File:Ao Tawhiti Discovery Campus.jpg[edit]

This is one of three images I released the rights to. The photo was taken at the school with permission, I had organized this weeks a go to improve the quality of the Ao Tawhiti article. There is no reason it should have been removed and I am happy to follow the steps necessary to prove rights ownership.

There were three files which were wrongfully removed:

File:Ao Tawhiti Discovery Campus.jpg

File:Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Campus.jpg


I had released these images to the public domain, as I have the right to.

File:FC8.H8177.879dc - Des destinées de l'ame - Harvard.jpg[edit]

There should be no copyright for this book. This may be a 3-dimensionial photograph but it has no additional creative element other than the original design from the 19th century. Further, as an official representative of the alleged/presumed copyright holders (Houghton Library, Harvard College), I was granted permission to offer a public domain license to the file (under the name User:Rob at Houghton. --Midnightdreary (talk) 15:40, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As you say, the book has no copyright, but the photograph certainly does. Assuming that the photographer who made the image is an employee of Harvard and has a work for hire agreement, Harvard owns the copyright to the photograph. Therefore, policy requires that in order for it to be restored, an officer of the library must send a free license directly to OTRS. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:07, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Just to clarify, in case it isn't clear: I uploaded the image as an employee/officer/representative of the library with the blessing of a PD tag. The image was created specifically to be entered into the public domain. --Midnightdreary (talk) 16:58, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Uploaded by a Wikipedian in residence as part of their job at Harvard. My deletion was likely mistaken. INeverCry 19:31, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
With all due respect to my colleague INC and to Midnightdreary, the latter hasn't answered the question of who took the photograph. The fact that Midnightdreary is Wikipedian in residence says nothing about whether he or she has been appropriately authorized by Harvard to give away its property.
If the image was taken by Midnightdreary, then it should be labeled as "own work" and we have no problem. If not, then policy requires that we have OTRS confirmation from Harvard in one of two ways -- either that Midnightdreary has a blanket authorization to upload works for which Harvard owns the copyright or that Harvard gives a free license (which could be CC-0 = PD) for this image. In either case, since Harvard will be giving away valuable property, that OTRS e-mail should come from an officer of the Harvard Corporation. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 10:20, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
True, I did not take the photograph myself. I hope you understand that I was employed by Harvard for this work, not merely a volunteer, so I was acting as an official authorized representative of the College. Nevertheless, I will have my former supervisor send an email, as you suggest. --Midnightdreary (talk) 12:43, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

File:Свод законов Российской империи том 01 (1912).djvu[edit]

I did not get the reason why this book was deleted. It's a completely different book comparing with File:Свод законов Российской империи. Том I (1833).djvu, created (compiled) by different editor at different time. So the deleted book cannot be simply "replaced" by the latter. Yes, that another edition was created by the government order, so it's sometimes called by the researches as an official edition while the nominated book -- often referred as a semi-official or private edition... So what, why both books (completely different books, though with same name) cannot be placed in Commons in order for users to work in Wikisource on transcribing both? No details of the decision were provided by User:Hedwig in Washington who performed the deletion... Hinote (talk) 08:28, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

If it were the uploader's copyright, it would be discussable. Just because an uploader uploads some PD work, doesn't give them any right to say it must be deleted.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:12, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Exactly! That's my position as well and that's why I insist on restoring all these deleted files -- simply let other users work on them in Wikisource. These are neither superseded by better versions nor are duplicates of already uploaded scans of the same books -- these compose a set of volumes of the completely different edition.

Two pictures of Gandhi[edit]

Hi, Could you please restore 2 pictures of Gandhi, should be licensed under {{PD-UK-unknown}}. Thanks, Yann (talk) 09:06, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

  • File:Gandhi studio 1931.jpg
  • File:Gandhi Downing Street.jpg
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose According to the deletion requests, there is no evidence whatsoever that the photographers are anonymous. {{PD-UK-unknown}} requires evidence of this. Besides, according to COM:L#Interaction of US and non-US copyright law, the files also need a valid copyright tag which proves that the files are freely licensed or in the public domain in the United States. You therefore also need to provide a valid United States copyright tag which proves this. --Stefan4 (talk) 14:09, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
    • I am studying Gandhi documents for the last 22 years. The author of these pictures is unknown. The copyright also expires before the URAA date. According to en:Copyright law of the United Kingdom, the term was 50 years until 1995. So the copyright expired in 1982 for pictures taken in 1931. This is the same situation as all other pictures in Category:Mohandas K. Gandhi in England. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:58, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
      • No, the UK retroactively restored copyright to 70pma on January 1, 1996, which coincided with the URAA date, so those restorations had an effect in the US as well (even if they were PD in both countries the day before). They are likely now fine in the UK but not the US, unless they were published in the US within 30 days of their being first published in the UK. Carl Lindberg (talk) 19:46, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
        • That's not what the article says: they extended the copyright period for all works which were then still in copyright. These pictures were out of copyright, so why would the copyright be extended? Regards, Yann (talk) 20:20, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
          • That's only a partial quote; the rest of the sentence says ", and (controversially) revived the lapsed copyright of all authors who had died in the previous 70 years, i.e. since 1925." I'm pretty sure the author of that sentence was not taking anonymous works into consideration one way or another. There's another sentence about this extension:
It contained a controversial provision, which caused certain copyrights to revive; material which had been out of copyright came back into copyright. If the 1988 Act offered a shorter term of protection than the new Regulations, and if the work was still under copyright on 1 July 1995 anywhere in the EEA, then the copyright of that work was revived.
          • Which means Germany law would have reanimated the copyright in the UK.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:00, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

          • Right, the article says and if the work was still under copyright on 1 July 1995 anywhere in the EEA. That is anywhere in the EEA, not just in the UK. So far, I don't think we've found an example of a work exempted because it was PD in all EEA countries. (The "anywhere in the EEA" text was right from the directive; some countries dispensed with that and basically codified the intended effect, i.e. that it applied to all works basically in order to harmonize the terms.) For example, Spain had an 80pma rule and I think used the rule of the longer term, which would probably cover just about anything less than 70pma / 70 years from publication.
