Template parameters

ParameterDescriptionDefaultStatus
countryCountry of first publication. Use English country names. Simultaneous publication (publication at the same time or within 30 days) in multiple countries is not handled. Not all countries are handled (template will give error if country not handled).emptyrequired
publicationdate of first publication. Either this or creation date is needed. For unpublished works, leave blank and set formalities=unpublished.emptyoptional
creationdate of creation of workemptyoptional
deathyearauthor's year of death. Usually needed.emptyoptional
PD-on-URAA-dateWas the work in the public domain on the relevant URAA entry date? Template will try to auto-calculate this conservatively (needs deathyear to do so); override with "yes" if the answer is wrong.emptyoptional
formalitiesIf the work was published between 1923 and 1977, and US copyright formalities were not complied with, set this to
  • no-notice (for US works published without copyright notice)
  • no-renewal (for US works where copyright not renewed - for pre-1964 publication only, as renewal not required after this date).
  • no-formalities (for non-US works published in the US after more than 30 days, where US formalities were not complied with)

Template will tell you if setting this would place the work in the public domain - don't worry about it in every case. See Commons:Hirtle chart.

For unpublished works, leave publication blank and set formalities=unpublished.
