Fair use

Fair use rationale for use in the article James Randi

Even though the media Amazingrandi.jpg is copyrighted and not released under a free license, I, Concernedresident, feel it is covered by fair use for at least one of the following reasons:

  • No free alternative exists.
  • This image is provided on the JREF press centre and recommended as the "Preferred official head-shot of JR". Wikipedia argues that it's a CC licence, but I couldn't find anything to that effect on the JREF site, but permission is implied by JREF providing the photo in their press centre.
  • The placement in a RationalWiki article is being used for informational purposes only, and its use is not believed to detract from the original copyrighted media in any way.
  • A free alternative may not exist now, but in the event of a free alternative being located for the article "James Randi" in the future, this file should be deleted as soon as possible.
