Qual o suposto direito autoral que teria sido desrespeitado?

The original publication will have a copyright, and if you are not the copyright holder, then we need permission from the copyright holder to host the work (the OTRS permission requested). If that permission cannot be obtained, then we will need to remove the work as we can only host works in the public domain Commons:Copyright tags.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:50, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

File doesn't load[edit]

There is some interest on Russian Wikisource in working on Military Encyclopedia, which was published in Saint Petersburg from 1911 to 1915 (this is the 3rd edition, actually). I converted the first two volumes to djvu and loaded them (Category:Military Encyclopedia (Saint Petersburg,1911—1915)). Then I compared these files to the original pdf's and found they are worse both in text quaility and in picture. After turning on "Chunked uploads for files over 5 MB in Upload Wizard" in my preferences, I managed to upload the first volume. The second one dosn't load though, it returns me Unknown error: "unknown". On this page they say administrators may help with problems like this one, so I am asking for help. The Encyclopedia consists of 18 volumes varying from 115 to 215 Mb, alltogether 2.5 Gb. All files were published in Russian Empire and therefore are licensed {{PD-RusEmpire}}. The source of files is Russian State Library. — @VadimVMog: (talk) 02:24, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi @VadimVMog:. There are two options that I would consider for works if I faced the issue for English Wikisource. 1) Upload the PDF files, and see how they look and whether their text is suitable for transcription (it can sometimes be suitable) though the file size is the issue, and sometimes the instruction is to send the files to WMF so they can be done directly (less than ideal); or 2) Upload the PDFs to archive.org, let them be taken through the derive process, then use Tpt's toollabs:ia-upload/ tool to upload the derived djvu files. There is also a good chance that the djvu files will be under the 100MB limit. The second means is one that I use regularly.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:45, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, thank you. — VadimVMog (talk) 15:03, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

File:Brouillon1 Flappiefh.svg[edit]

Can you please describe what it is that you want done with the file File:Brouillon1 Flappiefh.svg. It looks a complete hotchpotch of files, and if the components are needed, then it may be worth saving the files, and uploading with appropriate {{information}} and licence information, then deleting that file.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:00, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, this is a draft for some of my previously published works. I shall delete it. How can proceed? --90.3.41.44 13:26, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
@Flappiefh, 90.3.41.44: If none of the components are required. Then please put {{delete|test components of files, no longer required, contributor request}} from your user account, and we can process it. If it occurs that way, we can speedy it, rather than have a deletion request.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:16, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
