Copyright Status of John Philip Sousa's military march, Semper Fidelis. Sousa wrote this during his youthful era as conductor of the U S Marine Band, The President's Own," in Washington, DC. The original edition for band bears the copyright date of 1888. The manuscript of this march is housed at the University of Illinois. United States Copyright MUSIC law gave it an initial duration of 23 years and an equal 23 year renewal period. Therefore, Semper Fidelis in its original musical form(s) for Piano solo, military band, orchestra, became public domain in the USA in 1944. The original copyright holder of the PUBLISHED editions was Harry Coleman, Philadelphia. That firm was subsequently absorbed by Carl Fischer, Inc.New York. The copyright data DID NOT CHANGEZimbabwe557 10:58, 29 May 2007 (UTC)Zimbabwe557

License tagging for Image:Conductor's portrait.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Conductor's portrait.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 07:05, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Eschew obfuscation[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Eschew obfuscation, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Heritage of the March[edit]

Hello SousaFan88. I recently created an article for the Heritage of the March series. Your profile came up in Google searches while I researched the article, so I was wondering if you might be able to add your knowledge to the article. Since you own many of the LPs, you could add a list of the composers and performers either in the main article or as a separate list. Any interesting information from the albums' linear notes would also be nice.

PS. I am also a march collector, although my 700 marches don't quite compare to your thousands. Aside from locating copies of the HOTM series, do you know any great CDs/LPs you would recommend for building a collection?

File source problem with File:Fred jewell.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Fred jewell.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 22:06, 3 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 22:06, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:2Deception.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:2Deception.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator 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. ╟─TreasuryTagCounsellor of State─╢ 08:21, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Firemaster trio.jpeg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Firemaster trio.jpeg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [1], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
