Concerns with copyrights of multiple political images: HeminKurdistan[edit]

User: HeminKurdistan (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploads · Abuse filter log
Reason for reporting: This editor has published many images from unreliable websites, websites that have a political COI with hosted images, or images with unknown authors, uknown dates of publication, or shady copy-right claims. Most (if not all) of the images make controversial political claims directed at the People's Mujahedin of Iran, a political group with a complicated and bitter feud with the Islamic Republic's theocrats.

I first noticed this image here that made a false copy-right claim. Then checking through the other images uploaded by this user, I noticed similar uploads (like the ones below) with shady copyright claims. Many of these images have been used throughout Wikipedia by (often by topic banned or sockpuppets) editors for spreading political POV.

@Ypatch: When reporting an account here, you have to inform the user. I did it for you this time.
Is your report politically motivated? It is not clear what issues you have with these files, e.g. files above from VOA are perfectly OK. Yann (talk) 13:05, 13 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
