Fair use rationale for Image:JAMES jeans 1933.png
Image:JAMES jeans 1933.png 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 ensure 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.
I think that this edit, while it removed sections that certainly needed work, has done more harm than good. I would strongly suggest that the material be put back as it is fairly important to understanding the man's lasting impact. -Miskaton (talk) 22:27, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Miskaton and have therefore reinstated the Idealism section. It would be good to have a proper reference for the Observer quotation. Also, in the final paragraph, I'm not sure if JJ is expressing his own views, or speculative views, or is just commenting on someone else's views. After all, according to the article he is an agnostic. Peter Ells (talk) 22:01, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
