If you want to upload multiple images using the New wizard, click here. Unfortunately, large numbers of images are removed from Wikipedia within hours or days of being uploaded due to inappropriate, insufficient or inaccurate copyright information. By diligently completing the above steps, you can save yourself and others a great deal of time and ensure that whatever you upload will remain a part of Wikipedia's knowledge base. If you upload a file with a "fair use" designation, be sure to rely on competent copyright law authority; if there is any question about its status, you are likely to be required to defend its ongoing inclusion in Wikipedia in a timely manner. Images uploaded that fail to meet the criteria specified by Wikipedia will be promptly removed. Please don't take removal of an image that is not properly documented, too large in size, or potentially offensive to others personally.
Welcome to the File Upload Wizard. This page is for uploading images and other media files to Wikipedia. When you click the link below, the wizard will guide you through a questionnaire prompting you for the appropriate copyright and sourcing information for each file. Please ensure you understand copyright and the image use policy before proceeding. Sorry, in order to use this uploading script and to upload files, you need to be logged in with your named account.
There are at least 3 different issues we need to cover. I hope I can make this as simple as possible:. Fair use is a legal doctrine which provides that for certain classes of use of non-free copyrighted material — such as for educational, criticism, news reporting and other purposes — there is an exception to the rule that the material cannot be used without infringing on the owner's copyright, even though you don't have their permission. Certain standards must be met to fall within the bounds of the doctrine's exception.
