Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Uploader amended the description with a date after the file was listed for deletion. He must enter in the Summary, in field "date", the date of the original, not the date of the photo and in "author" the name of the original artist, not his. Also he must remove the copyright tag {{PD-self}} as he is not the copyright owner. Sv1xv (talk) 19:52, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Ahem, I am the copyright owner of the photograph, and accordingly have released it in as far as I am able under the laws of my jurisdiction of residence to the public domain. Man vyi (talk) 21:13, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep, PD-Old, but please correct the information. Man vyi, a mechanical copy of a copyright expired work doesn't generate a new copyright. You're welcome to note that you scanned or photographed it or whatever, but you do not become the copyright holder. Thanks. -- Infrogmation (talk) 21:19, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
In my jurisdiction I do, though, and I insist on giving it to the public domain. Man vyi (talk) 21:22, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, then it would be good to list the copyright status of both the original and your derivitive work to avoid potential confusion, I think. -- Infrogmation (talk) 21:24, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Close as Kept; no copyright violation; photo of old PD work. I think the image description page is in order now, but if any further tweaking is appropriate it can be done without a deletion request. -- Infrogmation (talk) 22:33, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
