Copyrighted images[edit]

Hi, please beware that all images from India taken 1936 and after are still copyrighted in the U.S. For a description that points this out check Balayogini 1937film.jpg. Works from 1935 or earlier are free as I pointed out here: Nandanar 1935 film.jpg. There is no consensus currently about images still copyrighted in the U.S., but I wanted to let you know that they are considered problematic. Regards Hekerui (talk) 08:32, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the warning. I have added PD-India tags for them. Also the use of those images comes under fair use categories for both Indian and US Copyright laws. --Sodabottle (talk) 08:41, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Sodabottle!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

Image which are now found for copyright concernes.[edit]

Hi Sodabottle. I am extremely sorry for the mistake did by me. I truly trusted the work (CM JJ image) and judged since it was there in commons, it must be legal enough to re-produce it to other articles. But as you very rightly pointed out, it is clearly taken from web. I accept the mistake and sorry for any inconveniences on this matter. Honestly I thought since the image was there for almost more than 2 months (I guess from April), and no one found that for this long it made me to do. In future let me be more more careful in transforming images to articles. Thanks and sorry again. Do not feel worst. ---- Ungal Vettu Pillai (talk) 08:15, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Of interest to you, as the images are on ta.wiki and being transferred again. You participated in the deletion disc here. SpacemanSpiff (talk) 07:08, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

I have stopped the transfers. Also the transferrer this time (after being informed by me of the problem) has created a separate cat for these images and put up a note not to transfer to commons and to verify and delete the images. So wont happen again. Will take care of those images in the coming weeks in ta wiki.--Sodabottle (talk) 01:15, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

File:File:Nature look.jpg[edit]

Any educational value for this image, or it is a random upload? --Kiran Gopi (talk) 03:44, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

looks like a personal photo. I see no educational value "at present". But i am reluctant to comment delete, because who knows what it might be used for illusrating. After a few weeks, we will be leaving messages for all uploaders asking for more detailed description on their uploads similar to this. We will probably doing some out of scope taggings after that.--Sodabottle (talk) 04:11, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Images from Pollachi Nasan's thamizham.net[edit]

How we can make sure that the images uploaded from thamizham.net are PD-India.? --Kiran Gopi (talk) 11:21, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Pollachi Nasan runs one of the biggest digitisation projects in Tamil (Thamizham.net). He digitises print material that has gone out of copyright and those donated to him by the authors and heirs of authors (Many of the authors donate their works that have gone out of print to him to save them). Even then to be sure Karthickbala is uploading images only of those who died before 1930s. The dates of death of the subjects are given below the photos themselves. Safely well beyond the 60 year period for PD India.--Sodabottle (talk) 11:24, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
Why I am asking again is commons needs a solid proof of the original source (where it was first published), lack of first published date so-many images got deleted from here. For avoiding a mass deletion it is better to keep the original published source. Please find some related DR. 1, more over some of the images not photographs for eg . --Kiran Gopi (talk) 12:15, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
"solid proof" of 19th century publication can never be obtained to everyone's satisfaction. If i offer a offline source, then someone might ask for "visible proof" :-). Thanks for pointing me to that DR. Looks very difficult to satisfy (i know where some of the images come from - have seen the source books in pdf format within the same site, but have to search (not indexed), download and take for each image) . Didnt know things were such bad here :-). Instead of spending time dealing with commons copyright paranoia i will just tell him to upload to local wikipedias under FUR . It is indeed ironic when flickrwashing is given much AGF and such images are put to the screw.--Sodabottle (talk) 12:29, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
Even though some images got deleted from here, please encourage people to upload images to commons with proper source. That will reduce re-uploading of images and save the server space. I understood your emotion. I know it is very difficult to find a source for images published in 1900's :( . Some DR's we can't do anything. :( --Kiran Gopi (talk) 13:34, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Free images in ta wiki[edit]

A while ago, I moved almost everyone of the 4000 free images ml wiki had to Commons. Now everyone at ml wiki uploads free images directly to Commons. Is it the same in ta wiki? Just curious. If there are pending images in ta wiki thats awaiting a transfer to commons, why not organize a drive to move them all here? I can help too. --Sreejith K (talk) 14:40, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

The current ta wiki user base (one that is active since 2010), overwhelmingly uploads to commons now. We have popularised uploading to commons there. Most of the free images date from before that. And a lot of that needs clean up - there are copyvios, images without proper licensing, fairuse images tagged wrongly etc. We have been working on the backlog for a few months now and have made good progress. Currently i lack the energy and time to mount a proper cleanup drive (wiki exhaustion :-)). I am supposed to organise one as part of the current media contest, but couldnt do so properly (we cleaned up a couple of thousand images without coordination and fizzled out after that). I plan to mount a properly planned cleanup drive in a couple of months (once i recover from the contest exhaustion :-). Will definitely ask for your help then. :-).--Sodabottle (talk) 14:48, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
