Galactic Cowboys

Portion used


Low resolution?

The copy is of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original image. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as artwork on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original artwork.

Purpose of use

Identification and critical commentary in the Galactic Cowboys article, a subject of public interest. The image confirms to readers they have reached the correct article, and illustrates the group.


No free alternative could be created to illustrate the topic in question. The band have been split for nine years, and a new one is unlikely. A free contemporary image would not convey the same information.

Other information

Use of the promotional photograph 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.
The "Galactic Cowboys" and "DGC" logos are visible framing the photo, supporting the claim that it was originally used to promote the band.
