Template:Do not move to Commons

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template must be accompanied by the appropriate copyright tag. It often accompanies {{PD/US}}.

It takes an optional argument expiry that hides the message at the end of the given year. For example, if a work by an author who died in 1950 was first published in a country whose copyright term is life plus 70 years, expiry would be 2020, and the message would automatically disappear in 2021, when the image would be automatically placed into Category:Media now suitable for Commons.


{{Do not move to Commons}}
Always shows the template.
{{Do not move to Commons|expiry=_last year of copyright_}}
{{Do not move to Commons|expiry=2020}}
Shows the message until December 31, 2020, but hides it starting January 1, 2021; so this is the last year of the year of copyright
{{Do not move to Commons|why{{=}}the file is not Public Domain in the originating country}}
Shows an explanation in the box. You can use both "expiry" and "why".

Use of this template by default categorises work into Category:Media not suitable for Commons. The categorisation can be overridden with use of the parent = yes. This would be used on an images that is in a category for the work, and that category utilises this template and collects the Media not suitable for Commons catgegorisation.
