Commons:Deletion requests/File:Canadian Parliament Buildings Ottawa.jpg[edit]

Could you take another look at your !vote here? I believe I know what image you are referring to in thinking the one posted here is a copyvio, but while they are taken from remarkably similar angles and distances, there are a fair number of difference between the two such that I don't believe they are the same image. But perhaps most importantly, the Commons copy predates the blog by three months. If there were a copyvio, I think the blog would have been the one in the wrong. Thanks! Resolute (talk) 20:17, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

My bad. I've commented there. Thanks for noticing. LX (talk, contribs) 20:24, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
S'alright. The angle and distance being almost exact threw me too. I likely would have agreed with you if I hadn't noticed the flag. There must be a sort of observation platform or something nearby. Cheers! Resolute (talk) 03:31, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Thank you tons for your replay and advises on how to get a license. I had no idea how difficult this was. The whole thing was so confusing but you made it so easy and clear. Tons and tons of cheers to you for the help.

Stepojevac (talk) 20:57, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I like kittens. LX (talk, contribs) 21:31, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about that[edit]

Unstoppable Juggernaut
Oops I thought I'd requested administrator right (I find this odd) can you link to an admin request page? (if they exist).
And I don't want to reply on my own User:talk page (all because you had never replied to my previous message when I replied on my own talk page)
Can you also delete Ghost Rider my younger sibling pushed the publish button.

I didn't realise there was anything in that message for me to respond to, but I must admit that I couldn't really make sense of it. You created a subpage of Commons:Administrators/Requests, which is the right place to request administrator privileges, but your request was malformed and incomplete, and I'm sorry, but you don't stand a snowball's chance of becoming an administrator in the foreseeable future given that you have not contributed anything of value to the project, to put things mildly.

I've blocked this user and 3 connected accts, and deleted all the DR'd uploads. Let me know if you see any further socking. INeverCry 20:08, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll keep my eyes open. It never ceases to amaze me how some people have the gall to keep lying until they're blue in the face even after they've been caught red-handed and called out. LX (talk, contribs) 10:13, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Text och bild ur tidning från 1907[edit]

Hej! Såg att du filade på kategorivalför en av mina bilder. Tror du att du kan hjälpa mig rätt i licensdjungeln?

Bilden föreställer ur ett avfotograferat eller inscannat tidningsurklipp från 1907. Jag har i min tur fotograferat av det ur en bok, som anges vid bilden. I USA anses tydligen allt som är publicerat före 1923 vara fritt från upphovsrätt men för svenska förhållanden vet jag verkligen inte. Kanske bilden egentligen inte borde vara på Commons. Vet du var man frågar om sånt här? --Stighammar (talk) 14:04, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Svensk upphovsrätt utgår i huvudsak från när upphovsmannen avlidit, snarare än publicering, vilket ibland kan göra det svårare att verifiera att ett verk är i allmän ägo. Grundregeln är att 70 år ska ha passerat efter det att upphovsmannen avlidit. Om publiceringen skett anonymt, vilket eventuellt kan vara fallet för text och bild i tidningar, räknas det istället från publiceringstillfället (se {{Anonymous-EU}} eller {{PD-EU-no author disclosure}}). Det är inte säkert att publiceringen är anonym bara för att det inte finns någon byline i anslutning till texten eller bilden. Bästa stället för de här typen av frågor på Commons är bybrunnen för upphovsrättsfrågor. Oftast pratas det engelska där, men det går bra med andra språk också. LX (talk, contribs) 14:24, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Tack! Bäst hade varit att ha sett själva tidningen (och inte bara klippet), förstås. Men eftersom det rör sig om en av skandalblaskan Fäderneslandets "peka ut homosexuella"-artiklar (vilket iofs inte ännu var en genre 1907) är risken att skribent eller tecknare valde att stå för alstret med sitt namn ganska liten. Jag ska fundera lite mer, och kika mer på licensmallarna du länkar till. --Stighammar (talk) 11:06, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

New version[edit]

Hi,I'd like to learn how to upload a new version of an existing file. You have already helped somebody with a similar question in Spanish WP on 8 October 2013, but I don't know Spanish and I will be glad if you repeat the procedure for me Thanks. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:58, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't speak Spanish either, but see Commons:FAQ#How can I upload a new version of a file? LX (talk, contribs) 19:05, 29 March 2014 (UTC)


Hi, Why don't you candidate for adminship? I've noticed that you do quite a lot of copyright reviews, so it would useful. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:18, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Yann! I do appreciate the sentiment, but as I've explained at User talk:LX/Archive/2012: January to March#Adminship, User talk:LX/Archive/2012: January to March#Admin? and User talk:LX/Archive/2011: January to March#Admin, adminship is highly problematic for Swedish users given current Commons policies, so regretfully, I'm not interested in being an administrator again. (Stefan4 has also written a more detailed explanation of the problems User talk:Stefan4#Adminship.) Thanks, LX (talk, contribs) 17:34, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I wasn't aware of this situation. Actually, I think Stefan and you are probably the most active copyright reviewers who are not admins, and I've noticed that you are both Swedish, but I thought that it was just a coincidence. Sorry for asking again. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:51, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Not a problem at all. Thanks again, LX (talk, contribs) 17:53, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

I uploaded this logo today and just wanted to make sure this is ok. I wanted to include the watermelon part of the logo but I'm not sure if that has more strict copyrights or not. I know the text logo is sometimes used though and doesn't seem like it would be forbidden to use it appropriately on here.

Here is the source to the logo:

If you can help me more that'd be great. I just figured since you were the only one who answered I could rely on you. Thank you for your help!--Zfigueroa (talk) 00:44, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

That looks fine. I think it's a good idea not to include the watermelon part, because it's going to be very hard for anyone to say for sure that it isn't above the threshold of originality. LX (talk, contribs) 07:18, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
What if you added the watermelon part and added info to the file saying it is a Non-free logo and give a rationale. I'm not sure how to do it but I've seen it on the Fox News logo file.--Zfigueroa (talk) 23:44, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
Non-free "fair use" content is not allowed on Commons. en:File:Fox News Channel.svg is not hosted on Commons, but on English Wikipedia.

Hello, Look [oubasslam], And Bataille de Bougafer--Moussa Kerroum (talk) 12:52, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Considering the giant notice at the top of this page, is there a particularly good reason why you thought it would be a good idea to scatter the discussion from Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Moussa Kerroum to my talk page, which whoever closes the deletion discussion probably won't read? LX (talk, contribs) 13:07, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you wrote a nice guideline for paid editors and I liked your approach (educate them rather than bully them) and wanted to thank you by translating your text into German for a wider audience. But although I clicked on "Deutsch" on the page, the German text replaced the English text rather than offering both. Obviously, the "Deutsch"-link just relates to the template, not to the text under it. I reverted myself - but maybe, if you want a translation, you know how to add it without harming the original text. --Rudolph Buch (talk) 22:53, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done. Thanks for your translation work! The German version is now available at Commons:Guidance for paid editors/de. LX (talk, contribs) 23:18, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Gamla vykort.[edit]

Hejsan! Eftersom du verkar ha rätt bra koll på det här med upphovsrätt så tänkte jag fråga dig om råd innan jag ladder upp bilder den här gången. På engelska Wikipedia håller jag på med en artikel om konstnären John Bauer och jag behöver en bild av John monumentet i Jönköping. Jag har hittat ett par gamla vykort som jag skannat in och kan ladda upp. Det finns inga som helst datum eller fotografnamn på dom och bolagen som anges på baksidan av bilderna finns inte att hitta hos Bolagsverket. Av kvalitén och trycktekniken så gissar jag att dom är från i alla fall före 50-talet, men det går ju inte att vara säker. Hur bör jag göra? Tacksam för råd. - W.carter (talk) 15:53, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Jag kan tänka mig att {{PD-Sweden-photo}} skulle kunna vara aktuellt för fotografierna (det verkar som att i princip alla fotografier anses vara fotografiska bilder och inte fotografiska verk, och då är de i allmän ägo om de är tagna före 1969) och {{FoP-Sweden}} för avbildningen av monumentet. Monumentets upphovsman är Karl Hultström, vilket bör finnas med i beskrivningen. LX (talk, contribs) 16:03, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Tack för hjälpen. :) Och tack för påminnelsen om Karl Hultström, det höll jag helt på att glömma! Det rör ju sig om ett foto av ett annat konstverk. Jag ladder upp dom så får vi väl se om det är någon som har något att invända. Häls! - W.carter (talk) 16:43, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
