Error?[edit]

Something seems to have been broken …

  • {{Pd/1996|1944}} gives
Public domain The author died in 1944, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 60 years or less.

  3. it was in the public domain in its home country on the URAA date (January 1, 1996 for most countries).

For background information, see the explanations on Non-U.S. copyrights.

"The author died in $country"[edit]

Hi,

{{PD-old-auto-1996|country=France|deathyear=1926}} results in The author died in France, so this work is also in the public domain in countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 80 years or less. Shouldn't that be "The author died in 1926 […]"? --El Grafo (talk) 21:14, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Category suppression[edit]

I added an example to PD-old-auto-1996 at Template:PD-old-auto-1996/doc, but it resulted in the doc page appearing at Category:PD-old-75-1996. It looks like {{PD-old-X-1996}} already supports category suppression, the problem is that PD-old-auto-1996 just isn't passing along the hidden category parameter. I'm going to modify this template to address the issue. —RP88 21:40, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

That appears to have worked (also zapped the two embedded uses above as well).RP88 21:48, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
No, that was less successful than I thought. Implementing pass-though category suppression needs a technique like the ones at en:Wikipedia:Category suppression. I'm thinking about adding support for "nocat". —RP88 22:03, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
I restricted the categories only to files. --Jarekt (talk) 13:54, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
