Image copyright problem with Image:Deancrashinto.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Deancrashinto.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Polly (Parrot) 22:55, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Copyright problems[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Hello. Concerning your contribution, Dean Karr, please note that Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text or images obtained from other web sites or printed material, without the permission of the author(s). This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0440061/bio. As a copyright violation, Dean Karr appears to qualify for deletion under the speedy deletion criteria. Dean Karr has been tagged for deletion, and may have been deleted by the time you see this message.

If you believe that the article or image is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) then you should do one of the following:

  • If you have permission from the author, leave a message explaining the details at Talk:Dean Karr and send an email with the message to "permissions-en (at) wikimedia (dot) org". See Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for instructions.
  • If a note on the original website states that re-use is permitted under the GFDL or released into the public domain leave a note at Talk:Dean Karr with a link to where we can find that note.
  • If you own the copyright to the material: send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en(at)wikimedia(dot)org or a postal message to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the GFDL, and note that you have done so on Talk:Dean Karr.

However, for textual content, you may simply consider rewriting the content in your own words. Thank you. --Finngall talk 04:56, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

An article that you have been involved in editing, Dean Karr, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dean Karr. Thank you. --Finngall talk 20:37, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: Thank you and Help Me[edit]

Per Dean Karr, the notability is borderline due to his short credits list on imdb; I'd say just try to write the bio as best you can, and include links to news articles that talk about him- if, for example, he's been interviewed by a newspaper. That will help satisfy the requirement of notability (WP:N). JeremyMcCracken (talk) (contribs) 20:19, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Re:Dean Karr[edit]

It's definitely an improvement, but there's a problem- you didn't cite the source of it. See WP:CITE. I'm assuming you got it from a website, so be sure to include that. To survive AfD you'd still want to demonstrate some press coverage. JeremyMcCracken (talk) (contribs) 20:55, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

It will just be up to the community to determine if he's notable. I think there's probably enough for the article to survive the AfD. Also, keep in mind that print sources can be cited- see WP:Citing sources/example style. JeremyMcCracken (talk) (contribs) 04:40, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:CrashIntoMe.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:CrashIntoMe.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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Shell babelfish 07:30, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:DaughtryVideoShoot.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:DaughtryVideoShoot.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Shell babelfish 07:30, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Slugfest.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Slugfest.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Shell babelfish 07:32, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: needin more help[edit]

In regards to images, they're either copyrighted or not. If they are copyrighted, Wikipedia can only use them if the fall into "Fair use", which legally means they can be reproduced even though they're copyrighted. The images in question are borderline usable, since the article is about Dean, not the videos/songs that the captures come from. For the video stills, you haven't provided a rationale for fair use at all, so you'll need to do that by editing the image page. For the slugfest pic, it looks like you've added criteria, but someone thinks it's not good enough. Take a look at WP:NFCC and try to put fair use criteria into the images.

Image source problem with Image:324499382_l.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:324499382_l.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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 03:06, 5 December 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. –Dream out loud (talk) 03:06, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:DeanKarr.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:DeanKarr.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Eeekster (talk) 04:45, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Help with images[edit]

Greetings, Rikkisixx. I'm sorry to see you've been having a lot of trouble with uploading images of Dean Karr. I'm a local image expert here, and I was hoping I could help.

Wikipedia prides itself on being a free content encyclopedia. Because of that, we only accept photographs that have been released under a "free license": that's a license that allows anyone (not just Wikipedia) to reuse the image for any purpose, include modifications and commercial uses. If the copyright holder wants to allow Wikipedia to use the image, but doesn't want to allow anyone else to, then I'm afraid we can't use it. (It can be frustrating, but it's our policy.) If, on the other hand, the photographer is willing to release the photo under a free license (such as the {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} license), then we can use it, and there won't be any further problems. I can help with this, but only if the photographer is willing to do this. Do you know if he is? Just let me know, and I'll help. All the best, – Quadell (talk) 13:52, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, yes, I know the photographer personally, his work has been used on Wikipedia before, he said it was fine, I don't know what it is that you need.

We noticed though that when you edited Dean Karr, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Director, Everlast and MVPA (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
