What's not allowed on Commons?Edit

You can't upload work created or based on the work of others, including photographs of that work. That means:

  • logos
  • CD/DVD covers
  • promotional photos
  • screenshots of TV shows, movies, DVDs, or software
  • drawings of characters from comics, TV, or movies
  • most pictures you find online

Note that the rules for images and text are the same: If it's copyrighted material that you didn't create, you can't copy and use it, even if you cite the source.
