Non-free media information and use rationale – non-free logo for Smithwick's

This is a logo for Smithwick's.


The logo may be obtained from Smithwick's.



Portion used

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

Low resolution?

The logo is of a size and resolution sufficient to maintain the quality intended by the company or organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution.

Purpose of use

The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing Smithwick's, 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

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

Fair useFair use of copyrighted material in the context of Smithwick's//

This is from a photograph I took of a Smithwick's ale billboard. I cropped and altered the perspective etc. and as such I reckon it now comes, in copyright terms, under fair use. In other words I believe the copyright in this image rests with the owners of the Smithwick's brand of ale. If I have any copyright over the image (very unlikely), due to the fact that I took the photo, I release it under CC-BY-SA-2.5. But I don't think I do and I believe Diageo, the owners of the brand "Smithwick's" own the copyright. I am uploading this image for illustrative purposes for the Smithwick's article on Wikipedia. By uploading this image I am not acting on behalf of or with the permission or knowledge of Diageo. If this violates the copyright terms for wikipedia please feel free to remove this image but please let me know and tell me why. Thanks.Trounce
