Non-free media information and use rationale – non-free logo for MySQL

This is a logo for MySQL.


The logo may be obtained from MySQL.



Portion used

The entire logo is used to convey the meaning intended and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the intended image.

Low resolution?
Purpose of use

The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing MySQL, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.


Because it is a non-free logo, there is almost certainly no free representation. 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

Though this image is subject to copyright, its use is covered by the U.S. fair use laws because:

  1. It illustrates an educational article about the entity that the logo represents.
  2. It is a low resolution image, and thus not suitable for production of counterfeit goods.
  3. The logo is not used in such a way that a reader would be confused into believing that the article is written or authorized by the owner of the logo.
  4. It is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted image of comparable educational value.
