Usage

This template adds the Images published abroad that are in the public domain in the United States category.

IMPORTANT FEATURE

Using

{{PD-US-1923-abroad|out_of_copyright_in=YEAR}}

will automatically ask for the image to be moved to commons at the appropriate time. Remember that copyright expires at the start of the year after. For instance, an author who died in 1946 in a country with a copyright term of life+70 goes out of copyright - not 70 years after his date of death in 2016, but at the start of 2017.


Example of usage:

{{PD-US-1923-abroad|out_of_copyright_in=2017}}

For an author who died in 1946 in a life+70 country.

Alternative, shorter usage:

{{PD-US-1923-abroad|2017}}

Same circumstances.
