Fair use

Fair use rationale for use in the article Grey aliens

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

  • No free alternative exists.
  • The cover shows one of the most widely-seen and influential images of the so-called "grey aliens". As the article discusses the development of the image in popular culture, the book cover is an important aspect.
  • 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 "Grey aliens" in the future, this file should be deleted as soon as possible.
