This is a nice image, and I hate to be all annoying police, but it's based on a non-public domain image! :(

Heya, it was cc attribution licensed. The attribution was given. Since its not sharealike, doesn't prohibit releasing to public domain after the initial attribution.

rejon, 2014-02-06

Please bring back too. I can't get to it right now.

rejon, I want this image too!! but creative commons attribute does not equal public domain... we can get in trouble if we blur those lines, no? I'm not sure what happened to the otherone, I tried to mark it as issue like I did with this one, but I guess I might have nuked it? None the less, I wish we could have them Hoffman was a true genius

I don'T know, maybe I over thought that one, I guess if you can argue you made a derivitive artwork that is now in the public domain, maybe it could be argued that your version is the public domain,,,_.? I guess I was jumping in too fast? But if the original author things you are just posting his/her image on this site and changing the license, that's no good. I was just jumpy because we just been having some bad copyvios recently.

Hey, better safe than sorry. I've often converted CC BY images to pd after making a derivative with some transformation and giving attribution. I don't want to split hairs though. It comes down to what you and others in our community think is the right thing to do more than anything else. Can you get another opinion on it? Meanwhile, I'll look for a pd image of Hoffman. Deal?

Sounds wonderful... I'm sorry if I sounded too much like police, I want everything to be shared and personally think copyright law is old fashioned... but at the same time, we say we are public domain images and should only do that I guess... any case, I'll keep an eye out for pd Hoffman images too :)

j4p4n great if you can help find not only hoffman images, but also images for the worldnews section!

I modified the tags. They should descripe the image, not the person shown on the image. Somebody searching for "actor, director, deceased" would probably expect such an image? Head, age, description of hairs, glasses - that is part of the image. My opinion about the license: If you don't just copy the work of somebody else, but modify it/work on it, which is what happened here, it is a derived work, and if the license allows to redistribute derived work under a different license, i.e. not share alike, I guess it might be done. What else would be the purpose of the -SA licenses?

rejon, 2014-02-09

Exactly, by modifying the original under a CC BY (attribution) license, I created a derivative work that I then have the copyright to, and then I give attribution to that original (for clarity, compliance and friendly) sake, and then release my copyright to mine into the public domain.
