File:Cathedral Cove (Coromandel).jpg[edit]

Hi, It is possible you could check the original German upload of this image to ensure that it was correctly released at upload time? The uploader is claiming he has now sold the image with all the copyrights, and is hinting that the cc license comes from the person who moved it to commons. See Ticket:2019032410000495. Thanks.

Hi Ronhjones, this file was originally uploaded by Rabenlust on 2 August 2006 at 22:33 as de:Datei:NZ 2004 04 CathedralCove31.JPG with following text:

|Description= Cathedral Cove (Neuseeland) - Blick durch Höhle auf zweite Bay
|Date= 2004
|Author= Andreas Schmiedel
|Permission= Ich, als der Urheber dieses Bildes, veröffentliche es unter der GNU-FDL

At Permission, the uploader wrote “Ich, als der Urheber dieses Bildes, veröffentliche es unter der GNU-FDL” which can be translated to: “Me, the copyright holder of this picture, publish it under the terms of the GNU-FDL”. This is an obvious reference to {{GFDL}}. As this upload meets the relicensing criteria, it can be licensed under the terms of {{cc-by-sa-3.0}}. The GFDL is quite clear in its first paragraph about its perpetuity: “Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein.” Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 06:49, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for that. It clears up any ambiguity. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:02, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hi, I have a question: can I upload to Commons a screen shot of an Italian singer during a 1977 Rai TV show? Thank you. --CoolJazz5 (talk) 19:24, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi CoolJazz5, most works created in Italy are copyrighted until 70 years have passed since the death of the author. While the copyright of “simple photographs” may expire after 20 years, it is hard to be sure about that. I am not familiar with Italian case law in this regard but film stills can still be considered as works of art. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Italy for more infos. BTW, File:Franco Cerri quintet 1973.jpg is unlikely to be your own work as claimed – please fix this. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 20:58, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Hi AFBorchert, thanks for the answer. As soon as I find the higher resolution version, the load will replace the current one. Regards, --CoolJazz5 (talk) 23:49, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Hi CoolJazz5, this still does not make it your own work. Or do you claim to have taken this photo yourself in 1973? From where did you get this photo? Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 05:47, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Hi AFBorchert, the photo was taken by me in Codroipo (Udine) during a concert of the Franco Cerri quintet in October 1973. The file was then digitized with a digital camera and slightly modified. Age allowed me to be there. Regards, --CoolJazz5 (talk) 12:41, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
P.S: The file I asked you about for a possible upload to Commons, was accepted in the WP-it and placed in the category: Screenshot copyrighted television. --CoolJazz5 (talk) 13:27, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Hi CoolJazz5, thank you for clarifying this. Regarding the other upload: Please consider that WMF projects other than Wikimedia Commons are in some cases allowed to upload non-free media per the exemption doctrine policy (EDP). The policy for is summarized at WP:EDP. Such files must not be transfered to Wikimedia Commons. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 10:56, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Hi AFBorchert, many thanks for the explanations. Regards, --CoolJazz5 (talk) 00:08, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
