Public domain license templates[edit | edit source]

See also Template:Cc-zero, a Creative Commons public domain license.

Template:PD[edit | edit source]

Avoid {{PD}}, which is too generic. Where possible, always use more specific public domain (PD) templates like {{PD-author}}, or for your own work {{PD-self}}, or {{PD-old-auto}} (with an author-death-year parameter) if the old copyright has expired.

PD This file has been released into the public domain by the copyright holder, its copyright has expired, or it is ineligible for copyright. This applies worldwide.

Template:PD-1923[edit | edit source]

This template is premised on the work's publication date. If you can discover the author's death date, please prefer {{PD-old-auto}}.
Public license This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923.



Dialog-warning.png
Public domain works must be out of copyright in both the United States and in the source country of the work in order to be hosted on the Commons. If the work is not a U.S. work, the file must have an additional copyright tag indicating the copyright status in the source country.


Template:PD-Art[edit | edit source]

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of an original two-dimensional work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain". For details, see When to use the PD-Art tag.
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain.

Please be aware that depending on local laws, re-use of this content may be prohibited or restricted in your jurisdiction. See Reuse of PD-Art photographs.


Template:PD-Australia[edit | edit source]

Public domain This image is of Australian origin and is now in the public domain because its term of copyright has expired. According to the Australian Copyright Council (ACC), ACC Information Sheet G023v16 (Duration of copyright) (Feb 2012).
Type of material Copyright has expired if ...
 A  Photographs or other works published anonymously, under a pseudonym or the creator is unknown: taken or published prior to 1 January 1955
 B  Photographs (except A): taken prior to 1 January 1955
 C  Artistic works (except A & B): the creator died before 1 January 1955
 D  Published editions[1] (except A & B): first published more than 25 years ago
 E  Commonwealth or State government owned[2] photographs and engravings: taken or published more than 50 years ago and prior to 1 May 1969
  1. editions  means the typographical arrangement and layout of a published work. eg. newsprint.
  2. owned  means where a government is the copyright owner as well as would have owned  copyright but reached some other agreement with the creator.

When using this template, please provide information of where the image was first published and who created it.

Template:PD-author[edit | edit source]

Use this template for second-person authors whose work and license were first published elsewhere with a {{PD-self}} template.


When tagging your own work it is better to use the {{PD-self}} template.

1. it was subject to Crown copyright and was first published more than 50 years ago, or

it was not subject to Crown copyright, and

2. it is a photograph that was created prior to January 1, 1949, or
3. the creator died more than 50 years ago.

Template:PD-Gutenberg[edit | edit source]

Template:PD-ineligible[edit | edit source]

Template:PD-Norway[edit | edit source]

PD This image is in the Public Domain in Norway because the Norwegian Copyright law (§43a) specifies that images not considered to be "works of art" become public domain 50 years after creation, provided that more than 15 years have passed since the photographer's death or the photographer is unknown.

Under the former photo law, protection ended 25 years after creation, provided that more than 15 years had passed since the photographer's death or the photographer is unknown. The image is in the public domain if this older term already had expired as of 29 June 1995.[1]


To uploader: Please provide information about where the image was first published, who created it, and when the photographer died, if known. The right to be attributed does not expire in Norway.

Images uploaded to Wikimedia Commons must also be in the public domain in the United States. A Norwegian work that is in the public domain in Norway is in the public domain in the U.S. only if it was in the public domain in Norway in 1996 and no copyright was registered in the U.S. (This is the effect of 17 USC 104A with its critical date of January 1, 1996.)

Template:PD-old-auto (and related templates)[edit | edit source]

If you provide the death year of the author (for example, 1941) as a parameter (for example, {{PD-old-auto|1941}}), this template automatically calculates and displays the longest-allowable copyright span as the life of the author plus either 70, 75, 80, 90, or 100 years. As years pass, the license span will change, because more years will have elapsed since the life of that author. Once this template is used, there is no need to re-edit the page, because it will automatically adjust for the actual year (currently: 2020), in the future. For example, {{PD-old-auto|1941}} displays as:


Template:PD-old-70. Where possible, avoid using {{PD-old-70}} directly. Prefer {{PD-old-auto}} with an author's-death-year parameter.
Template:PD-old-75. Do not use {{PD-old-75}} directly. Prefer {{PD-old-auto}} with an author's-death-year parameter.
Template:PD-old-80. Do not use {{PD-old-80}} directly. Prefer {{PD-old-auto}} with an author's-death-year parameter.
Template:PD-old-90. Do not use {{PD-old-90}} directly. Prefer {{PD-old-auto}} with an author's-death-year parameter.
Template:PD-old-100. Do not use {{PD-old-100}} directly. Prefer {{PD-old-auto}} with an author's-death-year parameter.

Template:PD-OpenClipart[edit | edit source]

Template:PD-self[edit | edit source]

Use this template when you are self-publishing a work for the first time.

When tagging another author's self-published work which originally used this template, it is better to use the {{PD-author}} template.
