WikiProject Copyright Cleanup is a project formed to address copyright concerns anywhere on Wikipedia. Among its primary activities are tagging potential copyright problems for further action, assisting contributors who do not understand copyright policies, following up on contributors who have mishandled copyrighted materials, and coordinating cleanup of largescale copyright problems. Everyone is welcome to join the project and contribute. Lists of members can be found in Category:WikiProject Copyright Cleanup members.

To join the project, you may add this userbox by placing {{User WikiProject Copyright Cleanup}} to your user page. You will automatically be added to the members category. You can also add yourself directly to that category without the userbox by placing [[Category:WikiProject Copyright Cleanup members|{{PAGENAME}}]] to your userpage. Even if you do not wish to list yourself in the category, your contributions to the project are welcome.
