Wrongly Marked Photo for possible copyright infringement

This tourist map of Kannur (a district in Kerala) have been created by me as part of my academic module on cartography. I have created this map from scratch.

I intend to make similar maps for all the districts of Kerala. I also intend to make minor corrections and add more details in the uploaded map of Kannur.

Do consider the same and pull back the copyright infringement claim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arogon05 (talk • contribs) 16:29, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Copyright issues


I am a new Wikipedia editor. I have been working on the page on Mariette Lydis as part of the national Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. You have flagged my edits for copyright issues. I do not want to violate copyrights, but I am unfamiliar with the protocols, and I am attempting to populate Lydis's page with some of her work to better represent her career. Could you help me preserve these images, as long as that is ethically acceptable, so that we can keep at least some representation of her work?

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HCordray (talk • contribs)

@HCordray: Hi,
We need the permission from Mariette Lydis' heirs to publish her works of art on Wikimedia. You may ask @Malydis:, it seems to be someone from the family. Please see COM:OTRS for the instructions. Please ask if you need any help. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:16, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello again -- Malydis is not a descendant, and Mariette Lydis had no children. How else should I approach copyright release?

@HCordray: Then who did inherit Mariette Lydis' copyright? Regards, Yann (talk) 08:07, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

Consideration of undeletion request

Hi Yan,

My page [Hill Law] was deleted for the following reason: "Out of scope, Serves no purpose other than to self promote." I would like to share my pictures and have them attributed to me. I would be extremely grateful if you could provide me with some guidance on how my photos can be attributed to me without it being construed as "self promot[ing]."

L'illustration de la rhétorique sémitique dans la sourate 12

Bonjour, avez-vous reçu l'autorisation de Michel Cuypers par mail comme indiqué ? Bismillah (talk) 15:59, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour Bismillah,
Avez-vous le numéro du ticket ? Cordialement, Yann (talk) 07:58, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour, je ne sais pas ce que c'est que ce numéro de ticket. Pourriez-vous m'expliquer ? Bismillah (talk) 09:47, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Yellow531's images

Hello. Two files was not deleted yet. Would you please check this? Thanks. --Garam talk 07:17, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done It seems that some deletions failed because of my poor Internet connection. :/ Regards, Yann (talk) 17:47, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

By Commons:Deletion requests/File:Logo of the Momentum Movement.svg you close the deletion request with "Kept: PD-textlogo", but in the Hungarian copyright isn't something like that (if any, please show me).

In the example of Commons:Threshold of originality#Hungary "OK" (SZJSZT-17/2012) the question was that the logo used (the logo text and image was not under copyright, because the stylized display of the business name and next to it a stylized globe, which can be found in technical books and on the Internet; it was a partial globe with latitudes and longitudes, and with a slightly tilted representation) is or does not have copyright protection, but not that the work derived therefrom. There namely it says that: "...the acting council states that the original just typographical solution logo it sight which consisted solely of the company name, has changed with the globe supplement. The sketch of a globe and the compiling the two elements shows clearly graphic design skills." - the copyright issue was not extended for this work, so about the final creation it isn't a legal resolution and we do not even know how these logos looks at all (despite that of the subject of the decisionis there is a good description - see italics). Are you sure, that you made the right decision? The Hungarian OTRS have a legal resolution from Momentum, that there is an existence of copyright (ticket number: 2018021510007142).

BUT User:Oppashi is in progress for a cc-by because there is a trademark protection too. If he did not succeed what is expected from what is described? Can the image be deleted from Commons? We have a former permission for just for Wikipedia illustration (not the same but similar to fair use). (Sorry for my bad English language knowledge!) Fauvirt (talk) 11:06, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

I think there should a confusion about the copyrighted logo, as the one shown here doesn't include any globe, as you mention above. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:45, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
* stylized text with a common stylized globe icon SZJSZT 17/2012 (does not show the actual image)
X mark.svg Not OK
* Sulinet Expressz logo, see SZJSZT 1/2005
I summarized the SZJSZT 17/2012 Hungarian text (see the link above) in English.
In the Hungarian Law isn't something like the PD-textlogo. It says 1§ (3) The creation shall enjoy copyright protection based on its individual, original nature originating from the intellectual activity of the author. The protection shall not be subject to any quantitative, qualitative and aesthetic characteristics, or to value judgements relating to the standard of the creation. Fauvirt (talk) 23:05, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
I think this requires further discussion. Could you please open it on COM:VPC (you can copy from here)? Thanks, Yann (talk) 05:11, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
Okay. I thank you too. Fauvirt (talk) 07:43, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of the photo Pierre Hemmer.jpg who has the necessary rights

Photo of Shalimar Seiuli

You recently deleted the photo of Shalimar Seiuli the name of the file is Shalimar Seiuli.jpg. This photo was uploaded after obtaining permission from the photographer who took the photo, Linda Simpson. I emailed Wikipedia commons all required documentation yet the file was deleted from commons. Can you please let me know what else you need. The ticket number is as follows Ticket:2018033110005648. Fightforsocialjustice (talk) 20:37, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Fightforsocialjustice: Did you tag the file {{subst:OP}}?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 00:34, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi, I restored the file and added "OTRS received". We may need to have a proof of copyright ownership. Regards, Yann (talk) 02:11, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Concern about deletion, and talkpage protection

Hi Yann,

Following up from some comments by an anonymous editor on my talkpage, could you explain further your basis for deletion of File talk:Monnaie de Bactriane, Eucratide I, 2 faces.jpg? It appears to be a specific concern about material on the file description page. That is well within the Commons:Verifiability for altering the statement, and talkpages are specifically for discussion regarding improving page content. Also, the anonymous editor reports being unable to contact you directly because your talkpage is protected. Is the vandalism problem you were combatting last December still a likely threat? DMacks (talk) 07:40, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi DMacks,
The initial description comes from the National Library of France, who took the photograph, and is certainly more reliable than a blog. I can't find back the source, but the anonymous comment looks more like a trolling tentative to me than anything else. I am only available on sporadic times, and 99% of IP messages are just junk, so it doesn't seem worth the effort. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:46, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
It's reasonable to raise the concern (especially since it is merely a summary of an on-wiki consensus concern raised at English WP where the image is a featured-image!). And whatever evidence you have, or concerns about others' sources, would then surely be welcomed as a response there. I doubt the talkpage of the main en.wp website is trolling you. DMacks (talk) 06:26, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
FYI, I nominated this picture as FP, both here and on enwiki: en:Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Gold 20-stater of Eucratides, where no concern about the description was raised. And Commons is not the English WP, so the description of the POTD is not directly related to the description on Commons. I can't find the discussion this IP is talked about, but seeing the language used in your talk page, my evaluation remains the same. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:50, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
See [1]. Ping User:Howcheng. DMacks (talk) 07:11, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I changed the wording, using the one used on English WP. I think this is quite a neutral statement. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:23, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

do not report the issue is several places?

I noticed you reverted my edits( see: [2]) recently that said that "do not report the issue is several places". I don't understand why.--Kai3952 (talk) 05:51, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi, You mentioned yourself that you already reported the issue here: Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems#瑞丽江的河水. Regards, Yann (talk) 06:03, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, and license

The licenses look correct now: cc-by (2.0, perhaps b/c that's the last time he updated stated pref). Warm regards, --SJ+ 15:50, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Loulou1863 ... totalement largué !

Bonjour Yann, J'ai bien compris qu'il fallait que je produise l'autorisation écrite du propriétaire du tableau "Le cirque Nidelet" mais j'ai beau lire et relire tout ce qui m'est possible de trouver, je ne comprends pas comment procéder. Le jargon Wikipedia ou Wikicommons m'est totalement inconnu. Pouvez-vous m'aider ? Avec mes remerciements anticipés et cordiaux. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Loulou1863 (talk • contribs)

@Loulou1863: Bonjour,
Voyez COM:OTRS/fr pour les instructions à envoyer. Le fichier sera restauré quand l'autorisation sera validée. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:31, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

File:Cairns City QLD 4870, Australia - panoramio.jpg

I'm bemused by your decision to keep File:Cairns City QLD 4870, Australia - panoramio.jpg on the basis that it's "25.19 Megapixel". Yes, the image is large, but it's extremely underexposed and extremely noisy. That, in my book, makes it a very low quality image. It also appears to depict a private dinner, so it's status as educational is highly questionable - hence it is of little value. Are there any standards around here? Gareth (talk) 07:15, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Gareth,
We certainly have much worse quality around here. Not a high quality image, but it could still be useful. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:26, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Image supprimée : Leopold PLOWIECKI-portrait-2.jpg

Bonjour Yann, Le 20 mars, tu as supprimé une image que j'avais mise en ligne (sur Léopold PLOWIECKI / Leopold PLOWIECKI-portrait-2.jpg). Déjà, tu m'as indiqué que c'était mon dernier avertissement, alors que je n'avais même pas vu le premier avertissement. Bon, c'est certainement que j'ai manqué d'attention. Mais je ne comprends pas comment donner l'autorisation, car j'ai effectivement écrit un e-mail (en suivant le modèle de Wikimédia en anglais) à la fondation, il y a maintenant trois semaines, et je n'ai toujours pas reçu de réponse.

Dois-je relancer ? Dois-je tenter une réimportation ? Dois-je plutôt écrire à l'adresse e-mail de destinataire en français (, plutôt que l'anglaise ( ?

Je te serais vraiment reconnaissant si tu pouvais m'aider, car j'essaie de lire de l'information sur les images, les autorisations, les catégories... mais c'est un peu complexe à saisir.

Merci à toi, L'enfant Bio. — Preceding unsigned comment added by L'enfant bio (talk • contribs) 15:00, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

@L'enfant bio: Bonjour,
Si le mail est en français, il vaut mieux l'envoyer à l'adresse en français. En plus la liste d'attente est notablement plus courte en français. As-tu le numéro du ticket ? Cordialement, Yann (talk) 16:57, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
