Images on the Thessaloniki article
Hi! Thanks for uploading new images on Commons, however the images you have uploaded are copyright violations as they are not published under a free lisence or if they are there is no indication on the pages you said you got the images from. I have tagged them for speedy deletion. The problem with the New Music Hall in particular is that it is a copyright violation anyway, because the artist (Arata Isozaki) is still alive and it is his own design. --Philly boy92 (talk) 06:24, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
- The only reference on Agelioforos I can find that relates to copyright violation (apart from the copyright Agelioforos 2011 tag at the bottom of the page) is this:
- "Εκτός των ρητά αναφερόμενων εξαιρέσεων (πνευματικά δικαιώματα τρίτων, συνεργατών και φορέων), όλο το περιεχόμενο του Agelioforos.gr, συμπεριλαμβανομένων εικόνων, γραφικών, φωτογραφιών, σχεδίων, κειμένων, των παρεχομένων υπηρεσιών και γενικά όλων των αρχείων αυτού του δικτυακού τόπου, αποτελούν πνευματική ιδιοκτησία, κατατεθειμένα σήματα και σήματα υπηρεσιών του Agelioforos.gr και προστατεύονται από τις σχετικές διατάξεις του ελληνικού δικαίου, του ευρωπαϊκού δικαίου και των διεθνών συμβάσεων και συνθηκών." from here and it clearly says that any and all content on Agelioforos is subject to copyright and not public domain.
- The images that have been uploaded on commons are usually from Flickr, which has images that are in the public domain. Images used on the internet are usually not public domain even though their use is widespread. If you want to upload a picture, you need to show us that the author has published it in the public domain; this is not the case with any of your pictures. As for Arata Isozaki, no he did not take the picture but the design is his intellectual property. --Philly boy92 (talk) 06:45, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Someone please tell me at least how is the map that is available to be freely downloaded from a government website a violation?? plus there are tons of images in other articles with similar sources given and there are images EVERYWERE were they have sources from blogs and governmental sites which have no copyright attached to them. ie. the image of the flag of the municiplaity of thessaloniki ..obviously itwas downladed from the municipal site and uploaded here, i dont understand why doing the same for the seich sou map is a violation???
- If you know of such images, please point them out to me; there shouldn't be and they will be deleted. You need to understand that "freely downloaded" doesn't mean "free to be re-published and re-used anywhere else". Whenever somebody puts an image up on their website, by default, that means only he allows people to look at it (and store it locally on their own computer perhaps). The whole notion of copyright is about the fact that the author still retains the right to control if and how it can be reproduced elsewhere. He retains this right, by default, even without an explicit copyright notice, unless he explicitly signs it away. This goes both for private authors and for government bodies. Images of official flags are an exception, because (at least in some legislations) they are excepted from copyright by law. Fut.Perf. ☼ 07:23, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
