Aaero images[edit]

Hi. You’ve removed screenshots and box art from Aaero’s page. These were used with permission. (I own the rights myself). Could you reinstate them please?

Thank you.

Could you please be more specific about files? You don't have deleted contributions.
Regular procedure for such cases is to send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review and file undeletion.

Deletion Request / File Ron Galperin.jpg[edit]

I'm not sure why I received a deletion request. Even though the photo is found in Google search, this image is owned by the user?

Ron Galperin (talk) 18:41, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

You could upload image in original resolution with EXIF to proof your authorship. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:48, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Deletion requests/File:Hidenobu Nishimura.jpg[edit]

I replace this image to the one with high resolution and EXIF. Cloud you dismiss your deletion request?

Deletion of File:Alarashi Salah FlagUp.jpg and File:AbdulKarim Abdullah Al-Arashi.jpg[edit]

I have added a link to the permission for the File:Alarashi Salah FlagUp.jpg which was released by Aden news agency in 1990-05-22 - Under Yemeni law, all files released by media that are over 2 years old, automatically fall under the Creative Common license (هذه الصورة إنتجت في اليمن وهي الآن ملكية عامة حيث أن حقوق النشر الخاصة بها قد انتهت حسب القانون اليمني - بث إذاعي صحفي أنتج منذ أكثر من عامين)

A declaration of consent has been sent to for the file AbdulKarim Abdullah Al-Arashi.jpg

Thank you very much for understanding.

Looks like you are mistaken. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Yemen. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:58, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
the picture is older than 10 years, 18 years to be exact which makes it legal to use (according to the link you attached). Besides that, I did link the permission to use the photo from Aden news agency upload in the

Arabic wiki.

You need to fix license, description and provide verifiable source for this photo. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:52, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

The declaration of consent for the file AbdulKarim Abdullah Al-Arashi.jpg has been resent - the picture was taken personally by a relative of mine whom I got to send the declaration of consent.

Please ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:52, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Possible Deletion[edit]

You seem to have a problem with a photograph I took of Donald Prell way back in 1946. Please do not delete and contact me if you still have a problem.

Deletion of Calf Studio Gear Logo.svg[edit]

What's the reason for this? Since I'm the creator of the file how can it be a copyright violation? --Drewbowls (talk) 12:19, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

Please confirm your authorship/copyrights ownership via Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review and file undeletion. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:02, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
Commons:OTRS#When_contacting_OTRS_is_unnecessary states contacting OTRS is not necessary in such cases unless there's some other reason [the] authorship may be doubted (since I don't think anyone would rate this ordinary logo of "outstanding quality"). It's this reason I'd like to know.--Drewbowls (talk) 19:03, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
It's not easy to tell about authorship in many cases. A lot of users upload non-trivial logos (see {{PD-textlogo}}) of sport clubs, educational institutions, etc. as own works. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:22, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. Since the volunteers will also not be able to prove the authorship reliably I think it's not worth the hassle for all people involved. It was just about illustrating a Wikipedia article so nothing serious I should invest any more time in. --Drewbowls (talk) 12:37, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Creative Commons licenses didn't exist in 1930s. Is it anonymous work or photographer is known? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:27, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Both are anonymous. "File:Kırklarelili-Yöneticiler.jpg" is on a manucipality web page. "File:Edirne Belediye meclisi üyeleri 1930.jpg" is in my collcetion.

What was the reason for bringing up OTRS? Is this something we should do for every newbie uploading audio and video files? —Dispenser (talk) 15:42, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:A Barber's (Hair Cutter's) shop.pdf[edit]

Hello, I just want to notify you that, while I closed the DR as deleted, it still remain this file, I'm neutral on this case. It is borderline De minimis because the photo could maybe, maybe not, have been taken without the posters. I closed the DR as deleted because it was an unuseful PDF file but I obviously did not answer your nomination rationale. Feel free to nominate also this file for deletion, if you wish it. No problem.

How to get pictures[edit]

If you meant files which I nominated for deletion, they need to have proper source: author(s)/date and place of publication. They may be in public domain, but proper sources were not provided. Also proper public domain tag should be used as license. See also Commons:Copyright rules by territory. Files could be undeleted if you are willing to investigate these matters. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:34, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't know German :-( Both sites contain modern photos, which are copyrighted by default, unless somebody released them under terms of free license. You need to find site’s terms of use to clarify this. First page contains historical photo, but it doesn't seems to have source information. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:20, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Now, you can participate in a survey that helps us understand and prioritize which tools and functionalities are most important for the Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata communities. The survey runs until December 22. Here's some background.
  2. Help the team decide on better names for 'captions' and 'descriptions'. You can provide input until January 3, 2018.
  3. Help collect interesting Commons files, to prepare for the data modelling challenges ahead! Continuous input is welcome there.

File:Perjalanan Hidup Saya.djvu & File:Perjalanan Hidup Saya.pdf[edit]

I've already dealt with this on JuTa's talk page.

I'm the grandson of the author and his sons (my father and uncle) had uploaded the file on his website for years without legal reprecussions after he passed away. I'm not able to contact the publisher, their website and email address don't seem to exist anymore. That leaves the oldest child of the author to hold copyright ownership of the work, who has been releasing the book for free (without any license) on his website.

Dear EugeneZelenko, why are my uploads deleted?

Actually, it was used in the list of best uploaded files, which should give the idea that it was not crap... you have millions of old unused file and you start with a file that actually has content, welcoming this way an uploader who knows a specific field? About the svg format, the fact that a file is better in svg does not mean this is a reason for deletion per se... actually how can anyone put in svg if you remove it? Please link to me when this rule is written this way... I support good graphics but I also support good sense.--Alexmar983 (talk) 05:45, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

New upload of the sample file, of the song: Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up[edit]


Please pay attention that a NEW AND ORIGINAL SELF MADE sample of the song: "Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up" has been uploaded to the Hebrew article of Youtube.

This new file has nothing in common with any sample of this song, found in any English Wikipedia's article, nor any other language Wikipedia.

Therefore, the new uploaded file doesn't violate any copyrights now, since its content and characteristics are completely different.

This is the link to the new uploaded file:

This is Youtube's Hebrew article:

I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused because of the previous uploaded file, "Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up1.ogg", which was intended to be deleted, finally removed by me.

Deletion Request[edit]

Wondering why my photos are being charged with copyright if they are my own photos. I am not using them for promotion but rather writing a wiki article about a company. I uploaded many of these photos a while ago and their wasn't a problem then. Why is their a problem now? Hoping we can get this figured out! Had a problem with being to promotional before. I'm trying harder now and being more careful with the writing. Again, hope we can solve this!

Structured Commons - Design feedback request: Multilingual Captions[edit]

Hello! You are receiving this message because you signed up for the the community focus group for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons.

The Structured Data on Commons team has a new design feedback request up for Multilingual Captions support in the Upload Wizard. Visit the page for more information about the potential designs. Discussion and feedback is welcome there.

On a personal note, you'll see me posting many of these communications going forward for the Structured Data project, as SandraF transitions into working on the GLAM side of things for Structured Data on Commons full time. For the past six months she's been splitting time between the two roles (GLAM and Community Liaison). I'm looking forward to working with you all again. Thank you, happy editing.

Deletion of my photos[edit]

EugeneZelenko, you would like to delete my photos/scans. Please let me know what is wrong with them.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Armenius vambery (talk • contribs) 15:48, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Reasons were specified in deletion requests.
  • Documents and historical photos are not your own work. However, official documents are exempted from copyrights in ex-USSR. See {{PD-RU-exempt}} as example.
  • See Commons:Freedom of panorama#Ukraine for problem with monuments and memorial plates.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:52, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

OK monuments and historical plates I understand. But the official documents and photos are of my relatives. Whom should I ask for permission?

See above and below for situation with documents. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:08, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

I have changed the images tags for docs. I understand the policy for images of public places and plates and agree that they should be deleted. What about this group photo of students in 1935? Who should give the permission? Armenius vambery (talk) 16:45, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

I think {{PD-RU-exempt}} is more appropriate for commons USSR documents like that for medals, since Russia is heir for USSR. Please mention that photographer is unknown, so work may be treated as anonymous. You could use {{PD-Ukraine}} there. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:19, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

EugeneZelenko, did you even read the discussion page for the file? I explained very thoroughly why it should be kept and meets the free use clauses in the local English wikipedia. You deleted the file without an explanation. How come this file was deleted when other files exactly like it, like this:, and this:, are kept? Airgum (talk) 00:54, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Image to investigate[edit]

EugeneZelenko, you have recently marked my images for deletion. It was a right thing to do. Could you please take a look at this image and let me know if it has sufficient rights to be used? My understanding is that the author does not have the rights, the image is not in public domain, the image is not used by the same page in any other languages.!_1943.jpg Should it be deleted? if yes how?--Armenius vambery (talk) 10:52, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

This image is uploaded to Russian Wikipedia. Sorry, I don't know files deletion process there, but w:ru:Википедия:К удалению is used for articles. As for file itself, it claimed to be in public domain because of age as anonymous work. If you could find information about author(s) which died less then 70 years ago (see Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Germany). --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:17, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

This set of files come from archive (Bundesarchiv), and this explain difference in copyrights tag. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:12, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

The file came from Germany, but not from Bundesarchive. The source is indicated as Livejournal page, now not in use. Also it is not used by any German language page. --Armenius vambery (talk) 18:10, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

LiveJournal is definetely not primary source. If you doubt that this file is in public domain, you need to try to find information about poster author or probably photographer whose photo was used to create poster. If this person died less then 70 years ago, poster is not in public domain. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:16, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Missing source?[edit]

Hi. I'm wondering why you tagged this image as "missing essential source information". - Takeaway (talk) 15:46, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Seems to be promo/press photo of supposedly notable cat. No EXIF, small resolution. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:49, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
I tried looking for it online but couldn't find any other instance of it. It could indeed be a copyvio of some unidentified image from elsewhere, or it might be a low res image of the uploader's own cat. In any case, the uploader seems to be trying to pass off this cat in a hoax article as if it were the royal cat of Buckingham Palace (see this draft). Is the "missing essential source information" tag when there is actually a source indicated (even though it may also be a hoax) the correct tag for this image? - Takeaway (talk) 16:15, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Quick reply[edit]

Re: your comment here, I have no idea how to do any of that stuff on Commons (my main work here is on cross-wiki copyvio issues), so I'm afraid I'm not much help. If you check my contributions, however, you can see I've fixed the sourcing to comply with Commons basic policy for inclusion for all the uploads by this user. Sorry to create more work for you if more work needs to be done, but I just was focused on saving them from deletion at this point. Also, you'll probably want to move File:O With Thy Benediction.ogg to something such as File:Thaxted (Holst) or something similar, as it's a tune that is use for many songs.

Art import from Flickr[edit]

Files descriptions looks completely useless, since titles of works are absent. It's much better to use Creator templates. And Flickr use could not be an author of art itself.

It'll be reasonable to request bot operators assistance to fix descriptions of already uploaded files.

EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:33, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour, je sais bien que la description est inutile et que ces fichiers sont très mal nommés. Cependant, cela offre la possibilité d'avoir un grand nombre d'oeuvres sur Commons. Je suis confiant en l'avenir et petit à petit, des contributeurs ajouteront des descriptions précises de ces peintures. Bonne fin de journée. --Thesupermat2 (talk) 15:49, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

If you don't mind me butting in, Thesupermat2 is basically saying that they realize the descriptions are useless, but that they feel it's a good opportunity to move this artwork to the Commons and that little by little, contributors here will deal with the lack of titles and whatnot. So, no... I don't think they plan on dealing with duplicates. ALH (talk) 21:13, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

If only a part of all this signs could be transferred ... uuuhhh that would be fine. The correction of the descriptions could be a part for me to handle it. Best --Tom (talk) 15:49, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

I am not able to vectorize. Sorry i am so poor in knowlege. I do a screenshot and save the pic ... sorry not to be state of the art. Very sorry. BTW the signs do not need to be with very high quality. Why ??? As original they were used to stamp in metall with a size of approx. 3x3 milimeters. Modern use is done with laser engraving. See samples. So it would be fine to have some more of the signs in commons. Best --Tom (talk) 16:16, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

On the legal side of view, it would not be a good idea to deliver samples which are good enough to be used for fake-markings. no no ... no good idea ;-) The signs are public to enable people recognizing the signs. not more. the enzyclopaedic use in articles can be as there: en:Proof_test#Proof_marks ir de:Beschussprüfung#Rechtsnormen_und_nationale_Regelungen .

Possible deletion of image file Gordon John Watson[edit]

G'day. I've been warned that this file may get deleted which I think is a bit over the top. It is a photograph which has been in my family since 1937 and I own it and all rights to its use. If you need me to make changes to the file information in order to prevent it from being deleted, I will need some assistance with how to do that. Any help would be appreciated. All the best. TheRealWatto (talk) 02:29, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Owning physical copy doesn't make you copyrights owner. You need to find out information about photographer. If photographer unknown it may be in public domain. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Australia, it it's applicable. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:18, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Windows Mobile 6.1.4 Professional emulator.png and File:Windows 3.1 boot screen.png[edit]

Hello, This photo was removed for my benefit. This one photo to see is good. The other one to see boot screen. So this one photo deleted but unfortunately can not be seen and can not upload again because re-install my laptop and the other photo can not be published. What is the reason of the one and the other photo being deleted ?.

Dear Eugene, Although I did everything that was requested, notably having a release (using the supplied template) sent from the artist authorising use of all images, the images have been deleted. This is very upsetting. You gave me eight days to comply, I did so, the artist sent her release to the address supplied, and then I contacted them (OTRS I believe) as you advised. and was told it would be a 49-day wait. Why give eight days when on Wikimedia's side the action or response takes much longer? Please tell me what can now be done. --Michedomi (talk) 22:06, 23 March 2018 (UTC)--Michedomi (talk) 22:35, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Did you ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review as I recommended on deletion request? If not, please do this now. Files could be undeleted if permission is OK. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:19, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Lucio Balestrieri books and pic[edit]

Hi Eugene, I'm Carlo Balestrieri, son of the late Lucio, an historian and economist. I'd like to diffuse his work with my mum and my sister. That's why I'm in the process of creating a page in Wikipedia snd attache a picture of him and I've uploaded his two books on Wikisource.

I'm new to Wikipedia world and I'm not sure exactly what to do.

I saw your notification for possible deletion and I'w writing to do as much as I can to avoid it. The items we are talking about are: File:Veneto. Questioni di Storia della Società Veneta e dell’Economia Padana dalle Origini ad Oggi.pdf File:Venezia presente e passato. Per una interpretazione ideologica della storia.pdf File:Lucio1963.jpg

The books are free to be used and copied as long as the author is acknowledged. The picture is a privately taken picture and it's ok for public decent use. When I uploaded them, I selected the most recent copyright licence which sounded

Please let me know of anything I can do to publish them on wiki.

BTW I can't even figure out how o publish the page on Lucio which I have drafted on my sandbox on 18 March. Could you please advise?

Thank you

If I understood correctly, you father died. Who did inherited his works (copyrights)? Such person(s) should send permission to Commons:OTRS (example: Commons:Email templates). Then you could ask help on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard with permission review.
Who is photographer? If it was made in Italy, {{PD-Italy}} may be applicable. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Italy.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:07, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Eugene, thanks for your feedbacks. I have now proceeded with emailing for OTRS Licensing, also put {{OTRS pending}} on both books files description. Also put {{PD-1996}} on my dad's picture. Finally I also confirmed my email address. Can you please advise if I can now publish my father page (countainig links to the above files) which is sitting in my sandbox? Thank you. CarloBalestrieri

I'm not sure that {{PD-1996}} is necessary, photo looks OK for now as it is. Please don't forget to ask for assistance on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 04:33, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Eugene, be patient with me but I'm still unsure on what I'm supposed to do to publish the page about my father that is in my sandbox. I can't find the drop down menu that the help page says it's supposed to appear to move the page. Should I remove there references to the books while I wait for the License to come through? Please advise. Thanks --CarloBalestrieri

Frankly I don't know process in Italian Wikipedia :-( If there no formal draft reviews, you could just move page to main namespace. May be your account is still treated as newbie, so you don't have move rights? If so you could ask to do this local administrator. Or just create page in main namespace and copy content there.
I don't think that books should be part of biographical article. You could create category for your father on Commons and put photo and books there and then add link in article or Wikidata. Later is preferable.

Request to contact STL viewer developers[edit]

Hi Eugene,

I note that you maintain a list of STL models uploaded every day. Thanks for doing that; it lets me see what new models people upload!

As you're likely more involved in the 3D initiative than I am, I wonder if you could point me to the relevant person(s) about a possible bug in the Wikimedia model viewer. I'd posted the following on the Computer help-desk but didn't get any replies:

I created a few STL files below and found that artifacts appear in the Wikimedia viewer and occasionally the thumbnail. I've checked that the direction of facet vertices is anticlockwise, the normals are sensible and polygons are not duplicated. It seems to happen more where the polyhedron is thin. All these polyhedra render correctly on . Would anyone know how to fix these artifacts?

cmɢʟee ⋅τaʟκ 15:06, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Actually lists are created by User:OgreBot, I'm only requested to create such reports, by analogy with other similar reports.
Since STL viewer is part of MediaWiki, I think is proper place to report its problems.

File:Anne Hillerman - Spider Woman's Daughter (2013).jpg[edit]

Please help refresh my memory, because I do a lot of edits on Wikipedia and to a lesser extent Commons. I don't do a lot of uploading on Commons. On File:Anne Hillerman - Spider Woman's Daughter (2013).jpg, apparently you deleted this. I created the article but can't remember if I'm the one who uploaded the file. If I did, it should never been on Commons, but as a non-free use rationale (only) as a book cover on Wikipedia. I don't see this as one of my uploads. Can you clarify if someone else uploaded it? Would I be safe loading it on Wikipedia only under the non-free use rationale as a book cover? Thanks for your help. Maile66 (talk) 14:34, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Предупреждение о возможном удалении[edit]

Здравствуйте! Получил от Вас значок на все мои загруженные файлы из своего архива и отдельно на файл File:Леонид Вербицкий.jpg. Просьба объяснить, что я сделал не так и можно ли что-то исправить, чтобы не было предупреждений. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 10:33, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Надо найти информацию о фотографах или хотя бы о дате съёмки. Официальные документы могут быть в общественном достоянии. Для файлов в общественном достоянии надо изменить лицензии. Смотрите также w:ru:Авторское право в России и Commons:Copyright rules by territory#Russia and former Soviet Union. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:21, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
Спасибо за разъяснение, в самое ближайшее время подправлю лицензии, добавлю описание и время съёмки фото. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 06:38, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

EugeneZelenko, подскажите, а будет ли достаточно устного разрешения от автора, создавшего памятник Леониду Вербицкому, на размещение фото File:Леонид Вербицкий.jpg, с указанием его имени и фамилии.

P.S. Все остальные фото подправил. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 10:25, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Нет. Разрешение надо оформить разрешение через Commons:OTRS (пример: Commons:Email templates). Для ускорения обработки разрешения и восстановления файла надо обратиться на Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard. Кстати, на памятнике использовалась фотография. Вряд ли её сделал скульптор. Надо ещё разрешение от фотографа.
В некоторых фотографии до сих пор шаблоны собственной работы и современные лицензии.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:17, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

EugeneZelenko, да, на некоторых фотографиях мои работы, их делал лично я. Подскажите, почему их удалили? И, подскажите, почему удали ВСЕ загруженные мной фото, т.е я подправил ВСЁ неправильно? --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 17:36, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Закрывал запрос администратор, не знающий русского языка. Как я уже писал, оставались проблемы с фотографиями.

Commons не может содержать файлов на условиях добросовестного использования. Смотрите Commons:Лицензирование.
В этом конкретном случае фотография может быть общественном достоянии по возрасту: анонимное произведение (если фотографа установить невозможно), созданное более 70 лет назад. Смотрите {{PD-Russia}} и {{PD-Ukraine}}, но желательно хотя бы приблизительно установить страну съёмки (на текущий момент).

можно удалить. Размещу их в национальных Википедиях на условиях добросовестного использования. Просто не знал, что так возможно. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 16:07, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

Сделано. Пока оставил File:Поздняков Лев Григорьевич 5.jpg ({{PD-text}}), но лучше было бы попробовать поискать в,, других библиотеках и добавить в статью, чтобы было более солидно.
Мне восстанавливать другие файлы, хотя бы официальные документы?
EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:17, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Да, Евгений, все другие, если можно, восстановите. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 14:33, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Сделано, вроде бы ничего не забыл. С File:Анкета 1924г. 3.jpg была проблема на уровне файловой системы. Из исторических документов/фотографий надо убрать собственную работу и свой авторство. Но можно оставить пометку о личном сканировании/перефотографировании. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:48, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Спасибо! А там ещё осталось восстановить

А фото File:Iван Дем'янович Шевченко.jpg можно удалить - есть двойник на русском и фото File:Стародубов Кирилл Фёдорович.jpg тоже удалить, не подобрал соответствующую лицензию. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 15:15, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Я подправил предложенную Вами лицензию на файл File:Поздняков Лев Григорьевич 5.jpg и добавил адрес источника скрина. Тоже самое сделаю и для фото File:Поздняков Лев Григорьевич 4.jpg и File:Поздняков Лев Григорьевич 3.jpg, восстановите их, пожалуйста. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 13:34, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Сделано. Отсканированные статьи лучше загрузить заново, оставив только скписок источников, т. к. сами статьи - объект авторского права. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:06, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Евгений, насколько я помню, на фото File:Поздняков Лев Григорьевич 4.jpg и File:Поздняков Лев Григорьевич 3.jpg только список литературы Позднякова, а не статьи. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 14:55, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Удалённые файлы фото[edit]

Евгений, не могли бы Вы восстановить удалённые файлы фото - обсуждение здесь [1]

Я тогда не знал и мне не объяснили по какой причине удалили, но по Вашему разъяснению в теме [2] я понял, что необходимо изменить лицензию на {{PD-Russia}} и как это сделано в File:Правда 18.11.1940s.png. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 10:17, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Не могу утверждать точно, но, касколько понимаю, газеты - коллективная работа, соответственно в общественно достояние переходят после смерти последнего из авторов. Трудно сказать, как было в те времена, но в 1980-х в газетах указывались фамилии журналистов/фотографов/карикатуристов. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:50, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Но ведь я выкладываю фото только первых полос газеты Правда и Известия, на них нет никаких журналистов/фотографов/карикатуристов, а только постановления Сталина и Калинина. Газета 1943 года, на последней полосе газеты написано: Редакционная коллегия. На других полосах есть военные корреспонденты с фамилиями, но я их не размещаю. А как быть с File:Правда 18.11.1940s.png, тоже удалять? Думаю, что это неправильно. --Сергей Поздняков 1955 (talk) 14:25, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

После войны была расформирована. File:Smolenski.jpg; File:Kvachanteridze01.jpg из личного архива. Я буду Вам очень признателен если Вы сможете мне помочь!

В случае File:VNV.N124.26.05.1944.1.jpg надо пытаться искать информацию о датах жизни автора письма. В случае File:S.K.D.PORTRET.2.jpg был ли указан художник? Для фотографий надо знать хотя бы приблизительные даты создания, ели фотографа(ов) установить невозможно. Также надо знать о стране(ах), релевантных для каждой работы. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:00, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
- Уважаемый EugeneZelenko, По поводу File:VNV.N124.26.05.1944.1.jpg автор, сержант Смоленский Кузьма Данилович 1906-1971г. Письмо написано в редакцию фронтовой газеты Калининского фронта "Вперед на врага" и опубликовано 26 мая 1944 г. По поводу File:S.K.D.PORTRET.2.jpg, да есть имя художника Павел Петрович Шмелёв (1900-1958), штатный художник фронтовой газеты Калининского фронта "Вперед на врага" с 1943 г. по 1946 г. Работал по заданию редакции, все права на работы в этот период принадлежали редакции. В редакции так же был штатный фотограф С. Баранов, о нём ни чего не известно. Все фото для газеты были сделаны им в период 1943-1945 гг. Все права на фото, так же были у редакции. Все эти работы были сделаны в стране СССР (Союз Советских Социалистических республик. Страна не существует с 1991 г. Помогите разобраться с этим. Со своей стороны тоже буду делать все возможное. Ff1213 (talk) 17:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
РФ - правопреемница СССР. В РФ - ретроактивный закон об авторском праве, т. е. все изменения касаются и ранее сделанных работ. Срок действия авторских прав - 70 лет после смерти автора + продление для участников Великой Отечественной войны и репрессированных. Смотрите w:ru:Авторское право в России. Так что как минимум две работы в общественной достояние не перешли. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 17:01, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Спасибо. "Авторское право на произведение, созданное в порядке выполнения служебных обязанностей или служебного задания работодателя (служебное произведение), принадлежит автору служебного произведения. Закон предусматривает, однако, автоматическую передачу имущественных прав работодателю, если не доказано обратное."w:ru:Авторское право в России. Художники, фотографы и корреспонденты были работниками газеты, и все их работы были выполнением служебных обязанностей. Работодателем выступала редакция газеты. Таким образом все авторские права принадлежали газете. Она была расформирована в 1946 г., прошло более 72 лет. Как поступить в данной ситуации?Ff1213
Письмо вряд ли было написано в рамках задания. Про рисунок сказать сложнее. Я бы исходил из более консервативного варианта, т. е. авторские права принадлежат авторам. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 17:40, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for having a closer look on

152-94 Zeugnis Wilhelm2.pdf


The File was delivered to me out of the collections of Hessisches Staatsarchiv Marburg. It is a historic school certificate, so it doesnt's have a proper author. Any primary copyright or personal right is longtime expired. The file is the basis for a little project] by a students group at Marburg University. I am the teacher in charge. The file was handed to me by the archive together with an explicite persimission to use it for wikicommons/wikisource. I thank you for being so careful concerning copyrights. If there ist anything we ca improce, so please let me know.Jürgen Nemitz (HSP) (talk) 17:59, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

It may be public domain because it's state document or because of age. See Commons:Copyright rules by territory. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:20, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
Yes I know, that the proper document itself is public domain, but we should take in consideration that the photographer may own a right concerning the reproduction work he has done. I just wanted to be careful. So I mentioned, that the reproduction was done in Hessisches Staatsarchiv Marburg. I have adressed the archive via email before the upload was done and they allowed me to use the document in Commons as long as the shelf mark (Staatsarchiv Marburg Best. 152, Nr.94) is mentioned. So I would ask you kindly to remove the deletion request. Jürgen Nemitz (HSP) (talk) 08:50, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
You could just add their mar into description. Scanning doesn't add authorship, so Creative Commons license is incorrect. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 18:18, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
In my my humble opinion the picture was not necessarily produced by scanning. It might be a photographer's work as well as this is often done in archives as a method that is more adequate in respect of preserving historic documents. You can't tell. I really don't see the problem to give credit to the demands of the donating institution. They permit us to use it anyhow as long as the institution and the shelf mark are mentioned. The shelf mark is already metioned. If I declare the document als public domain it might be used outside commons without mentioning the origin, which ist not fair I think.
