The Holocaust: The Jewish Tragedy copyright[edit]

Hi Andrew. I am pretty sure the Gilbert book is copyrighted. Danny 13:16, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

I wrote to him and he is keen to promote understanding of the Holocaust. Thank you very much for expresing your concern--Andrew 2007 13:37, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Please stop removing {{copyvio}} from The Holocaust: The Jewish Tragedy. There is an open case on our possible copyvio discussion page concerning this work. If you have reason to believe that this work is compatible with Wikisource, after reading our copyright policy, please comment here. But the template must remain on the page until this issue is closed. Thank you.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 19:17, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

I have explained numerous times that I have obtained permission from Martin Gilbert to publish the text under the GDFL free documentation license. I have explained this to numerous users, and do not appreciate my hard work being reverted--Andrew 2007 19:18, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
You're work is not being reverted, simply "hidden" by the copyvio template so it does not show up on the article page for the time being.
There is a high burden of proof that is placed upon the contributor to prove that the work he/she is adding has actually been licensed by the copyright holder. The WMF cannot know for sure that the author has actually licensed this, and a contributor claiming the author has given permission, sadly, is not enough. If the work is to be accepted on Wikisource, the author will have to e-mail "" and give an unambiguous declaration that he licenses the work under the GFDL.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 19:25, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Fine I'll get him to do that but its not like anybody's gonna sue a charity--Andrew 2007 19:31, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
That's great! There is just one more thing that must be done before we can proceed. We need an admin with OTRS access (such as Pathoschild) to confirm the ticket and that everything in the release is in order. This might seem to be a little nitpicky, but there have been some poor e-mails in the past that might still make us liable for copyright infringement. Making sure everything in Gilbert's e-mail is in order will be the last push before we can get the work on WS. I'll ask Pathoschild to confirm the ticket.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 21:30, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
Your a doll, get back to me when hes got his butt into action :P, lol. Thanks, --Andrew 2007 22:12, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
Hello. The release sent to the Foundation was received from a free Hotmail account, so we cannot accept it (OTRS ticket#2007041510015614). I've asked them to confirm from a verifiable source, like an address associated with the official website. Please do not recreate The Holocaust: The Jewish Tragedy until the discussion about possible copyright violation concludes favourably. If you would like to comment, see Wikisource:Possibly copyright violations. —{admin} Pathoschild 20:12:08, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
