Himna

Well, le čevlje sodi naj Kopitar. Mail bom posredoval, ampak najprem me zanima kaj je razlika med himno in kulturno dediščino, ki se jo tudi ne sme uporabljati v komericialne namene, pa se vseeno pojavlja na Zbirki. Sam si enkrat napisal, da se na Zbirki upostevajo izkljucno zakoni iz domene avtorskega prava in ne dodatne omejitve postavljene z drugimi predpisi. Pišem ti pa tu, ker je razprava na zahtevku za izbris že tako ali tako precej nepregledna postala, ta tvoja pripomba o zakonu o drzavnih simbolih pa je se bolj tangencialna. --Miha (talk) 22:40, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Request for assessment

Hi Eleassar, I would like to ask you if could review: File:Serbs 30 collage 1.jpg? It appears to consist of a number of tentative license claims. One of the source images has even been removed but is still displayed in the collage. Praxis Icosahedron (talk) 00:53, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked for a duration of 1 month

{{Blocked}} You have been warned several times that useless DRs are not appropriate.Yann (talk) 15:27, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

I think you should also block me from breathing the air. Can you do this? Regards, --Eleassar (t/p) 15:47, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Several years ago, I was blocked in the Croatian Wikipedia for 6 months just because I created a redirect from Trdinov vrh to Sveta Gera. This is the same case: political games, pov pushing, disregard for the quality of the project. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:08, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
See Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/Blocks_and_protections#Block_review. As far as I'm concerned, this is a terrible block. Эlcobbola talk 16:16, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I've also informed Jameslwoodward as an experienced administrator about the case. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:17, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support block This user has made it clear here and here that they have little interest following community consensus. This has made them an overall harm to the project. Hopefully after a month block and time to consider they can return and be involved more constructively. James Heilman, MD (talk) 03:36, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
This block has nothing to do with this X-ray image (which you have been obsessing about and has been kept only because the uploader provided an appropriate permission, otherwise it would be deemed unfree), but has everything to do with how Yann acts in this project. Ever since this review of his actions he has been putting a spanner in the works: closing reasonabe DRs (see the comment by Jim) after less than an hour instead of seven days, and in general misinterpreting the copyright status of images. Now he blocked me for a month for no good reason, just because he lost his nerve. He has been asked by User:Sven Manguard to stay away from me, but has not listened to him, because he takes this personal and doesn't understand that administrators should act in a disinterested way. I'm disappointed that this project lets Yann act like this, not listening to advice by experienced administrators, taking revenge on individual editors and bullying them. You may expect me to post a review of his decisions after these three days (or a month if this should be so). He has already been warned in the past (besides the link above, also here). --Eleassar (t/p) 07:03, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
It has to do with your behavior which includes that displaced during the X-ray image discussion and your refusal to abide by consensus. James Heilman, MD (talk) 11:55, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
The rationale given is "Creating numerous senseless DRs after several warnings," without any evidence of this (in the form of diffs) and with several experienced administrators disagreeing that the DRs were senseless.[1] --Eleassar (t/p) 12:39, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Ad Savin : this has already been discussed here. I've already explained that I have never reopened any case solely with the words "the deletion was wrong". I reopen them when the rationale is disputed, and I clearly state why it is disputed. It's not wrong to reopen cases when the rationale is disputed (see the discussion here). --Eleassar (t/p) 12:27, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Ad Sporti:[2] "there were potentially 100s of free images deleted."...The presumption of innocence is a generally accepted standard in the world. Evidently not with you, in spite of the available evidence showing that the DRs have been mostly correct. This reminds me of the witch-hunt. I'd also like to see the evidence for "intentionally burry". The assumption of good faith does not seem to be one of your preferred guidelines. --Eleassar (t/p) 13:43, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Eleassar, I've unblocked you per the discussion at COM:AN/B#Block review. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 06:42, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you a lot. I really appreciate that the community recognised the block was an unjust and wrong decision by a personally motivated administrator that should not have happened if there are some values in this project. All's well that ends well. --Eleassar (t/p) 06:55, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support block The amounts of DRs and FOP requests are huge, some having the most ridiculous and frivolous arguments. Take a look at this one Commons:Deletion requests/File:Biserica de lemn din Apatiu (2).JPG. All this activity is incredibly disruptive for many editors and articles, and many times succeeds in delete images which shouldn't be. --Codrin.B (talk) 09:10, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
If people collect diffs we can head back to the admin noticeboard again. James Heilman, MD (talk) 20:16, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Photo deletion

I am wondering why you have requested to have my Miami Holocaust memorial photos deleted?

Because they are reproductions of a copyrighted sculptural work and there is no freedom of panorama in the United States for them; see Commons:FOP#United States. Thus they're copyright violations and therefore not in the scope of the project. --Eleassar (t/p) 23:51, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Obnašanje

Mislim, da si svojo priložnost za sofizme zamudil. Ampak, saj naslednje bojo kmalu. --Miha (talk) 16:13, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Imaš mogoče kakšno dobro fotografijo jablane? Sem danes opazil, da nimamo še nobene fotografije jablane iz Slovenije ... --Eleassar (t/p) 20:09, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Haha, zdaj si me pa nasmejal. Ne žal nimam, pa bi prav rade volje bi naložil, lahko pa ustvariš kategorijo cvetovi breskev v Sloveniji :) Himna je ze nekaj drugega kot jablana, ki je pač posod bolj ali manj enaka. --Miha (talk) 20:14, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Pravzaprav mislim, da nekaj iz domačega travnika celo imam, vendar ni na prenosnem disku. --Miha (talk) 20:17, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

File:Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2013...

Hi Eleassar, you haved tagged some files of User:Christopher Schwarzkopf (WMDE)] today with "no permission".

You are completly right with these files:

I have explained the uploader the background of the needed permission per email. I know him, he is staff member of Wikimedia Deutschland, organizator of the Wikimedia Diversity Conference.

But for these files I see no copyrighted material:

Only a group of keywords, typically written down after a conference session slot. The threshold of originality‎ is not given here in my eyes. Therefore I have removed the "no permission" tag.

Hopefully my view and explanation is OK for you too :-) Raymond 16:10, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I was not completely sure about these files, so hoped that someone will come along and review this. Thank you for the review. I think this is correct now. --Eleassar (t/p) 19:44, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks

Hi, thanks for pointing out that there's no FOP in Ethiopia, and so some pics might need to get deleted. Just FYI, there was not such note when I uploaded some of them, AFAIK. Best, --Elitre (talk) 11:34, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Mozambique copyright law

Hello Eleassar, I would like to know what makes you so certain that colonial works of architecture are not exempt from that policy. You said: (cf. Art. 3, c, d). Well, look at what c) says: "works published in Mozambique or works first published abroad and issued in Mozambique". Mozambique as a country only exists after 1975 or so, everything published there before that date, works of architecture included, was published in Portugal. Portugal is the country of origin of those works. But I wouldn't object to Mozambican protection if the law was worded in a way such as "works of architecture existent in Mozambique". But no, they chose the word "erected in" (same in Portuguese). Those works were not erected in Mozambique.--- Darwin Ahoy! 00:26, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello, since the DR was hastily closed and we had not the opportunity to discuss this properly, I opened a case for undeletion here. If you could participate on the discussion I would appreciate.--- Darwin Ahoy! 04:00, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Poststamps of Belarus

Because stamps are the exception in Belarusian copyright law and are considered public domain, I ask you to no more requesting of delete of them.--Хомелка (talk) 13:18, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

In my opinion, this is a similar case as Commons:Deletion requests/File:Stamps of the United Nations, 2010-Slovenia.jpg‎. An institution or a government can make its work pd, but can't give reproductions of third-party works to the public domain. See also for example this article (provided by Stefan4) about how a sculptor successfully sued the post in the United States due to the appearance of one of his sculptures on a stamp. --Eleassar (t/p) 13:34, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
It is only your opinion. No consensus on this. If you want, broached, and while he was not engaged in, please amateur. And I call on the conversation if he will not forget--Хомелка (talk) 13:44, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
So your opinion is that the decision about currency images in Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Bayterek was wrong? The stamp issue seems to be similar to that one. Which Belarusian deletion request are you talking about? --Stefan4 (talk) 21:08, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

File tagging File:MotorHeadLemiBelgradeLive.jpg

I don't understand, this is own work. --Дарко Максимовић (talk) 12:24, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

This file has been ascribed to a third party (a photographer whose name differs from yours) at its description page and there is no evidence that the photograph would be your own work. For it to be kept, we need an OTRS-confirmed permission by the photographer. --Eleassar (t/p) 11:11, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

File:Baile Felix - George Enescu.jpg

Warum diese Datei gelöscht wurde. Ich verstehe nicht. Zwiadowca 21 19:23, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Es gibt keine Panoramafreiheit in Rumänien. Da das Werk war von ein Bildhauer der stirbt weniger als 70 Jahre zuvor gemacht, es ist noch immer urheberrechtlich geschützt. --Eleassar (t/p) 23:20, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

hello! would you be so kind to add the category:Ukrainian FOP cases in such cases? it is kind of important, and it is kind of impossible to monitor all the deletion requests... --アンタナナ 08:47, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Two deleted images

Dear Eleassar,

You put up two images that I had taken for deletion: File:Thor statue.JPG and File:Freyja statue1.JPG and I would kindly ask you to undelete them. I have been in contact with the museum and the images are enhanced copies of old Viking chess figures. The museum owns the rights of the artworks and they have, after an explanation what this would mean, said that they are willing to send a formal OTRS email if that is needed, but I hope I don't have to waste their and my time with that :-). Best, Jopparn (talk) 02:17, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I can't (only administrators can). Try contacting the closing administrator or post a request for undeletion at COM:UDR. Regards, --Eleassar (t/p) 08:21, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:China gift to the UN.JPG

Can u further elaborate why did u delete this image? It wasn't from a museum, it was from the UN HQ in NYC. Mr. Kate (talk) 10:57, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

As the United Nations headquarters are located in the United States, the US law applies. There is no FOP for modern statues in the United States. --Eleassar (t/p) 10:54, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Raven Banner Image

I refer to the deletion of the raven banner last year.

This affected me indirectly because I had, in good faith, used the raven symbol for my blog logo. When I saw that the commons deleted what I took to be in the public domain, I consequently also removed my own logo which used that as (my own) derivative work.

I wish to be on the right side of the law, and would ask you (since you were the initiative taker in removing the aforesaid images) whether what I have done is a) 100% legitimate as I believe, and b) whether the raven image I myself have produced can be considered "free".

As I explain on my blog page http://yorkshireviking.cqd.nu/the-logo-returns/ I took the image that this commons still has of the coin (in the public domain), printed it out on to paper (which I have kept), and then traced the image on to a transparent piece of paper (which I have also kept). Then from the tracing I scanned my raven, and superimposed it on to the other elements of the logo I wished to have on my blog. As an extra precaution against confusion with the American flag product (the derivative work I believe you alluded to) I reversed the direction of my bird's flight.

So, I have now returned my logo, which I am assuming really IS mine as a derivative work, using the an image that demonstrably IS in the public domain?

Would my raven image (not the logo) be of interest to you here, and is it your opinion that I am now OK with my own derivative work logo? When the commons removed the first image, I removed as said my own to be on the safe side.

I am a new user of this wiki, and have only signed up so that I could contact you. I do appreciate your advice on this matter.

In my opinion, it is ok. You may wish to consult the deleting administrator too. --Eleassar (t/p) 19:57, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Gornja Radgona

Hallo Eleassar, ich habe noch für jeden einzelnen Kopf des Denkmals File:Gornja Radgona 7040.JPG ein Foto. ISt das erlaubt hochzuladen oder wird das wieder gelöscht? Diese würden sicher in Commons:Wiki Loves Public Art fallen. --gruß K@rl (talk) 11:41, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Hallo, Karl. Ich denke die Köpfe in dieses Foto sind dunkel genug dass die individuele Details des Denkmals sind nich erkennbare und also es ist ok für Commons. Es tut mir viel leid für die Löschunge, aber es gibt keine Panoramafreiheit in Slowenien und Sie wissen dass wir können nur freie Datei erhalten. Aber viele Danke fur alle diese Bilder des Gornja Radgona. Gruß, --Eleassar (t/p) 11:56, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Eleassar, danke für die Antwort, aber meine Frage war, ob ich Fotos der Köpfe im Detail hochladen darf?. Aber ich werde ein Beispiel hochladen, dann können wir über dieses sprechen. --gruß K@rl (talk) 12:20, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Something is wrong

Hello Eleassar, recently you have proposed a file File:Lord Shiva.jpg for deletion. But your reasons were unclear you have stated that the file is non free. Now tell me how can you claim that it is non free. You haven't even provided a link to verify that it is non free. I have seen similar cases on your talk page above. I think you are nominating files randomly without proper research. Now I'm not a steward that I can warn you. But I'm requesting you not to nominate files like this. It is good to see that you are working against copyright issues but nominating files cluelessly is not a good idea. So, I request you to restore the file to normal without telling me to take this matter at COM:UDR. Thank you. Jim Cartar (talk) 12:36, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of the ecclesiastical coats of arms

Hello Eleassar!

Los escudos de armas que usted marcó para ser eliminados, contienen elementos de diseño genérico, como una estrella o una cruz. Los elementos externos, como el sombrero y las borlas, son de diseño propio. Pudo haber hablado con migo antes de marcar mis escudos, hubiera resuelto cualquier duda.

Some of the individual elements may be generic, but the overall combination is certainly not. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:14, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi Eleassar, so if you think your in your right, please ask for the deletation of Pope Francis CoA (on commons), who presents exactly the same problems. For Bishops, ask them if you want, but generally when you speak with them, they are really happy of the rendition and of the work we do on they CoA. Mathieu C. (talk) 06:19, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Per Commons:Coats of arms, the overall combination (composition) follows the blazon, it is precisely that which remains PD. Lemmens, Tom (talk) 08:03, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure such a blason was ever published (any ref for this claim?) and also don't think all the elements are generic enough to be uncopyrightable. --Eleassar (t/p) 08:19, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
This also means that a Coat of Arms inspired from another (found on the net), with the same composition, but with a different interpretation, is not a "derivative work". This was written by administrator Micheletb. The elements are quite common heraldic charges. Now, if you think that Micheletb's view is incorrect, this really needs to be taken to the Village pump or a similar discussion space, as these kinds of recreations are a widespread and established practice. Lemmens, Tom (talk) 08:36, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Now you have to argue that it's a "different interpretation"... In my opinion, the coats of arms are so much similar to each other that it is hardly. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:14, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
SajoR took the composition, and filled it in with elements and external ornaments of his own design. Compare araldicavaticana with File:Coat of arms of Franc Rode.svg, for example. You could argue that he took the diagonal lining from araldicavaticana, but that doesn't pass the threshold of originality (and it is a highly standardised concept of heraldry). Everything else is clearly a different interpretation and style. I could (given the time, which I do not have) make a highly stylised art deco interpretation of this coat of arms, but if I deviate from the composition, it is no longer correct. Lemmens, Tom (talk) 09:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok. --Eleassar (t/p) 09:35, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Coat of arms of Monaco

As you are professionnal investigator and shower of violation of copyright, please can you treat this Coat of arms of Monaco.svg, clearly copyright violation of this one : version official of the prince and violation of the law of the principality of Monaco : article number 716 :

Loi n. 716 du 18/12/1961 tendant à assurer la protection d'armoiries, emblèmes, devises ou insignes officiels Article 1er .- ( Loi n° 951 du 19 avril 1974 )

Nul ne peut faire usage des armoiries, emblème, devise, insigne ou sceau du Prince s'il ne s'est muni au préalable d'une autorisation délivrée par l'autorité compétente.

La même interdiction s'applique à la reproduction, en vue d'un usage public dans un intérêt commercial, des armoiries, devises, emblèmes, insignes ou sceaux de l'État ou d'un État étranger, d'une institution publique d'un État ou d'une organisation internationale gouvernementale ou non gouvernementale dont la protection est assurée soit par la voie d'une réglementation particulière à Monaco ou dans le pays du siège, soit en vertu d'une convention internationale.

Article 2 .- ( Loi n° 1.062 du 28 juin 1983 )

Les infractions à la présente loi seront punies d'un emprisonnement de un mois à six mois et de l'amende prévue au chiffre 2 de l'article 26 du Code pénal ou de l'une de ces deux peines seulement.

Le jugement de condamnation ordonnera la suppression des armoiries, emblèmes, devises, insignes, sceaux ou signes reproduits contrairement aux dispositions de l'article premier ci-dessus et, s'il y a lieu, la confiscation des objets sur lesquels ils figurent.

Article 3 .- La présente loi sera applicable dans les six premiers mois qui suivront sa promulgation.

Good luck to prove that not a copyright violation! So please can you ask for a quick deletation, I ask you because I'm not familiar with this kind of procedure. And I not really speak a good english, that's the reason I asked Tom Lemmens to explain you what you're wrong in the ecclesiastical case. Best regards Mathieu C. (talk) 15:23, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi, which act are these citations from? Is it a copyright act or an act regulating the usage of official symbols of the state? If the latter, we're only concerned about the copyright in regard to DRs; see Commons:Non-copyright restrictions. What does the copyright act of Monaco state about official works? --Eleassar (t/p) 16:00, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Suppression of pictures.

Hello, Is-it possible to have explications about the suppression of some of my pictures in Uzbekistan ? Thank you, --Paul Munhoven (talk) 07:31, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Of course. I'm not sure which ones do you have in mind, but in general the reasons are written in the relevant discussion pages. --Eleassar (t/p) 07:34, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
Good morning, I don't know where are the explications and I don't understand what do you meen. Have a good day, --Paul Munhoven (talk) 09:05, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I could help you with specific files in this regard if you listed their names. In general, though, files have been deleted as non-free due to COM:FOP#Uzbekistan. --Eleassar (t/p) 18:04, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Libya images

Hello,

Please restore the Libyan pictures which I uploaded that you deleted. The copyright law of Libya is only 50 years and the colonial period in Libya ended in 1948, hence all pictures first taken / published in Libya during the colonial period expired in 1998 or beforehand.

Hi, please take it to COM:UDR. If everything checks out, they'll be undeleted. --Eleassar (t/p) 10:58, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Special:Diff/123343313

Hi, why did you rename this image? Please always specify a criterion in the log entry! Greetings,    FDMS  4    21:46, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

The criteria per COM:MOVE were 2 and 6, to allow for easier recognition of the depicted subjects in categories. --Eleassar (t/p) 21:50, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm not going to revert you (I couldn't either), but both do not apply. "City bike" is sufficiant (not perfect) for an image of only a city bike, and criterion #6 only applies to files which are in use in templates.    FDMS  4    21:54, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
The image shows more than a city bike. It shows a specific city bike at a specific place, and 'city bike' is certainly too vague to allow for an easy identification of the place. --Eleassar (t/p) 21:55, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Still criterion #2 says (in english) that a name has to be completely meaningless, like for example File:22785u9ob807b3c4f4.jpg or File:DSC_1342.jpg. I wouldn't name an image Ljubjana (or Vienna respectively) citybike myself, but please respect the uploader's choice of name as long as no rename criterion applies. BTW, your de language skills are contradictory in the language versions of your userpage.    FDMS  4    22:03, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
It's a bit of nonsense. We get tons of images named in the pattern LjubljanaAGD34lk234'... thought not completely meaningless, they're still more or less meaningless for any serious usage (recognition of the subject, sorting etc.) Has there been any discussion about this? Thanks for the hint. --Eleassar (t/p) 22:08, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
LjubljanaAGD34lk234' could rather be considered (completely) meaningless than Ljubljansko mestno kolo.jpg, but in both cases I would recommend asking the uploader if he/she agrees with renaming certain files in a certain way (which some uploader do and some do not) because then of course criterion #1 applies. Opinions on filenames differ; while I personally prefer clean and descriptive filenames as well, some uploaders argue that reusers rather find files and identify their content via categories and thumbnails.    FDMS  4    22:32, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Based on my experience, in both cases a clear descriptive name is of significant help. In general, in most cases I do respect the naming chosen by the uploader, if it is just not too generic (an opt-out version seems better here given the large number of uploaders). --Eleassar (t/p) 22:37, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Someone accused you of "copyright paranoia", so this german thread might be of interest to you. ireas (→ not my opinion …) wrote (… but my translation): CC licenses (f. ex. CC-by-sa 3.0 de, § 4 c ii.) require providing the title of the [reused] work. If no title is explicitly stated, it is the filename. It should not get modified offhandedly.    FDMS  4    11:51, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't find this in the legal code.[4] Can you provide the exact citation? --Eleassar (t/p) 12:48, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Maybe he refers to If You Distribute, or Publicly Perform the Work or any Adaptations or Collections, You must […] provide […] the title of the Work if supplied   FDMS  4    12:56, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Are you sure this refers to file names? If so, it would prevent us from renaming any CC-licensed file uploaded directly here, and we should implement different guidelines for CC-licensed, PD-licensed, GFDL-licensed etc. files. It's totally impractical. Or at least we should add to the guideline the notice that the old file name must always be cited at the description page (which is also what I'm going to do in the future). --Eleassar (t/p) 14:46, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
It is one interpretation, but I doubt there is consensus for it.    FDMS  4    15:30, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

RfC on the scope of file renaming criterion 2

Pursuant to the closing of the RFC "Proposed overhaul of the "Which files should be renamed?" section", a second RfC has been opened at Commons:Requests for comment/File renaming criterion 2 specifically to address the scope of criterion 2, which currently reads "To change from a completely meaningless name to a name that describes what the image displays." Since you participated in the initial discussion, I am notifying you of the follow-up RfC.

Please note that I fully anticipate that the first few days will see a number of additional options proposed, so it may be a good idea to check back periodically on the RfC.

Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Delaying my files File:Odranci SLO Dreifaltigkeitskirche Richtung Osten.JPG and Westen

Dear Eleassar, you delayed my own made pictures from Odranci, please tell me why. Did I made any mistakes? Thank you for information. Kindly regards --Christian1311 (talk) 15:16, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you probably meant "deleted". The reason was that the architect of the building died after 1945, which means that the building is still copyrighted and thus can be freely photographed only for personal usage: any commercial reusage of such photos is not allowed according to the Slovene law. Here at Commons, all files must be free for any usage according to the US law and the law of the country of origin of the photographs.

Strunjanski križ

File:Beli križ pri Strunjanu.jpg ni slikana v naselju Beli križ/Croce Bianca. Na sliki je Strunjanski križ, ki se nahaja v neposredni bližini romarske cerkev Marijinega prikazovanja v Strunjanu in ne spada pod Portorož. Križ so leta 2012, ob obletnici Marijinega prikazovanja, prenovili, predvsem podstavek, zato je sedanja podoba križa drugačna od podobe na tej sliki iz 2007. Gl. tule. Zmedo pa dela tudi ime datoteke - gre le za križ bele barve in ne za ime naselja. Zato te prosim za preimenovanje in vrnitev kategorije Strunjan, v katero so že umeščene ostale slike tega križa.

I'm not sure that the architect is still alive, but he was certainly alive in 1945 and later, because these works date from later than 1944. Only works of architects who died in 1944 or before are in the public domain. --Eleassar (t/p) 10:03, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
