File:Volovjareber-zveri.jpg

I think that the permission given for File:Volovjareber-zveri.jpg is actually too restrictive for Commons. It is given for usage in the Slovene Wikipedia in the article Volovja reber under an unspecified Creative Commons article. What's your opinion? --Eleassar (t/p) 09:55, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Agreed - we don't accept "for Wikipedia" licenses, which is what this appears to be. Nominated for deletion. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 12:40, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, it seems that this kind of licensing is actually permissible (see e.g. [1]). --Eleassar (t/p) 13:45, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Since these are all on commons, we cannot help you hewe as this is the English Wikipedia. For OTRS permission we would await the OTRS volunteer to confirm the permission and ask for the restore. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 12:28, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
I've copied the above list (and added bullet points to the URLs) from en:w:WP:REFUND, which couldn't deal with them because it's not an OTRS noticeboard. Nyttend (talk) 19:28, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Transferred images from Wikivoyage

I have e-mailed to OTRS the evidence of licensing permission from the South African Government Printers for several images originally uploaded to Wikitravel Shared and transferred to Wikivoyage Shared, now transferred by bot to Commons. There are two forwarded messages from peter.southwood@telkomsa.net with the relevant attachments dated today, and referring to "Diving the Cape Peninsula and False Bay". Is this sufficient, or is there something else I should do to facilitate the process? Cheers, · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 06:06, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

The tickets are #2013010810001789 and #2013010810001798. I examined the first one briefly and it looks like everything is in order. If you can give me the image locations on Commons, I'll sort the tagging out later. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 12:44, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
OK, I will get them and list here. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 13:43, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
  • The relevant images are listed in galleries under the appropriate photo identification from the authorisation. There are a few images which appear to not yet have been copied over, and are still on the waiting list.

OK, since there are quite a few of those and more coming, it might be easiest to create a template (like, for example, Template:AnthonyNoble) that states where the images are from, the applicable license, and the OTRS verification. If you can create the appropriate template(s) and link to them from here, I'll mark them as {{permissionOTRS}}. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 15:48, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I may be misunderstanding your suggestion, but all the images visible above are already on commons, complete, as far as I understand it, with everything except the OTRS tags. If you click on any of the images you will open the file in Commons, which already includes licence, source, author, etc. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 17:00, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
You mentioned above that "There are a few images which appear to not yet have been copied over, and are still on the waiting list." The template I suggested could be added to those images once they're up without having to wait for an OTRS agent. The suggestion is still valid (imo) even if all the images are on Commons already, because it means less work if something needs to be modified in future, but it's only a suggestion. :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 17:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't mind drafting a template, particularly if the result is to save effort or make future transfers easier, but I am not entirely sure of what must be included in the template, or how it would be applied to the files. I will do a little research and see what I can find. If you know of any help pages or other examples which may clarify, please let me know.
Also, do I need to include two permission templates to cover the two tickets? Cheers, · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 05:21, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I have drafted a template. I have interpolated, extrapolated and applied wild-assed guesses as design technique, so please take a look and see if it is useable. It still needs the OTRS template/s to be filled in which is beyond my authority if I understand the policy correctly. Feel free to tweak it yourself or let me know what changes are required. Cheers, · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 05:57, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I will start to insert the template in the files. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 06:16, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Template added to all applicable files already copied to Commons. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 07:44, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
That looks fine to me. I've merged the two emails into one ticket, which is #2013010810001798, and noted that on the template you created. You just need to add that template to any future uploads covered by that release (and if anybody queries you adding the template yourself, point them to this thread or to my talk page). I'll confirm by email through OTRS. Also, pardon me for editing your post; I just put nowiki tags round the gallery t make this noticeboard a little easier to navigate.

Romanian photos

Reading the previous deletion request, I get the impression that the permission only is for the photos and not for the architecture. Is this correct? The building is from 1938, so it is quite possible that one or both of the architects wasn't already dead by 1943. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:17, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

These must not be in the Commons or permissions queues - I don't have access. Leaving a note at the otrswiki:Cafe. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 15:04, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

The ticket was never closed (we got the email, but no one ever responded to it), I've done that now. It requires attribution as described in the template, but applies only to the photos, not to the underlying architecture. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 14:33, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Yungas road.jpg

George23820 claims that an e-mail containing details of the permission for this file has been sent to OTRS. This seems unlikely given that the file was obtained through Google, given that he thinks that Google is the author of the photo, and given that he thinks that he is the copyright holder.

Ticket was originally used for photos from photographer's personal website lukaszwojcik.com like File:Jarosław_Macionczyk,_2007.JPG. echodnia.eu is not a personal website and radomiak.radom.pl was a football club official website.--Oleola (talk) 20:28, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

OTRS template missing

Is there any template which can be used, for example, in files like this File:PTvoyage34new.jpg or this File:Kelmes.jpg, which has OTRS ticket number, but without template. If there is not, it think that this template should be made, so OTRS volunteers can insert template afterwards. --Smooth_O (talk) 13:51, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean? A template for non-OTRS users to use when adding a ticket number? Stifle (talk) 12:13, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
No, just a tamplate that will be used by non-OTRS users to notify OTRS users that OTSR template is missing. --Smooth_O (talk) 15:24, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Feel free to convert the OTRS number into a template yourself. Templates aren't magic, they won't burn your hands when you add them if you aren't an OTRS volunteer. The number is the important part, the template is just formatting.--GRuban (talk) 22:20, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
@Smooth O: Will do it later today when I have the time. Trijnsteltalk 10:59, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

OTRS claims by User:Brooks53

I believe this user is just uploading random images, claiming to have sent an OTRS ticket with the proper permissions.

Please check the uploader-added ticket for File:Jessie.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 10:20, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Don't waste your time, people. Just like on File:Re6-ada-wong.jpg, Addonexus is obviously just abusing the {{PermissionOTRS}} tag to stall the inevitable deletion. A quick file search shows that the ticket's legitimate use is on files uploaded by Georges Biard, e.g. File:Roschdy Zem Césars.jpg, File:Kylie Minogue Cannes.jpg, File:Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt Cannes.jpg.

File:Tsitsernakaberd memorial.jpg

The {{PermissionOTRS}} tag was added by Movses, who is apparently not an OTRS agent. Was the ticket approved? Note that since Armenia has no freedom of panorama, it would have to include permission from the architects/artists who created the monument to be valid.

The file is in Russian and appears to cover http://photo-armenia.com, however, the site seems to have numerous contributors, so someone will need to contact the editor of the website via http://photo-armenia.com/en/photographers/vigen_hakhverdyan.html and verify if the release under GFDL and CC-BY-SA-3.0 covers all photographers on the site, or only his works. In any case, there is no FOP in Armenia, so this file will likely need to go to DR. russavia (talk) 11:50, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Both ID's are incorrect and I cannot find any tickets related to the images. I do not seem to have access to many queues on OTRS, so the fact that I can not find it often does not mean much.

Not all tickets with "Error: No TicketID is given!" are false, see for example Category:Items with incorrect OTRS ticket ID.

Need some help advising someone about dealing with OTRS

User:BEDownes claims to be the heir of the works of Jerome and Ethel Myers. He's expressed his wish to make the work available entirely for free, but it seems like he needs to be informed that work after 1923 is not PD, and of how to make sure permission is given. I'd like to handle this as well as possible because I think these are valuable additions to Commons. What does the uploader have to do with regards to OTRS to make sure these images are shared? Do they need their lawyer to sign off on it? How can they prove that they own the artworks? Thanks, moogsi (blah) 13:36, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

If User:BEDownes is a heir of Jerome and Ethel Myers and inherited their copyrights, than he/she can use {{PD-heir}} or (s)he can also sent email to OTRS, with text here and (s)he can choose any license (s)he wants, preferably {{PD-heir}}. I do not think (s)he needs a layer to sign anything, but it might make sense for him/her to verify with the layer that he/she is the "sole owner of the exclusive copyright" and if he/she have some documents to that effect they can be sent over as well. --Jarekt (talk) 15:33, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

How to use a written (ON PAPER) permission to use photos taken by another person

I went to the photographer's house. He gave me files of pictures (of an insect and of frogs) that he took - provided them on CD for me. He is in 80's. He gave verbal permission to put pictures on Wikimedia. One of the pictures will be of use immediately in educational material in WA State, USA. Others could be used this way. I understand from good answers I received on the Commons Helpboard that I will need to return to get WRITTEN permission from the photographer. I was also told I can use the same release from the photographer for all four pictures that I plan to send to Wikimedia Commons.

My question is HOW TO SEND his permission? What form is acceptable? E-mail from photographer not an option. I could take a digital photo of a signed form and attach to email from me Or Scan and send scan attached to email from me.

Also – when would I send this? and how? Can I do so when I myself upload the picture and select license. Thank you. RMKerr17 (talk) 20:55, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

While I am not on OTRS, in a similar situation I let the licensor manually sign a prepared declaration of permission, scanned it and emailed to to OTRS. --Túrelio (talk) 21:03, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Ticket: 2013032010010886

This ticket was the basis for closing a DR and retaining File:Jules Benoit-Lévy. "Pelant des pommes de terre".JPG. The OTRS ticket merely indicates that the uploader purchased a copy of the painting on Ebay (not even the actual painting!) and thus believes he also has the copyrights (of course, something completely separate from mere property rights). Owning a DVD, for example, does not allow one to license the film thereon. I'd like a second opinion, as it seems like poor judgement to me. Jules Benoit-Lévy died in 1952 and, accordingly, his work would not be PD in France (pma + 70) until 2022. Unless we had a document that indicates Benoit-Lévy or his heirs conveyed copyrights to the uploader, the ticket is meaningless. Эlcobbola talk 13:39, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Although the ticket contains a valid version of the well known permission statement, I second the opinion that it only applies to the photograph, not to the shown artwork. I will reopen the ticket. --Krd 13:49, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

This file has been deleted twice before. The first time it was uploaded by JasonBolton, and the second time, it was uploaded by Breakingbutler. It's now been recreated again – this time with an OTRS tag. Supposedly, it's published under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license, which requires attribution of the author, but whoever provided the permission supposedly doesn't know who the author is, even though the metadata clearly states that the author is Rob Kim. Why would whoever gave the supposed permission be authorized to do so if they don't even know who took the photo? LX (talk, contribs) 21:44, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Ticket #2009071010008766 (File:Constitutional Monument w-Reagan 001.jpg)

The file File:Constitutional Monument w-Reagan 001.jpg has a template indicating that permission is recorded in OTRS ticket #2009071010008766. However, the "Description" field of the template reads as follows:

Copyright Infringement !!
You do not have the rights to use this image..
I Brett-Livingstone Strong challenge your right to use my image without my permission I demand you remove this image immediately. To keep the image in use without my express permission will allow me to pursue my legal remedies and rights against you for copyright infringement!!

Could an OTRS clerk please check the ticket to confirm permission? If permission has been granted, please remove this copyvio notice from the image. If no permission has been granted, please delete the image, or tag it for deletion, as a copyright violation.

(I note that en:Brett-Livingstone Strong is the sculptor who created the monument depicted in this photograph. The monument's Wikipedia article implies that the reproduction rights to the monument rest with a non-profit foundation; I don't know whether this includes photographs or whether freedom of panorama applies. I also do not know whether or not Strong is the photographer of this image, or whether he is one of the people depicted in the photograph.) —Psychonaut (talk) 08:27, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

I checked the ticket. The CC release is by somebody at "spiritoffreedomtour.org", and is apparently meant to apply to the photograph. As there is no FOP for sculptures in the US, the release can't cover the copyright in the sculpture. However, the part of the sculpture that's shown could possibly be de minimis, as the other main subject of the image is Reagan. Recommend settling this in a deletion discussion.

Kiasma-images

Hi, there was multiple images uploaded as part of Kiasma wikimaraton at 1.–2.2.2013 and right to use images in commons was specifically checked. At 20-21.3. images were deleted because the bad or missing OTRS permit. Based on what user:Pitke said that there were something wrong with the first OTRS-permit which they sent and they sent fixed one after that. (see the discussion here) Full list of images is below and i think that they tried to send one OTRS permission mail which covered those images

However in my point of view the OTRS is black box and i don't know what failed so i would like to ask

  1. What failed with the OTRS permissions for those images (were permission bad or there weren't any OTRS permission which matched to those pictures etc) ?
  2. Is it possible that the OTRS permission for those images is still unprocessed? If so how backlogged the OTRS is?

IDF ticket valid? Ticket#: 2012111510019418

I am not sure if the ticket # 2012111510019418 is valid.

About 1000 images are uploaded with this ticket.

Basically the idf is asked if wikimedia can use the images with the cc-by-sa 3.0 license. idf says:

Permission is granted. You can use all the photos in our Flickr account in Wikipedia.

The big problem here is that it says: in wikipedia.

then the person is unsure if thats enough to import 1000 images and ask for a confirmation: We would like to clarify we have used the CC-BY-SA-3.0 license and would like to get a confirmation this permission you have grated us applies worldwide.

the answer then is:

yes you can use it.

Again idf says you can use it. There is no clear statement that all images on their flickr account are now cc-by-sa 3.0 although they specifically use the Noncommercial tag on flickr. Shouldn't we have asked them to change the flickr license from NC to C? Because since all the images from flickr have been imported that is what effectively has happened to their images. Amada44  talk to me 10:34, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for asking.

I checked the ticket and it grants the permission to use all the pictures in the IDF Flickr account. The license status on Flickr is not important for usage on wikipedia. For Instance pictures that were available under free license (like CC-BY-SA) for some time can still be used in Wikipedia if the status on Flickr is change to all rights reserved after upload to wikipedia. Or pictures that are on flickr only available under all rights reserved can be usable on wikipedia if we have a written permission that the pictures can be used under CC-BY-SA from the owner. And here we have the statement that they can be used. So permission was granted.

Best regards --Neozoon (talk) 22:07, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

But "you can use them" is not the same as "anyone can use them under this specific license." From what Amada44 is quoting above, it really seems like they're actively avoiding what's actually being asked in order to answer a different question. For such a recent ticket, there's really no excuse not to use our standard consent form. LX (talk, contribs) 08:58, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
I agree. We need them to be more explicit that CC-By-SA is what they intended and that they understand it. That could be in the form of a clearer email (preferably using the boilerplate) or by changing the license on Flickr. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 19:26, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Glad to see that other share my opinion. Its really a very, very weak ticket. So should we ask them to confirm with the standard consent form? Amada44  talk to me 21:36, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
That sounds like a good idea. I'll add a note to the ticket asking for that confirmation. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 11:02, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Just to make sure I was clear, the note is to the person who handled the ticket on OTRS asking him to reopen the ticket. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 11:16, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
I would like to clarify the matter. I'm the agent who created and handled the ticket. The Idf can't change the flickr photostream license due to political issues in Israel, hence, then have given a written permission that states it can be used. The unformal way of reply is because I know the guy who answered. I see no reason to go over the whole process again to get an answer that doesn't contain the word "you", especially after a re-clarification mail I sent. I will obey to any decision that would be taken, but this isn't a way to end a discussion. matanya talk 18:08, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
If you read the entire dialogue you see the answer was "yes" by the IDF. This should be enough, a specially when it is backed by a trusted and well-reputation user like Matanya. MathKnight 18:27, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
He said yes, you can use it on wikipedia and that is just not good enough. Also: Could you clarify how they can not change the flickr photo stream license due to political issues? And at the same time they give a carte blanche to a different organization to publish all their images as cc-by-sa? How is that possible? And that Matanya is well-reputation has nothing to do with the fact that this is a really weak ticket. Also: whats the big deal to get them to fill out the standard release form? Amada44  talk to me 20:26, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done ticket is closed in OTRS --Neozoon (talk) 21:12, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Closed with any further clarification, or just closed? I'm sorry, but a ticket that doesn't contain (1) an assertion that the correspondent is authorised to issue a valid license and (2) an acknowledgement of the actual license and its terms as opposed to just a permission to use is not a valid ticket and should not be accepted by OTRS volunteers, regardless of whether or not they're buddies with the correspondent. And permissions that contradict licensing statements elsewhere should be particularly clear about this. There's no point in requiring OTRS permission if all it does is lower the standards and obscure weaknesses. LX (talk, contribs) 22:14, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
someone opend the ticket (because of this discussion) and Neozoon just cloesed it again. If nothing moves here I'll place a DR on the images. Amada44  talk to me 16:31, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
Not True. The ticket had been reopened in OTRS and an active OTRS agent from Israel closed it. I did report on the fact that the ticket is closed in the ticketsystem and it still is. --Neozoon (talk) 22:52, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Donato Marquez A.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: On a new message on OTRS, uploader affirms it is a profesional photograph. She also affirms that the photo studio that took the photograph belonged to Donato Márquez himself, and so the copyright of the photopraph belongs to the uploaders father and Márquez's heir, who consent to publish it on Commons under the selected free license. — mantis [religiosa] — 04:54, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Review of Ticket request

Can someone check the ticket on File:Dr Karl P. N. Shuker and Smilodon Skull.jpg to see if it includes proper release information for the photographer? It appears as if the subject was the one that gave permission, but appears to be a professional studio image, whereas the subject wouldn't normally hold the copyright.. thought it warranted a double-check in case something was overlooked. — raeky (talk | edits) 04:12, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

The ticket came from a person who states that Dr. Shuker gave him permission to use his image. This is not a proper releasea information, because it neither reflects its source nor that the copyright holder really authorized it. — mantis [religiosa] — 18:33, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Then what tag should be put on it? No permission since, with a link to this discussion? — raeky (talk | edits) 02:47, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
The ticket is very old. If the uploader is still active, a no permission since would be fine. If not, I think it is better to start a deletion request. — mantis [religiosa] — 16:23, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
The actual subject of the photograph is not inactive, and is involved at wikipedia, I'll direct him to this thread. — raeky (talk | edits) 18:21, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Comprobación de ticket 2013021510007875

Buen día. ¿Podrían comprobar el ticket 2013021510007875 y en particular si la autorización se refiere a la fotografía o a las obras pictóricas? El autor de las pinturas falleció en 1959 por lo que las pinturas no están en dominio público según la legislación de México. Además, según se ha indicado aquí, los cuadros tienen actualmente distintos propietarios por lo que probablemente no pueden ser agrupados bajo un mismo ticket.

Archivos: File:Niña con pandero.jpg, File:Dando la limosna.jpg,File:Danza de los negritos.JPG,File:La Indita.jpg,File:El Vainillal.jpg,File:Inditas en su casa.JPG, File:Orando en el camino.jpg, File:Maldita Guerra.jpg.

Muchas gracias. --Marco Regueira (talk) 22:32, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

La autorización se refiere a ambas. Las pinturas pertenecen por herencia a quien las subió y las fotografías son también suyas. — mantis [religiosa] — 16:49, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Solo agregar que la información contradictoria referente a los múltiples propietarios de los cuadros proviene del mismo autor que el ticket, y que esta información ha sido proporcionada libremente y sin haberle sido requerida antes de encontrarse con dificultades al subir las fotos a Commons, de ahí la suspicacia. Por lo demás, yo estoy satisfecho si aquí ya lo estáis. Saludos. --Marco Regueira (talk) 11:39, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Old templates with wrong parameters

I recently fixed {{PermissionOTRS}} so it detects cases when bad or no parameters are being passed. The template automatically adds:

There were only ~4 hundred files with some issues (out of 360k), and I have already corrected few hundred cases of obvious typos. However, there are still some images to check. Most of them seems to provide ticketID instead of ticketNumber. For those we can either look up ticketNumber or use "ticket" parameter. I would appreciate some help fixing those. --Jarekt (talk) 17:41, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Teresa Sousa

The user INeverCry marked for deletion my mother's (Teresa Sousa) works pictures and they were deleted because there were no permission. I sent the permission almost a month ago (on the 22nd January) to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org and I got no answer. The pictures are new, as the works were never realesed in the internet, so there are no links. My mother died in 1962 and her work is unknown nowadays, despite the prizes she won and that are described in the wikipedia page I wrote for her.

File:Chongqing Baishatuo Bridge.jpg

Recently I found a picture and want to upload to Wikimedia Commons. So I contacted the author and told him something about the OTRS system. However, he said he had directly sent an e-mail to the OTRS foundation and I don't know what's in the mail. I also don't know if he has uploaded the photo to Wikimedia Commons. The e-mail may contain permission about a railway bridge picture which was taken in Chongqing. The photo should be in this page: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_4bc502c60102dxn6.html.

Hallo, ich bereite zur Zeit einen Artikel über den Architekten Camillo Günther (1881-1958) vor. Von seiner Nichte wurden mir einige Entwurfsskizzen zur Verfügung gestellt.

Hi! File:Naiara Moraes.jpg obtained OTRS permission at 20.06.2011, but at 16.10.2011 the original uploader uploaded a completely new version, which might be out of context of ticket 2011061910009246.

The OTRS note was created on "06/19/2011 23:24:38". It has not been updated to reflect the later upload. I think the best solution is that I reply to the ticket requesting that the author extend the permission to the new image. I will do that now.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:04, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

I have uploaded the pictures Svenska syndabockar.jpg, Det sista vittnet.jpg, Kaj med barnbarn.jpg, Vrede mot gudarna.jpg, Jämlikhet.jpg and Katharsis.jpg. Permission was granted by the copyright owner in an email on 14 November 2012. A response was received with the ticket number provided above. Nevertheless, texts have been posted in connection with the pictures, stating that permission has not been granted. Could you please help me resolve this issue? Artfreak4567 (talk) 04:02, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Artfreak4567, the permission email could not be processed at the time it was sent since the agent dealing with it was unclear as to whether these files have already been uploaded to Commons and, if so, under which name. Now that we know the names, I have tagged the images accordingly, removing the old {OTRS pending} template that generated these notices. Note that I could not find http://www.andersson-markus.se/runor.html, http://www.andersson-markus.se/Stureplan.html and http://www.andersson-markus.se/four.html on Commons (these were also mentioned in the email); if you should decide to upload these, please leave a note here or on my talk page. Thank you, and apologies for the late reply you got here on this page. — Pajz (talk) 23:50, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum has changed their Flickr licenses to CC-BY-NC-SA. It's been requested that the OTRS ticket be explained at the Village Pump (see link above) for those of us who've uploaded WEF images. A link to the ticket, provided at {{WEF}}, is here: link.

Проблемы при получении номера OTRS для работ, размещённых на Flickr

Здравствуйте. Извините что пишу на русском так как не хватает знаний английского для полноценного объяснения :-( Проблема в следующем: есть David Osborn, размещающий свои фотографии на авиационную тематику на Flickr и Panoramio (в общей сложности более 20 тысяч фото и коллекция постоянно растёт). Я три месяца (а точнее с 25 декабря 2012 года) переписывался с ним что бы он дал добро на публикацию своих работ. В результате он написал таки письмо 14 или 15 марта (типовое по образцу из http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Declaration_of_consent_for_all_enquiries) на permissions-commons @ wikimedia.org А в ответ агент OTRS Stephen Philbrick ответил следующее:

David

As explained at <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Flickr_files>, images

from Flickr can be used on Wikimedia Commons without the need for email verification of permission. All that's needed is to follow these two steps:

1. Choose a compatible license on Flickr: Ask the Flickr user to place his/her

image under one of the two licenses that Wikimedia Commons accepts, that is to say Creative Commons Attribution and Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike.

To edit a license, the owner of the image should sign in and go to the image in

question, then under Additional Information, the first line will read "All rights reserved" or "some rights reserved". The owner will see a link (edit) next to this, and should click the link and choose the "Attribution Creative Commons" or "Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons" option, then click Save.

2. Upload the image to Wikimedia Commons: Once the image has been placed under a

valid license, go to <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Upload> or click the Upload file link on any page on Commons. Choose the second option ("someone else's work from Flickr") and complete the required details. There's more information and help about uploading images at <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Upload>.

Please make sure you enter the link to the image on Flickr in the "original

source" field, and choose the appropriate license from the licensing drop-down.

Once the file has been uploaded, it will be placed in a queue for administrators

and trusted users to review and verify that it is correctly tagged and licensed.

If the image is already uploaded, you should add the tag {{flickrreview}} to the

image description page which will add it to the review queue.

As we are unable to verify the authenticity of Flickrmails or to connect an email

address to a Flickr account, we cannot validate permissions for images from Flickr outside of this process.


Yours sincerely,
Stephen Philbrick

Обратите вникание на последний абзац, в котором говориться о невозможности проверки. Но при этом вот здесь: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Flickr_files#Lower_quality_images пишут что таки сие возможно...
Я сейчас даже не знаю что делать. Хозяин коллекции отказывается изменять лицензию на фотохостингах, но готов предоставить свои работы под свободной лицензией (CC-BY-SA 3.0) на commons. А самое главное что я недопонимаю где именно и в чём проблема (всё таки я не так силён в английском как хотелось бы). Подскажите, пожалуйста, варианты решения этой проблемы. --ze-dan (talk) 17:48, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Little known fact: there is content above this section!

While I'm usually happy with the attention new questions get on this page, there is a significant lack of follow-up when it comes to threads that are three or more headings above the bottom of the page. OTRS volunteers, please use your watchlists and please don't ignore edits to earlier sections. I've repeatedly asked for responses in the following threads above:

Any progress on "Dream Chaser and the International Space Station.jpg" and other images uploaded by "DreamChaser Media"?

This is continuing the conversation started here that hadn't received a response since October 2012. The images were uploaded by an "SNC authorized communications team member" so I'm trying to get those files restored but I feel like I'm talking to a wall here.--Craigboy (talk) 07:44, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Craigbox, I'm sorry to hear that. As far as I can see, the reply first erroneously sent out to you on Aug. 18 was re-sent to the intended recipient on Aug. 27, but unfortunately I cannot find a reply from him in our system. Best wishes, — Pajz (talk) 22:54, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
I've just looked into this in some detail. I'll give the sequence of events so it's clear: DreamChaser Media uploads a series of images to Commons, tagging them as CC-Cy-SA, but neglected to specify (and authenticate) that he worked for the Sierra Nevada Corporation, who own the copyright. Attempts were made at authentication, but the images were deleted. In the meantime, somebody from the Sierra Nevada Corporation (I won't say any more on a public noticeboard because OTRS tickets are confidential) emailed Craigboy, who forwarded the message to OTRS, stating that DreamChaser Media is "an SNC authorized communications team member". This isn't perfect, but I would say it's clear enough that we can use common sense to put two and two (DreamChaser Media's CC-By-SA tag + the company's confirmation that he is acting on their behalf) together to make four (the company agrees to the CC-By-SA license). As such, I propose to undelete the images, with the exception of the logos (as I suspect these were meant for Wikipedia as fair use), unless somebody thinks I've made a mistake. I'll leave the thread open a day or so for any objections. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 12:38, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I've restored the three files I could find that weren't logos and were sourced to the Sierra Nevada Corporation. There are two other files from elsewhere that I haven't restored because they need more information about their origin and copyright status.

File:Cavalier jockey.jpg

Is the OTRS ticket for this image only for the image, or does it also include the depicted 3D artwork? Kelly (talk) 08:32, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

No idea. The ticket says: "I hereby assert that I am the creator and/or sole owner of the exclusive copyright of WORK " File:Cavalier jockey.jpg ...... --Jarekt (talk) 12:27, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
To be on the safe side, we should probably assume that it only refers to the photograph (Commons:Precautionary principle etc.), as will typically be the case with image material extracted from ebay; whether the depicted objects attracts protection would hence need to be discussed. — Pajz (talk) 22:34, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Could someone please check whether the above linked ticket for image File:Denise Milani training ground by megaween.jpg was issued simply by the deviantart user "megaween"[4], who seems to have created this derivative image out of an original photography, or whether it also mentions a permission from the author of the said original photography[5]. --Túrelio (talk) 09:28, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

The permission was issued by someone with live.com.mx email account. No mention of the original image. --Jarekt (talk) 12:34, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Image:Killbot.jpg and Image:J_Devil_(Jonathan_Davis).jpg

I found out these files were deleted while reviewing my watchlist for the Killbot and Jonathan Davis pages on wikipedia. No message was left on my Talk Page here at the Commons and no explanation of why the files were up for deletion in the first place. Permission was sent to OTRS and recieved by OTRS as well as approved by OTRS months ago so I don't understand why the files were deleted at least as of 26 Mar 2013. I have searched the deletion log and can't seem to find information on the file and why it was deleted. A template was not left on the Talk Page of the image nor my Talk Page on the circumstances of the deletion. The only thing I can find is this information left on the wikipedia pages for Killbot and Jonathan Davis "Removing "Killbot.jpg", it has been deleted from Commons by HJ Mitchell because: OTRS: Unaccepted or insufficient permission for use on Commons". Again, these images were cleared months ago and no notifications were made to let me know something changed in your policies that these permissions were pulled. The permissions came from Killbot and Jonathan Davis' management who have authorized me to keep the images at wikipedia updated for all of their projects. What more do you need to assure these files are undeleted and that this doesn't happen again in the future? Nbcwd (talk) 13:18, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

According to Special:PermanentLink/93310533#File:J Devil (Jonathan Davis).jpg and File:Killbot.jpg Permissions, it seems that you may have obtained permission from the wrong person, or credited the wrong person for making the works. Someone would have to check both the OTRS tickets and that discussion to confirm whether the permission is sufficient and whether it comes from the right person. --Stefan4 (talk) 13:27, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Prospect Park is Korn, Killbot, and Jonathan Davis' management and they own both photos. There is no one else to get permission from. That is the top of the line for permissions on releases of photos or even information relating to Killbot of Jonathan Davis or Korn. They own the copyright and gave me permission to release them to Wikipedia. Can you please check and see what the problem is so it can be resolved since I don't have access to the OTRS tickets or discussions? Who is the "authority" on permissions? Since the person that gave permission is the absolute top of the line short of Jonathan Davis himself, which has also granted me permission to post these photos for him, what other routes are there? Nbcwd (talk) 00:45, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Sorry this came out of the blue. There's some background a Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard/archive/2012#File:J Devil (Jonathan Davis).jpg and File:Killbot.jpg Permissions. Perhaps you could provide some clarification, then we can look at undeletion. First, where did these images come from—who made them, and who own the copyright to them? Second, what does "Photo/Art by Fadewood Studios/Terrance W. Blanton/Devin Taylor" mean—are they the copyright holders? None of them are the people who emailed OTRS. Third, whoever the copyright holder is, do they understand that the license tag you selected means that anybody can use that image for any purpose whatsoever (including commercial use)? Or to put it another way, they understand that they're not giving permission exclusively for Wikipedia, but for anyone. So I'm rather confused, but if you can answer those questions, I'll hopefully be much less confused and we can look at undeleting the images. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 12:07, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Hello HJ! Thanks so much for getting back to me! Ok, I think I can clarify all of this. Fadewood Studios/Tarrance Blanton/Devin Taylor are the photographers for the J Devil and Killbot images but the copyright owners are Killbot and J Devil (Jonathan Davis). They contracted Fadewook Studios for the images but they own them in full. Their management, Prospect Park, are the releasing agents and have given me releasing authority for photos of Korn, Killbot, J Devil, and Jonathan Davis to put up for Wikipedia. Yes, they understand that this license means that it is free to use anywhere. They read the licensing before sending to the OTRS. Brian Simpson, Manager at Prospect Park is the correct person. You will never get an email directly from Jonathan Davis, management takes care of all of that for him with his authority. I have been given the same authority, all images I upload I get approved directly from the artist and management before uploading. There should be an email on file concerning that from Brian Simpson at Prospect Park. I think it was on a Korn image that he included that statement. They passed off this authority to me as an authorized representative of the artist so that they could deal with other pressing matters. Please let me know if there is anything else you need for clarification so that we can get this worked out. Thank you again! Nbcwd (talk) 12:42, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
That works for me. A question could be raised about how they came to own the images, but if you tell me that they've discussed it with Fadewook Studios, I'll assume good faith on that and the OTRS ticket does indeed include an email from their management, so I'll undelete the images. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 13:08, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes, they have talked to them and so have I. Thank you again for all your help. Nbcwd (talk) 13:17, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Gardenology-IMG_4868_hunt10mar.jpg and Gardenology-IMG_4867_hunt10mar.jpg

I would like to confirm the permission to use the images at File:Gardenology-IMG_4868_hunt10mar.jpg and File:Gardenology-IMG_4867_hunt10mar.jpg. I plan to use them in a new English wikipedia article on Cyrtostachys renda and I will at least cite the first image and might use one or both in the article. I am in the process of writing the article at User:Tucoxn/Cyrtostachys renda. The citation for the first image is currently reference #5 — I believe it is cited correctly, using {{cite sign}}. The OTRS ticket number for the first image is ticket #2010122210000934 and the ticket link is here. The OTRS ticket number for the second image is ticket #2010122210000934 and the ticket link is here (seems like the same number and link). Thanks! Tucoxn (talk) 03:36, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

This file:

  • has an OTRS permission
  • has another deleted file as source (deleted rationale: duplicate)

File:TGV 2N2 4701 Basel.jpg was deleted and replaced by File:TGV 2N2 4701 Basel (w).jpg as it contained a watermark. The permission in the ticket (ticket:2010101910013378) was accepted, though I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do as the name mentioned in the email (and on the watermark) is not the same as the name of the person who *send* the email. I'd appreciate it if another OTRS volunteer could look into this matter and give a second opinion. I'm inclined to delete the file or ask for a more clear permission. Anyone? BTW, the source of the deleted file was {{own}} (own work) and the "permission" in the ticket suggests the same. Trijnsteltalk 12:27, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
I agree with you. The OTRS ticket came from a free webmail address, but the watermark on the deleted file says it's from eisenbahnfotos.ch. So I had a look at that site and the contact page contains an email address at the same domain. I'd say your inclination to delete it is spot on.

File:Alannah Myles(2).jpg

(cross posted at OTRS talk)

The photograher may only wish to licence the low resolution size. Did I annotate it correctly or is there another method. Larger versions are available on the net but shouldn't be used to replace this file.--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:57, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
There are two totally different images in the file page (see bottom), which is not acceptable. Please advise. Also, we me permission for this image from the creator/copyright holder by email as described in COM:CONSENT. --Krd 19:06, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
I created the file with one of my images for the copyright holder to view and adjust before uploading his image. Since then I was provided the low resolution image and overwrote mine. Can he insist on licence for the low resolution only even though higher resolution ones are on the net? This is all just to provide an image fo the infobox of Ms. Myles' article on en:wp.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:49, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Does this file have a ticket number yet? I am told an email was sent but Mr. Doda still needs to confirm the type of licence because his permission was too vague. We would also like to confirm the correct way to note that he is only licencing the low resolution image for the infobox. I have also been sent a different image for the article by Mr. Doda and he my mention that as well.--Canoe1967 (talk) 15:19, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
There is a ticket:2013030210006399 - it does not follow the ideal format but it clearly proves intent of the photographer. It is unclear if we are going to get a better one. I am inclined to add {{PermissionOTRS}} and close this case. Thoughts? --Jarekt (talk) 12:43, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
I see no harm in changing the tag to accepted. I assume Mr. Doda has seen the image and licence and accepts it as is. If we make it too awkward to have professionals licence images for use in articles then they may balk if we ask them in the future. I have it on my watchlist in case someone overwrites it with a higher resolution image that violates the licence. Should we somehow lock uploads on these file pages as they are merely for articles? I doubt anyone will bother with derivatives as they would have to think about personality rights to actually use them anywhere. I have another photographic producer that has agreed to host some of her images as well. Expect some strange email from her ticket in regards to CC licensing. We may eventually convince them to upload works that have lesser value to them. I failed in getting one of a dead cat for w:Casper (cat). The online images are low quality and have no value at this point yet they wish to hoard them and make the article look a little lame without an image.--Canoe1967 (talk) 00:20, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Zawra-shorta-friendly-dec07.jpg

According to this file description, the copyright holder of the file allows anyone to use it for any purpose, provided that the copyright holder is properly attributed. However, the file description page does not seem to attribute the copyright holder. The author field only states that the file was previously uploaded to English Wikipedia by en:User:Chaldean (which in itself says nothing about who is the author or copyright holder). According to the file's metadata, it's a photo by Ali Al-Saadi/AFP/Getty Images. Is there any merit to the supposed OTRS permission? LX (talk, contribs) 13:04, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

ticket:2007020610000767 is one of those very unclear tickets, likely since it is being badly translated from "Assyrian" (i did not know that Assyrian is being still used). But what the ticket says is that images taken from Ankawa.com are ok to be used on Wikipedia as long as they are attributed to Ankawa.com. No info on authors / photographers, or license. No claim that the website owns copyright to its content. --Jarekt (talk) 17:52, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Started Commons:Deletion requests/File:Zawra-shorta-friendly-dec07.jpg. It seems Ankawa.com contains a forum which is unmoderated and uses files from Wikimedia Commons without adhering to the licensing terms (see the fourth entry on File talk:Pergamonmuseum Babylon Ischtar-Tor.jpg), so that ticket is demonstrably invalid and should be marked as such. See also Commons:Deletion requests/File:صدام و چند آمریکایی.jpg, Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard/archive/2012#File:Kha BNisan in Nahla.jpg, en:Wikipedia talk:File copyright tags/Archive 8#CAnkawa and en:User talk:Chaldean/Archive3#CAnkawa images/en:User talk:Jkelly/Archive09#Deleted images. This probably also calls File:Meyassr Behnam.jpeg, File:Chaldean Rite Martyrs prayer - Tuesday Matins.ogg, File:Chaldean Rite Martyrs prayer - Tuesday Vespers.ogg, File:Chaldean Rite Martyrs prayer - Monday Matins.ogg, File:Chaldean Rite Martyrs prayer - Thursday Matins.ogg and File:Chaldean Rite Martyrs prayer - Monday Vespers.ogg into question. On English Wikipedia, there's en:File:Fawzi Hariri.jpg, en:File:Assyrians in Russia.jpg, en:File:PaulosFarajRahho.png, en:File:Karamelsaid.jpg – all of which are tagged to be transferred here, whereas they should probably just be deleted from there. I realise that this is an old ticket, but if the OTRS volunteer who approved this ticket is still an authorised OTRS agent, please make sure that they understand that tickets like this should not be approved. LX (talk, contribs) 19:12, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
I am quite new to OTRS, and do not understand it very well, but with a lot of old tickets there does not seem to be an "approval" process. For this ticket all email exchange was between a wikipedia user and OTRS. User claimed to have reserved an email from Ankawa.com, but could no forward it. Most emails are questions to that user with no answer, except that we do not know his name or username, ( some name on the email matches username in this category. ). I suspect that OTRS templates were not added by OTRS volunteer. Other files related to this ticket:
--Jarekt (talk) 19:55, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
It's been ages since I gave up my OTRS access, so my memory is a little hazy, but I think some queues are typically used for more generic correspondence, like the info queues. I think you should still be able to add a comment noting the problems with the "permission". LX (talk, contribs) 20:46, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

However, I am told that what was contained in the email might not be enough but I need to know what is missing in order to fix it. Sebastien Paquet has given me approval to upload the file to the Commons with the CC BY-SA 3.0 License as stated in the email. Korn's management own the copyrights to the file and Sebastien Paquet is Korn's photographer/videographer and I am authorized by management to release these photos of Korn. There have been other emails stating this before pertaining to Korn, JDevil and Killbot photos. Can you please assist me so that this problem can be resolved? The OTRS Ticket is 2013032910014526 Thank you in advance! Nbcwd (talk) 19:53, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I'm satisfied after our conversation a few days ago, so I've just approved it. As I said by email, if you both use the boilerplate, it'll just be rubber-stamped as soon as somebody checks it. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:21, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Ticket:2011022010002506

I don't have access to whatever queue this ticket is in (presumably PL permissions). Piotrobr (talk · contribs) has recently uploaded paintings by the still-living Zbigniew Kresowaty, who has apparently granted permission in the above ticket to host certain of his works (e.g., File:Zbigniew Bieńkowski.JPG). Does the above ticket apply to the works just uploaded by Piotrobr as well, or do they need to be deleted? Эlcobbola talk 19:55, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

I can't access it either; I've asked on the mailing list for an OTRS admin to move it to permissions-commons. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:08, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
OK, Daniel has kindly moved it to permissions-commons, but it contains over 100 emails and they're all in Polish. Google Translate will help, but it'll be quite a task to figure out which files it applies to and whether it's valid. I don't have time at the minute, but you should be able to access it now. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:42, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I guess this is related to Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Piotrobr --Jarekt (talk) 16:32, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

There are 18 separate tickets with dozens of images sent by the artist. All uploads by Piotrobr (talk · contribs) contained images that the author sent us in last several years for upload. --Jarekt (talk) 18:17, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Photo of Ted Malloch (File:Tedmalloch interview.jpeg) was removed and need to be restored

Hello,

I had the owner of the photograph (Tedmalloch_interview.jpeg) sent an email as per the required format to the email address "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org". I hope you and your team received it.

The email was sent on: "Friday 05 April 2013" with the email subject: "RE: [WSX #9093]: Fwd: Ted Malloch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This is not the right picture !!!!!"

Is it possible for you restore the photo as soon as possible? Dr. Malloch would like to have his photo on his Wiki page as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and help. Looking forward to hear from you.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Malloch

Best Regards, -Madhan

We have received the permission (ticket:2013040510004704) for the image and have made the necessary modifications to the Image page. Thank you for providing this to us, and for your contribution to the Wikimedia Commons.--MehdiTalk 14:02, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

en:File:Celeb-Toby Pimlico.jpg

Hi. The uploader of en:File:Celeb-Toby Pimlico.jpg says at en:User talk:B#Toby Mott image that they have sent proof of permission for this image to OTRS. Could I get someone to check this permission and confirm its sufficiency? Thanks. --UserB (talk) 11:30, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I found 2 thickets (ticket:2013032510009567 and ticket:2013041510006327)! This file is composed with 9 photos and we need source, information and agreement about all of them from original owner but this user sent forwarded email from tobymott to "permissions-en"! :) --MehdiTalk 13:15, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Another file with same license problem is File:TobyMott1977.jpg --MehdiTalk 13:19, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. To clarify, is the problem just that the email is forwarded and you need to hear it straight from the horse's mouth or is the problem that "tobymott" is not (or does not claim to be) the copyright holder of all of the individual images? --UserB (talk) 16:09, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Both of them. :) --MehdiTalk 17:09, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. For the moment, I have tagged the image on :en: with a timer that will expire in seven days (after which the image will be deleted). If more time is needed to verify the permission, please feel free to push the timer out to some future date as desired. --UserB (talk) 01:38, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
I think that's enough! After reception (any time), We can change it to undeleted file and restore the page!--MehdiTalk 07:00, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

en:File:ScottShaferProfileImage.jpg

Can someone verify the permission of en:File:ScottShaferProfileImage.jpg? This is a studio photo of en:Scott Shafer, the head football coach of Syracuse. The image description page credits "Scott Shafer" as the author, which is, of course, absurd - the author is whoever took the photo. Generally, the expectation would be that some photography studio owns the copyright to the image. Can someone check and see who this permission is from and whether it seems to be a reasonable assertion. Thanks. --UserB (talk) 01:40, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Not worth the paper it's (not) printed on. The "permission" is from somebody with a free webmail address purporting to be the subject. Accordingly, I've deleted the image on enwiki. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:44, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

confirm permission & license for use of this photo: File:Niccolò da Foligno - The Prophet Abraham - Walters 37620A.jpg

Hello, There are several licenses quoted for this image so I would like to make sure I do this correctly. I would just like to confirm that the photo of this painting can be posted on the website (under construction) of www.worldreligions.ch citing the Creator as : Niccolò Alunno Source: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Niccol%C3%B2_da_Foligno_-_The_Prophet_Abraham_-_Walters_37620A.jpg Copyright: © Niccolò Alunno- Walters Art Museum - CC BY-SA 3.0

Hi Helen, I think you would want to change your copyright line to just say, "Copyright: © Walters Art Museum - CC BY-SA 3.0". Niccolò Alunno made the original piece of art 500+ years ago. The Walters Art Museum owns the copyright to the photo. --UserB (talk) 13:01, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
And if you want to add a link than I would just link directly to Source: http://art.thewalters.org/detail/39972 . That is where we got the image. --Jarekt (talk) 13:27, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

I found the ticket:2013032510004259! At first, Please changing the source name from "own work" to real source! After this, we need an agreement from owner of these files! So, please send and email for nina and say it for reading com:OTRS and send an email for Us with this agreement!--MehdiTalk 16:13, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
Hello Mihdi, I've already sent the letter to OTRS a month ago. Still no answer.
I write "own source" because the source is me as for Nina agreed to give me the rights to upload the photos and change the incorrect texts of poses with her help, because the Wiki is very difficult for a common user, so I do it.
There's no other source. What to do with OTRS? and What is the "ticket"? I don't understand. Will OTRS read the letter from Nina, return the deleted files. Thank you.—Preceding unsigned comment was added by 46.39.46.196 (talk) 19 April 2013 (UTC10:12)

Thank you, Mehdi.
As you can see at my page http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Kennguru - other files are suspected by Turelio, and I'm afraid that they'll be deleted.I just have a question: Should I add to all the images that already uploaded this? {{PermissionOTRS|id=2013032510004259|Mehdi}} And should I add this to other future uploaded images?
Thank you again.Best regards, Kennguru (Alexey)
No. This permission is only for Nina Mel's Photos and I added this permission to all images of Nina that you uploaded. If You have new images of Nina, You can Upload but with this template ({{OTRS pending}}. After this You can leave a comment for me or other OTRS agents for checking and adding this permission. --MehdiTalk 06:28, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

I wrote to the owner of this image Jennifer Greenburg via e-mail asking for a release, obtained preliminary permission, and wrote back with details on how to submit a formal release to permissions. Can someone please check to see if a release was received? If we have not heard from her, I guess she had second thoughts, and this image should be deleted. It is not used anywhere. Thank you.

Ticket is from 2011. Does it cover all files from the website groengeelhart.nl or only some particular files uploaded to Commons in 2011? Does it cover files unpublished at the time of permission e.g. File:Charlton Vicento.jpg which is created in 2012? --Martin H. (talk) 15:02, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Indeed, it covers all files from this website. This is basically an amateur fansite of a soccer club, we are allowed to use the images as long as they are "own work" by the website groengeelhart.nl ... We have to be careful that this website might have pictures that do have copyright somewhere else (and that this website is violating copyright also). But we have clear allowance to use their original images. Edoderoo (talk) 06:40, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Overture Networks images

Hi. Please see en:User_talk:B#Overture_Networks_images, which is in reference to several photos from en:Overture Networks.

Your ticket number is 2013042310004528! You sent a forwarded email from h*d*@*.* to Us! I checked Your photo but your photo's doesn't have any Metadata? Where is your image's source? How can I be sure who is photos owner?--MehdiTalk 07:17, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for checking. The e-mail to permissions was not from me, the e-mail to permissions was the standard release template sent from the copyright holder, as stated in the e-mail. The owner is not a Wikipedian, so I uploaded the image, but I am not the owner. I uploaded a new version of the file including ownership as jpeg comment metadata. I hope this clarifies. Thanks again. HughD (talk) 20:19, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
You changed EXIf Metadata with metadata editors! I think this photo taken with a digital camera. Do You have original version of this photo with original metadata? --MehdiTalk 17:52, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. Yes, as I said I added metadata because you said it did not have any. Yes, this image was taken with a digital camera, I have the original, and it has some metadata such as date and exposure, but not the owner. It is a group photo including some non-notable other persons. In the ticketed e-mail to permissions, (cc'ed to me), the owner refers to this image using the commons url, identifies themselves as the owner and copyright holder, and includes the commons standard release template. Thanks again for your help with this. HughD (talk) 19:28, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
So, You cropped this photo and removed other persons?--MehdiTalk 19:59, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes. Is that a problem? I hope not. At the ticket you have a standard release template that identifies THIS cropped image by commons url, the sender identifies themselves as the owner & copyright holder, and agrees to a CC license.

I actually think there's one big problem. Non-wiki people don't understand (and don't really want to understand) the template or the process. For me this us just history repeating itself. I'm sure from his point of view he couldn't have said it any more plainly. I'll try once more. But after a while it just gets demoralising for all concerned.

Sorry,He didn't say Wikipedia! We can not using this photo. You can try another way! Please say to him for changing his photo's license in flicker! this photo is copyrighted and we can't use this.

I think one might assume he meant English Wikipedia. But I realise that the process can't cope with common-sense assumptions. However, regardless of which wiki, he can't have what he asked for on 3 April, it seems. Thanks for making that clear. I'll now need to go back to him and see if he will change the license for that one image to cc-by-sa. That sounds much easier. Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 10:51, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Success (I hope). He has now changed the license. I wonder could you possibly check that the new license on the image is the correct one? If it is, then I assume I can simply upload it here and then use it in the Wikipedia article. Does the author's name have to appear in the image caption? Thanks.

Madonna photos

Hi everybody! I uploaded several photos from Madonna's last world tour taken by a Belgian fan a couple of weeks ago but the files still haven't received the OTRS approval although the person who took the photos sent the mail as soon as the photos were uploaded (at permissions-commons-fr) since I am French speaking.

DR STEEL NURSE "ISRAELI PROPAGANDA"

I want to know if this is the original work of, im assuming Dr. Steel? There is a modified version of this picture with IDF (Israeli Military) propaganda that says "ISREAL's FINEST" with the flag and some letters at the bottom that say "ZB". I ask because there is a web page on Facebook called " I acknowledge Apartheid Exists" and its saying that the Israeli military still sexualizes their military propaganda and whatever whatever... I just want to know if it was some troll that made this and sent it to this page or if the Israeli military went through all this bullshit getting an OTRS ticket and then modifying this original content. I hope I am in the right place making this discussion.

the picture I am talking about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DrSteelNursePoster.jpg

I would guess that our image is the original from Doctor Steel (who is a musician...this image is some of his publicity material), and that the modified image (I'm assuming it is this one: https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/603624_126272160900808_726567518_n.jpg) is probably a photoshop project that was posted online and repurposed by someone trolling the IDF. Huntster (t @ c) 09:47, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
I agree with Huntster and the OTRS permission was given by Dr. Steel himself; I can verify that. Trijnsteltalk 21:57, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

7-day deletion notice vs 100-day backlog?

In the last 3 hrs permissions-commons@ will have received an email with Decl of Consent from the copyright holder for the following:

I'm confused because, on the one hand, there's a scary 7-day deletion notice on these files, yet I read somewhere else that OTRS is 100 days behind -- the article was a DYK a few days ago and it would be embarrassing for the images to disappear. Someone suggested I post here for "expedited attention", though there would be chaos if everyone did that for every upload they cared about -- nonetheless here I am. Can someone relieve my anxiety? Thanks. EEng (talk) 23:16, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

As long as there is an "OTRS pending" tag on there, you can remove the "no license" tag. This takes it out of the category for 7-day deletion. -- King of ♠ 02:58, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Check for email regarding File:TangieAmbrose with short hair.JPG

I provided some advice to the uploaders of TangieAmbrose with short hair.JPG (recently deleted) regarding contacting OTRS (I am also pointing them to this page). It was deleted with just a notation of "Copyright violation", so I'm not sure if the deleting admin checked OTRS.

I believe the OTRS email was sent by Tangie Ambrose, the subject of the photograph. Superm401 - Talk 05:36, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

The ticket:2013021410001462 is about File:TangieAmbrose with short hair.JPG. The file was deleted as a copy of http://www.tangieambrose.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/IMG_9869.JPG. The email associated with the www.tangieambrose.com website is "Tangie@TangieAmbrose.com" which is not the email of the original correspondence with OTRS. Since the image was previously published it might be prudent to request proof that person sending the permission is associated with the website. That can be done by sending email from "Tangie@TangieAmbrose.com". --Jarekt (talk) 13:40, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
There is a permission statement in OTRS, I reviewed it. However, it did not specify a file name on Commons, it only referred to an attached image, so I sent the standard request for a link to the uploaded image, and received no reply. While I cannot see the deleted image, the description is consistent with the image attached to the email, and matches the photo at the link. If someone wants to undelete the image, I can process the permission, after sending an email to Tangie@TangieAmbrose.com to confirm. --Sphilbrick (talk) 13:50, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
The image in OTRS email matches File:TangieAmbrose with short hair.JPG. I undeleated it. --Jarekt (talk) 13:58, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Press Photo Matt Toka.jpg

Seeking status on the OTRS ticket associated with this image. Image is claimed to be public domain, however image is listed on the press kit of the artist at Warner Brothers [8] and also at a 3rd party site [9] that asserts a full copyright without asserting any exceptions to the image. There is a reasonable suspicion that there is no OTRS ticket on file for this so I'd like to diffuse the OTRS shield before I yank the public domtain tag and the OTRS pending tag start poking around for a admin to delete this article that has long been due for a CSD deletion. Note: I only found the article when reviewing a Articles for Creation submission at en.WP and clicked into the references on the article and saw the same image. I have de-linked the image at this time as I think that it is inappropriate to link to the image while this copyright question is handled. Hasteur (talk) 12:58, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

ticket #2009110110006857 - Tarcisius statue

File:Minis2Echternach2009.jpg and File:TarcisiusEchternach.jpg were recently deleted as "Media without a source". These two photographs were originally uploaded to de.wikipedia.org by user Tanjalux and later transferred to Commons. It seems that both show a work (sculpture) by Bernhard Lang and are photographed by Tanja Konsbruck, according to descriptions. Tanja Konsbruck is probably de-Wikipedia user Tanjalux. The description of File:TarcisiusEchternach.jpg gives Tanja Konsbruck as source and author, whereas File:Minis2Echternach2009.jpg gives Bernhard Lang and says at "permission": (Bernhard Lang (CH) und Tanja Konsbruck (L)). Now, we have a similar file at File:Tarcisius in Echternach.jpg containing an OTRS permission. As there is no freedom of panorama in Luxembourg, we need permission from the sculptor, Bernhard Lang. So, could an OTRS volunteer look at this ticket in order to confirm whether it covers the sculpture? If this ticket is about the sculpture, I think we can restore the deleted two photographs, even without an OTRS permission of the photographer, as the photographs seem to be plausible own works of uploader Tanjalux. Or maybe the permission covers both (sculptor and photographer)? Gestumblindi (talk) 19:14, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Ticket:2009110110006857 contains an e-mail by Bernhard Lang in which he clearly intends to release "grosse Tarcisiusstatue – Bild von Tanja Konsbruck – tanjalux [Ticket#: 2009110110014348" under a free license (the mail contains the boilerplate about third parties being able to use it commercially etc), but Mr Lang does not specify which particular free license he releases the image under. I'm not sure if that answers the question, bit that's all I can tell based on the OTRS correspondence. Sandstein (talk) 18:25, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. So the release is only about one specific picture, not all pictures Tanja Konsbruck made of the statue? And furthermore, if he forgot to explicitly state the applicable license, it's basically invalid and there is no license at all. Now I'm not sure whether we should be formalistic in this case and delete File:Tarcisius in Echternach.jpg also - or just assume that the e-mail by the sculptor Bernhard Lang is evidence enough that, at least for this specific photo, he's fine with reproduction, "third parties being able to use it commercially etc." - One of many examples showing that our licensing requirements seem often a bit hard to fulfill even for those who are perfectly willing to do so... Gestumblindi (talk) 19:09, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes, he mentions only one image, but as the sculptor he can't affect the copyright status of any one photograph, only that of the statue the photograph depicts. No way that this release would hold up in court for either work, if only because no particular license is mentioned, but on the other hand I agree that it is very difficult for laypeople to correctly formulate (or even understand) licensing statements. Sandstein (talk) 21:51, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
I would have thought that, as the creator, the sculptor could also release only one particular view of the statue as shown in a specific photograph...? Couldn't I, if I were a sculptor, say e.g. "I release the front view of my sculpture X under license Z, but no other view"? Gestumblindi (talk) 14:26, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
That's a good question. I suppose that would work. Sandstein (talk) 12:37, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

File:James Mylne.jpg

I'd like a progress report on the re-instatement of the above file, a photo of artist James Mylne which was deleted from the wiki article which I authored. I've had contact with a Miss Sophie and I Never Cry at Commons, as well as Mr. Mylne himself, but progress seems to have stagnated. I'd decided to step back while James Mylne dealt with getting the proper permission to you but I haven't heard back from him about it; just thought I'd look into it myself, as I'd like to be able to re-insert the photo to the wiki as part of a revision which has been on standby while this is handled. Your attention and assistance with this is appreciated. Penwatchdog (talk) 06:11, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Additional info in this matter: The picture was deleted because of an insufficient permission (see Commons:Deletion requests/File:James Mylne.jpg), that didn't come from the copyright holder Danfung Dennis but the displayed person James Mylne. Now a new (valid) permission by the photographer Danfung Dennis, forwarded by James Mylne, should have been received by OTRS staff, according to what James Mylne wrote on my talk page. --Miss-Sophie (talk) 03:10, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Latest word from James Mylne is that Mr. Danfung's permission has been solicited directly, permission-template and OTRS contacts have been provided to him, and Danfung has agreed to "handle it"... If someone can please keep an eye out for his permission and push it through, I thank you kindly in advance. Penwatchdog (talk) 04:33, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the update. If it's not out of line to ask, would someone be able to provide (direct?) notification upon reinstatement? As mentioned above, I'm on standby with a revision for Mr. Mylne's wikipedia article, so I'll keep waiting so I can re-insert the image with the revision. By the way, there's been some mention of a "space" between "James" and "Mylne" in the file name. Please folks, Mr. Mylne was helpful at the beginning of this but I can sense I'm "losing" him, meaning: I don't want to have to ask him to ask the photographer to repeat the process just because of a missing "space"! Please keep an eye out for both "James Mylne" AND/OR "JamesMylne" (a photograph of the artist (Mylne) discussing his work) and treat them as one-in-the-same! Please and Thanks!

File:Drawing of Jerri hall by James Mylne in Evening Standard Newspaper.jpg is another matter.

But the other copyright holders (at least four more) didn't allow the usage. --Miss-Sophie (talk) 22:37, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry about the pictures being deleted. They are still there, the only difference is that only admins can see them now. They can be restored once permission has been made clear. For more information, see Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard/FAQ. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 22:09, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Celeste Anderson holding a controller by Nick Lachance.jpg

Could someone checkup on the status of File:Celeste Anderson holding a controller by Nick Lachance.jpg? The uploader claims to have mailed permission on March 23, 2013. For convenience: [10], [11] -FASTILY 21:23, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

secure OTRS-channel available?

Is a secure "OTRS-channel", eventually directly at WMF (or WMF legal) available? It would be easier to Keep-close the disputed Commons:Deletion requests/File:Base militaire de Pierre-sur-Haute.jpg, if the photographer could be offered a OTRS-channel with Zero risk of leakage of his personal data in order to send permission for the photo. No offense meant. But a French secret service might target him/her. --Túrelio (talk) 07:09, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't think such a channel exists. Permission should be send to permissions-fr/permissions-commons-fr and OTRS is already a restricted tool... Trijnsteltalk 20:03, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
To elaborate on what Trijnstel said, OTRS is all fairly sensitive in nature thus it is all fairly private. There are IRC channels where OTRS agents collaborate; some private and some are public (#wikimedia-otrs exists on freenode, and all current OTRS agents are voiced there). I suppose if you have something that needs to be addressed with special care you might email our otrs-permissions-l mailing list? But if it is just a general permissions issue, permissions-en - at - wikimedia.org is the normal route. Rjd0060 (talk) 20:22, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi there.

Another try on this image? OTRS to contact author

Greetings, it's been a few months since I've tried this request. Can an OTRS volunteer please look up ticket:2012121510000926 and try to contact the author of the image, File:Jeffrey Boam.jpg? A permission email was sent by the subject's spouse, who was given the proper licensing language originally, but I was told sent OTRS a message without the proper format. The author was contacted last year by OTRS, without success. I'm requesting that someone from OTRS please try again. Thanks you! Astrocog (talk) 19:03, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't know who told you that (that you should send a message without the proper format), but the permission email we received was unsufficient. The widow said: "I took this picture of Jeffrey [..]. You have my permission to use it [..]." Another OTRS volunteer replied on 5/1 that we can't accept this and pointed to the sample emails. Trijnsteltalk 21:08, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Typo above on my part. I meant with, not "without". I didn't know that someone replied on 5/1. Thanks for the update. I hope it works! Cheers, Astrocog (talk) 16:14, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Deleted file from you and permission ticket:2013051510003926

Hi everybody!

I am a Wikipedia contributor, I don't have an OTRS account.

I'm writing a Wikipedia page about the composer Umberto Scipione, I'd like to upload an image in this page. The image I want to upload belongs to Umberto Scipione himself , the url of the image is: http://www.umbertoscipione.it/home/it/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/foto_e_nome_no_off_s.jpg.

I got the permission from the owner to issue the file on wikipedia and I got the permission from Lorenzo Losa at Wikimedia Commons as well: ticket:2013051510003926

I made a mistake uploading the file and not referring to the number of autorization: the image has been deleted from you.

I'm trying uploading the file again but Wikimwdia doesn't allow me to do it.

You tell me that my permission is available as ticket #2013051510003926 for users with an OTRS account, but, as I told you, I can't log in OTRS.

How can I do now? Is there something you could do centrally?

Claudio Edinger images uploaded by User:Estudioe

I note that among images covered by Ticket 2013020510005225 are included several book covers (link to files). Where it meets the threshold of originality, a cover design's copyright is likely held by the publisher, not by the book's author, so an attestation by the author that he or she freely licenses an image of the book cover is not sufficient unless it's accompanied by a similar statement from the publisher.

In my non-expert opinion, some of the covers in this case may fall below the threshold of originality and thus not be eligible for copyright qua book cover. Nevertheless, I often wonder when I see an OTRS ticket connected an image of a book cover whether the OTRS volunteer is aware that the author doesn't hold the rights to the cover art and therefore can't license an image of the cover. I have similar misgivings when I see a dustjacket photo of an author (or, in fact, any professional head shot) provided by the subject or an associate: typically, at least in North America, the copyright to head shots belongs to the photographer, not to the subject, so the subject's consent to publish it under a free license is immaterial. --Rrburke (talk) 15:39, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

That ticket is not from several book authors, but from the photographer Claudio Edinger who provided cover photographs. --Jarekt (talk) 12:38, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

File:James Mylne.jpg

Once again, the file(photo) noted above, for which I've already spent far too much time jumping through hoops for you folks, has been suddenly and randomly deleted. This is ridiculous. You are wasting my time and testing the patience of the artist/copyright-holder who was nice enough to provide the photo and supply the proper permissions/confirmations. PLEASE REINSTATE THE ABOVE FILE IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT QUESTION, stop wasting people's time, and get your act together by letting your left hand know what your right hand is doing! Author of the wikipedia article for which the file was solicited: Penwatchdog (talk) 02:22, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

I beg your pardon? I restored the photo in early April to give you the chance to arrange the rights permissions et cetera. That didn't happen thus the photo is deleted. According to the EXIF data the photographer is Danfung Dennis and not James Mylne itself. That means Danfung Dennis has to give permission to upload this photo under the free license cc-by-sa-3.0 on Commons. I also explained this in the email conversation (ticket:2013022310004559). But you keep giving me the email of James Mylne + you keep whining about the fact that it's so hard to get the permission and bla bla bla. I don't care whether or not it's hard to get the permission, but we should HAVE the permission from the copyright holder in order to accept the permission.
So, I'll explain it again. In the email James Mylne asks Danfung Dennis the following: "If you're OK with it, could you please reply granting me the permission please?" And Danfung Dennis replied with: "Of course, you have my permission to use my photo." This is not sufficient. Danfung Dennis should either explicitly state in an email that he agrees to upload this file under cc-by-sa-3.0 OR he should use the standard permission template (Commons:Email templates - filled in of course). Good luck. Trijnsteltalk 13:39, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
I see. By the previous reinstatement of the photo, and James Mylne's confirmation he had handled it, I was under the impression this was all behind us. Sorry for jumping the gun but wasting time dealing with things over again is, well, I'm sure you know...
You can go ahead and disregard all of the above and delete this request; I wash my hands of the matter. I provided them with exactly what they needed to say and where they needed to send it; if they couldn't get that right themselves then I give up. Very sorry, Trijnstel, nothing personal with you, you've been nothing but helpful. Penwatchdog (talk) 14:21, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

We actually prefer users to upload the files themselves: Special:UploadWizard, but if you don't succeed, you can send us a zip-file if you wish. Jcb (talk) 21:18, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
Apologies for not being clearer. What I've done in the past is to upload the images myself, insert the URLs into the email containing the agreed-upon Declaration of Consent, and forward this email to OTRS. This email usually has the attached images included for OTRS. I was simply wondering if a zip file would be ok in the event this photographer prefers to compress several images for ease of attaching. Sounds like a zip file would be ok. This is the photographer's prerogative, I simply wanted to know if I had to unzip the images and re-attach them on the OTRS email. Thanks! – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 21:31, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
If I have to process a ticket with a zip-file, no problem. If another volunteer has difficulties with zip-files, he/she will just leave the ticket for a volunteer who doesn't have difficulties with it. So feel free to use them. Jcb (talk) 21:38, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Re: Richard Sears' Wu Pictographs

I wish to use 2 of his pictographs in my capstone project for OCOM (Oregon College of Oriental Medicine) as a requirement for a DAOM (Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) degree. Title of paper: Heaven & Earth: Origins of Ancient Cosmology of Egypt and China.

Richard says on the site for Wu, to leave a message here on the OTRS board.

Ticket:2013031510005384

Hi, could you please check this ticket against the following files:

I yesterday deleted them because they had +30 days with {{OTRS pending}}. The uploader set the OTRS release after I set the {{nopd}} template at 2013-05-17, as he is not OTRS volounteer I reverted him and deleted the files one week after. H contacted me after deletion - see here.If you need addional details from the description pages please let me know. Thx and regards. --JuTa 08:53, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Firstly, the ticket wasn't accepted by OTRS volunteer, he just asked to upload them to Commons first so that he could review them and mark with OTRS template later. Secondly, I see no evidence of connection between veteransyria.org and the sender's email and I am not sure that we should keep these pictures at the moment rubin16 (talk) 12:09, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

ticket:2009041810026228 Anna Ternheim

Re: File:Anna Ternheim performing a video session 01.jpg. Two questions: Does this ticket refer only to the Anna Ternheim image, or can I, for example, add the otrs tag to File:Khaled Mouzanar and Delphine Chanéac, Festival International Musique & Cinéma, 2008.jpg, where I removed the watermark? Second, if the OTRS ticket has the photographer's email address, am I allowed to ask for it to be emailed to me? My email address can be found at ticket:2013042910009665. I cannot determine if he checks his Flickr mail, Twitter is somewhat of a silly way to contact someone, and Facebook threatens to put my messages in an "Other" folder. I need real-life contact info, if possible. Thank you OTRS! – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 17:17, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

I added this ticket to File:Anna Ternheim, Le Cargo interview, 2009.jpg using an actual tag rather than an HTML message, as left by User:Chaser on the original file. I notice my edit was "tagged" and that's fine, but for transparency, I'm mentioning it here as well. Hopefully everything is up to snuff. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 20:06, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Blanket OTRS ticket

Is a blanket OTRS ticket okay? All future images emailed to me from a photographer would be tagged with the same ticket number. The Declaration of Consent would state this specifically. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 17:03, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

OTRS tags must be placed on files by an OTRS member, otherwise the software flags them for review, as potentially invalid. They are welcome to give a blanket permission in the email (to some extent - it must of course have some sort of specificity of files) and they would all have the same ticket number. However, the files would still have to be tagged by an OTRS member, so that things can be verified/etc. - Rjd0060 (talk) 01:52, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Great. So let's say I write up the Declaration of Consent with a fairly specific blanket permission (in this case, images of celebrities emailed directly from him to me), this email would be assigned a ticket number. From that point forth, I would forward to OTRS all the emails that he sends to me (with attached images). Can I reference that originating ticket number in the email? All images would be uploaded with a subst:OP template, and you guys would swing by and add the ticket as per usual. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 01:59, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

I haven't been able to find any messages coming from the e–mail address of the uploader that dealt with this picture, nor have I been able to find any messages that mention the word "Sorbus" (except some extremely old ones). For what it's worth, I also searched for all tickets in the permissions, permissions-commons, permissions-pl and permissions-commons-pl queues that contained the word Stadion, without any luck.

Request to Undelete Photos of My Grandfather

Wiki - I am the originator of the Wiki page about my grandfather Captain Ernest Emery Harmon. A while back I attempted to upload photos of my granddad to the page I created in his honor. Unfortunately, due to my inexperience creating a Wiki page, I did not associate these photos with the appropriate permissions. I have since enlisted the help of a support person through Wiki Commons. The support person recommended that I contact you to request that the photos I uploaded be undeleted. Once this is accomplished this person will provide me with help regarding the required permissions. Here is the text of the email exchange I had with the Wiki volunteer support person:

Just specify that you mistakenly did not apply the correct permissions, that
you've been in contact with us, and that you will. Once an administrator undeletes
them, I can help you apply the right permission templates to mark them as your own
work.
Yours sincerely,

The title of the email is 傅文俊授权书. But the image's status has not changed. So they may be deleted soon. Could someone have a check? Thank you very much!!!--Chaonan (talk) 08:48, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

I cannot find any emails of this person or with that summary line in the permissions queues. Are you sure he send them to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org? Maybe they're in info-zh, but I don't have access to that queue so I cannot tell. Can you send or forward them again? Trijnsteltalk 08:55, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
It's not in info-zh either. -Mys 721tx (talk) 22:11, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

The uploader made four similar uploads on the same day. The other three have this ticket linked, does it also cover this file and is the licence correct? January (talk) 19:44, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it does and Hanay added the permission template this morning (ticket number is 2013052110009507 and he mentioned "cc-by-sa" btw). Trijnsteltalk 10:43, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Normally I would wait for the email to go through its natural course, but can I ask someone to kindly find the email titled "Avril Lavigne image" regarding File:Avril Lavigne - May 2013.jpg and let me know if everything is in order?

Rush request for Avril Lavigne

Hi OTRS, a declaration of consent was emailed today by User:Freaktheclown, uploader of File:Avril Lavigne - May 2013.jpg, in kind accordance with my instructions on his talk page at User talk:Freaktheclown#Verifying Avril Lavigne image. Because the image still remains tagged for deletion, I'd love to have the OTRS ticket 2013062310004355 (or as-yet-unassigned ticket) updated and, with any hope, approved so I can have the image deletion nomination closed and I can proceed with adding the photograph to other wikis.

Heleen Mees

The File:Heleen Mees.jpg author info credits Cynthia van Elk, but the PD license says Mees herself is the author. Can someone verify with the photographer permission on the OTRS ticket (ticket:2008061810023907) and update accordingly? czar · · 19:44, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

I read the ticket, which is obviously not sufficient. It's herself just stating that the picture is 'free of right'. No mentioning of author, no mentioning of license. I will nominate the file for deletion. Jcb (talk) 22:01, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

File:Rod Lurie Headshot.jpg

According to the file description, "the license agreement will be forwarded to OTRS 'shortly.'" Has anything been sent in yet? I'm a bit skeptical, since the uploader makes a number of demonstrably false and contradictory claims, such as:

  • It's a self-portrait (the subject is named as the author). In fact, the metadata indicates that this is a photo by Eric Charbonneau/WireImage. WireImage typically don't release their works into the public domain or publish them under a free license.
  • The uploader is the copyright holder ("I, the copyright holder of this work"). I don't think so.
  • The photo is both protected by copyright (and published under the Creative Commons Attribution 1.0 copyright license) and not protected by copyright ("I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain"). That's logically impossible.

Unfortunately that should not be applied to any images in Category:Photographs from Igor Bondarenko archive since those were photographs scanned from Igor Bondarenko books (source is "Igor Bondarenko archive"), but not taken by him in 1988 as is currently claimed.

To this picture an OTRS permission template was added without authorization. It refers to ticket:2008082610013775 which was handled in 2008 but includes a Dutch statement of the copyright holder. I do not understand much of that ticket as it is in Dutch but it apparently refers to a GFDL license only and it remains unclear to me if it refers to all future publication of photographs at erki.nl. This should be checked by another OTRS colleague who has a better understanding of Dutch than me. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 21:25, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

The ticket states that all photos from www.erki.nl may be uploaded on Wikimedia Commons under the GFDL license. See Category:Photographs by Erik van Leeuwen for all files and there's even a special template: Template:Erki.nl.

Ticket#2013061010006743]

Below is a copy of the email that I sent to OTRS. Clearly, I utilized the OTRS template. I identified the photo to be used and where, how, and why, and the license I planned to use. The photo author clearly states that they are the author and that the photo may be used as described. This was sent to OTRS and I saw a notice on the wikimedia page that it had been received. What more must be done?! Please advise. Thanks!

"The photograph is mine and the website is mine. You have my permission to use the photograph." Is not a suitable license statement. They need to email OTRS with something like: "I took this photo and wish to license under CC-by-3.0 which I have viewed at: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en I understand that anyone can use it for any purpose including commercial and derivatives."--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:15, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

This reply from Eugene Hargrove is in direct response to my email to him with the OTRS provided permissions template letter. How much clearer must we have been, without having copied and reworded my letter nearly verbatim? It seems that in an effort to cover all the bases that WikiCommons has made uploading media a unreasonable headache and invalidated their own permissions template letter?! I really don't want to go to the department head of a major university and ask him to do a bunch of paper work just so that I can upload a photo to enhance the Wikipedia entry. This is getting silly. And I see lots of other complaints from lots of other users of similar!! Can we get someone else to weigh in on this issue? Thanks!

I think they like the wording to be precise and come from 'the horse's mouth'. That way there is no confusion about what rights are given by whom. It does frustrate many people but it is a legal document and needs to jump all the hoops, cross all the Ts, dot the i, have all the ducks in a row, and be acceptable by the Queen's lawyers type thing.--Canoe1967 (talk) 03:31, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

I don't understand why, since I had contacted the author, received a positive reply with the correct e-mail model and forwarded it to permissions-commons-pt@wikimedia.org (since both me and the author speak Portuguese). I followed all the 3 steps in here and my image got deleted anyway. Could you explain me why? And what should I do?

Just a curious question

What is the difference between Category:Items with OTRS permission confirmed (with about 410000 entries) and Category:Items with ticket OTRS permission confirmed (with about 20000 entries)? Could an should that be merged together, or are there undocumented reasons why this is split up? thx. --JuTa 08:47, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

I didn't have any idea either, so I looked it up and... (see also Template:PermissionOTRS)
So in order to have these two split, I would leave these two categories. Trijnsteltalk 14:04, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
It is a leftover of one of my old maintenance projects. In February I overhauled {{PermissionOTRS}} and merged it with {{OTRS}} and few other similar templates. One big issue was the huge variety of the ways one could specify tickets: through a "ticket", "ID", "freeform", "1" or "2" parameters. I was keeping track of images using each one of those methods and was trying to convert rarely used ones to a "id". The remaining 2 ways of specifying tickets are through "ID" (or its now alias "1") or through "ticket", which has too many (20k) entries to retire. We could combine them now since I am not planning on doing anything to Category:Items with ticket OTRS permission confirmed. Or we can keep them separated, since Category:Items with ticket OTRS permission confirmed have no ticket ID number range validation checks and could point to almost anything. --Jarekt (talk) 14:42, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

This file was uploaded in association with a Wikipedia entry. A copy of the permissions request, using OTRS form letter format, and the affirmative reply by the media owner was sent to OTRS and was acknowledged on the page by OTRS. File was fine for a month and then deleted. Please explain why and how to correct. Wikipedia entry is lame with out the photo. Thanks!--Sblafren (talk) 17:53, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

OTRS was not valid as the blog were the image was posted was not the original copyright holder: Copyright All rights reserved by Oregon State University. . Regards. Moros y Cristianos 18:06, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

THAT is NOT true. The blog is my father's blog, the photo is my mothers. Come again? The blog was dated 2007. The OSU Flkr is dated 20132009. It is NOT their photo. What should I do next? -Sean LaFreniere

The image was posted on Flickr on May 14, 2009, three weeks after it was created. The image was added to the blog in 2010 (it didn't exist before 23 April 2009). It has also a larger size than the one you posted. There may be a good reason for all that. Could you please explain (I could also be wrong at some point)? Regards. Moros y Cristianos 18:30, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

The photo size was kept small for the web, to make the page load faster. We have the original photo, dated May 2007, Whistler BC, and I can upload that one if it is preferred. The only reason that OSU had the photo was because my folks sent it to them when he gave a lecture there. They put it on their flickr account so that they could use in in web promotion of the lecture - evidently in 2009. But I had long since already had it on the blogspot page that I built for my father in 2007. http://gilbertlafreniere.blogspot.com/2007_12_01_archive.html.

Looks better by the minute ;-). Now we need OTRS people to re-examine the OTRS ticket for completeness. I would also advice to post a large version with original EXIF info. Kind regards. Moros y Cristianos 18:41, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

I can upload another photo. But I liked that one. And it was already out there, via the blog page, and evidently the OSU page, so it seemed like the one to use. What I REALLY dont like is that OSU has put their Copyright on a photo that is not theirs. I am trying to figure out Fickrs contact info to complain. I though I would first start with OSU, but there is not contact info at Flickr. Evidently you contact Yahoo to complain about Flickr issues. Anyway... I am working on it.

Ticket#2013060310004473 Thank you, the file has been marked as confirmed. Yours sincerely, Johan Bos (OTRS)

How do I get OTRS to review, how can upload larger photo, page is deleted. Thanks for your help Moros, btw.

I emailed copyright@yahoo-inc.com who controls Flickr. I gave them a link to this OTRS section and the Flickr image url. If you do have your mothers image it may be easiest to have her either create an account and upload it or have her email OTRS permissions for an original version that you upload. I doubt that OSU had a camera man at Whistler to take pictures of your family so there should be no reason we can't host this image. You may wish to contact the OSU Flickr webmaster to correct their Flickr page with CC-by and attribution to your mother. http://oregonstate.edu/ua/webcomm/contact-osu is the contact page for OSU.--Canoe1967 (talk) 15:53, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

The OTRS may accept a photograph of a hand signed license from your mother. Have her sign:"I took this photo and wish to license under CC-by-3.0 which I have viewed at: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en I understand that anyone can use it for any purpose including commercial and derivatives." Hand write or print that and have her sign it. Then take a picture of it with the photo. Upload the license image first and then over write it with just the image. You could also email the picture of the license if you don't want to upload a copy. Would OTRS accept that?--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:07, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Well OTRS already accepted the email correspondence. Moros y Christianos deleted as he saw the OSU Flickr feed and thought that this was the original image. I corresponded with him and believe that the issue was cleared up. Furthermore the OSU folks already agreed and removed the photo from their feed. So I would assume it would just require someone with some authority, not me, to restore the image file. If the same file is restored, vs. me uploading a new one, I assume the Wikipedia entry will not need to be edited?

You could just upload a new version to the same file name and have Moros y Christianos put an OTRS ticket number on it. Otherwise we would need Commons:Undeletion requests which seems like the long route.--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:42, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Does the fact that I already submitted an undeletion request mess this up? Will there be two versions?

Two versions of an undeletion request shouldn't cause a problem. Many OTRS aren't admin and many admin aren't OTRS. A combination of both is needed to undelete the file. If it were re-uploaded with an OTRS then admin wouldn't be needed. I don't know the best way to do it at this point. I also left a heads up note at User talk:INeverCry the admin that deleted it.--Canoe1967 (talk) 22:07, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you so much Canoe... greatly appreciated. --Sblafren (talk) 22:51, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Proving ownership of images

I seek help in establishing indisputable ownership of several images which have been challenged by copyright editors. One is digital and part of a series I have taken; the others are from 35mm film. I own the originals, which are to hand for rescans, and negatives which can be provided quite quickly (once I rummage through the box they're kept in).

Can anyone advise me how to prove my ownership and if these images can be tagged to indicate such proof has been given? SonofSetanta (talk) 14:26, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

You should be able to upload images of the negatives as proof of authorship. Then just upload the images and over write the negative versions. See the earliest version of File:Kate Jackson 1976.JPG for an example to show evidence of public domain because of no copyright notice. For digital ones just include the exif data. If they were previously published you could probably list them all with one OTRS email ticket number.--Canoe1967 (talk) 22:59, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. One of the problems I have is that the metadata apparently can be altered. I follow you as regards the negatives and I will do that. An e-mail to OTRS has not been replied to. SonofSetanta (talk) 14:35, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

  • What I usually do is: 1) Email them and ask if they wish to provide an image. In the first email I send the url to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:OTRS I ask them to read that over and explain photographer releases and free licenses. 2) If they find the photographer they email me back the image. 3)I upload the image and email them the url to the file. In the same email I ask them have the photographer fill out the form at Commons:OTRS and give them the url to OTRS again. Making sure they include the url or the file name so we can find it. 4) OTRS gets the photographer's email with the file name and does their stuff.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:11, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Duplicate images, one with OTRS, one without.

I've found two identical photos of differing resolutions and want to know what to do with them, usually I'd nominate the lower quality one for deletion, but in this case there's a catch. The higher resolution image was uploaded three days before the lower quality, but the lower quality version has ORTS and the higher doesn't. The images in question are File:Agnes Milowka by James Axford.jpg and File:Agnes Milowka by J Axford.jpg. I hope that someone here can clear up which one should be deleted. I hope this is the right place to bring this up, and thank you in advanced, Liamdavies (talk) 16:51, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Can someone with OTRS permissions follow this up? If the higher resolution image isn't properly licensed it should be deleted. Liamdavies (talk) 13:52, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

This isn't really the right place for such a question (especially as it didn't get its permission through OTRS) - but yes, you need to attribute the authors (steve4710, Debate) and name the URL to the license.

ticket:2006112610003292

Hi, could someone please check up on the status of ticket:2006112610003292 with regards to File:Anencephaly front.jpg. The original source website went down, but apparently, the licensing details for File:Anencephaly front.jpg were logged in this ticket. [15], [16]. Thanks, FASTILY 07:12, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

The ticket is from a Commons contributor, who states that the website say "All images are public domain, courtesy of the photographer"; obviously with the website no longer available, all we have is their word. I'd be inclined to assume good faith unless there's a reson not to or there's a suspicion that the website didn't have permission to release the image.

Possible "work for hire" and thus OTRS not valid?

The file File:Chuck Norris, The Delta Force 1986.jpg has an OTRS ticket which is the basic Israeli translation of the blanket OTRS permission form for the photographer Yoni S.Hamenahem, but according to all evidence he was a studio employee (the official stills photographer for the film) thus any images he produced on set would of been property of the studio as a work for hire (see Israeli copyright law section 34). The OTRS (ticket) does not indicate any permission from the studio for copyright release or address these concerns... should it (and any other similar images from this photographer, like Image:לי_מרוין.jpg and File:סילבסטר סטלונה.jpg) be deleted? — raeky (talk | edits) 22:23, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

  • His page on the Hebrew wiki lists him as an employee of many of these films at that time, including The Delta Force: http://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%99%D7%95%D7%A0%D7%99_%D7%94%D7%9E%D7%A0%D7%97%D7%9D, his IMDB entry lists him in the credits of these movies, so it's pretty clear he was connected to the studio in an official capacity, making it EXTREMELY likely these images were works for hire. — raeky (talk | edits) 22:32, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Still waiting for some response... — raeky (talk | edits) 14:33, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

2012022110002879

Hi! Above ticket is connected to 2 uploads from Katya-Katerina (ArcticCup related) = (example) File:ArcticCup winners.jpg. However this ticket is used also in File:Логотип Arctic Cup.png (non-trivial text logo) uploaded and ticket added by SADtg a few days later. Katya-Katerina too uploaded the logo but the file was deleted. The question is: Does 2012022110002879 cover also the logo upload by SADtg? Gunnex (talk) 18:39, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Confirming ticket:2012022110002879 File:ArcticCup_winners.jpg

This looks like the copyright owner (assuming it was a work-for-hire or however that works in Russia), would be the city of St. Petersburg. I just wanted to confirm that, and find out how broad it was -- does it apply to all the images on their Facebook page, or even all the images on their website? Or does it just apply to the two images uploaded by User:Katya-Katerina? Thanks for your time (and patience dealing with OTRS queries...) JesseW (talk) 03:35, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

File:Portal liviana.JPG

I think the Commons:OTRS tag added to the file is a little bit confusing. It says two things:

  • An email containing details of the permission for this file has been sent ...
  • Please copy the URL of this file in the email to assist OTRS volunteers to find it.

Obviously, if the Commons:OTRS tag was put in the file-page, then the file-URL is already in the email I sent.

Or I didn't correctly understand the tag?. --Createaccount 07:57, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

The first thing is a note to everyone who sees the tag; just a FYI that there can be an email found in the OTRS system (OTRS pending). The second line is one of third which is meant for the uploader: mention the file name in the email so that the OTRS volunteers can connect the OTRS ticket (email) with the associated file page. That's important as we otherwise can't put the tag OTRS confirmed on it. I've found your ticket btw: ticket:2013082210006584, but as I don't speak Spanish I'll leave it to a Spanish volunteer.

ticket #2013070610007169

The lovely article referenced above, "Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia" tells me that "almost all content hosted on Wikimedia Commons may be freely reused subject to certain restrictions in many cases. You do not need to obtain a specific statement of permission from the licensor unless you wish to use the work under different terms than the license states."

Unfortunately, instead of telling me how the image has been licensed, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Edward_Snowden-2.jpg directs me to OTRS, but I am unable to discover how the image is actually licensed.

Although I believe my intended use in a blog article is covered under Fair Use, I prefer to include proper license information when I incorporate other people's images in any of my blogs. I understand you have a 16 day delay in this OTRS system, but I intend to publish the article now. I will properly attribute it, and will check back here periodically to find out what the license actually is.

Permission for several hundred photos

Hello! I have several hundred photos of Wikimania 2013 from a photographer hired by the Wikimedia Foundation, and I also have a letter of permission. How do I set these up without having to template and email each photo? Pardon me if this is explained somewhere and I missed it. Thank you! heather walls (talk) 00:43, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Once there is OTRS ticket, I can add the OTRS template to all the files using my bot. --Jarekt (talk) 02:42, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Thank you Jarekt! What should I do? Request a ticket first or upload the files and use a category? heather walls (talk) 02:45, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
I would upload the files and group them using a category. You can add Template:OTRS pending to each file and/or to the category and send the OTRS email. Once email is processed I can add the templates to the files. --Jarekt (talk) 02:53, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
I've uploaded all the files under Category:Photos_by_Ringo_Chan and sent the request. Thank you again for your help. heather walls (talk) 19:53, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Cannabis Encyclopedia (Gaiduk) Pictures 010.png

The person named as author here, Dmitry Gaiduk, is apparently a contemporary man from Russia. How can such a person be an author of a 1934 photograph from the USA? And who is authorized to give permissions for such images, as evidenced by the OTRS template present (though apparently this is another case of the template being added by a non-OTRS member)? Please have a look if this permission applies at all, it's ticket:2008060110016661. Thanks. --Rosenzweig τ 17:54, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Is there nobody here who can answer that? --Rosenzweig τ 21:08, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
In this ticket from 2008 a person other than Dmitry Gaiduk gives permission to release the "The Encyclopedia of cannabis" (in Russian: "Энциклопедия конопли") under the license {{GFDL 1.2}} and he linked to this and this site (the latter doesn't exist anymore). A Russian OTRS volunteer accepted the permission back then. The photo you mentioned is probably within the encyclopedia, but I'm not sure what to do with it as I don't know whether the permission also applies to the photos (I think it does, but not sure). See Category:Cannabis Encyclopedia (Gaiduk) and the search results for "2008060110016661". I'll ask others for help on the permissions mailing list. Trijnsteltalk 16:02, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
I'd say the best course of action would be to check the actual encyclopedia that was released to find out who took this image. Then we might contact that person directly. Otherwise I think we should require clarification that the person giving permission to use the encyclopedia is actually entitled to release all the content and not only the text. Regards, -- ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 03:08, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
https://olkpeace.org/cannapedia/GajjdukJenciklopedijaKonopli/Anslinger.html is the page with the image. I don't see any photo credit there. --Rosenzweig τ 20:46, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

There has been no new input for a while now. Unless some satisfactory permission comes up, I'll file a deletion request within the next two weeks or so. --Rosenzweig τ 13:56, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Dutch help

I recently received four images by email from a rep of Category:Florentijn Hofman. After I uploaded them I noticed there are many more that may violate COM:FOP for countries they are taken in. This sculptor may be willing to provide a 'blanket' OTRS for photographs of some or all of his works. We would still need the licenses from photographers but there are many on Flickr with CC-by. I am not sure he fully understands the copyright issues involved and someone who speaks Dutch may be able to assist. He may be our first real entry in my fledgling User:Canoe1967/Sculptors. His contact details are on the website in the four images I uploaded http://www.florentijnhofman.nl/ The English email I received was very good and prompt but Dutch may be best. If someone wishes to contact him in that language we can probably host images of more of his works and prevent deletion of existing ones.--Canoe1967 (talk) 16:59, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

I've send an email to the Dutch OTRS mailing list. Maybe someone is willing to help. Trijnsteltalk 09:13, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Has OTRS seen this image?

The image File:Wave-particle.jpg seems like something an OTRS agent should verify. Apparently it was originally posted with a PD declaration, but someone later came along and wrote that the image had originally been made by a personal acquaintance of theirs who agreed to license it CC-BY-SA after a discussion between them. I couldn't find the image online except from places that grabbed it from here, though granted I didn't look terribly hard either.

Either way the copyright status of the image is certainly disputed. Did he ever confirm any of this with an OTRS agent? Is this even the right place for me to ask someone else to verify this? Zellfaze (talk) 22:33, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Template:Attribution-TRGov-Military and Ticket:2012071110005537

Hi, I'm thinking about raising a deletion request for this template and all about 100 images using it, because the is a {{OTRS received}} since more than a year without any progress now. Could an OTRS-volounteer check the ticket and respond if it is valid, invalid or whatever? Thx. --JuTa 21:16, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

As far as I understand the Turkish via Google Translate, this does not seem to be valid, because it doesn't even specified which (kind of) files are involved, nor does it specify a license. OTRS received for more than a year doesn't need a DR I think. Speedy deletion seems ok. Jcb (talk) 22:10, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Thx Jcb, could you do those deletions because you are admin and OTRS-member? --JuTa 22:48, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
✓ Done - Jcb (talk) 23:33, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Please undelete the template and hold off deletions. I am trying to sort out this mess with the community. There indeed is a problem I am told though I do not have OTRS access to verify it. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:19, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
The ticket is not OK, not even close. Normally we grant one month to sort things out. More than a year has passed in this case. I see no reason to undelete anything before everything is allright. Jcb (talk) 13:37, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I know that. I was the one pointing out the problem with this. Please undelete it so I can talk about the process with my peers properly. Also please provide a list of the files that were tagged with it prior to their mass deletion. Furthermore, if nothing else it should be kept as a speedy deletion template pointing out this discussion. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 20:28, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I do not have a list of those files. You can construct it from my logs if you like. Jcb (talk) 23:19, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I am quite baffled why OTRS members are using google translate rather than the readily available native speakers to sort out language specific issues. This act of jumping the gun with less than 4 hours of discussion seems like a very problematic avenue to follow.
1) Please undelete the template as soon as possible as it should be kept even if it is invalid. Mind that the issue with the license came to my attention less than a week ago and I am trying to sort it out.
2) Please take responsibility as an administrator and list the files you have deleted in connection with this. This page would be sufficient for you to list them. You should not just ignore ongoing COM:DEL discussions and follow the process thoroughly. The very act of figuring out where the files were actually used is going to be a nightmare.
-- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 16:30, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
In accordance with our procedures, we speedy delete any file with incomplete OTRS for more than a month. These files and this template had incomplete OTRS for more than a year, so I deleted them. That's it for now. Jcb (talk) 18:15, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
I am NOT contesting their deletions. I am asking for information from the deleted pages. If possible please undelete the file description pages without the actual files. That would also fix the issue for me as I will have all the information I need to seek the relevant OTRS permissions. Also please undelete the template itself as it does not meet criteria for speedy deletion. It is not a valid license and it should be marked as such with the relevant page history. None of these items I mentioned have copyright issues and I cannot understand why you insist on keeping them deleted. These pages had been marked with an OTRS confirmed for about a year now. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 00:14, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
I'm not going to undelete anything. That's it. Jcb (talk) 16:22, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

The template reads This section is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, replace this template with your comment. I disagree. I do NOT want you to undelete the files. I am asking you to undelete the license template (Template:Attribution-TRGov-Military) AND the file description pages WITHOUT the files since you refused to provide me a list & metadata. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 22:44, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

ticket:2013052310008773

We have 334 files in Category:Files from News Øresund Flickr stream whose file descriptions, Flickr descriptions and metadata all appear to prohibit derivative works: "Bilden får ej manipuleras"/"Photo manipulation is not allowed"). It would appear that News Øresund has universally chosen the wrong license, instead intending to use {{cc-by-nd-2.0}}, which is not accepted on Commons. Does the OTRS ticket do anything to address this problem? LX (talk, contribs) 19:52, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, after an explanation by an OTRS colleague about this issue, they responded: "The CC-By-2.0 license is correct for our photos." - Jcb (talk) 20:32, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, so then we should probably:
  • Create a custom licensing tag explaining that, contrary to the description on Flickr, manipulation is allowed.
  • Have a bot scrub the EXIF, add the tag and remove the contradictory statements from the file descriptions.

Military badges

I'm uploading a considerable number of military badges. Most at [Category:Replaceable non-free use to be decided after 28 August 2013]. All of them are free use files with attribution to the gentleman who took the pictures and donated the images to the wiki. I've e-mailed permissions for a ticket number for this chap's images a couple of times but have had no reply. Can someone advise me what I should do please because some of the earlier ones I did have now had OTRS Pending on them for around a month and I'm going to feel a bit silly if the copyright enforcers come down on me for not having a permission ticket number. SonofSetanta (talk) 07:14, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Ticket #2013081910005939

I reuploaded File:9th 12th Royal Lancers Badge.jpg from the main wiki. Including copying the OTRS ticket number from the original. I now see the message "(Tag: OTRS permission added by non-OTRS member)" appended to the edit summary. Can anyone tell me if this is because I have made a booboo or is it just an alert for copyright enforcers to check it? SonofSetanta (talk) 15:40, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Need Italian speaker to check ticket

In relation to ticket:2006111410007364 we need to have this verified that the usage does definitely include commercial and derivative works, rather than just use for Wikipedia. This will affect images in Category:Images from Presidency of Italian Republic. Need an Italian speaker to verify this ticket, otherwise we might need to take them to DR. russavia (talk) 05:41, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

After (repeated) explanation about free licenses, the statement is: "Le confermo che è suffiiente indicare: fonte Presidenza della Repubblica, senza copyright", which means: "I confirm that it is sufficient to indicate: source Presidency of the Republic, without copyright". This sounds like {{attribution}}. If it would have been in 2013 I would ask for a clearer statement, but for a 2006 ticket, with all the explanation given by the requester, I think this is well within the standards of those days.

Received email regarding File:Merrill Anderson filing.jpg?

Hi, OTRS volunteers. There was a mix-up the first time around when File:Merrill Anderson filing.jpg was uploaded maybe a month or so ago. The rightsholder never submitted the OTRS permission to me (under the assumption that he was going to submit it directly to the permissions email) so I uploaded the image, thinking all would be well. It was rightly deleted after a month because he hadn't in fact submitted anything, so I asked him and he basically said he'd been confused about it. After clarification, I'm led to believe that he has now sent an email with the requisite permissions to you directly and I've got two questions: 1) have you received any such permissions regarding this file? I believe the text of the permissions email references the URL directly, "http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Merrill_Anderson_filing.jpg". I also acknowledge that it may not yet be twenty days since it was submitted and if you don't feel inclined to check something that's not at the bottom of the backlog, that's just fine. 2) Should I reupload the image prior to its OTRS confirmation? I feel a little obligated to the rightsholder, a candidate for mayor with a looming election, who has been very patient with the process if at times not completely savvy and who has been willing to help and contribute at every step of the process. Thanks for any guidance! Best, Bobamnertiopsis (talk) 22:49, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Be careful with OTRS tickets for Computron uploads

Hi all, I am checking the uploads of Computron and found out that several OTRS tickets belonging to his uploads, only contain permission from the depicted person who, probably unfamiliar with copyright regulations, assumes to be the copyright holder. No name or permission of the real copyright holder (=photographer) is mentioned in the tickets. This user is presurizing OTRS agents at IRC and he already caused several OTRS agents to make the mistake to accept these wrong permissions. Please be careful!

Do these tickets actually apply to these images?:


The OTRS tags were added by the uploader, a non-OTRS member. The second file is by a Dutch artist, but for some reason is included in the category Category:Images by Leningradartist and uses the OTRS ticket number that applies to this group of images, even though this category appears to include only "Paintings and Artists from the Leningrad School", and the rest of the files in the category appear to have been uploaded by User:Leningradartist. Additionally, the last four are derivatives of the third one, but have different ticket numbers from it.

The user has tagged other uploads as PD without providing the date of their creation, has licensed other files CC-BY-SA with no evidence of permission, and appears to have uploaded a copyvio he/she claims to be the creator of. All rather odd.

--Rrburke (talk) 16:50, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi. All tickets except this one: 2010032110008071 do not exist. The existing ticket covers files coming from leningradartist.com. So most likely alll images are copyvios. are you going to tag them? Amada44  talk to me 17:07, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Since you are legally required to credit the author, it's good to hear that you would. You are also required to comply with the other license requirements, such as providing a link to the license or a copy of it. See Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia and the license terms. But since all that information is present on the file description page, I'm guessing 120.61.40.216 was looking for confirmation that the information in the OTRS system actually checks out, which only an OTRS volunteer can answer.

Something's strange going on with that ticket. The latest emails shouldn't belong to that ticket imho which is why I didn't reply yet. Ping Jcb. Trijnsteltalk 13:00, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
As I mentioned above ticket:2012010510013998 is very hard to verify since there are ~150 emails exchanges with Georges BIARD discussing over 2000 images, and 20 emails about an odd-ball File:Helmut Fritz.jpg that does not seems related. I checked ~500 images on that ticket and all, other than File:Helmut Fritz.jpg, were uploaded by user:JJ Georges. I assume uploads by other users are copyright violations. I also searched for "Kamel" in all OTRS database and none of the hits were associated with this ticket. --Jarekt (talk) 15:35, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
That ticket applies to photos of Georges Biard, which are uploaded by JJ Georges.
The other uploads of Helmut Fritz etc doesn't seem to be related, but I don't get why they are in the ticket of JJ Georges. Trijnsteltalk 16:10, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

At second thought, there are two issues here:

1. The permission of File:Helmut Fritz.jpg is in ticket:2012010510013998, which is strange imho since it's a completely different author etc.
2. It looks like User:JGeorges is someone else than User:JJ Georges, so I think all uploads of JGeorges might be invalid/copyvios.

With regards, Trijnsteltalk 16:14, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

The Helmut Fritz message was a wrong merge by a volunteer I think. I propose to mark those JGeorges files as 'no permission'. Jcb (talk) 18:58, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
I see they have been deleted in the meantime, so resolved. Jcb (talk) 19:01, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Two tickets

Can some OTRS volunteer please confirm if ticket:2013061810009691 is a valid one for File:Рыбалка.jpg and File:Первомайский митинг ЛДПР.jpg as both files are by a new uploader whose account was created today on 20 June itself?

Also, is it possible to check if there were any emails received regarding File:100 with newly-weds in Montreal.jpg. Please note in this image, the claimed author/copyright holder of the work "Atul Gurtu" is in the pic himself. I also cannot see any metadata associated with the file. Thanks in advance. Rahul Bott (talk) 08:20, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

The answers to your questions:
1) Looks OK. The uploader mentioned the files via their external links ([17], [18]) and the OTRS volunteer instructed him to post the permissions template on the uploads.
2) I've found OTRS ticket:2013062110001594 for File:100 with newly-weds in Montreal.jpg and hi:File:Atul Gurtu.png, though it's not fully processed yet.
Hope this helps. With regards, Trijnsteltalk 08:49, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Trijnstel, thanks for your reply. I think the first case is over now. As for second one, since you mentioned hi:File:Atul Gurtu.png, I noticed that the file has been licensed for use on Wikipedia only. As such, I am more curious if the OTRS permissions are also similar. Is it possible to disclose here what the email says? Moreover at its present state, the hi.wiki file becomes an invalid fair-use file being one with a restricted, WMF-incompatible license and that of a living person. Isn't it so? Rahul Bott (talk) 13:09, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
In the ticket Atul Gurtu claims to be the copyright holder and he gives permission to use the two files under the CC-BY-SA-3.0 (+GFDL) license.
I guess you're right about the fair use file. See en:WP:FAIRUSE for the full guideline on the English Wikipedia. Maybe it's helpful. Trijnsteltalk 12:18, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
But is that not a problem as Atul Gurtu himself is in the pic (rightmost gentleman)? Rahul Bott (talk) 15:39, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

User adding "PermissionOTRS" to their own uploads

Hi, User:Tambo is adding {{PermissionOTRS}} to his/her own uploads. I tried to explain to him/her that the template is intended to be used by OTRS members only, but s/he is en-0 and I am hu-0, so I had to use google translation and I really don't know how much of my message was left after that …

However, it would be nice if someone could make sure that everything's alright with those permissions/templates. Thanks, --El Grafo (talk) 14:21, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, can someone confirm me if ticket:2010081110004361 is a valid license for this logo? So the ticket gives permission only to be displayed at Women's team article despite of being the same logo (the Kangaroo figure) used by Men's national team, which is tagged as a non-free image. Thanks - Fma12 (talk) 13:58, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Its a really, really weak permission. Basically it looks like uploader sent the mail to otrs with the license form filled out. There is an email address given from rugby.com.au. I'll write them. Amada44  talk to me 15:42, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Ticket 2013110610017561

Could other OTRS members please review ticket 2013110610017561 and the related File:Patent coat of arms graf von luxburg.png? This is a work of the Luxburg Foundation (see that page's header), which clearly has a @luxburgfoundation.com domain, as seen on its contact page. I wonder, then, why were are accepting an email with a @gmail.com domain, which can be created by absolutely anyone. Further, the user who sent that email has sockpuppeted related to licensing of this and other images, suggesting an additional degree of skepticism is warranted. It seems to me this is an invalid ticket and that its restoration was improper. Эlcobbola talk 16:35, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

I would also say that this ticket is not good enough. The claim to own the copyright is not supported by any proof. Also two authors are mentioned who colorized the coat of arms. The original coat of arms is PD (File:GvL-Wappen.jpg) So we can just use that. Amada44  talk to me 18:17, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello Artist DiezelSun confirms the use of the pictures. We've sent you an email, we can send another. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vacumis (talk • contribs) 09:48, 25 November 2013‎ (UTC)

Attention. By the participant of the OTRS service revealed act of aggression, it is not clear reason for the affixing of the dice, to remove, when official permission was given to use pictures. It is probably made to remove the article specifically. Quit stalking and to set the dice on the deletion. Artist DiezelSun allowed to use these files, but aggression and harassment by one participant continued. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vacumis (talk • contribs) 11:11, 25 November 2013‎ (UTC)

Verbal permission

What to do if one gets a verbal permission to use a file under a free license? In one case, my camera's battery died while I was taking pictures for Wikipedia, so a friend took the remainder picture or two for me, then gave them to me so I could upload the entire batch to Wikipedia. I never asked him for written OTRS permission. It was almost 10 years ago, and there are issues with identifying the author, and our memories confirming that the incident took place (as in, my friend tells me I can use the image under a free license if it is his, but hardly remembers taking it). Do we have some type of good faith OTRS template for such incidents? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 04:05, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

I am not sure if this is proper but in the situation where I set up the image and a friend presses the button on my camera I use joint authorship and I pick the license after getting a verbal OK. Your situation might be similar. --Jarekt (talk) 14:56, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
I never accept claims about verbal permission. Jcb (talk) 18:59, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, your statement about the circumstances should be fine as evidence. A verbal transfer is perfectly reasonable and legally meaningful, so long as the circumstances do not introduce significant doubt (such as highly professional looking photos, which would lead us to ask further questions). There is always a factor of good faith, if OTRS volunteers doubted everything, there would be no point in having OTRS. -- (talk) 19:07, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Proposal for NEW Access to nonpublic information policy

Hello dear OTRS colleagues,

I want to draw your attention to the new Draft of the Access to nonpublic information policy that is put up for discussion on Meta DRAFT Access to nonpublic information policy "This draft Access to Nonpublic Information Policy needs your feedback. We will be accepting community comment until 15 January 2014. We look forward to comments on any aspect of the draft."

This is important for OTRS supporters, since draft of the new rules contains

  1. sending foto ID to WMF
  2. sending adress / residence to WMF
  3. legal impact of agreeing to a confidentiality pledge
  4. WMF announcement to store PhotoID and residence data for 3 years after end of access (retention)

is discussed on the related discussion page.
