File:Finger cut.jpg[edit]

This got caught up in the (otherwise fine) Commons:Deletion requests/Files on User:Didym/Mobile upload/2014 March 13-16, closed as "All out of scope and unclear copyrightstatus". However, I see no reason why this image should be out of scope: it's a good quality, documentary photo of a small cut in a finger. I also see no reason why the copyright status should be unclear: the file has the same dimensions as the other uploads of this user (ProjectManhattan (talk · contributions · Number of edits)), and the EXIF data is also consistent with the other uploads of that user, so the claim of "own work" appears entirely credible and the {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} is also OK. As for it having been unused: it would make a fine addition of an every-day wound in the small gallery at en:Wound.

For the above reasons, I think this should be undeleted. BTW, this user uploads a lot of very useful photos! Lupo 11:11, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Files uploaded by User:Zhengan[edit]

Please see the deletion requests: Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by User:Zhengan.

It was deleted on the basis that there is no Freedom of Panorama in China. However, here is the template that shows there is Freedom of Panorama in China: Template:FoP-China. Thanks, Zhengan (talk) 16:58, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

That seems to be a clear case of deletion based on a faulty assumption. Undeleting and adding {{FoP-China}}. --Jarekt (talk) 17:06, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. License states: „(...)allows reproduction of works in a public place if the author and the name of the original work is attributed.“ Both name and author aren't given, only the own work tag is set. That still needs to be addressed. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:07, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Since there are multiple copyrights involved, it seems extremely unlikely that we will be able to get artists' names and titles for the second and third images. While it is more likely in the first case, even there I think these should have remained deleted until we had the necessary information to comply with the law. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:56, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It appears to me that what is reported as a FOP like provision of Chinese law, is more a kin to a -BY licence to re-use. These images therefore need the Attribution or they should be re-deleted. LGA talkedits 00:22, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes you are right about the attribution requirement of {{FoP-China}}. It definitely affects the first image and I will re delete it if Zhengan can not provide information about the author. In the other two, individual artworks seem to be such a small part of the image as to fall under Commons:De minimis rule. --Jarekt (talk) 04:09, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion appealed. Photo from Flickr has proper license, and appears to be the original work of the photographer. Photo has since been shared freely, under this license. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ‎Lihtning (talk • contribs) 12:07, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

You refere to the flickr file https://www.flickr.com/photos/87306045@N05/8112205648. I see no reason for contesting the deletion without providing any new information. The flickr account obviously is fraud. I gave a source http://www.justjared.com/2012/10/21/kanye-west-kim-kardashian-birthday-dinner-in-venice/, the publication there predates the flickr upload by one day. At the source I gave author information is visible, see the EXIF of the high res version at the source I gave, it reads: Photo by Matteo Tagliapietra, Copyright MT-MS/CIAO PIX.

File:Barbara Field by Boutet de Monvel.jpg[edit]

Hello,

The Frick Collection / Frick Art Reference Library owns the copyright to this negative and all prints made from it, including ditigal. The photographer, Ira W. Martin, was an employee of The Frick Collection (specifically, its Photoarchive Department) and all negatives produced by him were funded by the institution. Again, we hold the copyright to this negative; the present owner, while he/she may control access to the actual object and own the copyright to other photographic reproductions of the object, does not own the copyright to this negative.

For additional information regarding this issue, please contact The Frick Collection's consul, A. Lonshein.

Thank you,

Ellen Prokop Associate Photoarchivist — Preceding unsigned comment added by Frick.Photoarchive (talk • contribs) 13:29, 4 June 2014‎ (UTC)

And how did you exactly become the copyrightholder instead of Bernard Boutet de Monvel? Natuur12 (talk) 13:36, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The question is not the copyright on the photo. As a reproductive photo, it would not be a copyrightable work anyway per Bridgeman Art Library v. Corel Corp.. The problem is the copyright of the painting (or drawing; you didn't specify in the work description). The painting or drawing photographed was painted by Bernard Boutet de Monvel, a French painter who died in 1949. His works are in copyright in France until 70 years after his death; i.e., the painting would be out of copyright in France only on January 1, 2020. As your photo is either a derivative work or a copy (depending on which school of thought you follow) of the painting, you would need to have the consent of the rights owner on the painting in order to publish your photo under a free license. It may well be that the Frick Collection does own or did own that painting, but does it also own the copyrights? Physical possession of a copyrighted item does not imply possession of the copyrights on the item. If you want that image to be restored, please clear up the following points via COM:OTRS:
  • When and where was this painting first published? (Important for determining the source country. Note that the Commons requires images to be free in the U.S. and in the source country.) I ask because according to the article Bernard Boutet de Monvel, he worked for Harper's Bazaar under an exclusivity agreement from 1926 to 1933 (yet the article states that he did other work during that time). So if this is one of his works for Harper's Bazaar, it might have been published originally in the U.S., and then it might qualify as a U.S. work, not a French work.
  • If a U.S. work, what's the copyright status? When was it published? In what form? With or without © notice? Is it in the public domain in the U.S.? If so, why? If not, do you/does the Frick Collection own the rights, or do you have the rights owner's permission to publish the photo under a free license?
  • If a French work: it's copyrighted alright (until and including December 31, 2019). So, do you/does the Frick Collection own these copyrights? If not, do you have the rights owner's permission to publish the photo under a free license?
Lupo 14:27, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose These were deleted after long discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Luftbild Grindelhochhäuser Hamburg.jpg. The issue is that the license template used requires attribution "Visible near the picture". That is in conflict with the the CC license and with the practice in the many print uses which put all attributions on one page. It is also in conflict with the standard practice in video and film, which put credits at the end. Finally, it is in conflict with all WMF projects, for which credits can be seen only by clicking on the image. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 09:59, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep per my arguments at AN. It is not our job to determine whether what is written in file pages is conflicting with the license granted. The only case were a given license become invalid (if the user is eligible to grant such a license) is if he edit the contents of the license and call it a CC license. In all other cases, the extra terms can be considered as invalid, if conflicting with the terms written inside the license. It is a bad practice to determine a license is invalid; it will make all the existing reusers into trouble. Jee 12:53, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  • As I wrote more fully at the cited discussion, that is not the way the law works, at least in the USA. If you add conflicting terms to a printed contract, the additions control. Jee, given your later comments at the cited discussion, do you want to change this comment? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:06, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm in a private discussion with that user and hope he will accept my proposal. So please keep this open for a few days. Otherwise, (if he do not willing to change the wording), you can keep them deleted. As far as I know he changed the initial wording "below the image" to "near the image". My proposal is to "near the image or refer the CC best practices for a suitable option" (as I did in my templates).
  • On the other point, see this. Jee 02:13, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have read here and at COM:AN and agree with Jim that with the additional restrictions applied to the licence there is a significant doubt whether "near the image" would be enforced by a court and until such time as they are released with a COM:L compliant licence they should remain deleted. LGA talkedits 21:35, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The problem is the custom license tag, created by the uploader. Since he is the only one who can change the license and he either doesn't or doesn't want to understand the problem, the only way out is the deletion of all media tagged with this specific custom license template. The uploader blames Commons, our policies, CC-licenses, and everybody else but doesn't recognize that he created an unsolvable problem. What a shame. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:46, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Hedwig, this is the 1000th time I'm requesting our admins and senior volunteers to handle our contributors in a gentle way. (Hope will agree with me.) I read most of those discussions (many in German; so difficult to follow), and the initial DR is started with an invalid reason "custom template". Later people find the word "below the image" and he changed it to "near". I didn't see anybody suggested a better word there. And it seems he is now under block; so can't comment here. Let him some time, and try to handle it without hurting his dignity in a peanut court. Jee 02:28, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol keep vote.svg Agree I restored the custom license and added 2 Versions. Here are the permalinks: Version 1, If technically possible... and Just please...

File:Red Funnel, Red Jet 5, IMO8954415.jpg [edit]

The file was deleted because there was no licensing information, not because people didn't like it. All files on Commons need to be suitably licensed. Microchip08 (talk) 14:33, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Dear Sir,

I am the copyright holder on that image, and would like it reinstated (as I am the editor and designer of that piece). I will quite happily take off any copyright notices on it so it can be used with regards the article on Skank Magazine and the policies of wikipedia.

File:Logo of the Kokoda Track Foundation Logo.jpg[edit]

Image is from Buna, Papua, on 25 December 1942, and is clearly tagged as public domain – see the Australian War Memorial image 014028: "Image copyright: Copyright expired - public domain, This image is in the Public Domain" and carries the Creative Commons Public Domain Mark. If you click through the hyperlink to the Australian War Memorial Copyright expired - public domain page it says:

Copyright expired - public domain

This term describes material held in the National Collection that is clearly out of the period of copyright protection. Material that has passed out of the period of copyright protection is known as being in the "public domain" and is free of known copyright restrictions.

You do not need permission from the copyright owner to copy this image from the Memorial's web site, or to reproduce it elsewhere.

That seems fairly explicit. The image is also here at commons at File:Buna.jpg. The addition of text in the logo is non copyrightable lettering. Mojoworker (talk) 15:57, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Well, the problem was that it remained unclear if the file is public domain in the United States. I understand that the image is PD in Autralia but com:licensing requires files to be free in the US and the country of origen. We need to know when the file is published for the first time to know if the file is PD in the States or not. Btw, the file was not tagged correctly. Natuur12 (talk) 16:24, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
@Mojoworker: As the Kokoda Track Foundation is an Australian based organisation just adding the text to form a logo could well mean the image is copyright, Australia has almost no threshold of originality for copyright protection. I can't see the file so can't comment if this would be the case for this logo. LGA talkedits 22:51, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
@LGA: It is the logo bottom left at this page. Natuur12 (talk) 23:02, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm, that's a close call, not enough to over turn the DR IMO, best if it is uploaded to enwp as either fair use or as PD for the image and PD-Textlogo for the text and tagged {{Do not move to Commons}}. LGA talkedits 00:15, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
@Natuur12: The photographer, George Silk, was a combat photographer for the Australian government when the photo was taken. This would seem to be covered by condition 'E' of {{PD-Australia}}, "Commonwealth or State government owned photographs and engravings". According to that template, (the Australian) "Copyright has expired if...taken or published more than 50 years ago and prior to 1 May 1969". Since the photo was taken 25 December 1942, the Australian copyright expired 25 December 1992. It (and File:Buna.jpg) should probably be tagged with {{PD-AustraliaGov}}. According to w:Template:PD-AustraliaGov (the template's different there on Wikipedia than here on commons), it is in the public domain in the US since "it entered the public domain in Australia prior to 1996". @LGA: The editor that uploaded the image, w:User:Bluhdorn works for the KTF and the text of the Kokoda Track Foundation website is Creative Commons licensed CC-BY-SA. See The Kokoda Track Foundation's copyright notice: "The text of this website is available for modification and reuse under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Australia License and the GNU Free Documentation License (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts). width=44px" I'm not sure why the difference in {{PD-AustraliaGov}} templates, or if it's a {{PD-font}} or fair use issue, but if it makes sense to move the image to Wikipedia, then please restore it temporarily and I'll move it there. Mojoworker (talk) 00:54, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
@Mojoworker: I also noticed the CC-BY-SA notice on the website, but it clearly only covers the text. No one here is trying to be difficult but just do the right thing by anyone who has rights in the logo; have you thought of asking the Kokoda Track Foundation to provide COM:OTRS with the required consent then it can be hosted ?LGA talkedits 01:29, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
I went ahead and moved it to enwp: w:File:Logo of the Kokoda Track Foundation.png tagged as fair use and "do not move" but also noting it's likely PD (and tagged as such) as it fails to meet the threshold of originality since it's a reproduction of a public domain work. So, I think we're done here. Thanks. Mojoworker (talk) 07:21, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

The previous undeletion request was denied. However I was made aware of the following image which is also a WWII image from an unknown photographer which wasn't removed and was uploaded by a Steward: Huwelijk_Meinoud_en_Florrie_Rost_van_Tonningen.jpg. So I would like to have this image reinstated with the same license as the above-mentioned image, as it is also an image that falls under the same EU law about works by anonymous photographers as 70 years have passed since it was publicized.

  • 1. The copyright in a work of which the author has not been indicated or has not been indicated in such a way that his identity is beyond doubt shall expire 70 years after 1 January of the year following that in which the work was first lawfully communicated to the public.
  • 2. The same shall apply to works of which a public institution, association, foundation or company is deemed the author, unless the natural person who created the work is indicated as the author on or in copies of the work which have been communicated to the public.
  • 3. If the author discloses his identity prior to the end of the term referred to in paragraph 1, the duration of the copyright in the work concerned shall be calculated in accordance with the provisions of article 37.

apparently, the idea that posters are only published in books in unsupported.
Berkley Law "Public Domain Handbook" p. 16 [4]: "A work is considered “generally published” if the author authorized at least one copy of the work to be made available to the general public without regard to who would receive a copy and without restriction on further uses of the work. Works such as posters, buttons, newsletters, fundraising letters, and brochures that were widely distributed will likely be considered generally published....A work can be considered generally published even if it is not offered in sufficient numbers to satisfy public demand; the distribution of a single copy may be enough to be classified as a general publication"

File:Bruce Pasternack 1974.jpg[edit]

this image is an old press photo here is the front of photo and back of photo this image was published in 1974 and has no copyright on it so it falls into the public domain (PD-US-no notice) because

  • The photo has no copyright markings on it as can be seen in the links above.
  • United States Copyright Office page 2 "Visually Perceptible Copies The notice for visually perceptible copies should contain all three elements described below. They should appear together or in close proximity on the copies.
1 The symbol © (letter C in a circle); the word “Copyright”; or the abbreviation “Copr.”
2 The year of first publication. If the work is a derivative work or a compilation incorporating previously published material, the year date of first publication of the derivative work or compilation is sufficient. Examples of derivative works are translations or dramatizations; an example of a compilation is an anthology. The year may be omitted when a pictorial, graphic, or sculptural work, with accompanying textual matter, if any, is reproduced in or on greeting cards, postcards, stationery, jewelry, dolls, toys, or useful articles.
3 The name of the copyright owner, an abbreviation by which the name can be recognized, or a generally known alternative designation of owner.1 Example © 2007 Jane Doe." Dman41689 (talk) 06:00, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As was made clear at the DR more information is needed in relation to the publication of this image, if it appeared in the newspaper with a copyright notice and a few were say given to the subject as gifts then 17 U.S.C. § 405 sub-part 1 would apply. LGA talkedits 06:16, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

You at least need to demonstrate that when it appeared in the newspaper it did so without a copyright notice and preferably on more than one occasion. I also recommend that you read 17 U.S.C. § 405 to better understand the exceptions to the notice on single copies, for example sub-section 3 is also often overlooked, if this was distributed with a requirement to have the notice and this copy was produced contra to that requirement it would also be covered. LGA talkedits 07:20, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As LGA says, if it was published in 1974, then we need to know where it was published. The fact there exists a copy of the photograph without a (c) proves nothing. Newspaper file copies will not have a (c) on them, but the notice in the newspaper would cover their use. If the image has not, in fact, been published, then it has a copyright until 2094 or 70 years after the death of the photographer, whichever comes first. .     Jim . . . .

File:Crematorium (14246988242).jpg[edit]

This deletion was neither based on the DR nomination, or any issues arising from the DR discussion. Based on their personal opinion of quality and objection to the file name, the deleting admin made the decision based on their own values and for reasons they did not discuss in advance of taking action.

The photograph was a casual one taken in preparation for the LGBT related production of the stage play "Crematorium". I do not understand the deleting admin's objection to the filename (on their talk page), had this been part of the DR it would have been discussed. In terms of value, were anyone wanting to research Kargaltsev's stage production of this work related to the murder of LGBT people during the Holocaust, then rehearsal photographs would be educational, showing the actors off-stage and illustrating their process. Kargaltsev often takes instagram style photographs, these are not intended to be studio shots, they are casual photographs showing the creative process and the evolution of his work as an LGBT artist in New York.

With regard to the Flickr Review, it was made clear this was not the reason for deletion. I have separately addressed this point in advance of the file being deleted. -- (talk) 08:47, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Precisely, Flickr Review process gave no result as the file seems to be nonexistent of Flickr. In effect, file is suspicious for copyvio. Is there any evidence it is available under a free license? Ankry (talk) 10:41, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Exactly. It is said to be an upload from Flickr, but Flickr review was not completed and therefore we have no way of verifying what it's license on Flickr was. This is not at all about content, but about process. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:46, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
I believe (I cannot check the image page) that an explanation of the automated verification process using the Flickr API was added before the page was deleted. If not it can be added. Jameslwoodward please check over the DR for details and see User:Fæ/Flickr_API and User:Fæ/Flickr_API_detail.
Another bot review as a rationale for deletion is pointless bureaucracy, particularly as this is not possible for restricted files as occurs on Kargaltsev's Flickr stream. Note that *all* files on Kargalsev's stream are always released as CC-BY, even his profile indicates this as part of his philosophy for his works.
For those unaware, I am a license reviewer, active on OTRS and probably the most active independent volunteer uploader for Commons. I have uploaded most of Kargalsev's Flickrstream to Commons and carefully verify the uploads. This file is certainly not "suspicious for copyvio" given my manual verification, Kargalsev's consistent free releases of all his works and the additional custom Flickr API checks that I run for these uploads. Lastly, copyright was not the rationale for deletion. If anyone wishes to set a precedent that makes it virtually pointless for me to use the Flickr API, then please raise a second DR. -- (talk) 11:38, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

  • prove that file is PD.
In this case, the first failed. No matter the reason it was deleted, we need a proof it is free to undelete it.
If it helps you, I remind from the file contents:
|author=kargaltsev
|source=http://www.flickr.com/photos/kargaltsev/14246988242/
Maybe kargaltsev decided the file is not really free and uploaded accidentally, maybe you make a typo; we need to verify the file license first. If you can provide evidence the file is free, we can continue on other reasons the file was deleted/should be undeleted. Otherwise, it is no-op. Ankry (talk) 12:28, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Lots of maybes, keep in mind that copyright was not the rationale for deletion and URLs change or expire all the time, we do not automatically delete files for that reason. If you want to raise a DR for copyright, then do so. The fact is that the license was both automatically validated and checked by hand by a license reviewer, me. If you want me to add the license review template to the file, then there are sufficient grounds for me to do so. You raise several irrelevant points such as "prove that file is PD", please don't take the thread on a tangent like this when you can see the details of the case and the source Flickrstream. As for Kargalsev's statement, a copy of it is published, publicly on Commons, at Category:Files from Sasha Kargaltsev Flickr stream, in this scenario an OTRS ticket would be pointless, as it would be the same information that anyone can verify by looking on Commons. -- (talk) 12:39, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
But lack of proper copyright as a valid reason to refuse undeletion, regardless what the deletion rationale was. If you want to continue discussion on this basis, do it somewhere else.
If links fail before we can verify them via Flickr Reviev or via Wayback machine, the files are lost for commons. We do not hunt for meteores; each uploader can ask his image to be deleted for a week after their upload. Ankry (talk) 12:53, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

(edit conflict) Again, the Flickr review bot failed because the image was not on Flickr when the bot tried to review it. Given that there is no way to independently verify what license it had on Flickr, it qualifies as a {{Speedy}}. The fact that it had a DR with a different reason for deletion is irrelevant -- without an independent Flickr review, or other proof that it is PD, we can't keep it.

Our rules require an independent review -- you can't review your own uploads -- for the simple reason that if the image's license is ever challenged, it is essential that there be an independent set of eyes that has verified its source status. The uploader can't do that because he has an inherent conflict of interest..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:55, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

This makes it look like my mistake was building an automatic API check and using it rather than making it appear to be under another account. Obviously, if I ran *the same software using my same machine* under a bot account called something like Faebot-Flickr-checker or similar, everyone would take that as evidence, even though the procedure would be identical and no real extra validation would be added. I'll think about creating another bot account for this bureaucratic purpose which I can kick off any time I do more uploads like this. This discussion should be sufficient evidence to justify a bot flag for the account as the current bots cannot do what my script does. -- (talk) 13:08, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Jim. 1) Fae uploaded the image with a Flickr source; 2) A bot tagged it as being in need of a review; 3) A separate bot failed the review; 4) A user added a no source tag; 5) Fae removed the no source tag, and opened the DR; 6) Fae added a note purporting that his propriety script (i.e., not a community-approved bot) had confirmed permission (a self-review explicitly disallowed by COM:LR). This is very simple: Fae uploaded an image with no support for a purported CC license. Now, instead of providing support--either through a functioning source link or OTRS permission from the Flickr user--he is content with irrelevant nonsense about scope/name issues; that the DR (which he started) was off point; and that the license review process is "pointless bureaucracy" (whilst simultaneously boasting about being a license review and OTRS member).

User:Fæ, creating a bot would be fine, but a bot under your control cannot independently verify images you have uploaded. The key here is "independent" -- a second set of eyes, which can include bot "eyes", has to provide the verification that the license was actually as it says. This is not because your Commons colleagues do not trust you, but because the verification is done to convince a judge in a potential future lawsuit that the image actually had the license that we claim. Without the independent verification it would be your word against that of the Flickr user. With the verification, a trusted Commons user with no reason to lie would back up your word. Your bot can't provide that verification for your uploads..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:06, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Sounds paranoid, particularly if the code is openly published (and so can be produced in court) or could have multiple operators. By the same logic, Magnus would be unable to use his own automated bots for any verification of his upload projects. Anyway this is a matter for the bot approval process, now this thread has reached a negative outcome. -- (talk) 14:24, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

File:The endangered gray wolf canis lupus.jpg[edit]

The file was brought up for discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:The endangered gray wolf canis lupus.jpg as being a duplicate. Within a short number of hours, User:Denniss had closed the discussion and redirected the file. I was asked by Fae to look at the DR in question, and I undeleted the file with this rationale. Instead of discussing the action, Denniss has chosen to wheel war, and has now deleted the photo entirely still claiming that it is up-scaled. In my browser, the image does not appear to be up-scaled at all -- it simply appears that the public-domain-image website has managed to get a copy of the image in higher resolution.

File:Imelda Marcos in 1954.jpg[edit]

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Imelda Marcos in 1954.jpg.This file was deleted by the reason of URAA and returned by undeletion requests.And a deletion request was submitted again this time, and it was deleted by user:Fastily. The deletion reasons are as follows. "Unclear copyright status. Unless we have definitive, explicit written and/or textual, tangible evidence from a credible, verifiable source naming this file as freely licensed under a Commons compatible license, we simply cannot host it on Commons." I feel doubts about that decision. And I asked him, but he did not answer my questions.

Dear Sir. I have some questions for your measures.

1)Why do the last time and the same human being handle it this time?

2)At Commons:Project scope/Precautionary principle.It is clear that Diaz does not have the copyright for this photograph. Where did you find significant doubt?

3)At Commons:Copyright rules.It contradicts a mention of Dealing with uncertainty that you wrote. I want your explanation in regards to that.

4)You do not touch it at all about Probatio diabolica and rough proof. Do you not know these two?

5)It is possible for nobody to prove the first publication. "This is not the first publication." If somebody says so, We cannot upload the photograph in Commons. Is it that this is right?

Please answer about the above.--Y.haruo (talk) 13:33, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

"Unquote

However it is admitted that assume in consideration of the subject by here( Commons:Copyright rules#Dealing with uncertainty). Obviously his decision contradicts this content. The original copyright holder of this photograph is unknown, but I show that "rough proof" is stamped to this photograph circa 1954. This is a seal of the publication. Therefore, it is assumed that this photograph was published circa 1954. By the above, I express my disapproval of this decision and submit undeletion requests of this file.--Y.haruo (talk) 13:30, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

If it was published in 1954, then it became PD in the Philippines on January 1, 2005. Since the copyright had not expired in the Philippines in 1996, the URAA date, the U.S. copyright would have been restored and will expire in 2050. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:36, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose COM:L details how it is essential to know the exact date and location of publication in order to determine if a image is PD in the US and without that information establishing how this image became and remains PD in the US we just can't host this image on commons. LGA talkedits 20:52, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a studio proof of an image said to be from around 1954. While it may have been taken in the Philippines, it is notable that the photographer's stamp on the proof is in English, so the actual site of the photograph is uncertain. No evidence has been offered of its being published anywhere before its appearance in a 2003 film. Note that a studio photographer sending the subject a rough proof does not constitute publication. Publication requires that the work be seen by the public.
During the period when this photo was taken, just before her marriage, she was working as a model and beauty queen. While it is entirely possible that this image was published then, it is equally possible that it is only one of many taken at that time that was never used.
Here's where it gets complicated. If it was published in the Philippines in 1954, then it became PD there in 2004 (The rule for photographs is 50 years after publication or 50 years after creation, which comes second). However, if it was not published in the Philippines until its use in the 2003 movie (at a time when it was still under copyright), then its first publication in the Philippines was in 2003 and it is under copyright until 2053.
So, unless someone can prove that it was actually published in the Philippines in 1954, we cannot restore it until it becomes PD in the Philippines in 2053.
I have ignored URAA, which, if we respect it, would keep this image under copyright in the US for many years. It's irrelevant, though, unless someone can show that the image is PD in the Philippines..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:39, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Files in Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by MotherForker[edit]

There seems to have been a misunderstanding in the second closure.

There are two distinct notions. One is the license on the works. The other is the price of the fixed copy. One does not affect the other.

From the notice reproduced in the first DR, the Argentinian TV states clearly that it is the owner of the copyright on the works and that it released the works under CC-by-sa. There does not seem to be any reason to doubt any of it.

Since the works are under CC-by-sa, it does not matter if the copy fixed on this DVD set from edition A was given without payment to persons of group A and another DVD set from edition B may have been distributed differently to persons of group B.

Apparently, non-profit organizations benefited from the possibility of obtaining a DVD set without payment. Good for them. That is the price, or absence of price, of the distribution. It has nothing to do with the license of the contents. The license of the contents in this edition is CC-by-sa. The contents can be reused under CC-by-sa.

There may have been another edition of DVD sets, which may have contained the same works or different works, which may have differed by the price, and which may or may not have the same licence on some or all of its contents, but none of that matters for the Commons files.

The only thing that matters for the Commons files is that the notice on the DVD set that was actually reproduced in the Commons files states clearly that its contents are under CC-by-sa.

The fact that the files uploaded to Commons were recopied from one of the DVD sets from the batch that were given without payment does not affect in any way the validity of the license on the contents.

That is assuming that the Commons files did actually come from a DVD edition bearing this CC-by-sa notice, which is implicit from the fact that the files were tagged with the CC-by-sa tag, and I don't see why it should be doubted.

Please see the explanation above. Your extra bit refers to the price, or in this case the absence or price, charged for the distribution of the DVD sets to a category of people. It has no incidence on the licence. No supplemental confirmation is needed. The license is printed clearly in all letters. It is obvious that RTA know what they are doing, they place those works under CC-by-sa, and that's exactly what they want to do. There's no reason to argue with them about it. They explain that they encourage the reuse. We may not be used yet to see a lot of organizations offering free licenses but that's not a reason to refuse those that are open enough to actually put their stuff under free licenses. -- Asclepias (talk) 02:23, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Qingdao Metro Logo.svg not understand why it would be deleted, It's in public domain[edit]

This file is in use of the logo of Qingdao Metro, which is a public transportation project. The reason to delete this file is hardly understood. Without this file we cannot let the wiki page of Qingdao Metro show the project's logo. --GordonQD (talk) 06:12, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

It was deleted following Commons:Deletion requests/File:Qingdao Metro Logo.svg. I can't see what the image was, but if it was the logo then the simple way would to be to uploaded it to enwp and make a claim of fair use over there. Commons can't host images that are not free from copyright. LGA talkedits 06:19, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Lettering is OK, but the green symbol may be copyrighted. If it is in public domain (released by author, not eligible for copyright, etc.), you have to provide a proof for that. Permission for free use is not satisfactory for commons. Ankry (talk) 07:18, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
I cannot upload the file due to the system pop up that the original one was deleted, therefore the wikicommon refuse to upload the same file as it has been deleted. The copyright problem is, the logo was selected from a wide range of artworks by local citizens who sent their proposed metro logo to the council and then published on the council's newspaper, obviously neither the metro corporation nor the city council did pay the artist any in exchange for the exclusive copyright. From my understanding, this kind of logo should be considered as 'Public Domain' because it was created by a citizen, 'donated' (no consideration received) to the metro project. The only argumentation could be the logo of Qingdao Metro Corporation, however is is not the registered trademark. It is not like MTR in Hongkong, which is franchised the railway operation from the government, Qingdao Metro Corporation is a wholly owned entity by the city council. Additionally the file uploaded to wikicommon seems to be a hand drawn version done by Li Chao. --GordonQD (talk) 10:29, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Nude male in art.jpg[edit]

Same reason as that in the responses: File:Nude male in art.jpg taken in photostudio has much higher resolution and clearer background than other photos of nude male. In addition, this photograph shows underarm and pubic hair, the common secondary sex characteristics for both male and female.

Template:Copyheart[edit]

I do not see any issues with Template:Copyheart, it is just another form of {{PD-self}}, which is trying to be cute. Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Copyheart lists the reason for deletion that the license does not explicitly mention that it can not be revoked, but it also does not mention that it can - it just does not say anything on the subject. Many of our licenses which were not written using legalese do not explicitly mention if it can or can not be revoked, see for example {{Attribution}}, {{PD-self}}, {{Beerware}}, {{Expat}} and many other. In the mean time we have bunch of images without license, since license was deleted without deletion of the files using it. --Jarekt (talk) 15:51, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

@Slowking4:, @Jameslwoodward:, @Hedwig in Washington:, @Léna: Inviting original discussion group. --Jarekt (talk) 15:57, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
why is this category deletion not linked to the history? Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Copyheart. deleting a template as if it were a file, hilarious. note the foreign language versions of this template are not deleted. i've seen a lot of out of process deletions lately. why?
what is the standard of licenses that you will accept? is this license "equivalent" to GDFL? if not why not? why do we have high handed drive-bys with no discussion? you need to set a higher standard of collaboration of curating images, improving licenses, and deleting or restoring images that were wrongfully deleted. Slowking4Farmbrough's revenge 16:33, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I nominated it for deletion for three reasons, only one of which is named above. The most important of the three is that, as pointed out at its web site, www.copyheart.org, it is probably not legally binding. We certainly do not need to have files here that have a "license" that is not binding on the licensor. Also, as was mentioned above, it makes no claim to be irrevocable, as required by Commons rules. While we may have other templates that are not explicitly irrevocable, that is a different problem. "Other stuff exists" is never an acceptable reason for keeping something anywhere on WMF projects.

I did not mention at the DR, but add here, that its use will discourage use of files bearing it. When an outside organization comes to Commons to find a file for a specific purpose, they don't need ambiguity in licensing. They know exactly how to deal with a CC license. If they see the copyheart "license", they will simply move on to a different file. Please remember that we aim to be a perpetual repository of images. We have files that are marked for undeletion in 2130, long after all of us will be dead. We don't need ambiguous licenses that are not much different from CC, except for the cute name and the ambiguity. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:03, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

discourage use as opposed to GDFL? really? doesn't simplicity encourage re-use as opposed to complicated legal tl;dr? what is ambiguous? "Copyheart means we WANT you to copy and share. No restrictions." the quote "Probably not, although you could test it" means since it is yet to be tested in court, you cannot be certain about the copyright status. which by the way is a critique about the prevailing false certainty about what a court would say about URAA items or PD-art. will you now nominate all "public domain" licenses because they are ambiguous? because these items were donated before CC and just as idiosyncratic. i see you are opposed to cuteness, what policy standard is that? Slowking4Farmbrough's revenge 17:46, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Beerware and Expat (MIT-License) is used for software and it's documentation. As Jim states: We certainly do not need to have files here that have a "license" that is not binding on the licensor. I would like to change that statement to We can't have....

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose We really don’t think laws and “imaginary property” have any place in peoples’ love or cultural relations. Creating more legally binding licenses and contracts just perpetuates the problem of law – a.k.a. state force – intruding where it doesn’t belong. That ♡copyheart isn’t a legally binding license is not a bug – it’s a feature!

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment OK so what should we do with files which were uploaded under such license?

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment We can't just delete everything. Quick glance: there are about 60 files with this template, most are from one uploader and are CC licensed as well.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Jarekt that every license is irrevocable unless clearly specified otherwise. We don't need lengthy licenses like CC and GFDL; we have simple statements like {{Attribution}} too. But I see one problem. http://copyheart.org/ is only takling about use; nothing about adaptations.

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Coins of the Netherlands[edit]

Those files where deleted because of the URAA, however the URAA is never a sole reason for deletion. Those coins are PD in the Netherlands according to Commons:Currency#The_Netherlands. Natuur12 (talk) 21:31, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Permit me, for a moment, to assume the coins are PD worldwide and ignore the PD status of the coins themselves (and given the recent closure here that ruled that Commons has no community agreement to host files affected by the URAA, I don't want to step into this can of worms). Even if we assume the coins are PD worldwide, the discussion at the DR says that these photos were not taken by the uploader. Absent evidence that the original photographer freely licensed his picture of these coins, we can't use these photos, since {{PD-Art}} can't be applied to photos of 3D articles (see Commons:When_to_use_the_PD-Art_tag#Photograph_of_an_old_coin_found_on_the_Internet). —RP88 (talk) 22:28, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
However, if the original photographer did license these photos with a Commons compatible license, then we have to wade into the worms of the URAA ;-) —RP88 (talk) 22:34, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, well. I took a look at the files and I see no reason to assume thay those files are not own work. Two are taken from a flickr stream, the files where freely licened. Some photographs have been uplaoded and apperantly be taken by a trusted contributor name Ivanh1. Two or three of the files have been uploaded by a new contributor but I see no reason to assume a copyrightviolation :)Natuur12 (talk) 22:37, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
I can't see these files, so I can only go by the discussion at the DR. Absent the ability to examine them myself, I am, however, happy to accept your conclusion that the photographers of these coins released their photos under the terms of Commons compatible licenses. So i guess it's into the URAA we go... —RP88 (talk) 22:45, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Some files in German Reich stamps 1938-1942 are missed in the undeletion process above[edit]

Hi, you did a great job in undeletion so many pictures of German Reich stamps above, many thanks. But I miss some pictures which are not undeleted until now, these files are not in the list above. If there are no reasons to keep them deleted, please undelete them as well. Thanks again to all of your hard work. One more question, I dont know why these files now are free or not but when the list has to be with 70 jears after publication then 1943 has to be free as well? There are some I will show you below also.

To the Administrator:

I would like to request a motion to undelete the following files that I have uploaded for Lito Mayo's page which were all the found items in "Gallery of Work" section of the artist's stub:

Please restore these items. The images are essential to the academic integrity of the wikipedia page for Manolito Mayo. I am giving permission to use these images publicly in Wikipedia. I am the owner of the copyrights of these works by my father, Manolito Mayo. When he passed away, I have been granted all the legal rights to share, publish, or use all or any portions of his works. I inherited the sum of all his works when he died in May 4, 1983 in the Philippines.

Furthermore, I will be adding new images by the Lito Mayo in the future to broaden the scope of his influential works.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I note that these are TIF files, see File_formats#TIFF. TIF is not a format the Commons or WP supports well, and TIF files should not, as a general rule, be kept, so, in any event, these should be uploaded again as JPGs. There is also the question of Conflict of Interest. The WP article which you cite is largely written by you. As a rule, WP:EN discourages people who are closely related to the subject of an article to work on it. It is not at all clear whether the article falls within the scope of WP:EN or Commons.

In any event, as noted at the deletions, because these are not your own work, keeping them on Commons will require a license using the procedure at Commons:OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 01:12, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Lossless files (e.g. TIFFs) should never be deleted just because a lossy format versions (e.g. JPEGs) are available. Indeed, no file of an allowed type (COM:PS/FT, which includes TIFF) should be deleted just because it is also available in another format. I make no comment about the copyright status of these files.

File:Superlambananas, Runcorn railway station (geograph 4020288).jpg[edit]

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Misinterpretation of Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, Section 62 (1) (b) "sculptures, models for buildings and works of artistic craftsmanship, if permanently situated in a public place or in premises open to the public."

The reason for deletion was that the sculpture was, according to FOP, not permanently installed, i.e. "permanently situated". The misinterpretation of the law is in the assumption that the sculptures have to be "permanently situated". The sculptures can either be "permanently situated in a public place" or merely be "in premises open to the public". The sculptures were in the latter category. No breach of copyright occurred. According to interpretation of the point of law, permanent installation isn't compulsory. 93.96.83.249 00:37, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

I think what you're saying is that rather than being construed as
permanently situated AND (in a public place OR in premises open to the public),
You are instead suggesting it be interpreted as
(permanently situated AND in a public place) OR in premises open to the public
Your interpretation would mean that anything situated in open premises (museums, railway stations, shops, etc etc etc) was ineligible for copyright. That seems dubious at best and is certainly not how we have interpreted it here. To give an example, your example would mean that a small garden statue, as one might buy in a shop, would be eligible for copyright while sitting on the pavement outside (not permanently situated), but would not be as soon as it was brought inside the shop. That seems a bit ridiculous. Unless you can provide legal documentation that the act should be interpreted as you state, we should apply COM:PRP and continue the way we have been. -mattbuck (Talk) 09:35, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Ridiculous but true. Your understanding of my interpretation is correct. The law in question doesn't explicitly say that it has to be "permanently situated in premises open to the public", it can be implied, however. Nonetheless, there is a missing comma, after "permanently situated". So, your intended interpretation wouldn't necessarily apply. EP111 (talk) 13:41, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The UK FOP provision can not be interpreted that way as to do so would be at odds with the EU Copyright Directive where Article 5. section 3 (h) only allows EU countries to have a FOP provision for works "located permanently in public places".

As you wish. That directive is also an example of why many would wish to leave such an organisation. EP111 (talk) 13:41, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose "In a public place" and "in premises open to the public" clearly both refer back to "permanently situated". If you try to detach the latter from "permanently situated", you are left with a non-parallel construction. The rules of construction won't permit that.

Multiple files images of single subject.[edit]

All of the following items were deleted for copyright violations.

Proper permissions were given from their original publisher. According to their website, which was used as a reference, here's what it said;

"That includes all of our original content; comics, games, music, novels, video, and web (that the following social media channels; HSGmi Instagram)"
"educational purposes (that includes any reference works; like encyclopedias, educational journals, a thesis, or an essay.)"
"This work by Heaven Sent Gaming is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available at http://heavensentgaming.com/about/copyright-content-usage/."

Should I mention that on further images from this source on the Commons? Sorry for the confusion!

By the by! I requested a move on one of the mentioned images, File:7009ca98bcc811e2979f22000a1f8ae3 7.jpg. DunDunDunt (talk) 21:28, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

@DunDunDunt: The link clearly says that the content is copyrighted and licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License if they are linked and relinked, redistributed, reblogged, retweeted, and reposted. So we can't host the files because Commons files are hosted to be redistributed even Commercially. See COM:L for details. Thanks! ~ Nahid Talk 22:10, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
And also, If a file is released under both "CC-BY-SA" and "CC-BY-NC-SA" then No license is permissible. The collage is necessarily a copyright violation, since it can't satisfy both licenses at once. ~ Nahid Talk 22:24, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

@NahidSultan: "files under a "non-commercial" license are OK only if they are at the same time also released under a free license that allows commercial use." according to Commons:Licensing.

I'm sorry, I'm being a bothersome newb, thank you for spending time on helping me through this. They are clearly stating that licensed usage is circumstantial. Their website clearly states that under certain circumstances it is "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License". Perhaps I need to clarify with a custom template of some sort? DunDunDunt (talk) 22:39, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

The limitation of when cc-by-sa-3.0 can be applied is in contradiction with the license. So, such a permission is invalid, IMO. Ankry (talk) 22:52, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Ankry, you are right and @DunDunDunt: See my second comment above. Click here for details. ~ Nahid Talk 22:56, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
@Ankry: & @NahidSultan: It is not a "contradiction with the license", I've done work at the Creative Commons nonprofit org. "Permissions beyond the scope of this license" are usually amended to CC licenses. Unlike most, they are not restrictive on their license, simply being honest with it's usage. There are several organizations that working under the "CC BY" lisense, however due to the non-legally binding information on their "Permissions" may as well be NC as well. I have messaged them to ask if the commons are within the scope of their permissions. Once I get a reply I'll post here. There is no cause for the hostility towards their usage of the license, especially calling it invalid. Legally speaking anyone "releasing" something into the Commons is doing so irrevocably; But, even so, original copyright holders take legal precedence. DunDunDunt (talk) 23:12, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
CC license with extra limitations ammended is no longer the CC license. It is another license, and such a modified license is not accpted in commons. Ankry (talk) 23:22, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
"Note that, although CC strongly discourages the practice, CC cannot prevent licensors from attempting to impose restrictions through separate agreements on uses the license otherwise would allow. In that case, licensees may be contractually restricted from using the high-resolution copy, for example, even if the licensor has placed a CC license on the low-resolution copy." Link Like I said, I've done work the organization. Also, Wikimedia commons does allow it, as long as the intentions of the publisher are followed through, in a way that benefits Wikimedia in general.DunDunDunt (talk) 23:31, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

@Ankry: & @NahidSultan: They finally responded,

"Yes, that would be acceptable. You can upload as many images of our original characters, screenshots of an original video, photos of the staff from around our site or our Instagram, you can even use a comic or video or two.

As long as your not uploading a collection of comics or videos. But, again, you could upload a few for descriptive purposes. We don't want people hosting huge useless mirrors, unless it's for posterity, like The Internet Archive or something.

Thanks for asking. I'll make it more clear on the Content and Copyright Usage page. Peace!

- Mario"

It's good to see some clarification. It's within the scope of their license. link DunDunDunt (talk) 00:54, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

One last thing, if you believe that "such a modified license is not accpted in commons" . Then I would like to point you to prominent examples ESA-Hubble, and the United States Secret Service on money illustrations. When I worked at the commons the primary objective was to free content creators from oppression, as well as freeing others from that same oppression. You can also check the 257 other licensing examples at Category:Custom CC license tags. I will create such a license for future uploads from the Heaven Sent Gaming source. DunDunDunt (talk) 06:21, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The website clearly states that the CC license only applies for educational purposes. While this would be sufficient to host them for our own use Wikimedia Commons has a licensing policy that requires all material hosted here to be usable by anyone for any purpose. Noncommercial restrictions for retweeting or the like are not compatible with this. Regards, -- ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 09:33, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

@ChrisiPK: by that logic, we shouldn't allow ESA-Hubble images. link DunDunDunt (talk) 09:53, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

There is nothing in the ESA-Hubble copyright information which is inconsistent with our rules. The site's pointing out the several non-copyright restrictions that are true of any commercial use of images does not change the fact that ESA-Hubble usess CC-BY as its license. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:05, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Although the message from Mario is a small step in the right direction, it fails to solve the problem.

  • The web site has an NC license, which is unacceptable. Mario's "permission" says "you may upload" -- it does not speak to the question of what our users may do. Is the "NC" removed for all users of images and videos uploaded to Commons? Or just for WMF? Or just for Commons itself?
  • It does not say how many or which images are permissible. If we keep more than "quite a few", what happens -- does the whole permission go away, or just the last images uploaded.
  • Who is Mario? Since he gives us no corporate title, we can not know that he has any authority to license the images.
  • And, finally, we require that such messages come directly from the source, using the procedure at Commons:OTRS, to allow an OTRS volunteer to independently verify the validity of the message.

And, by the way, I disagree with Chris that Commons is an NC site -- because we solicit contributions, we ourselves are not NC. Except for personal web sites that do not advertise their owners' skills and do not carry advertising, there are actually almost no NC uses. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 9:59, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

I agree, @Jameslwoodward:, these are great points you bring up. Thanks for being helpful. There are three people in their group, only one "Mario" and he is "American designer; cofounder of Heaven Sent Gaming", according to Wikidata. I will ask these questions as well, they are great points. And, to @ChrisiPK:, I don't think they are restricting the use of tweeting for commercial use, don't be silly. I will ask this of them, but I'm heading to bed maybe we'll get a response by morning. Thanks to all of you for your time, this has been edifying. DunDunDunt (talk) 10:10, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, from reading the linked copyright statement it looks like they are only okay with a certain subset of commercial uses/users. This is insufficient for hosting the images on Commons. The page clearly states that the images are under an NC license unless you're using them for some sort of good purpose (see complete list there). This is not an acceptable licensing scheme for Commons. It would be easiest if they would simply get rid of the NC license. Regards, -- ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 14:22, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

"It would be easiest if they would simply get rid of the NC license." They are allowed to license their creations under any circumstances they wish. This is completely within the licensing scheme on Wikimedia Commons. We cannot tell ANYONE to change their license. DunDunDunt (talk) 19:19, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Howdy, it's-a-me Mario. I am the cofounder of Heaven Sent Gaming, I am the Lead Designer of the team, and we are within compliance of Commons:Multi-licensing "CC-BY-SA or CC-BY-NC-SA (or both) is permissible". I have had a lawyer aid me in correcting the language of our Content and Copyright usage, I have also edited a custom CC license Template:Heaven_Sent_Gaming (created by User:DunDunDunt) here on the commons for correct usage of our content with the lawyers help as well. This has been quite a silly mess, now I'm gonna get back to sipping my sweet tea. Mystic Sonic (talk) 22:02, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose According to Com:L an uploader can use multiple licenses, only one has to be free. I am not sure if this particular license is covered by Commons policy since it is nothing else but a NC license even so some peeps may be able to use the cc-by-sa-3.0 license. IMHO this is against the intentions of the project and just a loophole to get some files uploaded to Commons. Can't find the scope of the pictures anyway, but that's another question. And: Nice link to Hubble. BUT: Hubble doesn't restrict the usage (except for the logo) and the license allows commercial use. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:54, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello, User:Hedwig in Washington, it is not my intention to get this content onto the Wikimedia Commons. I didn't even upload these images. Another person, User:DunDunDunt, contacted me about whether or not this was an acceptable use and I responded. I have no intentions in changing my content license to fit in with any group/person that I find no vested interest in; in other words I have no reason to find "a loophole to get some files uploaded to Commons".

I don't know what "the scope of the pictures" is either, but by their name(s) they are of my business partner, Isabel Ruiz. Both of us have IMDB's and I think we have MusicBrainz IDs. So I think we're low-end subjects, nothing worthy of a Wikipedia entry or anything like that. Heaven Sent Gaming has been requested to be put on the english Wikipedia, but I couldn't even see that having anything more than a stub-article. I wouldn't be interested in building anything about my stuffs on Wikimedia's projects, especially since that would be completely against the concept of Wikipedia in general. I do my Heaven Sent Gaming stuff in my spare time, when Isabel and I aren't working our two jobs.

About the ESA link, Hubble restricts ANY usage if you claim that they endorse you in any way. The point of using the link was to provide a reputable example of slight alterations to Creative Commons licensing to fit within line of a project's goal.

I will no longer be posting here about these deleted images, whoever DunDunDunt is will have to manage without me; I don't care enough about inconsequential bureaucratic talk.

However, I am interested in learning how to manage and clean the Template:Heaven_Sent_Gaming. That's a consequential bureaucratic issue that I'm willing to get a comprehension of. If you could lend me some advice, it would be appreciated. I appreciate Wikimedia's projects, and I have every intention to help further it's awesomeness. I've been around Wikimedia stuff long enough, to finally get a bit deeper into it. Mystic Sonic (talk) 06:02, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

What I meant is that Hubble images are plain CC licensed, allowing commercial use and derivative works. For scope you can have a peek here. Entry into the IMDB makes both of you relevant and therefore photos of you guys are in scope of the project. For the cleanup I'll ping a coder for you. @Rillke: Schaust Du mal auf die Vorlage Template:Heaven_Sent_Gaming falls wir die Doppellizenz akzeptieren? Danke! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 06:33, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
@Hedwig in Washington: You want me to fix the broken layout? -- Rillke(q?) 07:38, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Again, I oppose this restoration request. The proposed license template is not a free license as required for Commons use -- it places NC restrictions on some uses and goes beyond what is allowed on all uses. Mario's lawyer has crafted something that may meet his HSG's needs, but it does not meet ours, which is that all images on Commons must be free for any use in any quantity and in any combination, with only attribution, and, optionally, SA, allowed as restrictions.

And, also again, the Hubble example is a red herring. Hubble correctly warns you that you cannot use their images to endorse anything you do, but that is a non-copyright restriction. The license itself is pure CC-BY.

This on-going byplay is simply a waste of our time. Mario should either license a limited number of his images CC-BY-SA, without any special template, or go away..     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:26, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

There are plenty of custom licenses that place a restriction on some uses, which is why we have the Template:Multi-license. The Hubble link isn't a red-herring, and you shouldn't assume ilk like that from well-meaning contributors; the Hubble information is near identical to the "YOU MUST FOLLOW THESE RULES" section on his content-usage page. Mario Lucero has already stated that he "will no longer be posting here about these deleted images". And, from what I can see about his contribution history, he has no quarrel with releasing things into Public Domain, yet alone CC-BY-SA. It is not your call that he "go away.." considering he owns the copyright and therefore licensing rights. I uploaded the images, not him, and Template:Heaven Sent Gaming is perfectly within line of the project. The Wikimedia Commons Category:Custom_license_tags, is a great resource; Template:JPL_Image_Copyright and User:Chamaeleon/Copyright_2 use it well. I will be contacting a colleague of mine to see how to best shorten the text, Template:Heaven Sent Gaming, in line with the "human-readable" CC licenses. DunDunDunt (talk) 21:51, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Again.
""If you intend to publish a vast collection* of Heaven Sent Gaming's content. (more than 3 items of a particular series*, or 7 per person*/character*/subject* per publication year)", then "this file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (CC BY-NC-SA)"."
is unacceptable. There can be no limits on how many images a particular users decides to pick.
The restrictions on the use of images other than the three named are statements of law in some countries, but not all. By requiring separate permissions (using "should" rather than "may need to be") is a restriction that Commons does not accept. It amounts to turning a non-copyright restriction into a license restriction.
Also, with respect to the same restrictions -- either a fictional character is freely licensed or it is not. Any image on Commons may be printed on a tee shirt and sold -- a commercial use. The template requires separate permission for that. Not acceptable.
The final sentence
"You are free to release derivative works under either CC BY-SA or CC BY-NC-SA."
is unacceptable. Users may not put NC on Commons images that are CC-BY-SA.
.     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:09, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

You're telling me that Snoopy, Marvin the Martian, Mickey Mouse, Super Mario, and Harry Potter are "freely licensed" since there are images of them on Wikimedia Commons...

Nevertheless their license clearly allows for an image of there's, or a fan-drawn image, to be used and sold as a t-shirt or whatever. They state that you just can't mislead people into thinking that it was made, or endorsed, by them.

If a CC license is released under two separate CC licenses, others have that same right, thus why it says "You are free to release derivative works under EITHER CC BY-SA or CC BY-NC-SA." It doesn't require that BOTH be placed, it clearly says "either". Your the one making red-herrings out of everything; making mountains out of molehills.

I'd like to also state that any item released with a Commons license has "copyright restriction", unless it's actually released into the public domain. The argument your trying to make would require every image of a celebrity, private property, musician, logo, and/or any other "copyrighted" entity to be removed from the Commons. Copyright isn't an enemy of the Commons, it's why CC even exists; to give creators and users freedoms.

Though I do understand what you mean, I corrected the language to more accurately portray the copyright/content usages lines from Heaven Sent Gaming. "should" rather than "may need to be" is absolutely correct. Also, I corrected the information about their particular fictional characters. DunDunDunt (talk) 12:09, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

There is no evidence that the combination is complicated in any way, or that it is original. The file did not meet the conditions for unilateral speedy deletion without any sort of review. As for your example of the olympic rings, they are not considered copyrightable in the United States due to their simplicity (therefore covering the PD in US requirement) and were created in 1912 by Pierre de Coubertin who died in 1937 and so therefore are also PD in both France and Greece depending on which country you believe is the "origin" of the revived modern games.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are two problems with this image, either of which would require that it not be restored. First, it is not useful for an educational purpose. As noted at the DR, articles including it have been removed from two different Wikipedias. Second, it is a probable copyright violation. There is no evidence that the uploader has permission to license this work, which by his own admission above, is not his own work as claimed in the file description, but "from the publication of my teachers that I have stored". This second problem can be cured only by getting a license from the actual copyright holder, but, even then, it would be out of scope. .     Jim . . . .

    These problems do not exist. Original image [1. http://plotnikovna.narod.ru/img/t2_1.jpg] [2. http://plotnikovna.narod.ru/img/31.jpg]. The book is not written by me, I created the image. I personally scanned and I personally posted on the Internet and later to wiki. The author died in 2001. Article about it has been removed by request Alex Spade. Archive bequeathed friends. I am one of them. I can refer to the publisher, "ВОИР и Вологодский Областной Совет ВОИР (All-Russian Society of Naturalists and Innovators)" Acknowledgment request paper. The article was removed from the English Wikipedia after renaming in Russian and deleted by request Alex Spade. Explain your point of view about the educational value of the image? For my knowledge, this is one of the best teaching methods in physics. I teach at the university since 2004. Ignat99 (talk) 00:15, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Again, the fact that two different WPs have chosen to delete this material says that it is not educationally useful. You accuse Alex Spade of doing this for some reason, but neither deletion was the work of one person.
You also admit that while you may have drawn the image, it has appeared in a copyrighted book. You do not own that copyright.
Therefore, as I have said above, there are two different unrelated reasons why this image should not be on Commons. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:18, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Seoul-Ubiquitous Dream 11.jpg [edit]

No clear rationale for deletion has been provided, i.e. it's been claimed that South Korean law would place a clearly utilitarian and simple design like this under copyright, but no citation has been given to support this claim. This is a minimalist design very much in line with a lot of other content in Category:Domestic robots. I see no good reason for the deletion consistent with policy or law. --Eloquence (talk) 05:00, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The burden of proof is on you to show that South Korean law would not allow copyright of this sculpted design. It is not deleter's responsibility to cite law to the contrary. We don't know how the South Korean copyright office would treat this, but it clearly would have a copyright in the USA and most European countries. The sculpted form goes far beyond the needs of utility, which would probably be better served by a simple rectangular solid. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:27, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support At the very least, this seems a very borderline case - one that warrants a fuller DR discussion than minimal comments between the original nominator and the uploader. This was explicitly a COM:PRP deletion, which has the threshold of significant doubt. Indeed, there is doubt as to whether this would be a utilitarian design, but without references to Korean law supporting the purported strictness, I'm not convinced the doubt is at that threshold. I'm certainly not convinced that this would have a copyright in the US. For example, "if design elements reflect a merger of aesthetic and functional considerations, the artistic aspects of a work cannot be said to be conceptually separable from the utilitarian elements. Conversely, where design elements can be identified as reflecting the designer's artistic judgment exercised independently of functional influences, conceptual separability exists."

Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Unidentified people[edit]

I am appealing the decision to indiscriminately delete all of numerous images listed for deletion at Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Unidentified people.

All of the deleted files are properly licenced images, many of which were not liable for deletion pursuant to Commons:Project scope which is an official policy on Wikimedia Commons.

Deleted images that were in use, and therefore not liable for deletion, included:

Project scope states that: "A media file that is in use on one of the other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation is considered automatically to be useful for an educational purpose, as is a file in use for some operational reason such as within a template or the like. Such a file is not liable to deletion simply because it may be of poor quality: if it is in use, that is enough."

Over 40 of the images deleted in this indiscriminate culling of files were in use on other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, and therefore, pursuant to the official policy of Project Scope, are automatically in scope and not liable for deletion. Please restore all of the files listed within this massive deletion request. There may be individual image files within this request which should properly be deleted, but the action to indiscriminately delete all of the files, even those which are by policy are not liable for deletion, puts into question the decision to delete all of the files. There probably are images included within this massive deletion request which should properly be deleted as out of scope, but such images should be individually identified and nominated for deletion so each image may be judged on its own merits to determine if it is, or is not, useful for educational purposes. Dolovis (talk) 13:07, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose Dolovis does not tell the whole story. Although I have not looked at every case, all of those I did examine were added by Delvois to WP articles after the beginning of the DR. Some of them have subsequently been removed from the WP articles and, I suspect, all of them will be eventually, as the use there was mostly inappropriate.
In at least one case, Fleece jacket, he created at a new article which duplicates an existing article just to contain the image. Ironically, that image was subsequently changed for a better one, and was not in use when deleted, so the claim above is inaccurate. I would be surprised if that were the only case where the list above is wrong.
An image that is out of scope does not become in-scope when its uploader adds it to an article. Dolovis's actions may not violate the letter of our rules, but they certainly violate their spirit. We do not block people punitively, but if this happens again, a block will certainly follow. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:49, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

 Not done - Dolovis did not get the answer they liked from Fastily on his talk page, so came here and then got the same answer from Jameslwoodward. They're not in scope. Sven Manguard Wha? 18:39, 28 June 2014 (UTC)}}

I am not forum shopping because I did not get the answer I wanted from the deleting admin (as Sven Manguard) and and threatening to block an editor acting within the rules, and in good faith, is very disconcerting. I tooled this undeletion request after following the instructions given at Commons:Undeletion requests#Appealing a deletion which informed me that the process to follow was to first contact the deleting administrator, and if he denies undeletion, to then request undeletion on this page.

Without the photos available to me I am going by memory when I suggest you take a closer look at all of the deleted files, including these listed below:

  • File:2tone SG Dallas Shoot.jpg is a good photo showing someone smoking a doobie and was in educational use at w:Cannabis smoking;
  • File:Aarons-CustomerCore-1000StoreCelebration-7394 (10929264225).jpg is a good image of a hand gesture which was in welcomed use at w:List of gestures
  • File:Aarons-CustomerCore-1000StoreCelebration-7633 (10927564596).jpg shows the use of light guns and was in educational use at w:Light gun shooter
  • File:Capo (Rapper).jpg is a properly licenced image of an entertainer and was in use at de:Capo (Rapper)
  • File:Burmistrz.jpg showed the use of headphones with a mobile device and was in educational use at w:Headphones

If these images were nominated separately, they would not have been deleted, but grouped together within a nomination for a massive culling they deleted without a close look at what educational value they expressed.

Mass nominations such as this one must be discouraged because they do not allow individual images to be debated on their own merits. Dolovis (talk) 03:10, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Melanie Tipton.JPG[edit]

This is a self-requested deletion review of this discussion per this query. I deleted this image as an author requested, unused, obsolete (superseded by this), and out of scope image. The original image for reference: [10], [11]. -FASTILY 23:31, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This image is the same as another, except that this one needs heavy color correction to be usable. The other has a frame which could easily be removed.

This one should remain deleted. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:21, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. The deletion was proper, and the comments for retention at the DR and Fastily's page border on nonsense. Per COM:SCOPE, we make an exception to the educational requirement due to the "custom the uploading of small numbers of images (e.g. of yourself) for use on a personal user page" (emphasis added). When the uploader, the person who would use the image on a personal user page, requests deletion (as is the case here), the prospect of "for use" dissolves. Further, courtesy deletions are explicitly allowed per COM:D. The preceding assumes, of course, a lack of notability (i.e., educational purpose) independent of personal use. Indeed, the DR did not identify any notability (and in fact noted the lack of an article on this person). The notion that "maybe we have here a future Michelle Bachman or Sarah Palin, and we’d like to have an image of her earlier years" is ridiculous; would it not imply that we should keep images of every currently non-notable person just in case they become notable in the future? That Tuválkin considers her an "airhead" [12] (an unacceptable personal attack on Melanie tipton (talk · contribs), by the way) might be seen to undermine his protestations that she is important. More important than the potential scope issue: this is an image of Melanie Tipton purported to be authored by Melanie Tipton. The photographer, not the the mere subject, would hold the copyright; these images generally require OTRS permission to confirm that rights were conveyed to the subject. Regardless of scope issues, this needs OTRS. Эlcobbola talk 14:56, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

I demand an answer.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaam0121 (talk • contribs) 16:11, 29 June 2014‎ (UTC)

Demands will get you nowhere. Polite requests are much better.
As clearly set forth in the deletion summary, the image appeared previously at http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0ff4ff9KTGM/UuWOzL9uTJI/AAAAAAAAUfY/sfciNB17M6Q/s1600/modelo+con+gran+estatura.jpg. In cases where images have previously appeared without a free license, Commons rules require that the actual copyright holder submit a license using the procedure at Commons:OTRS. Since OTRS, like all of WMF, is staffed by volunteers, there is a backlog and it may be several weeks after receipt of an acceptable license by e-mail before the image is restored. .     Jim . . . .

 Not done per Jim. Please follow the procedure at COM:OTRS. Эlcobbola talk 16:36, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:Landschaftsschutzgebiet Tegeler Fließtal[edit]

Was created for Wiki Loves Earth and in the near future I want to upload some pictures here.--Sinuhe20 (talk) 13:28, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Please, upload pictures first. Ankry (talk) 13:55, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

 Not done Per Ankry. This was deleted as an empty category (i.e., relevant images need to exist before the category), so restoration without the presence of images is pointless. Simply upload images and then recreate the category. Эlcobbola talk 16:29, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I think the license at http://www.srichinmoycentre.org/gallery-commons is clear and gallery.srichinmoycentre.org points to www.srichinmoycentre.org so they seem to be operated by the same organization and I see no reason in asking them for a separate confirmation of the license. If nobody objects, I would restore the file and point this licensing information in the "permission" field. Ankry (talk) 16:02, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

File:Ilona Kurdy self-portrait.png [edit]

I as her only descendant release this picture - which I personally uploaded for free use into the enciclopedy -, because the article requires an illustration. Deleted by (Natuur12). Just sent notice also to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org using the template.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Merely being a relative (descendant) does not necessarily mean intellectual property rights (distinct from mere physical property rights) were transferred. Evidence that intellectual rights were conveyed from the estate to "W-v-tegetthoff" would need to be submitted using the procedure at COM:OTRS. Эlcobbola talk 16:39, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
    • Sent, as also stated a paragraph upwards (was an edit before opposition submitted). W-v-tegetthoff

Procedural close per above [14]. The OTRS volunteer who processes the ticket will restore the image if permission is in order. Эlcobbola talk 16:45, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
