Files you uploaded may be deleted[edit]

The files listed below, which you uploaded, have been tagged {{OTRS pending}} for more than 30 days. This tag indicates that an email setting out permission to use the file was sent to the OTRS team. Unfortunately, we cannot find any record that such an email has been received, and accordingly the file remains without permission. Unless the OTRS team receives evidence that permission has been granted within 15 days of today's date, the file will be deleted. If you have already sent the permission, please re-send it to "" now. Please quote the file name in your email. At the same time, please leave a message at the OTRS noticeboard so that a volunteer can follow this up. Alternatively, you can contact an OTRS volunteer directly. Please note that this message is being left by an automated bot, whose operator is not an OTRS volunteer, therefore please do not send this information to me, as it will not save your images from deletion. Thanks for your time! Please help translate this message! HersfoldOTRSBot(talk/opt out) 01:00, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Commercial packaging[edit]

It has to do with Commons:Derivative works and the "copyrightability" of the original packaging. If a given packaging has a simple design with a text logo, it cannot be copyrighted, so it is OK to make photos (derivative work) of it, even without permission. If it has complex designs (such as the ones you are pointing to), the packaging can be copyrighted, and it will be copyrighted unless otherwise expressed by its author(s). Copyrighted material can be uploaded here only if we get a proper permission or the copyright owner publishes it under a free enough license.

The argument "there are other similar images over here" cannot be accepted: maybe those images are not so similar (simple "uncopyrightable" designs vs. complex copyrighted ones), or maybe those images are also affected by the same problem and should be deleted too. Regards. --Dodo (talk) 07:40, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

I know that the argument "there are other similar images over here" cannot be accepted to prevent deletion; I meant to state that as merely an observation and to ask a question. Thanks for your explanation. ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 10:29, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

File:Maid of the Mist IV.jpg[edit]

Hi Kevin,

I noticed that your custom template prevents the new buttons (Download, Use this file, Use this file, Email, Information) to appear. A change like this allows them to appear, but make us loose the special design of the custom template. Not sure what to think of it. --  Docu  at 10:43, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

I see, thanks for pointing that out. The reason why I made the custom template was that I never really liked the standard Information template (though I confess, my custom template isn't anything to gaze at, either). If my custom template prevents the new buttons from appearing, though, I'd be fine with converting all my files' descriptions to the standard Information template. I'll try to get that done sometime today. Thanks, ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 16:49, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

File:Single Blueberry.jpg[edit]

Hi, just wanted to let you know that a photo of yours was used in the Swedish newspaper "Fria Tidningen" to illustrate an article about Thai people travelling to Sweden to pick blueberries: Thuresson (talk) 18:44, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Oh wow, I like how they made the flag :) Thanks for the notification. ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 18:12, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Go On Red[edit]

My band, go on red, would like to use File:LED traffic light on red.jpg and wanted to inform you.

Great! Thanks for letting me know. ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 05:03, 12 December 2011 (UTC)


Hello Kevin, the file that I uploaded doesn't have any copyright violation. I work for Foton Motor and my boss gave me the logo to update the one on Wikipedia. Which kind of document will be necessary to certificate this? Thank you. Shan (talk)

Hi Shan - please take a look at the various tips and notices placed on your talk page. While your boss may have given you the file the upload to the Commons, it most likely does not meet the licensing requirements here on the Commons. Files uploaded here are required to be free - by uploading the file under the CC-BY-SA file you did, you are giving everyone the right to use the logo, for any reason (including commercial), with the only requirement to attribute the creator of the file. Rarely are company logos licensed in such a way, as companies usually want to hold the fully copyright to their own logos.
If you are sure that your company would like to license their logo under the free license you chose, you'll need to send the permission to the Commons using our OTRS. This acts as a record that the file is licensed correctly.
Most likely, though, your company still wishes to retain full copyright of their logo. The best option, then, will be to upload the file to Wikipedia itself under the claim of fair use, not the Commons. The English Wikipedia is able to host non-free files in specific cases where non-free equivalents cannot exist, such as company logos, movie scenes, etc.
If you have any questions or need clarification, feel free to ask. Thanks, ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 20:04, 24 December 2013 (UTC)


Hi Kevin

I am putting a training Manual regarding Manual Handling together and would like to use your image. However I do not understand the commons thing at all and I have repeatedly read it. Therefore sorry for being so cheeky but would you let me know what to re the attribution.

Many Thanks Debbie —Preceding unsigned comment added by Debbie harry (talk • contribs) 20:27, 8 February 2014 (UTC) (UTC)

Hi @Debbie harry: All images on the Commons have (or should have) their licensing information available on their file page. I license my images under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, which basically means you can use my images freely, as long as you release the image under the same (or similar) license, and attribute me. If you could attribute my image as "Kevin Payravi, Wikimedia Commons (CC-BY-SA 3.0)", that'd be fine with me! It doesn't matter to me where you place it -you could place the attribution in the image in vicinity of the image, or in a designated credits section elsewhere. Hope this clears things up! ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 22:13, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi - just because a picture is on Facebook doesn't mean that it is freely licensed. The source of the image must explicitly state the free license the photo is under for it be usable on the Commons. See Commons:Licensing for more info. Thanks, ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 18:24, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Automatronic company[edit]

Hi Kevin,

I would like to know why have you refused the logo of the automatronic company , and how can I get it back ?

Best regards ,

Antoine, —Preceding unsigned comment added by France91100 (talk • contribs) 07:16, 26 June 2014 (UTC) (UTC)

@France91100: Hi there, and sorry for the wait in getting my response! The messages I left on your talk page explain the reason behind the files' deletion. The Wikimedia Commons is a repository of freely licensed media that anyone can be use, for any purpose. Assumingly, the logo you uploaded is copyrighted (if not, we need proof that it is freely licensed). I suggest checking out the links in my messages on your talk page for further info. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Thanks, ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 18:52, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
