The Brisons sunset4.jpg No longer contributing here
I have lost all interest in contributing to the Wikimedia Foundation projects; I find that the time and effort required of me to deliver and ensure the existence of quality work here fail to come close to my valuation of other things in life (family and career). I might rediscover the enthusiasm to participate in the distant future but not now... 12:47, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

It was an attempt at reproducing the logo. It's not the straight up logo stolen from some website. I created it in the Paint program, but whatever, go ahead and delete it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Conman33 (talk • contribs) 18:55, 18 November 2008 (UTC) (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi Jappalang,

I wanted to comment on your note about copyright. I am writing an article about a casual game company and I wanted to upload a couple of screenshots of their games. I am the company's employee and all the screenshots are available at their site.

That's why I don't consider myself violating the copyright.

Thanks, Dashakob (talk) 09:05, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Jappalang,

I have sent a permission letter to upload the images to wikipedia commons. I am ready to delete the images while waiting for your decision. Please kindly inform me how I should proceed.

Thanks, Dashakob (talk) 11:50, 24 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi Jappalang,

I guess I'll just wait for the decision of the Commons on my issue, as I failed to access the files that I have already uploaded. The images that I was about to upload can be easily accessed from the developer's website, so I don't really think that copyright may be an issue.

Checking on this OTRS[edit]

Hi Stifle. I wish to confirm if this OTRS https://secure.wikimedia.org/otrs/index.pl?Action=AgentTicketZoom&TicketID=1360068 is supposed to be for such a large range of images. On Wikipedia, and on Commons.

After some digging, I am rightly worried that some of the uploads might be copyvios. Refer to Commons:Deletion_requests/Series by Nyo and Commons:Deletion requests/Series by Nyo II, where the uploader expressed worry that his uploads could have been copyvios. I would like to point out that the OTRS covers several pictures in Category:Laozi, which are copyvios from the book The Lao Zi in the Eye of a Painter] (File:Laozi reading.PNG, File:Laozi meditating.PNG are just two examples). I am proceeding to tag the obviosu copyvios in this category, but worry over those attributed to Lavelk from photobucket and uploaded by User:Nyo. Jappalang (talk) 13:42, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Note: there is some consternation that User:Nyo is Lavelk at Commons:Deletion requests/China images. Jappalang (talk) 14:11, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

OTRS:1360068 says that everything at http://s94.photobucket.com/albums/l98/Lavelk/ is released under CC-BY-2.0. However, there is nothing either in that ticket about where he got the images or whether he has the capacity to release them under that license. There's an AN/A thread from earlier this month that may provide further help. I've got nothing else for you on it though. Stifle (talk) 16:02, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
By requesting the deletion/discussion at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/User_problems#User:Nyo:_copyright_violations I was not aware of your efforts to solve this. However i would like to inform you. --Martin H. (talk) 13:42, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
Hi, I "kind-of-recently-stumbled" over one of Nyo's uploads (disliked to have a look on more of them) and would also like to know where his uploads might come from. That they very probably are scans from some book (or "borrowed" from www ?) would not matter if the originals are "PD-Art". I just can't read ANY Chinese ;]]] for trying to verify ;) Best, [w.] 15:00, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Image:General Fan Hanjie.jpg[edit]

Hi, as you obviously speak/read "some" zh, maybe you could help on thisone. There is an uploader beginning to "turn mad" about this DR, created a while ago by user:Cecil, which however might be unjustified (regarding actual facts [imo]. The uploader, on the other hand, did not provide an acceptable license, up to now [and send some evidence]): There might just be a problem of communication. Being zh~"-99" I could not do but advise to look for someone who fairly understands both languages ;)

I just noticed that the image is used in the edit-protected zh article on this man. Can't check other possible usage at this time, the toolserver being down.

I think you might be able clarify "at little expense". [w.] 09:20, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Milad[edit]

This is not a canvassing message. Since you have some contact with this person's images, you may have some pertinent information to add here. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:27, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Just a note on the Crassus image you placed on DR. It is from Livius.org which has a 'unique' policy on copyright for Wikipedia. See this [1] I think they mean the 'Attribution' to http:www.livius.org code. So...maybe it can be kept? Just an idea --Leoboudv (talk) 01:32, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
On a personal note, I was upset that I followed the rules and personally contacted flickr owners to license their images copyright free for certain WP articles while Milad came in with copyvios. With kind Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 03:12, 4 January 2009 (UTC)


Another copyvio?[edit]

It looks like this is another copy vio: File:Ptolemy I Soter - bust.jpg The source is livius and it is probably taken from a book or museum according to this [2] Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:36, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

File:Buddhist temple in Qibao, China.PNG[edit]

ORTS is not important here. Image is realeased on flickr as CC by, co it's licence is ok. Most (if not all) of pictures of this author are ok. --Sfu (talk) 21:20, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Indeed you are right. But there is no need to deletion request IMO. Someone must just correct the information page. --Sfu (talk) 22:03, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
Right. I must go to bed at last ... cheers ;) --Sfu (talk) 22:21, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

Update: Milad's images have now been all been deleted.

  • Question: what do you think of this DR here: [3] I feel it is not a derivate work since the author did not take a picture of the map which is probably important for several WP articles. But you may be an expert here. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 21:45, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Question on your message to MHarrsch[edit]

I notice you sent a message to MHarrsch about this catalogue: [4] She is a very busy person in real life and travels a lot...and may not check her Commons account for months. Personally, I don't know how anyone can OTRS an entire catalogue of images. Can you type out a brief OTRS message regarding this catalogue? Or is this acceptable:

  • "I, Peter d'Aprix, hereby release these George_S._Stuart_Gallery_of_Historical_Figures images under an Attribution Creative Commons Share-Alike license so that they may be used by Wikipedia and anyone else for commercial and non-commercial use, with no restrictions." Peter would have to send this message from his E-mail account to MHarrsch's E-mail account and then Mary would forward the message to "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org" along with the link to the category Is that how OTRS works?
If not could you please type out a better and clearer OTRS message for these images? (I say a generic 'Attribution Creative Commons Share-Alike license' since some of her images are under the older version 2.5 and some are under version 3.0 of this license) For instance, should a date (January XX, 2009) be mentioned, too? I can send her a flickr mail then concerning your message. If you don't, I am certain you are going to get her 101 images deleted and really piss off an important contributor who has thousands of invaluable images on her flickr account (1200 alone from the Met)...once she notices her images here are missing. I just got her to kindly place her image here of a bust on a cc by sa 2.0 license:
  • File:Bust of Constantius II (Mary Harrsch).jpg I've had other people tell me on flickr mail that they would never license an image freely for a WP article because their experience here was a disaster. I hope you can consider my request. I never use OTRS: it is way too cumbersome for me. A separate OTRS message for 101 separate images is not acceptable. But if one can OTRS an entire category of images than this is more reasonable. I can then send a message to Mary. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 11:06, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

This image[edit]

Can you 'deal' with this image with an experienced Admin: [5] I am not an expert with complicated copyright issues. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 07:19, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Premier Rutherford.jpg[edit]

I have closed this as keep, per the other members of the community who have commented here, and per the reasonable assumption that the material was published sometime in the 50 year period from its creation to the PD barrier. I understand this may be somewhat irregular, but common sense and informed judgement can often be useful and even necessary in situations such as this, especially given the likelihood of the image's publication. - Anonymous DissidentTalk 14:09, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello Jappalang,

You have deleted my warship scale model pictures from wikipedia commons. I have built, painted, and photographed those models by myself.

Guillaume Jacquet is my brother (we have different fathers). I know it would be necessary to send an OTRS authorization, and we are going to take charge of it quickly. Okki (talk) 10:44, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey Jappalang[edit]

I checked the Village Pump, and the one guy who has commented thus far thinks that the rubbing picture is ok and classifes as PD-art. So, what to think?--PericlesofAthens (talk) 00:29, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't know anything about that forum; all I know is that I'm staring at Ann Paludan's book Chronicle of the Chinese Emperors (1998) right now, and it says (with a caption underneath) that that portrait is one of Emperor Guangwu. I would trust a published source by a credible sinologist over any internet forum on any day of my entire life. Sorry. Unless we find another published book that says otherwise, that portrait is 99.99% likely to be Guangwu, not Zhao.--PericlesofAthens (talk) 18:11, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
And speaking of which, using Paludan's book, I have confirmed that this portrait is not one of Emperor Guangwu, but is Emperor Wen! Whoever uploaded these images may not have been at fault since they were merely following what the online sources said, but whoever identified these portraits to begin with (i.e. the persons posting info on those online sites) made eggregious mistakes on who these portraits are supposed to represent.--PericlesofAthens (talk) 19:45, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
I have no idea; that's just the caption she provides for those particular pictures. However, she does show other paintings by Yan Liben and cites the National Palace Museum of Beijing as her source, such as on page 91 for Emperor Taizong of Tang recieving a Tibetan diplomat. On page 87 she shows a portrait of Emperor Yang of Sui, one of the Thirteen Emperors portrayed by Yan Liben, and cites the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston as her source. On page 82 she shows Yan Liben's portrait of Emperor Wen of Sui, notes that it was part of the Thirteen Emperor's scroll, and cites the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston as her source. The same goes for Chen Hou Zhu and Chen Xuandi on page 77, again citing the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She then shows Yan Liben's portraits of Liu Bei, Cao Pi, and Sun Quan on page 63, again citing the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. So she at least cites her sources and can be trusted.--PericlesofAthens (talk) 01:11, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Hi, I saw you uploaded a higher resolution for these two images http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Han_Guangwu_Di.jpg
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:HanZhaoDiLiuFuling.jpg

Can you upload the same kind of resolution for the other images in the Thirteen Emperors Scroll page, because the new version uploaded by a user named Πrate is of really dark resolution and might be difficult to see based on its quality. That would be greatly appreciated if you can improve on the image's resolutions and qualities. Thanks!--HéctorTabaré (talk) 03:40, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

I saw you've already uploaded new versions for the images of Emperor Wen of Wei (187–226) and Emperor Da of Eastern Wu (182–252). It looks definitely brighter and more detailed. Could you do the same for the rest: Emperor Zhaolie of Shu Han (162–223), Emperor Wu of Jin (236–290), Emperor Wen of Chen (522–566), Emperor Xuan of Chen (530–582)? It'll look inconsistent if there are such contrasting differences in the brightness of all these images. Thanks!--HéctorTabaré (talk) 07:02, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

File:Bill ponsford stance.jpg[edit]

This image was taken in Australia in January 1930 (when Ponsford was in en:Brisbane[6]) and published much earlier than 1961, see here. -- Mattinbgn/talk 07:01, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

What is the "magic date" I need to find for an earlier publication? I don't like my chances but I will have a hunt around. It is extremely unlikely that the photo was"kept in some storeroom or box until it appeared in Pollard's book" and is much more likely that the image was published shortly after but it seems the burden of proof is on Wikimedia. I must admit the thicket of rules regarding acceptable images here escapes me entirely. I am sure you are correct but I find it strange that even though we know where and when an image was taken, that has no impact on the copyright status of the image. Thanks, Mattinbgn/talk 07:46, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. One last question, if you don't mind. Is there a flowchart or decision-tree or some algorithm that I can use when trying to determine the copyright status of photographs somewhere. I like to think I am reasonably literate but I can't make head nor tail of the written explanations given here on Commons. Many thanks for assistance to date. -- Mattinbgn/talk 01:41, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

File talk:YAMATO Moder.JPG[edit]

呉市海事歴史科学館で撮影した画像であります。日本国の著作権法では商標権登録をなされていない立体物である場合。たとえばオリジナルに準じた模型ないし銅像または建築物などを撮影した画像に関しては保護されておらず、フリーに使用できる。実際に日本語版では人物の銅像をアップした画像が多い。また元になったオリジナルの戦艦大和は1945年にアメリカ合衆国航空隊の攻撃によって喪失しており、その10分の1も精巧な模型である為、創造性のあるものではない。よって著作権侵害という申立ては遺憾である。実際に私が撮影したものであり、また日本では珍しい収蔵品の撮影が自由に許可されている博物館の展示物であり、許可をとらずに無断に撮影したものではなく、法的に問題がある画像ではない。--Carpkazu (talk) 17:10, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

公式には、造船所で22m級の船として建造されたものであり、一種の復元船です。プラモデルと同じように扱ってはもらいたくないです。一種の記念碑です。あなたがいわれるところは、プラモデルのようにオリジナルとは細部が違う以上、著作権が生じるといわれますが、日本の知的所有権では立体物の場合商標登録をしていなければ保護の対象になりませんし、あなたがいわれるような事態は生じません。それまでして大和を沈めたいのですか、あなたは?--Carpkazu (talk) 17:13, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Jappalang!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Category:Padmé Amidala's costumes[edit]

Hi! Big thanks for yours tiredless work. Btw.: Please notice that Category:Padmé Amidala's costumes you created some time ago consist of work of arts that are copyrighted. These costume are oryginal works by Lucas Arts. They are not the cospalay, nor the costuming examples done by funs (that are alowed here and we mark they with the costume template). So in my opinion these all photos should be deleted... Regards Electron <Talk?> 16:29, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

OK. If you read this discussion you should know that I took part in it. Also I am one of the authors of the costume template (exactly the author of it's Polish section). So I know the problem. It was Request for input in discussion regarding cosplay and derived works. Not about copyrighted costumes made by Lucas Arts that photos were taken during temporary exposition. So you can make a costume that looks like the costume from SW, take a photo with it and it is OK but you can't do this with official made costume done by Lucas Arts. It is obvious difference.

Box cover art for Sega games[edit]

Hi Stifle, seeing as you have attached the OTRS #3887907 for File:Bpboxfront.jpg (Beggar Prince),[7] I figure I might pose this question to you. The same user, User:CMA Death Adder, has uploaded File:Wkboxfront.jpg (w:Legend of Wukong) and User:Andrew c has attached OTRS #2009070610054867 to it.[8] However, it is strange that Wkboxfront.jpg is licensed as {{Self|GFDL|Cc-by-sa-3.0-migrated}}. I presume the OTRS for both came from Super Fighter Team, since that seems to be the common ground between the two games. The GFDL/CC-by-sa license should be given by Super Fighter Team, and not by CMA Death Adder, right? Jappalang (talk) 02:32, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

The cc-by-sa appears to have been added as a license migration, but the image is not eligible for license migration as it was added after November 1st 2008. I've removed the cc-by-sa tag as a result. Does that solve your issue? Stifle (talk) 11:43, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi!

I write to you because you are listed here Commons:PD_files/reviewers#List_of_PD_reviewers.

Thanks for the 'heads up'.

Wappers[edit]

Hi Jappalang. You recently checked File:Wappers - Episodes from September Days 1830 on the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville in Brussels.JPG.

That name of the painting is not correct; one finds several variant names but I assume to have determined the most proper one, by verifying what the museum calls it, and doing a thorough search on the web (excluding wikis and copy sites): 'Episode' must certainly be singular, and "Place de l’Hôtel de Ville" (though a part of the French language name) is in English (for the painting and in general) referred to as 'Grand Place' (taken from "Grand-Place", also common for the same square in French, but in English without the dash; corresponding to the only name this square ever had in Dutch language, "Grote Markt"). I modified the data and added the name in Dutch language. The capitalisation varies between the languages. I also corrected the name of the museum, included the name of the relevant museum building because the major name has several other locations, and added the museum name in Dutch.

With such a long name, a caption under a thumbsize picture is usually shortened. Often, September Days is replaced by the more informative "Belgian Revolution" (which is not in the full name of the painting) and the location gets dropped from the name. Perhaps the file name does not matter so much then - but with an apparently very complete name, users will assume it to be the correct name, without looking at the file data... I did not upload the file, hence I can not delete and upload to a correct name. Is there a way of renaming (or copy/delete) available?
SomeHuman 2011-02-19 20:29 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply at my talk page. It will take more than what I had hoped for. I'll drop this discussion and my continuation on the painting's talk page.
SomeHuman 2011-02-20 10:30 (UTC)
Hi, Jappalang. Please, consult the the painting's talk page. You will find comprehensive material corroborating "my" file name.

Public domain review of Zodiac materials[edit]

Hi Jappalang, would you please review the public domain status of this user's contributions as well as Category:Zodiac killer in general? I believe that a well-meaning user just didn't understand the copyright laws involved. What I see are things that were published in The San Francisco Chronicle and The Vallejo Times and the images come from English Wiki User Tom Voigt's website. If the images check out otherwise, I'd like to ask Tom for his permissions if we ever get that far.

I've also started a discussion at Wikisource:Possible copyright violations#Zodiac Cipher concerning what I perceive as similar copyvios but over there, the source of the files is less clear. I appreciate your help and guidance in this matter,

Regarding your speedy nomination of File:Benjamin Britten 1945.jpg. As the template you are placing says: «Appeal: If you think that the file does not meet the criteria for speedy deletion, please explain why on its talk page and remove this tag.» Which is excatly what I did: I removed the tag and expained the rationale on the file's talk page (you did check that, right?) Right now you're just edit-warring and not engaging on either the file's talk page or mine, which is not a constructive mode of interaction.

The Babe.jpg[edit]

Hello and Greetings:

My photo of The Babe.jpg has been scheduled for deletion. I do not feel that there is any copyright infringement because the subject (Babe Ruth) is an icon in the United States and in many parts of the world. This particular photo was taken at Camden Yards Baltimore and on the spot where his family lived. There are many statues and pictures that show the swing and the relaxed stance of Babe Ruth and many other photos in category Baseball Statues on Commons. As like the other pictures in category:Baseball Statues, what makes them any different that the subject photo? There is nothing special about this statue that sets it aside from any other depiction of Babe Ruth. The primary subject, Mr Ruth, has been deceased since 1948 and over the years there has been many articles that bare his name and depiction. Mr Ruth can be considered property, not only of the United States but of the world.Michael LoCascio (talk) 02:44, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of The Babe.jpg[edit]

I read the reasons for the photo's deletion and I do see where there is a problem. Thank you for your advice in this matter. As a fairly new user, there are a lot of issues to absorb and I hope not to make that type of mistake again.Michael LoCascio (talk) 03:17, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

PD-100 template[edit]

Re: File:Final scene of Act1 of 'The Pearl Fishers' by Bizet - Gallica.jpg

The PD-100 template appears to cover all the bases, whereas the templates you added do not. It covers the United States, the country of origin (Italy in this case), as well as countries with requirement of 100-years or less. The templates you added do not cover the latter. If you believe the PD-100 template does not apply to any files at Commons, maybe that should be discussed at Template talk:PD-old-100, and maybe it should be deleted. The PD-100 template is automatically added by this upload form when "Author died more than 100 years ago" is selected. If that is incorrect, maybe the upload form should be corrected. In any case, we would need consensus for such changes. --Robert.Allen (talk) 22:10, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Does Mexico recognize a work as in the public domain 70 years after the death of the creator, if it was created in Italy? --Robert.Allen (talk) 05:13, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
The PD-100 template clearly states: "This work is in the public domain in the United States, and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 100 years or fewer." It does not state the rationale of why it is in the public domain in the United States. If that is what you are insisting on, then perhaps the template should be modified. --Robert.Allen (talk) 05:20, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi Japplang. Your views do not seem consistent with the current guideline at Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag#Works whose authors died at least 100 years ago, which reads:

Usually, works by authors who died at least 100 years ago are in the public domain in all nations, and so you can simply use {{PD-Art}} with {{PD-old-100}}:

  • {{PD-Art|PD-old-100}}

For the rare exception of unpublished and recently published works, see one of the other sections below.

Note that it says exceptions are "rare". My understanding of what you are saying is that {{PD-Art|PD-old-100}} should only be used for public domain works created in countries that have a term of 100 yrs. The guideline as currently written does not say that. I would suggest that you make a proposal to modify it on: Commons:Village pump/Copyright. --Robert.Allen (talk) 08:14, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
