Appropedia:Image copyright cleanup

From Appropedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is to help keep track of our efforts to clean up the many images on Appropedia which don't have clear permission statements.

Add {{copyvio|reason}} where the violation is clear and it needs to be deleted. More ambiguous or complex tasks can be tracked below.

Files to deal with:

  • These files are supposedly "by permission". Probably not under our license though. I've emailed the uploader with a request for details. --Chriswaterguy 19:34, 26 February 2011 (PST)
  • Practical Action doesn't own the copyrights to all images in its technical briefs - Category:PATB. This is going to require cooperation from them to sort out which is which. No easy answer, I think (other than deleting all PA's images, which would be a shame). Step 1: See if we can find any info on the source of images in particular tech briefs. --Chriswaterguy 19:34, 26 February 2011 (PST)

Avoiding the problem[edit]

  • Make MediaWiki:Uploadtext even more emphatic? (Note some wikis such as Mediawiki.org have large, bold red text - obviously a simple warning is not effective enough.)
  • Set up the upload page more like Wikimedia Commons.
