Image:Hristo stoichkov.jpg[edit]

  • Images: Image:Hristo stoichkov.jpg
  • Users involved: User:Imerros, en:User:Gejoro
  • Clues: The image was obviously taken at a press conference, access to such events is usually restrcted to professional photographers. On EN WP en:Image:Hristo stoichkov.jpg is uploaded by Gejoro and tagged PD-Self. On Commons uploaded by Immeros and again tagged PD-Self, no author given, source: the link to EN WP image. The image has dimensions 250x250 which are common for image thumbnails. No EXIF data, of course.
  • Investigation: Sadly, I could not detect it via Google Images despite of the numerous searches. The only 2 contributions of Gejoro are the image upload and adding the link in the article.
  • Conclusion: IMHO, obvious copyvio.

From the official Horsham website. Image is not credited on the site.
Webmaster says the picture is fine for a wikipedia site as it is informative of the town.
