David Dewhurst image[edit]

Brian, I'm one of those somewhat-inept wikipedia editors who enjoys editing and updating pages (I'm interested mostly in politics) who is not particularly skilled with the internets. Could you help me out with the David Dewhurst image? It's not a copyright violation, but I think that I've probably put the image in incorrectly. Could you point me to a resource or how-to guide explaining the right way to do it? I'd like to learn how (mostly for future reference).

Thanks.Jonschr (talk) 05:31, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi there. Are you sure the image isn't a copyright violation? Images cannot usually be uploaded with simple permission specifically for the Wikimedia Commons. How have you obtained permission for this image? If you have email or written proof, please read Requesting copyright permision and Commons:OTRS, and follow the steps to provide evidence to the OTRS volunteers here at the Wikimedia Commons. The key here is that the copyright owner of the image must specifically agree to release the image under a free license. This includes use of the image for commercial purposes. I'll be happy to help you in any way possible if needed. Thanks. Brianreading (talk) 09:32, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Issue with University of Houston images[edit]

I've been looking through Category:University of Houston and discovered a number of really great historical photos from the University of Houston Libraries that are apparently PD. Here's the problem: the library websites declare that the images are PD, but there's no Commons confirmation of that permission statement. Here's the solution: paste this in the image files.

{{attribution|University of Houston Libraries}}{{LicenseReview}}

Here's an example:Shasta III.jpg

Otherwise, they are liable to get tagged with NPD, like I did a few of them. Or, once the source URLs are broken, NPD again.--GrapedApe (talk) 04:49, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

I wasn't aware that every single image posted under PD needed to be reviewed by Wikimedia Commons. The source confirms that this image is in the public domain. One can ascertain as you have that the image is in the public domain without the need for the resources of administrators. If I'm incorrect in my thinking, can you point me to policy?
