Fred Durst photo
Hi there, Sourcecode! Can you please tell me how you determined that the image Image:Fred-Durst.jpg is in the public domain? I can't see any mention of it at the site you mentioned . Thanks! --Diberri | Talk 14:58, Sep 12, 2004 (UTC)
- Contrary to popular belief, an author (or photographer, artist, etc.) does not have to explicitly copyright his/her work in order for it to be copyrighted. That is, copyright is implied unless the work is expressly placed in the public domain. So unless you can find a notice that the image is in the public domain (or is already licensed under the GFDL), Image:Fred-Durst.jpg cannot be used on Wikipedia. --Diberri | Talk 16:09, Sep 12, 2004 (UTC)
I have added Image:On-The-Road-manuscript.jpg to Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images. As Diberri noted above, the absence of a copyright notice does not necessarily mean the image is in the public domain. Taco Deposit | Talk-o to Taco 20:15, Feb 18, 2005 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
