According to the community consunses, this copyright tag is depreciated due to its use of unclear language and undefined terms. Furthermore, it includes restrictions on uses or re-uses of higher resolution versions of a work, but
  1. does not define the term resolution or higher resolution for the purposes of this restriction and is unclear; and
  2. may be legally unenforceable. Depending upon the jurisdiction, copyright law may treat low-resolution and high-resolution copies as the same work.

Therefore, it is unknown under which conditions works using this tag may be used.

As such, the validity and legality of this tag are in question, and its use may violate the spirit, if not, the letter of the Definition of Free Culture Works and therefore, Commons licensing policy.

Files uploaded on or after 17 March 2021 should not use this tag. Copyright holders of files uploaded before 17 March 2021 are encouraged to licence their work under an acceptable free licence (e.g. {{Cc-by-sa-4.0}}, etc.).
