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


This template is an alternative to {{Non-free use rationale}}. Both are meant to facilitate creating non-free use rationales with the necessary components. Please read Wikipedia:Non-free content for the relevant policies.

This template is used by the experimental Wikipedia:File Upload Wizard. Its parameter fields are slightly different from those of {{Non-free use rationale}} because they are designed to match the data produced by the upload questionnaire. They are also designed to correspond somewhat more closely to the original criteria as defined in WP:NFCC. The wizard will fill in some of the fields with standard values for some types of non-free files, but will prompt the uploader for specific input in those cases where rationale elements are typically not predictable and must be explained individually.


If you want to use this template manually, you can find its parameters below. Don't forget to add a separate non-free file copyright tag, such as {{Non-free fair use}}, {{Non-free logo}}, {{Non-free book cover}} etc.

A description of the copyrighted material.
The original author and/or copyright holder of the non-free work.
The immediate source, i.e. where you found this file.
(optional) The original source, i.e. where and how this non-free work was first published. Important in some cases where parts of the fair use justification may depend on this information, e.g. in the case of some historical photographs.
(optional) The date of publication.
The exact name of the Wikipedia article in which the media is to be used (without the [[  ]] brackets).
What function this file will serve in the article. This explanation must make it clear how and why the file will significantly increase the reader's understanding of the topic, in such a way that its absence would be detrimental to the article (cf. WP:NFCC#8). Do not copy generic rationale verbiage from some templated rationales elsewhere. State in clear, plain words what this particular file will be doing in this particular article. Be specific and concrete.
Why there couldn't be a freely licensed replacement that would adequately serve the same purpose (cf. WP:NFCC#1). Please bear in mind that this is not merely about replacements that actually exist and are readily available, but also about the mere possibility that such a replacement could realistically be created.
(optional) If necessary, explain why it wouldn't be possible to adequately treat the encyclopedic content with freely licensed text alone.
Add any necessary explanation how there won't be more non-free content used than necessary. Minimality means: Use low-resolution files rather than high-resolution files; don't use a larger portion of a work than necessary or an entire work if only a small portion would be sufficient; don't use more non-free items if a single one would be sufficient.
i.e. "Respect for commercial opportunities": explain why our use of the file will not unduly infringe on any commercial interests of its copyright holders, by competing with the work's original market role.
Other information
any other information that is relevant to the sourcing, copyright information and fair use justification.
