This template should be used for files whose authors died more than 70 years ago. In case precise day of death is known you should use {{PD-old-auto}} or {{PD-old-auto-expired}}

The template automatically sets the following categories: Author died more than 70 years ago public domain images



This template is NOT redundant to {{PD-old}} and should not be redirected to or from it. PD-old is a generic template. It is for old works where US and European Union copyright expired while it was meant for worldwide public domain after more than 100 years after authors' deaths. This PD-old-70 specifically gives the reason why the image is PD but even works published from 1926 to 1977 are copyrighted in the USA for up to 95 years since publication rather than life + 70 years.

The template takes no parameters.
