Notes and links[edit]

Works of the Philippine government[edit]

  • Commons deletion request concerning works of the Philippine Government (October 2011) - notes that works of the Philippine government are not copyrightable since at least 1924 while the commercial distribution clause was added in 1972
  • Commons deletion request request concerning works of the Philippine Government (April-June 2012) - nominee stated that the template was never valid since "government works are only free for non-commercial purposes", but the clause stating that works of the Philippine government are under the public domain "explicitly [say that] there is no copyright protection on government works"
  • English Wikipedia discussion on works of the Philippine Government (November - December 2015)
  • English Wikipedia discussion on works of the Philippine Government deemed as non-free (January 2016)
  • English Wikipedia discussion on works of the Philippine Government (March 2016) - Discussion that aims to resolve contradiction between Commons and Engish Wikipedia's policy on works of the Philippine Government
  • Commons discussion on {{PD-PhilippinesGov}} (May 2016)
