File:Apollo 8 Liftoff View (24246227076).jpg[edit]

This image is courtesy of NASA/JPL. So is it public domain and can it be passed or not? Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 10:17, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

I believe it is ok, but NASA is always tricky since they might use contractors. Pinging Revent who has been working with NASA-images a bit, but seems to be on a wiki-break... Josve05a (talk) 13:01, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
@Leoboudv: Sorry for the wikibreak, back-ish. Uploaded the 'official' version of the image, from the JSC archive... higher resolution, slightly wider crop, but better color. From the angle (from the north), this image would be from an automatic camera located near pad 39-B... it would be impossible for an unofficial image of this launch to be taken from this location (the space center boundary is several miles north, across a quite wide lagoon) , and that it was archived by JSC (as S68-56050) means it was an official (i.e. NASA) photo. Revent (talk) 06:47, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
To make it more clear, any unofficial photo from this angle would be from much farther away, and have a distinctly different foreground (a miles wide lake, and probably the other tower (pad 39-A) unless very cropped). The location this was photographed from (based on the position of the tower compared to that of the launch vehicle, and the foreground) would be about 90 degrees NE of the press area, and well within the exclusion zone. The possibility of this not being from either an automatic camera (or more likely, a frame from a television camera, given the quality of the image from the archive) is very minimal, and the official archive gives no other attribution. (the 'owner' of that Flickr) is Kipp Teague, a moderately well-known net dinosaur (see ... while due diligence applies, he's IMO both a pretty reliable source for provenance, and unlikely to have material that is not PD. His own personal photographs are alos impressive. Revent (talk) 07:26, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks Revent for uploading the higher quality image here. The flickr account owner seemed very reliable. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 01:15, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Notification about possible deletion[edit]

Bundle DR:
Commons:Deletion requests/Photos of Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival

This includes a number of photos you uploaded from flickr. Great photos, but sadly US copyright law does not respect freedom of panorama. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 21:22, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

hi, thank you for the message in relation to Genie 4.jpg. Actually i act as Genie's administrator to create her wikipedia page with all the information given by her. But i face the problem of that pic in her page (last pic) whereby i couldnt add text right below her page. Will you be able to assist??


forrestation Forrestation (talk) 09:07, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Forrestation. What is needed to be done is that the copyright owner (most likely the photographer) send Wikimedia Commons' OTRS-team a letter of pemission. Please read en:WP:DONATEIMAGE. Josve05a (talk) 10:11, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi JosveO5a. Thanks. Those photos of Genie Sugene(Genie 1, Genie 2, Genie 3 & Genie 4) were all taken many years back. Doubt can locate back the photographer way back. Since Genie is the owner of these photos and provided to me to upload in her article (created by myself), do i still do a letter of permission to OTR? any waiver or exceptions is allowed in this instance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Forrestation (talk • contribs)
@Forrestation: If you have been give the permssion/copyrught for the images, thne you need to send an email, yes. Josve05a (talk) 19:52, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Degremont, you may have permission to use the image, hoever for the image to be stored on Wikimedia Commons (this site) we must see evidence of such permission/ownership, so we can be sure that you have those rights. Please read Wikipedia:DONATEIMAGE on how to do so. Josve05a (talk) 19:55, 29 January 2016 (UTC)


Don't attack me. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 16:37, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@Gastón Cuello: I'm not attacking anyone, I'm currently processing all past images uloaded from FLickr with the ({{Flickr-public domain mark}} on FLickr, whcih need to be deleted from COmmons, per out licensing policy. Nothing personal against you. Josve05a (talk) 16:39, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
El informe me molesta, porque no me interesa. Tonto. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 16:41, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Nothing I can do about that, it is automatic. Josve05a (talk) 16:43, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Public Domain Mark 1.0-related deletion requests[edit]

Hi Josve05a - rather than put these File:Antrostomus vociferus, Lancaster, Massachusetts 1.jpg, File:Antrostomus vociferus, Lancaster, Massachusetts 2.jpg in for deletion requests, wouldn't it be better to contact the photographer at Flickr, and request that he change the license so they can be kept? I don't understand the complexities of why one form of public domain license is not valid on Commons when others are, so I don't know how to make the request. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 23:23, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Well, there have been discussions about this at many places, bur a new page is beinf written (Commons_talk:Flickr_files#The_PDM_Mark) to clarify such things. I'll try to contact the user as well. Josve05a (talk) 00:40, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Hope you're successful, as those are important pics, the best of this species :-) MPF (talk) 14:38, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Seems like I was successful :) Josve05a (talk) 01:15, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
The current consensus seems different. See Commons:Village_pump/Copyright#We_need_a_clear_end_to_this. It is a discussion opened by you. Then why are you ignoring it and making new DRs? Jee 02:59, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

It does not violate copyright.
