Copyright violation templates

If you see an article on Ballotpedia that you have some reason to believe may violate copyright, please add one of these templates to the top (beginning) of that article:

  • {{copyright}}: Use this template if you believe the article may contain copyrighted material.
  • {{wp-copy-vio}}: Use this template if you believe that the article violates copyright, and you also believe that the article was copied from another wiki.
The major indication that an article was copied from another wiki is that the article will include a plethora of red-links, including red-linked categories.
  • {{now-copyvio}}: Use this template if you strongly believe that the article infringes on copyright, and you believe it should be removed quickly.
  • {{Badimage}}: Use this template if you believe an image may be violating its usage license.

The template {{copyrightvio}} can also be add to a user's talk page to explain why you may have removed material that in your estimation violated or is likely to have violated copyright.
