COM:A[edit]

Hey Ytoyoda,

Have you considered being an admin? You seem to have the qualifications to be one. -- 1989 (talk) 06:00, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

@1989: Sorry it took me a while to respond. I appreciate the suggestion, but I'm not quite ready to commit the time or energy to be an admin. Thanks though. Ytoyoda (talk) 16:50, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
I noticed you are using the {{Unfree Flickr file}} template. Would you rather become a license reviewer instead? See COM:LR. 1989 (talk) 21:31, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Cipriana Canovi files[edit]

Hi, I know Cipriana Canovi because she is in an Italian NBA group named Spazio NBA on Facebook, just like me. I have her between my Facebook friends and she autorized me to use her photographs, so she knows that her photos are on Wikipedia Commons. If you want I can pass you the screenshot of the conversation that we had on Facebook to prove that she authorized me to use her photos. Sorry if I made some grammar mistakes but as you can understand I'm from Italy and so I'm not an English native speaker. --Valentinenba97 (msg) 13:45, 2 mar 2019 (CET)

@Valentinenba97: Hi, thank you for responding. The best thing to do, since you interact with Cipriana, is to have her contact the OTRS board (you can see the steps described at COM:OTRS) with an email verifying that she releases her photographs to under the Creative Commons license, and she understands that the photographs can be used or edited by anyone for any purpose. That way, there won’t be any question about the license and they won’t be deleted by mistake. Ytoyoda (talk) 04:28, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi, I sent en E-Mail to the account permissions-it@wikimedia.org, I'm waiting for an answer. --Valentinenba97 (msg) 15:18, 3 mar 2019 (CET)
Hi, sorry but my E-Mail at "permissions-it..." (sorry if I don't remember the entire name) didn't receive any answer, what should I do?--Valentinenba97 (msg), 6 March 2019 2:34 (CET)
@Valentinenba97: That should be fine - they don't always immediately respond. That said, it's always preferable if the copyright owner could contact OTRS directly, so they can be sure she understands what it means to give up a lot of the copyright protections (i.e. it's not just for use in Wikipedia). Thank you for following through though. Ytoyoda (talk) 01:37, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi, they answered them and they told me the same thing. Well I told Cipriana to send them an E-Mail and she did it, so she's waiting for an answer; she told them that she autorizes me to use her photos now and in the future. --Valentinenba97 (msg) 1:15, 7 March 2019 (CET)

File:Sapito de Cantillana (Alsodes cantillanensis)[edit]

Hi! I received a notification by the file "Sapito de Cantillana" in Commons. About the copyright We don't have a source or reference of file because Lucía and I found this frog in a hike and I proposed her uploaded in Commons, this file didn't exist before. This frog species was discovered three years ago in Chile! We were very lucky. 181.57.249.246 01:28, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

@C3r098: @181.57.249.246: Hi, thanks for your message. If she took the photo, she can just follow the steps described at Commons:OTRS and send an email to the OTRS board, explaining that she is okay with the license and that she understands anyone can use or edit the photograph for any purpose.

Regarding copyright rules, new photo uploader[edit]

Hi there,

I'm fairly new to Wikimedia Commons and am not familiar with some of the copyright rules. I thought uploading a picture from Facebook, such as File:JuJu Smith-Schuster 2018 action.jpg would be okay to add since it was online and accessible to the public. Could you explain why Facebook isn't an okay medium to draw pictures from? If I'm in the wrong, I'll be sure to avoid situations like this in the future

--WuTang94 (talk) 21:34, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

@WuTang94: Hi, thank you for responding to me. Copyright is a complicated and messy topic, so I might oversimplify, but here’s the deal:
  1. Almost everything you see on the web or social media is copyrighted and cannot be uploaded to Commons. In fact, if you take a picture with your camera right now, it is protected by copyright and no one is legally allowed to publish or edit the picture without your permission. Which gets to the next point...
  2. The photographer or the agency that hires the photographer owns the copyright. So you found the picture on JuJu Smith-Schuster’s profile, but you need the photographer or the newspaper’s permission. Technically, JuJu isn’t allowed to post the picture on his profile either, but Facebook and Twitter are pretty lax about enforcing copyright. Commons isn’t lax, though, because Wikipedia’s mission is to build an encyclopedia free from any copyright restriction.
  3. And there are photographs of football players on Commons that are copyright free. They’re in the public domain because the photographer explicitly allowed them to be (it has to be explicit, you can’t assume it) or they’re photographed by members of the US Federal Govenmsnt (like members of the military on duty) and not eligible for copyright.
Hope this all helps. Ytoyoda (talk) 22:51, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
@Ytoyoda:Ahh that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying. How about a picture that I have taken myself, but also happened to post on Facebook/Instagram? Would such a picture be allowed on Wikimedia in this case? --WuTang94 (talk) 01:01, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@WuTang94: As long as you state that the picture was originally posted to your social media account, you’ll be fine, but you might be asked to verify that the picture is yours through the COM:OTRS process. Ytoyoda (talk) 01:06, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
