Special 301 Report[edit]

Wikipedia requires sources for "any material challenged or likely to be challenged, and for all quotations" (see Citing sources and Verifiability), which is the principle I use when inserting new information. I'm sorry if this offends you, and for your benefit I will add sources to many of the additions I made before I reinstate them.

Also, thank you for fixing the quotations. I have been unable to locate a copy of the original text online (Section 1302 of the 1988 Act), and until someone locates one the secondary source will suffice. -- AaronDLJ (talk) 14 August 2011 —Preceding undated comment added 22:04, 14 August 2011 (UTC).

Areopagitica[edit]

In your good-faith edit, your subsitution of "freedom of speech and expression" may be anachronistic and unduly expansive imho: Areopagitica is nearly entirely on the right to unlicensed printing and on the importance of the preservation of books, even heretical books. Does such a description properly belong in the introduction to the article? (I haven't read Areopagitica in the last few months, so pardon me if my memory is faulty.) Best regards, Kiefer.Wolfowitz (talk) 23:17, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi there, I changes what was //freedom of speech|free expression// to //freedom of speech|freedom of speech and expression// . "Free expression” was a bit odd, and it linked to freedom of speech. The Freedom of speech article contains an important reference to the areopagitica and the advancement of the arguments on freedom of speech (more accurately the freedom of expression):
One of the earliest Western defences of freedom of expression is Areopagitica (1644) by English poet and political writer John Milton. Milton wrote in reaction to an attempt by the English republican parliament to prevent "seditious, unreliable, unreasonable and unlicensed pamphlets". Milton advanced a number of arguments in defence of freedom of speech. First, he argued that a nation's unity is created through blending individual differences rather than imposing homogeneity from above; that the ability to explore the fullest range of ideas on a given issue was essential to any learning process and truth cannot be arrived upon unless all points of view are first considered; and that by considering free thought, censorship acts to the detriment of material progress.
Unfortunately that section is not referenced (its very old). I see if I can find a reference for the Areopagitica influence on the freedom of speech argument. so we can update both articles.
Re "right to unlicensed printing", if you look at the copyright and UK copyright law article it explains the link between censorship, early printing and copyright.--SasiSasi (talk) 19:46, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind reply. I don't have time to help out immediately, but I shall try to look in the future. Kiefer.Wolfowitz (talk) 19:50, 12 March 2010 (UTC)


File copyright problem with File:All rights reserved.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:All rights reserved.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. FASTILYsock(TALK) 03:18, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Should be public domain.--SasiSasi (talk) 10:12, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. -- RP459 Talk/Contributions 20:52, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

I second this user suggestion. You have made some very MAJOR revisions to some key articles, and it is particularly UN-friendly to the Wiki community to do so without explanation. You should add BOTH the edit summary AND an addition to the discussion page for the more major changes, such as huge deletions you seem to have done. (I am not commenting on revision quality, only Wiki-etiquette.) I have found many of your revisions frustratingly hard to find and evaluate. --gobears87 (talk) 11:02, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Image copyright question[edit]

I noticed that you recently uploaded File:Bidder Street.jpg and File:Bidder Street 2.jpg with {{PD-US}}, but both of them are listed as 1924 dates, so even if they were published in 1924 (which the sources aren't clear about) they're not in the public domain for their age. Is there some other reason these photographs are listed as being PD? VernoWhitney (talk) 18:22, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

My mistake, I put them under the US license, but got the dates mixed up - needs to be published before 1923

This image is in the public domain in the United States. In most cases, this means that it was first published prior to January 1, 1923 (see the template documentation for more cases). Other jurisdictions may have other rules, and this image might not be in the public domain outside the United States. See Wikipedia:Public domain and Wikipedia:Copyrights for more details.

I just checked the source again, and its 1924, so they will have to go. Pitty (have to wait for a bit). Can you delete them?--SasiSasi (talk) 18:27, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

I'm not an admin, so I can't delete them, although you should be able to tag them {{db-author}} to get an admin to swing by and remove them. VernoWhitney (talk) 18:32, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
will do--SasiSasi (talk) 18:35, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:35, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Devil's acre DYK[edit]

Hi SasiSasi, I saw your nomination at T:TDYK for Devil's acre. The template wasn't filled in correctly, but I've filled in what I can at the listing. Could you check it out and add appropriate text to the image? Also, in case you're not aware, on Halloween we'll have a scary collection of hooks on the main page and with a title like this there should be a possibility of using this for it. Can you think of a suitable hook? One other thing, should it be Devil's Acre or Devil's acre? If it's the first the article should be moved. It's a nice article by the way! Smartse (talk) 23:36, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Many thanks, should be Devil's Acre really, I will move the article. I will add some text to the image. Re scary hooks, I am really not sure, I am not good with hooks, but any alternative suggestions are welcome.--SasiSasi (talk) 09:38, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
No worries. Can you take another look at the nom? Smartse (talk) 23:31, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

January 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from one page into another page. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to make a note in an edit summary at the source page as well. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you.

Plagiarism[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. It seems that you may have added public domain content to one or more Wikipedia articles. You are welcome to import appropriate public domain content to articles, but in order to meet the Wikipedia guideline on plagiarism, such content must be fully attributed. This requires not only acknowledging the source, but acknowledging that the source is copied. There are several methods to do this described at Wikipedia:Plagiarism#Public domain sources, including the usage of an attribution template. Please make sure that any public domain content you have already imported is fully attributed. Thank you. (apropos http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Copyright&diff=409361899&oldid=408616763 and discussion on the talk page.)--Elvey (talk) 08:31, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Traditional knowledge and public domain[edit]

Hi there, I noticed the section on TK has been removed. I don't know the ins and outs of this, but I've found some additional sources on this which might help make a more robust section to put back, if that helps, noted on the talk page of Public domain.Jim Killock (talk) 20:05, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Statute of Anne[edit]

Thank you for this article. I've read it with great interest, given that I'm currently preparing an expanded version; could you please explain why you have citations to page 13 of Deazley's work to verify text which is in no way, shape or form, in the source? Ironholds (talk) 10:28, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Having reviewed the article, I've found multiple instances where you've taken text verbatim from copyrighted sources, and some cases where you've rephrased it so simply as to make no difference. Accordingly, I have removed your version. Please explain yourself. Ironholds (talk) 10:33, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

October 2011[edit]

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for violating copyright policy by copying text or images into Wikipedia from another source without verifying permission. You have been previously warned that this is against policy, but have persisted.

Copyright concerns[edit]

The article Copyright law of the United Kingdom has now been blanked and listed for review at the copyright problems board, as it seems that content you added to the article may have copied or closely paraphrased your sources. Unless this content is public domain or compatibly licensed (in which case it needs to be used in compliance with Wikipedia:Plagiarism), we are not able to use sources in this way on Wikipedia. Please review Wikipedia:Copy-paste. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 11:44, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

The articles Copyright and Sex workers' rights are now also blanked, as content you added to these articles copies or closely paraphrases at least one of your sources. They will need to be evaluated for other concerns. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:35, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi, Moonriddengirl (and SasiSasi). FYI - I just reverted this edit to Public domain - an interesting copyvio of sorts, so I thought I'd let you know. The image is GFDL, not PD - licensed! I guess the WP:CP missed it. --Elvey (talk) 00:18, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
