Fair use rationale for Image:Carnonovel.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Carnonovel.jpg 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.

Removal of plagiarism reference[edit]

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a fan of Michael Crichton and Jurassic Park. I happened upon this page due to discussion on the talk page of the Jurassic Park article, in which a user referenced Carnosaur and claimed that Crichton had plagiarized. Interested, I clicked the link, scanned the page, and went to the source cited next to the blurb in the article that said that the author would have sued Crichton for plagiarism had he had the time or money for a lawsuit. What I found is that the source links to something that looks like a blog, with an entry that alludes to an unverifiable second-hand conversation with the author, no direct quotes, in which the author of Carnosaur allegedly indicated the sentiment expressed in this article. While pointing out similarities between Carnosaur and Jurassic Park are fine, since they can be verified and are factual (though they do border on original research), you cannot link to a disheveled collection of writings on a blog that contains hearsay about an author's unpublished allegations of plagiarism and call that a legitimate source. If somebody can add in sourcing that isn't from a blog or a messageboard that shows that the author made plagiarism allegations, feel free to add the plagiarism bit back in. But you can't just say "So, I heard that the author would have sued, even though he's never made formal allegations of plagiarism because he's afraid he won't win the lawsuit". No lawsuit + no on-the-record allegations = not worthy of inclusion herein.98.118.13.170 (talk) 22:28, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
