This file has been superseded by World copyright terms.svg. It is recommended to use the other file. Please note that deleting superseded images requires consent.

Reason to use the other file: "The proposed replacement image is newer but includes the legend in English; however this image is still from 2014 and needs some updates (see below), but does not include the legend translatable separately, so that it is language-neutral."
