Thanks for uploading Image:Slim_Dusty_plaque_at_the_National_Truck_Drivers_Memorial,_Tarcutta.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-2.5}} to release it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

Michael, I understand you are the admin who deleted this photo of mine of a poster for deletion on 4 September. Unfortunately I was only notified by email of the deletion request notification on my commons talk page on Sept 13. I do most of my contribs on Wikipedia and seldom visit my commons talk page. I believe the deletion request was made in error without due regard to the listed reasons on the Commons Deletion Guidelines as set out in the Deletion Policy.

I would have contested this deletion on the grounds that a similar scan of the poster has been on public display and continual access via the internet at the Internet Public Library site of the Labadie Collection for several years at this site. The image was featured prominently and supported the Australian Anarchist Centenary Celebrations Wikipedia article. If there is some guideline forbidding photos of posters which have or continue to be publicly displayed, and support material in a wikipedia article, can you detail or direct me to it please.

Is there any reason you can provide why I should not appeal the deletion decision? Please reply on my Talk page. Thanks --Tirin (talk) 12:26, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

You can certainly appeal if you believe I deleted this in error. My reason for doing so is that the image is a photograph of a copyright poster of 1986. You licensed the photo under cc-by-sa-2.5, but in order to do that you would need to show that the original poster designer released his/her rights under that licence. In essence, as you did not design the poster yourself, you are not authorised to release copies of it. The fact that the image appears on a website does not mean that you can take that image, since the website owners are probably themselves not the copyright owners. Even if they are, the website specifically says "All rights reserved". Even if the poster is on public display, that still does not make the design free for copying under Australian law since Australian Freedom of panorama does not apply to 2D works of art such as this. If the designer was an anarchist, perhaps he/she may not have approved of copyright law but that does not prevent the copyright from existing, and in the absence of a clear copyright release from the artist this photo cannot I am afraid remain on Commons. Sorry. You might like to have a look at COM:CB#Posters. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 20:07, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Thankyou Michael for that information. I intend to chase up the poster designer for permission to publish the photo of the poster. Exactly what requirements are needed? Is an email release or verbal statement giving permission to publish under a particular licence, say a Creative Commons licence, sufficient?--Tirin (talk) 06:57, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
A release under licence would be great, as it looks a very useful image. What you would need to do is to get the designer to send an email to OTRS (ie to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org) specifically saying that the design is released under a particular licence, eg cc-by-sa-3.0. There are some email templates mentioned on the OTRS page that you can use if you like, but something a little more personal may be better. Please ask for the image to be mentioned by name (Image:Australian_Anarchist_Centenary_poster.jpg), so we can be sure which one is being referred to. The email needs to be archived in the OTRS system, so an oral release or an email to you wouldn't be enough. If you want to let me know when the email has been sent, I will check in the database and assuming all is OK can then undelete the image for you.

Sorry - essentially the same problem here: the is a copyvio of a work of art, namely the photograph. You would need a licence from the original photograher to upload this view of it. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 20:57, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

11 November 1975 images[edit]

Good morning. I have used two of your images at 1975 Australian constitutional crisis. At the FAC, an editor questioned the two images, and would like you to send an email to OTRS saying you did in fact take the images (I think this is due to the age of the images). You may also wish to comment at the FAC. Many thanks for contributing all these great images to WP.--Wehwalt (talk) 02:41, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I have left an answer at the FAC. I do not see the necessity for going through the OTRS procedure. The images were asserted as original works and correctly licenced at the time of upload. I have confirmed them as my original works.--Tirin (talk) 10:27, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Great job on the Map of Victoria Aboriginal Nations, but I suggest you use Nations instead of tribes as the name because these were, by definition, nations: "Nation, a large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular state or territory."Thoralor (talk) 08:44, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
