License tagging for File:Bruce Ferber.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Bruce Ferber.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Bruce Ferber.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Bruce Ferber.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for 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 take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

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}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File 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 created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. January (talk) 14:47, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

I wrote the wikipedia page for Bruce Ferber, a screenwriter who I admire a great deal. Everything was accepted and I asked for an image and he gave me one and he submitted his permission at least twice to you. He has affirmed that he is the owner of the photo and copied me to the email he has sent you twice. There is still a warning about the photo and that it will be taken down on Monday if no proof is offered. I went through all the steps as you asked, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Can you help?

Yes, we have received the email. I am handling it now, please check your email inbox in a little while.
There was no problem, we just happen to be a little backlogged on the email side of things. My apologies. ~ Matthewrbowker Make a comment! 02:15, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
