What copyright are my contributions held under?

In keeping with the spirit of transparency and accessibility text contributions to WikiTribune are assumed to be under Creative Commons licences: CC-BY or CC-BY-SA unless specified for some other reason.

Images are generally CC-BY-SA 4.0 unless we specify that a licence-holder has retained the copyright, or the media is held under an alternative CC license (e.g. CC0).

Seven common types of Creative Commons licences/Wikipedia

Although text attribution should be made in the description field when you upload media, the full URL should always be put into the attribution field. Failure to do so will most likely result in the media being deleted. Works given under Creative Commons are for everyone to use and we must respect that by giving credit where credit is due.

If you would like to donate original media to us under a Creative Commons license, you can email your submission to [email protected] with your release and we will keep a copy for our records, and give appropriate credit under your name when uploading. This will be done by an administrator. If in doubt, double-check that an administrator uploaded the media file, or ask on a TALK page.

Please note that media is always held by the photographer unless otherwise specified. If you are a company wishing to give us an image, please email from an official address. If you have a contract transferring copyright from the original holder to yourself, we will need to see this as proof.

We care about the rights of copyright holders. If you believe you’ve seen copyright material on WikiTribune that you think should not be there or that we need to modify in some way or remove, please let us know at: [email protected] or tell us on the TALK page of this article on the top right.
