License tagging for Image:Cahill Butterfly Map.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cahill Butterfly Map.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 04:05, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

deleted image[edit]

Hi there, I didn't delete the image, I just nominated it for deletion. Anyways you should not restore it unless you can resolve the underlying copyright issue. The problem is that normally a library doesn't own the copyright to the contents of papers it houses. Who took the photo? That person is the owner of the copyright. Just because the library owns the physical copy of the photo does not mean it can release the rights for using the photo. If you do not have permission from the copyright owner, it is impermissible to include the photo here. Because Cahill lived so long ago, we should be able to find a picture of him that is dated before 1923, which would mean that its copyright has expired. Hopefully this clears things up.

I would love for the image to be on Wikipedia, however, it is a copyright violation to have it posted. Please provide more information on the copyright status of the image. The library the image came from should be able to help you out. If the library holds the copyright , try requesting permiissin to use the image under a free license (See WP:COPYREQ). There is a good possibility the image is in the public domain and the library would possibly know. I deleted the image again. Please do not repost the image until copyright issues are resolved. -Regards Nv8200p talk 12:56, 12 February 2008 (UTC)


2008-02-12 Reply by Esperanto41 to CalliopeJen1 and NV8200p:


This is not a photo worthy of copyright quicksand. It is of a deceased and nearly forgotten architect and cartographer. The picture has no ID as to date (1930s?) or photographer, who is likely as long dead as his subject If some copyright claimant (and who the hell would that be??) wishes to step forward and demand its removal from Wikipedia, then there would be reason to examine the matter. Meanwhile, of course, I derive no commercial or monetary benefit from the image; this is strictly an academic, fair-usage posting. (Which will now go onto my own website.)

As you see, I notified the maze of libraries at UC Berkeley about my use of some Cahill materials, providing an opportunity for any objections to be raised; none were. To engage in a prolonged copyright search in that bureaucracy would be a profound waste of their time and mine on a makework triviality.

I regret and resent the uncalled-for meddling by both of you in a subject you have no interest in. You have degraded a worthwhile Wikipedia page for no better reason than legaloid dog-in-the-mangerism.

I also resent the fork-tongued notion that Jen did not delete the picture; only requested someone else do it. Oh, please.

The library does not own the copyright to the photo and so cannot give permission for its use. Wikipedia does not allow the inclusion of copyrighted photos solely on the basis that no one is likely to claim copyright. Wikipedia's goal is to be a resource for free information that is available even for reuse (including commercial reuse) by others, with no copyright concerns. We choose not to use images upt to the bounds of fair use, primarily because of our free content mission and only secondarily because of any possible liability concerns. Occasional exceptions can be made on Wikipedia to allow the inclusion of historic copyrighted materials, but this is possible only when it is shown that there are no public-domain alternatives. What have you done to investigate the existence of pre-1923 photos of Cahill? (That allows for photos in the first 56 years of his life.) Much of his most important work was done before 1923, so one would think that a photo would be available. Calliopejen1 (talk) 21:47, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Hi, could you please amend your signature to contain at least one internal link to either your userpage of your talk page in accordance with WP:SIG#Internal links? This will also mean the bot will leave you alone instead of thinking it has to sign all your posts for you! Thanks, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 03:02, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

OK, testing, testing, let's see if this works. Esperanto41 (talk) 17:38, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
