2004 knigi008 a.jpg[edit]

Dear Editor, I was very surprised to receive a notification: "File:2004 knigi008 a.jpg has been marked as a possible copyright violation. [...] The file you added has been deleted." After further search I found out that: "14:58, 21 April 2012 Polarlys (talk | contribs) deleted page File:2004 knigi008 a.jpg (Copyright violation, see Commons:Licensing) (global usage; delinker log)." Why was I not asked first, if there was such absurd suspicion? How did Polarlys came to this conclusion? If you regularly treat your contributors' time and effort in this disrespectful way you are not doing justice to Wikipedia's prestige and reliability. Someone seems to have acted on presumption, unless we differ on the semantics of the word "possible". There is no copyright violation for this image and I would like to kindly ask you to undelete the file. I take this opportunity to express my regret that such complicated procedures and unjustified actions are not encouraging contribution to what once started as a beautiful idea of freely shared knowledge. — Preceding unsigned comment added by D bardarsky (talk • contribs) 15:38, 21.

Did you design the book cover or did you just take a photo of it? If it is the second thing, there is an issue called derivative works where you cannot take a photo of a copyrighted object and put that photo under a free license. Plus, the persons who tagged it as a copyright violation is correct that book covers are copyrighted for the most part (especially more recent books). So unless you designed the cover or got specific statement of permission (like Creative Commons) from the publisher, we cannot have it here. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 19:07, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

File:Elektrit Logo.png[edit]

The file is my own work and was deleted erroneously. JohnnyWiki (talk) 16:08, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

I tend to restore per {{PD-textlogo}}, objections? →Nagy 16:30, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
(Edit conflict)If an image is retraced to match a copy righted work it is considered a derivative work. Do you know when the logo was first published? Depending on the time and country where it was first created it may be public domain. Do you want me to move the image to Wikipedia as fair use in an article? If yes, what article? MorganKevinJ(talk) 16:34, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
The logo itself was first published in city of Vilnius (which was Poland until 1939 and Lithuania afterwards) in 1926. It was the logo of a company that existed from 1925 to 1939, and destroyed by WW2. No traces are left who created the logo. Some years ago I drew the graphics myself taking the original 1926 logo as the example. -- Please let me know (1) who is copyright holder in this case, and (2) how should I properly tag the file so the copyright is not violated. Thanks. - JohnnyWiki (talk) 16:44, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
The company would be the copyright owner. But... unless there was a particular human artist named, it would have been anonymous authorship, and {{Anonymous-EU}} would therefore apply (copyright lasts 70 years after publication), so it should be OK. Both Poland and Lithuania had 50 years from publication as the anonymous term on the URAA date, so its U.S. copyright would not have been restored either. If the human designer of the logo is known, then the term is 70 years after they died. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:07, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
(1) The human designer is not known,
(2) the original copyright holder was the company,
(3) the company ceased to exist, its property was looted and bombed, and the owner fled and never came back.
The question: whom should I ask for permission?? - JohnnyWiki (talk) 17:52, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
If the human designer is not known, then great. Use the {{Anonymous-EU}} tag, and it should be fine. If that's the case, then Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. Seems like the most reasonable assumption. Carl Lindberg (talk) 18:58, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Discussed at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Air Force Office of Special Investigations report of investigative activity -- summary of February 2003 interrogation video.pdf.

I uploaded the file, without realizing the USAF had included some pages prepared by Canadian officials. IMO the Canadian portion should have been removed and the DoD pages should have been retained.

The closing administrator seemed to agree -- but nevertheless deleted the whole file, saying "if somebody wants to remove the Canadian part, please let me know and I will undelete the file".

File:Schematische Zeichnung einer Hundewaschanlage mit Komponenten der Firma DARADO GmbH.jpg [edit]

I am requesting the undeletion of the following file: "Schematische Zeichnung einer Hundewaschanlage mit Komponenten der Firma DARADO GmbH.jpg" (yes, it is a German filename). I have permission of the author of this picture to use this picture freely on Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia. Without gaining permission I would not have uploaded it to this website. This picture is nowhere to be found on the internet, because it was created for the purpose of illustration of the following Wikipedia Article: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hundewaschanlage If I do have to provide a permission for the upload of this picture I will provide it.

File talk:Hopperstad drawing.jpg [edit]

Drawing from 1878 with unknown author, can't really see any good reason for deleting it. Jeblad (talk) 15:49, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

The file was deleted for having no source to say where the image came from online. If we could find that, it could be easily be restored. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 16:01, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Hm. It was uploaded here in 2005; really, such things should go through regular DRs instead of speedys. The requirements weren't nearly as documented then. We don't necessarily need the direct online source, but a source to show 1878 publication (or thereabouts) would be helpful. Basically, to show that this was an old drawing, not a modern drawing showing it as it was in 1878. Also, to back up the unknown artist thing. Is there a source reference? The file had a proper PD-Art tag on it, per Google cache. I see a version here, but I don't think that's the original source, and there is no further source info there. The existing license tag was completely believable... I don't think it should have been speedied, and would support undeletion at the very least just to go through a DR.

File:Polish TV (Telewizja Polska) logo 1952-1992.png[edit]

The deleted file features the logo of Polish TV. It is the same logo as in File:Logo TP Lodz.png which is on Commons since 2008. The difference is that the deleted file was created from the logo shown on TV, and File:Logo TP Lodz.png was created from the logo displayed on a building. -- The deleter does not reply to my inquiry for clarification. - JohnnyWiki (talk) 18:36, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

In the upload, you claim the logo to be an own work but the logo was done by Telewizja Polska. We have to find out where the logo came from (in the terms of publication) because it could meet http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:PD-Polish. However, to say still that this was an own work is not true at all. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 19:31, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
If it helps: the logo in the deleted file was made from a photograph that I took off a TV screen in Poland in 1984. - JohnnyWiki (talk) 19:46, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
I've examined the laws mentioned in http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:PD-Polish - Art. 3 of copyright law of March 29, 1926, and Art. 2 of copyright law of July 10, 1952. They speak only about "works of photography or similar to photography" which are exempted if they don't have copyright notice on them. However, in this case the logo was first drawn on paper (in 1952, TV logos were drawn on paper). So, in this case http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:PD-Polish does not apply, right? - JohnnyWiki (talk) 21:31, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
That assumes if the program you got it from doesn't have a copyright notice. But from looking at the discussion below, I do not have a lot of confidence in restoring this image. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 21:34, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Me too. Thanks for the explanation. - JohnnyWiki (talk) 21:43, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Taking pictures of public things can be a bit different when extracting the pure artwork, and not simply depicting it in its public context via photograph -- see Commons:Freedom of panorama#Poland, which explains why the photograph itself is OK. Poland did increase their terms to 50 years in 1994, and then retroactively from 50 to 70 years in 2003, so if copyrightable the logo is still under Polish copyright (presuming first publication in 1952) until 2023. The photograph is fine, although the law also makes clear you can't copy a public work for its original purpose -- i.e. you can't make a sculpture of a public sculpture, or a photograph solely of a public photograph, and can't draw a logo and call it yours even though it exists in public. If you added your own copyrightable expression to the work, at best it would be derivative (while technically "own work", as a derivative the copyright owner of the underlying work can prevent distribution). The only chance is if the original logo is not copyrightable at all... given U.S. law, it probably is not copyrightable (see Commons:Threshold of originality), but most European countries have a different standard when it comes to that, and I have no idea about Poland. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:41, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
So if I upload the photograph of the screen as I took it in 1984, and not a drawing derived from that photo, is it OK then? How should I tag it then? Thanks for your effort to explain, Carl. - JohnnyWiki (talk) 19:51, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
No; TV programs etc. are works of their own (someone else's video/photography), so that would be a derivative work too. Commons:Freedom of panorama is generally for works in public (streets, buildings, etc.) and also usually must be there permanently. Obviously, the photograph itself has a copyright and must be licensed -- the right mentioned on that page (which can be different country-by-country) is just for the people taking the photographs; it doesn't mean you can just use someone else's photograph. (Basically, in that one particular case, it's an exception from the usual derivative rights rule). I'm sure the logo would be fair use on local wikipedias, if the article is discussing the logos. But Commons can't host files which just rely on fair use. It's possible the logo is too simple for copyright, but I have no idea if there have been any court cases to give guidance on that for Poland. Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:56, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

File:Burgee of nyyc.svg[edit]

It is my understanding that the New York Yacht Club has requested their logo be removed a number of times in the past via OTRS. The file in question, File:Burgee of nyyc.svg has been deleted twice in accordance with OTRS tickets 2007041110012213 and 2007120410011436. It certainly appears that it is indeed their Trademark, but it also appears the copyright has expired, since the logo was first published before 1923. At the NYYC website at [2] it states "The 1845 annual meeting at Windhams Tavern produced not only the first full slate of officers and the club burgee...". In a discussion of this file with Moonriddengirl, an admin on en.wikipedia, she said "the correspondent in the second letter, oddly, agrees with your 1844 date but still seems to think its under copyright". It seems to be a "Trademarked/public-domain image" and it says here that "Trademarked images on Wikipedia that do not rise to the level of copyright (i.e., "public domain" trademarks), are considered "free" content for licensing purposes." The image was however missing the {{PD-1923}} and {{trademarked}} templates that would've made the status more clear.

In a discussion with the deleting admin User:Bastique, he encouraged me to file this undeletion request to "get some clarity on the copyright status from the community" and says here "It seems someone is confusing trademark enforcement with copyright infringement. In any case, it should be perfectly eligible to be on Commons." So, was the OTRS action by the NYYC just an overzealous attempt at Trademark enforcement?

Even if there were some sort of copyright still in force somehow, for fair use rationale, how is this logo any different than w:File:New_York_Jets_logo.svg for example? It seems that this logo can be used, at least on en Wikipedia, and at least in some circumstances. Or is there some aspect I'm missing here? Mojoworker (talk) 02:23, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

The burgee (flag) of the club has been around at least before 1923, as evidenced by this 1917 publishing of the bylaws of the NYCC. Page 147 of the bylaws has the design of the burgee, which was a blue triangular flag with a red cross upon which a white star is overlaid. The design is public domain by age and also by simplicity. I think what happened was the copyright that was placed on the image by the uploaders was on their own specific renditions and not on the burgee itself. I feel the burgee can be restored and marked with a trademark/insignia template and also marked to where it is public in the United States due to age. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 02:43, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Um... yeah, that was obviously published before 1923, and really is not eligible for copyright to begin with (too simple) I don't even think the insignia tag would apply (don't think there is a special law protecting it). It is a registered trademark, but there is no copyright. It should not have been deleted, from what I see. Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:51, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
I don't remember the deletion request, but from what I can see, the reason cited was because the uploader was claiming copyright/or release permission on something he/she clearly did not have permission for. I certainly have no objection to it being undeleted. Bastique ☎ appelez-moi! 04:05, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Didn't mean it as a criticism -- it was five years ago :-) There is some chance the SVG could be considered to have a small copyright as a derivative work -- more likely in some countries (UK) than others, so the "self work" and license (I can't see the deleted versions) was not necessarily in error and could actually be helpful for some re-users. Interesting case, but the copyright aspect seems pretty clear-cut. Carl Lindberg (talk) 06:34, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
What I did was I redid the SVG image, using the specifications provided by the NYYC, and I made it to where the NYCC was the author of the burgee and other information to show it was not made out of thin air (but also establish the usage date was before 1923). I uploaded it under a new name and turned this into a redirect since if two uploads by the same guy have the same problems, wanted to try something completely new. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 07:38, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Sure, seems reasonable. You may want to add something to the effect of "In countries where my SVG work may be considered copyrightable, I release those changes to the public domain" (if that is indeed your intention), to make clear for re-users in countries with a low copyright threshold. May also consider adding a PD-ineligible tag, but up to you. But this seems like a good way to go overall. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:39, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

File:MP Undercover Patrol Vehicle (Chevrolet Tahoe).jpg[edit]

Please undelete this photograph... yes you found it on a flikr user page but that does not mean anything. That flikr user page belongs to my co-worker and I am the one that took this photo and gave it to him. This should not have been deleted without first checking with me, "assuming" something does not constitute a "copyright violation". Yes I "retouched" it, to take the date from my camera out of it.

Unfortunately, accounts here are essentially anonymous, so if an image exists elsewhere on the web, there is no way to tell if the user account here is really associated with the image or simply copied from an internet source. Normally we assume good faith, but there have been too many copyright violations to follow that same policy when it comes to internet-available pictures. The options in this case would be to 1) upload the image at a higher resolution than is possible to get at the Flickr source (showing you have access to the original), 2) have your co-worker change the license on the Flickr site (this is easiest; you have to use CC-BY or CC-BY-SA; any CC license with a "NC" or "ND" component is not acceptable here), 3) change the Flickr image descriptions on at least one of them, or have the flickr account owner add a comment on one of them, to indicate that your user account here is in fact the owner of the images, and therefore any licenses given by that account here are OK, or 4) figure out a way to send an email from an account somehow connected to the flickr user's account (not sure how to do that; I think flickrmail is internal only) following the instructions at COM:OTRS, in which case the images would be undeleted by OTRS volunteers once they process it. We need some sort of additional confirmation that you are the copyright owner, or at the very least the copyright owner has granted the license. This may be frustrating, but it is to protect copyright owners from having their work unknowingly copied. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:37, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

File:MP Patrol Vehicle (Chevrolet Tahoe).jpg[edit]

Please undelete this photograph. Yes you found it on a flikr page but that flikr page is my co-workers. Is it not possible that I am the one that indeed did take the photograph. Do not just automatically delete photographs from here just because you find them somewhere else on the internet. If you are going to delete something, the onus is on you to prove there is a copyright violation... you cannot just assume there is because the same picture can be found somewhere else on the internet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DarkKomodo (talk • contribs)

Sorry, but you have it backward. Here on Commons, you have to prove that your images are under a free license, or in the public domain. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:13, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
As it states at Commons:Licensing, "Wikimedia Commons accepts only media that are explicitly freely licensed, or that are in the public domain in at least the United States and in the source country of the work."

File:Sambhavana-dot-com.jpg[edit]

This is the front cover art for the book 'Sambhavana Dot Com' written by Shailesh Bharatwasi. The book cover art copyright is believed to belong to the publisher, Hind Yugm Publication or the cover artist. We were little bit confused while uploading this file that how one can show copyright of a cover image of the book. Please don't delete it. If any of your reviewer can read Hindi then he/she can read the text of cover image. It belongs to this book.

File:Is ip2v9115a.jpg [edit]

it's my foto! im the owner of this picture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vitalshown (talk • contribs) 11:23, April 28, 2012 (UTC)

The image was deleted because it was apparently a copy of this image. In turn, that is a slight crop (removing the watermarked credit) of an image on this gallery page of Paulina Wycichowska's website, by a photographer named Adam Ciereszko (who has a website here). User:Vitalshown then edited pl:Paulina Wycichowska, adding the image and other information. Article looks like it was created mostly by a single IP editor, though the article itself has been there a while. No matter what, since this is an image already published on the internet, we need independent confirmation of the license. So... if User:Vitalshown is in fact the photographer Adam Ciereszko, then please send an email using the instructions on COM:OTRS, and specifying the free license which you would like to use. The email should be sent from the gmail address seen on Ciereszko's contact page. If User:Vitalshown is Paulina Wycichowska herself, then first read pl:Wikipedia:Tworzenie artykułów o własnej osobie, and be very careful about editing articles about yourself. We would need a confirmation that the photographer did transfer all copyrights to you, otherwise you are not the copyright owner and cannot license the photo. If a copyright transfer did take place, then again please send an email per the instructions at COM:OTRS, confirming the copyright transfer, specifying the license, and using an email address associated with Paulina Wycichowska. Once the emailed permission is received and confirmed by the OTRS team, only then can the photo be undeleted. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:22, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

I know this is not a "text only" logo, but it doesn't mean it can't be a common file.

File:Content, c1983, by Beohar Rammanohar Sinha.JPG[edit]

It will be much appreciated if this file is UNDELETED and restored because –

(1) The artist (painter) Beohar Rammanohar Sinha (1929-2007) was my father, (2) Following his death, I have solely lawfully inherited all his artworks and paintings by way of his WILL which unambiguously authorizes me to handle and use them whichever way I feel appropriate, (3) Even during his lifetime, I was managing all his artworks as <abrsinha@yahoo.co.uk>, (4) Without imposing any conditions, or restricting anyone’s rights, but purely to keep a track of image/file usage outside Wiki, the phrase “Seek consent from <abrsinha@yahoo.co.uk>…” has been inserted. I fully realize that this doesn’t mean much because the uploaded media is now in public domain and freely reproducible.

Hope that my upload(s) will soon be restored. Many thanks. Abrsinha (talk) 13:35, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

  • We take an extra conditions added to the license pretty seriously no matter the likelihood of others following them; if those conditions mean the works would be considered "non-free" then we would delete them. Generally, any image which requires contacting the copyright owner is considered non-free, as it does not conform to the necessary terms in Commons:Licensing. It can be asked for as a courtesy, but can not be a required condition, as it needs to be possible for files here to be freely re-used without contacting anyone further (provided one complies with the other terms of the license of course, typically attribution of the author). [Among several other reasons, copyright on those paintings will last until 2078 in many countries, and it's unlikely that email address will be valid that entire time, meaning it will be impossible to legally re-use those files at all once the address goes away and permission cannot be obtained, etc.] That condition will have to be relaxed if the works are to be undeleted. Secondly, it would be best to confirm your identity by sending a message from your yahoo address to the one mentioned on COM:OTRS, and confirming the image licenses. Lastly, the copyright situation should probably be explained better; the author should be explicitly listed as Beohar Rammanohar Sinha, with a mention that the license is provided by the heirs. I see someone created a {{CC-BY-SA-3.0-heirs}} template recently... we should probably regularize that by having a "heirs" wrapper template rather than duplicating all of our other tags with a "-heirs" version, but at the moment it really just needs to be documented in the Permission field. Also, if the OTRS message is sent, that could be referenced on all the images by using the appropriate tag and OTRS number which gets assigned. Lastly, were all works actually done by your father? A couple of those works sound like portraits which would have been authored by someone else, thus the copyright may not be yours to license; without further information those may have to stay deleted. (If it was a family portrait, that would be different of course.) Lastly... is there an online source to these artwork images at the uploaded resolutions, or were they your personal files which you were uploading here the first time? I do see this page on saatchionline.com, but I'm not sure those are the same resolution. If they are available elsewhere, OTRS communication is a definite requirement.

Estimado Señor:

En atención a su solicitud, muy cortésmente le remito las diferentes versiones digitalizadas del Escudo Nacional, cuyo modelo principal se exhibe en el Salón de Reuniones del Consejo de Gobierno de la segunda planta del Palacio Nacional, realizado en base a los lineamientos establecidos por un decreto del Presidente Interino, Dr. Adolfo Nouel, el 6 de febrero del año 1913, y que fuera incluido y descrito en la reciente Reforma Constitucional (2010).

Las referidas versiones de nuestro Escudo se utilizan, con variaciones mínimas, en documentos del Estado y en las monedas y billetes desde el año 1983.

Es nuestra esperanza de que esta pequeña contribución sirva para que logremos unificar el diseño de nuestro Símbolo Patrio en los diferentes estamentos del Estado antes de la Celebración de su Centenario en el año 2013.

Con sentimientos de aprecio y estima, le saluda,

Muy atentamente,

Señor Miguel,

Disculpe tengo que molestarle nuevamente.

De acuerdo con las leyes de propiedad intelectual, para yo poder utilizar esta foto, usted tendría que cambiar la licencia de la misma. Actualmente tiene una licencia "All rights reverted" lo que impide que pueda ser utilizada en wikipedia. Le agradeceria si pudiese cambiar la licencia a una "creative commons" la cual permite su distribución libre en la red.

Hay varios tipos de licencia "creative commons" Hay algunas que permiten la que se edite su obra y otras que solo permiten que la obra sea distribuida. Cualquiera de las licencias vasta para poder ser utilizada. En este articulo (en ingles) puede ver mas acerca de los tipos de licencias "creative commons": http://creativecommons.org/licenses/

We As Human[edit]

I would like to open an undeletion discussion about an article I created about the band We As Human. File:We As Human.jpeg I can prove that they meet the WP:MUSIC, WP:GNG & WP:BAND criteria. They are a very notable rock band signed to a MAJOR music label (Atlantic Records) and have been on national television for years, i.e., xbox commercials, music channels, television interviews on frequent rotation, etc. They recently finished the winterjam Tour that afterwards took the #1 position on the tour charts - which meet the WP:GOODCHARTS criteria - for the first quarter! http://instagr.am/p/JQWDcpCnmU/

I'm not sure why this article was actually deleted. The researched cited in the deletion discussion was poor and unfounded at best. I feel it is mostly discriminatory since We As Human is known as a christian band. This was, I believe, a simple case of poor wikipedian academics and anti-religious bigotry

Revert mass deletion of Sridhar Babu Peram's files[edit]

User:Sridhar Babu Peram was blocked as a sock (User:Sridhar1000, User:Sridhar100 etc.) and almost all his files were mass deleted. Many of them usable and savable under PD-art and PD-India. The user/his socks had inserted his files widely in English Wikipedia Hinduism related articles, improving them. I requested some of the files, I remembered or found red linked in Wikipedia, to be undeleted to Mattbuck, the admin who did the mass deleted (User_talk:Mattbuck#Mass_deletion_of_Sridhar_Babu_Peram.27s_files). It is difficult to create a comprehensive list of useful files. I suggest that all files be undeleted and then we delete on a case-to-case basis. I will go through the files and tag them.

There is no copyright violation! The picture used in http://www.diarioelvenezolano.com.ve/?p=24273 is not the original one!! It's an artwork that has been created from my original picture ! (Casd00 (talk) 18:06, 10 May 2012 (UTC))

I assume you mean File:Abraham Mateo Canal Sur.jpg? That was uploaded in March 2012, while the image at the above URL was uploaded in April.

File:HLPverse.png[edit]

I request undeletion of File:HLPverse.png because it was deleted for no good reason.

I created File:HLPverse.png in June 2010 for my wiki based on logos created by the Valve Corporation (original file), but that are not copyrighted, since once is the Lambda letter, the other is a simple aperture shape. In October, File:HalfLife Portal Logo.svg, which is based on my creation, was uploaded here. Then I uploaded here File:HLPverse.png, since I thought the original version might as well be used. Then mine was deleted, but not File:HalfLife Portal Logo.svg. So there is no reason for deleting my logo while keeping the other, based on my creation. Both can stay or both must be deleted, keeping only one makes no sense. If one has to stay, it is mine, since this is I who came up with the idea of putting the 2 logos together, and I who chose the colors. Also, File:HalfLife Portal Logo.svg has a higher chance of being used by other people than mine since it's on Commons and easier to be found per the site's notability, which is unfair to me since I came up with the idea. Klow (talk) 08:07, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
It was deleted because it was a combination of the Aperture Science logo from Portal and the lambda was from Half-Life. Though, the same logo appears at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:HalfLife_Portal_Logo.svg and it comes from that very Wiki, so I am going to work on restoring it.

File:Ronit Tirosh.jpg[edit]

This file was deleted after being "Universally replaced by File:Ronit_Tirosh_2011.JPG" with the rationale reason as "Reason was "updated image"".

Even that is rarely done (or should be) just because of a better image, as it's sometimes hard to know that it's better in *all* contexts (maybe there is a discussion on a talk page or something about the other version in particular, that kind of thing, or maybe someone else just prefers the first version, etc.).

File:Logo NUDO Namibia.jpg[edit]

The file is from the German Wikipedia (Datei:Logo_NUDO_Namibia.jpg) and is used as fair use. As a result the image can not remain here per Commons:Fair use. Where do you intend to use the image? I might be able to move the image locally as fair use to a specific Wikimedia project as fair use. MorganKevinJ(talk) 16:55, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
German Wikipedia does not accept fair-use because there is no fair-use in German law. There are a few exceptions in German copyright law but they are very restrictive. On the other hand, courts in Germany require a big complexity for considering something as eligible for copyright. Thus there is a high "Threshold of Originality".
However, this file contains an image. There is no way to keep it on Commons. -- RE rillke questions? 23:25, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

File: Ivan Samylovsky_resized.jpg[edit]

Dear Administrators, I have uploaded several versions of the photo for Ivan Samylovsky(Ivan Samylovskii), all of higher resolution that was the initially uploaded version. I would kindly request you not to delete any of them and to please keep the higher possible resolution available under public use. These are my private photos and I do not mark any limitations for the use. The reasons for making the resized photo is the following: the biography was included in several publications, the photos were also reproduced except the main one, i.e. the portrait one which was of a very low resolution. Therefore, if in future this biography would be included in any other publication (and I will welcome this and will be delighted if this happens) I will be happy if the portrait photo could be also included, that is why I managed to resize it and uploaded the highest possible resolution. I would appreciate your understanding and your kind cooperation in this matter. Yours truly, ERASWK — Preceding unsigned comment added by ERASWK (talk • contribs) 2012-05-09T18:21:55 (UTC)

Deletions by Romaine[edit]

Two files, File:2011-1795 - Flickr - Slut Jennifer Ann for reposting.jpg and File:11-clamped balls and red panties - Flickr - Slut Jennifer Ann for reposting.jpg, were deleted by User:Romaine with the rationale "sexual content, not for use". This is not a valid deletion criterion, and even if it were, it should go through a deletion request. Handcuffed (talk) 23:06, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

  • That's debatable; however, Commons:Deletion policy is very clear on what types of files can be speedily deleted, namely if they are
  • Corrupted, infected by a virus, unintentionally blank, etc.
  • Has previously been deleted under Commons deletion guidelines
  • Was uploaded with the intent to be used solely for purposes of vandalism, personal attacks, and/or spamming
These files were none of these, so their deletion is a violation of policy. Frankly, I'm disappointed that two administrators don't know the policy/choose to ignore it. Handcuffed (talk) 23:55, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

    • My only point is that if the filename is an issue, it can be renamed. Also with PORN being a delicate subject on the Commons right now, it would just be best to avoid any speedy deletion unless it is something like copyright infringement. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 06:56, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
      • Try as I might, I cannot see any possible educational use for those images. Seriously. There are COM:SCOPE issues, they're yet more poor quality porn pics, and there may be issues around model consent - Alison 07:18, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
        • Maybe cross dressing/humiliation? I don't know, but I feel the images could probably go on a DR and I will not oppose such a request. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 08:05, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
        • I think the point is they should be nominated for regular deletion... speedy deletion is reserved for obvious cases that nobody would really contest; subjective stuff like COM:SCOPE deletions should almost always be regular deletion requests, allowing for a discussion, and not speedy deletion -- that should be reserved for very, very obvious cases. There is a good chance they should be deleted I think, but they should still go through regular deletion -- please use the "Nominate for deletion" link on the image pages.

File:Goebbels látogatása Modelnél.ogv[edit]

  • The deletion reason was "Source material is not PD in source country Germany" without any discussion of this. It was explained that the source material is held by the National Archives and Records Administration from the series "Captured German War Films" (ARC Identifier 64760 / Local Identifier 342-USAF-13034 and ARC Identifier 24043 / Local Identifier 111-ADC-10281) and was made available through the Internet Archive with an explicit Public Domain license. Under German law, copyright on media created between 1940 and 1965 expired 25 years after publication.[4] While the Uruguay Round restored copyright to 70 years in 1996, it specifically prevents copyright on films previously under the administration of the "Enemy Property Custodian" from being renewed. Therefore this film is public domain. ShipFan (talk) 03:29, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
    • But only in the United States. Files must be copyright free in both the source country and the United States; in this case if both Goebbels and Model, they died in 1945 so we must wait 70 years after their death before we can have this file restored. Plus, I also looked at the treaty text and there is nothing about "Enemy Property Custodian" (unless that is something with the US law outside the URAA). User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 03:44, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
    • German law a) retroactively restored copyright to 70pma, and b) court rulings apparently changed the level of "simple photographs" to be only things like X-Rays; virtually all photographs etc. then received a 70pma term, even if the 25-year term had previously expired. This all happened prior to the URAA coming into affect, so most German works had a 70pma term on the URAA date. You are correct that the above material was a special exception to the URAA restorations, and thus remains PD in the United States, but Commons needs works to be PD in both the United States (check) *and* the country of origin Germany (no longer PD there, so a problem). [Zscout370 -- it is the "Alien Property Custodian" and the special exception is set out in 17 USC 104A (a)(2). Correct that that exception is US-only, though the UK has something similar.] 04:42, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
      • Yes, that is it. I know it is special to US Law and it has nothing to do with the URAA at all (it is not even in the treaty). User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 04:46, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
        • The URAA is not a treaty (that would be GATT or TRIPS); it is the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, which is a U.S. law implementing aspects of those treaties. Although really, the restorations were just conforming to the Berne Convention as it already stood, which the U.S. had tried to avoid in 1989. It's possible some of the details were negotiated along with the actual treaty, but I don't think there had to be anything special for it in the treaty text. The exception was targeted explicitly at making sure Nazi material could not be removed from circulation under guise of copyright. Carl Lindberg (talk) 05:22, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

File:Samah Sabawi.jpg[edit]

A few moments ago my picture of Samah Sabawi, as well as several others all at once, were deleted on account of questionable copyright. I am a part-time photographer and assuredly have her full permission over the use of the photo that I uploaded as Samah_Sabawi.jpg..

could you please undelete the file mentioned?, licence given by user on flicker that says : You are free: to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work. See here and here.--Yearitems (talk) 01:41, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

It has a CC-BY-NC-ND license. So while the above is true, there is no right to create derivative works, and no right to use it commercially, both of which we require to host a work here. See Commons:Licensing; we accept CC-BY and CC-BY-SA licenses, but cannot accept any CC license with either "NC" or "ND" parts to them. Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:34, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
It's not been created any derivate work, the image uploaded to wikimedia commons is the same image on flicker it hasn't been altered, transformed, or built upon the original work, and it's not being used commercially but it's been using in educational way giving information about history of judiciary in Peru, so what's the reason for delete?--Yearitems (talk) 06:05, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
As pointed out, we MUST have images licensed in a way so modifications can be made and also allowed to be used commercially. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 06:16, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
While copying the image here is not violating that license, we have self-imposed conditions on what licenses are allowed. See Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses, particularly at the bottom of that section. To be "free" we have to be able to modify the picture and use it in derivative works, and there cannot be a commercial use restriction. So, it's not a legal problem, but that license is against our policy. Carl Lindberg (talk) 12:52, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
 Not done As pointed out by Zscout370 and Carl Lindberg, acceptable licences on Commons must allow derivative work and commercial use (for CC licences it means no NC or ND).

the file has the right licence to use it here. thanks.--Yearitems (talk) 15:19, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

I can't see the deleted image, but it was deleted (like your above requests) because the Flickr image uses CC-BY-NC or CC-BY-ND or CC-BY-NC-ND licenses. We can't keep those. If you want, you could ask the Flickr user if they will change their license to CC-BY or CC-BY-SA, but many folks are understandably not willing to do that. We also don't allow Wikipedia-only permission, so those terms must be available to anyone. The authors can also send an email per the instructions at COM:OTRS. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:34, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
ok thanks for your answer I'll ask the flickr user if they will change their licence then I'll put the links here.--Yearitems (talk) 15:38, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

I have communicated with the author of a file of skyscrapercity and he gave me permission to use the file here, please could you tell me what must I do or what must he do to the procedure be ok and to request undelet of the file? thanks for your answer.--Yearitems (talk) 15:51, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
If you have valid permissions, please have a look here: COM:OTRS. There is written how to send such "special permissions" to Wikimedia in order to have it stored locally forever. --High Contrast (talk) 15:55, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Please, I have a question. The author David Aguilar Cuba of this image of skyscrapercity, for file be accepted on commons, has he had to send to wikimedia commons via e-mail permissions-commonswikimedia.org the permission to use his work on commons?, and was via that box saying some like ...To: permissions-commonswikimedia.org I hereby affirm that CHOOSE ONE: [I, (name here) am] OR [(copyright holder's name) is] the creator and/or sole owner of the exclusive copyright of [SPECIFY THE WORK HERE - describe the work to be released in detail, attach the work to the email, or give the URL of the work if online]...? Because the uploader of the file to wikimedia commons is Alfredovasquezm . Thanks for your answer.--Yearitems (talk) 20:42, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Hrm. That might be a problem. I do see that alfredovasquezm (the uploader here) was a separate participant in that skyscrapercity thread, so it's possible permission was obtained via other avenues at the time. Our permissions procedures were not nearly so fleshed out at the time, and we did grandfather some of the old permission stuff. That photo is from August/September 2006. Ah -- I do see the author, in this post, blessed the upload here. That may not be explicit enough by today's standards though, but it certainly was not done without some permission. It's been here for almost six years, the author did look at the permission statement on the image page here, and apparently had no issues with it. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:01, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
OK, but currently some author of some file of skyscrapercity for his work be uploaded on commons, has he have to send to wikimedia commons the permision via e-mail and data in box mentioned above? thanks for your answer.--Yearitems (talk) 21:24, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
If he wants to declare the copyright license in a post on skyscrapercity, that is fine too, since that would obviously come from the same person. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:30, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Well, I have communicated with some authors of skyscrapercity and I have talked to them via e-mail about if I can upload their files here on commons, some of them don't have commons account and they are agree I upload their files here, the authors I talked they don't have any problem about I uploaad their files here, that's why I'd like to know if they have to send the permission via e-mail and if that is the right way for wikimedia to get the permission of author of files. Thanks again.--Yearitems (talk) 21:43, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
That is the best way, and also the wording of the email at COM:OTRS is helpful to confirm that the user is aware they are licensing the photo for anyone's use -- all too often, requests for permission make it sound like they are asking for permission for Wikipedia only, which we can't accept. So, following those instructions is a good way to go. If they wish to specify CC-BY or CC-BY-SA (or similar) as a license in a skyscrapercity post as an alternative, that is fine as well -- just point out the post as evidence of permission. We just need some indication from the copyright owner that they do, in fact, understand the license and intend to license it that way. You can use the {{OP}} tag once they do send the email to OTRS. Carl Lindberg (talk) 01:04, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks a lot for your answers.--Yearitems (talk) 03:20, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
One more question. With these words that you explained ...If they wish to specify CC-BY or CC-BY-SA (or similar) as a license in a skyscrapercity post as an alternative, that is fine as well ... are you saying that it would be ok if the author of a file in skyscrapercity can edit one of his old post or in a new one and to add, let's say a line above or below the image of the file posted, the words "Licence: CC-BY" or "Licence: CC-BY-SA" and wikimedia commons already can accept the file very well? as an alternative way?. Thanks for your answer.--Yearitems (talk) 23:12, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that would be fine, because that would obviously be the author licensing their work (presumably nobody else has gotten access to their skyscrapercity account). If a Flickr image is licensed CC-BY, we accept that for similar reasons -- this would be no different. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:22, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks a lot for your answer again.--Yearitems (talk) 23:41, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
