December 16[edit]

Copyright on advertising concepts ?[edit]

I notice a US TV ad campaign from last year, where kids proposed various fantasies for how Cheese Nips (or maybe Cheez-Its) get that much cheese into their crackers, has now been recycled to an ad for Keurig coffee makers, where kids propose various fantasies for how they get that much coffee flavor into it (although why kids would care about coffee doesn't make any sense). So, either the same ad firm is out of ideas, or a different ad firm is. If it's a different ad firm, could the Cheese Nips firm sue ? StuRat (talk) 03:10, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Ideas are not protected by copyright. Only expressions of said idea are covered. That's why you see so many bargain bin Mockbusters. So whether or not this particular ad is similar to the other is not a legal issue. Mingmingla (talk) 04:06, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Re - FANIE DE JAGER.[edit]

Re - FANIE DE JAGER.

I would like to add the above name to the following categories. Unable to do this by myself. How do I go about doing this.

The categories are:

South African opera singers

Operatic tenors

Afrikaans-language singers

Afrikaner people

Living people

South African male singers



Many thanks.

This is really a question for the Help Desk, but I see you've created a lot of redlinks for South African singers recently. The first thing you should do is take a look at WP:CREATIVE and see if any of these singers meet our Notability guideline. Then, you should assemble some references (see WP:RS) to prove that they do. Then, and only then, can you start writing articles about them. Tevildo (talk) 21:38, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, the notability reference page is at WP:NM not WP:CREATIVE. Tevildo (talk) 21:42, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Martin, you have the system back to front. We don't "add names to categories" as such (although it certainly looks that way). Rather, we add categories to names, as it were. We start with an existing article, then we categorise the subject as required. We cannot categorise a subject for which there is no article. There is no article for Fanie de Jager yet. -- Jack of Oz [Talk] 21:52, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
But now there is. -- Jack of Oz [Talk] 01:28, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
.. though with a severe lack of independent references. AndrewWTaylor (talk) 12:08, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
