Fair use rationale for Image:LorillardLogo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:LorillardLogo.gif 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 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:50, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

What?[edit]

is the 18th oldest company in the United States and the nation's oldest tobacco company.

It is an American company right? Does this make any sense then? How can you be the 18th oldest and the oldest? I assume when you say nation you mean the United States? Please clarify or edit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.205.54.4 (talk) 21:09, 19 November 2010 (UTC)


Makes perfect sense to me. It just means that the 17 US companies older than Lorillard aren't tobacco companies. What's the problem? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.23.183.12 (talk) 15:49, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Intro sentence makes no sense[edit]

"Lorillard Tobacco Company is the 18th oldest company in the United States and the nation's oldest tobacco company"

So which is it? 71.0.115.130 (talk) 22:30, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

It is both the 18th oldest company in the United States and the oldest tobacco company in the United States. I cannot think of a clearer way to word that. Tomsv 98 (talk) 21:15, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
