Summary[edit]

Description

This image is a faithful digitization of a pinup poster of Farrah Fawcett. It is a historically significant image, being a world famous iconic image from the 1970s—the best-selling pinup poster of all time, with more than 12 million copies sold.[1]

Source

This particular digitization of the image was captured from http://beta.images.theglobeandmail.com/archive/00024/Farrah_Fawcett_po_24263gm-b.jpg; the original poster was created at a photo shoot held in 1976 by Bruce McBroom of Pro Arts Inc., and first published in Life magazine in 1976. The use of the subject poster image is unlikely to have a substantial effect upon the potential market for the poster. Claimed as fair use regardless.

Farrah Fawcett red swimsuit poster

Portion used

The entire image is needed to identify the subject, properly convey the meaning and branding intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.

Low resolution?

The copy is of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable for uses that would compete with any commercial purpose of the photograph.

Purpose of use

The image is used for identification for commentary on the poster itself in the context of the article, given the unique historical status of the image. It thus provides a significant contribution to the user's understanding of the article, which could not practically be conveyed by words alone. The image is placed at the beginning of the article discussing the subject, to help the user quickly identify the work and know they have found what they are looking for. The image confirms to readers they have reached the correct article, and illustrates the intended branding message.

Replaceable?

Because the image depicts a non-reproducible deceased subject, there is almost certainly no free equivalent. Any substitute that is not a derivative work would fail to convey the meaning intended, would tarnish or misrepresent its image, or would fail its purpose of identification or commentary.

Other information

Use of the historic image in the article complies with Wikipedia non-free content policy and fair use under United States copyright law as described above. The image meets general Wikipedia content requirements and is encyclopaedic.
