Licensing[edit]

Fair Use Rationale for Basic Instinct[edit]

  1. No free equivalent can be created. This image depicts part of an iconic sequence in movie, of which every image is copyrighted.
  2. This image respects commercial opportunities - the commercial product is a movie - a single image cannot meaningfully replace it.
  3. One image (cropped at that!) is the minimum that could be used to depict the sense. A two hour film has maybe 200 000 frames - so the usage factor for 1 frame is very small.
  4. Basic instinct was released in 1992, this image was published then.
  5. The image represents an iconic moment in a film that grossed $353 million (USD) and was nominated for two academy awards and two golden globes. Highly encyclopedic.
  6. The image is generally compliant with en.wikipedia's image policies.
  7. The image is used in at least on article, Basic instinct.
  8. The image contributes significantly to the article. It depicts an historically memorable scene which much of the movie's controversy and criticism was centred on. The image conveys the feeling of the scene in a way mere words cannot hope to.
  9. This image is used only in the article namespace.
  10. The image is a screencapture from the DVD, the copyright is owned by TriStar Pictures.

Fair use Rationale for Catherine Tramell[edit]

  1. No free equivalent can be created. This image depicts a fictional character during her most notorious moment which is a sequence in movie, of which every image is copyrighted. As a fictional character, no free images can be produced.
  2. This image respects commercial opportunities - the commercial product is a movie - a single image cannot meaningfully replace it.
  3. One image (cropped at that!) is the minimum that could be used to depict the character. A two hour film has maybe 200 000 frames - so the usage factor for 1 frame is very small.
  4. Basic instinct was released in 1992, this image was published then.
  5. The image represents an iconic depiction of a character in a film that grossed $353 million (USD) and was nominated for two academy awards and two golden globes. Highly encyclopedic. The character appeared in a second film so separate discussion of the character is warranted.
  6. The image is generally compliant with en.wikipedia's image policies.
  7. The image is used in at least on article, Catherine Tramell.
  8. The image contributes significantly to the article. It depicts an historically memorable scene which much of the movie's controversy and criticism was centred on. The image conveys the feeling of the scene in a way mere words cannot hope to. Aside from which, as a fictional character who's sexual appeal is an important part of the story, her appearance is critical to understanding of the character.
  9. This image is used only in the article namespace.
  10. The image is a screencapture from the DVD, the copyright is owned by TriStar Pictures.
