link problems[edit]

This template doesn't work with external links. Does anyone know why? --Flominator 22:35, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Try use {{PD-because|1=reason}}. The weblink you wanted to add probably contained a "=" so it didn't work. --Matt314 22:42, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

"In case this is not legally possible"[edit]

I have added the "In case this is not legally possible" provision which is present in PD-self, PD-author, etc.

I've found that it was needed in the case of a contributor who managed to obtain a PD-like licence from the copyright holders of images whose authors were deceased, in a country where putting a work in the Public Domain is not straightforwards . In plain text: the author dies, his heirs become copyright holders and grant authorisations to a Wikipedia contributor, and this happens in France.

PD-because was the best template we've found, but the provision was lacking, so I took the liberty of adding it. I hope that it's all right. Rama 22:02, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
