The Big Bad Wolfowitz As I am the copyright owner of my photograph of my copy of this deceased author's book and I cannot find a reason for your action listed around that specific time stamp in the Deletions Log, I would like to know why it was deleted? Which Wikipedia policy on copyright have I contravened?
For the book?
For the artwork printed on the bookcover?
Or for the sculpture featured as the gravestone depicted in the artwork featured on the book cover?

Please provide the particular copyright being infringed for/by this photograph. Thx MrsKrishan (talk) 08:35, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

UPDATE: researched the skeletal remains at :File:Circuminsession Adrienne von Speyr gravestone autobiography bookcover art.jpg and found this notice,
20:06, 20 February 2017 Jcb (talk | contribs) deleted page File:Circuminsession Adrienne von Speyr gravestone autobiography bookcover art.jpg (Copyright violation: No valid license. Release from the copyright holder for the book cover is required; release from a bookseller who took a photo of the cover is insufficient) (global usage; delinker log)20:06, 20 February 2017 Jcb (talk | contribs) deleted page File:Circuminsession Adrienne von Speyr gravestone autobiography bookcover art.jpg (Copyright violation: No valid license. Release from the copyright holder for the book cover is required; release from a bookseller who took a photo of the cover is insufficient) (global usage; delinker log)
and then verified in Deletion log at that timestamp and can confirm that Jcb is who I should address my request to open a copyright permissions process, so apologies to The Big Bad Wolfowitz seems some confusion over who actually deleted the file, but not over why the file was deleted.

When you photograph a copyrighted book cover, what you create is a "derivative work". When you create a photograph that is a derivative work, some or all of the copyright is owned by whoever owns the copyright to the item you photographed, and you cannot alone give permission for the photo's use on Wikipedia. See Commons:Derivative works generally and this section [1] in particular. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (talk) 22:13, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
