|This page documents the Official Policy of the GTA Wiki. It concerns standards that all users should follow.|
Grand Theft Wiki has a series of policies regarding the use and reproduction of Copyright material.
Using Grand Theft Wiki Content
You may use content on Grand Theft Wiki for research purposes. This includes looking up information for yourself, and looking up information to be used on other websites.
However, if you wish to copy content directly from Grand Theft Wiki to another website, you should ask permission first, on the Copyright discussion page.
Putting Content onto Grand Theft Wiki
No copyrighted content should be placed on Grand Theft Wiki unless either you own the copyright or have express written permission to use it. However, some content, such as logos, screenshots, names or short text extracts (eg quotes) may be placed if used fairly. Any quotes, text extracts or images should reference their source, unless it is obvious (eg a company logo) or generic (no identifiable author).
We believe it is fair to use screenshots of games to represent games and the characters, vehicles and locations in those games. We also believe that it is fair to use existing screenshots for that purpose, since we (by default) allow images to be reproduced elsewhere. Credit will be given where due. However, if the copyright holder wishes to dispute our use of an image, it should be discussed on the talk page for the image or this page.

Grand Theft Wiki will not be held liable for any misuse of content by our registered members.
Correction of Breaches of Copyright
If you believe a copyright has been breached, please let us know, and provide proof of the source and licence of the content. We will aim to correct the problem as soon as possible if neccessary.
