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)

Question about additional OTRS permission on already reviewed media

Please see discussion on File:2009 Presidential Inauguration - Symbolism.jpg. best, --Clusternote (talk) 00:49, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Clusternote,
The issue is that this picture is a derivative work of the board. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:21, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. --Clusternote (talk) 08:21, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

wrong place

Maria Callas.2

Kind of you to revert. I do not know so much the places in Commons, but thought to give a sign of a duplication. If not important, sorry to bother. --Burumbátor (talk) 07:20, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Burumbátor,
Just tag the file with {{duplicate}}. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:24, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. --Burumbátor (talk) 07:33, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

The images are cropped differently, and the old Maria_Callas.2.JPG was even less similar due to retouching by the original el.Wikipedia uploader. Commons may have several crops, especially for a popular photo. Different images—not mechanical derivatives—may not be deleted under false {{duplicate}} pretext (although may be deleted via regular deletion). Yann, why do you give an advice to people who can’t follow it in a reasonable manner? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:36, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour, license standard à la source. Christian Ferrer (talk) 21:13, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour Christian Ferrer,
Je ne peux pas changer la licence sur YT, peut-être à cause de la musique. :( Cordialement, Yann (talk) 09:04, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Blur images please

Hi: You kept Commons:Deletion requests/File:Ep.103.jpg, but the background images are neither blurred nor cropped. Ellin Beltz (talk) 04:07, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ellin Beltz,
I was expecting someone else to do it... Yann (talk) 08:51, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
That's nice, but you kept a photo with copyright violations. I personally don't keep anything which isn't right. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:55, 13 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi, I definitely remember that this photo was uploaded by the same editor and subsequently deleted as a copyvio. However, it has since disappeared from the subject's website, but I don't think that solves the copyright issue. I can't see the deleted files, so I don't know which was the previous one, but there aren't that many so perhaps you can have a look. Thanks! --Randykitty (talk) 13:33, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done OK, deleted, user warned. Thanks, Yann (talk) 13:41, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Voluntary Arts logo.jpg

Hi Yann. You converted this file's licensing to PD-text logo. The organziation is based in the UK which tends to have a pretty low COM:TOO#United Kingdom. Are you sure it would be below the TOO for the both the US and the UK? Just curious because I've seen quite a number of similar logos whose country of origin is the UK being deleted as too complex. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:21, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Marchjuly,
Thanks for your message. Could you please create a DR if you think it is not OK? Regards, Yann (talk) 03:59, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Madeira en Mirasol 20170911.jpg

Hello. You've deleted the "File:Madeira en Mirasol 20170911.jpg". I've created this file. I take the picture and I put it first in my blog 'ribadeando' (, before the liberation in wikipedia. You can probe contact with me thru the blog to make a comprobation. Please, make it and after restore the file. Thank you.--user talk:Agremon 06:56, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

@Agremon: Hi,
This image is very small, so please upload the original file to Commons, or send a permission via COM:OTRS. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:02, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Fait... Je crois que l'allegation pour la qualité de l'image cést seulement pour eviter la omprobation. Comme ne sera pas la derniére photo que j'emploierai de mon blog, s'il vous plaît, dans autre occasion faisez la comprobation, parce que la procure de fichiers das mon ordinateur peut être non facile. Merçi! --user talk:Agremon 12:10, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@Agremon: Hi, OK, fine, but you better write in English. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:15, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Anvers 17 déc. 1937 Lismonde et Jacques de Wouters d'Oplinter sur l'Albertville (photo Léon van Dievoet).jpg

Hi. Do you think it would be a good idea to have a dual-language template for the works of Léon van Dievoet to avoid future DRs like the subject one?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:50, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Without being able to read the OTRS ticket, I suppose that the uploader in this case is a descendant of Léon van Dievoet? If so, we could wrap {{Heirs-license}} around the CC licence. De728631 (talk) 23:32, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Jeff,
What do you mean by "dual-language template"? The ticket is for all works uploaded by this account. And yes, it is a permission from the author's heirs. Regards, Yann (talk) 03:13, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you both. If {{Léon van Dievoet}} looks good to you in French and English, would you mind telling the uploader how to use it in French?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 04:06, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Copyright violation on a picture


I'm really new to Wikipedia and I have no idea how all the messages and stuff work, so I hope I'm doing this right. I saw that you posted a notification of a copyright violation on my part a while back which concerned the logo of a convention and organization that I am a founding member of: Imagicon. I have no idea why the image/logo was flagged as being copyrighted, and I have a hard time understanding and discerning all the messages and rules that followed. But long story short: We own the logo, and I am the founder of the Imagicon Foundation, so I don't understand why this is an issue, or why I was reported multiple times. I think I only uploaded an article once, with one picture, and that's it. I do get that the article was against the guidelines, even though I think I tried my hardest to comply. I'm having a hard time following or even understanding the discussions that followed the flagging of my article; Wikipedia is not a very clear-cut site in that regard.

Anyway, don't know if you even remember doing this, but in any case I wanted to let you know that as far as I'm aware there was no copyright violation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ptarn (talk • contribs) 14:01, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

@Ptarn: Hi,
Everybody here is essentially anonymous, except a few people who use their real identity. So we have no way to know that you are the copyright owner of these logos. Our policy is that, if a work was previously published elsewhere, a formal written permission has to be sent by email to confirm the copyright status of the file. Please see COM:OTRS for the instructions how to do that. The files will be undeleted once the permission is validated. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please ask if you have any question. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:51, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

State Microbe

What permissions do I need to get for the "State Microbe Poll" that you deleted from my page yesterday in order to use it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Docwarhol (talk • contribs) 16:59, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

@Docwarhol: Hi,
Your file is a copyright violation and out of scope. First it is a derivative work of the website under a copyright by the Rutgers University. Second we don't usually accept website screenshots, unless the website itself is notable enough to have its own article, which is certainly not the case here. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:05, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello Yann, could you please see [1] and take action as soon as you can.--√Jæ√ 12:47, 20 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi. Did you just receive a Flow-Thank from me? I was testing, and I was mostly surprised when the link seems to have worked. Alsee (talk) 14:08, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Nevermind, no reply needed. I was able to confirm it myself. Alsee (talk) 14:18, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Advice requested

Hi, I came upon the following three files: File:Bruno Santori.jpg, File:Santori e Carletti.jpg, and File:Bruno Santori 2.jpg. They were uploaded originally on the itWP and moved here by a bot. However, something doesn't seem right to me. The first one, for example, indicates that the author is "Celeste", but permission was given by Info.Bruno. The metadata include a copyright holder (Luca Cicchello). The second has no metadata and lists Info.Bruno as its author, but assuming that this is the subject himself, this is clearly not a selfie, so the person who took the picture should be listed as author. The third has no metadata either, but Lorenzo Foschini is listed as the author although, again, Info.Bruno is the uploader and presumably the person releasing this under CC-BY. I'm not sure what to do with this. Perhaps it has already been checked when the bot uploaded it here and I'm just overly worried... Thanks for having a look. --Randykitty (talk) 15:57, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Randykitty,
You spotted them right. Please create deletion requests for these files, and inform the original uploader(s). Thanks, Yann (talk) 16:05, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Wrong lisense too

these files need to be deleted in a similar way; (Commons:Deletion requests/File:Turkish Army Captured Afrin 04.jpg)

All of these files have wrong license.

--Ahmet Turhan (talk) 07:41, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ahmet Turhan,
Could you please create a deletion request, and inform the uploader(s). Thanks, Yann (talk) 07:48, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Consideration of undeletion request

Hi Yann. I posted a request to undelete a file that I originally uploaded to Wikimedia Commons yesterday which was deleted due to alleged copyright violation. As you were the administrator of record in its deletion, I would appreciate your review and input on the request. Thank you. Georgian (talk) 11:29, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Logo Matière Grise


L'image "LogosSuccessifsMatièreGrise.jpg" a été supprimée pour violation de droits d'auteur mais c'est bien moi qui ai fait ce montage d'images, et les différents logos qui y apparaissent ont été fait par Matière Grise (où je suis stagiaire). J'ai envoyé un mail à wikipedia pour céder les droits sur cette image mais apparemment ça ne fonctionne pas. Que puis-je faire pour pouvoir importer cette image ? Et sauriez-vous me dire ce qui pose problème ?

Merci beaucoup d'avance, --Sarah.hn94 (talk) 11:39, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Bonjour Sarah.hn94,
Pour tout document publié ailleurs auparavant, une autorisation écrite formelle est nécessaire. Vous devez vérifier avec Matière Grise qui est le détenteur des droits d'auteur, qui doit envoyer une autorisation par mail. Voyez COM:OTRS/fr pour les instructions. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 11:56, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour @Sarah.hn94:
Vous avez téléversé le fichier fr:Fichier:Logos_Successifs_MG.jpg sur la Wikipédia francophone. Pourquoi ne pas l'utiliser ? Il ne me semble pas nécessaire de l'avoir aussi sur Wikimedia Commons.

May want to reconsider whether this warning has been effective, or whether additional steps should be taken. GMGtalk 14:09, 21 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi Yann, Can you restore all of my categories you've just deleted please,

These should've been marked with the {{empty category}} and as such should not have been deleted, Also the nominator failed to even notify me, The categories are still in use (I just leave gaps between uploading so I can upload in bulk as opposed to uploading one image a day or thereabouts), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 15:44, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done Allforrous tagged them for speedy deletion. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:05, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Yann, I know I've had a go at him lol, Thanks for kindly restoring them it's very much appreciated, If I ever see you IRL the beer's are on me :), Happy editing, –Davey2010Talk 18:07, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Davey2010, Sure! Initially, I was wondering why you asked me about cats ;oD. BTW, they make pretty good Chicken Tikka Masala around here (I am in India nowadays). Best regards, Yann (talk) 18:40, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Yann, Haha ahhhh right :D, I thought "Well I can't see any admin randomly deleting these it wouldn't make sense ?," and then figured someone went on a CSD-tagging spree! Face-grin.svg,
I'd love to try the Masala there I bet it's beautiful :), I occasionally cook my own but it's nothing compared to the Indian takeaways so one can only imagine the taste in India :), –Davey2010Talk 18:57, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Retrait de Treize Magazine sur la page de la Fédération Française de rugby à XIII


Vous avez retiré la photo de couverture de "Treize Magazine" , un magazine disparu mais une publication officielle de la fédération à XIII. Si j'obtenais l'autorisation de la FFR XIII de le publier accepteriez vous de laisser ce document sur la page ? --WIKITRIPAU (talk) 18:16, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Pas de souci si vous obtenez une autorisation. Mais sachez qu'il faut une autorisation pour une licence libre, pas seulement pour Wikipédia. Voyez COM:OTRS/fr pour les instructions. Ce n'est pas nécessaire de réimporter les fichiers, ils peuvent être restaurés quand l'autorisation est validée. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:34, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
