File:1911 Planul Urbanistic General al Capitalei.PNG and File:Planul Urbanistic al orașului București din 1911.PNG[edit]

The map is from year 1911 and the author is represented by the Romanian Army's Geographical Service.

The source from which the images were extracted: Sfințescu, Cincinat I.; Studiu asupra Planului General de Sistematizare al Capitalei; Tipografia Jockey-Club; București; România, 1919

I believe that the license may be revised per {{PD-RO-exempt}}. The image's information must be uptaded too, and if the photo will be recovered I will make it.--Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 23:12, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

What line in {{PD-RO-exempt}} do you believe covers maps? Эlcobbola talk 15:43, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Look in the lower left corner of the map, where it says "EDIȚIA OFICIALĂ" (means "official edition"). I think in this case (but I am not sure) that the map is assimilated with an published official document. --Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 19:41, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The list of documents excluded from copyright protection in {{PD-RO-exempt}} does not include maps. The template does not say "official documents" but instead "official texts" which implies limitation to prose. Эlcobbola talk 19:59, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Otherwise, since the author is a "legal entity" as the Romanian Army's Geographical Service, the license could be revised per {{PD-Romania}} - "It is another kind of work, the author is a legal entity („persoană juridică” - not a person) and 50 years have passed since the date of its publication" (and the publication had occurred in 1902). --Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 20:11, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

The legal entity approach with {{PD-Romania}} may have some merit; however, I am unable to find support in Romanian Copyright Law. Chapter V covers "Duration of Copyright Protection" and says nothing about 50 years for legal entities. Also, searching the document for "50" (i.e., to find references to 50 years after publication) yields no support either. Could it be this is the repealed article 29 in Chapter V? Otherwise, could you please find the chapter, article and section for the copyright duration of works by legal entities? I may just be missing it, but, if not, the template appears incorrect. Эlcobbola talk 14:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
It looks like that part is from Article 7 of the Decree No. 321 of 1956. That was probably eliminated in 1996 with the new law, but since the new law appears to not be retroactive, corporate works from before 1946 may be fine. Carl Lindberg (talk) 15:30, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, look at Decree 321/1956, Art. 7, last sentence (explanation here on page 125, the fourth paragraph). --Accipiter Q. Gentilis (talk) 00:37, 20 August 2016 (UTC) P.S. The template must be completed: "....and 50 years have passed since the date of its publication (only if it was before March 14, 1946)"

File:Nagaland map.png Own work[edit]

File:Nagaland map.png should be undeleted. I can confirm that I made the map using government of india website by using inkscape tool. i have not voilated any cc laws. i have released the map in common domain. --Wikigringo (talk) 05:02, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Does {{EdictGov-India}} extend to maps on a website? From the text in the template I'd think that only official edicts published in certain gazettes and the like are exempt from copyright in India. Any other governmental work is still copyrighted and non-free. De728631 (talk) 21:57, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment There are multiple versions here. One map was uploaded in 2006 by Shizhao. In 2008, Wikigringo uploaded an entirely different map over the 2006 version, but reverted himself 6 minutes later. The 2006 "original" was then there until it was deleted 5 September 2015. For which version are you requesting restoration? Also, what is the "government of india website" you used? Эlcobbola talk 19:38, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I think Wikigringo's version was then uploaded to File:Nagalandmap.png, which is still there. Out of curiosity though, what was the basis of deleting a file for "no source" after it was uploaded for nine years? Was it a valid tag to add? Shizhao is a longtime admin here, if I'm not mistaken. Carl Lindberg (talk) 11:35, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Wikigringo said above "I can confirm that I made the map," which suggests we are talking about his short-lived version, not the Shizhao version. However, regarding the Shizhao version, @Ellin Beltz: tagged it as no source, which seems technically appropriate as there was no reference to the underlying map's source. (The file is not old enough to fall under COM:GRANDFATHER.) That said, I'm inclined to Symbol support vote.svg Support the Shizhao version, as the underlying map appears to be File:India-locator-map-blank.svg. Эlcobbola talk 14:42, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
File:Nagalandmap.png has source and is in use, the original layer of File:Nagaland map.png has no source and is not old enough to grandfather. I have no objections to restoring the file as long as a source can be agreed upon. Also, we have several other maps of the area, see Category:Maps of Nagaland. Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:54, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I think what happened here is that Wikigringo got the deletion notice for File:Nagaland map.png, saw it had been deleted, and mistakenly believed the notice referred to File:Nagalandmap.png. That would explain the bizarre rationale ("I can confirm that I made the map") about a file made by Shizhao. @Shizhao: could you confirm the source of the file? Is it File:India-locator-map-blank.svg or something else? Эlcobbola talk 19:46, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
Correct; Wikigringo's version is still around, so the initial undeletion reason above was just a misunderstanding. I'm just wondering about Shizhao's version. If that said "own work", then it does not need a source -- that is the sourcing claim. If we are wondering about the source of data, that is an inappropriate use of a speedy delete tag, which is for copyright reasons only. I can't see the original though, so it may be obvious the underlying map was copied from somewhere else. That user is a long-time admin on Commons and I think meta, and usually knows what he's doing. Granted, it was uploaded a long time ago, and mistakes were easier to make then. Was the page text changed at all during the short-lived Wikigringo version?

File:Ioana Ciolacu Portrait.jpg[edit]

Hi there,

So these files were deleted because of a violation probability. While I understand that one should be very careful with file permission, I assure you that this particular picture is my own and that I choose to upload it on wiki commons. Also, the following pictures File:Ioana Ciolacu backstage at Stella McCartney show in Paris.jpg File:Ioana Ciolacu and Stella McCartney backstage in Paris.jpg File:Ioana Ciolacu & Stella McCartney during DfT Awards 2013.jpg were given to me during 2013 by the owner (a company) to use it to promote my brand and were widely spread through internet, I think maybe we should discuss if I am allowed to put them here before deleting it. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chocomoto (talk • contribs) 08:05, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Owning physical copies of photographs or artwork does not make you the copyright holder even if you were given permission to use them for promotion. Media hosted at Commons need to be free for anyone else to use for any purpose. This can only be achieved through a permission from the original copyright holder.
