Undeleted some files uploaded by Vpe (suite)Edit

Bonjour Yann,
Je me permet de revenir vers toi concernant le sujet des affiches électorales. Le but de ma démarche n'étant ni politique, ni personnel mais dans un esprit de clarification pour la communauté et dans ce cas dans adapter les règles se référant au sujet dans la mesure où il peut évoluer. J'ai été rechercher dans nos textes administratifs ce qui pourrait nous être utile pour mieux comprendre ce sujet, dans l'ordre :

  • La réglementation du Cncc, qui nous rappelle les principaux textes fondateurs ;
  • Chapitre III : L’affichage du conseil-constitutionnel, qui nous fournit des indications sur la liberté de la presse en application de la Loi du 29 juillet 1881 ;
  • l'article 15 suivant la Loi. Heureusement pour nous le texte est court et précise les modalités sur l'affichage et les dégradations ;
  • le traitement et valorisation d'un fonds d'affiches qui représente un mémoire sur le sujet traitant en page 57 du « paradoxe des affiches électorales » et conclut par : En effet, au nom de la liberté d’information, la jurisprudence considère que « la publication de personnes directement impliquées dans un évènement est licite », sous la seule réserve du respect de la dignité de la personne humaine. On peut donc considérer que les affiches politiques illustrées de la photographie des candidats entrent dans ce cadre-là.

Entre temps, le fichier Affiches électorales 2012.JPG, pour lequel j'avais demandé une révision de situation a été effacé pour cause de copyright.

Concernant, le fichier Montpellier montage couv.jpg : Je l'ai repris sur la base de certains fichiers sources (pour ne pas les avoir tous trouvé) et j'y ai adjoint des fichiers complémentaires mais le résultat ne me convient pas pleinement à cause de la photo Hôtel de Ville de Montpellier dont je ne suis pas sûr de la légalité. A ce titre, j'ai été reprendre des photos en ville pour trouver dans les architectures anciennes un sujet représentatif et valorisant pour la ville, que je pense avoir trouvé à cette heure. Juste quelques manipulations pour régénérer un fichier viable !

Concernant, le fichier Montpellier-fac droit bat2.jpg : J'ai été reprendre des photos mais d'importants feuillages empêchent une prise de vue adaptée.
Concernant, le fichier Cloitre fac droit montpellier.jpg : J'ai également pris quelques photos mais pas depuis l'étage comme sur la photo en cours car cette personne travaille sur les lieux.

Actuellement, je suis en train de faire les plans d'accès et de représentations des bâtiments des facultés de Montpellier afin d'établir une meilleure représentation des sites. Et, j'ai quelques dizaines de photos, dont certaines intéressantes, à uploader !

Voici, mes petits nouvelles d'actualités sur les sujets ! Cordialement, —— DePlusJean (talk) 16:48, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour DePlusJean,
Mais la loi sur la liberté de la presse n'est pas le problème. Et donc tous les textes que tu cites n'ont rien à voir. Il s'agit uniquement de la question du droit d'auteur sur 1. les sujets photographiés, 2. les photos elles-mêmes. Si Vpe ne donne aucune information, les images ne seront de toute façon pas restaurées. Il vaut donc mieux que tu refasses les montages à partir de tes propres images. Si elles incluent des bâtiments récents, il faut mettre les photos et le montage sur Wikipédia en français et non sur Commons. Et oublie les affiches électorales, elles ne peuvent pas être publiées sans un accord des auteurs, ce qui est quasiment impossible. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:45, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Bonsoir Yann,
Je te remercie des informations ci-dessus dont j'en prends bonne note. J'ai refait le photo montage pour la ville de Montpellier en restant sur l'idée de base de Vpe et en modifiant les photos litigieuses ou ambiguës. Effectivement, je confirme que : trier, déposer, géolocaliser, décrire, catégoriser, traduire, annoter, lier… représente un plein temps d'activité et non une anecdote de quelques minutes. J'ai été reprendre des photos de quelques lieux parmi la liste ci-dessus et je les déposerai sur Commons dès que possible. Merci encore de ton amabilité et disponibilité.
Cordialement, —— DePlusJean (talk) 17:15, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

ApologiesEdit

Hi Yann,

Sorry about the copyright violations. Didn't see any of the messages. Won't happen again. But however there is one image to which I own rights to, that was removed. I sent a request, hope it gets sorted out soon. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 111.223.143.123 (talk) 09:41, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

File:David Epston.jpg‬Edit

Bonjour Yann, j'ai demandé à David Epston de transmettre un copyright agreement à permissions-commons@wikimedia.org en mettant la photo en pièce jointe. Il l'a fait cette nuit, sachant qu'il habite en Nouvelle-Zélande, c'était peut-être demain :) Donc, quelle est l'étape suivante ? Puis-je finalement uploader et utiliser cette photo ? Cordialement, Fabrice Faimetti (talk) 17:23, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour Faimetti,
OTRS a une longue liste d'attente, particulièrement en anglais (environ 50 jours). Merci d'être patient. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 17:26, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Faimetti (talk) 07:03, 13 May 2017 (UTC)Merci Yann !

TriborgEdit

Hi, Yann - I have a question about File:Triborg.png which says it was uploaded by the image owner. Can you tell me if permissions received the necessary information to clear this image of potential copyvio? A new user created the article Triborg (En WP) which is totally unsourced, and uses that particular image. Thanks in advance for your help. Atsme 📞 00:24, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Atsme,
Yes, this image looks a bit suspicious to me. Please create a deletion request. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:02, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
Yann, I did as you advised. Question - if the image is being used on en.wikipedia, is it allowed to remain in light of a potential copyvio? I attempted to remove the image from the Triborg article, but an IP and a new user with 19 edits played the revert game. I don't have time for games. The article Mortal Combat X uses quite a few "fair use" images, so maybe that would be an alternate route for this one? Atsme 📞 15:19, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi, I don't edit much Wikipedia, so you have to see there by yourself. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:05, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Salut.Edit

Un mot pour signaler Commons:Deletion requests/File:Monument aux morts Aranc 01.jpg. Bonne journée.--Classiccardinal (talk) 05:20, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour Yann,
Je développe un peu le signalement de Classic. Comment ne pas faire de rapprochement avec ce débat que tu connais bien Commons:Deletion requests/File:Monument aux morts Aranc 01.jpg alors même que Classic y a participé et que l'auteur de la photo n'est autre...que Classic. Si encore les monuments ciblés avaient quelques originalités...il y a des monuments aux morts, y compris dans l'Ain (le département de toutes ces demandes intempestives), pour lesquels le maintien ou non dans Commons est une question qui peut se poser. Mais là ? (???).
Mon opinion est que le temps des mesures coercitives est venue au risque sinon de voir diminuer l'implication de contributeurs investis en particulier sur ce territoire (l'Ain particulièrement couvert par Chabe01, Classiccardinal, moi même...voir à ce propos Category:April 2017 in Ain), contributeurs pourtant très respectueux des règles. Nous n'avons aucun mal à comprendre la suppression de nos photos quand la contravention au droit d'auteur dans le pays concerné est manifeste : j'ai le cas en ce moment avec une ou deux de mes photos ici Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Your Rainbow Panorama, je les supprimerais moi même si je le pouvais.
Bref. Après avoir développer une nécessaire patience et ouverture, je suggère de mettre un coup d'arrêt à ce qui ressemble de plus en plus à de la désorganisation.
Bien à toi, --Benoît Prieur (d) 05:40, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
Bonjour Classiccardinal, Benoît Prieur,
C'est un nouvel utilisateur qui n'a pas compris le concept de de minimis, ni de seuil d'originalité. Je lui ai mis un mot. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 14:06, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

I'm working on getting copyright for my images!Edit

Hi, Yann!

Thank you for notifying me that my message violate copyright. I will contact the owners (I work with them directly), and they will send permission via email.

If you could update my profile considering this update, that would be greatly appreciated! Solutiondropsam (Solutiondropsam) 14:51, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

The files can be restored when the permission is accepted. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:38, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Copyright ownershipEdit

Dear Yann,

I' am writing to you concerning copyright ownership. Photos File:Linda Liepiņa.jpg, File:Atis-Zakatistovs.jpg with all the articles I've put into Wikipedia have been deleted, because I do not have the right to make copies. How can I get this right, or should I format Wiki articles somehow differently, because these photos have sources, they are authentic.

Yours Faithfully, Eduards776 —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 46.109.37.200 (talk) 22:00, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

@Eduards776: Hi,
File:Linda Liepiņa.jpg is copied from Twitter, and File:Atis-Zakatistovs.jpg has a watermark. Please the copyright owners of these pictures to send a permission via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:37, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Dear Yann, I'm Antonino Fogliani, I have the copyright of photos that I upload in my wiki pages. I want to update the photos of my page.

Thanks

@Musikaf: Hi,
Sorry, but no. Metadata of File:Antonino Fogliani.jpg shows that the author is Pietro Rocchetta Casadio, and it is tagged as "Foto Casadio © 2017". So please ask this person to send a permission via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:33, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

I'm very sorry, but I pay Casadio for this photos and I have the permission to use this without other steps... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Musikaf (talk • contribs) 08:22, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

@Musikaf: Hi,
A formal written permission is needed for any content when the uploader is not the author. Thanks, Yann (talk) 08:31, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Delete request for ABC 7 News CrewEdit

The image in question was captured personally by me. I do not know what you mean when you say "It was copied fro Facebook". Could you please be clear? I can upload it to Flickr and provide proper rights if that's what you mean. Please get back to me on this ASAP.

This is the request I'm talking about: Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Abc7nyc.jpg --Deadly437 (talk) 05:10, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Deadly437,
The EXIF data shows that it is copied from Facebook (FBMD* is added by Facebook). Please upload the original file, or send a permission via COM:OTRS, as for any content previously published elsewhere. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:40, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
I have sent an email to OTRS releasing the copyright. For your reference, this is the ticket number: #2017051510022087. For a temporary time I have a placeholder image of a lower resolution. When my request is approved, I will restore my previous image. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deadly437 (talk • contribs) 23:09, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Modernrocker4Edit

Hello, Why did you delete my pic? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Modernrocker4 (talk • contribs) 13:37, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

@Modernrocker4: Hi,
Because 1. You didn't answer in Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Modernrocker4; 2. These are small files without EXIF data. 3. At least 2 of them are copyright violations: File:YUSC.jpg, File:Maxcement.jpg.
Please get a permission from the copyright owner before uploading files. Then send the permission as explained on COM:OTRS.
For your own pictures, upload the original unmodified images with complete EXIF data. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:34, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

New account wants to upload a new versionEdit

I've encouraged the author of File:Matterhorn sunset 2016 (Unsplash).jpg to join Commons and he's willing to upload a higher resolution / higher quality version of the file. He's created an account User:SamuelFerrara but when he goes to the page is says "You cannot overwrite this file". Is this because their account is too new? Is there a way to give them permission, or do they have to simply make other edits for a while until their account matures? What's the rule? -- Colin (talk) 21:08, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Yes, new account can't overload files. The account needs to be autoconfirmed to do so. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:28, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Ticket:2017032410021583Edit

Salut, j'ai remarqué que ce ticket n'a pas reçu de réponse, mais tu as inséré l’autorisation dans les fichiers. C'est un oubli ou tu voulais répondre plus tard? J'ai aussi vu que permissions-fr avait pas mal de tickets non répondus, quand il y a quelques semaines elle était "en bonne santé" ; tu sais ce qui se passe?

Bonne journée! :-) Ruthven (msg) 10:58, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour,
Je ne me souviens pas, mais c'est probablement un oubli, maintenant réparé. Curieusement, le client dit que le logo a été effacé, mais ce compte n'a importé aucun logo.
L'équipe OTRS francophone est très réduite. Si par hasard, les volontaires sont absents en même temps, la liste s'allonge soudain. Heureusement, il n'y a pas tant de tickets que ça, et tout est rapidement rentré dans l'ordre. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 14:13, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Copyrighted material without permissionEdit

Hello,

I don't think you saw my notification about some pictures that should have been deleted, since the material is copyrighted and the uploader doesn't know if this could be released under a free license since the photographer is unknown.

BR, --AntonierCH (d) 20:10, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

WikidiaEdit

Yann, pour le gros travail que j'ai entrepris sur John Holker et son fils John Holker, Jr., j'aurais besoin de montrer la navette volante de John Kay, et les gravures d'époque sont peu claires. Par contre, un schéma de wikidia l'est. Mais pour les raisons que vous savez, maintenant je me méfie. Si wikidia est une filiale de wikipedia, ce serait sans problème. Pouvez-vous me le confirmer ? Merci --Anglo-norman (talk) 16:41, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour Anglo-norman,
Il faut que le dessinateur autorise la publication sous une licence libre. Voyez COM:OTRS pour les instructions. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 17:46, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Content ViolationEdit

Yann, you have accused me of violating copyright yet I am on the Board of Directors for the page that I am editing and therefore know that the logos are free use. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ck-2013 (talk • contribs) 19:52, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

@Ck-2013: Hi,
Until proven otherwise, you are anonymous here. So please send a permission for a free license via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 19:56, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Your unfounded threatsEdit

I have just got this message from you that I find shocking and inappropriate: "It has come to our attention that you have uploaded several files that are copyright violations. You have done so despite requests from editors not to do so, and despite their instructions. See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons. You may also find Commons:Copyright rules by subject matter useful. This is your last warning. Continuing to upload copyright violations will result in your account being blocked."

That is ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE. I upload only the files that:

1. I have created myself in my capacity of a graphic artist. 2. Are from my personal archives. 3. I have permission to upload.

Last time I uploaded the photo of Canadian politician Chris Alexander from whom I have personal permission (see below email):

Sincerely, Chris Alexander.

Any more questions or warnings? Actually, apology would not hurt. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Baltvilks (talk • contribs) 20:00, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

@Baltvilks: Hi,
First, please stay mellow. We delete around 2,000 images a day, mostly for copyright violations.
Second, as for any content previously published elsewhere, a formal written permission is needed.
Third, the message on your talk page is just a warning. Everything will be OK if you don't upload images without a proper permission.
Fourth, the files may be undeleted when the permission is processed. As there is always a backlog, it may take some time. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:09, 16 May 2017 (UTC)


Please check my answer at Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_Baltvilks ...................................... First: I am staying mellow. Second: Do I need written permission given from myself to myself? :)))) Are you kidding me? Third: This warning by itself is NOT OK. Fourth: I do not care too much about the files. More about this harassment that you seem to enjoy. Fifth: It looks that I am having no other choice but to request the deletion of your account as you seem to use it exclusively for harassing and insulting other Wiki members. ...................................... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Baltvilks (talk • contribs) 02:04, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

A copy of my comment is below:

I am deeply insulted by the phrase that the above images are "unlikely to be own works". Why is that "unlikely"? If the author of this statement is unable to create such artworks it does not mean that some other people are not. Please be advised that ALL the above files have been CREATED BY MYSELF in my capacity of an amateur graphic artist. What kind of proof do you need? I can email yo you ORIGINAL COREL DRAW FILES if you wish to provide me with your email addresses. Alternatively you are welcome to visit me at my office in Victoria (BC), Canada and check my computer before making such slanderous statements.

The FILES THAT ARE MY OWN AND EXCLUSIVE WORK are:

As for the file File:Andreas (Andrew) Andersen.jpg, it is MY OWN selfie.

Regarding the files

The permission has already been sent to you in my previous message.

In any case, here is my contact information: Dr. Andrew Andersen

And I actually expect apology for the unfounded allegations.

Angrily yours, Dr. Andrew Andersen (user Balltvilks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Baltvilks (talk • contribs) 20:23, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

@Baltvilks:
The permission at ticket:2017050910001996 mentioned above isn't for the above files.
Now you are claiming a different story at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Baltvilks, that's why there is a suspicion about the licensing of these files. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:06, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Jim Hamilton (rugby Union) imageEdit

Hi Yann,

I'm not sure what has caused this recent flurry of banning threats and editing wars but it would be great to get to the bottom of what's causing it so we can all move on with our lives. I have uploaded an image of the rugby player Jim Hamilton I own and is 100% mine to do with however I please. I'm not sure what proof you desire other than the Creative Commons listing nor can I begin to understand what the other user Stemoc was trying to accomplish or communicate with the odd religious insinuations which passed for his "editing".

A steer on how you'd like to resolve this tiresome non-issue would be appreciated as we seem to have arrived at an entente. I remain unconvinced that threatening bans and the seemingly arbitrary deletion of images is likely to help Wikipedia matters much so finding the solution to enable the photo of Jim Hamilton to be used on his Wikipedia entry should be the objective for all interested parties. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Subclassic (talk • contribs) 21:02, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

@Subclassic: Hi,
You uploaded 3 files, and 2 of them are obvious copyright violations. That's why there is quite a suspicion about File:Jim Hamilton professional rugby player.jpg. Could you please upload the original image with EXIF data, or send a permission via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:25, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
@Yann:
Your use of the word "obvious" is galling, particularly when I have uploaded the original file - three times - with the associated copyright info. You and the other user who's taken an unnatural interest in this are ostensibly calling into question my integrity, something I resent almost as much as the time which is being wasted on this. It remains unclear to me how either of you is qualified to opine on this matter so I've raised a ticket with Permission - Wikipedia Commons. It's ticket:2017051610023208 should you wish to update your records. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Subclassic (talk • contribs) 07:50, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
@Subclassic: Hi,
I restored the image, and added a reference to your ticket. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:39, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
@Yann:

Thank you however please can you explain why the following message is now associated with the image?

"....the message was not sufficient to confirm permission for this file. This may, among other reasons, be because there was no explicit release under a free license, or the email address that the permission came from is not associated with the location where the content was originally published. For an update on the issue, please contact the user (Yann) who added this template to the page, or someone else with an OTRS account, or the OTRS noticeboard. If a valid permission is not provided within 30 days of the first response by an OTRS volunteer, this file will be deleted. Please do not file an additional deletion nomination for permission reasons."

How is the email message, "....not sufficient to confirm permission" given that the email gives outright permission for the image to be used by the copyright holder himself?

How is the following passage relevant if permission from the copyright holder has been granted, "...the email address that the permission came from is not associated with the location where the content was originally published." How can an email address be associated with a Wikipedia page? The image doesn't appear ANYWHERE else on the internet and is for the exclusive use on Jim Hamilton's Wikipedia page.

What now qualifies as a "valid permission" given that permission has been granted by the copyright holder? "If a valid permission is not provided within 30 days of the first response by an OTRS volunteer, this file will be deleted."

Some help on resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated rather than continued opaque references to more and insufficient permissions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Subclassic (talk • contribs) 09:32, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I didn't validate the permission. That will be done later. Please note that there is a huge backlog, so it will take some time. Thanks, Yann (talk) 14:10, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Good morning,

It seems like you have blocked my account. I would like to know why and what happens when someone is blocked.

Thanks, Pedrocoiso1 (talk)

Pedrocoiso1, your account was blocked for a week because you continue to upload non-free images after warning. You won't be able to upload media files here. Note that this is not a punitive action but to prevent you from further uploading unfree images to Common. Hope you are good, Yann? Regards. Wikicology (talk) 13:15, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

At Commons:Undeletion_requests/Current_requests#File:Arakane_Satomi.jpg_This_is_the_picture_I_took_in_my_Selfportrait_picture.21: you've closed this so I figured I shouldn't further comment there, but it would seem to me that an alternative to COM:OTRS would be that the same Twitter account that posted the picture in the first place could tweet confirming identity with the uploader, or indicating a license. - Jmabel ! talk 16:13, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jmabel,
IMO Tweeter is not a reliable source for images. Anyone can create an account there with any name, and post any picture. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:16, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Facebook imagesEdit

Two authors who supplied photos from facebook have supplied OTRS confirmation, but the third said that he did not understand CC-by-SA well enough, despite my explanations, to make the correct decision. Consequently I would appreciate if you could delete all the photos in Category:Photographs by Per Holmen at the first convenience, and would appreciate confirmation. I learned a lesson here, and will take extra care in future. JMK (talk) 20:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi JMK,
Could you please create a deletion request? Thanks, Yann (talk) 08:40, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
It is here: Deletion requests/Per Holmen photos. The authors who did supply OTRS confirmation are Leonie Kellermann and Birding Weto Tours. If there are any others you noticed, I can follow up on them. JMK (talk) 14:32, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi JMK, Thanks for creating the request. This is not a simple request, and the images are widely used, so I'd like to have opinions from several admins. Is there an OTRS ticket about this? Where did Per Holmen say that he didn't agree about a free license? Regards, Yann (talk) 17:28, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
No there was no OTRS permission from Mr Per Holmen. I arranged with him that I'll hold temporary copyright on 1 file, and then release that 1 file immediately under CC-by-SA-04. I asked him: "Are you sure what CC-by-SA involves?", and I then did some explaining, noting that it can be used by anyone for free. I requested only 1 file from him, but then he offered more and larger images as he was pleased with the upload, and I uploaded another 8 files (quick count), though I declined his offer of high resolution files. The other 97 files were uploaded by User:Silltruten completely independent of me, after he saw my uploads and contacted and arranged with Mr Per Holmen independently. Mr Holmen revealed on a private facebook message that he is not happy with the CC-by-SA when I contacted him about OTRS, after you wrote to me. Then he repeated his wish for copyright in an e-mail to User:Silltruten and me. I assume he got our e-mails via wikimedia. I can forward all these communications. JMK (talk) 17:45, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi JMK, These will probably be deleted in a few days. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:45, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
That will be very good for public relations. Mr Holmen affirmed that the release of the first file, Mirafra africana subsp nyikae, Kitulo NP, Per Holmen, a .jpg, under CC-by-SA-04 is ok, but not the rest. So I'll remove that single file from the list once he sent OTRS permission for it. JMK (talk) 20:35, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

FacultiesIntactEdit

Hey Yann, sorry it's taken me so long to respond to your message. I've been working with my clients, educating both them and myself on the finer points of Commons' policies. I wanted to make sure my clients and myself understood the situation as best as we could before taking further actions. Jeff G. has been incredibly generous with his time and patience in helping me unravel this whole fiasco. I told him that by pure oversight we'd used incorrect language in the release statement for our clients, and we've since fixed that, in addition to recommending the usage of the release generator to avoid any of these incidents in the future. At the end of it all, I deeply regret that things escalated into this situation. While I was initially frustrated that what seemed to me to be one incident became my "last warning," ultimately I'm glad that it was brought to my attention at this point rather than later down the line. I want to assure you that I take these violations seriously, and I'm doing everything that I can to prevent a situation like this from happening again.--FacultiesIntact (talk) 02:19, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi FacultiesIntact,
You must disclose that you work as a paid editor on your user page. Thanks, Yann (talk) 08:43, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Consul GeneralEdit

Sorry for the mistakes committed. I will try to fix it. I have asked all copy right owners for permission which I received in German or Englisch but apparently not forwarded and published this permission in the adequate form expected by Wikipedia to proof the received permission. I ask you to extend the delay since I got aware of the "mess" only now! I hope copy right owners are able to give me the permission again in the correct form. I try my best.

BeckMegaEdit

Hello! You text me several times that I upload files that are copyright violations. Why you thing that these files are copyrighted? I am close friend with that person who are these photos and the last year i make him a Wikipedia page because he is the biggest Twitch streamer in Bulgaria. But the people in the Bulgarian Wikipedia thought that this page was not meaningful enough so they delete it. Now I wrote to the person to whom the pictures are and he will send me permission to use them, which I had before, but it will be written now. Then what should i do? Should I send it to you or something else? --BeckMega (talk) 11:16, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

CupidvogelEdit

I did not upload messages inspite of editor's instructions. I uploaded them, then discussed the details with them, and was trying to to gather the required permissions from the correct places as other editors instructed me to do so. I understand that you are a moderator and have privileges, but make sure to wield them wisely and when required, and not just because you have the license to do so. I am as sincere and dedicated a Wikipedia contributor as anybody else, and don't make the mistake of thinking that you are the only person who cares for Wikipedia. Most of the repeated images ARE in fact authorized by respective sources for me to upload in public domain, I was just trying to find a way of making that information public. And couldn't get to it in time because I have lot of work to do. It is okay if the content has to be deleted because it exceeds the stipulated time, but do not use a warning as an excuse to delete a faithful user's account. And secondly, as far as I remember, no editor actually instructed me. It was I who posted questions in some pages as to how to post images with proper license information. If you are planning to show off your moderator privileges, at least do some proper homework. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cupidvogel (talk • contribs) 23:03, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

@Cupidvogel: Hi,
First calm down and stay mellow. Second all images you uploaded are not made by you, so they are copyright violations unless otherwise proven. The copyright owner has to send a formal written for a free license via COM:OTRS, and it is very unlikely that Amazon will agree to do so. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:46, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Inadvertent copyright violationEdit

Hi Yann, apologies for the inadvertent violations to copyright laws. I hadn't been checking all of these messages, but I do hope my account isn't blocked as a result. Also, to avoid any further misunderstandings, can you clarify what the copyright violation was? I think I see that perhaps taking a photo of a campaign poster might be the reason? Anyway, the violations were not intentional, I was in Paris during elections and interested in contributing newsworthy images leading up to voting. Additionally, I had seen some similar sorts of photos in newspapers to document the election so my intention was to do the same but through the wikimedia commons community.

So, for example, for a news article from 2007 https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/High_turnout_observed_in_French_presidential_election why is this image permitted?: File:French_presidential_elections_2007_Paris_Place_dItalie_12_candidates.jpg — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lashaull (talk • contribs) 16:47, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

I'm somewhat on the newer side of contributing, and while I really like having the ability to offer my images so they can be made use of by others, It's not always clear what is and is not something that will be in violation. Getting a terse message that I might be blocked without additional guidance and clarification sends a message, however, I would think it would be more helpful to most users get a message along with some guidance and explanation so that we will have a better idea for potential future contributions to know what is and is not a permitted.

Again, thanks for letting me know and any additional guidance on contributing photos would be extremely helpful and appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lashaull (talk • contribs) 16:35, 25 May 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lashaull (talk • contribs) 16:56, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi, This is probably an oversight. We certainly have at least 100,000 undiscovered copyright violations on Commons among our nearly 40 million files. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:29, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Re alleged copyrighted picturesEdit

Im writing again to condemn your accusation of my using the Dublin Celts photos, where is your proof that Iv violated the copyright? Im still very annoyed at your last message. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 83.71.141.170 (talk) 23:45, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
