@Paul E Ford: The image might be too small; why are you not uploading the full resolution photo? This filter is intended to avoid copyright issues with images "simply taken from Google Images" with a low resolution and low encyclopedic value. In this specific case, it might have been a false positive -- but it didn't need to: Uploading the full resolution will hopefully not cause this problem. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 19:36, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Report by Asm editor37[edit]

@Asm editor37: The filter was likely absolutely correct: As an employee, you do not have the necessary rights to release your employer's trademarked logo under a free license, granting all people in the world, irrevocably, free public commercial use of the image. This is very unlikely what the copyright owner wanted, and it is also relatively unlikely to have been your intention. The warning has a reason, and ignoring it causes more work than listening to it.

  • Edit kind: Was trying to upload a ogv format video file. The abuse filter identified the video as harmful. It was just a video I took of a hailstorm intended for the Wikipedia page on "Hail".
  • Comments: The video was two minutes long at high definition, making a file size of 63 MB. Could this be too large? Shollos (talk) 20:28, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Edit kind: I was trying to upload a photo of my great uncle Bishop John William Comber. I am in possession of numerous original photos taken of my great uncle but I am unable to upload any of them as I am uncertain of the copyrights regarding these old original photos by photographers who are probably no longer living. Then I tried to upload a photo that I know that either my father or my long passed grandfather took of my great uncle. I am certain that my father nor my long dead grandfather would object to my use of the photo. However, this photo was also rejected. I am wondering how photos taken by people who are no longer living are able to be published on websites. I also have some outstanding photos of my uncle including one photos taken of him with the Pope in 1957. I don't know who owns the copyrights to photos taken by photographers who are no longer living. Do I not have rights to old original photos that I and my family are the owners of? Do I even rights to a photo taken by a relative now passed. Obviously, I cannot acquire permission from someone who is no longer living.

Kathleen Comber (Grand Niece of John William Comber)
