Please do not upload any media files without knowing their author and copyright status (license).

They will be deleted.

See the Media copyright questions page for help determining a work's author or copyright status.

Why does Wikipedia need to know the author and license?

Wikipedia and its users need to know what they are allowed to do with a work. The copyright holder of a work (most often the author of the work) typically does not give permission for their work to be distributed and modified, so Wikipedia and its users must ensure that they have explicit permission to do so.
