Fair use

Fair use rationale for use in the article Loch Ness Monster

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

  • No free alternative exists.
    • The image is historically important
  • More specifically, it is one of the more widely known 'hoax' images connected with the Loch Ness Monster
  • The original image remains a controversial photograph of a cryptid. It would be difficult to comment on it without reference to the visual image concerned
  • source
  • 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 "Loch Ness Monster" in the future, this file should be deleted as soon as possible.
