This is a faithful photographic reproduction of an original two-dimensional work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

This applies to Australia, the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years.


Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years, Russia has 74 years for some authors. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term.

Documentation


This template is for use by the uploader of a photograph taken by somebody else to assert that the photograph can have no independent copyright as it is simply a faithful reproduction of an old, public domain, two-dimensional work of art. For this purpose, 'faithful reproduction' includes even a photograph taken perhaps from several meters away from the work of art, with carefully-arranged and professional lighting, filters and so on. Use of this template means that according to the position of the WMF Board such 'faithful reproduction' photographs are considered to be in the public domain, regardless of how much skill and effort went into taking the picture.

A 'faithful reproduction' in this sense may differ from a purely mechanical copy such as a photocopy or a scan taken directly from the original. Images that are no more than mere photocopies or scans directly taken from an old original artwork can be labeled {{PD-old}}. This template is only for use when the initial reproduction was by means of a photograph, rather than a scan or a photocopy.

The template takes one parameter to indicate why the original work of art is in the public domain (if no parameter is given, {{PD-old}} is assumed). If you use a parameter, it must correspond to a public domain tag. Do not use as a parameter a copyright license tag such as such as GFDL. See Category:PD Art for existing categories.

For examples of the tag in use, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag#Usage examples.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Cat:PD-Art (PD-old default) if no parameter specified and default {{PD-old}} is supplied by the PD-Art template.
