Author/Copyright Holder's Name: Marc Quinn

Article To Be Used On/Reason For Upload: Fair Use for current event. The copyright item in question is the statue - the photograph is my own work, which in keeping with UK copyright law for purposes of news reporting is cropped to show only the subject, and kept as small as possible. For use in "A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020"

Hi AlexJRichards. Since you took the photo, and UK law has Freedom of Panorama for sculptures (see [1]), you may upload the photo to Wikimedia Commons yourself. Please go to c:Special:UploadWizard and follow the instructions, then reply here. Best, --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 22:04, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Hi Mdaniels5757, the fullsize image is already used on the article A_Surge_of_Power_(Jen_Reid)_2020, however unfortunately because of the oddities of UK copyright law, there is a deletion request due to the vague defintion around "permanently situated" statues, see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:A_Surge_of_Power_(Jen_Reid)_15th_July_2020.jpg someone mentioned uploading via this with a smaller/cropped version with justification for fair use. AlexJRichards (talk) 22:13, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Understood.   On hold until the Commons DR is closed. --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 17:51, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@AlexJRichards: Wikipedia’s non-free content use policy is much more restrictive than the concept of fair use. So, any photo of the statue uploaded locally under a license of {{Non-free 3D art}} would almost certainly be only considered acceptable to use in A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020 per item 6 of WP:NFC#UUI. Trying to use the file in other articles which mention the sculpture as part of a discussion about a “current event“ most likely wouldn’t be considered policy compliant. Before anyone uploads such a file as non-free, I think it should be clarified as to exactly which article or articles the file is going to be used in and how the use is justified per relevant policy. — Marchjuly (talk) 22:13, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Should we really just upload all the items in the album?

The picture seems to be from Wiki[pm]edia itself, judging by the "wp-content" substring in the URL. ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 05:11, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
Error. "wp" stands for WordPress. ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 05:29, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
  Comment: I cannot seem to find information about its public domain status. Please fill in "Link To License Information" if possible.~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 05:50, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
  •   Comment: I think this falls under Crown copyright, since the UK is not the US, and works produced by officials of the UK fall under Crown copyright. This being the work of the RAF, it should be such. As a WWII unit, it may have expired already, with the 50-year limit, unless it is considered unpublished before 1988 in which case it doesn't expire until 2040. Does the requestor know if this is considered published material? NOTE, this is not PD-author, it could be PD-old -- 65.93.183.33 (talk) 05:46, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
