Chinese photos[edit]

Hi, you are not allowed to upload any image you find on the internet. Photos from news services are protected by copyright and not released under a free license (GFDL, Creative Commons or similar). The images will be deleted unless you can show that they are freely licensed.

Scanning photos from a book do not transfer the copyright to you. Please show that these photos have been released under a free license by the copyright owner.

Of course scanning an image does not transfer ownership to me. But taking a photo also does not transfer the copyright of the original creator of the artwork. All of these items you list, with the exception of the first, are photos taken of works of art or architecture who creators lived centuries ago. The photo of the Makuya at the Kotel, I would argue, is a photo of a public event and thus is a public image; but I do respect to some degree the workings of copyright, and I will not challenge you on this one. However, as for all the rest, art belongs to the people. Just as no one person or institution has the right to own the copyright to Shakespeare's words or the Mona Lisa or images of the Statue of Liberty, so no one person or institution should hold solitary copyright ownership of any of these works. LordAmeth 02:53, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
PS All of these images, with the exception of the Khong Mon, which is Thai, are of Japanese subjects. None are "Chinese photos". Just fyi. LordAmeth 02:54, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
You have not shown that the photos are released by the copyright owner under a free license, hence all of them have been deleted. Your reflections on what copyright law should be like in the future have been noticed. Thuresson 20:24, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
I think you do Wikipedia and its sister projects a great disservice by agressively seeking out and deleting such photos. Images are a powerful enhancement to articles, and in many cases are essential to explaining or demonstrating elements of the article's subject. Any work whose creator passed away over 70 years ago enters the public domain - that's the law. LordAmeth 00:06, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course. First of all, this isn't Wikipedia, this is an image database of freely licensed images. Secondly, you have not shown that the photographers have been dead for more than 70 years. Considering that you scanned the photos from recently published books, I find that unlikely. You may of course start your own Wiki project with photos you choose yourself. Thuresson 12:26, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
I know this is old news, and I'm not sure if you're even still watching my talk page. But if you are, I would just like to say again that regardless of who takes a photo of an artwork, the artwork itself remains in the public domain if its creator has been dead for a certain number of years. Unless you intend to purport that every photograph ever taken of any work of art introduces its own creativity, in composition or lighting or whatever, and is thus a work of art itself, you must acknowledge the copyright-free status of these images.

Response[edit]

In response to your question: "why do users keep listing ppl by their given names?" The reason is because Americans are used to the last name coming second and in Japanese renderings in English we are often unsure or don't notice. I know that Kano is a surname but I might have overlooked it. It makes it more difficult and that's why mistakes are often made and things are sorted by given names. gren 06:14, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Category:36 views of the Fuji[edit]

Hello, you listed this category for renaming on COM:DEL. When you have decided on a suitable name let me know on my talk page and I will have it renamed. Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:35, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

How about "36 Views of Mount Fuji"? That's what Wikipedia calls it, and it's just as good as any other slight semantic variations. LordAmeth 12:25, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Portals[edit]

Look here I think about new Wikimedia project or new namespace in commons - maybe Atlas: or Album: We have thousands galleries, but nobody worry about better format for galleries, cause commons is only a repository. Maybe Portal or Album or Atlas would be good for the beginning Przykuta 05:52, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Kaigetsudo Anchi - Standing Courtesan with calligraphic design kimono.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-2.5}} to release it under the Creative Commons or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

Thank you for notifying me of this problem. You will find, however, that all the necessary information is on the image's page. I apologize for not including the proper copyright template tag, which was merely an oversight; I really thought that I had included that. I do not know if another tag might be more appropriate than Template:PD-art, but I leave that up to you. The original image is a painting by Kaigetsudo Anchi, who lived and died over two hundred years ago, long before copyright law was invented. The photography (digital image) of the work was taken from visipix.com, which houses copyright-free images and allows their use provided that a link to their URL is given (which it is).

Please see my response above, and let me know if there's any other tiny details I need to fix on the labeling in order to protect these beautiful public domain works of art from being deleted. LordAmeth 00:20, 3 January 2007 (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 informations 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.

Thanks for uploading File:New Okinawa Prefectural Museum.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion.

If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

JuTa 20:08, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi JuTa. The photo in question was taken by Japanese Wikipedia User:絶対◆2BenKiTYKw], who released the image under the GNU Documentation License, as seen here. All I did was transfer the image over to Wikimedia Commons. I make no claims to copyright of the image myself, and do not have the power to release it. However, the photographer, 絶対◆2BenKiTYKw, who took the photo himself, has released it for use in this way. So, please fix whatever needs to be fixed on the templates, to reflect that. Thank you.
