Hi Jameslwoodward, thanks for keeping a watch on this. May i know the reason for deletion? This will help me to avoid similar errors in the future.--Challengethelimits (talk) 11:33, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

As it says at the Deletion Request, the signboard itself has a copyright, so that photographing it and publishing the image is very much like copying a book and then publishing it -- in both cases you are infringing on the creator's rights.
In a few countries, it is OK to photograph signboards that are on public display, but not in India. You can read more about this, and about what is permitted in India at COM:FOP. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:11, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes James, but I created (redrew) it using Adobe illustrator and tweeked the image a bit . Is that not fair enough?--223.233.71.143 14:23, 5 December 2012 (UTC)--Challengethelimits (talk) 15:22, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Maybe. First, this discussion should take place at the DR, not here.
Second, you should have said that you drew it yourself in the description.
If this is a brand new creation out of your mind, from your knowledge of the zoo, then it is OK. If, on the other hand, you drew it in Adobe Illustrator with a photograph of a zoo signboard in front of you, then it is a Derivative Work and not OK. In between those two is a gray area, but "redrew it ... and tweeked the image a bit" sounds like a DW, not original work. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:42, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Chitlapakkam.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. Thank you.

Hi, I wasn't sure about the copy vio rules pertaining to openstreetmaps. I inquired in the board and deleted myself. Thanks!--Challengethelimits (talk) 02:17, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

OpenStreetMaps are licensed under CC-BY-SA, so they are perfectly OK here provided that you use that license and credit OSM as the author. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:12, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
