Image uploads[edit]

Hi, I notice all the images you have uploaded are "licensed" simply as as "some website", this is unfortunately not enough for us to keep the images. Due to copyright law we have to be carefull not to infringe on peoples copyright. Since these images all seem to be from various websites we must asume they are copyrighted. They might still be usable under a "fair use" claim, please read Wikipedia:Fair use carefully (especialy the Policy section) to see Wikipedia's policy on fair use and what you need to do to make the images comply with this policy.

There are not quite so many "hoops" to jump though if you upload free licensed images, but source and an apropriate copyright tag is always a minimum requirement.

If something is unclear feel free to leave a question on my talk page. --Sherool (talk) 21:24, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Source[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Katie_holmes50.jpg and Image:Dawson4.jpg. However, you forgot to include source information. Please go back and add these as soon as possible. Otherwise, these images will be deleted after a week. Thanks. --Yamla 22:51, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

You still have not provided source information for these images. Please do so today or we will have to remove them. --Yamla 16:10, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Invalid source[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Photo2_big.jpg. Unfortunately, the source information you provided appears incorrect. Please go back and correct the source information. Also, please check to ensure the image was released to the public domain, or ask someone for help determining the copyright status. Thanks. --Yamla 22:55, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Image:Nicole richie26.jpg[edit]

You can't use this pic: Image:Nicole richie26.jpg here at wikiepdia, pictures from Wire Image are not allowed here to use in the articles.--Hotwiki 06:57, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Replacing public domain images with fair use images[edit]

Please do not replace public domain images (on articles such as Mariah Carey and Jessica Biel) with copyrighted "fair use" images, as it is impossible to claim fair use on them when free alternatives have been located. See Wikipedia:Fair use for more details. Also, please add source and copyright information for all of the images you have uploaded, or they will be deleted. Thanks.

Image copyright problem RE: Image:Americanmusiq.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Americanmusiq.jpg. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law. We need you to specify two things on the image description page:

  • The copyright holder, and
  • The copyright status

The copyright holder is usually the creator. If the creator was paid to make this image, then their employer may be the copyright holder. If several people collaborated, then there may be more than one copyright holder. If you created this image, then you are the copyright holder.

Because of the large number of images on Wikipedia, we've sorted them using image copyright tags. Just find the right tag corresponding to the copyright status of this image, and paste it onto the image description page like this: {{TAGHERE}}.

There are 3 basic ways to licence an image on Wikipedia:

  • The copyright holder gets the best protection of his work by licencing their work under an open content license like the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike licence. If you have the express permission of the copyright holder to licence their work under the above licence, use the image copyright tag: {{cc-by-sa-2.5}}. The GNU Free Documentation License is another choice for licencing one's work. Again, if you have the express permission of the copyright holder, use the tag: {{GFDL}}.
  • The copyright holder can also release his work into the public domain, see here for images released into the public domain.
    • Images from certain sources are automatically release into the Public Domain. This is true for most governments like the federal United States government. (See here for images from the government of the USA and here for other governments) However not all governments release their work into the public domain, such as the UK government (See here for images from the UK government). Non-free licence governments are listed here.
  • Also, in some cases, an image is copyrighted but allowed on Wikipedia because of Fair Use. To see if this image qualifies and then how to tag it, see Wikipedia:Fair use.

For any other sources of for more information see Wikipedia:Image copyright tags. Please remember that if you don't tag your images, they will be deleted.

P.S. If you have uploaded other images without including copyright tags, please go back and tag them. Also, please tag all images that you upload in the future.

If you have any questions, just leave a message on my talk page. Thanks again. Extraordinary Machine 18:18, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Problems with Images[edit]

You are obviously having problems understanding copyright with regard to images. If you have any specific questions that the above links aren't able to answer, please feel free to ask me or another editor. Until you have a good understanding, please refrain from adding any more images to Wikipedia. Thanks. --Yamla 20:43, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
