They have a message granting Public Domain on their source pages. (At the bottom of each page).

Did you check?

I also already substituted this template in the right place-- {{PD-US}} in each image in the corrected area (I did the substituition in each case).

Also I do not have an institution (you said "your institution"). I am working by myself.

Thanks, Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:03, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

@Cliffswallow-vaulting: Hello,
Yes, I checked every file. There is no mention of "public domain", only "© Copyright February 21, 2001 Maryland State Archives". {{PD-US}} is only valid for old images, published before 1923 (read the template please). And "fair use" images are not accepted on Commons. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:14, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
You missed it. It is in the (middle of each page [at the bottom]).
It's inside a paragraph that says this:
"This information resource of the Maryland State Archives is presented here for fair use in the public domain. When this material is used, in whole or in part, proper citation and credit must be attributed to the Maryland State Archives. PLEASE NOTE: Rights assessment for associated source material is the responsibility of the user."
Thanks, :-)
Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:22, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
OK, but I think that this mention is misleading. A document can't be at the same time, in the public domain, and under a copyright by the Maryland State Archives. So basically, these documents can only be used under a fair use rationale. Sorry. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:29, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes it can, it's Public Domain but only if you acknowledge the source (if you don't acknowledge the source, only then is it copyrighted).
Look here, (I added a new bold-face to highlight it:
"This information resource of the Maryland State Archives is presented here for fair use in the public domain. When this material is used, in whole or in part, proper citation and credit must be attributed to the Maryland State Archives. PLEASE NOTE: Rights assessment for associated source material is the responsibility of the user."
That means, it's public domain, only as long as you give a citation (write in the caption and the image notes where the article came from. Otherwise, it's copyrighted).
Thanks, Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:34, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
What is a "fair use" rationale, and how does it work? Thanks, Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:56, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
It is an exception to copyright in US law, which is accepted on the English Wikipedia for some images. See en:fair use. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:00, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! But it does meet the fair use "tests"--
(From the section "Common misunderstandings" on the Fair use page-- Fair use
1) "First, it found the purpose of creating the thumbnail images"
(the images are all thumbnails-- the file info).
2) previews to be sufficiently transformative, noting that they were not meant to be viewed at high resolution like the original artwork was."
(The images all have reduced resolution from the originals--Wikipedia prompted me in each case, to choose the resolution, and in each case, I lowered the resolution below that of the originals).
3) "the photographs had already been published diminishing the significance of their nature as creative works."
(they are all already published on the Internet, as my eariler links showed).
4) "...the market for the original photographs would not be substantially diminished by the creation of the thumbnails."
(There is not market, they are on a state government website that is not selling anything).
5) "To the contrary, the thumbnail searches could increase exposure of the originals.
(That's right, they would).
"In looking at all these factors as a whole, the court found that the thumbnails were fair use"
(And the "St. Mary's College" images should be restored (undeleted) too, for the exact same reasons)
Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 08:32, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
I think I am right. Please ask undeletion on Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests‎, or ask a permission from the Maryland State Archives. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:46, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually you are right, here, it's very simple-- COM:FAIRUSE
Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 08:50, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
My sincere apologies, good night. Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 08:57, 25 March 2014 (UTC)


hello Yann, how are you doing?

im new to Wikicommons and still trying to understand how it works. Most of my articles on wikipedia are historical, thus I have no photos to use that were taken by me. Im having trouble understanding which photos from websites I can upload and which I can't. How can I tell between a free photograph and an owned one while im visiting a random historical website?

thanks, Nimrod. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ScottyNolan (talk • contribs)

@ScottyNolan: Hi,
Any modern picture or document has a copyright. Only those older than 120 years may be allowed without more information. For the rest, you need to check who is the author or photographer, and can be uploaded only if he/she is dead for more than 70 years. Please see COM:L for more details. For recent documents, you need to obtain a permission from the author copyright owner. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Do not hesitate to ask if you have other questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:21, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
thank you for the information,
I have contacted several websites in order to email their permit to use the pictures. Yet, I did not understand two things - the first is whether it is enough to email a one-time permittion of a site which I intend to use more than one photograph in its domain, meaning - is there a way to get a one-time permit to use all of a certain website photos?. the second, is whether an historical photograph/drawing taken from more than 120 years ago, but is published under a certain website which I cannot guarantee its free usage policy, will be OK to use or still needed permittion?
Thank you very much for the help,
@ScottyNolan: Hi,
1. The best is to list all pictures in one email, to avoid any confusion later.
2. If you are certain of the date of a picture, yes, you don't need a permission. Do not forget to mention all information in the description. Many images are deleted simply because the uploader didn't do that. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:10, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Copyright about images[edit]

Hi Yann,

Thank you for your feedback. The photos that I uploaded is what I screenshot from the Facebook page CityU Secrets. May I know how can I use these photos? Am I violating the copyright rules?

Thank you so much. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Reimgp1 (talk • contribs)

@Reimgp1: Hi,
Yes, these are copyright violations unless you have a permission from the photographer. To send a permission, see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:02, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reminders. But most of my screenshots are not owned by photographers, they are just postings on a Facebook page wall. What should I do if I want the permission?
So should I first delete the photos that I uploaded,and will my account be blocked?
Thank you again.
@Reimgp1: Hi,
Screenshots are copyrighted too. You need a permission from the company CityU Secrets. And please do not upload more of them before getting the permission, or you will be blocked. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:16, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Yann: Still trying to learn my way here. This Commons:Deletion requests/File:Torcida acendendo sinalizadores.jpg, I tagged because the image is overprinted and sourced to someone with no apparent connection to uploader and no way to verify the alleged permission given to use the photo any which way. I thought it was on the uploader to provide COM:EVID of any such licenses? Thanks for the clarity. Ellin Beltz (talk) 06:34, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Dear Yann, Thanks for your warning, please note I upload the media file, it is my prof. profile pic, taken from the college website. And the same is available on public domain. I would like to request you to kindly help me how to add the license. I am really confused on the same. Please help me. File:K-k-guin.JPG

Same for the File:Nettech-t10-lab-test-iiit-bbsr-2012.webm.

Sir! Merci beaucoup! --Ejensyd (talk) 17:43, 29 March 2014 (UTC)


Hi. Please note that File:Hajipntldhd3.png was not a copyright violation. The uploader granted reuse through a Creative Commons Attribution license under the About tab & Show more drop down menu. Also please see the approved File:Eastlhusmoh9.png for a similar situation. Regards, Middayexpress (talk) 16:16, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

OK, restored. There was no license review, so the confusion. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:40, 1 April 2014 (UTC)


(diff) "Images whose copyright was restored in the U.S. by the URAA are accepted at Wikimedia Commons" — I think we should still clarify that such files are not always implicitly allowed, they must be also be subject to the other regular Commons criteria like being in project scope as well as freely licensed in the source country they originate from for Commons to host them. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 15:30, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, obviously, they must satisfy all other criteria, but I think this is true for every file, so I don't see the need to explain that here. I don't have a strong opinion about this, I just think that it is not necessary. This is all the less necessary because URAA-affected files are usually historical, so they are probably in scope. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:35, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

URAA restoration and ENWP[edit]

I have been following the Commons URAA discussion that you closed today (thank you) and so I've suggested ENWP should follow the same policy, see en:WP:VPPR#Allow images previously disallowed because of URAA copyright restoration. I can't see any snags for the Wikipedias but can you? Thincat (talk) 20:26, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

@Thincat: Hi,
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by "snags". These files should be uploaded to Commons, not to En WP. I don't participate much in English WP, so I can't say much more. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:31, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Some people upload images to ENWP even when they could be stored on Commons. Often these files are later moved to Commons. The suggestion is to allow URAA-restored images to be on ENWP in the same way that they will be now on Commons. If we do not have the same policies files will tend to be moved to whichever project is more accepting. I think making the policy change on ENWP will be helpful but I was wondering if you could think of any disadvantages. Best wishes. Thincat (talk) 05:57, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, fine. Yann (talk) 06:09, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Help, please[edit]

Hi Yann: I found this image today while reviewing new uploads. I notice that yes it has the tag about permissions, but looking at the bottom of the page it shows a completely different image in the file history. I don't know if this is on purpose, or an accident? Please explain if you know what has happened! Thank you! Ellin Beltz (talk) 06:29, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Ravel again[edit]

Hello, sorry about before re: the Ravel works: since they are now permissible on Commons, could you restore the Ravel files that are red-linked in this revision of the Ravel page? You can then use this link to undo the relevant edits by CommonsDelinker. There are also some other files: File:Bol 54.mid, file:Bolero flute ravel.mid, and a few audio files in my deleted contributions from November 2011 (I can't remember their names), which could be undeleted. Thanks! Graham87 (talk) 13:53, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

@Graham87: Hi,
Could you please post a request on COM:UDR, just to follow the right procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:01, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
done. Graham87 (talk) 01:52, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
So Yann, Fastily, I can't get files of compositions by Ravel speedily deleted because they don't violate Commons policy, but I can't get them undeleted either because they might violate project policy. Interesting! Graham87 (talk) 11:45, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Hello Yann,

I've received a message from you about copyrighting (User talk:Bela.ana#Copyright violations)

Sorry, I had no intention to violate copyrights. But I don't understand - if Files were downloaded from official site or any other open resource and then were uploaded here how is that become illegal? All my files were downloaded from the open source

Please give me a piece of advice about licensing if you can.

Many thanks, Bela ana —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bela.ana (talk • contribs)

File:Tj Warren - Acc Player of the year 2014.jpeg[edit]


I was curious to why my photo for Tj warren (college basketball photo in the ncaa tournament) was deleted. I understand it was from the internet so it needs copyright license and all that. However I emailed the director of communications for the school of North Carolina State University who owned the photos and he allowed me to use them. I sent a permissions email for wikipedia and tagged the article that i used, the photo, the email that I requested copyright license, and the permission that was requested. Wikipedia had allowed it because they though they provided enough license but I see there was an error now because of commons. I was just wondering what other information do i need and is there a way you could undelete the photo. Thank you so much for your time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by WhatsDefeat (talk • contribs)

@WhatsDefeat: Hi,
First the license is missing. Second there is no permission in the description page, which is required for all files you didn't make yourself. Please see COM:L for details. So please send a permission, and then the picture can be undeleted. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:32, 5 April 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for eliminating all his images.

He has no account at pt.wikipedia, but ALL his images were used by user pt:user:RBCampos, minutes after FlavioThiago had upload them. I think this is an evidence of sock-puppetry.

Please take a look at user talk:RBCampos contributions, he has a lot of deleted images, he may be using another account in order to avoid being blocked.

I suggest you block them both, and FlavioThiago for infinite time.

I blocked RBCampos at pt:Wikipedia.

Deletion of the symbol of Czech Air Force unit[edit]

I really disagree with your deletion of File:Znak_213._výcvikové_letky.jpg claiming "Copyright violation". In fact, there are many Czech military symbols, for example File:Logo of the Czech Armed Forces.svg since 2008 or File:VVS ARC.jpg with PD-CzechGov licence. Otherwise, you have to delete all these files and I think it does not make sense. --CS92 (talk) 21:16, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

@CS92: Hi,
This image is a derivative work of a cartoon by DreamWorks, which has a copyright. Additionally the source says "Copyright © 2014". It is not made the government of the Czech Republic. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:03, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, thank you for your explanation as I don't know anything about those DreamWorks cartoons ;) Still, it is quite ironic that the Air Force personnel violates copyright. I will send an e-mail to about this issue.--CS92 (talk) 10:26, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
@CS92: Hi,
There could be several valid reasons for some Air Force people using this: 1. they could have a limited permission from DreamWorks; 2. they could simply use a fair use rationale. None of this is a free license. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:21, 9 April 2014 (UTC)


Hello Yann, I disagree with your deletion of File:Eiza González en IDM pasarelas.jpg.

Greetings Yann! I am asking for admin guidance on gallery of user who uploaded this image. I find several of these "contact me for license" comments on his uploads, one of his files was deleted for missing source and he left a note on my talk page which made me go take a look at his uploads. My gut instinct is to nominate the entire gallery for deletion, but assuming COM:AGF for this uploader, I hesitate. Perhaps he thinks he is doing good things? I am conflicted and cannot proceed on this one. Your assistance will be most graciously appreciated. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:35, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

@Ellin Beltz: Hi,
Seeing that all needed information are provided, and that his/her other uploads are correctly licensed, I think it is OK. Nevertheless, if he sends a permission, it would even be better, and assure that nobody questions the copyright status. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:50, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

The work is painted by me; as model I used a photo of Salinger by his Military college yearbook (1930s), "aged" by myself (hand work). It's PD-US No notice. No indication of copyright is given in the school-edited volume. --StefanoRR (talk) 14:46, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

@StefanoRR: Hi,
I understand, however for files which were published on another website before being uploaded to Commons, we required a permission. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. The file will be undeleted once we received the permission. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:53, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Images bloquées en VI[edit]

Salut Yann, Nous avons maintenant 5 images bloquées. Il a t'y une procédure pour les promouvoir manuellement? Si elle n'existe pas pourrais tu effacer la nomination en VI de telle façon que l'image puisse être représenté? Merci de ton avis --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 17:30, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

@Archaeodontosaurus: Bonjour,
Désolé, je ne sais pas. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 10:43, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Merci, la situation c'est débloquée. Bonne journée. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 12:13, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Deleted images[edit]

Hi! You have deleted File:Vlasta Žehrová.jpg, File:Swingujeme, rejdíme.jpg, File:Konferenciérské duo.jpg, File:Bajo trio a Madame.jpg. Why did you not wait for OTRS? OTRS has already got a ticket 2014041210008749. Miraceti (talk)

@Miraceti: Hi,
There was no license and no {{OTRS pending}} template. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:51, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Could you return them back to live? Miraceti (talk) 10:11, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I can't read the ticket, which is weird. I am looking for another volunteer to look at it. Thanks for your patience. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:42, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
@Miraceti: Hi,
I undeleted the images, and added a temporary permission. I will ask a Czech speaker to validate them. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:33, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

File:The Children of Captain Grant, by Édouard Riou 009.jpg[edit]

Hi! What was the idea to rename this picture that is one from the set of 176 files? Now, it doesn't go in the proper order... Electron   00:26, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

OK. Well, the ' was a problem in WS, but it is fixed now. Regards, Yann (talk) 02:02, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
OK. I've renamed it to the previous name. Electron   08:02, 15 April 2014 (UTC)



J'ai restauré les images et ajouté les permissions. Pourriez-vous vérifier qu'il n'en manque pas : liste. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:02, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Merci pour les restaurations ! Elles sont toutes là. Moumou82 (talk) 18:46, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Lakkhichhara.jpg[edit]


This is a promo shot, yes. But these people are my personal friends, and i got the permission to use this photo, since its already on facebook in the public domain.

Also, i'm new to this editing, so, i'd really appreciate the help regarding what procedure to follow while uploading media to the pages. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Frostina2k (talk • contribs)
