Files by User:Kiario12[edit]

Hello, it seems to me that while deleting so many files, someone missed this. The license is correct. I myself took the pictres above. So, photographer is known, Kiario12 (me) and that is the main reason that I ask for the undeletion.

Ok, I undeleted them. Thank's for letting us know. You do agree with the rest of the deletions? --Dschwen (talk) 02:33, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
File:Giannis Voglis actor in Ierapetra 2010.png is out of scope. It's blurry, it's low res, it's hard to tell what is happening, and it has no real educational value as far as I can see. File:Stavros Arnaoutakis.jpg is borederline passable, and could be kept if we have no other images depicting this presumably notable individual -FASTILY 02:52, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
Um... I do believe they were in use on a wiki, meaning they are (and will remain) automatically in scope. They were in use in their respective articles on el-wiki (en-wiki has articles on both as well, though the images were not used there.) Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:10, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

File:ICPD Launch 11th March 1999.jpg[edit]

Still waiting undeletion... Another commissioned picture - content provided as-is by the National Library of Ireland and Irish Newspapers Rights images move to common right after 3 years - this was 19 years ago, thus legally used with permission - original rights (not claimed here have been requested of photographer), so can get original photograph as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AspieNo1 (talk • contribs) 09:36, 30 August 2013‎ (UTC)

Is there a particular reason why you think today's response is going to be any different from yesterday? If you've followed the procedure at Commons:OTRS, a volunteer will process your e-mail when its turn comes. If (and only if) they are satisfied that all necessary information has been provided, the files will be undeleted. The current processing time, as listed at Commons:OTRS, is about sixteen days. It has not yet been sixteen days since yesterday, so you need to have some patience. While you're "still waiting", you might wish to learn how to sign your entries. LX (talk, contribs) 11:09, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
Note also that the volunteers at OTRS sometimes have a backlog that runs into weeks. Rather than waste our time with snarky comments, you might think about helping the project. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:50, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

File:OtokarCobraBorderDuty.JPG [edit]

File was deleted as a copyvio under the rationale that the OTRS permission ticket #2012071110005537. This ticket gave us the {{Attribution-TRGov-Military}} tag which reands: "Turkish Armed Forces allows anyone to use it for any purpose, provided that the copyright holder is properly attributed. The Turkish Armed Forces stated that all the images from their website are free for use provided the source is cited." or in more simplistic terms all images from http://www.tsk.tr which of course includes sub domains such as http://www.kkk.tsk.tr. Permission from "General Staff of the Republic of Turkey" the superior authority and the owner of the domain would be the rightful copyright holder here not the individual branches. I also find it distressing that there had been no OTRS input in the deletion discussion. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 08:17, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Wolf spider on white.jpg[edit]

I can't figure out why this file was deleted. Can't find it in the delete log. Nothing on my talk page. As I said when I posted it, I took the picture myself and uploaded it here for the world. What's with the hassle? Yyyikes (talk) 19:41, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

It looks like someone saw the same image on Flickr with "all rights reserved", and deleted it assuming that someone had just copied it from there to Wikimedia and claimed a false license (which happens a *lot*; see Commons:License laundering). Another admin determined that you were, in fact, the same person as the Flickr account holder, so it was restored. (The license here would in reality apply even if someone took the image off of Flickr -- it's the same license -- but there is nothing wrong with just mentioning the free license here). So... it is not deleted now, and everything seems OK. (It was in the delete log with reasons named though; see here). Carl Lindberg (talk) 20:03, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Patrice mayet.jpg [edit]

The footballer on the picture is now 79 years old , the photographer is unknown and might be dead ,the picture has probably over 60 years.--MoroccanMuslim (talk) 22:01, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Do you have a credible source explicitly naming this picture as freely licensed and/or providing details on publication date, location published, and authorship? -FASTILY 02:55, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

That's the only source I have http://www.casa-lesroches.com/les%20talents%20sportifs%20aux%20RN.htm#MAYET

The location is in the area which is the subject of the article ,the picture was taken in 1951/1952 and it's mentionned on the picture in the only available source http://www.casa-lesroches.com/les%20talents%20sportifs%20aux%20RN.htm#MAYET the picture that i want to publish is part of the first picture in the chapter talking about the old football player concerned--MoroccanMuslim (talk) 04:03, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As a rule, if we don't have any information about authorship or publication, an image must be from earlier than 1890 for most countries. 1950 is far too young, even in a country that has a term of 70 years from date of publication for images made by anonymous people. And, of course, for that to apply, we need to prove that the image was made anonymously -- simply being unknown is not the same thing. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:46, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
    • They look to be Moroccan team photos published in 1951 or 1952 or so. Current Moroccan law is 70pma (in other words 70 years after the author dies, not from when it was made). Audiovisual works are 70 years from publication, a bit shorter but still a long time, and photographs do not get that shorter term. Although... I think both terms were non-retroactively extended in 2006. The main law dates from 2000, and the terms were 50pma then. [50 years from publication for audiovisual works.] That law was definitely non-retroactive... hrm. The previous law was from 1970, also 50pma, but it appears that photographs were 50 years from creation -- not sure, but based on the Google translation of the Arabic version (plus some of our Morocco copyright tags) that seems to be the case. I think though that that law was also non-retroactive, looking at Article 62. I have no idea what the previous terms were, but if they were even 20 years from creation, then I think these photos are still under copyright in Morocco (and the U.S.). They would have still been under copyright in 1970 so they would have been extended to 50 years by that law, and extended again to 50pma in 2000, and again to 70pma in 2006. If the pre-1970 terms were 10 years from creation for photographs, the situation might be different though. Those would be pretty short terms, and are very uncommon, but not impossible (a couple countries had such photo terms in that era). The 1970 law lists some earlier laws which were repealed, which might give a clue, if someone really wanted to track things down to make sure: Law of 23 June, 1916 (Dahir of August? 21, 1334); Law of 9 November, 1926 (Dahir of May? 4, 1345); Law of 16 February 1927 (Dahir of August? 14, 1345); and Law of 24 December 1943 (Dahir of 26 Dhu al-Hijjah 1362). But at the moment it would seem that the best guess is that these photographs are still under copyright in Morocco, and therefore also in the U.S. Moroccan photographs from before 1946 might be more interesting though, as those would have expired in Morocco before 1996, meaning the U.S. copyright would not have been restored, and it would seem as though they would also be PD in Morocco. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:39, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

So will you accept to undelete it ? :D --MoroccanMuslim (talk) 01:10, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

No -- as Carl and I have both said, it is almost certainly still under copyright. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:45, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Files deleted through Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Kiario12[edit]

European Union and other countries have a copyright term of 70 years after a work was made available to the public and the author never disclosed their identity (it's 50 years in the Berne Convention [1])

The above mentioned photos are from the archives of local newspapers. The photographers themselves remain 'unknown/anonymous' and the photos were made available to the public from these newspapers. Thus, the copyright belonged to the newspapers.

Since the copyright owners are the newspapers, they are able to grant licenses.

They did grant a free license after a request from wikimedian Kiario12 (and el.wikipedia admin as Lemur12). This is mentioned in ticket:2013082310012299 and ticket:2013082310012628.

File:Joseph F. Smith family.png[edit]

File:Joseph F. Smith family.png

according to this user User_talk:INeverCry#Upload_question,

this file Commons:Deletion requests/File:Joseph F. Smith family.png,

is an exact copy of this pic: http://en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/874570

(said user has indicated a preference for undeleting, rather than re-uploading the file)

IF this admin-user (who is able to check deleted files, which i am not) is correct, then the file in question is a circa 1900 photograph, TAKEN IN THE USA. the context makes this point abundantly obvious to anyone who has any basic knowledge of the history of mormonism.

that being the case, the file was incorrectly deleted by user:fastily, when it should properly have been re-licensed as pd-1923 sa. the only commentor on the deletion request was the nominator. user:fastily closed & deleted without comment.

(i reserve comment on user:fastily's deletion activities, except to note that this is far from the first time when one of their decisions has required undoing)

pls confirm that the deleted pic is identical to the linked one, & undelete?

This file is labeled as "circa 1900" at http://en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/874570 (identical image to the deleted version here). The deleted file gives the following as the source: "Utah Quarterly Journal 73(3): 212, taken from Widtsoe Collection, Utah State Historical Society" (dead link). The uploader also stated the date as "c 1900." INeverCry 04:55, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
yes, and...? -- with all due respect, i'm not clear what your point is? if the file is from around 1900, & it's a us photo, then it is OBVIOUSLY PD. (i'll also note that i agree with the approximate dating, given the clothing, furniture, etc.) Lx 121 (talk) 05:13, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Lx 121 (talk) 05:19, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Leaning towards Symbol support vote.svg Support, as PD-1923 seems likely. The deletion reasons were not really accurate -- the simple fact that a photo is in a copyrighted journal does not mean it is copyrighted itself; that depends on the history of the photo itself. US photos were not based on the year of death of the photographer, but rather the publication date. They are most certainly never based on the death of the person who accumulates a photo archive, unless that person was also the photographer. The usage of PD-Art may not have been correct but nothing about that is a deletion reason (and PD-Art does *not* require the death date of the author, particularly for US works based on publication date). The Utah Historical Society seems to claim a copyright on the "digital reproduction" but that should not generate a new copyright. The record page indicates they own a paper print, not the original negative, which would seem to indicate they merely own a copy which was distributed (probably to other members of the Mormon church, one of whom's heirs eventually donated the copy to the historical society). If someone outside the family had a copy, as it would seem, that points to publication quite some time ago. The main chance of being still under copyright was if it was not published at all until recently, and if the Widstoe person was the actual photographer. There are tons of copies all over the net so it may be hard to trace its origin. There is a copy in this book, which dates the photo in 1904, and gives a different source (which is an indication that copies were distributed to at least church members at the time). Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:50, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

  • I also lean toward Symbol support vote.svg Support but the question is nowhere near as clear as LX121's tone suggests. PD-1923 requires not simply creation before 1923, but actual publication. If the image was not actually published until recently, then it will still be under copyright until 120 years after creation. However, the fact that there are apparently multiple non-family old copies strongly suggests publication pre 1923. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:01, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

File:1950 Republic India 03.jpg[edit]

This is a 1950 stamps and according to The Indian Copyright Act, 1957 (Chapter V Section 25), Anonymous works, photographs, cinematographic works, sound recordings, government works, and works of corporate authorship or of international organizations enter the public domain 60 years after the date on which they were first published, counted from the beginning of the following calendar year (ie. as of 2013, works published prior to 1 January 1953 are considered public domain). The person who nominated this stamp for deletion, and the mod who deleted it should have at least read its license and understood it before deletion.--PremKudvaTalk 11:03, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

{{PD-India}}


Right, but if it was still under copyright in India in 1996 (the URAA date mentioned in the deletion request), its U.S. copyright got restored for a term of 95 years from publication. Commons policy is "public domain in the country of origin and the U.S.". The above tag is just the first half of that; the DR was about the second half. So, the question is what would make it PD in the US. If this was a privately-owned copyright, it should remained deleted. For UK government works, they have said that the crown copyright expiration is considered effective worldwide, a sort of form of PD-author, but I'm not sure that other governments have said the same. But if this was a government-owned copyright, there might be some argument that it be treated similarly. But, I'm not sure how much support that idea has outside of Crown Copyright type works (although the "government works" portion of India's law is directly inherited from the UK's Crown Copyright).

File:BLACKHOLE SUN.jpg [edit]

see also: Commons:Deletion requests/File:BLACKHOLE SUN.jpg

I have nothing of substance to add to my original point: I know almost nothing about the technical aspects of digital photography, but a little common sense told me that this image is worth keeping, and I tersely explained why — hoping it should be enough to at least delay the outcome of the DR till someone knowledgeable about the matter could weight in. I’m however shocked that files can be deleted on a whim when there is no time or patience/willingness to explore the matter further.

Let me re-stress: This is not about a technical imperfection on the part of the photographer, but rather an unavoidable artifact caused by the nature of the recording device. As such, it should be documentable in Commons with a broad range of examples, and yet, what appeared to be the single recognized example so far, was thoughtlessly deleted under pretenses of «hurr, hurr, here’s another blurry shot», completed with patronizing tut-tuting.

Some links that might give context on this phenomenon to those more knowledgeable and/or patient than those involved in the matter so far:

-- Tuválkin 00:51, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Meanwhile, while scouring the Commons for other documented cases of this, I come across with File:Black hole sun.jpg, which is either a duplicate of the deleted file or a very similar shot (I don’t remember the details of the deleted photo). -- Tuválkin 01:05, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
These are 2 frames taken at the same time/place. The deleted one has the artifact more centered. I haven't got the time to look into this right now, but if this is a widely experienced phenomenon common to digital cameras, I would support it being restored. INeverCry 03:44, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Zero Mostel - movie still-2.jpg[edit]

Rationale given for deletion is contrary to copyright law, along with the fact that I was not notified about the tagging of the image for deletion in order to reply.

According to copyright definitions, publication takes place upon "the offering to distribute copies or phonorecords to a group of persons for purposes of further distribution, public performance, or public display." Therefore, the existence of a movie publicity photo constitutes publication. It is irrelevant to require that the "date and manner or original publication," which is what the tagging editor required, be found. For mass produced publicity photos, this is not even possible. --Light show (talk) 02:52, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As pointed out in the DR, this still was made showing the preliminary title Kitty and the Marriage Broker. The movie was subsequently released as The Model and the Marriage Broker. It is therefore likely that the photograph as seen here was never actually published because you don't sent out publicity stills with the wrong movie name. .     Jim . . . .

Unsupported malformed DR; admin deletion without explanation; another pending DR for the same file ignored. -- Tuválkin 20:04, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This was a perfectly satisfactory DR -- the reason given, "no description", is accurate and to the point. It was open for the required seven days and received no comment -- probably because it was an obvious case. Two people -- the nom and the closing Admin -- agreed that the file should be deleted. The closing Admin is not required to give a reason -- and if he or she agrees with the nom and there is no opposition, adding "no description" or "per nom" in the closing comment is a pointless waste of Admin time. .     Jim . . . .

File:Empauqe De Las Papas Pringles.JPG [edit]

File:Empauqe De Las Papas Pringles.JPG Hola La siguiente es para apelar la eliminación de mi Archivo Empauqe De Las Papas Pringles.JPG ya que en la descripción de porque lo van a borrar dice:

We're sorry, but File:Empauqe De Las Papas Pringles.JPG has been marked as a copyright violation. Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Reproductions of copyrighted works are also subject to the same copyright, and therefore this file must unfortunately be considered non-free.

que en español seria:

Lo sentimos, pero el archivo: Empauqe De Las Papas Pringles.JPG se ha marcado como una violación de derechos de autor. Wikimedia Commons sólo acepta contenido libre, es decir, imágenes y otros archivos multimedia que pueden ser utilizados por cualquier persona, para cualquier propósito. Reproducciones de obras protegidas también están sujetos a la misma los derechos de autor, y por lo tanto este archivo lamentablemente debe ser considerado no libre.

Mi pregunta es la siguiente:¿porque dice que el trabajo es una violación de derechos de autor sabiendo de que yo soy el autor de dicho trabajo? inclusive aun guardo la foto tanto en mi ordenador como en la cámara en la que tome la anteriormente mencionada. Si el problema se presenta porque depronto la foto aparece con un fondo azul pues yo fui quien agrego el fondo azul. Iclusive aún tengo la foto original.

File:August 24,2013 - Manila 2013-08-24 19-20.jpg[edit]

I reiterate the previous reason to keep: That this photo had become one of the best examples of Category:Frowning — apparently not staged, no copyright or privacy problems, not bad photo quality. The «circumstances surrounding this file have changed in a notable manner» if this UR is decided by someone who is not dead set in reducing the “clutter” in Commons by accepting just any DR (as opposed to, say, improving categorization and scoring the millions of forgotten files for worthy DR candidates). -- Tuválkin 06:15, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Low quality unused phone selfie (bad lighting, mediocre-res, blurry/grainy). The frowning bit is quite a stretch. INeverCry 07:11, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose We do not keep images of unidentified people in unidentified places -- aside from the fact that there may be privacy problems with an unknown person and place, Commons is not Facebook, and we have a strict rule against keeping personal images except for one or two for the uploader's own User Page. Any image will fit in multiple categories -- cat4egorization does not make a personal image a Keep. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:20, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
You can argue in favour of a DR by using the selfie card, and you can use the privacy concerns argument. But you cannot use both. Anything goes for lazy deletionism, I guess. (So disappointed!) -- Tuválkin 10:37, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Woody Allen - Diane Keaton - Manhattan.jpg[edit]

Sorry, this is another DR that slipped by without me seeing it in time to reply there. The rationale for deletion is meaningless. Especially the comment about the "outlandish" part, since the photo was used to promote a recent TV broadcast. The image has even been used on promotional materials for the original film. The original upload included the front and back, with no copyright, of a publicity photo. --Light show (talk) 03:36, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Light show's argument is outlandish, if not outright nonsense. They uploaded a photo which was published in 2012 to promote a 2012 TV broadcast. It carried no copyright notice at that time, and none was required bu the law at that time. They then asserted, without a shred of evidence, that the 2012 publication somehow proved that the photo had been published in 1979, and, equally without evidence, that the 1979 publication had carried no copyright notice. This is called, informally, making stuff up and it falls well short of what is required for establishing the public domain status of an image. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (talk) 11:18, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
I'm ok with closing this request. A quick image search for "Woody Allen Diane Keaton Manhattan", shows half a dozen sites using this photo. But since this wasn't an "original" still from 1979, just a copy, I'll pass on trying to restore it. --Light show (talk) 01:43, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Rocio Durcal En concierto... INOLVIDABLE Logo.png [edit]

El motivo de la solicitud es porque la imagen File:Rocio Durcal En concierto...

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It doesn't matter. If it an actual album cover, then it is a copyvio -- since it appears in many places on the web, that seems to be the case. However, if it is, as you say, your own work, created entirely by yourself without copying anything, including the creation of the photograph, then there is no copyvio, but it is out of scope -- we do not keep personally created art on Commons unless the artist is notable.

File:Nils-Aslak Valkeapää Beaivi, Áhcázan The Sun, My Father.png[edit]

The file was, if my memory serves, "licensed" as {{PD-ineligible}}. I nominated it for deletion as I did not find the design simple. After some research (sadly only afterwords), I realized it was closely based on the tradition, which means the design might lack originality. See the image in the deletion request with a similar design on it.

The closing administrator, Fastily, seems to have given no thought to the threshold of originality, but deleted the image as "fair use apparently", which seems taken from thin air.

It seems I should not take any file to a DR before I have made up my own mind, as the image risks being deleted on random irrelevant grounds.

And this is your own work, you claim? And despite the subject being dead since 1963, you somehow created the photograph of him three days ago? And you're claiming that the photo that you supposedly created three days ago is covered by {{PD-Russia}}? Are you claiming that you died in 1943?

Undoubtedly, the purported CC license is meant to refer only to the former. Secondly, this smells like Flickrwashing. Bizarre that LG and Samsung, both well-established conglomerates and active for decades (including in Philippines) have so conveniently joined Flickr just before the upload of these images (Samsung account started August 2013; LG account stated September 2013), both with minimal or no (in the case of LG) information.

File:Taylor and Kirk Douglas - 1976.jpg[edit]

Another DR I was not aware of. The image was an AP news photo, including all pertinent information on the front. It stated the dates, studio name, name of news agency who apparently took the photo, the names of the people in it, the name of the movie, etc. A ton of proof of no copyright notice. However, the tagging editor states, "No evidence this was published without a copyright notice." --Light show (talk) 03:51, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I must be missing something here. Light show tells us that this is an AP news photo. AP routinely took care that all of its work had a copyright. After all, if its images and stories were PD, why would newspapers pay for them? In order to show that this is PD-no notice, Light show will have to show that it was distributed by AP without a notice. A subsequent unauthorized distribution by a third party does not make the image PD. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:40, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Quite the opposite. First off, I'm not "telling" you anything that isn't on the original upload. Second, UPI has rarely copyrighted any of their images. Both We Hope and Moonriddengirl have confirmed this with cited sources, which they may still have. Nor are we talking about third party "distribution," but simply someone "selling" an original press release photo. They don't need "authorization." --Light show (talk) 21:48, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
UPI is not the same organization as AP. I can't see the image, but I'd be careful about wire photo copies -- I think those would be printed out at the other end, and I'm not sure those copies would have copyright notices (and those copies may not have been distributed). Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:07, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
As Carl suggests, news service images that were distributed by wire had special handling -- they would not have the usual (C) on the back, but the newspapers' contracts with AP required the newspapers to pay attention to copyright. If someone lifted one of those photos from a file and sold it without a copyright notice, it would not make the image PD. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:02, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Even though AP and UPI photos appear to be without notice, the Library of Congress legal department cautions about their free use:

"In an attempt to determine if UPI registered any copyrights and if those copyrights were renewed, Specialists in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress searched the Copyright Office files. It was found that only a few images were registered for copyright and those copyrights were not renewed. However, the Library’s legal office has advised the Division that photographs published with proper copyright notices between 1923-1963 may be protected if properly renewed, while works published after 1963 and unpublished photographs in the collection may be protected even if they were not registered with the Copyright Office. Additionally, researchers should be advised that determining the copyright status of photographs can be problematic because of the lack of pertinent information, and researchers often have to make calculated risk decisions concerning the appropriate use of an image when its copyright status is unknown or ambiguous. Privacy and publicity rights may also apply."

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question If a photo was distributed to a newspaper, would it then be enough if the newspaper was renewed, or would the photo have to be renewed separately? If a photo was published in multiple newspapers, was it then enough if one of the newspapers was renewed, or did all newspapers have to be renewed? --Stefan4 (talk) 13:33, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
    • That can be a thorny question, but generally only the actual copyright owner (or owners, if multiple parties had interests in the copyright) had standing to renew. Or, the newspapers would have to claim they were acting as "authorized agents" for the copyright owners. That would be likely for stuff contributed primarily to that newspaper, but I doubt it would apply for AP photos (as the agent would have large authority over the copyright itself). Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:31, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Renewals are only relevant for works published prior to 1964. For a 1976 photo, it never needed to be registered nor renewed for its copyright to be valid today.

File:Streisand - agency photo.jpg[edit]

The DR for this image made no sense at all. It was a full and obvious publicity photo, with borders, and detailed description information. It included her name, the name of her PR agency and even their street address. She was posed, staring at the camera. From the name of the PR firm, it is easily found that it was from early in her career. It was even autographed, as many publicity photos were when given out. Yet the tagging editor still called all of that and its description "guesswork!" --Light show (talk) 04:23, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Do you have evidence that it was published in the 1960s? Then it should be a clear {{PD-1978}}. -- King of ♠ 06:22, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
This website shows them as her PR agency in 1966 for her tour, "An Evening with Barbra Streisand. Also shows same hair style and age appearance. --Light show (talk) 06:35, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
I don't think the mere existence of a 1966 tour shows that she wasn't still with the same PR agency past 1978. And hairstyle and age appearance are highly subjective. -- King of ♠ 07:55, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
She stayed with the PR agency, but it went through many name changes, which means we can tell that this photo was produced by 1972 at the latest. We went through all of this in its last undeletion request a month ago. I believe the outstanding issues were the possibility that it wasn't published and the possibility that there may have been a copyright notice on the back of the photo. I don't believe either should give rise to significant doubt, but not everyone agreed.
I do feel that the last undeletion request was closed poorly, concluding there was "general agreement" that the evidence for the image's freedom was grossly insufficient, when only one person had said that (or anything like that). --Avenue (talk) 11:35, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
There's no evidence regarding the date or manner of publication of the image. The image upload did not present the back of the image; and nothing about the physical photo itself provided any information about the date or manner of the original publication (or even that the image had been previously published). Just because many publicity photos have fallen into the public domain doesn't justify a blanket presumption -- "Wikipedia Commons, where 90% of the images are free for reuse" isn't the guiding principle. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (talk) 14:11, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I can't see the image, but is it the same one as on this page, which has a copyright notice with "CPC-FG-1" on it? If so it would seem as though the copyright would be claimed by Columbia Pictures Corporation, and was part of a "Funny Girl" series, which would point to a 1968 date. There are several ebay examples of similar copyright notices on publicity material such as here and here which show clear copyright notices on those distributed copies. As such, it would seem likely that those published versions were distributed with copyright notices. Unless it can be shown to be an earlier photo simply used as part of that publicity campaign, I think we would need pretty solid evidence that this particular copy was also distributed, without a copyright notice (front or back), and that it's likely a number of copies were distributed the same way. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:53, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it's the same photo. --Light show (talk) 16:04, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, same photo, although our copy seemed much better exposed, and obviously did not have the copyright notice in that spot. I'm not sure I would go as far as Carl - to me it still seems fairly likely that our file came from a copy without a copyright notice, and I think the official distribution of even one such copy should be enough to make it PD. I note that both the linked eBay examples retain the copyright notice on the actual photo, as well as including an additional notice in the text printed below it, neither of which is true for our image. But his discovery raises significant doubt for me, so unless we can find clear evidence of authorized distribution without a copyright notice, I agree the file should stay deleted. --Avenue (talk) 20:54, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Another option, considering the studio is still selling the movie, is to contact en:Columbia Pictures (Sony) and offer to restore their "publicity photo" if they make a sizable donation to WP ;) --Light show (talk) 22:00, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
If say a couple thousand copies were distributed with a copyright notice, and a one-off copy was distributed without one, the courts would generally deem that copyright was not lost. They might consider that any actions made on the assumed lack of copyright were not infringement or at least quite mitigated, if the accused infringer didn't know any better, but they would not rule that copyright was lost if it was only a relatively few copies which lacked notice. What markings are on our version? Are there any dates? Particularly ones which would indicate the publication of that copy in particular? A copy made at the time which had remained private until a warehouse was cleaned out in 1999 would not help, for example. There is at least one other photo taken during that session (see here). If these were previously published (and already public domain) photos used during the Funny Girl publicity campaign, then the copyright notice would not mean anything, but... I'd be very cautious based on that copyright claim. It's also possible someone just airbrushed out the notice when making a copy later on, as well (either not caring or wanting the notice to be elsewhere). Or the different exposures could indicate a separate printing, who knows. Carl Lindberg (talk) 03:56, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
The interesting thing is that if WP contacted some of the studios or networks about their publicity photos they would almost say OK. I say "almost," because while most of their photos have boilerplate text, like this one, which "grants permission" to the press, they specifically exclude it being used for "advertising purposes." That's partly because they don't want anyone misleading a customer with a celebrity photo on a product or ad. If there was a commons license that likewise restricted its use from advertising for re-users, in effect copying the "permission" that studios already have given to the press, they might give us the same permission. After all, it helps them. Is that possible? --Light show (talk) 04:27, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
You are correct that the "advertising purposes" is typically to protect personality aka publicity rights, which are separate from the copyright. But while such organizations would almost always be OK with the photo's usage on Wikipedia, and usually would have no problem licensing it that way, they usually have a much different take on making it truly "free", i.e. usable by anyone for any purpose (although still constrained by the publicity rights, which are not licensed at all). We can't accept "wikipedia-only" licenses though, which is the usual result of asking someone for permission for use on Wikipedia. They also may have an issue with using it for commercial purposes (a separate concept, in copyright law, from "commercial purposes" in a publicity rights context), and may not wish to risk the confusion that "free for everyone" may cause someone to assume they can use it in ways which violates publicity rights, or may not want to give up copyright in case publicity rights have expired in a jurisdiction (they often expire at death, but it can differ state-by-state, with e.g. California now granting a longer term). But, if you want to try using one of the email templates to have the copyright owner email permission to COM:OTRS, that would be great. But there's really no modifying the central premise, that works must be licensed to anyone, for whatever purpose, and with no other restrictions which are based on the copyright itself.

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Vahur Joala[edit]

This was a bad faith deletion. Uploaders are not obliged to provide high resolution and/or EXIF. Please don't nominate images for deletion without reasonable doupt, e.g. if the same images are available on the internet with different attribution. (Also note the note on DR page by some upset anonymous user, probably the uploader.) 193.40.10.181 18:58, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There's no bad faith at all here. This is a completely routine action. When we see a new uploader who gives us a batch of small images with no EXIF, it is reasonable to assume that the uploader may not understand the rules. We take such action several times every day. In this case, several of the images, including File:Sten Kalder 1.jpg and File:Rasmus Haugasmägi.jpg, appear in several places on the web with a copyright notice, so that the nom and the closing Admin had more than reasonable doubt -- they had proof. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:43, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
In general, in what sense is this reasonable to assume that the new uploader may not understand the rules? Is it less reasonable to assume that if new user gives you a batch of high resolution "own works" with EXIF taken from random internet soruce? Possibly you should reconsider this routine.
Anyways, to prevent confusion then the deleting admin might want to give the real reason next time (e.g. there's proof too). 193.40.10.181 21:14, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
The easiest way to get high resolution works with EXIF is to shoot them yourself. And if you do copy them from somewhere else, the EXIF frequently has enough information to make it pretty obvious.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:25, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
"...in what sense is this reasonable to assume..." - It's reasonable because it works. Please remember that the rule on Commons is that a file must be proven beyond a significant doubt to be OK -- it is guilty unless proven innocent. We get around 8,000 new images every day. About a quarter of those are eventually deleted for a variety of reasons. Most of that work is done by a dozen Admins. In order to deal with the high volume in a reasonable way, we make certain assumptions. In the vast majority of cases of a batch of low-res files with no EXIF, they are taken from the web. Fewer than 1/10 of 1% of all deletions are reversed here on review.
In this case, the deleting Admin did not know anything more than that they were low-res, no EXIF files -- he had no "real reason" to give. I found the appearance on the Web after I read this UnDR. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:22, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Bear passant.svg yet again another time around[edit]

Could someone actually look at the specific situation with this particular file -- instead of delivering a standardized generic boilerplate response that has nothing to do with the specific case of this particular file, and then closing the section on this page without any useful comments or discussion??

There was an unnecessary and semi-stupid deletion conducted on the file, which was then almost immediately re-created. It would be nice if the deletion could be undone, so that the file-version upload history and image description page edit history could be accurate. Thank you for your attention to this matter. AnonMoos (talk) 02:04, 18 September 2013 (UTC)


Done, I have restored the file history, as per the reasons given in this request. In particular, the original reason for deletion (broken SVG) was gone already at the time of deletion.

Template:Attribution-TRGov-Military[edit]

{{Attribution-TRGov-Military}} and the files associated with it were speedy deleted by Jcb due to problems with the Ticket:2012071110005537. While I think Jcb jumped the gun and mass deleted files prematurely, I am not contesting the actual file deletions at this point. I however request the license itself and either the file description pages be undeleted or I be provided with the information on each of them with a list of the files. I ask this information so I can work with tr.wikipedia community in an attempt to try to get a free license permission to TRGov-Military related files. I am told the files involved are listed "here (except the last one)". Again I am not requesting the undeletion of the files, rather their description pages (or a compilation of their content elsewhere).

Licenses should not be deleted if they are invalid. They should instead be marked as invalid explaining the reason. Normally OTRS files are given a week but not in this case.

-- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 16:28, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

The ticket does not contain a valid permission. The last message in the ticket dates from more than a year ago. Normally we grant one month to sort thing out after we receive something at OTRS. We gave you an additional year. Not sure why you call that 'speedy'. Jcb (talk) 16:51, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
I wasn't involved with the original ticket. I merely worked on the template makeup. An OTRS member verified the ticket and it remained as such for about a year until last week when I asked if the ticket was really valid. Yes, it was I who reported the possible problem. Before I could verify it with a native speaker you decided google translate was good enough. I was given an actual 2 or 3 days (IIRC) to sort the issue and you closed it in about 3 hours after it was posted on the OTRS noticeboard. It baffles me why you do not want to undelete content that contain nothing more than metadata. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 16:57, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

That means that if the author actually did use a lot of images from WP, then the document is probably a copyright violation, since most WP images require attribution. If that is correct, we cannot use it because the source is a copyvio. Also, I note that you claimed the images were your own work.

I would still oppose it -- I think that the author of your source document has taken a lot of images from various places including WP and ignored their licenses which require attribution. For example, on page 53 of the document, the Commons image File:PlanePair2.jpg whose license requires attribution is shown without attribution.

File:Salam Jawed Concert2.jpg [edit]

Re Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_of_User:Salamjawed: DR closing statement by admin Fastily («blatantly out of scope. unused personal images») is somewhat equivocal when applied to a public performace before a live audience (South Asian Bands Festival). -- Tuválkin 10:32, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

If the artist or the festival is notable (not necessarily in Wikipedia sense, them being good examples of local culture is enough for us), it should probably not be regarded as a personal photo. Does the focus, the quality or something like that make the image less interesting? Is the festival itself uninteresting or do we have enough photos from it? --LPfi (talk) 14:42, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
How can an international public event, where to travel musicians from thousands of kilometers away, be non-notable?!

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose File:Salam Jawed Concert2.jpg is a pic of an unidentified group of people taking a group pic in a lobby, with Jawed on the left. They're wearing regular street clothes, t-shirts, etc. File:Salam Jawed Concert.jpg is a very small image of a band on stage (596 × 289). You can't really make out their faces and they're unidentified, though I would guess that Jawed is one of them. They are wearing pants and t-shirts. The background of the stage itself would be a possible keeper for me if the image wasn't so tiny and we could see it in some decent detail. Also, if there were elements to either image that showed "local culture" I would say restore, but there are none.

There are also permission/copyright concerns with these. Salam Jawed himself appears in these, and several of them look to be done by a pro photog, and none look to be shot by Salam himself. The small sizes and lack of EXIF are problematic, especially as the whole group of photos (Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_of_User:Salamjawed) looks to have been uploaded with the intent of promotion of Salam Jawed.

WMF-VE-reference-steps[edit]

The purpose of the list was to allow commentators to navigate between the mockups. It is transcluded onto each screen image page. The list was deleted this morning, with the rationale:

"09:48, 23 September 2013 Jameslwoodward (talk | contribs) deleted page WMF-VE-reference-steps (Empty or single image gallery; please see Commons:Galleries: content was: "Step 1 · Step 2 · Step 3a · :File:..." (and the only co...)"

Grounds for restoring:

  1. This is not a gallery. Perhaps this wasn't sufficiently clear to the deleting admin.
  2. To the extent that it is useful for WMF to consult on proposed UI changes, this serves a useful purpose.
  3. It is transcluded into six other pages, and the deleting admin has apparently not removed these transclusions.
  4. It wouldn't have been sufficient to upload this file to mediawiki rather than commons, because WMF's developer had decided to upload the proposed screenshots to commons .

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have taken the liberty of using numbers on your points to respond to them individually.
1) It is a gallery. Any Commons page without a prefix (File:, User:, Commons:, etc.) is a gallery. Galleries are solely for collections of images.
2) That may be. It may be eligible with the "Commons:" prefix, but not as a gallery. If it is being transcluded then perhaps it should have the "Template:" prefix.
3) We see approximately 100 new gallery pages every day created by users who are not auto-patrollers. 90% of them are out of scope and are deleted. Since we do not expect gallery pages to be linked or transcluded, we do not check "what links here".
4) OK
5) At one level, perhaps better education of new users would help. It was obvious to me that this was not an appropriate Commons gallery, but not to Pointillist. If the page had an appropriate prefix, the problem would not have happened. On another level, I don't think we should worry about avoiding this kind of situation in the future. I doubt that we have an UnDR arising from actions by Admins doing New Page Patrol more than once every ten days or more. We delete approximately 2,000 pages every day. Ten Admins do almost all of that work. Asking them to change procedures to avoid problems at the one tenth of one percent level would be counter productive. .     Jim . . . .

File:Reba Toney.jpg [edit]

On September 18, 2013 you deleted my photo File:Reba Toney.jpg . At the time, I was new to Wiki Commons and misread what Wiki was asking me to do. I thought that I had to add all sites where the photo could be found. The photo taken is personal property that has been used as publicity multiple times. How can I go about appealing the photo deletion? Step by step instructions would be helpful.

File:Funny photo of friend.jpg [edit]

In the DR closing (here), admin explains that this needs to be deleted because «guy in the middle has a huge glare spot right over his head from the sun. This is blatantly out of scope», in reply of my keep vote about this being an «Unique case among Category:Growing from head photos.» This shows that closing admin could not be arsed to even read the keep vote, as uncomprehension was shown, not disagreement. Please reevaluate. -- Tuválkin 08:39, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

I responded to each of your individual votes one by one in that DR, but I didn't take the time to read them? I guess you just felt like being unnecessarily rude here. I stand by the deletion. INeverCry 22:06, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
No need to feel any rudeness, I’m here to help create a really awesome free media repository, not to chum up — hopefully you are too. So, you addressed my arguments in that really long collective DR, supporting both keep and delete votes, not because I’m a really nice guy who deserves to have his arguments heard because of said niceness but, I hope, because maybe what I have to say makes sense. (That’s why I read with care and attention even opinions of Commons regulars whom I find morally dispeakable but who are smart and productive nonetheless, and I tend to skip the blather of others who would be probably favorite goof-around buddies should we ever meet in meatspace but who sadly use Commons’ talk pages to act out the proverbial classroom clown.)
That said, it is obvious that you either didn’t read my keep-vote argument for this one, or you decided to ignore it. I said that this photo showing the sun shining behind a guy’s head fits among Category:Growing from head photos as a singular such case — and your closing did not reply, say, about how the sun should not be considered akin to wall-mounted antlers or some such, you simply based your decision on boilerplate photographic quality, no reply about that very specific and margin possible interest of this photo. Thence my undeletion request.
It's always better to be respectful and courteous when speaking with others here and anywhere. Making rude and snarky comments doesn't get your point across better, it just makes others less likely to listen to you and consider your arguments. As for the image, the glare from the sun obscures most of the guy's head and face and over-exposes the top third of the image. The other images in the category you referred to are clearer and higher in overall quality. INeverCry 23:21, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Just as we do not keep blurry photos to illustrate bad photography, we should not keep a photo with the sun directly over the subject's head for the same reason. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:55, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
We do keep blurry photos to illustrate bad photography — how else would it be possible to illustrate bad photography? Bad photography is a subject that Commons should be able to provide illustrations for, just like any other. Of course those examples must be retricted to carefully selected examples, suitably categorized, and kept away from denotative illustrations (although paired up with correct equivalents for comparison). Or am I wrong? -- Tuválkin 22:33, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Teaching photography is of extremely high interest to Commons and not out of scope! Analysing other people's mistakes and learning from them is one way to improve your photography skills. A collection of photographs that show mistakes in photography is useful and highly eductative. This is the reason why I created Category:Photographic mishaps. Deleting them is counter-productive. Even without knowing this specific picture I tend to Symbol keep vote.svg Keep. --Sitacuisses (talk) 12:41, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Aside from my opinions above on scope, another issue I have with the "mistakes" approach is the lack of sensitivity to uploaders when there are identifiable people involved in private situations like this. The above image is a "funny personal pic" taken in a backyard; how would the photographer and subjects of this image feel about having their image kept on Commons solely to illustrate how badly it was done, and what mistakes were made?

File:Michael Pocalyko DESA.jpg[edit]

I am the author of the biography of Michael Pocalyko (BLP) that appears in the English-language Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Pocalyko.

As an important part of that Wikipedia article, in March 2012 I uploaded the file Michael Pocalyko DESA.jpg to Wikimedia Commons. The file is a photograph of the subject of the biography.

The Wikimedia Commons file Michael Pocalyko DESA.jpg was deleted on 20 September 2013 by Fastily, flagged as "no permission given."

As a result of this action, I wrote to the photographer, who had released the copyright under Creative Commons License even before I uploaded the photograph in March 2012.

The photographer, Carl Daniel Cox of Rockville, Maryland USA, is not a registered user of Wikipedia. Therefore at my request he has now twice written an e-mail to the permissions-commons e-mail address. He reports that has not received a ticket number or any e-mail response from that address.

The full text of Carl Daniel Cox's e-mail granting permission is quoted here:
