Does the comment "as above" refers to the file being FoP or the photo showing a small enough part of a work of art to be considered a work of art? /Hangsna (talk) 11:23, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Deleted Pictures - Copyright violation[edit]

Hello Yann

As per your messages from recent days, I have began the process to obtain the proper license agreements from the copyright holders to the indicated e-mail "" but the e-mail keeps getting rejected. Please advice in regards of how to proceed. Thank you.--Juancescritor (talk) 22:38, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

@Juancescritor: Hi,
Once the permission is received, the images will be undeleted by the OTRS volunteers. There is a big backlog, so it takes time. Reagrds, Yann (talk) 09:23, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Yann,

The OTRS request was emailed on Thu, Dec 11, 2014 for the file [1]. Didn't get any reply and now it's deleted. How should we proceed?

Asking help[edit]

Hello Yann. How do I know if a site uses the correct copyright license or not? (such as I am a novice. Regards Hananeh.M.h

@Hananeh.M.h: Hi,
The issue here is not that the license is not correct, but that the site is not the owner of the pictures. A license can only be given by the copyright owner. Hope that helps. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:20, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
So how do I know which site is actually owner of the image (in general). Hananeh.M.h
@Hananeh.M.h: Hi,
There is no absolute rule, but if the image was previously published elsewhere with another credit, there is a good chance that the website is not the owner of the image. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:31, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi,Can I ask you the images of my article will be returned or not?Hananeh.M.h
@Hananeh.M.h: Hi,
Probably not. Sorry. The copyright of these images belongs to press agencies, who very rarely give a permission. Some Wikipedias (including the English language one) allow local upload under a fair use rationale. See w:Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:28, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@Yann: Can you help me to find images for that article?Hananeh.M.h

Deleted content needed[edit]

There's a question at the en:wp help desk about File:Joan Maynard and Sam Jackson.jpg; the uploader says basically "what more information do I need to provide". I can't give a solid answer without seeing what the uploader gave in the first place. Would you leave me a talkpage note with the copy-pasted contents of this file's description page? Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 21:20, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

@Nyttend: This is the image from [2]. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:24, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Also, the uploader says "I uploaded several images", but all I can find are the deleted one, File:John W. Cooper and his Barbershop Routine.jpg, and File:John W. Cooper and Samuel Jackson.png. Could you give me the Barbershop Routine description, as well as the descriptions of any other images that have been deleted? Nyttend (talk) 21:22, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

This is [3], from [4]. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:26, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, but that's not quite what I meant. Could you copy/paste the contents of the description page to a place that I can access? Nyttend (talk) 00:12, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
OK, done on your talk page. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:24, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello sir, i have a small doubt.....i think all the images are there in one or many other its difficult to upload any image? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qscvb (talk • contribs) 09:24, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@Qscvb: Hi,
Yes, unless you have a permission from the photographer, only upload your own images. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)


I don't know of any program which does it, but there's no reason why the PNG couldn't theoretically accommodate EXIF (or any other arbitrary binary metadata). Found with a little searching. The main problem is establishing a standard so that different programs could intercommunicate with each other (see for one proposal). AnonMoos (talk) 12:01, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello Yann. On File:P.J.M. Verschure groter.jpg Amsterdam City archive claims "Non-copyright restrictions". It seems I've already pissed them off and they've threatened to send me a bill for the use of it. So that's why I nominated for speedy deletion. I'm sure the image will be back someday, but not by me Face-wink.svg. Any chance of a speedy now you know this? Thanks, Sander1453 (talk) 10:25, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

@Sander1453: I reuploaded it, and deleted the old version. I hope it is OK like this. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:30, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Yann. Can I rename it, so that the link I mailed them doesn't work anymore? Regards, Sander1453 (talk) 12:51, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Résolution Copyvio du fichier Château de Houetteville[edit]

Bonjour Yann,

Je viens de suivre (en tous cas je l'espère...) les préconisations relatives au maintien de l'image citée en référence, notamment l'envoi d'un courrier électronique auprès de l'OTRS, dont la copie se trouve en page de discussion du fichier. Si d'aventure il manquait quelque chose, je suis tout à fait disposé à m'exécuter.

Je m'étonne cependant de cet avertissement, le "double-emploi" de mes images étant chose courante depuis plusieurs années. C'est la raison pour laquelle l'autorisation fournie au travers de ce courrier électronique s'étend à toutes les images ainsi utilisées, en provenance des pages du site Panoramio dont je suis l'auteur, que l'on trouve à l'adresse suivante :

Bien cordialement, et bon dimanche. Gregofhuest (talk) 14:31, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

File:Toyota logo.png[edit]

Hi, you deleted File:Toyota logo.png, and closed the DR as "kept as above". I think I get what this means (= you kept the SVG), but it might require a quick fix on COM:VPC#Clarification_of_PD-textlogo_rules by somebody who's bolder than I feel at the moment. –Be..anyone (talk) 04:19, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Image of giovannipaolo II[edit]

Hi, Yann: This image is in my property, because I'm the only heir of the author of the painting Portrait of Giovanni Paolo II: Anchise Picchi. All the images in Internet are posted by myself. Anchise Picchi, died in 2007, was my uncle, and I'm the only heir of all his works.

The same is valid for Our Ldy of Pisa.

Your sincerely. Lido Pacciardi

Lpacciar (talk) 08:16, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

@Lpacciar: Hi,
For all documents published elsewhere previously or created by other people than the uploader, a permission is necessary. A simple email to would do. Please see COM:OTRS for the details. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:02, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

File:Vidya Balan holding Apsara trophy.jpg[edit]

Yann, you removed the {{No permission since}} tag I added to File:Vidya Balan holding Apsara trophy.jpg. How did you determine BolywoodHungama had the right to CC release the Apsara Film and Television Producers Guild Awards? As I understand it the {{Cc-by-3.0-BollywoodHungama}} license tag is only valid for Bollywood Hungama parties or events (as I noted on the notice on the uploader's talk page). Have I misunderstood the scope of the OTRS permission? —RP88 (talk) 22:55, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Because it meets the criteria defined by Hungama: all images from their website taken in India, except screenshots, wallpapers, vacation pictures, or promotional posters and similar exceptions. Regards, Yann (talk) 22:58, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
OK, so when the license tag says it is only applicable to "Bollywood Hungama parties/events", this is not actually a condition for CC release that BolywoodHungama mentions in their OTRS ticket, it's just a clarification added by a Commons volunteer to avoid COM:DW issues? —RP88 (talk) 23:02, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
I think all Awards ceremonies are included in the "events". Regards, Yann (talk) 23:12, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Since I can't read the OTRS ticket I thought the license applied to "Bollywood Hungama parties and Bollywood Hungama events", not "Bollywood Hungama parties and all other events". Thanks for checking the OTRS ticket for me. —RP88 (talk) 23:15, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Considering that I have asked for deletion of every file ever uploaded by me, I see little reason to discuss individual images. --Palnatoke (talk) 08:52, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

@Palnatoke: Hi,
Thank you for your answer. As Fastily said there, it doesn't work that way, but I will take your opinion into account. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:11, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Řevnice, méně je někdy více.jpg[edit]

I disagree that the work is on display permanently. It might have been there for a long stretch of time (for which we only have an editors say so), the entire duration of the works lifespan, and in particular that of the photograph used in the billboard, will continue indefinite. It is thus not free from copyright restrictions under FOP. Vera (talk) 21:18, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

How do you know that? If the uploader says that it displays permanently, I would believe it, unless you have a proof showing the opposite. Regards, Yann (talk) 21:19, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Cautionary principle puts the burden on the uploaded, and as I just explained photographs can't be permanently displayed during the entire duration of their natural life since that is not in the nature of photographic works. Vera (talk) 23:48, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
First you have a wrong understanding of the precautionary principle. This requires deletion if there is some doubt. Looking at the evidence here, there is no reason to doubt what the uploader is saying. Second you need to read again the whole FoP page. There is no "nature of photographic works" principle. This is a road sign sponsored by a commercial entity, it is quite common nowadays, and there is no reason to think that it is a temporary installation. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:56, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Even if the billboard is there for 50 years, the artwork still isn't on display permanently since photographs can exist in perpetuity. Besides that, it very much looks like a billboard. Just taking a user's word for it that it isn't, is reckless. --Vera (talk) 12:04, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
You didn't even understand or answer what I wrote above... Beside, your sentence doesn't make sense in itself. Yann (talk) 12:30, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Perso, je pense qu'il n'y a pas vraiment de raison de supprimer cette image. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:39, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
super! peux-tu expliquer cela au demandeur? la communication s'est un peu brouillée entre lui et moi... --Madelgarius (talk) 18:42, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Je lui ai déjà mis un mot.
@Madelgarius: J'évite quand même d'importer des images des années 1940s en France copiées sur le Web, sans au moins une preuve qu'elles ont été publiées sans mention de l'auteur. Les règles de Commons sont à mon avis un peu trop strictes, mais comme il y a un consensus dans ce sens, il faut faire avec. Le mieux est de trouver un vieux livre où l'image a été publiée. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:44, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
