Hello, I would like you to undelete this file because it is my picture and I own the full rights to it. I am Princess Vitarah's photographer and social media manager. I have full copyrights to this photo. I have been managing her Wikipedia since 2017. Every time I upload a photo it is marked for deletion, I don't understand. If you need me to prove I have rights to this photo you can email at that is my official email address. Yes the photo is a screenshot from a video because she posted it on youtube as well, but the video belongs to us and we have uploaded it to Creative Commons and dont mind if anyone else uses it. The video and the screenshot from the video both belong to us and we are okay using it on Wikipedia so please undelete it or email me at --Johnabook (talk) 11:55, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Haywyre images[edit]

Hi there, I went to check your talkpage after the overzealous speedy deletion request on one of my images and you appear to have a history of speedy deleting many images as soon as uploaded, regardless of the fact it was flagged as OTRS pending. I worked directly with Haywyre on this upload, and his management have sent an email confirming that they own the rights and want to place the image under CC BY 4.0. I suggest you now undo the action you have taken, and let OTRS volunteers deal with this and approve the image B4shful (talk) 22:36, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Update: someone else has already removed the speedy deletion due to OTRS sent. It might be wise to be more careful with how you throw speedy deletions around! B4shful (talk) 23:28, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

images of Paul Werner's works[edit]

Hallo Patrick, Paul Werner was a good and old artist-friend of me in Amsterdam; so I made many photos for him of his works, like the ones I placed on Commons, so I could use them for adding to his article on the Dutch Wikipedia. I think he deserves it! He died last year. I hope this is allowed to do. All the bestFotoDutch (talk) 06:47, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

The Rising Hawk poster[edit]

Hello. As I mentioned while uploading this file, the owners of the file are the film company that made this film, so I've added the address of the official website of it as a source. So, this is their new poster, of their own film, which is added to their own Wiki page. How come it can violate licensing rights?

Borrado de fotos usuario Baratillo[edit]

Buenos días Patrick,

Soy Baratillo, y te escribo en relación a la propuesta de borrados de varias fotografías que he subido a wikimedia commons. Todas son del fotógrafo Pablo Cobos, y todas han sido cedidas para poder ser subidas con su permiso y autorización. Existe un documento donde queda reflejada esta cesión de derechos que pongo a disposición de quien corresponda.

Por este motivo, y aclarando el asunto sin dejar duda alguna, solicito por favor elimine la solicitud del borrado de estas fotografías al cumplir las normas que determinas la plataforma.

Hi, I can understand you put the banner for deletion on the pictures of the work of François Dumas (I'm waiting for his autorization) but I can't understand why you want to delete the photographs of the Cartonnages Stéphanois which is a public space, that have been painted by residents. Furthermore, all the pictures are mines and I used the usual licences. Could you explain your approach ? Sincerely, --MirandaAdramin (talk) 21:46, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

He has agreed to insert the following note at that website: "These photos are available for modification and reuse under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 Unported License and the GNU Free Documentation License" (with embedded links for the 2 licenses). Will that be suitable to allow this image file to be reinstated in Wikipedia Commons? If so, how soon does he need to insert that note? If not, could you please direct me as to what action would be suitable to allow it to be reinstated? Thank you, Bradley Bobbs

Thank you for your reply. I will have him add that license on his website ASAP.

Norman Zamcheck has now added the license on his website at (at the bottom of the page).

File:Verkiezingsbord GR2018.jpg[edit]

Why? It is my own picture, slefmade, it's a work in a public space in the Netherlands, the posters are public domain because they are for elections. The sign is permanently located in a public place, the place that is mentioned with the picture. This isn't different from pictures like File:Belgische lokale verkiezingen 2018 reclame Kortrijk.jpg. It's the same category and kind of picture. So what is the problem?

Direitos de imagem[edit]

Hello Patrick. Just saw that several (if not all...) images uploaded by User talk:Amadouibrahim2 were copyvios. Ibrahim is involved in an educational program I run, but unfortunately... was not able to follow the face to face training we organized in fall (during which the copyright issues were raised). He was handed out documents with guidelines and rules, but I guess nothing replace a good old face to face down-to-earth explanation, in particular on the touchy issue of licences... a topic most people are unaware of :( I contacted him in private to explain him more about authorship and rights and asked him to review all images he provided and look for other options.

Uploaded pictures[edit]

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for reviewing the pictures of Tiger Woods (File:TigerWoodsHeadshot.png) and Peter Thompson (File:Peter Thomson - Australian golfer.jpg) I uploaded.

The permission guidelines for the Tiger Woods upload was:


This is a human-readable summary of the Pixabay License (read the full text).

You can use all images and videos published on Pixabay for free (except as set out below). You may use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes, in altered and unaltered form. You don't need to ask permission from or provide credit to the image author or Pixabay, although it is appreciated when possible.

What is not allowed?

This section only applies to image users and not to the appropriate image authors.

Do not redistribute images or videos on other stock photo or wallpaper platforms. Identifiable people may not appear in a bad light or in a way that is offensive. Don't imply endorsement of your product by the image author or depicted persons or brands. Don't sell unamended or unaltered copies of an image or video, e.g. don't sell it as a stock photo, poster, print or on a physical product, without adding any value.

Is the item in bold the issue?

For Peter Thomson the permission guidelines are:

Photograph taken by Mercury newspaper. The photograph may be reproduced, providing a printed acknowledgement to the Mercury is made in the publication in which the print appears.

I acknowledged Mercury newspapers in the upload. So I fail to see the problem?

I am relatively new to this so would appreciate your feedback Jopal22 (talk) 12:31, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Enough of that bullshit, ask her where I took the pic. I’m the owner of the federation where she won the title and yeah, she put the picture of twitter, facebook, instagram. Tired of all this seriously... Let’s say you are a wrestler and I took a picture of you, then send it to you and you like it and post it on instagram. Picture doesnt become a criminal act because of that.

If you had just taken 2 minutes to read the description of the image you put a "no permission" tag on, you would have known that I provided a link to the webpage where the author says they release all their images published under their name under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported.

I'll copy the description here, in case you're too busy:

English: An image of the agreement between representatives of the three parties forming the "Acuerdo del Botánico". The copyright holder of this work is, which allows for free use of its content, all of which is released under the BY-SA Creative Commons 3.0 as stated on their webpage.

If your level of Spanish is lacking, let me know and I'll help you translate it.

In the meanwhile, I'll save you time by removing the tag myself.

Thank you,

A bowl of strawberries for you![edit]

Erdbeerteller01.jpg Hallo Patrick,

thank you very much for your mail

I just got an automatically generated reply for my OTRS request with [Ticket#2019043010006789] Confirmation of receipt (Re: I would like to publ [...]) from Permissions - Wikimedia Commons <>. Would it be possible to check it, whether everything is complying and my waiting is not superfluous? Or even give permission, if everything seems to be okay?

I made two translations from the same article about the artist László Lakner



I worked on these translations since about 20. February, sometimes 14 hours a day, many weeks long. I am new to Wikipedia and to navigate all the regulations (false namespace, etc.) is very difficult for me. Could you help me to publish these translations?

I appreciate your work and thank you very much for your help. Et bon appetit for the strawberries :-) Joseph Somogyi1 Joseph Somogyi1 (talk) 14:45, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Michelle Obama and Karen Dudley[edit]

Dear Patrick

I recently added my own photograph to my Wikipedia page. I am the copyright holder to all rights in this photo. That photo was taken by me on the cellphone of a close friend in 2011. The website that supposedly claims to have the copyright rights of the photo managed to snatch it off my social media page.

Please undelete this photo and unblock my account; there is no copyright violation.

Thank you for your assistance and consideration.

Sincerely, Ben

ROBERTO MONTANARI's photos[edit]

Hi Patrick, I am studying this painter and I'm gather material; I took the picture of the calle in Estepona, in Spain and the logo of El Pintor De Los Toros it's in reality a postcard that my friend gave me as a gift, but I saw that it is also posted in the website of the artist, so I decided to delete it. The picture of Roberto Montanari and Salvador Dalì comes from the depliant of the painter that I have. Do you have any suggest to post anything else that I have of the painter? Thank you in advance.

Recent Lord of war photo[edit]

Dear Patrick,

Thank you for the message.

I am preparing an article translation for the movie Lord of war in Bulgarian language and I needed the poster image for that reason.

Is there a way to use the same image that is already used in English wikipedia? Or just been marked as non-free as it is marked there? Apologies but it's my first article and first time that I am uploading anything. I will appreciate your help with this.

Thank you.

Copyright issues[edit]

How do I upload images in line with copyright guidelines? I tried to upload these but they were deleted. Those images were photographs I took myself of the artists' works. The artist is my grandfather but, at 95, he is, unfortunately, unable to speak for himself. I would appreciate any help in getting this solved.

Hello. I see that you claimed that this image that I uploaded violated the copyright rules. However, I disagree; this is just an image of a cover of a single. In almost every article about a single on Wikipedia, there is an image of he single's cover. I am willing to hear your reasons for why it is a copyright violation. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thank you.

Photos uploaded by Stefantast[edit]

Hello Patrick, you have marked every single photo that I have uploaded as copyrights infringement and have deleted them. Note that I am the Manager, Co-Agent, Coach and Father of Xander Schauffele. Furthermore, please note that I am the creator of, which you have listed as proof for infringement. Furthermore, please note that I am the grandson of Richard Schauffele. Also, be informed that Kevin Techakanokboon is a close friend of Xander Schauffele. As these facts cannot have been known to you, I must bring them to your attention. I find it somewhat appalling that the "certification of ownership and right of usage" I gave when uploading those images is being so grossly discarded. Why have that form when it is irrelevant? Laws are in place for infringement upon intellectual property rights. In this case I suggest that you as one who seemingly takes his function policing Wikimedia very seriously, have arguably been a bit overzealous when instead of immediately tagging and deleting, you could have simply written to me first. Not everybody is a crook or a hack Patrick. I certainly appreciate your volunteer work in this respect, but at times proper measure is necessary. Read on please to see my reasoning and should you be convinced, kindly remove the tags you have created for Stefantast as well as the tags for all images in question.

1)File tagging File:Schauffele Molly young.jpg 2)File:K Techakanokboon ZhuHai.jpg 3)File:Xander Schauffele at the 2016 Price Cutter (Final Round).png 4)File:Xander Schauffele 2017 ROY interview.jpg 5)File:Xander Schauffele with Calamity Jane.jpg 6)File:Xander Schauffele reacts after making winning putt.jpg 7)File tagging File:Xander Schauffele Profile 4.jpg 8)File:Xander Schauffele Profile 2.jpg 9)File:Xander Schauffele Profile 3.jpg 10)File:Xander Schauffele Profile 1.jpg

- Photos relating to Richard Schauffele (image 1; and others not here listed) are historical photos in the ownership of our family and have been published with permission by the family in the past 50 to 100 years. They are clearly in the public realm. - Photos relating to Xander Schauffele are in my personal ownership and have been created in part by Callaway Golf Company (images 7 through 10) with permission for personal use. Also, I was present at the photo shoot when these particular images have been created. - Images 4 and 5 are my personal creation - Image 2 has not been taken by myself but has been given to me by Kevin Techakanokboon's caddy at the time, who was present at the ceremony in China in 2018. - Image 6 has been taken by a horde of photographers including myself from a multitude of angles. I am only 80% certain that this is one of my own as I have probably a dozen of nearly identical images when running the shutter. - image 3 is a ghetty image and could be the only one that may be infringing, but I don't think so. We as a family have purchased this particular images for 2016 year end greeting cards to be sent out by the agency in Xander Schauffele's name to fans and sponsors. You be the judge as to whether this constitutes infringement or not.

At multiple occasions have I granted rights use and reproduction permission for these images to be used in social media, website and internet content. Again, kindly remove the tags you have created for Stefantast as well as the tags for all images in question. Also kindly reinstate the files that you have already so hastily deleted. Sincerely, --Stefantast (talk) 03:04, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
