Hi. On 8 October 2011, you redirected File:Blank-map-world-reversed.png to File:Blank-map-world-south-up.png with the summary "Redirecting to duplicate file". Actually, the latter was a duplicate of the former. Also, judging by the talk page of the original, the user who created the duplicate, may have actually created a different map. Apparently (I commented on the talk page at the time, though I don't remember), the original was a flipped map, rather than a rotated map like the duplicate. Is there anyway to restore the original?

Hi, Túrelio Good Morning[edit]

I received a dire or disturbing message here [2] to which I replied forthwith; [3] and another reply; with all due resepec, I cannot understand why after more than 101,000 edit files I upload only since February this year, 2014, I am attacked and accused of many bad things; as you see in my reply, I only not opted or chose to create 2 categories and rather placed the category in one Category as sub-category; I am accused of violating the Rules on Meta or Over-Categorization; but the accuser failed to point to me the specific provision or rule that I violated; I deny the violation, for I am faithfully adhering to the rules; the thing speaks for itself; good faith in editing is presummed; no editor or administraor has messaged me on this, but only this editor, since I started this February, 2014; It is very painful and terrifying to edit and contribute and at the same time being personally attacked; Please, with your kindness and integrity give me some protection, and if I am wrong, please help me be corrected; I chose not to use my user name but just an IP Address for reasons of security. Muchas gracias Túrelio-- 04:45, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm busy in RL. I'll try to look into in the evening. --Túrelio (talk) 11:57, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for you time, Túrelio. I forthwith received in my talk page, a more dire message in this manner which I am quoting because of its importance and I underscore it, to wit: ::::* Sorry xxx I have given up on xxx He just does his own thing, thinking that his pictures will make "Commons a better place for researchers", "a wiser tool of knowledge for the future" and "benefit in the future". Obviously he is thinking way too much of himself and his pictures! But really, he is using Commons as his personal storage device. We have told him many times to be selective, to categorize properly, even to add better descriptions. Even after pointing out the problem, he still doesn't go back to his uploads to correct them, but leaves it to others to clean up after him. That shows that either he doesn't understand English, or he is too arrogant to care. We should just dump all his pictures in a special category like Category:Photographs by Ramon F Velasquez or Category:Photographs by Judge floro, and there nobody will be able to find them or make sense of the mess... [4];

Will all my 101,000 files [5] since February 2014, disappear[edit]

And does User: P199 which, as is shown the other account or alternate of User:Briar fallen, have the power, administrative or otherwise, to delete all my 101,000 photos and dump them in hidden category as these Users P 199 and Briar fallen decide to dump in ""a special category like Category: Photographs by Ramon F Velasquez or Category: Photographs by Judge floro, and there nobody will be able to find them or make sense of the mess... as they proclaimed, announced and stated? Hence, all my photos are rendered nugatory, hidden and can no longer be found in Commons and Wikipedia, is this for real? Please help me, thanks, Very sincerely yours.-- 14:29, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Copyviol User Studio95[edit]

Hello Túrelio, I saw that Studio95 has uploaded several copyrighted pictures for the second time despite your warning in May. Yesterday I put some of his files for an immediate cancellation (see 1, 2, 3, 4) that he uploaded on italian wikipedia on November, 5th. Now there are a few more pictures uploaded by him which I think are copyviol even though it's difficult to find them with Google Images (maybe because downloaded from Flickr or Facebook). I think it would be better to block his account, also because he still operates on italian wikipedia by uploading pictures and editing pages with those pictures and new ones. Thank you! --кıngsт☁n! 15:24, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, last time you decided not to reply to me and, as I thought, Studio95 continued uploading files which I believe are not own works. He started by uploading images from the net and Flickr which were easy for me to find thanks to Google, but now that he understood how it works, and strengthened by the fact that no one is willing to stop him, he began upoading pictures which seem to be taken from magazines and then scanned (in fact all of them are very low resolution). For example, here, you can see the typical shade which creates on the band when you try scanning a page and you can't press the book very well; or here where you can clearly see part of a frame on the top. These are only few examples of what I was telling you, I can't check for each of his pictures that are growing day by day and, till now, have always been copyviols.
Please, I'm asking you if you can block him to avoid these things happening again and again (it's the third time that he uploads pictures without license and he doesn't even care of the warnings people gave him).
I really hope this time you will be so kind to reply to me. Thank you. --кıngsт☁n! 19:35, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi Kingston28,
sorry that I didn't reply to your earlier posting. I can do this work only in my spare-time and there are too many urgent things to do here, so that sometimes message slip through. The problem with Studio95's uploads is that though many of them may be copyvios, my usual 1st line of research (using pattern recognition by Google-Images) didn't yield any result for his uploads. I have checked them all! That means, other mechanism of search (requiring far more time) are needed to provide reasonable evidence for a copyvio. It's very unlikely that I will have time for this in the rest of 2014. So, you should either bring up this case on COM:VP or COM:AN, or try by yourself to find reasonable evidence for at least 1 of his images that it is not his own work. I have opened a DR for File:Arco_della_pace_milano_2014.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 19:37, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Dealing with a problematic user[edit]

Dear Túrelio,

Hello. I am pasting a query with regard to a problematic user on my Hindi Wikipedia user talk. I need your valuable help in the matter:


i would like to inform you about serious rules violation by user named User:राजु सुथार (this is his latest id).....he has created no less than 10 sock puppet ids here check user result......and you must have noticed that even after blocking his 1 id he is immediately creating a new 1......user is indulging in self advertisement, spamming, vandalism of pages and uploading of self pictures and family member's picture here.........and recently he is being found uploading self pictures on commons, 1 of which was deleted earlier can see discussion by clicking here and the account from which he uploaded the picture was blocked on commons click here, but again he uploaded his picture on commons this time from another account which has been nominate for deletion click here

my question there any way to block his access permanently from editing on wikipedia?? blocking of ip it seems is of no use because he is using dynamic ip which is changing every time......can we block him by identifying his machine mac-address??
more over i would like to request you to raise this question on commons because this guy is causing head ache here.....something should be done about such users......Sperm whale fluke.jpg Darth Whale वार्ता 03:42, 23 जनवरी 2015 (UTC)

Pictures Reinier Sonneveld and Emanuel Rutten[edit]

Hi Túrelio, you asked some questions about the licenses of the pictures I uploaded. All the pictures I uploaden were given personally to me by the photographers themselves. For every picture I named the organisation they work for or their professional name. I can not give full evidence of this, in juridical sense, but maybe this site proofs some points: [6] Here some of the pictures I uploaded are presented also, with the assurance that they are licence-free. I hope this will satisfy your questions! --Fosburyflop (talk) 13:26, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

File:House Raminten (3).jpg[edit]

Hello. Thx u for sent me a notification about the deletion. I don't really understand about the rules of Wiki commons, but as far as I know, as long as I don't take the banner or logo from web but instead to take it by myself with my camera, it still ok. I read it once somewhere here in commons, but I don't remember where. But if I get it wrong OR the rules has changed since the last time I read it, I want to tell you that I upload another 4 banner photos. The Waroeng of Raminten, Gudeg Bu Amad, gudeg Yu Djum, and Gudeg Yu Narni. All of those are my own photograph of the banner. Please delete it, too. Well, although I know that the owners of those banner won't mind if I upload it, but I just don't want to break Commons' rule. Sorry for bothering, but next time, if you don't mind, please chat me on my Indonesian user talk :D I rarely open commons except I want to upload photos. Fortunately I get your notification via my email. Thank you for your hard work and sorry for bothering. Okkisafire (talk) 15:24, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

I'll give you the links of the other four tomorrow. Please delete it, too. It's almost midnight here now :D . I just asked my friend about it and he said that I got it wrong. I should upload it on local wiki, not on commons. Thank you again, something like this always stresses me up. Okkisafire (talk) 16:23, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Okkisafire,
no need to be stressed about, as this happens even to experienced contributors. When you take a photography of a work of art (statue, sculpture, exceptional building) or of something, which might itself be copyrighted (billboard with advertisement, etc.), you are possibly infringing the copyright of the original creator of that work, provided it is still copyrighted (creator dead since 70 years?). Some countries have exceptions from copyright for works which are permanently installed in public space. This exception is called Freedom of panorama. However, the copyright-law of Indonesia has no usable Freedom of panorama-exception. Your image showed an advertisement, which might (or not) be copyrighted. --Túrelio (talk) 16:55, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Here it goes. Please delete these files, too:

50pxHj amad (2).jpg50px50px.

How about the photograph of postcards which are freely distributed as souvenirs by the owner? Or the photograph of some photos which are hanged on the shop's wall by its owner? Do I stil need to ask the owner to send an email to Commons or it already is described as "free use"? Okkisafire (talk) 01:38, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
And how about these files:

Gudeg yu Djum (5).jpg50px

Are these described as "Freedom of Panorama"? Actually I want to show the car, not the banner. And the second pict, I want to show the traditional packaging with bamboo basket, unfortunatelly it contains the logo of Yu Djum restaurant. If it does against the rule, please delete it also :D . Sorry for bothering you. Okkisafire (talk) 01:45, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Okkisafire,
I have speedy-tagged File:Waroeng of raminten.jpg, File:Yu narni (2).jpg and File:Gudeg yu Djum (3).jpg. I don't see a problem with File:Hj amad (2).jpg, as it IMO contains no creative content.
File:Gudeg yu Djum (5).jpg: If you just want to show the car, you could simply blank out the section showing the poster (and replace it by a dark grey).
File:Gudeg yu Djum (2).jpg is a borderline case, IMO. Do you know how old the image of the depicted woman is?
--Túrelio (talk) 07:55, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Better to delete all the pics. Actually, the car will be useless if I color it with grey lol. I do not kjow how old the image, but I know that the old woman is still alive, more than 80 years old by now. She is the owner of the franchise. And about Hj. Amad (2), that's a banner. I don't really understand what is creative content, but that banner has the logo and address of the franchise. It just the same as the other banner. Okkisafire (talk) 10:37, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I've deleted File:Gudeg yu Djum (2).jpg, as the portrait will still be in copyright if the woman is alive.
In regard to File:Gudeg yu Djum (5).jpg, I recommended you to blank out only the section showing the poster, not the total car. --Túrelio (talk) 09:37, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

O.k. What/Who is "AIP" and when might this photo have been shot? --Túrelio (talk) 06:30, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

I saw the name mentioned in the source. And Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was born in 1910 , almost 105 years ago. The pic was during his youth . So you can imagine how old the pic is.That's why i thought Public Domain as old pics become public domain--Cosmic Emperor (talk) 06:43, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

You need to find out, when and where this photo had been shot. The source-information "AIP" might help with that. Only then we can evaluate which country's legislation is relevant here. --Túrelio (talk) 06:47, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

AIP is American Institute of Physics , and this is the page -

This is the policy for usage of that pic - --Cosmic Emperor (talk) 07:09, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. But, what's written on the AIP site is a no-go for us. They just have collected images from different sources and authors. That's typical U.S.-"fair use". We cannot use such material. So far, we only know, that the immediate source-site got the photo from the AIP archive, which per se does not claim to be the author. So, you might either contact AIP and ask them for more information about the author and year of creation of the photo, or search the webs by yourself. --Túrelio (talk) 07:17, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

I found the date as 1938 here - . the person who took the picture can be an unknown photographer who is completely forgotten . --Cosmic Emperor (talk) 07:38, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Yann has found that it is from 1934 and has the caption "Portrait of a young Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar as Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge". This suggests that is has been shot in the U.K. Today, the U.K. has protection for 70 years pma[7]. However, I don't know how it was in 1934; might have been shorter. --Túrelio (talk)
As Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar in 1934 was shortly after his PhD, he might have gone to a photographer by himself. This would fit to the sentence "gift of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar" in the image caption. --Túrelio (talk) 13:17, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) - from the start of 1912 to the end of 1995 the UK copyright term was pma+50 years for an author who died on or before 31 December 1945. From 1 January 1996 onwards, any work that was still under copyright had the period extended to pma+70 years, which affect works by authors who died on or after 1 January 1946, because the fifty year period would not have run out yet. Much like the unpopular URAA, copyright was also restored to works by authors who died 1926-1945. Green Giant (talk) 15:39, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of photo[edit]

I received a notification from you that a picture that I uploaded may be deleted. The next day the picture was deleted. I appealed this action by providing proof that I have permission from the copyright holders to use the photo several days ago but have heard no reply. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Thank you,

Hi Andrew,
are you refering to File:Crunk Witch.jpg? If yes: material on facebook is not free per se. In addition, the Facebook account-holder might not be the copyright-holder. To where did you provide the above mentioned permission? The most recent image description did not contain any hint about a pending permission. Our team for the handling of permissions is OTRS. As they are also volunteers, it may take some time until you get a response. If they judge a permission as valid, they may restore the image by themselves. Alternatively, you ask may the volunteer who processes your request, to notify me. I can then restore the image. --Túrelio (talk) 06:30, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

copyright violation[edit]

Hi, please explain about this edit. the photo copied from here (with better quality) and uploaded in one of Spam-blacklist URLs ( with new watermark and this is a copyright violation. this website using CC-BY-SA license but all of contents are copy from other websites. (talk) 14:18, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Arash
I had seen then the CC note at lower right and had assumed it's their own content. If you are sure that they copied it all from other websites, I can restore the copyvio-tags. --Túrelio (talk) 14:25, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure they violating copyright and most of their photos must be deleted from Commons but I dont know about all contents. the website is dubbing[8] and sell[9] hollywood movies without any permission and their work is illegal. (talk) 16:44, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Oppose-Hi. I am not agree with because If you check watermarks of the two photos [10]-[11] and compare them, you can't see any retouch in each of them. either of them are original. I think there are two possible: 1-The Association of Tehran Young Voice Actors published these photos without any watermark and then add watermark to them, but some black sites, copy it's pictures before adding watermark. 2-some bloggers, stole a few original pictures of The Association of Tehran Young Voice Actors and show them in their weblogs.

Also, quality of this picture is not better than original picture and blogger just resized original picture because if you check their hitogram, you can see a Histogram! Is this an accident?!

Any way, I can't see any convincing reason to approve that Association of Tehran Young Voice Actors, borrowed pictures of it's studio recording from a cheap website.Moghime ARAK (talk) 18:43, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

If claims that borrowed it's pictures from another websites, he must show us original address of every one pictures of this gallery. can he?Moghime ARAK (talk) 18:52, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

  • the source page (jazzaab) with photos fetch from 7 january 2012
  • the file that uploaded in common is from here and you can see the upload date here: 03-Jun-2013 (1 year later). (talk) 22:15, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

I told that a blogger could steal 4 pictures of the company and publish them before piblishing by the owner. Is n't it logic? I emphasize: there are hundreds of official pictures of the company in it's gallery and wants us ignore them for just 4 stolen pictures?!

Until now, two admins accepted these photos ([12] and [13]) and an admin deleted the pictures had been tagged by you.(see in my talk page) Now, what is your decision?

Image issues between Thiagofernandob and EricEgo2012?[edit]

You dealt with EricEgo2012 (talk · contribs) a few weeks ago on a block for uploading inappropriate commercial images of actresses; I'm getting the feeling they're trying to kill collateral damage to their account by using the new account Thiagofernandob (talk · contribs) and this Flickr account to try to get their preferred images up, if you could check this; I've already reverted Thiagofernandob's adds on Thanks.

Hi Nate, thanks. Though I didn't know of the connection, I recognized File:Adrienne Eliza Bailon.jpg as clearly Flickr-washing. So far, my research didn't yield any external hits for File:KielyWilliams.jpg, though I've no doubt that it's also a copyvio.

Hi FR,
I have no idea to what you are relating, as there is no deletion associated with your account. --Túrelio (talk) 08:41, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
You are probably relating to File:Actor Frank Ridley Portrait.jpeg, which had been uploaded by User:Jbaysinger. He had emptied his talkpage. Therefore, I didn't find it immediately. In relation to the portrait-shot: did you really shoot it by yourself or did you just pay a photographer to do it? In the latter case you need to be sure that you acquired enough rights to release the image under a free license, which allows anybody to use this image for any purpose, provided the license-terms are met. Otherwise you would be exposing yourself to litigation by the photographer. If you are sure about that, then send an email from your business email account to (OTRS) in which you should state your rights in this image and your will to release it under the choosen license. After you have send this email, you may drop me a note, so that I can temporarily undelete the image, until an OTRS-volunteer has checked the permission and put a "ticket" on the page. --Túrelio (talk) 08:53, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
The same applies to File:Honest Gil Fulbright SOLD Poster.jpg. --Túrelio (talk) 08:57, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Photo Deletion[edit]

Hi! I inserted a photo on the page for Camren Bicondova... I'm lost as heck on this whole photo selection thing. Even if I find or have an image that seems to be under "free use" I have no idea which commons selection to indicate and thus it always gets deleted. I've read the help section on this repeatedly, but I just don't get it. I don't suppose you could have mercy on my Wiki-illiterate soul and help me out here? There's a million press photos of this actress seemingly available for use but I have no idea what would be acceptable for use on Wikipedia and the past couple times I've tried, they've been flagged for deletion. HELP? :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Triskele84 (talk • contribs)

Hi Triskele84,
the image File:Camren Bicondova San Diego Comic Con 2014.png, which you had uploaded, could be traced to Getty Images agency[14], which is known worldwide for suing anybody who uses their images without paying for.
As a general remark, "press photos" are not suitable to be uploaded to Commons. Though they are "freely" distributed to the press, they are not under a license, which is free enough for Commons. As another general note: highly professionally looking shots of actors/actresses are rather rarely created by amateurs/volunteers, who offer them under a free license, but rather by professional photographers, who sell/license them for money. So, when you find suitable images of your actor/actress of choice on Flickr, you have to keep that in mind, even if the photo is offered under a free license. You cannot always trust the claimed license on Flickr and alike, you have to use your brain. There are a few exceptions, such as Eva Rinaldi and Gage Skidmore, who are professional celebrity-photographers and offer a lot of material under a Commons-campatible license on Flickr. --Túrelio (talk)

Turelio, this time I selected an image that according to the owner was specifically allowed for use under the proper license as selected when uploaded to Wiki Commons. This particular image should NOT have been deleted from the Camren Bicondova article. This one ( clearly states on the Flickr page for the photo that it was "Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 Generic" which is what I selected upon uploading to Commons. Please undo the deletion of this image. --Triskele84

Regrettably, this image is not free enough for Commons. As you can see from the icon with the striken-through $ sign, it is limited to non-commercial uses. Per our policy COM:L, such a restriction is not allowed on Commons. Commons-allowed CC-licenses are CC-Zero, CC-BY and CC-BY-SA. Not allowed are CC-..-NC, CC-..-ND and CC-..-NC/ND. --Túrelio (talk) 07:09, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Why then is "Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 Generic" an option in the upload process? It's incredibly misleading, making one believe that kind of an image IS acceptable... strange, and frustrating. What about an image from an actual actor's Instagram or Facebook profile that they own. Would that be allowed, as it is owned by the actual actor in question and used on their page? --Triskele84

In which upload-process? If you call Upload on Commons, go to section B and then click on Flickr, you get this, which clearly shows which licenses are allowed and which are not.
We cannot accept images from Instagram and Facebook without an expressed permission being sent to as both hosters do not check authorship and licensing of user's uploads. They are simply not reliable in this regard. --Túrelio (talk) 07:20, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Retard pour l'envoi de l'autorisation du fichier: Pierre Saint-Paul, André Morain 1999.jpg[edit]

Je reviens vers vous, André Morain vient de me tel, il n'a pas encore renvoyé l'autorisation: il bloque sur le fait que l'on peut utiliser l'oeuvre dans un but commercial, et pouvez-vous m'indiquer "...des exigences imposées par la licence... (pour les modifications)" et il veut garder le droit d'être cité. Pouvez-vous m'indiquer la licence la plus appropriée (avec son texte) pour cette demande?

Bien cordialement, --Philippe HENRION (talk) 10:53, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Copyright issues[edit]

Hello. I will research whether or not I have a right to publish these photos with my father either tonight or tomorrow. He's been helping me on wikinews, and he's better at organization and research than I am. I don't want to do it on my own because when I did things on my own on English wikipedia and simple English wikipedia I just made a bunch of mistakes, but I will address your concerns. I believe that those photos were all already in the public domain, but if I was mistaken I will delete them. PaulBustion88 (talk) 20:10, 15 May 2015 (UTC)


Hello. Can you take a look at these images [15], [16]. What does "donated in 1948" mean?--Melikov Memmed (talk) 11:49, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

They should be free, as being from 16xx and 17xx. Without further information I could imagine that "donated in 1948" means that the former owner of these painting donated them to the Kinsey Inst. However, that would be rather irrelevant in regard to copyright. --Túrelio (talk) 12:46, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Tags on File:Brooke-de-Lench.JPG and File:SuperSikhCover.jpg[edit]

Hello Turelio, Thank you for your notifications about the File:Brooke-de-Lench.JPG and File:SuperSikhCover.jpg. However, the pictures release licenses are being sent by the copyright owners themselves. I may have taken some time to insert the appropriate code during the upload process. Thank you for your patience. Valenciatist (talk) 17:06, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Valenciatist,
do I understand you correctly, that permissions/releases by the copyright owners for these 2 images have been sent to (OTRS)? If yes, you can insert {{OTRS pending}} on the filepages by yourself or I can do it for you. --Túrelio (talk) 18:33, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi Turelio,
That is correct. The copyright owners of these 2 images have sent the releases to I have attempted to show you the appropriate code in my previous message but it appeared as an image. Would you mind restoring these two images that have been deleted so fast? Thank you for your understanding and patience. Valenciatist (talk) 19:58, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi Valenciatist,
I've removed the no-perm-tag from File:Brooke-de-Lench.JPG. However, File:SuperSikhCover.jpg had already been deleted by a colleague, which is no surprise as we get a lot of movie posters, most of which are copyvios. I recommend you notify me the moment you get a positive signal from OTRS; I can then undelete the file. --Túrelio (talk) 20:36, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi Turelio,
Thanks, I appreciate your action on File:Brooke-de-Lench.JPG and will let you know when I have news about File:SuperSikhCover.jpg .

userpage Marcelo Musarra[edit]

Hi Turélio Why did you block my page? It seem to be that you did it because you felt that my page is "out of scope", as is shown by the attached picture.

Page of Marcelo Musarra deleted becouse Turélio believed tha it is "out of scope"

Please, let me know what I did that is "out of scope".

Thanks, best regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marcelo Musarra (talk • contribs)

Hi Marcelo Musarra,
I have deleted it because the content was merely promotional and thereby out of our scopre. So far, you have no contributions/uploads to Commons. In case you want to contribute valuable/useful free content to Commons, you should do so. In that case you can put on your userpage some information about use (such as language skills) which is of use for other Commons' user who want to communicate with you. However, if you actually do not want to contribute content to Commons, you should not use Commons as a substitute for Facebook. Regards. --Túrelio (talk) 18:29, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

You may delete "File:יפעת שאשא-ביטון Yifat Sasha-Biton.JPG" that I have uploaded[edit]

The image was given to her as a present, so I figurd she is the copyrightholder and can give me a permission, but by any case I will upload another image. I talked to Knesset Member Yifat Sasha-Biton and she will give me a different image, this time from someone close to her so it will be easy to rearch him and ask his permission. --Midrashah (talk) 18:38, 20 May 2015 (UTC)


I think you need to restore File:Coral Garden.jpg, which you deleted with the reasoning "[ Richard Ling says here he is not the creator, and that it is a copyright violation])". Richard never stated he wasn't the creator (I'm not going to quote it but read it carefully), he stated that Deborah W. reuploaded his photo without giving the source (see the EXIF which is still intact). Also this was a widely used image and was uploaded back in 2007. Bidgee (talk) 07:30, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done. I did actually take a look at the Flickr site, where the image is under a CC-NC license and which has a comment by Richard Ling: "Unfortunately this photo is not the work of the uploader (ie, it is a copyright violation); I would not recommend using it elsewhere on Flickr or linking to it from other sites." --Túrelio (talk) 07:33, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for undeleting, though admins need to double check in-depth and not rely on the nominator. Bidgee (talk) 07:49, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Gelöschte Bilder - Lizenvereinbarung missachtet?[edit]

Hallo Túrelio,

leider musste ich feststellen das jene Bilder entfernt wurden, welche der Obi-Bildersammlung entspringen aber frei zur Nutzung verfügbar sind. Gerne wüde ich erfahren, wo genau gegen die Lizenzvereinbarungen verstoßen wurde.

Beste Grüße


Hallo Lukarsius,
ich sehe, z.B. auf, nirgendwo etwas von freier Lizenz. Dass etwas zur "kostenlosen" Nutzung angeboten wird, bedeutet nicht zwangsläufig dass es unter einer freien Lizenz steht, die auch kommerzielle Nutzung und die Erstellung von Bearbeitungen erlaubt, wie es uns Richtlinien (COM:L) verlangen. --Túrelio (talk) 18:20, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
