Fair use rationale for Image:DHBlackwell.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DHBlackwell.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Copyvio[edit]

I've reverted to before the first copyvio, which unfortunately was back in February 2007. Superm401 - Talk 10:12, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

... and in doing so, wiped out most of the text of the article. Please be more careful in the future! There was no need to revert the article to a year-old version simply to remove the photo. qitaana (talk) 13:46, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
You misunderstood. I did not revert back to February 2007 because of the photo. I reverted because copyright infringements had been introduced into the text, which is why the article was tagged as a copyvio. The first copyvio was introduced on February 10, 2007, so I had to revert to the edit before that. See Wikipedia:Copyright infringement, which says, "If there is a clean revision in the page history, revert to it." I reverted to the most recent clean revision.
After the revert, I removed the photo link because it was a redlink. Note that I am not the one that deleted the photo; that was Maxim. Superm401 - Talk 16:45, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
