File:Roßthal 2010 Schulfest 06.jpg[edit]

Ich habe die Serie "Roßthal 2010 Schulfest", deren Fotos sich alle in der Category:Roßthal befinden, selber aufgenommen und unter "gemeinfrei" in Commons hochgeladen. Warum Nr.06 gelöscht wurde kann ich nicht nachvollziehen, da ich nicht den Bildbeschreibungstext einsehen kann und dadurch nicht weiß was auf dem Bild genau drauf war. Hab meine eigenes Bildarchiv angeschaut und aber nix gefunden wo ich einen Löschgrund sehen könnte. Deswegen möchte ich das die Wiederhergestellung geprüft wird. -- sk (talk) 10:16, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

File:bebopvox.jpg[edit]

how come it was deleted?!?! Bebopvox clearly gave me premission through Twitter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gamertroid (talk • contribs) 14:14, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Can you link to the permission tweet? Normally we would require explicit permission for anyone to use it (permission for Wikipedia or Wikimedia only is not enough), including commercial use. See COM:OTRS for the usual procedure to follow when requesting permission -- we prefer to have an email archived for future reference. However, if someone explicitly licensed an image CC-BY-SA or something in a tweet (so it is OK for anyone to use), that may be OK. It depends on the nature of the permission provided. Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:29, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
https://twitter.com/BebopVox/status/285017683710320640 is the Tweet in question; all it was just a permission to use and nothing with regards to a license. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 22:13, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Gráfico Martínez Alfara.jpg [edit]

It was deleted because someone assumed that a photography of a Spanish sportsman taken in 1930 was still under copyright. But the file was a cover of Argentinean magazine "El Gráfico", and the issue covers the very first period when this sportsman was (lived) in Argentina. Then, is an Argentinian photography, and under Argentinian copyright laws (and the file was properly licensed when I uploaded it) this file is in PD. "(Both at least 25 years have passed after the photograph was created, and it was first published at least 20 years ago, Law 11.723, Article 34 as amended, and Berne Convention Article 7 (4))."--Coentor (talk) 22:47, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I think Coentor is probably correct. There might be a question of the image having been first published in Spain, but if the man was living in Argentina at the time, then the Argentine 25 year rule applies to the photograph and there is nothing else on the cover that will have a copyright. .     Jim . . . .

File:Kozolec-BrdoPriKranju.jpg[edit]

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: It was deleted by mistake, as there was no debate on the deletion request page. Similar files were kept (for example: Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Kozolec_dvojni.JPG). Hayracks are not generally copyrightable: "kozolec kot tak, torej kot koncept kozolca, v poznani obliki, ne more biti avtorskopravno varovan, lahko pa je avtorskopravno varovan kozolec, ki ima poseben design, obliko ali katere druge komponente, zaradi katerih je poseben in bi ga lahko šteli med avtorska dela skladno z Zakonom o avtorski in sorodnih pravicah, vendar je za presojo kdaj neko delo predstavlja avtorsko delo, pristojno sodišče." (answer from Slovenian Intellectual Property Office).

In other words, hayrack cannot be copyrightable unless confirmed by court. I think the file should be undeleted (so we can see whether there are any such ornaments that would make it copyrightable and renominate it in the worst case) -- Miha (talk) 22:58, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

The questions I have is this. One, for the structure that is shown here, how old is it? Also, is it just the concept of hay racks that are not copyrightable or anything that deals with folk art? User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 06:39, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Miha here. Finding a copyright in this seems far-fetched to me. It is an old traditional structure. Yann (talk) 07:04, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Functions in Excel.PNG[edit]

Request at least temporary undeletion so I can see what this file looks like. I was unaware that it was under consideration for deletion, there seems to have been no deletion discussion, and I would like to have the opportunity to discuss this matter. The deletion request was:

06:39, 30 December 2012 Yann (talk | contribs) deleted page File:Functions in Excel.PNG (Copyright violation: Screenshot of Microsoft Excel. It is non-free and not allowed on Commons.) (global usage; delinker log)

This deletion summary strikes me as highly exaggerated, My recollection of my design of the Excel illustrations is that they were stripped of any artwork that might be copyright violations. Brews ohare (talk) 11:26, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree that it is probably not a copyvio, but, as an experienced Excel user, I also think it is out of scope as having little educational value. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:06, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Brews ohare: If a file has just been deleted, try searching for the file name (File:Functions in Excel.PNG) using Google Images. In many cases, you will be able to find a thumbnail of the image in Google's cache. --Stefan4 (talk) 20:59, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
I was able to look at the image and it is a composition of two screenshots of excel. It has the spreadsheet and the function table below it. It also has a few arrows explaining what each element is. I still believe it is a derivative work of a copyrighted computer program. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 22:16, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
It appears that http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcThWKacHkdRL5tcD_JRFuUxOuTWf1VPg1tvM5cgc-Cg5KT5RKP6SH4Pf7NU is the image in question.
There is nothing here that is a copyright violation. It must be born in mind that the discussion is about Microsoft Excel, so naturally it uses the terminology and organization of that application. The listing of the function is standard code, the spreadsheet column labels A, B, C, ... are found in any spreadsheet as are the row labels 1, 2, 3, .... The labels designating the various aspects of using a formula with this spreadsheet are of my construction, and the organization of the parts of the figure are my construction. The columns in the portion of the figure labeled 'Name Manager are those used by the so-called name manger in Excel, but there is no copyright violation in listing four columns with plain alphanumeric entries.
Saying this file should be deleted because it is of "little educational value" is, of course, a different matter than a copyright violation. I would, however, disagree with this assessment; the figure makes clear several features of Microsoft Excel that are very handy in using functions and in showing the reader what is involved in coding their own function for use in Microsoft Excel. These matters are non-obvious to the novice and could affect their interest in using this application.
This file should be reinstated in all the articles that originally used it. Brews ohare (talk) 00:08, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry but why the file was restored ? It's a blatant copyvio of a copyrighted software. No Corel vs Borland does not apply, this ruling was only for software menu! Please read before the ruling before restoring such files. Screenshot of Excel are under fair-use on enwiki for a reason. --PierreSelim (talk) 01:15, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Peter Janssen, Kaiser Friedrich II.jpg[edit]

Deleted as a photo of a three-dimensional artwork. But en:Peter Janssen was a painter and he died in 1908. All his works are public domain in all countries. Maybe it was done by his brother en:Karl Janssen was a sculptor, he died more 70 years ago which makes it public domain in Germany (Commons:Copyright_rules_by_territory#Germany). --Enric Naval (talk) 14:39, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose You are correct with respect to the art. But, as noted, albeit cryptically, at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Peter Janssen, Kaiser Friedrich II.jpg, the issue here was not the copyright in the art, but that of the photograph itself. Unlike photographs of paintings, which have no copyright, photographs of sculpture have their own copyright, which we must honor. .     Jim . . . .

If it is a faithful reproduction of a 2D public domain work then OTRS means nothing. The nominator, and closer of the deletion request should have provided some evidence of their assertion, we can not have a system of delete anything just because someone makes an assertion when nominating for deletion.

File:Mohammad_Kamrani-40th.JPG [edit]

I just came back here after a while and found out this photo that was taken by my own hands using my own camera has been deleted just based on a baseless accusation of a user who claimed it was not my own work! The concerned moderator deleted it afterwards, without no exhibition that proved it is not my work... I am deeply sorry for the user who accused me of theft at the beginning and also for the moderator who believed him without provision of any exhibition from the accuser:-( —Preceding unsigned comment added by یوشیچی تویوهارا (talk • contribs)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I am the Admin who deleted the file. Did you really take the original photograph of the young man, write all the text, and produce the poster? Or did you simply take a photograph of the poster? The first would make this "own work" and therefore OK, the second is an infringement on the copyright which belongs to the author of the poster.
And, although it does not really apply in this case, it is not up to the DR nominator or the Admin closer to prove anything. It is up to anyone who wants to keep an image on Commons to prove beyond a significant doubt that the image is PD or correctly licensed.

alexhooperhodson.jpg please undelete[edit]

This image is not copyrighted. I took the photo myself and have specific permission from the subject of the photo to use it on Wikipedia.

You cite the reason that it breaches copyright by linking to a list of pages that also use this image. These pages have all acquired the images without my consent from my original blog post in 2008 (http://moblog.net/view/181242/mr-alex-hooper-hodson)

If you actually bother to check any of the sources you sent me then you can see they are all bogus web pages that have been automatically compiled using bots of some sort.

What do you need for me to prove I have permission to use this image? I can produce written proof if that's what it takes. As an acquaintance of the subject of the photo I know he is very keen to have it visible on Wikipedia.

Can you let me know what to do next?

File:Helsingborg montage 2.png[edit]

This file was removed due to "copyright violation" but it was just a sort of montage made up by pictures previously uploaded to Commons, where most (if not all) of those pictures had been released in public domain... --Kigsz (talk) 12:03, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Three of the six images have CC-BY licenses, so your putting a PD on the montage is a violation of the rights of the owners of the three images. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:12, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
... but that is not a reason for deletion, that is a reason to fix the license. CC-BY does not preclude any license on derivative material; the compilation copyright can certainly be PD, just note the license of the originals. Carl Lindberg (talk) 22:28, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
That's quite true, but -- policy says that the only person who can change the license is the uploader. I certainly can't, it's not my work. Since the uploader chose not to change it, we have no choice. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:47, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
He can only license his own work (the compilation), which he said was PD. Simply correcting attribution to others' work anyone can do. The only reason for deletion would be a derivative work of incompatible licenses. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:17, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't understand your point -- as you certainly know better than I, the montage cannot be PD if it has CC-BY constituents. Therefore the license on the whole must be CC-BY, not PD, and only the uploader can make that happen. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 00:07, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
The copyright of the derivative portions can be whatever the person wants. CC-BY is not CC-BY-SA. Even if it was, I think deleting something which must be CC-BY-SA when the uploader said "PD" is a bit silly -- just change the license in that case (but perhaps not if the uploader specified a different, incompatible license). The uploader can only license the additional work they added to the derivative, and that much is apparently PD. They cannot change the license of the underlying works, no, but that is simply a matter of fixing the attribution. There is no reason to delete on that basis; it is a simple technical licensing mistake. I can't see the montage so it's hard to say how much expression was added in the derivative.
I agree with Carl here. Can we undelete this? Yann (talk) 09:23, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I agree, licensing of derivative works is not obvious to most people, and the uploader is almost always just licensing their contribution. We can of course not relicense someone elses work, but I myself (or any of you) can reupload (unchanged) the collage with a new license derived from the PD contributions and the CC-BY-SA contributions - and license this work as CC-BY-SA. I have made a null contribution that is not copyrightable. To be practical about this, there is no point in doing the physical re-upload of an identical file with our new license, just relicensing the file in-place has the same end result. I would suggest {{cc-by-sa-3.0|Collective work with components by [[User:Mikael Parkvall|Mikael Parkvall]], [[:en:User:Hakandahlstrom|Hakandahlstrom]] and other authors}} --Tony Wills (talk) 23:33, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

File:MaloneHoard.JPG[edit]

Deleted as part of the discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Ulster Museum. The closing admin (User:Jameslwoodward) stated, "the stones, as laid out, would qualify as a sculpture in many places, including both the UK and the US". However this is a photograph of a hoard of neolithic stone axes laid out as thery were found. In no way should such a museum display be considered a work of modern art (and even if it were, it would be allowed under {{FoP-UK}}). BabelStone (talk) 19:19, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Your assertion that the museum display is laid out as the stones were found is completely contradicted by the description in the image file, which says:
"When they were found during work on the land surrounding Danesfort House some were standing upright in the ground which also indicates ritual."
Notwithstanding that, I am persuaded by your point that the display is covered by the UK's very broad FOP. It is too bad that no one brought this up in the DR and that I completely ignored that possibility. Sorry. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 23:52, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

File:IMG 2602.jpg[edit]

It was simply a redirect to File:Kenroku-en, Kanazawa.jpg. This existed (whether as the file name or as the redirect) from 2007 to 2012, when it was deleted as an "unnecessary, unused redirect". First off, deletion isn't helpful because it makes it possible for someone to upload another image under this name, so it's necessary. Secondly, it was used at en:Monuments of Japan. Thirdly, it may well be linked from elsewhere on the Internet; it's not helping reusers if we break their links. Nyttend (talk) 19:42, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Alcatraz Island Lighthouse.jpg[edit]

I originally uploaded this file (International Digital Document ID xmp.did:0180117407206811B1A4C72DECC8C330) to the en:Wikipedia in mid 2009. It is a digitally enhanced illustration which I created on January 26, 2004 from an original digital photograph that I took on December 31, 2003. I am the sole creator and copyright holder of both the original digital photograph and of all elements I used to create the final digital illustration which I then released and licensed to the Public Domain. The file was apparently later transferred to Commons by another user.

At 19:21, 5 January 2013 (UTC) a notice was posted on my Commons talk page that this file had been deleted with no advance notice whatsoever that there was a problem with its permissions or copyright status. (No such notice was posted on my talk page until six minutes after the first notice that the deletion was already a fait accompli.) As the file and its host page are no longer visible, I have no idea what the alleged issue is with the image file so I have no way to address it.

If the issue is "permissions" I provided that when I freely licensed it to the Public Domain in 2009 when I uploaded the image to the en:Wikipedia. Please therefore either restore this image forthwith or provide me some explanation as to why it was unilaterally deleted without prior notice or explanation. Centpacrr (talk) 03:24, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

The image appeared to be a copyvio because http://scchousing.net/Images/City%20Scapes/alcatraz.jpg has slightly higher resolution and therefore appeared to the deleting Admin to be the source. Copyvios are deleted immediately without notice.
Given your long record on WP:EN and only slightly shorter record here, I am inclined to think that the other image is derived from yours, rather than the other way around, but policy requires us to be careful in such situations. Perhaps you could do a little research and find out what actually happened? You might also want to tell scchousing.net that they must either conform to the CC-BY-SA license or take your image off their site. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:35, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes that altered image is clearly derived from mine and not the other way around. One can easily determine this as the derived image and not the original as the "light" on the top of the lighthouse tower is missing, and it is also cropped more closely on the left and right borders than my image thus could not possibly be the original image. In addition at 94kb it is also not a "higher resolution" image than my original.
Apparently the "scchousing.net" image was taken from Commons and altered without providing credit as to where it came from. However as I released my image in the Public Domain, I effectively gave permission when I did so that it could be used in this way. You can see from a Google image search that this image is currently used on many other sites. (Also none of the others of these versions are missing the "light" on the top of the lighthouse tower nor are they as closely cropped as the derivative image.)
As noted above, I am the original creator of the image, own its copyright outright, and long ago made it Public Domain on my own site (DigitalImageServices.com) which contains a link to its Wikipedia Commons page, and would like it to be restored to Commons so that it can be used to illustrate articles on EN:WP and the many other Wikipedia projects as well as be freely available to others who wish to use it on their own sites in conformance with CC-BY-SA. I would also appreciate if the image could be restored to the four non-EN:WP pages from which it was delinked. (I have already restored a new non-Commons version of my image to the EN:WP pages on which it appeared.)
If you have a suggestion on how to mark this image on WP to avoid this happening again I would appreciate that being done. Centpacrr (talk) 16:35, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
This looks to me to be pretty straightforward. Clearly this should be restored. I think the simplest way to prevent this happening again would just be to copy this discussion to its talk page once it is restored. - Jmabel ! talk 20:25, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi. This image should be undeleted. It was first published in Spain in july 1932 and deleted on May 2012 because, it was said, " That's less than the 80 years required by Spanish law to be into the public domain". Nowdays, 80 years have elapsed so the image is in the public domain. Thank you. Cvbr (Talk) 01:56, 05 Jan 2013 (UTC)

Hi. This image should be undeleted. It was first published in Spain in 1933 and deleted on May 2012 because, it was said, " That's less than the 80 years required by Spanish law to be into the public domain". Nowdays, 80 years have elapsed so the image is in the public domain. Thank you. Cvbr (Talk) 01:59, 05 Jan 2013 (UTC)

There is nothing in the Spanish law requiring 80 years -- the magic number is 70. However, it is usually 70 years after the death of the author. 70 years after publication applies only if the author chose to publish the work anonymously.
Therefore, in order for these images to be restored you must prove in each case either:
  • the author died before 1943, or
  • the author chose to publish the work anonymously. Please note that the fact that we may not know who the author says nothing about this question. "Unknown" does not prove "anonymous".
.     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 02:26, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Actually according to w:List of countries' copyright length, it is 80 years for deaths before 1987, or in the case of anonymous publication, publication before 1987. If that is wrong, can you point us to a Spanish publication indicating otherwise? It may be in Spanish or English. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:30, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Looking at COM:CRT#Spain, it seems that it is always 80 years since death of the author if the author died before 7 December 1987. If the author died before that date, it says that you should use the old copyright law, and the old copyright law lists no separate copyright term for anonymous works, which may mean that the term for anonymous works also is life+80 years if the author is anonymous. Anyway, anything first published in 1923 or later is still protected by copyright in the United States per COM:URAA. --Stefan4 (talk) 03:07, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I took the pictures from the website of the Spanish National Library, (pdf ancient publications): http://www.bne.es/en/Catalogos/HemerotecaDigital/. I think the magazine's name is "Mundo Gráfico" (Graphic World). They were published without author's reference. I do not remember the exact number/month of publication (that information was included in the description...Maybe you could tell me this data if you can retrieve it, and then I'll show you the link to the magazine in pdf). On the other hand there are thousends of photos published before 1942/1933 with no reference to author, and I'd like to know if I an entiltle to publish them on Wikimedia Comons. Thanks!. Cvbr (Talk) 19:59, 06 Jan 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, Spanish works made in 1923 or later can't be uploaded. Many Spanish works made before 1923 can't be uploaded either. --Stefan4 (talk) 03:09, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Also, please remember that "we don't know the author's name" is not the same as "published anonymously". In order to use the "published anonymously" provisions of any country's copyright law, you need to show that the author deliberately did not take credit for the work at its first publication or any time thereafter. Proving that is usually very difficult. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:07, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have three problems with this.

The first is that this appears to be a professional, posed, portrait. It looks to me very unlikely that the subject took it himself as claimed above. It is far more likely that the copyright is owned by the photographer.

The second is that the permission above is very casual. There is absolutely no indication that Mr. Bohm understands that he is licensing the use of his image for use anywhere, including commercial use and derivative works. Although it doesn't say so, I think what appears above amounts to a Wikipedia only license.

The third is that the WP:EN article-to-be (Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Lawrance A. Bohm) reads like a sales brochure for Mr. Bohm's services. I am uncomfortable with Commons supporting what looks like a publicist's work. Bradley J. Mancuso, who is our requester here and the sole author of the article at WP:EN, works for Mr. Bohm.

Therefore, as INC says above, we need both a license from the actual photographer, using the procedure at Commons:OTRS and some consideration of whether this violates COM:ADVERT. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 22:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

IMMEDIATE COPYRIGHT INFORMATION.[edit]

To Whom it May Concern: I was asked to provide some photo’s for a Wikipedia page about me and the Moon Rock Project. What is frustrating is even though the person who posted the pictures did it correctly and even though I provided a detailed explanation for how I obtained the rights or permissions to each, to this address previously, periodically one or another of these pictures gets taken down by a party that apparently cannot be communicated with. For example, the other day a picture showing a book cover by Joe Kloc and published by the Atavast was taken down. Yet here is the permission to use this by Joe Kloc and the Atavist. Joe Kloc, the author and illustrator, sent me the link to be used. Likewise, a picture was taken down today with me and my grandson in it. The photographer for Clear Lake Independent School District advised me that Clear Lake ISD has a fair use policy and that I could allow Wikipedia to use it. Yet that one was also taken down and is still down. Is there some way that a notice could be posted letting the parties taking the pictures know that they are allowed? The graduate students working on this page are getting frustrated. Dear Sir: My name is Joseph Gutheinz and I donated pictures to the Joseph Gutheinz Wikipedia page some of which have been challenged. Please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Gutheinz Here is an explanation of each.

1. The first picture is a publicity picture of me taken in my office for which I have full use rights to, that I gave to WildWeb Studio’s that posted the picture.

2. The second picture is of Ross Perot and me when I was a Federal Agent, the picture was taken of me by another Federal Agent with no restrictions as to use. We were both on duty at the time.

3. The third picture was of me with a pointer with two DCAA Auditors in it. It was taken by a NASA Photographer and distributed to the press and me and there NASA does not prohibit its use. In fact NASA provided me a copy within the past few weeks.

4. The 4th picture was created by NASA for me when I was a Federal Agent and is part of a public handout I was permitted to distribute. I have used the handout while teaching and in two speeches.

5. The 5th picture is of Postal Inspector Bob Cregger and myself while we were both on duty, taken with my camera by another on duty Federal Agent form U.S. Customs.

6. The Medal was acquired from a Public source.

7. The picture of the Mir was acquired by Wild Web Studios from a public source.

8. The picture of Sandra Shelton was provided by Sandra Shelton with permission to use it in Wikipedia.

9. The picture of my granddaughter and I was provided taken on my camera by her mother, Sarah Gutheinz with permission for me to use it as I see fit.

10. The picture of Elizabeth Riker was given by Elizabeth Riker for the Wikipedia page with her permission to use it. She has already used it once with a story she wrote for the Capital City Weekly in Juneau Alaska.

11. The eleventh picture down from the top was taken by the Clear Creek Independent School District and I was given permission to use it by the photographer.

12. The picture of the Case of the Missing Moon Rocks cover authorized for use by both Joe Kloc, the author and artist and by the publisher, the Atavist.

13. The last picture is another NASA picture, where it was sent to me without restriction. Which is NASA’s policy about the use of its pictures.

NOTE: I also donated some family pictures that are not up yet, they are: 1. A picture of my father in the Korean War taken by a Marine. –My father’s camera.

2. A picture of my father in the Vietnam taken by a Marine.-My father’s camera.

3. A picture of my father in or about 1960, taken at his home by a friend or family member.-Taken with his camera.

4. A picture of me and my sister Dianne taken by a family member in 1984.

5. A picture of the Gutheinz family taken in 1987, with no restrictions provided as to its use.

File:Odd Henrik Johnsen Scuba Diving.jpg[edit]

"okay to use on wikimedia commons" is not a sufficient permission. See Commons:Project scope#Must be freely licensed or public domain. Also you provided wrong information with your uploads: its not entirely your own work, you are not the photographer and it is not created in 2013.

Thanks for the feedback, I've actually taken the picture and also scanned it myself, the picture is of my father Odd, and taken on a little island outside of Bodø where he tried his new underwater camera box for the first time with his diving company "Polardykk AS" (means Polar diving), it was one of the first underwater cameras in Bodø at that time, and I remember it well since he was very proud. I was about 15-16 years old at that time, I can just remember it was taken around late 1960s, probably 68 or 69. I thought the date when uploading a picture was the time it uploaded, and not the date, so that is my bad. I schould have added a better description, I wanted to show the early photographyequipment and photoequipment of the 1960s. I will send an email, but would appreciate your help in restoring the picture as I feel it is a good picture that schould be given to commons.

File:ISN 1017.jpg[edit]

This was one of the redirection deleted without any meaningful explanation by former administrator User:Jcb in the final months of his administratorship, when they closed Commons:Deletion requests/File pages moved by User:Geo Swan.

I requested restoration of most of the deleted redirects at Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive/2011-07# Request to undelete some redirects...

There are about 900 files connected with WikiLeaks highly controversial publication of formerly secret JTF-GTMO assessments of the Guantanamo captives' risk factors and history. Because the WikiLeaks site was under a serious denial of service attack uploading these important files took well over one hundred hours of my time, spread over about two months.

My first undeletion request took almost two months to close -- far too long. The long delay ended wasting about two dozen hours of my time.

File:ISN 1017.jpg is the one last redirection that the former administrator deleted that it would be useful to have restored, and I request its restoration. I explained why these redirections were useful in the first request for undeletion, and various other places, so I won't repeat the explanation yet another time.

Category:Cluj-Napoca Orthodox Cathedral[edit]

I ask for the undelition of the following files:

  • File:Catedrala_Ortodoxă_din_Cluj.jpg - street scene with the cathedral towering huge over in the center of the image
  • File:CatedralaOrtodoxaCJ.JPG - panorama of the city, with the cathedral dead center, about 2/3 of the height of the image
    This goes under "Copyrighted work X is identifiable, but is a small part of a larger work, so that the larger work cannot easily be shown without showing X. X is a part of the larger work, and its inclusion is unavoidable.". It might be high (although I doubt the 2/3 ratio), but the cathedral takes at most 15-20% of the horizontal size, therefore is a small part of the whole picture.--Strainu (talk) 10:28, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • File:CatedralaSfMihail (113).JPG - panorama of the city, with the cathedral dead center, about 2/3 of the height of the image
    Same as above.--Strainu (talk) 10:28, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • File:Cluj iarna.jpg - cathedral is half the image, the balance is a lighted tree and a snow covered tree, neither of which would be useful without the cathedral
  • File:Cluj-Napoca - CJ-II-m-B-07354.jpg - night scene with large, unlit, foreground crowd that is just a gray mass. The brightly lit cathedral is dead center, about 3/4 the height of the image
    So what you're saying is that if the photographer had used a flash, the image would have been acceptable? This is silly. It's a picture taken with the camera above the head, how much more can you ask from such a position?--Strainu (talk) 10:16, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • File:Cluj-Napoca, Avram Iancu Square.jpg - street scene with empty street, trees to the right and the cathedral about 1/3 of the image on the left. The cathedral is the only prominent object in the scene other than the trees, which are not notable
  • File:Catedrala Ortodoxă Cluj 10.jpg - interior view, with one of the most ornate, complex (and therefore original) chandeliers I have ever seen in the foreground, and the background covered with original art. In addition to the architecture, virtually everything in the image except the windows has a copyright. Some of the art may be de minimis, but not all of it is and certainly the chandelier isn't.
  • File:Catedrala Ordotoxa din Cluj panorama.jpg - city panorama - the cathedral is dead center and towers over all the other buildings in the image. Since all the other buildings are nondescript, this image would have no value without the cathedral
    Incorrect. Most of the buildings in the place and the street are historic monuments, so the image would be relevant even without the cathedral. Also, the cathedral is the tallest building in the area, it was meant to tower over the other buildings. There is not much one can do to prevent that.--Strainu (talk) 10:16, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I think the phrase "The claims of de minimis are silly -- just because there are other buildings in the image does not make the principal subject de minimis." from Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_in_Category:Cluj-Napoca_Orthodox_Cathedral is a gross exaggeration. At least 1 of them was a picture of a gathering where the cathedral happened to appear, another one contained a panorama of the whole plaza and another had a chandelier which is not original enough for copyright. I think Jameslwoodward has not analyzed these pictures with enough attention and they should be discussed again.--Strainu (talk) 20:29, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have commented beside each of the images in the list above. I stand by my deletion, including the word "silly". With the possible exception of the last image, the cathedral is the only thing in any of the images that has any educational value. The test of de minimis is whether something would be missed from an image if it were cropped out. In all of these, if the cathedral were cropped out, the image would be out-of-scope. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:02, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Responses above--Strainu (talk) 10:16, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
I also want to note that I'm only sticking to Commons:De minimis. Technically, under the Romanian law, every picture where the cathedral is not the main subject would not infringe the architect's copyright - that would certainly include these pictures and some others.--Strainu (talk) 10:28, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Strainu says:
"Also, the cathedral is the tallest building in the area, it was meant to tower over the other buildings"
which is exactly correct. Not only the dome, but also the nave and transepts are taller than the surrounding buildings. As a result, the cathedral is inevitably the main subject of any image that includes it. Strainu goes on to say:
"There is not much one can do to prevent that."
which is also true, but it does not somehow free us from the requirement that we respect the copyright of the architects. This is precisely the reason that many countries have FOP -- it is hard to take pictures in cities that have recent architecture without infringing on the architect's rights. Unfortunately there is no FOP for commercial use in Romania. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:12, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

 Not done Sorry, I think that law is daft, but we don't make decisions on whether or not we like law—we're obliged to follow it, not just for our own sake, but for the sake of our re-users. The claims of de minimis hold no weight as the cathedral is clearly the subject of the photos. In, for example, the first image, the inclusion of the surroundings is entirely incidental. The cathedral not only dominates, but does so to such an extent that the photos would be of next to no educational or informative value if they couldn't be used to illustrate the cathedral.

I've been mandated by Camille Renversade (a friend of mine) to update the current portait on his wiki page. The last file I updated was the good one.

  1. It has been previously published on the copyrighted web site http://www.jds.fr/agenda/spectacles/semaine-anglaise-51040_A.
  2. It appears there in the form of a post card, or perhaps an advertising card for the movie. That card has a copyright.
  3. Although Renversade may own a copy of this image, there is no evidence that he owns the copyright and has the right to freely license it, as required here. The copyright is almost certainly owned by the photographer.

Commons:Deletion requests/Milad Tower[edit]

There is a request via OTRS that the files in Commons:Deletion requests/Milad Tower be restored. This is based on an understanding of FOP in Iran. The basic argument is that copyright of buildings only covers buildings, plans, models, etc. and does not cover pictures of the buildings. It refers to the "Law on protection of copyright and authors and artists" ratified 1348, Art. 2, Par. 7, as well as Article 3 and Article 5. A look at the law here left me unsure what he was trying to prove by reference to those sections.

He also uses this article (in English) as an authority, quoting that "The copyright act does not, however, prevent anyone from taking or painting pictures of any building visible from a public place, or displaying such pictures." That article, however, does not address Iranian law at any point.

Google Translate doesn't do a great job with Farsi, so I could be misunderstanding the arguments. To see the entire argument (in Farsi), see ticket:2012041010003126 - I didn't want to post the statement here directly because it is several paragraphs long and doesn't come with its own copyright release. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 04:13, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I am unconvinced. In fact, I would say that the no-FOP case is stronger in Iran in many other countries because the law is more explicit in several respects. The law (in English translation, as cited above) reads, in part:
"Article 2. Works protected by copyright law are as follows:
(1. - 6. omitted)
7. Architectural works, designs, sketches and buildings.
(8. - 12. omitted)
Article 3. Author's rights include exclusive right to publish, broadcast, perform and publicize works, and further right to any financial and intellectual profit resulting from his work or name."
Article 2 is much broader than most country's law which read "architecture." -- this makes it very clear that the buildings are covered as well as plans, models, and drawings.
Fundamentally, copyright law regulates the making of copies of a copyrighted work. It is well established that those copies do not have to be in the same form -- you do not have to paint a copy of a painting to infringe the artist's copyright -- a photograph or a silk-screened tee shirt also infringe. A 2D photo of a 3D sculpture infringes.The interpretation put on it above would allow photographs of anything -- buildings, sculpture, paintings, books, etc. That would make the law toothless.
Finally, I might argue that Article 3 not only prevents photographs, but anything that publicizes the work. Thus one could argue that even a text article about a building infringes on the building's copyright, particularly if there were a commercial use. A literal reading of Article 3 would preclude Wikipedia's writing articles about works covered by the Iranian copyright law. While I am fairly confident that it is not actually applied that way, it is much more comprehensive than most other copyright laws in its description of author's rights -- I see no reason to read it more loosely than say, France. .     Jim . . . .

Thank you, that is helpful. I see that the sender is a professor of law in Iran, so his words have credibility. On the other hand, as I said above, it is well established that derivative works do not have to be in the same form. A photograph of any created work is a derivative work of the original, whether the original is text, photograph, oil painting, sculpture, or building. Our correspondent is reading into the law something that is not the case in any other country -- that somehow a photograph of a building is not a DW of the building. Despite the professor's statement, I am uncomfortable accepting that the Iranian use of copyright is so much weaker than that in other countries, particularly given the specific mention of "Architectural works, designs, sketches and buildings" which is much more comprehensive than the US or France (among many others) which say simply "architecture". I am also concerned with Article 3, which our professor does not address. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:24, 18 January 2013

File:Philip Alexius de Laszlo-Princess Elizabeth of York, Currently Queen Elizabeth II of England,1933.jpg[edit]

Closure at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Philip Alexius de Laszlo-Princess Elizabeth of York, Currently Queen Elizabeth II of England,1933.jpg (as well as my own statement there) seemed a bit hasty. DrKiernan provided evidence [4] (a print of the image from Mid-Week Pictorial (1914-1937), an American weekly of news pictures, labelled with the date 1933) showing that it was published in the United States in 1933. Since the original painting is itself dated 1933, simultaneous publication in the US within 30 days is a strong possibility - although difficult to prove, this is about the best evidence I've seen for simultaneous publication. A quick search of copyright renewal records turned up nothing, so there is a good chance it is {{PD-US-not renewed}}. In Europe it is already {{PD-old-70}}, as Laszlo died in 1937.

Although Yann already undeleted this work I've re-opened the UR because I believe he was too hasty in doing so - mere hours after the UR was opened on a file that is not clear-cut at all. I want to assess the broader consensus on works like this where we have limited evidence that the work may have been published within 30 days. Please give your opinion. Dcoetzee (talk) 12:50, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Is there any way to find the exact date of publication of that magazine? Also, how do we know whether it was published with permission from the painter? The painting might have been published without a copyright notice in the UK in 1933. In that case, it immediately entered the public domain in the United States, and then it was possible to publish it in the United States without asking for permission from the painter. --Stefan4 (talk) 13:11, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
I read Vol XXXVII No. 22 July 15, 1933 as the date on the issue. It's not completely clear and the year is partially obscured, but it's consistent with the date on this, which is clearly April 22, 1933 Vol. XXXVII No. 10. 12 weeks after April 22 is July 15.
Stefan, do I misunderstand you? I don't think publication in the UK without notice put something in PD in the USA back then.
.     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:20, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't think it mattered where it was published without copyright; all copies needed a copyright notice. It was a system designed to put most works, especially foreign works, in the public domain.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:49, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Unless it was concurrently published in the US within 30 days (see {{PD-URAA-Simul}}) this work was restored by the URAA (Laszlo died in 1937, UK copyright was ongoing in 1996), so notice was not required for its UK publication. The dates above suggest that the timespan was actually more like 12 weeks than 30 days, which would suggest that deletion is the way to go in the absence of further evidence. Dcoetzee (talk) 14:56, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
The thing is that if it was published without notice in the UK in 1933, then it entered the public domain in the United States in 1933, and unless it was published in the United States within 30 days in 1933 with permission from the painter, then the copyright was restored in the United States. Also, if the painting already was in the public domain in the United States back in 1933, the US publisher didn't need to ask for permission from the painter when publishing the painting in 1933. For example, see s:American Tobacco Co. v. Werckmeister about a German painting which was exhibited in the United Kingdom without a copyright notice in 1894. No one questions whether a copyright notice was needed for copyright protection in the United States if the work was published in the United Kingdom, and the court only discusses whether this constituted publication or not (which it didn't since the museum didn't allow people to take photos at the museum). --Stefan4 (talk) 15:14, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
I see now. Because it was PD at the time in the US a US magazine could publish it without permission or penalty, but that wouldn't constitute publication (by the copyright holder or with their permission), so there's definitely doubt about whether it's PD-URAA-Simul. Am I understanding correctly? Dcoetzee (talk) 20:24, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I meant. --Stefan4 (talk) 20:52, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

If the image permission's link on the deleted File:Somauk.jpg collage's description page is pointing to File:20081214 mo farah.jpg instead of to File:Mo Farah3a.jpg, it's perhaps because I accidentally forgot to update the link when I substituted the former pic for the latter during a collage update.

File:British Guiana war tax stamp on cover.JPG, File:Canada war tax stamp on postcard.JPG,[edit]

These two images ought not to have been deleted, for the following two reasons:

  1. While there a number of circumstances in which we typically agree to delete an image upon the uploader's request, there is usually a good reason behind the request. There is no rationale here. The uploader of his/her own free will uploaded these images and released them into the public domain (althoug they were undoubtedly already in the public domain). We need more than just "I no longer wish it to be displayed on Wikimedia Commons" to delete them.
  2. These are derivative images. The uploader isn't even the author/creator, so it is unclear why we we would delete them simply because (s)he asked.
  3. The first of these two images was in use on en.wp, so we ought to have paid even more attention to points 1 and 2 than we did.

This undeletion request is not intended to be a criticism of INeverCry, who does a fantastic job handling massive amounts of deletion requests. It's not his fault that no one caught/commented on these particular deletion requests, making them seem uncontroversial. I have notified INeverCry, in the off chance I am missing something here. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 20:15, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

I agree with you in principle, and if the images were just of the stamps, I'd be inclined to undelete them. However, both contain names and addresses and the latter includes what looks like personal correspondence, so there's a potential privacy issue. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 20:37, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Neither actually contains a whole address. The former is between two companies, neither of which is likely to even exist anymore. The latter seems like a business note, not personal correspondence, and was written on a postcard (thus low expectation of privacy even when it was written). And both are almost 100 years old. Even census information in many countries is publicly released when it's that old. I don't think there is much of a privacy concern here, but even if there was, that's a cropping issue. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 20:51, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Jenniffer-gonzalez-28th-house-of-representatives-portrait.jpg[edit]

User Martin H. removed the file alluding textually : <<Copyright violation: Not a "he portraits of Governors, First Ladies, Senate Presidents, House Speakers and Military heroes in the Capital Building " but a photo taken from the website>> in which it is making a big mistake. While it is true that the photograph was taken from the website of the House of Representatives of Puerto Rico (http://www.camaraderepresentantes.org/legs2.asp?r=03534cdw53Official website of House of Representatives of Puerto Rico). This is the official portrait of Jennifer Gonzalez Colon, Speaker of the House and therefore it is obvious that her photo is hung in the Capitol Building of Puerto Rico.

All official portraits of the representatives are hung in the Capitol Building. The Capitol Building houses the Senate and House of Representatives of Puerto Rico.


If the picture is any then I would have accepted any removal, but not any image, is an official photo of a representative, I licensed the file under the following license: PD-PRGov-OfficialPortraits. because this license applies here.

The license and OTRS ticket these images are very clear:In accordance to the Government of Puerto Rico the portraits of Governors, First Ladies, Senate Presidents, House Speakers and Military heroes in the Capital Building of Puerto Rico are public domain. This applies worldwide.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As a general rule, although all works produced by the US Federal government are PD, those produced by States and Commonwealths are not. Even Federal official portraits are not PD -- their copyrights belong to the artists or photographers. Puerto Rican law cannot change Federal copyright law -- unless the artists or photographers have freely licensed the works, they are not PD. The reasoning used in {{PD-PRGov-OfficialPortraits}} is flawed -- the fact that an official portrait has been paid for with public funds does not make it PD. See, for example, Commons:Deletion requests/File:George H. W. Bush - portrait by Herbert Abrams (1994).jpg. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 15:46, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Indeed. That OTRS ticket does not apply to photographs, but to the official paintings, and so was not appropriately used for this photograph. Now moving away from this undeletion request and into the reasoning used in that template: according to the OTRS communication the rights for the paintings (such as File:Kenneth McClintock PR.jpg) no longer reside with the artist, but were transferred as part of the commision, which appears to be different than the case of the Abrams painting mentioned above.

Puerto Rico has autonomy in many aspects, especially in the legal as it is not a state that essentially form part the Union of the United States, is a COMMONWEALTH.
Regarding the License consigned in Template:PD-PRGov-OfficialPortraits, it is completely legal and legitimate. The reasons used are those who say in the permission granted for Kenneth McClintock (Secretary of State of Puerto Rico 2009-2013) with OTRS ticket granted by the OTRS Community. --G. Coronades | Do you have a question? 00:47, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Every state has its own constitution and Supreme Court. None of them are allowed to disobey the Federal Constitution. Puerto Rico does not, in fact, have its own State Department (in the sense of "Foreign Office" or the US State Department) -- the Federal Law allowing Puerto Rico's constitution would not allow it, as it speaks specifically to local governance. It has no embassies. It does not have its own copyright law -- in fact, it is explicitly mentioned at 17 USC 101 as being included in the Federal copyright law on the same basis as the fifty states. .     Jim . . . .

Did you receive a response? If so, please tell us the 16-digit number from the subject line. I not, please be patient—it can take some time to process all the emails we receive. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:16, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is OTRS ticket #2012121010013181. The permission given there by the photographer is
"The 2 photos of High Hollow submitted by <name snipped for privacy> are photos I personally took and I authorize them for use in documenting this historic Philadelphia estate home."
I am sorry to say that this is far from a sufficient permission. Both Commons and WP:EN require permission to use images anywhere for any purpose, including commercial and derivative use. Please read Commons:OTRS and have the photographer send an appropriate license of her choice. Please have her reference OTRS ticket number 2012121010013181. .     Jim . . . .

File:Alien Hominid Game Boy Advance UK.jpg [edit]

Why was the picture deleted? It is a good reference picture that shows the obscure only to UK version for the Alien Hominid Wikipedia entry. I took the photo myself and it does not show content such as the inner pages of the manual. The picture is just as one would see if buying the game in the store, any possible copyright is only inside the pages of books and manuals.

Jackie Collins photo to undelete[edit]

I am requesting for file: JackieArmsCrossedBlackPool.jpeg to be undeleted. I am Jackie Collins assistant. She owns the rights to this photo of herself, and would like it to be included on the wiki page "Jackie Collins", a page about herself, author Jackie Collins. She agrees to release this image to the Creative Commons. Thank you,

Jennifer Daugherty Executive Assistant to Jackie Collins office@jackiecollins.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cyotethndr (talk • contribs) 21:04, 29 January 2013‎ (UTC)

There has never been a file named File:JackieArmsCrossedBlackPool.jpeg on Commons. The only file that you yourself have uploaded is File:JackieCollins2.jpeg which does not show the subject with her arms crossed. That file has been deleted because it apparently came from a web site with an explicit copyright notice.
While we can frequently figure out what file is meant in situations like this, it is very helpful if you give us the correct name of the file that you think was deleted, or who uploaded it. Please remember that Commons file system is very particular. X.jpg, X.JPG, X.jpeg, x.jpg would all be different files. Also please remember that there are almost 16 million pages on Commons and that we deal with around 10,000 of them every day.
Once you know what the actual name is, please send a license using the procedure at Commons:OTRS.
