< Wikipedia:File copyright tags  (Redirected from Wikipedia:Image copyright tags/Non-free content)
Copyrighted media files may be used in Wikipedia articles on a limited basis, provided they satisfy both the legal test for fair use and Wikipedia's own guidelines for non-free content, found at Wikipedia:Non-free content. Each image or audio file has a file page where any fair-use concerns must be addressed.
Please note: Copyrighted images that can reasonably be replaced by free images may not be used on Wikipedia.
For non-free content, each image page must include:
  • A copyright tag to claim fair use. Wikipedia's file upload function and wizard each help editors choose an appropriate tag. A list is below. Non-free images that meet Wikipedia's policy but do not fit into any of the categories below should use the tag {{Non-free fair use in|Article}}.
  • A statement describing the source of the media.
  • A separate "non-free use rationale" for each use in a Wikipedia article. Instructions, guidelines, samples, and templates are available at Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline.
