Do not subst: this template. Apply it immediately above any licensing information or at the beginning of the page. You may optionally specify a reason as the first parameter. Do not replace or remove any copyright or licensing information already present.

This template is meant to be used when a file's licensing information appears to be incorrect or inaccurate, to prompt discussion or review by other editors. An inaccurate licensing is often due to tagging a public domain image with a free license, or because source or informations provided are not sufficient enough to support the selected license tag.

Items tagged with this template are sorted into Category:Items with disputed copyright information. If an image has blatantly false licensing information, use another template (see below).

Use this template if:

  • The image is unlikely to have the proper licensing information.
  • The image's source contains licensing information that conflicts with the information on the image's description page (unless the below criteria are met).


Do not use this template if:

  • There is no source information at all. Use {{subst:nsd}}.
  • There is no licensing information at all. Use {{subst:nld}}.
  • The image is a blatant copyright infringement. Use {{copyvio}}.
  • The image is non-free per Commons:Licencing. Start a deletion request.


You should notify the uploader with {{subst:Wrong license note|File:Filename|reason}} ~~~~ (Just copy and paste this prefilled from the file page after tagging it)
