Display a copyright status icon next to the license fpr "non-commercial use only" files
Closed, DuplicatePublic


This is a feature request, not a bug.

  1. Go to an file without an free licence on an wiki with EDP policy. - example: [[w:is:Mynd:Vörumerki Símans.png]]
  2. View the file in MultimediaViewer.
  3. Next to the file name I would like to see an logo for an licence with the text "No-Commercial use only" next to it. (mentioning Fair use here would not be ideal, since it is specific to US and Ukraine).

Here is an idea how I see this could be done techically. Show the logo on files that have an licence with an licencesetpl_short machine readable data class that contains the text "commercial use only". See [[commons:Commons:Machine-readable_data]] if you don´t have a clue of what I am writing about.

IMO there are two ways to this that are generic enough to be worth doing:

  1. come up with a "non-free" logo and show that for all applicable licenses.
  2. add machine-readable markup for the copyright status icon.

I would go with the first if we can come up with a good icon - trying to show some random user-provided image usually does not end well.

CC-ing Pau for thoughts.

Mass-removing the Multimedia tag from MediaViewer tasks, as this is now being worked on by the Reading department, not Editing's Multimedia team.
