Brooklyn Museum images

Hi Yann. I am working to migrate the Brooklyn Museum's images from Flickr to Wikimedia Commons so they can be accessible to a much wider audience. We developed the 'no known restrictions' template for this purpose. Please reference this discussion Commons:Deletion_requests/Template:Brooklyn_Museum-no_known_restrictions that followed a similar deletion request. The vast majority of votes amongst the Wikimedia community were 'Keep'. We hope you allow these images to remain part of Wikimedia Commons. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gianaricci (talk • contribs)

@Gianaricci:
Yes, these images are acceptable, but they need a license. This template alone is not sufficient. For all US images dated before 1923, you can use {{PD-US}}. Please sign your messages. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:28, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

License Corrections User:Mansoor Ijaz

Hello Yann, I have a question for the Wikimedia Commons talk pages that we as authors and users support. Once matters are settled one way or the other for uploaded images, am I allowed to go into my own talk page and tidy it up by getting rid of old stuff so it is easier for new topics to be dealt with? If so, is there a protocol for how to do that? My talk page could use some tidying up.

Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 21:11, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

@Mansoor Ijaz: Hello,
Yes, that's fine. You can also keep a track of previous discussion like I do in creating an archive in User:Mansoor Ijaz/archive. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:44, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello Yann,

I have now resubmitted and revised licensing for the following images:

1. File:Memorandum & Judicial Commission Report.png
2. File:2000.08.17 KASHMIR Sayed Salahuddin Letter to Clinton on Peace Offer.jpg
3. File:Bashir letter to Hamilton.jpg
4. File:Gen Abe & Reagan (SDI).png
5. File:Bill Clinton & Mansoor Ijaz at the White House, 1997.jpg

In certain cases, I tried (unsuccessfully) to add the Category of Government Documents to the amended licensing -- perhaps you could help with that.

Does this now resolve the issue? For the All-America Powerlifting Certificate image, I maintain that is my own work. I have requested licensing from Newsweek Pakistan for the image you deleted (Memogate cover story). I have requested a date of image for the Ahmad Shuja Pasha image that you questioned.

Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 09:05, 9 February 2014 (UTC)


Hello Yann,
I have corrected to the best of my understanding and knowledge each of the author and source issues with the challenged images.
Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 16:43, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello Yann
On your suggestion, I have submitted the following wording for a license request to Wikimedia Commons. I would appreciate your feedback on whether this is sufficient. As you have warned me to not upload further images, perhaps you would consider undeleting with the proper license language input or release me to upload the image again and explain where and how I put this licensing information into the upload template.
Many thanks, Mansoor
I, Mansoor Ijaz, license this image for free publication in Wikimedia Commons acting on behalf of myself as editor of the letter's content and on behalf of Mr Syed Salahuddin, originator of the content and signatory of the letter who is neither fluent in the English language nor to my knowledge with regular internet access. I confirm that I acted as personal emissary for Mr Salahuddin in delivering the letter to then-President William Jefferson Clinton at a White House meeting in late August 2000 with his then-chief of staff, Hon. John Podesta. I own and maintain in my archives an original copy of the letter signed by Mr Salahuddin. The letter was created on August 16, 2000 at 1916hrs local time in Islamabad, Pakistan on my laptop computer and was edited and re-drafted until a final copy was saved from my computer at 1229hrs on the morning of August 17, 2000 to a local hard drive before being locally printed on to Hizbul Mujahedeen letterhead in Mr Salahuddin's office and signed by him. Mr Salahuddin and I have not had contact for nearly 14 years, and there is no prospect or reason for us to have any contact in the future. The letter is of historical importance.

@Mansoor Ijaz: Hello,
It looks fine to me. There is always a backlog in OTRS tickets, so it take some time. Regards, Yann (talk) 19:08, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for support on the Judicial Commission Report PDF file.

Would the following language work, in your opinion, if submitted to Wikimedia Commons as an Undelete request?

I, Mansoor Ijaz, license this document for free publication in Wikimedia Commons. It is my own work, was drafted in its entirety on my laptop computer by me as a Witness Statement at the request of the Supreme Court of Pakistan (Respondent No.5). The document was created on 13 December 2011 at 1804 CET and completed on 14 December 2011 at 1222 before being printed and sent to the Supreme Court by courier. The document was made public by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in January 2012 at the start of hearings by its Judicial Commission, a legal body constituted to hear evidence in the matter of the Mullen Memorandum.

Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 19:16, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

@Mansoor Ijaz: Yes, it looks fine. Regards, Yann (talk) 19:22, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello Yann, a short note to thank you for your assistance and guidance -- I am now slowly learning how Wikimedia Commons works. User:Motopark left a message at my talk page with respect to an image previously uploaded under a different username. I re-uploaded it under my own username recently, so I don't understand what the problem is there. Is it that he refers to deleting the old one, the new one or both? What is needed for me to do in this case? It is an image from my own BlackBerry handset. Thanks for a minute to help out.

Best Regards, Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 18:11, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Salut,
Y-a-t'il une page dédiée au signalement de copyvios massifs, difficilement traitables image après image ?
Concrètement j'ai le problème avec ces téléversements [1] : je n'ai identifié formellement que deux copyvios pour le moment (en 30 s) mais il est très probable que toute la série pose problème.

About images I uploaded

Hi,

thank you for your help about my image uploading problems. Most of images I uploaded were photos which I gained official permission from publishers or photographer, and they do appreciate(I am willing to show evidences) that I uploaded. Thus, I suppose I can upload them again, however, as you may know that photos which once deleted won't be able to upload again. Would you mind to give me advice? I'm sorry to ask you while you might be very busy, but I appreciate your help and kindness.

Regards

Gamera1123

Thank you for the upload!

Tarot deletions

Something went wrong with the second mass deletion list for [2], while the list of files is there, there are no deletion buttons and etc. next to them. The files do have the pink box for the nomination. I don't know how to fix this and I saw you deleted the previous pile from same uploader and thought you might know how to fix. Cheers!

Bollywood Hungama images undeleted

Hi I saw that you undeleted a number of film set pictures which were previously deleted. Just want to know how it is possible that a website similar to w:TMZ, run by paparazzi could possible own rights to images on film sets. I don't think producers or directors would allow paps on the sets clicking behind the scenes pictures. Some pictures are just not possible to be owned by bollywoodhungama like File:On the sets of OMG.jpg ; File:Jism 2 set.jpg ; File:Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Sudeep on the sets of Eega.jpg and many more.

In the license it mentions ..Only photographs used by this site from Bollywood Hungama parties/events that are exclusively created by their own photographers... so it does not fall under film sets. Still if you do think the images are owned by bollywood hungama, then I think the license should be edited to add film sets in the allowed part as with the latest edit there is no mention of film sets in either exception or allowed leaving it to each's interpretation.

Images - copyright

Hi Yann,

Thanks for your feedback; this is my first time editing and uploading images. I was confused because the sites I took the images from didn't appear to be run by people that owned those images either. Some of the images were also quite common in the Google image bank, and I assumed that they were in the public domain (I always understood that if a source has been cited at least five times, you can consider it to be "common knowledge")?

I await your comments, and of course understand if you are unable to continue hosting these images on this site.

Claudia

Hi,
Almost everything on the web has a copyright. We are quite strict and only accept images under a free license. See COM:L for details. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:24, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

RE: Copyright Violation

Hi Yann

I have been trying to upload a logo to a danish wikipedia site, but the logo keeps getting removed. I have read the copyright/licens paragraph on wikipedia commons, but it seems that there is something I have missed?

I have contacted the company (Interflora Denmark), and they have given me permission to use the logo which is by the way also fully accessible to download on their website (here: http://www.interflora.dk/om-interflora/presse/logo/)

The file in question is: File:Interflora DK 3d logo.png

I am a recent contributor to wikipedia, and would like to know what exactly I am doing wrong?

All the best

Meberg — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meberg1234 (talk • contribs)

@Meberg1234: Hello,
This logo is copyrighted by Interflora. So you need a permission to upload it on Commons. You can also upload it on the English Wikipedia under a fair user rationale, but fair use is not accepted on Commons. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:15, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok Thanks
I do have the permission to use the logo on an email. Do i just upload the text granting me permission from this mail?
Also, since the file has been deleted by wikipedia, it is not possible to upload the logo again. The message on the uploading wizard writes that since a file with the same content hase been deleted, it is not possible to to upload again. Is there anything I can do about that?
@Meberg1234: Hello,
Please send the permission. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Then the file will be undeleted. Do not hesitate to ask if you have questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:34, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

User: Habitualentrepreneur

Hello Yann, I have gotten your notices regarding some of the photos I have been uploading for the 'Startup Grind' page I am creating. I work for the organization and this is the first time I have authored a Wikipedia page, so I am working through some of my own issues and time constraints. Every image, including the ones already deleted of Ted Leonsis and Jermaine Dupri are used and owned by the organization, I am just struggling on how to describe the license for these works, but in the meantime had started to upload them to visually construct the page. Feedback or advice for a mobile would be appreciated here so my files and work is not destroyed while it is being created. hope to talk soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Habitualentrepreneur (talk • contribs)

@Habitualentrepreneur: Hello,
You need to send a permission before uploading documents to Commons if you are not the creator. Please see COM:OTRS for the procedure. These documents should be uploaded under a free license. See COM:L. I think you should ask the legal department of your organisation. Do not hesitate to ask if you have questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:21, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Cliffswallow-vaulting

They have a message granting Public Domain on their source pages. (At the bottom of each page).

Did you check?

I also already substituted this template in the right place-- {{PD-US}} in each image in the corrected area (I did the substituition in each case).

Also I do not have an institution (you said "your institution"). I am working by myself.

Thanks, Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:03, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

@Cliffswallow-vaulting: Hello,
Yes, I checked every file. There is no mention of "public domain", only "© Copyright February 21, 2001 Maryland State Archives". {{PD-US}} is only valid for old images, published before 1923 (read the template please). And "fair use" images are not accepted on Commons. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:14, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
You missed it. It is in the (middle of each page [at the bottom]).
It's inside a paragraph that says this:
“This information resource of the Maryland State Archives is presented here for fair use in the public domain. When this material is used, in whole or in part, proper citation and credit must be attributed to the Maryland State Archives. PLEASE NOTE: Rights assessment for associated source material is the responsibility of the user.”
Here, http://msa.maryland.gov/msa/mdmanual/25univ/stmarys/html/stmarysf.html
Thanks, :-)
Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:22, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
OK, but I think that this mention is misleading. A document can't be at the same time, in the public domain, and under a copyright by the Maryland State Archives. So basically, these documents can only be used under a fair use rationale. Sorry. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:29, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes it can, it's Public Domain but only if you acknowledge the source (if you don't acknowledge the source, only then is it copyrighted).
Look here, (I added a new bold-face to highlight it:
“This information resource of the Maryland State Archives is presented here for fair use in the public domain. When this material is used, in whole or in part, proper citation and credit must be attributed to the Maryland State Archives. PLEASE NOTE: Rights assessment for associated source material is the responsibility of the user.”
That means, it's public domain, only as long as you give a citation (write in the caption and the image notes where the article came from. Otherwise, it's copyrighted).
Thanks, Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:34, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
What is a "fair use" rationale, and how does it work? Thanks, Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 07:56, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
It is an exception to copyright in US law, which is accepted on the English Wikipedia for some images. See en:fair use. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:00, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! But it does meet the fair use "tests"--
(From the section "Common misunderstandings" on the Fair use page-- Fair use
1) "First, it found the purpose of creating the thumbnail images"
(the images are all thumbnails-- the file info).
2) ...as previews to be sufficiently transformative, noting that they were not meant to be viewed at high resolution like the original artwork was."
(The images all have reduced resolution from the originals--Wikipedia prompted me in each case, to choose the resolution, and in each case, I lowered the resolution below that of the originals).
3) "the photographs had already been published diminishing the significance of their nature as creative works."
(they are all already published on the Internet, as my eariler links showed).
4) "...the market for the original photographs would not be substantially diminished by the creation of the thumbnails."
(There is not market, they are on a state government website that is not selling anything).
5) "To the contrary, the thumbnail searches could increase exposure of the originals.
(That's right, they would).
"In looking at all these factors as a whole, the court found that the thumbnails were fair use"
(And the "St. Mary's College" images should be restored (undeleted) too, for the exact same reasons)
Sincerely,
Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 08:32, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
I think I am right. Please ask undeletion on Commons:Undeletion requests/Current requests‎, or ask a permission from the Maryland State Archives. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:46, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually you are right, here, it's very simple-- COM:FAIRUSE
Sorry,
Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 08:50, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
My sincere apologies, good night. Cliffswallow-vaulting (talk) 08:57, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

information

hello Yann, how are you doing?

im new to Wikicommons and still trying to understand how it works. Most of my articles on wikipedia are historical, thus I have no photos to use that were taken by me. Im having trouble understanding which photos from websites I can upload and which I can't. How can I tell between a free photograph and an owned one while im visiting a random historical website?

thanks, Nimrod. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ScottyNolan (talk • contribs)

@ScottyNolan: Hi,
Any modern picture or document has a copyright. Only those older than 120 years may be allowed without more information. For the rest, you need to check who is the author or photographer, and can be uploaded only if he/she is dead for more than 70 years. Please see COM:L for more details. For recent documents, you need to obtain a permission from the author copyright owner. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Do not hesitate to ask if you have other questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:21, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
thank you for the information,
I have contacted several websites in order to email their permit to use the pictures. Yet, I did not understand two things - the first is whether it is enough to email a one-time permittion of a site which I intend to use more than one photograph in its domain, meaning - is there a way to get a one-time permit to use all of a certain website photos?. the second, is whether an historical photograph/drawing taken from more than 120 years ago, but is published under a certain website which I cannot guarantee its free usage policy, will be OK to use or still needed permittion?
Thank you very much for the help,
Nimrod.
@ScottyNolan: Hi,
1. The best is to list all pictures in one email, to avoid any confusion later.
2. If you are certain of the date of a picture, yes, you don't need a permission. Do not forget to mention all information in the description. Many images are deleted simply because the uploader didn't do that. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:10, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Copyright about images

Hi Yann,

Thank you for your feedback. The photos that I uploaded is what I screenshot from the Facebook page CityU Secrets. May I know how can I use these photos? Am I violating the copyright rules?

Thank you so much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reimgp1 (talk • contribs)

@Reimgp1: Hi,
Yes, these are copyright violations unless you have a permission from the photographer. To send a permission, see COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:02, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reminders. But most of my screenshots are not owned by photographers, they are just postings on a Facebook page wall. What should I do if I want the permission?
So should I first delete the photos that I uploaded,and will my account be blocked?
Thank you again.
@Reimgp1: Hi,
Screenshots are copyrighted too. You need a permission from the company CityU Secrets. And please do not upload more of them before getting the permission, or you will be blocked. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:16, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Question

Hi Yann: Still trying to learn my way here. This Commons:Deletion requests/File:Torcida acendendo sinalizadores.jpg, I tagged because the image is overprinted and sourced to someone with no apparent connection to uploader and no way to verify the alleged permission given to use the photo any which way. I thought it was on the uploader to provide COM:EVID of any such licenses? Thanks for the clarity. Ellin Beltz (talk) 06:34, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I misundertood what you mean in the DR. Deleted. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:10, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I will try to be more specific in future! Ellin Beltz (talk) 05:54, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

File:K-k-guin.JPG

Dear Yann, Thanks for your warning, please note I upload the media file, it is my prof. profile pic, taken from the college website. And the same is available on public domain. http://www.iitkgp.ac.in/fac-profiles/fac-photos/FC90069.JPG I would like to request you to kindly help me how to add the license. I am really confused on the same. Please help me. File:K-k-guin.JPG

Same for the File:Nettech-t10-lab-test-iiit-bbsr-2012.webm.

this is my own work, and the same is available at http://www.nettech.in/blog/video/Nettech-t10-lab-test-iiit-bbsr-2012.webm

Very sorry for behaving like a noob .. Looking forward for your help on the same.

Thanking you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spurkait (talk • contribs)

@Spurkait: Hi,
Since these images were published on another web site before being uploaded here, we required a permission. Please note that if you are not the photographer, you need to ask him/her for the permission. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Do not hesitate to ask if you have questions.

Template:Not-PD-US-URAA

(diff) "Images whose copyright was restored in the U.S. by the URAA are accepted at Wikimedia Commons" — I think we should still clarify that such files are not always implicitly allowed, they must be also be subject to the other regular Commons criteria like being in project scope as well as freely licensed in the source country they originate from for Commons to host them. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 15:30, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, obviously, they must satisfy all other criteria, but I think this is true for every file, so I don't see the need to explain that here. I don't have a strong opinion about this, I just think that it is not necessary. This is all the less necessary because URAA-affected files are usually historical, so they are probably in scope. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:35, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

URAA restoration and ENWP

I have been following the Commons URAA discussion that you closed today (thank you) and so I've suggested ENWP should follow the same policy, see en:WP:VPPR#Allow images previously disallowed because of URAA copyright restoration. I can't see any snags for the Wikipedias but can you? Thincat (talk) 20:26, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

@Thincat: Hi,
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by "snags". These files should be uploaded to Commons, not to En WP. I don't participate much in English WP, so I can't say much more. Regards, Yann (talk) 20:31, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Some people upload images to ENWP even when they could be stored on Commons. Often these files are later moved to Commons. The suggestion is to allow URAA-restored images to be on ENWP in the same way that they will be now on Commons. If we do not have the same policies files will tend to be moved to whichever project is more accepting. I think making the policy change on ENWP will be helpful but I was wondering if you could think of any disadvantages. Best wishes. Thincat (talk) 05:57, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, fine. Yann (talk) 06:09, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Help, please

Hi Yann: I found this image today while reviewing new uploads.

Copyright violation

Hello Yann,

I've received a message from you about copyrighting (User talk:Bela.ana#Copyright violations)

Sorry, I had no intention to violate copyrights. But I don't understand - if Files were downloaded from official site or any other open resource and then were uploaded here how is that become illegal? All my files were downloaded from the open source klyuev-karate.ru

Please give me a piece of advice about licensing if you can.

Many thanks, Bela ana — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bela.ana (talk • contribs)

I don't see any permission, or information on this website that the images are in the public domain. Unless otherwise indicated, there is a copyright. Please read COM:L. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:15, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you.
I'll download my own picture then.

Ravel again

Hello, sorry about before re: the Ravel works: since they are now permissible on Commons, could you restore the Ravel files that are red-linked in this revision of the Ravel page? You can then use this link to undo the relevant edits by CommonsDelinker. There are also some other files: File:Bol 54.mid, file:Bolero flute ravel.mid, and a few audio files in my deleted contributions from November 2011 (I can't remember their names), which could be undeleted. Thanks! Graham87 (talk) 13:53, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

@Graham87: Hi,
Could you please post a request on COM:UDR, just to follow the right procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:01, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
done. Graham87 (talk) 01:52, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
So Yann, Fastily, I can't get files of compositions by Ravel speedily deleted because they don't violate Commons policy, but I can't get them undeleted either because they might violate project policy. Interesting! Graham87 (talk) 11:45, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

user:FlavioThiago

Thank you for eliminating all his images.

He has no account at pt.wikipedia, but ALL his images were used by user pt:user:RBCampos, minutes after FlavioThiago had upload them. I think this is an evidence of sock-puppetry.

Please take a look at user talk:RBCampos contributions, he has a lot of deleted images, he may be using another account in order to avoid being blocked.

I suggest you block them both, and FlavioThiago for infinite time.

I blocked RBCampos at pt:Wikipedia.

Deletion of the symbol of Czech Air Force unit

I really disagree with your deletion of File:Znak_213._výcvikové_letky.jpg claiming "Copyright violation". In fact, there are many Czech military symbols, for example File:Logo of the Czech Armed Forces.svg since 2008 or File:VVS ARC.jpg with PD-CzechGov licence. Otherwise, you have to delete all these files and I think it does not make sense. --CS92 (talk) 21:16, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

@CS92: Hi,
This image is a derivative work of a cartoon by DreamWorks, which has a copyright. Additionally the source says "Copyright © 2014 www.afbcaslav.cz". It is not made the government of the Czech Republic. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:03, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, thank you for your explanation as I don't know anything about those DreamWorks cartoons ;) Still, it is quite ironic that the Air Force personnel violates copyright. I will send an e-mail to www.afbcaslav.cz about this issue.--CS92 (talk) 10:26, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
@CS92: Hi,
There could be several valid reasons for some Air Force people using this: 1. they could have a limited permission from DreamWorks; 2. they could simply use a fair use rationale. None of this is a free license. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:21, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Eiza

Hello Yann, I disagree with your deletion of File:Eiza González en IDM pasarelas.jpg.

Re: Image distortion

Hi Yann -

Thanks for responding to my request. I understand the file is not corrupted. But yesterday when they were uploaded the images were in color. Now, they are in black and white. Any idea how this could have happened? What is the fastest way to replace them with color copies?

Thanks, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Evelyn Swan (talk • contribs)

@Evelyn Swan: hello,
Your images look fine, I don't see any distortion, and they are well in color.
You should send a permission for pictures for which you are not the photographer, i.e. File:AFAM Exterior 2013.jpg and File:Eugene Von Bruenchenhein (1910–1983), untitled, c. 1940s–mid-1950s.jpg.

Guidance

Greetings Yann! I am asking for admin guidance on gallery of user who uploaded this image. I find several of these "contact me for license" comments on his uploads, one of his files was deleted for missing source and he left a note on my talk page which made me go take a look at his uploads. My gut instinct is to nominate the entire gallery for deletion, but assuming COM:AGF for this uploader, I hesitate. Perhaps he thinks he is doing good things? I am conflicted and cannot proceed on this one. Your assistance will be most graciously appreciated. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:35, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

@Ellin Beltz: Hi,
Seeing that all needed information are provided, and that his/her other uploads are correctly licensed, I think it is OK. Nevertheless, if he sends a permission, it would even be better, and assure that nobody questions the copyright status. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:50, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

I suggested to him that he review his other uploads and perhaps provide OTRS for these which are claimed to be his friends, his mom's, and so on. Thanks for the help! Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:10, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Jerome David Salinger

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:T%C3%BArelio#Salinger File:Portrait of Jerome David Salinger.jpg As I've already write in this link, the file that you has deleted today, it's a my own work. It's loaded in another websites because I upload its:

  • on December, 25th, 2013 on it.wikipedia and I've released free, and then is copied by some italian blogs
  • today I load on Commons and the double file deleted by it-wikipedia, after I lead the template NowCommons
  • today, well, I've reloaded on it-wikipedia, after the deletion by commons.

The work is painted by me; as model I used a photo of Salinger by his Military college yearbook (1930s), "aged" by myself (hand work). It's PD-US No notice. No indication of copyright is given in the school-edited volume. --StefanoRR (talk) 14:46, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Tj Warren - Acc Player of the year 2014.jpeg

Hello,

I was curious to why my photo for Tj warren (college basketball photo in the ncaa tournament) was deleted. I understand it was from the internet so it needs copyright license and all that. However I emailed the director of communications for the school of North Carolina State University who owned the photos and he allowed me to use them. I sent a permissions email for wikipedia and tagged the article that i used, the photo, the email that I requested copyright license, and the permission that was requested. Wikipedia had allowed it because they though they provided enough license but I see there was an error now because of commons. I was just wondering what other information do i need and is there a way you could undelete the photo. Thank you so much for your time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WhatsDefeat (talk • contribs)

@WhatsDefeat: Hi,
First the license is missing. Second there is no permission in the description page, which is required for all files you didn't make yourself. Please see COM:L for details. So please send a permission, and then the picture can be undeleted. See COM:OTRS for the procedure. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:32, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I obtained license and permission from the original owner through email and I sent all the permissions to the permissions email. Everything went well and I also added the tag to the Wikipedia page I was using the image for but then you deleted the image. I was just wondering what else I could do. I tried following all the correct steps to upload, got permission, sent permission to the email, and put a tag on the Wikipedia page.

Deletion requests

Yesterday you declined a number of deletion requests because "Pictures taken in British India (prior independence) are PD 50 years after creation". The images in question were taken in Sri Lanka (known as Ceylon before 1972). Ceylon was never a part of British India, it was a separate crown colony with its own laws. Could you please review your decision?--Obi2canibe (talk) 13:41, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Why do you think that it has a different copyright law that British India, and England itself? Yann (talk) 13:49, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
The onus is on the uploader (and now yourself) to prove that they had the same copyright laws. You are making assumptions that Ceylon had the same copyright law as British India or England without providing any proof. --Obi2canibe (talk) 14:28, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, but you are reversing the sides. AFAIK, the copyright laws are similar in all Crown colonies, until you prove the opposite. Beside, I wonder why you are so eager to delete these... Yann (talk) 15:00, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
I would be interested in taking a look at the DR if these are marginal cases, could you please share a link to the best case example?

Massive deletion threat

Hi Yaan, i hope that you can help me on this. Long time ago i've uploaded to commons lots of images with more of 80 years old, so i think they're copyright free now. Well the problem is that the user küñall not only left empty the categories when i put those images , but now he want to nominate the pictures for deletion just beacuse their author and date don't say: "Unknown author" or "Unknown date" (the pictures are too old to know their original authors or dates, and are too many to change all that data manually). Click >>here<< if you want to see the images, well i hope you can help me on this, regards.--Alexxxos (talk) 23:27, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

@Alexxxos: Did s/he created a deletion request? Old images can be in the public domain under some precise conditions: the author really needs to be unknown, not just you don't know. You need to add as much information as possible, i.e. the date when it was published or created, the source of the images, and a proper license. For example, File:Vista General de Valparaíso.jpg is certainly not "own work", the date is wrong, and you are not the author. Regards, Yann (talk) 12:17, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes he has created a deletion request, that includes all the files that i've uploaded to Commons, not just the old ones.--Alexxxos (talk) 21:21, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
I made it after seeing that you had no desire to comply with policy requirements on copyright. You do have to provide full copyright information. You are free to remove your totally own images from the nomination, and when you change the copyright information of the old images (remove your name as the author), you will too have the right to remove the files from the deletion request. As Yann points out, you have to provide as much information as possible, so please, if you can, don't just add "unknown author", put real information on it, take it as the last step. The deletion request will remain in place until you do that. It seems to me like you felt threatened by the nomination, don't take it that way, it is a preemptive measure. If one of these images comes out to be a digital remake and the author sues the Foundation... it would be certainly stuff you would not like to experience. If you have any questions, you can just ask, I have no real bad intention by doing this. Kind regards, küñall (nütramyen) 05:28, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Your Suggested Readings on COA and Copyright

Yann, thanks for directing me to those two discussion in the Flag of the Bangladesh Army.svg DR. I apologise it's taken me this long to get around to analysing them and giving you an appropriately thought out response.

I honestly think that LGA and Jim were heading along the same line in both those issues. The only fundamental principle I see differing here is where LGA takes to viewing a blazon as a detailed outline of an image (akin to corporate logos) and Jim sees it as a non-copyrightable recipe.

I do share LGA's concern that the interpretation of COM:COA has been problematic in being used to say that copyright cannot apply to any COA simply because it's been re-drawn or transferred to another format such as an SVG. British and Canadian caselaw both point to three tests being applied: An image is a derivative if the creator 1. Had previous knowledge of the copyrighted work, 2. Was knowingly attempting to mimic the copyrighted work, and 3. The resulting work is 'stylistically similar'. That, and in line with Canadian copyright law, a derivative as copying "any substantial part thereof in any material form whatever" and U.S. copyright law, "A 'derivative work' is a work based upon one or more preexisting works, such as a[n] ... art reproduction...which, as a whole, represent an original work of authorship". And official policy such as COM:DW state "It doesn't matter if a drawing of a copyrighted character's likeness is created entirely by the uploader without any other reference than the uploader's memory. A non-free copyrighted work simply cannot be rendered free without the consent of the copyright holder, not by photographing, drawing nor sculpting".

Applying these legal principles and Commons policies to COA should be fairly straightforward in my mind (especially when COM:COA states "Do not upload Arms or their derivatives directly from the web or official registries. Arms drawn by users based solely on the blazon without any reference to the original drawing are usually safe for upload"). If a COA is copyrighted then any rendition of the COA are also copyrighted as a textbook derivative work, as there does not exist a different set of copyright law specifically for COA, they're just considered artistic works or drawings for legal purposes. However, ideas can't be copyrighted according to copyright law. Thus, since blazons/general descriptions are simply ideas, they are not subject to copyright (unless they were so detailed as to essentially render an exact image). That does not give someone carte blanche however. If the blazon/descriptions is not detailed enough to explain certain elements depicted in the original work, and these elements are still present in the derivative work without mention in the blazon, then it is clear that the original depiction was used in the creation of the derivative (and not solely the blazon) and is thus a copy violation.

The example I like to use is if the flag of Canada were copyrighted, and I asked you to draw it for me based on my description of 'a red maple leaf on a field of white between two red bars', had you never seen it before, you may very well draw me a stylized 26-rounded-point maple leaf in between two thinnish bars, one above and one below. Such a depiction would be clearly based on solely the blazon and be your own work. However, if you drew the same 11-point maple leaf in between two bars in much the same horizontal style and dimensions of the official flag, then clearly the second was made in reference (even if only through your own memory) to the original copyrighted work, and would thus be a copyright violation (prior knowledge, attempt to mimic, stylistically similar).

So, there is no reason to treat COA any differently than other artistic drawings. The only difference being that there exists a 'solely based on blazon' defence that can be used. However, such a defence must be seen with a close analysis of the blazon, ie 'Could this image have been created based on the blazon alone without any reference to the copyrighted work?'. If the answer is yes, then it's not a copy vio. If the answer is no, then it is. In my mind, it is as simply as that.

Granted this analysis only takes into account commonwealth legal perspectives, and American copyright law, so outside of these jurisdictions the case may very well be drastically different. And even within them perhaps, as for example in Canada where actual COA are sanctioned/approved by the Crown (state), officially published by letters patent in the Canada Gazette, and subsequently registered in the Canadian Heraldic Authority's Register of Arms, Flags, and Badges. So, the entire concept is much more regimented and legalised in my home country as compared to many others.

My apologies if my response to your suggested reading is a little too much on the long-winded side.

Regards, trackratte (talk) 00:18, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

@trackratte: Hi,
You said the "that LGA and Jim were heading along the same line in both those issues". Not really, as their conclusion are exactly opposite. I see that Jim has a very careful detailed analysis, which I find useful and interesting, where LGA doesn't offer any real analysis. The whole question is how much details a description of the blason needs to be, so that a drawing can be made without any other source. In your example, the description needs to say that the maple leaf of the Canadian flag has 11 points, otherwise it is not an accurate description of the flag. Finally, CoA is not in my area of knowledge, that's why I don't give my opinion on the DR. I really think that people in the same situation like LGA should really do the same. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:33, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
That is the crux of the issue, the level of detail of the blazon being either sufficient or insufficient. To continue with the flag of Canada example, its blazon is simply, "Gules on a Canadian pale Argent a maple leaf Gules". The size and dimensions of the field and red 'bars' is exactly detailed in the blazon (Canadian pale), however the maple leaf is simply described as a 'red maple leaf'. So, if the Canadian flag were copyrighted, any rendition including an 11-point maple leaf of the same style would be a DW and subsequently a copy vio. This is what I mean by roughly along the same path, as it seems to me that all three of you would agree that to avoid copyright issues only the blazon and nothing but the blazon must be used. trackratte (talk) 16:02, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Voltairine de Cleyre

The thing is, the process used produces a sepia image, so removing the sepia removes some information about what kind of photograph it is. I prefer not to remove that kind of information where I can help it, because there's genuine black and white images from that period (e.g. the John Lorimer Worden image), so colour says something about the image. Also, the desaturation hides some of the detail, for whatever reason. Adam Cuerden (talk) 17:10, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Skulls and Masks -- Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:2010 Comic-Con International

Why can't you get a copyright on a sculpture of a skull? Any sculpture can have a copyright, unless it is below the ToO, and a skull is certainly well beyond that.

I also think you're wrong about the Tusken masks. Aside from the LucasFilm copyright on them, which these homemade masks infringe, there is also the copyright belonging to the creators of these copies. The summary of the USCO ruling on masks which I linked is clear -- unless they are useful, they have a copyright.
