File:Vishwa Mohan Bhatt by Atul Ojhal Dube.jpg [edit]

Though work is similar but its not exactly same to the image provided in comment to the deletion. It is a pencil work and has more details than that image. Like, Full instrument is drawn in this art work and his aura also shown surrounding the head of 'Vishwa Mohan Bhatt'. Smile on the face also quite creative. Artist was invited by Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in Jaipur and well appreciated. Below is the link to the source.

we would humbly request Wiki to add this art work again. It is very informative, interesting and good for Wiki. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mohanmusic (talk • contribs) 14:19, 30 January 2013‎ (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It may be all of "very informative, interesting and good for Wiki', but it is also a clear copyright violation. It is obviously a derivative work of http://www.vishwamohanbhatt.in/images/gallery_new/large/06.jpg and cannot be kept here without permission from the photographer of that image. OTRS ticket #2012122710004052 which is shown on the file applies only to the pencil sketch and not to the photograph from which the sketch was copied. .     Jim . . . .

File:IPhone original iOS 1.0.1.2.png [edit]

Please not there is no other identical image. The closet is this one but in the upper left corner my one has Cingular the other one had AT&T the similar image: http://images.macworld.com/images/article/2012/06/original-iphone-285637.jpg

Not your file. The photo of the phone is not your work, the content of the screen is not your work. The photo is the same as in your link above, the sorting of the apps is the same, the top bar with "Cingular" and the clock showing 9:41 AM is the same as on the apple promo pictures from that time (while the AT&T version shows 9:42 AM).

If it was a mistake by an overworked quality control volunteers, who agrees with restoration, we need say no more.

File:V.A.Shiva.2012.jpg [edit]

Hi! The image I uploaded of Shiva Ayyadurai got deleted, twice. It's posted on his site under an open license, and I emailed the site manager to check on copyright and they said it was a work-for-hire and they own the copyright. I didn't notice the deletion discussion until after it was taken down. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:V.A.Shiva.2012.jpg

Not sure what I need to do differently. It asked for rightsholder, license, and reference, all of which I listed when I uploaded the image, so this hassle seems unnecessary.

I uploaded another related photo at the same time, Image:West Palm Beach SAL 002.jpg, which is obviously from the same photo session, and which remains undeleted.

Image:CastilloPedraza-rectangular.jpg[edit]

I kindly request the undeletion of file Image:CastilloPedraza-rectangular.jpg, my picture, that has been wrongly deleted (I was never notified of any problem with the file and it was deleted straightaway without a previous warning in my talk page). The license to be used is self|cc-by-sa-3.0. Please put it back in place along with its links to the wikipedia pages where it was being used. Besides, I would be grateful if you could notify the "user" who deleted the file to abstain himself/herself from ever doing such thing again. Any problem with a file I have uploaded MUST be notified to me and I will arrange whatever it is needed if really necessary. If I ever see such a lack of consideration with my voluntary and unpaid work again I will strike back at the vandal and he/she will not like it... Thank you for help.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 08:25, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Commons gets around 8,000 new images every day. Approximately 2,000 images are deleted every day for a variety of reasons, often because there is no license. That is the case with this image. The image was marked for deletion for twelve days before it was actually deleted. Since all of us involved with Commons are volunteers and ten Admins do the vast bulk of the deletion work, more notice than that is simply not possible.
Threats will get you nothing but being blocked from editing on Commons.
I have restored the image and added the license you stipulated. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:17, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for undeleting my file. Threats will teach unruly people with a happy trigger that have no respect for other people's work to behave themselves in a community. If you want to sack someone from Commons you can start by your vandal colleague. If someone cannot do things properly my suggestion is to leave wikipedia now and stop breaking people's work. I am a volunteer too and I NEVER delete people's content without notifying them in advance. If you cannot do that kindly keep away from the material I upload. It takes time, money and effort. That said, if you want me out of Commons, say so now so that I stop contributing and I spend my time somewhere else.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 13:26, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Your reaction seems totally out of proportion. All the people working here, not only you, are volunteers. All work in good faith and, as anyone, may make a mistake. You've been uploading perfectly valid images for four years but made a mistake when uploading the file we're discussing about. Never mind. The bot that marked your file seems not to have warned you (in case a physical user had done it the notification would have been automatic) and that's another mistake. Fortunately, nothing disappear from commons and can be saved if a mistake has been made. Therefore, as you made initially a mistake, your file was unfortunately deleted. You noticed that and the file has been restored. Does it make to start your campaign with the person that made the smallest mistake in the whole process (the one that deleted your file 12 days after the file was marked instead of 7 days after, as the policy states)? Don't think so. What I'd definitely do is to ask to the programmer of the bot and ask him to guarantee that the uploader is notified whenever it marks a file... and nothing more... And I'd suggest you to apologize. Everybody is a volunteer here and human (and therefore make mistakes). Just get over it and keep on your good work. Everything's fixed and we've learnt that Nikbot doesn't work properly. --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 14:38, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Agreed to a point: everyone makes mistakes and I was the first that did by leaving a license tag out. Had I been notified I would have ensured (I always try to) to fix it. I was not. That is not my main point. My point is that though we can all make mistakes those with a responsability to delete content have to be extra careful and triple check what they do (or their scripts do) before they remove anything at all. Mistakes when adding are not the same as mistakes when deleting: these latter ones prevent people from using valid content and break articles, the former do not. So before anyone clicks (physically or automatically) the delete button, think twice and then think again. No matter if you are the only admin doing the job or there are a thousand of them. If you do not feel up to the job ask for help or resign but do not break other people's work. I am certainly ready to apologize when whoever deleted my file does so as well, no problem at all. But so far the offended party is me: I had to take the pictures, put them together, upload them to Commons, link the file in wikipedia and ask to have it restored because someone deleted it. Judge the amount of work each part has done with the picture. Nonetheless I am happy to exchange apologies.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 14:52, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

I personally think that this issue has been escalated too much. I agree with you in the sense that you should have been warned. It's the way the bot seems to be programmed what has created this mess. However, I do think that you take the deletion as if it were something catastrophic... and it isn't. A click is needed to delete a file (in fact more than one) and yet another click is used to undelete a file once the error has been acknowledged. Should the user deleting the file have previously verified that you'd been warned? Yes. But I don't even do it. I consider that the person marking a file has already warned the uploader (as the commons interface allows). I wasn't even aware of bots marking files and not warning users. Therefore, I'd like to apologize on behalf of the admins of this project if the deletion was wrong. It was done, for sure, in good faith and without any ulterior motive. Could we keep on working (and having fun if possible)? Best regards --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 15:20, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, we can, my apoligies as well. I just hope we will all (myself included) be more careful in the future.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 15:24, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Aids Education Poster - Quang Ngai - Vietnam.JPG[edit]

I proposed this deletion. I now think I was mistaken. The FOP for Vietnam, at least according to our interpretation Commons:Freedom of panorama#Vietnam seems strong enough even for temporarily displayed posters. I've discussed this with the admin who performed the deletion and they have suggested I raise it here so more people can look at it. The poster which is the subject of this image can also be found in this photo File:Saigon AIDS Sign.jpg where it is in a slightly more permanent position. --Simonxag (talk) 11:18, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose While Article 25.1(h) of the 2005 law does give FOP in Vietnam, Article 25.2 requires that the author and source of the work be stated:

That to me is moral rights -- there is nothing stopping anyone from adding the author's name to the image page if known. I don't think the author's name is a requirement in order to keep, particularly if it's not present on the work in question (the lack of which is also a violation of moral rights). Just add the information if known. That would be a pretty silly to be able to dodge of normal FoP rights by not mentioning the author's name on the original. There are similar clauses in the laws of other countries. If we think the poster qualifies under article 25.1(h), then I think we should keep it. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:11, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Set of old permission cases[edit]

This file has been uploaded long before the OTRS process existed. You cannot ask for an OTRS proof more than five years after the upload was done. I herewith confirm that I did get the permission for this file for GFDL use in Wikipedia from the owner as stated in the file description. Please undelete the file. --Friedrich K. (talk) 17:54, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've joined the six cases to one to ease the associated discussion as they all seem to be similar. --AFBorchert (talk) 18:41, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

All these files were uploaded on 23 March 2007. OTRS permission processes existed at that time already even if it wasn't common practice then, though. We had already multiple discussions regarding these old cases. Some time ago, I opened a discussion here where the consensus headed to the point to expect a fully-documented OTRS permission beginning from 2008. The is currently a proposal for a new guideline into this direction which, however, considers only cases uploaded prior to 15 March 2006. This is in my opinion unfortunate as it took some time until OTRS permission processes where enforced. {{No permission since}} was created on 12 October 2006‎ and it did not point to the OTRS email address before 12 May 2007. Before, it asked just to document the permission within the file description. Hence, I support the undeletion request on the ground that the OTRS permission procedure was not well established at the time of the upload, that Friedrich K. is a trusted user where we have no doubt that the statements given on the file descriptions are true, and he did exactly at that time what appeared to be common practice. Here is a quote of one of the permission notices in the file descriptions:

Why should we waste even more peoples' valuable time for these unnecessary deletions? The pictures and the permissions to use these files on CK-Wissen.de under the GNU-FDL were given to me from Arne May in 2007. The Wikimedia deletion template requested “Please provide a link to an appropriate webpage with license information…”. This has been done, see above.

File:Fire Hall, Etobicoke, Royal York Road, s.e. cor. Tenby St. -a.jpg[edit]

This thread was removed less than 24 hours after it was initiated. The contributor who removed it seems to have said it was an accident. So I am restoring it. Geo Swan (talk) 19:10, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Fire Hall, Etobicoke, Royal York Road, s.e. cor. Tenby St. -a.jpg and File:Fire Hall, Etobicoke, Royal York Road, s.e. cor. Tenby St. -b.jpg were two images whose source pages each explicitly stated that the images were in the public domain. An administrator deleted these two images, citing a license page, said these images were under "non-commercial" licenses.

In my request for assistance I noted that the first section of the license page said:

"Personal, educational, research and general publication"
Images identified as "Public Domain" in the Digital Archive may be reproduced in print or electronic format for personal, educational, research and general publication. General publication use includes published materials such as books and journals.
If material from the Library's Digital Archive is published, a credit line, "Courtesy of Toronto Public Library" is appreciated.

I wrote that I thought that the curators meant the term "general publication" to include all kinds of publication -- including both commercial and non-commercial publication.

It seems to me that the warnings to users to make sure images from this site are used consistently with their licenses is only meant to apply to those images which were not explicitly in the public domain.

I don't think an explicit statement that an image is in the public domain is consistent with assertions an image is protected with a non-commercial license.

I know we sometimes exercise caution, when an amateur seems to have inconsistently used both a free and a non-free license, on the theory the amateur didn't understand the free license. I suggest this kind of caution is not in order when a professional curator has explicitly stated an image is in the public domain.

In reply the deleting administrator basically repeated that they thought the images were under a non-commercial license, without any further explanation, and told me to initiate a discussion here. Geo Swan (talk) 21:32, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

If they say public domain, that means they think they are no longer protected copyright, so there can't be any commercial restriction. If this was a file marked "public domain" per the above quoted section, then yes I think it's fine. We may have to be careful about U.S. copyright though; the "public domain" is probably based on Canada's laws alone. Carl Lindberg (talk) 05:24, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
It is not possible to release works to the public domain in most countries. Unless it is possible to release works to the public domain in Canada, a statement on whether something is in the public domain or not might not have a legal meaning. --Stefan4 (talk) 19:06, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
I suspect this file is in the public domain in Canada because its creator died in 1958. It would likely have passed into the public domain on January 1, 2009 (i.e. after the end of the calendar year in which the creator died, plus fifty years), subject to a couple of caveats. There's a useful flowchart here. Rrburke (talk) 17:40, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
The images are public domain in Canada as copyright would have expired. The problem is that they are not public domain in the United States, as the most likely scenario for them to have been PD in the U.S. would have had to have been for the copyright in Canada in Canada to have expired prior to January 1, 1996 (the 95 years after publication date rule is even less helpful to us).

The only way around this is if the TPL owns the copyright to the images and has chosen to release these images into the public domain, notwithstanding that copyright persists in some countries outside Canada (i.e. the U.S.). James Salmon appears to have donated his photos to the Library, and then many of the images were subsequently transferred to the City of Toronto Archives. Whether Salmon transfered the copuyright interest to the library as well (or only donated the physical photographs) is unknown, and if so, it is unclear whether the library (the library board is a separate legal entity from the City) or the City owns the copyright today. It is my view that in order to restore these images, we would need written confirmation from the library (filed with OTRS) confirming that library owns the copyright and that the statement above (the one quoted by Geo Swan) represents an actual release of the image into the public domain (as opposed to a simple acknowledgement that the image is no longer copyrighted in Canada). I have no idea if it is legally possible in Canada to release a work into the public domain (my understanding was always that it is possible in most common law countries, and this Government of Canada page suggests it is). Regardless, the cavets in {{PD-self}} would cover us. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 20:11, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Hmm... I thought James Salmon was the creator and/or copyright holder, but the TPL link describes him as "keen collector of photography" who "collected 14,000 photographs on subjects that interested him". Only some (the notation "neg. by James V. Salmon" appears on some of the items in the collection) are his own work. It looks like a pretty miscellaneous group from a wide variety of sources. Rrburke (talk) 02:38, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
  • You are correct, the description of the collection he donated does say it includes pictures he acquired in addition to images he snapped himself.
{{PD-Canada}} says Canadian images snapped prior to 1949-01-01 are all in the public domain. If that is so, then wouldn’t any images from his collection prior to 1949 be in the public domain, even if Salmon bought them or was given them, by another photographer?
After User:INeverCry deleted these images I used the TPL's search function to look at all images with James Victor Salmon on the source page. I uploaded a dozen or so pre-1949 images. I looked at hundreds of his images. Images earlier than 1949 were rare -- less than one in ten I would guess. Images from 1955 were the most common. Almost all the images were from 1955. I don't remember seeing any later than 1955. Maybe 1955 is when he made his donation?
The TPL says they have only digitized a fifth or so of the 14,000 images in his donation. Geo Swan (talk) 05:43, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
All pre-1949 photos are in the public domain in Canada. However, Canadian photos taken after 1945 are {{Not-PD-US-URAA}}. Also, unpublished Canadian photos are only in the public domain in the United States if they comply with {{PD-US-unpublished}}. Also, some other photos may be problematic because of Commons:Subsisting copyright. --Stefan4 (talk) 08:35, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the additional info.
I went to Commons:Subsisting copyright and it said "Requirements for continued protection (pre-1964 publication only): renewal registration with US Copyright Office, giving 95-year term if done (otherwise work's copyright has lapsed)". So, if Salmon made his donation in the 1950s, they would be PD in the USA -- unless his literary heirs had filed renewals for the copyright at the 28(?) year point? That seems so vanishingly unlikely I think we should ignore it. His literary heirs would be directly flouting Salmon's intentions if they tried to renew copyright on photos he donated to a public archive.
Would there be any value for a museum or library to accept a donation of images or documents if the donor did not also release the rights to display that material to the public? When would a curator accept a donation when the donor didn't agree to allow the material to be used? Would a curator accept classified documents, and go to the considerable expense of cataloguing and arranging for safe, climate controlled storage, insurance, etc, in the hopes that its use to scholars with a security clearance would pay off? Would it be worthwhile as a gift to the institutions curators 95 years later, when the material entered the public domain?
With regard to Template:PD-US-unpublished -- does donation to a public library count as publication? What about when a library puts a portion of a collection on display in a special exhibition focussed around the photographer?
With regard to Commons:URAA-restored copyrights#Main tests seems to say that URAA would only apply if any of the images were "simultaneously published" in the USA (where "simultaneously" means within 30 days). Geo Swan (talk) 19:25, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
If the photos were taken in 1946 or later, and not published simultaneously in the United States, then the photos are protected by copyright in the United States.
If the photos were taken in 1946 or later and published simultaneously in the United States, then you need a copyright notice and a renewal after 28 years.
If the photos were taken before 1946, then you again need a copyright notice and a copyright renewal after 28 years.
If the photographer's intention was to make the photos available to as many people as possible, then it seems highly unlikely that the copyright was renewed. Besides, that requires submitting documents to the authorities in the United States. Works created outside the United States often have little value in the United States, so most non-US works have probably not been renewed.
Publication before 1978 is a bit strange. For example:
  • Placing a statue in a park seems to constitute publication if the park is open to the general public as long as there are no restrictions on photography in the park.
  • Exhibiting a painting at a museum seems to constitute publication if the park is open to the general public as long as there are no restrictions on photography at the museum. This is more tricky since some museums do prevent photography, and it is hard to know whether a given museum allowed photography a long time ago.
Thus, in the same way, I would assume that storing a photo in an archive did constitute publication if anyone could visit the archive and look at the photos without anyone preventing you from taking photos of the photos. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:27, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the followup. Am I reading the URAA page wrong? It seems to me it says it applies only when an image WAS simultaneously published in the USA.
For what its worth a flickr search turns up about 200 free photos the City of Toronto Archives put online, released under a free license. [2]
About a month ago a city gallery was displaying about 300 photos taken by Arthur Goss, that document the projects managed by R.C. Harris. They did allow photographs. I suspect that many of the images were collected by Mr Salmon.
I phoned the Library for more information on the exact copyright status. A message was left for the guy at the special collections desk who is a specialist in copyright, and was told he would phone me back. I'll request he use OTRS to clarify that, if it sounds like we can use the images.
FWIW, several other peoples' books thank Salmon's wife for making the photos he collected available. Geo Swan (talk) 22:35, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I phoned the special collections department. The archivist specifically responsible for the James Victor Salmon collection is not expected back this week. Geo Swan (talk) 18:36, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
That page (Commons:URAA-restored copyrights) says the opposite of what you understood from it, but your reaction is very understandable, as the wording used on that page is very confusing, because it uses a triple negation. The wording is that the URAA does NOT restore the copyright if the answer is NO to the question "was the work NOT published simultaneously in the U.S.?". That is difficult to follow and readers can get completely lost. More simply worded, it means that the URAA does not restore the copyright if the work was published simultaneously in the U.S. -- Asclepias (talk) 20:22, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
update

I spoke with the reference librarian at the Baldwin Room responsible for the collection. He said that the images that James Victor Salmon took personally were in the public domain solely due to age. Skeezix suggested, above, that we would only be able to use these images if they were in the public domain prior to 1995-1-1.

The Toronto Public Library transferred about 2,300 of the images from the Salmon collection to the City of Toronto archives. If I understood the reference librarian they recognized that Salmon's collection included images he merely owned copies of -- and did not own the intellectual property rights -- so when the City owned the intellectual property rights to an image it became one that was transferred to the City.

If I am not mistaken images from the Salmon collection that predate 1949-1-1 would still be safe for us to use. Geo Swan (talk) 15:44, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

In your first paragraph, the date should be 1996-1-1 (not 1995-1-1). It is the URAA date. In your third paragraph, the date should be 1946-1-1 (not 1949-1-1), for the same reason, as it's just a different wording for saying the same thing as in the first paragraph: URAA date (1996-1-1) minus 50 years = 1946-1-1. (Excepting works that complied with all U.S. copyright conditions.) -- Asclepias (talk) 01:35, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Okay 1996-1-1 -- not 1995-1-1. Thanks. About the earlier date, {{PD-Canada}} says 1949-1-1. Is it wrong? Geo Swan (talk) 09:24, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
The template is correct, but it is a country-specific template, so it describes only the conditions relative to the public domain in Canada. (E.g., all non-Crown photographs created more than 50 years before the copyright modifications came into force in 1999 had entered the public domain in Canada before 1999 and thus they remained in the public domain in Canada.) However, on Wikimedia, to be "safe for us to use", works must be in the public domain in the United States. That's where the URAA-related provisions of the Copyright Act of the United States come into play. Photographs created on 1946-1-1 or later were not created more than 50 years before the URAA date of 1996-1-1, thus they were not yet in the public domain in Canada on the URAA date, thus they are not in the public domain in the United States. For example, a photograph first published in Canada in 1946 is in the public domain in Canada since 1997 but will enter the public domain in the United States in 2042. -- Asclepias (talk) 18:49, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks. I think you mean that the {{PD-Canada}} template (1) can't be counted on to establish that an image is public domain in the USA; (2) thus can't be counted on to establish that an image can be hosted on a US server. This is what I meant when I asked "is it wrong". If this is the case, then why aren't we deprecating this template, and replacing it with one called something like {{PD-Canada-URAA-compliant}}? Geo Swan (talk) 01:02, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
On your points (1) and (2), yes that is it, exactly. On your template suggestion, I can't say unless you explain how you would word that template (and if you would suggest the same thing for all the 200+ other country templates), but here is probably not the right page to discuss it. Perhaps you can explain your idea on the Village pump/Copyright? -- Asclepias (talk) 14:34, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Can the section be closed? From the reply from the librarian, there is no indication that the photos were released by their copyright owners, whoever they are. Depending on who the authors were, the photos created after 1946 may or may not have entered the public domain in Canada after 1996, but that does not affect their non-free status in the U.S. -- Asclepias (talk) 21:03, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Ironholds indelible barnstar.jpg and File:Oliver Tattoo-1.jpg[edit]

These two files:

Were deleted following a deletion discussion in which the argument was made that "Tattoos are classed as art, and as such, the underlying designs on the tattoo AND the tattoo itself, need to be either released into the public domain and/or made available under a free licence. The release needs to come from the designer of the underlying elements of the tattoo, and from the tattoo artist who did the tattoo".

This demonstrates a misunderstanding of the circumstances in which the tattoos were applied. The designs were made by w:User:Heatherawalls, who has released them under a CC-BY-SA compatible license, and then directly applied. The only effort on the part of the tattooist was just that: effort, not creative application. The tattoos in question were applied in the United States, where the sweat of the brow doctrine does not exist; the only person who needs to consent to its open licensing, in other words, is the designer, who has. Ironholds (talk) 22:37, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Comments. It would be useful if we could see a copy of the original design so we can verify that there were no creative embellishments by the tattooist, although I'm willing to believe Ironholds on this point. The photograph's file description page did not previously attribute the designer of the tattoo, counter to the design's license. I personally feel that if we restore the work and correctly attribute the designer on the file description page, that should suffice for compliance, even if the tattoo itself on your body fails to comply with the terms of the license. (If the designer either releases the design under CC0 or gives specific permission to use the design in this case without attribution, that would avoid any concern over noncompliant use of the design by the tattoo itself, but I think it's a nonissue really). Dcoetzee (talk) 00:16, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose If I had the skill and copied a Rembrandt in oil, my copy would have a copyright even though all Rembrandts are PD long ago. In many countries, including the UK (but not the USA), even photographs of old masters have copyrights. I don't understand, then, why a tattoo artist's work would not have a copyright, even though it was a copy of a PD work. Also, User:Ironholds tells us that the license on the design is CC-BY-SA.

    That's nice; the tattoo was done in Five and Dime in Oakland. CC-BY-SA requires attribution 'reasonable to the medium or means' of the work. Do you feel that me getting Heather's name permanently etched under my skin in artificial pigments would be reasonable? Ironholds (talk) 21:36, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
    It should have a link to the CC license too. Perhaps a DMCA takedown is in order here. John lilburne (talk) 10:42, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
  • I have no strong opinion on whether these images should be restored or on any of the other issues, but surely the application of the tattoo is a work for hire, so the tattooist's (is that the term?) copyright, if his efforts were sufficient to generate copyright, would transfer to the person who hired him (in this case presumably Oliver), would they not? HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 17:20, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Not unless the contract for the tattoo specifically called it out. Work by a contractor -- not an employee -- is not automatically a work for hire in the USA, see Work_for_hire#Law_in_the_United_States. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:44, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm slightly confused: Did Heatherawalls create the design specifically for the tattoo, or was the tattoo made based on a preexisting design by her? If the former is true, then to say the tattoo itself is in violation of CC-BY-SA is completely wrong; presumably she granted the tattoo artist the right to copy it when she told him to copy it. In addition, given the former, I think the point is for the tattoo artist to copy it as exactly as possible, then there is no new copyright in the US. It's a subtle distinction, but it depends on the degrees of freedom of the interpretation, and I feel a single-color line art is more similar in complexity to a photo of a painting than a painted copy. Of course, if the latter is true, everything falls apart. -- King of ♠ 19:24, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
    The latter is (I believe) true; it's based on the barnstar (which is, of course, freely licensed). Ironholds (talk) 21:36, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
    Actually it appears the original work is released into the public domain. Ironholds (talk) 21:38, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Restore -- Let's see if I understand the discussion above. Someone (1)paid for a couple of tattoos; (2) those tattoos were supposed to be faithful copies; (3) challengers are suggesting that the tattooist may have accidentally lapsed from making a truly faithful copy, and in that case, the copy was entitled to copyright protection.

    It seems to me that the "spark of creativity" required for copyright protection requires actually trying to be creative. Accidental lapses from making a faithful copy are accidents, not creativity, and thus not protected by copyright -- hence Restore. Geo Swan (talk) 04:51, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Geo Swan's summary seems to be generally persuasive, though point 1 is irrelevant (per Jim's comment on works-for-hire). As for the "infringing works" argument, it isn't our job to enforce our views of copyright on others, just to (do our best to) comply with them ourselves. So we'll state the license and give the attribution and be done with the matter. Restore. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 22:55, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I added the missing attribution information, but the current CC-BY license on the photo is unacceptable - we need the original photographers/uploaders to change the license to CC-BY-SA, as these are derivative of Heatherawalls's CC-BY-SA design. Otherwise we can't keep these images. Dcoetzee (talk) 23:36, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Isla de El Hierro, Valverde, Iglesia de la Concepción, entre los años 1927 y 1936, Fototeca del IPCE, LOTY-10925 P.jpg[edit]

Buenos días: He visto que ha sido borrado el siguiente archivo que subí en diciembre de 2012: File:Isla de El Hierro, Valverde, Iglesia de la Concepción, entre los años 1927 y 1936, Fototeca del IPCE, LOTY-10925 P.jpg Este archivo ha sido subido con todos los permisos. La imagen procede de una página del Ministerio de Educación Cultura y Deporte de España, donde claramente, en el AVISO LEGAL se especifica que puede difundirse con la atribución de CREATIVE COMMONS. El Ministerio compró el Archivo fotográfico LOTY, y lo difunde manteniendo "derechos de reproducción" que consisten en la obligatoriedad de citar la procedencia, mediante licencia Creative Commons. Esta imagen (y todas las de esa procedencia) no tienen Copyright. Al contrario, el Ministerio las pone a disposición de todo el mundo (respetando la licencia Creative Commons).

El tema no es tan sencillo (y quizás debería verlo un licenciado en Derecho). El Ministerio dice literalmente: "Usted es libre de: Copiar, distribuir y comunicar públicamente la obra" (a pesar de las restricciones NC(No comercial)). Por otra parte, la fotografía se realizó en abril de 1931, habiendo pasado más de 80 años de su publicación en forma de tarjeta postal. Y la casa editora LOTY desapareció completamente en 1936, en la Guerra Civil (el dueño era un francés que no dejó rastro). A su vez, el supuesto fotógrafo era portugués, y trabajaba en exclusiva para la casa Loty (que era la que tenía los derechos en exclusiva). Por tanto, quizás por estos otros caminos, la fotografía puede considerarse libre (exactamente por pasar más de 80 años de su publicación en 1931).--Carlos Teixidor Cadenas (talk) 16:14, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Goby49.jpg [edit]

This file along with 29 others uploaded by the same user were deleted because of suppossed missing permissions. The photos were all uploaded using the wIzard with appropriate assertions that the images were "own work" of the uploader. Is there some reason to doubt that these assertions were given falsely? Did the upload wizard fail to annotate the pages incorrectly? Mistake by the deleter? bondolo 06:48, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Although {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}} is in the license section, the permission= line is blank, so perhaps Martin and INC missed the license -- we work fast to keep up with about 1,700 deletions every day.
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment My concern here would be that these are all small web-res images of well-photographed fish that give me a certain ammount of doubt about "own work". INeverCry 19:02, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The images were uploaded in response to a request on a photography sub-forum of a popular reef aquarium forum. Since the uploaders were self selecting photography and aquarium enthusiasts it shouldn't be all that surprising that the images are high quality. An argument that "These images look too good" doesn't seem like an appropriate basis to suspect them. bondolo (talk) 01:52, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
What do you mean by "uploaders"? Were these images taken by several people? INeverCry 01:57, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
These 30 images were all uploaded by User:Gregr6. There are other sets uploaded by other users (including the User:Treylane image I asked about on your user page which I will be requesting undeletion for).
It might be a good idea to have these uploaders send emails to COM:OTRS in order to avoid further confusion and deletions. INeverCry 19:55, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
I am sorry but I don't agree that COM:OTRS is a blanket answer and it doesn't seem to be current policy either. Mandatory COM:OTRS is not policy presumably because it would be an unnecessary impediment to contribution and yet that seems to be what you are asking for. Either the declarations made at upload time are sufficient or the upload should not be allowed. If a COM:OTRS is going to be necessary for an upload then the upload should be denied unless an OTRS ticket is provided.
The burden of proving that an image is free is on the uploader. I suggested OTRS because it's a way of meeting that burden. Other solutions would be uploading higher resolution copies with EXIF or an explicit free license given at the original site where they were posted. Otherwise you get alot of confusion because people aren't sure that these are "own work". I just don't want you or the other uploaders to have continue to worry about deletions. INeverCry 01:12, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
  • I thought we generally took uploader's assertions of own work at face value -- unless there was some other reason to have doubts. Is there some reason to question the credibility of this uploader? Geo Swan (talk) 20:37, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
These are web-res images from several different uploaders that have been posted to another website/s prior to being posted here. They've been tagged for deletion by several users.

Category:National Film Awards and Category:National Film Awards winners[edit]

Hi, was deleted for unknown reasons. I kindly request to restore Category:National Film Awards as well as Category:National Film Awards winners created by me imho two or three years ago, ref. en:National Film Awards. Further two related categories: Category:National Film Award for Best Actress winners and Category:National Film Award for Best Actor winners. Thanks and regards, Roland 23:28, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

The category can now be found at Category:National Film Awards, India. I hope thats okay now with you. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 16:50, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
[moved from user talk]Hi! There have been quite a few changes in this category. Finally, what is to be followed now? Category:Winners of National Film Awards, India or Category:National Film Awards India winners? I suppose the second one is right. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 05:47, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi, as mentioned, Category:National Film Awards and Category:National Film Awards winners and sub-categories are the 'correct' categories to be restored.
The 'new' ones mentioned by you are not the 'correct' ones, in naming and by syntax, they has been established after the correct ones were deleted by not discussed reasons.
National Film Awards is imho unique all over the world, no 'miss-understadings' in naming conventions, please refer to en:National Film Awards.
Once to precise, please restore
  1. Category:National Film Awards
  2. Category:National Film Awards winners
  3. b, greek, Category:National Film Award for Best Actress winners
  4. Category:National Film Award for Best Actor winners.
for the reasons given and resulting in logically and grammatically correct names, thx, Roland 18:49, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
There are Category:National Film Awards in almost all countries, including in Russian, Arab, Chinese, Japanese, ... that will translate to the same term.

File:OtherMermaid.jpg[edit]

File was deleted as a FOP violation because Singapore's FOP law only applies to "sculptures and to works of artistic craftsmanship of the kind referred to in paragraph (c) of the definition of “artistic work” in section 7". Section 7 says "“artistic work” means —(a) a painting, sculpture, drawing, engraving or photograph, whether the work is of artistic quality or not; (b) a building or model of a building, whether the building or model is of artistic quality or not; or (c) a work of artistic craftsmanship to which neither paragraph (a) nor (b) applies." Singapore's law was modeled on the Australian law. page 460 The definition of "works of artistic craftsmanship" does not exclude all 2D objects in countries which inherited British copyright. While it definitely excludes drawings and paintings, stained glass is considered as included, and an Australian court ruled that fabric patterns are covered[5][6]. The object here is a banner on an outdoor pole, if a simple fabric design can qualify then a banner should as well. -Nard (Hablemonos)(Let's talk) 19:54, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Although your reading of the Singapore law differs from Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Singapore, I am inclined to believe that you are correct. There remains, however, the question of whether the banner was permanent. If it was put up and remained up until it wore out, then the image is OK, but if it was up for a week or two and then taken down, whether or not it was put up a second time, then the installation was not permanent and FOP does not apply. .     Jim . . . .

File:ABPFoodGrouplogo2013.png and File:LiffeyMeatslogo2013.png [edit]

I am requesting an undeletion because: The logo is an "image of text in a general typeface and of simple geometric shapes" and is "is not sufficiently creative to attract copyright protection". Further more this logo easily fails to reach the threshold of originality.

It was also clearly and correctly licensed and had a "Summary" Sun Ladder (talk) 10:58, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

I've merged your two requests into one, as they should be decided together really. I've certainly seen more complicated logos retained under {{PD-textlogo}}, but I'd like to hear from INeverCry before I consider undeletion. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 18:43, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose These companies are based in the UK. Liffey is in Ireland, and that logo shows a river in the middle of 2 mountains/hills, while ABP is the "leading beef producer in the UK" according to their website, and the logo has a 3D shadow effect. I deleted these because I thought these logos were above COM:TOO for the UK, which is quite low. INeverCry 19:56, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
Update: Liffey is actually based in County Cavan which is a part of Ulster that's in the Republic of Ireland. Since there's no COM:TOO entry specifically for Ireland, I'm not sure about this logo, but the river and hills motif seems somewhat creative/original. INeverCry 22:15, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
If you are talking about the logo on this page, it might well be over the threshold. A depiction of mountains and rivers or whatever that is not necessarily a "simple geometric shape". Secondly, it seems to be an Irish company. I'm not sure what the Irish definition of the threshold of originality is, though their copyright law is mostly based on an old version of the UK law, and the UK has quite a low threshold (which this would be above). It might have deserved a regular deletion request rather than speedy deletion, but I'd probably still lean delete. As for the ABP one... probably under the U.S. threshold, but the UK threshold is another matter entirely. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:51, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
They are both Irish companies. ABP Food Group is based in Ardee Co Louth, Ireland. Its based in Ireland http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/finance/2012/0730/1224321086035.html and http://www.fdbusiness.com/tag/abp-food-group/
If this is a vote based appeal, why does INeverCry get a vote since it's his/her original deletion I'm appealing? Sun Ladder (talk) 12:15, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
It's not a vote. Requests for undeletion – like regular deletion discussions – are judged on the merits of the arguments. The information you provided is helpful to making that determination, but we still need some benchmark for the threshold of originality in Ireland. LX (talk, contribs) 16:31, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I defer to Carl on technical copyright matters as he is both knowledgeable and clear. Without further information on the Irish TOO, we must assume that it is similar to the UK rule, which has a common ancestry, and apply COM:PRP. .     Jim . . . .

Files in Category:Slovenia in World War I[edit]

Regardless of the unknown authorship status, files listed here should be undeleted. The copyright protection for photos in Yugoslavia only lasted 25 years (see ZAP, Ur. l. SFRJ #19/78) upon publishment in case the photographer was not disclosed in this time interval (or 25 years upon the death of the creator), so they simply must have entered public domain before 1995, when the new law extended this period to 70 years (but only for works that have been still copyrighted under the old law on 31.12.1995). I would say that the same applies to WWII, but there are actually chanches that photographers died after 1970. --Miha (talk) 21:47, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

First, we don't know where were these images published; other terms may apply for other countries. Second, per Commons:Village pump/Copyright#Unpublished works in public domain, the publication right makes non-free for Commons all works that have been published for the first time in the European Union (including Slovenia) in the last 25 years, even if the copyright duration has already expired. Btw, in Yugoslavia the copyright duration was 25 years since the publication for all photos, regardless whether the author was anonymous or named (see [8], Article 84). --Eleassar (t/p) 22:06, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment it is fair to assume they were published in Yugoslavia, which was much bigger than the current Slovenia; it is also fair to assume that the photos were published before 1969 as they depict WW I (1914-1918), everything else is needless paranoia --Miha (talk) 11:37, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, but your constant paraphrasing is getting annoying. Well, if even museums do not have accurate information on origin of these photos, we can only rely on common sense and suppose they were published during the war or short after that. Furthermore, in German speaking countries there was no such copyright protection except for literary works, and even those were only protected for 30 years. This period was extended to 50 years in 1993, and finally to 70 p.m.a in the 1970s (see de:Regelschutzfrist). I don't speak Italian, but it would be reasonable first to check their law. --Miha (talk) 15:14, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry, if you find my comments annoying. I'm just expressing my opinion and that's only my style of writing. I'm not personally attacking you. As to the matter, we have nothing to suppose, as said, significant doubt exists because many photos were not published then, but were kept in personal archives. Regarding the copyright protection of photographs in the German speaking countries, you're simply wrong. In Austria, they have been protected at least from 1895. For Austria, see [9]; for Germany, see [10]. --Eleassar (t/p) 15:43, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Savsko naselje.JPG [edit]

Typical socialist arhitecture from the 1970s. Buildings like this (Savsko naselje) can be found all over the former East block (there is little to no difference with in comparison to these flats in Nova Gorica). In comparison to this building from Berlin there is no originality, so this works can not really be copyrighted. --Miha (talk) 23:18, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Jim: we already discussed that there is something called cultural refference (something might seem original to you because you've never seen it before in your country) and if something would be copyrighted in the USA which (supossedly) has milder law, it does not necessarily mean it would be copyrighted in Europe. As you said, as a matter of plain formal logic, it can not be concluded neither assumed that the Slovene breadth of copyright is a perfect superset of that in the US. Actually we have no ground to say that simple and common types of buildings (like factories, hotels, shoping mols, residence flats ...) are generally copyrighted. On the contrary, we can say that the lack of case law shows that in fact the threeshold of originality in Slovenia is de facto higher. Additionally, there is an unwritten but well cited rule of common sense; applied to this case think of how absurd would it be to have residential flats (or houses, which are arhitecture too) in a form of a pyramid just because it couldn't be a normal block since someone else's build a flat in a form of block before. --Miha (talk) 11:47, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
I disagree that these buildings (Savsko naselje) are so common that they can't be copyrighted. These buildings have been protected as objects of cultural heritage.[11] Per [12], although the style was "socialist", the architect, Ilija Arnautović, tried very much to be innovative and used every time new design and technology innovations ("znotraj stanovanjske arhitekture odkrival vedno nove oblikovne, predvsem pa tehnološke inovacije"). His original architecture was later unfortunately deformed by the users with different unnecessary adaptations. ("poznejši uporabniki pa so objekte brez vsakega spoštovanja do arhitekta, obenem pa tudi brez vsakega občutka za nujnost vizualne celovitosti nekega naselja ali posameznega objekta, arbitrarno prirejali in jih maličili z zastekljevanjem balkonov, ograjevanjem atrijev in drugimi povsem neprimernimi posegi.") --Eleassar (t/p) 16:14, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, Miha, I don't think your reasoning is good. There is one country that we know of, France, that has a TOO for architecture that does not include all buildings. As far as I know there is no other country that does not include all architecture under copyright. In addition, almost all countries' copyright law calls out "architecture" -- one word, while Slovenia's is unusual in more comprehensively calling out "works of architecture such as sketches, plans, and built structures in the field of architecture, urban planning, and landscape architecture". I do not, therefore, see how you can claim that Slovenia's TOO for architecture is high without any case law to support that claim. By your reasoning, the TOO could be at the level of Eero Saarinen and nothing simpler would qualify for a copyright.
Or, to take my favorite example -- if you were to sit down and paint a copy of a Renoir, your copy would have its own copyright anywhere in the world. In several countries, a photograph of a Renoir has its own copyright. Given that, how can you claim that an original building -- similar, to be sure, to others, but still newly designed for a particular location, does not have a copyright? .     Jim . . . .

Files in Category:Črni Kal viaduct[edit]

I propose that the files listed in Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Črni Kal viaduct are undeleted. The Črni Kal viaduct might have been a huge construction success and include some great engeneering achievements (for instance a special fence that prevents cars from being blown away even during extreme burja winds), but none of these is an arhitectural sollution on its own (which is copyrighted per ZASP; see COM:FOP#Slovenia). From this point of view, this viaduct is nothing special. Viaducts (in contrasts) with bridges have much more ubiquity design which aims at providing maximal usability. They are common (at least throughout the Europe), and there are no records that someone would posses a patent for such viaduct design. --Miha (talk) 14:13, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Per article 5: "Copyright works are individual intellectual creations in the domain of literature, science, and art, which are expressed in any mode, unless otherwise provided by this Act."[13] This includes works of architecture and works of engineering. Of course, the viaduct counts as an engineering achievement, as it was awarded the highest national engineering award. And for the architecture, this text reads: "Kljub temu pa nas tudi dandanes osupne odličnost v oblikovanju mostov, predvsem v primerih, ko imajo arhitekti pri sodelovanju s konstrukcijskimi inženirji več kot le obrobno vlogo. Viadukt Črni Kal je zmaga človeka nad naravno topografijo. Čeprav je arhitekt formalno v ozadju, je njegova vloga odločilna." [Despite this, the design of bridges amazes us also today, especially in cases where architects have more than just a minor role in the collaboration with construction engineers. Črni Kal Viaduct is a win of the man against the natural topography. Even though the architect is formally in the background, his role is crucial." Twenty-five percent of people who voted in this architectural web portal see Črni Kal Viaduct as the building that has most significantly shaped the architecture of the last 20 years in Slovenia. I hope this makes it clear enough to you that this is not "just some viaduct".[14] You may read about the viaduct's architecture also here. --Eleassar (t/p) 15:04, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose You write that it is an own work by yourself, yet you tell that the author is both unknown and dead, meaning that it is not an own work by you at all, but the work of some other person. Additionally, the deletion log claims that the file is a copyright violation of one of the images at http://ciclismodeportugal.blogspot.de/2012/08/ciclistas-portugueses-de-z-dos-anos.html and you can't make images like those using w:Paint.net (you need a camera instead). This image can't be uploaded to Commons until it is in the public domain in both the United States and Portugal.
In the United States, the photo enters the public domain 95 years after it was taken if it has been published, 120 years after it was taken if it hasn't been published (if the photographer is anonymous) or 70 years after the death of the photographer (if the photographer isn't anonymous). No evidence has been presented that the photo has been published, so without further information, we would have to assume that it hasn't been published. The photo is obviously not yet 120 years old, and there is a huge possibility that the photographer might have survived for more than 4 years after the photo was taken, so the photographer might not yet have been dead for 70 years.
In Portugal, the photo enters the public domain 70 years after it was taken (if it is anonymous and unpublished), 70 years after it was published (if it is anonymous and published within 70 years after it was taken) or 70 years after the photographer died (if it isn't anonymous). You claim that the photographer is anonymous, but you haven't provided any evidence that this is the case, so the claim can't be verified, and it would have to be assumed that it isn't anonymous.
Also please refrain from posting the same request at multiple different places. --Stefan4 (talk) 09:28, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
  • When I claim to be the author, I mean that using the original photo, I used the tools of paint.net to create that image. Very soon I will have permission from the Portuguese National State Archive "Torre do Tombo" (Portuguese State) to add the picture.

Thanks.
Best Regards,
Eduardo Lopes

PS: Just in time...
You are ridiculous with that policy. You have a very rigorous policy with the rights (copyright) of the images, while you maintains not serious articles on Wikipedia.

I thought this was a liitle model of a tower and since Eleassar connected this DR with Commons:Deletion requests/File:Borovnica viaduct model.jpg, which seems like a comparably simple model, I deleted the visitor's box under the same understanding. If I was wrong, and this little tower model isn't a creative artwork, than I have no objection to its being restored. INeverCry 05:38, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for these harsh words, I was just pissed by those masses of unjustified DR by this user. He see copyright problems in about everything. --Denniss (talk) 06:48, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Denniss. I understand. INeverCry 07:24, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Denniss. I understand that you see the DR for this image as unjustified. I proposed the image in question for deletion because, as already stated, Commons:Deletion requests/File:Borovnica viaduct model.jpg seems like a comparably simple model. I don't see any difference between the two objects that would make one copyrightable and the other not. If there is such a difference, please point it out so that we may discuss it and potentially undelete one or both images. Mind also that I at first refrained from nominating the viaduct image, but it was then proposed by another user, whom I see as experienced in these matters, and was eventually deleted by another experienced administrator. Therefore, I have assumed that it has been done correctly. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:13, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
  • This is a photo of a little box people put money in, right? (Do correct me if I've misunderstood). It looks like a purely functional object to me with no creativity or originality, and I think you have to blow the law and site policy completely out of proportion to find a copyright violation here. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:56, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
It's actually a model of Category:Aljaž Tower and contains a summit register. I still don't see how it differs from the viaduct model. --Eleassar (t/p) 18:50, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Forgive my ignorance, but does the visitor's box have a purpose beyond decoration? Do visitors, for example, leave messages in it (does the door open?) as something of a mountaineering guestbook of sorts? If so, I'm inclined to support undeletion on the basis of it being a useful article - which would likely be the salient distinction between this and the viaduct model. Эlcobbola talk 19:06, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
    It has such a role. Why would this influence the copyright status? --Eleassar (t/p) 19:26, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

thank you,Xenof ppd (talk) 08:09, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

A cover is usually copyrighted like any work, and making a scan is basically just making a copy, so that cannot be done without permission of the copyright holder. We don't allow images on a "fair use" basis. A small minority of album covers may be so simple that they are below the threshold of originality and thus not able to be copyrighted, but beyond that there are very few covers here.

File:Detail of Moscow City, short sleeves show this is not a winter picture .jpg[edit]

Deleted as "out of project scope" by an administrator who was too closely involved to perform the deletion.

Recently User:A.Savin nominated File:Moscow City.jpg for deletion, asserting, in part, that the exif info showed signs of forgery, and that although the exif data said the image was taken in June, it was a "winter picture".

I zoomed in on the pedestrians, thinking perhaps the nominator noticed they were wearing winter jackets. On the contrary the pedestrians were in short sleeves.

I snipped File:Detail of Moscow City, short sleeves show this is not a winter picture .jpg to demonstrate that this was not a winter scene after all. Nominator deleted the image. I suggest the nominator should not have deleted this derivative image, because it could gives the unfortunate appearance they were trying to artificially bolster their delete arguments for File:Moscow City.jpg. Geo Swan (talk) 00:19, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

  • It is in scope since it provides educational value, although should probably be renamed. Even if it's contentious that it's in scope, the image should not have been speedy deleted by the admin with the ax to grind. Sinnamon (talk) 04:01, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Taboulistan.jpg [edit]

Bonjour, J'aimerais beaucoup que vous restauriez cette page du Taboulistan car elle est super bien réalisé et surtout que sur wikipédia nous trouvons beaucoup de sujet de fiction. Pour restaurer cette page, il suffit de spécifier que c'est un Pays imaginé par Mickel Youn pour le film " Vive la France" et qui reste un Pays de fiction. En titre, à côté de Taboulistan, vous précisez la phrase que je viens d'évoquer et je penses que cette page à tout à fait sa place sur votre site pour informer les lecteurs qu'un film à été créé autour d'un Pays "le Taboulistan" imaginé par Mickael Youn dans le film "Vive la France" sortie le 20 Février 2013 dans les salles de cinéma.

Merci de m'avoir lu. En espérant qu'avec ces modifications cette page pourra voir officiellement le jour. Cordialement M. S.R

Bonjour, Il n'y a jamais eu de fichier de ce nom sur Wikimedia Commons. Si vous voulez parler de la page sur Wikipédia, il faudrait vous adresser à Wikipédia. Mais normalement l'endroit pour écrire les éléments relatifs au film est la page sur le film : Vive la France (film, 2013), en supposant que l'information soit pertinente.

File:Ryuho Okawa 2009 trimmed.jpg[edit]

Undeletion request. The image is a capture from an election broadcast on TV in 2009. This broadcast is defined as "political speeches and government proceedings", which are not protected by copyrights and can be freely reproduced in compliance with the Copyright Law of Japan (see article 40 of 著作権法 (Copyright Law) and article 150 of 公職選挙法 (Public Officers Election Act) of Japan). This is the same case as [16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21], [22] etc.--Graham6p (talk) 16:18, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

There are two copyrights, though: 1) the speech and 2) the video recording of it. The speech may well be PD as "political speeches and government proceedings", but what is the status of the video recording? Эlcobbola talk 16:22, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
The first paragraph of article 40 of Copyright Law of Japan permits the use of political speeches and government proceedings "regardless of means". And the third paragraph says this rule applies also to the broadcasted contents. I think there is no danger of violation about the use of captured images. (Even the upload of the videos to the YouTube has been publicly permitted: [23].) --Graham6p (talk) 18:42, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Verily, broadcasters are allowed to broadcast the speech using any means (written, verbal, video, etc.) without infringing it. That is not the issue, however; the issue is that there is a second copyright: a video of people reading the speech. This video is a completely separate work and has its own copyright. That people have uploaded vidoes to YouTube is not relevant. Эlcobbola talk 18:55, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
About the video as a separated work, this is an exception and its copyright is not protected by Japanese law (please refer to the article 40 of Copyright Law of Japan, as well as the article 2 if you need the definition of the "work" whose copyright is protected by the Japanese law). And w:NHK and the Japanese government, who are the the broadcaster of these videos, should have 著作隣接権 (certain rights called neighbouring on copyrights concerning broadcasting, reproduction, etc.) but they declared that they do not have these rights and permit the use by third parties (Cf. [24]). I show the YouTube as an example of the use by third party in compliance with the laws (see [25], p. 56 for a specialist's opinion on the use on YouToube). --Graham6p (talk) 20:41, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

"今回MIAUが共有した動画は、各政党が選挙のために政策を主張した「政治上の演説」(著作権法第40条)に当たり、著作権者(各政党)の許諾は不要と考えられます。"

It sounds as if the films from this Youtube channel are licensed as political speeches under 第40条 of the copyright law. The law says that you may not use collections of works by the same author (同一の著作者のものを編集して利用する). Does this make 第40条 unfree? --Stefan4 (talk) 21:18, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

If I understand well, it is not relevant. The sentence "同一の著作者のものを編集して利用する場合を除き" refer to the case in which, for example, someone gather all the videos of certain person from various elections and make an anthology of his speech. The law restricts this type of editing.--Graham6p (talk) 22:18, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, but it must be possible to use Commons images for any purpose. I'm not sure if it is possible to combine the images in some way which would render 第40条 unacceptable. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:25, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Another thought: the copyright statement from miau.jp mentions "著作権者(各政党)" = "the copyright holders (various political parties)". Was NHK or anyone else involved in making the films, and is there anyone other than the political parties who might own a share of the copyright? --Stefan4 (talk) 21:22, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
According to the article 150 of 公職選挙法, only NHK and/or the political parties can be the author (and sharer of copyright), but the Japanese government will share the neighbouring rights because the broadcasting is under the control of Election Administration Committee. About your previous comment, I found the possible secondary use from the files uploaded to Commons might be an infringement against the restriction "同一の著作者のものを編集して利用する場合を除き".

File:Richard Bär mit C. V. Raman 13.5.2010.jpg and other uploads by Jivee Blau[edit]

I can't say for sure whether I advocate undeletion without having seen the file description or the supposed uploader request to delete, but the rationale given in the deletion log ("Uploader requested deletion of a recently uploaded unused file") is completely invalid. The file was uploaded in May 2010, so it wasn't recently uploaded. It is included in File:Indian People 1.jpg and was delinked from the file description page. It was also delinked from five main namespace pages on four other projects, so it wasn't unused. The file also survived a previous deletion discussion.

I see that several other files originally uploaded by Jivee Blau were also deleted at the same time with the same rationale:

To my understanding, the conditions expressed in said legal notice are enough to support a free status (enough to allow the contents in lamoncloa.gob.es files to be uploaded to commons).

As you can see, the following provisos are declared:

  1. The information available on this website may be reproduced, whether in whole or in part. Modification, distribution and communication thereof [..] is therefore authorised.
  2. Said statement has an exception: It is not permitted to distort the content of the information. To my understanding, this is just a was to express one of the moral rights] in the Continental European copyright regulations ( the right to the integrity of the work; it applies to every single work in such jurisdictions and we haven't considered that said moral right prevents us from using the works). In fact, the Berne Convention describes it as Independent of the author's economic rights, and even after the transfer of the said rights, the author shall have the right to claim authorship of the work and to object to any distortion, mutilation or other modification of, or other derogatory action in relation to the said work, which would be prejudicial to the author's honor or reputation.
  3. And another: The user must cite the source and the date of the documents subject to reproduction. To my understanding again, it asks for attribution.

As Rd232 (talk · contribs) stated:

" The GobiernoEspana license statement looks to me like it allows derivatives and commercial use. Problems come when there is wording which suggests intention to limit derivatives/commercial use, or limiting to use on Wikipedia, or otherwise ambiguous. An explicit statement that commercial use is allowed isn't necessary if there is an unqualified general statement allowing uses without limitation."

Moreover, the following deletion requests (done with the same argument that the one in Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Gobierno de España) ended up in a keep result:

  • Hm. The tag should have been nominated before the category, to have a discussion on the terms itself. It is nonsensical to delete images validly using the tag but still have the tag as a valid license. I do not think that is the correct context to invoke the precautionary principle. The part about "also being an edict of government" in the United States is not true; it may be true of the text of laws from the source cite but most works are not "edicts". As for "Modification, distribution and communication thereof, except for any content over which third parties hold intellectual or industrial property rights, is therefore authorised" ... that is a pretty complete permission. It does not qualify itself on commercial use, so the plain meaning is that commercial use would be allowed as well. The problem with some statements is many folks sort of assume that their images would not be used commercially... but this seems to be a more considered statement than that. I think I'd lean keep on the tag and would support undeletion. It's not strictly true that we need an explicit statement that commercial use is allowed, just that it seems fairly clear that was considered and is not restricted in that way. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:17, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
If the website changes their conditions in future to more restrictive conditions, can external reusers still reuse the files under the old conditions offered on Commons? (i.e.: does the website permission allow perpetual redistribution under same conditions? Does it even allow redistribution?) --Martin H. (talk) 10:47, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
It definitely allows redistribution. The perpetual part I suppose is arguable, but usually we would just stop allowing further uploads from the site if they changed the terms. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:25, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
With regards to Martin's comments, I understand that said comments would apply also to any file in Category:Copyrighted free use. I haven't seen any request on such "perpetual" right with the files in said category. Therefore, I assume that such a explicit requirement is not currently requested by our project. --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 22:06, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
It is a concern; if the license is such that they could change it and we would be required to remove all material (and derivatives thereof) from the project, that's not a good situation. It's not really "free" if the works can be yanked. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:21, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

These images should stayed deleted. As noted by the requester, the permission only allows reproduction of "information" so long as the content is not "distorted". This indicates that derivative works are not expressly permitted. Additionally, the use of the word "information" is also problematic; are photos "information"? For all intents and purposes, it appears to me that the site refers to text. There are simply too many if, buts, maybes in terms of the ambiguity of their terms that COM:PRP takes precedence over our individual interpreations. Someone really needs to, as noted in the DR reasoning, contact their offices and get a clear and explicit release for all materials on the website. russavia (talk) 00:23, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

No, "distorted" is in relation to moral rights. That's pretty common. You can't change the meaning and still claim it's the original work. It explicitly says "modification" is allowed; that is derivative works. They must be labeled that way of course. They use "information" as a general term it would seem. It's a pretty common word in public record laws and it generally does refer to all types of information, be it written/photographic/aural/etc. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:21, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
I think I Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion here, unless folks think "perpetual" issue is indeed a problem -- I tend to not think it's a big deal (there is no language reserving termination rights) but it is a little bit ambiguous. Carl Lindberg (talk) 00:15, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Of course the perpetuality/irrevocability is an issue; so we should not be hosting any files on this project which do not meet our licencing conditions. A clear release needs to be obtained -- has anyone bothered to seek such a release as yet? Curious. russavia (talk) 19:25, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
It's a concern in general of course, but I'm not convinced it's a serious issue with this particular license. Normally, if you don't qualify a term, then you get full benefit of that term. It's best if a license says "non-revocable", but if any mention of that is lacking in a carefully-considered license (i.e. not explicitly revocable and under what situations), normally that means the restriction does not exist. Similar that we don't require the explicit mention of commercial use being allowed, as if there are no restrictions mentioned on types of use, then normally that means *all* uses (which includes commercial use) is allowed. Vague license-like statements made by individuals can be harder to determine of course, and is where we need to be careful. But this doesn't seem anything like that, and feels to me like if they change the licensing terms, we just can't upload any more images after that date, *not* that we have to remove all existing images. We have taken the same approach with many websites when terms change. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:56, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, Russavia, but I fail to understand why this permission is not "clear" enough. We have plenty of files under "copyrighted free use" templates that have exactly the same features as these ones. Of course that I'd prefer to have a clear CC-BY-SA (or PD) license (we're working on that) but I can't see any difference in the degree of freedom this license allows when compared to any file within Category:Copyrighted free use provided that. Let's take the files in Category:Mexican Presidency Copyright. I can't see any perpetuality statement. Same with Category:Mexican Senate Copyright. Same with Category:Images from IPPAR... Except the perpetuality/irrevocability issue (which is not enforced in the examples I've provided) all the conditions in the granted license are free enough to enable images from La Moncloa to be hosted here. I'd say again Symbol support vote.svg Support according to commons policies as applied to similar cases. Best regards --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 21:36, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

That Template:IPPAR isnt free too. First commercial reuse isnt allowed, so its unfree anyway. Maybe in the past commercial reuse from that website was allowed, but today they have changed the terms of serivce. This means possibly someone reusing their content under the old terms isnt affected, but you can not longer start reusing their content. So Wikimedia Commons cant simply say: hey, its forbidden to reuse content from their site, but we have the same content, so simply take it from us". We are not a licensing party, only a reuser. And if the licensor stops distributing, we cant continue. This means ifa licensor not allows perpetual redistribution of the content (for any purpose) than we cant host it in the first place. See Commons:Project scope#Required_licensing_terms. All files using Template:IPPAR are copyright violations, we never had permission to allow others downloading the file from our server, we not have permission to allow this perpetually. --Martin H. (talk) 22:05, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
I see your point. But simply remove the IPPAR example and focus on the Mexican ones (or in any person assigning a {{Copyrighted free use provided that}} license). Moreover, when it comes to perpetuality/irrevocability we have an issue, but if we force to use a {{Licensereview}} we can acknowledge that, at a given time, the license terms were the ones that allow its use in commons (and therefore, the files issued with such a license are valid, but not the ones with the new licensing terms). I'm a strict enforcer of copyrights statements (see my contributions in here, in a much more critical issue), but I can't see personally any danger in this source. If, in the future, it changes and the valid license was not acknowledged for the uploaded files, we'll simply remove them and stop uploading new ones). --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 22:22, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing those templates to our attention. They have now been sent for deletion as well. I really do hope we aren't hosting bucket loads of images from websites with such vague licencing terms; it places us in a precarious position as a repository. russavia (talk) 04:56, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Do you mean the La Moncloa licensing terms are vague? They aren't. On the other hand, I fail to see in {{Attribution}} any mention to perpetuality/irrevocability (The copyright holder of this file allows anyone to use it for any purpose, provided that the copyright holder is properly attributed. Redistribution, derivative work, commercial use, and all other use is permitted.). If such a condition is not asked when assigning such a template, why should it be required when analyzing the licensing terms of La Moncloa. In fact, there's no need to {{GobiernoEspaña}}, since {{Attribution}} is completely equivalent according to the wording of both the {{Attribution}} and the licensing terms of La Moncloa. --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 19:54, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Perpetuality and irrevocability are key components of our licencing policy. Whilst licencing may be ok for now, this could change tomorrow if they change their licencing terms; and that is where licences being perpetual and irrevocable are required by our policy. russavia (talk) 06:32, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Nothing about the text would indicate that it's revocable. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:28, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Moreover, even if that unlikely event happens, nothing prevents us from deleting then the files. --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 18:41, 15 February 2013 (UTC) PS: however, even if I acknowledge the acceptable licensing terms, {{Attribution}}, intentionally or not, forgets to say anything regarding perpetuality (or I'm missing something) --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 18:41, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Chávez Plakat Kuba.jpg [edit]

I don´t know what is the problemwith that immage. Maybe the person, who deleted it, thought, that it was not my own image. But I have taken this picture myself during my visit in cuba. Maybe it has been deleted, because it´s a picture of an wallpaper. But i think there will be no problems, because it´s propaganda. It is made by the state to convince the people not to earn money. For example pictures of statues of sadam hussein are no problem too. So i hope you can undelete this picture.--Montarde (talk) 11:30, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support The problem is that it is a derivative work of the photograph of Chavez and therefore infringes on that photographer's copyright. I think, though, that Cuba's freedon of panorama rule probably covers it. That is not completely clear for billboards, but we usually assume that they are permanent -- put up for their entire life -- and therefore covered by FOP. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:51, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

what is this freedom panorama rule?--Montarde (talk) 12:55, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

You will see a link to a reasonably good explanation of FOP in my comment above. Basically, every created work, such as the subject billboard, has a copyright. A photograph of such a work is a derivative work which infringes on that copyright. Derivative works are not permitted on Commons without the permission of the copyright holder of the work that was photographed -- this is in addition to the permission of the photographer.
In approximately fifty countries, that is the end of the story. In approximately fifty other countries, there is a special exception to the copyright laws (which we call "FOP") that allows use of photographs of certain copyrighted works that are displayed in public. The specifics of that exception vary from country to country, as to what objects may be photographed, where they must be, and how long they must be there. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:00, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

if i understand the text right, there is no problem in cuba, or i am wrong?--141.70.16.201 01:57, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

You are probably correct. The only question is whether a billboard is permanent enough to satisfy the Cuban FOP exception. I think probably yes, but some of our colleagues may disagree, so I have not simply restored this. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:25, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

in cuba you can see a lot of wallpapers, which have been hanging there for decades. so i think this is permanent enough.--141.70.16.201 21:10, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Straddle injury.jpg[edit]

This is a procedural undeletion request. This image is a close-up depiction of the injured vulva and surrounding region of a 5-year-old girl. Its original file description is still available at File:Straddle injury.jpg. The image was 1425 x 1306 pixels and included the following EXIF data:

Because of the high level of risk in this case, instead of filing a normal deletion request I have speedy deleted and filed an undeletion request. I have no opinion on whether to retain the image, as I am unfamiliar with the legal issues involved. Dcoetzee (talk) 02:05, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Uphold deletion - I am party to having seen the image, bearing in mind I work in the medical profession with minors (I'm a children's doctor working in Germany), and I am dubious as to the origin of the photograph concerned. I understand that "medical images" may be kept here, and who knows - it may have been taken in a medical setting, but there is nothing in the image which would give any indication of that, and no mention made by the uploader that this is the case - if there were, then maybe permission could have been sent to OTRS. As it stands however, what the image shows is a horizontal, front view of the bruised and damaged vulva of a 5 year old sexual abuse victim (distinguishable from other less common straddle injuries due to unnatural damage to the vaginal entrance and bruising on the Labia and Pubic Triangle) - and without a proper source, there is no way for us to know how that image came to be in the possession of the uploader. For that reason, I ask Commons to uphold deletion of this image. BarkingFish (talk) 02:15, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Uphold deletion Any image of a child where there may be concern for matters of personal privacy, or legal issues, should be treated conservatively and action should be taken where there is potential for images hosted on Wikimedia Commons to cause distress or damage for the child or others such as the family, guardians or photographer, regardless of whether this is an existing verified complaint from these parties. I find Dcoetzee's precautionary deletion and explanation a mellow and sensible approach and I do not believe anyone needs to see this image to support that judgement given the circumstances. Should this be an appropriate image within educational scope, then its nature based on the above description requires a credible and verifiable release statement before undeletion can be considered. -- (talk) 03:49, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep deleted as per Barkingfish. I have notified legal to bring this to their attention. russavia (talk) 06:15, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment: the EXIF data indicates use of a Nikon D50, a camera that I would consider obsolete in 2013 when the photograph is labeled to have been taken; the photographer used a user-friendly programme for close-up photography, and an all-purpose low-cost kit lens. If the EXIF data is genuine, I would take it as an indice towards an image that was more likely not taken in a medical setting: I would expect a physician taking such a photograph to use specialised lenses or a ringflash, rather than firing no flash and cranking up sensibility to 400 ISO as here. The legal implications of the incident represented here would make it worthwhile for the examining physician to take a proper photograph of the medical condition; can those who have seen the image confirm whether the sharpness and lightning were adequate? I stress no definite conclusion can be reached with such a casual examination of the EXIF, but the natural implications would tend to confirm what BarkingFish suggests. Rama (talk) 07:49, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Author's comment: I took this picture and it was a straddle injury, not sexual abuse. (**link to image removed**) - if you look at it again, you will see that it's a vertical bruise, which can hardly happen as a result of sexual abuse. She fell on a metal bar on a playground. Either way it's a medical photograph and it's within the educational scope. And as for the camera, this is the one which is used in the hospital where I work, not all countries have the money to buy the most modern devices. --Wightmath (talk) 12:35, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Rather than discussing details here, please do email permissions-commons@wikimedia.org and one of the OTRS volunteers will be able to explain what is required in terms of being able to verify your release, without compromising your open identity on Wikimedia Commons.

      • OK, I've sent the mail to OTRS.--Wightmath (talk) 16:24, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
        • Thank you for your reply and for your patience. My comment on the camera was not meant to be judgemental either way, but only to describe what I could see in the EXIF of the image, in a clinical fashion, and without having seeing the photograph. Having seen the photograph, I would say that the orientation (photograph frontal with respect to the organs and not to the patient; I had misunderstood BarkingFish's comment on this point) and the presence of a white cloth make it a likely medical photograph. Of course, this is no more proof of anything than my previous comment was. Rama (talk) 06:02, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Thanks for your reply. Vertical bruising is possible in a sexual abuse issue, as a result of an attempt to force the victim's legs apart, or wider than they would naturally go. I do confirm however, that the bruising you indicate may also occur within the setting you describe, and as such my initial assessment of the image could be incorrect. It does strike me as odd however, that the significant bleed under the skin is only on one side of the vulva, indicating a fresh injury, and yet the bruising going between the vulva, through both sides of the crotch and down to the buttocks is icteric, and indicates an old injury. If this is indeed a medical photograph, it definitely needs a release, and you should have mentioned that when you uploaded it. I still say we uphold deletion - I have concerns here that I simply cannot ignore. BarkingFish (talk) 13:27, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
      • I've never heard about such a case of forcing the victim's legs apart and I hope I never will. The parents took her to hospital the next day and there was no fresh injury.--Wightmath (talk) 16:24, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
  • The ticket is ticket:2013021810006889. Wightmath, I hope you can understand our concerns here on Commons, and hope you are not taking this discussion personally at all. The problem that we might have is that whilst medical photographs are clearly within our scope, without further information in relation to the actual image we are between a rock and a hard place. You mentioned that you took this photo as part of your duties at a hospital; would it be possible to get some sort of confirmation from hospital managers that the photo is indeed what you say it is, and perhaps with providing some further information as to the injuries sustained, etc. Such images are indeed important for a project like ours; if it was published in say a medical journal it would be much easier for us to decide to keep it. Would something official from the hospital be a possibility in this case? All information via OTRS is totally confidential. russavia (talk) 16:53, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Since I have questioned my own judgement on the issue, and would rather now stand back and let others deal, I'm going to ask another medic who is active within Wikimedia and Wikipedia, Dr. James Heilman, M.D. (User:Jmh649) to poke his head in on this matter and give his opinion. I don't see many of this kind of injury now, since my work outside of child welfare, and I think a fresh look will help. Regards, BarkingFish (talk) 17:31, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
    • I've not yet received any e-mail back, but I really can't provide any sort of confirmation from the hospital management. Is there a reason why you insist on this? --Wightmath (talk) 17:51, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
      • Hi Wightmath, the issue is how on OTRS a volunteer would address the need for good quality validation of the source and that the release has been appropriate both for photographer and model. Responses from our OTRS volunteers (they are not paid a penny, I used to be one) may be a little slow, but as the OTRS ticket number is linked here, it will help to get attention on it from an experienced volunteer. I would recommend avoiding opening up the detail of what might work as suitable validation on this noticeboard, as this is something that can be resolved by email discussion through OTRS without having to unnecessarily explain or accidentally reveal in public who you work for, your professional details or the nature of the child in the photograph. If you have not heard anything for a couple of days, then you may want to leave a note on mine or Russavia's user talk pages (or even better, use the "E-mail this user" from those pages) so that we can ask around for why a volunteer has not responded yet. Thanks -- (talk) 18:58, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Well I'm lost... - I said I would ask Jmh649 for an opinion, which I did (My question and Dr. Heilman's answer). Unfortunately, the answer there leaves me lost, and puts us no further forward. Never mind, I can do no more than try. BarkingFish (talk) 22:35, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Nicholls, Alex.jpg [edit]

Requesting undeletion as this image was inexplicably deleted in September 2012, with the curious rationale of "who is this man?" being given by the nominator. Despite the request not being supported by any user, and it indeed being questioned by the image uploader Jonesy702 (talk · contribs), it was deleted. The image was in use in the English-language Wikipedia at the time of its deletion and as far as I'm aware was properly licenced. Mattythewhite (talk) 03:46, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are three problems here. The first is that since the image appears at http://www.johnboy-rock.de/download/Johnboy_Banner_klein.jpg, a web site that does not have a free license, and we have no way of knowing whether User:Mcmlxxix has any connection with the band, our policy requires permission from info@johnboy-rock.de using the procedure at Commons:OTRS.
The second is that a Google search shows up no evidence of notability. We do not generally host images of bands that have not achieved some sort of recognition.
The third is that the image probably violates our policy on promotional material. While (assuming the notability question can be addressed) we would be happy to have images of the band or band members, a collage that includes the trademarked logo is inherently promotional and not very useful. .     Jim . . . .

File:Brook Bernacchi.jpg [edit]

According to Section 17 in Chapter 528 (Copyright Ordinance) of the Law of Hong Kong, the copyright of this work had expired in Hong Kong. This is either because the period of 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the author died had already ended, or the work is of unknown authorship and the period of 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was first made has ended.--Lmmnhn (talk) 16:49, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose According to the deletion discussion, it seems that this is a photo of Brook Bernacchi which was probably taken by someone else. The shortest possible copyright term in Hong Kong is 50 years since creation, and according to the deletion discussion, this photo was taken in the 1950s, i.e. less than 50 years before the URAA date. This is protected for 95 years since publication in the United States and thus not permitted on Commons. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:33, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Template:HAER[edit]

This template was around for several years before being moved to a more appropriate title and converted into a redirect in 2009. No problems. However, it was unexpectedly deleted last April as an "Unused and implausible, broken, or cross-namespace redirect", and this is unhelpful. Judging by the transclusions of the current name (Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:PD-USGov-NPS-HAER), it likely appears in old revisions of thousands of pages, so it's far from being implausible. Even if it were just on the pages where I'd seen it in the past, we'd have some hundreds of pages that were using this redirect for a long time. Nyttend (talk) 16:59, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello excuse my bad english first. The File was upload on 2012-05-25 by User:Stephan Klage. On 2013-02-07 the File was moved by User:Holger1959 -> Log. He moved many pics this day [26]. The description and license lost during displacement, as in many other file. See also COM:AN (diff). In the Log you can see, that the File has the Description and Licensing by the first day. Cheers --Knochen ﱢﻝﱢ‎  21:53, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

I've looked at the deleted revisions, and the file never had a license. All Holger1959 did was add a {{no license}} tag. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:08, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
All Files from Stephan Klage lost their Description and licence after moving. diff. In the log of the file ist standing ({{Information |Description= |Source={{own}} |Date=25.05.2012 |Author= Stephan Klage |Permission= |other_versions= }} ) --Knochen ﱢﻝﱢ‎  22:20, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
There was no move and no information was lost. The problem is that a license was never specified (and remember that I can see the deleted content)—nothing in that edit summary is a license. There's a source, date, and author, but no license tag like, for example, {{CC-BY-SA 3.0}}. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:36, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
Forget it. I can not explain it in English. --Knochen ﱢﻝﱢ‎  22:45, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose HJ Mitchell is correct. The file has an author ("Klage") and a source ("own"), but no license. It also has no description and no categories, so it cannot be useful. Finally since it is a photograph of a plaque that includes material that would be under copyright in many countries, so it may be a copyright violation. Without a license, a description, and a location, we cannot restore it.
Also, there is no reason to worry about your English here. Use whatever language suits you best. We can easily translate, or recruit colleagues for around 40 languages.

No, that is not correct. As Admins, both HJ Mitchell and I can look at the whole history of the file back to the original upload. There was never any description or license on the image. The file was originally uploaded as File:R0010109.JPG by Stephan Klage on 25 May 2012 as shown at Special:DeletedContributions/Stephan_Klage (which is accessible only to Admins). Holger1959 did not move the file -- he simply added the tag {{no license|month=February|day=6|year=2013}}, nothing else. This has nothing to do with the bug you cite above.

Image:Waterfront park downtown charleston sc.jpg[edit]

Hi! I can’t find my deletion in the deletion log, so I’m not sure why my picture was removed. According to the licensing and FAQ pages, I believe that I can add a picture that is a view of a public area? You’ll see the picture being used on this page: http://www.searchforcharlestonrealestate.com/. The bottom of the page reads “All text and other written information on this site is copyrighted. However, the images and photos are available under a free license.” Does this not meet the licensing requirements? Any explanation would be very helpful. I would like to contribute more to Wikipedia (specifically regarding Charleston since I’m a native) and want to make sure that I’m complying with your rules so that my work isn’t deleted. Thank you so much for your time! Lkeadle (talk) 21:29, 25 February 2013 (UTC) (lkeadle)

Sorry if I came off as a little brusque. I was just looking for a concise way to express my ideas, and in hindsight it probably wasn't the best way. -- King of ♠ 13:32, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Example.jpg [edit]

I dont know why this text is not in polish. It is to complicate for me to unerstand everything in English, and the google translator doesnt help enough. I just want to ask for not deleting the files because they are my property. I made a mistake while publishing them - I dont know how to fix it now.

Thank you for any help.
