You have been blocked temporarily from editing for violating copyright policy by copying text or images into Wikipedia from another source without verifying permission. You have been previously warned that this is against policy, but have persisted. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

  • This template has been carefully designed based on guidelines by the user warnings project.
  • Please refer to the index of message templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending. Note: Only administrators can block users; adding a block template does not constitute a block. See RFAA to request that a user be blocked.
  • Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:Uw-copyrightblock}} rather than {{Uw-copyrightblock}}.
    • Although this template must be substituted in the user talk page, it has also been designed to display properly when substitution is not possible.
  • This template uses a parser function. To give greater detail to your message, you may specify: the block duration, a specific reason for the block, and auto-include your signature.
    {{subst:Uw-copyrightblock|anon=yes|time=Duration|reason=For a different reason|notalk=yes|page=Targeted page|sig=yes}}
  • Notes:
    • If you do not set a block expiry, replace time=Duration with indef=yes.
    • An already indefinite block template does not require the time or indef parameters.
    • If not blocking an anonymous user, omit the anon parameter.
    • Include the page parameter to refer to a page on which the conduct supporting the block occurred.
    • The notalk parameter should always be omitted unless the user cannot edit their own talk page.
    • The optional for parameter can be used if the word "for" before the block reason doesn't grammatically work. For example, if for=per is written, the block notice will say "blocked from editing per". Don't use this parameter if you don't want to change the word "for".
  • See also Template:Blocked user for user page notices.
