Hello Scott -
Assuming you are indeed the artist and photographer, there are a couple things you can do to help straighten out this situation. One of them is to read and follow the recommendations at Commons:OTRS regarding email confirmation of licensing and authorship. The other is to provide an indication on your website that you post to Commons under this username, or that the particular image is licensed appropriately, or both. Then report these developments on your undeletion request. Thanks for your contribution and hope this helps. Dankarl (talk) 21:18, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
This is a routine requirement when an image is previously published, even on your own website, and for professional artists and photographers in general, for your protection as well as to protect out end-users. I am sure you will understand that short of measures such as these we have no way to be sure that some third party has not stolen both your work and your name.

Undeleting Image(s)[edit]

I have sent an email. Now I just wait 5 plus days? Do I need to add something to my website also? If so what should it say and will it cover all images there as I think someone is trying to delete another image I own copyright to also.

Thanks, Scott Scott Wallace Johnston (talk) 01:39, 9 December 2013 (UTC) I have just added an indication on my website that I post to Commons under user name Scott Wallace Johnston as suggested by Dankarl.

The link is:http://www.scottjohnstonportraits.com/about.htm Is this enough proof?

Please remember to refresh if you don't see it.

ScottScott Wallace Johnston (talk) 01:39, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, that link serves as sufficient proof of your identity to validate your release of these images on Wikimedia Commons. By the way, you forgot to add licenses to File:Scott-Wallace-Johnston-Artist.jpg and File:Judge Charles Breyer official portrait United States District Court by Scott Johnston.jpg. -- King of ♠ 02:22, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! So is this issue resolved? Scott Wallace JohnstonScott Wallace Johnston (talk)

Yes. But I think you still have not added a license to File:Judge Charles Breyer official portrait United States District Court by Scott Johnston.jpg. -- King of ♠ 02:55, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
