    Click on the image, scroll down and you'll see it's licensing. If its public domain, it will say, if its fair use it will explain how it is, and if its CCA it will list the details.

    Not sure why you couldn't just click on a picture on wiki and find that out yourself though...

    (worth pointing out though that the fair use policy probably wont apply quite as well to a site like 'Tramadol makes my penis larger)
