Tobermore Reversions[edit]

I reverted your changes to the Tobermore article due to the fact it was wierd and due to the fact you could of related the links witb the proper article on James IInd instead of getting rid of it all together. Mabuska

After reading your explanation i have no argument with your reasons for getting rid of the link. I just thought it was weird a link being removed. Mabuska 20:49, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Philately WikiProject[edit]

I noticed your interest in philately after seeing a stamp image you uploaded. If you are an active editor and philatelist you should be aware of the Philately WikiProject and consider joining, especially if you can contribute. I wonder if the image you uploaded can really be in the Public Domain. Do you actually know the copyright law for stamps of Nicaragua? Just because you scanned it does and you put a PD tag on it does not mean it is in fact PD. Cheers ww2censor 18:02, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

I appreciate your concern. Prior to 1974, Nicaragua was essentially a client state of the U.S. and generally followed its laws, including copyright. This would place their postage images in the public domain, although I don't have actual documentation to support it. I note that currency of Nicaragua is also displayed in the Wikipedia. J. Peterka 21:10, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
I really don't know what you mean by "Nicaragua was essentially a client state of the U.S. and generally followed its laws, including copyright" as it is an independent republic so how can you suggest US law prevails. As you say you have no documentation to support that and as you know Wikipedia does not rely on say so. Maybe their law is based on US law, but unless we know for sure, we cannot assume. Regarding the currency being shown does not mean that is licensed correctly either. I just don't know, that is why I voiced concern. I would just love to know the real situation because few countries' stamps are known to be PD unless we have some sort of reference or confirmation from a reliable source, such as a philatelic bureau or government department. Thanks ww2censor 17:00, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
The United States and International Copyright article indicates that, as of 1947, the United States and Nicaragua adhered to the Buenos Aires convention of 1910. I have no reason to believe this changed between 1947 and 1978, and so rely upon this source for the PD-stamp designation.
Thanks, I will post that link to the commons stamp copyright page and see if people think that covers us. Good work and well done. ww2censor 18:59, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Anastasio Somoza Garcia.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Anastasio Somoza Garcia.JPG. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --11:20, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

I see no need to further justify the image that was deleted. Lawyers and robots rule. So be it. J. Peterka (talk) 22:56, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

How can someone delete an image somebody else uploaded? What sort of authority does he have to decide what to leave and what to elliminate? It seems to me lije a sort of imposition on free expresion! Ralacayo (talk) 07:40, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Fruto Chamorro Pérez.JPG[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Fruto Chamorro Pérez.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 13:54, 5 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7.
