The Final Fantasy Wiki offers no suggestion that the work presented on this web page is "official" or produced or sanctioned by the owner or any licensees of the aforementioned trademarks. The Final Fantasy Wiki makes no claim to own Final Fantasy or any of the copyrights or trademarks related to it.

Written work[edit]

All written work submitted to the Final Fantasy Wiki is placed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license (CC-BY-SA). The copyright of work submitted to this Wiki remains with the copyright holder - which, if you wrote it, will be you. Submitting your work does not restrict what you can do with it; it just permits us to do certain things with it as well.

By submitting your work, you grant the Final Fantasy Wiki permission to distribute it under the terms of the CC-BY-SA, and you accept that others may modify and distribute your work under the same terms. That means they may change what articles say, and make copies of the Final Fantasy Wiki articles on other sites, as long as they license such copies under the CC-BY-SA.

Note that you cannot retract this license. You can, of course, edit an article to alter or remove your work if you do not want it there anymore, but you cannot stop someone reinstating it. Please think carefully about whether you want to write something on the Final Fantasy Wiki before you do so.

If you want to import text that you have found elsewhere or that you have co-authored with others, you can only do so if it is available under terms that are compatible with the CC-BY-SA license.

Work which you do not hold the copyright to, or which is not available under this license, should not be added to the Wiki.

If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must, in a reasonable fashion, credit the author(s). Where such credit is commonly given through page histories (such as copying within the Wiki), it is sufficient to give attribution in the edit summary, which is recorded in the page history, when importing the text.

Images[edit]

Images that are displayed at the Final Fantasy Wiki remain the property of their original creators, and are only included on this website for purposes of illustration under fair use guidelines. Every image has an owner, unless that image has been explicitly placed in the public domain. Unless the original author of the image expressly grants such permission, images do not fall under the scope of the CC-BY-SA license. In all cases, images must be uploaded to our database rather than linked from other servers (see Wikipedia:Inline linking), and must be accompanied by a copyright tag.
