File:David Guetta met de officiële bal voor het EK voetbal in Frankrijk!.jpg

Beste mensen van Wikipedia,

Een half uur geleden heb ik vernomen dat mijn afbeelding is verwijderd bij het artikel. De reden waarom het auteursschending is begrijp ik niet. De foto is openbaar gemaakt en voor iedereen toegankelijk. Veel bronnen en mensen hebben deze afbeelding ook gedeeld. Naar mijn is het juist de bedoeling dat deze foto wordt verspreid.

Ik ben bewust opzoek gegaan naar zo'n foto, omdat het heel veel gedeeld is. Hoop dat een van jullie me hiermee kan verder helpen.

Met vriendelijke groet, Sander Muijs

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The fact that this photo has been made public does not mean that anybody is allowed to use it for any purpose. This photo comes from UEFA's Twitter. Thuresson (talk) 11:15, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
Beste Sander Muijs,
Dat een foto veel gedeeld wordt betekend niet dat dit ook mag. Vaak worden foto's zonder toestemming van de rechthebbende verspreid en misschien hebben de andere gebruikers wel toestemming gevaagd. In ieder geval is het op Wikimedia Commons niet toegestaan om dergelijke foto's te uploaden. Een foto moet of vrij zijn van auteursrechten. In Nederland en België is dat pas 70 jaar na het overlijden van de auteur of de rechthebbende dient een licentie af te geven die commercieel gebruik toestaat door eenieder die zich aan de licentievoorwaarde houdt. (Er zijn uitzonderingen maar ook daaraan voldoet deze foto niet) Zolang er niet aan deze voorwaarde is voldaan kan een foto hier niet geupload worden. Hergebruik zonder toestemming van de rechthebbende is nou eenmaal een schending van het auteursrecht, ook al doet de halve wereld het ook. Natuur12 (talk) 15:51, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

 Not done. Widespread publication does not mean that a photograph is free to use for anyone. Only the copyright holder, i.e. the photographer, can grant licences for the use of their work. De728631 (talk) 15:21, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Then, is possible to send the files to my email address (or at least the links loicated at external sources) for further research? --Amitie 10g (talk) 17:01, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose At the OTRS ticket, I see a series of e-mails from the uploader at a g-mail address all of which say the following with different file names:
"Por el presente se otorga permiso para la publicación del archivo ALMA MATER (MARCHA).ogg"
That is nothing like an irrevocable free license. There is no evidence that the uploader has anything to do with the source or the authors of the files and, therefore, no evidence that he has the right to allow publication of the files. .     Jim . . . .

I'm requesting undeletion requesting for the pdf file File:61-Point Reqruitment System which was shared publicly & for acknowledging the fact or information given in it. This file was provided by bangladeshi government institute named 'boesl'. File contains a notice & detailed info as is & permitted to share with all who are interested in it.

Published under CC Zero through OTRS Ticket:2016042410008375. --Ruthven (msg) 16:09, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support but whoa... @Ruthven: I think I am prevented from doing so myself by the confidentiality agreement, but could you please reiterate #2 of your first email to the client here? I think it needs wider input. Storkk (talk) 10:07, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
@Storkk: I did it to avoid him one more step, but if you think it isn't proper, this will be the first and last time! :) Basically I asked the client who was the author of the image (I haven't access to deleted files here, so I couldn't check it myself) and made him notice that he had already changed the license on Flickr, from copyrighted (I suppose, otherwise the file wouldn't have been deleted) to PD. --Ruthven (msg) 10:36, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
I think strongly that you should have accepted the license that the client intended. Note that much ink has been spilled regarding PDM (vs CC-0) on Flickr, the result being that we don't consider it a valid license. But I think your point 2 is factually incorrect as well in any case. Discussing this would be easier if you specifically allow me to quote you or if you quoted yourself. Storkk (talk) 10:40, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Well, maybe I made a mistake on the license because I am not aware of the "ink spilled regarding PDM (vs CC-0) on Flickr". I noted in my answer that the image was already published under a PD license on flickr and that he wanted to publish it on Commons under a "more restrictive one, which is not allowed". The last part of the sentence being the mistake. However, in answer #5, the client doesn't care about the choice of the license (he put it in PD on flickr!). If you consider that the original license is ok for the file, it's fine with me as well. --Ruthven (msg) 11:42, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
That's indeed what alarmed me: I took issue with your statement to the client that he was not permitted to send us CC-BY-SA-3.0 for his work. Storkk (talk) 12:37, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
In any case there is no need of a OTRS ticket in this case: the file is already published by the author in PD. I should have closed in that way, avoiding headaches to both of us. --Ruthven (msg) 15:09, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Ticket is still much preferable, because Flickr still says PDM, and not CC-Zero. The difference is that PDM is not a license: it is simply a statement that there are "no known restrictions". For extensive discussion regarding this, please see Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2015/12#Deleting_thousands_of_Flickr_images_over_faulty_PD_marking, Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2016/04#Would_it_be_possible_to_import_PD_image_from_Commons_under_CC0_license_from_Flickr.3F, Commons:Village_pump/Copyright/Archive/2016/03#Is_CCO_1.0_the_same_as_CC_pdm.3F Storkk (talk) 15:23, 27 April 2016 (UTC) and i forgot the RFC: Commons:Requests_for_comment/Flickr_and_PD_images Storkk (talk) 17:03, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Capa do CD Governe!.png

Guys, I know about copyrights and I know you must be careful, but I own the image copyrights, I'm the creator of the art. I even placed a link to the website where we published the art for the first time to be a source for the image used.

I don't know what else I can do to show that I CAN use the image however I want. Please help me out here. I'm trying to help making a nice page for the álbum of the rapper and it would make a big difference if we use the album cover in the page.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks a lot.

File:Choo Mi-ae 2015 panel.jpg‎

The file was published under CC-BY-3.0 on YouTube by the author. Reverse image search does not show the image reproduced anywhere else other than that video. The nominator linked to a different website of the author organization which had another license tag at the bottom: the image has not, as far as I can tell, been published on that website. The deleting admin did not give any reason beyond the nominator's statement. Nizolan (talk) 15:24, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

It is not CC-BY-SA. See the their's homepage. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 16:09, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
If an uninvolved editor would like to review the website in question, it is here (per Idh0854's original link on the nomination). As I said, there is an unannotated license tag at the bottom of the page, and no indication that it applies to this file, which was published on another website under a different license. I assume a photo published under a correct license on Flickr would similarly not be deleted just because the author has a different license for other files somewhere else.

Speedy deleted out of process—the file is extracted from a video published by the author under a CC-BY-3.0 license. A contradictory blanket license is apparently provided on another website, though not for this specific video—either way, not a "clear" copyright violation, so should at least be discussed at deletions rather than speedy deleted. Deleting admin did not provide any additional reasoning. Nizolan (talk) 15:36, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Gerő Ernő Magyar Rádió 1955 FP 56202.jpg

This image depicts Gerő Ernő, a Hungarian Communist politician prominent around the middle of the 20th century. The source of the image is Fortepan, an open repository of historical photographs. Fortepan receives "donations" of photographs from copyright holders (photographers, collections, media publications). "Donation" in this sense means placing the image under CC-BY-SA-3.0 and providing Fortepan with a copy for posting, so Fortepan does not become the copyright holder, nor does it claim to be. Subsequent users are asked to satisfy the "BY" part of the license by giving credit in the following format: "FOTO:FORTEPAN / name of donor". Donors warrant and represent that they are the copyright holders, and they agree to place the image under CC-BY-SA-3.0.

In this instance, the donor is Rádió és Televízió Újság, a weekly magazine about radio and TV programs. The name of the staff photographer taking the picture is not known, but that is beside the point: §30, section (7) of the Hungarian Copyright Act makes the magazine (as employer) the copyright holder, and they as licensors want to be credited as "Rádió és Televízió Újság".

The deleting admin gave three different reasons for the deletion:

  1. The deletion summary states "Missing permission".
  2. When asked to undelete the image, he refused by saying it was "very unlikely that Fortepan is the copyright holder of all those pictures".
  3. When asked about the actual reason for deletion he said "probably because the author was stated to be Rádió és Televízió Újság, while the real author is the person who takes the picture, not some organization".

To refute each claim:

  1. The image is licensed under CC-BY-SA-3.0; it is unclear what additional permission is necessary or why.
  2. Nobody claims that Fortepan is the copyright holder; Fortepan is simply a repository of images licensed under CC-BY-SA-3.0 by the actual copyright holders.
  3. The actual staff photographer taking the picture is unknown; and Rádió és Televízió Újság, the copyright holder is named as the author. This is standard practice on Commons, for example, File:Reiner gamma.jpg is stated to be authored by NASA, File:Matilda II Tarakan (089970).jpg is stated to be authored by the "Australian military" and File:Tornadic classic supercell radar.gif is attributed to "Storm Prediction Center".

In summary, this is a free image and I see no reason why it should not be kept on Commons. Please undelete it.

--Malatinszky (talk) 15:46, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I find the above persuasive. Do we know whether Fortepan is reasonably rigorous in making sure actual copyright holders are the donors? Any thoughts, Jcb? In some jurisdictions (e.g. UK), even if the employer owns the copyright, it expires 70 years after the actual creator's death, so the actual creator is always desirable to know, but I suppose it shouldn't be required in order to undelete this photograph since it doesn't need to be PD. Storkk (talk) 16:56, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
How can the Radio and Television Magazine claim that one of their employees is the photographer while at the same time the photographer is unknown? The three examples you mention are photos that are public domain by law and nobody has claimed that this photo is public domain. Thuresson (talk) 16:58, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
I can only theorize: perhaps it was their policy to only use photographers who were their employees, or perhaps it was their policy to always require a transfer of copyright ownership for pictures they print (neither is unrealistic in the context of the Stalinist system in place at the time). In any case, they claim to be the copyright owners, that claim is not unreasonable, and we routinely accept reasonable claims of copyright ownership. Malatinszky (talk) 17:23, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
A lot of archives assume themselves to be the copyright holder of any material they have a physical print from. That's why we need a reasonable explanation about how they became the copyright holder. Jcb (talk) 18:14, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
This photo was made in studio of Hungarian Radio. There is no reason to suppose that the picture was made by anyone else, only one of employees of the magazine (publisher of the magazine was Hungarian Radio, before 1959 its name was Radio Magazine). --Regasterios (talk) 19:49, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
✓ Done assuming the Hungarian Radio to be the copyright holder seems reasonable.

File:Mandy pic.jpg

This picture is Mandy Takhar's original one and available for free on the internet. Moreover this has been approved by Mandy Takhar herself.
— Preceding unsigned comment added by Sarvjitkhera (talk • contribs)
@Sarvjitkhera: Hello, please ask Mandy Takhar to forward their permission to the OTRS. Also, since it is a photo of theirself, is it a selfie or not? If it is not, then the photographer (not Mandy) is the copyright holder, and they must send an email to the OTRS instead of Mandy. If it is a selfie, Mandy must send an email to the OTRS. Also, does Mandy agrees to release their image under a free license (example, CC-BY-SA-4.0)? Lastly, is Mandy Takhar a notable person (has media coverage)? If not, it is out of our project's scope, and even there is a permission, it will remain deleted. Thanks, Poké95 08:36, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

 Not done: An image being available on the Internet does not make it free for re-use by anyone. Please ask the copyright holder to contact Wikimedia. Note that Mandy is not the copyright holder unless copyright was transferred from the photographer or it was a work for hire. The image would appear to be in scope - see en:Mandy Takhar.

File talk:CC-BY icon.svg

File talk:CC-BY icon.svg was deleted out of process, and the reasons for this deletion are now ancient history. Please restore and blank the talk page. –Be..anyone 💩 06:51, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Restore and blank? I see little point in that. While it probably should not have been a {{Speedy}}, the remarks were wrong (they confused trademark and copyright) and it was an inappropriate use of a file talk page. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:24, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Are you folks intending to follow your own policies at some point in time? The speedy deletion violated the speedy deletion policy, and after my observation was archived it has to be fixed here. –Be..anyone 💩 13:34, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
The only difference would be having that history available to read for those so inclined. Is there a good enough reason for that? It can sometimes help to see that an action was done before, to prevent the same action from being done again, so sometimes discussion on a file can be helpful to keep even if an original comment was mistaken. As for undeletion... it doesn't *have* to happen, if admins look at the content and think it should still remain deleted, even if for reasons other than the original. I'm not sure why discussing legal issues of a file would be inappropriate use of a file talk page though... we try to keep links to kept DRs on that page, for example, for people looking there. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:57, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
Perhaps my choice of "inappropriate" was inappropriate. What I meant was that making comments about a file's licensing on its talk page is more or less useless, since file talk pages are very rarely looked at by anyone. If there is a problem with licensing, the correct step is a {{Delete}} so that it can be discussed in the full view of the community.
I still don't understand "Please restore and blank the talk page." Why restore it in order to blank it? .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 20:02, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
The uploader often sees it, which can be a lower-key discussion before it goes to the full community. But yes, typically no action would be taken if the discussion is simply left there. I'm not sure why you'd blank it either -- archiving would seem more appropriate if that was warranted, but I can't see the discussion either, and if it got out of hand. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:15, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that's one of two reasons, the page with questionable comments was also edited by me. And the other reason is that if admins don't follow policies we can simply trash those policy pages and run this shop based on the five pillars incl. IAR for non-admin edits. –Be..anyone 💩 16:30, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
I don't understand "Yes, that's one of two reasons, the page with questionable comments was also edited by me." The page had only one edit and that was a comment by Elvey. The comment is wrong, because it does not distinguish between Creative Commons copyright and its rules for the use of its trademark, but it is not heated, controversial, or in any way a problem. I still don't understand why Be..anyone wants to restore and blank a non-controversial incorrect comment made by another user 18 months ago. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 00:45, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
Maybe I confused it with lots of closely related CC-icon talk pages, where I added {{edit request}}s or other comments about invalid SVGs and Rillke's law. November 2014 is really ancient, I had it in a subpage with pending undeletion requests waiting for the admin to archive the corresponding thread on their talk pages. –Be..anyone 💩 05:25, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
Be..anyone, are you withdrawing this request? If so, it can be closed. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 19:18, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
No evidence so far that any involved admin accepts the idea that IAR SHOULD be limited to "editing without special rights" (it also affects staff etc., the other example is linked on my user page.) –Be..anyone 💩 19:39, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
@Be..anyone, Jameslwoodward: I'm not really sure how this can be closed at the moment. Be..anyone - would you consider me to be an uninvolved admin? Would everyone be happy if I restored, responded to the incorrect comment stating "That's a COM:NCR, not a copyright issue", and left it at that (no blanking or archiving). Not really sure it will accomplish anything other than close this section, but if it's a process issue that Be..anyone feels strongly about, and it's not a problematic restoration, and there are no clear objections, then why not? Storkk (talk) 10:28, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

That's fine with me, thank you for taking the initiative here -- I think the restoration is pointless, which is why I objected to it above, but if it will get this UnDR closed, fine. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:13, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Alexandra Elbakyan - 2010.jpg

I see a log entry "01:00, 9 April 2016 User:Jcb (talk | contribs) deleted page File:Alexandra Elbakyan - 2010.jpg (Copyright violation: Derived from http://cursdeguvernare.ro/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/alexandra-elbakyan.png) " Well, the /wp-content/uploads/2016/03/ looks suspiciously like it is a mirror of Wikipedia, so what I am reading is that this picture got deleted because it was copied to some fork, and then an admin here confused derivative work with the original. I fed this image to the Google Image search and it didn't give me any hits.

It was only uploaded in April. Was it on en-wiki under another name or something? I think another blog system uses "wp-content" and has nothing to do with Wikipedia (wordpress, probably). The uploader is very experienced so it would be rather surprising if it was simply lifted from a copyrighted source though. Per the Google cache, the source was at Flickr, which is licensed OK, and it certainly was on Flickr before the "derived from" upload mentioned, so the deletion reason is bogus. That looks like an organization's Flickr page, but it does not look like photos actually taken then -- seems like it was photos of speakers at an upcoming conference, so they were probably collected from various sources. It's possible they got permission to license them that way, but humanity+ would not be the author nor (in almost all likelihood) the copyright owner either, so it's unclear what the licensing permission was. Definitely deserving of a regular DR but without further info, I may lean towards deletion in the end. Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:59, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Brokesova.jpg

After a week-long verification process, I've come to a conclusion that File:Brokesova.jpg may be restored and hosted on Wikimedia Commons.

OTRS members may see ticket:2016042410005252 (in Czech) for details concerning the file. In a nutshell: The photograph had been uploaded by its author, User:Vojtechkovacs, who had also provided an e-mail from the subject of the photograph giving her consent for the publication. However, this e-mail was wrongly used as a permission in terms of licensing, resulting in the "permission" being evaluated as insufficient and the file deleted.

However, after some communication with both the uploader and the subject, it became clear that the uploader of the file is also the author of the photograph itself. It wasn't clearly stated on the original description page because of a misunderstanding between author's and subject's rights which may be quite common when it comes to portraits.

The file may be undeleted with these licence templates and information:

=={{int:filedesc}}==
{{Information
|description={{en|1=Jaroslava Brokešová}}
|date=not available
|source={{own}}
|author=[[User:Vojtechkovacs|Vojtěch Kovács]]

}}

=={{int:license-header}}==
{{self|cc-by-sa-4.0}}

@Ellin Beltz: Hello, I'm just pinging you as a deleting admin in case you have something to add regarding the original file description or any other circumstances I might not been aware of.

@Jedudedek: Ahoj, jen ti touto cestou dávám vědět, že na základě komunikace v OTRS navrhuji obnovení této fotky, kterou jsi navrhl ke smazání. Subjekt snímku potvrdil, že uživatel, který ho nahrál, je zároveň původním autorem. Pokud se tvá nominace opírala o nějaké další poznatky, o kterých nevím a zdají se relevantní, dej mi prosím vědět.

@Storkk: Hi, I have checked the subject's e-mail address and it matches the address mentioned on her official website. And I have a written confirmation sent from this address that User:Vojtechkovacs is the actual author of the image. Libimseti.cz is a Czech dating-related social network where people don't take copyright very seriously so if she got this image from her colleague, she might have posted the image without mentioning the author. I've sent you a few more points via e-mail because of confidentality and want to confirm that to my mind and regarding to the information we have here and in OTRS ticket, the picture is OK to be restored. --Michal Bělka (talk) 12:58, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Owen photograph Wiki 2016.jpg

@Ankry Thank you for directing me to this page and for explaining why you deleted the photograph from the Wikipedia article on Sue Owen in Russian. (She is my wife, and I created the article in response to a request from her translator in Moscow, who has published her poems there. The Authority control line establishes her right to be included in Wikipedia.) I own the copyright to the photograph because I took it on my camera in September 2014. I made that fact clear on the upload wizard in Wikimedia. I believed that statement to be sufficient to establish my right to use the photograph in Wikipedia. Now you say that the image is a copy of a photograph on the Wisconsin High School website. In fact, I sent the same photograph to the WHS webmaster last year in response to a request for a recent photograph, but the photograph that I uploaded to Wikimedia was the original, not the one that I had sent to WHS. I do not understand why the use of the photograph by WHS on the web in 2015 prevents my using my own photograph on Wikimedia in April 2016. WHS has no claim to the copyright. May I have your permission to put the photograph back in the article? Thank you. Dolzhnikov (talk) 14:19, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi Dolzhnikov, thank you for your message here. As you will be aware, we take copyright issues seriously on Wikimedia Commons, and in view of the fact that the image you uploaded was extremely small we will I'm afraid have to ask you to go through the procedure set out at OTRS. In view of the comments you make above, there should be no difficulty in your establishing ownership of the copyright (for example by providing access to a higher resolution version than the one on WHS). Once ownership has been established, somebody will undelete the image and add a tag to prevent it from being challenged on the same basis in the future. Whatever you do, please don't re-upload any image that has been deleted, as that is not permitted and may result in your right to edit being blocked. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 15:25, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

[Previous message to Dolzhnikov] Hi Dolzhnikov, thank you for your message here.

Dear MichaelMaggs: Concerning your advice, above, here below is what I plan to submit soon to Wikimedia, using the e-mail template in Wikimedia Commons, as specified in OTRS, but first I would like to know if an uncropped image is what you need to show my ownership and whether I can still use the cropped image for the article on Sue Owen. Please let me know if this is the correct way to establish my ownership of the image, so that the cropped image can be used. [E-mail to Wikimedia, with two attached photographs] I hereby affirm that I, Thomas C. Owen, am the creator and/or sole owner of the exclusive copyright of the media work as shown here in the original uncropped image (no. 1, enclosed) of Sue Owen. This photograph, taken on Sep. 22, 2014, was made from my snapshot film negative, which I own. This original larger image (no. 1) was cropped smaller (no. 2, enclosed) for both WHS (Wisconsin High School alumni website) in 2015 and Wikimedia in 2016. The cropped version (no. 2) is what I prefer for the Wikipedia article. I agree to publish the above-mentioned content (cropped image, no. 2) under the following free license: Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International. I acknowledge that by doing so I grant anyone the right to use the work, even in a commercial product or otherwise, and to modify it according to their needs, provided that they abide by the terms of the license and any other applicable laws. I am aware that this agreement is not limited to Wikipedia or related sites. I am aware that the copyright holder always retains ownership of the copyright as well as the right to be attributed in accordance with the license chosen. Modifications others make to the work will not be claimed to have been made by the copyright holder. I acknowledge that I cannot withdraw this agreement, and that the content may or may not be kept permanently on a Wikimedia project. Thomas C. Owen Copyright holder May 5, 2016 Dolzhnikov (talk) 23:37, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

I think would very probably do it, yes. And it's fine for you to license the cropped image only, if that's what you prefer. The other image will be kept as confidential evidence, and won't be used or released publicly. If you'd like me to handle the OTRS ticket when it arrives, could you please add the wording 'for MichaelMaggs' in the subject of your email so that I can identify it when it arrives in the OTRS inbox? If you want to contact me directly, you can do so on my talk page, here: User talk:MichaelMaggs. All the best. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 07:06, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

The DR mentioned it was in use in several projects. As such, it is automatically in scope. The question was whether the "own work" claim was valid. I think it was deleted on suspicion but without actually mentioning a pre-existing internet page where it existed. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:10, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done: 1) Another user tagged the file as "missing permission" because the uploader wrote "No" in the permission field. The "No" was written in the upload form of 2008, which asked if the file has been published previously, it does not mean that there is no permission for this file. Permission has been given by the uploader and creator at the time of upload. I assume this is correct, even if the previous upload under fair use on en.wp (see en:User_talk:Alpepper) gives reason for doubt. 2) The file was in use, see delinker log. --Martin H.

So, why this file was deleted? Bloody-libu (talk) 07:37, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
@Bloody-libu: URAA has always been a contentious issue, with long-standing contributors, administrators and copyright experts arguing on all sides in good faith and having good points, and our URAA treatment evolves over time. COM:URAA appears to be the current best-practices (you link to an RFC closed over 2 years ago). In it, the language you quote is partly preserved but expanded upon: A mere allegation that the URAA applies to a file cannot be the sole reason for deletion. If the end result of copyright evaluation is that there is significant doubt about the freedom of a file under US or local law, the file must be deleted in line with the precautionary principle. Best regards, Storkk (talk) 07:45, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thank you for the detailed explanation Storkk. Bloody-libu (talk) 08:05, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
This file is in the could be/could be not okay range but we will never find out if it is in fact a copyright violation and we tend to keep such files. Since this file is one of the many abuselively speedy deleted by Fastily in the middle of the URAA-war I believe we should at least restore it so it can face a regular DR. See for older discussions regarding this file here and here. Seems that this is the only file in an entire set that didn't survived the war. Natuur12 (talk) 08:49, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm not going to argue this much, but I think the relevant discussion for this file is Commons:Undeletion_requests/Archive/2012-02#Works_of_Maurice_Ravel, where it was decided that pre-1923 works by Ravel are OK. This is a work from 1928, so I don't see why there wouldn't be "significant doubt about the freedom of the file under US ... law", which is how I believe we should decide URAA cases (which was undecided at the point of the discussion I just linked to). I won't restore it myself, but won't contest its restoration by others. I think while we should discount Fastily's deletion, we should also consider discounting Yann prior restoration under our current URAA stance. Storkk (talk) 09:16, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Than how do we know that this work wasn't published in the US within 30 days after it's publication in France for example? Perhaps there is a bilateral treaty that is relevant? Natuur12 (talk) 09:46, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
I don't, but I probably have a different threshold for "significant doubt". Storkk (talk) 10:48, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Without further information, we can only assume that the work was effectively published in France when it premiered on 22 November 1928 and published in the US on 14 November 1929 when it premiered in New York. Green Giant (talk) 22:43, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Gneral tarayre.jpg

I don't see a reason for deletion, although it was closed as 'delete'. If the file name is wrong, then the file should be renamed, not deleted. Also note that the file name in the URL isn't the same as the file name on the header line. File:Gneral tarayre.jpg (which should really be renamed) was not deleted but still contains a template saying that the file has been nomiated for deletion. --Stefan2 (talk) 22:13, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

It looks like the uploader wanted to rename the file, but ended up nominating it for deletion instead, and then went and renamed the file link on the DR to make it look like it was already deleted when in fact it was never uploaded under that name. I'd guess Fastily thought it was deleted via another process and just closed the DR, when instead it never changed from its original name. I'd either just remove the deletion tag or rename it now -- nothing to undelete, and the licensing looks fine. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:41, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

@Threecharlie: The ticket a forwarded confirmation from the photographer that he has changed the Flickr license on his photos. The photos above all appear to be derivatives of architectural works.

File:Chacas-escudo.svg

Ticket#2015121410027618 was sent two days after the deletion and seems to be valid. If the file is actually Own work, then, the deletion rationale was not valid. --Amitie 10g (talk) 22:48, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

How can you determine if the file is a clone of [2] and not the otherwise? Get a preview of the SVG at the resolution that matches the PNG. If checksum matches, then, the Government of Peru used the file at Commons. Also, the SVG contains several free elements already in Commons.
How can you determine if a CoA is based on a graphic rather than a Blazon? The both Coa that you mentioned are totally different, but appears to be heraldicaly equivalent. So, you cant (and shouldn't) claim that if a CoA graphic is a DW of another one, because both are based in the same blazon. Also, the SVG contains several elements already available at Commons, so, is very hard that the uploader copied the CoA from the website of the Government of Peru. --Amitie 10g (talk) 15:50, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I cannot determine any of those things, but I can clearly determine that the ticket contains no mention that they created it from the blazon. Storkk (talk) 16:26, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
You're right, and the description contains just Own work and no details about heraldry. But, some considerations should be taken:
  1. You shouldn't consider a specific version of a CoA as based on another specific version (specially if them are very different graphicaly but heraldicaly equivalent).
  2. And about the both equivalent graphics, the SVG seems to be sightly lighter then the one found in the website of the Government of Peru. But, by seeing the graphic closer and doing a deeper research, the crown is used in several other files at Commons like this, and several files depicted in this article. Therefore, this SVG looks like a job of a Wikimedia Heraldic artists rather than a more elaborate raster graphic from someone else like this non-free CoA.
So, what do you think? --Amitie 10g (talk) 16:57, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I agree that the gob.pe image might have been taken from here, which is why I said that in my initial reply. I've given my opinion, which is that we need a more explicit statement regarding what the image is based on, but other admins are free to differ (as always). Note that unlike some other requests, I have not {{oppose}}d this undeletion request, I have simply given comments and declined to carry it out myself. Storkk (talk) 17:02, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I strongly think that there is copyfraud from the Government of Peru and not the otherwise. The uploader still claiming that he is the author of the SVG, and I just trust him. --Amitie 10g (talk) 17:05, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
    • I think that is quite likely gob.pe took it from here. In any case, I believe we need a statement regarding what the drawing was based on. If it was derivative of the blazon, OK.. if it was derivative of a very old COA, OK... if it was derivative of a non-PD COA, then we have a problem. I think that without any statement to the contrary, the last is the most likely. This will probably be my last comment on this section: I've said everything I can say about it. Storkk (talk) 17:14, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I think you forget to ask yourself have the CoA elements taken from one or more files already in Commons? (the crown for example). I'm not criticizing your doubt, but there is little proof of a DW of anything than graphics already found at Commons. --Amitie 10g (talk) 17:34, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure I agree. Take for example, this collage. If all the small images that made it up were PD, it would still be a derivative of the photo of Obama. In this case, if all the components were CC (and properly credited (!)), we still need to know on what original the image was based. Storkk (talk) 17:39, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
  • This was temporarily undeleted by Thibaut120094 to allow for investigation. Storkk (talk) 10:25, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info: I sended a message to the uploader, asking what elements is based (or "inspired") the CoA (namely, if the uploaded based in the Blazon, or a specific graphic) (at least, the crown already exists in Commons and is used in several CoAs). --Amitie 10g (talk) 05:53, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
  • It doesn't matter how old the design is, or that the SVG is "based on" a general design (an idea); it is not derivative of the blazon. See Commons:Coats of arms. Each different drawing of the seal is its own copyright. To be derivative, you are looking to see if the exact same lines etc. were copied from another version -- always possible. (For a photograph, you are looking to see if it is the exact same angle, framing etc. as the original photo -- so yes that collage is derivative.) The image Gunnex found has a server date in 2015, and the SVG was uploaded in 2016 by the looks of it (unless there are old deleted revisions). Those versions are basically identical -- so identical in fact that the .png version on the Peru site was obviously generated from a vector version. The uploaded SVG is exactly that same vector version -- it's too close to have been traced or otherwise created from the .png; it had to be the other way around -- the .png is definitely generated from a vector. Given the dates though, that is harder to explain unless there is a vector version somewhere else out there (or the uploader made it available somewhere else first). The other bitmap version listed above looks to be an utterly different drawing and so there is no copied expression; that would seem to be irrelevant. I do see the same uploader also uploaded File:Bandera_Chacas.svg much earlier which was deleted about the same time -- if the flag has the same graphic, that would explain how the vector came to be (the Peru site would have just extracted the seal from the flag), and would seem to make sense. Was the deletion of that flag SVG also incorrect, or was there better reasoning for that? If the flag SVG seems fine, and using components from other SVG files available here strongly suggests it was at least somewhat an original work done directly by a Commons contributor, then I'd probably support undeletion. The Google cache of the flag seems to show a different author than the uploader though, but it sure feels like it was probably licensed OK at some point, at worst on a local wikipedia before transfer. Carl Lindberg (talk) 06:29, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the in-depth analysis and corrections, Carl. File:Bandera_Chacas.svg appears to be essentially this file on a blue field. I guess all that remains would be to credit the creators of the original elements. The crown appears to be this one, which is PD-self by HansenBCN... are all other elements PD? Storkk (talk) 16:13, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
Therefore, if File:Bandera Chacas.svg contains the same CoA, shoudl not be temporary undeleted too? The uploader insists that the CoA is his own work and I believe it, but, as I mentioned above, I sended a message to the uploader for more info. --Amitie 10g (talk) 05:22, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Probably. Was it a valid deletion? Or did someone remove a license tag which resulted it being deleted for no permission a year and a half after upload? Carl Lindberg (talk) 13:35, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
It was deleted after being tagged with {{no permission since}} for 8 days. I would oppose temporary undeletion, since its restoration is not necessary to the investigation of its copyright status, however it should be undeleted if this file remains undeleted, as the issues are identical. We have seen that the uploader has taken credit for at least one element that they did not create personally, and while that may be OK because it was licensed PD-self, it does not fill me with confidence that the other elements were all created by the uploader (e.g. the shield). And given that many of our heraldic elements appear to be licensed CC-BY-SA/GFDL rather than PD, I don't think we can just assume they all were PD. Storkk (talk) 14:43, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Technically, if something is PD, credit is not required (though still a good idea). The crown has been used on a *lot* of CoAs here, as a Google images search shows. I think the other file had a different author than uploader -- if that is the case, they are the author of this file too from the sounds of it. Was there a good reason for the no-permission tag? Was there a license on the file? Carl Lindberg (talk) 14:57, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Same author. It was tagged by Gunnex as needing permission on 2016-01-23. I agree that taking the crown is probably OK license-wise, if perhaps poor form... I am trying to say that taking the crown while claiming own work throws much doubt on whether (eg) the shield is own work. Storkk (talk) 15:12, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Note, Ondando appears to have been renamed to Lamder. Storkk (talk) 15:16, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Ah, OK -- that was likely done after seeing it was the same as the CoA here, without realizing that the upload date of the flag invalidated the no-permission tag on both. I think Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion of both at this point. That crown looks like it has been used on hundreds other files, many of them CoAs of Spain or Spanish-speaking countries (such as File:Escudo de Cerratón de Juarros (Burgos).svg or Category:Coats of arms by the Taller de Heráldica y Vexilología in the Spanish Wikipedia among many many others). Looks like using that crown was just standard practice among that community. If you are using it, that means you are at least knowledgable enough to composite elements in a vector image application, and would likely be good enough to create some new drawings as well, and it also indicates that Commons was almost certainly the initial upload of the work. So... no real reason to doubt the license, from what I see. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:50, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
To me the technical quality of the shield appears different enough to the drawings on the shield that I remain unconvinced, and won't restore it myself. I do not oppose restoration if another admin sees it differently and finds the authorship claim credible. If closed as {{done}}, File:Bandera Chacas.svg should also be undeleted. Storkk (talk) 16:02, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Entirely possible that that was also a stock component, though I can't find examples elsewhere. But the uploader has done a number of SVG seals, and there is a community on es-wiki it looks like which collaborates with these. Either way, the initial deleting reason was incorrect (though at first it looked reasonable), and therefore there is no reason not to assume good faith, to me. So, I'd support undeleting both. Improving source documentation is always welcome but I don't see anything which would warrant deletion. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:56, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Padma Vibhushan India Ie Klasse.jpg

The Indian Copyright Act states that copyrights expire on all government works after 60 years. Our COM:COIN#India is based on same lines. I would assume that same applies to this medal issued by the government. The medal was first given in 1954 and the design was then altered in 1955. (See reference on en:Padma Vibhushan.) Counting by 1955, we have surpassed the 60 year limit. Pinging involved editors @Jolly Janner, Jcb:. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 11:02, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There is no proof that this is a government work. Medals and coins are often, perhaps even usually, designed by outside contractors and do not qualify as government work for copyright purposes. That is certainly true in the US and the UK, so I think in order to keep this we need to show that the designer was, in fact, a government employee.

File:RocketChat Logo 1024x1024.png

The deletion of this image is a mistake:

  • It is used on a non-wikimedian wiki (wiki.nuitdebout.fr)
  • Commons have a lot of trivial logos, this subject is clearly not out of scope
  • and of course, SVG is better but not an obligation.

This case doesn't help me to convince people to upload files on Commons. Pyb (talk) 09:46, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

    • You're kidding? This deletion request is just a non-sense. Jcb, EugeneZelenko and you have made an error. Errors could happen, it's not a problem for me. But the denial of the mistake is a problem. If you don't know very well what is on Commons, you should take a look in Category:Logos. Should I write an essay about the educational purpose of logos? Pyb (talk) 10:17, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

        • Jcb clearly made no mistake. As for the deletion request, it was open for more than two weeks. Furthermore, you removed a deletion tag before the DR was closed as if it would end the discussion. If you had wished to contest deletion of a file that appeared trivial, you should have participated in the deletion request.

File:Fogbridge - 2015-02-18 - Andy Mabbett - 47.JPG

This file was deleted by User:Jcb with the rationale of "delete delagation request of SPAM policy imediate image unsuitable inappropriate misplaced". Since this cannot be parsed in English, I asked him to explain what it means, but he either cannot or will not. He subsequently said that I "declared somebody else to be the photographer at the file description page". His claim is utterly bogus. Nonetheless, he has subsequently declined my request, on his talk page, to reinstate the file. I could do without this unnecessary aggravation. Andy Mabbett (talk) 19:12, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

As already said by Jcb on his talk page, the deletion reason is not necessarily the deletion rationale. This was clearly a misdelete by Jcb considering the invalid deletion request was made by a locked account, however, I see no reason to undelete this image. It is low quality, shows two people taking a selfie, fails to display the bridge and was unused after a year for likely those exact reasons. Another admin can undelete this, however, I only see it ending up at COM:DR and deleted because it is hardly educationally useful. ~riley (talk) 19:21, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
@~riley: Your argument is not the deletion rationale used previously; if you wish to make that argument, the file should be undeleted, and you can then nominate it using the normal process. I and others may then present the valid arguments why you are wrong, such as this being one of a series of images documenting a public art event (one by an artist of international renown; in which a bridge was deliberately hidden by fog - the clue is in the name of the artwork: "Fogbridge") and peoples' reactions to it. Perhaps you can also point to the Commons policy whereby only images that are "used" are to be hosted here? Andy Mabbett (talk) 19:34, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Relevant policy; COM:NOTUSED. As said, another admin can undelete but this is a low quality, shows two people taking a selfie (possibly personality rights issue), fails to display the bridge and there are 85 better files that can be used in Category:Fogbridge - 2015-02-18. You can spice your undeletion request all you want but it still comes down to being a file with questionable validity. You've come here saying Jcb has declined your request and shown aggravation, however, he only redirected you to the proper place for undeletions. You also say he refused to explain what the deletion reason meant, when he provided a reason for his deletion rationale on his talk page. Perhaps it was not valid, but it was still an explanation. In either case, I'd like to hear more from Jcb. ~riley (talk) 19:53, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
No, COM:NOTUSED doesn't say that at all. I actually said "I asked [Jcb] to explain what [his deletion rationale of "delete delagation request of SPAM policy imediate image unsuitable inappropriate misplaced"] means, but he either cannot or will not." If you think that's wrong, please point out where he did so. I also asked him to undelete the file; he did not. Again: if you wish to make an argument for deletion, restore the file and use the usual process. Andy Mabbett (talk) 20:24, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
@Andy Mabbett, not sure if you have read User_talk:Jcb#Special:DeletedContributions.2FMatffy. For me the case is closed, I will leave it to others. Jcb (talk) 20:47, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
I never claimed "only images that are "used" are to be hosted here", like you stated. So no, COM:NOTUSED does not say that. It does speak in accordance with my points on that it can fall outside of scope because it is not used and not educationally useful. COM:UNDR clearly states "Deletions which are correct based on the current deletion, project scope and licensing policies will not be undone" You asked for an explanation for his deletion rationale, he explained it. You asked for it to be undeleted, he deferred you to the relevant requests page. And then on top of that you claim "unnecessary aggravation."

Speedy deletion of File:Love Story Reunion (mute).webm on inappropriate ground

The file did not meet the criteria for speedy deletion since https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-I1b1CVkP4 isn't copied from http://www.onenewspage.com/n/US/759i5e2d3/Ali-MacGraw-and-Ryan-Neal-return-to.htm. The uploader of the Youtube file licenced under CC BY 3.0 just linked to that website in the description but he obiously didn't use any material of the video there published in his own work.

A proper survey would have revealed that the videos compared do not coincide - neither of footage nor of other relevant content. Aside from the fact that they cover the same topic the difference between both files could hardly be more extreme.

Imho, according to our deletion policy the file has to be restored. In case of an unclear copyvio a regular deletion request has to be made. --Jotzet (talk) 00:42, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Nadine Social Robot .png

Hi,

I have not received any notification regarding my image Nadine Social Robot .png was being put up for deletion, till I have logged in today to check. The reason that was given was, unlikely to be own work as the image has a small resolution and it is missing EXIF.

What will I need to do to get the image back up? The image was taken by a previous colleague of mine and I have the permission of the Professor whom over sees the project to use the image.

Regarding the missing EXIF it is most likely due to the image being photoshopped at a certain point in time.

Thank you.

Regards, Shawn

File:Electric Chair by Robert Priseman.jpg

This painting is an original work based directly on the photograph 'Old Sparky' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_chair#/media/File:Singchair.jpg) which is a 'public domain' image. The painting has approached the old image by adding colour and widened out the perspective view to create a new square format work based upon the original but not as a copy of it. The choice of this specific electric chair was also important to the thinking of the creation of this work as it seeks to reference historic imagery as well and being the same electric chair Andy Warhol used as the foundation to create his iconic 'elecric chair' work. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 109.145.49.224 (talk) 04:34, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Stadsgraven - sculpture and spire.jpg

I am a little puzzled about the deletion of this file or rather the reasonign behind it, cf. the discussion here. To me User:Storkk seems to refuse to recognize the relevance of the Danish Intellectual Property Rights Act (Ophavsretsloven) § 24, section 2 (wheather or not this can correctly be referred to as freedom of panorama), and therefore fails to even consider wheather the sculpture is/was the "principal motif" of the photograph as I believe is what matters. A review from a third party would therefore be appreciated.Ramblersen (talk) 13:21, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Language such as "refuse to recognize" and "fail to consider" can be percieved as a little combative. Please assume I am acting in good faith. Despite a spire being visible in the background of the photo, the main subject of the photograph is clearly the sculpture. As such, the photo is likely fine for non-commercial reproductions, but not for commercial. Storkk (talk) 14:19, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Google's cache suggests that this is a picture of a sculpture by Einar Utzon-Frank (1888-1955), [3]. Is this correct?
In the deletion request, User:Ramblersen discusses whether the sculpture is the main part of the photograph. I think that the sculpture is too prominently presented in the image I found in Google's cache, so it's probably the main subject of the photograph. --Stefan2 (talk) 16:50, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
@Stefan2: it is this photo. Storkk (talk) 18:06, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
I would agree that the statue is the primary motif of the photo. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:15, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
That was also the picture I found in Google's image cache.
You should note that Danish law has two different de minimis exceptions. Section 2 of article 24 covers works of art which are permanently installed in a public place, and section 3 of article 23 covers all works of art. The article 24 de minimis exception seems to be a lot more permissive than the article 23 de minimis exception. For example, in case U2009.875Ø, Østre Landsret ruled that it was permitted to include Edvard Eriksen's mermaid statue in a collage by Bjørn Nørgaard because the statue was not the main subject of the collage, so it seems that photos of Danish statues may be used commercially in collages, or at least in some collages. I have neither seen the collage nor read the ruling, but I would guess that Einar Utzon-Frank's statue is too prominent in this photograph and that the picture therefore can't be used commercially, meaning that it can't be on Commons. --Stefan2 (talk) 20:09, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

 Not done: The statue is the focal point of the photo and thus it would not be possible for someone to re-use this photo commercially. Green Giant (talk) 17:46, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Two files I wrongly tagged for deletion

I tagged these videos as copyvios via Standard Youtube License, and they were deleted, but it looks like I missed CC-BY-SA-4.0 International licensing info added by the uploaders (see User talk:INeverCry#Speedy deletion of two files). My apologies for the confusion. INeverCry 18:43, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Please explain how these videos fall within COM:SCOPE. Thuresson (talk) 21:22, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
They're usually in Category:Videos of electric multiple units, motor coaches and railcars, Category:Rail transport by country, and whatever category corresponds to the train model number. I was more concerned with the license review though, and these aren't my uploads, so perhaps Xenotron can address any scope issue if that's a problem. INeverCry 22:15, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
They show the route, the train in motion and the process of riding a train on it's exterior. Inside the scope of Wikipedia , they can be used in the article about the Siemens Desiro ES1/ES2G «Lastochka» train and in the article about riding outside of trains (train surfing). In the first case, they show the railway line in motion (train stations, railway tracks and etc.) from the point of view of a passenger, parts of the train such as pantographs, bogies/wheels, couplers and etc, and also speed and acceleration of the train. In the second case, they show different techniques of riding outside the trains from the first-person point of rider's view — it shows where and how a person can travel on the train as a stowaway without being spotted. The Siemens Desiro train has the unique construction of its front part which allows stowaways to hide behind the coupling device and observe the route like a train driver. However, some videos of passengers such as selfies (an example) are outside the scope, because they shows only personal faces and don't show any useful information like views of the route, parts of trains or the technique of travelling. — Xenotron (talk) 20:23, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
w:Train surfing. How are they not in scope? The activities are probably illegal in some countries, and look rather idiotic to me and I'd rather not promote them, but... it is something people do, and deleting them would be censorship to me. Carl Lindberg (talk) 23:20, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

@Pokéfan95: Dear admins, I can describe the situation: we, the family of the artist, own and keep some works and photos of Garry Blumenfeld (as well as Antonina Sofronova's and Irina Evstafieva's, whose paintings were removed from the Wikipedia page as well), I took the photos of these materials when I came to visit my parents and I work on sharing them at Wikipedia and other resources. What kind of proof I can provide? I'll ask my Mum about how the date is indicated on the photo, although she doesn't have a camera and I'll come to her house in July only. But I feel quite surprised with this problem. It's easy to compare my surname with those mentioned among the children and grandchildren of Garry Blumenfeld, Antonina Sofronova and Irina Evstafieva — it is obvious they're matching. Thank you.

File:This is Moscow Speaking Nikolai Arzhak (Yuli Daniel) 1966 Cover.jpg

Requesting undeletion as the file was clearly marked as released to Public Domain by RFE/RL. This information and verification link to the site with the file and PD notice was provided in the description. – Nkrita (talk) 21:56, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

On the site, click to expand the picture and look at the bottom right corner. All picture attributions are in English and embedded in the large versions of the picture.

By which process did an image by Yuli Daniel (1925-1988) become public domain? Thuresson (talk) 18:44, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
To be clear: Daniel wrote the novel. If you are asking me for this image's origin: Since I know the RFE/RL works with both Memorial and the archives of emigre U.S. publishers, I can guess that it originates from one of those.
Surely you are not asking me to somehow demonstrate to you that RFE/RL (a broadcaster not known for copyright violations) did not for some reason lie about this image status. Nkrita (talk) 19:06, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

deleting uploaded images

Dear admins, we have full right of the photos uploaded in commons (خواب_آب-01.JPG and خواب_آب-02.jpg). but the bot "CommonsDelinker" have deleted them for "Screenshot of non-free content". First, they are not "screenshots" from the movie, they are single photos and the uploaded images' resolustions show that. Second, I have the full copy right of them and you can search and see if there is any photo on internet exact the same. By the way I'm not very familiar to wikipedia system and I'll be happy if you help and let me learn the right rules.

File:Marioball.PNG

I am unable to contact Ellin Beltz as her userpage is heavily protected, so the request is being made directly here.

The reasoning in the DR was that it was a COM:DW of "Mario". That reasoning was not valid, as Ellin made note in her close. Her close stated that it was not in use, but that is not correct as was raised in the DR. It was in use at User_talk:Krzysiu#You_are_an_inspiration.

As per Commons:Project_scope#File_in_use_on_Commons_only, "by custom the uploading of small numbers of images (e.g. of yourself) for use on a personal Commons user page is allowed".

I can't help but think that Ellin deleted the file simply because it was created and uploaded by "Russavia". Is that now a valid reason for deletion on Wikimedia Commons? 177.66.105.162 19:36, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

The uploader's name was not and is not an issue to me nor did it have any bearing on this close. As part of our administrative backlog, I have been reviewing files which have exceeded the seven days allowed for nomination/closes. I removed this file because it was doodle-art by a non-notable artist, titled "Mario" showing the intent was to reference a video games, and out of scope. I did not see that it was in use on any user's page at the time of deletion or I would not have said "unused." If it was at some time, please note that User:Krzysiu was not the uploader, who was User:Russavia, hence "uploading of small numbers of images (e.g. of yourself) for use on a personal Commons user page" is not relevant as it was not put there to decorate the uploader's user page. Incidentally the file history shows that it was only also edited by the deletion nominator, bots, and banned users. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:15, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
Ellin Beltz it was obviously made as a "barnstar" type image by a "banned user" (then unbanned) for an "unbanned user". Have you consulted with the "unbanned user" Krzysiu to see if he was ok with you deleting the "barnstar"-like image? He had it on display on his user talk, so he obviously has no issue with it, and is likely to actually want it kept. BTW, if this was on use on another project's user talk page, this discussion wouldn't even be happening. Weird huh! 177.66.105.162 20:25, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Not really gonna comment with my fullest and honest opinion about this, due to the contagious nature of this issue (I'm holding back), but shouldn't it be the other way round? We should not delete images as out of scope which are in use on "the talk page of a Commons Administrator without the Administrator's involvement". Doing so would be out of line and not inline with deletion policy. When a file has been deleted and not inline ith policy, they should, per policy reasons be restored, and deleted with a legit reason - not the other way around, where we need a "better undeletion rationale". There can not be a better rationale than the file was deleted "in error". We should not wait or the admin to request it back, we should undelete it, since the admin did not remove the image.

Requests for comment/MP4 Video

Hey,

Requests for comment/MP4 Video was a redirect to Commons:Requests for comment/MP4 Video. For some reason it got sent to DR on Commons:Deletion requests/Requests for comment/MP4 Video ; I explained there why I believed there was no point in deleting this redirect ; however it was speedied into oblivion by Jcb without much explanation, and I got sent here by Pokéfan95 in case I would like this undeleted.

I was not aware the redirect creation had to be vetted by this forum ; but hey, let’s do that then: may I request the undeletion of that redirect?

Jean-Fred (talk) 15:44, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

I processed the speedy nomination of Pokéfan95. To be honest I don't see much use in keeping such a cross namespace redirect online. Would it work for you if I undelete it and then re-delete it with a link to Commons:Requests for comment/MP4 Video in the deletion reason? For the rare case people click this link from a message from years ago, they would be one click away from the real page. Jcb (talk) 16:23, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
I really don’t understand. What is the maintenance burden (if any) in keeping that redirect online? And if any, does it outweigh all the points outlined in meta:Don't delete redirects? What is the problem with having redirects around? Jean-Fred (talk) 17:14, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

  • @Rrburke: ✓ Done the jpg, but the png is even tinier. Technically not a speedy deletion candidate as a duplicate because of the different file formats, but I'm not sure restoring is the best idea (the point of keeping png formats is to provide archival losslessly compressed versions - that doesn't seem to make sense for a 0.03 megapixel photo).

File:アラン・メリル「涙」.jpg

copy righted photo usage - so i uploaded this photo which was taken by a photographer who is passed away, thus, it's a public domain and also I have a permission to use & comment on it by the musician. As a fan of this talent and wikipedia, I'm only trying to correct/precise the information for who may passes by this page, and there's no harm nor rudeness that I wish to cause (nor taking over someone else's credit) on the source/related people of the imagery. Pls put it back!!!

File:Coat of arms of Venezuela (1871).svg

Most of the time, a coat of arms SVG cannot really be "derivative" of a GIF in any ordinary or usual sense. Also, if no deletion notification was placed on this image's page, then the deletion could be considered out-of-process. I think it would be much more appropriate to nominate this file for deletion through ordinary processes, where its status can be discussed individually (without making the problematic assumption that this image's status is automatically subsumed under the status of the GIF). In fact, I can't see that the deletion of either the GIF or the SVG was ever discussed in a properly-notified in-process deletion discussion focusing on those files... AnonMoos (talk) 09:40, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

I can't see either of the originals, but I would agree -- calling an SVG a derivative work is not often obvious, and should go through regular DRs. You need to see if the precise lines/details in the SVG are being copied from that particular .gif. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:10, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

File:GoogleConferenceDoodle.jpg

This file was deleted as part of a mass deletion of files in Category:Google Doodle, archived here. The reasoning given was "Contains original art, subject to copyright.", however the file in question does not fit that criteria as it is an original free image of a depiction of a Google Doodle on the wall of a conference room at Google. The nominator appears to have predicted the possibility that a file would accidentally not fit the criteria of the nomination, as he wrote — "If any of these were actually produced by the uploader, rather than simply screenshots, I apologize for the nomination.". Can this file please be readded, as it was the header image for the Google Doodle article and is sorely missed there. I am the original uploader and was notified of the nom via Talk Page on Commons, but rarely visit Commons and did not see the notice in time. Thank you. Crumpled Fire (talk) 21:02, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

I believe it depicts how Google Doodles are an important part of the Google culture at large, with the Doodle being framed and placed on the wall of a company conference room. I'd agree with your derivative argument if it were just in any room or gallery unrelated to Google's facilities or culture. Crumpled Fire (talk) 23:59, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

en:Josephine Mutzenbacher claim that it has been published in English for more than 100 years but I can't find any pre-1970s copy in LOC or British Library. Thuresson (talk) 22:24, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
There was de facto censorship of a lot of this kind of stuff, so editions earlier than that probably had to be somewhat underground or anonymous. I do see this page which has a scan of a 35-page excerpt which they claim was published in 1935. The text is different, though at first blush seems like many of the same word choices, so the translations may be related. The publisher there was the "Erotica Biblion Society of London and New York". The original w:Erotika Biblion Society was in London from 1888 to 1909; this certainly seems like something they could have done at the time, but no idea if they did. This page has some other history; it claims there was a New York version published in 1931 -- the previous link may be part of that version. Those versions would be out of copyright (can't find any mention of renewals). The 1931 claim is repeated here, with the additional detail of illustrations by Mahlon Blaine -- which the excerpt above does not seem to have, so that may be a different edition. There was a new translation published in 1967 by Brandon House publishers; the translator was "Rudolf Schleifer", a pseudonym of Hilary E. Holt. That was registered with the US Copyright Office in 1968 with a publication date of September 1, 1967, registration A937749. There may have been a version by a competing publisher, Olympia Press, but I'm not sure. There was another version published in 1970 by Holloway House Publishers; translator was Paul J. Gillette. That was also registered, A170023 . Those would likely still be under copyright. The text of this version can be found online, but with no provenance -- when was this file originally uploaded here? I pasted several phrases from the book into Google Book search, and it seems to always return a 1979 French translation, for some reason (no preview at all so can't verify), among others. But nothing really solid. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:35, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
