User talk:Magog the Ogre
I noticed that you have marked the file 'Pressefoto-Bernd-Sahner.jpg' with a having unclear license statement and that it will be deleted by next Sunday. However, today it has been deleted already. Maybe I didn't clearly state the copyright status in the license tag? Could you please help me to do so:
The copyright of the image is at the Universitätsklinik in Freiburg (engl. : University Medical Center Freiburg), which is offering the download and usage for reports about Bernd Sahner (see website: https://www.uniklinik-freiburg.de/nc/presse/pressemitteilungen/detailansicht/presse/317.html).
"Pressefoto" means image for journalism. The usage of the file is explicitly permitted.
How to state this correctly?
If you please could help me as fast as possible - I feel ashamed for not having understood the licensing...
- @Schmidan: it's quite OK. We don't expect our new users to get everything right the first time, especially with something as complex as copyrights.
- In this case, it doesn't look like the university explicitly provided a license for that image, so it probably isn't yet suitable for Commons. However, many organizations are OK with licensing their press photos as free; we just have to ask them politely. I see a contact email: email@example.com. Could you please follow the instructions at Commons:E-Mail-Vorlagen? Let me know if you get a positive response. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 19:49, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

- @Alex brollo: maybe before you do a mass upload, you could preview the upload. You probably already know that by now but I thought I'd give advice in case you don't. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:03, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Magog, it looks like I messed up when I transferred File:Arthur Sullivan memorial at Wellington Barracks.JPG here - I didn't move over the original upload, only the derivative version. Kelly (talk) 08:23, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
