Licenses

To normalize how art usage permission and license information appear in the {{artist}} infobox template, we make use of this helper template. It defines a few specific license names (listed below), and translate each one of them into predetermined text.

  • all: Use this when the Coppermind has full permission to use all of the artist's work (related to Brandon Sanderson), past and future alike.
  • some: Use this when the Coppermind has permission to only specific artworks or when new uploads require explicit permission by the artist.
  • none: Use this when the Coppermind does not have permission to use any of the artist's works.
  • DATE: If the value is neither one of these, the template assumes it has been handed a cutoff date, with artworks before it being allowed on the Coppermind, and ones after it requiring an explicit permission. The value here is re-formatted as MMM DD, YYYY.
  • official: Use this when the Coppermind can only use the official work from this artist, such as covers, interior illustrations or posters.
