Re: Wikisa-l Digest, Vol 29, Issue 2

Vishnu t
Dear Nehal,

I have gone through the link you have shared. It looks like you are
uploading non-free images on to Commons. All these have been deleted.

To upload images on commons, you need to first be clear of the copyright
of the image.

Scenario 1: Have you yourself photographed the image? If yes, then you
can upload it to commons under a free lincense.

Scenario 2: Are you uploading an image that you have not photographed?
If yes, do you know who has the copyright for that image? If yes, you
can encourage that particular person to upload onto to Commons or take
his/her permission (there is a particular form, which could be shared)
before uploading it on to Commons. This is slightly complex.

Scenario 3: Are you downloading images from the internet and uploading
them on to Commons? If yes, do not do this as your images will be
deleted and your time and effort would go in vain.

Hope this was useful. Do continue your editing on Wikipedia.

Best,
Vishnu

Re: Wikisa-l Digest, Vol 29, Issue 2

ViswaPrabha (വിശ്വപ്രഭ)-2
I had called Nehal immediately after seeing his mail. I have also explained in detail about the provisions and options for the pictures uploadable onto Wikimedia eco-system.

In fact, Nehal seems to be in a position to facilitate releasing a bulk load of images presently controlled / copyrighted by his state government. What he needs is some expert advice / assistance on how to go about it in the most proper way.

Vishnu, could you please look into this matter? Thanks.

-Viswam
