How to cite copyright status: a special case[edit]

Please note that I heve an e-mail permission from a creator of a work of art to upload it in Wikipedia. Having read your procedures, I did not understand into which category this particular case fits. I will appreciate your help. --Echopapa echoromeo (talk) 07:14, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Templates PD-music and PD-audio[edit]

When I went to implement the closure of this CFD, I found that the category structure did not have any category for PD audio files. So I created Category:Public domain audio files, and also created the template {{PD-audio}} to populate it.

The existing {{PD-music}} was misleadingly named: it was actually only for images of music rather than for audio files of music, so I moved it to {{PD-music-image}}. I did not leave a redirect, because that would still allow {{PD-music}} to be used as if it still existed.

I hope that I have done this correctly. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 15:20, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

License Plate[edit]

I uploaded a sample plate image of a 2001 New York State license plate. However I would like some help as to whether this image needs to fair use tag and rationale as it was deleted from Commons. If it does need a tag please replace it with the proper one, thanks. –BuickCenturyDriver 21:08, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

I also uploaded NYLogoPlateCurved.JPG and am wondering if this okay as it is. –BuickCenturyDriver 21:08, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

I've added a copyright tag to NYLogoPlateCurved.JPG as the template design is from the DMV and should not be copied to Commons.. –BuickCenturyDriver 01:05, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Unifying {{out_of_copyright_in}} and {{Do not move to Commons}}[edit]

The templates {{out_of_copyright_in}} and {{Do not move to Commons}} are used for the same thing: tagging images where the copyright is about to expire in a few years. Their wording is slightly different though. I suggest deleting {{out_of_copyright_in}} (which is basically only used by {{pd-1923-abroad}} and can be substituted with {{Do not move to Commons}} there) and changing {{Do not move to Commons}} so that it displays when the image will be eligible to be moved to Commons. What do you think? Regards, -- ChrisiPK (talk) 00:16, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
