I object to this template being place on pages for images that clearly state that the image is available under the GFDL. --JWSchmidt 16:27, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I'm not sure why noncommercial CC licenses are disallowed. I create my images and hold my copyright so that I can eventually make money for me. Obviously, this is not my primary purpose in art-making. So why is non NC licenses? I am actually afraid of someone taking my image and selling it. Which would be commercial... Am I getting all of this? I could really use some explanation, even a statement of purpose on the noncommercial template. Eagleapex 23:12, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content, meaning that they may be used by anyone for any purpose, including commercial use and the publication of derivative works. This also means that anything released under NC or ND licenses are not allowed on here. See Commons:Project scope for more information. Zzyzx11 04:28, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Old comment, but this seems to have kicked off yet again.
There is no reason to delete content from Commons because it is under a CC-nc non-free licence. Only if it is only under such a licence (i.e. there is no non-free licence as a multi-licence alternative).
If content is also offered under the GFDL (as the original poster mentioned), then we're fine with it.
It's not clear what this template means. Does it mean "This content offers a non-commercial licence" (and so it shouldn't be deleted without checking, which is unlikely to be done) or does it mean "This content is only non-commercial, thus is non-free" (and so can be speedy deleted).
We cannot easily both 'bot-tag with this template, and use it for speedy deletions. If we are to use it for speedies (as is happening), then its use needs to be checked more carefully (i.e. the only licence was non-commercial, not "there is a non-commercial licence here"). As it is, we're speedy deleting stuff that was always freely licensed under the GFDL. Andy Dingley (talk) 16:04, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Category:Non commercialEdit

This category should be added to the template.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 17:13, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

I deleted that since it was empty and redundant with Category:Copyright violations. Rocket000 04:54, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Edit requestEdit

{{editprotected}} Due to recent changes (which I do not approve of but which I don't want to get into an edit war over) in {{Speedy delete text}} please change the template to {{Speedy delete text/en}} so it properly displays the deletion text again. -Nard the Bard 15:33, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Not done, but fixed the reason. Should now display correctly without destroying multi-language support in {{Speedy delete text}}. Best regards, -- ChrisiPK (Talk|Contribs) 23:15, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Edit request - Special:MyLanguageEdit

{{Edit request}}

Please copy this change I made to the sandbox to link licensing and multi licensing to the user's language using Special:MyLanguage/, rather than always linking to the English version.
