- To have any deleted image restored you simply have to open an undelete request explaining why in your opinion the deletion was not justified. The page is here http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Undeletion_requests and you find it referred to in any deletion logs.
- The reason to delete this image is that the statue is the work of a contemporary artist, Nina Akamu, who inspired herself to Leonardo's horse, but it is not a copy of the horse. Whatever the inspiration, she is the actual author. This is not a cast (in which case there would be no problem) but a 3d rendering of something that before she sculpted it did not exist. It is even questionable whether it is right to call it a "Leonardo"'s horse.
- Although Akamu donated the statue, the copyright belongs to her. A permission by her is requested to put the image under a free license. In case she donated the intellectual rights to the Comune di Milano, it is the Comune who should give the permission. In case the copyright was donated to the public domain, such in the following case, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Chicago_Picasso , the donation should be documented. In fact, the copyright by default always belongs to the artist for the mere fact of creating the work of art, and after his/her death to his heirs for 70 years. The artist needs not to file any request to obtain the copyright, this is a right that come with the very act of creation.
- The fact of shooting and donating the images is relevant, since you own the copytight on that image and you may in fact donate it, but does not change the fact that you only own the actual picture, not the copyright on the statue.
- The fact of the statue being in a public place does not affect what I said, since Italy has no Freedom of panorama in its laws books. In Germany or in the Netherlands it would, but the two copies of this statue are in Italy and the Usa, neither of which allows Freedom of panorama for statues.
I hope what I answered to be "sensible" :-) --User:G.dallorto 15:04, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
- It was... at least sensible enough for me :-). Thanks a lot for your elaborate response! Guess it shows I shouldn’t trust my limited knowledge about the subject and "intuition" when it comes to (international) copyright laws. Thanks again. --Van helsing 15:29, 19 January 2008 (UTC) (note to self: some background info)
