Mass revert[edit]

Explain how the benin files are not copyvios. Dronebogus (talk) 04:30, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Dronebogus: I was just about to post on your talk page. Please see COM:CSD#F3: "This does not apply to photographs taken in a public place." Any COM:FOP-related deletion rationales must go through COM:DR, and are ineligible for speedy deletion. -- King of ♥ 04:32, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Then could you please nominate the files for deletion? Dronebogus (talk) 04:35, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I usually convert ineligible FOP speedies to DR myself with the "Challenge speedy deletion" button if there are just a couple, but this time there were too many for that to be feasible. I recommend that you nominate the images in batches by subject (i.e. group all images showing the same work of art together); you can install VisualFileChange in Preferences -> Gadgets to make it easier. -- King of ♥ 04:41, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Mass revert[edit]

Good day, why do you mass rv my edit is clearly there is no source and not own work can you explain to me. thank you. HurricaneEdgar 05:37, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

{{Copyvio}} requires that there be proof of a copyvio, such as a link to the file appearing on an external website with no free license. In the case of mere suspicion (i.e. "I don't believe that it's own work" or "I don't believe that the file's provenance as described is correct"), the correct template to use is {{No permission since}} or {{No source since}}. -- King of ♥ 05:41, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Possibly free logos[edit]

Thanks for handling those, it didn't even occur to me - will bear it in mind in future. --Lord Belbury (talk) 21:38, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

VRT permission request for User:BelozerskMuseum[edit]

Hi! About this edit. This template was placed there because this account should be verified for further uploading photos taken by museum's stuff. Related permission was sent to the VRT.--BelozerskMuseum (talk) 20:28, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@BelozerskMuseum: That template is for use on images only, to indicate that a VRT permission is incoming and therefore admins should not delete the image. Your userpage is in no danger of deletion, so the template is unnecessary. -- King of ♥ 15:52, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The permission for CPC delcarations[edit]

You said some time ago that I could still seek permission for individual works made by spokesperson for Coalition of Patriots for Change. Could you then confirm this permission for declarations made by Serge Bozanga, who sent this permission for OTRS? Here's a declaration written by him that I uploaded: File:CPCdeclaration.png.

PD-US-no notice related question.[edit]

Hi King of Hearts. Would you mind taking a look at COM:VPC#Copyright status assessment of IMS Vintage Image photo? While this file is likely still protected in the UK and, thus, unacceptable for Commons, I'm wondering if there's a way to upload it locally to English Wikipedia. For example, English Wikipedia does allow some types of content to be uploading locally as PD under licenses such as en:Template:FoP-USonly, en:Template:PD-ineligible-USonly and en:Template:PD-USonly and I'm wondering whether there some way for the same to be done in a case like this. If not, that's OK; I'm just curious. It doesn't seem that either en:Template:PD-US-expired-abroad or en:Template:PD-1996 would be applicable, but I'm curious if there might be another way. I've got no idea who took the photo, where it was taken or when it was taken. Assuming it was first published on August 1, 1977, in the UK and taken by an unknown person, then I guess that means that it won't be PD in the UK until at least 2047-48. -- Marchjuly (talk) 13:34, 1 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Marchjuly: If it wan't published in the US without 30 days of the UK publication, then COM:URAA applies and the work is still copyrighted in the US. -- King of ♥ 23:56, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]


管理員,我想請你幫我看看這個問題。--Kai3952 (talk) 20:18, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

我覺得我說很詳細,而且原因有說是某位用戶說我騷擾,我不明白為什麼拿照片上編輯或分類的問題去問,就被人說騷擾。我通常是看到描述的時間與EXIF顯示不相符,或者拍攝的地點與他添加某某地點的類別是不相符,因此我才會去問,不是那種沒事就找人騷擾,所以我不清楚「我的行為」是怎麼樣給人覺得是騷擾,這需要管理員你幫我解惑,謝謝。--Kai3952 (talk) 20:24, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

File:Nourhane 1922 to 2022.jpg[edit]

Hi King of Hearts. Since you're also an admin on Wikipedia. I thought you'd be a good person to ask about File:Nourhane 1922 to 2022.jpg? The file is most likely related to what's being discussed at en:WP:THQ#uploaded a photograph but it doesn't appear. I'm not sure how a photo like this or the other photos the user wants to upload (if they're essentially the same type) can be treated as anything other than anonymous works with unknown dates of publication or even treated as never published given what little the uploader seems to know about them. Since you can also see the photos uploaded by this user which have already been deleted from both English Wikipedia and Commons so far, perhaps there's something about one of them which might help figure out the copyright status of the rest. FWIW, if these are as described at Teahouse, it could be hard to use them as non-free content per en:WP:NFC#Meeting the previous publication criterion among other things. — Marchjuly (talk) 19:41, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

"It wasn't published. these were photographs Nourhane had commissioned a photographer in the region (cairo, beirut, damascus) to take and was used as a 'carte de visite' so she had a stack and would autograph them to give out to fans." I believe this counts as published, as long as she was handing them out in the US. If the uploader has an original copy, then we'd also be able to see if it had a copyright notice. @Clindberg: Is there anything you might be able to add here? -- King of ♥ 21:38, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for looking at this. Do you know whether any of three countries (Egypt, Lebanon and Syria) mentioned by the OP might also follow COM:PUB in the same way that the US does? Are we back to "never published" if they don't and the photographs weren't given out to fans in the US? -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:07, 12 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'd say cartes de visite count as published. Technically, you would follow the law in each individual country where you want to use a work, and it's always possible the legal history and definitions differ a bit by country. The U.S. is a bit tortured, but if she was giving them out to fans, I don't think there is much argument against them being published. The ownership of copyright... is harder. In many countries at the time, the commissioning party would own the copyright. For example, the UK Copyright Act 1911 (which would have been valid in the British Mandate areas) said: where, in the case of an engraving, photograph, or portrait, the plate or other original was ordered by some other person and was made for valuable consideration in pursuance of that order, then, in the absence of any agreement to the contrary, the person by whom such plate or other original was ordered shall be the first owner of the copyright. Copyright laws these days usually don't do that; copyright stays with the photographer. If you use Syrian law, photos got a very short term of protection in their 2001 law (I think it was 50 years from publication in the 1924 law, which covered the French Mandate areas), so the photo would be PD there, and not subject to the URAA. Lebanon I think pretty much kept the old mandate terms, so a 1950s photograph would have been restored by the URAA for U.S. status. If published in Egypt, then {{PD-Egypt}} would be the one in question. I think she was living in Syria during the 1950s, but I'm not sure. If so, that would be the most likely country of origin for that type of photo, in which case the photo has expired and doesn't need to be licensed, so ownership is moot. But, if licensed, might be best to keep that license around, as well as applying {{PD-Syria}}. The magazine covers also upload are of course not owned by the uploader, so they can't be licensed. If they fall under {{PD-Syria}} then fine, otherwise they are likely still under copyright at least in the U.S. due to the URAA, even if now expired (50 years from publication) in their home countries. Carl Lindberg (talk) 04:08, 12 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]


Hi there. I added these tags for speedy deletion since Fotografía is not covered by the license for an obvious fact: these images were not generated by the Government of Chile (except some attributed to the Presidency and the Zig Zag archive, which actually belong to the State) and they sell these reproductions. These works not covered by the template scope are so because they are mostly donations by private individuals and are under copyright. --with (talk) 15:06, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Bedivere: Often the status is not clear, as we can see from the discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Raúl Sáez Sáez.jpg. There is no rush to delete these images, so why not spend the time to make sure we get it right? -- King of ♥ 18:40, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]


King of ♥, with summary: "No VRTS permission since 12 March 2022", you have deleted the reference file. It's certainly surprising that since that date, despite the [Ticket#202202020810010796], in which the author of lyrics and music of this hymn communicated its public availability, through Wikimedia commons, the VRTS has not been resolved. More surprising to me is that the solution is to simply delete the file.

Please refer to this Ticket and, if there are any problems, form or otherwise, let the author know via e-mail and this way, so that I can help him to solve the problems. Thanks, --Galopax (talk) 10:30, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Galopax: I've searched the VRTS database, and that ticket number does not appear to exist. -- King of ♥ 16:23, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
