Just to give one example, Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by FrDr this image was taken on a private nature reserved owned by Natuurpunt, a non-private conservation organization that owns private conversation land. Which I was pretty clear about in the DR. The same for at least the next couple of images in it. They were all taken on private conversation land owned by Natuurpunt. I'm really getting sick of you targeting and harassing me. Are you just that petty that your going to continue coming after me 2 years later because of one incident? Adamant1 (talk) 10:23, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Where did you see that the land is owned by Natuurpunt? This association manages the nature reserves, but I don't see evidence that it owns the land. That is usually not how it works. This kind of association works with public funds to manage publicly owned land. Please keep the discussion in one place. Yann (talk) 10:28, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I don't mind keeping the conversation about the DRs to the ANU complaint. I think that's tangential to you constantly going after me for no reason every time you get a chance though and I'd like it to be settled regardless of the ANU discussion. --Adamant1 (talk) 10:39, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Adamant1: Do not take this issue personally. I would answer the same to whoever create such DRs. Yann (talk) 12:07, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Yann, I noticed that Adamant1 has opened a whole series of similar DRs for tourist and nature reserve signs, always based on the same reasoning that there's no FOP for these kind of tourist signs (see : Category:Belgian FOP cases/pending) FrDr (talk) 16:01, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@FrDr: Yes, I closed some of them. Could you add the {{FoP-Belgium}} to all images (you can do that with VFC, tell me if you need help)? Could you also answer about who owns the land where these pictures were taken? Are these places open to the public without any restriction? Yann (talk) 17:35, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Yann: I don't know how VF works, help would be greatly appreciated. The outdoor signs of tourist attractions, monuments and nature reserves weren't taken on private land (which I wouldn't even have access to to take the pictures in the first place). kind regards FrDr (talk) 20:07, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The idea that someone can't take pictures on private land is totally ridiculous and I've said a couple of times now at least a few of the signs clearly stated the nature reserves were privately owned by Natuurpunt. You can claim they aren't, but they clearly are and your word isn't valid evidence. At least not compared to an actual sign saying the nature reserve is private. --Adamant1 (talk) 22:53, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Actually it probably doesn't matter who owns the land, as long as it is open to the public. Yann (talk) 09:11, 4 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I think I explained that in the ANU complaint. "private" is just shorthand for "permanently accessible to the public" because access being restricted to private property is kind of inherent to the thing and I don't feel like writing a mini-essay about what exactly the terms "private" and "public" mean every time this comes up just because people like you want to be pedantic about it. But I will point out that in Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Natuurpunt Smiley.toerist said museum's aren't sufficiently public enough because they have "controlled access" and then went on to describe private nature reserves in a way that clearly shows they control access to the public. So there isn't a legitimate argument that they are "permanently accessible to the public" enough to be public places for the purposes of FOP in Belgium. --Adamant1 (talk) 09:23, 4 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
FOP in Belgium applies to all places that are freely accessible for the public. Who owns a place is not relevant for the law. What is relevant is that anyone can freely enter without asking permissions, etc, which is the case. That a nature organisation places fences around an area is commonly to keep animals inside and to make sure humans only enter the area via the paths. As nature areas are sensitive to disturbance, access is commonly limited to pedestrians only. To enforce only pedestrians to enter, gates can be placed. (This is also the case at many public parks.) This however does not limit pedestrians from freely entering the area and nature areas are public places, falling under FOP.
The signs in question are commonly located at the edge of the nature areas and commonly can be photographed from the road. Also the areas of Natuurpunt fall under FOP as they are freely accessible and anyone who wants can freely enter the area without asking permission. Also signs inside the property can be freely photographed under FOP.
I also have to conclude that I see a pattern of abuse behaviour of the nominator. In earlier discussions it has been made clear to the nominator that the perspective regarding FOP the nominator describes is false, substantiated by experts, and even still continuing this behaviour of nominating images for deletion because of FOP, knowing that the images do fall under FOP.

How is it petty to ask someone to ask an administrator to not make comments towards me that I find insulting? Your the one always initiating things on your end by making the comments to begin with. I have absolutely nothing to do with you otherwise and I should be able to ask you to stop making them and leave me alone if I have an issue with how your treating me. Adamant1 (talk) 13:18, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Adamant1: You are looking for these comments. If you don't want that your claims are called "nonsense", do not make claims without any valid rationale. It is quite simple, isn't? Yann (talk) 13:20, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'm really not. I said in the ANU complaint that I didn't think Tulsi is doing paid editing on here, but that someone doing paid editing probably shouldn't have the VRT permission just to be on the safe side anyway. I don't really see what's "nonsense" about that. Regardless, I'm certainly not looking for those types of comments from you and there's an appropriate way to respond to someone you disagree with. Like how Aafi responded, which I think was perfectly fine. I find dealing with you rather distressing a lot of the time since you blocked me for essentially no reason those two times though and I should be able to make edits having to feel threatened or intimidated while doing it. It's certainly hard to deal with the insults.
Maybe it's a cultural thing, but I really do honestly find the term "nonsense" rather insulting. Again, there's an appropriate way to go about criticizing someone and I don't think calling what they say "nonsense" is a way to do it. Why not at least stop saying it as a good faith measure towards me and sign that your willing to get along if nothing else? Just say why you disagree with what I'm saying and move on. There's no reason to make every minor thing you disagree with or response that personal. To quote Commons:Harassment "It is as unacceptable to harass a user with a history of inept or disruptive behavior as it is to harass any other user."--Adamant1 (talk) 13:35, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Read again what I wrote there. I didn't say anything about your comment on Tulsi. I said that your claim that File:Sunny Leone snapped at Mehboob Studio.jpg is advertising for Bollywood Hungama is nonsense. Well, French translation (absurdité) doesn't seem to have the same definition as English. You also wrote the file should have just been deleted on site as blatant promo. Seriously I don't see how you can say that with a straight face. Yann (talk) 13:49, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Fair enough, but still even if you disagree it's advertising that's no reason to call my opinion that it is "nonsense." There are images on here from the same source without the watermarking containing their website URL after all, which also happens to be in the middle of the image BTW. I don't really see how anyone can say with a straight face that a URL to a commercial website in the middle of an image isn't advertising. It's clearly meant to call attention to their website. Regardless, as I said there's a civil way to go about this anyway. Just find a better term. Absurd is kind of getting there. But still, there's no reason you can't just say I'm wrong, point out specifically why, and then move on without the needlessly personal tone to begin with. Like "it's not advertising because of X" and leave it at that. I'd love to know why you think Bollywood Hungama putting an extremely obvious watermark containing their logo and website URL in the middle of an image isn't meant to serve as advertising. --Adamant1 (talk) 14:18, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Bollywood Hungama sells images of Bollywood people: actresses and actors (mostly), directors, etc. The watermark is mainly here to reduce the commercial value of the images when not paying for them, not so much to redirect searches to their website. People who want to buy these images know where to do that. Anyway, the attribution URL is useful to increase their Google ranking, while the watermark is not. Yann (talk) 14:40, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hhhmmm, I guess I wasn't aware that something was only advertising if it improves the companies ranking on Google lol. You got to admit that's not the standard for what makes something promotional on here and that they could direct people to where they buy the images in a less direct way. Like I said, its not like a lot of their other images have the watermark either. --Adamant1 (talk) 14:52, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Regarding my own Image Copyright for April Solar eclipse 2024

Hello, it has come to my attention that my own photos have been deemed "Vandalism" or is Missing information, I would like it to know that I am the owner of these photos. I do not understand the confusion behind the photos that include my own watermark "MHT Aviation Photography" as believing it is owned by someone else. I own the rights to those photos and have the original files on my PC. I also own and operate the website, where user Ace has cited to remove my own images.

Although my name "KMHT Spotter" Is my Wikipedia name, I am MHT Aviation. There shouldn't be any copyright issues regarding my own photos. I would ask the images to be reinstated. I own those photos and can back up my claims by using unedited and unaltered images of the eclipse. These are my photos which I wanted to share with my watermarks on them. I wish for this to be resolved quickly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KMHT Spotter (talk • contribs) 21:28, 10 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@KMHT Spotter: Hi,
Sure, and thanks for sharing your pictures. But anyone can register an account with any name, and we get many people claiming a copyright which they don't have. Also your other pictures do not have EXIF data, so we can't count on that to verify the ownership. And you claimed as yours a satellite picture. IMO it would be best if you confirm that you are the author via COM:VRT. And please upload the original pictures with EXIF data. Thanks, Yann (talk) 09:21, 11 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Plage Paul Thomas

Bonjour Yann, je crois que tu parles français ? Je ne comprends absolument pas l'accusation. J'ai pris cette photo il y a quelques jours sur la plage concernée donc je ne vois pas comment on peut prétendre qu'elle pourrait être une violation de droits d'auteurs. En recherchant sur Google, je vois qu'il y a des photos ressemblantes mais si tu observes les vagues tu remarqueras les différences. En tout cas je jure que c'est bien moi qui viens de prendre cette photo. Bien à toi. Enrevseluj (talk) 23:00, 14 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Bonjour Yann, désolé, je ne comprends pas beaucoup l'anglais. Je crois que la page a été conservée mais m'en suis rendu compte après mon message. Malgré tout, les accusations sont violentes lorsque l'on s'investit tel que je le fais. Je passe des heures à aller photographier les lieux de Guadeloupe, parfois à la rame comme c'est le cas ici, et se retrouver en accusation par la simple utilisation de Google Lens (pas au point la preuve), cela fait mal. Je comprends que les modérateurs font leur travail, mais je trouve que la bonne FOI n'est pas bien pris en compte. Bien à toi et merci d'avoir suivi cela.

Is there a reason you couldn't have left that DR up to someone else considering your involvement in the original discussion and attitude related to it? I still have yet to hear a valid reason why watermarking can't be promotional or advertising in certain instances, and it seems like your only response when we discussed it was to deflect and make things personal. I'd like an answer though. Otherwise I can either just renominate the image for deletion, ask about it on the village pump, or file an ANU complaint for you closing DRs related to things that your clearly invested in and biased about. Take your pick. Adamant1 (talk) 14:52, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Never mind. I just asked about it on the village pump since I doubt you'd have an actual answer anyway. I'll save the ANU complaint for another time, but I will say that it might be worth thinking twice about not closing DRs that your so involved in next time. Especially if there ones that I opened. I'm willing to take your word that there's no axe grinding involved in those types of decisions, but it would be cool if you at least did your part and left me alone as much as possible. Otherwise I'm just going to naturally assume there's more to it. Thanks. --Adamant1 (talk) 15:35, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Yann. Could you take a look at File:میراکبرخیبر، اناهیتاراتبزاد، کيشتمند، سلیمان لایق.jpg? The claim of "own work" seems questionable, and I think this might be a re-upload of File:د افغانستان دوه گوندیز کمونیزم (پرچم،خلق).jpg that you tagged as a copvio in September 2014 and which was subsequently deleted as such by Beria (who hasn't edited on Commons since April 2020) later that same day.

So this painting in the public domain in Serbia, but its copyright status in USA is not so clear. When was it painted? Yann (talk) 16:45, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I am not sure but before 1941 since author died on 10 July 1941...I can check...Fusek painted it probaly before battle of Mišar of Afansij Šeloumov since battle of Mišar was painted in 1938 and Fusek died 4 years latter on July 10th of 1941... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pink Flojd (talk • contribs) 17:34, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The problem is that this was not public domain in Serbia in 1996 per en:Wikipedia:Non-US copyrights. If it was painted in 1938, it can be uploaded here in 2034 as we tend to assume publication around creation for artwork. If you don't think you can wait for 10 years, you can upload it and have one of us speedy delete it for you and we'd put the file in the Undelete in 2034 page.

"Test edit"

Hi there! I wasn't trying to "test" anything; I simply wanted to bring attention to the issue which has been unresolved for 4 years now. Do you know of a better way to do so? Thanks for your help Firestar464 (talk) 00:20, 21 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

post photos

Bonjour, j'ai posté des photos (ces 15 derniers jours) dont une partie provient d'un site explicitement nommé avec l'accord écrit de son propriétaire. Evidemment je ne vois pas comment mettre son accord sur Commons, j'ai donc mis son accord en texte simple. Comme plusieurs ont été supprimés j'ai demandé directement au propriétaire de ces photos de les mettre avec les droits, ce qu'il a fait (mais faire faire ce job par un autre n'a pas trop de sens). Poster des photos persos semble aussi compliqué (tag?). Je pense que mes futures contributions vont rester en texte uniquement. salutations Arnaud Arnaud.neuch (talk) 06:46, 22 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Arnaud.neuch: Bonjour,
Il faut que le détenteur des droits d'auteur confirme l'autorisation de publication des photos sous une licence libre par email. Voyez COM:VRT/fr pour la procédure. Les photos pourront être restaurées si et quand l'aurotisation est validée. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 09:52, 22 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
