Fair Use Rationale for John Inman[edit]

I, User:Sue Wallace, believe that the use of this non-free image in the article John Inman is fair because:

  1. It is used in an infobox with the article only about John Inman.
  2. No free or public domain images are available for John Inman.
  3. The image does not limit the copyright owners' rights to distribute the image in any way.
  4. This image is widely distributed in other venues, so its use on Wikipedia does not make it significantly more accessible or visible than it already is.
  5. The notable and arguably instantly recognisable image of John Inman is being used for educational, critical and informational purposes to assist the reader in reviewing the article. Its use is not believed to deprive its copyright holders (BBC) of any financial gain.
  6. The image is low resolution. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, making it unsuitable for piracy.
  7. It is used as the primary means of visual identification of a notable deceased actor.
  8. It is only a small portion of the commercial product.
  9. Copyright ownership BBC
  10. He's also dead, so opportunities to obtain free use material is semi-impossible.
Note that this does not claim fair use in articles other than those listed above. If you wish to use this image in another article, please add a new fair use rationale below.
