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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Epstein.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.

Opinion of Obama[edit]

I'm not a partisan, so get that out of the way. But I was not sure that the "Opinion of Obama" section was appropriate -- it really seems to have more to do with Obama than Epstein. I mean, here we have Epstein, a guy who has said a ton of things about what must be thousands of different subjects. So why (other than the ongoing election) would we focus on this one? Similarly, certainly thousands of notable people have expressed views about political candidates -- I could be wrong, but I don't see anything special about this quote. If we did keep it, we might want to limit it to "statements about Obama" or the like. It's a little dangerous to say that this is Epstein's "opinion" of the candidate -- it's something he said about him, and may or may not truly reflect his opinion. Epstein may be voting for Obama, for all we know, so defining his opinion by one quote seems an overreach. Anyways, that's why I changed it, but reverts and/or contrary views are of course welcome. --TheOtherBob 23:03, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

I've heard Epstein speak on Obama, and he does in fact praise his former colleague.
That said, Epstein has indeed opined on many subjects, from Richard Nixon to the Exchequer Court to drug patents. A whole section on Obama is absurdly undue weight, and smacks of campaigning. It ought to be excluded. Thank you. Cool Hand Luke 17:57, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Richard Allen EpsteinRichard Epstein – No reason to list him with full middle name: the only other Richard Epstein is vastly less well known –  White Whirlwind  咨  21:51, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

  1. Support-Unless he is known by his middle name, this is a no brainer. The refs do not seem to mention his middle name.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 03:41, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
