Administrator instructions

Shortcuts:

This page is for listing and discussing files that are marked as available under a free license or public domain, but have disputed source or licensing information. Files are listed here for 7 days before they are processed. Files that are tagged with a non-free template should not be listed here.

To list texts with copyright issues, please use WP:Copyright problems.

Instructions[edit]

Before listing, remember that files which are already marked unfree and used under fair use should not be listed here.

To list a file on this page:

I
Edit the file page.

Add {{puf|date=6 May 2015}} to the file page.

II
Create its PUF subsection.

Follow this edit link and list the file using {{subst:puf2|image=File_name.ext|reason=reason}} ~~~~ (remember to exclude the File: prefix).

III
Give due notice.

Inform the uploader by adding a message to their talk page using {{subst:fdw-puf|File_name.ext}} ~~~~

If the image is in use, also consider adding {{pufc|File_name.ext|date=6 May 2015}} to the caption(s), or adding a notice to the article talk pages. Consider also notifying relevant WikiProjects of the discussion.

Remember to replace "File_name.ext" with the name of the file

Unlike Wikipedia:Files for deletion the primary purpose of this page is to ascertain the source and/or copyright status of a file. Therefore it is not specifically a vote to keep or delete but a forum for the exploration of the copyright status/source of a file and contributions should not be added solely in those terms.

Listings should be processed by an administrator after being listed for 7 days. Files that are accepted following this 7-day period should have {{oldpuffull}} added to the file talk page. If no objection to the file's deletion is raised, or no proof that the file is indeed free is provided, the file may be deleted without further notice after the 7-day period.

Note: Files can be unlisted immediately if they are indisputably in the public domain or verifiably licensed under an indisputably free license (GFDL, CC-BY-SA, etc.—see Wikipedia:File copyright tags for more on these).

Speedy deletion[edit]

Blatant copyright violations or files missing source or license information may be "speedied"

If a file is unquestionably copied from another website and no assertion of permission or fair use is made, the file may be speedy deleted under criterion F9 (formerly I9). Such files do not need to be listed here. Please tag the file with {{subst:db-f9|url=source URL}} and warn the user with {{db-copyvio-notice}}.

If a file is missing source, evidence of permission, or license information, place either use:

or

on the description page to put the file in the appropriate category. After being tagged for 7 days, the file will be eligible for speedy deletion per criterion 4 or criterion 11 for images/media.

Please also notify the uploader so they get a chance to fix the problem(s). The templates {{subst:File source|File:file name}} and {{image copyright}} are made for this purpose, but feel free to write a message of your own. It is not necessary to warn the uploader about every individual file if they have uploaded several of such files, but at least one message telling them that files without source/license will be deleted should be given to each user.

If a file is indisputably non-free, and its possible use can comply with our non-free content policy, be bold and retag it as a non-free file using a non-free image tag instead of taking it to this page.

Please note that this page is not for disputing the fair use of already non-free media, but for the disputing if a freely licensed file really is free. Please take queries of this nature to Files for deletion or Non-free content review An archiving system was implemented July 2007. For older discussions, see the history pages. For all discussions from July 3, 2007 forward, see the Archive.

Holding cell[edit]

These files have been listed for at least 7 days. Discussions should be closed following the steps here. Files that have been determined to be acceptable may be removed from this page.

  • There's probably no copyright notice on the back because it's been tampered with. There's no date of first publication and no indication that first publication did not include a copyright notice. Herostratus (talk) 22:15, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't understand how the file has been "tampered with". The NBC release is dated. Many of these photo come from working news environments and the releases have been cut and re-pasted.We hope (talk) 22:20, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
@Herostratus:, do you have any evidence the photo *was* copyrighted? If not, I would assume the original status notification is correct, AGF. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 01:37, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

File:SkerryNewcastle.JPG (delete | talk | history | logs).
  • Description says it's "from Skerry's College 80th anniversary yearbook" but image is tagged as PD-self. While the tag is clearly inaccurate, the original source is not clear enough to determine that the image is free. (ESkog)(Talk) 17:58, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
  • The following images are in the same boat and they should all be considered together:

File:TeenageRadioPioneers-1917.jpg[edit]

File:TeenageRadioPioneers-1917.jpg (delete | talk | history | logs).
  • At File:Teenage Radio Pioneers 1917.jpeg, which is a duplicate of this file, the uploader wrote that 'I wish to contest deletion of this "family photo," which has circulated in my family for nearly 100 years. Michael and Frank Lyons are my great-uncles.' This suggests that the photograph is a family photographs. Family photographs are typically unpublished, so the copyright tag which states that the photograph was published before 1923 might not be correct. Stefan2 (talk) 21:51, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Today is May 6 2015. Put new nominations in Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files/2015 May 6 -- (new nomination)

If the current date's page has been started without the header, apply {{subst:puf log}} to the top of the day's page.

Please ensure "===May 6===" is at the very top of the new page so that internal page links from the main Possibly unfree files page (the one you're on now) work.
