Peter Pan[edit]

Hello TheDood. Please note that a work you are adding, Peter Pan, has previously been deleted as a possible infringement of copyright (see "Restore Peter Pan?", Proposed Deletions, June 2006). I've deleted the pages per criteria for speedy deletion G6 ("content previously deleted as a copyright violation"). // [admin] Pathoschild (talk/map) 16:45, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, just want to say that I love your recent contributions. :-) Danny 03:10, 8 July 2006 (UTC)


Hi, TheDood,

I've marked the text you've been adding, Halo, as a copyright violation because of an incompatibility between how the author wants his text used the broader policies of both Wikisource and the Wikimedia Foundation. As the author does not allow for modifications of his work and does not allow people to distribute for money, Wikisource sadly cannot host it. You can read more about our policy here. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you for your interest in Wikisource, and you understanding of this matter.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 17:04, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Author:Andre Norton[edit]

Do you have any reason to believe these works are not copyrighted? Please read Help:Copyright and Wikisource. --BirgitteSB 12:57, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, according to Gutenberg, extensive research has shown these works have not had their copyright renewed. --theDood 15:12, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

That's good news. You might want to set-up something like at the bottom of Author:H. P. Lovecraft because I am sure it will be a perinial question--BirgitteSB 23:12, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

More Copyright . . .[edit]

I know you are aware about copyright issues, and it would really help if you would go ahead and put copyright tags on the texts. Especially the ones that are published after 1923, like the some at Author:Achmed Abdullah. Otherwise you are probably going to be asked for the reasoning on these texts individually as people work through looking for copyvios.--BirgitteSB 00:56, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair use image[edit]

Hi TheDood; please reivew Wikisource:Image use guidelines and Wikisource:Copyrights ("Fair use is explicitly prohibited on Wikisource."). We can't upload non-free images (which a recent bookcover is) to use here, since that's fair use. If there's an old image on Commons, we could use that. I've listed the Moby Dick image on Wikisource:Proposed deletions. --Spangineerwp (háblame) 22:00, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

The Sword of Islam[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikisource. We appreciate your contribution of the text The Sword of Islam, but in general we cannot accept copyrighted material. Please see Wikisource:Copyright for more information on this topic, or generally, Wikisource:Policies and guidelines. Please do not remove the copyright violation notice placed in the text or repost the suspected infringing material. Prior to removal, suspected copyright infringing texts will be discussed on Wikisource:Possible copyright violations. You are invited and encouraged to participate in the discussion. Thank you. --Benn Newman 19:58, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

License tags[edit]

To save people the trouble of digging through the page on the copyright of Robert E. Howard's works, can you please add an appropriate license template to the works (or to new ones at least or when you're bored? {{PD-US-no-renewal}} seems to be most relevant. Thanks! --Benn Newman (AMDG) 04:34, 18 December 2006 (UTC)


Is there something missing between Chapters 1 and 2 of "Mr. Midshipman Easy" ? There seems to be quite a disconnect... 05:58, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Chapter 7 of MME is also seemingly incorrect (Mr. Midshipman Easy/Chapter 7). 06:30, 20 February 2007 (UTC)


Hello TheDood. Please note that I have proposed that Image:Lovecraft.jpg be deleted as it may be in violation of Wikisource's copyright policy; I invite you to participate in the discussion taking place on Possible copyright violations. The text will be deleted in a week if there is no dispute that this work is copyrighted. Thank you for your interest in our project.


Hi, any chance you know why Image:Sabatini.jpg is in the public domain? (see Image talk:Sabatini.jpg) John Vandenberg 04:07, 23 August 2007 (UTC)


Its source and license, please?--Jusjih (talk) 22:35, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

A Tale of Two Ballantynes[edit]

I see you've not been active in some time, so fyi; see: User talk:John Vandenberg#A Tale of Two Ballantynes.diff All good faith, I'm sure. Cheers, Jack Merridew 04:13, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
