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=27 March 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=27 March 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.

  • The old revision is obviously a copyright violation of Google Maps and needs to be deleted. The uploader claimed that the first revision was own work by the uploader (which it obviously wasn't) and didn't modify the file information page when uploading the second image, so maybe this means that the second image isn't owk work by the uploader either.

File:Doc.jpg[edit]

File:Doc.jpg (delete | talk | history | logs).
  • Overwritten file: five in one. Delete all due to various different problems.
  1. File uploaded by Revolving Bugbear (talk · contribs) and Musha (talk · contribs): the file information page appears to identify this as a fair use image. Delete as it is currently unused.
  2. File uploaded by Arencher (talk · contribs): the only copyright information we have is Family photo, no known copyrights. Family photographs are typically unpublished and often anonymous (it is not known by which family member they were taken) and are therefore usually copyrighted unless at least 120 years old. This picture is probably more recent than so and therefore has to be assumed to be unfree.
  3. File uploaded by Arvindvenkat (talk · contribs), Angusmclellan (talk · contribs) and Finnrind (talk · contribs): Sourced to Personal Collection of Trichy Sankaran and licensed as "GFDL-self". Missing evidence of permission. The fact that the picture appears in Trichy Sankaran's[who?] collection does not automatically mean that Trichy Sankaran[who?] is the copyright holder.
  4. File uploaded by Miserlou (talk · contribs): No source and no licence.
  5. File uploaded by Drwessroberts (talk · contribs): Claimed to be {{PD-USGov}}, but no source has been provided. Stefan2 (talk) 17:14, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

  • The copyright term in Canada is life + 50 years, so this book from the 1930s could easily still be under copyright. It's not currently used in any way which would be covered under fair use. Psychonaut (talk) 22:07, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

    • I can't take screenshots of Google Earth, edit them, and upload them to Wikipedia? I apologize for this. I will remove these images as soon as possible if they do indeed violate the rules. SomeGuyWhoRandomlyEdits (talk) 15:40, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Nope, because most Google imagery is still copyright to someone. If you want to use areial imagery, try and find something like NASA imagery of the region, which would be PD.Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:28, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Image is obviously scanned from an old book. It very likely is PD but we would need some notion of an actual source to know. This picture could be from the 1910s or 1920s. B (talk) 03:03, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

  • This image is on flickr as non-commercial only, but the uploader MedAPT (talk · contribs) seems to be claiming to be one in the same with the flickr user, or, at least, to represent the same organization. She says on the image description page, "Free free to use this photo for educational purposes, as according to the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike Deed", which seems to imply that she does not intend to grant a license that permits any use - even non-educational uses. So I think there's enough question in this license that we would need something more explicit to keep it. B (talk) 21:20, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Footer[edit]

Today is March 27 2015. Put new nominations in Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files/2015 March 27 -- (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 "===March 27===" 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.
