Fair use rationale for Image:Porgy and Bess 1959 poster.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Porgy and Bess 1959 poster.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 08:14, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Gershwin-family blocks any re-release of the movie _Porgy and Bess_?[edit]

As far as I've heard the film now is unavailable on VHS or DVD, because the Gershwin-family, unhappy with the movie, bought all rights of it and blocks any new release. If that is true, shouldn't it be mentioned in the article? I'd do it myself, but English is not my native language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:19, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

My edits[edit]

In addition to the edits I cited in my edit summary, I removed most of the original version of this article because none of the statements in it were referenced, and none of them were supported by either of the two very reliable sources I used as research material. Also, some of it bordered on POV. LiteraryMaven (talkcontrib) 20:32, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
