non public domain clipart detection
For awhile now I've been a little concerned that there was no warning system for clipart that has been tagged as pd_issue or similar. Relying on people to read the tags was not enough I felt.
So with the help of Richard Brett (actually he did most of it, all I did was copy and paste and fiddle with the code a little bit, and style it a little bit) we now have automatic non-pd clipart detection and messaging.
It should work on any clipart tagged as pd_issue, or potential copyright violation.
You can test it by going to http://
Some cliparts aren't showing this message, and I am not going to try to figure it out tonight. I'm pleased with where we are at at the moment. Future cliparts should be ok and should work with this system. I'll ask librarians to please keep an eye out for clipat that is tagged pd_issue, but is not displaying the message.
