How could a local chapter assist the copyright donation process?
Hi mailer diablo,
My name is Liang, and I am a board member from Wikimedia Taiwan. We are encountering an issue with OTRS now. Here's the story-- There is a family in our city who get in touch with our chapter, they meet us in person and express that their passed away father left a Taiwanese-Mandarin Dictionary. Their father authorize the dictionary to be printed in paper by a local publisher in 2000 here, and now the copyright is back to the family. Few weeks ago the family contacted Reke, our secretariat of the chapter, to express they want their father's work to be released on Wikimedia projects. They wish to make the work as accessible as possible.
This is a really exciting news for us in the chapter. There are programmer who is working on the modification of the printing files to Wiki source, and there are also some culture events ideas are brainstormed for demonstrating the way to use the dictionary. However, we are not quite sure how to handle this properly with the OTRS process.
Since the members in the family are all elders, it's highly difficult for them to use email to conduct the OTRS process. In the consent email template on Wikicommons, we found the following description: "If you are releasing a work that is not available online, you may be required to provide proof of your identity. If you are releasing a work where you are acting on the copyright holder's behalf, you may be required to provide proof of authorization to work on the copyright holder's behalf." Looks like we can provide some documents to the OTRS team without their direct email, is it correct? If so, then could you give us some previous cases or the paper consent template to show us what kind of "useful proofs" we should provide to the OTRS team.
Thank you for your patience and we are looking for your feedback.

Will you provide an adequate reason for why you deleted the Traditonal Britian Group in 2006? Are you a member?
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
