I agree with you but with one exemption: the
deletion of copyvios.
opinion we have to delete them as far as possible
to show all
that we do not accept copyvios. Redlinks are more
Well, how do you define a copyvio?
We do not define it at all. That is defined by law.
Almost everything that we delete
has, in the end, been decided to be a copyvio or a suspect copyright
No, we do not delete because we have the suspicion! This makes the
thing very tricky. Because the commons-community must prove that we
have a clear copivio.
On one hand this is bad because the commons pics have been used on
several pages in the internet and nobody can tell us wich pic was
first. On the other hand we have the problem that people ignore the
warning (and this is the more likely way things happen) and upload
pics without asking people from commons first.
I therefore suggest adding to the notice "If unsure contact an
administrator see Commons:Administrators".
That is after all why we delete no-source/no-license
Yep. And that is good!
That is why we delete screenshots and derivative works
photos of public art in certain parts of the world, and images once
believed to be free but found out to be actually not.
Acknowledgement to the first part and but do not understand the second
part. I will never delete a photo take of 2D art. Taking a picture of
the e.g. "Mona Lisa" makes nobody get new copyright. Even if the
museums claim it (the threshold of originality is far to low). But
maybe you are talking about 3D statues?
suspect or believe they infringe someone's copyright. So, this is
rather where we are right now, rather than a new position.
As I said we must not delete on suspicion.
In case of any
complains by original authors we can say "sorry for
violation, but we do our very best to fight
Hm, that's a good point, at least morally. I don't know if it holds
any legal weight.
I also don't know how many, if any, serious legal problems the WMF
ever has with regards to images. But that's why my second escape
clause was for "OFFICE" style actions, where Jimbo et al intervene
to avoid imminent legal action and the like.
An idea *poke Düsentrieb*: Is it possible to show
at CheckUsage if
project has a CommonsTicker? This can reduce the
work to en: and
I think that's a great idea!
