Usage[edit]

This template allows editors to indicate that a Commons file has been used in up to five non-Wikipedia projects. It can also be used to indicate whether or not such use was in compliance with the terms of the file's license, or that the compliance status is uncertain.

The template should be added to the talk page of a file. It then adds the file's talk page to "Category:Commons as a media source".

Parameters[edit]

All parameters are optional unless otherwise indicated. For information on the parameters used in citation templates, see {{cite book}}, {{cite journal}} and {{cite web}}.

Parameter Description
media By default, the template states: "This file has been used in:". If "media=yes" is used (for instance, where the file is used in a serial publication), it states: "This file has been used by a media organization in:".
cite Mandatory: indicate "cite=book", "cite=journal" or "cite=web" depending on whether you wish to use {{cite book}}, {{cite journal}} or {{cite web}}.
legal Use this parameter to indicate whether the file has been used in a work in compliance with its license:
  • If "legal=yes", the template displays the symbol Terms of license complied with with the tooltip "Terms of license complied with" or an equivalent in another language.
  • If "legal=no", the template displays the symbol Terms of license not complied with with the tooltip "Terms of license not complied with" or an equivalent in another language. The file is added to "Category:Images used by media organizations but violating license terms".
  • If "legal=unsure" or "legal=?", the template displays the symbol Unclear if terms of license complied with with the tooltip "Unclear if terms of license complied with" or an equivalent in another language. This usage may be appropriate where there is a possibility that the publisher of the work cited may have obtained a license to use the work directly from the copyright owner, rather than using the version of the work in the Commons.
  • If |legal= is not used, the template displays the symbol Please specify if terms of license are complied with (a gray circle) with the tooltip "Please specify if terms of license are complied with" or an equivalent in another language.
note A note relating to the work cited.
