This is an image copyright tag. Add this template to an image to show its copyright status.

This template adds files to Category:Self-published work and to the subcategory of Category:User-created public domain files corresponding to the date specified in the |date= parameter. Also, if the |dw= parameter is omitted or empty, it adds the file to the category Category:All free media.

Usage

{{PD-self
|name       = <!-- Your name, assuming you are the copyright holder -->
|date       = {{#time: F Y}}
|dw         = <!-- set to "yes" to suppress categorization as free media, where the subject is non-free -->
}}

Parameters

  • |name= – your name, assuming you are the copyright holder. This parameter inserts your name at the start, like this: "I, YourName, the copyright holder of this work ..."
  • |date= – the date in the format Month YYYY. This is used to categorise the image by date in a subcategory of either Category:User-created public domain files or Category:User-created public domain files (no Commons). (The category that is used depends on the value of the no Commons parameter.)
  • |dw=yes – suppress categorization as free media, where the subject is non-free
