Copyright issues with images transferred from en.wikipedia.org by ToBeFree[edit]

I panicked when I saw the three large warnings on my talk page, expecting a block before being able to explain this. Face-smile.svg ~ ToBeFree (talk) 23:19, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

"Copyright violation" because of "previously published" transfer[edit]

Stop! This has been previously published by the original author, on Facebook, that's what the info means! This is okay! ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:53, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

@ToBeFree: That is not the original author on Facebook. Secondarywaltz (talk) 22:57, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
The "original author" is a school page, if I can see this correctly as unregistered user. The image may well have been created by this individual. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:58, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
@ToBeFree: Commons needs proof and this is dubious. People often try to steal from Facebook. Secondarywaltz (talk) 23:02, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
I agree that this is dubious. Interestingly, the photo date on Facebook seems to be from 2014, when the photo was already uploaded to en.wikimedia.org. Can we assume that the user has actually previously published it to the facebook page, and that it was later taken as their header image? I can't deliver proof for someone who uploaded it in 2013; if verification is needed, the file probably actually needs to go. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 23:08, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

Photo Rus[edit]

Photo Rus appears to be an app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wantu.activity&hl=en --- seems okay to me ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:56, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

@ToBeFree: That is confusing when the App displays as the copyright holder, but you seem to be correct. Secondarywaltz (talk) 22:59, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
I would have thought the same thing first, to be honest. Who programs such an app? :D Thank you ~ ToBeFree (talk) 23:00, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

How to continue?[edit]

Okay. Hi again. :) This seems to have been resolved as conveniently as possible. One image is still tagged for speedy deletion; an admin should probably decide what to do there. One is up for deletion discussion, because I agree that the source is dubious. The uploader claimed that the image has been created by themselves and has previously been published on Facebook by themselves. We can't really verify if that is true. The third image seems to have been tagged by an Android application, maybe created by developers who thought that adding their app name to the EXIF data would be a way to get free promotion.

I'd like to continue uploading pictures, and the category I'm using for that is here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Files_prepared_for_transfer_to_Commons_by_User_ToBeFree

Can we together try to put all the wrong images out? I will, for example, do a search for "facebook" in that category now, and I'll remove all images containing "facebook" on their description pages from this category. Maybe we can find similarly good filters to avoid copyright issues together. You seem to be experienced with this; feel free to remove whatever you want from this category. Thank you very much for informing me about the possible problems. Face-smile.svg ~ ToBeFree (talk) 23:19, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Sorry, but this is not my problem. You are creating trouble by not checking if images have a valid license before you transfer them to Commons. Secondarywaltz (talk) 22:27, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Could you please stop tagging my uploads[edit]
