Commons:Deletion requests/File:Emily Dickinson (perhaps) 1859.jpg

I don't understand your close of Commons:Deletion requests/File:Emily Dickinson (perhaps) 1859.jpg. First of all, you say it "can be cropped if needed", but a crop already exists -- as I pointed out in the nomination. If the crop didn't already exist, I would have tried to crop it myself, obviating the need for a DR in the first place. Second of all, I've never heard of a picture frame being considered de minimis. That seems a novel interpretation; is there any precedent for keeping similar photos of photo frames? Powers (talk) 02:49, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Well, I would be very surprised if anyone claim of copyright on a frame. Yann (talk) 02:58, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Deleted as obvious case of 3D frame in a 2D reproduction of a PD image ({{PD-Art}} wasn't used but should have been; I've added it to the cropped version). Rd232 (talk) 09:59, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
NB to clarify: the issue isn't the copyright in the frame (which is probably about as old as the old photo anyway), it's the copyright in the new photo (of frame+old-photo). The new photo isn't freely licensed, but is considered not to generate a new copyright as long as it's a photo only of the old photo. See Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.

The image does not have the sign of Raja Ravi Varma, which was his characteristic. This real Raja Varma work [1] on this later lithograph seems to be based, is signed. The source is not reliable to be trusted. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 16:15, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
Can you (as an admin) club all DRs for Ravi Varma Press at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Siva-parvati-by-raja-ravi-varma.jpg?--Redtigerxyz (talk) 15:24, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Not really, because I uploaded these images. And it is usually the person who create the DR(s) who should do that. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:04, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Desai date found. No. I mean now that they are created, I can't club them. Right? --Redtigerxyz (talk) 17:13, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes, you can. Once you moved them all together, you can close the redondant DRs. Yann (talk) 17:17, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I have updated Commons_talk:WikiProject_India#Ravi_Varma_press and requested INeverCry to keep the DR where I have no objection. As an admin, can you please undelete and check the images from the list if Anant Shivaji Desai is written in them.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 16:29, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

INeverCry has undeleted and I have checked for the name. Following INeverCry redeleted images where Desai's name was not present as per my comments on Commons_talk:WikiProject_India#Ravi_Varma_press. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 05:11, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

File:Antoni Gutierrez Diaz.png

Hi Yann, you are right that File:Antoni Gutierrez Diaz.png it's not 2Mpx (it's 1,4Mpx) but consider that it's not a photograph. I think it is a good illustration of a person whom we don't have free photos. --Dvdgmz (talk) 11:22, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

The 2 Mpx rule is not just for photographs, but for any file. Get a bigger file, and try again. Yann (talk) 11:28, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
Yann, hi again, as you suggested I asked to the author and she uploaded a bigger file (2.3 Mpx) for the same image, as you can see: File:Antoni Gutierrez Diaz.png. I want to nominate the portrait again, but I don't know how because the file name it's the same. Can you help me? Thanks. --Dvdgmz (talk) 13:13, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

GFDL

Hi Yann. You've been campaining on this issue far longer than my recent efforts. Are you happy with the wording on the Village Pump in my proposed text beginning "The GFDL is no longer considered ..."? I want to make sure it will deal with the problems as you see them and is clear enough that a reasonable discussion can follow. Colin (talk) 12:24, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Swiss law?

Hi Yann, you kept Commons:Deletion requests/File:Museum Rietberg - Adivasi art of Hazaribagh 2012-09-01 19-20-04 (P7000).JPG with the comment "Picture taken in Switerland, therefore Switerland law applies". I wonder which Swiss law you refer to, exactly? In my last two comments on this DR, I tried to explain: This is a work by living artists, therefore basically copyrighted. In Switzerland, too - because Switzerland recognizes copyright, of course. Switzerland has Freedom of panorama, but only for public outside spaces, the law commentaries (e.g. Barrelet/Egloff) are quite clear on this. FOP in Switzerland doesn't apply to inside spaces such as museums. Therefore I would like to respectfully ask you to reconsider your decision. Gestumblindi (talk) 20:26, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

P.S.: Although Commons:FOP#Switzerland says "Whether Swiss freedom of panorama also applies to works in publicly accessible interior spaces is a matter of controversy among legal scholars as well", the controversy does only seem to be about rooms used for transit purposes. Most commentaries agree that "the inside of a building, the staircase, its rooms" aren't "allgemein zugänglich" (publicly accessible) in the sense of the law. And even if there were a degree of uncertainty, COM:PRP says we should delete. Gestumblindi (talk) 20:30, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
I suggest you renominate for deletion (that is the next step when the closing admin won't change their mind), giving this explanation. Rd232 (talk) 09:23, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
My opinion is that we should use the most favorable case allowing us to host a file. COM:PRP is much too restrictive. It does not bring benefit when there is an important uncertainty. On the contrary, it brings a false sense of security. Yann (talk) 06:01, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
On the contrary, it brings a false sense of security. - that doesn't make any sense whatsoever. PRP isn't a declaration "this isn't allowed", it's "we don't know if this is allowed, and we can't go around acting as if we know that it is". Rd232 (talk) 09:23, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Paranoia is not a solution to copyright issues. Copyright is not an exact science, or a black and white solution. You need to have a realistic approach. Yann (talk) 14:15, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Not for the first time, I can only shake my head at you. An admin who here appears to reject core Commons policy... WTF? Would you like to rethink what you're saying here? NB the standard of evidence to invoke COM:PRP is "significant doubt about the freedom of a particular file" - I recently italicised "significant" in the policy for emphasis. Nobody should be (and I think nobody is) interpreting COM:PRP to mean that absolute proof is required - this virtually never exists. Rd232 (talk) 14:29, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Your interpretation is not what I think. I don't reject any core Commons policy. I reject imposing impossible proofs when there is no significant doubt. That's all the difference. So the issue is in your interpretation of what is significant. In this case, it is in the public domain in most probabilities. We should find a reason to keep, not a reason to delete them. Think positive, stop thinking in terms of fear of an improbable copyright violation. Yann (talk) 15:01, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Fine, so the issue is what is "significant doubt". How do you avoid having significant doubt in this case? You would have to be willing to say that it was nearly certain that the image subject was on permanent display outside. I can't see any basis for that sort of claim. Rd232 (talk) 15:07, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Rd232. Yann, I must ask again: On what base, exactly, are you arguing that this "is in the public domain in most probabilities"? Please don't just say "Swiss law", but what in Swiss law makes you think that this is PD? Again: This is a work by living artists, their names are even known. Are you saying that it's not really art or something like that? Are you invoking FOP? But in the latter case, the work would have to be on display outside, which seems unlikely. I respect your wish to have as much free content on Commons as possible, but we do ourselves and our users ultimately a disservice if we let this wish become stronger than safeness in copyright matters. In this way, we're not furthering the cause of free content, but hindering it, that's the reason for PRP. So, I also would like to ask again to reconsider in this specific case, before I renominate, because I would much prefer to be able to convince you ;-) Gestumblindi (talk) 20:26, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I think that this falls under any other work of artistic craftsmanship in Indian copyright law, and it is therefore allowed like architecture and sculpture. The Swiss law does not mention any restriction to FOP, so why should we decide that it does not include this case? Yann (talk) 07:35, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

To further explain my position regarding COM:PRP, I think that this should apply mainly to recent images obviously or probably not taken by the uploader, but copied from the Internet or elsewhere. In these cases, I agree that we should delete even if we don't have a proof that the image is a copyright violation.

For old images, or images taken by the uploader, we should not be so strict, and only delete if there is a quasi-certainity that there is a copyright issue. In the case of this tapestry, there is no certainity to me. Yann (talk) 07:45, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Two problems: (i) there's no basis for applying Indian copyright law to a photo taken in Switzerland. (ii) there's no basis for turning COM:PRP upside down for "old images, or images taken by the uploader". None whatsoever. It's frankly shocking for an admin to come out and say that. Commons bills itself on the front page as "a database of X freely usable media files". That's what it says on the tin, and that's the claim COM:PRP is intended to defend. Do you want to change it to "a database of X media files which we don't know for sure are not free"?? Rd232 (talk) 09:33, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Your emotional stance is out of place. To me, it is shocking that admins cannot make rationale thinking regarding copyright and admit that there is no real basis for deletion beyond very unlikely speculation, or delete files with spurious reasons. Yann (talk) 15:27, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Well, let's finish the discussion here - I have re-nominated the image for deletion, as I still think that your decision was wrong. Gestumblindi (talk) 20:13, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
If there's anything spurious or speculative here, it's from you. The only saving grace is that despite these comments of yours (which would certainly be enough to torpedo an RFA...), decisions like the one that prompted this discussion seem rare, based on looking at your contributions (there are too many to be very thorough though). Rd232 (talk) 22:19, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
My feeling is that you are looking for cases to start a witch hunt on me. You need to learn and accept that others may have a different opinion than you. Yann (talk) 03:45, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
No-one is exempt from having their actions examined, and especially not admins closing DRs. Yes, I'm going to continue to keep an eye on your decisions, because of the comments you've made here and elsewhere. No, that's not any kind of persecution. Differences of opinion are possible even on copyright, absolutely - but there is a reasonable range of interpretation in any given situation and when people fall outside that range they should expect to be challenged. Rd232 (talk) 19:11, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Sociedad Heraldica

Salut, j'ai vu que tu avais restauré ces fichiers suite à une demande de user:Darwinius. J'en avais demandé la suppression non pas parce qu'ils étaient du "spam" pour reprendre les termes de la demande de restauration, mais parce que leur uploadeur, user:Sociedad Heraldica,a été banni pour avoir utilisé commons a des fins commerciales. Chaque fichier est en effet assorti d'un lien vers le site de cette "Sociedad Heraldica" ([2]), qui n'est rien d'autre qu'un site commercial. Moyennant finance, ces gens vendent des "certifications", dont les fichiers uploadés sur commons sont présentés comme des exemples. Pour couronner le tout, les "certifications" sont présentées comme "médiévales" (cf le nom des fichiers, la typographie gothique, le décor pseudo-héraldique et l'aspect vieilli des images qui sent très fort filtre le photoshop), alors que le texte qui figure dans les images les date explicitement des années 2010. Usage commercial, caractère volontairement trompeur, ces fichiers n'ont rien à faire sur commons. Par ailleurs, ce genre d'activité, en France, serait facilement qualifié d'escroquerie. Kathisma (talk) 00:18, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Bonjour,
Je comprends ton point de vue. Si nous autorisons une utilisation commerciale des fichiers, il me semblent logique qu'en retour, nous acceptions ce type de fichiers, à condition qu'ils offrent une utilisation éducative potentielle. Si tu avais développé tes arguments dans la demande de suppression ou dans la demande de restauration, le résultat aurait sans doute été différent. Je te suggère de rouvrir la demande de suppression avec des arguments détaillés comme ci-dessus. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 03:32, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

File:Teatr_Polski_w_Szczecinie.JPG

I am puzzled by the deletion of File:Teatr_Polski_w_Szczecinie.JPG. We hosted it for 4 years and it was used in few articles. The file opens fine in Firefox and all Windows viewers I tried, but MediaWiki software had issues with rendering of scale down versions in some resolutions. I asked about it at Commons:Graphics_village_pump#File:Teatr_Polski_w_Szczecinie.JPG, hoping to learn what issues would cause it. However I did not expected the cure for that illness to be deletion. Your explanation sounded rather generic "File is corrupt, empty, or in an disallowed format". Were there some other issues with it? --Jarekt (talk) 12:00, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

The file is broken for me, and there is no license. You added a warning for that yourself, so I don't understand your surprise. Yann (talk) 12:17, 19 October 2012 (UTC) Yann (talk) 12:17, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I remember the issues with rendering, but I forgot the issues with the license. I was confused by the explanation I guess since it mostly renders fine for me. But I agree about deletion due to no license. I will delete it. --Jarekt (talk) 13:31, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Photos de Jan Satyagraha

Salut Yann. J'aime vraiment bien tes photos de Jan Satyagraha proposées en QI, mais ta balance des blancs me semble un peu froide et ça manque un peu de contraste, du coup ça « tue » un peu les couleurs. J'aimerais te proposer des variantes retouchées, notamment pour File:Jan Satyagraha 2012 meeting at Agra 01.jpg. Est-ce que je les importe séparément, ou est-ce que je les importe par-dessus tes photos ? Jastrow (Λέγετε) 18:05, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Oui, toutes les photos ont une balance des blancs tirant vers le bleu à cause du toit en tissu blanc au dessus de la foule. Importe par dessus, et merci pour tes corrections. Yann (talk) 18:10, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Ne dis pas merci avant d'avoir vu Clin Voici le genre de correction que j'aimerais bien faire : File:Jan Satyagraha 2012 meeting at Agra 01.jpg. Dis-moi si c'est trop violent pour toi. Au passage, j'ai sans le vouloir alourdi ta photo pour rien. Quel taux de compression utilises-tu d'ordinaire dans GIMP ? Jastrow (Λέγετε) 20:43, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
J'utilise 98%. C'est plus coloré, et j'aime bien les couleurs. Je n'ai pas d'avis vraiment tranché sur le taux de saturation acceptable. J'ai toujours peur de faire trop de corrections. Yann (talk) 10:04, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
J'ai essentiellement ajusté la balance des blancs et fait un réglage portrait pour avoir des couleurs chair plus réalistes. J'ai peu saturé, mais en fait je crois qu'il vaut mieux s'abstenir tout court pour éviter que ça vire au carnaval. Évidemment le problème c'est que je ne peux plus promouvoir ta photo...

File:Juan Griego Beach, Margarita Island, Venezuela, edit.jpg

Yann Greetings, I send you a hug from Venezuela, I think it's great your restoration work, I can see that you've improved the picture much better than me, I try to do something, however, I'm not so good utlizando photo retouching tools. You can always override my photo that you think is best, I trust your judgment. And please, be picky when criticize my photos, in the same way as you have been doing. Feel free to suggest things, or even propose better ways to go somewhere you like Venezuela, I'll go gladly to photograph. Venezuela is a poor country, and also very dangerous, it's easy to get murdered for carrying a camera, is an additional value that is not seen in the photos. A hug, take care brother. Om Sri Sai Ram!. --The Photographer (talk) 20:08, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Section blank?

Do what? I am unclear as to what is the difference unless what I actually blanked that section of the page. If I did it was unintended. In fact not sure how I would have even done that since I was only section editing. Saffron Blaze (talk) 17:55, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Warum wurde das Bild gelöscht? [3] Bzw warum liegt da eine Copyrightverletzung vor? Ich wüßte nicht warum ich gegen das Copyright eines Bildes, dass ich selbst gemacht, habe verstoßen sollte? --Lokomotive74 (talk) 13:38, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't speak German. This file had no license, no permission, and the uploader is certainly not the copyright owner. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:43, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

A bunch of files deleted without asking

Hello,

I wonder why Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Leonfd1992 where all deleted like this. No warning was sent to the user who uploaded them, and even out a copyright violation mark [for all files] without explanation. Hey, I know this guy and he lives in a rural area, taking the photos from his phone. The photos are low-res, yes, but they can be replaced with a better-quality photo, but should be kept in the meantime. That was indeed rude, especially when he is trying to document the geography and traditions of his people, the wayuu. Not nice, not nice... --Maor X (talk) 18:47, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

All these files are copyright violation grabbed from the Internet. The uploader was given proper warning, see User talk:Leonfd1992. In addition, the warning is merely an information graciously given to the uploader, but any copyright violation can be deleted immediately without warning. Please read the guidelines regarding copyright: Commons:Licensing. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:54, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
No, most are not copyright violations and even though I am aware that the user didn't know all the rules but the warnings were for 7 files, yet you deleted all 45. Quite a few of the ones you deleted without asking were family photos. And I know the copyright guidelines, I'm not new to the movement. --Maor X (talk) 19:08, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Well, it seems you does not what is a copyright violation. So there is no point to discuss. Yann (talk) 03:44, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Is this File:Majayuut sunain Ayonnaja.jpg a copyright violation? Did you check? --Maor X (talk) 04:07, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Is this a derived copyvio (logo and images) from here?, I think so --The Photographer (talk) 04:16, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it is. I nominated it for deletion. Yann (talk) 04:31, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Yann, we have jumped the gun in this instance. If you now go back to the DR in question, you will see that I have corresponded with the uploader of the images, and that they have stated 7 images were not their own works, for which they have apologised, but they have assured us that the rest of the photos are their own -- and there is no reason to doubt this -- the images do not exist thru tineye and google image searches -- and not everyone is able to afford expensive camera equipment. As noted by Maor X above, these are clearly personal photos, and are obviously taken with a phone. The editor in question is active on Wayuunaiki incubator project, and I am afraid that we are scaring such editors off by biting them in such a way. Instead of approaching the editor, and waiting for a response, we have nuked all of their uploads, given them stern warnings for copyright violations, and are assuming bad faiths. We need to extend good faith to editors on smaller language projects, and nurture them, and I would hate to see this editor abandon the project because we haven't acted as we should. russavia (talk) 02:21, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Your question on my talk page

Sorry for getting back so late to you, but could you explain what you meant again? --Dschwen (talk) 18:21, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Viwashanti pravarthak.jpg

"Ravi Varma Press" paintings published by Anant Shivaji Desai are pre-1945. Anant Shivaji Desai Press is another printing Press opened by Anant Shivaji Desai, possibly after he cut his association with Ravi Varma Press in 1945. "Anant Shivaji Desai Press" printed in at least in 1948, no closure date found so PD-India can not be assumed.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 16:27, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

sources? en:Anant Shivaji Desai was born 1853, which makes it unlikely he was still alive in 1945, never mind founding a new press. More of a problem is determining whether the URAA bites here... Yann, your closure said "as per previous discussion" but it's not obvious where that is. (Presumably Commons_talk:WikiProject_India#Ravi_Varma_press.) Rd232 (talk) 16:57, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Anant Shivaji Desai was blessed with longevity. :) See Commons:Deletion requests/File:Siva-parvati-by-raja-ravi-varma.jpg for 1945 and 1948 references. Even if Desai died in 1945, his press "Anant Shivaji Desai Press" (whenever it was opened) continued to print lithographs. Since we do not know the closure of this Press, we can not assume that the lithographs are printed pre-1947. pre-1947(independence) are certainly PD as per 1911 Copyright Act of the British Empire. pre-1957 may/may not be copyrighted as act was adopted in 1957 and copyright could be renewed for copyrighted works pre-1957 as per the notification. If not renewed, they were PD-India. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 17:53, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Hm. Commons:CRTFULL#India doesn't cover the role of the 1911 Act - maybe you could add it. Rd232 (talk) 18:01, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Yann, since the discussion based on which the DR was closed did not discuss "Anant Shivaji Desai Press", shouldn't the image be deleted as per the precautionary principle? --Redtigerxyz (talk) 04:32, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Lizensen für Hanna Scholz und Marcel Glauche

Hallo Yann! Wie ich bereits Túrelio mitteilte ist eine Freigabemail an http://more-than-actors.de - Frau Neidig - rausgeschickt per WP-Vorlage! Unabhängig Davon habe ich die Einverständniserklärungsmails gestern 19.10.2012 per Kopie an Commons Hr. Neumann geschickt, da mir die Antwort der Agentur zu lange dauerte! Falls wir warten können ist das ok und wenn nicht müssen die eben wieder raus, ich kann nicht nach Berlin fahren und die Dame an die Hand nehmen. Erstmal vielen Dank und viele Grüße aus Neumünster!----Martin der Ältere!Sig.-Logo.JPG 11:09, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Nudist couple walking at the beach.jpg

Yann, can you explain your closure of Commons:Deletion requests/File:Nudist couple walking at the beach.jpg. The image is derivative of File:At the nude beach.jpg which is a copyright violation. Both should be deleted. Your closing statement "as above" does not explain your rationale for closing this as a keep. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 17:04, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

It seems you didn't read Simonxag's message. Commons version seems to be the original. Yann (talk) 18:23, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
I read Simonxag's message. Simonxag is wrong. Did you follow both of the links I provided? Please take another look and draw your own conclusion. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 19:34, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but none of your links match your claim. On the contrary, one is a crop of our image as said by Simonxag. And there are many images in the gallery you linked. A direct link to the image might be useful. Yann (talk) 08:12, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
A direct link to the image would prove nothing, since it could be a copy of the one here, but here you are. The important thing here is the date of posting, which predates the upload to Commons. This is why I included the cropped version. Here's the problem I'm having - I have identified a copyright violation and gone so far as to provide two links to support my claim. I have repeatedly made the point here that any user whose first and only uploads are public nudity or explicit sexuality should be setting of alarm bells, but even when I hand you the evidence on a plate, the response seems to be that you can't be bothered to verify my claim. As a result, you have kept a copyright violation. This is completely backwards. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 12:57, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
I don't see why public nudity or explicit sexuality should be setting of alarm bells, except to prude people. Then the date is posting is of little help, if the image you linked to is a derivative to our image. YOU need to make your claims straight before doing anything else. Yann (talk) 18:09, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Yann, I think you have misunderstood me. Prudishness has absolutely nothing to do with copyright violation. This image is a copyright violation. It is not derivative of the one here. Please read my message again. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 19:06, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
I can't disentangle your links to see where the image is supposed to come from. But much more simply, just from looking at the photo and file description: on what planet is this not a blatant violation of Commons:Photographs of identifiable people? We don't even know which country the photo was taken in, never mind whether these people consented to publication. I'm inclined to renominate on those grounds, unless someone can point out I'm missing something. Rd232 (talk) 09:50, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Well OK, that's another issue. I am quite neutral about this: although this place seems quite open to the public, more information about consent would be much better for Commons. Yann (talk) 10:01, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Rd232, I invite you to nominate a different image in a similar category as a test case. For instance File:Nudist picnic 3.jpg (which is almost certainly a copyvio). You may not like the result. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 13:02, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Let's stick with the initial one and see what people say. But these same issues do apply to many more photos I'm sure. I think US doesn't require consent as long as the image is in a public place - but even here we may want to check that a nudist beach qualifies. I've seen some discussions about FOP in Germany that suggest the definition can be trickier than you'd think, and the same may be true for the US. Rd232 (talk) 23:39, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Photo Palais des Nations

Bonjour Yann,

J'aurais voulu connaitre le status de la photo du palais des nations sur la page wikipedia "palais des nations". Nous sommes à la recherche d'une belle photo haute résolution de l'édifice et le site de l'onu n'en a pas; c'est pour un livre à l'Université de Londres. Pourrait-t-on avoir votre permission?

J'ignore encore comment 'talker' en privé donc je ne vous transmets pas mon e-mail institutionnel mais si vous savez comment svp n'hésitez pas.

GARGANTUA (Mirapolis)

Bonjour Yann, Je n'ai pas compris le problème : "No FOP in France". J'ai en effet envoyé deux photos en noir et blanc à wikimedia. je pensais les inclure dans l'article "René-Louis Baron" qui a créé, pour l'ouverture de ce parc de loisirs, le spectacle du Grand-Théâtre de Mirapolis "Partir à point" (livret et musique). Il s'agissait d'une comédie pour enfants mettant en scène certaines marionnettes géantes d'Yves Brunier, créateur entre autres du personnage Casimir dans une émission télévisée française L'île aux enfant. Je pense avoir abandonné ce projet d'insertion d'information dans cet article, n'ayant trouvé aucune source fiable pour le moment. Je suis à votre disposition pour répondre à d'éventuelles questions. J'ai vu sur wikimedia d'autres photos du Gargantua de Mirapolis bien plus belles que les miennes. Il n'est donc pas grave de supprimer les deux miennes. Cordialement. --JCAILLAT (talk) 17:05, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

La loi sur le droit d'auteur française, utilisée sur Commons pour les photos d'œuvres prises en France, ne permet pas de publier ces photos à moins que l'auteur de l'œuvre soit mort depuis plus de 70 ans. Voir COM:L et COM:FOP pour les détails. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 17:10, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Eureka j'ai compris ! Je m'étais trompée lors de la saisie du upload car il s'agit bien de MES photos. Etant prévues pour l'article René-Louis Baron, j'ai mis son nom en tant qu'auteur des photos à la place du mien (...). De toute façon cela n'a plus d'importance puisque vous supprimez ces photos. Merci pour votre intervention. Cordialement.--78.229.120.95 17:28, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Palaeomaps and OTRS

I have been trying to work with OTRS to maintain the files you just deleted, such as File:Paleogene-EoceneGlobal.jpg, since I have just secured a release for the images two days ago. No one notified me of the deletion requests, so they had already been closed and I was unable to comment. The release has been submitted to OTRS, and unfortunately this deletion affects a FAC on enWiki. – Maky « talk » 22:17, 17 November 2012 (UTC) There is also a discussion of these maps on Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard. – Maky « talk » 23:01, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, the previous OTRS ticket was not valid. Tell me when you get a proper ticket and I will restore these files. Yann (talk) 08:10, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
How does that get coordinated? Usually the images area already uploaded and tagged with a template saying that the OTRS is pending. As of this moment, the email with the release that I sent to OTRS points to files that no longer exist. Instead can all of these images be restored and have a OTRS pending template put on them? – Maky « talk » 13:44, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Petr Velikiy

Hi, Yann. The wrong name was Pyotr Velikiy. Correctly on authority RS rule is PETR Richtige Schreibweise des Schiffsnamens Petr Velikiy, if You have any document with Pyotr I'll be like to see, thanks--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 14:55, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

PjotrMahh1 has been given the answer here. --Majoritems (talk) 06:33, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Hi Majoritems, thank You for Your fast response, but we are talking here not about the V or W, I'm talking about the Russian letter Е. In English is this the letter E, not YO Petr, not Pyotr. Wir sprechen hier nicht über Velikiy oder dt. Weliki, sondern über PETR oder PYOTR, damit Du mehr erfährst, sieh mal da:

Commons Delinker, non-SVG to SVG

Hi, I noticed you had added a command for Commons Delinker to replace a JPG image with an SVG version. Just thought I'd let you know, the bot does not accept commands like these as mentioned on the commands page: To avoid World War III, CommonsDelinker will ignore a command to rename an image if the new image is svg and the original is not. It's probably because some wiki projects don't want SVG images or something like that. --Pitke (talk) 10:14, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Oops, I forgot that. Of course, I don't want to start World War III. ;o) Yann (talk) 10:17, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Suppress

Salut Yann,

Tu m'a informé récemment que les 5 images suivantes faites en 2007 étaient en demande de suppression :

Aussi, je voudrais savoir pourquoi dans l'article de wikipedia [[[:fr:Confluence_(Lyon)|Confluence]], la plupart des images ont une tolérance de présence avec même un bandeau toléré. Y aurait t-il deux poids et deux mesures sur wikipedia ?

Milky (talk) 15:37, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Les images de l'article Confluence se trouvent sur Wikipedia, et non sur Commons. Tu peux copier les images ci-dessus sur Wikipedia. Au sujet de tes remarques sur les poids et les mesures, lire plutôt mon message récent sur le Bistro‎. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 18:26, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

On risque un petit problème avec ces livres

En créant la page Creator:Adrien_Clergeac, j'ai réalisé qu'on risquait un problème de droits sur les deux scans (un djvu un tiff) qui y sont liés : il s'agit d'un vieu cartulaire, mais Clergeac les a "édités".... et connaissant Commons, il vaudrait peut-être mieux les mettre à l'abri :)

@Yann, Dear Yann I thank you verry much for your Opinion about com:Deletion requests/File:Stein-Walter Johannes.jpg. Who will decide at wich time the end of the discussion?

A littlebit the same problem exists here com:Deletion requests/File:F.W. Zeylmans van Emmichoven.jpg only with the difference that it was my Grandpa and J.E. Z.v.E. my Father and that Jim has a verry restrictive opinion about this case. -Normally verry good, but in this extraordinally special case?.... It exists allready a lot of books with photos of my Grandpa without any note to the photographer. see here on WorldCat.

Moving files around

Hi!

When you move files remember to fix old usage. Example: You moved File:Dam Site on the way to Valpara, Kerala Side, India.jpg and the NowCommons on wts is now broken.

So please check the files you have moved and correct the problems.

I suggest that you also do a search on Google to find out if the files was used outside the Wikis. Global usage does not show that.

I also noticed that you did not mention a reason to move. I expect that you do know Commons:File renaming so you should be able to add one of the valid reasons to move.

Cheers --MGA73 (talk) 18:38, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Je m'aperçois que ton vote en FPC fut le 7ème, et a ainsi emporté la décision pour mon promontoire rocheux espagnol de Calahonda.

C'est grâce à toi, et je t'en remercie.--Jebulon (talk) 17:39, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Уважаемый Yann

Вы удалили много фотографий из Commons, причем и загруженные мною, якобы мы нарушаем авторское право! (К примеру вот это фото: Пенсионный_фонд_Дагестана.png) правда, я скачал его из сайта http://www.panoramio.com/photo/30332404, и указал адрес сайта. И у тебя тоже так оказывается, к примеру фото Ганди

Note that I've renominated Commons:Deletion requests/File:British occupation troops marching on the Galata Bridge.jpg, a deletion request you closed a couple weeks ago.

Help !

Bonsoir, Yann. Je viens de tenter de terminer la procédure de promotion d'un set d'Archaeo [San Martino (Venice) Exterior] sur la page VI et... je me retrouve avec quelque chose qui ne cadre pas : j'ai dû oublier une étape et j'obtiens des liens rouges sous chaque image. Le set, lui, a changé d'apect mais pas de page. Comme les passants sont rares en VI, je m'adresse à toi car je t'y ai déjà rencontré. Peux-tu jeter un coup d'œil à la page VI et essayer de rectifier. La procédure était certainement trop compliquée pour moi ! -- Merci d'avance. Je passe un mot à Archéo.

Exif category?

Hi, I saw that you deleted the category Category:Taken with Nikon D200 (exif) last month; just now I came across File:Larry Flynt Wheelchair.jpg which has a red-link to that category, apparently automatically generated from the exif data. I'm not sure whether we should redirect Category:Taken with Nikon D200 (exif) to Category:Taken with Nikon D200, or make it a subcategory thereof, or have mediawiki automatically create links to that category, or what.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Hadsund byskilt.png

Not that I totally disagree with your point of view - I would just simply ask you to elaborate on this matter. How simple do you regard this sign? After all it is not some random pattern, but actually depicts something. --|EPO| da: 13:59, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Compare Commons:TOO#Denmark, particularly the WWF logo. These "not copyrightable" decisions are never easy, and a court always might decide differently, but there is a basis for it there. Rd232 (talk) 17:09, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
Interesting argument there. I see there might be a connection between the cases. Thanks for pointing that one out. --|EPO| da: 14:40, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Contradiction

Hi, and sorry for this appearing nearly three months after the event. You made a comment here that appears to contradict the text contained in {{PD-India}}. I'm not good on image copyright stuff and may have misunderstood something. Can you explain? - Sitush (talk) 17:48, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

The template says Photographs created before 1958 are in the public domain 50 years after creation, as per the Copyright Act 1911. That's the case of these images. Yann (talk) 10:01, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Zbigniew Boniek - Supercoppa UEFA 1984.jpg

Bonjour. J'aimerai connaître exactement les raisons qui vous ont poussé à supprimer ce fichier, qui il me semblait était soumis à cette règle spécifique italienne. Cordialement. Pilkarz (talk) 14:40, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Please read the template carefully: Works of photographic art are protected for 70 years after the author's death (Art. 32 bis), whereas simple photographs are protected for a period of 20 years from creation. The simple photography must not have artistic merit or reflections of photographer creativity or personality. This image certainly has an artistic merit. Yann (talk) 14:45, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
J'ai lu l'information entièrement (et plusieurs fois) et ce n'est pas comme cela que j'ai jugé ce fichier. Mais soit, puisque les avis divergent, autant s'en tenir à la situation actuelle. Bonne journée, et bonnes fêtes de fin d'année. Pilkarz (talk) 14:53, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much. Happy Holidays to you. --Mjrmtg (talk) 18:00, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Hi Yann - sorry, but I disagree very strongly that these are too simple to be copyrighted. That was also the conclusion of others who commented at Commons:Help desk#Derivative of copyright text. And these are the work of a local association, not the work of a federal government employee. These should not have been restored. Please reconsider your decision! - MPF (talk) 20:55, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
I can't see what could get a copyright in these. The text is very short and very simple. Anyway, these files need a proper deletion request, a speedy deletion is not sufficient. Regards, Yann (talk) 10:59, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Two were speedied after several other very similar files had been through a full deletion request and deleted on the basis of being derivatives of copyright works, and had thereby set a precedent. One other similar file with a deletion request was kept but only because it was in Spain where Freedom of Panorama exists (without that, it would have been deleted too); FOP of course does not exist in the USA. - MPF (talk) 18:37, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, that was wrong. It would not be the first time. Yann (talk) 18:44, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Undeleted in 2013

Bonjour,

Une raison particulière à enlever cette catégorie des DR ?

Jean-Fred (talk)

Pas de souci :).
Au passage : tu as dû voir, j’ai créé Category:French_FOP_cases/undeleted. Cela me semble mieux car les catégories /kept et /deleted sont aussi bonnes comme "jurisprudence" (qu’est-ce qu’on a considéré De minimis, comme dépassant le seuil d’originalité etc.) et cela me semble dommage de perdre cette information. D’où cette nouvelle catégorie (pas forcément super bien nommée, mais on pourra changer s’il faut).
Bonne année à toi aussi !
OK, oui, c'est mieux, même si j'ai des doutes sur la validité de la jurisprudence en la matière. Certaines images n'auraient jamais du être supprimées. Yann (talk) 14:13, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

FOP toujours et meilleurs vœux

Merci, Yann, de ton intervention rapide suite à ma demande de suppression de fichier, mais je crois que le problème est réglé. J'ai pensé que le monument datait des années 1920 et que le sculpteur était mort depuis longtemps, il n'en est rien : 1898-1962 (je viens de répondre à ta question sur la page de discussion). J'aurais dû faire la recherche avant d'uploader le fichier. Je suis trop étourdi : c'est la 4e fois que cela m'arrive... en 4 semaines. Je dois absolument faire mieux en 2013... car si la loi est ennuyeuse, les téléchargeurs compulsifs sont les seuls responsables de son application. -- Je profite de l'occasion pour te souhaiter une bonne et heureuse année 2013. Bien cordialement. JLPC (talk) 15:04, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Un oubli très ancien que je viens enfin de réparer. Il concerne le fichier : "File:Angoulême Horloge marché 2012.jpg", que tu avais eu la gentillesse de retoucher et qui, pour cette raison ne figurait pas dans ma catégorie d'images de qualité. En revanche, j'avais complètement oublié de le porter à ton crédit : voilà qui est fait. Bien cordialement. --JLPC (talk) 11:36, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Valued Images...

I have been hunting down various categories of people from India to nominate for VIC. (Looks like you have done that in the past and have successfully nominated too.) Could you suggest which one of the Category:Raageshwari is a good one? Many of it are nice, professionally taken and actually donated to Commons by Raageshwari herself. Some could also stand and give a fight at COM:FPC. But they don't have geocoding on them. How necessary is geocoding for portrait images, especially the ones which are taken in open-studio like place? §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 04:03, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Yes, it has a copyright, and you are not the photographer, so you are not allowed to publish it on Commons without a formal permission. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:02, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Diana Johnson image

Hi Yann - No, the Diana Johnson image in question was not taken by me, it was supplied by Johnson's Communications Manager after I contacted her office for a public-domain image to replace one deleted before Christmas. (That one had copyright issues too, apparently). The main problem is, I'm too inexperienced in uploading images to know how to write up licensing details correctly. So far I've been advised by another editor to get Johnson's office to email their permission direct to wikimedia.org, "with the details of the image". But I'm not entirely sure what details are needed - name of person who took the shot? Date? I don't know either what sort of license it's eligible for. When I upload my own work I just make it Public Domain because that's easiest. Anyway I'm about to contact her office again, hopefully within the time limit allowed.RLamb (talk) 14:58, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

If this is the case, please send a permission, and add a license. From the metadata, I see that Richard Maude is the copyright holder. So he should give the permission. See COM:OTRS for details. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:04, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer. :) --MehdiTalk 13:15, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Treason and Plot

Hi! File:Wikipedia Treason and Plot.jpg is simply the Wikipedia blackout picture, released under CC, modified by me superimposing a picture of a Guy Fawkes mask. I assumed that the whole point of CC was that you can do stuff with it? Sorry if I have made a mistake. Peter Damian (talk) 20:23, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

You forgot to add a license, and you need to provide a source for the image of the mask. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:27, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Commons:Valued image candidates/Façade of the Dome of the Rock

Hi Yann- Quick question: my proposed VIS was supported and has a green border. However on the Commons:Valued_image_candidates page it still shows up in blue and the supporting comment is not visible. Did I make a mistake when I set up the nomination? Thanks -- Godot13 (talk) 21:08, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Hmm. Good question. I see the same, and I don't know why. You should ask on the project talk page. Yann (talk) 21:15, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, will do. - Godot13 (talk) 21:16, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

File:Apple A6 Chip.jpg

Hi. I noted in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Apple A6 Chip.jpg that the linked copyright request has apparently been accepted. The copyright holder was not specifically asked to release the work under a free licence, as required by OTRS. How do you think this should be dealt with? Thanks. -- Trevj (talk) 15:17, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Sorry to butt in. I just wondered if you spotted the above OTRS comment (#File:Apple A6 Chip.jpg). Cheers. -- Trevj (talk) 11:46, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I saw that. The file was restored. Is there anything I can do? Yann (talk) 15:00, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. My question was regarding the Twitter authorisation, which isn't the same as OTRS. It would seem that this should be followed up. What do you think? -- Trevj (talk) 10:21, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
I think nothing can get a copyright in this photo, even the Apple logo, so no permission is needed. Yann (talk) 11:53, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks - I've replied above. -- Trevj (talk) 08:22, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry - I now see that I missed the "Picture traced from this original photograph" bit... although by my reading, that still makes it a derivative work. Regarding copyright in photos themselves (as you mention at #Copyright violation), there are a few similar photos which seem to be correctly licensed in accordance with Commons:Licensing, e.g. KL ALi M6117B.jpg, KL CHIPS F8680 SoC.jpg, KL ETEQ ET486SLC2.jpg, MMN80CPU.jpg. I still maintain that the Twitter approval (for the A6 chip) is insufficient, and additionally note that Apple-A5-APL2498.jpg and Apple A4 Chip.jpg also seem to be be DWs. Perhaps I'm misinterpreting things or otherwise missing something. Sorry for the lengthy reply - what do you think? -- Trevj (talk) 08:22, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Derivative of what? Did you read what I wrote? Nothing can get a copyright in this photo, therefore no permission is needed. Yann (talk) 08:45, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Maybe my understanding of copyright is flawed.
  1. The photo was not taken by the editor who then created the artwork (chip illustration)
  2. The artwork was based on someone else's (copyrighted) photo
  3. Can a photo taken by someone else really be used as a basis for further (freely licensed) work, if the original photo wasn't freely licensed?
  4. If there's nothing copyrightable in such chip photos, then why would other such photos have OTRS authorisations?
Please understand that I'm not being deliberately ignorant, but am just trying to get a fuller understanding of this. Please feel free to suggest that I direct my queries elsewhere, if that would suit you better. Thanks. -- Trevj (talk) 21:27, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
