Copyvio conversions to DR Wilhelminapier

though there was some color correction, the two Wilhelminapier pictures are obvious copyright violations in that it is a computer graphic of what the Wilhelminapier will look like in a few years. It couldn't be a different picture taken from the same location. --Vera (talk) 20:46, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

My mistake. I did not realize that the image was computer generated. Deleted hence. --Sreejith K (talk) 05:19, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Have you read the first statement in the page Category:Images from FilmiTadka? If not, please do now. --Sreejith K (talk) 11:20, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
OK, now I see the extra clauses related to the whole category of images available under cc-by-sa-3.0. I am going to restore the files, although I must say the way the terms of use section was written confuses me a little. Wpedzich (talk) 11:47, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
I agree that it is not easy to find, but I am unsure why you thought of deleting them first before putting a DR or a {{Copyvio}} tag. Its always good to have someone crosscheck. --Sreejith K (talk) 11:57, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
All restored, sorry to have done that, I am going to take a walk to clear my head... Wpedzich (talk) 12:03, 16 March 2012 (UTC)


Wondering why you deleted the file? Lionelt (talk) 04:53, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

File:Straight Pride T-shirt.jpg was deleted because a copy of it was also found here which makes it a copyright violation. --Sreejith K (talk) 07:05, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Removal of label at "Male Genitals plus Description.JPG "

I have added the missing information. Would you be so kind to check it and remove the by a bot added label. Thanks. Regards SimoneSchiffers (talk) 19:11, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Angamaly church Glass Paintings

I would like to upload photographs of glass paintings in st george basillica angamaly. Is they cause copyright violation? These pictures are made using different colored glass in the windows of church ? Picture Like this --Ranjithsiji (talk) 06:12, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

For paintings, we either need permissions from the copyright owner of the paintings or the painting itself should be in public domain due to age. Since these paintings in the church might be not be old enough in PD, which I suspect, the only way commons can accept is if we get a permission letter from the Church saying they are OK in publishing the images under a free license. --Sreejith K (talk) 06:17, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I will try to get a letter or email from the church authority--Ranjithsiji (talk) 07:27, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Sobre "Escudo_2012_Alianza_Unicachi.png"

Una pregunta. No sé hablar mucho inglés pero quisiera preguntar ¿por qué borraste "Escudo_2012_Alianza_Unicachi.png"? ¿Tengo que subirlo de la misma manera que "Alianza Unicachi.jpg"? ¿O cuál fue el motivo del borrado?--Alonsito201296 (talk) 02:22, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Translated by Google Translate: A question. I can not speak much English but I ask why you deleted "Escudo_2012_Alianza_Unicachi.png"? Do I have to upload the same way that "Alianza Unicachi.jpg"? Or what was the reason for deletion?--Sreejith K (talk) 05:32, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
{{Fair use}} images are not accepted in Commons. You can upload the image in English Wiki or any other language wiki with a detailed Fair User Rationale. I can help you with uploading it there if you can tell me in which Wiki you want to use the image. --Sreejith K (talk) 05:35, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Yo deseo usar esa imagen que borraste en el artículo "Alianza Unicachi" (Wikipedia en inglés). En ese artículo hay otras dos imágenes ("File:Alianza Unicachi 2010.PNG" y "File:Alianza Unicachi.jpg") que no fueron borrados. Leí los datos del archivo y están subidos con otras plantillas. ¿Debo subir el archivo borrado de esa manera?--Alonsito201296 (talk) 23:03, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

File:Assou-Ekotto et El Ahmadi.jpg

Sorry, I couldn't resist sharing my thoughts (I saw this file on flickr review board, and it was autoremoved by your review) - you might see what I don't (and I admittedly don't have time today to research this in detail). The flickr uploader uses Nikon D3 for all his images; this one it taken with Canon EOS-1D Mark II - an expensive camera from a rival company. There is no full EXIF data because the original was removed from flickr, and only date+camera entries remain. I don't see other (non-echo) copies of this image on Google, but other Commons users often find images which are missed in my Google search. Regards. Materialscientist (talk) 04:03, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Looks like this file in question is from 2009 while all the other files are from 2011 or 2012. The user would have probably changed the camera in this timeframe. Does that make sense? --Sreejith K (talk) 05:33, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
It is unusual to change from professional Canon to professional Nikon camera (both cost roughly $5,000 body-only, meaning more costs for changing the lens set [1] [2]). Anyway, I won't nominate such image for deletion on this basis - everything can happen in real life. Materialscientist (talk) 06:28, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
May be the camera is rented. Or may be the camera is of the agency he is working for. I do not know. And I would not worry much. --Sreejith K (talk) 07:05, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Fotos H.-P.Haack

Das fotografierte Objekt ist aufgrund seines Alters gemeinfrei, aber nicht das Foto. The photographed object is public domain due to age, but not the photo. Meine Buchfotografien werden als Objektfotografie anerkannt. Wenigstens das. Die Fotographie von alten graphischen Blättern - mehr Handwerk als Kunst - ist ebenfalls Objektfotografie. Ich wäre nicht eingeschnappt, wenn alle fotografierten Bilder ("zweidimensional") von mir gelöscht würden. Wenn Commons die Bilder behalten will, dann aber nur, wenn die Fotos als Objektfotografie eingestuft werden und ich genannt werde. Vorschlag: "Foto Wikimdeia commons H.-P.Haack" oder "Foto Wikimedia H.-P.Haack". Man wird kaum einen anderen Sammler finden, der Fotos seiner Raritäten der Öffentlichkeit kostenlos übergibt. Wenn er das macht, sollte man ihm gönnen, dass er als Fotograf genannt wird. - - H.-P.Haack (talk) 10:38, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I do not understand German. Would you mind contacting any user from Category:User de? --Sreejith K (talk) 12:07, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Cruz Azul logotypes

Hello. I noticed that you deleted two logos frome FC Cruz Azul. File:Cruz Azul logo.svg and File:Cruz azul logo.png under the argument "©Copyright Cruz Azul Futbol Club A.C. Derechos Reservados", as an admin you perfectly should known that claiming copyrights does not grant you copyrights. Further discussion abot this logo is taken at Commons:Deletion requests/File:C.F.

Estimado Screejithk2000: Veo que todas las fotografías de cuadros de Hanoos han sido marcadas para borrar. Os informo que dichas fotografías son mías, por lo que cuento con los derechos sobre ellas. Los cuadros originales son del artista. --Isidoro Castaño (talk) 22:10, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Translated with google translate: I see all the photos Hanoos boxes have been marked for deletion. I inform you that these pictures are mine, so I have rights over them. The original paintings are the artist.
Unless you have proof that you own the copyrights, we will be forced to believe that the painter has copyright. So can you please email the proof to COM:OTRS or email the permissionf from the painter --Sreejith K (talk) 06:52, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Yup. Deleted. A direct link to an image does not help since it does not say whether that image or the one in Commons was published first. Thanks for responding to this quickly. --Sreejith K (talk) 09:41, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I'll show the pic to some botanists and plant enthusiasts. Obviously it is not a cedar and probably not a conifer at all.--Carnby (talk) 20:46, 29 March 2012 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed that you processed the "duplicate" tag on File:Logo République Française.png as a duplicate of File:Logo de la République française.svg, are you sure it was derived from that SVG. There are three different definitions of that logo, two colour ones for different printing processes and a monochrome one. I am also currently trying to work out the copyright status of the EPS's that the SVGs were probably generated from. I suspect that the PNGs were obtained directly from a French government law type publication and are fine, but it is not clear to me whether that makes the EPSs (and hence SVGs) PD as well. (see also Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/Blocks_and_protections#File:Logo_de_la_R.C3.A9publique_fran.C3.A7aise_300_dpi.png). Thanks, --Tony Wills (talk) 22:26, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

I have restored the image. I generally does not delete PNG files as a duplicate of SVG, but this one did not catch my eye when I did mass delete of a few duplicate files in one shot. My reverted my mistake now and is leaving the file to another admin to decide. Thanks for the note. --Sreejith K (talk) 05:01, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I see the {{duplicate}} being applied to many files including redirects as a back door method to get a speedy delete, and of course with busy people they often gets processed. If a PNG has clearly been created from our SVG then I think it is reasonable to delete the PNG as the wiki software can generate PNG type thumbnails on the fly. But some recent {{duplicate}} nominations have been confused by the PNG being overwritten by a version generated from a similar SVG - the newly uploaded PNG revision should certainly be deleted, but probably not the previous PNG version. All very confusing really :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 10:46, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

deletion of File:wuestenschwimmer.jpg

Hi, did you recognize, that the file in question is a reproduction of stone age rock paintings? The reproduction by László Almásy might fall under PD-art, if we consider the cave wall to be flat and therefore assume a 2D-reproduction. --h-stt !? 14:31, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

The reason given for deletion is that the drawing given is a copyrighted artwork by László Almásy (1895–1951). Source= Reprint of a plate in Ladislaus E. Almásy, Schwimmer in der Wüste, Innsbruck, 1997, 3rd ed., second plate after p. 192.. Are you saying this is wrong? --Sreejith K (talk) 14:43, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I did not look here earlier: The image in question is a reproduction of a cave painting from the stone age. László Almásy (who died in 1951) reproduced the old painting in his book Levegőben, homokon in 1937. This book got translated into German first in 1939 and again in 1997. The uploader took the image from the latter book. But we have to consider if it is public domain because the reproduction as such does not warrant a copyright. The problem is, that Almásy painted a copy of the cave painting. If it were a photograph, we could apply PD-art, but we never talked about reproductions by painting so far. What do you think? Should I ask at Commons talk:When to use the PD-Art tag? --h-stt !? 15:37, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
I have undeleted the image since I now believe that this image has to go through a regular DR rather than a speedy deletion. Please voice your opinion on the DR page. Thanks. --Sreejith K (talk) 18:25, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
I have to thank you for the quick reaction. --h-stt !? 13:31, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

aqd error on File:Logo_C_Sharp.png

happened because the rationale contained {}. RegularExpressions can't handle our template system. Cheers -- RE rillke questions? 17:37, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

I agree. I had tried this elsewhere and could not do it either. There I managed by counting the number of open and closed curly braces and if that does not match, calling regex again from that point for the next curly brace. I repeated it until the match equaled. Not sure whether this will help you though. --Sreejith K (talk) 04:35, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Singapore.jpg‎

Hi! Maybe you should redirect "File:Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Singapore.jpg" to "File:Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Singapore - 20120320.jpg" instead, as the latter has EXIF data? — Cheers, JackLee talk 10:25, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Are you sure the latter has EXIF data? I do not see that though. I still can do as you directed; I was only looking for the better name of the two. What do you reckon? --Sreejith K (talk) 10:31, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I was advised by another editor that we should retain "Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Singapore - 20120320.jpg" as it has EXIF data, which is why I tagged "Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Singapore.jpg" as a duplicate. Maybe you can check. Thanks. — Cheers, JackLee talk 11:19, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Done as requested. You can see that the EXIF contains no useful information which is what I meant in my first comment. --Sreejith K (talk) 11:26, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see what you mean. No problem. Thanks anyway. — Cheers, JackLee talk 11:36, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Flickr image File:Peace line gates.JPG

Hi. I don't see how this isn't a copyright violation. The image on Flickr pre-dates the image here, and is clearly listed as "All Rights Reserved". 10:22, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

The file was reviewed by User:Ezarate and at that time the flickr image was under a free license. Creative Commons license is irrevocable, so it does not matter now on which license the flicker image is. --Sreejith K (talk) 11:19, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but that's somewhat questionable. Until this IP found/reported[3] the image to be a Flickr-vio, it had never been Flickr-reviewed because it had never been Flickr-sourced. Only thereafter, nearly 5 years after upload, Ezrate added[4] a Flickr-review for the first time. As the IP reported the image to be (C)ARR before and after Ezrate had added the review, his positive review is at least somewhat questionable. Anyway, I've directly asked the Flickr-user for comment. --Túrelio (talk) 12:55, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Interesting. I have pointed User:Ezarate to this discussion and invited to comment. --Sreejith K (talk) 15:22, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Yesterday, I reverted reverted this copyvio tag because in the flickr photo the license said cc-by-sa 2.0. Today it appears changed to copyright. That's all Ezarateesteban 16:22, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

The uploader is the author of the books. While he certainly does not have copyright of the image, he can get the publisher release the rights since they must be in good contact. I was buying time for the uploader to see the DR and respond. We don't want the uploader getting pissed off and stop uploading, agree? --Sreejith K (talk) 15:12, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I agree with the spirit of your action, but may be it is good time for me to request you to have a look into this particular user's edits/uploads across all Wikimedia/Wikipedia projects. Since you are from India, you would perhaps be able to judge his actions with a better perspective than any other non-Indian sysop. TIA. Regards, Lovy Singhal (talk) 15:20, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Hmm. Looking at the uploader's history, it is unlikely that we will get OTRS permissions. I will give him a day more and then delete it earlier than scheduled. --Sreejith K (talk) 07:20, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
My dear Shreejith! Kindly review once again the above file before deletion. See my comments on the nomination page and believe me at least. I am not a layman, why should I tell a lie in such an old age of 65?Dr.'Krant'M.L.Verma (talkEmail)
My dear Shreejith Ji! I have incorporated the license permission on the precribed format. Kindly go through, review it and KEEP this file on wikicommons. Thanks Dr.'Krant'M.L.Verma (talkEmail)Krantmlverma (talk) 05:28, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

File:GChD logo.svg vs. File:GChD logo.png

I am so sorry of using .png instead of .svg, but I have a problem with .svg:
as you can see, File:GChD logo.svg is not same as File:GChD logo.png - in .svg, there is not drawn full name of our school. If you can manage to have full name of "Gymnázium Christiana Dopplera Praha" here, I will use the vector graphic instead of raster.

I am not actually good in editing SVG files. May be you should try Commons:Graphic Lab/Illustration workshop. I can try with my friends too. --Sreejith K (talk) 15:19, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, I will try it... --Xmaster00111 (talk) 12:26, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Wrong deletion!

About your deletion of, it's not true that is a copyright violation: it was a total redraw of original (first vectorized and after re-rasterized), and also have graphical differences with the original image.

About your deletion of, perhaps it's a mistake because it's totally wrong the reference at web page this website does not contain at all similar images AFIK.

Please restore the 2 images, thanks! --Cheminvento (talk) 11:50, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

A copy of File:Alpinfo2010.png is found in this PDF file. Its true that you have redrawn it since the colors are different, but not to a point to claim separate copyright. It still is a derivative work. If you still oppose to my deletion, please file a request at Commons:Requests for undeletion
For the second file, I am undeleting it since I am unable to find which PDF has the image. I will put a DR on it and give a chance for you to explain. --Sreejith K (talk) 12:11, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm... this user seem a vandal... his edit have to be reverted. --Cheminvento (talk) 14:42, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
The IP has targetted you, but it seems like the deletion tags the IP has put are more or less valid. Please give a better explanation about the source of the images at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Profilo geotermico Torino-Lione.png or else you stand a chance of getting your images deleted. --Sreejith K (talk) 18:28, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

DigitalComicMuseum logo.jpg

Hello, site administrators Digital Comic Museum, asked me to remove the logos and only accept the use of fair use.Hyju (talk) 11:57, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Oh, ok. But File:DigitalComicMuseum logo.jpg is too simple to be copyrighted. Its just plain text. The ideal place for uploading this file is Commons. May be you can convince them ? --Sreejith K (talk) 18:38, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
I do not know how to convince them, for now I think mellhor delete the file, even I'm not familiar with this concept of plain text.Hyju (talk) 11:22, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
I thought the logo on Google, they say, it is not available for viewing.Hyju (talk) 11:26, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Can you delete the re-upload versions (copyvios) by User:Azad121‎? I've reverted them, but they're still accessible in the image history and can find their way back any time. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 16:28, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

I have cleaned up whatever I saw here. Let me know if there is something I missed. --Sreejith K (talk) 19:14, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

By the way I have found out that there is still 2 files not restored [5] [6], can you return them please? Thank you very much! --Abbad_Dira (talk) 12:27, 4 May 2012 (UTC).
Restored them now. But I see that these files are not part of the OTRS ticket and these files has a watermark which makes the copyright claim dubious. If you can give a reasonable explanation, I will keep the image here. --Sreejith K (talk) 12:43, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

File:The MILF barbershop Shenzhen China.jpg (For the love of...We should not be pasting a random woman's picture on the internet and telling the world she is a prostitute. The flickr page this originated from is an awful source for claiming as much. I don't know what CSD criterion this is, but it...)

Speedy deletion without any good reason is a direct path to lose your admin flag. That woman is real prostitute and I dont care about your sense of morality or something else. You HAVE TO restore this image and only after that we can discuss it Алый Король (talk) 07:11, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

The deletion reason was filled in by User:Someguy1221 but that's a valid concern. This is a portrait of a women stating that she is a prostitute and it directly violates Commons:Personality rights. The only way I am going to restore this image is by getting an OTRS permission from the subject of the photo. --Sreejith K (talk) 07:16, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok, may be you are right. Lets see what others think. I am restoring it for now and putting it through a regular DR. --Sreejith K (talk) 07:21, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Request for a better upload of File:Wiki_Conference_India_2011_Folder.JPG

Hi Sreejithk2000, I've uploaded Wiki Conference India 2011 Folder. Although this is my own upload, I am terribly upset by the the rather blurred appearance of this valuable folder image. Can you, or any of your friends reupload a better scanned image for it? That way we can have much more memorable and good quality image . The fresh upload can be done at this point of the existing image. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 08:00, 5 May 2012 (UTC).

I did not attend Wiki Conference India 2011, but a few of my friends did. I have left a note for them and is awaiting their reply. --Sreejith K (talk) 19:21, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
A better one is available here File:Wiki Conference India 2011 Folder(1).jpg --Sreejith K (talk) 08:01, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Hei Sreejithk 2000


I have a question. Why did you delete a file that I downloaded?

Заборье. 1966?

I'm a grandson of Boris Stepnovich Lukoshkov! This is his painting!!! What kind of violation is it?

This is good news. If you are the legal copyright owner of this picture, I will undelete it as soon as you email this information to OTRS. Wikimedia will require a consent letter from you stating the copyright and permissions. Unfortunately a message on my talk page will not suffice. Thanks for the note. --Sreejith K (talk) 17:33, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

By the way U have done a big mistake!!! Boris Stepanovich Lukoshkov (1922-1989) and Vladimir Sergeyevich Lukoshkov are two different people!!! 7:29, 8 May 2012 Sreejithk2000 (talk | contribs) deleted page File:6 Лукошков Б.С. Заборье. 1966.tif (Copyright violation: The author Лукошков, Владимир Сергеевич / Vladimir Sergeyevich Lukoshkov died in 1975, this work is still copyrighted.) (global usage; delinker log)

Put his painting back!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lukoshkov (talk • contribs)

All I am asking you is to email OTRS saying that Boris Stepnovich Lukoshkov is your grand father and now you are the copyright holder since he is no more. How difficult is that? If you are insisting on undeleting it, I will do that and will put a deletion request on it. You will have to convince other administrators that you own the copyright. --Sreejith K (talk) 18:48, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
