Hi AlexJRichards. Since you took the photo, and UK law has Freedom of Panorama for sculptures (see [1]), you may upload the photo to Wikimedia Commons yourself. Please go to c:Special:UploadWizard and follow the instructions, then reply here. Best, --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 22:04, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Hi Mdaniels5757, the fullsize image is already used on the article A_Surge_of_Power_(Jen_Reid)_2020, however unfortunately because of the oddities of UK copyright law, there is a deletion request due to the vague defintion around "permanently situated" statues, see someone mentioned uploading via this with a smaller/cropped version with justification for fair use. AlexJRichards (talk) 22:13, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Understood. On hold until the Commons DR is closed. --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 17:51, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@AlexJRichards: Wikipedia’s non-free content use policy is much more restrictive than the concept of fair use. So, any photo of the statue uploaded locally under a license of {{Non-free 3D art}} would almost certainly be only considered acceptable to use in A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020 per item 6 of WP:NFC#UUI. Trying to use the file in other articles which mention the sculpture as part of a discussion about a “current event“ most likely wouldn’t be considered policy compliant. Before anyone uploads such a file as non-free, I think it should be clarified as to exactly which article or articles the file is going to be used in and how the use is justified per relevant policy. — Marchjuly (talk) 22:13, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Vectorworks logo update[edit]

Non-free media information and use rationale – non-free logo for Vectorworks

This is the logo owned by Vectorworks for Vectorworks.


The logo is located here: (please note that this is a black logo with a transparent background so it may appear to link to a fully black screen). The logo is from this website:



Portion used

The entire logo is used to convey the meaning intended and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the intended image.

Low resolution?

The logo is of a size and resolution sufficient to maintain the quality intended by the company or organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution.

Purpose of use

The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing Vectorworks, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.


Because it is a non-free logo, there is almost certainly no free representation. Any substitute that is not a derivative work would fail to convey the meaning intended, would tarnish or misrepresent its image, or would fail its purpose of identification or commentary.

Other information

Please update the existing logo file with this version, which is the most up-to-date version.
