Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, Jwkozak91!

{{en}} Can I upload images from a website of the Government of Ukraine? The photos of protests were taken before December 1, 1991 - when Ukraine was not officially independent. They are posted on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.Jwkozak91 02:12, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

No, see Commons:Licensing for copyright expiration terms for some countries. Important is the country where something was first published. Government works of most countries are generelly not public domain with some exemptions like official symbols (the national flag, coats of arms, money, stamps) or the text of laws. The rest is protected by copyright. --Martin H. (talk) 04:16, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello Jwkozak91,

the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore has been or will soon be deleted:

The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content
  • creation of derivative works
  • commercial use
  • free distribution

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons, and Commons:Image casebook for some specific examples. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on Wikimedia Commons; "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Please note that derivative works of copyrighted material are also considered copyrighted. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions.
