Fair Use[edit]

To quote Wikipedia:Fair_Use#Fair_use_policy:

Fair use images should only be used in the article namespace. Used outside article space, they are often enough not covered under the fair use doctrine. They should never be used on templates (including stub templates and navigation boxes) or on user pages. They should be linked, not inlined, from talk pages when they are the topic of discussion. This is because it is the policy of the Wikimedia Foundation to allow an unfree image only if no free alternative exists and only if it significantly improves the article it is included on. All other uses, even if legal under the fair use clauses of copyright law, should be avoided to keep the use of unfree images to a minimum. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis if there is a broad consensus that doing so is necessary to the goal of creating a free encyclopedia (like the templates used as part of the Main Page).

I do not believe the use of the logo in this template is "necessary to the goal of creating a free encyclopedia" and so I think it should be removed. As other disagree, I thought I'd bring it up here before removing it again. So please, discuss. --Falcorian (talk) 00:12, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
