I'm suggesting a change to the image use policy to deal with copyright changes. When an image is replaced with another image that has a different copyright, should we delete all the images in the history that don't share the new copyright, or put up a notice that the copyright has changed? The page history still has the correct copyright info, but most users wouldn't check if they don't know there was a change. On the other hand, would it be worth the trouble to make sure all copyright changes have said notice rather then just deleting the old files? Thoughts? - Archduk3 16:33, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

No. In cases like these, the new image should be uploaded under a new name really. That way the copyright information is easy to follow through the entire series of images. -- sulfur 18:23, February 13, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Sulfur; the image policy should be changed to make sure that the uploaded images should have a new name. Kjp993 03:44, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
