Non-free media information and use rationale for Moors murders

Portion used

Because the image is historically significant, the entire image is needed to properly convey the meaning intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.

Low resolution?

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.

Other information

Use of this image in the above article complies with Wikipedia non-free content policy and fair use under United States copyright law as described above.
