Example

{{PD/US|author's death year}}

For example, for someone dying in 1945

{{PD/US|1945}}

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published before January 1, 1927.


The author died in 1945, so this work is also in the public domain in countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 75 years or less. This work may also be in the public domain in countries and areas with longer native copyright terms that apply the rule of the shorter term to foreign works.

 

To create dynamic copyright messaging that will update as time passes and stay accurate when the author's death year (ADY) is known. Direction for including ADY is in each template document.
