Fair use rationale for Image:SuperMarioBros3.PNG
Image:SuperMarioBros3.PNG 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 this Wikipedia article 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 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 lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Final Lap and Super Monaco GP lawsuit
I know that in Final Lap article there is a note that says:
"In 1990, Philip Morris, the tobacco conglomerate, filed a lawsuit claiming copyright infringement against Namco, Atari Games (the Final Lap distributor in the U.S.) and Sega on behalf of their Super Monaco GP game because both of these games featured a Marlboro billboard, which was found on the real-life Suzuka and Monaco tracks.
Philip Morris was under investigation at the time for their role in preteen smoking, and the appearance of one of their brands in games aimed towards children and teens did not help their image. Namco was forced to pay a settlement and Sega had to edit their game to remove all Marlboro signs."
I hope this can added into 1990 in video gaming topic, with "Namco, Atari, and Sega vs Philip Morris, due to the Marlboro billboard issues with Final Lap and Super Monaco GP" as label. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:53, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Super Mario Bros. 3 No Longer the Greatest Selling Title
I made a minor edit to the claim that Super Mario Bros. 3 is the best selling game of all time. In later years, it has been usurped by both Pokemon Red/Blue and certain Call of Duty titles. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:37, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
