Copyright Violation[edit]

I am writing for the uploads I made. In addition I saw you deleted my user page.

First Issue:

[File:Gizem Sözeri.jpg] File:Gizem_Sözeri.jpg

[File:Batuhan Civelek.jpg] File:Batuhan_Civelek.jpg

I could not find any time to write about these photographs. Now I have and I am writing to you but they were deleted already. I uploaded them yesterday, and the violation was the copyright. However you added the link from the web, one of the links were from the website I created and I edit. The website is

Also the Twitter Account that I am also in charge of. I can send you, if necessary, associated screenshots that shows I am in control of the website and the Twitter account.

For both photographs, you can find them in the musician profile pages in our website:

I created the profile pages for our musicians and I also have all possible permissions to use them. They deleted because the claim was I violated the copyrights of the photographs. I want to add the social media link that we use to inform our audience about our soloists:

For Gizem Sözeri:

For Batuhan Civelek:

I can also send you a screenshot that I have the control of the website

- Second Issue:

For the photographs, that

File:Ömer Berk Taraklı.jpg

File:Batuhan Civelek.jpg

There is a issue and these issues effect my other uploads. They are:

File:Ömer Berk Taraklı Weber AGSO Artwork.jpg

File:Batuhan Civelek Lebrun Oboe Concerto AGSO Artwork.jpg

It says that they contain image within image. It is true but they are the album artwork of I release and the image within image is my original content. I want to add our albums’ Spotify links.

For Ömer Berk Taraklı:

For Batuhan Civelek:

- Third Issue:

Lastly, I have another issue about another recording’s artwork. This time there is no soloist, and I am the conductor. However I do not want to take the credit, I want to give the credit to my orchestra. That’s why I did not use my photograph in the artwork. (I give the credit to the soloists If there is any. For example, File:Ömer Berk Taraklı Weber AGSO Artwork.jpg , File:Batuhan Civelek Lebrun Oboe Concerto AGSO Artwork.jpg ). I added the photograph of the orchestra. I have every possible right to use it because it is the product of my team. I also use the photograph in our website. The link is: you can see this photograph in the background of the first visual you in the page.

The artwork I am talking about is this: File:Barış Demirezer Beethoven AGSO Artwork.jpg

This is the Spotify link of our album:

I am really thankful for your efforts. I am really aware of the community rules and I deeply respect them. I can image how many situations you face that violate the community rules. I also deeply respect you for your volunteer efforts for making this community dependable.


Barış Demirezer (talk) 14:58, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi Barış Demirezer,
these are a lot of questions. I don't have enough time today for that. So, you will need a bit of patience.
Regarding File:Barış Demirezer Beethoven AGSO Artwork.jpg: here are possibly 2 copyrights to consider: 1) the photographer of the orchestra-shot and 2) the designer of the cover-composition. You should provide a permission to (OTRS) which includes boths aspects. If you designed the cover as such, you only need to obtain the photographers permission. If the cover-rights are with the record company, you need their permission. The permission should ideally come directly from the photographer and should mention the filename on Commons. --Túrelio (talk)
Dear Túrelio,
Thank you for your time. If any other thing is necessary please inform me. I can immediately supply what you need. Thank you again for your time and effort!
Barış Demirezer (talk) 18:05, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
Dear Túrelio,
I sent an e-mail for all of the documents I uploaded and OTRS made necessary changes. The situation is the same with the photos deleted. Is it possible to undelete the photos and allow me to give necessary permissions? File:Gizem Sözeri.jpg and File:Batuhan Civelek.jpg are the photographs I am talking about and ask you to undelete them. I do not want to re-upload them before learning your approach to this situations. I do not want to act without your consent. In addition you deleted my user profile. Is it possible to undo it? Thank you for your time

a strange deletion request[edit]

Hi again. I have gotten a rather strange deletion request for a file that I meticulously researched to ensure it met PD-Russia-1996 rules (I found a 1945 publication of it with no author attribution, and an archivist selling it at an auction gave no indication of who the author was, and author remains unknown). The initial deletion template was rather vague, saying "It looks like an mistaken license.". I thought I was being trolled at first since I was not mistaken with the licence and provided publication information, but apparently it's an experienced user. As requested I provided a link to the publication directly, which I did, but then he went on about how the person at the auction might secretly know the name of the author, (even though the back of the photo card had just a number on it, no photographer name at all) etc. What do you make of this? I've gotten a few similar nominations like this in the past that have turned out to be "keep". I have to say I am a bit annoyed by all the unusual "what-ifs" and goalpost-moving. I mean, if the auctioneer knows/knew the photographer name but kept it secret from the public, one would think it would be considered anonymous still? After all, if a samizdat work was written by a few authors who knew each other but kept their identities secret, it is considered anonymous since the public doesn't know.--PlanespotterA320 (talk) 20:18, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

recent relation of faulty shower image[edit]

Hi I was wondering why the image was deleted as this image is a free image and was taken myself and has no copyright .kind regards Craig noble — Preceding unsigned comment added by "craignoble666" (talk • contribs) 16:50, 23 December 2019 (UTC)


Hallo @Túrelio:,
Für die kommenden Weihnachtstage wünsche ich Dir alles Gute.
Möge uns das neue Jahr 2020 hier und überall ein friedliches Miteinander und eine erfolgreiche Zeit bringen.
Ganz herzlich möchte ich mich bei Dir für Deine stete Hilfe bedanken, wenn ich hier nicht mehr weiter weiß oder meine Nerven etwas blank liegen.
Danke und beste Grüße. Orchi (talk) 20:55, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

Schnelllöschung aller Dateien von User:Klagenfurter Dancer[edit]

Du hast heute alle Dateien von User:Klagenfurter Dancer schnellgelöscht. Das war aber definitiv kein Fall für eine Schnelllöschung, wie hier begründet wurde. Es ist die offizielle Flickr-Seite von de:Die Grünen Kärnten. Der Fotograf war in der Partei involviert und hat auch eine eigene Flickr-Seite (auf der er die Bilder allerdings nicht hochgeladen hat. Die Flickr-Seite der Grünen Kärnten lädt manche Bilder mit "Alle Rechte vorbehalten" hoch. Für diese Bilder gelten die in der Löschbegründung genannten Vorgaben sicherlich. Die gelöschten Bilder wurden aber ausnahmslos mit CC-Lizenzen hochgeladen. Man kann davon ausgehen, dass der Landesverband einer professionellen politischen Partei das nicht versehentlich so macht. Es gibt bei Wikimedia Commons bereits zahlreiche Bilder von derselben Flickr-Seite der Grünen aus Kärnten mit CC-Lizenz, die nach Jahren bis heute nie beanstandet wurden. --2003:C3:4F46:F944:1CD5:51B6:576A:79B9 12:35, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Hallo IP,
dass etwas bisher nicht aufgefallen ist, gilt schon auf der Wikipedia nicht als Entschuldigung. In letzter Zeit sind halt öfter gleichartige Probleme mit Flickrkonten von Institutionen aufgefallen. Diejenigen, die hier schon etwas länger aktiv sind, wissen aus Erfahrung, dass man Lizenzen auch von Institutionen, die ja oft nicht selbst der Urheber sind, immer mit einer Prise Salz nehmen muss. Wenn der Flickrkonto-Inhaber als behaupteter Bildrechteinhaber die von WvB angesprochenen Widersprüche zufriedenstellend aufklärt, können die gelöschten Bilder problemlos wiederhergestellt werden. --Túrelio (talk) 14:30, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Hallo Turelio, ich habe diese Fotos ebenfalls beobachtet und keine so eindeutige URV gesehen, da diese Fotos bei Flickr mit CC und eben der anderen Lizenz doppelt lizenziert wurde. Auch ich habe früher schon Fotos von denen hochgeladen, die sehrwohl mit wechselnder Lizenz hochladen also schon wissen worum es geht. Deshalb verstehe ich die Schnellöschung ebenfalls nicht wirklich. -- gruß K@rl (talk) 16:33, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
@K@rl, wie ich oben schon schrieb ist in letzter Zeit das eine oder andere institutionelle Flickr-Konto durch gewisse Ungereimtheiten der Lizenzierung aufgefallen. Ich habe kein Problem damit, die Bilder temporär zu entlöschen, müsste sie dann aber sofort in einen LA stecken, denn die Angelegenheit muss doch ordentlich (d.h. Erklärung des Lizenzgebers gegenüber OTRS) geklärt werden. --Túrelio (talk) 18:01, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Zudem lässt sich mit Web-Archiv feststellen, dass es diesen Infotext im Januar 2017 noch gar nicht gab Somit stellt sich also die Frage: Kann ein Flickr-Accountinhaber durch die Erstellung eines Infoseiten-Textes nach der Veröffentlichung mit CC-Lizenz diese CC-Lizenz zurücknehmen? Ich würde sagen: Nein. Und alle hochgeladenen CC-Bilder stammen aus Zeiträumen zwischen 2013 und 2014. --2003:C3:4F46:F944:1CD5:51B6:576A:79B9 17:30, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
@IP, das spielt keine Rolle, denn zum Zeitpunkt des Kopierens nach Commons war der Hinweis offensichtlich vorhanden. Es geht darum, die Nachnutzer der auf Commons gehosteten Medien vor URV/Schadenersatzforderungen zu schützen. Übrigens: Falls du User:Klagenfurter Dancer bist, warum logst du dich nicht ein? --Túrelio (talk) 18:01, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
auch das ist nicht bewiesen, denn wer sagt, dass er es über Flickr2commons verschoben hat. Ich habe als Anfänger auch Fotos lokal gespeichert und dann irgendwann hochgeladen. wenn es korrekt geht, fällt das niemanden auf. --K@rl (talk) 18:22, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Transfer to Commons[edit]

Hi Túrelio. Could the following images be transferred to Commons? And if possible, could you do it? Thank you.--Xabier (talk) 21:07, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi Xabier,
I'll look into it on saturday. --Túrelio (talk) 22:54, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you anyway. Another user has already transferred them.--Xabier (talk) 17:14, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Just leaving a note since I remember you speak German. But someone may want to check this for appropriateness. It seems likely to be spam/promotional. GMGtalk 15:26, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Rampant copyright infringements[edit]

Hello. I come from English Wikipedia, and when a contributor is known to have 4-5 or more flagrant copyright violations, we open an investigation of all their contributions, because the violations we find are often merely the "tip of the iceberg". I wonder if any process is available here on Commons, where copyright is possibly much more likely to be infringed? As you know, I have examined the contributions of User:Thuy Ho and found the vast majority to be copyright violations. Administrators have mostly agreed with me, except for a few instances where you merely reverted because you couldn't find any evidence. I suggest that this contributor be investigated. I left some of his uploads alone because they appeared to be simple non-professional panoramic type snapshots that could be taken by anyone. But some people surely have a knack for stealing photos and presenting them as "Own work" and slipping by the copyright filter here. I find them once in a while coming to English Wikipedia and linking to their uploads. I strive to be thorough in wiping out their contributions when I can plainly see they are all copyvios. Is there any help or relief for people like me? Or should I just do them one at a time? Elizium23 (talk) 22:39, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Offensichtliche URV[edit]

Hallo Túrelio,

mir fallen immer wieder offensichtliche URV's auf Commons auf. Schema immer gleich: Niedrige Auflösung für 2019/2020, fehlende Exif-Daten, Pkw-Modelle einer bestimmten Marke, immer wieder neue Accounts mit Ramschuploads (wiederum mit Exif - zur Tarnung?), unterschiedliche Länderkennzeichen und andere Details (mediterrane Landschaft mit Olivenbäumen passt nicht zum tschechischen Kennzeichen). Wegen der niedrigen Auflösung und Unschärfe gehe ich von Screenshots aus Videos aus. Betrifft bis dato folgende User:

Wäre generell für das Löschen eines Großteils der Bilder von neuen Pkw-Modellen und Sperre der User. Was meinst du? Was weiter machen? Danke dir! Pan Tau (talk) 08:28, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

Hallo Pan Tau, sorry, ich bin bislang noch nicht dazu gekommen. Hoffentlich am Freitag. --Túrelio (talk) 19:11, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

Deletion request question[edit]

Hi Túrelio, can you help me see how you can save the images that were nominated in this deletion request [1] Many of those images were uploaded 10 years ago with licenses in the public domain (Egypt, Lebanon, Syria) respectively. A week ago a reviewing user nominated them for deletion saying that the source was not specified. The images are in the public domain from the beginning of the last or mid-century, are all over the internet and are part of the cultural heritage of those countries that used them for their publications in the newspapers. All of these images are only to illustrate Wikipedia posts. Is there any way I can amend them? thanks.--Derbake (talk) 22:03, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

Group delete[edit]

Hi, i need a (Commons:Deletion requests/Mass deletion) request for all of my uploads.05F2uIhfx0Rv (talk) 20:18, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletes[edit]

Hallo Túrelio; ich habe in letzter Zeit ein paar offene DRs geschlossen, bei denen auf die Datei in der Zwischenzeit ein Schnelllöschantrag gestellt wurde, den du danach umgesetzt, aber dabei den DR offengelassen hattest, Beispiel Commons:Deletion requests/File:Robert Blaich.jpg (DR-Template stand auch immer noch auf der Seite). Wäre vielleicht ganz praktisch, wenn du in solchen Fällen auch gleich den Löschantrag erledigen würdest. Wollte nur darauf hinweisen, keine grosse Sache :-) Gestumblindi (talk) 01:10, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Danke für die Erinnerung. Hab mir danach Mühe gegeben, immer daran zu denken. --Túrelio (talk) 09:24, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Filemover rights request[edit]

Hi there. Several days ago, I put in a request for filemover rights over at Commons:Requests for rights, and the guideline at the top of the page says "[i]f your request has remained unanswered for several days, consider personally asking an administrator".

As I said in my nomination, I'm a prolific file uploader with an unfortunate bad habit of typos in filenames, and I would sooner take on the responsibility of correcting such filename errors myself than burden other editors with my mistakes. (In fact, the reason why your username stuck out to me at Special:ListUsers/sysop was because you've answered a few of my rename requests yourself!)

If there's anything you can do to speed the process along, it would be most helpful and appreciated. Thank you.

-- Andre Carrotflower (talk) 04:16, 7 May 2020 (UTC)


The Cfccreates flickr ID has been a rich source of images of people associated with movies. I've uploaded well over a thousand images they posted on flickr, and about 400 headshots I cropped from those images.

This is the first time they have requested the deletion of an image. I didn't want to say this at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Kathryn Emslie at a CFC event in L.A. - Honouring John Fawcett and Graeme Manson (16740223837).jpg - but I think the explanation for the deletion is vanity. Ms Emslie is part of the management team at the Canadian Film Centre. Whoever runs the cfccreates flickr id is presumably a lot more junior than Ms Emslie.

Anyhow, since was one they uploaded, I think File:CFC in L.A. - Honouring John Fawcett and Graeme Manson (16740223837).jpg is unobjectionable.

It never occurred to me to consider the flatteringness of the crop of Ms Emslie. But I don't think File:Virginia Rankin at a CFC event in L.A. - Honouring John Fawcett and Graeme Manson (16740223837).jpg is particularly unflattering. Anyhow, she isn't CFC management. So I am happy to let sleeping dogs lie.

Hallo Túrelio, heute bin ich über diese Seite [2] gestolpert. Kann es sein, dass sich bei den Bildern unter dem Link "Quelle" und weiteren Links der Seite nur Spam befindet? Beste Grüße. Orchi (talk) 19:35, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Hallo Orchi,
in der Tat. Das ist das typische Bild, wenn der ursprüngliche Domaininhaber eine Seite aufgegeben hat. Die paar Bilder, die ich mir angeschaut habe, sind ja alle 2015 hochgeladen worden. Da sie anscheinend im Kontext irgendeiner Aktion hochgeladen wurden (es gibt ja sogar einen eigenen Baustein), denke ich mal, dass die Lizenz heute nicht unbedingt hinterfragt werden muss; allerdings könnten Nachnutzer durch den heutigen Inhalt des Quuelllinks verärgert werden. Ich werde mal meine Kollegen fragen, ob wir für solche Fälle eine etablierte Vorgehensweise haben. Interessant: bei den ältesten 5 Uploads ist der Inhalt der Quelle noch in Ordnung. --Túrelio (talk) 18:55, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
...die letzten Seiten hatte ich auch gesehen und habe dann etliche Sichproben gemacht. Ich bin mal gespannt, wie wie Du und Deine Kollegen die Angelegenheit sehen. Grüße. Orchi (talk) 19:42, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

File deleted[edit]

My file cook_the_blues_are_still_blue_350ppi.jpg was deleted for possible copyright infringement.

The file in question is a photograph of a painting of my own creation. The painting uses parody and significantly alters the original. As a work of art, it does not infringe on any copyright laws. The file was uploaded to Flickr and is a public domain image. Could you undelete the file please?

Benjamincookart (talk) 12:44, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Correction, the file in question is cook_blues_are_still_blue_350ppi.jpg Benjamincookart (talk) 13:07, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Benjamincookart,
to understand you correctly: at the start of the "chain" there was an original painting or ?, not created by you. Based on this, you created another painting, which technically (and eventually legally) might be considered a derivative of the original. Finally, you took a photography of your painting. Right?
I am aware that in art there is a longstanding tradition to create new works based (to a different degree) on previous works of others. However, in modern times (copyright laws) and especially here on Commons, where we claim that all material may be legally re-used in any manner, including commercial use, the chain of copyright needs to be evaluated properly.
Back to your case: if the original is out of copyright already, there is no problem for derivatives. If the original is still in copyright, it needs to be evaluated whether your work is legally a derivative of the other original and thereby may infringe the other artists copyright. As such an evaluation is complicated, it cannot be made on my talkpage. I would consider putting the image into a regular deletion-request, which allows a broad discussion and input from others, provided there is at least a reasonable perspective for not being a derivative. As has already be hinted at Commons:Undeletion_requests/Archive/2020-07#Cook_Blues_Are_Still_Blue_350ppi.jpg, the typical exceptions used by the media (press) and in critical commentary, i.e. the fair-use clause, is not applicable here, as Commons is legally not allowed to host such material. If you want to use the image only or mainly on :en Wikipedia, you should drop the case here and try local upload at :en, claiming fair-use. --Túrelio (talk) 06:59, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

Лисагор (File:Artwork. Lisagor Portrait.jpg)[edit]

Я увлекаюсь графикой, портретами архитекторов 20 века. Они все умерли. Поэтому я изучаю их прижизненные фотографии и создаю свою графику. У меня несколько графических портретов, в том числе Лисагора. Я сейчас помещу ещё один на склад, это моя работа. Вы её тоже поставите на удаление? --Elena4gb (talk) 03:05, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Elena4gb,
you claimed File:Artwork. Lisagor Portrait.jpg to be own work from 2020, whereas User:Lesless, who had copyvio-tagged the image, found that the depicted person had died in the 1930ies and that the image was not originally your work. When you upload images (or other media) to Commons, you neeed to take care that it is truely your own work or is evidently already in the public domain. In most countries of the world, copyright stays with the original creator until 70 years after his/her death. --Túrelio (talk) 07:05, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi NaimFR,
with regard to File:MuslimNazaev.jpg: The fact that this image was on Commons since 2017 has little relevance. Just 2 days ago we became aware of an image that was on Commons since 2015 and claimed to be under a free license, when in fact it was a shot by an agency-photographer. We were notified because a re-user had to pay 300 Euros in license-fees to the agency. In order to avoid such problems we try to check all images thoroughly. How should we know of your relation to So, if you really shot this photo by yourself, send a confirmation from your official wsport email address to or to (in Russian) and confirm that you are the photographer or the rightsholder. Thereafter I can restore the image. --Túrelio (talk) 10:44, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
with regard to File:Abdulaev abuyazit.jpg: this image was a duplicate of File:Абуязид Абдулаевич Абдулаев, 1974г..jpg and therefore redirected. --Túrelio (talk) 10:46, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Repeated file[edit]

Hello, how are you, my friend. I want to ask you a question: is it allowed to create multiple files of the same style? A user created a file equal to another and I consider that it is unnecessary since it is the same. Check the following:

File:AMLO 2020.jpg and File:President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in the White House (cropped).jpg

The last one already has several days created, it is better to load the format for the last file and not create each style. Sorry if I don't link, I don't know how to do it.--Dimartz (talk) 16:14, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Dimartz,
I've now linked the 2 files; you can see the required code.
With regard to your question: generally, one should avoid uploading true duplicates (will be speedy-deleted) or near-duplicates (require a deletion-request). However, in this specific case it is justifiable IMO to have the 2 variants of this crop. Some people might prefer the version where the head is positioned exactly vertically, others where the head appears to be slightly tilted; it's depending on personal taste. As both variants are currently in use, we should keep them both. --Túrelio (talk) 18:47, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Túrelio, I noticed that you just deleted a file on FOP grounds. There is another image of the same statue that I flagged as a copyvio on the same FOP grounds yesterday, but that was converted to a deletion request: Commons:Deletion requests/File:A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 15th July 2020.jpg. I don't know if you want to contribute there, or whether it affects the file you already deleted, but I thought I'd better let you know about it. -- DeFacto (talk). 10:30, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Hallo Túrelio, ich bin nicht ganz glücklich über die Neuanlage von Category:Friedrich Wilhelm Kritzinger. Es deutet einiges darauf hin, dass der Rufname "Wilhelm" war (seine Werke hat er überwiegend nur als "Wilhelm" oder "F. Wilhelm" publiziert), und ich versuche gerade zu klären, ob de:Friedrich Wilhelm Kritzinger (Theologe) nicht auf das einfachere Lemma verschoben werden sollte, wohingegen der Namensvetter de:Friedrich Wilhelm Kritzinger (Ministerialdirektor) wohl wirklich unter dem Doppel-Vornamen bekannter ist, und Category:Friedrich Kritzinger dementsprechend besser dieses Lemma erhielte. --FordPrefect42 (talk) 14:03, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

V Madhusoodanan Nair Sahithya Akademi Picture[edit]

Hello Túrelio, this message concerns the deletion of a picture of Prof. V Madhusoodanan Nair receiving the Sahithya Akademi Award. This picture was taken with the permission of V Madhusoodanan Nair, therefore, I do not understand why the picture was deleted under a copyright violation. Please let me know the reason the picture was deleted, thank you for understanding :). Below is the link of the file being deleted

Thank you!Vmadhgrand (talk) 20:21, 16 July 2020 (UTC) Vmadhgrand 7/16/2020

Hi Vmadhgrand,
the image was deleted as it had been tagged by another user for copyvio-suspicion as he had found it published on another website. This evidence alone was a bit weak. However, the image-file also had no metadata (EXIF), which would be rather unusual for a photo shot by a modern camera.
So, to get this straight: Did you really shoot this photo by yourself or did you get from somebody/smoewhere? Also, I am not sure what you meant by "picture was taken with the permission"? This could mean he allowed you to photograph him, which would be rather unnecessary in the depicted situation, or he allowed you to take it from is website or something. --Túrelio (talk) 20:33, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

I've seen you have tagged a number of these images for speedy-deletion. I would recommend you to put them all together into one regular (not speedy) deletion-request.

File:Nothing to fear.jpg[edit]

Hey there. Several Houres ago you removed a file that I uploaded a day ago under name of "Nothing_to_fear". I received a notification waith a copyrights violation warning. just letting you know, this picture was already uploaded by another user but I wasn't able to attach it to the article that I was working on. I translated to Farsi but the artwork wasn't able on Farsi database so I tried to upload one more time in order to use it in the same order that it was used in the English version. AshkHead (talk)

Hi AshkHead,
I see. With the other "picture" you are likely refaering to However, when you look at that site, you can see clearly that this image 1) is not on Commons, and 2) is claimed as "fair-use", which is legal construction of U.S. copyright-law. Such material is not allowed on Commons. The image itself shows the artwork of an album cover. Such images are usually always copyrighted, either with the record company or with the artists. So, you need to obtain a valid permission from the rights-holder before uploading it to Commons. --Túrelio (talk) 06:57, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

I'm a bit surprised of the short notice since the bot says I have 7 days to provide the required missing infos. Now the file is deleted, I can no longer recover the source link to check this out.

Hi Hiouf,
here is the source-link:
As you can see, it's clearly labeled as "All rights reserved". This was the reason for me to speedy-delete it, in order to save inadvertent external re-users from litigation for copyright-infringement. Of course, feel free to try to convince the photographer to release this image under a free license (CC-BY or CC-BY-SA). I will then gladly undelete it. --Túrelio (talk) 09:16, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick reply. I do see the licence CC-BY-SA, just under the list of best identifiers. You can even see in the comments that I asked the observer to change the licence. However, it is true that if you click on the information button for the photo, you go to another page that mentions "All rights reserved". It's like there are 2 licences for the same photo ?

@Hiouf: iNaturalist allows users to apply different licenses to their photos and their "observations", similarly to how we allow files in a myriad of different licenses but all file description pages are cc-by-sa-3.0.

Thanks for the deletion[edit]

I talked to a fotographer who agreed to one of her works being published in Wikipedia under CC 3.0. I uploaded the file, so it could be unambiguously identified in the letter by the link, sent her a mail asking for her formal permission according to the preliminary agreement, and wrote on the talk page of the file that OTRS is pending, in the hope that anyone feeling the urge to delete would read it and restrain themselves for a couple of days. You, on the other hand, decided that ignoring the notice would be a much more rational approach. Now, pray tell, what in your mind would be the correct procedure for files that are in the process of getting OTRS confirmation, to avoid such behaviour as yours? --Ehitaja (talk) 10:36, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

I didn't see your notice on the talkpage. You should have put it on the image-page. When you get a positive signal from OTRS, drop me a note and I will undelete it. --Túrelio (talk) 15:09, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
Well, back when I started in Wikipedia in 2004, talk pages were used for talking about the content pages, so discussions would not be held on the content pages. If there's a new policy for ignoring those, is there also some new template for the "OTRS incoming, do not delete" message or should I just write it on the top in big red letters? It seems I really can't keep in touch with all the new developments here. --Ehitaja (talk) 10:47, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
If you want to be formally correct, put {{OTRS pending}} on the top of the image-page. However, even an informal remark like "permission from rightsholder sent to OTRS" would alert the processing admin. --Túrelio (talk) 10:55, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
Well, I got the confirmation mail from the photographer and forwarded it to the et-permissions address but I'm not sure when exactly they might get to it. I'll try to poke some folks to move it along. It might go easier, though, if there was a place they could attach their plaque. --Ehitaja (talk) 16:46, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
I've temp-restored the image and added the OTRS-template. Yes, processing permissions is often rather delayed, as our OTRS volunteers are overworked. --Túrelio (talk) 18:36, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

sorry, but I will be too busy in RL today. Contrary to what it seems, images on Flickr carrying the "public domain mark" are not necessarily really in the public domain. It's complicated and a mess; see Commons:Requests_for_comment/Flickr_and_PD_images#Status_of_PD_Mark_1.0. AFAIK, you need to verify whether the Flickr-user, who offers such images, is really the photographer, as only he/she can put an image into the PD. If you are sure about that, then you might use the PD-Author template. The safest way would be to contact the Flickr-user directly and ask him to either change the license on Flickr to CC-BY or alike or to confirm the PD-Author license to . --Túrelio (talk) 07:05, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi মোহাম্মাদ ইসমাইল,
thanks for your attentiveness. I think we can ignore the Flickr-hit as 1) it contains Facebook/Instagram code in its metadata (so was obviously copied from there), and 2) is a crop from our version. The name of the account-holder on Instagram is identical to the author-name for our image. Our version has full metadata, which is confirmative for the assumption that the original author released the image also on 500px, from where it was copied to Commons. The only thing a bit suspicious is that the metadata contain the statement "© 2014 Makia Minich, All Rights Reserved", despite being a released on 500px. --Túrelio (talk) 08:06, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi Ron,
this is about File:Ron Davis (Film maker).jpg, which had been uploaded more than 2 months ago by JoseMartin(Rubia) (talk · contribs), who claimed it as own work. However, a recent-uploader patroler found it published at and thereby suspicious of being a copyvio, the more as this user has uploaded more copyvios. Consequently, I've deleted the image 2 days after its tagging. User JoseMartin(Rubia)} had been notified about the problem, but didn't react. As you aren't the uploader, you weren't notified. Now, even, if you gave this image to the uploader (though you wrote of "wiki professionals"), it would not have been o.k. to claim it as own work by the uploader.
If you are indeed Don Davis, you need to make sure that you own enough copyright in this image from the photographer to release it under a free license, as required by our (COM:L) and Wikipedia's policy. If that is really the case, you need to jump to Commons:Email_templates#Email_message_template_for_release_of_rights_to_a_file, copy the text in the grey box, enter the Commons filename of the image, eventually add the name of the photographer (depending on what the contract says), sign and date it and mail it from your official/business email address to . --Túrelio (talk) 21:03, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
