I've written a policy regarding fair use images on the Polish edition
of Wikinews. We'll be actually working based on the Polish law - hence
the title of the page is "Permitted use", not "Free use".
To quickly summarize the main points of our policy:
* Every "permitted use" image must contain a link to the original source
* Only non-free files can be uploaded to Wikinews - the rest should go
* We can upload only the following:
** Company/organizations/etc. logos
** Press attachments
** Screenshots (or parts of it, so they won't be copyright infrigements)
Of course, we won't allow any derivative works uploaded to Wikinews
based on copyrighted material.
Well, I think this is all. Our users are already leaving comments on
the article's talk page, and from what I heard on IRC - they all
Here's a link to the policy:
