Usage[edit]

This template is intended to be used on Author: pages to display the first parameter as a Wikipedia link until the year of the second parameter, when it is shown as a red link because its copyright has expired.

e.g. on Author:Thorne Smith

Parameters[edit]

1st unnamed param (optional)
Name to use for this work's link. Optional.
until (or 2nd unnamed param) (optional)
Year when the U.S. copyright is believed to expire. If not given, this will categorise into Category:Pages claiming copyright without date.
extra (optional)
Extra information about the work (e.g. film by Joe Bloggs). This will go in parentheses after the title.
pubyear (optional)
Year of publication. This will go in parentheses after the title and extra data, if there is any.
renewal (optional)
If the copyright was extended by a renewal of U.S. copyright, use this to include the renewal number ("R" followed by digits)
wikipedia (optional)
Name of corresponding article on Wikipedia, if the article exists
wikilivres (optional)
Name of this work on Wikilivres, if it can be found there

Examples[edit]

Example 1[edit]

* {{copyright-until|Topper|2022}}

appears as:

  • Topper — Copyrighted in the United States until 2022

In the year 2022, it will appear as:

Example 2[edit]

* {{copyright-until|Topper|2022|pubyear=1926}}

appears as:

  • Topper (1926) — Copyrighted in the United States until 2022


In the year 2022, it will appear as:

Note that because "Topper" has a Wikipedia entry, it can be linked to with:

* {{copyright-until|Topper|2022|wikipedia=Topper (books)}}


which appears as

  • Topper — Copyrighted in the United States until 2022

Example 3[edit]

* {{copyright until|Desire Under the Elms|wikipedia=Desire Under the Elms|wikilivres=Desire Under the Elms|renewal=R93931|pubyear=1925|until=2021}} — This complex example creates a link to a Wikipedia page and a Wikilivres page, adds the publication date, and adds a note about the copyright expiration, thus:

Desire Under the Elms on Wikilivres.


Example 4 (no title parameter)[edit]

* {{copyright until||until=2021}}

This example doesn't have a title parameter, so the generated content starts at "Copyrighted in..."

  • Copyrighted in the United States until 2021

After 2021, nothing will be shown, but the page will still be categorised as above.

Example 5 (extra data)[edit]

* {{copyright until|Title|extra=film by Steven Spielberg|pubyear=1973|until=2021}}

  • Title (film by Steven Spielberg, 1973) — Copyrighted in the United States until 2021

This is useful when some versions of a work are still copyrighted but others aren't.

Categories[edit]

Listing work using this template will automatically list work in Category:Pages listing works with possibly expired copyrights allowing confirmation of copyright status and possible addition to Wikisource.
