Hello,

This also applies to works published outside of USA. See [1]. And actually it is contradictory to Help:Public domain. Regards, Yann 22:40, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

{{editprotected}}[edit]

(Edit this section to get it in the correct formatting (The nowiki tags remove all carriage returns))

{{license |image = PD-icon.svg |text = {{#switch:{{NAMESPACE}}|Author=''Some'' or all works by this author are|This work is}} in the '''[[w:public domain|public domain]]''' in the United States because {{#switch:{{NAMESPACE}}|Author=they were|it was}} originally published in the United States before January 1, 1923. {{#switch:{{NAMESPACE}}|Author=They|It}} may be copyrighted outside the U.S. (see [[Help:Public domain]]). <br> ---- Also, {{#switch:{{NAMESPACE}}|Author=these works|this}} may be in the public domain in countries with longer copyright terms if that country follows the "'''[[w:rule of the shorter term|rule of the shorter term]]'''".|}}

All contents after that should be the same as before. 68.39.174.238 17:31, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

MOS violation[edit]

the </br> is useless, unnecessary, and extremely confusing. Delete.24.65.69.8 00:39, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

The "<br/>" at the top is unusual. I'll ask Yann why he added it. John Vandenberg (chat) 01:44, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
I removed the </br> and remplaced it with margin-top: 1em; in the {{license}} template. Yann (talk) 09:11, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Please revert your edit with regarding margin-top: 1em;. The extra white space confuses readers and is unnecessary.24.65.69.8 01:39, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
Please look at Hatha Yoga Pradipika. You can see practically 3 lines of confusing space between the bottom of the text and the start of the top of the template. This is not the case with other pages in wikisource. Please remove margin-top: 1em;.24.65.69.8 00:52, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
On the contrary, this is much better than when the template is glued to the text. And this is only one line now. Yann (talk) 01:03, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
The space is creating more hurt then help. All other pages on wikisource, and for that matter, other wikiprojects, have category wikitext AFTER the template. Hatha Yoga Pradipika is not any more special. I reverted your change on Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Please remove the space. Or change the protection so I can remove it.24.65.69.8 00:28, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Rename to PD-US-expired[edit]

Rename to PD-US-expired, because now expired before 1924 Shooke (talk) 18:47, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Pages displaying out of date templates[edit]

Many works using this template still say "This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published before January 1, 1924." (ex: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Stranger_%28Kipling%29 ) Is there any way to get these to update to the new public domain entry year? As new works will now be entering the public domain annually, this will become an ongoing problem without a fix --InexplicableSatsuma (talk) 00:58, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Why does the text need to change? If you would like to be part of the discussion, it has been happening in the Scriptorium. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:01, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
Will head over there then, but, in short, because the work is in the public domain because it was published before 1923, not 1924. If we want to avoid the year entirely we can just say "this work is in the public domain because it was published in |year|" --InexplicableSatsuma (talk) 01:08, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
