Hi, May I request your opinion? File:MN Stockholm.jpg is a postcard issued by the Swedish American Line, based in Göteborg. The PD-Italy tag used by the uploader is probably inapplicable, as it is unlikely that the image was first published in Italy. But, as it was probably first published in Sweden, would it meet the conditions of PD-Sweden-photo? I am not familiar with the conditions of that tag. -- Asclepias (talk) 01:16, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion nomination for Trinidad and Tobago and Guyanese passports
Can you provide justification for the nomination for the deletion of these images? These images in no way violate any copyright laws of Wikipedia have been composed by me (Saltprune416). If Wikipedia and further users like yourself continue this modus operandi, pretty soon I will remove all my contributions to this website as it goes against fair inclusion and contribution to the tenets of this database. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Saltprune416 (talk • contribs) 2014-07-12T15:17:46 (UTC)
- The uploader claims to have designed the passports, but has not provided any evidence that this is the case. Passports are typically created by governments. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:24, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
There isn't any claim on design. The image like thousands of others on Wikipedia were taken and are fair use. Images of scenery are not designed by the photographer, the same way an image of a passport is simply a depiction of an object that exists by said photographer. Passports are indeed owned by governments, but a search on the majority of passport pages uploaded and complimentary photos show no evidence that they have been uploaded by either governments nor sourced from government websites. I'd like it if you highlight government contributions to the following pages and passports: Canadian, American, British, European Union passports etc.
- Fair use claims are not valid on Commons, see COM:FU. Non-free passports need permission from the government that created it. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:02, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Please give me some time to ask permission from the governments involved to use said images of the passport that are freely available online and to anyone with a camera to upload. Will respond momentarily. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Saltprune416 (talk • contribs) 2014-07-12T17:12:15 (UTC)
