Dialog-warning-orange.svg Note: This template is used on a lot of pages. In order not to put too much load on the servers, edits should be kept to a bare minimum. Please discuss proposed changes on the talk page first.
  • Editing a template causes all pages that use the template to be re-rendered. If the template is used often, this can put a lot of load on the servers since it fills up the job queue.
  • Keep in mind that templates that are used on file description pages also show up on other wikis.
  • This page has been protected from editing to prevent vandalism. Only administrators can edit it. Get their attention by placing {{edit protected}} at the talk page.
Public domain This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

This applies to Australia, the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years.


Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years, Russia has 74 years for some authors. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term.

Usage

{{PD-old}}

This tag is to be deprecated. Even works published from 1923 to 1977 are copyrighted in the USA for up to 95 years since publication rather than life + 70 years, rendering this tag not fully clear. Please use the following tags instead:

  • {{PD-old-auto}} for when the author's date of death is known.
  • {{PD-old-100}} for works by authors who died more than 100 years ago.
  • {{PD-old-90}} for works by authors who died more than 90 years ago.
  • {{PD-old-80}} for works by authors who died more than 80 years ago.
  • {{PD-old-75}} for works by authors who died more than 75 years ago.
  • {{PD-old-70}} for works by authors who died more than 70 years ago.
  • {{PD-1923}} for works published before 1 January 1923.
  • {{PD-1996}} for works that are in the public domain in their source countries on 1 January 1996.
