Hair 1[edit]

The copyright for this File:Hair 1.jpg and this File:Hair 2.png photo belongs to me because I took the photo. The copyright in the photo belongs to the photographer, not to the person in the photo. By osipov (talk) 21:51, 3 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi By osipov. Thanks for the explanation. I have revived those two images and started a discussion with an explanation of what the situation seems to be and how you can procede. DMacks (talk) 23:17, 3 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello DMacks how can I make sure that an image not violating the copyright. As the source is from a Newspaper and I have given the source and the author of the article. Moreover it is already a content that is 100 years old. I look forward to your help. Utku Öziz (talk) 09:35, 12 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Utku Öziz. The fact that author fr:Georges Vitoux died in 1933 is more significant than the age of the article itself. The main public domain in France seems to be "70+ years after author's death". The concern that originally came to my attenion was that the newspaper isn't published by you originally so you cannot claim to hold copyright on this scan of it. Thanks for letting me know the details so I could look more deeply. I have un-deleted it and updated the license tag. DMacks (talk) 06:19, 13 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello @DMacks I also thank you very much for your concern! I am a bit new in Commons and copyright laws. Also When I publish a picture it automatically says that it is own work. I change them usually after thus I might cause a misunderstanding very sorry about that. I might also ask more questions to you about these topics! I look forward to your help! Do we have like Wikipedia 101 or Wikipedia Commons 101 videos? I will also publish some newspapers in other languages. I look forward to your help in that too! However some Newspapers have parts that we do not know who the authors are. Also, there are some cases where we know the author but we do not know their date of death etc. So for topics like this. Have a great day! Utku Öziz (talk) 10:37, 13 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deletion of File:Tết trồng cây.jpg[edit]

Hello DMacks, I saw that you deleted the file File:Tết trồng cây.jpg on Wiki Media because of "copyright violation", however, the regarded photo was taken 60+ years ago as a set of photos by a government agency in Vietnam, and I believe that it is fully in public domain since the set of photos was published by the government for public usage. The institution you quoted is also not the copyright owner. Could you restore the photo? Faragona (talk) 06:49, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the additional information. I restored it and sent it to a regular deletion-request discussion, where I copied your above comment. You're welcome to add more there, and others might also have thoughts. DMacks (talk) 16:45, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
