Welcome, and thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. An image you have uploaded was marked as having been released under a free license by the copyright holder, but no evidence of this release has been provided. If notice of the release is on the copyright holder's website, please link to it in the image summary. If the release is a response to a request for copyright permission, the full request and response must be forwarded to OTRS. If you need help in composing a request, the example requests for permission may be helpful. Thank you.

{{subst:uw-imagepermission|Image}} references a specific image
{{subst:uw-imagepermission|Image|Additional text}} adds text onto the end of the message instead of "Thank you"
{{subst:uw-imagepermission|Image|license=License}} replace "under a free license" with the specific license (mis)used
{{subst:uw-imagepermission|Image|license=License|Additional text}} as above, with additional text
  • This template should only be used when the uploader claims the image has been released under a free license by the copyright holder. If the uploader does not provide any justification, {{uw-copyright}} is more appropriate. If the uploader claims to have permission to use the image on Wikipedia only or when the permission granted by the copyright holder does not meet Wikipedia's free content guidelines, inform them that the permission is inadequate and they must either obtain release under a free license or justify use as non-free content.
  • This standardized template conforms to guidelines by the user warnings project. You may discuss the visual appearance of these standardized templates (e.g. the image in the top-left corner) at the user warning talk page.
  • 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.
  • Please remember to substitute the template using {{subst:uw-imagepermission}} rather than {{uw-imagepermission}}.
  • This template uses a parser function. To give greater detail to your message, you may add the image and some additional text to the end of the template. If such image or additional text includes a URL or anything which includes an equal sign ("="), it may break the parser's function unless you prefix the image or the text with a named template parameter. Use "1=" if the article contains an equals sign and use "2=" if the additional text contains an equals sign (such as a URL).
