I noticed that there are many GFDL images, but some seem to be taken from copyrighted sources (e.g File:Dom1.gif and File:Han1 edited.jpg). Are you sure they can be uploaded under the GFDL license? Canderous Ordo 20:44, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

  • I fixed the two images. They were simply tagged incorrectly. We're currently working on reviewing all images on the wiki (it's a mess at the moment due to negligence), so bear with us. =) --Imp 22:17, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
    • It should be noted that many of the images you have here can't be released under free licenses such as GFDL or Creative Commons, because they qualify as "derivative work" (for instance, File:NPOV.png and File:Wiki.png use copyrighted symbols like the Rebel Alliance logo, the Galactic Empire logo, and the Death Star). See also Derivative works on Wikimedia commons for other details. Unfortunately there appears to be no way to have Star Wars pictures under a free license, and only fair-use can be applied to those pictures. — Canderous Ordo 18:33, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
