Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Versace1608
Re: Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Versace1608 - based only on the fact that File:Iyanya_at_MTV_Base_Nigeria_Top_10_Show.jpg does not appear on the Internet and that this editor appears to be promoting this artist (among others) on the English Wikipedia, it's likely he either is the photographer of the Iyanya photo or knows the photographer and that he knows the artist. It's also likely that he knows the copyright owners of some or all of the images he has uploaded. For those images that don't meet non-copyright-related deletion criteria (e.g. out of scope, etc.), it's my hope that the uploader will use the discussion period to get the true copyright owner to release these under a free license.
On the other hand, if the copyright owners do not want others to create derivative works or re-use the work or derivative works commercially, he will not agree to a Commons-compatible license. I can just see someone who doesn't like Iyana's music taking one of the images from the Commons, slapping a symbol on it, and using the resulting image commercially. If the license for the Commons image included an attribution requirement that would be ironic. Davidwr (talk) 00:02, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
- I see what you mean; the uploader needs to participate in the DR. Thine Antique Pen (talk) 10:29, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
