Photos Daniel Candé/GallicaEdit

Bonjour Yann. Vous venez de me répondre sur la page discussion Raconnish. Je vois qu'il y a plein de photos Daniel Candé en fait sur Wikimedia Commons venant de Gallica (que vous proposez à la suppression). Il faut vous préciser que la situation est impossible : Gallica annonce que toutes les photos présentes sur le titre sont libres de droit et concernant Daniel Candé, ils vous renvoient quand même sur la SAIF (Société des Auteurs Des Arts Visuels et De L'Image ) qui gère ses droits d'auteurs , en vous précisant que pour Wikimedia, il ne devrait pas y avoir de problèmes. Or la SAIF ne répond jamais, ni positivement, ni négativement, en tout cas par mail. Je vais finir par me déplacer dans leurs locaux - s'ils sont ouverts car le téléphone sonne aussi dans le vide - pour en avoir le coeur net. En tout cas, ils n'ont visiblement pas réagi à l'utilisation des inommbrables photos présentes dans Wikiedia (Aldo Maccione, Sabine Haudepin, etc....).

file violationsEdit

Hello Yann

During your request I am happy to say I have the right files and approve to use materials and content which I have uploaded. I have a signed file which allow me to use any content from the webpage and photos. Unfortunately, it was not written as following the Wikimedia standards, and therefore I might suggest that you would postpone your notice until I will provide the necessary authorizations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by The contentor (talk • contribs) 19:03, 19 June 2017 (UTC)


Dear Yann! Hello Yann, Sorry, but violance was not my goal. I have mistakenly assumed that in the case of officially used print media provisions are not so sharp: my mistake. Piratenkniff — Preceding unsigned comment added by Piratenkniff (talk • contribs) 09:07, 21 June 2017 (UTC)


I have asked the author of the pictures to sent me a copyright information. Unfortunately, he has not replied yet. Will follow up with him again. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 21:30, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

OTRS check pleaseEdit

Yann, I'm not an OTRS member currently, but can you check this image please -- File:Raju parulekar.jpg? There's an OTRS ticket that was added with the upload, not by an OTRS member, and I just deleted some text copyvio from the user on cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 11:26, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

All other remaining uploads also have to be checked as they suffer from the same problems. Some 30 other uploads have been deleted. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 11:29, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
Yann, Just checking again as you may have missed this, or would you like me to check elsewhere? cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 04:05, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
  Done Yann (talk) 09:09, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

copyright for photosEdit

Hi, you say that I have been violating copyright rules by uploading new photos. But that is totally wrong. I have the explicit support from the photographer (Peter Knutson) to deliver and upload this portrait photos to Wikimedia Commons for this purpose. I don't understand why you choose to threaten to suspend my account. Please alter your tone...

Best regards, Staffan Dopping — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stadop (talk • contribs) 20:54, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

@Stadop: Hi,
You need a formal written permission from the photographer to upload images which are not your own works. And any file without proper permission is deleted as copyright violation unless proven otherwise. That's the standard procedure on Commons. If the photographer gives a permission, he has to send it following instructions on COM:OTRS, then the files can be restored once the permission is validated. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:09, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Please undelete File:Skranevatnet (Foto av Silver Song).jpgEdit

I believe I provided valid proof of the permission I got from Davood Hassani, the copyright holder of the image. Why was it still removed? I sent an email with him saying it was okay to use on wikipedia, as long as I mentioned his name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr Democracy (talk • contribs) 22:29, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

@Mr Democracy: Hi,
The file will be restored when the permission is validated. As there is an important backlog, it can take some time. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:38, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
@Yann: How long time does it usually take? It has been months since it was removed, and I sent the email with proof of the permission I got. Where can I see the pending list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr Democracy (talk • contribs) 16:17, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
@Mr Democracy: Hi, Do you have the ticket number? Regards, Yann (talk) 16:19, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
@Yann: Here is the Ticket:2017022510015581. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr Democracy (talk • contribs) 18:04, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
@Mr Democracy: There is no permission in this ticket. This file is from Flickr, where it is under "All rights reserved". It was answered on 16-04-2017 to provide a permission, or better, to change the license at the source. Please note that "okay to use on wikipedia" is not sufficient. We need a permission for free license. Regards, Yann (talk) 19:45, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
@Yann: What do you mean by "There is no permission"? I uploaded screenshots of the emails I exchanged with the copyright holder. If they are not present, where would I go to re-upload the screenshots? Best Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr Democracy (talk • contribs) 13:36, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Tagging copyvios Marcinklos2003 (talk · contribs)Edit

Hello. The uploader was informed yesterday on his Polish user talk page. Most of his uploads are copyright violations. In spite of having been warned several times, he keeps on uploading non-free files. I gave him the final warning. Regards. Cynko (talk) 06:40, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

OK, thanks, Yann (talk) 10:41, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

For WarningEdit

Hi Yann, Thanks for the warning, I think I made a mistake, I just get their Photos through email and upload without checking their property. you can delete those pictures, I will try to get their picture by myself later. regards - Nirmal Dulal (talk) 15:11, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

My photosEdit

Hi Yann! Some of the photos you requested to delete I own their rights and my personal portrayal. Dahomvic (talk) 15:42, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Dahomvic,
Most of your uploads are not your own works, so you need a formal written permission from the copyright owner (i.e. the photographer) to publish them here. Please see COM:OTRS for the instructions. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:07, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
For example File:الشيخ فهد بن ظويهر.jpg, this photo from my blog for someone famous from my family. The picture I got from the family album. Its own work.Dahomvic (talk) 21:10, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Dahomvic, the copyright belongs to the photographer, not to you. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:35, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Yann, But the photographer died a long time ago! And he from the family. This applies to this document I copied it myself File:وثيقة فهد بن ظويهر.jpg.Dahomvic (talk) 17:22, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Dahomvic, You don't need to ping me on my own talk page. Yes, copyright can last for a very long time. Please request undeletion on COM:UDR with the following information: name of the photographer with your relation to him/her, date of publication, etc. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:29, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

DVargasCRI: you sent me a warning message on uploadin copywrited materialsEdit

please specify which material are you referring to. I receiv d a notification on the imag JuanCarlosRojas that I sent the proper documentation that I read was required to publish, yet I still get this warning that my account will be suspended.

Why am I receiving this message? Did you not get my document after I followed the stated procedure? Do you want me to delete the file and then upload it again?

Your message was very vague in terms of what can I do to correct the problem. Or is there nothing to do and I should just sit with my arms coprossed waitinfpg for the notice that my account is suspended.

Please explain in detail what can I do, if anything, to change this situation. I was under the impression that I was doing everything by the book. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 18:52, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Вільям: You told me that uploaded images without copyrightEdit

Good day. The picture I added last times contained a portrait of Vasily Stus, which seemed to require permission. I had an interview with someone who has access to this mailbox If I upload this same file, but without the image of Vasily Stus everything will be ok? —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 07:26, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

I'm about the file that is located under this link File:«The_University_news».jpg. Unfortunately, he was removed. Вільям (talk)
Hi Вільям,
As this was published before, a formal written permission is needed. Please see COM:OTRS for the instructions. The file will be restored will the permission is validated, which can take some time, as there is always a backlog. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:19, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Copyright violation warningEdit

I am logged in now.

I received a warning from you that I have uploaded copyrighted material. The image File:Juan Carlos Rojas.jpg has been deleted. I received a warning several days prior to this new one stating that I should provide proof that the image I uploaded has the release from its author which I sent by email on July 12th. Now I thought I followed the correct procedure emailing this document to But then I received your message stating that I have uploaded several files that are copyright violations.

I am unclear why this has happened. I do not wish for my account to be blocked if I followed (or so I thought) the instructions stated in the page. Please explain to me what exactly I am doing wrong?

Since instructions on this page are not clear to me, I wish to know how can I correct this.

I enclose the text from the document I sent by email to the address above

Copyright violation warning - File:Japinha-qualeadele.jpgEdit

Hi there, the image File:Japinha-qualeadele.jpg was removed from Ricardo Di Roberto Wikipedia webpage, but it was properly sent to by the copywriter on July 11th,2017. Can you explain the reeason it was removed, please? Best regards.--Edi Veloso (talk) 11:11, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

--Edi Veloso (talk) 11:13, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Edi Veloso,
This was published before, so a formal written permission is needed. Do you have the ticket number? BTW there is no need to copy the permission here. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:16, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Yann. Yes, I have the original Ticket:2017061310006776. I had sent many additional notifications to with the copywriter permission, but no answers till now. I appreciate if you or any additional volunteer can update the usage authorization of this image based on the permission the copywriter sent. Thank you in advance. --Edi Veloso (talk) 15:24, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Edi Veloso,
No permission was received for this file. According to the information provided in the file description, the photographer is Priscila Prade, so the permission has to come from her. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:30, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Logo Slovenskej sporiteľneEdit

Hello you added the PD-textlogo template on copyrighted logo File:Logo Slovenskej sporiteľne.png. It's a copyrighted typeface Erste Group and has a logo (not text) on the right side, so please delete the file. Thanks. —Kandy Talbot 12:53, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

This is clearly {{PD-textlogo}}. There is no reason to delete it, let alone speedy delete it. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:55, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Nice! So almost all latest logos are PD-textlogo and all rendered copyrighted fonts are public domain. Good to know. :) —Kandy Talbot 13:11, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Regarding the warning for copyright violationEdit

Hello Yann...

I am so sorry and appologize for the violations of your policy. But as a beginner, i am little ignorant perhaps, because all the images i uploaded is not a violation because i am associated with them personally and i have uploaded them with consent. Please guide me what exactly i have to do to approve those images.

Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 2401:4900:1805:4100:1D06:23DF:1C55:7526 (talk) 13:54, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Protéger les fichiers importantsEdit

Cher Yann !
C'est tout naturellement que je me suis tournée vers Magog the Ogre pour demander de supprimer l'ancienne version du fichier en raison des renseignements personnels. Ainsi, il va supprimer tous les quatre mes fichier. Lisez, s'il vous plaît, ici :

Je vous serais très reconnaissant si vous pouviez m'aider à protéger ces documents importants.--V2016 (talk) 15:15, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour V2016,
L'acte de naissance peut être héberger sur Commons, mais pour les autres fichiers, Magog a raison. Ils sont hors sujet ici, sans parler que l'auteur des lettres détient les droits d'auteur. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 15:23, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Postpone notice of deletion Files Author LorenruEdit

Hello Yann

You left a message about two files that are copyright violations, these pictures were taken with my ipad and I have them. I would really appreciate if you can postpone your notice of deletion until I find how to submite the rights on wikimedia commons. I cannot do it straight now because I am at work thus I will do it when I come back to home. I also would appreciate if you could please provide me the instructions to justify these pictures were taken with my ipad. Best Lorenru Lorenru (talk) 20:31, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Lorenru,
You have one week to upload the original files, or send a permission. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:53, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi Yann,
Could you please provide me the link where I can find the instructions to upload the original file? I tried to edit the file uploading the original but it semes that I have to delet it and create a new one, is it correct? Lorenru
Hi Lorenru,
You don't need to ping me on my own talk page. No, you do not need to delete the files. Please go at the bottom of each file page, there is a link "Upload a new version of this file". Regards, Yann (talk) 22:13, 18 July 2017 (UTC)


Well.. im new in this stuff ,sorry if I upload photos with copyright or stuff like that , So it is ok, from now on I will use images that have uploaded other users and if I want to upload an image, I do not know if it would be well to consult with you on your discussion page.

Thanks --Cookies1001 (talk) 01:27, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Cookies1001,
Our policy is quite simple: only upload images created by yourself, with your own camera.

Mantua PostcardEdit

hi, I wrote to you because I noticed that the restored mantova postcards files, in addition to being restored, you also added an additional license, including photographs, if you are the administrator who had restored the following files then , I would kindly thank you ,,,,,,, And given that you are an administrator, I would like to take advantage of these files uploaded by this user that has been locked in the past.

Hi Yann,

I see the edits and images I included for the Four Loko page were taken down due to copyright violation concerns. How can I get these images approved? This is my first time making edits so please excuse my ignorance —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 2600:1008:B05F:9679:F063:31A2:8AA8:CE63 (talk) 20:36, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Deletion requests without due researchEdit

Please Yann, your 3 deletion requests here, here and here are done without due research. The European Parliament has the rights and gives them free to use. At "Permission=" I even gave the link where the EP states this. Ymnes (talk) 17:25, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Ymnes,
It seems not, the permission is only for fair use. Nevertheless, do not remove a warning, or you might be blocked. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:27, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

You do know I'm an admin and qualified to make that decision? Rodhullandemu (talk) 16:18, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Rodhullandemu,
{{nd}} is used when closing the requests, but you didn't close them. Beside, it is best to wait for 24h before closing them. And could you please add {{user admin}} on your user page? Regards, Yann (talk) 16:21, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Apologies and thanks.Edit

Because I am a newbie, I did not understand how to correctly upload the images. In fact, I have not uploaded any image since July 19, so I hope you apologize. I assure you it will not happen again.
