Fair use rationale for Image:Ellen Glasgow.jpg
Image:Ellen Glasgow.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.

Copyright violation, confusion of references, OR
This article is marred by numerous issues that violate Wikipedia policies. It has wholesale copying of text from at least one of the sources: Inge, "Ellen Glasgow", in The Encyclopedia of Southern Culture,(http://docsouth.unc.edu/southlit/glasgowbattle/bio.html) without paraphrasing or roper attribution by quotations. The copying had constituted much of the first three paragraphs before I started recent editing. I changed the first paragraph and parts of the second to paraphrase material about the facts, but do not have time to edit this entire article to correct the problem with this source, or to check what editors have done with all the other sources to see if there are other copyright violations. The article has been worked on for more than a year since the Inge material was added in May 2009. In addition, many more sources are listed as References than are cited in inline citations. Also, material is taken from Glasgow's autobiography to support statements that appear to be Original Research, as they are not sourced to third-party authors.Parkwells (talk) 23:44, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
- The lead material that constituted the copyright vio was first added in May 2009 and I have notified that editor. The article has had numerous changes since then. I have not checked each of the cites against each source.Parkwells (talk) 00:28, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
