Shortcuts:

This page is for listing and discussing files that are marked as available under a free license or public domain, but have disputed source or licensing information. Files are listed here for 7 days before they are processed. Files that are tagged with a non-free template should not be listed here.

To list texts with copyright issues, please use WP:Copyright problems.

Instructions[edit]

Before listing, remember that files which are already marked unfree and used under fair use should not be listed here.

To list a file on this page:

I
Edit the file page.

Add {{puf|date=30 July 2015}} to the file page.

II
Create its PUF subsection.

Follow this edit link and list the file using {{subst:puf2|image=File_name.ext|reason=reason}} ~~~~ (remember to exclude the File: prefix).

III
Give due notice.

Inform the uploader by adding a message to their talk page using {{subst:fdw-puf|File_name.ext}} ~~~~

If the image is in use, also consider adding {{pufc|File_name.ext|date=30 July 2015}} to the caption(s), or adding a notice to the article talk pages. Consider also notifying relevant WikiProjects of the discussion.

Remember to replace "File_name.ext" with the name of the file

Unlike Wikipedia:Files for deletion the primary purpose of this page is to ascertain the source and/or copyright status of a file. Therefore it is not specifically a vote to keep or delete but a forum for the exploration of the copyright status/source of a file and contributions should not be added solely in those terms.

Listings should be processed by an administrator after being listed for 7 days. Files that are accepted following this 7-day period should have {{oldpuffull}} added to the file talk page. If no objection to the file's deletion is raised, or no proof that the file is indeed free is provided, the file may be deleted without further notice after the 7-day period.

Note: Files can be unlisted immediately if they are indisputably in the public domain or verifiably licensed under an indisputably free license (GFDL, CC-BY-SA, etc.—see Wikipedia:File copyright tags for more on these).

Speedy deletion[edit]

Blatant copyright violations or files missing source or license information may be "speedied"

If a file is unquestionably copied from another website and no assertion of permission or fair use is made, the file may be speedy deleted under criterion F9 (formerly I9). Such files do not need to be listed here. Please tag the file with {{subst:db-f9|url=source URL}} and warn the user with {{db-copyvio-notice}}.

If a file is missing source, evidence of permission, or license information, place either use:

or

on the description page to put the file in the appropriate category. After being tagged for 7 days, the file will be eligible for speedy deletion per criterion 4 or criterion 11 for images/media.

Please also notify the uploader so they get a chance to fix the problem(s). The templates {{subst:File source|File:file name}} and {{image copyright}} are made for this purpose, but feel free to write a message of your own. It is not necessary to warn the uploader about every individual file if they have uploaded several of such files, but at least one message telling them that files without source/license will be deleted should be given to each user.

If a file is indisputably non-free, and its possible use can comply with our non-free content policy, be bold and retag it as a non-free file using a non-free image tag instead of taking it to this page.

Please note that this page is not for disputing the fair use of already non-free media, but for the disputing if a freely licensed file really is free. Please take queries of this nature to Files for deletion or Non-free content review An archiving system was implemented July 2007. For older discussions, see the history pages. For all discussions from July 3, 2007 forward, see the Archive.

Holding cell[edit]

These files have been listed for at least 7 days. Discussions should be closed following the steps here. Files that have been determined to be acceptable may be removed from this page.

File:Castel-sant-angelo-angel.jpg (delete | talk | history | logs).
This appears to be the original source: Flickr - Dennis Jarvis. Ironically, the photograph is available there under a free license. Wdchk (talk) 13:08, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh, well in that case I've added the (admittedly very nice) freely licensed to Commons, with attribution. See File:Italy-0121 - New Angel (5123905631).jpg. I presume this smaller version can thus be deleted as a duplicate? --Animalparty! (talk) 19:24, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
@Animalparty: Thanks for uploading to Commons. I had in mind to do that, but hadn't yet got around to it. I have added some information to the file description at Commons, most importantly to document the creator and copyright status of the sculpture, which ought to be considered as well as that of the photograph. So yes, I agree that it seems CSD F8 would now apply to the local version. Wdchk (talk) 20:59, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

File:Aerial shot of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.tif (delete | talk | history | logs).
  • This file's stated Fair Use Rationale seems to me to be at variance with Fair Use for multiple reasons. The FUR is incomplete; the file is of stunning size and definition; and it appears that it could be replaced with any number of pictures taken on a visit to the dockyard by any local editor.

Even with Twinkle's help I am never sure which venue to use. If this is the incorrect venue will a knowledgeable person please move it to the right place! Fiddle Faddle 15:59, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Note: This image is currently tagged as non-free. If there is a dispute with the rationale, please tag the image with {{dfu}} or list it at WP:Non-free content review. AnomieBOT 16:08, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Uploader is claiming copyright bu this appears to be a campus building location identifier complete with college logo in the image. Most likely an image taken from the college web site. Whpq (talk) 13:55, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

File:BBCCampus.jpg[edit]

File:BBCCampus.jpg (delete | talk | history | logs).
  • The image is "owned by Florida International University" according to the uploader (whose talk page includes many concerns about image licensing) and it is unlikely that the uploader owns the copyright as claimed and it is unlikely this image has been properly licensed as Creative Commons.

  • Previously deleted as F9 as copied from IMDB. Now the uploader is claiming self-work, but with the publication of this file online and absent any credible evidence of self-work, it is still likely to be a copyright violation. Nick⁠—⁠Contact/Contribs 23:18, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

If the current date's page has been started without the header, apply {{subst:puf log}} to the top of the day's page.
