Bystander selfieEdit

Yann, as you know, there is discussion of bystander selfies currently at Commons talk:Own work. At least one administrator seems to think that the matter is open-and-shut, and it's true that some administrators are using evidence (often obvious) that a bystander took a photo of the uploader as proof that the uploader was not the owner of the copyright and so could not release it, and this is leading to actual disruption, including an uploader being accused of being a "liar," because of claiming "own work." Yet I have been unable to find any prior discussion on-point. I have been studying the issue in depth at User:Abd/Bystander photos and am finding that there is no clear law on this, the closest thing I have found is a law review paper by a professor on the definition of authorship, and it does not take the naive position being asserted here. The paper notes certain interpretive contradictions in actual case law, and, in the end, it would lead to an opposite conclusion.

Has this issue ever been discussed by the community? If so, where? Thanks. --Abd (talk) 14:47, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

@Abd: Hi,
Yes, this was discussed on COM:VP/C, and Carl L., which I think is the most knowledgeable about copyright laws here expressed something like my opinion. But there was not any definitive conclusion. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:09, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Fae pointed me to a discussion, Commons talk:Transfer of copyright, and which led to two things: A deletion discussion where the file was kept and the person who held the camera was disregarded, and then a WMF "preliminary legal position," which is exactly on point: m:Wikilegal/Authorship_and_Copyright_Ownership#The_Example_of_the_Third_Party_Photographer. The conclusion there is diametrically opposite to what is being asserted, and your position is totally supported:
If someone wanted to take a picture of himself at a particular time and place, posed in a certain manner, but did not have a timer or tripod, and asked someone else to take the photo for him, most likely the person asking someone else to take his photo would be considered the sole author.
Thanks. I want to nail this down before proposing perhaps dozens of undeletions! I seem to be getting close. I will look for the discussion you mention. --Abd (talk) 15:53, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I have come to a position ready to express. I'll see what comes up based on a draft at User:Abd/Bystander photos/Bystander selfies, which I have mentioned in the discussion at Commons talk:Own work. A fairly simple justification for the policy is on the attached Talk page. Comment is welcome, and, as well, advice on how to proceed. I've been reviewing deletion discussions, and Commons has been ragged about this, decisions have gone both ways, probably because the community never nailed this down. And at least one user has suffered fairly heavily from an imagination that the bystander must own the copyright. Thanks for your comments, let's get this straight. --Abd (talk) 23:45, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

C'est simple. Vous pouvez importer les photos dont vous êtes l'auteur, si le sujet lui-même n'est pas sujet à un droit d'auteur. Pour les autres cas, il faut une autorisation des ayant-droits. Voyez COM:OTRS/fr dans ce cas. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:14, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Closing deletion reviews earlyEdit

Hello again. I note that you have closed at least two of my DRs early. One I have already mentioned and the other is the last one at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Israel. THe policy at Commons:Deletion policy#Closure reads "In general, requests can be closed by an administrator after seven days." Can you please reopen them so that editors get a chance to discuss them?

@Alan Liefting: When will you stop being disruptive? Don't try to reopen them, or continue in this way, or you will get blocked. This is a warning. BTW the 7-day rule is only an indication. A DR can be closed before 7 days, or after, depending of the case. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:12, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

As I think you know, I've been working on the bystander selfie issue. Some background: my home wiki is Wikiversity. I noticed that a user, ShustovVal, edited the user page for Shustov, commented about it (we don't like that!), and looked into the accounts globally, and saw what had been happening here. I recognized the issues from long work with confused users, and this one was quite confused! He is almost eighty years old....

He has been creating resources on matters where he's expert: the mitigation of earthquake damage -- he is or has recently been a professor in the field -- and exercise. As part of this, he had bystanders take photos and videos of himself. He also used a self-timer on occasion, apparently. By the time we are his age, we often don't remember exactly what we did in a particular situation! He did not lie, but his raising the self-timer issue was taken as a lie. I read his argument the same as I've read similarly from others: if I could have used a self-timer, why are you assuming I did not?

In any case, this took me into the whole issue of bystander selfies, because something seemed off to me about the arguments I was seeing, not to mention the gross incivility I ran across. He was uncivil himself, but ... he was also treated rather badly. I engaged with him and warned him about his behavior, and he trusted me, which is why his disruptive incivility has ceased. I'm now working gradually on repairing the damage.

In working on User:Abd/Bystander photos/Deletion discussions, which I think is just the tip of the iceberg, I reread Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by ShustovVal, where you closed based on the arguments of two users who think that bystander selfies are absolutely not releasable by the subject. That, as you know, conflicts with WMF legal opinion. I can also show contrary case law and expert opinion, and substantial Commons precedent as well. It is possible to argue that the bystander has some ownership, but what is problematic is arguing that, under these circumstances, the subject has no copyright. If the subject has copyright or a joint copyright, the subject may release the files for our use. Some of us have made the whole thing far more complicated than it need be.

Would you reconsider that close? Depending on the outcome of the work I'm doing developing consensus on this, I expect I will be requesting undeletion of many files, but generally, my intention has been to do this at once, because it's a solitary issue. So it's okay to leave it as it is, but I would rather ask you now. If there is cleanup to do, I'd be happy to handle it, I just did that with this.

As well, are you aware of other bystander selfie deletions or deletion discussions? It is not easy to find these! And, as well, if you have any suggestions about how I can or should proceed? I'm all ears. I do know my way around a wiki and generic wiki process. But you are highly experienced here. --Abd (talk) 21:09, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Files from ShustovVal are a different issue, IMO. These are not selfies, but derivative works of YouTube videos. I think that pictures made by passer-by are fine, if the passer-by did not do anything else than pushing the button. This has to be reviewed on case by case basis. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:32, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about not making a section header!
ShustovVal = Shustov, openly acknowledged and definite. (Also User:ShustovVal and User:Vshustov and I also find User:Shu0010
If these are derivative of Youtube videos, this was not shown in the DR. (I consider bystander selfies to include videos; Shustov writes that sometimes the bystander only held the camera, it was started by self-timer. Holding the camera means establishing and maintaining framing in all bystander selfies. Because self-timer for videos seemed implausible to me, I questioned him on this carefully. He wrote that he used the self-timer because he had experience that bystanders did not properly press Record and he then had to redo the video. So the only job he gave them. sometimes, was holding the camera.
Now, if there are issues as to licenses for videos that he uploaded to Commons, that is a very different issue, and I'm surprised it was not brought up in the DR. Was the youtube video source acknowledged in the files? I cannot tell our upload dates because the files have been deleted. What information should Shustov gather, and what steps should he take so that these files may be properly licensed? Thanks. --Abd (talk) 15:03, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
If you will temporarily undelete the files, I will gather what information is in them. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 15:06, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
If addition to copyright issues, I think that these pictures are self-promotion, so out of scope here. The videos may be useful, and I asked the uploader several times to upload them with a permission, or to change the license on YouTube. Shustov only answered with attacks and insults. See also Jim's talk page, and the relevant DRs. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:58, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm quite aware of Shustov's history. He very much did not understand what was happening, that's clear, from this and other interactions. Yann, I studied this case before becoming involved. And I've reprimanded him for incivility. You might notice that he has stopped.
However, that's not relevant to the license issues. Many, many of his deleted images were in actual use, so not out of scope. What I've seen with Shustov, and this case is typical, is that a nom is made on one issue. And it's resolved, but becomes a nom on another issue. Now, two more issues have been raised for the same files. I am not saying that the issues are not legitimate issues. I'm suggesting that we understand how this will look to a user like Shustov. Yes, he got cranky, very cranky. And so have some others with less excuse than him. I'm still asking for temporary undeletion, so I may examine the files, instead of guessing. Should I take the above as a denial of the request? Thanks. --Abd (talk) 20:59, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Purported Copyright ViolationsEdit

Hello, Yann. My apologies for appearing to be uploading images & photos that have been construed as violations, or that I appear to be doing so in deliberate defiance of previous editorial direction. All the images in question were given to me by the owner or creator with permission to use them, so I thought they were okay to upload. I'm a rookie here on Wikipedia, and don't always "get" the rules, so I didn't understand why the previous images were deleted. I figured I had missed some point or other, and so I tried again with different images, also given to me by the creator. I started to upload another couple of images today, but stopped the process when I saw your note. Please don't ban or block me. I will simply stop trying to upload any images of any sort and leave that to others in the future. Thank you for your patience and understanding. ChriCom (talk)Chricom 18 March 2015

@ChriCom: Hi,
For pictures made by others, the copyright owner (usually the photographer) has to send a permission (see COM:OTRS). For the magazine cover, Nate Butler has to send a permission. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:54, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Foto's Jaap RusEdit

Dear Yann, thank you for your help with the foto's uploading. De fdoto Jaap Rus 1945 is from the album, i.e. the private collection of Jaap Rus himself. It is made in 1945 and the photgraphar can not been find anymore.

The foto Jaap Rus 2014 is mae bij a photographer Mechteld Jansen. She gaves me permission to place the foto in EWikipedia. This is her e-mail (in Ducth) wich say: 'you can use it': Op 17 mrt. 2015 om 10:17 heeft Forum Fotografie - Mechteld Jansen <> het volgende geschreven: Hoi,

Gebruik hem maar, dat is akkoord.. Auteursrechten > je hebt toestemming nodig van de fotograaf anders kun je aangeklaagd worden :-)

The foto 'Jaap Rus voor de kering' is made by a photographer Lex de Meester. We just ask him permission. De newspaper PZC where both foto's were published says the rights are at the photograpfers.

The Canadees insigne, the erepenning and the Officier Orde van O-N: we don't want to place them anymore and theu can be removes form wiki commons.

I hope this all is sufficient. thank you so much for your helpo. Carla Rus (talk) 06:33, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

@Carla Rus: Hi,
Old photos can't be "own work". You have to give more information: who is the photographer, when the picture was taken, and where it was first published, or that it was published without a mention of the author (in that case, it will be in public domain 70 years after publication, i.e. if published in 1945, it will in the public domain on 1st January 2016). Regards, Yann (talk) 11:50, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yann, Mr Rus doesn't know who was the photographer at all. This photo wasn't published anywhere. But if this isn't eno7ugh we have to wait until January '16. We are contacting both photographers of the other photo's for the right CC BY-SA license. Thank you. CarlaCarla Rus (talk) 16:28, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yann, may be the photo Jaap Rus 1945 is not made in 1945 after all, but in December 1944, just after the end of de war in Zeeland in 8 November 1944. We're trying to find out this for sure in the photo-album of my dad Mr Jaap Rus. gr. Carla Rus (talk) 21:00, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yann, I found out indeed that the photo Jaap Rus 1945 actually is made in December 1944. The photo never is published, it is in a private collection. So now it is in the public domain, if I understood you well. So, would you please accept the photo for WikiCommons? Thank you very much for your help. Carla Rus (talk) 14:19, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Requesting that you block a userEdit


I try to help with nominating articles for deletion, and tonight I found that a certain "contributor" has uploaded more files that are almost certainly copyright violations, even though you have already given him a last warning. Here's his talk page: User talk:Northpoint777. He or she seems to have a serious COI with Matt Brouwer, based on the history of the article about one of the subject's albums. It's clearly an effort to promote an album on Wikipedia. Anyway, please check this user's recent contributions on Commons, and hopefully you will decide to block this contributor. Either way, thanks for your attention, and for your hard work. Dontreader (talk) 07:35, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Violations de copyrightEdit

J'ai vu votre avertissement concernant une violation de copyright. Or il n'y a absolument AUCUNE violation de copyrights. Toutes les photos ont été importés avec l'accord de leurs propriétaires et je leur ai demandé d'écrire les mails pour l'OTRS et le photomontage « Sauvez la "Calypso" » a été fait avec une photo de Commons, comme ce montage.
Je me permets par exemple de vous faire remarquer que l'autorisation OTRS pour ce fichier a été envoyé le 12 mars 2015 et que la confirmation n'apparait toujours pas, 10 jours plus tard. Pour la photo du Caribe, le lien vers la page a été envoyé au photographe juste après que j'ai imorté l'image en lui demandant de faire un mail à l'OTRS.
Maintenant, je ne vois pas ce que je peux faire de plus... Envoyé une copie de chacun de mes mails à propos des images "volées" ou me faire bloquer de Wikipédia parce que les autorisations OTRS mettent plusieurs semaines à être confirmés???
Sur ce, bonne soirée. --Lev. Anthony (talk) 16:34, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

@Lev. Anthony: Bonjour,
Désolé pour le retard, mais il y a toujours un délai assez long pour les autorisations OTRS. Il n'est pas rare d'attendre un mois. Pour éviter que les images soient supprimées, ajoutez le modèle {{OTRS pending}} dans le champ "permission" de vos images. Je vais regarder les autorisations en attente dès que possible. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 17:17, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Je me permets de vous faire remarquer que pour l'image du Caribe, les 15 jours de délais n'ont absolument pas été respectés, l'image ayant été importé moins de six heures avant sa suppression. Par contre, j'aimerais savoir comment vous souhaitez que j'explique au photographe le fait qu'il ne trouve pas la photo au lien indiqué. Comme le fait que je suis "stupide" au point de lui envoyer un faux lien ou vous avez une autre idée???
Par contre, je pense que je vais me contenter de quitter les projets de Wikipédia parce que les différents messages que je reçois commence vraiment à m'énerver. Je ne suis pas là pour recevoir des menaces mais pour essayer d'améliorer cette encyclopédie (je me retiens de mettre des adjectifs afin de ne pas être vulgaire). Il suffit de regarder ma page de discussion pour voir les suppressions d'images importé pour la majorité avec autorisation...
Malgré tout, bonne soirée. --Lev. Anthony (talk) 17:40, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
@Lev. Anthony: Cela ne sert à rien de vous énerver. Nous sommes tous volontaires ici. Nous faisons notre possible pour améliorer les projets, chacun avec le temps dont il dispose et les meilleures volontés. Je vous ferais quand même remarquer que vous avez beaucoup d'avertissements pour violations de droits d'auteur sur votre page. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:54, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
@Lev. Anthony: J'ai ajouté une autorisation à deux de vos fichiers, et j'ai renvoyé un mail demandant une autorisation complète. J'ai aussi restauré File:Sauvons la "Calypso".JPG. Pour le reste, je vous demande encore une fois d'être patient. Une vingtaine d'admins sur Commons fait l'essentiel du travail de supervision sur plus de 10.000 fichiers importés chaque jour, dont plus de 1000 sont supprimés pour violation de droits d'auteur ou par manque d'autorisation. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 19:28, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Effectivement, je me suis un peu emballé tout à l’heure et je m’en excuse. J'ai été énervé par le fait qu'on me menace de bloquer mon compte à cause de violations de copyrights qui n'en sont pas en réalité, les demandes OTRS étant en cours.
Pour les violations de copyrights de ma page de discussion, toutes celles datées du 27 septembre 2013 et après n'en sont pas (exceptés les montages et le fichier MV Batillus à Antifer, qui était la photo d'un livre), les demandes ayant été faites aux photographes (j'ai encore les mails dans ma boite électronique), mais je ne voulais pas déranger les photographes avec des demandes OTRS et car je m'étais fait engueulé par uin administrateur du site sur lequel j'avais fait les demandes et qui ne comprenait pas l’intérêt d'illustrer Wikipédia... Comme vous l’avez surement constaté par vous même en me renvoyant le mail, les neuf fichiers menacés de suppression (de File:"Costa Allegra" - Genoa, 1992.jpg à file:"Al-Salam Boccacio 98" - Genoa, 2001.jpg sur ma page de discussion) sont en réalité importés avec autorisation. Pour le fichier du Mardi Gras, j'ai demandé au propriétaire d’envoyer un mail à l’OTRS, mais je ne sais pas si il s'en ai occupé.
Bonne soirée --Lev. Anthony (talk) 22:31, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
@Lev. Anthony: Bonjour,
J'ai répondu à l'auteur pour Mardi Gras, et je lui ai demandé de renvoyer l'autorisation qui n'était pas complète. Comme je vous l'ai dis plus haut, pour toutes les images avec une autorisation en attente, vous devriez ajoutez le modèle {{OTRS pending}} dans le champ "permission" pour être sûr qu'elles ne soient pas supprimées. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 23:06, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Je penserais à ce modèle pour les prochaines fois.
Désolé de vous contredire, mais la personne à qui vous avez répondu est Carlo Martinelli, qui est l'auteur des neuf autres photos. L'auteur du fichier Mardi Gras s'appelle René Beauchamp. Il me semble qu'il n'a pas encore fait de demande OTRS, mais je me trompe peut etre.
Bonne soirée. --Lev. Anthony (talk) 23:23, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Oui, mais j'ai aussi répondu à René Beauchamp. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 23:25, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

En effet, René Beauchamp m'a transféré le mail quelques minutes plus tard.
Par contre, l’utilisateur @Denniss: a supprimé trois de mes fichiers qui étaient en attente d'OTRS et dont l’import était fait avec autorisation de l'auteur. Est-il possible de les restaurer? Il s'agit de ces fichiers :

Merci d'avance. Bonne soirée --Lev. Anthony (talk) 17:12, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Asian University Image uploadsEdit

I don't understand how the images on the page I edited can be copyright violated when they are all from my organization? The University asked me to upload these photos which belong solely to the University itself. Some of the artwork such as the new logo that was uploaded was created by me for the University and belongs solely to the University with approval from the Management heads of the University. So how could it violate copyright?

--AsianU (talk) 02:29, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

@AsianU: Hi,
As Fastily told you here, for all documents previously published such as logos, we required a formal written permission. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:08, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi, So where would I send a formal written request to? Would that have to be from the President or from myself? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AsianU (talk • contribs)
@AsianU: Hi,
The permission should be sent to It has to come from the President of the University or the person in charge of legal matters. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:39, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Vithun RavindranEdit

I got photographer Vithun Ravindran to mail OTRS his consent about using his image (the full image was uploaded as File:RJ Balaji Hiphop Tamizha Adhi.jpg, and it was cropped into File:RJ Balaji Music Academy 2013.jpg), yet the cropped image was deleted while the original remains. Can you please explain what more I could have done to stop the deletion? Kailash29792 (talk) 09:18, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Right, I deleted the other one too. If you have a permission, please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:22, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
You did not get the point. The photographer has mailed OTRS his consent to use all the images on his website, the mail follows this format. So, as an OTRS member, please find the mail, approve it and restore the images. Kailash29792 (talk) 09:48, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Answered, see ticket:2014022510017601 and ticket:2015031610020585. Yann (talk) 21:04, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Which account do I log in with? My Wiki_edia account is not being accepted there. Kailash29792 (talk) 09:36, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
@Kailash29792: The tickets there are only available to OTRS volunteers. Sorry if I was not clear. You should have got a a mail. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:07, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

File:Hezbollah Bandera.jpgEdit

You delete this image. Why Is That? But this is also a flag like that..--samral talk 09:31, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

@Samral: Hi,
The flag of Hamas is too simple to get a copyright (only text), while this flag is complex. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:34, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

File:Authorities CPS 2012.jpgEdit

Hi Yann, please restore that file. All of the portraits used on it are my own work. Diego Grez return fire 19:44, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

@Diego Grez: Hi,
This is a montage and there is no source for this file. So please either upload the original images with EXIF data, or send a permission through COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:20, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Photo Paul ZinsliEdit

Bonjour Yann, avant d'importer la photo du Pr Zinsli sur wikimedia commons, pouvez-vous me dire à partir du mail que je viens d'envoyer à <> si c'est OK.

Merci d'avance. Bonne soirée, --Amage9 (talk) 17:06, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

problème de licence/visuels Henry Déziré (suite)Edit

Bonsoir Vous m'avez déjà aidée, et je fais donc appel à vous à nouveau pour la suite de la résolution des problèmes de licence des visuels que je voudrais inclure dans la page Wikipedia écrite sur mon grand-père Henry Déziré. Je ne sais pas quel est le meilleur moyen de vous contacter, alors en plus du mail que j'ai écrit (en réponse au vôtre) je copie le mail ici: Bonsoir, Je crois avoir fait tout ce qui était dans mes capacités: - j'ai modifié les fiches de photos en m'inspirant du modèle que vous m'avez donné (Tête de Bretonne au ruban rouge): dates, auteurs, categories, types de licence, quand je le savais - j'ai contacté les musées et le photographe, et ai obtenu des réponses que je vous joins en pj Voici donc un envoi accompagné de - un document 3 pages avec la liste des images et les réponses obtenues en ce qui concerne les droits - l'autorisation du Musée du Faouët (M. le Maire du Faouët) - l'autorisation du musée de Guéret (Mme Guinois) - la réponse de Mme Favreau pour les Musées de La Rochelle - l'autorisation du musée de Saint Etienne Métropole - qui se trompe dans le prénom, puisque le prénom de mon grand-père est Henry et non André! - l'autorisation du Musée de Saint Quentin En espérant que tout sera en ordre pour obtenir les tickets et le droit d'utiliser les photos sur Wikimedia et Wikipedia. Vous me direz aussi si j'ai autre chose à faire. Merci encore de votre précieuse aide

Les pièces jointes accompagnent le mail, je ne peux pas les joindre ici…

Une dernière chose: pour les licences, j'ai vu qu'il y avait deux cas: un cas avec {{cc-by-sa-4.0-heirs}} que vous avez utilisé pour le tableau du musée de La Rochelle, et un cas avec self en plus. Pouvez-vous me dire la différence?

Je renouvelle mes remerciements en tout cas--Araynaudreversat (talk) 22:03, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

@Araynaudreversat: Bonjour,
J'ai ajouté l'autorisation sur toutes les pages de description, exceptée File:Henry Déziré, Port de la Rochelle (vers 1940), Musée d'Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne Métropole.jpg, car le musée demande que l'on note "(c) Tous droits réservés", ce qui et incompatible avec une licence libre. Je vous répondrais par mail pour les détails et les suites possibles sur ce cas.
J'aime particulièrement File:Henry Déziré, Tête de Bretonne au ruban rouge (avant 1913), Musées d'Art et d'Histoire de La Rochelle, cliché Max Roy.jpg, et la photo est d'excellente qualité, aussi je l'ai proposée comme image remarquable.
Merci d'avoir importé ces images et d'enrichir Wikimedia Commons. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 13:09, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Un Immense MERCI pour votre rapidité et votre efficacité. Je suis vraiment ravie, et vais ajouter les photos à l'article, sauf effectivement celle du musée de Saint Etienne: ce n'est pas grave, d'ailleurs, car j'ai la photo d'un autre tableau (de ma collection) à mettre à la place! --Araynaudreversat (talk) 13:41, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Document du 1er février 1914Edit

Bonjour Yann, j'ai une photocopie de la Revue des eaux et forêts du 1er février 1914 pages 97 à 99. je ne retrouve pas l'originale sur internet (Gallica BNF, Google...), puis-je mettre ces pages sur wikimedia commons?

Je ne sais pas si vous avez une réponse pour Paul Zinsli, je crois que je vais reprendre votre mail en allemand pour Barbara (Suisse allemande) qui est l'héritière du photographe. Merci d'avance, --Amage9 (talk) 15:55, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@Amage9: Bonjour,
Ça dépend. L'éditeur de cette revue était Lucien Laveur en 1911 [3]. Est-il mort depuis plus de 70 ans ? Les articles signés sont sous droits d'auteur jusqu'à 70 ans après la mort de l'auteur. Pour les autres, 70 ans après publication, donc OK.
A noter que Gallica donne des infos fausses. Le rédacteur en chef en 1911 ne pouvait pas ête Aristide Frézard, celui-ci étant mort en 1862 [4].
Pour les recherches complexes de ce type, vous pouvez demander à Hélène Sarrazin. C'est une pro. ;oD Cordialement, Yann (talk) 16:26, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Merci pour cette analyse et axes de recherche.

Supression de photosEdit

Salut Yann, concernant Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_Tinss, il semblerait que certaines des photos aient été supprimées de nouveau malgré la réception du ticket OTRS. Peux-tu m'éclairer sur la raison? Tinss (talk) 22:19, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@Tinss: Bonjour,
Jim pense que tu ne possèdes pas les droits sur ces images, vu que tu ne connais pas le nom des photographes. Formellement, les droits ne peuvent se transférer que par un accord écrit. Désolé. Tu peux lui répondre en français ici, Google traduira. L'une est acceptable, car dans le domaine public au Canada par l'âge. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 22:40, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

File:İçərişəhər DTMQİ icazə vərəq 2.jpg and File:İçərişəhər DTMQİ icazə vərəq 1.jpg pictures belong to me. Picture 2 is the second part of the first letter. These letters have been sent to me by "İçərişəhər" rule is allowed.--samral talk 13:16, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

@Samral: Hi,
The pictures belong to you, but the copyright belongs to İçərişəhər. We need a permission from him/her. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Also I am not sure this is in COM:SCOPE. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:24, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Letter to be sent to me deyil means that its copyrights belong to me? My name goes even contains.--samral talk 13:31, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

It doesn't matter what the letter contains. The copyright always belongs to the person who wrote it. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:40, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
