Image contributions[edit]

I noticed you have contributed 2 images from PlasmaChem under free licences. I presume this means you work for PlasmaChem and have permission to release these images under free licences. Could you kindly e-mail WP:OTRS to confirm this? Alternatively, if you were to make it clear on the PlasmaChem website that these images are released under the licenses you have specified here.

Hi Antipoff,
Thanks for contributing images to Wikipedia, but unfortunately we can't accept images which aren't clearly available under free licences. The two images from PlasmaChem are copyrighted and there is no evidence of a free license on their website, so they are apparently not eligible for Wikipedia. Please let me know if this is inaccurate.
That being said, there are a number of sources for free-licence scientific images. Some I am aware of are PLoS [1], BioMed Central [2], Hindawi [3], and Environmental Health Perspectives[4]. It should be okay to copy images from any of these.
I've copied the standard message for image permissions below. Please feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you have any other questions about image permissions. Antony-22 (talk) 18:17, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:CdTe PlasmaChem spectra.gif and File:CdTe quantum dots plasmachem.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
