Eunice Rivers & Eugene Dibble

Hello. About Eunice Rivers.jpg [1] and Eugene Dibble.jpg [2], I made the spanish translation from [3] and found there these images. Before I uploaded them to commons I found this web [4] where you can read Here are some of the individuals and artifacts associated with the history of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. (compiled by H. Brody; photo credits: US Public Health Service; Tuskegee University Archives). As long as the images are US government material, I thought it was possible uploading them to wikipedia commons. Did I made a mistake? What can I do to avoid deletion?--Lamarmota (talk) 01:09, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

done. --Martin H. (talk) 13:03, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi! Again me

i found it: explains about the images and the doubtful image as the VMAs is. That sounds logic. Thanks! -- 00:21, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

I reviewd this prior to my deletion request. Still a large portion of the uploads is already identified as a lie. --Martin H. (talk) 00:22, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Which one of them? -- 01:41, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
See deletion request. --Martin H. (talk) 01:43, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
He says: And Luana? I'm gonna be honest, I don't believe that image belongs to her, the VMA's one. I met her in a forum, and I know nothing about her and she even has an account in american wikipedia, so why haven't she upload the image herself? So... And John promised me he will send VMA's pics, about the VMA, the deleted picture. -- 18:23, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I read it. Hey, Im suspicious about the images and i already did a lot of research - enough i think. I started a deletion request to discuss it because i was unable to solve it on my own, I dont started the request to have this discussed on my talkpage again and again without new arguments. The user lied (!) more than once and i dont trust him any more, no matter what he said. Thats my position AFTER reviewing all proofs I have acess to including the talkpage you now repeating here except the OTRS ticket I cant see. Thank you. --Martin H. (talk) 19:23, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Template categories and HotCat.js

Hi. You may have learned this all ready but adding categories to templates via HotCat.js is a bad idea. You should always do it manually so that the category can be placed inside noinclude tags. Rocket000 (talk) 00:56, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Which template? --Martin H. (talk) 01:10, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Ah, i already saw, a custom license tag. Of course i know, i cleaned exactly this up for some other templates ;) --Martin H. (talk) 01:11, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Ok, just wanted to make sure. ;) Cheers, Rocket000 (talk) 01:28, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Basque people.png

What happen with this file. Something wrong?? This picture has been removed from many languages. How to put them back on line at once?? --Zorion (talk) 12:32, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

see Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#Revision_deletion, im doing my best do undo Commons Delinker. --Martin H. (talk) 12:33, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
By the way: the file is a mess of random people, it should concentrate on people who at least speake one word of the basque language. --Martin H. (talk) 12:34, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
9/28 of them didn't speak a word of Basque language. I'll add a basque speaking person at the removed image and change 1 or 2 others. We cannot bypass Basque diaspora. --Zorion (talk) 12:56, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
done. Thank you, especialy for the replacement of the blank space. If you need the old reviosion to make a clean replacement (black frame) please ask me and i will temporary restore it. --Martin H. (talk) 12:59, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Category:Images from LIFE Photo Archive, location South Africa

Hi, Martin. The images are obvious copyvios and should be deleted. I updated their description pages. As a general rule, any post-1939 image from the LIFE Photo Archive is almost certainly non-free. Regards. --BomBom (talk) 13:36, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

done, thanks again for the help. --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)


Hi! Is it better that way? if it must be modified, please tell me before mark it for deletion. Danke schön! --Willtron (talk) 21:43, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

done. --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)


Hi, I'm not sure how to change it, but the image in question is just an upgrade of the previous one. The Three added images are taken from the Wikipedia pages from the people in question, except for Asim Ferhatovic, for which copyright was never stated (the image is quite old).

done now. --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Commons Picture of the Year competition

Hi Martin, would you do me a favour? We need to announce the opening of voting for the POTY final in various places. Would you mind placing a German translation of this notice somewhere suitable on the de Wikipedia, please? You may need to tweak the link by adding an extra "Commons:" so that it links back properly to the relevant page here. Many thanks. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 17:37, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

POTY barnstar 1 2008.svg

The finalists have been selected! Vote in the 2008 Commons Picture of the Year competition.
The final voting round to select the 2008 Picture of the Year is open now. Voting closes 23:59 UTC 30 April (Thursday).

I asked for mentioning of the POTY on Wikipedia w:de:Projekt:Hauptseite, banners are discouraged at the german Wikipedia. But if you plan some other thing, maybe shown up only for the usergroup "Sichter" (people who can flag revisions and fulfill the conditions by default: 200 edits, 60 days) you can copy it to the "Vorlage:" namespace. --Martin H.

Rihanna Images


i uploaded 2 images from User:Vitorvicentevalente, 'couse he doesn't know how to do this. He told me that both images were taken by him. so i uploaded then in PD:user.

what is wrong with this?

thanks and sorry for my poor english,

tales.ebner 22:21, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Even without the user having to request the upload done, he offered that do not want him pay for it. Moreover, I still do not see where the photos are "unfree" , because the advice they gave me was taking pictures on top of tables to objects and thus there was no problem ... In addition, issues of Commons are addressed here, please not use the Wikipedia for handling such matters. Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 01h23min de 23 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)
Sorry for this, i agree with you if you were talking about "Rihanna_album_-_Good_Girl_Gone_Bad.jpg" picture, but the other one has no albun in evidence that shows a derivated work.
i really gave him an advice and i propose these uploads. but i still think that the file "Rihanna album - various.jpg" can stay here in commons. there are many albuns in the photo and no photography or logo is in evidence. i can't see any album clearly in the photo.
i have a history here to upload only images made by myself that i put in public domain. i trusted him and if no evidence that the images are stolen were found, he is not guilt.
so please, let the "Rihanna album - various.jpg" stay in here. i'll talk with him to take some new free photos. and before upload them here, i will show you to ask if there is some problem. ok?
one time more, sorry for my english.
tales.ebner 03:28, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
you are right, there is a watermark in the photo. i will talk to him.
thanks again,
tales.ebner 04:08, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
The other image without the mount was very poor, so I took other photos ... 1 2 3 4 What do you think? Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 22h35min de 23 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)
All 4 are not ok, they are not Commons:De minimis, the purpose of the images is to show the cover, the cover is not staffage. --Martin H. (talk) 21:37, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Hamburger Hafen

Hallo Martin, da du mir schon im Forum geholfen hast gehe ich mal davon aus das du mir auch hier helfen kannst, vorausgesezt du willst :-)...geht das nur mir so, oder hängt das obige Bild Meilenweit in den Text hinein und das anscheinend schon seit 2008? ...ich schaffe zwar das Bild kleiner zu machen, aber irgendwie sieht das dann auch nicht so toll aus, und wie man die Bilder dann evtl noch verschieben kann habe ich bisher noch nicht herausgefunden *g*...naja, kannst dir ja mal bei Gelegenheit anschauen..mfg Diether (talk) 17:07, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Diether, gerne helfe ich, ich weiß aber nicht was du genau meinst. Bei mir wird das Bild sowohl im IE also auch im Firefox so angezeigt. Es drückt also den eigentlichen Inhalt der Kategorie nach unten. --Martin H. (talk) 17:35, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi...ich benutze ebenfalls Firefox (v2.0.0.14) allerdings wird bei mir der Inhalt der Kategorien nicht nach unten gedrückt, sondern die kompletten Einträge unter den Buchstaben K L M werden von dem Bild überdeckt ( sieht also ziemlich schlecht aus), die anderen Beträge stehen dementsprechend links neben dem Bild bzw. darunter....An welcher einstellung kann das liegen (Vista, Firefox, irgendwelche Addons??) mfg Diether (talk) 19:40, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Sollte jetzt Browserunabhängig gleich sein, habe aus der de.wikipedia die w:de:Vorlage:Absatz verwendet, die bewirkt dass Bilder in den nächsten Absatz rutschen. --Martin H. (talk) 19:44, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Ha...genial...und unglaublich schnell ! Jetzt funktioniert ist schon viel besser *freu* denn noch frohes schaffen..mfgDiether (talk) 19:50, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

OTRS invitation

About the Images i Have Uploaded

Hi martin, sorry i have uploaded those images, it's because i need to use them, how do i upload without being a copyright?

done, answered. --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)


Excuse my insistence, but I am trying to highlight an article in the Portuguese Wikipedia. See these photos ... [5] and [6]. What do you think? Please, reply on my talk page Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 20h44min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

God, there are many "valente" ... But I ask a friend to upload if necessary, the first image was a picture of another wikipedian and he sent me on msn. Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 21h09min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

And this one [7] =P Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 21h13min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

Seriously, you think this picture [8] was the user who took the photo? Furthermore, I have the dvd of the show, I can very well have taken the photo... Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 21h19min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

So what is the question for me? This is called discrimination ... I took this picture right now [9]. What is the problem with it now? Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 21h30min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

"O.M.Gees photo is taken during the concert..." How do you know that? I can claim I took this picture [10] , also during a concert ... And if you do not agree, it is discrimination. Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 21h38min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

What if I take pictures from the TV? If I upload this picture what can happen? I only ask because the Portuguese Wikipedia is nothing without pictures, and of course I do not believe that another user has taken the picture at the concert, because the perspective of the photo ... Sorry, I'm being boring I know. Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 21h47min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

When we want to highlight articles and images we have, some users do not see the excellence of the article. See [11]. What happens if I uploaded this picture? Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 22h01min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

Only say that because I know that in Portugal, but I can well have seen the concert, in addition to the other user not sure whether the picture during the concert, or you believe it, there is the prospect that the photo was taken ... So even if I upload it, you delete ... i give up ... Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 22h22min de 28 de Abril de 2009 (UTC)

done, finaly? --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Photo copyright


Hi Martin

I see your point. The photo was taken by Kevin Burns during one of my film productions. As part of our working agreement, all work performed during a film production become the property of the film's copyright holder. That's me.

Yes, please feel free to delete duplicate photos.

I do not have a better quality image of the photo you requested.

Thanks for the help. I'm a nubbie and still learning about the process and standards.

the short explanation:

i'm trying to sort out the "wittig"s (at least, as german photrographer(s)); i've constructed a heirarchical cat system for this purpose. wittig ddr should probably be a sub-category of wittig germany, however i am not sure how many wittigs there are in our collection of photographers. i'm trying to tidy it up, as i go along...

i shall place wittig ddr inside wittig germany for now, tho i'm not completely sure yet, if thats the right way to organize it. (or if the post-ddr wittig is the same person)

(btw; wittig isn't that common, even in germany, & it's rather rare elsewhere; i am a wittig (possibly related to one of the east german photographers in our collection) & there are only approx 6 wittigs listed in my region. total population 150,000, with a significant number of german descent)

separately, i am writing a draft proposal for a technical merit award system, if you're interested, i am always looking for feedback/suggestions/help with the idea.

Lx 121 (talk) 01:09, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

done, its still a very unusual categorization. I dont understand the purpose of the second one, in case this is targeted on honoring users: Commons is not a competition. --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)



I'm sorry for asking you a favor but you're the only one I know over here who knows what to do. I replaced by hand File:Nortasun.gif 50px by File:Nortasun.png Nortasun.png in all languages except in German language where an IP cannot edit. Would mind to help me out with this and delete File:Nortasun.gif after this. Thank you. --Zorion (talk) 20:09, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Done as requested, of course IPs can edit the german Wikipedia, but their edits are not shown until an reviewer reviews the new version of the article (stable versions). Also the basque article is protected because of vandalism. --Martin H. (talk) 20:24, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

OTRS images

It looks like the user just selected random images from Flickr and applied the OTRS I had received for images I uploaded. Unless s/he actually received the authors' permission for the various images, it looks like those images will have to be deleted. Let me know if you need further information from me. Happy editing! --Nehrams2020 (talk) 08:12, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

hiello again;

i am unclear on the status of the poty2008 confirmed vote count on this file:


5 votes 4 confirmed; does this mean that one of the votes was invalidated, or is the checking incomplete?

Lx 121 (talk) 02:00, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

One vote was invalid, the voter did not fulfill the criterias. See the votelist Commons:Picture of the Year/2008/Finalists/File:Colibri-thalassinus-001-edit.jpg. --Martin H. (talk) 02:03, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Need your opinion

Hello Martin!

You have tagged this file on 17 April 2009 as not properly sourced. I agree with that. Then an IP removed this tag by stating an author. I disagree with that: I have searched the web and found this file as copyrighted on several other pages, including the official airline-homepage ([13], [14], [15], scroll a bit down ), where this name does not appear. This method occured on other file uploaded by User:Fast track. You can check that on his talk page or upload log. In my view copyright violation. Bye, High Contrast (talk) 06:57, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Category:Users by occupation

Hello, noticed you added a couple of other cats to this one. I intended it for occupation in the sense that you would write on a census form. A category for activity on Commons would probably be better for the ones you added. Richard001 (talk) 07:37, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I did not know how to go with this two Flickr categories, i cleaned up Category:User and this two left. Is there a better subcategorie for them? --Martin H. (talk) 11:02, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
done, feel free to revert my edits, im thinking of a better sollution by time. --Martin H. (talk) 16:23, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Images upload

I have uploaded 2 images and I'm not aware of how I should provide the license my profile:

The images are from band pt:The Backbiters and their album pt:The Backbiters - Album.

I don't have their permission, but that wouldn't be a problem. Could you tell me how should I proceed? Both images belong to the band and are used as marketing (they are available in their websites).

File:Taijitu Sun and Moon.PNG

Help please!

Hi Martin,

I'm new to this and needed to urgently contact you re a deletion of a 'free to use' image that I adopted for my logo last year after finding it on the site through wikipedia.

I now find you deleted it in january this year - on finding the link I found this:

00:37, 17 January 2009 Martin H. (Talk | contribs) deleted "File:Taijitu Sun and Moon.PNG" ‎ (Copyright violation)

Please can you let me know asap whether I can still use the image, as I don't want to use it illegally (can't afford trouble!)

Many thanks

Commons delinker

Judging by some of the other users' comments above is commons delinker malfunctioning? It claims you deleted an image as a copywright violation and removed it. But you didn't delete it and it is licenced correctly. What's going on? --Drogonov (talk) 16:04, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Three HMHS Britannic images

Could you go into a little more detail regarding the deletion of these images?

I saw that CommonsDelinker removed these images on the English Wikipedia, and was surprised, because I believed that everything was fine on that front. If nothing else, they're pre-1923, so they ought to be fine, but if I could, I'd like another look at them to make sure and fix if possible. SchuminWeb (talk) 23:35, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

I added source links, [21]. Pre 1923 maybe, but not US. No author, no source that allows to conclude the author (only the given source Maritimequest, which is a website but not the creator), no license and warning templates where removed without improving the license: {{PD-USGov}}, {{ABr}} and {{Insignia}} are the wrong licenses for the images. Infact the image where without permission indication since 1 year. If you can find an author and the author died more then 70 years ago the images can be restored. --Martin H.

Please review this photos [[22]][[23]][[24]]

Copyright seems ok, but one thing (again): See File:Circus-Tour.jpg - always use the largest image from Flickr. --Martin H. (talk) 15:21, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Please rewiew this too [[25]] And What You Mean with always use the largest Image?

I moved this 2nd request to your first post to reduce the number of posts on my talkpage. The image seems also ok, the cropping you made is good, with largest image I mean the following:
Go to the imagepage on Flickr,, klick the loupe (es: la lupa; pt: lupa; pt-bras: lente) above the image and you will come to, select the "original" size. --Martin H. (talk) 15:50, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

RE: File:RihannainManchester.jpg

See Commons:Imagens questionáveis do Flickr and check the entry for MikeARB. You can not know this for every flickr user, you must ask yourself questionable if the Flickr user is the photographer of this image. In this case someone else already found, that this Flickr user is untrusted. --Martin H. (talk) 15:50, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Que saiba, não me lembro de ter encontrado em outro lado as fotos que eu fiz o upload. Para além disso, as imagens têm todas as características da câmara. Quem pensa que é? Deus? Só porque encontrou uma imagem noutro lado, para além disso o mundo cibernauta é mesmo assim, uma das imagens que hospedei no Photobucket para lhe mostrar, já está no Flirck... Mais parece uma perseguição... Devia repensar o seu cargo de admin. Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 19h43min de 9 de Maio de 2009 (UTC)

I dont understand this on the basis of google translation completly, you refering to Photobucket and Flickr - I dont know what you want to show me. The only thing I can say, is that images from this Flickr account are not free according to COM:PS/pt#Termos requeridos de licenciamento. The copyrigth owner must give this required license terms, MiKeARB does not own any copyright. The proof is given in COM:QFI as I said above. This images are not only used elsewhere accidentally, they are copied to Flickr violating copyright. --Martin H. (talk) 19:01, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

E como sabe você isso? Prefere que fale inglês? And as you know it? Persecution? Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 15h34min de 9 de Maio de 2009 (UTC)

Feel free to call it persecution, i call it watching. Im watching some categories and articles, and if a new image appears I check it - thats all the magic. However, your behaviour more and more raise my interest and my concerns, that you didnt learn it so far and that you will never learn it. I assumed good faith after you uploaded a batch of copyright violations in the beginning, please remember this. --Martin H. (talk) 14:42, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Eu chamo perseguição, pois as imagens até têm as características da câmara, detalhe que a outra foto não tem, para além disso a licença já tinha sido confirmada. Quanto aos primeiros uploads, eu não sabia o que era o Commons, ainda agora, sei o que você quer do Commons e não o que ele é... Enfim, quantas imagens eu carregar, como as últimas mesmo estando correctas, tu apaga-las-ás. Vítor&R™ (Live Your Life!) 17h49min de 9 de Maio de 2009 (UTC)

hello Martin!

i submitted, on the last days, a new image with new copyright tags and attribution license. can you tell me please if it's correct now? or if I have to ask to the author new datas?

the older one [29] should be deleted because is missing copyright information.

thanks for the advice. --Lettrice (talk) 13:11, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Martin. What's up? I'm not here to complain about his blockage. But, don't you think 1 month is a bit 2 much for a newbie. I know he didn't understand anything about what we told him, but I think from now he will pay attention in all those posts and read them carefully. 15 days I think is enough for a first time. Let's us hope he'll understand now. Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 01:11, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Newbie? He uploads copyvio since 2006, see his log, and he still not understand even the basics. The examples I gave him are true, he realy uploaded "All rights reserved" images from various Flickr users under PD-self and the template Flickr no known copyright restrictions. No known copyright restrictions... he maybe dont even know, that something like copyright exists - and this after 3 years. --Martin H. (talk) 02:02, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
p.s.: I would first block him {{copyviouploadindefblock}}, but then I see, that he dont understand what he do, so he only ignores any guides, helps, warnings - but he dont uploaded copyvios in a deceptive way with authorship claims. --Martin H. (talk) 02:06, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. I didn't see his log. I really thought he was a newbie. Yes they are, I agree with you and I read what you explain to him. I did my best so he could understand, but he kept doing those things. Maybe he didn't even read. Well, now he will have a long time to read everything and he has Wiki-pt to ask something and clear his doubts. Thanks for the attention. Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 14:01, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

No problem. Im willingness to review this if he understands the very basics of free content and understand what mistakes he made. --Martin H. (talk) 14:13, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

BTW, the sentence of blockade on his blockade topic is quiet weird. It looks like a mix of Spanish, English and Portugese. There is anyway I can fizx it? I already tried on it's page, but I didn't find the right place.Mizunoryu 大熊猫❤小熊猫 (talk) 15:36, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes, the text "Uploading unfree files after warnings" and "duration" is written by myself using {{subst:blocked|duration|reason}}. This can not be autotranslated. However a standardized usage with "duration=2w, reason=1" would be a good idea. At the moment you can not fix the template but you can edit the inclusion on the users talkpage. --Martin H.

Legolas2186 (talk · contribs)

Hi Martin, i just wanted you to notice that apparently user Legolas have evaded the block by creating a new account, just see this new account was created right away and only images of Lady GaGa have been added:[30], and if you see the the articles for "Poker Face" [31], "Just Dance" [32], or "LoveGame" [33] in the english wikipedia, you will see that user Legolas is the one that placed the new images in the articles, i think is pretty evident, i don't know if this applies for a block in the main wikipedia page considering this user continuously gets defensive and stubborn thinking this articles are his, saying that everything that is added fails because it do not follow the wikipedia policies, well i think this is definatly a violation of rules, i will really appreciatte if you could explain this to a wiki administrator, his actions need to stop, thank you. 05:42, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Checked the edits, evidence is given so User:EdwardCullen will be blocked. The images are ok, except he failed to upload the original imagesize from Flickr - a bot will fix this. Abusing multiple accounts is a block reason, yes, but in this case the edits are not diruptive or anything bad, they are ok, therefore I will not broaden it to Wikipedia. In case you have any prolems on Wikipedia a (harmless) block evasion on Commons is maybe an argument, but not a reason. --Martin H. (talk) 08:31, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

File: Bardo State.jpg

Hi, I uploaded an image of Bardo State, but it seems to have been deleted. I am not really clear about how I can upload a file. I am able to contact the people that own copyright of the picture, and I wonder how I can upload this file without the risk of it being deleted again. I used wikipedia commons, i've sent an e-mail to permissions-commons, but for me it's really confusing how this whole system works, with thousands of 'how to'pages. Could you help me out, please?

Or not

Perhaps it's best to not recommend this page as further reading about fair use. It's a one-sided, opinated, poorly legally based view on why pt.wp should have fair use, mixing image rights with licensing issues, and whatnot. There is on the other hand a documentation page that, albeit a bit outdated, has useful links to discussions and relevant policies.

Thank you so much for all your help lately with pt users, it's really appreciated. Cheers, Patrícia msg 22:00, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Ok. I thought it is better to sent someone to an emotional "voting" that will not lead to anything but make him understand whats allowed and whats not then giving him a legal based text he will not read or not understand. --Martin H. (talk) 22:59, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I understand your reasoning. Cheers, Patrícia msg 19:49, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Rodrigo Rosenberg

you've deleted a free image twice....the image is from a video declaration which was freely distributed in guatemala after the death of the author!! the sole purpose of the author making the video was for the purpose of free distribution..... your claim that the video is copyrigthable material is unreasonable.....

proof of the free distribution
