This image includes the work of a living artist, which is till copyrighted ad therefore needs a separate permission from the artist. In addition, there relation of the Flickr account with photographer is unclear to me. --Túrelio (talk) 09:16, 5 May 2012 (UTC)


Hi Gazebo, could you explain why you added this template to my photographs? I do not understand how it can apply. -- (talk) 11:09, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

The photos to which the tag was added appeared to show artwork and/or sculptures. Photographs of copyrighted artwork that are taken in the UK are noninfringing in the UK under UK FOP (freedom of panorama) but could be non-free in the US because FOP in the US does not extend to artwork or sculptures. From what one understands, the current Commons policy is to allow photos of copyrighted artwork if FOP applies to artwork in the country where the photo was taken; the {{Not-free-US-FOP}} tag is intended for indicating that such photos might be non-free in the US and that the situation might change in the future. For photos in which all the depicted artwork/sculptures are out of copyright and the {{FOP-UK}} tag was added due to architectural works in the photo, it could be useful to add a clarifying note to the page for the photo; in such a case, it would not be a problem to remove the {{Not-free-US-FOP}} tag. --Gazebo (talk) 11:52, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
I have just checked over the (old) RFC. If future real case law established that there is anything to worry about, then we can use the existing FoP categories to analyse which photographs we would need to review or mark up to comply with any new legal requirements. There are many, many possible future bizarre changes in US law that just might happen, adding templates warning that they might happen does not seem particularly helpful. I would prefer it if you did not blanket add this template to my uploads, particularly as I have added over 250,000 images to Commons and I doubt you are going to do this systematically or correctly handle all the fringe cases. -- (talk) 12:54, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Is there a reason why you aren't adding templates explaining whether or not New Zealand, Canadian, South African, and Pakistani law applies? Why especially US law on non-US images? --GRuban (talk) 16:14, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Löschung von Firecrackers-Fotos[edit]

Hallo, Ich bin mit dieser Aktion vollkommen nicht einverstanden und bitte, dass die Diskussion darum hier fortgesetzt wird, um zu kären was hier los ist. Danke, --Max schwalbe (talk) 18:53, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Derivative works[edit]

No opposition to your deletion requests of my photos, but I really don't get what derivative works' policies applied here mean. Commons:Derivative works really doesn't help. For example, if I take a photo of Times Square and it contains several logos of trademarks, or if I take a photo of a public park/playground with a tiny model of Mickey Mouse in it, am I allowed to upload them to Commons and license them with a free license?

This is to avoid copyright violations in my future uploads (as I have a pile of photos in my computer and want to contribute them here, not counting those transferred from Flickr). Quenhitran (talk) 06:47, 19 July 2014 (UTC) Please reply on my talk page
