Hi All, Here I am again with few queries about uploading pictures in Commons.
Problems: 1. There are many postage stamps available on eminent personalities which are to be there in Wikipedia, but as post 1951 postage stamps are not in PD there is no possible way to keep them in Commons, Any solutions for that? 2. There are many pictures available for eminent leaders, and many of them are photographed before 1951, but the source is not available and so is the date of issue. So, I was wondering if I can draw them by hand, scan and using tool make little correction so that they won't violate the copyright. Please suggest me if you have any better idea. I desperately want to see the profile of the prominent people with their pictures. And how about uploading pictures in Flikr? I have seen many pictures uploaded in Commons have the Flikr link, and they are marked as Copyrighted in Flikr (By the same author, I am confused, if it is in public domain or copyrighted) 3. If I have a newspaper cutting and I am not sure about the publication date how can I find a better way than fair usage? Can I sketch by hand seeing the published picture and upload in Commons instead of uploading in regional Wiki? 4. If an image is uploaded is wrongly marked as Copyrighted even if the site is not the actual source of a picture and the original picture is not available what the picture will be called? PD/Copyrighted? 5. If some pictures are available by a State Government portal like here<http://www.orissa.gov.in/e-magazine/Orissareview/febmar2005/englishpdf/tportraitoascbp.pdf> is that possible to add them commons? * ସୁଭପାSubhashishPanigrahi ଓଡ଼ିଆ ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ _______________________________________________ Wikipedia Odia (Oriya) mailing list wikipedia...@lists.wikimedia.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikipedia-or facebook.com/OdiaWiki Tweet @OdiaWiki *
