Re: Bogus deletion request[edit]

Hi, in the link that you provided I read:

"Any other use (such as using images for personal or corporate gain) require permission from Greenpeace International Photo and Video Library (contact information appears below)."

So, the license is not compatible with Commons license conditions, since there should be no restriction of use for commercial purposes. You affirm that you got in touch with Greenpeace and they agreed. It that is the case, you should go through this process to get that agreement offizialised. --Poco a poco (talk) 21:29, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Greenpeace images[edit]

I rang Greenpeace and they said that their images can be used for Wikipedia. Their Copyright rules are very clear. How dare someone delete images from Greenpeace based on a bogus copyright agreement which does not even exist!! I am very upset that these images have been deleted for no reason. They are Greenpeace1.jpg and Greenpeace2.jpg. Please restore them and the pages that they were used on. I don't want a debate about this. There is no debate. Thank you.

By the way, Greenpeace will write officially to Wikipedia and inform Wikipedia that can use all Greenpeace images. So I do not expect this sort of treatment again against Greenpeace or me. Wallie (talk) 15:55, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I understand that you are frustrated by the deletion of these 2 files but the rules are the rules, and as long as there is nothing else than that webpage from Greenpeace these files don't belong to this project. The licenses are not compatible although to you it could look like the Greenpeace license are generous enough. Actually, they are more generous than most licenses but not generous enough for Wikimedia (sorry!!).

Anyhow, if Greenpeace gets in touch with the coleagues from Commons:OTRS and agree on the terms of the Wikimedia lincense for their media, the problem would not only be solved, but in addition it would be a great step for the project!. If you want to look for a second opinion, please, pick up an administrator from this list, they all know the licenses and policies very good, and could actually restore the files. I cannot do that because I don't have admin rights. Regards, --Poco a poco (talk) 19:10, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

I am sorry to hear that. It is not about me or my mood, or even the supporters, but rather the rules of the game, and respecting the licenses is probably the most important rule in Commons. Poco a poco (talk) 21:25, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
