Are Wikimedia Commons images copyrighted?
Probably not, but they may be. You should read the image’s file description page to learn whether the image is copyrighted and the terms of its license.
If you have questions about how you can properly contribute to the Wikimedia Commons or how to legally use works in the Commons in your own works, feel free to contact New Media Rights via our contact form to find out whether you qualify for free or reduced fee legal services.

In our new book, we focus on issues you may encounter from the inception of your business to the moment (that hopefully doesn’t happen) you get a nasty lawyer letter for the first time.
You’ll learn how to form your business, protect your intellectual property, and avoid problems when launching your project. Taking a few simple steps upfront to protect your business or project can save time and money down the road. Don't Panic has also been used in undergraduate & graduate classes nationwide to teach business and legal concepts to non-lawyers. Professors can request a FREE evaluation copy
