File:Early 20th Century Inuit parka (UBC).jpg[edit]

What the museum says is one thing, the other ist, naturally summer skins are not thick as in winter. And the picture shows, these are very flat skins.--Kürschner (talk)

The best skin quality is in autumn and the beginning winter. Former we used the skins of young caribous, called pyshiks or pijiki (4-6 month or till one year old (called nebljujs)). This suit looks like young pijiki with skin from adult animal at the hood. Furs from elder raindeers are not for hard wear (if your English is better than mine, you should write it in the article. The mention of source I will put to it). --Kürschner (talk) 06:30, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
(you could answer here) That should be okay. I only know the skins of adult winter raindeers. The summer skin is short with compact underwool. My very best book for this describes the hair-length of each furred animal exactly - but not from caribous. I could look in much of my other literature, but I think, this should be ok (but nevertheless, it looks for me more like skins from young caribou calves... ;-) - Next holiday in Vanvouver.) --Kürschner (talk) 07:27, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Dear me: winter hair: on the sides 5 cm, back 9 cm, cross 10 cm., neck till 30 cm. The book is good, but the reader... --Kürschner (talk) 07:50, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
  • I think the additional commentary by you is sufficient for the parka's description. Most people don't care too much about the exact thickness or thinness of the caribou skin, so don't worry. They just want to know what material the parka is made of. And if it is made of 2 layers--as the UBC museum description says--then this is an added bonus. There are many many displays in the museum and I almost missed the parka which is placed in a large glass panel case. But I am glad I took the picture of the parka...and hope someone can use it for a good cause. Best regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:13, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: Flickr review requests[edit]

Hello. To be fair I was not aware that the flickr upload tool I used was enough. My confusion actually stemmed from the fact that in the upload information, I was listed as the reviewer. As I'm not an admin or anyone of authority here, I wanted to make extra sure. Perhaps I should have asked at the help desk. I don't see the need of that discussion though, as a message would have done fine. So "i got the message" like you said. ;) As the the admin noted, I actually did stop when I saw his edit summary as then I realised I had been to cautious over any changes that the original author could have made on their account. Well, thanks for letting me know though. Have a nice evening too.Raintheone (talk) 20:54, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Change the license[edit]

Hello Leoboudv. What happened to that user from Flickr, the images were yesterday under license (cc-by-2.0). and now, change the license. --MyCanon (talk) 09:41, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

This file, which was originally posted to Indafotó, was reviewed on by reviewer Lymantria, who confirmed that it was available there under the stated license on that date.

Hi Leoboudv. Thanks. Good images! Best Regards, --JMCC1 (talk) 00:59, 25 February 2013 (UTC) Ok. Thank you for the message.,, and[edit]

Hello Leoboudv, we once resolved a copyright ownership issue who owns the copyright of a CFC celebrity events photo posted on their flickr account (the organization or photography group), but also I'm concerned that many other celebrity parties/events (held by many organizations/corporations like CFC) flickr images taken by hired photography group(s) are vulnerable to potential deletion requests like the DR. Recently I found three similar cases of the issue,,, and first and second cases are mostly same with File:Robert_Lantos.jpg case whose image descriptions mention the photographer(s) of the images (Rebecca Sapp, @francois). in last case, its image description does not mention the photographer(s), but EXIF data says Dianna Bonner/ Can this three images also be counted as the organizations paid photography firm(s) for its services and own the image rights and/or may we need to ask the flickr accounts about copyright ownership of the images indivisually? --Puramyun31 (talk) 17:40, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

OTRS waiting list and 1-2 other issues[edit]

Hi. I wonder why you not answer my long post, but now I've realized, that it seemed it was not saved...!!?!?!

In short: at first I thought your post were unfair critic - but the second reading showed me it wasn't so I didn't think so :). But I'm not an Egyptologist, so I'm not the right person depending your other points with the Flickr images. But I'm planning an international Network of Wikimedia Archaeologists - and hopefully in future we can work over all Wikis depending these Questions. Marcus Cyron (talk) 22:04, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Cameroons that Saker laboured.jpg[edit]

Could you give an opinion about this file? I see that you added a note about dubious copyright status.

According to Flickr, the image comes from the same book from 1908 by Emily Saker which we were discussing in a deletion request somewhere. As the book was published in 1908, it is in the public domain in the United States.

For the source country (the United Kingdom), don't you think that it is likely that the image either was made by Emily Saker herself, or, if not by her, that the image is anonymous? If I remember correctly, I think that we concluded in one of the other deletion requests that it is unlikely that Emily Saker still was alive in 1943, but I can't remember where that discussion was. Do you remember where that other deletion discussion was held? I suspect that either {{PD-old-70}} or {{PD-UK-unknown}} is true, but it would be nice to hear your opinion too. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:47, 10 May 2013 (UTC)[edit]

Hello Leoboudv, thanks for your good news, but I wonder if Armenian FoP law forfeited Armenian copyright holders' right to control the usage of their FoP-covered works (Architectures, Sculptures... etc). What do you think? --Puramyun31 (talk) 07:00, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help. but how about this? User:Canoe1967 said "A copyright cannot and should not be taken by any government. It is an inalienable human right for creators worldwide." this is why I asked this question. --Puramyun31 (talk) 07:29, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

OK, Thanks for your answer. regards. --Puramyun31 (talk) 07:51, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

How to best tag derivatives of flickr uploads?[edit]

Hi, I see you've had to manually review and approve a couple of derivative flickr images I've uploaded. For my last one I tried to copy what you did here, only to have FlickreviewR complaining no source. So, how should I tag such images to have FlickreviewR approve them without having to bother you or others? Guess I should have known without asking, as I used to be a admin around here, but it seems I've forgotten more than I ever learned :) Finn Rindahl (talk) 11:02, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Flickrreviewer will not pass cropped or edited images. But the "no source" reaction can be avoided by adding "Original source: <Flickr link>". That's the way I usually do these things, although Leoboudv's way is nice as well. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 06:52, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Reviewer tool[edit]

Why you don't use Rilke's image reviewing tool? It helps notifying users if review fails, and automatically gives you three links for [Change license]For when licesen on Commons and original source does not match [License+]When Commons file and original file has no problem, and there is no issues(like FlickrWashing), so you think it is OK to mark reviewed and [License-]When there is no source, copyright violation, unacceptable licenses. You can use this tool by putting following lines on your javascript page:

importScript('User:Rillke/LicenseReview.js'); //

And, you should mark No source indicated when flickr link is unavailable. Thanks for your reviewing and have a nice day. --레비Revi 09:52, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Next time, I'll consider marking 'no source' when a flickr link is unavailable. I personally have the npd and nsd tag option--and no source--but did not use it on a certain picture you reviewed. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 10:21, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello: Yes, I can find all the links of the photos on Flicker and show as previous. But do not know how to ask for a new order to "flickrreview". Can you help me do it? Thank you very much. Best Regards.Adolfobrigido (talk) 10:19, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello: I have already put the "links" of all the images and the type of permission. What should I do now?. Please help me because I have little experience. Thank you very much. Best Regards.Adolfobrigido (talk) 13:17, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I think I've already done the work. I do not know if I've done well, I did what I could. Thank you very much again. When you can, please tell me how I've done the work. Best regards.Adolfobrigido (talk) 22:15, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Hello again: I think in your last post you said that I still had some work to do. Just then clicked on the link you gave me and I saw the images that you meant, but now can not find them. Could you send it again? Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you very much for everything.Adolfobrigido (talk) 16:55, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Uf, what weight relieves me. Next time I'll go with more care and raising fewer images. Thank you very much. If not for me you would have deleted all and foulbrood worse, had not learned anything. Thank you. Best regards.Adolfobrigido (talk) 20:36, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Derivative works[edit]

No opposition to your deletion requests of my photos, but I really don't get what derivative works' policies applied here mean. Commons:Derivative works really doesn't help. For example, if I take a photo of Times Square and it contains several logos of trademarks, or if I take a photo of a public park/playground with a tiny model of Mickey Mouse in it, am I allowed to upload them to Commons and license them with a free license?

This is to avoid copyright violations in my future uploads (as I have a pile of photos in my computer and want to contribute them here, not counting those transferred from Flickr). Quenhitran (talk) 06:47, 19 July 2014 (UTC) Please reply on my talk page

Also, many of my Flickr uploads got stuck here at Category:Flickr images needing human review, I've already used Flickr2Commons for those works and all the links/sources were filled in automatically, why couldn't the bot find them? Quenhitran (talk) 06:49, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • If its a small image of a copyrighted object or the copyrighted image is not the primary object in the photo, it should be OK. But in this DR most of the images focus on the copyrighted object which means that Commons cannot keep it. Like this This is a modern banner and the studio which created it would sue Commons if it found out about this copyright violation. Finally, in this image the picture focuses on the copyrighted poster and the poster clearly dominates most people's view of the picture and is the main item in the photo so Commons cannot keep it either. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:49, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • PS: Bots are machines. They just upload freely licensed images and cannot tell if an image has copyright problems with derivative images or lack of FOP for post-1978 sculptures in the USA unlike human beings. Pictures of 1978 sculptures installed in the USA are deleted on Commons unlike Canada, the UK, Mexico, China or India which have full FOP. See COM:FOP Goodbye, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:57, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Well thank you for your answers, but you didn't seem to get the gist of my second question. I understand that the bot cannot determine whether or not the images violate the regulations on derivative works or the freedom of panorama, but it should be able to detect the original licenses of images on Flickr (CC-BY or CC-BY-SA). Many of my Flickr uploads are originally available under CC-BY or CC-BY-SA 2.0, but the bot still stated that it cannot determine. Probably there is some problems with the server where the bot's running, it's becoming unreliable these days. As a reviewer, please take your time reviewing images left in Category:Flickr images needing human review. Thanks, Quenhitran (talk) 10:59, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

  • If you don't crop the images, the bot should pass the images but sometimes the bot puts it into flickr human review for reasons unknown. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:09, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Question by Fauvirt[edit]

Hi! Are you sure that you "confirmed that it was available on Picasa Web Albums under the above license on that date" by these pictures? Because the album have the name: "Kézfogásaim", what means "My handshakes"... I am in correspondence with Tibor Végh, so I am sure that he is not the author of these images... Can you examine the decision reviewed by these pictures, please?... Thank you, Fauvirt (talk) 11:57, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Yes,. I am sure. The picasa account owner is Tibor Végh and the license is 'cc by 3.0 generic.' It still is and unless Tibor stole the images from another person's account, it seems that likely to assumne that the images are Tibor's own work. --Leoboudv (talk) 01:06, 29 June 2016 (UTC) --Leoboudv (talk) 01:04, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
  • The picasa review bot passed this image and it is a robot, not a human being so the license is confirmed as 'cc by 3.0 generic'. PS: Tibor Vegh has 278 images on Wikimedia Commons. So, he seems to be a legitimate photographer. --Leoboudv (talk) 01:12, 29 June 2016 (UTC) --Leoboudv (talk) 01:08, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: The license was {{Cc-by-2.0}} at upload in 2014 which means it is free for commercial use provided the source is credited. The photographer is not named but the source is clearly trustworthy. The license was later changed to include Non-Commercial and no-Derivative use restrictions....and today is not free but it was passed in 2014 and is considered passed for life on Wikicommons. I don't know who the photographer was. I mark images based on the license at upload and if the source is trustworthy. It is quite possible that the photographer worked for the Texas Library or donated the rights to the library since it was taken in 'Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.'

Roger Puta files[edit]

I would hold off on spending your time reviewing the Roger Puta images. They're all already OTRS confirmed (see {{RogerPuta}}), so I'm hoping to have that template replace the 'license review needed' template for the several thousand photos in the collection. Cheers, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 04:54, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: That would be a relief! Zhuyifei1999 runs the flickrreview bot and you could post a message on his talkpage asking if this could be done. Everytime someone uploads the Roger Puta images from flickr, they end up in the human review needed category since the flickr license is PD Mark (PDM) but the OTRS permission is valid as Admin James Woodward informed me here. So, the images are essentially public domain in this case as the OTRS message states. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:33, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I usually manage to replace the PDM with the proper template within a few minutes when I upload one, but that's not always the case. There was just a mass transfer of ~3,000 images from the collection; the uploader will be putting the proper template on when they recover from the flu. Thanks as always for all your license review work; it's much appreciated. Cheers, Pi.1415926535 (talk) 15:38, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker): I noticed all these images and was hoping someone would place a positive review tag on then seeing as there is an OTRS ticket on them all. It would be quite a marathon task to individually review them. Cheers Ww2censor (talk) 23:06, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Re: Enterprise Incident[edit]

I wish I could say "yes". What we have here for Star Trek came from eBay finds-photos sent to various newspapers by those connected with the program. I'm sure publicity photos for this episode were sent to newspapers and magazines, but I haven't seen anything like this that we could use turn up as yet. Not to say it won't happen-that depends on what Star Trek photos are being sold on eBay.

Searching eBay for them on a regular basis can help. When I do, I look at both current auctions and completed, because you can view the original, now closed auction where things like backs of photos with the information we need is. ;) I use Internet Archive for keeping links to the photos, along with front & back upload. The only thing to remember is that the dating for the photos has to be between 1966 and 1969-the series original run on NBC. After it got into syndication, Paramount became very diligent about using copyright notices for the photos.

The only other way I can think of for a PD photo from the episode would be to find an advertisement for Star Trek printed before 1978 with no notice that used an episode photo. With the syndication of the show, local television stations who purchased these packages may have used photos to promote themselves airing the series in newspapers or local television guides.

Regarding the way non-free photos are handled in television articles at en:WP, I wish there would be a "standard" which would allow a non-free image if no PD one is available for articles written about individual episodes from a television series. Since at least one person (likely more) took the time to write and source an article about a given episode of a program, it should be permitted for the sake of identification. The photo aids those reading the article by allowing them to see a scene, thus "connecting" them with what the article is written about. Can imagine many people saying "Oh, yeah-now I remember this!" which may not always be possible with just text alone. Just my thought--if there's enough well-sourced information for an article about it, that should mean a photo-one non-free if necessary-should be allowed. We hope (talk) 13:43, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Please avoid marking photographs with perfectly valid Flickr sources as having no source.

Tell Rifaat images[edit]

ISIL car bomb explodes in Menagh Air Base.gif, Tawhid Brigade and Conquest Brigade T-54-1.png, and Baked pita on conveyor belt in Tell Rifaat.jpg were all licensed under Creative Commons. What do you mean there is no "show more" button? There clearly is one for all 3 videos. This may be a problem on your end. I think it's best for a team to check the copyright status of files instead of a single person checking hundreds of images. This way, there would be more transparency.

Also, this KurdWatch video was clearly licensed under Creative Commons. Other videos by the same channel may not be, but this one clearly is. Editor abcdef (talk) 08:48, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: There is no CC BY license mentioned for this video clip here since there is no 'Show More' Option.

Goodnight, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:57, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm sorry but this seem to be a problem on your end. There is clearly a "show more" button below the bread video, and below it is the Creative Commons license.

Hi. I've been trying to help out with the license review backlog but I'm not sure how to approach all the images on Tistory because it's all in Korean and even with translations, I've got no idea how to navigate the website. All I know is there's usually a little icon in the corner that says the license the images have been released under, but are there any other pages I should check before passing it? Anarchyte (work | talk) 09:24, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

  • I don't mark Tistory images since I cannot read Chinese or Korean. You should ask reviewer Explicit who marks these images Anarchyte. See this edits by him/her. The only other person I trust is uploader Puramyun31 who knows copyright. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:44, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
    • Tistory is definitely a tricky one because of the language barrier most reviewers face in reviewing the blogs. A starter kit I can offer is User:-revi/Tistory and related deletion requests. Generally, there are three pages to check for any restrictions: the text on blog post itself, the guestbook (방명록) and a "notice" page, if it has one. Two main keywords you want to look for are "2차가공" (secondary processing) and "로고 삭제/로고 크롭" (logo removal/logo crop), as these are always followed by some form of "금지" (prohibited), which makes these not okay for Commons. These are sometimes written in English on the posts ("do not edit"), and when answering to a query in the guestbook, the photographer will respond with "[...] 안 됩니다" ([...] is not allowed). Also, it's also a good idea simply search the blog ( on Commons and cross-check for reviews of older uploads from the same blog. You also free to ask me, -revi, and (presumably) Puramyun31 to give something a look. xplicit 10:48, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Anarchyte: you might also find it useful to review Commons:Where is the license on various sites? if you don't already know about that page. It has a Tistory entry. Ww2censor (talk) 11:18, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

I noticed that you have confirmed a lot of images from this site (eg. File:Concentración frente a la conselleria de Economía este jueves.jpg) as being CC-licensed. Looking at the license page at that site: I see the section:

Estas condiciones tienen las siguientes excepciones:

Hello Leoboudv,

I am here because I see that you have successfully passed the license review for File:Tingsrydtravet upplopp.jpg. Please note that is listed at COM:Bad sources. When you see a file from that website, you should tag it with {{Npd}} or {{Nsd}} according to the instructions given at COM:Bad sources. You should not add {{LicenseReview}} to such files because the mentioned licenses are vague: they lack a version number (3 or 4) and a direct link to the legal web page of CC licenses at the official CC website. Please see Commons:Deletion requests/File:Pinkman with Yannick Gingras.jpg for an example.

Thank you. 4nn1l2 (talk) 17:08, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Hi Leoboudv, The following discussions in March 2012, June 2012 and August 2012 are probably the most pertinent to mynewsdesk being listed a bad source. I also think I see what they have done though I have no idea when they made the change. Previously the Creative Commons link on their image pages was to the actual license, while now it just states that images have a CC license without stating which one. I distinctly remember some of the discussions where Yann was also a contributor but we currently have 5,000+ mynewsdesk images here of which 178 are in a category need review but another category contains 3,800+ images, so there must be another 1,000+ lying around somewhere that are not categorised as mynewsdesk sourced images. Perhaps there needs to be a new discussion about the validity of all those images because I assume, based on a quick look at a few images, the 3,800+ all have good license reviews, thought I was always suspicious of mynewsdesk's licensing. Let me know if you take this any further. Ww2censor (talk) 22:14, 13 April 2018 (UTC)'*Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Thanks for the links Ww2censor on I always had the sense that something was not quite right but the license seemed to be CC BY 3.0 so I reluctantly reviewed them. I have been busy with work these past 2 days to mark many images at all. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:21, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Here is the so-called mynewsdesk Photogallery and on the "Link" you can actually acccess the image and click on the license...and it says CC BY 3.0. So that was how I justified passing images from this web site with the words CC Erkannande. But the strange thing I thought when I passed the images was that....the author/photographer was never named. My apologies, the photographer is Named but I don't know if these images are truly OK for Commons. Maybe you do....but I have the feeling this website owners don't understand copyright.

      • And I see that you "accepted" many other files coming from the same source (Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland FlickR account; many from here: Category:Files provided by Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland). Unfortunately in Poland there is nothing like "PD gov" in US, therefore releasing into PD needs to have a valid reason - for example an owner of Economic Rights of Authors can do it; or author itself when he is still the owner of these rights. But in all these cases, Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland fails to provide such justification and merely states (per license text): "[...] has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights. " which untrue. Masur (talk) 08:32, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Dear Masur,

I accepted the KPRM Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland flickr Polish images because I asked the experts on Commons around such as on the Admin noticeboard and I was told that these images were PD by law in Poland. So what was I to think? If you wish to stop accepting it, please tell Artur Andrez to stop uploading them. I did what I was advised to be told. I just asked somewhere a separate question over here on the copyright status of 2 images of Martin Bares & Petr Pleva. I don't act until the 'experts' give me advice and if the advice is wrong, then what can I say? I don't just pass images. It is almost 1:40 PM AM in Canada and I have to sign out soon after uploading a few images. Thank you Masur, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:40, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

  • PS: Dear Masur,
    • No problemo. Now I am only wndering how to tackle these 200 or so images that are there. Masur (talk) 14:54, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

I think it was Norden1990 who convinced me that images from KPRM was PD by law in Poland from this DR In future, I could approach a KPRM image in this I did with individual private flickr accounts. But the problem is it looks like the flickr bot operators or the Admins have programmed their system to accept PDM images from the KPRM account as this pass and this pass shows. And they are recent passes--December 2017 and 2018. Have you seen this Februry 2018 pass So, they seem to be saying that KPRM is OK for PDM images but private individual accounts are not. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:05, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Question regarding some videos[edit]

Hi! I was just wondering if videos like this or this would be accepted on commons. I'm unsure so I figured I would ask before putting in the effort to upload images extracted from them.

Also, do you mind reviewing this image? It seems like Wikipedia generally prefers images to be reviewed before they're put to use, and I'd like to use it. Thanks. DanielleTH (talk) 21:46, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Can I help?[edit]

I'm asking you because you reviewed various images I uploaded or marked for review. I don't know where you stand on what I'm about to say.

I don't think I'm ever going to be accepted as a license reviewer. I don't know for sure to what degree you would trust me, but is there some way I could help? The backlog for videos is pretty huge. So for example, maybe I could check videos for derivative works and you could skip that check. I could also check other aspects, but since I don't expect to be accepted as a reviewer I can't actually review them. I'm not sure if there is a practical way I could help, but if you think there is let me know. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 21:56, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I am a busy person and have a job. You should ask an experienced Admin this question. I once review some videos as most times as I have too many images to review or have to work. Thanks, --Leoboudv (talk) 22:05, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. Didn't mean to suggest you have too much time, just trying to help. I'd prefer to do it myself, but if my request is not accepted (and that seems a bit doubtful atm) I was hoping to be able to help/aid with the license reviewing somehow. As there now also is a support vote, I'll wait and see where my request goes. Maybe the first votes didn't set a trend after all. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 00:31, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps you could increase your number of edits to win more support to be a license reviewer. I don't know you but have no problems with your work.

File:Zinedine Zidane by Tasnim 03.jpg[edit]

Hi, could you take another look at this license review? It looks like the photographer is Hadi Abyar, and a search for that name suggests he is with "Fars News Agency" rather than Tasnim. The Tasnim CC-BY 4.0 license is only for Tasnim's own agency photographers, so I don't think it applies. Guanaco (talk) 03:37, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: The image is on a Tasnim source. What would you have me do Guanaco? --Leoboudv (talk) 03:41, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
    I would start a DR. When the source is Tasnim we have to determine if it's actually a photo from Tasnim, or shared from another news agency. They are generous in licensing their own works, but they also use syndicated content from other organizations. This has been a frequent source of confusion, unfortunately, and there's no easy solution. Guanaco (talk) 03:47, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Dear Guanaco,

Since most images on Commons by Hadi Abyar are on Tasnim, perhaps you should launch a DR by yourself. One would think that Hadi works for Tasnim from this evidence. I don't have an appetite here and to me Fars and Tasnim are both Iranian government agencies. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 03:53, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

I've discovered that Fars News Agency also licenses their content under CC BY 4.0, so I'm convinced these are fine to keep. Guanaco (talk) 04:03, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Thank You Guanaco. I have to review both Tasnim and Fars images. The Iranian state is smart...they license many images free and they appear on Wikicommons unlike the Arab states. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 04:06, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Guanaco: Some photographers work for more than one agency. As long as photos are credited to a person they are fine.

Question about CC0 and PD[edit]

Hello there! I saw the message i putted in two of the images that I upped from Flickr [9] and [10], but I didn't get the whole thing.

Thanks for the help, Paladinum2 (talk) 15:03, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Paladinum2: COM:PDM, in short: PDM is not a license, just a way to tag (for example) very old works. To release a work into the public domain, instruct the author to use CC0 instead. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 16:50, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
I see, so they will be deleted, nothing I can do about it, but at least I learned this. Thanks. Paladinum2 (talk) 04:15, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
@Paladinum2: If works from political parties in the source country are excluded from copyright, PD-mark may be right. But on Commons PD-mark always needs to be replaced with the appropriate PD-tag (PD-old-70, PD-1923, PD-GermanGov, etc). If there is none, the PD-mark sadly isn't valid. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 15:18, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Third party opinion[edit]

Hi Leoboudv, I pinged you Discasto's page before. Could you please intervene here as a third opinion? This is wasting a lot of time, and it looks pretty irrational. Check this [11], for the last edit by the above editor. You can also follow the discussion. Sorry if this is not a right place to ask this. Thanks Iñaki LL (talk) 16:22, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Funny thing, there has been a third party opinion. As such opinion didn't support Iñaki's, he kept edit warring and now doing some forum shopping. Sorry, Leoboudv, if you have to waste your time here. --Discasto talk 18:02, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
What the... "As such opinion didn't support Iñaki's", hahah, this is surreal really. Good thing there is the edit history for everyone to see (edits summaries, edit warring, attitudes, and actual edits). Iñaki LL (talk) 18:49, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Leoboudv could you please help me to upload an image of this page, is the actor of the image that I uploaded that was the year of 1954, I found this page but I do not know how to upload an image or that license to put, so I ask you because I think if you know, please help me --Derasu (talk) 18:37, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

License reviews for Jan Arkesteijn uploads[edit]

Hi, I have overwritten and redone the license review you added back in April for File:Hermann-Josef Lamberti (2014).jpg (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs). The reason Flickrreview failed was because the image had been digitally changed, including the EXIF data. By overwriting with the digitally authentic original, the automatic review has now worked and I have made a recrop, keeping the colours authentic to the photographer's original choices.

As Jan Arkesteijn has been blocked for similar issues of misrepresenting original works, I suggest following a similar workflow if oddly coloured images from a different Flickr original come up. Thanks -- (talk) 11:07, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

  • I believe all Jan Arkesteijn's images were cropped but came from the same source. That is why I passed them. I'll have a brief look. Wow! Jan's user page is now blocked! I did not know this. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 19:42, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment:

Dear ,

Most (80+%) of Jan's images I reviewed are from librarie mollat below and usually have only 1 image in them by Jan.

  • I assume they are OK. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:14, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
  • For this image below, it appears that Jan made the image brighter. Is that a problem...when the license is free?
  • File:Sophie Divry (2018).jpg

That is my only question. Thanks, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:16, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

There are two types of misrepresentation, which has led to some photographs getting deleted and the uploader being blocked at this moment:
  1. Add false colours to original professional works based on personal tastes, which damages educational value per Scope, rather than adding any apparent value. For non-GLAM works this is probably unlikely to cause contention, but could still be debatable if a representative original is never uploaded to Commons
  2. Adding copyright statements to EXIF data which misrepresents the copyright statements at source
In the Flickr cases, reverting to the Flickr original solves any potential debate and the bot-verification provides a nice record of authenticity even if the image is then cropped.
Picking out one of the cases you list (I only looked at two), File:Nina Bouraoui (2016).jpg has a correct claim on the image page text, but the EXIF data on the file includes the statements "Online copyright statement" and "Usage terms Public domain" which is clearly false and invalidates your license review. Sorry. Please handle uploads from this user with more caution than normal. -- (talk) 06:16, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I agree they say PD-Mark in the EXIF but they use CC BY 3.0 for the {{|Youtube}} license according to COM:WHERE LICENSE for this and many other images. I usually verify the Youtube license unless I see something supicious.

For these 2 images below, librarie mollat says the license is CC BY 3.0 in the metadata so I guess I have to file a DR on the first image you mentioned which is PD-Mark.

Can you explain me this? Chronus (talk) 00:00, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Chronus: what is there to explain? Commons does not consider the Public Domain Mark to be a license. There have been discussions about this and the policy so far hasn't been changed. You can ask Flickr accounts that use the PDM to switch to CC0. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 00:08, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: PD Mark is not considered an enforceable license on Commons and the copyright holder can remove or change the license of the image at any time and no one can use it. It is not enforceable...unless it is a US Government image since US Government images are Public Domain by US law. So, this image is not acceptable since it comes from someone's personal account. {{CC0}} or public domain dedication such as this image on flickr is OK for Commons. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 09:08, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) note that PD Mark is also valid for images that are in the public domain due to age. But in any case, images with a PD-Mark need to have the corresponding PD license when uploaded to Commons like {{PD-USGov}}, {{PD-old-auto-expired}}, {{PD-Italy}}, etc. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 13:45, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Linking the original on DRs[edit]

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Russian Orthodox Church in Antwerpen (Sint-Jozefkerk).jpg

Could you please link the original on Flickr in cases like these? The "bad authors" list is an absolute mess and shouldn't, in and of itself, be considered as a reason for deletion. Thanks to Google I was able to find the source: This Flickr account was blacklisted because of states: "The majority of the photograph in this Flickr stream are of my own 'production'. I post them here to share with the community but also to use them in my blogs, so this stream works as a storage space (these days they call it 'cloud'). At some point I began to gather here not only my own works, but also the images of other people - photographs, artworks, charts, maps, and whatnots. I try to attribute all these works as accurately as I can, but it's not always possible, unfortunately. Too many things are just 'laying there' on the web, unattributed and untitled."

The photo that was deleted here per that DR appears to have been own work. They appear to own at least a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and an iPhone 4. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 15:53, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Since I thought they are from the same source and the other was in flickr and belongs to a museum I thought this one was also. I cannot find any more informations about that photo altough since it's one in a kind and the only one of the prototype looking from the front I thought it was a good idea.

Flickr reviews[edit]

Hi! Often Flickr files could not be reviewed by bots because they are downscaled (not the same as cropped).

Sorry, Leoboudv, but your changes are totally wrong! You should have get startled with the Pixabay username. This image was copied from Pexels to Pixabay. I think you should revert your changes and do the review for the Pexels source (oh, no, you already had reviewed it). — Speravir – 18:57, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: OK Sorry Speravir. I thought this was a MaxPixels photo where there was a Mass DR filed and most images came from Pixabay. I can revert my pass and pass this image as a pexels photo. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 19:08, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
  • ✓ Done The Pexels license changed only in July 2018 so its CC0. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 19:12, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
✓OK On a general note: During the MaxPixels action recently I actually thought whether we should treat Pexels similarily like Pixabay, especially with own template with LR included (the template exists: {{Pexels-Cc-zero}}), but than I saw that there are not that much images here (at least in cat. Files from Pexels; on the other hand see search results for file: pexels -hastemplate:"pexels-cc-zero") and forgot it. That the license has changed not that long ago I did not know BTW. Did you check with the Wayback Machine? — Speravir – 19:27, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, these sites copy/copied from each other. For this other example the Pexels user is named Pixabay. Actually this user naming is quite good for us I think. In my opinion we should try to give the real source as far as possible for us which can be very hard, you know it yourself. BTW there is also a Pixabay user WikimediaImages, cf. at VP: Pixabay user "WikimediaImages".
Regarding your “I can try if I have the time:”What do you refer to? The template? I would do this myself, I was also partly involved in template {{Pixabay}} enhancement. But do we need it when we have the general {{LicenseReview}}? This said: I do not understand why the Pexels equivalent is not simply named {{Pexels}} (I would favor moving this to this name i.e. vice versa). — Speravir – 22:46, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I was referring to the fact that I have a job and have to work. That is all. I don't mind why the Pexels equivalent is not simply named {{Pexels}} as long as the image was really CC0 at upload because a new pexels image today is not CC0. That is why we have {{LicenseReview}} for new uploaded Pexel images. Thank You, --Leoboudv (talk) 23:51, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
✓OK, then we leave it as it is. — Speravir – 02:26, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Can you review these?

As you can see in the file history, FlickreviewR 2 confirmed these as being available with PD-mark in 2018, but the photos have been removed from Flickr since that time.
