Esso Road Map[edit]

Greetings, I've been enjoying some of your contributions at Wikipedia and on Wikimapia. However, the Esso Road Map is clearly still in copyright (it was published in 1967) and regardless of the fact that it can be found all over the web it is not acceptable here on Commons. -Arb.

Will Robson, 297 Perry Road, Nottingham, NG51GQ, UK.

Dear Sir, I am a contributor towards Wikipedia the on-line encyclopaedia and I would like to insert a 1966 Esso Road Map of Jamaica into the section Maps of Jamaica. To do this I would require your permission,even though the map is readily available on the web, because of the copyright placed on the map. I hope you can assist in this matter. Yours faithfully,

Will Robson I hope this will allow the map to be inserted in the relevant pages of Wikipedia.Will robson (talk) 19:33, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

In that case the correct thing to do is to forward your emails to the OTRS system. You can read about the procedure at Commons:OTRS. It is fairly straight forward but be sure to put {{OTRS Pending}} in the file information next time you upload the map so it isn't deleted again. Once it's legit then it (or extracts from it) will be a great addition to quite a few articles. -Arb. (talk) 22:26, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
