This documentation is transcluded from Template:URAA artist/doc.

English: This template may be used in articles and categories of artists whose copyright has expired in their source countries (70 years after their deaths in most European nations, see Wikipedia:Non-U.S. copyrights for details) but whose works were still under copyright on their country's URAA date (usually Jan 1, 1996). For these artists, any works published 1923 or later remain copyrighted in the United States until at least 2018. Commons cannot host works that are not in the public domain in the United States.
