Public Domain

CC Zero Sign Black.svg The creator(s) of this content have released it to the public domain. For jurisdictions where this is not permitted, it is released under the terms of the Creative Commons Zero Dedication.

{{Public Domain}} The public domain template, while redundant, is available to reduce any remaining ambiguity.

Wikipedia-Based Content

All imported content from Wikipedia needs its full revision history imported. Please contact an administrator to do this with you.

Wikipedia's W.svg CC Sign Black.svg This article is based on a Wikipedia article and is controlled by version 3.0 of Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA).

{{Wikipedia-CC}} Beginning in mid-2009 all content on Wikipedia was converted, by a process that will never be repeatable, from GFDL 1.2 to Creative Commons Attribution Sharealike.

Some legacy content at least initially was still here under the terms of GFDL 1.2. This is strongly deprecated. Only add new content from Wikipedia under this license if it was removed from Wikipedia prior to 15 June 2009. If the content is not presently available from Wikipedia, notify an administrator about this to request a listing of edits. A best practice for reconstructing unavailable histories with what can be acquired from the internet Archive is not yet developed.

Trademarked Logos

Logos are often needed for identification puposes. These are typically trademarks -- often registered trademarks, and this status needs to be acknowledged.

Some trademarks such as the Creative Commons or Compact Disc logos are used to identify that something is compliant with a set of industry or legal terms, and should only be used in connection with items or content under such situations.

This graphic is a logo. It is the trademark of an organization, business, corporation, government, or other entity that uses this for identification or other purposes. Its use may be under detailed restrictions.
