All images should be tagged with information about their copyright/licensing status and source. It is illegal for us to use images on Religion Wiki for which we do not have permission or which are not usable under the fair use provisions of United States copyright law.

Images which do not conform to policy are subject to immediate deletion. Merely noting the image's source is not enough. There must be verifiable permission given for Religion Wiki's use of the image. It is your responsibility as the uploader to ensure that the image may be used and is tagged as properly licensed.

How to include the tag

When you upload the image, there is a "Summary" box in which you can put the tags. Additionally, you can go to the image's description page—either by clicking on an image in an entry or by going to the description link included after you upload the image—then click the "edit" tab at the top of the page, and add in the appropriate information.

Here are some tags that can be included for images, followed by the notice that will be included:


License Templates

Public Domain

{{pd}} for images in the public domain (note that there are specific conditions for declaring a work in the public domain; finding it on the Internet doesn't count!):

This image has been released into the public domain by the copyright holder, its copyright has expired, or it is ineligible for copyright. This applies worldwide.

Unverified

{{unverified}} for images of unknown source (this should ideally only be used temporarily!):
This image may not have information on its source. It may be usable under fair use but this has yet to be verified. It might be public domain or under a license compatible with the GNU FDL. To the uploader: Please provide licensing information as soon as possible. Images without this information may be deleted in the future. If you are the copyright holder and this image has been used without your permission, please contact the site administrators immediately.



Limited License

{{limited}} for images with a copyright and limited license (you'll also need to include a copyright notice along with that tag):
All Rights Reserved.
The copyright holder listed above hereby grants a limited license for this image to be used in its unaltered form by Religion Wiki's administration and users for inclusion in articles on the website, but not to be copied outside the website or distributed in any other way.



Fair Use

{{fairuse}} for images with a copyright whose usage is believed to constitute fair use under United States copyright law:

This work is copyrighted. The individual who uploaded this work and first used it in an article, and subsequent persons who place it into articles assert that this qualifies as fair use of the material under United States copyright law.


Source Templates

Wikimedia Commons

All images imported from Wikimedia Commons should be stamped with the {{commons}} or {{commons2}}tag, regardless of copyright. This helps us identify the source if need be. Relevant copyright information (e.g. another image license tag) should also be included along with this template.

Library of Congress

For images imported from the Library of Congress Photo Archive that are thought to be in the public domain.
