Stamp[edit]

This article contained a postage stamp under a "fair use" claim. Please bear in mind that:

  • The stamp was being used to illustrate the subject of the stamp, not the stamp itself
  • The stamp copyright tag explicitly states that "It is believed that the use of postage stamps to illustrate the stamp in question (as opposed to things appearing in the stamp's design)" is fair use. If a fair use claim is to be made in this article, then it has to be using something other than the standard stamp copyright tag.
  • The image lacks a fair use rationale. It needs a specific fair use rationale in addition to the copyright tag, for each single article in which it is used (so it would need one individually for use in this article). At present there is no stated rationale.

If the stamp is to be used in this article, these points need to be rectified in some way. For further information see Wikipedia:Fair use, which explains the limitations on use of "fair use" doctrine in Wikipedia. TheGrappler 19:09, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Cavendish seizure of Santa Ana[edit]

This article states that Cavendish seized the Santa Ana near Cabo San Lucas, which is on the southern tip of Baja California. However, the Thomas Cavendish article states that the Santa Ana was seized near Acapulco - many hundreds of miles away. Anybody able to confirm the site of the seizure of the Santa Ana?
