This picture is from enWiki and it's under GFDL. If you want you can delete it. talk 15:13, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

I didn't know that it was taken from English WP. If the picture was under GFDL, than you need to write that in the Image description because the GFDL requires to name the original author. Anyway, I think the image has been "misstagged" in the English Wikipedia where Fair use might apply to the picture. --Matt314 15:22, 19 February 2006 (UTC)


Hast recht :-( habe ich gestern glatt vergessen. Wollte gerade nachholen aber jemand war schneller :-D Danke! Ciao --Civvi 09:17, 23 April 2006 (UTC)


Matt can you delete my image?--Matteo1993 13:49, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Your images have been deleted by admins of Commons: [1], [2]. --Matt314 14:02, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Image:Mussolini.jpg source[edit]

Okay, I tried to source this image (Image:Mussolini.jpg) but it wouldn't let me edit, it just kept showing the no source tag. Please insert this source in it: [3]. Thanks. en:User:Kinneyboy90

The image has been deleted by now [4], if you feel the deletion was not correct you can contact the admin who deleted the file. Please note that the image was taken from a page that states "all rights reserved" (in German). If you uploaded the file because you assumed it is in the public domain because of age, you need to know that only photos whose creator has been deceased more than 70 years ago are accepted as "PD-old". --Matt314 16:50, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Thnks for your help... i see, this site should be public domain images source but they make things so complicated :( --Cyberpunk 02:57, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Morguefile again[edit]

You posted a message about the image I got from Morguefile, but probably did a mistake on the image name. The problem you pointed was probably about the Image:Angkor-Wat Library-1st.jpg rather than the one you cited.

Please do consider that Image:Angkor-Wat Library-1st.jpg, even downloaded from Morguefile, come with a written agreement from its author, which agreement was quoted on the image's page. In my mind it is no more a Morguefile image but an image from the author. Therefore I come back to an CC attribution licence scheme. --Lozère 17:41, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Please see en:Template talk:MorgueFile for reasons why these files have been deleted. As the image has been deleted now, I cannot tell who uploaded them. If you believe the file was deleted by mistake, please contact the administrator who deleted the file. --Matt314 16:17, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Comment on a picture[edit]

Hello !

I have opened a discussion here because of a change you have done.

Greetings, Djam 15:43, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I personally don't know to what country the plane belongs to, but as I see, there as already been an answer by a different user. --Matt314 16:17, 19 September 2006 (UTC)


Hallo Matt 314, das Bild Image:39bMandylion.jpg habe ich selbst dem Artikel hinzugefügt, nicht Hephaestos le Bancal. Freundliche Grüße. Bonebendz

Image:Schloss Kleinlaupheim.jpg[edit]

Matt, you were right. I did not check the copyright nor the credentials of my sources properly and I do know now that I may be infringing on somebody else's copyright. I am newbie at all this, so call it part of the learning process. My mistake. Therefore, I suggest that you have the following two files deleted:

Merci Ekki01 12:25, 23 September 2006 (UTC)


Sorry. Wiki en users have done that so I supposed it was Ok. You guys can delete stuff fast? --Kimberly Ashton 02:36, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

On en.wikipedia the file might have been allowed as fair use which is not allowed on Commons. The file has been deleted by now. --Matt314 09:44, 24 September 2006 (UTC)


Thank you for nominating the images I uploaded, it's a good tactic for scaring away folks. I wás going to upload my images here so other wikis could use it, but seeing people act all difficult here, I'm reconsidering. Check the updated pages again (references to source found). Servien 14:37, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for providing source information. I left an answer on your talk page. --Matt314 16:43, 8 October 2006 (UTC)



You can disable the autosaving by adding:

nfd_autosave = false;
mnx_autosave = false;

in Special:Mypage/monobook.js somewhere after you include MediaWiki:Quick-delete.js. It's best to include the sitewide copy so that any changes that are made are passed on to you. Thanks, Alphax (talk) 15:48, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Alphax, thanks for your message. I did disable autosave, but I forgot to empty my browser cache... I copied it to my monobook but put the mediawiki page on my watchlist, so I will notice any changes. --Matt314 16:25, 9 October 2006 (UTC)


Hi Matt,

I have noticed for a long time that you are making tons of very useful contributions, helping new users at the COM:HD and on their talk pages, and marking copyvios, not to mention uploads as well. Are you interested in becoming an admin? I think you would benefit the community greatly. If you like, I would be more than happy to nominate you, or self-nominations are also welcome. Let me know.

cheers, pfctdayelise (说什么?) 01:50, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi pfctdayelise! Thanks for the message. I think it would be helpful if I could use the additional functions (e.g. to delete a picture after having moved it or to work on the nsd/nld backlog) and I would accept your nomination. --Matt314 11:26, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Great! :) pfctdayelise (说什么?) 12:20, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Matt, welches Wissen zum Thema Urheberrecht bringst du mit? --Steschke 17:15, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Hallo Steschke, erstmal vorneweg: Ich bin nicht "vom Fach". Allerdings verfolge ich die deutschen WP:UF und Bildrechtsdiskussionen sowie die Diskussionen auf Commons und hoffe, das da einiges hängengeblieben ist. Ich bin in der dt. Wikipedia ja auch schon eine Weile im Bereich Bilder/Bilder ohne Lizenzen tätig, so dass ich mit Hintergründen vertraut bin. Ich hoffe, das reicht dir erstmal als Antwort, wenn nicht, frag einfach nochmal nach! Viele Grüße --Matt314 20:36, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Hatte ich inzwischen auch entdeckt. Danke für die Antwort - reicht schon :-) Gruß --Steschke 20:55, 10 October 2006 (UTC) (PS: Lass dich von Hexen nicht vor deren Karren spannen)


Hallo, Matt314, Danke für Deinen Hinweis, habe die fehlenden Daten bei Image:Moscheeruine bei Borsh (Albanien).jpg hoffentlich richtig ergänzt. Kann man jetzt die Warnhinweise löschen? --Decius 23:14, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Hallo Decius, vielen Dank für das Nachtragen der Daten. Ich habe den Hinweis entfernt, weil er nun ja überflüssig geworden ist. --Matt314 08:10, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments in Lar's recent RfA![edit]

Dear Matt314: I would like to thank you for your support in my recent RfA which passed 20 to 1. I really appreciate the trust you've placed in me. Please help me be a better admin by giving me feedback when you think I need it, and praise when you think I've earned it. Thanks for your support, much appreciated. I wish you all the best in your own RfA and I look forward to working with you. I'm guessing you are around MI somewhere, if we ever have a meetup, count on me buying you a beverage of your choice if you'll share some of your picture taking secrets with me. ++Lar: t/c 04:09, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
I chose LEGO to illustrate my thank you messagess, because LEGO is a system that we build things with. Commons holds the building blocks that other wikis use to make great things. Without Commons images and media, other wikis would be much poorer. Let's help build the greatest freely available intellectual collection the world has ever known... together.

Hungarian Revolution of 1956[edit]

Thanks for the note. Yes, the AHF does hold copyright, and they state on their homepage that these images are offered for download to commemorate the event (which we are doing). Our tag is probably not the most elegant one (I am open to suggestion as to a better one) but its clear that we are allowed to use them for this purpose. I would welcome a suggestion of a better tag, and especially how to fill it in, as the main editors of this page are commons neophytes. Thanks in advance! Istvan 15:39, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Matt, perhaps this may help - please refer to the statement of permission which is given on their 1956 portal -2nd paragraph[5] and they have also explicitly listed wikipedia here [6] (about 45% of the way down on the right, below the TIME magazine cover icon) as one of their coordinated activities (which it is)- that page links directly to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 page on the EnWiki. Please do not delete the images as there is clearly permission, and if there are further issues to be resolved please let me know - I will try to resolve them, as this article (56 revolution) is up for Feature Article Candidate right now and image deletion would be disasterous. Thanks Istvan 21:23, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Hello Matt, we have asked the AHF to provide a statement, but have not heard back from them yet. I am happy to adjust the tags if that would help resolve the issue - hence the request for help - so there are possibly two or three ways of resolution. Can you suggest perhaps a different tag? hosting on the EnWiki? What precise information from the AHF is required for resolution? (when we do hear from them, we need to know exactly what to ask for). Thanks Istvan 07:02, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Matt! I'm an administrator on the English Wikipedia. I was asked on my talk page to help Istvan and other editors to find a proper template. More of them tried to contact the webmasters, but no answers so far. I'm totally sure about that we can use these photos and the webmasters won't have any problem with "the reuse of their files by third parties". If needed, I take the responsibility for these images that we'll get a perfect permission from them in days, just have to get an answer. Removing those photos would ruin the whole FA Candidation, and just 8 days left before the anniversary. Anyway if you could propose a better template as they marked wiki as one of their coordinated activities, it'd be very kind of you. NCurse 08:08, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
Hi Matt, we finally made contact with the AHF who put a statement on (the upper left section of) their portal page [7] (the source of the photos) stating that those photos are public domain. Do we need a different tag then, or will the "Attribution" one do? BTW, Congrats on the Adminship.Istvan 20:05, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Hi Istvan, if the pictures are in the Public Domain, then you can just pick the best fitting tag from Commons:License tags#Public domain. --Matt314 06:45, 18 October 2006 (UTC)


Congratulations! You are administrator now. --EugeneZelenko 14:47, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Well done! Go forth and delete. ;) pfctdayelise (说什么?) 02:22, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
Well done indeed. Now tell how you got that picture of 8 Mile... ++Lar: t/c 05:08, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for your support! --Matt314 06:42, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

About "Av. 0 Cúcuta"[edit]

I took this image with my camera and later I uploaded it to for sharing it in the forums and in the blogs. Now the User:Alhen is saying that is copyrighted.

This is the image...

Can you help me?

If you can, please answer me here. Thanks!

Image:Trondheim monument 5.jpg[edit]

I've rolled back the change you made to Image:Trondheim monument 5.jpg; there is still no source information for the sculpture, only for the photo. Norway has only limitied freedom of panorama for sculpture; commercial use is not allowed without permission from the sculptor. Please check Commons:Freedom of panorama before removing tags from such images. Cnyborg 20:11, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

You are totally right, I forgot about the situation in Norway... This should help! --Matt314 10:39, 4 November 2006 (UTC)


Thanks Matt for your action. There are more instances of "propre travail" to be replaced, see MediaWiki talk:Licenses/fr. TIA, Jastrow (Λέγετε) 09:55, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Je n'ai pas vu qu'il y a cette expression plusieurs fois... --Matt314 10:45, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks again Matt, but you forgot the plural mark in "[Vos œuvres personnelles (conseillé)]" :-) Jastrow (Λέγετε) 10:45, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) tries to intercept a nuclear warhead during its mid-course phase in space

I'd like to suggest to remove the dispensable warning (by using a template) on copyright issues IMMEDIATELY and to be more careful when arguing in order to provoke disputes, OBVIOUSLY.

Ich habe Deinen blamablen Einlassungen einige hoffentlich lehrreiche Antworten erteilt. Darf Dir gleichzeitig empfehlen, künftig auf Provokationen dieser Art zu verzichten, sonst gehen wir in den Clinch - möglicherweise sogar juristisch. Da Du Deutscher bist wie ich, werde ich Dir auf das Leichteste noch ein paar wesentlich durchschlagendere Lektionen erteilen können. - Aloismaierl 13:54, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Ich fordere Dich hiermit ultimativ auf, die Categories: Unknown - November 2006 | Images with unknown source as of 6 November 2006 SOFORT aus den Bildseiten rauszunehmen, sonst lassen wir es KRACHEN. Wenn Du noch einmal anderen Nutzern suggerieren solltest, ich unternähme Rechtwidriges: lass' eine Messe lesen. Oder besser zwei ...- Aloismaierl 14:26, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

I've responded on Aloismaierl's talk page suggesting that this may not be the best heading for discussion. ++Lar: t/c 15:19, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
I've succeeded in hiring a famous artist who not only made sure that there are no longer copyright issues to be debated but also revolutionized the concept of missile defenses itself. Please tell Donald Rumsfeld and Mister Bush about it ...

Exoatmospheric Tomato Vehicle (EKV) tries to intercept a copyright warhead during its mid-course phase in brain

- Aloismaierl 07:13, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, Mr. Rumsfeld won't have any use for it any more, he just steped down from office... Still, the image taken from that space page is copyrighted, and their work has "Schöpfungshöhe". Other admins also consider this image a copyright violation, see here. --Matt314 19:01, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
Plain NONSENSE. The only thing that has "Schöpfungshöhe" (which means: a level of creativity of its own) is the photo composition itself. - 14:48, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
And you are making your statement based on what law? If you doubt this situation, feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or at the German Wikipedia (the users there are more likely to know about "Schöpfungshöhe") at de:WP:UF. --Matt314 19:06, 14 November 2006 (UTC)


Hola Matt314:

Sobre la imagen image:Carlos_Torre_International_Grand_Master_.jpg página en la página fuente dice claramente:

La FIDE le reconoció en 1977 el título de Gran Maestro a Carlos Torre y hurgando en mi disco duro encontré algo para el recuerdo: Una imagen escaneada de su título de gran maestro internacional, firmada –me parece– por el Presidente de la FIDE de ese tiempo, el Dr. y excampeón mundial Max Euwe. (por motivos que no entiendo, llegó a mis manos hace algunos años, y ahora comparto con todos los lectores de esta página).

Aun así, he pedido autorización por correo electrónico, la cual espero obtener pronto.


Hello Matt314,

About the image image:Carlos_Torre_International_Grand_Master_.jpg page at source page, it says clearly:

ahora comparto con todos los lectores de esta página = now I share with all the readers of this page = jetzt teile ich mit allen lesern dieser Seite

Even so, I have requested authorization by e-mail, which I soon hope to obtain.

Hola Limbo@MX C!
Gracias por indicar esta frase, solo "comparto" para mi no indica "GNU FDL"... Compartir quizás significa "presentar", todos puede ver esta imagen, pero uso comercial o distrubución no es permitodo? Por eso necessita un e-mail. --Matt314 18:57, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Hola de nuevo, tengo el e-mail de autorización del autor para licencia GDFL, puedes indicarme como proceder para adjuntar a la imagen esta información.

Hola! Transfiera el e-mail a por favor. Además un usuario del OTRS pondrá el número del ticket en la pagina de la imagen. --Matt314 07:37, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Envié el día 10 de Nov del 2006 e-mail a pero aún no tengo respuesta ni han ligado el mail a la imagen. ¿Que me aconsejas hacer? no me gustaría que borraran la imagen siendo que está autorizada por el autor.

Thanks for restoring the image. I also asked how could I check by myself... Yuval YChat • 09:31, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, I did not complete read the question... To see a deleted image simply go to the page where the image used to be. At the top you will see "View or restore x deleted edits?" Just click there and you will see all deleted revisions. By clicking on any date, you can preview the image and -if necessary- restore them. --Matt314 10:18, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I thought[edit]

I thought Wikipedia was fair use! Gosh..... >_< If we can't upload those files, then why do ya even have that option? OMG...Wikipicky 22:53, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi Wikipicky! Actually some Wikipedias do allow fair use, e.g. the English one. But images uploaded under a fair use rationale always have to go with some content. As Commons is only a media reservoir, the embedding content that fair use images require is missing. Furthermore Commons only allowes free media content, so it is a prerequisite that it is allowed to use media commercially and with modifications. You uploaded the file stating the image was "GFDL" (you checked "GFDL content from English Wikipedia" while uploading) but the image is not released under that license at the English Wikipedia.
It' not been a bis problem, as the file has been deleted. If you want to transfer an image from another Wikipedia to Commons just use the CommonsHelper, it fills in (almost) all necessary fields while uploading. Happy uploading! --Matt314 08:56, 13 November 2006 (UTC)


Ich habe mal eine Frage zu dem Bild Image:PB090036.JPG.Du hast dort einen Baustein eingebaut, wo drauf steht, dass der Autor und die Quelle nicht angegeben wären.Dabei habe ich doch hingeschrieben, das ich das Bild selber Fotografiert habe, und bei Autor habe ich auch meinen Namen stehen.Welche Informationen fehlen den dort noch?Wäre nett wenn du mir sagen könntest, was ich nachtragen muss.Gruß --Hens 18:04, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

beastie boys' image[edit]

~Dear matt314, I remained rather surprised when I saw what you did about this image.Image:Bboysphotonyc.jpg. First, because the b-boys' page has recently entered in the group of the best articles in the italian version of wikipedia, and this problem about the image brings many doubts about its remain in this "class". Then, because it seems very strange, because I think that the permission is clear. So, I do not fully comprehend your request. I've used the same permission for the other beastie boys'images, so you should remove all them! Please make me understand the question better, not because I don't understand English, but for the fact that I'd like to have a clearer explanation. Thank you, Sconvolpi74

Dear Matt, first of all, thanks for the very fast answer that you gave me! Then, I wanted to tell you that I've fully understood the problem. So, I'd like to have some help by you. What can I do for makin' this image totally "free"? If I contact the site www.nastylittleman, what kind of answer (permission) will I have to ask them? Thanks, --Sconvolpi74 14:15, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Ok, matt! I've contacted, about this problem, the other user interested in beastie boys' italian version. I think that he will try to resolve the problem, and he's going to do it, because, at the moment, I'm in troubles. Bye. :-) --Sconvolpi74 23:60, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Dear Matt, I'm the other user interested :)...First of all, I've to tell you that I'm very inexperienced about images, so I've to ask you some help...I don't understand anything about licenses, permissions ecc., so can you tell me what I've to write into the e-mail? If you do that, I won't do disasters :-|...Thank you very much!--BMonkey 13:55, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
Hi Matt! Thanks for your answer...I'm going to use this for my request...tell me your opinion here or here (just where you prefer :)) and thanks a lot!--BMonkey 13:53, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

No cource oder no license...[edit]

Bin gerade beim Aufräumen in den unknown Kategorien. Bin mir ja nicht sicher, aber offensichtlich fügst Du immer dne vollständigen tag ein. das geht dich schneller mit {{subst:nsd}}. Was vor allem den Vorteil hat, dass in den Fällen, wo die Quelle/Lizenz nachgetragen wird man keine Reste des Tags stehen lässt. Grüße -- Rüdiger Wölk 05:07, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Ich dachte, das sei nur aus einer Phase, in der ich mit dem monobook experimentiert habe, ich habe dann wohl die falsche Version behalten. Sollte jetzt repariert sein. Danke jedenfalls für den Hinweis! --Matt314 08:33, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:Uchida Yasuya.jpg[edit]

You have stated that magazine covers are copyvio on Commons and are not allowed. This is not the official policy per Wikipedia, especially with regards to Time Magazine covers, which have their own licensing template "TIME" and are considered FAIR USE, and not in violation of copyright as long as proper attribution is given. There is a complete catagory filled with covers as per "Category:Fair use TIME magazine covers", and Time Magazine covers appear in many individual articles. Please explain.--MChew 07:43, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello !

I up the USGOv tag beacuse, the USSHM is a Government page, and so it is that licence. If it is wroing, tell me in what licence could I upload it ? So that I can change the licence. And tell me why the UFGOV licenc is wrong, and can the pic stay.--Edgar Allan Poe 14:58, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

But the picture could go under PD-Germany, beacuse it is an official 3rd Reich government picture of Hitler. AnI read here on commons that all government pictures are PD. I put the tag PD-Germany also. --Edgar Allan Poe 15:37, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Danke für den Hinweis mit der fehlenden Beschreibung. Ich habe das soeben erledigt. Es handelt sich um das ehemalige Hotel Post in Bad ischl, Oberösterreich. Ursprünglich hatte ich auch eine Ansicht der Hauptfassade hochgeladen und in den Wiki-Artikel (zu finden unter "Bad Ischl/Profanbauten/Hotel Post") gestellt, wo es noch immer ist. Bei der Übersicht meiner Bildern finde ich es aber nicht mehr. Kannst du mir einen Rat geben, wo es hingekommen sein könnte? Liebe Grüße aus Oberösterreich --Dr. Perr 17:54, 3 December 2006 (UTC) Von „“

Copyright on images[edit]

Hi Matt, I've updated the information on the images you noted. Please check if these now make sense. Thanks. Serouj 22:49, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the details, Matt. The Shahan Natalie images are from his book from 1928, which has been republished in 2002. Can a publishing house claim the rights of an author who has passed away and who wrote the book 78 years ago? thanks. Serouj 23:19, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

License question "Crown Copyright"[edit]

On page [8] it says: "All topographic data featured in NZTopoOnline is subject to Crown copyright protection or is licenced to the Crown (DEM data used for hill shading is supplied under licence by GeographX Ltd). You may use, copy and distribute the information extracted from NZTopoOnline in any format or media without charge. However where the data is distributed to a third party, the source, date of extract and copyright of the Crown must be acknowledged eg (NZTopoOnline, extracted July 2002, Crown Copyright Reserved)."

Can such materials be used in Wikipedia, and what license tag is to be used? --Ratzer1 08:28, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Hallo! Ich antworte mal auf Deutsch, geht schneller;) Also ich muss leider zugeben, dass ich mich beim Crown Copyright nicht sonderlich auskenne. Es gab mal einen Lizenzbaustein für neuseeländisches Crown Copyright, Template:NZCrownCopyright, der leitet aber auf Template:Nonderivative weiter (siehe auch Commons:Deletion_requests/Archive/2005/07#Template:NZCrownCopyright). Leider fehlt in dem Copyrighthinweis auf der von dir angegebene Hinweis, dass eben diese abgeleiteten Werke erlaubt sind (You may use, copy and distribute the information extracted from NZTopoOnline in any format or media without charge.) Damit sieht es so aus, als könnten die Bilder leider nicht eingefügt werden, du könntest aber auch eine Anfrage per mail stellen. --Matt314 14:29, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Etiquetando imagen Image:La_Carolina.jpg[edit]

Lo cierto es que es una foto que tengo yo en casa de cuando estudié, de las prácticas de Fotografía aérea. Trabajábamos con el vuelo de 1956. --Pastranec 11:33, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Si tu has tomado este fotografía, puedes añadir "own work". Si es el fotografía del instituto por que es cc-by-sa-2.5? --Matt314 19:39, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

about Image:Maooooto chi.JPG 謝謝您的提醒[edit]

謝謝您的提醒。已經將版權標簽更正。這個圖片是中華民囯陝甘寧邊區政府主席毛澤東在1938年給中華民國國民政府主席蔣中正的一封信的首尾兩頁的照片。根據中華民囯著作权法(2004年)第九条 ,“公务员于职务上草拟之文告、讲稿、新闻稿及其他文书 ”属于公有領域,故此照片的發佈與傳播無版權問題。Thank you for your concern! I have added the correct tag for this picture. This picture is a photo of a letter written by the president of a local gouvernment to the president of the Republic of China in 1938. According to Copyright Law of the Republic of China(The Republic of China still exists and proclaims the sovereignty over all territories of China), this kind of letter is in the public domain. --民國九十五年 13:18, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

謝謝. 我知道中華民國國民的歷史一點點,可是我不知道它的著作权法. 請你再看看Image:Illu24.jpg. 最後還有一個問題關於Image:Huqngg.jpg.這個圖片跟Image:Huangpo.jpg一樣,哪一個你不用? --Matt314 19:39, 18 December 2006 (UTC)
thank you again for your concern! I have added the correct tag for Image:Huqngg.jpg; Image:Illu24.jpg is a cash receipt signed by Mao in 1938, the owner of this receipt is the Third Communist Internationa. I am not sure which copyright tag shall be added beacause the communist international has ceased to exist for more than 60 years, anyway,I donn't think anyone will claim the copyright for this staff. Please help me to add a correct tag for it! (These pics have been used in the biograpthy of Mao and Chiang in WIKI chinise )--民國九十五年 03:32, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
I deleted the one duplicate, do you know who wrote Image:Illu24.jpg, I'm unable to read the text. --Matt314 22:46, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
thank you. The text is in Russian, it was probably written by a russian agent sent to china by the Comintern --民國九十五年 00:26, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

  • I've talked to him, he's also a wikipedian, because of oher pictures and he agreed with this licence for wikipedia. --PedroPVZ 21:20, 18 December 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for the answer! In case you have a written permission for example on some Wikipedia talk page or an email you should link the permission statement or forward it to COM:OTRS respectively. --Matt314 22:28, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Deleted pictured[edit]

Hi, I think I tagged the picture as "own work" as I took the screenshot in my computer (from a free/open source program).

I will try to upload the image again and tag it correctly. --Dem 18:44, 20 December 2006 (UTC)


Dear Matt can you move Image:Wiktionary-logo-fa01.png to Image:Wiktionary-logo-fa.png made the changes asked on the image cleanup.--مجید 15:17, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Moved the image and deleted the duplicate. --Matt314 16:10, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Image:Stadio Ennio Tardini.jpg[edit]

Caro Matt, questa foto è stata ricavata dal sito PARMAITALY.COM srl. Via Furlotti 3C 43100 PARMA - ITALY Tel:+39-0521-483435 - Fax:+39-0521-482767 - P.iva 01956030348 - Iscriz. Cam.Comm. 194162/1996 PARMA che ne detiene la concessione del Copyright. Nel loro sito è chiaramente riportato che la riproduzione delle loro foto è consentita ai siti Internet citando la fonte e attivando il link, cosa che ho eseguito nella pagine descrittiva della foto.

Per sicurezza ho anche scritto all'amministrazione del sito detentore del Copyright ( per chiedere un autorizzazione scritta per pubblicare su Wikipedia le foto presenti nella loro sezione Parma che cambia, secondo le modalità da me eseguite. Il giorno 30/12/2006 ho ricevuto dall'amministratore del sito detentore del copyright (sig. Dino Baroni) l'autorizzazione a pubblicare le foto su Wikipedia.

Purtroppo non saprei quale tipologia di licenza utilizzare (ti chiedo cortesemente di chiarirmi questo aspetto) ma credo che la pubblicazione di immagini ricavate da sia, a questo punto, assolutamente legale ed autorizzata rispettando le condizioni di utilizzo specificate.

Grazie per la tua collaborazione ed i tuoi chiarimenti (se possibile in italiano o francese)--Lex2 17:55, 30 December 2006 (UTC).

Translation from Italian:

Dear Matt, this photo is taken from PARMAITALY.COM s.r.l. [...] which is copyright holder.
In their site it is clearly stated that reproduction of the photos is allowed on Internet sites as long as is supplied as the source, and the link activated, which I did on the picture description page.
for additional safety I also asked the administrator of the site which holds the copyright ( for the explicit authorization to use on Wikipedia the pictures on their site in the section Parma che cambia the way I've already done. On 12, dec 2006 the admin (Mr. Dino Baroni) replied with the authorization to publish the pictures on Wikipedia.
I don't know which license to use (I'd be glad if you could clarify me on this point), but I think publishing here the photos from is entirely legal and authorized respecting the established terms of use.
Thank you for your support and clarifications (in Italian or French if possibile).

Matt, I'd suggest you to reply him in French, as he asks. Bye --ColdShine 15:11, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
By the way, on the image description page he quotes the license from the source web site, "E' consentita ai siti Internet la riproduzione delle fotografie citando la fonte e attivando il link.", which translates to "Reproduction of the photos is allowed as long as a link to the source is supplied and the link activated.". Lex2 states he followed this procedure, so this would seem to be the procedure requested by the copyright holder in order not to violate the license. --ColdShine 15:17, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
J'ai répondu sur User talk:Lex2. --Matt314 19:34, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Merci pour ta réponse Matt et merci a ColdShine pour la traduction. Je comprend le problème de la libre utilisation. Je vais écrire à nouveau au détenteur du Copyright pour lui demander si cela est possible. Je suis désole de ne pas maîtriser aussi bien le règles et le fonctions de wikipedia mais j’espère que mes contributions puissent aider ce projet à se développer au mieux. Happy new year 2007 à tous le monde :) !!! --Lex2 10:51, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Rien à faire! L'administrateur de veut bien me donner l'autorisation a publier ses photos sur wikipedia mais il ne peut pas les rendre de domaine publique pour d'autre éventuels sites utilisateur. Tant pis. Dans ce cas je pense que cette image peut bien être supprimé. Merci pour ton aide et tes explications et excuse moi pour le malentendu occasionnè.Bye --Lex2 17:44, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Matt, folgende Lizenzfrage: Auf meine E-Mail-Anfrage "...I have been looking for a photo of ..., preferably in public domain or with 'creative commons' license to publish and distribute freely. I found this one: ... Please advise me about the copyright status of this image. If necessary, please put me in contact with the copyright owner." erhielt ich folgende Antwort per E-Mail: "You may use any photo shown on (soon to be ) as long as proper credit is given to the person who provided the photo (in this case John Baxter) , AND to /" Mit welcher Lizenz können diese Fotos in der Wikipedia verwendet werden?--Ratzer1 13:50, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi Matt, I have been contacted by this user after I left him a {{nld}} notice. He's a German speaker and while I can read German, I'm quite incapable of writing more than two words. Could you please explain to him how things work (as far as correctly tagging pictures goes, that is)? TIA. Happy New Year to you, Jastrow (Λέγετε) 16:29, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi Jastrow, I left this user a message on his talk page to ask him to add source information for his pictures or to ask me if there are any more questions. Bonne année! --Matt314 19:34, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Image:Claudio Arrau.jpg[edit]

Thanks, sincerely by your notice. I believe that already is ready; was forgot me to place that its author died over 70 years ago. It so happens that, recently I am learning aqui. PD: tragicamente, al escribir estas lineas se me borró todo un articulo que estaba escribiendo paralelamente- en wikipedia. Ahora nadie se hace responsable por toda la información que tendré que reestablecer.--Daga 22:11, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Ok. There is not because to thank, I deberia to thank you, since has had a pleasing one (and comprehensive action). I yes am user in wikipedia and but that nothing I utilize this nick to rise necessary images. PD: forgive my badly groins, but as we say in Chile: "with effort he is learned"--Daga 01:50, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Jerzy Prokopiuk[edit]

Hallo, du hast das von mir hinaufgeladene Foto Prokopiuk2 geloescht und Alpax hat mir geschrieben, dass er auch das Foto Prokopiuk1 loeschen wird, denn die von mir gewaehlte Lizenz ist falsch. Ich habe eine Erlaubnis von dem Urheber per Email bekommen. Ich kenne sogar den Mann persoenlich und du kannst ueber ihn in der deutschen Wikipedia unter lesen. Welche Lizenz sollte ich also waehlen? Humanista-pl 23:07, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Ist das jetzt gut: Image:Prokopiuk1.jpg ?

Frage zur Veröffentlichung von Pressefotos[edit]

Hallo Matt314! Du sagtest, wenn ich Fragen zu diesem Lizenzstreit um die Bilder von sjhenkel.jpg und sjhenkel2.jpg hätte, könnte ich mich vertrauensvoll an Dich wenden ... ;-) Aaaalso: Jemand behauptet, die mir von der Plattenfirma gegebene Lizenz zähle nicht - der Fotograph müsse die Lizenz geben. Aber hat der die Rechte überhaupt noch? Spot Music haben mir geschrieben, sie hätten die Rechte. Und Sony, von denen ich die Lizenz für "Baiba Skride"-Pressefotos bekommen habe, sagt mir nur, ich solle die Bilder mit einem Credit für den Fotograf und Sony versehen. Dann sei das o.k.! Verstehe ich das jetzt richtig, dass das für Wikipedia noch lange nicht o.k. ist und dass ich zusätzlich zu der Erlaubnis von Sony auch noch die von dem Fotografen brauche? Oder gar nur diese? So langsam verstehe ich, warum die meisten Wikiartikel zu Künstlern keine Bilder haben :-[ Vielen Dank für Deine Hilfe! --Edward.Hopper 20:38, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Meine Bilder[edit]

Ich habe zwei Bilder hinaufgeladen, die mir nicht mehr gefallen, deshalb moechte ich sie loeschen. Koenntest du sie loeschen? Das sind sie: Dies auch: Image:IMG 0009.JPG, denn es gibt schon Image:Gimnazjum w Raszynie.JPG Humanista-pl 12:21, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
