Fair use rationale for Image:Dotca.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Dotca.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 01:15, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

reserved names[edit]

I'm not sure what to make of the long list of CIRA reserved names. If Coquitlam, BC is an actual place, coquitlam.bc.ca being reserved makes sense, but oddly CIRA also reserves the non-existent Coquitlam, Nunavut coquitlam.nu.ca along with PEI's non-existent coquitlam.pe.ca and the corresponding name in every other province and territory. With rare exceptions for existing local and provincial government, the third-level registration in .ca seems pretty much useless now as reserving or registering in one renders a name difficult to obtain or unavailable in the others. --carlb 19:14, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

What about toronto.bc.ca? Not only does (well, actually "did" now) CIRA reserve toronto.bc.ca (and your own example of coquitlam.pe.ca), but until they stopped allowing registrations of third- and fourth-level domains, you could actually register nonsensical domains! Don't believe me? Check it out: i-need-directions-to.toronto.bc.ca. --Craig (t|c) 10:31, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
