Questions[edit]

Hello. Please help me find answers to my questions.

How can you tell if an image is free use? If I find a picture on commons in another language, how can I put it on this English commons? Are images on flickr.com free use? --TheShadowCrow (talk) 01:29, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

A file is free if the copyright holder voluntarily realeased it under a free license. So files on Wikipedia are free if the copyright holder uploaded them under a free license. Or if the uploader proved that the copyright holder released them under a free license. Files on flickr are free if the copyright holder uploaded them to flickr and published them under a free license, see Commons:Flickr. --Martin H. (talk) 14:25, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
What about photos on Commons in other languages? There are photos in the Russian Commons I want to move here. How can I do that? --TheShadowCrow (talk) 18:41, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
I said something about files in other Wikipedia projects already. --Martin H. (talk) 18:42, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
But I have a hard time understanding how files here work. Please explain again how I can copy a picture in another language Commons to here. --TheShadowCrow (talk) 19:42, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Please enter "transfering files from wikipedia to Commons" to google. And have a look on your talkpage at the Welcome box, it says something about copying files from other projects. --Martin H. (talk) 23:10, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
There is no "English Commons" or "Russian Commons." Unlike Wikipedia (the free encyclopædia), which exists in many different language editions, there is only one single Commons project. Wikimedia Commons is a multilingual repository of free media, and files hosted here on Commons can be used directly by all the different language editions of Wikipedia and all other projects run by the Wikimedia Foundation. Files hosted on Commons but used on Wikipedia projects can have localised file description pages, which might make it appear as though they reside on that project unless you look closely. For example, en:File:The Earth seen from Apollo 17.jpg looks like a page on English Wikipedia, but all the information is grabbed directly File:The Earth seen from Apollo 17.jpg on Commons.
Some Wikipedia projects also allow files to be locally uploaded to that particular project. In some cases, they also allow non-free files to be uploaded. For example, en:File:ACDC-TNT.jpg is a locally hosted, non-free file. It cannot be transferred to Commons, since it's not free. See Commons:Moving to Commons for more.

File:John-xxiii-2.jpg[edit]

Hi Martin, I've seen that you objected the source information provided in this file. However, I can't see how the source information available right now is enough for supporting any claim. What do you think? --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 06:48, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

The original of this work contains Conroys signature. Conroys photographic work is described in books. --Martin H. (talk) 21:25, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

TIBEAN-Bilder gelöscht[edit]

Hallo, nach der Ankündigung, dass für die von mir hochgeladenen Bilder (file: TIBEAN Polycon.jpg, file: TIBEAN Polycon submerged.jpg und file: TIBEAN Polycon Anlagenkomponenten.jpg) die entsprechende Freigabe fehlt, habe ich die geforderten Nachweise (wie bereits beim Hochladen) an 'permissions-commons@wikimedia.org' geschickt. Ich bestätigte die Freigabe der Bilder deren Erstellung von der Firma für die ich arbeite bezahlt wurde, welche auch schon lange für jeden frei verfügbar auf unserer Homepage (http://www.polycon-gmbh.de/cms/polyplan/de/cms?cms_knuuid=a5040ae1-ae7d-4098-bf2e-b619bb61ea67 bzw. http://www.polyplan-gmbh.de/cms/polyplan/de/cms?---cms_knschluessel=schwerpunkte) sind. Trotz allem wurden sie ohne weiteren Kontakt gelöscht. Auf meine Anfragen wurde bisher nicht reagiert. Da der Artikel "Tiefenwasserbelüftung" ohne diese Bilder wenig Sinn macht, bitte ich um eine umgehende Wiederherstellung der Bilder bzw. endlich mal eine Erklärung, warum sie gelöscht wurden!

Danke.--PolyHB (talk) 13:03, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Vermutlich hast du dich in deiner Freigabe nicht auf die Dateien (in Commons:Emailvorlagen#Einverst.C3.A4ndniserkl.C3.A4rung_.28Rechte-Inhaber.29 der "Objektname") bezogen. Oder die Freigabe ist unzureichend, für jeden frei verfügbar ist nicht das Gleiche wie unter einer freien Lizenz. --Martin H. (talk) 19:24, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Kirankasve86 (talk · contribs)[edit]

why you deleted that photo, it was free to use everyone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kirankasve86 (talk • contribs)

Visible for free on a website does not mean that you can use it for free. Nor does it mean that ANYONE can use it for free. See Commons:Project scope#Required licensing terms. --Martin H. (talk) 15:56, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

OTRS permission[edit]

Many days ago, Fundación Ecuador Libre/Fundación del Barrio had send by mail to OTRS the permissions to use in Commons the photos I uploaded. In Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Mabel Velástegui is the list of the images requested for undeletion. Please check in the inbox of OTRS. --Mabel Velástegui (talk) 20:05, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Im not an OTRS volunteer. There is a backlog in OTRS ( i guess ), once they found the permission they will handle it. --Martin H. (talk) 15:53, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

User JoséContreras12 continues to violate the rules[edit]

Hello Martin! Some time ago I wrote requesting blocking the user account JoséContreras12. You blocked the user by the time a month but the user have returned to commit violations of the community rules. The user commits serious violations of copyright and licensing supplants of the files that he take online, making a fraud.

Please corroborate what I write, checking the user contributions.

Obviously, the user does not learn his lesson and does not want to work with the community because he violates the rules constantly. For this reason I request permanent blocking of user account.

I appreciate your attention and I hope that you make the best decision for the good of our beloved community.

Probleme mit User Steindy[edit]

Hallo Martin, ich hoffe, ich bin hier richtig. Ein User namens Steindy hat mir einen Kampf angekündigt, den ich aber keineswegs führen möchte. Als erstes hat er meine Userseite verändert. Falls sich auf meiner Userseite tatsächlich unzulässige Inhalte befinden sollten, bin ich selbstverständlich gerne bereit, diese zu entfernen oder von einem Admin entfernen zu lassen. Meine Frage ist daher, ist es erlaubt, ungefragt die Userseite eines anderen Benutzers zu verändern? Und darf man auf seiner Userseite auf Webseiten außerhalb der Wiki-Projekte verlinken oder nicht? Danke für deine Hilfe, Manuela (talk) 14:20, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Den "Kampf" hast Du mir angesagt, werte Manuela61. Verdrehe also nicht die Tatsachen. Deine Benutzerseite hast Du als Werbeplattform für Deine Homepage und die Tatsache missbraucht, dass Du als Profifotografin arbeitest und engangiert werden kannst. Dies ist sowohl nach den Regeln von commons, als auch nach den Regeln der de.WP (Punkt 3) nicht erlaubt. --Steindy (talk) 17:15, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Ihr wendet euch an den falschen, ich bin kein Diplomat. Ein so klar formuliertes Verbot gibt es nicht. An der Selbstbeschreibung mit Abschweifung zum Berufsbild ist auch nichts auszusetzen. Auch der Weblink geht auf eine eher persönlich gestaltete Webseite, nicht auf einen Verkaufskatalog. Kurzum, die Seite war in der alten Bearbeitung in Ordnung. Schade, dass ihr euch hier begegnet seit, währt ihr euch drausen beim Fotografieren begegnet, wäre der Kontakt sicher freundlicher verlaufen. --Martin H. (talk) 17:56, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Martin, danke für deine Rückmeldung, --Manuela (talk) 18:05, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

This file is missing evidence of permission.[edit]

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Инвентарь_и_окно_персонажа_Diablo_3.jpg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Интерфейс_активных_умений_DIablo_3.jpg

(Translation - Google) - You said that "This file is missing evidence of permission". I may not have the correct license type, and now I do not know how to fix it. These images - screenshots of the game Diablo III. I do not know how to fix the license. Can you indicate the type of license, and change the image information?

You have no permission and no license to publish the files under a free license. You have to contact the copyright holder and ask for a license. --Martin H. (talk) 16:50, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

User:ChrisAnorthosis[edit]

Hi! You gave this user end of copyvios warning in October 2011[1], I also warned him several times both on English wikipedia and commons, but it seems that he doesn't want to stop and still uploading unfree photos under false self-made claim.[2]--Oleola (talk) 10:46, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Done. --Martin H. (talk) 12:42, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Thumbnail[edit]

File:JJC.jpg[edit]

Hello:

This photo I uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, gave me poet´s daughter to use it anywhere, in fact, already been used in this triptych. I have limited myself to scan it and upload it. I hope you can help me on this with the appropriate license. Thank. Greetings: Manrique1430 (talk) 10:25, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

You are not the author, its not your own work. --Martin H. (talk) 10:29, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
No, I tell you that I got the picture of the poet's daughter for publication in the triptych that I mentioned earlier. Please ask him to help me on this, and that way I can upload that photo to Wikimedia Commons. I'm trying to be nominated this article in Wikipedia in Spanish AB. I ask you to help me on this. Greetings: Manrique1430 (talk) 11:29, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
You need information (author, copyright holder, original publication) in order to determine the copyright status and/or to ask the copyright holder for a written permission. --Martin H. (talk) 13:01, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Check[edit]

Would you like to check these images. Sie hat bestimmt aus Webseite geklaut. Danke.--R ašoAero-stub img.svg 11:49, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

CatScan[edit]

Hallo Martin H.

Letzter Zeit habe ich schwierigkeiten auf den Wikimediaserver zu kommen. Ich fühle mich verantwortlich für die Kategorie "Clock", die ich über CatScan erreichen möchte, damit ich die jeweilige Änderungen sehen kann. (https://toolserver.org/~daniel/WikiSense/CategoryIntersect.php?wikifam=commons.wikimedia.org&basecat=clocks&basedeep=6&mode=rc&hours=100&go=Scannen&format=html&userlang=de). Als Antwort bekomme ich ständig (Database Error: User 'daniel_www' has exceeded the 'max_user_connections' resource (current value: 15) on sql-s4/commonswiki_p) oder eine ähnliche Mitteilung. Leider weiß ich nicht was ich machen soll, oder auf wen ich mich direkt wenden kann. Nun habe ich es bei dir probiert, vieleicht kannst du mir helfen, oder leite meinen Frage an anderen Admin weiter. Danke!

Liebe Grüße --Karel K. (talk) 08:36, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Vom Toolserver bin ich auch nur Nutzer ohne weitere Kenntnis. --Martin H. (talk) 19:05, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

User:Pmotowa[edit]

Hallo Martin!

Es geht um o.g. Benutzer: Ich sah hierbei dringenden Handlungsbedarf und habe seine Dateien jüngst alle gelöscht. Grund für meine Entscheidung war nicht nur die Tatsache, dass es sich bei Dreien um offensichtliche URVs handelte, sondern auch die Tatsache, dass die Bilder unsinnige Dateinamen und noch weniger sinnvolle Dateibeschreibungen hatten. Sehr merkwürdig war die Dateigröße: Bilder mit Auflösungen von 800x1100 hatten Größen von über 25 MB (!). Sehr merkwürdig. Ich habe den Benutzer zusätzlich für 3 Tage gesperrt - reagiert zusätzlich nicht auf Nachrichten auf seiner Diskussionsseite. Kannst du bitte die Dateien überprüfen und ggf. Feedback geben, ob das Blockieren des Benutzers gerechtfertigt ist und was mit diesen Datein los ist/war. Gruß, High Contrast (talk) 23:09, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Komm nicht dahinter, was da schief gelaufen ist. Vielleicht irgendein komischer Dateityp (Hörbuch, Ebook waren meine Vermutung) der eine Jpg-Vorschau generiert? Wie gesagt, keine Ahnung. --Martin H. (talk) 23:29, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

"avant 1980": evidence? Also the required Information is not the assumed date of creation. The required info is the date of first publication. --Martin H. (talk) 16:17, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


File:Abdallah Kallel.jpg look this link http://www.abdallah-kallel.com/intox/I4_Abdallah_Kallel_et_la_corruption.php

toute les photos publier avant 5-7-1984 is pd tunisia ok

That page describes an event in 1978. It not says that the photo is from 1978, and it especially says nothing about the publication of the photo. That website is a publication from 2011. You have to provide evidence of publication before 5-7-1984 in Tunesia. Not creation. --Martin H. (talk) 16:34, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


hhhh is not internet in 1978 how can prouved you dont understund any thaink of rules of tunisia pd loook all tunisian pictur in commons all from archive how can prouved !!!!????

so where ??? tel me the correct licence --Adnen1985 (talk) 16:47, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

I dont know if there is a correct license. I see no reason for the photo to be free inside our requirements. --Martin H. (talk) 16:48, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

sorry but you dont know any thaink ??? you tell me how you prouve this before 1980 so how you prouve this pic????

Adnan, the important word is photos publier avant 5-7-1984. If something is published you can refer to a publication by citing it. --Martin H. (talk) 17:00, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

I said this alreadey: Provide the name of a publication before 5-7-1984. --Martin H. (talk) 17:09, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


soo look the new name source ?? and now???--Adnen1985 (talk) 17:16, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

I just realized there was an error in the verbiage of the template, as the Tunisian law is stating that pictures protection starts from the year of their creation and not of their publication. SO NOW ???

PD-Tunisia verbiage[edit]

Hi Martin,
I saw your discussion with Adnen around PD-Tunisia. I just realized there was an error in the verbiage of the template, as the Tunisian law is stating that pictures protection starts from the year of their creation and not of their publication. That does not change much to the specific cases discussed with Adnen but I wanted to make you aware of this distinction. Moumou82 (talk) 17:50, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

SO now martin???--Adnen1985 (talk) 21:26, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

That does not change much. The country of origin is the country of first publication, not the country where the depcited person comes from. So far you quote books published in France by L'Harmattan and Karthala or websites published in France (Abdallah Kallel photo). The requirement on Commons is that a file is public domain in the country of origin and the US. If France is the country of origin the file is not free enough for Commons. See the first words of the template: "Cette œuvre a été publiée la première fois en Tunisie" --Martin H. (talk) 23:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
YOU DONT KNOW ANY THAINK ALL THIS PIC IN TUNISIA NOT IN FRANCE AND YOU DONT UNDER.. PIC CRÉATION NOT PUBLICATION OK--Adnen1985 (talk) 20:14, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Schnelllöschung von Dateien[edit]

Hallo, kannst Du bitte mal erklären warum Du bei folgenden Dateien Schnellöschungsanträge gestellt hast? File:Krupp_schiessplatz_meppen.jpg, File:Feldhaubitze k.jpg, File:Schiessplatz wahn geschuetz.jpg Arche-foto (talk) 19:01, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Bei allen ist die Behauptung "erreicht nicht die notwendige Schöpfungshöhe" (Template:PD-ineligible) Unsinn. Es fehlt also eine korrekte Angabe des urheberrechtlichen Status. Bei allen steht, der Urheber sei nicht bekannt, nach eigenem Erkenntnisstand mag das stimmen, objektiv ist es aber eine unbelegte Behauptung die mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit schlichtweg falsch ist. Der Urheber von File:Krupp schiessplatz meppen.jpg ist 1945 gestorben, die Datei ist nicht gemeinfrei. --Martin H. (talk) 19:26, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

User JoséContreras12 and fraudulent contributions[edit]

Hello Dear Martin.

I want to inform of the copyright violations that continues making the user JoséContreras12, despite warnings that you and I have done. You can see the recent user contributions: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Jos%C3%A9Contreras12. The user upload copyrighted files and passed this files like his own work, which is completely false and fraudulent. I have applied to you as an administrator blocking the user's account and I request it again today, because the user ignores the warnings and suggestions and does not respect the rules of the community, also not the first time he commits acts of copyvio and violations of copyright, this he has done on several occasions.

Greetings!

Deletion?[edit]

Hey, I was just wondering why you tagged the image of Benedict Cumberbatch I uploaded from Flickr for deletion - it was licensed as CC-BY over there as far as I could tell. Was there another issue with it? Sorry to take up your time. :/ Keilana (talk) 19:43, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

sockpuppet of User:MarkMysoe[edit]

User:EnzoRivos, confirmed sockpuppet[3] of blocked user MarkMysoe is still uploading photos under false license, like File:President John Dramani Mahama.jpg and File:John Dramani Mahama (President of Ghana).jpg. Both photos are tagged as CC BY-ND 2.0 on Flickr, he uploaded them as CC BY-SA 3.0. As you can see in his log[4], he uploaded more photos with false license at the same day, but has already been removed.--Oleola (talk) 19:45, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Blocked, are all uploads checked? --Martin H. (talk) 21:10, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Deletion of Philippine Government works[edit]

I've notice that the photos I uploaded from the Philippine government sites were deleted. I have no intentions into breaking copyright law. All of the images came from http://www.gov.ph/ states that "All content is public domain unless otherwise stated." So I think I'm not breaking into any copyright law. Correct me if I'm wrong.--Zuanzuanfuwa (talk) 13:07, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

I restored those from that website with a verifiable link to the website. And fixed the license. This files are not free in terms of Commons:Licensing because the law says so. The law requires written permission for commercial reuse. This files are public domain because the website, the presumabl copyright holder releases them into the public domain. --Martin H. (talk) 16:42, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Chace Watson[edit]

I don't know your sockpuppet process, so please take a look at the English Wikipedia investigation for Chace Watson. I'm fairly certain that MyCanon is a Chace Watson sock.Kww (talk) 23:44, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

That case is a little bit too old. If MyCanon is Chase Watson, then he not longer behaves like Chase Watson. --Martin H. (talk) 16:43, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Chace continues to disrupt English Wikipedia to this day. It looks to me like he uses the MyCanon account for good behaviour and continues to sockpuppet and edit war with anonymous accounts and sockpuppet accounts.Kww (talk) 20:01, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Martin, was schlägst Du bezüglich des weiteren Vorgehens vor? Alle Uploads einzeln kontrollieren und die FlickrReview-Tags rauswerfen? Die Uploads von User:Tom Sorensen nuken? (s. talk page des users und http://www.flickr.com/photos/moovieboy/8888500452/ vs. File:Josh Gad at the The Internship Premiere 2013.jpg) -- Rillke(q?) 09:09, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Wenn klar ist, dass der Flickr Benutzer nicht der Commons Benutzer ist sondern hier nur jemand die Identität imitiert hat, dann ist der Fall doch klar. Löschen, ohne Diskussion. --Martin H. (talk) 17:33, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Und das stimmt.
Begründung: Die Herkunft der IP ist so markant eindeutig, dass es sehr unwahrscheinlich ist, dass MyCanon nicht Chace Watson ist. Mit der IP kann der Commons-Benutzer nicht der Flickr-Benutzer sein, über die Bilder auf Flickr sind dessen Reiseaktivitäten ja nachvollziehbar. --Martin H. (talk) 17:39, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Danke (auch für das Löschen; ich glaube es ist besser, wenn ein CU das macht…). Das ist ja unglaublich. Da wurde ich aber an der Nase herumgeführt. -- Rillke(q?) 17:49, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

I see that you've taken care of the files uploaded by the imposter accounts. What's the process for the files uploaded by the MyCanon account? If they were on English Wikipedia, I'd be busy deleting them all as well.Kww (talk) 19:16, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

And, on a related note, deleting the Mayra Cavigno pages was only a portion of the problem. After fraudulently uploading them, he then preceded to use the MyCanon account to produce crops of each and every one, like File:Jay Baruchel 2013.jpg for example. Here's a complete set of links:

So the process here would be to retain the images by MyCanon unless there's something explicitly wrong with them?Kww (talk) 20:40, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
I will not go through his contribs. Too much work. --Martin H. (talk) 20:46, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Please have a look at User:Tomdog, setup sounds very similar to the Tom Sorensen page. A request to confirm identity has been left unanswered. Was only active for ~13 hours to upload these images and was never seen here again. If there's not sufficient evidence for being a fake account I suggest to tag these images as missing permission. --Denniss (talk) 20:40, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Delete File[edit]

Hi Martin, you delete the file image of Sergio Gjurinovic which recently uploaded, that pic is from the facebook of the Movie "Sueños de Gloria" and I working in the production, that material is mine and UI have the rights for use it, so please upload the image again.

Thank You

PD: If you need any prove, just asking.

Please provide written permission from the copyright holder - Interandina Films? - for reuse under a free license. See Commons:OTRS/es. --Martin H. (talk) 23:09, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

A little too quick?[edit]

Hi. I just saw your note on my discussion page. I believe you have deleted the image by a mistake, as all pictures uploaded to oslobilder.no are licensed as "cc-by-sa 3.0 Norway" by consent of creators and owners. The licence tag is visible below the image. Thus, the image fullfills our requirements. Erik F (talk) 09:53, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

CC-BY-NC-ND, thats the license on that page, not cc-by-sa 3.0, is not a free license. --Martin H. (talk) 17:28, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Shouldn't the files uploaded by Consmoer/Seffrybulion (and their many socks) be deleted?[edit]

I came across a pile of files uploaded by User:Seffrybulion (mis-categorized in Category:Solders, which is what caught my eye), and noticed that you blocked the account back in 2012, along with a bunch of apparent socks. It seemed like their uploads were questionable, due to the lack of clear sourcing. It looks like a lot of the uploads remain on the wiki (and are even used in various articles). Is this a problem? Would it be worth my time to go through and tag them for deletion? Thanks for your time and effort maintaining the wiki. 63.251.123.2 20:54, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

I think I already deleted the copyvios from that user. That was files from the 1970s or 80s with claims "author died 70 years ago" or "published 50 years ago". --Martin H. (talk) 02:20, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Deleted file with EN WP usage[edit]

Can you explain the deletion of File:Tom Hanks 2012.jpg?--TonyTheTiger (talk) 01:59, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Joel Courtney 20120112.jpg[edit]

I'm not sure why this picture is flagged for deletion. I took that photo personally on my iPhone before a red carpet event. it's my own work! I fully released that photo into public domain. Please tell me what else I have to do?

There was an attempt at the en.wp article to include an IMDB photo before (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Joel_Courtney&diff=541083096&oldid=541082847, see filename of the external image link pointing to this IMDB file). Also this photo isnt not previously published as said in the log but also from IMDB. --Martin H. (talk) 20:46, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

I published that picture to Wikipedia first, then copied it over to IMDB as well. I can delete it from IMDB if it's illegal to have the photo located in both places. Please tell me what I need to do to get my photo back up.

Thats not illegal, but for me it sounds not very likely that first someone tries to include an IMDB photo link and the same time someone uploads a photo that in the same size is in IMDB. You may confirm your authorship via Commons:OTRS. Please refer to the filename in your conversation with OTRS. --Martin H. (talk) 04:03, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

This is now settled per OTRS ticket 013070110006795. @Dmcourtn: Please understand that we are very careful here in regard to copyright. We have myriads of copyright violations every day where a picture is copied without permission from somewhere in the web (like IMDB, for example). In these cases we insist on a confirmation through OTRS which we now have. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 17:42, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Danke dir. --Martin H. (talk) 15:21, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Albert Cossery[edit]

hello Martin; the Picture of Albert Cossery that I uploaded is a painting done by Frederico Penteado (as mentioned) that I have actually bought from him. Therefore, there is no permission issue. Thanks

Then it is not your own work. Also physical ownership of an original artwork does not mean that you own the copyright. --Martin H. (talk) 21:59, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello,

I am trying to change the email address associated with this page. Any help as to how to go about doing that?

What email adress associated with en:Peaches (musician)? Thats an article in Wikipedia, add it to your watchlist and get email notifications for changes on articles on your watchlist. But anyway: Stop uploading unfree files. --Martin H. (talk) 07:26, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Harper Simon/Peaches Does Herself[edit]

Hello,

I work for the management team for both artists and was told to update their pages. I have permission to use both photos but confused as to the proper method of uploading. How would I go about proving that I have permission? I have to upload another image to use for Peaches (musician) page. Thanks

Seems like you got the first step already: correct uploading. Not upload the work of others with the upload option "its my own work". You did this correct at File:Peaches.jpg. The file description says, that the copyright holder agreed that anyone can reuse the photo anywhere for redistribution, derivative work, commercial use, and all use as long as the copyright holder is attributed. That requires evidence of written permission. See COM:OTRS for that process and the notification on your talkpage. --Martin H. (talk) 23:11, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I have noticed that you deleted the file: "File:Eleventhblock-meme-Kanye.jpeg" that I have stated I was going to use on user page back on Wikipedia. However, you claimed the file was copyright infringement even though I have posted the text on the meme. That image was mine so it was not breaking copyright. Please contact me back, thank you. :)  11Block |talk 02:10, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Its derivative of someone else work, not entirely own work. This makes it unfree. You can release your own work under whatever license you want, but if your work is based on someone else work or is a collage of your content and the content from others, then the license wont apply to the content that you not created. Unless the copyright holder published the content under a free license you cant upload it here. -Martin H. (talk) 19:00, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Ah ok, it's HIM... Probably best to just delete them all. In any case, photographer Hahn is de:Walter Hahn (1889–1969), most likely, so no PD there, photographer Möbius refers to de:Walter Möbius (1900–1959), I think, so no PD there either.

Update for you on pictures ... please review documentation

Update in reponse to "Thats a little bit too much text for a very simple task. We not need "released for use on Damon Matthew Wise wikipadia information page". The only thing we need is the copyright holders written agreement that anyone, worldwide, can reuse the photo anywhere, anytime for every purpose including modifications and money making purposes. See Commons:Project scope#Required licensing terms. Anyone and commisioned for one person is an important difference. Also use for one article or in specific materials such as election materials and for any purpose is an important difference. There is a very simple email template linked at the permission information pages. Simply fill in the copyright holder, the license that the copyright holder agreed to, the name of the work and let the copyright owner sent the written permission to the given email adress. --Martin H. (talk) 17:26, 22 August 2013 (UTC)"

Some kind of permission form has been filled in (and many communications and submissions made in the last week have not yet showed, and has been sent again by the subject and right holder - form assumes OR, when Damon is both personally and in a charitable/non-profit capacity exclusive right holder to the photos. Permission given under international law requires consent for use to be notified and use identified, for Public use. On the condition that use is appropriate to the subject. He information or public awareness in relation to his Community politics, autism, and disability charity and voluntary work and as journalist, writer, editor, publisher - and these photos are widely used across many webpages for his various charity and non-profit groups as officer, director and committee member, and in various press and media - rights of which are exclusively used in connection with nominated charities approved.

If there is a specific form in relation to information pages, please locate, as only been given a general rights form, much of which is illegal under international law, and specific to US derivation from copyright law, according to Damon (with his legal advocate hat on).

The person who gave the rights and the Newspapers rights licensing body for Ireland, and others - studios and photographers who was commissioned to shoot the images and sold them have both asserted the rights-holder is, common to the case taken by the case-holder Damon Matthew Wise Vs Facebook (2010) entitled to use his own image and transfer and use and bestow as he sees fit. If he has given and stated to have given those rights to all kinds of social networking sites in relation to media coverage of himself as a journalist and any voluntary and community, or charity-work in autism and Disability areas then you better have a Dog-gone good reason to be breaching his right to have them appropriately used here with his repeatedly stated permission.

Seems like this is fixed. However, the grey fields in Commons:Email templates are fields that you have to replace with your text. You did not change the text under what license you want to license the work, i.e. you not removed the words "STANDARD CHOICE.." etc. . This means you did not license the work, you just forgot to replace the standard text. --Martin H. (talk) 20:43, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Hermitage Plaza pictures[edit]

Hello, You've deleted the files from the article Hermitage plaza in the beginning of July this year. I've written on 26 July to the OTRS for the permission of the following files File:Projet Hermitage Plaza.jpg File:Vue du ciel Hermitage Plaza.jpg File:Hermitage Plaza.jpg and File:Vue du ciel Hermitage Plaza.jpg to restaure them under the licence/authors rights <Groupe HERMITAGE/FOSTER+PARTNERS >. No answer for the moment and no pics in th article. Please can you help me and check the point the permission is? Thank you in advance. karlson-san

If permission is handled the files will be restored. Make sure you referenced the filenames, i.e. replace the replacement field "SPECIFY THE WORK HERE" in the permission template with the name of the file (and/or the url). Make sure that the email comes from an official email adress from an company officer with statutory authority who is able to license the companys intelectual property.

Location Bundesarchiv-Bild[edit]

Hallo Martin H.. Du hast vor Urzeiten mal location-Vorlagen in Bundesarchiv-Bilder von Göttingen eingefügt (super übriigens, vielen Dank!). Anlässlich WLM2013 habe ich mal versucht, herauszufinden, welche Fotos aus Göttingen noch Baudenkmale abbilden, und bin auf File:Bundesarchiv B 145 Bild-F001055-0006, Göttingen, Altstad.jpg gestoßen. Dort scheint mir der Aufnahmestandort nicht richtig angegeben. Nach Vergleichen mit aktuelleren Fotos möchte ich eigentlich ausschließen, dass dort die Angerstraße oder die Groner Straße abgebildet ist. Tatsächlich hatte ich zunächst die Düstere Straße in Verdacht, die passt aber auch nicht. Zumindest die Häuser, die sich heute als alte Fachwerkhäuser oder Gründerzeit-Häuser zeigen, müssten ja auf dem alten Bild auch erkennbar sein. Im Moment bezweifle ich sogar, ob das Foto überhaupt in Göttingen aufgenommen wurde, obwohl vom gleichen Tag und gleichen Fotografen auch andere Göttingen-Bilder existieren. Manchmal sind die Beschreibungen des Bundesarchivs aber auch fehlerhaft. Hast Du da genauere Hinweise, wo das sein könnte? --Dehio (talk) 07:45, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

In errinnerung habe ich, dass einige der Bundesarchiv-Bilder von den Straßen rund um die Kirche St. Marien waren. Die Straße hier muss dem Schattenwurf nach inetwa in südliche Richtung verlaufen und dem Bild nach einen leichten Schwenk nach links machen. Das würde auf die Angerstraße passen. Allerdings gebe ich dir recht, den Gebäuden nach passt das Bild nicht dorthin wo ich es platziert habe. --Martin H. (talk) 23:06, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
In der Beschreibung steht "Neustadt". Wenn das stimmt, dann müsste die Lage eher ungefähr hier sein:
Camera location 51° 32′ 04.13″ N, 9° 55′ 48.05″ E View this and other nearby images on: OpenStreetMap - Google Maps - Google Earth info
(Wenn die Vorlage hier Probleme macht, gerne einfach auskommentieren oder so)
In der Neustadt gibt es heute nur noch zwei alte Häuser, die aber offenbar auf dem Bild nicht zu sehen sind - alles andere wurde Ende der 60er/Anfang der 70er Jahre abgerissen. Die alten Bilder, die ich von vor dem Abriss gefunden habe, passen auch nicht richtig zu diesem Bild, denn der Kurvenaußenbereich ist völlig anders bebaut und es sind in der Neustadt keine Fachwerkbauten im "gotischen" Stil (mit Zwischengeschoss und vorkragendem Oberstock) erkennbar. Größere solche Häuser (wie auf dem Foto erkennbar) wären auch von der Lage her eher unwahrscheinlich für die Neustadt, denn solche Häuser standen eigentlich nur innerhalb der inneren Stadtmauer (auf dieser Seite also östlich des Leinekanals), nicht in der Neustadt oder dem alten Dorf oder dem Weender alten Dorf. Ich kann es zwar derzeit nicht sicher ausschließen, dass das Foto doch die Neustadt zeigt, bin aber sehr skeptisch. Vielleicht frage ich mal in de:WP bei der Auskunft --Dehio (talk) 07:47, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Cioran and Lucretius[edit]

Cioran. This file is a picture that I paint, but, if you don't want risk with copyright, I could modified its. The image is my work, made by me.

Lucretius. I photographed the bust in Rome. The photo is my property.

Rather, there is another photo, not remodeled, on Cioran, on commons, which is identical to a copyrighted photo, little changed. I have, instead, personally made ​​by me uploading the file. Using as a model the existing photo (of course, given that Cioran is dead) is normal to be some similarity with photos lying around.--StefanoRR (talk) 16:03, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

A work that is based on someone else work - for example painting or a computer / software aided "oil painiting look-alike" based on a photo - is always a derivative work of the original and it is not possible to license such work/co-work without the permission from the copyright holder of the original. You have to make your own photo of that person. The photo that you used for this photoshoping experiment is Copyghted by the AFP, the EXIF still shows that the original comes from their ImageForum [10].
The photo of the sculpture: Well, I doubt. You may upload your original photography. The version that you uploaded show striking similarities to the photo that I linked. To be precice: Its the same photography. --Martin H. (talk) 16:19, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
Well, I upload a new version, a painting of Cioran in Paris. The character is him, but it's an artistic work, Cioran (with the Tour Eiffel), like this:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Emil_Cioran,_fil%C3%B3sofo_y_escritor.jpg or this http://galeriadeartaeliteprofart2012.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/20-rodica-anca-marinescu-emil-cioran-2012-pastel-pe-panza-70-x-70-550-e.jpg?w=150&h=136 but I painted its.--StefanoRR (talk) 19:24, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
Thats still not entirely your creative work. Its a work of a photographer who not licensed it for your use, its your work and it is the work of a computer software which to some extend (the effects, the background image) can also have copyright. Its a collective work of multiple authors and only all authors together can publish it under a free license. Without the photographers permission you can not upload any derivative version of the photo here.
Thats the copyright poblem.
The file is a derivative work or - if you want to call it so - a Commons:Collages of two photos manipulated with computer software. All content used in a collage MUST be freely licensed, and all sources and authors MUST be mentioned. You neither reuse freely licensed content nor did you mention your sources. --Martin H.

Pour M. H. Martin[edit]

Cher Monsieur H. Martin,

J’ai été informé que vous désirez mettre au point les règles de votre encyclopédie avec les fichiers qui sont installés dans Wikipedia.ro, respectivement les numéros de la revue FRAGMENTA DIPTEROLOGICA, du chapitre ANDY Z. LEHRER.

Peut-être vous savez que je suis un ancien entomologiste roumain, qui a donné beaucoup de contributions taxonomiques, parasitologiques, biogéographiques etc. pour quelques zones biogéographiques. Mais, parce que je ne suis pas jeune, mes connaissance de Roumanie, ont pensé que je mérite être mentionné, pour mes études, dans cette encyclopédie. Je ne sais pas les règles de votre Wikipedia, et pour cela, j’ai vu que mes amis ont fait mon portrait et ont mentionné beaucoup de mes contributions scientifiques, y compris ma revue. Evidement, je suis honoré de leur action et je remercie au Wikipedia pour cette bienveillance exceptionnelle.

Concernant la revue FRAGMENTA DIPTEROLOGICA, je peux vous dire que je suis l’auteur de cette revue, conçu par moi en conformité avec le Code International de Nomenclature Zoologique, et je transmette tous les numéros on ligne aux quelques cents de chercheurs du monde et sur papier aux 35 grandes bibliothèques et instituts du monde. D’autre part, j’ai donné la permission de quelques personnalités roumaines d’utiliser ma revue pour les sites internationaux.

Dans cette situation, je ne sais pas pourquoi vous désirez effacer cette revue, qui donne continuellement et gratuitement mes contributions de grande valeur scientifique et ce que je dois faire pour régler ce problème dans le sens encyclopédique.

Dans l’attente de vous lire (en anglais), je vous assure, cher M. H. Martin, de mes sentiments les plus distingués.

BONNE ANNEE 2014 !

Prof. Dr. Andy Z. Lehrer

P.S. Je vous prie de me pardonner parce que je n’avais écrit en anglais. Je ne sais bien votre langue et pour cela j’ai vous écrit en français.

Dear Mr H. Martin,

I was informed that you wish to develop the rules of your encyclopaedia with the files which are installed in Wikipedia.ro, respectively the numbers of the review FRAGMENTA DIPTEROLOGICA, of chapter ANDY Z LEHRER.

Perhaps you know that I am a former Rumanian entomologist, who gave many taxonomic contributions, parasitologic, biogeographic etc for some biogeographic zones. But, because I am not young, my knowledge of Romania, thought that I deserve being mentioned, for my studies, in this encyclopaedia. I do not know the rules of your Wikipedia, and for this reason, I saw that my friends made my portrait and mentioned many of my scientific contributions, including my review. Cavity, I am honoured with their action and I thank in Wikipedia for this exceptional benevolence.

Concerning the review FRAGMENTA DIPTEROLOGICA, I can say to you that I am the author of this review, designed by me in conformity with the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, and I transmit to all the numbers on line to the few hundreds of researchers of the world and on paper to the 35 large libraries and institutes of the world. In addition, I gave the permission of some Rumanian personalities to use my review for the international sites.

In this situation, I do not know why you wish to erase this review, which gives continuously and free my contributions of great scientific value and what I must make to regulate this problem in the encyclopaedic direction.

In waiting to read you (in English), I assure you, dear Mr. H. Martin, of my sincerity.

GOOD YEAR 2014!

Prof Dr. Andy Z Lehrer

P.S. Please forgive me because I had not written in English. I do not know well your language and for this reason I have writes to you in French.

Commons users indefinitely blocked in July 2010[edit]

Hi, Martin.

Years ago, when I started to use the Wikimedia Commons I uploaded some images without license.

I mean, I really didn´t know how upload the images correctly. So, after two or three advices I have been blocked including my IP.

Then, I come here to ask you how my real account can be free one more time.

I´ll show you the page that are organized with the users who were indefinitely blocked in 2010: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Commons_users_indefinitely_blocked_in_July_2010

My real username is Userwiki.

I´m waiting your return and I´ll say one thing: I did that uploads because I didn´t know the politics about the Wikimedia and I´d like a chance to get my account.

Thank you.

Commonsimage.

The edit https://pt.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Sport_Club_do_Recife&diff=35870770&oldid=35870166 is treacherous. The edit includes an image to Wikipedia that another account uploaded to Commons a few minutes before. That account however seems to be focused on including stolen content to our project. In conclusion I can only see that you learned abusing sockpuppets ánd continue to vandalize the free content projects with unfree content - although such content simply has nothing to do in a free encyclopedia. You not learned the politics of the projects. --Martin H. (talk) 22:10, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

It's never too late[edit]

Hi. Three years have passed but it's never too late. I just began inserting your Category:Popular Science Monthly illustrations/Volume 84 uploads at Wikisource, and wanted to thank you for the help. — Ineuw 18:57, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Parliamentary Copyright[edit]

Hi, I didn't realise Parliamentary Copyright was different to OGL. By that reckoning this upload should also be deleted: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lordrowlands.jpg That is the last one. Appologies for this. --Flaming Ferrari (talk) 06:09, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

User:Necojin and User:Worst0703[edit]

You recently warned Necojin for uploading images of YeonWoo Jhi which turned out to be copyright violations. A "new" user has appeared both on Commons and the English Wikipedia called User:Worst0703, who has also uploaded an image of the YeonWoo Jhi (File:Ywywywywyw.jpg), using a similar file name to an upload by Necojin and with a similar claim that the image is the user's "own work". While I can't immediately prove that the image is a copyright violation, I do have the feeling that Necojin and Worst0703 might be the same person, trying to avoid a possible block by starting anew.

Just thought someone familiar with this ought to be informed. Regards, VeryCrocker (talk) 08:37, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Talkback/ Nili89[edit]

Good Evening, I'm a trainee in an Italian Museum hosting an exibition on Eve Arnold's work. We're are providing permission for the three images given for the press conference and media use and loaded "without permission". Documents will be send to the wiki common address, but this will take two or three days. In other case, at the end of the seven days you can delete the images. Thank you!

The Cowboy[edit]

Please don't vandalize the image of the cowboy. The information about its provenance is valuable and refers to reliable sources. Senor Cuete (talk) 16:55, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Thats Original Reasearch and not belongs to file description pages. For example the text says "X is not listed as having a livestock brand" and quotes as a reliable source for this finding the listing of livestock brands. The research is executed by the author of the wiki text, not by any reliable third party. So no, there is no reliable sources. --Martin H. (talk) 18:49, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
You seem confused about the definition of original research. I can add a lot more citations to reliable sources and intend to do so when I have the time. There is no page about Grabill and there should be. The photographer labeled the image as Fred Pierce so this is a primary source. This image is the iconic image of a cowboy and the identification is important to Americans - particularly if it's really from the Pleasant Valley War. Every good wikipedian knows that his job is to improve the content of Wiki, not bully other editors by deleting their work. Why don't you discuss this on the talk page or request arbitration? Senor Cuete (talk) 16:20, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Simply quote a source that provides research on the photo and describe what that source finds out. No collection of primary sources, no interpretation of what primary sources say and how they intereact. Thats all original research and not belongs to the projects. In general a research result not belongs to the file description page which purpose is only to give a brief description of the media file. --Martin H. (talk) 18:55, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
I can add a citation to the article citing Richardson. The correct procedure would be to add a citation needed tag. Senor Cuete (talk) 19:56, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

File:Hermann Emil Fischer.jpg[edit]

Hi Martin, Du hattest meine Datierung von "1892 ca" entfernt mit der Begründung "date is unconfirmed, most likely from between 1904 and 1910". Schau Dir mal die zwei Fotos in seinem Würzburger Labor (ca. 1889-1892) und Berliner Labor (vor 1900) an, seine Haarfülle ist ein Gradmesser für seine Lebensjahre. Ich halte die Datierung ca. 1890 daher weiterhin aufrecht.

Bei diesem Bild hattest Du als Urheber "Nicola Perscheid" nachgetragen; sein erstes Atelier richtete Perscheid 1891 in Görlitz/Sachsen ein. Woher hast Du die Information über die Urheberschaft Perscheids? Es gibt dieses Bild ca. 30x im Netz auf verschiedenen Webseiten, ohne diesen Urheber-Hinweis. mfg --Drdoht (talk) 15:13, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Es gibt das Portrait in voller Größe bei [11], Urheber ist Atelier Victoria (Inh. Paul Gericke, gegr. 1894). Nochmals meine Frage: Wie kommst Du dazu, hier als Urheber "Nicola Perscheid" einzutragen? --Drdoht (talk) 02:57, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Das Bild wurde auf einer anderen Webseite zusammen mit einem Bild im Labor als Portraitserie beschrieben. Das Bild im Labor ist das Bild Nr. 00110409 von Ullsteinbild, dort abrufbar, von Perscheid. Die Information der Webseite scheint demnach falsch gewesen zu sein. Es schließst sich die Frage nach den Lebensdaten Gerickes an. Ferner die Frage nach der Quelle der Datierung, die Quelle die den neuen Urheber nennt sagt 1903. --Martin H. (talk) 11:52, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Bilder des Bundesarchivs[edit]

Hallo Martin H.

Es geht um die Bilder des Bundesarchivs File:Bundesarchiv Bild 105-DSWA0001, Deutsch-Süd-Westafrika, Las Palmas, Straßenbild.jpg und File:Bundesarchiv Bild 105-DSWA0002, Deutsch, Süd-Westafrika, Las Palmas, Kathedrale.jpg

Du bist der erste Bearbeiter den ich packen kann (und der darüber hinaus auch noch Admin ist). Ich möchte natürlich nicht die Originalbezeichnungen und –beschreibungen des Bundesarchivs kaputtmachen. Aber – was haben die Bilder mit Deutsch, Süd-Westafrika zu tun? Gut, man kam auf dem Weg vom Deutschen Reich nach Süd-Westafrika an den Kanarischen Inseln vorbei aber sonst? Die Ortsbestimmung des ersten Bildes habe ich auf der Diskussionsseite begründet. Das zweite Bild zeigt eindeutig Las Palmas de Gran Canria. Zu erkennen sind die Kathedrale und das Gebäude des Theaters das heute den Namen Pérez Galdós trägt. Kannst Du bitte die Beschreibungen und Kategorien ändern?--Koppchen (talk) 17:54, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

BelgianEuro coins[edit]

Hey Martin,

I'm obviously new here and English isn't my native language but it's kinda hard to become a contributor to wiki when everything you try to do is taken down immediatly.

Now: 1. The designer of the 2014 coins didn't die more than 70 years ago, however, Euro coins are part of the public domain and are not a problem for wiki. If you check this page, you can see there are already coins being used for the article. 2. The Commons:Currency page you send me too speeks of banknotes denominated in Belgian francs but here I'm using Euro (and not Belgian francs) coins! And because there already photographs of coins being used on the page about Belgian coins, but also about other similar Euro coins like the French page for example, I think it's OK. 3. Your third point is valid so I won't argue with that ;) But it only concerns 2 of the 12 images I uploaded.

I really hope we can do something about this and come to an agreement because I already used the images for the Belgian coins page and I think we have the right to do so.

One last thing: I was quite sure I had the right to uplaod this because on this page, it clearly says under 'Exceptions' that coins (or 'monnaies' in French) are accepted.

TIA for your answer.

Old socks/RFCU[edit]

Hi Martin. Through checks and contribs, I've determined that Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Rukshanawahab are early accounts of sockmaster Jermboy27. I've re-tagged the Rukshanawahab socks to demonstrate the connection and avoid any future confusion. If you see further accounts like these with edits on roadsigns, please block them as socks of JB27. Thanks. INeverCry 19:33, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

File: Pr. Charles Eugene Quinquaud (1841-1894).jpg[edit]

Dear Martin, Guten Abend, good evening,

I fully understand that you could believe that the above mentioned file may have copyright issues, as it has been created from a high resolution picture of the bust of C-E Quinquaud, which is copyrighted by Académie nationale de médecine - Paris, as stated in the description.

The original goal is to illustrate the wikipedia page: Charles Eugène Quinquaud. The people who manage copyrights about this picture (library of Academy) want to keep rights upon the original file. We discussed the fact that any picture file put on wikicommons may be used by anybody for any other use. That is why they decided that only a low-resolution image of this bust (24 or 48 dpi) will be uploaded on wikicommons.

I got the full written authorization to create this low resolution thumbnail picture from the original one. Should you request it, I will give you the email address of the person in Academie nationale de médecine, to get a direct confirmation.

In a first step, I did upload a 48 dpi image, with the title : Charles Eugene Quinquaud (1841-1894).jpg . I have seen that such resolution is still "too good" for the simple use in the wikipedia page. That is why:

  • I asked this 48 dpi picture to be removed
  • I uploaded a new file with a lower resolution 24 dpi, with the title: Pr. Charles Eugene Quinquaud (1841-1894).jpg

A bit complicated, sorry!, and thanks for your answer about what to do now... Best regards,--Nestorrefacteur (talk) 19:58, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Its not the laws/rules of Wikimedia COmmons. Its simply copyright laws and the understanding that only the rights owner can license something to someone else for some purposes. In our context of free content 'licensing' means a free license, 'someone else' means anyone, worldwide and 'some purposes' means any purpose including commercial purposes. What you did was trying to impersonate someone else for the purpose of executing those persons right regarding those persons intelectual property rights, i.e. you tried to license someone else property for worldwide commercial reuse without those persons knowledge. I was in contact with said person back in 2011. Sorry, but for an unblock I would ask for some more elaborated explanation. Use

Difficult question, a clear answer here isnt possible. A file on Commons must be realistically usefull for educational purposes. Photos of people sometimes fulfill this requirements, sometimes not. Series of photos of people rareley fulfill this requirement. Too often imho it would be nice if the uploaders make a selection and only upload the best of the best of their work and not every photo they created. See e.g. photo agencies who ofers a wide range of stock photographies of people in many situations or doing certain activities, but they have some sort of quality control and only offer the best of the best of photography, not inferior photographs of the same setting. So in general it shouldnt be the focus to avoid photos of non-notable people, the many focus should be to avoid inferior photographs of the same settungs. --Martin H.

File:Gilles jacquier 1.jpg[edit]

The file is deleted so I can no longer access the information, but it was from the French government, which was the license used, but it could very well also fit under "fair use". Without the address, I cannot call up from memory the exact cirumstances that led to the license used. Crtew (talk) 17:59, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

The file was from the French Foreign Ministery, long time ago in the past it was believed that they offer content under free content conditions, but Commons:Deletion requests/Template:FrenchMinistryOfForeignAffairs and other discussions concluded differently. Under any unfree copyright status including any sort of fair use exemption the file cant be used on Commons. --Martin H. (talk) 22:20, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't believe you are right about the "fair use" exemption because the journalist is dead and there is no other way to get a photograph of the dead. As a means to illustrate a subject whose photo cannot be obtained otherwise, one may use the photo under this exemption. US Law. The Wikipedia servers are in the United States.

Beau Coup Images[edit]

Good morning Martin, Amherst Records sent an email to permissions to allow me the use of their copyrighted photos from Beau Coup's album cover well over a week ago. Are you able to tell me how I find out the status of that or how they will let me know its ok to put the pictures back on the page? Thanks you for your time Mmcard59 (talk) 11:58, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

There are various problems now.
  • First it seems like the album cover isnt your own work, but you used the upload option "This file is my own work" in the upload wizard. The correct way is the other option "This file is not my own work".
  • If you got permission to reuse the file, then you have insufficient permission. The copyright holder must agree that anyone can reuse the file
  • If the copyright holder agreed that the file can be used in a Wikipedia article (you said this on COM:OTRSN) then you got insufficient permission. The copyright holder must agree that anyone can reuse the file anywhere, for every purpose including commercial purposes and modification.
I recommend Commons:Project scope#Must be freely licensed or public domain and a formal permission using the template at COM:OTRS. --Martin H. (talk) 18:13, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Aron Aronov's deleted files[edit]

Hi Martin, I saw that all photos and audios of Aron Aronov (tenor) are deleted. (Aron Aronov.jpg ; Aron Aronov.ogg and ... 2 others) https://bg.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%90%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BD_%D0%90%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2

Aron Aronov is a bulgarian legendary opera-operetta singer. He is off stage now. I think that it's good for students and opera fans if there are some photos and audio in the Wiki. There is no problem with license, because all these photos are made of his family (wife, daughter and me (a friend of them)). I've done his Wiki, Facebook and Youtube profiles. You can verify this info by Aronov's e-mail: aronaronov@abv.bg or his facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aron.aronov?fref=ts or .. mobile: +359888361759 What should I do(or send to you) for returning back the deleted files? Regards, Nadya Toska7(talk)

Sure there is a problem with licensing. You uploaded files with false author information (your "own work") and I think even now you not provide the correct author information. The copyright belongs to the photographer, not to the subject of the photo or the subjects relatives. The photographer has to agree to a free license . --Martin H. (talk) 18:21, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Fotos Horacio de Eguia[edit]

Hola,

He visto que en 2010 eliminaste las fotos que puse en el artículo de https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horacio_de_Egu%C3%ADa. Lamentablemente he estado mucho tiempo a volver a entrar y ahora lo he visto, por lo que querría hacerlo bien esta vez.

Las fotos son propias, por lo que creo que he gestionado correctamente los derechos. Podrías mirar si lo he hecho bien y en qué me he equivocado?

Muchas gracias.

You claimed the photos are the uploders "own work" but provided the name of an artist who died 1991. Thats impossible. You should not use the "its my own work" option in the upload wizard but the "its someone else work" option and provide a source. This authors work are in copyright untill the year 2062 i guess, so you need to provide the copyright owners written permission to a free license. --Martin H. (talk) 20:39, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Martin H.

As I am unfamiliar with the Wikipedia protocols I do not understand your message entirely. I believe you are requesting proof that I have a legal right to upload and use the photograph I placed in the Leo Felton article. Briefly, I do have that right, and I can prove it. How do I go about providing that information?

Permission question[edit]

Martin H:

I have an email from the owner and copyright holder of the photograph I uploaded to the article on Leo Felton, AKA Leo Oladimu. Mr. Oladimu is currently incarcerated at a United States Federal Penitentiary, and therefore, it is not always easy to reach him. I am waiting for him to send me a statement, releasing the photograph to me for use in the Wikipedia article. In the meanwhile, is this image of his email acceptable?

It sure is – it is an integrated part of a 170 meter long glass wall. But I understand that wasn't obvious as I published the close-up before other pictures. Thanks! /Mickeno (disk) 22 april 2014 kl. 13.03 (CET)

EPA gave the statement you requested. I sent it to the Wikicommons Permission department. Can you please unblock Heleenmees2.jpg?

User:Tc1591[edit]

Servus, Du hattest den User vor langer Zeit wegen massiver URV gesperrt. Er lädt URVen auf seinen Flickraccount, um sie dann mit Bezug zu eben dieser Quelle in die Wikiprojekte hochzuladen. Wir haben aktuell das Problem auf :de über den Umweg eines anderen Users. Nun ist mir aufgefallen, das auf :en das Uploaden mit dem Account en:User:Tc1591 munter weiter geht. Vielleicht hast Du einen Draht zu den englischsprachigen Kollegen? Gute Grüße diba (talk) 19:50, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Following on from this I just transferred from enwiki File:Borja Golán 2013.jpg by the same user and then noticed that you deleted Category:Squash players from Spain due to flickr washing. I can't see that this image has another source, but I see that they are blocked here and a vast array of Squash related images have been deleted. I'm now not sure if this file should be deleted per the resolution to Commons:Deletion requests/File:Borja Golán.JPG.... I think I might have to investigate the rest of the images are enwiki- Peripitus (talk) 04:19, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Looking further I've tagged all of the transwiki'd images here for deletion, deleted of the self-made uploads on enwiki, and blocked him there - Peripitus (talk) 08:11, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Images recently uploaded[edit]

The site says "La información disponible en el sitio web www.congreso.es es susceptible de reutilización y es puesta a disposición del público sin sujeción a condiciones." (Rough translation: The data available in the www.congress.es website is susceptible of reuse and is made available to the public without being subject to conditions). So it says it is public. Furthermore, the criteria explained after that just say, all in all, that the source must be cited (I cited it), that the content of the data is not altered or denatured (refering more to texts and Congress speechs, mainly), that the last update date is mentioned (I did mentioned it in all images) and that it is used for a public use and not in "an exclusive way". I don't know which license should I use in this case because I believe there is not an specific one for this site (just as the {{PD-SpanishGov}}, {{PD-La Moncloa}} and {{PD-La Moncloa New}} are available for Spain). That's why I used that generic one (in hopes that some more experienced user could help out). So, if with this info the images are still unfit for Wikipedia Commons then delete them (I'll gladly proceed to revert all changes I made using these files), but tell me please where is the issue in the www.congreso.es legal note so I can know. Cheers if you can help out. Impru20 (talk) 13:26, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

There cant be a specific template because the files are not public domain or freely licensed. The conditions for beeing free are written down at Commons:Project scope#Required licensing terms, modification of the content must be allowed. --Martin H. (talk) 13:30, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok, so that seems to be the case here. Sorry about that, I didn't know that in addition to being public they needed to be able to be modified as well. Then please delete all of these images (they all can be found in the Spanish Congress of Deputies image profiles Category), and I will revert the changes I made. Cheers. Impru20 (talk) 13:40, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
I have marked all images with the {{copyvio}} tag so they can be more easily detected and deleted in a speedily fashion, in order to prevent them from generating further issues. Cheers. Impru20 (talk) 14:56, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

File:TaoLA130224.jpg[edit]

Hi Martin, you deleted the file for copyvio reasons and mentioned e.g. this link. That blogpost was created on 07/29/13. I can't check the source information anymore, but the revision history of the English Wikipedia shows that the picture was added on 07/20/13. So one should expect that the blog copied the picture from commons. What are the other sources? And what was the licensing information, the user had provided? Thanks for clarification and kind regards, --NiTenIchiRyu (talk) 06:01, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Photo usage[edit]

Hello, an image of Janet Jackson was recently deleted saying it wasn't free content. It was taken from Dreamstime.com, where the usage terms permit a "lifetime granted" royalty free photo "for commercial usages", which "may be used to make fine art prints, on a web site, in a magazine, newspaper, book or booklet, book cover, flyer, application software (apps) or any other advertising and promotional material, in either printed or electronic media." Under these terms, it says the photo can freely be used for commercial usage on websites and electronic media. Can the photo be reuploaded or undeleted? User5482 (talk)

No it cant. The license offered there is a royalty-free license. This means the reuser (licensee) has to pay one-time and can reuse forever. That license agreement is an agremment between the licensor (dreamstime) and the licensee, it is not transferable. So only one person who licensed the image under that conditions for money can reuse the file as you describe, he cant allow others to reuse the file. On Commons we require free reuse for anyone, without asking and without paying. If you pay the license you can use the file, you cant allow others to reuse the file (transfer the license or sublicense). Even if the Wikimedia Foundation pays the money and becomes the licensee we still cant host the file because still it is not considered free content. --Martin H. (talk) 00:48, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok. Would I be able to upload it to Wikipedia only (not Commons) and use it that way, without allowing others to use it since I hold the rights to the license? User5482 (talk)
Only for a limited purpose i.e. if the photography has an iconic status or if the photo itself is subject to public commentary, see en:Wikipedia:Non-free_content#Images. That requirements are not fulfilled. --Martin H. (talk) 01:33, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes but I have the license to upload the image and use it on Wikipedia for commercial usage, it wouldn't be an image taken without prior permission or approval. Doesn't that allow me the exclusive rights to use it for display purposes, which would be subject to commentary about the artist in question? User5482 (talk)
If you payed the money and entered a license agreement with that website, then you cant upload the file here. You can not give the operator of Wikipedia - the Wikimedia Foundation - the right to reuse the file (transfere of license). You can not allow others to reuse the file. Wikimedia projects are free content projects. The requirement for including content in Wikipedia is that that content is free! Anyone, every person or company, must be able to download the content from Wikipedia and reuse it for whatever they want. You have 760 edits in Wikipedia, so realy it is time for you to read what the free in Free Encyclopedia means. --Martin H. (talk) 13:34, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Block of Allesmüller and Bunkerfunker[edit]

Hi, you have blocked @Allesmüller: for abusing multiple accounts, and @Bunkerfunker: for being a suspected sock of Allesmüller. The issue has been raised here. Can you please elaborate on how the conclusion that both editors are one in the same was reached. Both editors seem to have been productive and I can see no public SPI being performed, or even notification to either editor that their editing was of concern. I've looked at both editors contributions, and I'm not seeing anything that jumps out that would indicate they are the same person. Can you please give further information on why these two editors were blocked, because I am at the moment somewhat inclined to unblock them both. russavia (talk) 02:12, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your response at the request, I see how these might now be linked -- I missed the now deleted edit from January. It does concern me a little that there is nothing public on this project, such as an SPI case, or is there? russavia (talk) 13:54, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
For this case there is no on-wiki information. --Martin H. (talk) 13:57, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Do you think it might be a good idea if we were to begin to require case pages for such investigations? If you were to disappear tomorrow, we wouldn't have any idea why they were blocked -- at least with a case page, the entire community will be able to see what occurred. Thoughts? russavia (talk) 15:49, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
A case page at the checkuser-wiki seems more appropriate to me than a page on a public wiki. Jcb (talk) 16:10, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Jcb is right, from a case page you will see only what you can see in the logs, you will not see the checkuser details. So the CU-wiki and mailing lists are the right place to share infos and get a second opinion. I however rarely use CU-wiki because I dont see the procedural and legal questions of that wiki implemented in meta:CheckUser_policy#Privacy_policy. With legal questions I refer to insufficient information for CUs how to deal with the data they obtained. Under german law (de:Personenbezogene_Daten#Deutschland) i have an obligation for diligent care of this data and i dont know if I comply with this obligation when spreading the data in certain places. Thats why I only write IPs in mails when necessary. --Martin H. (talk) 16:34, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
I am talking not about IPs, but about actual "editors" (account names). There's no reason why a case page couldn't be created for initial CU investigations right here on this project. It would also then give suspected sockpuppeteers a chance to provide input as well (if necessary). Thoughts on that? russavia (talk) 17:37, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Sounds bureaucratic, if duplicating request pages from other projects (de.wp in this case) for cross-wiki issues is meant or repetition of thoughts mentioned at CU-l by other checkusers. --Martin H. (talk) 19:10, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Dear Martin,

Is this DR a speedydelete case. Everything about this upload is wrong. There is no picture on the weblink and the name of the source account is wrong. This is also the uploaders only image on Commons. It is a very strange case. If it is the image could be deleted as a speedy delete. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 04:45, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Mir gefällt die falsche Angabe nicht, nach der der hochladende der Fotograf sein soll. --Martin H. (talk) 13:07, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
The file should be deleted because of copyright violation. The original picture: http://kraljaleksandar.deviantart.com/art/Kaiser-and-his-great-grandson-191753128. Please have a look at the same name KraljAleksandar.--79.238.170.56 22:16, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the hint. Deviantart username is Commons uploader username, maybe wrong but who knows. The file on Deviantart however is tagged as photomanipulation. In any case the deviantart user is not the original photographer. Seems like someone is trying to build a hoax around this photo (see sequence of edits [12] [13] in de.wp) --Martin H. (talk) 03:33, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

User:Srecan[edit]

Dear Martin.H as required for the image was part of an exhibition of the teacher Mario Fantini below the link oj the performance, http://www.lapergolaarte.it/Artisti.asp?id=121 Regards, Srecan — Preceding unsigned comment added by Srecan (talk • contribs)

The question is about two things:
  • The author. Aou are apparently not the painter of the paintings that you uploaded. Seems like the information in the filed "author" is wrong.
  • Copyright. Copyright expires 70 years following the painters death, for uploading a painting here it is required that the painter agreed to the free licensing.
--Martin H. (talk) 03:45, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

the right permision[edit]

If i know that the image was given to the media in conference, what permission i should use, what i should say to prevent it from deletion?

File:PaulBromberg.jpg[edit]

Why did you deleted the photography of Paul Bromberg? It cames from a source supported by the licence Creative Commons 3.0: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

Regards, --JuanCamilo (talk) 15:45, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

@JuanCamilo: Regretably that is not true. The license of the source is "Licencia Creative Commons Atribución-NoComercial-SinDerivadas 3.0 Unported." In our basic instructions and in our project scope, see Commons:Project_scope/es#T.C3.A9rminos_de_licencia_no_permitidos, it is explicitely mentioned that such unfree content - not free for commercial reuse, not free for modification - is not permited on Commons.
A second point is, the "photography" is a screenshot from a video, its the thumbnail of the video "Este es la videocolumna de Paul Bromberg" which is not even hosted on the source website http://www.dooin.co. Therefore the videoscreenshot is not licensed under any license that is mentioned on http://www.dooin.co but under the licensing of the original publisher which is not known and therefore unlicensed and not ok to use without asking the original publisher. --Martin H.
