Personality rights[edit]

Please make sure that you add {{Personality rights}} to portrays that you upload. It warns people that they cannot use this photo for eg. ads without permission of the person. (And BTW, the tag does not say that there is a problem with your picture.) --rtc (talk) 18:22, 9 November 2009 (UTC)


I added words to this effect some time back and it was deleted because Wikipedia does not allow "limited use" photos. Separate laws cover the issue you are discussing. Listing "personality rights" seems to be redundant.

Additionally, where exactly is "personality rights" displayed on the upload site? I have never seen it prior to your mentioning it.

The personality rights tag is an additional warning, not a license, so it is not listed on the upload site. You are right that laws separate from copyright cover the issue: personality rights. If you add these restrictions ("words to this effect") to your license (or write them in such a way that they can be misunderstood to be part of your license, by not using this ready-made tag), then, of course, the picture is going to be deleted, because then not merely the portrayed person could sue for ads use, but also you as the photographer, and we don't want that. The tag is necessary because people often misunderstand the copyright license as giving them permission to use the picture in any way they want, including for ads. --rtc (talk) 22:07, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Category:KUSI-TV[edit]

Just for your information: I created Category:KUSI-TV because of the high number of images that seemed to apply. I figured you would want to know about it, in case it applies to your studio photos or other relevant photos. (I added about 80 images to the category based on what images appeared to have "KUSI" and "San Diego" in them.) --Closeapple (talk) 10:46, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hello. Category:Marilyn Monroe has 8 subcategories, which means that File:Marilyn Monroe in Niagara.jpg only needs one. In the same way, Category:Phil Konstantin has 12 subcategories, which means that File:PhilKonstantinByPhilKonstantin.jpg only needs one. Unless of course you wish to add the name of the photographer or some other particular detail, as in File:PhilKonstantin.jpg. I hope this explanation makes sense.

Re: Vernix category[edit]

Hi Philkon,

This photo File:JazlynRoseVernixByPhilKonstantin.jpg is really usefull to show the vernix on the baby, but I am afraid, the category Vernix on Commons is a village in France and nothing to do with baby vernix. I recommanded you to create another category for the baby vernix. Sorry --Moonik (talk) 15:55, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Re: I have modified some of your photos into a "virtual reality" format[edit]

Hi Phil,

They are great! I looks them with pleasure. --Moonik (talk) 11:40, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Change of licenses[edit]

FYI, I've started a thread on the village pump (Commons:Village Pump#Changing PD to free license) regarding your recent changes from PD to cc-by-sa on some of your works. I can certainly understand why you would want to make such a change, but I'm not sure if that should be encouraged. Or if its even enforceable, you did put the works into the public domain.--Nilfanion (talk) 22:19, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't think you have done anything wrong, and are just trying to ensure your work is credited in the way you'd prefer. Its the general principle that's more of concern to me (re-licensing works in PD under more restrictive conditions). Your case is probably an acceptable example of such a change, but it may not be appropriate to do the same in all cases.--Nilfanion (talk) 23:58, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

File:WheelerPeakNevadaByPhilKonstantin.jpg[edit]

From the angle you took your picture from, you cannot actually see Wheeler Peak. Instead, the peak directly to the east of Wheeler, Jeff Davis Peak, is the one you see in your photo. Famartin (talk) 06:34, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
