Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


If a text page is a likely copyright violation, replacing the text with the following will result in explanations and links about dealing with copyright issues:

{{subst:copyvio |url=source(s)}}

This template must always be substituted.

  • If the entire page, including all previous versions of it, is a blatant copyright violation, do not use this template and do not blank the page. Tag with {{db-copyvio}} instead.
  • If only part of the page is a likely copyright violation, you may replace only that section. The template by default will blank all content following it; to limit the blanking, place {{Copyviocore bottom}} at the point where copyright concerns end.
  • This template is not for use with images. Blatant image copyright violations should be tagged with {{Db-f9}}. Otherwise, suspected image violations should be tagged with {{Ffd}}. If this template is used on a page in the File namespace, it will transclude Template:Copyvio error above the notice.
  • Separate multiple URLs with spaces.
