Hi Yann,

Why did you delete all the Marlene Harnois pictures when I own the pictures and uploaded them???

Please make the proper changes because i can not even upload them again since you have removed it and the content is flag!

Thank you,

@Marleneharnois: Bonjour,
Etant donné que vous êtes le sujet de ces photos, vous n'êtes pas par défaut le détenteur des droits, qui est le photographe. C'est pourquoi une permission est nécessaire. Voyez COM:OTRS/fr pour la procédure. N'hésitez pas à me demander si vous avez besoin d'aide, ou des questions. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 12:15, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

@Maradoro: Hi,
No problem with your English. ;o) For old pictures of personalities like these, a permission is better. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure (or COM:OTRS/it in Italian). The pictures can be restored once the permission is received. Please ask if you need help, or have questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:19, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yann,

I am writing in regards to the file I uploaded TNL Onstage.png it's the logo of the event on the article. If I get the permission email from the organization that created it to release it to the public domain is it just a matter of forwarding it or is there anything additional involved? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Suhirthanjk (talk • contribs)

Possibly scanned books material[edit]

Hi, I ckecked recently some of the contributions made by User Varing and found out that a lot of them seems to be taken from books (scanned book material), as the pictures quality is rather poor when their size is what I would describe as ok... I think that we should take a closer look and, why not, delete any files that have copyright problems... --Glorious 93 (talk) 13:56, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I corrected some of the descriptions and licenses, et I put him a message. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:19, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Gretna Green[edit]

Bonjour, j’ai mis en téléchargeant ces trois images toutes les indications possibles, il n’y a rien de significatif au verso des cartes et il n’y a pas de signature du peintre, une recherche sur le net dit que cette série (les Oilette sont par séries de six mais pas toujours, et celle-ci semble être de quatre, il me manque la première, The Start) est mentionnée dans les catalogues de 1911 à 1914, sans mention de l’auteur ; et que dans les années 40 une bombe est tombée sur la maison Tuck en détruisant tous les stocks. Pour tout dire, j’ai cru un bref instant que ce pouvait être Gilbert Wright (qui signait, lui) et qui est mort presque centenaire, donc pas encore domaine public. Mais très clairement, ce n’est pas lui. Voilà tout ce que je peux dire. La parole est au ministère public. --Morburre (talk) 17:38, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

@Morburre: Bonjour,
Cela serait utile de mentionner tout cela dans la page de discussion. Vu que le scan ne crée pas un nouveau droit d'auteur, il vaudrait mieux utiliser pour la licence {{PD-art-two|PD-UK-unknown|PD-1923}}. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 14:23, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Mass deletion[edit]

Many of your requests are not based on any legal rationale. This only creates more work for already very busy admins, and makes other contributors angry. You need to be more careful when creating DRs. This is a warning. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:41, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Yann. You're wrong. Many files deleted. This is a warning for angry contributors, cuz their illegal files deleted. I hope they'll be very careful when uploading an illegal file. Thanks for your connection... Vikiçizer (talk) 16:15, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
@Vikiçizer: Sorry, but no. You are wrong. Some files were deleted, but many were kept. This critic doesn't come from the files uploaders, but from me, an experienced admin. You need to change your evaluation, or there will be problems. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:11, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
OK, I understood. 98% of the files deleted, maybe more. U can check my contributions but it does not matter, I will not create DR serial. No problems. No privileges. Thanks for message. Regards...Vikiçizer (talk) 21:17, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Help for restoration and transferring images to the appropriate category[edit]

Hello, as you can see in Commons:Village pump#"Female_humans" the misunderstanding about the category Category:Female humans is resolved. I opened a new category Category:Temporary categories for User:Chenspec Cat-a-lot - Female humans and I want to transfer all images cataloged in Category:Female humans that were removed from it. Is there an automated way to do this without going one by one?, I put a lot of time and a that is a huge amount of images ... Thanks Chenspec (talk) 20:45, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

@Chenspec: ✓ Done with 583 edits, should be every file in your contributions history that you added to 'Female humans' with Cat-a-lot, based on the auto-generated edit summary. Revent (talk) 22:23, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Muti _Vital_plastic card[edit]

Dear Yann!

22/02/2015 I load up to the Wikimeida:Comons two photos of a plastic card received at the Multi_Viral promoconcert of Calle 13 in Madrid on 20/07/2014. This card was part of the payed enter ticket and avery card had a uniq code number which served to one-off download of the album Multi Viral from internet. I would like to reamarked, that I have participated at this concert and this card is my property, beacuse I have bought it, as any other cinema or thater ticket.

After I was ready with my articel Multi_Vital, I wanted to illustrate it with the copy of this plastic card. The secret code on the back side I made unrecognazible, howerever the down load termnin expierd some month again and the same code can't be use again.

15/02/2015 User:Ellin Beltz editor of Wikimedia Commons has created a en:A Voszi/Talk subpage and wared me, that both file can be deleted, but it depends on voting of other users. Same time he appointed mi to another page where I and other users can explain their arguments about the using of these files (BTW, actualliy ther are till now only my entries to this question.).

Today I opened the artical Multi_Viral and I was very surpride, becasue the back side photo of the plastic card has been removed from the article but the front side one reamain. And all this without any voting and notification, there are any new comments on the talk page of these file.

I would appreciate if I received some help and explication abaout using of fotos (pictures, portaits, etc.) in Wikimedia:Comon, especaily, that the Hungarian Copyright Low is different from that in Brittain and USA. I would like to notice, that this contradiction of using copy-righted media files between the USA and Britain can cause many problems for the foreign editors. For example I have written articals about each studioalbum of the group Calle 13, and all their album covers are available in the Miedia:Commos. But all the same time I had every time to asked a special permition from the provider for using these covers, because the "fair usage" is limited to the contries mentioned above and aren't applicable in other countries.

And now some questions:

  1. Why are thies photos inappropiate (or illegal) in Wikimedia?
  2. Why has been deleted the back side of the plastic card but the first one hasn't?
  3. May couse any problem the logo of the Calle 13 on this card? It can be see on the front side too! (It is so, I can show hundreds of Wkipedia pages, which contain registred trademarks and logos [of course, with permisson of the owner] and photos of the products labeled by the same tradmark of the same company, in the same artikel, without any extra permisson.)

Thanks! A Voszi (talk) 11:06, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

@A Voszi: Hi,
Please read COM:DW. The front side is clearly a derivative work of the card. The back side may be de minimis. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:16, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Giving me warnings, threatening me, saying I'm copyrighting[edit]

I did nothing wrong I did NOT steal other people's work I gave credit, cites, and sources of correct and valid information to every picture I contributed and every page I contributed to. Do not threaten me. I did not violate anything. Instead of wasting your time with someone following the rules, use it for more appropriate things, such as removing user who DO violate terms. There was only 1 photo that I recall not citing correctly, as it was the first time I ever used the website and it would not let me edit and fix my mistake after it. All my other 3 photographs were accurate. I am a normal person and user like you. Realize that and have a good day. Thank you.

File:Lindt bunny.jpg[edit]

Hi Yann,

It may be a bit tedious, however refreshing my mind as to the deletion and undel discussions, the copyright of any *specific* Lindt bunny design was not actually addressed. Instead the undel appears to hinge on quotes from a generic legal pursuit of any use of gold foil wrapped traditional bunnies. The particular images has several copyrightable elements, not just the design of the chocolate shape, but the printing on the foil, such as the eye, ear lobe and logo. There seems sufficient to have a specific deletion review in a way that was previously taken on a tangent.

Do you have strong objections for taking this for another ride? Thanks -- (talk) 23:56, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I have objections. Fæ, you should look after real problems, not playing games and trying to undermine the system. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:34, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
You are making clearly bad faith personal allegations, so there seems little point in canvassing your view on whether it is helpful properly to determine copyright in these cases. I am sorry you are not prepared to act collegiately. -- (talk) 12:36, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

I reverted your user page[edit]

Someone was either test editing or made a problem of your user page, so I took the liberty of reverting it for you. I like your Enlightenment quotation too much not to see it! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 04:59, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes i do have question[edit]

Hi Yann,

I was wondering then how that this logo is used here: en:File:Brooklyn_Botanic_Garden_(logo).png

I uploaded it on purpose solely because of this to see how wikipedian copyright policy worked, does making the image smaller apply?

WRT Commons:Deletion requests/File:PikiWiki Israel 38189 Cloudy sky-a tree in the snow- on the road to the .jpg is it really worth keeping given that after it is rotated and cropped correctly the image will be of very little use?
