Olympiacos women's volleyball and Olympiacos Women's Water Polo Team image issue[edit]

Hi folks,

I really don't understand how using Olympiacos emblem in two official Olympiacos departments fails the non-free image policy as Werieth has informed me with his post. This particular image that has been removed is used in all Olympiacos' departments such as Olympiacos S.C. and Olympiacos Water Polo Club. The usage of a club's emblem for its official departments is something very common and standard for the Wikipedia pages. I really can't undestand how using this image for particular departments violates the non-free image policy, while using it for others doesn't. It really doesn't make any sense whatsoever. And even if it does violate the above-mentioned policy for some inexplicable reason, what really matters is what can we do to address and solve this issue. So, I defer to your expertise and I hope you'll take the necessary steps to resolve it. Thanking you in advance, Gtrbolivar (talk) 15:45, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Heritage Malta question[edit]

Some days ago I asked "Is not the logo of Heritage Malta too simple for a copyright?" here. Today I wanted to check the answers and could not find the question neither at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions nor at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions/Archive/2013/December. Shouldn't it have been archived? Wikipedia:Media copyright questions still appears at a search --Error (talk) 00:45, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

It looks like the archive bot removed the sections from the main page [1] but forgot to copy them to the archive. -- Asclepias (talk) 01:08, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I've reverted the bot edit, and the thread concerned is Wikipedia:Media copyright questions#Is not the logo of Heritage Malta too simple for a copyright? --Redrose64 (talk) 01:19, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! --Error (talk) 01:27, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
It's been archived properly this time, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions/Archive/2013/December#Is not the logo of Heritage Malta too simple for a copyright? --Redrose64 (talk) 17:12, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Do you have a story of an "orphan work" that could not be used in Wikimedia?[edit]

The U.S. Copyright Office is asking for commentary on possible rules about "orphan works." These are works whose copyright owners cannot be identified or cannot be located, and therefore permission cannot be obtained to use the works. Example: a photo of a deceased notable person, taken by an unknown photographer, of no obvious cash value, held by the family, that would have been useful to illustrate an article. Our wiki chapter is trying to give examples to copyright office, to help get rules that would work for Wikimedia. We'd welcome specific tragic stories at the village pump. -- econterms (talk) 07:55, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Updating Company's logo question[edit]

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to update a company's logo but each time I try upload I am greeted with 'Upload warning - The XML in the uploaded file could not be parsed.' Am I doing this incorrectly? The file type is an accepted type so i'm stumped. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiairport (talkcontribs) 03:57, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

What type of file is it? --Orange Mike | Talk 02:10, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
