Orphaned non-free image File:Dr. Karel Styblo.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Dr. Karel Styblo.jpg. 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 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.

Proposed deletion of Karel Styblo[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Karel Styblo has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Second notice[edit]

You were notified above of Wikipedia's copyright policies, yet recreated Karel Styblo, saying it was taken directly from the subject's CV. That would also be a copyvio. Please see WP:V, WP:NN, and if you need help creating an article in your own words based on reliable sources that meet notability, you can propose text at Talk:Karel Styblo.

I am trying to celebrate the work of public health hero and tuberculosis control pioneer Karel Styblo. Although as a scientist he was extensively published, there is very little information published about him biographically, with the exception of a handful of obituaries, appreciations, and a fragment of a photo and CV from the 1980s. There is no one to give permission to use his photo, and as it was originally intended for use in a scientific program he was speaking at, it seemed reasonable that he provided it for publicity purposes. This seems to constitute fair use, and as it was presented in the pre-internet era, is one of a very few photos available of him. The tributes and appreciations referenced can be re-worked; can this content be made available again for this purpose? As far as the CV is concerned, the subject is deceased, doesn't that obviate the issue of copyright of this particular resource? Thanks for your help. -- Anderton (talk) 23:14, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Copyright continues for many years after an author's death. As to the image, you are probably OK claiming fair use. As to the CV, Wikipedia is not for CVs. Please use the CV to create a proper article in your own words. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 23:29, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
I have an idea, as the person who put in for the latest deletion. Anderton, I want you to go check out Help:Userspace draft for something you can do to keep the CV up in a form that you can a) work with, b) reshape, and c) not have any issues with the potential of finding your work promptly deleted. Also, given Dr. Styblo's work in medicine et cetera, the notability seems apparent, but keep in mind that you still have to prove it, and do so reliably - we don't work off of "seems legit" here. Between the material you have and some research, I'm confident you'll be able to put something together that we can accept in such a way you don't find it getting wiped off of Wikipedia again - but believe me, it takes a bit of work. =) Good luck. --Dennis The Tiger (Rawr and stuff) 02:30, 26 March 2012 (UTC)


I would like to ask that the deleted page on Karel Styblo be placed up on Wikipedia again. I have the authors permission to use his work, and have added additional content of my own. Here is the proof of permission. Thank you! --- We are more than happy to give you permission. Thanks for promoting and spreading the word on a great man that helped the world become a better place.

Information... I would like to use parts of your Karel Styblo writeup for a Wikipedia entry on this wonderful man. May I please have permission to do so? Thanks for considering. John Anderton Anderton (talk) 12:34, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

The information you have posted here is not sufficient for a copyright release. The instructions for how to go about doing that are listed on your page, above, at User talk:Anderton#Copyright problems with Karel Styblo. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 13:08, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
In fact copyright release is somewhat irrelevant. The copyright material simply was not appropriate for Wikipedia. By the time a proper article has been written, it will cease to be a copyvio. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:12, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
