You've uploaded a derivative work We're sorry, but File:MiniBrochure2012.JPG has been marked as a copyright violation. Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Reproductions of copyrighted works are also subject to the same copyright, and therefore this file must unfortunately be considered non-free. For more information, please read Commons:Derivative works and Commons:Freedom of panorama. You can ask questions about Commons policies in Commons:Help desk.

Pay attention to copyright
Wikimedia Commons does not accept fair use content. Fair use laws vary from country to country, and uses that are acceptable under US law, for example, may not be acceptable in many other countries with more restrictive rules.

Also, fair use is only applicable in a few limited contexts. The use of a media file in one context may be considered fair use, while the use of the same file in another context may constitute copyright violation. In particular, fair use does not extend to the collection and distribution of media files in a media database such as Commons. Therefore, Commons cannot legally rely on fair use provisions.

Non-free content that may be used with reference to fair use may be uploaded locally to projects which allow this.

  • Upload the file directly to Wikipedia, not Commons. A "fair use license" is acceptable there.
  • If you have questions, please leave me a message on my talk page.
  • Thank you for contributing!

I have been trying to find the right policy for "cover art" as in WP:NFCI. There are numerous magazine covers in Commons, so assumed these would be okay. I obviously used the incorrect tag during uploading. Warren Whyte (talk) 16:23, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Not a problem at all. It just one of the many ways Wikipedia & Commons take something simple and turn it into a big set of administrative hurdles. The magazine covers on Commons are (or should be) "free". That means they are in the public domain or the author/publisher has specifically released them under a free license that Commons finds acceptable. But there are lots of non-free files on Commons too, because, quite honestly, Commons is a disorganized mess compared to Wikipedia. But I digress... Senator2029 16:54, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Go here and put the following in the blank box:
