Why use Wikidata links?[edit]

Why not use Wikipedia links? Wikipedia links tend to not be stable, as more people get added to Wikipedia, names get shuffled around. Your "John Smith" might be moved to "John J. Smith" or "John J. Smith Sr." or "John James Smith" or "John Smith (politician)" or "John Smith (mayor)" or "John Smith (1800-1900)" or "Sir John Smith". Your "John Smith" entry may be converted to a disambiguation page and become "John Smith (disambiguation)". Even if the person has a relatively unique name like "John James Joseph Smith" there may be a child and grandchild that gets a future entry and the existing entry becomes "John James Joseph Smith Sr." or "John James Joseph Smith I". Some Wikipedia entries contain Unicode characters that are not allowed in urls, and the name in the link will display the Unicode, making the name unreadable. Wikidata Q-numbers are more stable, if a duplicate entry is created, the two are merged and a redirect is created from the duplicate entry.

Mugshots[edit]

I looked through the renewal database for over 10 years and I have never found an example of a jurisdiction registering for a copyright, or registering for a renewal for a copyright for a mugshot. It wouldn't make economic sense to have the jurisdiction's lawyers to file for registration, when there would be no future economic gain by republishing a mugshot. This would only apply to pre-1989 images, after that they would be automatically copyrighted and would have to be released into the public domain by that jurisdiction's sunshine laws. Mugshots have been considered published, because they are made available to the public, multiple copies are made and filed chronologically and by name, and a copy forwarded to the National Crime Information Center, master collection used by federal agencies.

Image AI searching PD newspapers[edit]

Most used info[edit]

Artistic versis non-artistic[edit]

PD-Sweden-photo. All images taken prior to the law change on 1 January 1973 that are not "artistic" were never eligible for copyright. For an example of an artistic image. See File:Salvador Dali A (Dali Atomicus) 09633u.jpg where the photographer uses a a set, costumes, and/or elaborate poses. Just pressing the shutter, is something a monkey can do. See: File:Macaca nigra self-portrait large.jpg.

Character copyright[edit]

The image was deleted based on a flawed understanding of the concept of a character copyright. We house over a dozen images from the tv show because those specific images have fallen into the public domain, even though the character may still be under copyright. Having the character under copyright prevents people from creating new content based on the character and have nothing to do with images that have fallen into the public domain.

Courts have disagreed with you. Only elements of a PD movie or whatever which are not derivative of existing works are OK. If it's a derivative work, it's still a derivative work, and if the underlying work (such as a character copyright) is still under copyright, that author loses none of their rights. The Warner Bros vs Avela case said: We also held above that the characters of Tom and Jerry are not in the public domain. In addition, because the characters achieved copyright protection through the short films before all but the first movie poster entered the public domain, and the later movie posters necessarily exhibit those characters, even the use of any movie poster but the first requires Warner Bros.’s authorization. Publicity material which comes out before a movie is generally public domain if notice was forgotten, because the character copyright is established by the actual movie which comes later. However, if later material becomes public domain, it is not OK to use if it is still derivative of another work. So, "public domain" posters from a later movie were not OK, since the earlier movie established the character copyright. They also site the case of Russell v. Price, where a movie was not renewed, but distributing copies of that movie was still infringement of the original play on which the movie was based -- only the original movie producers had the derivative license. The article you cite does not state anything like your claim -- that was a claim that some general traits from later Sherlock Holmes books (still under U.S. copyright) were used in a Netflix movie. Netflix said that the claims did not amount to protectable expression -- general "niceness" traits aren't enough for copyright, since a character copyright is created by more specific details. I don't think a judge ruled either way on the merits, since the article says the lawsuits were dismissed or withdrawn (likely indicating an out-of-court settlement). Carl Lindberg (talk) 05:54, 26 December 2022 (UTC)

Russia[edit]

Publication according to the URAA and Berne agreements is when an image is "made public", not just published/republished in a book. "Made public" is when an image leaves the custody of the photographer and an image goes to the sitter. I could see a claim of unpublished if we had evidence that an image remained with a photographer and was never seen by a member of the public, or if we had specific Russian case law that narrowed the definition of "published". Some jurisdictions have clearly defined what published/unpublished means, but not Russia.

PD[edit]

Please note the following chart refers to publication dates, not to creation dates. An early creation date does not ensure the item is public domain in the US. The chart refers only to items that were created before 1976 and not published in the US within 30 days of publication abroad. If they were published in the US within 30 days, they need the relevant US template, as US law exclusively applies. If they were not published in the US within 30 days, and were created 1976 or later, they are not public domain in the US. Please note the following chart shows that we must have publication information about each image in order to prove its public domain status.

Can we automate the uploading of political graveyard Flickr. See https://www.flickr.com/photos/politicalgraveyard/, under a CC license. Usually User:Fae would automate this, but he appears inactive and never trained anyone in how he automated the process with Flickr2Commons. If someone would make a training video, that would be appreciated.

Newspaper style[edit]

  • {{block center|width=350px| }}

What links here[edit]

"What links here" at Wikidata needs to show usage as "Structured data" at Commons. We often delete entries in Wikidata because we do not realize they are in use at Commons because we do not link to them.

Family tree template[edit]

Suggestions:

  • If there is a birth_name available, use the birth name for women, so it doesn't look like someone has married a cousin.

Creator templates[edit]

  • It says: "Unused templates (except maintenance/project templates that are substituted), are subjected to speedy deletion." But {{Creator:John Smith}} and {{Creator|wikidata=Q}}, are in use at Wikidata and at Commons, even if it is not connected to an image that is currently on displayed for the general viewer. The Utility being that when the images are restored, when they are in the public domain, they are already attached to a creator template with the proper life and death dates. Remember, and image is never deleted, just hidden from view from most viewers. When the suggested restoration date is reached, the editor will want to be looking at the birth and death dates in the Creator template to confirm the restoration date. Doe anyone else agree?

Not renewed[edit]

{{PD-US-not renewed}} [http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/cce/firstperiod.html Works copyrighted before 1964 had to have the copyright renewed sometime in the 28th year]. If the copyright was not renewed, the work is in the public domain. No renewal notice was found for this periodical for issues published in this year. For instance, the first [http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/cinfo/nytimes New York Times issue renewed was from April 1, 1928]. Some publications may have renewed an individual article from an earlier time, for instance the New York Times renewed at least one article published on January 9, 1927. If you find any contrary evidence, or the renewal database has been updated, please notify me. No renewal notices have been found for articles supplied by the Associated Press to subscribing newspapers.

Category migration[edit]

Public domain archive[edit]

How do you prove an image is anonymous and has no source on the internet?[edit]

Historical images are often nominated for deletion because they are marked "source=own work" and the uploader is listed as the creator. Commons:Project scope/Evidence requires that we provide a url if we download an image from the internet, but many images stored at Commons from the past are marked "own work" presumably because someone has scanned or rephotogrphed an existing image. What is required beyond the due diligence of a reverse image search against the billion images online, and doing a standard Google Image Search based on the name of a person, place or thing, to show that no author has been named, and the image is anonymous; and that there is no source online and the image was a scan or a photograph of an existing image. Epistemology doesn't allow the absolute proof of absence, so how much must be done to declare an image anonymous, to avoid deletion?

Simple photography versus art photography[edit]

Simple photographs, require pressing the shutter on a camera, something a monkey can do. Images need the complex staging of what most people would think of as an art photo, like in this image: File:Salvador Dali A (Dali Atomicus) 09633u.jpg. If the law was meant to give special status to commercial photography they would have used that term in the wording.

Fulton History[edit]

When I do a search I get the search terms highlighted, which I can remove by turning off Annotations at the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen. When I take a screen shot I have no highlights. The problem is when the article is large and a screen shot will not grab the article at sufficient resolution, so I download the pdf, open in GIMP and then cut and paste the article into a new GIMP window. The problem is that the highlights are always there, whether Annotations is turned on or turned off. Answer: Truncate the last part of the url from "&DocId=####" to "&.pdf".

Published[edit]

One of the details not discussed at Commons:Publication is our default position on when an image leaves the custody of the original photographer: Do we consider images found in circulation to have left the custody of the photographer (published) at the time of creation. Or do we consider images found in circulation to have not left the custody of the photographer (unpublished) at the time of creation. For instance most images taken by a commercial photographer are sent to the sitter, and those that are never picked up are eventually discarded. It is rare for a set of photographs to remain with a photographer and make it to an archive like the Library of Congress. For instance we have the Bain Collection where the original negatives remained with the news agency and a portion were never appeared in magazines and newspapers, and never left the custody of the news agency. These would be unpublished by default.

When is a photograph made public[edit]

See the discussions here that discuss precedent and case law:

Current year[edit]

  • January 1, {{#expr:{{CURRENTYEAR}} - 95}}

Good advice[edit]

User:Animalparty

Clawback[edit]

The license it was released under is irrevocable and it is past the courtesy claw back period. There may be users outside the Wiki Universe that have republished the image and we would be erasing evidence of the license. A sinister person could have an image deleted here, then sue republishers, once the evidence has been deleted.

Scope[edit]

  • I find problematic the wording in Commons:Scope "Examples of files that are not realistically useful for an educational purpose: Private image collections ". It is often used in debates for deletion, ignoring the list of examples because no list can contain all examples. Every image uploaded by a user from their own camera is uploading images from their "private image collections". My series of local churches and my series of local cemeteries are all from my "private image collections" and are not wanted according to scope. This really should be reworded to remove the phrase "private image collections" and just include "private party photos, photos of yourself and your friends, your collection of holiday snaps and so on." Even "holiday snaps" is problematic if I take images of churches and cemeteries while on vacation, they appear to be not wanted by Commons. As worded my trip would have to be dedicated to the purpose of taking images and not involve any vacation activities or be taken on a holiday. I imagine most images taken outside of one's home area are taken while on vacations/holidays.
  • I find problematic the wording in Commons:Project scope "Must not contain only excluded educational content." It is so poorly worded with a double negative that it is incomprehensible. An explanation is given as to what it means "no news", and then a second explanation that contradicts no-news, with "yes news". I have had public domain obituaries deleted because of the no-news rule.

Problems with source and date[edit]

Imagine a painting by Gilbert Stuart (1800) later made into an anonymous engraving (1900) and then me scanning the engraving or taking a photo of it with my iPhone (2000) and uploading it to Commons (2020). We ask for a date and a source when uploading without specifying you expect the date of the original painting, or the derivative engraving, or the derivative scan. You also ask for the source, again of what, the painting, the engraving, or am I the source of the scanned image. I see almost daily nominations for deletion because the nominator is expecting the date of the Gilbert Stuart painting or of the engraving, but Commons Upload used the metadata date from the scan. How is a novice uploader expected to know which date is the preferred one? The same goes for using source=own_work, which the derivative scan or photograph actually is.

When is a photograph published?[edit]

Mention images that stay with the photographer.

Publication for the purposes of copyright is when a "discernable copy" or a "derivative copy" or a "tangible copy" has been distributed or viewed by the public. It does not mean appearing in a book, magazine, or newspaper. For a modern photograph the original creative work is the original camera negative (OCN), any print or duplicate of the OCN is a "discernable copy". The act of the photographer sending a copy to the person appearing in the image is the equivalent of publication for copyright purposes. This would not apply to daguerreotypes in which the positive on a metal plate is the original creative work, or images taken with an instant camera. Some negatives in collections may never have had a print distributed. For instance, the Library of Congress houses the Bain Collection original glass negatives, some of which may not have been printed and distributed. Up until 1976 distributed images needed to have a copyright notice. Images after 1977 no longer needed a visible copyright symbol.

Video conversion[edit]

Hi all. Just uploaded a webm video, which looks a bit lousy / pixelated. Yet exactly the same video on You Tube looks fine. Anything I can do to get a better, crisper, higher resolution? Thanks! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 15:45, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Llywelyn2000, webm can be quite lossy, so that's part of it. The part you can control is the software you use for the conversion. Most of the free software solutions are absolutely terrible at converting to webm, even with maximum-quality settings selected. Recently, Avidmux was recommended to me, and I strongly recommend giving it a try. Just make sure you select (in the left column) VP9 for video, Vorbis for audio, and convert to Webm. Click "Configure" under Video Output and make sure quality is set to best (can't remember exact wording, not at my home computer atm). The program is a little more technical than other options, but the quality is superb. Huntster (t @ c) 16:39, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Really thankful for this. One question: why is the upload on You Tube (see my link above) much better yet same file was uploaded to both sites? Llywelyn2000 (talk) 17:22, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Llywelyn2000, I'm looking back at things, and I'm wondering if you were seeing a lower-resolution version created by the Mediawiki software. I'm not sure how the back-end works for video, but I know the lower resolution encodes get finished first, followed later by the better quality encodes (which of course take more time). When you click on the video at File:Generating WP articles from WD.webmhd.webm and click on the little gear icon at lower right, is "WebM Source" selected or one of the lower resolutions? Honestly, the video is looking pretty good to me at the moment when it is in WebM Source mode. Huntster (t @ c) 17:50, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
If it's possible for you to use Vimeo, that does the best conversions to Webm that I've been able to find. - Jmabel ! talk 17:52, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
@Huntster: No, HTML5 VP9 player is selected. No idea why. Can't seem to change it to the original. Is this the default? @Jmabel: i used Mirai Video Converter, and converted from a 1.48 GB mov file. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 18:02, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Llywelyn2000, I honestly cannot say why. I don't have that as an option, just "WebM Source", "sd 480p", "low 240p", "low 180p", "low 160p", and "low 120p". Anyone have some other thoughts? Huntster (t @ c) 18:10, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

OTRS for a collection[edit]

Can I release a whole collection of photos under a single OTRS mailing without naming each file? Or do I have to list each image in an email to OTRS? This determines how fast I have to scan a collection of images and where the OTRS ticket notice appears. The OTRS message can appear in the category for the collection, and/or in each image. RAN (talk) 17:28, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

If all files belong in the same category and no other files belong to that category, it is easy. The OTRS agent will use a mass edit tool to add the otrs template to all files. --C.Suthorn (talk) 17:47, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
To my knowledge, you can do so. For example, we have {{BollywoodHungama}} that releases the whole content of the website under one single OTRS ticket, apparently. Besides, the main point is to release it under a free, suitable license. The important thing is the content of the OTRS ticket, it can be about one single image, a collection etc. Ahmadtalk 17:52, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes. Similarly, OTRS can be used to designate a Commons account that you trust to operate on your behalf (but then, of course, you have to live with it if that person goes rogue on you). - Jmabel ! talk 19:20, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Renewal notice and image match as an example[edit]

Can someone provide a link for a renewal notice for an individual photograph that I can add to some boilerplate text. Generally we certify that a renewal notice is absent, but I would like to include a renewal example to show what it looks like. We also need the photograph hosted somewhere online, maybe one hosted by Corbis or Getty. I know it is hard to match a prose description of a photograph to an actual photo, especially when a dozen photographers were present from a dozen news organizations. A Good example if you can match them would be the one discussed by the Library of Congress: "It was discovered that copyrights were placed and renewed on the photographs of the Dionne Quintuplets taken by the [Newspaper Enterprise Association]." Renewal notices are here: http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/cce/ RAN (talk) 18:39, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Photograph of photographers vs. Photographs by photographers[edit]

Do we have a standardized way to categorize "photographs of photographers" vs. "photographs by photographers". In most cases we have both in the same category which confuses a Google image search. Sometimes we set up "Category:Images by John Smith" and sometimes "Category:John Smith studio". Is there a distinction because one may be a solo practice and one may have multiple photographers working for the same studio? RAN (talk) 15:52, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Licenses[edit]

{{PD-scan|PD-EU-no author disclosure}}

This image is in the public domain because it is a mere mechanical scan or photocopy of a public domain original, or – from the available evidence – is so similar to such a scan or photocopy that no copyright protection can be expected to arise. The original itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain
The copyright of this image has expired in the European Union because it was published more than 70 years ago without a public claim of authorship (anonymous or pseudonymous), and no subsequent claim of authorship was made in the 70 years following its first publication.
EU
Dialog-warning.svg
To use this template, the image must meet both of the following two conditions:
  1. published over 70 years ago, and
  2. the original author's actual identity was not publicly disclosed in connection with this image within 70 years following its publication.

Images that lack either of these two conditions should not use this template.

Reasonable evidence must be presented that the author's name (e.g., the original photographer, portrait painter) was not published with a claim of copyright in conjunction with the image within 70 years of its original publication. Works which had not entered Public Domain in their country in 1996 should be marked additionally with {{Not-PD-US-URAA}}.

Note: In some countries anonymous works are copyrighted until 70 years after the death of the author if the author's identity became public in any way during the original term. In Germany this applies to certain works published before July 1, 1995; see Übergangsrecht.

This tag is designed for use where there may be a need to assert that any enhancements (eg brightness, contrast, colour-matching, sharpening) are in themselves insufficiently creative to generate a new copyright. It can be used where it is unknown whether any enhancements have been made, as well as when the enhancements are clear but insufficient. For known raw unenhanced scans you can use an appropriate {{PD-old}} tag instead. For usage, see Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag.

{{PD-US}}

Public domain
This media file is in the public domain in the United States. This applies to U.S. works where the copyright has expired, often because its first publication occurred prior to January 1, 1928, and if not then due to lack of notice or renewal. See this page for further explanation.

{{PD-US-not renewed}} [http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/cce/firstperiod.html Works copyrighted before 1964 had to have the copyright renewed sometime in the 28th year]. If the copyright was not renewed, the work is in the public domain. No renewal notice was found for this periodical for issues published in this year. For instance, the first [http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/cinfo/nytimes New York Times issue renewed was from April 1, 1928]. Some publications may have renewed an individual article from an earlier time. If you find any contrary evidence notify me.

{{PD-Sweden-photo}}

Public domain
This Swedish photograph is in the public domain in Sweden because one of the following applies:
  • The photograph does not reach the Swedish threshold of originality (common for snapshots and journalistic photos) and was created before 1 January 1973 (SFS 1960:729, § 49a).
  • The photograph was published anonymously before 1 January 1953 and the author did not reveal their identity during the following 70 years (SFS 1960:729, § 44).

For photos in the first category created before 1969, also {{PD-1996}} usually applies. For photos in the second category published before 1928, also {{PD-US-expired}} usually applies.

If the photographer died before 1953, {{PD-old-70}} should be used instead of this tag. If the author died before 1926, also {{PD-1996}} usually applies.
