{{No licence}}

{{No licence|optional comment}}

{{No licence|subcategory=uploader notified 2024, April}} to also put image into specified category, in this case into Category:Media without a license - uploader notified 2024, April.

Note: "uploader notified" subcategories can be used only if uploader was notified that their file has some problems.

We have a number of templates that seem to be based on Wikipedia ones, whose use are documented here on Wikipedia. The Unknown template was used both as a table cell template and as a license template for uploaded files with an "I am not sure choice" for the license, so has been modified to work as before in namespaces other than File, and to show "Unknown license" in the File namespace.

It adds page to Category:Media without a license

Note that there are thousands of files where this template would be applicable. In case of adding this - consider notifying uploader on their talk page and asking to clarify licensing status. Category:Media without a license has potentially useful template of such request.
