User:Shizhao cited the old-fashioned copyright declaration of Yunlin County Government to claim that the deleted file is not free. However, according to the e-mail User:S099001 received, the YCG has promised that it would delete the webpage. As for now, the page has been deleted. Therefore, the original reason to delete the page has disappeared. For more information about the change of copyright declaration on almost all websites of Taiwanese government, please read this document (in Chinese) publicized by Taiwanese National Development Council. Also, the related pictures (cropped from the deleted one) should be recovered, too.--Tyq2016 (talk) 11:23, 25 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Tyq2016: The source of this file is [1] and it is unclear to me how this document applies to an image published in www.yunlin.gov.tw in 2019? Ankry (talk) 11:23, 27 December 2021 (UTC) A license to be verified through website information needs to be present at the website together with the image itself at the time when the image is downloaded. Any further explanation, needs to go through VRT (in my opinion) unless based directly on copyright law. Ankry (talk) 11:28, 27 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done no explanation. Ankry (talk) 21:33, 30 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Nominator overlooked the license. The license can be found towards the bottom right-hand side of the page. Please read User:-revi/Tistory. Btspurplegalaxy (talk) 21:22, 28 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

As per Commons:Deletion requests/File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (3).jpg, the nominator stated that "I can find no licence at https://ohmysh-ing.tistory.com/149 which is the stated source", however the license which I assumed (given that I can't view the deleted the file/page) is "Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International" is actually there by clicking the Cc-by new white.svg icon which is located after the last photo of the website which when clicked will open up Creative Commons page.
I believe this is a collective upload together with File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (1).jpg, File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (2).jpg, File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (4).jpg, File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (5).jpg, File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (6).jpg, and File:190623 TCC 아트센터 팬사인회 효정 (7).jpg which are also from the same website with same source as well hence why is the 3rd photo of the collection deleted?

File:Health Affairs Journal Logo.png

Previously deleted on the debatable grounds of "Unused trivial logo of questionable notability". Unless I am mistaken, this logo is that of Health Affairs (source, static .png), which has had an article on English Wikipedia since 2009, and accurately presenting a simple text logo of a notable publication is 100% in line with COM:SCOPE, contrary to arguments raised in the one-person/one-closer deletion "discussion". --Animalparty (talk) 05:15, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Animalparty: Unused logos are out of scope. As the article is in enwiki since 2009, was the logo used in the article? Will it be used there if undeleted? Undeleted and still unused logo will be redeleted soon and we do not want ping-pong deletion/undeletion. Notifying @Yann: . Ankry (talk) 22:14, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No objection if there is a use for this file. --Yann (talk) 22:28, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Ankry: I disagree that unused logos are out of scope. I maintain that logos of notable organizations, whether currently in use or not, are in scope per COM:EDUSE, as "realistically useful for an educational purpose", broadly construed as "providing knowledge; instructional or informative". Logos can change over time, and hosting current as well as historic ones is educational, (e.g. A and B). I don't know whether this logo was used in any articles previously, but if the narrower COM:INUSE is to be the criterion over COM:EDUSE, it is simple to add it to Wikidata at a bare minimum, even if there were no Wikipedia articles at all. Note that the journal also has a Commons Category at Health Affairs. --Animalparty (talk) 22:43, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This is not convincing me. I would not support undeletion unless I see a real example of educational use of this particular logo in such case. But, maybe, another admin has a diffrent opinion. Potential educational use should not be accepted as the hosting reason for logos due to suspected misuse for advertising. However, we can host old, outdated logos under this rationale. But this is not the case. Ankry (talk) 10:42, 2 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

As VRT agent (verify), I will investigate the undeleted media and verify that the permission is sufficient to keep it (rights on media work + depicted work, FOP, copyright owner, country specific restrictions, etc.). I will also update the license (if needed) and add the appropriate VRT template.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Excerpt from Commons:Licensing:

Specifically, the following information must be given on the description page, regardless if the license requires it or not:
  • The License that applies to the material. This must be done using a copyright tag.
  • The Source of the material. If the uploader is the author, this should be stated explicitly. (e.g. "Created by uploader", "Self-made", "Own work", etc.) Otherwise, please include a web link or a complete citation if possible. Note: Things like "Transferred from Wikipedia" are generally not considered a valid source unless that is where it was originally published. The primary source should be provided.
  • The Author/Creator of the image or media file. (Italics are in the original, bold added.)

In this case, we do not know who the photographer was or anything about the ring. There are two copyrights -- one for the photograph and one for the ring itself. Either or both may have expired and the photographer may have been the original contributor to WP:EN, but none of that has been proven.

As for the DR, Commons:Deletion requests/File:Suren-Pahlav Clan Signet Ring.jpg had two participants -- the Nominator and the Deleting Admin. While the Nominator has not done much on Commons, the Admin is highly experienced. It was open for more than a month.

In fairness to the requestor, the site actually does say the official team photo as well as the portrait photos of the team are available "without rights" ("Das offizielle Mannschaftsfoto sowie die Potraitfotos des Teams sind rechtefrei verfügbar.") The problem with "rechtefrei" is that it is not necessarily to be interpreted literally. This can be understandably confusing to both German and English speakers, as rechtefrei (English speakers no doubt see the cognate: rights-free) seems self-explanatory. "Rechtefrei," however, often means only "freely available" (not the same as public domain, Gemeinfreiheit), which is why one often sees it in the form of "freely available for x". This random site is a good example: "Diese Fotos können rechtefrei für Presseartikel, Blogbeiträge, Lesungsankündigungen oder ähnliches genutzt werden. [...] Keine private Nutzung gestattet." ("These photos can be used without rights for press articles, blog posts, reading announcements or similar. [...] No private use permitted.") This statement would, of course, be nonsensical and self-contradictory if "rechtefrei" actually meant "public domain." Note also that even selecting the "native" English language option at the requestor's site (i.e., not running it through Google translator--although perhaps that's all it's doing through an API) renders "rechtefrei" as "freely available," not "public domain." Thus also an Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose from me as not sufficiently specific (required by COM:L) and per COM:PRP. A COM:VRT ticket seems best here, in no small part because the requestor themselves claimed this to be {{Cc-by-sa-4.0}} (very much not PD) at upload. Эlcobbola talk 15:55, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you very much. Kind regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Namalric86 (talk • contribs) 16:51, 6 January 2022‎ (UTC)[reply]

Wow. This image had been deleted nearly 3 years ago! You had claimed it as own work and from 2019; likely both is wrong. There was a ticket, but the volunteer, who worked on it, regrettably has passed away in between: {{OTRS received|id=2019032010003374|year=2019|month=March|day=29|reason=processing|user=Ronhjones}}. --Túrelio (talk) 17:01, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Owning a physical of digital copy of an image does not give one the right to freely license it as required here. That right almost always belongs to the actual photographer. The subject's dates are 1894-1975, so this image was almost certainly taken far too recently for us to assume that the photographer has been dead for 70 years.
Unless the VRT email has definitive evidence that either (a) the person sending it has a written license from the actual photographer giving him the right to freely license the image or (b) the actual photographer has been dead for 70 years, it cannot be restored.
Also note that claiming "Own Work" when you are not the actual photographer is a serious violation of Commons rules. If you do it again, you are likely to be blocked from editing here. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 17:12, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Please undelete this photo as it is made by the subject's (Henk Peeters) son, Mark, Henk Peeters' legal successor. I (Mark's wife) uploaded this photo, there is no copyright involved. It is free to use and to publish. Despite my expressed objections, the photo has been removed. This picture adds good information about Henk Peeters and it is free to use. It should therefore be undeleted.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As discussed in the DR, there are two copyrights here -- one for the work of art and the other for the photograph. Since the photographer is apparently also the artist's son and sole heir, one license will suffice but it must clearly state that he is licensing both the photograph in his capacity as photographer and the art work in his capacity as heir of the creator. Also note that "Mark, who gave permission to publish it on his fathers Wikipedia page" (quote from the DR) does not give sufficient permission. Commons and WP both require licenses that are free for any use by anybody anywhere and cannot be limited to a single WP page. .     Jim . . .

File:The House by the Railroad by Edward Hopper 1925.jpg

Please restore the following pages:

Reason: Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Paintings by Edward Hopper This was a painting published in 1925. The whole DR should be revisited since it was closed before some works could have been properly researched to keep them. Abzeronow (talk) 16:56, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Racconish and Clindberg: Ankry (talk) 00:58, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I investigated the publication history of Edward Hopper's House by the Railroad (1925) back when the DR was originally opened. The earliest evidence of publication I could find was in the following two exhibition catalogs:
So this artwork is definitely published no later than 1933. It has been PD for years if it lost protection due to failure to renew. But if the first publication I found was renewed, but I just couldn't locate the renewal, it will be PD on 1 January 2026 (or possibly before if there was an even earlier publication). —RP88 (talk) 01:42, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The "undelete" date in that PR is nonsensical, because it's based on the life date of the author, whereas U.S. copyright terms were based on publication (and renewal). That date would only make sense if the paintings were unpublished through 2003, which is rather unlikely. So, there should really be a series of undelete dates in there, though those can be hard to determine. Much of the time, we do assume publication of works not long after they were made. But I think most of the paintings in that DR were retained by the author, and donated to a museum upon the death of his wife -- which in turn means there was a very real possibility they remained unpublished until that point. The museum, not surprisingly, claims control of the copyright but that is far from clear if it exists, or if they would have the rights even if it did. The particular painting here is not part of that donation; it is owned by the Museum of Modern Art today and was likely purchased in the 1920s. But we may prefer better evidence of publication than a pure assumption, in these cases. The 1925 date on the nominated work was date of creation, not necessarily date of publication -- most of that DR was trying to find some evidence of publication, which would start the copyright clock, and then evidence of renewals after that point. If you have further information on publication, then that very well could change things. Also, at the time of the DR, 1923 was the 95 year line, and that line has now moved to 1927, so any possible publications in 1923 through 1926 would now make them definitely PD.
On the DR, User:RP88 did find this painting was in a 1930 catalog in which there was no copyright notice, so not sure why it was deleted. It was also published in a 1933 catalog, which was renewed, so if the first catalog was somehow not considered general publication, at the very latest it would be PD in 2029, so the DR should have had an undelete for that. But I'd probably Symbol support vote.svg Support undeletion of this one, on the basis of that 1930 catalog -- it would have seemed to become PD upon publication of that catalog, which itself states had 2250 copes in the "first edition". The other paintings in the DR are murkier. On balance, there is a good chance copyright has expired on them (or there are no heirs left to file lawsuits), but there may still be some significant doubts, and there are multiple museums which claim copyright control over the paintings they own, so we may want to have actual evidence for any tags we use. Carl Lindberg (talk) 02:31, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • IMO the 1930 catalog has indeed lost its copyright protection, but this loss only applies to this black and white reproduction, not to another later color reproduction of the original painting. — Racconish💬 12:41, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment We are investigating copyright status of the original painting, not copyright status of any particular reproduction. If the painting is PD, any its 2D reproduction would be PD, regarless of technology and colouring. And I do not think that the painting may ever have "limitted PD" status that applies only to some of its attributes. Ankry (talk) 22:32, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • BTW, maybe the 1930 catalog is worth uploading to Commons? Ankry (talk) 22:32, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with you, we are investigating the copyright status of Hopper's painting, not of its reproduction by the MOMA. But I am concerned we might be evaluating the copyright status of the painting on the basis of the copyright status of the derivative work, the reproduction in the MOMA's 1930 catalog. The later work, the catalog, is based on an earlier work, the painting, but the copyrights status remain separate as long as they have not been published by the same entity: the catalog includes a reproduction of the painting with the permission of its owner, Stephen Clarke, but it seems the copyright aspect has been dispensed with, which cannot be taken to imply the reproduction in the MOMA's catalog has been published by the copyright owner, Hopper. We have similar issues with films: some are PD, yet they incorporate non PD prior works whose copyright protection have to be acknowledged, and some PD films have been republished with additional elements, e.g. soundtrack, which have a separate copyright. Yes, it is a confusing situation, but we need to find a rationale if we are trying to establish the copyright status of Hopper's painting based on the copyright status of the reproduction by the MOMA who was not the copyright owner. In very simple terms: does a painter lose his copyright because a museum which does not even own a painting publishes a reproduction of the painting without even saying they have the painter's permission? If so why? At this point, I do not see such a rationale and consider the PCP should apply to the copyright status of the painting. — Racconish💬 10:33, 2 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    • @Racconish: 2D reproduction of a 2D work is not a derivative work as it is not a separate work. At least in US. Ankry (talk) 20:17, 2 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    • I don't think it's a given that Hopper still owned copyright -- MOMA claims copyright today, right? Was there a documented sale of the copyright later? Particularly if we are claiming it was unpublished; at that point the sale of an unpublished work still subject to common-law copyright, can imply the sale of the copyright as well, as that would be subject to common law (which can differ by state). Museums typically claim copyright ownership for transferred objects in that era. The rule did not become ironclad until 1978 with the new law; before that cases went both ways. So for any paintings he sold, Hopper is not necessarily the copyright owner, and there is all sorts of gray area over what would be an authorized publication. There is one case mentioned in summary here where a photo used in a collage, and the collage being published in a magazine, and with a poster being made with it, did nothing to protect their rights until years later, qualified as injecting the photo into the public domain anyways. Was Hopper unaware of the exhibition at the MoMA and the catalog? If the museum did not stop photography, the display in the museum itself could also be publication at some point. The color question is rather interesting though; the black and white version certainly seems to be published to me, but some of the expression (the color) might not have been. Carl Lindberg (talk) 17:18, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
      • A little clarification : the 1930 MOMA catalog was likely published before the end of the related exhibition, on January 12, 1930. At that time, the painting was owned by Clark. He donated it to the MOMA in May 1930 [7]. This was something quite new for them at the time : as the Museum puts it they were "entering relatively uncharted territory" [8] and it is very likely they were doing mistakes such as not caring for copyright to the extent of forgetting the copyright notice. — Racconish💬 23:07, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
      • The year of Clark's gift to the MOMA is maybe not 1930 but 1931. A few sources (e.g. [9]) mention it was made to coincide with Nelson Rockfeller's nomination as president of the Booard of trustees in 1931 and subsequent new orientation of the museum. — Racconish💬 09:33, 8 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
        • Interesting, thanks. But either Clark owned the copyright (which was then gifted to the museum), meaning the 1930 catalog was with permission, or Hopper still owned it (meaning the museum would not even today), and he would have had to renew it at some point (definitely following the publication in the 1933 catalog I would think). If the museum did not own the copyright, don't think their renewal of the 1933 catalog would serve to renew the painting. Carl Lindberg (talk) 21:36, 8 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

File:HOPE'87 - Hundreds of Original Projects for Employment.jpg, 2

Herewith I request you again to restore the Wikipedia entry of HOPE’87 (file linked above). HOPE’87 is a charity organization, which is based on the UN resolution 40/16 "Opportunities for Youth" adopted by the General Assembly on the occasion of the International Youth Year of the UN (1985). Since spring 1991, the international initiative of HOPE´87 is affiliated with the United Nations through a "Memorandum of Understanding" between the Republic of Austria on behalf of HOPE´87 and the United Nations regarding common strategies to fight youth unemployment. HOPE’87 provides international development cooperation to vulnerable people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe and has helped thousands of people in need and saved a lot of lives within the last 35 years. Having explained that, I cannot comprehend why HOPE’87 should not be a useful member for Wikimedia projects – or do you regard development cooperation as not useful? The HOPE’87 logo in question was designed at the beginning of our history by the staff of HOPE’87, which the current Secretary General Robert Ottitsch guarantees. This logo is the property of HOPE’87 and is used since the foundation of the organisation in 1987. Here is the link to our latest Activity Report: http://www.hope87.at/sites/default/files/Activity%20Report%202020-2021_0.pdf Our Webpage: http://www.hope87.at; https://hope87.org; http://hope87bd.org/about-us Our organisation is also listed in a range of other websites and documents, which can find following these links: https://en.unesco.org/sites/default/files/list_ngos_official_partners_unesco.pdf; https://www.developmentaid.org/#!/organizations/view/2180/hope87; https://www.devex.com/organizations/hope-87-70652; https://reporting.unhcr.org/document/1292 I therefore request you again to undelete our Wikipedia entry as we think that HOPE’87 is indeed very useful for the international community and we guarantee that the logo is the property of HOPE’87! — Preceding unsigned comment added by HOPE87 (talk • contribs)

Доброго дня! Прошу восстановить данное изображение, поскольку наличие копирайта обусловлено устным договором с автором фотографии, Алексеем Лерером. Кроме того с фотографом заключен сублицензионный договор на исключительное право на произведение - фотографию - ее распространение и воспроизведение Good day! I ask you to restore this image, since the copyright is due to an oral agreement with the author of the photo, Alexey Lehrer. In addition, a sublicense agreement has been concluded with the photographer for the exclusive right to the work - the photograph - its distribution and reproduction --Goldpizzaman (talk) 14:18, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Goldpizzaman: Copyright-related agreements require written form. In order to undelete the image Aleksey Lerer needs to send a free license permission to VRT. A permission that allows only distribution and reproduction is not compatible with Wikimedia Commons, see COM:L. Ankry (talk) 16:40, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well, we sent the author of the photo a request for a written agreement specifically for Wikimedia Commons, but I also ask you to pay attention that the image in the sculpture photo belongs directly to the sculptor, as well as his portrait, for which the photo was used. Thus, in addition to the agreement on the transfer of exclusive rights to the photo, the work falls under the FAL.
The response to the request will be received by Tuesday morning (January 18), please do not close the discussion until the author responds. But I also want it to be taken into account that the sublicense agreement signed by us and the author implies the following: 2.2.1. The use of the work regardless of whether the relevant actions are performed for profit or without such purpose, in particular:
1. reproduction of a work, that is, the production of one or more copies of a work or part of it in any material form, the production in three dimensions of one or more copies of a two-dimensional work. At the same time, the recording of a work on an electronic medium is also considered reproduction, except in the case when such a recording is temporary and forms an integral and essential part of a technological process with the sole purpose of lawful use of the recording or lawful communication of the work to the public;
2. distribution of the work by sale or other alienation of its original or copies;
3. public display of the work, that is, any demonstration of the original or a copy of the work directly or on the screen with the help of film, slide, television frame or other technical means, directly or by technical means in a place open to the public, or in a place where there is a significant number of persons who do not belong to the usual family circle, regardless of whether the work is perceived at the place of its demonstration or in another place simultaneously with the demonstration of the work;
4. export of the original or copies of the work for distribution purposes;
5. a broadcast message, that is, a message (display) of a work for public information on television (including by retransmission), with the exception of a cable message. At the same time, a message is understood as any action by which a work becomes accessible to visual perception, regardless of its actual perception by the public. When broadcasting works via satellite, broadcasting means the reception of signals from a ground station to a satellite and the transmission of signals from a satellite, through which the work can be brought to the public regardless of its actual reception by the public. A message of encoded signals is recognized as an on-air message if the decoding means are provided to an unlimited number of persons by an on-air broadcasting organization or with its consent;
6. communication by cable, that is, the communication (display) of a work for public information on television using cable, wire, optical fiber or similar means (including by retransmission). A message of encoded signals is recognized as a cable message if the decoding means are provided to an unlimited number of persons by a cable broadcasting organization or with its consent;
7. processing of the work. At the same time, the processing of a work is understood as the creation of a derivative work (processing and the like);
8. making the work available to the public (display) in such a way that any person can access the work from any place and at any time of their own choice (making it available to the public). Goldpizzaman (talk) 07:57, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Fair use is allowed at some Wikipedias, but not here at Commons. All uploads at Wikimedia Commons need to be free for anyone to use for any purpose. De728631 (talk) 18:23, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It is just a modified image that has only been improved. The person who added it on the Wikipedia Arabic website stated that it's "a picture from the advertising campaign to nominate the member (in the picture) for elections and therefore free for use". المستخدم مستخدم (talk) 18:31, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
And there seems to be the error. In most countries, photographs are automatically copyrighted once they are created and anybody else is not allowed to upload the original or any modified version without permission from the photographer. Please see COM:DW for clarification. So, to undelete the image, we need to know the country where the photo was first published, and we need to know if there is in fact an exemption from copyright for material used in election campaigns. De728631 (talk) 18:37, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Per Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Egypt, there is no copyright exemption for election campaigns, so I'm afraid we cannot restore the photo. De728631 (talk) 18:51, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, as I wrote above, fair use may be claimed for local uploads at some select Wikipedias, but we do not accept it here at Commons. This is because Commons serves all Wikimedia projects including those countries where there is no fair use concept in copyright. Fair use means that you are allowed to take a copyrighted image that is usually non-free and use it under some few and very strict exceptions. At Commons though, all uploads must be free for all purposes and all users. So fair use images may not be transferred to Commons. De728631 (talk) 19:08, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, the original upload contained copyrighted material. The last version would be fine to restore because it is far away form the original file. Could you please do so? Biggerj1 (talk) 09:18, 23 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I have temporarily restored it for discussion. I think the new version no longer contains any copyrightable aspects of the original, and derives merely from the information of the original (like a Wikipedia article paraphrasing a copyrighted news article). -- King of ♥ 15:50, 23 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have no problem on copyright grounds, but I don't think the image properly shows the technique. The whole point is that the items being imaged don't move between steps yet here we see a square grid in the center on the left and in the center a random pattern with only five items from the grid in the same place as on the left. Also, the size of the donut in the middle does not match the red itemss -- all those in the white area should be red since they have not been switched off by the orange beam.

Since this was not the reason for the deletion of the file, this probably should be closed as Done and a DR opened. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 18:04, 23 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Biggerj1: Can you redo your version with an evenly spaced square grid? That part is obviously not copyrightable and there is no problem with keeping it from the original as long as you change the colors, design, etc. -- King of ♥ 20:15, 23 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Mrmw: created the svgs :) as far as I understand the principle you could easily remove the grid completely and replace it by some transparent circles which represent the switching on and off areas. Then the image is even further away from the original :) Biggerj1 (talk) 08:37, 24 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

As I understand it, the circles or dots in all three places should be the same pattern. Presumably that should be random, not a grid. The image on the right should have all the circles that were inside the donut in the middle colored as those are the items that were not turned off by the donut shaped beam. .     Jim . . .
