License tagging for File:Wilmington Academy Logo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Wilmington Academy Logo.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 21:05, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Photo of Brian C. Griffin.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Photo of Brian C. Griffin.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 09:10, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I never put it under fair use, I uploaded it as a "non-free work, as object of commentary". Where did you get that from. Arun Sunner | 19:21, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

By the way, does cropping the photo, make it new media of the same subject? Arun Sunner | 19:23, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Every use of non-free images on Wikipedia involves a fair-use claim, so the terms "fair use" and "non-free" are often treated as practically synonymous for our purposes. In any case, the justification you chose ("non-free work as object of commentary") is plainly wrong, because quite obviously the image isn't the object of any commentary in the article. Didn't you read what the upload form said about that option? As to your question, no, merely cropping an image doesn't really turn it into a new work, and usually changes nothing in terms of its copyright status. Fut.Perf. 00:43, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
