I come here working on Category:Copyright_violations, which is filled with 183 pictures using this template:
The reason is:

{{copyvio|1=As explained in OTRS ticket: 2011040410008206 and OTRS ticket:2009052510029228 - it applies to all pictures in which this template is used [1] - delete this template only after deletion all pictures marked by it}}

Not knowing the OTRS tickets I dont know the exact reason. Deleting the files will be a big loss, but well, if they are unfree they should never have been uploaded. I think the best thing will be if one person executes the deletion in one block, this will list them in that admins log and will allow for quick undeletion if something happens in future. I can do this with AWB. However, is the OTRS ticket all correct? Of the at this moment existing files:

  • 147 files have been uploded from January to June 2005.
  • 36 files have been uploaded from October 2010 untill today.

Was there ever a free license grant? If yes, a license is not revoable, this can apply to the 2005 uploads. Was there a license grant for the uploads of 2010? If the 2009 ticket already revoked a license grant or forbids future uploads then this 36 uploads of 2010/2011 must be deleted. If there however never was a valid license grant then all 183 files must go. --Martin H. (talk) 12:57, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Two years ago (May 2009) one of the OTRS volunteers asked Pkuczynski to provide a prove for his claims that he has an agreement from the author. We have received then an E-mail from the author accepting generally GNU FDL - but without clear explanation to which exactly pictures. Then after several months (August 2009) - another OTRS volunteer asked to send the proper acceptance for GNU FDL and CC-BY-SA - again we have received a kind of unclear agreement - but not clearly stated to which pictures and which exactly versions of licences - and then there was no response from Pkuczynski. Just recently - there was a question regarding legal status of these pictures sent to OTRS - therefore I started to examine the situation - and found that there is no proper agreement. I asked Pkuczynski again to provide it and get no answer from him - therefore I decided to ask for deletion. If you take a look for Pkuczynski discussion page - you can see - that such a situation was also with many other pictures he uploaded: See for example: User:Pkuczynski/Lukasz_Lukasik.

The August 2009 and the later unclear permission not refer to files already uploaded to Commons? (Your answer was clear already, I just ask again to realy be sure) --Martin H. (talk) 20:47, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
No - they refer to uknown set of pictures - and generally the agreement is totally unclear. As the author of the pictures is a profesional photographer selling his pictures via several photo-agencies - the situation should be 100% clear. Polimerek (talk) 10:51, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
I think the discussion already continued at COM:OTRSN. But yes, I agree with you - although I think a listing of all files is not required but a permission for "<number> files uploaded by <uploader> untill <yyyymmdd< and listed at in the version of <yyyymmdd>" can be enough reference. --Martin H.
