Copyright violation[edit]

Is this public domain?[edit]

Main gallery: Commons:Deletion requests/File:MN Stockholm.jpg.

Hi, May I request your opinion? File:MN Stockholm.jpg is a postcard issued by the Swedish American Line, based in Göteborg. The PD-Italy tag used by the uploader is probably inapplicable, as it is unlikely that the image was first published in Italy. But, as it was probably first published in Sweden, would it meet the conditions of PD-Sweden-photo? I am not familiar with the conditions of that tag. -- Asclepias (talk) 01:16, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

User:Denniss nominated the file for deletion, so I replied in the deletion discussion. --Stefan4 (talk) 13:12, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion nomination for Trinidad and Tobago and Guyanese passports[edit]

Can you provide justification for the nomination for the deletion of these images? These images in no way violate any copyright laws of Wikipedia have been composed by me (Saltprune416). If Wikipedia and further users like yourself continue this modus operandi, pretty soon I will remove all my contributions to this website as it goes against fair inclusion and contribution to the tenets of this database. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saltprune416 (talk • contribs) 2014-07-12T15:17:46‎ (UTC)

The uploader claims to have designed the passports, but has not provided any evidence that this is the case. Passports are typically created by governments. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:24, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

There isn't any claim on design. The image like thousands of others on Wikipedia were taken and are fair use. Images of scenery are not designed by the photographer, the same way an image of a passport is simply a depiction of an object that exists by said photographer. Passports are indeed owned by governments, but a search on the majority of passport pages uploaded and complimentary photos show no evidence that they have been uploaded by either governments nor sourced from government websites. I'd like it if you highlight government contributions to the following pages and passports: Canadian, American, British, European Union passports etc.

Would it be better if I were to draw the passport as I see it then upload it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saltprune416 (talk • contribs) 2014-07-12T16:49:01 (UTC)

Fair use claims are not valid on Commons, see COM:FU. Non-free passports need permission from the government that created it. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:02, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Please give me some time to ask permission from the governments involved to use said images of the passport that are freely available online and to anyone with a camera to upload. Will respond momentarily. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saltprune416 (talk • contribs) 2014-07-12T17:12:15 (UTC)

If you obtain permission, make sure that the permission is usable by anyone. See COM:OTRS for instructions on where to send the permission for verification. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:34, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Puisque vous affirmez que les photos de passeports sont sujettes à autorisations préalables des gouvernements qui les délivrent, pouvez-vous m'indiquer quel loi/décret/arrêté... concerne les passeports que délivre l'Etat français. Merci d'avance. Cordialement. Barbe-Noire (talk) 12:51, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

RfC on the scope of file renaming criterion 2[edit]

Pursuant to the closing of the RFC "Proposed overhaul of the "Which files should be renamed?" section", a second RfC has been opened at Commons:Requests for comment/File renaming criterion 2 specifically to address the scope of criterion 2, which currently reads "To change from a completely meaningless name to a name that describes what the image displays." Since you participated in the initial discussion, I am notifying you of the follow-up RfC.

Please note that I fully anticipate that the first few days will see a number of additional options proposed, so it may be a good idea to check back periodically on the RfC.

Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)


I've re-activated that AN/U regarding your approach to DR. See 'Stefan4'.Ultra7 (talk) 14:59, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

A third opinion[edit]


Can I please have your opinion on this: File talk:Microsoft logo.svg#DOCTYPE. The discussion has started badly and I think a third opinion would definitely be needed.

Best regards,

Me gustaría que razonaras tus cambios. No entiendes que es un enlace muerto y nulo. --Parair (talk) 20:25, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

I stand corrected[edit]

Thank you for providing me with knowledge about the fact that the Swedish passport design is not, in fact, freely usable. I should have researched more about what rules apply to passports of this kind. Jag tackar för det...

Sibelius Monument[edit]

Thanks for the notification, I was not aware that Finnish copyright law is so strict as to forbid publishing photos of monuments on public spaces. Very strange. --FlavrSavr (talk) 14:26, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
