Ryoji Ikeda Data.Tron images[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Transmediale-2010-Ryoji Ikeda-Data-Tron-1.jpg and File:Transmediale-2010-Ryoji Ikeda-Data-Tron-2.jpg. However, I think we would need OTRS confirmation from Ryoji Ikeda that he allows those pictures of his work to be released under a free license. Since you've been in contact with him, could you try to arrange that? I already linked to our standard boilerplate permission confirmation text from the DR page. Thanks, and feel free to ask me if you have any questions. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 21:39, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I don't have any problems doing this, but this is not right in terms of Copyright and/or Intellectual Property laws (regardless of the jurisdiction). The rights of these image are mine; not Ikeda's. Please enlighten me if I'm wrong. --Shervinafshar (talk) 18:02, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
They show his copyrighted work, don't they? That would make them derivative works. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 19:38, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
No. If I film the whole thing you would be right. These are just shots of one single frame of an audiovisual installation in an exhibition space where photography was allowed. Better example, music concerts are considered highly commercial copyrighted material, but this is fine, because it's a shot of the whole performance taken by someone who put it here. Also, in jurisdiction where the photo was taken, Freedom of Panorama does exist. Also, even in COM:DW it's mentioned that photos of artworks in public space are "derivative works, but they may be OK". An example of these types of photos can be found here. -- Shervinafshar (talk) 20:07, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
So you're claiming that they count as de minimis, then? I suppose they could be, although I believe the consensus on Commons has been that e.g. screenshots of movies don't count as de minimis, even though they show only one frame out of hundreds of thousands, since their main subject is still (a part of) a copyrighted work, and that part is still distinctive and original enough to be eligible for copyright on its own. As for the German Panoramafreiheit, I think it's been established in earlier discussions that it only applies to "works that are permanently located on public ways, streets or places", and in particular that it doesn't apply indoors.
(For live concert photos, the situation is a bit different, in that the live performance is not "fixed in a tangible medium" and therefore not subject to copyright (although it can be protected by related rights in some countries). However, it seems that your example image is in fact a photograph of a concert screen, and probably should be nominated for deletion; we've deleted quite a few similar images before.) —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 23:48, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
I think these can be considered as DM because none of them show even a full frame of the work. One shows less than one-twentieth of one frame and the other shows part of the projection wall. --Shervinafshar (talk) 18:40, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Flag of Montenegro[edit]

Regarding your question about the copyright status of File:Flag of Montenegro.svg, I have no problem changing the licence to public domain (in fact, some people said that it should be PD according to Montenegrin law). Thanks for your question! --B1mbo (talk) 18:09, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your response. I changed the license to PD and documented the change in the talk page of the image. --Shervinafshar (talk) 19:31, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
