July 2010[edit]

Image:Port lotniczy Kraków-Balice.jpg[edit]

My mistake. I already re-uploaded it. --Tiagox2 15:31, 21 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Apple Valley neighborhood map.png[edit]

Another one from User:Banana1. Blatantly (and admittedly!) copied from Google Maps. I've Speedy Deleted it as a blatant copyvio, but I'm putting this here for the record. LtPowers 20:22, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Alkmaar.jpg[edit]

Delete. My mistake, double upload. --Globe-trotter 13:22, 27 July 2010 (EDT)

  • Speedily deleted, uploader request. LtPowers 15:41, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

August 2010[edit]

Image:Eiffel_europe2.jpg[edit]

Apparently breaches copyright as it shows the light show at nighttime. For more information, see this discussion: [1].

  • Delete. --Globe-trotter 07:32, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
  • I'm tempted to say Keep. It's just blue light; there's nothing copyrightable there. I understand the legal situation in France as far as the lighting scheme goes, but there's only one color of light shining on the tower in this image. But for safety maybe we ought to skip it. LtPowers 19:12, 6 June 2010 (EDT)

Images from user Mariborko[edit]

This user has uploaded many, many images lately, all claimed as public domain. However, spot checking a few turns them up in other places with no such copyright release:

Also found but mislicensed:

I suspect that many, if not all, of his/her other images are also in violation. -- D. Guillaime 22:16, 9 August 2010 (EDT)

Ugh. I favor deleting any that we can't verify are correctly licensed. Good faith only goes so far, and having that many blatant violations destroys it. LtPowers 15:49, 10 August 2010 (EDT)
Here's one more: Image:Letalisce-maribor.jpeg can be also found on [9]; legal notices prohibit reuse ([10], in Slovene) JanezDemsar 09:40, 15 August 2010 (EDT)
It seems that all images he uploaded can be found if you look hard enough.
I've removed all of these images from :en articles. (Phew!) I'll keep this VFD open until the full two weeks are up, but if there are no contrary opinions at that time, all targeted images can be deleted safely. – D. Guillaime 23:36, 19 August 2010 (EDT)
If by "targeted" images you mean only those listed here: I think that we should remove everything he uploaded. I investigated some more and found Image:hoteli-portoroz.jpg on [14], Image:logarska_valley.jpg on [15], both with all rights reserved (they're in lower resolution, though, he must have gotten them elsewhere). Image:Postonjska_jama.jpg and Image:Celjski-dom_8.jpg are both from www.slovenia.info ([16] and [17]), already mentioned above (it's probably the major source of his uploads). Image:Cerknica.jpg is on [18], also copyrighted. Image:soca.jpg and Image:Kranjska_gora_42394.jpg are on [19] and [20] (no explicit copyright on the site, though)... Apart from Image:Letalisce1.jpg, which I couldn't find (yet), every single images he's put on en:Slovenia is in violation.
Checking images one by one manually takes much too much time, TinEye doesn't help much and User:Mariborko doesn't appear to follow his talk page, so I suppose there is no other one solution than deleting all his uploads. JanezDemsar 10:25, 20 August 2010 (EDT)
Oops, I only checked en:Slovenia and overlooked that you took care of other :en sites with these images. I now reverted en:Slovenia, too. JanezDemsar 11:36, 20 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Outcome: deleted, all 141 of them (yikes!). – D. Guillaime 13:51, 25 August 2010 (EDT)

Identifiable people. Texugo 02:37, 8 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:2.jpg[edit]

Looks like a copyvio to me. Most photos taken by uploaders are higher resolution than this. Sure enough, TinEye found it on this page. The filename matches, too; each of the images on that page is named with a number: 1.gif, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, etc. That wouldn't be the case if tarnobrzeg.pl took the image from here, so it's gotta be the other way around. LtPowers 13:59, 8 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Small World.JPG[edit]

I've nominated the original source file on Commons for deletion, so, procedurally, I thought it best to nominate it here too. The problem is the artistic work that went into creating the sets and animatronics pictured here; the Walt Disney Company holds the copyright on those things, making this image a derivative work. LtPowers 13:59, 8 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Fastpass peter pan 2007.jpg[edit]

I've nominated the original source file on Commons for deletion, so, procedurally, I thought it best to nominate it here too. The problem is the Peter Pan artwork in the upper left corner, to which the Walt Disney Company holds the copyright, making this image a derivative work. LtPowers 13:59, 8 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:216 1317-lisboa.jpg[edit]

This image appears to be used all over the web. The original source may or may not be http://www.flickr.com/photos/iplan2go/4367079931/in/photostream/ but either way it's clear that the uploader is not the copyright holder. LtPowers 15:21, 11 July 2010 (EDT)

Images of Bunute[edit]

User:Bunute uploaded these images:

They are each 400 x 400 pixels, and Image:Depan.jpg has the Bunute logo (it's a restaurant/bar in Ubud). That indicates to me that these are likely promo images, although I couldn't find them on the Bunute web site. I'd prefer to delete them to be safe, especially the one with the logo. LtPowers 13:47, 13 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Murree.jpg[edit]

I found a match (complete with three-sided gray border) on TinEye, although the image is no longer on the linked page. Nonetheless, it seems unlikely the uploader actually owns the image as claimed. It also throws into doubt the uploader's other images, of which I was already suspicious even before seeing Murree.jpg: Rabout.jpg and especially Aquapark.jpg (note the crudely obscured area in the bottom right; I'm guessing that was a logo). LtPowers 14:14, 13 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Rafting at progo river.jpg[edit]

Too small to be useful; it looks like it was uploaded to be an ad. LtPowers 14:14, 13 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Cali Plaza Hotel.jpg[edit]

Generic hotel. I already deleted user's other uploads as their filenames contained ampersands which are very bad. LtPowers 15:41, 14 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Cali Plaza Hotel Bar.jpg[edit]

Generic bar, recognizable people. LtPowers 08:46, 15 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Shurakuen Garden.jpg[edit]

I originally uploaded this from wikipedia, but since then I've uploaded my own photo, which has replaced this one in all versions. As an unused wikipedia image (that is used on wikipedia, I think), I don't think we have any need for it anymore now that we have our own image. ChubbyWimbus 22:01, 17 July 2010 (EDT)

I'm not sure I'm looking at the right image. The one you linked has no VfD notice, nor does it indicate that the photo came from some source other than your own camera. Are you sure you linked the right one? LtPowers 17:19, 18 July 2010 (EDT)
Yes. There is another Shurakuen photo that is my own. This was one of my first uploads, so I probably didn't attribute it correctly. The licensing was in public domain on wikipedia, so that's what I put there. Here it is on wikimedia [21]. ChubbyWimbus 00:17, 19 July 2010 (EDT)
Well, if it's in the public domain, there's no harm in keeping it, is there? LtPowers 08:11, 19 July 2010 (EDT)
Nope, not at all, if that's what is decided. It's just an unused photo, so I thought it could be flushed. ChubbyWimbus 00:48, 21 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Guayasamin.jpg[edit]

This image is a copy of a section of a painting with unknown copyright status. We should be not be using it unless we know it's in the public domain. LtPowers 20:30, 18 July 2010 (EDT)


Image:Photo1S.jpg[edit]

Blatant advertising. I found this image on the company's web site, athensbybike.com, which is marked as "all rights reserved". On the other hand, the uploader is User:Athensbybike.com, so it's likely the user account is affiliated. Still, even if the release into the public domain is valid, I don't like letting a company upload what amounts to an ad to our servers. LtPowers 08:17, 19 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Grand Hotel Central.JPG[edit]

Sideways image of a hotel.

  • Delete - Texugo 10:55, 22 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Comarcas_de_Málaga-Junta_de_Andalucia.PNG[edit]

My mistake, it was a double upload. --Globe-trotter 11:21, 22 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Tower in Kaunas City Wall .jpg[edit]

GFDL is not a valid license on Wikitravel (unless multi-licensed). LtPowers 19:41, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Golf2010.jpg[edit]

TinEye found a very similar image at [22], and the "photograph"-type border matches the style found on the official web site. Seems highly likely that's where the image came from. LtPowers 20:22, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Mud Treatment - Cancun Palace Spa.jpg[edit]

TinEye didn't find any matches, nor did I find anything on the web site, but this is obviously a promotional image. Even if it wasn't, the lady in the picture violates our policy against identifiable people. LtPowers 20:22, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Apple Valley skyline.JPG[edit]

Unless User:Banana1 is Minnesota Public Radio's Steve Mullis, this is a copyvio from [23] (second picture). LtPowers 20:22, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Monkeys at the Minnesota Zoo.jpg[edit]

Another one from User:Banana1. This image is all over the net (usually with a caption about "hot monkey sex"). Highly unlikely to be in the public domain. LtPowers 20:22, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:MSP Terminal Map.jpg[edit]

Another one from User:Banana1. Found at http://www.allairports.net/msp/msp-airport-terminal-map.htm -- it's obvious this user has a tenuous grasp of copyright and I think all of his/her images need to be reviewed by a second set of eyes. I've nominated the obvious ones for deletion here but there are a couple that I have to wonder about. LtPowers 20:22, 23 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Pratunam market day.jpg[edit]

Non-commercial, no-derivatives license on Flickr. LtPowers 15:04, 26 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Img 0369.jpg[edit]

Duplicate of Image:Molino sabandia.jpg, which has a better filename and a filled-out information template. LtPowers 15:04, 26 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Galapagos Tortoise in San Cristobal Island.jpg[edit]

The linked web site's copyright page is here, and I can't find any mention of GFDL or CC licensing. And I'm not about to go trolling through his entire archive looking for the specific picture to see if it's got a special licensing notice on it or not. LtPowers 15:04, 26 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Nkob-Morocco-5.jpg[edit]

Recognizable people. LtPowers 15:17, 26 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:EastMatunuck1.JPG[edit]

  • also Image:Em2.jpg, reduced-resolution version of the same file (looks like someone didn't know how to use thumbnails).

Copyvios from http://www.riparks.com/eastmatunuck.htm . LtPowers 15:41, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Em.jpg[edit]

Same user (and location) as EastMatunuck1.JPG above. Copyvio from http://blog.liladelman.com/2008/11/kayaking-euphoria.html .

(An identical image was also uploaded as Image:Images-1.jpg, but there was already a different file at that filename (which is so small as to be theoretically useless, but it is used on en:Yellow Springs). I've speedily reverted to the old file since only Image:Em.jpg is used on East Matunuck.)

-- LtPowers 15:41, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:3669735.jpg[edit]

The trifecta from User:Charleve carey. User probably had good motives of improving the en:East Matunuck article, but good motives are no excuse for copyvios. http://www.visitusa.com/rhodeisland/photos/rhodeisland-east-matunuck.htm . -- LtPowers 15:41, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Map.JPG[edit]

Duplicate of Image:Green Route Trek Map.JPG, which has a better filename. They both look like copyvios to me, but I can't prove it; anyone know what these places are a map of? LtPowers 15:47, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:LongJi Map.jpg[edit]

It does make it easier to detect copyvios when they link right to the site on the description page -- but then you have the question of why they do it. LtPowers 08:50, 29 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Tango 3.JPG[edit]

All right, I'll admit I can't find proof that this is a copyvio, but come on -- a painting? How likely is it that Maria Eugenia González gave permission for User:Gauchogeert to license this image as CC-by-sa 3.0? LtPowers 15:13, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Perito Moreno (2005-01-01).jpg[edit]

Non-commercial license on Flickr. Yes, User:Tiagox2 got the image from :en:wikitravel, but it had no explicit copyright information on the image description page. Tiagox2 assumed it was licensed appropriately at the time it was uploaded, which is our standard practice, but this case illustrates the dangers of doing so. I would appreciate a bit more diligence from our long-time contributors. LtPowers 15:13, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

Image:Disneyworld castle.JPG[edit]

The original image was deleted on Wikipedia because the uploader specified that his images could only be used on Wikipedia. That's against Wikipedia's rules, but even if we aren't bound by the same rules, we are (arguably) bound by his request that only Wikipedia use them. Since we are not Wikipedia, we should delete this image. commons:File:Cinderella Castle.jpg is a better image of the castle that I will be uploading shortly; it should replace this one nicely in the articles where it is used. LtPowers 16:57, 30 July 2010 (EDT)

  • Delete It's nice to honor others' requests, and if we have a better photo, there is no reason why we need to keep this. 72.92.209.227 20:52, 18 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Deleted. – D. Guillaime 21:00, 20 September 2010 (EDT)

Image:Palolem green island sunset.jpg[edit]

Non-commercial license on Flickr. Why the uploader picked "dual-gfdl-CC-by-sa-any" is beyond me. LtPowers 15:51, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

Keep - I am the creator of this image and have re-licensed it. Please remove VFD template. --Dazzla 04:56, 10 August 2010 (EDT)

  • Kept after correcting license tag to cc-by-sa-2.0. Dazzla, thank you for the license clarification. – D. Guillaime 21:18, 20 September 2010 (EDT)

Image:KULLU Manali.jpg[edit]

The provided link does not link to this image on Flickr. And Flickr images are never licensed dual-GFDL-cc-by-sa-all. I can't verify the copyright status of this image, so we should delete it unless someone can find the original source. LtPowers 19:11, 7 August 2010 (EDT)

Found it. Licensed as CC-by-nc-sa-2.0, so deleting from here. It's not used on any pages on :en. -- D. Guillaime 22:27, 9 August 2010 (EDT)
  • Kept. LtPowers 15:39, 20 November 2010 (EST)

Image:Manali Mountains.jpg[edit]

Same uploader as above. This one has a functional link, but the image on Flickr is licensed for non-commercial use only. The uploader also put her own username as the photographer. Something is seriously wrong here. I left a message for her a couple of weeks ago but received no response. LtPowers 19:15, 7 August 2010 (EDT)

Zapped as copyvio as well. Likewise, not in use on :en. -- D. Guillaime 22:31, 9 August 2010 (EDT)
Re-uploaded with correct meta data and appropriate license, same with Plolem photo above. --Dazzla 05:41, 10 August 2010 (EDT)

Image:essen_zollverein__061017_014_30.jpg[edit]

photo is not according to German law "Freedom of Panorama" - may not be published HJWBoShared 17:17, 18 August 2010 (EDT)

Please explain. Germany has a very broad freedom of panorama law — heck, they're the ones who coined the term panoramafreiheit — that allows pictures of both artworks and architecture taken from public places. See commons:COM:FOP#Germany. This message applies as well to the several nominations below this one. LtPowers 08:47, 19 August 2010 (EDT)
That's a long story. For short, the problem is the definition of public space. The legislators did not define it exactly. The ground of "Zollverein" is private poperty, but there is no fence arount it, there is unlimited entrance, there is no signboard telling you about any limits. Is that public space? Till now nost people would have said yes and so I did when I made this phostos last year. All 6 photos are made on the ground of Zollverein foundation. Now the supreme courd has judged that the owner of a ground may limit the right of making photos and thats exactly what the zollverein foundation did. You should know also that there is just an ongoing process in Germany that some influecial politicans like to limit the act of "Panoramafreiheit" in case of commercial use und the assossiation of jounalists fights for freedom of use. So I thing there will some judgments follow and who will win at last is still open. But fact is I have not the money to employ an army of advocates to fight for my right if the wrong side should win. So I prefer to delete the 6 photos and replace them with some which are absolutely legal in ervery case. Some I alrady uploaded. HJWBoShared 12:11, 21 August 2010 (EDT)
Ah, what a pain. I will support your deletion request, as we do not wish to force you to be a test case for this change in legal interpretation. Thanks for taking the time to explain. LtPowers 21:28, 22 August 2010 (EDT)
