Usage[edit]

Usage: {{PD-posthumous|year when a work was posthumously published}}

This tag is to serve countries and areas copyrighting posthumous works based on how many years after posthumous publication to copyright. Please also use a tag to indicate the copyright license in the USA, such as {{Pd/1923}}, {{Pd/1996}}, {{PD-US-no-notice}}, {{PD-US-no-notice-post-1977}}, or {{PD-US-no-renewal}}. All of these five tags allow the author's year of death to be entered, so the copyright status in most countries and areas based on how many years after author's death to copyright is given, whenever they have no special posthumous copyright terms.

Do not use this tag alone, as it does not readily specify the copyright license in the USA where Wikisource server is hosted.
