:DW. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:06, 10 March 2019 (UTC)


Hi Yann, The consensus over at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Sexy librarian look (15022862928).jpg was to keep the image, If you object to the keeping of this image then you should re-dr the image,
The OP's rationale was refuted by 3-4 editors so as such this should not have been deleted,
Many thanks, –Davey2010Talk 19:10, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

The scope is a debatable issue, but this image used with this title is a privacy violation at least. Regards, Yann (talk) 23:29, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
I don't care, The consensus at those DRs was to keep so again please restore all of the images you have deleted (IE File:Chad would make a great sexy librarian.jpg, File:Sexy librarian look (15022862928).jpg, File:The Sexy Librarian Look (3902980364).jpg and File:Sexy librarian (481593155).jpg), If you don't I'll take this matter to AN/U,
Like I said you're more than welcome to re-dr the file but at present you have abused your admin tools by deleting files that had consensus for keeping,
It's no different to File:London Eye - 01.jpg being sent to DR > Admin deletes even tho everyone said keep - You just wouldnt delete it would you ?.... same applies here,
Again you can either restore the files and send them back to DR or I can take you to AN/U and we can discuss it there, Your choice. –Davey2010Talk 15:43, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
I just closed pending DRs, and there is no consensus to keep any of them. You are welcome to ask for undeletion. And do not make threats. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:02, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes you did however you need to weigh the consensus too which you clearly haven't done - You've simply took a distaste to them and deleted them,
this DR had overwhelming consensus to keep whereas the other 3 had one Keep - You as a DR closer should have relisted the other 3 (and then closed this one as Keep),
If you genuinely believe these are deletable then restore the files and resend them back to DR - I'm sorry but there absolutely no consensus to delete these files so again kindly undelete them and send them back to DR - The images have now got attention at the CFD so as such more people can weigh in and if they're deleted again the fine I will be happy with that but at present you have deleted 4 images ignoring everyones comments at those DRS and I firmly believe these was no consensus to delete those 4 images,
If you genuinely believe your actions are correct then as I say undelete them and send them back to DR and everyone can have their say,
Thanks, Regards, –Davey2010Talk 17:24, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
I count 3 for keeping, and 2 (including mine) for deleting. I don't see any consensus. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:30, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
I'm talking about the DRs not the CFD ?, The DR listed above had 2 !keeps and 1 !delete (nominator) .... Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 17:37, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi! Please send a warning to user:Tambo. He is always changing for a worse version this file. Thank you. --Regasterios (talk) 20:14, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Copyright violation dispute.Edit

You have deleted a file and sent a delete request to another that I've uploaded under the ruling of copyright. However, I believe the request and the deletion were made in error as neither violated any copyright nor needs any fair use protections.

For the 7 Grand Dad image, the screenshot in question is from a game with no copyright to begin with and is thus a free screenshot. 7 GRAND DAD is a pirate game so it would be illegal to copyright it and the J.Y. Company no longer exists technically making the game vaporware.

As for the Animation Magic logo, it is simply a colored font and does not meet the threshold of originality, hence the PD-textlogo tag I used. Also, your nomination reasoning is just the tag with a question mark. That is inadequate reasoning for why something should be deleted. If you do not know the reasoning for the tag, just ask. User talk pages are available for a reason.

I look forward to your response and hope we can come to a settlement soon and without any bad faith.

Thank you for your time. AwesumIndustrys (talk) 02:51, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

@AwesumIndustrys: Hi,
Yes, I am not sure about the Magic logo, that's why I didn't delete it right away. You can add your comment in the deletion request.
For the 7 Grand Dad image, I am afraid, it doesn't work that way. There is probably still a copyright because it is a recent creation, and it is probably a derivative work of the Mario character. You can still ask more opinions on COM:VPC, and ask for undeletion on COM:UDR. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:36, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Can you help with something real quick?Edit

Hi again. I'm coaching a new editor, User:Devlet Geray, and we are trying to remove a photo mistakenly believed to be acceptable for commons (it wasn't). He overwrote the file with a completely different photo that is acceptable on Commons because he wanted to make sure the copyrighted image didn't get used anywhere else...but he didn't know about the issues with overwriting files. I've already explained all the issues with overwriting files with him on VK, and I hope you are forgiving and lenient since there was no bad faith and he tried to fix it when it happened. Can you just delete the old version of File:2019 March in Moscow about internet.jpg ( and the redirect ( I told him to just put a speedy delete tag on the page, but that was before he told me he overwrote it, and we only want the first photo to be deleted. Thank you for taking care of this, --PlanespotterA320 (talk) 14:35, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Deletion requestsEdit

Hi there. Regarding this; before I uploaded any images, I was advised to look through the licensing for various video game logos, which I did, seeing that by far the most common tag was PD-text. So I uploaded the files with this tag. Now, if that's incorrect, so be it, but I'm a little confused how The Settlers Online logo, for example, meets the threshold of originality, but images like this, this, this, and this do not. Thanks. Bertaut (talk) 19:16, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

@Bertaut: I am not certain, but I think these logos are too complex, and therefore have a copyright. You can add your comment(s) in the deletion request. Then another admin will decide. Regards, Yann (talk) 23:39, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
Okay, will do. Cheers. Bertaut (talk) 01:30, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - development update, March 2019Edit

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

About "Camino Caicumeo.png" and "Camino Real (Chile).png"Edit

Hi Yann, I received your messages about problems with my pictures "Camino Caicumeo.png" and "Camino Real (Chile).png", but I didn't get a clear idea about the problem with these images. You commented both files as "derivative works" because I stated in the description that the drawings are based in old maps from articles and books, and that I should include copyright information about those original sources. On the contrary, I said that those maps are "own work", because both maps were manually drawed (maybe with imperfections) in Maphub (a CC map design platform), with no parts of the original maps in them. Should I include copyright information from original sources even in these cases? Both are maps from XVIII century anyway...--Ppn87 (talk) 12:48, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

@Ppn87: Hi,
Your maps are derivative works, so yes, you need to provide the source(s) of your map, and ensure that they are under a free license. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:46, 13 March 2019 (UTC)


Perdona, no entiendo muy bien el funcionamiento de la página. No parece nada lógico. No entiendo que los avisos los pueda editar o borrar cualquier usuario. De cualquier forma, no los quitaré, pero si no se deben quitar no debería de existir la opción de editarlos. Es absurdo.

Segundo: las imágenes y textos por los que se me denuncia, han sido subidos por mí a la web de la que se me acusa d eplagio en el artículo de la wikipedia que he editado. Yo soy el gestor y editor de la web y todo el contenido que en ella hay ha sido subido y editado por mí. No entiendo por qué ese mismo contenido que he subido yo, no lo puedo compartir y subir también a un artículo de la wikipedia.

Solicito se retiren los avisos, y se restituya el artículo por mí editado. He mandado un correo desde la dirección de la FEDV para que la wikipedia corrobore que soy el propietario y editor de los textos que allí se alojan y que tengo los derechos de las imágenes y textos.

(talk page stalker) @Everyonegoes2018: that may be true, but under Commons policy it’s not a valid argument for keeping copyrighted work. For one thing, we are concerned about ‘legal exposure’ not only on our own behalf (or the WMF’s), but also that of any & all reusers of the content here. For another, it is not unusual for a bankrupt company’s assets, including its intellectual properties, to be sold by the receivers or whoever, sometimes years after the fact. And the rights might still belong to an artist or agency if the company used the work only under licence.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 21:44, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

I have to admit I don't know a lot about bringing over files. I usually just put them on Commons, and if I do put them on en-wiki, it's for a reason that will remain true for some time. Since I kind of want to maintain the rather large upload histories, could you possibly help me to bring them over?

Structured Data - early depicts testingEdit

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)


Hola, buenas tardes.

Las imagenes que has eliminado son de la empresa donde trabajo.

¿Como puedo demostrar que tengo algún permiso para utilizar las imagenes de la empresa?
