Thanks for uploading File:WVMain2013a.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. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Sure feel free to delete. It of course is a screenshot of WV. But no longer using it. James Heilman, MD (talk) 22:29, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Attribution of image[edit]

Dear Sir,

I would like to use your images of Aedes aegypti mosquito, available at "", in an extension-outreach publication related to pests in community environments. This publication is purely for educational purposes and has no commercial interests whatsoever.

However, the suggested attribution formats, "By Muhammad Mahdi Karim ( Facebook (Own work) [GFDL 1.2 (], via Wikimedia Commons" is very different from the style I will be following for other pictures in my publication, which will most likely be much shorter and in the format:

"Photo by Abc Defghijk", or "Photo by Abc Defghijk,".

Therefore for the sake of consistency, kindly let me know whether I may cite the images in the above formats, and if so, what name/affiliation should I use.

Thank you! Sincerely, Shaku

Shaku Nair, Ph.D. Assistant in Extension, Community IPM University of Arizona - Maricopa Ag. Center 37860 W. Smith-Enke Road Maricopa, AZ 85138-3010 Cell: (520) 840-9429 Office: (520) 374-6299

I just cropped the photo. Please contact Karim with respect to attribution. Best James Heilman, MD (talk) 00:44, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Bell's Palsy Book[edit]

Hello Dr James,

I would like to use your Bell's palsy photo in my upcoming Bell's Palsy Book.

Can you please tell me if this is ok and if so what are the requirments


You need to attribute myself an Wikipedia and technically you need to release the book under the same license. James Heilman, MD (talk) 14:26, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
The above is not accurate
  • There is no legal requirement to attribute Wikipedia (or Wikimedia) as they are neither the author nor owner of the image and so cannot be claimed to be such. However you should say where you got the image from (which is Wikimedia Commons), ideally with a URL to the image page.
  • There is absolutely no requirement to release your book under the same licence: your book can be "All rights reserved" or released under a completely different licence. Lots of commercial books legally make use of CreativeCommons-liensed images.
  • You must attribute James Heilman MD as creator of the image, ideally with a link or URL to the author's page (
  • You must choose which of the two licences (CC BY-SA 3.0, or GFDL 1.2) you are taking advantage of when publishing the image. This is an easy choice as GFDL 1.2 is really only a licence for software manuals and Wikipedia, and quite impractical for a book.
  • You must document which licence the image is used under. This is particularly necessary for "share-alike" licences like CC BY-SA because people must know they are free to copy the image from your book and use that copy under the same licence terms. So if you pick CC BY-SA 3.0, then you are required to say that the image in your book is "licensed CC BY-SA 3.0". Ideally, you should spell out the full name and URL of the licence (
  • It is good practice to say which website you got the image from (Wikimedia Commons) and provide a link back to the author's user page (
So an example credit would be
'Bells palsy' by James Heilman MD from Wikimedia Commons ( under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license (
In an online book or hyperlinked PDF, this can be condensed:
'Bells palsy' by James Heilman MD from Wikimedia Commons under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license.

Patient consent form[edit]

Hi Doc,

I'd like to contribute some photos of children with an autism-related disorder to wikimedia, and heard you'd be a good person to ask about subject consent (from discussion at

Do you have a standard letter/form that you use to ask patients for consent to upload your images? If so, could you send a copy to me (, so we may adapt it for our purposes?

Best wishes
