Fair use

Fair use rationale for use in the article Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

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

  • No free alternative exists.
    • The copy is of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original cover. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as cover on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original cover.
  • The image is used for identification in the context of critical commentary of the work for which it serves as cover art. It makes a significant contribution to the user's understanding of the article, which could not practically be conveyed by words alone. The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing the work, to show the primary visual image associated with the work, and to help the user quickly identify the work and know they have found what they are looking for.
  • 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 "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" in the future, this file should be deleted as soon as possible.
