|Wikimedia Commons does not accept derivative works of non-free works such as File:HappyTreeFriends.jpg. It only accepts free content, which 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.
The file you added has been deleted. If you believe that this file was not a derivative work of a non-free work, you may request undeletion.
|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.
|File:NetUt.tiff has been marked as a possible copyright violation. Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content—that is, images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Traditional copyright law does not grant these freedoms, and unless noted otherwise, everything you find on the web is copyrighted and not permitted here. For details on what is acceptable, please read Commons:Licensing. You may find Commons:Copyright rules useful. You can ask questions about Commons policies in Commons:Help desk.
Wikimedia Commons takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.
立て続けのお知らせになって残念です。失礼ながら Joe Elkins さんはまだお歳も若く、著作権などについてよくご理解が及んでいないのではないかと推察いたします。Commons:Licensing、ja:Wikipedia:著作権、またja:Wikipedia:児童・生徒の方々へをご一読いただければ幸いです。また、日本語版ウィキペディアにアップロードしていただいている画像について、ja:Wikipedia:百科事典向け写真撮影のガイドがご参考になると思いますので、ぜひご参照ください。--Aotake (talk) 05:21, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
