Mistaken deletion by bot of photograph from Commons

Hi Magnus, I had asked a photographer to upload a photo he took of Kari Stefansson to the commons so that I could use it in an infobox on his page. However the Regasterios bot, which I beleive you run, deleted it, mistakenly citing a copyright violation.

Christopher Lund is definitely the copyright holder, and has released it for use on the commons (I have seen the release). Can you please undelete it? The record is: 19:02, 29 January 2020 Regasterios talk contribs deleted page File:Dr-Kari-Stefansson-CEO-of-deCODE-genetics.jpg (Copyright violation, found elsewhere on the web and unlikely to be own work (F1): Copyright violation: https://brcasymposium.ca/index_fr.php) (thank) (global usage; delinker log)

I presume that the previous use cited by the bot (and it has been used elsewhere) was under license for a specific page but should not mean that the copyright holder cannot release it to the public if he wishes to.

Thanks for your prompt attention to this. I can of course undo the deletion myself but would rather you do it and this might even help the bot to learn. Cheers! Lehmansson (talk) 12:09, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
