File:Ljubljana Central Market 2010 bird eye.jpg[edit]

I'm also asking for the review and possibly undeletion of File:Ljubljana Central Market 2010 bird eye.jpg. This file has been deleted despite the consensus to not delete it at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Ljubljana Central Market. The elongated white series of arcades, visible just above the centre of the image, which have been created by Plečnik, have been agreed to be de minimis. Other buildings and the square have not been designed by Plečnik. --Eleassar (t/p) 13:43, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

File:EnerpacBirdsNest.png [edit]

This is a photo of the Beijing Bird's Nest. It's a photo purchased and released by Enerpac--a division of Actuant Corporation, where I am employed. There a couple of other similar photos which have been deleted do to supposed copyright violations.

We would appreciate if these changes were reversed.

Please e-mail me at david.elster@actuant.com and I can validate these photos.

Hello,

I was emailed regarding the temporary deletion of this image. I was informed that it may not comply with the copyright rules of the site.

I replied stating that I got the image from the owner, with permission to use it on the Wikipedia page.

I was told that it would be put back up however it hasn't yet.

Could you please update me on the status of the image?

Kind regards,

File:Chuck Colby and the "Syzygy" prototype Atari Pong.jpg[edit]

I received permission to post the image from the photographer, Bruce Damer who is owner of the DigiBarn Computer Museum. It was deleted only because it previously uploaded it under a difference license (after wading through 10 pages trying to find the closest one resembling "public domain"), rather than the individual first verifying it with me or Bruce Damer.

File:Johannes Nepomuk- Kapelle (Kitzbühel).jpg

Hallo an alle. Herzi Pinki hat 6 meiner eigenen Fotos gelöscht. Hier soll eine zweite Diskussion darüber statt finden. Es kann nicht die zweite Diskussion sein, da die erste überhaupt nicht statt gefunden hat. Herzi Pinki hat mich vor der Löschung in dieser Sache NICHT kontaktiert. Ich bin der Meinung, dass man Beweise haben muss, um jemanden des Diebstahls beschuldigen zu können. Und es wäre so einfach: hätte er mich zuerst gefragt, hätte ich ihm ohne weiteres beweisen können, dass es meine Fotos sind. Ich erwarte, dass die Fotos wiederhergestellt werden und dass Herzi Pinki auf meiner Diskussionsseite sich offiziel entschuldigt. Ich wünsche allen eine schöne Zeit. --Gliwi (talk) 20:24, 1 November 2012 (UTC) PS.

File:Karte Traisen (Fluss).svg[edit]

Hi together! Jim suggested to come here to get some kind of 'policy decision'. Main problem of this file seems to be that I used facts (district outlines, course of an river and location of some municipialitys) to create an own map. Caused of the long time since the creation I can not specify where from I took the informations. But the same problem is not only in this map, nearly every map in Maps of Austria (and many other regions) does have this problem. I am the oppinion that simple, factual elements like outlines are not copyrightable, Jim is other opinion. I have no problem to redraw this single map using OSM (where I am contributor as well), even if the map would be pretty the same. But we need to have a guideline for all maps using just simple elements, there are hundreds of thousends on commons... Some related Links:

Best --AleXXw 22:36, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

As we don't know your sources it's difficult to have a clear answer. However here is why I do think maps are copyrighted: even the simplest elements as rivers and borders on a 2D map are the results of a complex interpretation (call it projection, simplification, whatever) which can make it copyrightable. --PierreSelim (talk) 07:16, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
I admit to being a little unsure here, which is why I suggested that Alex bring this here from the long discussion on my talk page cited above. Maps clearly have a copyright in the USA and, I believe, in most, maybe all, other countries. German case law and EU statue has extended that beyond the graphical presentation to include the assemblage of data in the map. Therefore you cannot trace a copyrighted map, either digitally or with pencil and paper, without infringing the copyright. In Germany you certainly cannot and in the rest of the EU you maybe cannot even take the data points off the map by lat/lon or grid and create a new map.
Alex has said many times that "I used facts to create an own map". Facts cannot be copyrighted in the USA and many other countries, so using just the facts could be OK in such places. If he did not work in Germany (he is Austrian) then the database question need not arise. However, he has not said how he used the facts -- tracing, just taking points off, something else -- and that is the crux of the question. In the US, he could take locations off of a map or a collection of maps and create a new map, but he could not trace it. But what did he actually do? Remember that copyright law depends on specifics, so that is the unanswered question. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 11:33, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
Let me add that this is a decision that will potentially affect many (hundreds?) of Alex's maps, so I would appreciate leaving it open for thorough discussion. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 21:44, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

@Jim: Normaly I do copy the outlines point by point into a GIS-program, export it to svg and start editing at Inkscape. This decision may not just affect my files, there are thousands of other files... Some examples: 1, 2, 3 or 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8. I found within short search some FP and QI which we have here for several years... Best --AleXXw 22:07, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Alex's method would be OK under USA copyright law as the locations of points are facts that cannot be copyrighted. I'm not sure about Germany, though, or the rest of the EU, as they apply copyright to large collections of facts in a way that the USA does not. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 22:11, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
So the GIS program puts a transparent window over the source image, and you click on the position of each point in the path that you want to transcribe? Then you retype any name associated with that point? (So far I'm leaning toward undelete per Commons:Derivative_works#Maps, but more info would help.) --99of9 (talk) 02:17, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Nope. I klick every point in source, take its coordinates and add the coordinates to GIS. This sounds like a horrible amount of work, but is has to be done just once per country. So every of mine map of Austria are based on one such process, I just take different layers of that work, ie country, state, district, highways,... Best --AleXXw 05:48, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I definitely Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion, unless someone shows me that Austria has very strong database rights (and even then, the likely original owner of the regional boundary database is the government, and it was probably created quite a long time ago, so PD on the database is also arguable). --99of9 (talk) 10:36, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

✓ Restored per 99of9. Anyone who disagrees may take this to COM:DR again, which would focus on the real issue involved (database rights in Austria). King of ♠ 10:51, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Jiwasraya-nillmij.jpg This is my photo, and I was permitted to take one[edit]

File:Jiwasraya-nillmij.jpg

The panoramic law of Indonesia is "grey" in nature, and it is outdated. With the current political nature of Indonesia, there is little or no effort in revising the law.

Many photos of Indonesia are of this nature. If we would abide strictly to this outdated law, then all photos of Indonesia (including picture of skyscrapers, etc.) should be removed.

The photo is my original photo, and I got a permission from the owner of the building. The building itself is historical in nature, and is part of Jakarta's Cagar Budaya (cultural heritage).

This is my second deletion of a photo which I consider an "unfair deletion" because of an outdated rule and because the person who deleted the photo has little knowledge about Indonesia in general. The first photo that was deleted is not even my upload, it's a 1970s photo that was donated by Tropenmuseum to Wikipedia, and to think that a photo from Tropenmuseum can be deleted without questioning, it baffles me. And now it's my photo. This really upsets me.

I hope this photo would be undeleted. Otherwise, all my contributions to Wikimedia will be futile and I would consider not to upload any more photos into Wikimedia because my interest is in architecture, and it seems that no Indonesian architecture should be posted in Wikimedia, if that's the case.

Kind regards.

File:Upsilon Xi Clocktower Nov 2011.jpg[edit]

The reason given for the deletion was: "Unlikely to be own work: small resolutions, missing EXIF/different cameras." I took this photo myself, i.e., with my own camera, and my own hands, and clicked the button with my own pointer finger. There was nothing wrong with the resolution, although I did decrease the size of the image with Photoshop before posting it. I don't know anything about EXIF or different cameras - I'm not a camera or a computer expert, so I can't help you with that. However, I can assure you that I took the photo myself. Which brings me to another point, how is it that one user can just haphazardly delete another user's images because he "SUSPECTS" that the photo is not their work? That sounds awfully unjust and unfair to me. Joe "Highrock" Giove (talk)

Nothing was done haphazardly. This file comes from Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Joe "Highrock" Giove. File:1963 Vindagua UpsilonXi Original.jpg comes from a yearbook and includes the dubious claim "1963 Vindagua yearbook of Lee College. Image should be useable for non-profit means". File:1994 - Upsilon Clocktower.jpg is small, has no EXIF, and looks like it was taken from the internet. File:Keith Jeffords 2.jpg is a professional-looking portrait taken with a high-end Nikon camera. File:2008 COG Overseer transition.jpg is taken with a Canon and is of a small size.

Files uploaded by GosGroc[edit]

All files listed at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by GosGroc have been asked for deletion because of no evidence of PD. I have argued that they are PD because they are Spanish Laws. Then it has been deleted because of MOst PDFs of text (...) are out of scope. If the page Commons:Project_scope#PDF_and_DjVu_formats is right, then the files are not out of scope. Just read:

  • A PDF or DjVu file of a published and peer-reviewed work would be in scope on Wikisource and is therefore also in scope on Commons.
  • Remember that Wikisource may use PDF or DjVu files in order to proofread or create source texts: Therefore, scans of suitable editions of notable public domain works are almost always within scope for this reason.
  • You could say "it's raw text", but Note that scans of existing books, reports, newspapers etc of historic or other external significance are not excluded on this ground, even if they contain no images.

Please, undelete them and understand they are part of the peer-review and proofread page systems working on Wikisource. Thanks. -Aleator (talk) 15:05, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Please note that I said, "Most PDFs of text... are out of scope." [emphasis added]. That is certainly true. Almost all PDFs of text that exist in the world are from non-notable authors, are on non-notable subjects, or both. I would venture a guess that 99.99% of everything that exists in PDF format is out of scope for any WMF project.
"A PDF or DjVu file of a published and peer-reviewed work would be in scope on Wikisource and is therefore also in scope on Commons." That tells me that any Masters or PhD thesis by any person is in scope, which is plainly not the case. In fact, we delete them on a regular basis.
In order to get restoration of these you will need to show both that we have a suitable license -- which is not at all clear -- and that they are actually in scope for Wikisource. I think these fail on both counts. . Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:04, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
OK, license and scope.
License. Commons:Copyright_rules_by_territory_-_full#Spain states that Legal or ruling dispositions and their correspondent projects, resolutions of jurisdictional organs and acts, agreements, deliberations and reports of public organizations, and so official translations of all these texts are not subjected to "intellectual property". The files are legal dispositions of Generalitat Valenciana government, that is, from Spain.
Scope. Your comments suggest me that Wikisources are not very well known WMF projects. I'll focus on English Wikisource (but it also applies for the rest, not only legal dispositions in English). Wikisources accepts legal dispositions (e.g. s:Wikisource:WikiProject Law, etc. I can add 50 more links). Wikisource contains raw text, not PDF files (the reason is the existence of Commons). It's some years since the Proofread Page extension has been developed for helping in the proofreading system. Scans of books, loaded in Commons as DjVu and PDF, are being transcripted page by page, and thanks to that extension the whole book is transcluded in the main namespace, allowing important advantages (...).
99,99% of DjVu and PDF files used on Wikisources are in scope there, so they are in Commons.
-Aleator (talk) 16:31, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
It would be helpful to my understanding of this if you would give me a definition of what you are calling "dispositions" -- that is not a word that I am familiar with in this context. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 00:41, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps Spanish disposición [legal o normativa] has not the exact meaning of English [legal or normative] disposition and I've fallen into a false friend. What I call dispositions can be replaced by [Spanish] laws: Constitution, Organic Laws, ordinary Laws, Legislative Royal Decrees, Royal Decrees, Decrees, Orders and less jerarchical "laws". The files are decrees. -Aleator (talk) 01:22, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I would support undeletion of these files. What worry me most if to be sure that there are accurate copies of the original texts, if the PDFs have been produced by the uploader. Yann (talk) 06:29, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Presuming that these are texts of Spanish laws... those are definitely in scope for Wikisource, no question. They are also automatically PD in the United States (ineligible for copyright). Not all countries have that stance, but many do, including Spain. If they were deleted for copyright reasons, that was definitely an error -- the original nomination reason wasn't great if they are in fact laws. They would be {{PD-SpanishGov}} (and {{PD-EdictGov}} for the U.S. side, though that is mentioned already on the first tag). Wikisource typically wants scanned PDF source documents to base their text on; if these files suffice for that, then yes Commons should be the one to host the PDFs and they are easily in scope. If they are not suitable as source documents though -- perhaps if they were from unofficial sources, where they don't represent any additional verifiability that the text is correct over and above simply uploading the text to Wikisource -- then they may be out of scope (on Commons, anyways: Wikisource definitely wants the text). If personally-made PDFs there would have to be some particular advantage to the PDF format over having the text on Wikisource, I think -- definitely possible in some situations, but it's not assured. But if they are scans of known good sources of the law text, they are in scope. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:26, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Those PDF files, as far as I know, are the original and official ones, made by the own Valencian Government, so the most accurate I can imagine. One example can be http://www.docv.gva.es/datos/2010/04/20/pdf/2010_4251.pdf I thought paper edition was the official one (it always was, i'm becoming old... :S), but I read an extra argument supporting undeletion, which is that only exist one official edition: the online one (that makes me impossible to scan the paper edition, which is a copy of the online edition; ref: http://www.docv.gva.es/index.php?id=40 El Diari Oficial de la Comunitat Valenciana es publicarà en format electrònic, com a única versió, que tindrà la consideració d'oficial i autèntica). -Aleator (talk) 01:02, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Per Carl, I withdraw my objection. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 11:08, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Hallo, ich habe die Copyright violation geklärt.

Category:Fresh Hare[edit]

The files in this Category were deleted when discovered that the copyrighted character Bugs Bunny appeared on it. But Bugs Bunny didn't appeared in all the files. Considering that Fresh Hare is a PD-Warner Brothers Cartoon (its copyright wasn't renewed), I demand to restore this, this and this one.--Coentor (talk) 21:44, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

As We can see in Wikisource for Copyright renewals: "To search for a renewal, you need to know the year in which the work was originally published. While renewal was required in the 28th year after publication, you should also look in the 27th year. Just in case the records were published late, checking the 29th year is also useful. For example, for Book A, published in 1930, you should check the records for 1957 and 1958 (and maybe 1959)." For this very films, We should consider 1942+27 books, this is 1969 (& 1970 & 1971). The film Wasn't renewed 1969 and neither appears a mention in the books of 1970 nor 1971. (For the year 1969 there are Twoo books, but "Fresh hare" doesn't appears as renewed in any of it: as We can see.)--Coentor (talk) 21:44, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I restored all three by default, due to the bug that does not allow viewing of undeleted files until they are actually undeleted. If another admin agrees with this, please close it as done. -- King of ♠ 06:49, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
File:Fresh Hare title.JPG should be okay, based on the rationale provided by Coentor, but I would question whether the other two were used in other, renewed, works? I seem to have seen the Merrie Melodies screens in a lot of cartoons - that this particular film wasn't renewed isn't evidence that the copyright on this image wasn't renewed. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 20:55, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Interesting question, But I believe I can prove that the titles weren't reused: as We can see in the :en article of certain DVD collection, some cartoons are said to have "their original titles" restored. The WB cartoons had a different opening sequence for each cartoon, at least the very old ones. I mean, the design was the same, but every cartoon had its own opening "redone". But some of those openings were "cut" when WB sold its library to APP, which used the very same "Blue Ribbon" opening for every cartoon. Here We can see that in the very last release of WB shorts, the original opening and ending sequence (the famous "THat's all folks!") in some Cartoons appears as have "been restored for this release, replacing the Blue Ribbon reissue titles.". If the origjnal opening and ending of each cartoon was "the same", there could have been restored much earlier, Beacuse it would have been enough with adding a normal opening taken from whichever other cartoon. Here We have other rare example of different endings which were not seen in TV.--Coentor (talk) 13:18, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Interesting, I didn't know that. But if the same general design was used, if the image(s) they was based on were copyrighted, that would be enough to cause Commons:Derivative work trouble, even if these particular images aren't copyrighted. Do we know what the original version was? --Philosopher Let us reason together. 21:23, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

If not listed every-else-where (maybe a Web), The only way to find it should be by looking all the cartoons chronologicaly. And in that case We would be acting as a primary source, I'm affraid. Doesn't is? Some special cases are listed in :en, as the Bugs "Thats all Folks", but those opening-endings are not affected, because the design of this very opening/ending is quite different.--Coentor (talk) 14:56, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't know what you mean by Commons acting as a "primary source" - distinctions such as that aren't relevant to a copyright determination. As for the rest, I'd appreciate another opinion on this UDR - I realize that requiring "evidence of absence" would be difficult, but I'm about equally unhappy with just assuming that they're okay. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 01:52, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Re:

The following text comes from here:

That was way out of order. "Non-free" images are images which are [1]], and are of a small size. You should know that. Secondly, you should have taken the deletion off until the issue was resolved. Third, They were only used on the Welsh Wiki, and I, as a Bureaucrat on Wiki-cy asked you for more information. Fourth: I suggest that the next time you leave an answer you also inform that person on his Talk page, as I informed you. Lastly, only now do you mention the lack of EXIF! That should have been stated immediately on the 5 November. Reinstate the images immediately. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 19:58, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Llywelyn2000 (talk) 20:24, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

My question was in regard to the full phrase "fine as with non-free": non-free/fair use images aren't allowed on Commons. The files were deleted because you gave no valid evidence that these images were free. I commented at the DR, which was the appropriate venue for comment. The uploader was informed by bot of the DR, which is standard practice here. The lack of EXIF was part of my rationale for the DR on 5 November, and so this part of the issue was stated immediately. I still don't see any reason to restore these files, as there's no evidence that they are freely licensed. INeverCry 21:36, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Comment to Llywelyn2000 -- I was not involved in this DR. My numbers match yours.
First, I don't understand this:
""Non-free" images are images which are [2]], and are of a small size."
Non-free images are images that are not freely licensed according to Commons requirements. Size has nothing to do with it, although small size and lack of EXIF is a good indicator that an image was taken from the web without permission. Also, your quote was from WP:EN. This is Commons and our rules are different.
Second, the DR ran four days after the last comment. We do not usually stop a DR because someone has made an objection unless, of course, that objection raises a valid concern.
Third, the last comment was made by INeverCry. The ball was in your court.
Fourth, there is no requirement or usual practice on Commons that a user be informed of every comment made that might affect a DR on which he has commented. You were certainly aware of this DR and it is up to you to keep it on your watchlist and respond as necessary. Please remember that Commons Admins deal with several thousand images every day. Ten of us, including INeverCry, do half of those and we are barely staying ahead of the backlog. There is no way in the world that we can take responsibility for notifying users except at the beginning of a DR as it would more than double the effort required to manage a DR.
Last, the original nomination was:
"possible copyvios - small sizes - no EXIF"
which includes the mention of lack of EXIF which you claim was missing.
There is nothing in your comments at the DR or above that addresses the only question here -- are these images actually the uploader's own work as claimed? The uploader, User:YGraigArw, has uploaded seven images, of which five are above and the other two are claimed as "own work" but plainly are not, although they are probably PD. He or she has not chosen to comment on the DR. Since all of his or her uploads are from October 3, 2011, that is not surprising.
Unless I am missing something badly, everything appears to be perfectly in order here, except the tone of your comments and your peremptory demand. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 00:20, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
1. The president for the acceptance of small sized images is on that page: "images should be rescaled as small as possible to still be useful as identified by their rationale, and no larger."
2. My objection "raises a valid concern". The DR should have been stopped.
3. You ask: "are these images actually the uploader's own work as claimed?" Of course they are! Why else would I dispute the DR and waste my valuable time hear arguing for them to be kept? Not only have I known Phil (User:YGraigArw) for over 20 years, but he also happens to be secretary of Wici Cymru - the Wikipedia association in Wales. I don't think this exercise will stop him from uploading again to Commons, but it certainly does not give positive vibes in any way whatsoever.
4. You say, "There is no way in the world that we can take responsibility for notifying users except at the beginning of a DR as it would more than double the effort required to manage a DR." Then in my humble opinion, I think it's about time you did. We do it continually on Wici=cy and should be done on Commons. It could be automatically generated. No I didn't check it as I believed that common sense would dictate that the images should be kept.
5. The "oiginal nomination" did not contain the words which you quote: ""possible copyvios - small sizes - no EXIF""; see here. That information should be on the user's Talk page. I saw the EXIF mention of the link on that page and corrected it by adding cats. This, surely, should have been enough. Nothing in INeverCry's subsequent note (18:57, 7 November 2012 (UTC)) mentions the fact that he was still awaiting further information. He should have answered my question and list which elements he was still waiting for.
The "tone of my comments" on 08:05, 6 November 2012 was fine ("Many thanks for your keen eye! I've now added cats to all images...") Deleting images without giving exact reasons turns people against Commons. Now let me reiterate: undelete the images. If anything User:King of Hearts' tone is very, very inappropriate. Doing a 'sanity check' casts doubt on an user, not only the process.
Llywelyn2000 (talk) 05:29, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

1) As I said, your quote is from WP:EN where the rules are different. On Commons, exactly the opposite rule is in effect. We prefer larger images, up to a maximum of 100MB, and will delete the smaller one when two images from the same shutterclick are uploaded. That's actually true of the two versions of File:PendrefRhuthunJDJones.jpg which YGraigArw uploaded -- I have deleted the smaller one.

2) Small size and lack of EXIF is an absolutely routine reason for deletion -- tens of images every day are deleted with that reason. That's particularly true of a drive by uploader -- a user whose only contributions are one small batch of images, all of which are suspect. Since you were not the uploader there was nothing in your response at the DR or in your first request above which spoke to the question of whether your colleague was actually the photographer. Also, as I said above, the last response was by INVerCry and you ignored it for four days before the deletion.

3) Fair enough, but why didn't you say that in the DR or anywhere in your original comments? This all would have been avoided if you had said that in the DR. BTW, this does not mean we should keep them. The two that I have seen are very small and not good quality -- I suspect that they are out of scope.

4) I wish that Commons were the size of WP:CY and could do such things. Again, I say that you vastly underestimate the volume of transactions on Commons. Our daily new uploads of images are double the total number you have at WP:CY. We delete 2,000 images every day. What you suggest would require several thousand messages every day. I have been involved in tens of thousands of DRs and this is the first one where anyone -- uploader or bystander -- has asked for such a notice.

5) I don't know what to say to this. I quoted the original nomination correctly above. I just went back to the history of the nomination and the words I quoted are there, as quoted, in the first line in the history (that is the bottom line, as history's are latest on top).

Last) King of Hearts's request was entirely independent of your comments. You misunderstand it entirely. We are currently struggling with a system bug that is frustrating us all and his request is for confirmation that the bug appears for three of the five images above, nothing more. It is his own sanity he is checking, not yours in any way. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:23, 12 November 2012 (UTC)


I just wanted to do a sanity check on the recent bug affecting ability to view deleted images for admins. Currently, I can see the fourth and fifth images, while the first three give errors. Can other admins confirm this? -- King of ♠ 01:25, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

File:COMFORTAdd.GIF[edit]

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: By Commons:Deletion requests/File:COMFORTAdd.GIF, one file have deleted. That was consisted by two images of a newspaper's article:京城日報(Keijo Nippo) 26th July 1944 and 毎日新報(Mainichi Shinpo) 27th October 1944.

1. As the argument for deletion, the license tag was not appropriate, because "PD-Japan-organization" and "PD-1996" should have been given to these two.

2. These two articles was published by the Newspaper corporation which Japanese managed at the time of Korea under Japanese rule, therefore the Copyright Act of Japan should be applied.

3. Though the South Korean Copyright Act should be applied, Article 3(4) of the 2011 amended South Korean Copyright Act describes:

“even though a copyrighted work is protected under the amended act, if its protection term has expired in the country of origin, the extended term of copyright protection under the amended act will not be recognised in Korea.”
Kim and ChangRecent amendments to the Copyright Act - International Report,Intellectual Asset Management,WebCite®

4.And also the South Korean Copyright Act before the amendments of 2011 made the protected period of copyright 50 years. Since the protected period of 50 years will expire in 1994, two articles already had become a public domain.

The amended provisions on the copyright protection period will take effect on 1st July 2013, therefore the object to which the protected period after amendments is applied is limited to the collective work in 1st July 1963 and afterwards.

So,Those two articles of 1944 is not the object of 20 years of protected period extension.

Or, though "PD-South Korea" should be applied, the condition is the same: The Copy right had expired in 1994. Incidentally, we need Caution: "Template:PD-South Korea" does not refer these datailes of 2011 amended South Korean Copyright Act, and in the new edition just replaced the number of age(50 to 70). PD-South Korea is yet a temporary version.

For these above reasons, I demand to restore this file with the license tag of PD-Japan-organization" and "PD-1996. --AZUCHI (talk) 07:06, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I am requesting that this photo be undeleted but recognize you may need more evidence of the right to use the photo, I'm just not sure what is needed.

He sent it to her for this purpose and she uploaded it to Wikimedia Commons from her own computer; it was not copied from the webpage. If something is required from Budd Albright to satisfy any concerns about permission to use the photo please let me know (the user who submitted the article and uploaded the photo is very new to Wikipedia and has asked for my assistance to sort this out).

File:COMFORTAdd.GIF, re-requesting.[edit]

I am re-requesting the undeletion of this file again because it seems that the judgement made by the administrator Fastily is quite dubious.

As already explained previously, this file is made of two newspaper advertisements which were published in 1944 in Korea under the rule of Japan (Korea ceased to exist at the time as an independent state). The ads were on:

Both of above were major newspapers in Korea at the time, and these copies are regarded as authentic by the historian Mr. Ikuhiko Hata (秦郁彦), who was formerly a professor at Nippon University. (See 「慰安婦募集広告と強制連行命令書の有無」現代史家 秦郁彦氏に聞く②(H19.3.28) at 1m 12-23 second. Please also confirm how Mr. Hata looks like.) The advertisers were organizations, one of which were clearly Japanese (Imai Shōkaijo 〔今井紹介所〕) and the other was anonymous but written in Japanese (There is a name "Mr. Kyo" 〔許氏〕 following the telephone number of the location of appointment in the second ad. But it looks rather to be a telephone appointer than an advertiser himself.)

This file, File:COMFORTAdd.GIF, had been requested deletion twice in the past, and the first of which was overruled by the administrator Jcb as "Commons doesn't judge those issues". Since the licensing problem with this file will be cleared with "PD-Japan-organization" and "PD-1996", as stated by the previous undeletion request, the only reason that User:Fastily rejected seemed to be that he simply didn't like the file for political reasons. This is clearly agaist COM:NOTCENSORED. I would like to ask this case to be judged fairly by an administrator who has a neutral stance on Asian historical dispute. --トトト (talk) 07:50, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Reason: Deletion reason is "Marking as possible copyvio because No FoP in France...Nothing about it being a memorial nor its creation by a local assiciation precludes copyright." However, the deletion request failed to consider whether there is sufficient originality for copyright. I believe this simple memorial lacks the "imprint of the personality of the author", as required by French copyright law.

This memorial consists of a plaque with a very short text, short enough not to be copyrightable as a work of text (somewhat akin to short text that might appear on a gravestone). It's in a simple font, on a plain rectangular slab with no decoration or other artistry. This slab is centered on a large boulder that appears to be naturally shaped. All this I believe is below the threshold of originality.

There is a low brick barrier (few inches high?) around the boulder, with decorative corner-pieces, and this might be copyrightable. However, if that is the only copyrightable aspect, it could be cropped out and revdel'd rather than deleting the whole image.

Thanks, cmadler (talk) 13:23, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree that the plaque does not pass any TOO and that the corner pieces may not, or could be cropped. However, you dismiss the stone on which the plaque is mounted. Even if naturally shaped, its choice and orientation would pass the TOO in the USA. On top of that, I suspect it is not naturally shaped, but has had some work done on it -- perhaps even entirely sculpted. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 17:01, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
    • I can't see the image, but... simple choice of material would not qualify for U.S. copyright. You can copyright the selection and arrangement of several non-copyrightable objects, for example the order of songs on an album, and perhaps the selection on a greatest-hits album, but it usually takes more than 2-3 elements. Certainly not a single element. Carl Lindberg (talk) 07:32, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The stone can't get a copyright, and the text is much too simple. Yann (talk) 07:38, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
  • @ Carl and Yann -- why can't the stone get a copyright? It is almost certainly sculpted to some degree -- it is not a boulder that was found in nature in that shape. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:49, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
    • The stone is certainly not "sculpted". It may have been cut somehow, but whatever was done could not get a copyright. It is just a stone, not a sculpture. Yann (talk) 11:43, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Simply finding the right stone and turning it the way you like does not make the stone eligible for copyright. In case the stone is tooled, it is too trivial. It is level and symmetric, which is not original. If that is copyrightable, so is this and millions of others. --Jonund (talk) 18:08, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

File:Le Cannet - Chapelle Saint-Sauveur-1.JPG[edit]

I strongly contest this deletion, since the argument was that the mosaic on the facade of the chapel was made by an artist Theo Tobiasse recently died and therefore under copyright. But one must not forget that the main subject of the picture is the chapel, a centuries old construction and the mosaic a real secondary - if not tertiary - subject displaying less that 20% of the surface of the picture. Plus a photo of the chapel without the mosaic is impossible. Thus, freedom of panorama can be applied, and the image undeleted.--LPLT (talk) 09:34, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There is no freedom of panorama to be applied in France and any de minimis argument must fail because the mosaic is certainly the center of interest in the image. While it may be only 20% of the area of the image, it is dead center and brightly colored in the middle of the facade of a grey stone building. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 11:34, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
The uploaders description of the file was "Le Cannet - Chapelle Saint-Sauveur - Mosaïque de Tobiasse". So yes, this is the main subject of the photo. --Martin H. (talk) 06:33, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support I think the chapel is the main subject. Any photo of this facade will unavoidably include the mural. De minimis. INeverCry 17:21, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

✓ Done: The Louvre Pyramid is also dead center and very prominent in any depiction of the facade of the Louvre, but we allow it to appear. Since the photo is showing the entire facade of the chapel, the mural is unavoidable and falls under COM:DM. King of ♠ 10:26, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Files in Category:Črni Kal viaduct[edit]

I propose that the files listed in Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Črni Kal viaduct, which have been recognised as not surpassing the threshold of originality, but have been nonetheless deleted with the rationale that there's no threshold of originality in Slovenia, are undeleted. These are:

From this court case (citing summary): "Architectural author's works are buildings and similar constructions, if they contain individual creative elements [emphasis mine] regarding form, shape or ornaments. In accordance with Article 6 of ZASP [the copyright act] also the composing parts of architectural works are protected if they meet the conditions of an individual intellectual creation (e.g. interior equipment)." It is apparent that these two photographs do not show elements that would qualify as individual intellectual creations. --Eleassar (t/p) 13:30, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

I think we have a language problem here. A "threshold" is something that lies above the floor, so "Threshold of Originality" -- TOO -- implies a level of creativity above the basic level (floor) that is required everywhere for copyright. My example was that both a book and its paragraphs have a copyright, but I carefully did not say that each sentence would have one. There is always creativity required -- a blank canvas is not copyrightable anywhere, nor is a single sentence (notwithstanding the Chilean authorities' decision on the miner's five word message). There is nothing in the cite above which suggests anything more than the barest minimum of creativity is required in Slovenia.
Both of these images show glass slatted windbreaks of a style that I have never seen before on a bridge. It was, and remains, my opinion that these pass the minimum standard described above. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:51, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
These are standard windbreaks, nothing original here. I am also questioning the deletion of File:Crni Kal viaduct construction.jpg. In many cases, we have kept images of buildings under construction. Why not this one? I also restored File:Črni Kal gradnja 2002.JPG where no architectural feature can be seen. Yann (talk) 16:00, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
I've verified sources about the windbreaks and it turns out that they're original indeed. They are described in detail in this article.[3]; it is clear that the fence is an engineering achievement. I therefore apologise to James/Jim. I also think File:Crni Kal viaduct construction.jpg shows built columns, which are copyrightable elements. The proposal should therefore be closed as 'not restored'. As for File:Črni Kal gradnja 2002.JPG, I do not object to its undeletion, because I don't see much copyrightable in it. --Eleassar (t/p) 16:35, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
I restored File:Črni Kal gradnja 2002.JPG, but Jim deleted it again. No comment. Yann (talk) 09:36, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
I do not object to File:Črni Kal gradnja 2002.JPG being restored at the end of this process -- I agree that there doesn't seem to be anything there covered by copyright.
I do object, though, to restoring a file while an UnDR is going on. We are here for the community to decide what to do with all of the files covered by the UnDR. Until the UnDR is closed, we do not know what that consensus is. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:36, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

nichts gegen Korrektheit, aber die fraglichen Bilder entstammen dem Familienbesitz!

Daß ich da ja wohl jegliches Verfügungsrecht habe, könnte ich z.B. beweisen, indem ich hier mit meinem Klarnamen plus Adresse und Telephonnummer zeichne; das widerspräche allerdings nicht nur meinen Wünschen, sondern ebenso - aus guten Gründen - diversen "Wiki...xxx"-Datenschutzrichtlinien. Die o.g. (und viele andere zugehörige) Bilder sind auch z.B. hier abrufbar. Du liebe Zeit - seht Euch die Photos doch bitte einmal an, das sind ja nun wirklich keine anrüchigen Staatsgeheimnisse.

I thought I had fixed the template problem. I got no msg that there was still a problem. Pedretti did not publish this image. I did a line redraw from his a 1978 book and transformed it over several stages that it fit the original drawing in Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus (Folio 133v) of 1493. That original is the color image you see as background. Pedretti did not publish any color image in his book. Then I created a composite image of F133v and the transformed line redraw. So the black lines are my work now and the color background older than 100 years. The modern part in "File:Cyprus-1662.jpg" is totaly my work, please undelete it.

Photos of Disneyland Paris deleted on FoP grounds while RfC discussion on FoP deletion is ongoing[edit]

Files:

(probably not an exhaustive list)

It seems rather perverse to me to delete various files under a certain criterion for deletion when precisely that ground is the subject of an request for comment happening at that moment. I raised this in the deletion request of the first file in the list, disappointingly this was without response. At the very least, if such files are acceptable on en.wiki, I would like leave to reupload them there. The first four files on this list were uploaded by myself, the remainder were not. Malpass93 (talk) 12:12, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

The RFC is about cases where a work is placed in public space and the law allows to make photos and use them commercialy without violating the artists or architects copyright.

So, we have a credits page (go to "Credits/Books" in the main navigation) which says that the principal photographer for the site uses "All Rights Reserved" and a more general notice that gives a CC license for the whole site, but explicitly excludes material which has its own copyright. Although I suspect that their intentions are as we would want them, I read the present status of the site as ARR for all work by Jim Crone, which, we are told, is all photos on the site. Until they fix that -- if that is their intention -- I don't think we can keep anything from the site unless we can establish that Crone is not the photographer. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 14:32, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

I too think it is obvious what his attentions are - too make all his material available under a CC license. According to wikipedia w:All rights reserved (ARR) is a deprecated term pertaining to requirements of the w:Buenos Aires Convention of 1910 "which mandated that some statement of reservation of rights be made in order to secure protection in signatory countries of the convention". So basically it is a statement claiming the protection of the convention for all his works on the site - ie asserting copyright ownership and reserving the right (to himself) to decide who can use the material. He then , on a licensing page, explicitly grants a CC license for all these works. The CC license page specifically excludes only works that have watermarks or "text under them attributing copyright to another source". The ARR statement is a single, disconnected, line on a page about credits and sources of further information, the CC license is on a page linked to as "... additional information and licence details". The intention is clear, there is no significant doubt, unless we construe some contorted legalistic meaning that interprets his intention as making everything CC except where explicitly marked as otherwise or items by Jim Crone - ie an infinitley small number (probably zero). The CC page is a non revokable license, I see no reason not to rely on it. --Tony Wills (talk) 10:55, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

File:COLLECTIE TROPENMUSEUM Hotel Savoy Homann TMnr 20025485.jpg [edit]

As far I can remember this is an image donated by Tropenmuseum to Commons, taken in the Dutch East Indies. The architect left the Dutch East Indies before Indonesian independence. So now Commons is deleting an image received as donation, based on the fantasy that a dead Dutch architect who never lived in Indonesia would claim copyright, under Indonesian law, on an image taken in the Dutch East Indies of one of his buildings, ignoring that the ridiculous idea that a photograph would be a copyright infringement of a 3D architectural work probably did not exist in his lifetime, and still does not exist in the Netherlands. --ELEKHHT 07:06, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

The state of being a 'donation' does not make a file immune to deletion. By your egregious logic, no files can be deleted on Commons, copyvio or not, because they're all donations. Furthermore, bear in mind that even institutions such as the Tropenmuseum can make mistakes.

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Hotel Savoy Homann [edit]

Six images of the Savoy Homann Bidakara Hotel in Bandung, present day Indonesia have been deleted invoking on Indonesian FOP. But PD in Indonesia is 50 years from death of author, and the architect died in 1961, that is according to Indonesian law his work is now PD, FOP is not relevant. For the US as well as the Netherlands where the author resided, his work is not PD but FOP applies. If the images couldn't be restored per common sense, now please restore these deletions per "international law" to quote a Commons admin.

The source you added is a copyrighted website. The images are of Russian State Duma members, taken in 1906 by an unknown photographer and labeled pd-old-100. The 1906 date is too late to justify even pd-old-70, never mind pd-old-100. INeverCry 22:29, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

The deletion was based on a false premise. Freedom of panorama allows for a the creation of two dimensional images of three dimensional artworks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hawkeye7 (talk • contribs) 20:00, 28 November 2012‎ (UTC)
