A Warning to the Curious[edit]

Hi, could you undelete A Warning to the Curious which you prevously deleted as a copyvio? The 70-year term has now expired (UK author, died in 1936). Thanks. DuncanHill (talk) 17:47, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunately, your request cannot be approved through 2020 per Wikisource:Possible_copyright_violations/Archives/2009-12#Various_works_of_Author:Montague_Rhodes_James and American non-acceptance of the rule of the shorter term, without evidence of USA copyright licensing. PLEASE visit Wikilivres:A Warning to the Curious at the alternate website in Canada. THANK you for your understanding. SORRY for any inconvenience caused by American copyright imperialists.--Jusjih (talk) 22:35, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks, I'll see if I can change the links to Wikisource from enwiki to point to Wikilivres (which I hadn't encountered before). DuncanHill (talk) 10:04, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
You are welcome and perhaps many Wikipedians are unaware of Canadian Wikilivres.--Jusjih (talk) 02:55, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm sure we are unaware, looks like a good site. DuncanHill (talk) 22:26, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

In search of Modernity[edit]

Could you have another look at the copyright violations discussion page about the above-speech by Mr Ma Ying-jeou. I have pointed out a couple of further important things since you last contributed in this matter. I believe the speech can be lawfully hosted on this website. Thanks. Formosa (talk) 09:17, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Reviewing your deleted contributions, you seem to have many deleted copyvios. If so, I cannot help you a lot as I am more busy on Chinese Wikisource.--Jusjih (talk) 00:08, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Alternatively, you may add more texts of the United Nations Security Council Resolutions that have copyright released to the public domain per {{PD-UN}}. That will keep you occupied until every resolution is added here.--Jusjih (talk) 00:29, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I have only asked you to help with one work. You did offer to help me with it. I can't help but feel disappointed that you now won't do so. Formosa (talk) 13:29, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

This is where you left off in the discussion:

Jusjih - Many thanks for your assistance. I appreciate it. Given your conclusion that you think Taiwan can be included on the List, please could you have a look at: The Quest for Modernity. That is an article containing a speech by ROC President Ma Ying-Jeou. User: Billinghurst (Administrator) deleted it. If you think it is in order, please Billinghurst, could you restore the speech. Or please could you discuss this with Administrator Jusjih. Thanks. I hope this speech can be restored. I believe its being stored here would not infringe ROC copyright. Formosa (talk) 16:51, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately I cannot undelete it when it was made at Harvard University in the USA where this website is located, without evidence of USA copyright permission. As {{PD-in-USGov}} says that 17 U.S.C. 105 does not automatically apply outside the USA, neither does Article 9 of the ROC Copyright Act automatically apply outside Taiwan. Please explain which ROC website you saw the text, or I uphold Billinghurst's deletion as valid.--Jusjih (talk) 03:23, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
The speech has been published on the official website of the Office of the President of the Republic of China. You can read it by going to [1] and then clicking on press releases and opening the link entitled "President Ma's remarks at the video conference with the Fairbank Center, Harvard University". Thanks for looking into this. It is appreciated. Formosa (talk) 10:38, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Also User:Jusjih, you are mistaken when you say "I cannot undelete it when it was made at Harvard University in the USA". President Ma Ying-jeou made the speech in the Republic of China at his Presidential Office in Taipei. It was merely broadcast live to the Fairbank Centre, Harvard University, USA. User:Jusjih - Do these facts now change the position? Formosa (talk) 07:13, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Please appeal the deletion per Wikisource:Deletion_policy#Undeletion at Wikisource:Proposed deletions.--Jusjih (talk) 21:19, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Unfair block[edit]

Dear Jusjih – I have become fairly active on the Wikisource:Possible copyright violations ‎ discussion page in recent times. You are probably familiar with some of the issues I have raised there (including what is meant by an “Edict of Government”). On 2 May 2010 I made a number of edits. Most of these edits related to me “tagging, hiding and listing for discussion” works that were labeled as “Edicts of Government” (e.g. South African political speeches, a national anthem and other works). The same day Administrator Billinghurst blocked me. I cannot say precisely why – as he did not give precise reasons – but the general heading he gave was that “Okay, that is too rampant” (i.e. I was being too active in ““tagging, hiding and listing for discussion”).

I have disagreed with Billinghurst on a number of copyright points of late – basically, I would like the same standard to be applied to all works. The same high standard that is – even if that means that a lot of works need to be listed for discussion etc - but his approach is different. I think Billinghurst views me as ‘trouble’. In contrast, I think I have made a worthwhile contribution, prompting interesting discussions, greater clarity and the removal of some works. Indeed, the works I “tagged, hid and listed for discussion” on 2 May 2010 have led to interesting copyright discussions on the copyright violations discussion page. I would like Billinghurst to apologise for blocking me and somehow “expunge” my record.

I would appreciate any contribution you would like to make on my talk page where my block is being discussed. I am sending this message to all persons who have participated on the same copyright violation discussions as me. I do not know how else to generate further participation in the discussion concerning my block save direct messages – as I cannot list this matter (a personal one) on the copyright violations page. The discussion is at User talk:Formosa. Given my treatment, I admit to feeling a bit disheartened about my continuing involvement in the copyright violations project. Thanks.

墨子的英語翻譯[edit]

我在轉譯墨子。我想要邀請許多中語說者對於這個作業。我想要轉譯那個經因為沒有足以英語翻譯的文言作品在維基書庫中。您的加入將很多感激。 O.J.S. (talk) 00:50, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

No. I cannot help on this. Unfortunately I cannot translate classical Chinese well.--Jusjih (talk) 01:10, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Alright. If you do encounter anybody who can, please, point them in the direction of the project. O.J.S. (talk) 02:03, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello.

I was wondering how best to approach this list of broken redirects and stopped myself from deleting them and check with you first in case there is some standard way to soft redirect to the now exported articles that I don't know about. -- George Orwell III (talk) 22:26, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

I just added Template:Wikilivres page to those with incoming redirects to explain why we cannot host the texts. The template can also be used even without incoming redirects. Then we need not delete the redirects.--Jusjih (talk) 01:33, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

(Wúménguān)[edit]

A wikipedian stopped by asking for some help with this text that they wished to post on Wikisource to support related wikipedia article. If I understand the copyright situation correctly, the 1934 translator of this publication, regarding a 13th century Mandarin work, did not renew their US copyright claim in the early 1960s. This inaction on their part qualifies this translation for the public domain within the US. I was able to verify that the text found on the link above follows on-line versions exactly. Would like your review of this situation to ensure we did not overstep any boundaries. Thank-you for your help with this matter…JamAKiska (talk) 23:25, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

As long as the non-renewal of the US copyright is ascertained, we can have the translation. I just added 1990 to PD-US-no-renewal to warn the non-acceptance of the rule of the shorter term in certain countries and areas. Thanks for your message.--Jusjih (talk) 23:04, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Thank-you for your timely help with this matter…JamAKiska (talk) 01:27, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Transwiki[edit]

There a group of article at Wikisource:Proposed deletions#Anecdotes & Epigrams to transwiki to wikiquote and hopefully merge into q:Diogenes of Sinope, Following the directions at m:Help:Transwiki I have manually moved one in and documented at q:Talk:Diogenes of Sinope and q:Wikiquote:Transwiki log/Articles moved to here. I see that you have import tools to do the full move from wikisource to wikiquote, if you would like to move them all that would be great, if not I will continue with the manual move next week. JeepdaySock (talk) 10:59, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Daany Beédxe[edit]

According to OTRS #2011122010010631, the author gives permission to publish the book here, Regards Ezarate (talk) 13:17, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

I have no access to OTRS, so I cannot verify your information. Please tell this to the OTRS volunteers, so the fact can be properly posted.--Jusjih (talk) 14:27, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Photography: Theory and Practice[edit]

Did you still want to do more moving of files before this is closed? Wikisource:Possible_copyright_violations#Photography:_Theory_and_Practice. Jeepday (talk) 14:38, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

To be specific, I prefer to move all of the files and related templates after being sure that Wikisource cannot keep them in the USA. Now, are there any good reasons to keep the work and its files here in the USA? If not, I will move them to Canadian Wikilivres.--Jusjih (talk) 14:41, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
My reading of the discussion indicates that the US copyright is unclear. There are good arguments for and against, but we did not reach a clear consensus to keep, so have to default to delete when closing copyvio. You indicated it would be ok on Canadian Wikilivres, so I am just waiting for you to finish the move and I will close and delete here. Jeepday (talk) 14:50, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately I have trouble importing to Canadian Wikilivres now with the message repeated: "Import failed: Loss of session data. Please try again." I will try again later. Thanks for your patience.--Jusjih (talk) 17:28, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Icelandic wikisource[edit]

I posted a reply on the Icelandic wikisource to your message regarding my sysop status there. Edinborgarstefan (talk) 22:01, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Letters from the Earth[edit]

Do you know when according to US law we will be able to host this? It's a very confusing policy considering when the author died how it hasn't. Etym (talk) 01:59, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

As its author Mark twain died in 1910 but the work was posthumously published in 1962 with American copyright renewal, it is legally copyrightable in the USA through 2057.--Jusjih (talk) 08:17, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Desiderata[edit]

I started a discussion at Wikisource:Possible copyright violations#Desiderata, as the deleting admin your input would be appreciated :) — Hobart (talk) 08:14, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Translation namespace[edit]

Hi, I think the discussion that you're after is Wikisource:Administrators' noticeboard/Archives/2013#New Name Space. The details of the Bugzilla are in there as well. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 06:25, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the hint, so I may ask Chinese Wikisource users.--Jusjih (talk) 06:01, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
