Country-specific license tags show the reason why a file uploaded to Wikimedia Commons is in the public domain in its country of origin. If a file was created or first published outside the United States, another tag should show why it is in the public domain in the United States. A file may be in the public domain in its country of origin based on the date of death of the author, date of publication, type of work, organization that commissioned the work and so on.

See Commons:Copyright rules by territory for details of country-specific rules. See Category:License tags by country for a complete list of country-specific license tags including public domain, free use and descriptive license tags.

The list below gives information "transcluded" from page sections that give the copyright tags specific to each country or territory. It may be incomplete. Tags are also given for the United Nations and the European Union.

Ukraina

  • {{PD-Ukraine}} is in effect towards works first published before January 1, 1951, and the creator (if known) died before that date). This is the effect of the retroactive Ukrainian copyright law of 1993 and the copyright from 50 to 70 years in 2001.). The final conclusion is #.4 in Chapter VI Ukrainian Copyright Law:

#.4. It shall be established that as from the day on which this Law enters into force, the terms of copyright protection, stipulated in Article 28 of this Law and parts 1 and 2 of Article 44 of this Law, shall apply in all cases where the 50-year period of copyright validity after the author's death or the period of validity of related rights has not expired prior to the date of entry into force of this Law.

A Ukrainian or Soviet work that is in the public domain in Ukraine according to this rule is in the public domain in the U.S. only if it was in the public domain in Ukraine in 1995, e.g. if it was published before 1945 and the creator died before that year, and no copyright was registered in the U.S. This is the combined effect of the retroactive Ukrainian copyright law, Ukraine's joining the Berne Convention in 1995, and of 17 USC 104A with its critical date of January 1, 1996.[9]
