Fair use rationale for Image:General Hammond in 'Sight Unseen'.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:General Hammond in 'Sight Unseen'.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 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 22:22, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Images of recently deceased people[edit]

The subject of this article was in the public eye and as such a free image should still be used. The subject was still alive just a few days ago and a photo could have been taken of him. See Roy Scheider for the sort of image I'm talking about. (Quentin X (talk) 13:24, 1 July 2008 (UTC))

Could, but cannot now, so your point is speculative until one comes along. I dispute this excessive wikilawyering, and support Million Moments' photo being placed back up. Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 14:05, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Fair use photos of Jeremy Beadle were placed up days after his death. This was later replaced by a free image, no harm done. The fair use is valid and the image can be replaced by a free content one if it becomes availible. As somebody who has placed free images on many of the stargate actor articles I have never found somebody who has given me permission for a Davis photograph yet. Million_Moments (talk) 16:25, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
While there may be "no harm done" photos of actors and TV personalities in the public eye who are recently deceased should not be included in articles unless it can be proved that none exist. Mr Davis attended both Stargate and X-Files conventions, so there should be a lot of free images out there. The Stargate image infringes copyright and should not be used. (212.74.97.195 (talk) 20:51, 1 July 2008 (UTC))
Yes, but they aren't free because people are not giving up there rights to them! How long do I have to wait then before the fair use image can be used? Million_Moments (talk) 20:56, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Assuming the existence of a free image is dubious in a copyright regime where someone has to take specific action to make a photograph free. Now, I'm sure with enough lobbying of Stargate fans, sooner or later someone will step up to the plate and make one of his snapshots free. The issue of living public figures is that theoretically at least, YOU the editor could go to one of his public events and take your own photo and release it. Not so with dead people. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 04:04, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

There are many pictures of Mr. Davis uploaded to Flickr [1]; some are copyrighted, some are not. If there aren't any that fully fit our libre-use preference, their authors can certainly be contacted vie Flickr to request preferential relicensing. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 04:59, 2 July 2008 (UTC) Nobody could see into the future to see if Mr. Don Davis was going to have a heart attack. This is common sense that should have been applied when this argument took place back in 2008. To this day I love the role he played on STARGATE SG-1. But to argue about a picture of the man is shameful. I'm sure that Mr. Davis could of cared less what picture was put up on this sight, and to say different would amount to predicting what a person no longer living would say a few days past his death. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:E:9100:177:3E07:71FF:FE80:3DD4 (talk) 03:02, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Flash Gordon (2007 series)?[edit]

Don Davis also made an appearance in two episodes of Flash Gordon (see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0959086/fullcredits#cast) I am not immediately familiar with editing and citing policies on wikipedia, so I did not wish to modify the main page myself, but perhaps someone else may wish to do it. 67.189.29.213 (talk) 10:04, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Message from his Family after his death[edit]

Dear Fans and Friends of Don S. Davis,

So many of you have been touched by not only the work and art of Don S. Davis, but by the man himself, who always took the time to be with you at the appearances he loved, that it is with a tremendous sense of loss I must share with you that Don passed away from a massive heart attack on Sunday morning, June 29th.

On behalf of his family and wife, Ruby, we thank you for your prayers and condolences. A family memorial where Don's ashes will be scattered in the ocean will take place in a few weeks, and should you wish to, please make a donation to the American Heart Association in Don's memory.

I refute "sic" thusly[edit]

Is there a reason for the "sic" after 'Davis said he once worked carving wooden "cigar store Indians"'? There doesn't appear to be any error/inaccuracy which would indicate that cigar store Indian needs to be qualified with a "no, we didn't make a mistake, he really said 'cigar store Indian'" which the term sic usually impiles. In fact - I'm just going to be bold and change it [2], and if there was a valid reason for it, you have my blessing to change it back. -- 174.31.221.70 (talk) 02:47, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Sources for his ashes poured in to the Pacific Ocean[edit]

One is here https://www.revolvy.com/main/index.php?s=List%20of%20people%20buried%20at%20sea&nojs=1 Which is a list of people buried at sea. This is the entry for Don S. Davis: https://www.revolvy.com/topic/Don%20S.%20Davis&item_type=topic

Another is here: http://screenrant.com/don-davis-dead/ Where the following can be read: "His family has released a statement:

“So many of you have been touched by not only the work and art of Don S. Davis, but by the man himself, who always took the time to be with you at the appearances he loved, that it is with a tremendous sense of loss I must share with you that Don passed away from a massive heart attack on Sunday morning, June 29.”

“On behalf of his family and wife, Ruby, we thank you for your prayers and condolences. A family memorial where Don’s ashes will be scattered in the ocean will take place in a few weeks, and should you wish to, please make a donation to the American Heart Association in Don’s memory.”"

Wether any of these two sources are trustworthy enoguh to be used in the main article I cannot tell. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.108.123.58 (talk) 06:50, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
