WS:COORD

This table is a summary of the different policies and technical solutions used in the Wikisource subdomains. Its goal is to facilitate comparisons and to increase users' awareness of the different options. Certain cells are colored to highlight important local policies, especially those in red for more restrictive ones.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. noc: InitialiseSettings.php variable "$wgImportSources"
  2. All works published before 1923 worldwide are in the public domain in the USA even if still copyright-restricted in their home countries. Exceptions may apply in the 9th Circuit for non-American works published since 1 July 1909 per http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm#Footnote_12 by Peter Hirtle. This column indicates whether such works are allowed on a Wikisource subdomain when considering wmf:Resolution:Licensing_policy with respect to the laws of any countries where any project content is predominantly accessed. If not, ws.org temporarily hosts these works and will transfer them to the subdomains when appropriate, while footnotes of this column also show the general copyright lengths of restrictive countries and areas.
  3. Certain works, usually still copyrighted in 1996 at home, may still be copyrighted in the USA even if in the public domain at home now.
  4. Czech law is life + 70 years. This has not been discussed, so we use the unclear but very strong practice on the cs.wiki in the moment.
  5. copyright remains until 70 years after author's death, see here
  6. Finnish law is life + 70 years. Kansainvälinen (The Internationale in Finnish) dated in 1905, whose last surviving author died in 1964, was deleted; suggesting the de facto policy is to prohibit such works.
  7. Limited exceptions apply.
  8. life + 70 years
  9. Japanese law is life + 50 years. Locally deleting インターナショナル (The Internationale in Japanese) dated in 1922 whose author died in 1978 suggests the de facto policy.
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 no policy
  11. Norwegian law is life + 70 years. The question hasn't been discussed yet. So far following Norwegian law.
  12. Polish law is life + 70 years
  13. per Russia's law (The policy) under discussion for now.
  14. Swedish & Finnish law provide life + 70 years
  15. E.g.th:Boar's Head Carol
  16. Vietnamese law provides life + 50 years.
  17. Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, and Taiwan all legally provide life + 50 years. Whether the content of Chinese Wikisource is predominantly accessed in Singapore (life + 70 years) is less clear, but works in the public domain in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, and Taiwan, but not Singapore are in collapsible pages so Singaporeans will see the copyright warning before opening the texts.
