Template talk:Screenshot

So should we change this to {{copyvio}} directly? pfctdayelise (translate?) 04:33, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

The reason why I didn't make the redirect was that people directly see the reason why a screenshot is not allowed at commons. But on the other hand zillions of deletion templates also don't help making our message clear... Arnomane 00:02, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
Forgive my ignorance, but - why aren't screenshots allowed on Commons? Are they allowed in other Wiki projects? Tamuz 11:45, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Screenshots are derivative works and are only allowed if the original product was released under a free license/public domain. If your wiki allows fair use items, they may be allowed. It depends on the local rules. pfctdayelise (translate?) 11:49, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Oh. Thanks for the explanation. Well, a few minutes ago I've uploaded a screenshot of the game Planescape: Torment. It can be found here, so you'll probably want to delete it now. I'll upload it to the relevant Wikipedias instead. Thanks again, Tamuz 11:54, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
By the way, I think you should notify on the Upload page that fair-use files aren't allowed here. Many users, myself included, are used to Wikipedias that do allow the upload of such images, so it should be made clear to them that these are not allowed here. Tamuz 11:57, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Good, thanks for being honest. pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:01, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Question[edit]

What about if I ask for permission from one of game companies (ie. Blizzard Entertainment) and got a permission to use for non-commercial use ? Lothar25 00:11, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

We don't allow any media with non-commercial only conditions. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 00:42, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
I see. Thanks for info Lothar25 00:45, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
