Matches played at Moses Mabhida Stadion[edit]

These photos were uploaded to illustrate specific FIFA World Cup matches played at Moses Mabhida Stadion, but they were deleted together with other images due to lack of FOP in South Africa. However, it seems to be a common practice to allow pictures of matches played inside the stadia if images are not illustrating much else then stands without notable architectural features — at least this is the result of discussion on the village pump and some examples at COM:TOO#Architecture (although I am not sure it applies to all images of stadia in South Africa due to possibly different TOO). Thus I believe that images of matches should be undeleted even if they are played at non-free stadia, probably by cropping notable architectural features if they are prominent. Thanks — NickK (talk) 23:31, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose These are broad sweeping views of the whole stadium. The players are de minimis to the architecture of the stadium. In the last of the three, the players are only five pixels high and two pixels wide -- completely indistinguishable. In all three cases, there is nothing to show who is playing or that it is a World Cup event except the caption. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:28, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
    I probably agree with the last one (I did remember that one was a broad view, but in a very high resolution, so it could have been cropped). The two remaining, although not from a perfect position, do illustrate the match (judging from usage, they did illustrate articles about relevant teams), and the fact that players are small is due to the angle of the photo (it is very unlikely to take a photo where players are large from spectators' seats) — NickK (talk) 18:56, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't see the second one, but the first one and the third one are definitely showing more of the architecture than would be considered de minimis. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:16, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
    If you think that the architecture (here definitely the arch) is too visible, it is always possible to crop it — NickK (talk) 01:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
I have nothing against reuploading the cropped version. --Eleassar (t/p) 07:49, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
I think a crop would fail on the grounds that it wasn't useful. As I said above, the players are two pixels wide and five high -- at that size they could be Klingons and you couldn't tell who they were. It's more or less the same size as a lower case i without the dot on this screen. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:56, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
For the last one, as I cannot see the image, I indeed mixed it with another one. I will replace it with another one where the stadium is explicitely out of focus so that it can hardly be distinguished. However, I cannot upload the cropped versions of two first images as the user has switched license of his Flickr stream to All rights reserved, and these images are not available under Creative Commons anymore — NickK (talk) 19:04, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
The new third image is fine, thank you. As for the other two, since we have the Flickrreview tag from the upload bot showing that they were freely licensed, we can put that tag on crops if you make them. Of course it will have to be the same base image, but that's easy to check. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:56, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
@Nickk, if you'd like to make crops, here are the original photos -FASTILY 21:55, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Closing as moot. If the copyright elements are cropped out, then the two remaining photos are ok for Commons. I'll host the original files for the next few days if anybody wants to take care of that -FASTILY 09:37, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

File:Mumtaz (actress).jpg[edit]

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: The image had been deleted a number of times earlier. It used to be restored after the deleting administrator was satisfied with my explanations, which are now also available on the image page. I had taken the photo around 40 years back, when I attended an outdoor shoot of Mumtaz for the film Taangewala. As the photo print had aged quite a bit, I had scanned it over 5 years ago, and had retouched it. Along with my last undeletion request, I had forwarded the scan (the uploaded version) as well as a photo of the actual photograph, to Yusuke Matsubara, who undeleted the image this time. However, the image has been deleted yet again. Please undelete it. Juhi47 (talk) 12:21, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

File:The Quest sculpture, Portland, Oregon 1.jpg[edit]

I'm not sure why this was speedily deleted and without notification on the uploader's talk page. The consensus seems to be that FOP cases shouldn't be speedily deleted. In any case, SIRIS tells that the statue was "Commissioned 1967. 1970" and there is no mention of any inscription, so the statue would appear to satisfy {{PD-US-no notice}}. Also: File:The Quest sculpture, Portland, Oregon 2.jpg and File:The Quest sculpture, Portland, Oregon 3.jpg probably show the same statue, based on the file names. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:01, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is far from free. It fails in two different ways to meet Commons requirements.

  • "This is subject to the material being reproduced accurately" -- that limits the use to an ND license, which we do not permit.
  • "not being used in a derogatory manner or in a misleading context" -- that limits the uses to which the image can be put. A free license would permit the image to be used to mock or satirize the subject.

File:Dr-sanjay-kolte.jpg[edit]

Hi,

I am Dr. sanjay kolte and I have submitted that image by myself. I also make a user page with this image, and I thinks posting of own image does not create any copyright issue. I also believes that my work in laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeries is noticeable. I've successfully completed thousands of surgeries and has tons of experience. So that I think I deserves a Wiki page that's why I've posted my article here. Please consider this application and cancel this deletion.

Inga Neverauskaite Fitness Pro.jpeg [edit]

This photograph is the property of Inga Neverauskaite, for whom I have created the Wikipedia page. She is a friend of mine and she herself gave me the photos and information and asked me to to create the page. The photograph is from a portfolio belonging to Inga that was created for her by Bill Dobbins. She owns the photograph and is at liberty to use it wherever and whenever she pleases. I credited both Inga and Bill Dobbins within the information for the image, so I am not sure why it has been deleted citing copyright infringement as the reason.

Request temporary undeletion If the photo itself is under a free licence (I don't know as the file is deleted) and the deletion was due to the protected packaging only, we can probably move it to German Wikipedia and keep it there.

File:Mw bennytour newy 01.jpg [edit]

The subject and File:MarkWilkinson LizottesNewcastle 2012.jpg were deleted recently without discussion at the request of the uploader:

The uploader's two nominations did not mention that the subject is a notable musician and that these are the only two images we have of him performing on stage. See Mark Wilkinson (singer) and Category:Mark Wilkinson. We do not generally delete images at the request of the uploader and I think we should not have done so in this case.

Erroneously deleted. The credit line is NASA/CXC/Rutgers/J.Hughes et.al. Per Category:Chandra_images this means that the image is in public domain. The policy of the website is irrelevant. Ruslik (talk) 18:24, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The creator, John Hughes, is not an NASA employee. Although he may or may not have used NASA facilities in creating this image, that does not make it a NASA image. Hughes owns the copyright and in order to restore it here we will need permission from him.
The comment at Category:Chandra_images is probably wrong. It quotes an OTRS e-mail from a person at NASA who does not appear to be a lawyer or employed in a legal capacity. I think she misunderstands the law.
I don't think for a minute that it is correct that all images taken using Chandra are PD. The telescope is simply a very large and expensive camera. It is well established that copyright belongs to the photographer, not the owner of the camera. It is therefore clear that the copyright belongs to the investigators or, possibly, their institution, not to NASA, unless the investigator actually was an employee of NASA at the time the image was created. .     Jim . . . .

File:Todd_Weather_Folios_South_Australian_Rainfall_1894_Oct_6.jpg[edit]

I am requesting the undeletion of this file and the other associated Todd weather folio images. The copyright is Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. As stated at the bottom of this website http://charlestodd.net/Todd_Hi-Res/ When I uploaded the images I thought the age of the documents was enough for copyright. I am uploading the images on behalf of The Australian Meteorological Association which took the images of the old folios. The image upload was suggested by the reviewer when the site was accepted. I tried uploading again with the correct copyright information but it was blocked. The names of the other images are: File:Todd_Weather_Folios_Synoptic_chart_1883_Nov_10.jpg File:Todd_Weather_Folios_Early_chart_1879_Feb_15.jpg File:Todd_Weather_Folios_Early_synoptic_chart_1882_May_29.jpg File:Todd_Weather_Folios_Letter_1883_Dec_5.jpg File:Todd_Weather_Folis_overseas data 1898 May 13.jpg --Rlduns (talk) 21:59, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Alberto Martinez.jpg [edit]

I am in possession of the record of trial in US v. Martinez as provided to me under the Freedom of Information Act. A copy of this image is included in records provided to me by the government. This fact tends to indicate that the photo is in the public domain as a government work and/or a record of a court proceeding.

I don't think OTRS are going to help with that one. It's a simple and common misunderstanding of freedom of information versus copyright legislation. The fact that one has the right to access the information does not mean that one has the right to modify and distribute it. Content that's not produced by the government does not enter the public domain simply because it is entered into evidence in a trial; if that were the case, copyright lawsuits would defeat their own purpose.

As is carefully explained at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Prof Joseph Heller zoologist-malacologist faculty of Science Hebrew University Jerusalem.JPG, we do not believe you -- there is no reason why you should have uploaded such a small image if you are actually the photographer.
Even so, since it appeared on a copyrighted web site before you uploaded it here, we require a license from that site using the procedure at Commons:OTRS. We would also appreciate a much larger version of the image. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:08, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Hallo,

I would like to request an Undeletion of the Photo, because it is the Official Emblem of the Party to whom the article is attributed. And to check for it, you Just need to click on the official Party Webpage (mentioned in the Article).

I believe that When we Attribute to an Political-Party-Article a Photo of their Emblem (used on their Official Website), we are not violating any Copyright!

File:Lenoir hippomobile 1860.jpg[edit]

The article on EERE specifly stated that all material in the article are free to use and reuse. Also all publications from the American government are copyright free (in the public domain). so please restore this picture. Cheers Mion (talk) 16:42, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose: The source was this pdf which does not say anything about the copyright status of images therein, let alone that they are free to use and reuse. Secondly, publications of the US government are not necessarily copyright free. Only works of federal authorship are public domain. The federal government is allowed to hold copyrights on works transferred to it and is allowed to use copyrighted images under the fair use provision like any other entity. For example, in this very pdf, page 27 is a copy of a newspaper article, page 28 is an image from Top Gear, page 29 is a cover of National Geographic Magazine, etc. By merely including these images in its publication, the US government does not magically eliminate their respective copyrights. Similarly, the large number of unambiguously non-government works in this pdf suggest that the deleted hippomobile image is also not a government image. Эlcobbola talk 17:00, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Well the fact that other images are under copyright doesn't make that apply to this image, for this pdf the US Government rules apply that if not stated otherwise, the work is in the public domain as the pdf is created by a government body. I propose that the images stays till someone can proof it owns if any copyright on it.Mion (talk) 18:42, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
The burden of proof is on you, per COM:EVID. There's no evidence this is the work of the federal government - quite the contrary, per above. Эlcobbola talk 18:47, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I dont agree, you state its copyrighted, you proof it.Mion (talk) 18:54, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I have not said it is copyrighted; I've said it has not been demonstrated to be a government image - your burden. "In all cases, the burden of proof lies on the uploader or other person arguing for the file to be retained to demonstrate that [...] the file is in the public domain or is properly licensed" (COM:EVID). On page 22, they use an official Mercedes press photo (here) with no attribution. So too with the hippomobile; a lack of attribution does not mean it is of government authorship, especially because that assumption would be contrary to the nature of the other images in the pdf. Эlcobbola talk 19:01, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Wow, that's a lot of images used without attribution. I don't see any reason to guess that the image under question is any different then the ones we can solidly prove weren't created by the author. (And no, Commons keeps stuff we have good reason to believe is Free, not stuff that we can't prove is copyrighted.)--Prosfilaes (talk) 19:10, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
If it's the one I think it is from the PDF, there is a watermark on there which looks like the ones seen on this page, which is for a "Haris Bros Auto Museum" (which I think was an online website, from Budapest, which went offline a number of years ago from the looks of it). So, that was probably the immediate source -- these are mostly images obtained from the web. In looking I have seen that same image (and similar ones) in other places without that mark, so that "museum" is probably not the original source either. But, it's safe to say it's not a US Government work. Carl Lindberg (talk) 09:59, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Mars Orbitor Mission Launch.jpg[edit]

Reason given for deletion: Copyright violation: pib.nic.in doesnt allow sharing. Thus unsuitable for Common's licensing policy. The file was removed by User:Dharmadhyaksha

This file was released by Press Information Bureau, Government of India. Image can be located on their website (HERE) released under public domain. The image is NOT copyrighted! Please read the website's copyright policy:(HERE).

I'm posting an excerpt from the website's copyright policy here:

"Material featured on this website may be reproduced free of charge and there is no need for any prior approval for using the content.

Is this not an approval for sharing? Can I know which rule I've missed now??

If the license was not the most appropriate one, it could have been changed. Why was the file deleted? Shubhamkanodia (talk) 14:41, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi! The pib.nic.in link given above further reads: "The permission to reproduce this material shall not extend to any third-party material. Authorisation to reproduce such material must be obtained from the departments/copyright holders concerned. The material must be reproduced accurately and not used in a derogatory manner or in a misleading context." We are not exactly sure if the image present there is produced by them or the "third-party" which they speak of in the next line. Also, we host images on Commons which can freely be used by other number of people without needing to ask for permissions again. We also allow only those images which can be freely modified. Thats why, images from pib.nic.in have always been deleted. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 15:09, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Restore for sure the first 4 or them for clear DM. The photos focus on the sports event. Dubious about the last two, because though it pictures a large portion of arena, nonetheless the centre of the image is the pitch and the subject cannot be anything but the event.

With File:Arena Bonifika.jpg, the whole image is grainy, but enough of the building is readily visible that I think this should not be restored. File:Stožice1.jpg also seems problematic to me, with quite heavy cropping needed to remove the curved balcony. I think the bottom half is probably okay though. Cropping the top from File:Podmežakla Hall.png would seem to leave little creative architectural detail visible, and darkening it to reduce the overexposure on the court would help too, so with some editing I think that one could be restored. --Avenue (talk) 12:55, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Here is the detail of the rights printed in the book: (c) Jasmina Šopova et Vladimir Šopov /myself and my late brother/ (c) Ante Popovski, 1994, pour l'introduction (c) Actes Sud, 1994, pour la postface (c) UNESCO, 1994, pour la traduction française ISBN Actes Sud 2-7427-0203-2 ISBN Unesco 92-3-202964-2. Illustration de couverture: Portrait d'Aco Šopov par Dimitar Kondovski Collection particulière /my own collection/ (Tous droits réservés)

According to the publishers, the cover of the book can be freely reproduced. The book is out of print. Please let me know if you need more information in order to allow the undeletion of the file file Aco Šopov Anthologie.jpg Thanking you in advance, Jasmina Šopova —Preceding unsigned comment added by Јасмина Шопова (talk • contribs) 13:01, 10 November 2013‎ (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This image has been restored by Marcus Cyron, following a request on his talk page. It contains a painting by Dimitar Kondovski who died in 1993. While Kondovski's heirs may have licensed the painting for use on the book cover, it is very unlikely that they licensed it for general use, as we would require. Also, the note above suggests that the copyright to the book is held by User:Јасмина Шопова and the estate of her brother. We have no evidence of permission from the latter. It seems to be that in order to keep this image we should have permission from both Kondovski's heirs and the heirs of Šopova's brother, both using the procedure at COmmons:OTRS. 23:01, 11 November 2013 (UTC).     Jim . . . .

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Loftus Versfeld[edit]

It was determined in the deletion request that this stadium is a 1923–28 work by an unknown architect. However, wrongly a 70 years pma term was applied instead of South African copyright law. According to South African copyright law any building is an "artistic work" (see definition of an "artistic work"). This stadium was created under the direction of Pretoria City Council in 1923–28 and thus falls under {{PD-South-Africa}} (an artistic, literary or musical work created under the direction of the state or an international organization and 50 years have passed since the year the work was published), as 50 years have passed since "publication". Thus this stadium is in public domain under {{PD-South-Africa}} and its photos should be undeleted — NickK (talk) 18:30, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, as long as there is no evidence that the city council qualifies as part of the state. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:36, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
    According to my researches South African courts use a very broad definition of "the State", including all local governments and all governmental organisations. An extreme case can be found here, where it is stated that even a printer of local council is considered part of "the State". This article also provides summary of previous court decisions: courts have never accepted arguments that a governmental organisation is not a part of "the State", the only discussions were on whether "the State" could really control the creation of the work. Here all the sources state that it was Pretoria City Council that effectively erected the stadium, thus it is clear that "the State" had a real control over this project — NickK (talk) 12:41, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

File:" 13 - ITALY - monuments of Milan in art - marking pen drawings colored by children - Teatro alla Scala.jpg ‎ [edit]

I open this topic to allow non-expert user (author of the drawings and the author of the photo) to comment on these deleted images, short the affected user intervenes to declare what he has to say--Pava (talk) 21:42, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are two questions here, copyvio and scope. In order to keep these images we will, in each case, require permission from the parents or guardians of all of the children who participated in creating it. Without that we are violating the copyrights. As for scope, we do not generally keep personal art from non-notable artists, which these certainly are. If we decide that children's paintings are in scope, I have two grandchildren who would delighted to have their work posted here. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:07, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
    children have only colorful, not drawn, there is no copyright. Are only reproductions (the purpose is not art, but documentation), the purpose is not artistic but have a graphical representation of an object, it has a good use and of course copyright does not subsist, the images the author has already issued a free license. --Pava (talk) 17:02, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
    However for copyright, if you do not trust the words of one who has the rights, on the site where these photos are posted to the statement that there shall be issued free license CC-BY-SA 3.0 ITALY --Pava (talk) 17:26, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
    I am the author and I release, as indicated by license, the drawings under license CC-BY-SA 3.0 it. All the architects who designed the works reproduced in drawings have been dead for more than 70 years --Giuliabombelli (talk) 22:22, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support IMO it's ridicolous to consider childrens drawings works of art and to put a problem of copyright. -- DenghiùComm (talk) 06:58, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The children contribution is limited to colored areas ad therefore it's below Threshold of originality. The artistic content is inherent the monument portrayed. The scope is to document how an institution attracts youth towards art. -- Fulvio 314 08:35, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Jim's reasons don't seem convincing to me. I am in favor of restoring the drawings and I give my consent: as Fulvio and Pava said the scope is to document ways to make monuments and architectures known by the children. We have the necessary informations, including the link to the blog where the images are published to deduce that there is no copyright violation.--Giuliabombelli (talk) 20:07, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It may be your opinion that children's drawings aren't copyrightable, but that doesn't make it legal fact. Children are people, and as people their creative work is copyrighted. I might accept the coloring as uncopyrightable if it were done by a careful colorist, but not the idiosyncratic coloring of children.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:39, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
    But, here, children have only colored no drawing, is like saying that if I do those one of those magazines for children where there are coloring in the blanks then I have the copyright on that work. You can know what we are discussing? However, the source from which the images are taken with the states free license CC-BY-SA 3.0, and that site is run by teachers and parents. All this discussion is considered to be personal, who has the rights of the photos has released with CC-BY-SA 3.0. You can find out what else is there to talk about? --Pava (talk) 20:32, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
    If this were 1900, I might agree with you; after a century of black squares and paint splatter being art, I'm not convinced that drawing over an outline is not art. (I'm not even sure that it hasn't been sold to some museum.) And if this were precision work done in Photoshop, the coloring probably wouldn't be copyrightable in the US (I don't know about Italy), but being hand-colored does make a difference.--Prosfilaes (talk) 06:31, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
    ok, but it just so happens that those who hold the rights (the blog is run by parents and teachers) has already released the work under a free license, so the problem does not arise. Right? --Pava (talk) 18:04, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose No support (court cases, statutory law, legal scholarship) has been provided for the notions above that children are ineligible to be granted copyrights and/or that these works are below the threshold of originality. TOO generally requires only a minimal amount of creativity (indeed, it is merely a prohibition against copying in the US) which could conceivably be satisfied by color selection alone. If children, as minors, are ineligible to hold copyrights, there would need to be clarification as to whether no rights would be granted at all or whether rights would be granted but held by legal, non-minor guardians. If the guardians hold the copyright, the blog would need to identify explicitly parental release under the free licenses; I don't see that it does. Эlcobbola talk 22:21, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
REPEAT (this is the fourth time): the parents (or his deputy, or custodians) of children, have already given their consent HERE with license CC-BY-SA 3.0-it. Do you (we) understand or not? In addition, while we can restore this? That has not been colored by children: File:" 13 - ITALY - monuments of Milan in art - marking pen drawings.jpg. The other should be restored because it has already been authorized their publication with proper license to commons, this discussion is now outdated, unnecessary. thank you --Pava (talk) 22:59, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I'll repeat: "the blog would need to identify explicitly parental release under the free licenses; I don't see that it does." Do you not understand? All it says is "All the images in this article are released under free license CC-BY-SA 3.0 ITALY" This is tantamount to Flickrwashing: authorization needs to come from the children or (more likely) parents, not some blogger. So where does the blog say anything about explicit parental release? Эlcobbola talk 00:26, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
OK, But it is the parents who run the blog with the teacher, the bloggher guardian of the parents, however, ok, I will ask a written release stating that parents are aware of, understand and authorize the publication under the license of colorful designs, despite this , is one of those designs in black and white, with no contributions from children, that can go restored, right? because its author has released use under CC-BY-SA 3.0-it --Pava (talk) 13:33, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
✓ Fatto as you can see now the statement is clear on the site, and melt away all doubt [2] (in the footer of the page, in bold, before the format of sharing with the social network.) the notice is this: <<The author Giulia Bombelli and the parents or guardians of the children who have realized the drawings and the colored drawings of the monuments of Milan reproduced in this article release the images under CC-BY-SA 3.0, where as “the author” must be included “Giulia Bombelli and bambinicreativi’s parents”>>
Your doubts are resolved now? --Pava (talk) 18:09, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Whoa! Parents may be the legal guardians and custodians of their children’s authorship rights, but they should not be mentioned as authors — obviously the chisldren are the authors, and should be idenfied (even if anonymously) as such. -- Tuválkin 11:32, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
children are already listed as authors, they were in the description of each photo in an anonymous "Giulia Bombelli e i bambini creativi di Milano" (Giulia Bombelli and creative children's Milan) --Pava (talk) 13:38, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I won't engage in this dispute. Moreover, I am sick and tired to repeat the same things every time there's an issue of alleged copyright violation regarding a subject pictured in Italy. I simply am irritated by the fact that someone must see Italians as people who ignore laws whereas there are customs and praxis too. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 09:09, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
    • How about you look at copyright stuff not in Italy? People nowhere care about the careful details of copyright law. We fuss about the definition of anonymous works, the definition of publication, about FoP in any number of countries, etc. Custom and praxis don't matter in the least; we care about the law.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:58, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
      • in this case, however, the law has been complied with and there is no breach of copyright , spoke also the author of the drawings which is also the one who took the pictures and there is the official website of the statement that all parents and guardians children have granted sharing with free license. SERGIO is a Director of wikimedia commons and Wikipedia Italian , I work on commons for 6 years , Fulvio also , it would be enough that you will fidaste other users since we are experts and we face on wikipedia and commons of these issues has existed for many years. In addition there is also a lack of willingness on your part to listen because for example of these 6 images one does not have even the colors of the children and I have asked several times if you agree to restore the meantime and have not received any response. Participate and improve commons , enforce the law and other users also means collaborating , listening, reading everything and answer all, take into consideration all the words of others , not this what I have to do only because I think it is only my interest in restoring the images should be in the interest of all.--Pava (talk) 18:21, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
        • In the past, the choice of colors was judged below the threshold of originality, i.e. DR of Windows logo. But now that the free license was clearly declared by the rightholder, the problem is overcome. All's Well That Ends Well. -- Fulvio 314 19:07, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Maria Zambrano de Gando[edit]

Hi, following is the message (discucion) posted to Taichi, since I have no answer from him I am appealing his decision.

Discusión:Maria Zambrano de Gando Saltar a: navegación, búsqueda Todo lo que esta escrito en la biografia de Maria Zambrano de Gando es REAL, nada es ficticio. Vivimos en una sociedad del YO, y por lo tanto ver q una joven persona como Maria tenga una larga carrera de ayuda social, la cual es facilmente comprobada, no es creible y suena a elogios innecesarios. Maria es un ejemplo a seguir, cuando la innudacion en Manta, ella albergo a mas de 40 personas en su Inn, dato q se me paso por alto, al ver este acto de solidaridad con los mas necesitados, se creo una cadena de ayuda, ya q ella comenzo a recibir los comestibles de diferentes negocios, empresas e instituciones. Como ves este dato pasado por alto en su biografia hubiera caido en la gategoria de: La página contiene un texto de autopromoción, publicitario o con muchos elogios innecesarios que no le permiten tener una redacción neutral. Pero la verdad es que si tuvieramos mas Maria, como ella, este mundo seria mucho mejor. Y es subjetivo aquello de: El artículo trata de un tema (grupo musical, página web, empresa, biografía, etc.) que no tiene un interés enciclopédico. Quiza deberiamos darle espacio a biografias como las de Maria Zambrano de Gando, que son ejemplos, donde se destaca la importancia del projimo, y la participacion social. Best regards, Elimurzam (discusión) 14:53 12 nov 2013 (UTC)

and this is a page's that has the same ground to be deleted but was not deleted [[3]] In Maria Zambrano de Gando's biography all the information is true, even the links in the reference section can prove it, theredore I am asking you to undelete her bio.

Symbol oppose vote.svg OpposeYou're going to have to do much better than that in explaining. While we generally assume that our colleagues are telling the truth, when a brand new editor appears on the scene and uploads a wide variety of professional images, magazine tear sheets, and posters, all of which have a copyright, we need more explanation than a simple assertion. How is it that you own the copyright to all of these? Are you aware that simply owning a copy of a photograph or a poster does not make you the copyright owner -- that requires a formal written agreement? .     Jim . . . .

File:Evangeličanska cerkev v Puconcih.jpg[edit]

Please, restore File:Evangeličanska cerkev v Puconcih.jpg. The church was built in 1784 and was redesigned for the last time in 1909 upon the plans by the architect Takács Lászlo (1880-1916).[6][7] Per Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Slovenia, it is in the public domain.

Hi, i'm not sure if this has been a miss understanding or not, but with the image that was deleted, I had permissions from the owner of the photo it's self (he is also the owner of the car).

File:Douglas Devananda 2.jpg: though from a black-listed Flickr-account, seems to be o.k.[edit]

This file was deleted as it came from a black-listed Flickr-account[9]. (the deletion also initiated a complaint at COM:AN/U.) However, when checking the overall situation, the authorship claim and the licensing[10] seem to be o.k. The image was uploaded to Flickr the same day in 2010 when it had been shot, assuming that the EXIF-data weren't forged. According to Google-images the only other URL where it is hosted in full resolution is http://img.readtiger.com/wkp/en/Douglas_Devananda.jpg, which is undated.(linked at http://kamistad.net/pic-11/kanthi-lanka.html) I am posting it here (instead of directly undeleting it), to allow for other opinions. --Túrelio (talk) 16:53, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion. I looked into this earlier and came to the same conclusion as Túrelio. http://img.readtiger.com/wkp/en/Douglas_Devananda.jpg has a file timestamp on the server of 2013-10-07 (verified using wget). http://readtiger.com is a (copyright violating) Wikipedia mirror; hence the /wkp/en/ part of the address.

Tengo los derechos de todas mis imágenes[edit]

File:Alfileres-de-Novia-2014-Perla-Cristal-Sevilla.jpg Distinguidos señores,

Mi nombre es Yolanda de la Rubia Mellado y soy la titular de la marca española AURORA DIAZ con numéro de marca M2937553 , de manera que tengo los derechos de las imagénes que he subido a su galería. Cualquier persona puede usar las imágenes siempre y cuando no se modifiquen, pues los alfileres que aparecen en ellas están registrados en marcas y patentes y es imprescindible que eso se sepa para evitar nuevos casos de plagio que ya hemos sufrido con anterioridad.

Por ello ruego vuelvan a permitir que mis imágenes estén disponibles en su galería para que cualquier persona pueda hacer uso de ellas.

Saludos Cordiales,

First, "las imágenes siempre y cuando no se modifiquen" is an ND license, and is not permitted on Commons.
Second, the source site has a clear copyright statement "todos los derechos reservados" so we would need a license in order the keep the image on Commons. The image has the same warning as a watermark.
Third, the image is a clear violation of COM:ADVERT, so it cannot be kept in any case.
I have also deleted File:Alfileres-de-Boda-Plata- Cristal-Sevilla-2014-.jpg for the same reasons. The uploader has had two images deleted previously for the same reasons by Magog. I suggest that she should not upload any more images unless she removes the advertising material and provides a license.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Neither of these has been deleted yet, but they should be.
The first comes from http://www.armada.cl/prontus_armada/site/artic/20090709/pags/20090709170237.html. Your image description says "Downloaded from internet". Please understand that most images on the Internet are under copyright and do not have licenses which allow their use on Commons. That is certainly the case with this one.
The second comes from http://www.zonamilitar.com.ar/foros/threads/noticias-de-la-armada-de-chile.14325/page-47, where it is credited to Nicolás García. You yourself say above that it comes from a family archive, but in the image description you said that you were the photographer ("own work"). Unless you can explain how it has three different authors, and get a free license from the real one, it cannot be kept.

Files in Category:Images using filenames with Facebook photo identities[edit]

For a background on these mass deletions, please refer to Commons:Village_pump#Uploads_from_Facebook_needing_attention. I am requesting these for undeletion as they appear to have been deleted based on an apparent misunderstanding of Facebook terms, rather than for any specified individual copyright violations. The deletions were made using VFC with the blanket comment "Facebook files, which means they are copyrighted by facebook. This is complete bollocks as regards copyright release, but unfortunately binding."

The purpose of creating the category Images using filenames with Facebook photo identities was for a suitable review to take place and moves or deletions as appropriate depending on the sources, uploader, description or any identified copyright violation. This mass deletion by-passed that intended review and is not supported by policy or speedy deletion guidelines. Past examples of file names matched in this way as containing Facebook photo identities, have been correctly improved with copyright confirmed, some are used on other projects such as en.wp, and some are part of well recognized projects such as WLM. The deleting admin has been approached in the linked VP discussion, on IRC today, and a notification of this request is now on their user talk page. -- (talk) 18:33, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

    • I do not understand your comment, many of these will have been uploaded by the original photographer. A CC-BY licence or similar would be fine and of course a move to a more meaningful filename. As stated in the undel request this is the point of Faebot tracking down these images and putting them in a handy backlog category. The deleting admin has already apologized on the Village pump for deleting these by mistake. -- (talk) 21:26, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
    • If that is true for some of them, they should be individually tagged as such and normal procedures be followed, but this deletion ignored that some may have license statements near the photo etc. darkweasel94 22:36, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Stefan4. I agree with Darkweasel94 on the Facebook terms (You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook...); but the problem here is how we can ensure the uploader here (the Commons user) is same as the Facebook user. If both are same, there is no need to upload from a Facebook download. A few people in Facebook use "high quality" option in Facebook upload, and any filename here contains a "Facebook photo identity" can be a copyvio unless otherwise proved. Facebook prohibits users from posting content that violates another party's intellectual property rights. But unfortunately, it contains more copyvios than any other similar sites. Recently I saw File:Lime Butterfly Papilio demoleus.jpg there claiming copyright by another Facebook user and reported to Muhammad Mahdi Karim and the Facebook group hosted it. JKadavoor Jee 03:18, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
    • I am surprised that this undeletion request is even controversial. A Facebook image can, just like images from anywhere else, come with a license notice releasing it under a free license. If some of these images do not come with one or there are other problems, a "no permission" tag will certainly be appropriate, but we should give the uploaders a chance to fix that (through OTRS). This deletion was based on a wrong assumption, as the deleting admin has already said. darkweasel94 07:17, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Sava Damjanov.jpg [edit]

Why was this deleted? It's a private, uncommercial photograph made by my friend whose permission to upload I have. What seems to be the problem?--Izviiskra (talk) 21:14, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

The reason it was deleted because it appears here. So it looks like it was copied from that website - and thus it was deleted as a copyright violation. You can find out more at Commons:Project scope/Precautionary principle, Commons:Project scope/Evidence, and Commons:Deletion requests. Royalbroil 22:44, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
The fact that a private picture was on some journalist site was unknown to me until now. I repeat, this is a private, and non-commercial picture, it's even featured on a personal FB page of the writer in that picture. What must I do to upload the picture to WikiCommons? How is it my fault that someone took my picture and uploaded it on the internet before I did?--Izviiskra (talk) 23:28, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Carly Simon - 1970s.jpg[edit]

A deletion was requested due to a date discrepancy. A new search and a revised license should have taken care of it. However, it was deleted without explanation. When I asked the deleting editor to give the reason, they said it was because the backside of the photo was not shown. So that creates some questions:

  • Can a deleting editor simply delete an image for a reason unrelated to the original DR?
  • If so, should they be required to at least state their personal rationale?
  • Is the editor's rationale reasonable, since the front of the publicity photo had the imprinted name of the record label, which is where any notice would naturally be placed? Which, of course, ignores the fact that publicity photos were traditionally not copyrighted. --Light show (talk) 21:16, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
    • This was deleted because of the missing backside to verify your usual bogus claims of no notice. Expect all your images to be deleted if they don't show the backside. Too many of your "free" images were deleted because of begus claims, most of them under your old name Wikiwatcher 1. --Denniss (talk) --Denniss (talk) 22:52, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The deletion requestor's admittedly paltry rationale was implicitly a concern of the license lacking substantiation. To call it a "date discrepancy" is a mischaracterization and ignores the genuine issue. The revised license of {{PD-US-1989}} requires demonstration of publication without a copyright notice. The uploader did not provide that substantiation. Thus this was not deleted for a “reason unrelated to the original DR”; it was deleted because the original license was demonstrated to be bogus (implicitly acknowledged by the uploader’s attempt to change it) with no alternative evidence for PD status being presented. Denniss should have articulated a reason, but COM:UD is not the venue for that discussion. Эlcobbola talk 16:26, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose No evidence presented to substantiate PD claim. It's not as though similar issues haven't been raised, over and over, with this editor's uploads; they've been put fully and clearly on notice. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (talk) 17:36, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment: If there is some new copyright guideline that no longer accepts a copyright search as "evidence," can someone please provide it. Otherwise, all of the same criteria explained for BBWs last DR would relate to this one also. --Light show (talk) 19:11, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
Too many of your "unsuccessful" copyright searches were successful by other users to prove your claims as wrong. That's why I and possibly some other admins count your claims as non-trustable unless you provide uncropped scans of front and back of an image (for no notice). Changing no notice to not registered/renewed after questioning the initial claims do not help either. --Denniss (talk) 19:27, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
Note that publicity photos after they are received by newspaper are simply filed away, to be used when some story needs it. That's why for this photo the tagging editor found three newspapers using the same photo for different articles and for different years, 1978 and 1984. The only other time an editor used the general term "untrustworthy" was when they blitz-tagged 44 and later 18 more publicity photos because they simply didn't agree with U.S. copyright law about publicity photos traditionally not being copyrighted. And I don't recall any publicity photos being found to have a copyright notice on the back and therefore removed. With a description and authorship printed on the front, like typical agency photos as this one, it goes against the Precautionary Principle to make that a requirement. --Light show (talk) 20:23, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
I'll also mention that for publicity photos without printed authorship on the front, I've simply contacted the seller to describe what's on the back, and if there's anything printed there to add it to their listing. They usually do that very quickly. --Light show (talk) 21:23, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
I just obtained a collection of older original publicity photos, and this one is included. The back is totally blank. I'll probably scan and upload some others for articles that need better images. Almost all are blank on the reverse, with a few having some number scribbles or handwritten name of the person. Should I also upload the reverse side if they're totally blank? If they're post 1977 I'll be checking for copyright registration in any case, which only takes a few minutes.
They're almost all music related, mostly pre-1980, of individuals and groups. So that brings up another question, about whether British groups or singers must be left off the list of possible uploads if the record label on the front is for a British record company. There are some with American labels, such as Warner Bros, and I'm not sure if those are OK. --Light show (talk) 20:32, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Yann, I'm sorry, but I think you are mistaken. I put the two -- the deleted Commons image and the Flickr image cited in the first line above -- one above the other in a paint program, with the buildings at the same size and compared them. I can safely say that the two were taken at the same time of day -- the shadows match -- and from the same point -- a wide variety of building A obscuring building B confirms that. The deleted image is significantly cropped from the Flickr image, the colors and contrast have been modified, and it has been upsampled by about a third, but it's clear to me that they were taken from the same place at the same time. It is certainly possible that there were two different photographers there together, but I think that goes beyond our standard of "significant doubt". That makes the deleted image a legal DW which should be restored. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:01, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Bench monument on Latin Bridge, Sarajevo.jpg [edit]

This bench is built in 1914. See deletion request here. --Smooth_O (talk) 15:04, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi, you have to provide the year of death of the sculptor and the rationale, why it is in the public domain, supported by a reliable source. Otherwise, there is significant possibility that the author was still alive 70 years ago, which means that the image can't be hosted here. --Eleassar (t/p) 15:38, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agreed. A sculptor who built a bench in 1914 could easily have lived past 1943. Generally, if we don't know when the creator died a work must be older than about 1885 for us to assume that it is PD. This applies in countries where the rule is 70 years pma (most of the world) and is different elsewhere, including the United States. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:10, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, but open a new DR immediately thereafter. I think this is close enough to the line of COM:TOO and/or COM:UA to be examined more closely. I don't say or necessarily believe the first closure was wrong, merely that this seems to be enough of a borderline case as to warrant extended discussion (the DR was closed without comment beyond the nomination). The scope of Bosnia and Herzegovina law is "intellectual creation in the domain of literature, science and art," and I'm not entirely convinced this is art in the spirit of that scope. It may or may not be. Эlcobbola talk 21:17, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is customary to interpret "literature, science and art" in a very wide sense (here is a link for Slovenia, I don't believe this is differently in BiH, as the copyright in the two countries stems from the same tradition). Until the uploader proves that the depicted object doesn't qualify as art or that the sculptor died more than 70 years ago, I don't see any reason to undelete this file. --Eleassar (t/p) 21:27, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Reinhart Medaille 1.jpg[edit]

User:Túrelio deleted on Nov. 17th more than 100 files. He didn't check proberly all the subjects. So he deleted without any discussion or check the file mentioned above. He himself says, the file might be / could be / is perhaps an copyright violation ( [1 ] - german ), but he does not know and he hasn't checked it. The file should be imediately restore, and perhaps - if necessary - the copyright issue should be discussed and solved. --Hofphotograph (talk) 18:40, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

This picture is a derived work of a medal which is eligible for copyright. In your description you state nothing about the copyright status of the depicted medal. It would be your duty as the uploader to prove that it is in the public domain or, if it is not yet in the public domain, to organize a permission by the copyright holder via OTRS. We cannot restore it without this information or the documented permission. On further research the photo appears to depict the obverse side of this medal which was granted for the first time in 1989. Hence, this appears to be still copyrighted. --AFBorchert (talk) 20:02, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Take a look at the file, please. I AM NOT the UPLOADER. --Hofphotograph (talk) 21:17, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
I see - that's hard after Túrelios precipitate action ... --Hofphotograph (talk) 21:22, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
But you are asking for undeletion. This requires a documented permission through OTRS. You should start by researching the name of the artist. All this was not mentioned in the file's description. Basically, the description just stated that the photograph was taken by the uploader. --AFBorchert (talk) 22:42, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agreed. It is not up to Túrelio to prove that the medal is copyrighted -- it is up to the uploader to show beyond a significant doubt that it is either PD or properly licensed, neither of which was even mentioned in this file description. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:45, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
That's ok. But: Why has Túrelio the right to delete the file
* without asking the uploader for the missing data
* without discussion
* without giving the community any chance to solve the issue - if there is one?
Túrelio deleted the file in a set of more than a hundered files in only one day - and he claims, that he has checked each of this files properly. May be, that there is an issue on the file. But I do not think, that the issue couldn't be solved. So restore the file and start an appropriate process to get the right license. --Hofphotograph (talk) 21:17, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
The file was more than 2 years part of commons.
Now, there are no 2 months time to check the license, but Túrelio deleted the file in 2 minutes ...
--Hofphotograph (talk) 21:44, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Túrelio is an elected administrator and has thereby the trust of the community to handle speedy deletion requests. The request was notified on the talk page of the uploader. And Túrelio's speedy deletion was appropriate as this was an obvious derived work without any permission. We have to speedy delete a significant number of copyvios every day (c. 2000). If we don't do this, we get buried by copyvios and we can be grateful that we have admins like Túrelio who go through the speedy deletions nearly every day. --AFBorchert (talk) 22:42, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

File:Negrita.svg [edit]

Why this icon was deleted?

I trust in good faith, to the end, you decide not to recover that icon. I'll ask to delete all my icons, a sample list that below

A full list in User talk:Jameslwoodward --Wilfredor (talk) 15:23, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

As the person who proposed this file for deletion, i want to say that now having reviewed his other self created files, i believe his work is of high quality, and obviously doesnt need to be deleted en masse. This one file, since it would be highly unlikely to be used in an article (we have historic images that would work for any article related to the image), and also highly unlikely to be used in a Wiki project, due to its being a stereotype (or cartoon figure), and most projects would not use such an image to represent themselves, was thus proposed for deletion. I think i have stepped on their toes, and i would like to apologize to Wilfredor for having assumed even the slightest poor intent on their part for uploading it. These impersonal internet relationships can so easily become anxiety provoking, even with the best of intentions.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 23:00, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much, you're a good person. I have no absolute truth, so I just asked for a clarification. I hope you have a nice day :) --Wilfredor (talk) 02:42, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
I was the closing Admin in this case. In closing it, I used our formal policy at Commons:Scope#Examples:
"Examples of files that are not realistically useful for an educational purpose: [and therefore should be deleted]... Artwork created by the uploader without obvious educational use".
We routinely delete personal art by non-notable artists. This image is unused personal art that will be offensive to a significant number of our users. While we certainly must keep many offensive images, including historical images on this subject, I see no reason to break our rule against personal art to keep this one.
The three images which Wilfedor cites above are in use and therefore irrelevant to this discussion. Also irrelevant are several wonderful images of his, including File:Wrist_and_hand_deeper_palmar_dissection-en.svg, which we are lucky to have. More to the point are a wide variety of unused personal images he has uploaded, including some that are apparently copyvios. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:58, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Would be nice if another admin could carefully review this matter. You're very good in diverte the topic of conversation. You not only in that, you're also good in presuming bad faith and accusing me of placing my name as author of an image that were not mine (then you retracted it), yet, not content with this, you threatened to delete my future works in commons, cataloging of "not encyclopedic". Appearances can be deceiving, you are a good example of the excessive application of rules and a bad example of careless maintenance. Administrator need to be able to act objectively and not by emotional or hormonal outbursts. As I have said in her page repeatedly, I invite you to take a break. On the other hand, I invite another administrator to be objective and open-minded and study the case of the image and also James' conduct, since he not only did not handled the situation, but also used of premeditation and abused his "power" when he used of intimidation towards a user instead of supporting and help. This is a call to conscience to all admins who want to make this a better place and support the knowledge, morality and colaboration. --Wilfredor (talk) 17:15, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Wilfredor, personally, I would not have deleted this file, but Jim and the nominator have some pertinent arguments. Please stay civil, and wait for input from others. Yann (talk) 17:32, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks --Wilfredor (talk) 18:04, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I am inclined to grant the undelete request, based upon there being some misunderstanding between the DR nominator and Wilfredor, and also because there is potentially scope for the image -- if one is wanting an icon of such a thing, then Wilfredor's image would suffice for such a purpose -- we should remember that we are merely a repository and we allow others to decide what they wish to use -- we really shouldn't be making judgements for or against use on this project. russavia (talk) 01:57, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
    • I think that if restored, the file should be renamed to avoid any misunderstanding. Yann (talk) 10:03, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Not making any comments about the picture; but unhappy with the way Wilfredor responded to it, especially to the closing admin and the nominator by making a bunch of pointy DRs. Glad to see he understand his mistake and expressed a friendly note after that. JKadavoor Jee 02:55, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Again -- historical images of this type are offensive to many, but we keep them for the very reason that they are part of our history. I don't see, however, why we should break our rule against keeping personal art for this offensive image. We don't need to delete it just because it is offensive -- we need to delete it because it is personal art and we should not be creating the precedent of keeping such works when we routinely delete them every day. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:16, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

The icon is part of a well known stereotype, that has nothing to do with racism. Typing "negra" (spanish word) in google, the first page show a big quantity of images in the same "racial stereotype". "Negra" is a loving way to call a person in spanish. It's what I do with my grandmother and my father, both "negros".The icon itself is worthless to me. The icon problem is irrelevant, watching your reaction. You are a disrespectful and you do not deserve to be a administrator. It is very unfortunate, I feel very sad that such things happen in the project --Wilfredor (talk) 20:51, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Wilfredor, if the image were to be undeleted, would you provided a detailed description in at least Spanish on the file page? This would surely give the image context, and perhaps make others less opposed to the image being on Commons. russavia (talk) 08:01, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Sure. Thanks --Wilfredor (talk) 21:17, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm nominating the sevensigns above for undeletion. It seems that the discussions were rushed and not always consistent. Let me refer you to these discussions:

Thanks! Evrik (talk) 21:27, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

The discussion seemed to boil down to whether or not a sign can be copyrighted. Some users made the argument that signs are meant to signal and can't be copyrighted. This is silly. What if I use a piece of magnificent art to signal where my art shop is? Signs qualify the same as any other art like a painting. The images are deleted so I can't tell but plain text signs can be PD due to not enough originality, so that may apply. Another user made the argument to keep them because not using the rationale above would open up the path to many signs on Commons to have to be reviewed. That's fine. You never hear the police not work because there are too many crimes. Ramaksoud2000 (talk) 21:56, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Procedural close. IMO this is a rather disorganized mass UDR pertaining to unrelated images (i.e. each depicts a different subject), that really should be examined individually. That said:

  • I will restore File:Napa Valley CA Photo D Ramey Logan 01.jpg, which was speedily deleted, for a DR upon request.
  • Any of the other file(s) in this request should be individually listed for undeletion (so we can have a discussion about a specific individual file, and only that file).

File:Fairwater Wisconsin Welcome Sign.jpg and other community welcome signs[edit]

File:Fairwater Wisconsin Welcome Sign.jpg
File:Elk Rapids Michigan Welcome Sign.jpg
File:WisconsinRapidsSign.jpg
User:Fastily speedy deleted these files using the derivative rationale on Nov 12th. The topic of derivatives on road signs was discussed at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Pinemere sign.jpg back in May. These signs are almost entirely basic shapes and fonts. Any artwork on these signs are de minimis. It's not artwork or a sculpture - it's just a sign marking a location. It's not a photograph of any minimal artwork on the sign. If consensus decides that these signs should be deleted, then so should almost everything under Category:Welcome signs in the United States. Royalbroil 01:41, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Done for the first two per COM:DM. I'm not too sure about the swan in File:WisconsinRapidsSign.jpg, so a few more opinions would be nice. -FASTILY 01:58, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Why should any of these welcome signs to be deleted under speedy criteria? I suggest a full deletion discussion next time instead of a unilateral admin discretion. Each sign is different and the community should be doing the interpreting. Royalbroil 02:11, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Let me tell you something about how things work here: if a file violates our policies (e.g. COM:FOP/COM:DW), we delete it. What you're suggesting is process for the sake of process, and that is an incredibly foolish notion. I also note you haven't done very much administrative work on Commons, so your dismissive demeanor and lack of regard for our rules is hardly surprising. -FASTILY 05:39, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm suggesting a more cautious approach instead of a unilateral discussion in marginal cases. Per speedy, the images need to be "clearly inappropriate" and a "clear copyvio". What is clearly wrong to you isn't necessary clearly wrong in my opinion. Speedy shouldn't be used in cases that aren't clear to everyone. That's what regular deletion exists for. There are LOT of FOP / DW images that are appropriately deleted via speedy. And I have deleted some of them. Royalbroil 13:11, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Hidden Wiki is not associated with USA or any other country. That's a hidden service running in whole Internet, so it applies rather to COM:NETCOPYRIGHT. --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:58, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
I recognize that the Internet can make questions like "where was it first published" difficult -- particularly if the image was simultaneously uploaded to servers in several countries by a stealthy organization, but the question "what country's TOO applies here" has an answer, even if we do not know it. You have cited COM:NETCOPYRIGHT twice, but it argues against restoring this image -- it points out that all Internet images have a copyright (unless ineligible because they are too simple) and that we cannot keep images unless they are licensed. I do think there are countries, including the UK, where this might be over the TOO. In many others it would not. So "where was it first published" is a necessary question and unless we can get a good answer, COM:PRP requires that it remain deleted. .     Jim . . . .

See: Commons:Deletion requests/Files of User:AmoussouWilfreed

This DR was closed with the rationale that these were «Out of scope». Yet this deletion reduced in 50% the amount of media items we had on Category:Animism in Benin, it left us without any media related to students in Category:Education in Benin, and it left the Category:Roads in Benin without any media at all.

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Ultra7[edit]

Closing admin Jameslwoodward deleted these photos "per P 199", whose only rationale for deletion was that these were "failed, blurry photos". Restoration is in order here because frankly this was not remotely a policy based reason - per COM:SCOPE, "poor" or "mediocre" photos can be retained if they contain something "educationally distinct to the collection of images we already hold covering the same subject". Looking at the images, it was plainly obvious that, despite the low quality, these images were sufficient to show details that are simply not present in anything else on the site currently or in the images that were wrongly claimed by Rod to be adequate replacements, as I outlined in my post of 13:29, 8 October 2013. Commons is not a repository of 'high quality' photography where usability is a secondary issue, it is a collection of educationally useful free media - if this deletion is not reversed, then it makes a mockery of that basic idea, and makes me question whether it's worth my time to continue to upload images here. Ultra7 (talk) 12:30, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per the very section of COM:SCOPE you paraphrase. Files that are not realistically useful include those "that add nothing educationally distinct to the collection of images we already hold covering the same subject, especially if they are of poor or mediocre quality." To say that these images were "educationally distinct" from the images we still hold (e.g., 1 and 2) seems disingenuous, or to think rather poorly of the intellect of our readership. That these "irreplaceable" images were not even used in the en.wiki article (the only non-Commons article of which I'm aware) also seems rather telling. Эlcobbola talk 15:26, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Why is it disingenuous to state the obvious - those supposedly replacement images did not show a number of details that were in the deleted images - I documented them in detail at the DR. What seems disingenuous to me is to claim that any old image of a tunnel is a replacement for any other, whether it's from the same angle or shows the same aspects of it or not. As for it not being used in Wikipedia - so what? There is nothing in COM:SCOPE that says the sole purpose of Commons is to illustrate Wikipedia - and the vast majority of files here are not used in any Wikipedia, so that's obviously an irrelevant reason to oppose this undeletion. There are a number of sites out there that seek to visually document this unique Metro system - it's those sort of media users you should be thinking of when I say that these images were irreplaceable. You're frankly insulting their intellect by pretending that to them, any old image of a specific tunnel is replaceable by any other. The fact is, thanks to this misguided deletion, the only place you can now get those visual details is from non-free sources. That's failing Commons basic mission - and if you only care about Wikipedia, well, if someone wanted to illustrate the construction method of these tunnels - they are now screwed - even though these image were perfectly usable for that purpose. Ultra7 (talk) 16:02, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Nowhere have I claimed "the sole purpose of Commons is to illustrate Wikipedia" or that "[I] only care about Wikipedia". I said their non-use seems telling; indeed, if these images were genuinely useful, one might expect a sister project with a related article to use them. Use in articles is thus an objective factor we can use to gauge usefulness, not the only one or the most important one. That is your fabrication and misunderstanding. Disingenuous, further, is claiming "the only place you can now get those visual details is from non-free sources" and that potential users are "screwed" when both of these images are still available on Flickr, their original source, with free licenses. Эlcobbola talk 16:22, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
That's an objective measure is it? Of course not. Unless 'Metropedia' is the next Wikimedia project that's going to be launched and I've never heard about it. It's no measure at all. The only way you can argue these images are not usable, is by addressing their content - something you seem to be deliberately avoiding. Why? Do you even know what the images are actually showing beyond the basic fact it's a tunnel? Can't you even for a second put yourself in the position of someone who would be looking for a free image of the specific details I outlined in the DR? Details that are, whether you realise it or not, not in the claimed alternate images. And yes, they can still be sourced from Flickr - and so can a whole lot of other images - but you know as well as I do that providing educational images is not the primary purpose of Flickr. And in this case particularly - they were not that easy to find on Flickr at all. But fine, if you want to send out the message that Commons is not the only place you should look if you want educational free images on things like the historical construction and fittings of Metro systems, I'm sure that will help the future prospects of Commons no end. If you want Commons to be just one of many photo hosting sites, just one of many free image sources, then it will eventually fail, because there are better alternatives to it in both those sectors. Commons is the only media site whose sole purpose is the organised curation of educational free content, and the fact is, deletions like this completely undermine that goal. Ultra7 (talk) 17:21, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
  • For the benefit of non-admins, here is the better one of the two images that were deleted. It really is beyond a joke that P 199 can get away with describing an image with even that level of detail despite the blurring as "unusable garbage", or others can get away with claiming that the details in that image are also visible in this or this image. These are not issues of subjective judgement, those two claims are quite clearly simply just wrong. Images are being deleted on Commons based on false claims like this, images that are irreplaceable, with absolutely no policy justification. Ultra7 (talk) 17:54, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

    Эlcobbola is mistaken. Regarding "educationally distinct to the collection of images we already hold", here are the indisputable facts: The images we do have of this station categorically do not show the rail mounting, they do not show the tunnel wall geometry, they do not show the overhead wires, and various other details too. Commons has ABSOLUTELY no other images of those details, and it is IMPOSSIBLE to replicate that image today because it has since been refurbished. Whatever Эlcobbola based their view on, it clearly isn't the actual images. Ultra7 (talk) 14:22, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
    [Clarifying further as requested on my talk page.] I've looked at the actual images, and while they aren't identical to the other images we have, I see nothing educationally distinct about them. Given their poor quality (as assessed not only by me, but also by !voters in the DR), I think the DR closure was correct.

    It should be noted that Rodhullandemu ended his participation in that DR after just one post on the actual issue at hand, with the comment "I've gone as far as I wish to go in this discussion" - claiming that the supposed replacement images satisfy the same purpose as the deleted images. As such, despite the fact that this would theoretically be part of a consensus building process which an admin would then be able to weigh, I wasn't able to question him further on what that supposed purpose was - whether he merely thought the purpose of these image is to just prove that the station actually has tunnels in some crappy sub-standard Wikipedia article, or whether potential re-users could be people interested in the various elements that are only actually visible in the images he insists should be deleted, that I've detailed extensively and repeatedly. Personally, I seriously doubt the admin weighed any 'consensus' here - not only because there was a complete lack of any actual discussion to be able to do so (ie the addressing and rebutting of each others points) - on his talk page he has all but admitted that he was just super-voting here based on his subjective opinion that because you can't see the precise method of rail fixing, it's not usable (and apparently I am very priveleged to have been able to get even that explanation, as he is ever so busy, so busy he is now exercising his 5th amendment rights over this issue).

Eh, no Zimbabwan law should apply here...?--Antemister (talk) 22:44, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
I don't think so, but I would be interested to have you say more on the subject. I think that we follow the law in place at the time and place the image was created or first published. (I'm glossing over all of the technicalities involved, and the choice of whether creation or publishing counts because I don't think they matter here). If the nation makes a change that is explicitly retroactive, then we use that. But in case where the nation changes -- either because borders move or because of de-colonization, then I think we stick with the law in place at the beginning. I recall (but can't find) several pre-1948 Israeli cases that followed British law.
However, that may be moot. I found the Zimbabwe Copyright Act at http://www.wipo.int/wipolex/en/text.jsp?file_id=130487. For photographs, the rule is fifty years from first publication, which still leaves it up to you to prove the image was published before 1/1/1963. However, there's more. The Act is quite explicit (at section 6) that it does not apply unless the work was first published in Zimbabwe, or the author was a "qualified person" -- a citizen or resident of Zimbabwe. Since Zimbabwe did not exist until at least 1965 and arguably until 1980, I don't think Zimbabwe law can apply. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:17, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Article 6 suggests that Zimbabwe wouldn't protect foreign works at all, but there must be some other place somewhere which tells that foreign works are protected, considering that Zimbabwe has signed the Berne Convention and the TRIPS Agreement. The Swedish law says something similar: it says that the law applies to Swedish works, but then goes on by saying that foreign works may be protected due to various treaties. Protection of foreign works is instead described in detail in a separate document: sv:Internationell upphovsrättsförordning.
The question is possibly whether Zimbabwe counts as the legal heir of the British dominion of Southern Rhodesia. We accept {{PD-India}} for files from British India. However, USA might claim that works from the w:Government-General of Chosen are covered by a bilateral treaty with "Japanese possessions in Korea" (see w:Bilateral copyright agreements of the United States). This area is a bit unclear. --Stefan4 (talk) 02:25, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

File:LSU Tigers Shield.jpg[edit]

The LSU shield is actually a photo from a stadium which should be acceptable. If not, I want to point out other examples of similar photos that will have to be deleted since they're exactly the same. I don't want someone breaking wikirules. I found this photo of Michigan Stadium: File:BigHouseSign.JPG. It is obviously a picture of a copyrighted logo from a photo of a stadium. Please remove this from all wikimedia. Thanks for your due diligence. I will definitely let you know if I find other like violations so they can also quickly be deleted. If this is not a violation, please add photo back to wikimedia. spatms (User talk:spatms) 12:48, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

The logo in File:BigHouseSign.JPG is very simple and is acceptable under {{PD-textlogo}}. The shield design is more complex and has probably a copyright. I think ther are two possibilities to include this on Commons: 1. get a permission from the copyright holder of the shield; 2. Find out that this design was first published before 1977 without a proper copyright mention (unlikely, but who knows). Otherwise, the image could be transfered on the English Wikipedia under a fair use rationale. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:29, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Obvious and trivial case of basic geometry and text. The admin reasoning that they can not reproduce the shape is ridiculous, I can't personally hand-draw a circle without it looking all wonky but that doesn't mean a circle isn't basic geometry. Fry1989 eh? 20:56, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but the shape in question isn't a circle -- it's a half circle with a filleted rectangle and a long tail. The logo is certainly right on the line of ToO.

Update: A negligent editor deleted it without bothering to read what it actually said.

He even copy-and-pasted the exact phrase that I wrote, "All rights reversed.", into the justification for deleting it. Unless he can make a case that the phrase "All rights reversed" has the same meaning as the phrase "All rights reserved", or that the term "Copyleft (L)" is copyrighted, then please undelete the image.

The deletion of this file can not be justified:

  • Text of national anthem is in public domain (author died in 1849)
  • Melody is in public domain as an official work published in the official gazzete and a free-reproduction is guaranteed by the Act Regulating national symbols of the Republic of Slovenia
  • Audio recording rights: {{MORS}}
  • Performers rights: Military orcestra is a governmental institution and their works are free (similar rules apply as for {{PD-USGov-Military-Army}}

However, anthemn should be used in accordance with Act Regulating national symbols of the Republic of Slovenia, which basiclly states one should not use official symbols in hate speech, etc. An external opinion by a proffesional lawyer (I forwarded it to OTRS) confirms that copyright law goes above this act. Situation is similar with files in this category, which are fine.

Industrial building. No copyright. Yann (talk) 11:50, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Industrial buildings are copyrighted just as any other. Per [17] (pg. 63/64): "The term 'architectural work' applies to the whole spectrum of intellectual creations; from residential buildings, museums and industrial structures to bridges, parks and entire parts of cities (i.e. works from the fields of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture)." --Eleassar (t/p) 12:18, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm hearing this for the first time.

Your first example is a mall, so not an industrial building. And the second is IMO a mistake. It should not have been deleted. I include them in this request. In all legislations, architecture is protected as "work of art". But these are NOT works of art, just technical designs. Yann (talk) 13:16, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

But your arguments there are wrong. If you don't have the time to find valid arguments to justify your requests, don't create them in the first place. You waste MY time.

Yann (talk) 14:19, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Per Yann, above:

"In all legislations, architecture is protected as "work of art"."

That is not correct. Architecture, in all of the copyright laws I have read (perhaps two dozen), is covered separately from "works of art" as "architecture". In the United States, architecture was not covered at all until 1990, although architectural drawings were. Until then you could freely build a copy of a Frank Lloyd Wright house as long as you didn't use his drawings. I have not seen any case law that suggests that there is a ToO for architecture anywhere.

I also note that the Slovenian law gives architecture more emphasis than most -- it has a separate paragraph, while in most other countries, it is just one word in a list with painting, sculpture, etc:

"Article 5 (2)9. works of architecture such as sketches, plans, and built structures in the field of architecture, urban planning, and landscape architecture"

which I infer means that the Slovenian lawmakers want architecture to be better protected than in other countries. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 16:24, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

User who requested deletion stated "The Lupin III author Monkey Punch is still alive and the copyright is in effect." as the reason.

In general, yes, although de minimis will apply in some cases. While there is much about copyright law that defies common sense, this is actually straightforward -- the graphics of Lupin and Pokemon have a copyright, just as those of Mickey Mouse do, and any photograph, drawing, painting, or other copy of them will infringe on that copyright.

File:Borivoje Grbic.jpg[edit]

The image was deleted with the argument that there is a full size version in Flickr marked All Rights Reserved. However, the author himself seems to have willingly released this particular image with a CC-3 license on this website - http://upps-sajt.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1332&Itemid=2 . I can't read Serbian, but from the Google translation seems to be a legit directory of writers and authors where they put their profile for contact and promotional issues. In that case, I believe it should be restored.--- Darwin Ahoy! 22:13, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't see where the site says profiles are author-submitted. You might be referring to "Autor Студио С.О.К.О." (Author: Studio S.O.K.O) at the top but, looking at the other profiles from numerous firms suggests that that field is populated by the studio by which a given person is employed. Non-offical authorship is supported by the credit ("Tekst: Studio S.O.K.O. / Vikipedija. Fotografija: Borivoje Grbić / Studio S.O.K.O. ") which implies the content was merely lifted from the Wikipedia site, image included. This image needs an OTRS ticket to be retained. Эlcobbola talk 16:15, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't believe the image was "lifted from Wikipedia". It was on the site with that license already before it was uploaded to Commons using the same license. My opinion is that the whole operation seems to be legit and with the writer participation or knowledge. However, I would understand the doubts and need for an OTRS.--- Darwin Ahoy! 16:38, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
