Your question: why is this being deleted? its from flickr. and i checked their license and its right.

I checked the licence on flickr too. It is very very strong supposed, that the flickr user is not the author of the poster and the tour photos, so the flickr user violated copyright by licencing the images with creative commons, and thats not accepted on commons. --Martin H. (talk) 02:24, 24 August 2008 (UTC)


Oh I see. but for future, how am i suppose to know? i just look for pictures on flickr, is there a way to know if they violate copyright? Emptyhanded (talk) 02:34, 24 August 2008 (UTC)Emptyhanded

No, you cant be sure, only a few cases are very obviously. --Martin H. (talk) 02:37, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello Emptyhanded,

You have uploaded several images that are copyright violations and you have done so despite our requests not to do so, and despite our instructions. If you do not stop uploading pictures that are not free, your account will be blocked. See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons. Please leave me a message if you have further questions.   — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 02:21, 24 August 2008 (UTC)


File:WhitneyliveatWangCenter1999.jpg[edit]

Critically evaluate Flickr licenses File:WhitneyliveatWangCenter1999.jpg has been marked as a copyright violation. You may have preserved the information shown on Flickr correctly when transferring the image here, but the Flickr uploader is not the copyright holder of this image. Either the image was created by someone else, or it is a derivative of someone else's work. As stated in Commons:Licensing, only the copyright holder may issue a license, so the one shown on Flickr is invalid.

Always remember to critically evaluate Flickr licenses. Photostreams with professional-looking photographs, album covers, posters, and images in a wide range of styles or quality taken by many different cameras often indicate that the Flickr uploader either does not understand or does not care about copyright matters.
