Naruszenia praw autorskich[edit]

Purity[edit]

Thank you for nominating my picture. But I have already tried with a better version Image:Nerium oleander bud.jpg and failed. I will replace the "Purity" file with the "Nerium oleander" image, maybe it will have better chance now... Alvesgaspar 17:33, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Maire, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to Commons:List_of_administrators and the related lists by language and date it references...

Grafiki - własność rządowa III Rzeszy i zasady autorskich praw materialnych - na marginesie PD-Polish[edit]

Na marginesie dyskusji o Commons:Deletion requests/Template:PD-Polish cały pakiet spraw dot.

1. Grafik, których prawnym właścicielem był rząd III Rzeszy (np. MSZ III Rzeszy),lub agencje państwowe ( jak Deutsches NAchrichten Buro) - A NIE OSOBY PRYWATNE- prawa wygasły w maju 1945 po likwidacji III Rzeszy jako państwa -podmiotu prawa cywilnego. Prosi się o stworzenie Template:PD-NaziGov.

2. Zauważyłem ,że niektórzy administratorzy (konkretnie-niemieccy) próbują wykorzystać dyrektywę harmonizującą EU dla generalnej blokady foto sprzed 1945 r.- niezależnie od proweniencji.

3.Tymczasem podstawową sprawą jest kwestia istnienia lub nie MATERIALNYCH praw majątkowych do dzieła, ktore są zbywalne i mogą ulec umorzeniu nawet przed datą śmierci autora.

4.Przykładowo - zdjęcie , do którego prawa zostały sprzedane np.Ilustrowanemu Kurierowi Codziennemu czy DNB,albo wykonane przez pracownika Ministerstwa Propagandy Rzeszy czy DNB , a osoba prawna uległa likwidacji bez następców prawnych prawa nabytego jest zdjęciem w domenie publicznej (prawo zbyte skutecznie nie wraca do zbywcy -autora)

5. Poza tym bardzo dużo starych zdjęć to zdjęcia legitymacyjne, paszportowe etc robione przez rzemieślnicze zakłady fotograficzne , które albo w ogóle nie są ( i nie powinny być )przedmiotem prawa autorskiego , albo jeśli traktować to restrykcyjnie - prawa do nich zostały zbyte przez wykonawcę (twórcę)- fotografa w chwili wyjścia klienta z zakładu fotograficznego po zapłaceniu za wykonanie zdjęcia, niezależnie od tego gdzie pozostał negatyw ( i nikt po wydarzeniach II wojny i komunizmu badać tego nie będzie)

6. Pozostaje kwestia zdjęć amatorskich - bez autorstwa. Jeśli już dziś niektórzy niemieccy admini chcą usuwać zdjęcia egzekucji dokonanych przez Wehrmacht w 1939 r vide : Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Ciepielow.jpg

pod pretekstem dyrektywy harmonizacyjnej i poszukiwania autora ( gdyby się znalazł - to pierwszy do zawiadomienia - Prokurator IPN)...

a zdjęcia z powstania w getcie warszawskim zostały usunięte to aż się prosi o rozwinięcie tematu.

A prawna sytuacja jest taka,że w prawie europejskim ciężar dowodu faktu spoczywa na osobie,która z tego faktu chce wyciągnąć konsekwencje prawne. Dotyczy to zarówno prawa karnego ( domniemanie nieiwnności) jak i cywilnego , którego częścią jest prawo autorskie. Tzn. o ile nie ma dowodu na zastrzeżenie prawa o tyle ono nie istnieje . W polskim prawie autorskim przerzuca to ciężar dowodu na autora ,zaś wydawca ma jedynie OBOWIĄZEK ZACHOWANIA NALEŻYTEJ STARANNOŚCI - tzn. wiedzieć to co może uzyskać przy zachowaniu zwykłych wymogów staranności. Prawo zakłada domniemanie dobrej wiary użytkownika rzeczy czy prawa tzn. ewentualne naruszenie prawa materialnego może stwierdzić tylko właściciel tego prawa zwracając się z żądaniem do użytkownika o zaprzestanie naruszenia prawa ( i udowadniając swój interes prawny). Tzn. trzeba wykazać naruszenie prawa.

Ponieważ jest to powszechna zasada prawa rzymskiego ,obowiązująca zarówno w prawie polskim, jak i niemieckim inne postępowanie jest uzurpacją i po prostu robieniem ludziom wody z mózgu poprzez świadome mieszanie pojęcia autorskiego prawa osobistego, autorskiego prawa materialnego, zasady należytej staranności, domniemania legalności i zasady cięzaru dowodu po stronie tego, który zgłasza zarzut naruszenia prawa.

Generalnie: często słyszany argument,że każda grafika ma autora należy uzupełnić następująco: KAŻDA GRAFIKA MA AUTORA ALE WCALE NIE KAŻDA MA WŁAŚCICIELA i nie ma to nic wspólnego z datą śmierci autora.

To takie wstępne uwagi , które IMHO warto przemyśleć w długi weekend a potem przegadać z innymi adminami na Commons i na wikipl.

Prośba o tłumaczenie[edit]

Cześć. Zwracam się do Ciebie z prośbą (czytaj: zawracam ci głowę), gdyż z polskich adminów commons najlepiej znasz francuski. :-)) Chodzi mi o tłumaczenie opisu grafiki image:Paul Chardot beax.jpg na język francuski. Głównie chodzi mi o tego starszego pana, bo z tego co zdążyłam o nim znaleźć to jakiś lokalne guru i w zasadzie wszystko co dziś wiemy na temat zabezpieczenia ogniowego budynków (nie tylko we Francji, ale na całym świecie) - to zasługa badań tego pana. Ja rozumiem, że tekst specyficzny, ale może Ci się uda choć trochę napisać. Z góry dzięki :-))) --Beax 21:38, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

File Deleted by you[edit]

Why did you delete the file, Mounttahomalogo.jpg from the commons. You stated that it is a logo, so? I created it for my school district and there is NO copyright on it!..

Responsible Linguist Needed[edit]

My problem may (or not) involve a usurpation in support of my unified account (a.k.a. Single User-Login), but I would have come to you even if I were sure that a Bureaucrat will be needed for eventual renames of the accounts User:Jerzy and (my current account here at Commons) User:enJerzy.
I say that because User:Jerzy's native language is Polish, and mine English; they have declared themself as de-2 and en-1, and I am probably also de-2, but otherwise monolingual. I've written to User:Jerzy on this subject, in both English and my wretched German, and had no response (even tho User:Jerzy edited since then, 9 days ago). From a selfish point of view, that is nothing serious for me: I haven't contributed on Commons at all in the 4.5 years preceding this month, and the inconvenience of logging in (and remembering why I have to here) on the probably rare occasions when I return after getting my unified acct should be minor.
On the other hand, I am compulsive, and if User:Jerzy eventually asks for renaming, after I've activated my unified account -- perhaps to get their own -- someone may have to deal with deleting and restoring mine for me. And of course the clarity of unified accounts is a convenience to other users, so many users' minor interests are affected.
So in light of your linguistic skill and general wiki-savvy, would you be willing to serve as an interpreter between us in this matter? I'd hate either to just give up, or to ask a bureaucrat to consider notifying User:Jerzy of pending usurpation if there continues to be no objection stated, as a means of ensuring there is nothing more than awkwardness and uncertainty preventing a well informed resolution of this.
--enJerzyt 05:26, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your help, and I hope I didn't seem impatient, by tracking you down to your home project and pinging you there! In fact, the process of usurping the usurpable accounts and finding out which accounts are not usurpable has gone on now for a month, and if i were really impatient, i'd probably have given up -- a week or ten days ago -- on caring what the fate of the last few will be.
    I still think the clarity and efficiency that patience should yield is worth the wait, and your kind efforts are everything that I had hoped for.
    --enJerzyt 03:14, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
    • I found some value in the following Google "translation" of #Jerzy
      Excuse me, that until now, but due to the holidays. I should be grateful for the brokerage, since these are matters on which I feel is not strong in English, let alone in other language. Of course, the idea of a Univ. appears to be correct, in principle, as most Enjerzy you can be and to do so in such form, which corresponds to Him. And I figure as I can - unless - "JerzyD." Better yet, but that was, if I could sign on as the Wikip.pl - that is, "Thornan." But it was rejected at the first attempt to register, and Jerzy no! Thus it as is. Thus: happy, but if so, whether mógłybym firstly be Thornanem in Wikim.C. And, secondly, to keep my "achievements"? I cordially greet and you and enJerzego - Jerzy (talk) 17:57, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Of course, part of its value is as a reminder that natural-language translation is still a human task! (And I am tempted, against my better judgment, to conjecture that mógłybym can translate möglich, despite ł and l sounding different.)
I'm not sure I need a full real translation; perhaps i should ask you to correct any misconceptions, and fill in any gaps that are worth worrying about. I detect a polite and cooperative tone. I gather we will need someone like you, as intermediary even if we can forgo full translations. It appears he is saying that he is pl:User:Thornan (and I see that their language profiles match), but User:Thornan was not available; however, it appears to me (without benefit of admin tools) to be free. My impression is that he would be happy to be renamed to User:Thornan with (as I understand is routine) his contributions reattributed to that new username. In that hope, I shan't bother stating my understandings of the roles of Thornanem and JerzyD.
Do i need more translation help?
Should I have you inform him that you or i will approach a bureaucrat, saying that he has agreed subject to those steps succeeding?
(It doesn't appear that you mentioned to him that I would set up a box on the new user & user-talk pages pointing to his new one, but perhaps that is a detail that won't matter.)

Jerzy[edit]

Przepraszam, że dopiero teraz, ale to ze względu na wakacje. Będę wdzieczny za pośrednictwo, gdyż są to sprawy, w których nie czuję się mocny po polsku, a co dopiero w innych jęz. Oczywiście, ze idea konta uniw. wydaje się słuszna, więc zasadniczo jak najbardziej Pan Enjerzy może je mieć i to w takiej formie, jaka Jemu odpowiada. A ja mogę figurowac jako - chyba - "JerzyD". Jeszcze lepiej by jednak było, gdybym mógł się podpisywać tak, jak w Wikip.pl - czyli "Thornan". Ale to zostało odrzucone przy pierwszej próbie rejestracji, a Jerzy nie! Stąd jest jak jest. Zatem: chętnie, ale w takim razie, czy mógłybym po pierwsze: zostać Thornanem w Wikim.C., a po drugie zachowac mój "dorobek"? Serdecznie pozdrawiam i Ciebie i enJerzego --Jerzy (talk) 17:57, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Błędne kategorie i lansowanie swojej wersji historii[edit]

Dzień dobry. Zgłosiłem właśnie dwa poniższe zagadnienia do admina "Sfu", wiem że nikt nie przebywa tu "non-stop" i dlatego proszę o zwrócenie uwagi na poniższe także innych polskojęzycznych adminów. pozdr

Category:Personifications of Poland[edit]

W tej kategorii jako 3 i 4 plik znajdują się plakat niemieckich nazistowskich władz okupacyjnych w Polsce i propagandowy plakat niemiecki z okresu plebiscytu na G. Śląsku - żaden z nich nie jest ani personifikacją ani też symbolem Polski tylko propagandystycznym narzędziem twórcy plakatu. Pliki 6,7,8,9 są znaczkami pocztowymi Generalnej Gubernii - wymowa ideologiczna tych znaczków to "Goralenvolk - Germanie" i blonwłosi Polacy to potomkowie "Germanów". Przypisujący te pliki do owej kategorii (jako użytkownik zalogowany wielonickowiec z pacynkami i IP) wielokrotnie sprawił już sporo kłopotów na wiki.pl, wiki.en i wiki.de stosując własne "prawdy" oparte na "źródłach" pseudonaukowych. Zwróciłem mu kilka razy uwagę, niestety spotkałem się z agresją i obrazą. Bardzo proszę o zwrócenie uwagi na przytoczone przeze mnie przykłady.

Category:Polish areas annexed by Soviet Union[edit]

Dotyczy tego samego użytkownika co wyżej. [1], [2] i [3] dokonał kolejnego revertu wg własnej wizji historii. Obszary te po ataku na ZSRR nigdy nie zostały zaanektowane przez III Rzeszę, zawsze miały status obszarów zajętych (po niemiecku Besetzte Gebiete). Użytkownik nie widzi różnicy pomiędzy "okupacją a aneksją", "Besetzung a Annexion", "Military occupation a Annexation" i świadomie wprowadza sfoją wersję historii opartą na fałszu. Obawiam się, że niestety jest to czubek przysłowiowej góry lodowej i pod swoimi wieloma nickami "zasiał" na commonsie więcej takich "kwiatków". 77.187.26.183 12:09, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Tsarnaev maps[edit]

Hi, I can see the maps are (to be) deleted. I guess the fact that I created them in good faith does not help. :P

I was assuming that using a screenshot of a Google map and making the rest - the much bigger part - of it myself would be fair use (actually, both were accepted by some editor with reviewer rights). Wouldn't it be?

If it is not, how about making a similar map using OpenStreetMap?

"Nowe reguły" wprowadzane przez użytkowników zza Odry[edit]

Dobry wieczór. Czy mogłabyś temu userowi (Lienhard Schulz) wytłumaczyć żeby przestał wstawiać pod arboretum Wirty kategorię West Prussia ? Ostatecznie pod takimi historycznymi kategoriamii miały znajdować się tylko pliki historyczne z przed 1918/19 oraz historyczne mapy, herby i flagi a nie kompletne kategorie obejmujące komplet mediów. Wielokrotnie usuwałem już takie kategorie z kategorii polskich dworców, kościołów, zamków, pałacy itd ... niestety zawsze znajdzie się jakiś "wieczniewczorajszointeligentniejszy" zza Odry. Dla kategorii obiektów i instytucji nieruchomych (jaką bez wątpienia jest Arboretum Wirty) obowiązuje przecież współczesne kryterium geograficzne a nie epizod z okresu zaboru pruskiego w XIX wieku. Podobne dziwolągi tworzy user (Thoma) patrz tu przypisując je ostatecznie pod ... dwory w Niemczech i Siedliska arystokratyczne w Niemczech ... gdyby to robił tylko z plikami historycznymi z przed 1918/19 lub 1945 to "pal sześć" ale on podwiesza pod to całe kategorie (patrz np. tu dwór Sierakowskich w Waplewie Wielkim, Pałac w Krokowej, dwór obronny w Grocholinie na Pałukach itd..). Dzięki z góry za ewentualną pomoc. pozdr. 80.171.35.18 16:13, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Pliki na Commons[edit]

Dzień dobry. Pomóż, proszę, w tej sprawie. W dniu 17 października 2014 otrzymałem zgodę na opublikowanie dwóch zdjęć "File:Janusz Indulski.jpg" i "File:Henryk Rafalski.pdf" (Ticket#2014101510003325 - Zgoda na publikowanie zdjęć prof. Indulskiego i Rafalskiego). Wykorzystałem te zdjęcia w Janusz Indulski i Henryk Rafalski.

Na mojej stronie Wikimedia Commons, widnieją jednak ciągle uwagi „Ten plik może zostać usunięty”, pomimo moich prób porozumienia się z autorami tych uwag. Wolałbym, aby te pliki istotnie nie zostały usunięte. Pozdrawiam, Stanisom (dyskusja) 21:34, 23 gru 2014 (CET)

File:Kohl Watzinger white synagogue in Capenaum (1916).jpg[edit]

Cześć. Mam prośbę o usunięcie pierwotnej wersji ilustracji File:Kohl Watzinger white synagogue in Capenaum (1916).jpg. Omyłkowo wysłałem błędny plik (wersja: 20:52, 27 gru 2014) i później wstawiłem poprawną (wersja 21:05, 27 gru 2014). Jacek555 (talk) 21:10, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Prośba o skasowanie[edit]

Cześć. Mam prośbę o skasowanie pliku, który dzisiaj umieściłem na Commons File:Ochotona iliensis (sketch).jpg. Pobierając go ze strony http://eol.org/pages/124604/overview błędnie odczytałem BY-NC-SA jako CC-BY-SA. Po załadowniu pliku zorientowałem się jakie jest faktyczne pznaczenie grafiki.
