Copyright Violations[edit]

Hi I am Nima Farid the creator of Tehran expressways map and Seals of Abadeh. I wrote the sources of those maps and I'll write it for you to know: As I said in the summery of the maps I downloaded the File:TehranBlank.PNG but this photo was deleted by User:Otourly. Then I showed the Expressway on the map of Tehran and I uploaded it and I mentioned the source. For seals of Abadeh: This file:File:Abadeh seal.jpg: I took the picture by my own mobile phone Nokia 3500c and if you don't believe it I can send you my mobile phone's picture to you. And File:Seal of Abadeh.png I draw this picture by Paint by putting the last photo in front of myself. So I demand you to delete the deleting Template but you can delete other Shahrdari Signs.

Hey, These photos were obtained from VOA, is it violating any laws if we upload pictures obtained from that film? These paintings were shown in that film as put at the corner of his workshop.

حذف پرونده‌ها در ویکی انبار[edit]

درود. من تعدادی از تصاویر کار خودم را در ویکی آپلود کردم که قبلا در سایت پانورامیو (گالری دوم)آپلود کردم و بعضا به صفحه اون عکس در پانورامیو لینک دادم . بعضی از عکسها به عنوان اثر شخصی در ویکی آپلود کردم و بعضی با مجوز کریتیو کامانر و لینک به عکس. در صفحه گالری در سابت پانورامیو هم مجوز لازم گذاشتم. مدتی قبل با وجود این که با ایمیلی که در گالری پانورامیو به عنوان ایمیل صاحب اثر گذاشتم به ویکی ایمیل زدم که نشون بده صاحب اثر هستم ولی باز هم عکس که نگاره برگزیده هم بود حذف شد. امروز هم چند مورد دیگه از عکسهای شخصی فاقد مجوز مناسب معرفی شده که یکی از آنها نگاره برگزیده است. لطفا برای حل این مشکل راهنمایی کنید.

Salaam Alaykom. I'm trying to get in touch with so that they can fix the alleged problems and we can use the pics in commons. Although most of the pics are now useable here, I'm trying to make it completely useable! I followed the pages discussing the problems of this website and found some points which should be fixed. For example, some of their pics were borrowed from other sources! and some of them were TV screen shot. The major problem, as was mentioned in those various long discussions, were not mentioning the authors and/or creators. So my questions are as such:

  • How can fix this problem considering the fact that some of the photographers are really unknown and the pics date back to almost 30 years ago?
  • Does the fact that is a subsection of governmental organizations changes its copy right rules? How?
  • What else do you think should be done to make the site completely useable? Thanks Mhhossein (talk) 03:49, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi! I tried to contact them on 08-13-2014 by email and their own contact form but they did not answer.
  • If photographer is unknown, there must be a proof of publication in 30 years ago. According to Iranian copyright laws, just being taken 30 years ago will not grant us the right to use it.
  • It won't matter. Because, unlike United States, we do not have a different copyright law for governmental offices.
  • The version of GFDL must be included in the license, for example GFDL 1.2 or GFDL 1.3. Because they have substantial differences which are really important.

Lock 18

With this file you uploaded, I figured out which lock that lock is: it is Lock 18 in Great Falls. Compare that photo with modern photos, and it's lock 18.

I put a little thing on the category so the sort order it comes out with other pictures of Lock 18, but it may be good to rename the file so that 18 appears in the file name.

Neat pic, though. Thanks!

عکاسی در آتلیه‌ها[edit]

سلام. نظرتان راجع به حق نشر عکس‌هایی که در آتلیه‌ها در ایران گرفته می‌شود، چیست؟ حقوق متعلق به عکاس است یا سفارش‌دهنده؟

نظر خانم سوره صادقی آن است که متعلق به سفارش‌دهنده است.

سوم- عکاسی سفارشی از جمله در آتلیه‌های عکاسی یا توسط عکاس‌های آتلیه‌ها در مراسم‌ها و… در این مورد طبق قانون فعلی ایران (۱۳۴۸)، سفارش دهنده (=مشتری) دارنده کپی‌رایت به حساب می‌آید. 4nn1l2 (talk) 16:06, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

@4nn1l2: سلام بر امیر، از آنجایی که قانون حق تکثیر در ایران در مورد چنین مواردی (همچون بسیاری از موارد دیگر) سکوت کرده، می‌شود آن را مصداقی از سفارش (مشمول ماده ۱۳ قانون) به‌شمار آورد. اما به نظرم این ادعا که:
  1. سفارشی در میان بوده و
  2. بر طبق قرارداد آن سفارش این اثر ایجادشده و
  3. بر طبق همان قرارداد، تمام حقوق مادی اثر به سفارش‌دهنده منتقل‌شده
بدیهی نیست و نیاز به اثبات‌دارد. -- Meisam (talk) 19:47, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Meisam, I'm doing it for the overall quality and sake of Commons. Not especially for you. If you would categorize one image properly, instead of thanking me having done that for you, it would be much more contribution to commons. See e.g. for images uploaded by you, needing your check and having coordinates (which makes it rather simple to find the objects on the maps). best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 09:05, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

@Herzi Pinki: I really appreciate your hard works. Consider those thanks for all the other good works you do for in Commons! I'm trying hard to keep up with categorizing the images I've uploaded. I have put all of them in a clean-up category and use the watchlist to keep track of them. But it is always nice to see other people helping too. Thanks again.

Squirrel files[edit]

I wanted to get your input on requesting renaming of those files you uploaded that have odd names. It looks like the person on Flickr actually gave the squirrels human names but those don't really translate well to file names and having something like File:'Belinda' (15262390078).webm or File:'Samantha' Drops in for Breakfast (11025374995).jpg be about squirrels seems a little confusing to me. Thoughts? --Majora (talk) 21:29, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

@Majora: I see your point. I always try to respect the photographers’ preferred names as a symbol of appreciation for their works. But in this case, adding a descriptive tag to the start of the names (i.e. File:Squirrel - 'Belinda' (15262390078).webm or something similar) may not be a bad idea.
BTW, for a light discussion on the subject of naming the animals please take a few minutes to watch John Oliver’s Interview with Dr. Jane Goodall. Thanks for your helps! -- Meisam (talk) 21:55, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
Or adding "(squirrel)" to the names may be another option! It looks like most of the times the animal names have single quotations around them and the zookeepers are named without quotation marks (e.g. File:'Anthony' and Katie (7888228344).jpg). But not all the time (File:'Chick please, Matt' (5563409079).jpg)! -- Meisam (talk) 21:49, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Anything more identifiable than human names would probably be ok. I just don't see anyone being able to find those images unless they were looking through the category first. And even then, naming them after people is not indicative of what is actually being displayed. --Majora (talk) 01:47, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
@Majora: If anyone use the search function, it will include the filename, file description, and its categories. IMO anything general about what is being displayed should be a category and unique features should be in the description of the image. I think we need more specific categories for these animals. Cheers! -- Meisam (talk) 11:05, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Categories for aircraft files[edit]

Good afternoon Meisam. Recently, somebody asked you to "Hi Meisam, please give useful categories to the images you upload." Maybe you have not worked very much with aircraft files before.

In this edit you only added the "Category:2015 at London Oxford Airport", which is correct, of course.

However, the single most import category for an aircraft is "type", because it is the only one which is never going to change in the life of an aircraft (and therefore a kind of "grand parent" cat). Everything else may change during all the years in which pictures of this aircraft are taken: the registration, the operator/airline, the colour, and of course the locations and years referring to the individual file (picture).

Therefore, I kindly ask you to never the ""XXX Airport by year"-category only. Please always add the "Aircraft at XXX Airport" cat, and - just if you happen to know it - instead the sub-cat "Aircraft at London Oxford Airport by aircraft type" together with the correct type of aircraft. In this example the file finally ends up in Category:Bombardier Challenger 604 at London Oxford Airport. You don't have to create a new category if it's not yet there - in this case you can as well just use the "Aircraft at XXX Airport" cat.

Please do not consider my comment as criticism; it is just something very high on the wish-list of the "Aviation People" to have the most characteristic item of a file in place. Thank you very much for your future help and have a good day (for the rest of it, wherever you are)! Kind regards --Uli Elch (talk) 14:18, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@Uli Elch: Hi Uli! The file you are referring to is not uploaded by me. I’m just trying to help according to this to add the categories mentioned as “a bare minimum” (No. 4). I’ll try to do better. Cheers! -- Meisam (talk) 14:37, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick answer! This "bare minimum" list has been disputed often before; unfortunately, in its current condition it only represents the private, un-coordinated opinion of a globally blocked user.
When adding and correcting cats they don't have to be uploaded by yourself. It is a work very much appreciated, especially because exactly this user has uploaded tens of thousands of files (under hundreds of sockpuppet names) without any category!
My point is simply to add the "Aircraft at XXX Airport" cat or (only if convenient) any more precise "Type of aircraft ..." cat, because editors writing an article are usually trying to find suitable pictures in the "Type" or "Airline" cats, but certainly not in "1999 at Grassfield Aerodrome".
By the way, I just saw you are from (living in?) Azerbaijan. I remember Baku and the adjoining Caucasus region as very interesting and impressive regions; I had really enjoyed several short journey them. --Uli Elch (talk) 14:51, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Uli Elch: I fully agree with your point and will try to add the "Aircraft at XXX Airport" categories to the files I come across.
When I first started categorizing the aviation files, I searched for the naming/categorizing guidelines but I couldn’t find anything in Commons:WikiProject Aviation. I’m still not completely sure about the structure of the category tree for the aircrafts [3] Also, there are still open discussions like this. I think having a guideline for categorization can hugely benefit the project and also help the new users who want to contribute. Let me know if I can help in anyway. Thanks for your patience in explaining the stuff to the other users. I know it can be frustrating sometimes.
BTW, I’m from en:Azerbaijan (Iran) but currently living abroad. -- Meisam (talk) 15:14, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks once again. Your idea in the "AX-2343"-question seems to be very reasonable to me, too. However, I think the sections "Police aircraft of XXX" and "Air ambulances of XXX by registration" should be included in the "Normal" reg-list as long as they do not carry registrations out of the normal civilian sequence (like this one).
Unfortunately, I'm just running out of time a bit ahead of our vacation, so I cannot at present discuss it all in detail as in your mentioned discussion. I'd like to finish a few simple structural edits before. See you later and best regards --Uli Elch (talk) 15:28, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@GeXeS: Hi! That was intentional. B is a part of the Bermuda's prefix for aircraft registeration. Not omitting it will sort all the aircraft categories under the B-section. -- Meisam (talk) 09:47, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

We just lost the only image of Turkish composer Murat Ses. I do not know if I could do anything to prevent it, but did not see the DR on time. As you may know, he was the founder and a member of the group Ağrı Dağı Efsanesi. Now we are left only with an old vinyl of the music of this composer and his group. As Category:Murat Ses is empty, I will add the group under his cat. If we do it the other way, than we will not have a trace of Murat Ses who has articles in a couple of Wikipedias, while the group -I am astonished why- has none. Best. --E4024 (talk) 14:17, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

@E4024: To keep the Wikimedia Commons free and accessible for everybody, the copyright issues must be taken very seriously. As he is alive and still active, it is possible to find free photos of Murat Ses. The categories can be sorted out later when we find more related images. IMO, unfortunately, the reputation of the Ağrı Dağı Efsanesi band has been overshadowed by the song of the same name and also due to its short life (1972-76).
For a while I was creating Wikidata items for the relatively less widely known Turkish bands/musicians. You will find “Ağrı Dağı Efsanesi” and other familiar names in the list of the items I’ve created.

Pay attention to copyright
Wikimedia Commons does not accept fair use content. Fair use laws vary from country to country, and uses that are acceptable under US law, for example, may not be acceptable in many other countries with more restrictive rules.

Also, fair use is only applicable in a few limited contexts. The use of a media file in one context may be considered fair use, while the use of the same file in another context may constitute copyright violation. In particular, fair use does not extend to the collection and distribution of media files in a media database such as Commons. Therefore, Commons cannot legally rely on fair use provisions.

Non-free content that may be used with reference to fair use may be uploaded locally to projects which allow this.
