Welcome to WikiProject Permission requests!


We are volunteers dedicated to the task of requesting permission from copyright holders for their works to be used under a license compatible with Commons. See also Commons:OTRS.

To maximize gain, we concentrate on outstanding works that are not yet available under a free license, but for which there is a good chance that the author might relicense them when being told about our project.


If you know of any such works, please post a message here containing, at the very least:

  • A hyperlink to the work
  • The name of the author, along with his contact information (email)
  • Why you think that the work is exceptional
  • Why you think that the author might relicense it
  • Your signature


Better yet, join the permission requests team! This is totally informal and requires no special skills. If you are wondering how to write a convincing permission request e-mail, this page might help you.

File:Brick s.JPG[edit]

This is a message initally written by me on COM:VP Teofilo (talk) 08:37, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

We have E-mail receiving volunteers at COM:OTRS but do we have E-mail writing volunteers ?

Writing E-mails is not something I enjoy doing, so I would be glad if someone could send an E-mail to artist user:Maccallum and explain what he can do to increase the probability that his file is kept. The best would be to confirm that the picture was taken at the Southampton bargate or to provide a different photo from the Bargate exhibition, so that the picture would be in scope as a piece of information about the Bargate, leaving open the question about the in-scope-ness of an artwork from an artist who has no Wikipedia article yet. A confirmation of the exact title of the artwork ("Brick s" ?) would not be bad either. Or provide a picture for en:Artparks Sculpture Park where an artist with the same name is mentioned.

Dear [Comatmebro],

Thank you for your call yesterday. You have the Human Rights Foundation's permission to use the new logo to update the Wikipedia entry about our organization.

Is this sufficient permission to change the photo, and, if so, how do I go about properly updating the photo? I apologize if this is the wrong platform to ask this question - I am having trouble comprehending the rules and regulations for uploading photos to wikipedia, but would really appreciate some help!Comatmebro (talk) 22:47, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
