File:Myra at John Kilbride's grave.jpg
|Non-free media information and use rationale for Moors murders|
A photograph taken by Ian Brady of Myra Hindley with her dog, Puppet, kneeling over John Kilbride's grave on Saddleworth Moor. Based on this new photograph, the bodies of John Kilbride and Lesley Ann Downey were soon unearthed, and both Brady and Hindley were charged with three counts of murder.
Because the image is historically significant, the entire image is needed to properly convey the meaning intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.
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 educational and informational purposes to show a photograph that was instrumental in charging Brady and Hindley for murder. There is critical commentary about this specific photograph in the article. It makes a significant contribution to the user's understanding of the article, which could not practically be conveyed by words alone. The image is an example of the type of photograph the police were using to base their search of the moor on.
Because the image depicts a non-reproducible historic event, 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.
|This image is a faithful digitisation of a unique historic image, and the copyright for it is most likely held by the person who created the image or the agency employing the person. It is believed that the use of this image may qualify as fair use under the Copyright law of the United States. Other use of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement.

Please remember that the non-free content criteria require that non-free images on Wikipedia must not "[be] used in a manner that is likely to replace the original market role of the original copyrighted media." Use of historic images from press agencies must only be of a transformative nature, when the image itself is the subject of commentary rather than the event it depicts (which is the original market role, and is not allowed per policy).
