Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Kingofcomedydvd.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Kingofcomedydvd.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 18:52, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: copyrighted images[edit]

I am not sure if you do this often, but removing images first and asking two days later may not be very respectful of other editors' capacities and intentions. Use of a copyrighted image is fair only if the accompanying text strongly requires so. Of the three images you removed, use of at least one (Image:Drnopromo.jpg) was fairly fair, as the importance and impact of that iconic bikini wearing is referred to both in the History and Bikini in popular culture sections. The paranoia about non-free images sometime prevailing notwithstanding, the regular behavior for this type of cleanup goes through a few simple steps - (a) ask/warn the editor who put in the images about the appropriateness of use, may be also on the article talk page; (b) when an appropriate amount of time (ideally five days, like AfDs and IfDs) has passed without a satisfying answer forthcoming, the images in discussion may be removed from the article; (c) if the very existence of the image on Wikipedia seems questionable, then put a semi-speedy deletions tag on the image itself, with a note to the uploader; (d) if use of the image is justified, leave the image alone; if there's too much hassle, take it to IfD; and if the uploader or another editor fails to provide appropriate justification, delete. Thanks... and Happy New Year. Aditya(talkcontribs) 05:17, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

It's not about being nice. It's about mutual respect, assuming good faith... and, most importantly, discussions. That it exactly why we have talk pages (to discuss). That is how differences in opinion are settled. While you unilaterally can declare that If there is no doubt wether or not to remove the image, remove it, and I can, again unilaterally, declare that use of at least one (Image:Drnopromo.jpg) was fairly fair - both of us are actually sticking to our opinions. While both opinions are in accordance with the policies and guidelines, there is ample reason to discuss the matter beyond being nice. There is also ample scope to develop the article and the image description page to solve the matter in a constructive (and additive) way. An encyclopedia with more than 2 million articles, many of them of very high standards, was not built merely by policing, but mostly by developing. By the way, what makes you think that you know the policies more than others? Implying that superiority repeatedly is not too "nice". Right? Aditya(talkcontribs) 14:30, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
10 things is not policy, not even a guideline. It's an essay. The best essay on image copyright, I guess, is still the one created be Megapixie. While useful in understanding how Wikipedia works, essays are hardly quotable as policy. Aditya(talkcontribs) 02:26, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Then talk policies, not experience or essays. And, there are elaborate guidelines about dealing with non-free images, way beyond the scope for the essay. It takes a little time to grasp all that. But a careful reading of the policies and guidelines, coupled with observation of how it's done, will explain the process quite easily. Regards. Aditya(talkcontribs) 03:04, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Pulp fiction.ogg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:Pulp fiction.ogg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJTalk 19:21, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Imdb00.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Imdb00.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. –Dream out loud (talk) 01:26, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Your You Tube Videos[edit]

As you may be aware, YouTube has recently come in for criticism over it's handling of copyrighted works.

I note that you have a number of potentially interesting videos on You Tube that you link to from your user page.

Instead of supporting troubled proprietary sites, Why not support projects that value creative talent and assist in ensuring that a viewing public can enjoy and expand upon it?

Wikimedia Commons is one project that needs creative content (under licensing that lets people enjoy and expand upon it).

It would be much appreciated if you could see if you would consider migrating videos for which you are the copyright owner to 'open' formats like Ogg Theora, and moving them from 'failed' propriatey sites like YouTube to community sites like Wikimedia Commons, under an appropriate license.

Translation request[edit]

Hi. Sorry to bother you, but I've come here because you're listed at Wikipedia:Translators available#Icelandic-to-English, and we need someone who knows the language. Basically, we've got this article listed at WP:PNT, Jóna Kristjana, and we don't know what it means. My instinct says its probably not notable, and the section in the middle appears to be a hymn of some sort. If you have a free minute could you please take a look and give us the gist of it.
