Churches of Rome Wiki

GFDL or public domain images are strongly preferred on Wikia. Copyright-violating images are subject to deletion. Copyright information must be added to the image description page of every uploaded image.

Images may also be licensed under a compatible license, such as Creative Commons BY-SA. Images must be free for anyone to use or modify for any purpose.

Fair use images[]

While fair use is theoretically acceptable on Wikia, they are not allowed on this project due to the following reasons:

  • Fair use is a concept specific to US copyright law; most images of interest to this site are likely to be protected in Italy or another country in the European Union causing a potential for legal action.
  • Fair use images must be small, low-resolution versions, and will usually not be of sufficient quality to use to depict works of art.
  • Content on the site should be free for all to use. If fair use images are allowed here, a hotel, travel company or church in Rome who wishes to print pages for their visitors must first remove images.

License tags[]

All images must be tagged with the appropriate license. Any license tag at Commons:License tag is acceptable, but not all of them have been created here.

The following tags have been created here:

Creative Commons and GFDL licenses can be combined with {{self}} or {{self2}} if you are the author of the image, for instance {{self|Cc-sa-1.0}} or {{self2|Cc-by-sa-2.5,2.0,1.0|GFDL}}
