ఇది కాపీహక్కు కలిగిన వికీపీడియా వెబ్ పేజీ. వికీపీడియాలోని పాఠ్యవిశేషాన్ని GNU ఫ్రీ డాక్యుమెంటేషన్ లైసెన్సు (GFDL) లైన్సు కింద విడుదల చేసాం. వికీపీడియాను నడిపించే MediaWiki సాఫ్టువేరు GNU General Public License (GPL) కింద విడుదలైంది.

వికీపీడియా లోగోను (ఆ తెరమెరుపుపై కనిపిస్తే) ఏ స్వేచ్ఛా లైసెన్సు కిందా విడుదల చెయ్యలేదు.

లైసెన్సుపై గమనిక: GFDL కేవలం పాఠ్య డాక్యుమెంటేషను లేదా ఇతర పాఠ్యాలు, వాటి తద్భవాల కు మాత్రమే. సాఫ్టువేరూ, దాని తద్భవాల పాఠ్యం ఇంకా ఇతర కృతులు GPL వాడవచ్చు. వికీపీడియా అసలు కంటెంటు GFDL కింద విడుదలయ్యాయి, కానీ వికీపీడియా ఇంటారుఫేసు డిజైను, ఇంకా మీడియావికీ సాఫ్టువేరు లోని ఇతర విభాగాలు GPL కింద విడుదలయ్యాయి.

అంచేత ఈ తెరమెరుపు లోని భాగాలు రెండు వేరు వేరు లైసెన్సుల కింద విడుదల చెయ్యవచ్చు. GPL, GFDL రెండూ ఒకే లైసెన్సు కాదు; వాటిని కలిపే లింకు, వాటిని సృష్టించిన ఫ్రీ సాఫ్టువేరు ఫౌండేషనే.

Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom (HM Government).svg This work is licensed under the Open Government Licence v1.0.

The Open Government License covers most material produced under Crown Copyright by UK government agencies that have their intellectual properties managed centrally by the Controller of Her Majesty’s Stationery Office (HMSO). It may also apply to works produced by other public sector bodies, if the institution in question has chosen to explicitly place them under the OGL. A number of government institutions are exempt from the central authority of the HMSO and manage their own copyrights themselves. This applies, for instance, to the Ministry of Defence, the Government Art Collection, the Ordnance Survey and some others. Works published by these bodies may not be under the OGL, unless they have been explicitly offered under its terms. [1][2]


This template should only be used on image pages.
Public domain This work is in the public domain because it is an Ordnance Survey map over 50 years old. Ordnance Survey maps are covered by crown copyright which in this case expires 50 years after publication. Ordnance Survey does however ask that they be credited and that the date of publication be given.
Any ancillary rights gained through the creation of the electronic version are granted as freely usable under any circumstances.


The copyright of this work has expired in the European Union because it was published more than 70 years ago without a public claim of authorship (anonymous or pseudonymous), and no subsequent claim of authorship was made in the 70 years following its first publication.

Notice to uploaders: To use this template, the image must meet both of the following two conditions: (1) published over 70 years ago, and (2) the original author's actual identity was not publicly disclosed in connection with this image within 70 years following its publication. Images that lack either of these two conditions should not use this template. Reasonable evidence must be presented that the author's name (e.g., the original photographer, portrait painter) was not published with a claim of copyright in conjunction with the image within 70 years of its original publication. Furthermore, as Wikipedia is hosted in the USA, this tag alone is not sufficient copyright tagging. A second tag must be supplied to indicate why the image is in the public domain in the USA as well.

Public domain This image consists entirely of a raster rendering (e.g. PNG) of characters from one or more typefaces.
As such, it is ineligible for copyright in the United States and therefore is in the public domain.


This does not apply to vector format images of fonts, such as SVG.
Also, this may not apply in jurisdictions outside of the United States.

Public license This work is excerpted from an official document of the United Nations. The policy of this organisation is to keep most of its documents in the public domain in order to disseminate "as widely as possible the ideas (contained) in the United Nations Publications".

Pursuant to UN Administrative Instruction ST/AI/189/Add.9/Rev.2, available in English, only these documents are in the public domain worldwide:

  1. Official records (proceedings of conferences, verbatim and summary records, ...)
  2. United Nations documents issued with a UN symbol
  3. Public information material designed primarily to inform the public about United Nations activities (not including public information material that is offered for sale, which, if in the public domain in the United States due to no copyright renewal or notice as required, should be instead tagged {{PD-old}} or other applicable template.).
Public domain This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States Federal Government under the terms of Title 17, Chapter 1, Section 105 of the US Code. See Copyright.
Note: This only applies to works of the Federal Government and not to the work of any individual U.S. state, territory, commonwealth, county, municipality, or any other subdivision.

In specific cases, patent applicants and holders may claim copyright in portions of those documents. In those specific cases, applicants are required to identify the portions that are protected under copyright, and are additionally required to state the following within the body of the application and patent: [7][8][9](archived)

A portion of the disclosure of this patent document contains material which is subject to (copyright or mask work) protection. The (copyright or mask work) owner has no objection to the facsimile reproduction by any­one of the patent document or the patent disclosure, as it appears in the Patent and Trademark Office patent file or records, but otherwise reserves all (copyright or mask work) rights whatsoever.

The original patent should be checked for the presence of such language before an assumption is made that the contents are in the public domain. This template can be replaced by {{PD-US-patent-no notice}} in such cases.

This image was created in Australia and is now classified as being in the public domain because its term of copyright has now expired. According to the Australian Copyright Council (ACC), Information Sheet G023v16 (Duration of copyright) (Feb 2012), generally copyright has expired as follows:
Type of material Copyright has expired if ...
 A  Photographs or other works published anonymously, under a pseudonym or the creator is unknown: taken or published prior to 1 జనవరి 1955
 B  Photographs (except A): taken prior to 1 జనవరి 1955
 C  Artistic works (except A & B): the creator died before 1 జనవరి 1955
 D  Published editions1 (except A & B): first published more than 25 years ago
 E  Commonwealth or State government held2 photographs or engravings: first published more than 50 years ago, or if made before 1 May 1969, first made more than 50 years ago

1means the typographical arrangement and layout of a published work. eg. newsprint.
2held means where a government is the copyright holder as well as would have held copyright but reached some other agreement with the creator.

This image is in the public domain in Australia and possibly other jurisdictions. This is because it is a work of the Australian Government and was published more than 50 years ago. The copyright has therefore expired. [10]

PD-icon.svg This photograph is subject to the provisions of Italy's Law for the Protection of Copyright and Neighbouring Rights because it was either created in Italy or may be considered an Italian work within the meaning of Italian law (Art. 189).

Italian law makes an important distinction between "works of photographic art" and "simple photographs" (Art. 2, § 7). Works of photographic art are protected for 70 years after the author's death (Art. 32 bis), whereas simple photographs are only protected for a period of 20 years from creation (Art. 92).

Simple photographs are defined by the law as "images of persons, or of aspects, elements or events of natural or social life, obtained by photographic or analogous processes, including reproductions of works of figurative art and stills of cinematographic film" (Art. 87).

If this image meets the definition of a simple photograph and was created prior to 1976 and published without a copyright notice before 1 March 1989, then it was out of copyright in Italy on the date of restoration (January 1, 1996) and is currently in the public domain in the United States (17 U.S.C. § 104A).

A portion of the disclosure of this patent document contains material which is subject to (copyright or mask work) protection. The (copyright or mask work) owner has no objection to the facsimile reproduction by any­one of the patent document or the patent disclosure, as it appears in the Patent and Trademark Office patent file or records, but otherwise reserves all (copyright or mask work) rights whatsoever.

PD-icon.svg This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the State of California that was in any way "involved in the governmental process" and "prepared, owned, used or retained by any state or local agency" or officer. That work is available pursuant to court interpretation of the Sunshine Amendment of the Constitution of California, and/or the California Public Records Act (CPRA), which contained no relevant provision(s) for copyright.

It is not copyrighted because (lacking an exception in statute like those for works of the Department of Toxic Substances Control or works of certain colleges established by statute) "unrestricted disclosure is required".

See County of Santa Clara v. CFAC. In brief, the "CPRA contains no provisions either for copyrighting [this work] or for conditioning its release on an end user or licensing agreement by the requester. The record thus must be disclosed as provided in the CPRA, without any such conditions or limitations." Subject to general disclaimers.

      Thank you for uploading [[:{{{1}}}]]. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

      If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice?

      Thanks for uploading [[:{{{1}}}]]. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

      As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

      If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after ~~~~~. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice?{{subst:empty template|
