There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Hello, Mike V!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Please to be checking the permissions of this file[edit] Thank you! Yestorday (talk) 05:52, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Back in October you uploaded File:PastedGraphic-5.tiff and added the OTRS ticket information. I just saw that the image, according to the subject's website, was a "professional shot" from the NBC interview. Are you sure Arvind Dilawar, whom you listed as the source, holds the copyright for that image? If I understand NBC's tag correctly, it's by "John Makely, NBC News", and I would be quite surprised if Makely or NBC released the image under CC-BY-SA 3.0. Huon (talk) 03:00, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

The release came from Arvind Dilawar, who (at least at the time) was an authorized representative of Daniel Genis. He released the photo under CC-BY-SA-3.0 on behalf of Daniel, who is the copyright holder. Mike VTalk 03:08, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
What evidence was presented that Genis, and not Makely and/or NBC News, owns the copyright? Huon (talk) 14:41, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
The employment of Arvind Dilawar was verified. Also, the NBC article was published with the photograph on May 22, 2015 while the permission and image was received by us in October 2014. (Perhaps it's possible that NBC has misattributed the photo.) Nevertheless, I've sent out an email requesting clarification. Mike VTalk 19:57, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
I've heard back from Arvind. He said that since the article the image was hosted on was deleted, he doesn't have much interest in keeping the photo. He said it can be deleted rather than trying to gather the necessary documents. Mike VTalk 21:57, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
