Fair use for Jimi Hendrix
Though this image is subject to copyright, its use is covered by the U.S. fair use laws, and the stricter requirements of Wikipedia's non-free content policies, because:
- It is a historically significant photo of a famous individual. According to author and musicologist David Moskowitz: "The image of Jimi kneeling over his burning guitar at Monterey became one of the most iconic pictures of the era." (Moskowitz, David (2010). The Words and Music of Jimi Hendrix. Praeger. ISBN 978-0-313-37592-7, page 22) Author Keith Shadwick wrote: "Hendrix was dressed in clothes as exotic as any on display elsewhere ... He was not only something utterly new musically, but an entirely original vision of what a black American entertainer should and could look like." Author and historian Matthew C. Whitaker wrote: "Hendrix's burning of his guitar became an iconic image in rock history and brought him national attention." (Whitaker Matthew C. (2011). Icons of Black America: Breaking Barriers and Crossing Boundaries. Greenwood. ISBN 978-0313376429, page 382)
- It is of much lower resolution than the original. Copies made from it will be of very inferior quality.
- The photo is only being used for informational purposes.
- Its inclusion in the article adds significantly to the article because the photo and its historical significance are the object of discussion in the article.
