Fair use rationale for Image:Jarsofclay theessentialjoc.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Jarsofclay theessentialjoc.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 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.

Digital studio albums[edit]

Hi there,

You seemed to be unaware of the existence of digital studio albums, so here are some basics:

At the studio, equipment such as a digital audio workstation is used to record live sound, and the end result is a DDD album.

I've been doing work with the local audio production industry for a few years now, so I'm happy to help you find out any information you might need : )

That's grasping at straws. No one differentiates between an album recorded digitally from those that use analogue technology at some stage. Most importantly, there is no proof that Jars of Clay recorded their earlier albums that way. The use of "digital studio album]] in this sense is purely WP:OR, and that's WP:AGF.

For a start, it's not at all grasping at straws. Secondly, a huge number of people differentiate between an album recorded digitally from those that use analogue technology at some stagem as clearly evidenced by the content of the articles that you presumably failed to read. And I'm not trying to say whether or not they recorded the album digitally, I'm saying that they released it digitally. InternetMeme (talk) 14:58, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
Show the term in common use. Until then, it is grasping at straws. It is used of digital photo albums, but not recorded music. It's also the name of someone's album, but Billboard, Spin and other music publications do not use the term.
To use the term without a reference is just wrong regardless of how you think it's used. It was not released digitally. Many of their early releases were released on vinyl, cassette and CD. The two former categories would preclude the use of the term. And not knowing how it was recorded would mean it fails your DDD category. Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:11, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
And this is specifically related to the complete term "digital studio album" not "digital album" or "digital-only release". Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:53, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
