File:Yes for Shared Parenting - med.jpg Request Undeletion[edit]

Hi

I request undeletion.

The template was purchased from Imagechef.com. This was done in the usual way. http://www.imagechef.com/ic/upgrade-imagechef.jsp

The Imagechef webpage states that:

Benefits
No Ads!
Remove ImageChef logo and watermark from images you make
Tools to resize images to exactly what you want
Use ImageChef images for your business newsletter, professional blogs, flyers, advertisments and more
Higher resolution images (30% bigger for most images)
Access to 'Silver Level' effects in the Sketchpad tool
New content and features added every few weeks!

As evidence of that, the Imagechef watermark has been been removed and the file is considerably larger than the sample. This is also in accordance with the Imagechef Terms of Use located at: http://www.imagechef.com/ic/tos.html The words on the template state "yes you can park here" I edited the wording to read "Yes for Shared Parenting" There is no infringement of copyright whatsover.

John Flanagan — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jef04 (talk • contribs) 09:27, 31 March 2013‎ (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The Terms of use are, among others things:

"13.7 Paid Subscriptions Unless you have an active ImageChef Pro paid subscription user, you will not use ImageChef images that you generate on the site for a commercial or professional purpose such as for advertising, printing flyers, to sell merchandise, for professional presentations, to sell real estate or for any other similar purpose. Paid subscribers may use imagechef images for such purposes. Once your ImageChef paid subscription has terminated, you may continue to use images that were generated on ImageChef's site during the subscription period. If you are a business user, you will not authorize any third party to use the ImageChef content or resell license or otherwise make the ImageChef content available for use or distribution separately from your business."

This clearly restricts commercial use by any person who is not now or formerly an ImageChef Pro paid subscriber. Commons requires that all images be free for commercial use. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:20, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Toyota Alphard G's Love Live!.jpg and File:Toyota Alphard G's Love Live! rear.jpg[edit]

These are photos of an official Itasha of Love Live! and Toyota. It was taken at Toyota's showroom 'Amlux' where everyone can take photos. And the photos aren't of the character itself but of the whole car such as File:Toyota Estima Itasha 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon.jpg, about which was discussed whether to be deleted and wasn't deleted.

The photos doesn't intend to show the characters but to show the car itself, so they show the fact that Toyota and Love Live! officially made Itasha, which is usable for Wikipedia. (If the camera I used was cheap and the character was unrecognizable, it would be OK? ... It's ridiculous.)

If the deletion was right, it means all photos of Category:Itasha and many photos of Category:Advertising vehicles and so on must be deleted.--TTTNIS (talk) 17:03, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Tarotcards.jpg [edit]

G'day,

this Tarot cards deck has been deleted because of lack of evidence that the deck is old ( see http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Tarotcards.jpg ). But if you check this page: https://sites.google.com/site/tacticclub/Home/introduction/l-histoire-du-tarot at the bottom, you can compare the 10 and the 20 of trump and check it's actualy a Piatnik brand ( see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piatnik_%26_S%C3%B6hne ), so this deck is most probably in public domain. I think this file should be undeleted.

In addition, this picture or individual cards comming from here are used in severals places in wikipedia ( e.g.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_tarot , most of cards there: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Tarot_Nouveau are cropped from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:20071103100945!Tarotcards.jpg ); if the final decision is to keep this file deleted, all these files must be removed from commons.

Cheers

It was deleted because it takes more than putting "Own work" on a file to prove that it's your own work. That the image appears to be from a press conference, is low res, and is available elsewhere online suggests that the uploader did not take the photo. If you have reason to doubt any of the uploader's other images then you are welcome to {{speedy}} them or nominate them for deletion. Of course the derivatives of a deleted file should also be deleted, which has been done. --moogsi (blah) 00:37, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Stema PMR "secera și ciocanul" pe Casa Presei Libere.JPG[edit]

Please undelete the following image: File:Stema PMR "secera și ciocanul" pe Casa Presei Libere.JPG

The image file depicts the coat of arms of the Romanian Workers' Party as it is displayed on the Casa Presei Libere building. It is not copyrighted material according to the following:

According to the Romanian Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights Law no. 8/1996 of March 14, 1996 with further amendments Chapter 3 Article 9 the following documents shall not benefit from the legal protection accorded to copyright:

   * (a) the ideas, theories, concepts, scientific discoveries, procedures, working methods, or mathematical concepts as such and inventions, contained in a work, whatever the manner of the adoption, writing, explanation or expression thereof;
   * (b) official texts of a political, legislative, administrative or judicial nature, and official translations thereof;
   * (c) official symbols of the State, public authorities and organizations, such as armorial bearings, seals, flags, emblems, shields, badges and medals;
   * (d) means of payment;
   * (e) news and press information;
   * (f) simple facts and data.

Therefore this image is assumed to be in the public domain worldwide, although some of the above categories may be subject to usage restrictions within Romania.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Being generous, the coat of arms (CoA) is at most 1/9th of the image, which many would probably argue is de minimis. As per the nomination statement, this is an issue of architecture, which is not listed above as subject to exemption. This is an image of a spire/top of a building with arches, columns, capitals and other copyrightable features, not to mention the building itself to which they are attached. That the CoA is also present does not allow us to ignore everything else in the image. Эlcobbola talk 16:56, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Hallo, meine Anfrage in Deutsch /German:

Bitte die Datei wiederherstellen. Das Bild ist von 1937, dass weiß ich weil ich diese Information selbst eingefügt habe. Als Quelle wurde von mir Kreisarchiv Gießen eingefügt, dieses steht auf dem Rand des Bildes. Anschließend wurde von User:EtNu1988 in die Beschreibung {{PD-old-70}} eingesetzt.

Ich befürchte das wird nichts werden. Die eingesetzte Lizenz PD-old-70 passt nicht wirklich, da dies erst nach 70 Jahren nach dem Tod des Urhebers gilt.

Hello,

That artwork that you see on the "capa In Soulitary - Confinement" file was designed by myself. I am the legal owner of it. So, there's no copyright violation uploading this image, for I have the copy rights.

Please, have a look at my online portfolio at: www.marcelbriani.jux.com and you will find the art there.

Can you please "undelete" it so I can use the cover artwork on the band's page?

I'm not entirely sure if it are the images i have in mind (can't view them), but if they are, then it are images from an public exhibition in which the car owner has to give permission to the organizers and audience to have its car photographed. This is because of the "missing" FOP laws on the one end and the interest of the audience on the other. Thats why nearly all organizers request this at exhibitions. Additionally the owners of the cars are to 99% happy to have their cars photographed anyway. Otherwise it wouldn't be an itasha. --/人 ‿‿ 人\ 署名の宣言 08:55, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

If I remember correctly, I once read about a lawsuit in Japan about painted vehicles, although I can't remember what the outcome was. Japanese Wikipedia lists a few similar images as fair use, see ja:Category:屋外美術を含む画像, but that category is strictly speaking only for permanently installed artworks, so Japanese Wikipedia is wrong as a vehicle isn't permanently installed. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:37, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Walker on portable style of treadmill desk.jpg[edit]

there is NO reason to delete this - you are just being a pain in the ass — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drmcbabe (talk • contribs) 2013-04-04T14:51:37 (UTC)

The image was also re-uploaded to File:Walker on portable walking - treadmill desk.jpg. I do believe the uploader is most likely the owner, but they are not responding to requests to go through OTRS (both in a prior template to their user talk page, and in a reply to a post they did to my user talk page). --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:00, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Diptera husbandry.gif[edit]

Poor close on Commons:Deletion requests/File:Diptera husbandry.gif as Barnstars have never required any EV. Penyulap 15:57, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

see the talkpage here Penyulap 16:01, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
and the discussion here Penyulap 23:24, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
I don't feel like I am going to be going out on a limb here, but this is actually one of Penyulap's funniest works, and the person who he gave the barnstar to has no problem with it. If the person he gave the barnstar to did have a problem with it, i.e. removed it from their talk page, then I could understand deleting it, but the deletion in this case was likely not needed. So I would support undeletion in this instance. russavia (talk) 18:22, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
I recall other problematic barnstars causing unwelcome hassle, some finding them abusive when put on their talk pages, and what some saw as reputational issues for Commons. I was going to have a ranty gripe and insist that Russavia give a fulsome explanation of the educational value in line with Scope; however I am running out of gripe, and I'm just looking at a graphic homoerotic ancient vase, which I'm sure was completely hilarious for its owners 2 millennia ago, and yet I appreciate it as art now. With that view, though I lean to delete due to unlikely value, I'm giving this a pass as I'm sure there is something here for me to learn and find educational about current societal attitudes, should I ever manage to live long enough to gain perspective. This is not a waiver to turn Commons into an hosting service for schoolboy pranks and chaff, so by all means occasionally and mildly take the piss, but try not to actually crap on the doorstep. Thanks -- (talk) 21:37, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I don't feel strongly about this, but the DR closure is certainly not beyond the bounds of reason. I do find it ironic that an editor who claims they created this image in the name of making Commons a friendlier place would go on to accuse the deleting admin of acting out of spite. We allow some leeway to editors to do things that benefit the projects but don't strictly fit our mission, but, this not being Flickr or one of the other social image-sharing sites, a line has to be drawn somewhere. I would suggest that this particular image falls the wrong side of that line, but like I say, I don't feel strongly. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:17, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
I would have voted to Symbol keep vote.svg Keep on the DR. I think I only saw it with the first 3 or 4 votes and I didn't expect it would end up getting deleted. Perhaps this is an example of why scope needs to be better-defined: I encourage further comment at Commons:Requests for comment/scope –⁠moogsi (blah) 21:28, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Believe or not, but I've read all the "votes". It's really interesting to see, however, that the argumentation of some of the votes supported in fact the deletion.

For example, Canoe1967 states: We have an article on w:Panda pornography and this one is very well within scope for entomologists to use for similar purposes. Unfortunately, such an article explains it very well: Panda pornography (or panda porn) refers generally to movies depicting mating pandas, intended to promote sexual arousal in captive giant pandas. Are there efforts to promote sexual intercourse in captive flies? No, there aren't (at least, Canoe hasn't been able to provide a reference). That is, this argumentation is, at most, "speculative".

Penyulap, the author of the composition, tells us that the text of the picture says Give it to me!! You're so big!! OOooh Oooohh Oooh Oooh Yeah baby!! You're so Dirty!! You smell like crap! Oh you smell like shit! etc.. No further comments (this vote in fact supports Wylve's).

JBarta, who eventually changed his vote, said in the comment of his vote keep I say, keep... just wash your hands before you come in the house you crazy kids.... You see, it seems to me that he acknowledges that this is very funny, but being funny is nothing that is, at the moment, covered in our policies about scope (we can change them, of course... we could accept whatever funny composition we could create and, hopefully, all the mobile crap the WMF wishes to dump on us).

So, in the end, there wasn't any real argument to support beyond "That's funny, why not?". And the answer to that seems to be: it's not in our scope. I won't add anything else. If you feel that commons needs such a file, it would be fine. I don't want to argue or spend to much time in, I have to admit, scarcely relevant issues. Best regards --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 22:18, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

The purpose of Barnstars continues to escape your attention, and you attribute other people's comments to me, "Penyulap, the author of the composition, tells us that the text of the picture says[...]" when I did no such thing. Penyulap 22:44, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
You affirmed my transcript of the text of the picture. Unless you're denying that's what the picture said, it seems the point of that statement escaped your attention.--Prosfilaes (talk) 04:17, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

File:La_Banda_del_Parque_(con_humo_de_color).jpg[edit]

El usuario Moogsi ha borrado la imagen "La_Banda_del_Parque_(con_humo_de_color).jpg" que yo subí a Wikimedia por violación de copyright, cuando esa foto es de mi autoría. Tras comunicarme con el usuario en su página de discusión (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Moogsi), me manifestó que la imagen la eliminó por precaución debido a que yo ya había subido anteriormente fotos que no eran propias. Con respecto a ese punto, reconozco que si subí en otras oportunidades imágenes sin consentimiento del autor, pero me parece realmente injusto que se borren fotos por si poseen derechos de autor en lugar de eliminarlas una vez que se compruebe que el usuario que la donó en realidad no fue quién la sacó. La foto fue tomada por mí en un partido correspondiente al Torneo Uruguayo, disputado el 4 de diciembre de 2011 entre Nacional y Liverpool en el Estadio Centenario. La foto la saqué con una cámara Samsung ES28. Reitero que la foto fue tomada por mí, y no me parece adecuado que se borren imágenes sin asegurarse que en verdad representen una violación de derechos de autor.

three photos being used in w:selfie[edit]

These three were deleted as out of scope, but they were being used in the new English Wikipedia article w:selfie. Among them, they illustrate some of the common features of the genre, and I'd like to add them back into the article.--ragesoss (talk) 13:42, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

I would imagine that there are a huge number of selfies made by people who have articles about them in various Wikipedias and all the selfies made by Wikimedians of themselves to use on user pages. What was there about these selfies that would not already be satisfied? The key problem here is that this rationale could be used for an indefinite number of doubtful selfies that happen to have some claimable unique feature (selfie of 8 year old, selfie of man with ginger beard, selfie of nude woman, selfie of man on horse, selfie of woman on bus, selfie of boy at party, selfie on girl in bikini...). I'm not particularly against undeletion, so long as the same undeletionist philosophy applies fairly and equally to all other types of images on Commons. -- (talk) 13:52, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, these ones were actually being used in an article. I'm not saying we should keep every selfie we get, but we should a have collection that's representative of the diversity of the genre and we should certainly keep the ones that are being used in articles.--ragesoss (talk) 14:12, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
I agree with the specific point. If the images were actively in use when the administrator deleted them, then this was against the guidelines. I do note that these appear to have been part of a general gallery on en.wp of images, rather than specific images to illustrate an article. For that reason the case is weak, however unless Denniss is prepared to add a clear explanation and rationale unambiguously supported by policy, I Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion, especially considering that the only DR I can see just had a keep opinion and the briefest of explanations for deletion which appears to take no account for the usage. -- (talk) 14:26, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
In fairness to the deleter, these are exactly the kind of images that are routinely deleted on a very regular basis, and which you would not expect to actually be in use. Additionally the Mobile Web uploader automatically inserts images into articles, so the fact they are in use doesn't have as much bearing on the decision. It certainly leaves a lot of imageless captions all over the wikipedias... –⁠moogsi (blah) 21:29, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
I thought the mobile thingy was only for articles needing lead images? In this case the images were part of a subsection gallery, so this would not seem to be the issue. -- (talk) 00:17, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
I only meant that seeing one in use may not make you think twice, as so many of them are put into use immediately as they are uploaded. I think you are right, it is only lead photos or those in infoboxes –⁠moogsi (blah) 00:47, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, it's an understandable mistake to have deleted them. For two of them, I did note in the deletion discussion that they were in use, but I appreciate that there has been a lot to clean up. I'm going to go ahead and restore these ones now, though.
For mobile web upload, the main call to action is on articles lacking images and is just for the lead, but there's also the option to upload an image without adding it to an article, if you're already logged in.--ragesoss (talk) 01:53, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Jesenice train station-from tracks.jpg and File:Železniška postaja na Jesenicah 1961.jpg [edit]

The first one per COM:DM (it cleary shows only a minor part of the station, whereas the main part of the picture shows tracks) and the secound one per discusion here. My comments in the original DR were not even taken into consideration. --Miha (talk) 22:59, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The only thing in the first image, other than railroad tracks is the train station, which occupies the central third of the image. The fact that the whole station is not shown is irrelevant. As for the second, I was not the closing Admin, but I agree with the decision. There is no evidence that there is FOP in Slovenia or that the Threshold of Originality for architecture is particularly high. In almost all countries, the TOO for architecture is very low. The section of the Slovenian law that deals with architecture is more comprehensive than any other that I have read. I do not understand how that combination of facts can be used to justify an assumption that the TOO for architecture in Slovenia is significantly higher than elsewhere since logic would conclude the opposite. In any event, however, without any evidence of a high TOO, COM:PRP requires us to delete because there is a significant possibility of these being derivative works of copyrighted works. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:22, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The situation with old photos of buildings is unclear, as far as I've understood. The old copyright law did have FOP (so 2D representations of 3D buildings were not protected) and it is unclear if that protection was restored or not. I'd say delete per COM:PRP unless we have clear evidence that old photos are OK. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:43, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Hot_air_balloon_sans_darth_vader.jpg[edit]

I think this one would be in the category FOP Mexico. I've asked the photographer, Tomas, and that's where the picture was taken. Same image for non-admins. Penyulap 21:38, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Did you mean to request the undeletion of this one (which has a big pink splodge and the word "censored" in place of Darth Vader) or the original? I can't see how the "censored" version would be within project scope, but if COM:FOP#Mexico is right (ie it doesn't contain the "permanently situated" wording found in most European countries), we might be able to keep the original. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:53, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
  • COM:FOP#Mexico doesn't seem to contain any requirement about permanent installation. Compare with COM:FOP#China, People's Republic of and COM:FOP#Korea (North) which don't mention permanent installation either. I'm not sure if this is an omission in the Chinese, Mexican and North Korean laws or if it is indeed fine to take photos of temporary exhibits. Sometimes you also have to read background documents to know what the lawmaker meant. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:10, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) I had been giving Balloons a good deal of thought generally, and Balloons are only useful, and come to think of it now, they are only able to be photographed, in public places. But I don't care to add any speculation to the mix. I want to just to tuck them back into the category of that balloon festival, there are plenty of similar pictures here. To the question of which, I didn't know there was more than one, I figure if one is good both are good, and if he doesn't want the censored version for anything then he can just ask for it's removal. I'll make sure it's in the alternate versions bit of the file description.
I know the idea of censorship is repulsive to some people, however censorship is a subject and apparently within scope too. Penyulap 22:12, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Sea otters holding hands.jpg[edit]

This image had been on Commons since November 2007[12] and is sourced to Flickr[13]. Less than 3 hours after upload it had been checked by our Flickr-review-bot and recorded to be licensed as cc-by-2.0[14]. In February of this year an IP changed/falsified the existing licensing entries in the image page from cc-by to CC-BY-NC-ND[15], which automatically resulted in the image being tagged for deletion. Indeed, currently the image appears to be under the restricted license on Flickr. This is clearly another case of license-change, for which Flickr has a bad name and which is considered to be invalid (CC-BY non-revokable). Regrettably neither the nominator of Commons:Deletion requests/File:Sea otters holding hands.jpg nor anybody else did check the edit-history.
Strangly, a cropped version (File:Sea otters holding hands, cropped.jpg) of the same image, which was created 1 day before deletion of the original, wasn't challenged despite the despicable unpleasant fact that cropper Penyulap poses as author[16] and calls this simple crop his "own work". --Túrelio (talk) 10:56, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

What "history of copyright violations"? I uploaded that photo some years ago taken by a friend, with his permission. It is a personal photograph taken by his camera, and at the time I was told that it adhered to the rules.

If the format needs to be different, please let me know. --Weinwalk (talk) 03:11, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

You really should have commented at the DR. I can't see the image right now, but if it was uploaded a long time ago and was here, I think there's no problem with undeleting now for another deletion review. Sinnamon Girl (talk) 03:27, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Redoing the DR will not help. What you really need to do is have your friend send a declaration of consent to COM:OTRS agreeing to publish the photo under a free license (e.g. CC-BY-SA 3.0).

File:Leonia Holistic Destination logo.png [edit]

Hi,

The logo we have uploaded is a creation of our company Leonia Holistic Destination. We do have the sole rights to display the logo where necessary and where required. We are authorized to use the logo for the purpose of company information being displayed anywhere on the web. The logo is our brand identity and to not have it on Wikipedia defeats the objective of Leonia Holistic Destination.

B Naren (talk) 12:02, 16 April 2013 (UTC) B Naren mrkt.executive@leonia.in Date: 16-April-2013

There are problems here
  1. You state that "We do have the sole rights" so it is copyrighted
  2. You state that "We are authorized to use the logo for the purpose of company information" - this is not the equivalent of freely licensing the image which is required here on Commons
  3. You state that "not have it on Wikipedia defeats the objective" - that does not of itself make the image (or other images you uploaded) within our scope.

As for, "In future please kindly notify your request of deletion before deleting it silently without our approval", the image was included in a DR and Emkei-pg was notified.

I do not, but I know licenses that can apply to such an image, and I doubt Szczepan1990 would object to any of them. He certainly wanted it here or else he wouldn't have uploaded it, and it has scope. Fry1989 eh? 20:08, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
That's a general website copyright, it doesn't apply to the flag. In fact, your link doesn't even mention the flag or show it anywhere. Fry1989 eh? 20:24, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Look again; it's in the banner at the top of the page. It's also in their constitution (page 141). Per COM:EVID, it's your duty to prove a free license, not mine to prove an unfree one. Эlcobbola talk 20:31, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Look again yourself, there is no banner on the website. There is the inuksuk, but it is not the banner. It is in fact only a general website copyright, I've already dealt with this issue with File:Seal of the Turkish Navy.svg. Just because a website says "copyright", that does not apply to the images set in, which contain original authorship and their own specific rights. The PDF also does not mention copyright anywhere on it, nor is our SVG the same image. True, I must prove it's not copyrighted, but that doesn't mean any old person can just slap on the label "oh I think that's copyrighted", and it be accepted at face value. Your claim too must have merit. Fry1989 eh? 20:37, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
The deleted image is the inuksuk. Copyright attaches upon creation. The relevance of the disclaimer is the suggestion that, unlike some governments, the Nunatsiavut Government does not place its works in the public domain. Where is your proof of a free license? Эlcobbola talk 20:43, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Exactly my point, copyright attaches at creation and is independent of the image appearing on a website with a generic website copyright, the exact same argument that I had to go through with the Turkish Navy seal, where a user claimed that because the navy's website and photos had a generic copyright notice, that automatically applied to the seal which actually was created about 60-70 years ago, long before the internet even existed. Thank you for self-defeating your own initial argument for opposition. Fry1989 eh? 00:32, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
Where is your proof of a free license. Эlcobbola talk 00:45, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
Honestly I think I should just let you keep talking, maybe you'll self-defeat all your points. You've completely failed at asserting this is copyrighted with any evidence of your own, and as I said the burden of proof for something being PD does not give one license to just yell out "that's copyrighted!" and be taken at face value as truth. Now answer me this: why would an organisation create a flag, an extremely public symbol, and seek it's copyright? Especially when the nature of flags is that you want people to produce, purchase, and fly them. It's counter-intuitive to the entire purpose. Fry1989 eh? 01:02, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
So you don't have proof of a free license? Эlcobbola talk 01:04, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
The user used to be an admin here I'm pretty sure... and their page still says they are an OTRS member but they don't seem active anymore. He or she properly licensed a ton of uploads... probably just an oversight, unless maybe it was copied directly from a government publication. Copyright of government flags... is a bit of a non-normal situation. It's pretty odd to try to enforce a copyright on the general design (and I don't think you really can) of a symbolic item like that, other than specific renditions. What, is the population not allowed to make versions of their own flag? Given that it is in their constitution, it would be PD-EdictGov in the U.S. I'm not sure if it counts as Crown Copyright in Canada -- they seem to have some autonomy but far from total, but I suppose they could copyright the very particular version in the constitution. I'm not sure that would necessarily prevent someone from coming up with their own drawing of it though. There are few times when staying literally true to the wording of copyright law leads to nonsensical situations, and governmental flags is probably one of them. If it looks to an original rendition (i.e. not copied straight from somewhere else) I'd probably allow it, provided we can come up with a way for the user to supply a license. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:39, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

 Not done without permission from the author of the file. For the question of the freeness of the design: the government may intend it to be used freely by anyone for anything, but only as far as they want, reserving copyright and related rights in order to enforce them where they see fit. Without asking them, we are only guessing at the intentions of the rightsholder, which we won't do unless there is a practical way to open and speculate on a million other individual cases where the rightsholder probably doesn't mind.

File:Tssbitfrüher.jpg [edit]

die Datei Tssbitfrüher.jpg soll wieder hergestellt werden

- habe die Freigabe am 15.04 nach Aufforderung nachgereicht und es hat auch zu keinen Problemen seitens Wikimedia geführt, habe zur Sicherheit heute nochmals von der offiziellen Schul-Email (sekretariat@tssbit.de) die Freigabeerklärung nochmals verschickt - was soll ich noch unternehmen??? - bin etwas ratlos. Das Bild ist ca. 100 Jahre alt und ist in Besitz der Schule und ich vertrete die Schule und habe stellvertretend die Rechte. Außerdem befindet sich das Bild auch auf der offiziellen Homepage der Schule. (http://www.tssbit.de/typo3temp/pics/1bd7455b21.jpg)

Jcherrmann (talk) 21:03, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Mit Freigabe meinst Du die Angabe der Lizenz, geschickt an OTRS? Das ist im Prinzip der richtige Weg, setzt aber voraus, dass die Schule Urheberrechtsinhaber ist. Das wiederum setzt voraus, dass ein Angestellter der Schule im Rahmen seiner Arbeit das Bild gemacht hat oder es ein Auftragswerk war und der Vertrag eine entsprechende Übertragung der Rechte vorgesehen hat. Normalerweise liegt nämlich das Urheberrecht beim Fotografen und nach seinem Tod i.d.R. 70 Jahre bei dessen Erben. Nur diese können dann das Bild freigeben. Da es noch weitere Variablen gibt, müssen zum Bild diese Angaben gemacht werden: Wer hat es gemacht? Wann (vor 100 Jahren passt nicht recht wenn die Schule 1921 gegründet wurde)? Wann wurde es zuerst veröffentlicht? --rimshottalk 08:15, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

File:MThM Na Sedmicke.jpg[edit]

I do hereby request the un-delete of the above photograph of my grandfather for the following reasons:

  1. I published the photo from a scan from mother's personal photo album, at her request.
  2. The ownership/copyright was verified by a Slovak editor at the time it was published.
  3. The original photo was taken most likely by my father at my grandfather's studio known as “Na Sedmičke.
  4. When I uploaded the photo I didn't know and still don't know how to change the author attribute of the photo.(Need Help!)
  5. As the heir of both my father and mother I am the current copyright owner of the work.
  6. An editor pointed out that the photo looks professional and doesn't look like a family snap-shot. I would hope not, as many of the photos and negatives I have of my grandfather were posed and were shot by my father Ph.Dr Bohumil Vančo.[[27]]
  7. Lastly, the photo was originally shot in 1941-42 (71-72 years ago), before I was born and the copyright has expired so why would anyone care if I chose to release a photo of my grandfater?
I would appreciate your feedback and the restoration of the photo to the Commons.

Mvanco (talk) 20:30, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

1. Since you assert that you are your mother's heir, I assume that she has died after she made this request. If she is still living, then she is the copyright owner.
4. Simply edit the description as you would any other item in WP or Commons, by clicking on the "edit" link ("Upravit'" if you work in Slovak rather than English) in the list at the upper right of your screen.
5. This, and point (3) are the important facts -- your father is the author and you are his sole heir.
7. Slovak law provides that the copyright last for 70 years after the death of the author, so this statement is incorrect -- the copyright will last until January 1, 2061 (as you doubtless know, but others do not, your father died in 1990).

The deletion was made because of lack of licence, but the original file was licenced under GFDL - Michelet-密是力 (talk) 05:50, 16 April 2013 (UTC)


 Not done : There must be proof that the artist agrees to the GFDL. Please send the evidence to COM:OTRS. King of ♠ 07:46, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

The standard proof for personal pictures is obtained by the GFDL tag appended upon publication, there is no need for an OTRS ticket. What makes you think the uploader is not the author ?
Apparently the file was uploaded (09:13, 8 March 2007) from .nl : "Originally from nl.wikipedia; description page is/was here. Original uploader was Bravoh at nl.wikipedia" But the .nl version has been deleted shortly after (8 mars 2007 à 19:14), since "Dit bestand staat nu op Wikimedia Commons. commons:Image:Bartartmaaike.jpg" (I suppose that means "'cause it has been uploaded on Commons").

Indeed, but to me the picture rather looks like a pĥotograph posterized with photoshop, not a professionnal painting - in that case this would be a self-made photograph. It is difficult to ascertain it is a painting with that poor resolution. The picture composition was just perfect to illustrate the wikt:fr:孕 character (kneeling pregnant women), which is why I'd rather have it back, the others in category:Nude pregnant women are much less convincing (which is also why I wouldn't restore it without discussing the case, of course).

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The original CSD tag stated: "While the the FBI released the image, it is likely not their own work, and would not qualify under PD-FBI. (en.wiki is hosting these shots for the time being)." If the FBI takes a still from surveillance/security camera footage that they themselves didn't actually create, I don't see how the still would be free. It would be a derivative of copyrighted footage. INeverCry 18:05, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
It depends. If it is actually surveillance footage from an automatic camera, then there is no copyright because there was no human creativity in taking the picture, see Threshold_of_originality#Pre-positioned_recording_devices. If, on the other hand, the image was taken by a spectator who actually pushed a button, then the spectator owns the copyright and the deletion is correct. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:12, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing that out. From what they say on the news, the FBI asked for cell-phone/camera pics and footage from private citizens in the course of their investigation. Do we know if this is in fact security footage, or is it possibly from a private cell or camera? INeverCry 18:20, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
The picture was taken from a FBI page such as this one or that one, but they don't specify whether it's security footage or not. It does look like surveillance footage, but it's hard to say for sure. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 07:41, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
My thinking on this is that it doesn't matter who owned the security camera. The reason of lack of creativity is interesting above. On top of that, the work is a derivative work of the FBI - who must have taken and published the image themselves under 'fair use'. The derivation required some 'creativity' because the image was cropped, bystanders faces were obfuscated, and the suspect faces were sharpened. The copyright law regarding derivative works is complex but in essence the image itself becomes the copyright of the FBI, except that the FBI as a US Government agency can not hold copyrights so the image becomes public domain. If you're unfamiliar to derivative work copyright law please review the wikipedia article (I don't know how to cross-link between wikis). At the very least this shouldn't have been a candidate for speedy deletion in my book - since there are two probably equally viable rationalizations for the images use. CoolMike (talk) 20:41, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
You're going to have to be more specific about what you mean by "derivative work copyright law", because I am familiar with it, and the problem is it makes certain works incredibly complex to use, as a movie can be derivative of a story, a screenplay, the music, the characters, the artwork shown, etc., and checking that the movie itself lost copyright doesn't give you the right to use it without securing appropriate rights to the underlying works it's derivative of. See, for example, w:It's_a_Wonderful_Life#Ancillary_rights and w:Stewart v. Abend.--Prosfilaes (talk) 00:55, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
If you want me to be more specific than the context of the image in question than I don't know what to say. It sounds like you know your stuff (Prosfilaes that is) - so I'd be happy to defer to your judgement on the use of the image itself. CoolMike (talk) 01:04, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure I follow you Coolmike. If the picture is surveillance footage (as opposed to someone's picture taken with a camera or a mobile), then there's no creativity involved and the pic is public domain. There's no need to invoke derivation. If the picture comes from a camera or a mobile, it's copyrighted and no amount of FBI intervention can make it PD, per Commons:Derivative works. Plus I don't really see any trace of FBI intervention. The bystanders' face isn't blurred for instance. Jastrow (Λέγετε) 18:33, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think there might be some conflation of creativity with originality here. The former has connotations of "freshness," or otherwise being a notch above what is typical. Creativity is not considered by USC 17. Originality, however, is – and is generally understood to be a non-trivial variation, something recognizably the author’s own, and little more than a prohibition on copying. (Thus the mistake of opining based on creativity, as originality is a lower threshold.) In that regard, I don’t believe TOO considerations to be relevant; this is an entirely new ("original") photo, not a variation or copy of a something that already existed. The salient question really seems to be whether a fixed camera would be considered an “author.” It might well not be, but, in the absence of case law to answer that question, COM:PRP compels deletion.

File:MicahJohnson.jpg [edit]

The photo that had been used on the Micah Johnson (journalist) Wiki page was deleted after several years of use. The photo was taken 13 years ago by photographer Tom Story, and purchased by the subject. It is in use in the subject's materials in many venues. Contacting the photographer, he reiterated and emailed authorization for unlimited use by the subject which was forwarded to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org today. Respectfully ask that the photo be reinstated while the email winds its way through permissions. Jackryan733 (talk) 06:33, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Unlimited use by the subject is not enough, permission is required that anyone can reuse the file anytime, anywhere for every purpose. See Commons:Project scope#Required licensing terms.
Also at the file description page - in the upload formular - you declared that the file is your own work created in 1980. Two times, at File:MicahJohnson.jpg and File:Micah Johnson.JPG, both times you clicked the "This file is my own work." instead of the "This file is not my own work." button. Bad idea to restore such an upload. --Martin H. (talk) 14:52, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
✓ Done Martin would ordinarily be entirely correct, but the OTRS permission is very clear. At first the photographer only authorized it for unlimited use, but subsequently provided CC-BY-SA and GNU licenses. The licenses came from a domain belong to a photographer who does this kind of work, so I think that it is authentic. As for claiming "own work", how many times a day do we see that from newbies?

Photos from Yugoslavia[edit]

I think that now as User:Léna‎ has determined that the photos listed here and here are free for Commons per the "rule of the shortest term" (not that I would understand why it would be relevant in this case), the following files have to be undeleted too, for the same reason:

--Eleassar (t/p) 17:18, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm having two problems here. Is the source country Yugoslavia (which has FOP) or Slovenia (which doesn't have FOP)? Some of the successor states have FOP and some don't, and how do you identify the source country of a work from Yugoslavia if the source country is a successor state? Also, it is unclear what a court would say. One could say that the old law didn't protect the 2D representation of buildings and that the new law didn't restore this protection, but I think that we are stepping into uncertain parts of COM:PCP here and that it would be better to await court rulings on the matter. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:50, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for note having been clear in the deletion requests : by "rule of the shortest term" I meant that once something gets out of copyright "protection" it is public domain once and for all and thus copyright can't be restored. (Yes I know it is not the case for the URAA but it is also what is hurtful and shocking with it). I also think that waiting for a court decision on this is getting COM:PCP much too far : actually, every Deletion Request is unclear until a court decision is made (this is particulary true to COM:FOP cases with threshold of originality / de minimis arguments. Maybe we could ask meta:Wikimedia Czech Republic (Wikimedia Slovenia doesn't exist yet :() what they think of this ? Léna (talk) 07:07, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
Although Léna's first sentence above is true as a general rule, there are certainly enough exceptions where various legislatures have extended copyright terms retroactively that we should not assume it.
However, I think that is not the issue here. A work that is subject to FOP is not PD even though FOP applied at one time, so that the rule of the shorter term does not apply. This is certainly true for a sculpture that is moved from an FOP country to one that does not have FOP for sculpture.
My educated guess is that a court would rule that if these images were taken while it was Yugoslavia, they were permitted under FOP and remain permitted under FOP even though the law has changed, just as an image taken of a permanently located sculpture in the UK is OK even though it is subsequently (and unexpectedly) moved to the USA. On the other hand, if the images were taken after it became Slovenia, then the fact there was once FOP in that place is irrelevant. The buildings were copyrighted under both Yugoslav and Slovenian law and the FOP exception ceased being available for images taken after the law changed. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:21, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
These images have all been taken between 1928 and 1947, whereas Yugoslavia disintegrated in 1991 and Slovenia adoped FOP in 1995. So anything taken before 1995 (or is it 1991?) in Slovenia is FOP free?--Sporti (talk) 14:58, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
Jim, I think that your reasoning is based on a false premise. I have to say so due to the case in 2005 or somewhere in that time, when a sculptor from Slovenia sued the publisher in Slovenia (no commercial FOP) for having used an image of his sculpture exhibited in Croatia (has commercial FOP) and won.[28] Judged by this I would say that the court would probably only consider the law currently valid in Slovenia. This, in my opinion, raises a significant doubt that the kept images and the ones proposed for undeletion are free indeed. Otherwise, thanks for having pointed out that the rule of a shorter term does not apply. It has seemed so to me from the very beginning. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:15, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. I agree that the court case you cite is troubling, not only for this case, but for our whole view of the application of FOP. If applied in the USA, Alexander Calder's heirs could require that we take down all of the images we have of his works that are in FOP countries.
However, I'm not sure (50/50) that I agree with you about its applicability here. Suppose that in 1985 a Yugoslav publisher commissioned photographs of a wide variety of modern sculpture in what is now Slovenia and published them in a glossy book. Can the sculptors now collect damages from the publisher? Can they require that the books be found and burned? It seems unlikely to me, although I freely admit that some of the court decisions we see are difficult to understand. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:43, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
The court could most probably not demand that old commercial products are destroyed, as that would mean the law is applied retroactively, but could still forbid the sale of new commercial products that would include (old or new) photos depicting still copyrighted works. The creation of such commercial products would happen after the FOP situation changed, therefore they would be illegal even if the photos were public domain. This is an important distinction, as there are many circumstances where public domain works can't be used freely. --Eleassar (t/p) 20:59, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
You may compare this to the 93/98/EEC Directive of the European Union: "shall be without prejudice to any acts of exploitation performed before the... ", but still makes any work that was copyrighted in at least one EU member on January 1, 1995 copyrighted in all EU members, even if that work's copyright had already expired there. Or to the URAA provisions.[29]: "The URAA, to take the other example discussed above, only makes continued or new unlicensed uses of works whose copyright has been restored a copyright violation. Unlicensed earlier publications of the work (while it was still in the public domain in the U.S.) are not punished "after the fact", i.e. ex post facto." --Eleassar (t/p) 06:24, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Hm. mindat.org does seem to be very careful about the attribution and copyright status of all the images on the site. They have a number of images from that CD-ROM source and all of them state "released to the public domain". The original Mines '98 used to have a website (archived here) where the maps do appear. No mention of copyright status there but they may well have been produced as part of that effort (edited by the European Commission) -- they sure look consistent on that site.

* File:Тополі_ще_тримають_оборону.jpg
* File:Допоки_вистачить_наснаги.jpg
* File:Я_край_дороги_не_умію_жити.jpg

These images are covers of books, which (covers and books) I've prepared and published by myself, these are books of my mother's verses, see here: uk:Редчук_Галина_Василівна.

All these covers are prepared from my own photos (I can provide Canon CR2 raw files from the same series and/or untouched samples of these images), using The GIMP and Inkscape (I can provide SVG sources, too).

Here is the link on my blog: http://brownian.org.ua/?p=1579 — here you can find these covers, as well as my email (which is the same as my account's contact email).

Having been warned about "unclear" copyright information supplied with the first of these images, I wrote to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org (from the same email). After the first image was deleted I wrote once again. No reply.

Later all other images was deleted.

Please, these images are my photos, decorated with overlays and titles. These are my works. I want to publish them under CC-BY-SA.

Thank you.

Hi, thanks for your comments - they are helpful. My only concern would be whether you are the owner of the copyright in the photographs which appear on the book covers. Did you take the photographs yourself, or were they sourced from elsewhere? If the latter, we would need to be sure that the photographs have been released under an appropriate free licence. Regards, --MichaelMaggs (talk) 08:56, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I *did* take those photos by myself, using my Canon EOS 40D with either 17-55 F2.8 IS USM or 70-200 F4 IS USM L lens. I can prove that, please let me know how to do this best. Thank you (DmytroRedchuk (talk) 09:37, 22 April 2013 (UTC))

However, as you have I think already found, there is a bit of a backlog in dealing with requests made to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. If it would help speed up the undeletion you could email the original images to me (including the EXIF data). You'd also need to state explicitly that you agree to release the attached images under a suitable free licence such as Cc-by-3.0 (allows re-use for all purposes, including commercial). On receipt, I will undelete and pass the information onto the OTRS team for you. While we wait for them to action the requerst I can tag the files to prevent them being deleted again.

Thank you for your reply. All images are at home, so I'll be able to do this tomorrow. Just to clarify — am I really should release original images to release works which use those images? Or, if I really should do that, will another images "from the same series" fit to prove that these are really mine? (DmytroRedchuk (talk) 11:02, 22 April 2013 (UTC))
OK, I'll await to hear from you tomorrow. You would just need to confirm that you release the final images that you uploaded to Commons, not necessarily the original photographs that you took for the book covers. However, you would need to send those original photos to me, including the EXIF data, so that we can demonstrate to the OTRS team that the final images you are releasing are made up wholly of your own work. I'm afraid that other photos in the same series would not be sufficient to establish the evidence we need. The original photos you send as evidence would be kept confidential and would not go onto the public site. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 11:12, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

The problem is that the previous publication predates your upload here and that you not gave notice of previous publication. Also the upload here is in the same very small thumbnail size like the publication elsewhere. To resolve this you can upload the photo in its original size. --Martin H. (talk) 15:00, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

 Not done . If you publish exactly the same file somwewhere else before uploading it here, then we can't tell if it's uploaded by you or someone stealing your photo. Upload a higher resolution or original version, or contact COM:OTRS to verify your identity and your permission to use the image –⁠moogsi (blah) 04:15, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_in_Category:Al_Jazeera_files_with_bad_file_names[edit]

Deletion was requested because these files were poorly named, and because there was a suspicion that Al Jazeera copied them from someone's Face Book account without permission. The owner of the account was contacted by Fae and wrote:
“I was employed with Al Jazeera English at the time but I thought the least they would do was give me photo credit. You can feel free to use my photos granted that you give me credit.”
Whether the copyright is held by Al Jazeera or by the photographer, permission has been given. The names can be changed to more descriptive ones; these files have been categorized, so even if they are not renamed, they are not "useless".

In March, undeletion was requested and granted (by the same administrator who originally deleted them) under a similar rationale to what I just gave, but the files were later deleted again, with the original deletion discussion cited as the reason. Rybec (talk) 06:19, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

They show up as being moved and only the redirect deleted. Sinnamon Girl (talk) 07:02, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
"You can feel free" is not a permission for reuse by anyone. Its unfree. There is no reason to keep the files. --Martin H. (talk) 14:43, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Sorry, I hadn't noticed that only one of these had been deleted the second time around. I've struck out the erroneous files from my request.

The full sentence says "you can feel free to use my photos granted that you give me credit" which is clearly giving permission for use, conditional on attribution. Rybec (talk) 22:25, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

But it doesn't give clear authorization about modification, who can use it. There is a lot of things missing that we will have to have in order for the images to be restored. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 07:40, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Permission is not given for anyone to reuse the file. "You" is a non-allowable license term Commons:PS#Non-allowable licence terms. --Martin H. (talk) 08:04, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is unclear whether the copyright holder is Al Jazeera or the photographer. If the copyright holder is the photographer, then the permission only applies to "you" (possibly meaning (talk · contribs) and no one else), and it isn't clear what "use" means. Does it only apply to verbatim copies of the images? --Stefan4 (talk) 13:25, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
    • Also, all of the files and not just the redirects should have been deleted. --Stefan4 (talk) 08:34, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agree with Fae. As the photographer was employed by Al Jazeera at the time, it is most likely that Al Jazeera, rather than the photographer, is the copyright owner. Whatever the photographer tells us, it is unlikely that he is legally able to release these images. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 07:48, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
    • In some countries, the copyright holder to a work for hire is the employee, and in other countries, it is the employer. We have no information about how it works with these images or which law we should use to determine the copyright holder. A free licence was provided by Al Jazeera, but we don't know whether Al Jazeera is the copyright holder or not. --Stefan4 (talk) 08:34, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I now understand the ambiguity in the permission given by the photographer. I've asked Fae about contacting him again. [30] Rybec (talk) 23:20, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

 Not done No consensus to restore. If permission for the file(s) is obtained, it should be forwarded to COM:OTRS. -FASTILY 08:16, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Template:PD-USGov-DHS-CGAUX[edit]

Template {{PD-USGov-DHS-CGAUX}} was deleted without dealing with files that use it for last 6 years. The reason for deletion (see Commons:Deletion requests/Template:PD-USGov-DHS-CGAUX is that "The Coast Guard Auxiliary is a volunteer organization, its members are not employees of the government in any sense of the word". However according to en:United States Coast Guard Auxiliary "When under orders, the member is recognized as a Federal employee and any approved vessels are recognized as property of the U.S. government", same statements (possibly copied from Wikipedia) can be found on few dozens CGAUX websites [31]. So it sounds to me than when on duty members of CGAUX are considered US Federal employees. I will be also OK with relicensing all the files using {{PD-USGov-DHS-CGAUX}} to {{PD-USGov-DHS-CG}}. --Jarekt (talk) 12:50, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Interesting. By definition, volunteers aren't employees under Federal law, so I'm not sure that the USCGA assertions would stand up in court. It would be interesting to know what happens when an Auxiliary member gets injured while on duty -- does the Coast Guard pay for treatment or does it go to the volunteer's own health insurance?
The issue is more complicated, though. We certainly understand that even images made by full time employees of the Federal government are not PD unless done as part of their duties. Thus an image of a plane taking off from an aircraft carrier by a crew member who is not an official photographer has a copyright belonging to the crew member. Since, as far as I know, the CG Auxiliary does not have volunteers whose duties for the Auxiliary are as photographers, it's not at all clear that there are any images taken by Auxiliary members that are not personal images belonging to the Auxiliary member.
If there are actually any files that we can show were actually taken by CG Auxiliary members as part of their official duties, then I'd be happy to see them put in {{PD-USGov-DHS-CG}}.
While we're on the subject, I think the template should actually be PD-USGov-Coast Guard, omitting "DHS". While the Coast Guard is now in the DHS, in the past it has been in Treasury, Transportation, and DoD (Navy). Who knows when the next reorganization will change its home again? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:51, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Most of the files using the template (see below) are some sort of derivatives of File:AUX W.png which has "This image is a work of a United States Coast Guard service personnel or employee, taken or made during the course of a serviceman or employee's official duties. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image is in the public domain (17 U.S.C. § 101 and § 105)." statement in the EXIF data. Other files like File:AUX S W.png has the same statements. Most Cost guard insignia seems to be created and uploaded by user:Eric.J.Hebert (see Special:ListFiles/Eric.J.Hebert) who often also used {{PD-ineligible}} for his uploads. His user page claims that he is owner of Graphic Arts company "Bast Productions" and affiliated with "Graphics Branch; USCGAUX Photo Corps; National Department of Public Affairs". I think we should add {{PD-USGov-DHS-CG}} and {{PD-user}} to his files using {{PD-USGov-DHS-CGAUX}}. --Jarekt (talk) 17:12, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
✓ Done I changed the licenses of the "official" insignia to {{PD-USGov-DHS-CG}}, and tagged the rest as "no license" --Jarekt (talk) 18:03, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
That's fine with me, thank you for your effort. Any thoughts about removing "DHS" as I suggested above? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:25, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
O yes that would be fine with me. I always prefer spell-out names because I never remember the abbreviations, and keeping DHS does not help people find it mere easily. Shell we just move it with redirect, and leave files using it so far as is? --Jarekt (talk) 12:29, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
I'll use Cat-a-Lot and AWB to move the files and cats, but probably not today. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:16, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Whirlwind-Poster.jpg [edit]

Hello,

I would like to request that the above file be undeleted. I am the owner of the file in question (Whirlwind-Poster.jpg) & have made it available for public use. You can find the poster on the Official Facebook page for Whirlwind @ https://www.facebook.com/Whirlwind2013.

Many thanks for your time.

The file is a derivative work of the poster shown. Owning the poster does not give you the right to copy it or license it here. That right belongs to the creator of the poster. If you are the photographer who actually took the original photograph of the two women and also the person who created the poster, then please send permission using the procedure at Commons:OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:11, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

 Not done per Jim. If you completely own the rights, please give permission via COM:OTRS. Please note that "available for public use" and "free" aren't the same thing. If you need to use the poster to illustrate an article, consider uploading it as "fair use" on wikipedia –⁠moogsi (blah) 04:22, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Macat-ang Beach.jpg [edit]

The file File:Macat-ang Beach.jpg was wrongfully deleted by another Wikipedia editor. I took the photo in 2009 in Banton, Romblon, using my Sony digital camera. I posted the photo in my blog, Banton: The Island Blog (http://bantonisland.blogspot.com), which is why another Wikipedia editor thought the photo belonged to another user instead of mine. Please undelete. Thank you!- — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lawrence ruiz (talk • contribs)

The file was deleted as we don't have any evidence at the moment that you (the uploader) are the same person as you (the blogger). The easiest way to demonstrate that would be for you to change the copyright text at the bottom of this page to indicate that the second image (or all of them if you prefer) has been released under a free licence (cc-by-sa-3.0). Please come back here when that is done and I will happily undelete the image for you. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 08:23, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
