Fair use rationale for Image:Dolland aitchison opticians.png
Image:Dolland aitchison opticians.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.
Update needed on merger
The article states that "On 29 January 2009, it was announced that Boots Opticians were to merge with D&A, forming a chain of 690 stores and 5,000 staff after Boots purchased a controlling share in D&A." I think this section needs updating to reflect whether this merger did indeed go ahead and the actual, rather than expected, outcome. Wavehunter (talk) 23:12, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
- I have reversed the redirect part into Boots, because even if they merged, this is nevertheless a company with its own complete separate history. Also D&A are royal warrant holders, Boots afaik are not. Gryffindor (talk) 12:27, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
