Fair use rationale for Image:Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier front page.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier front page.gif 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.

Copyvio?[edit]

Much of this article seems to be lifted nearly word for word from the Kinney source listed in the references. Significant rewriting should be done to prevent copyright violations. Rehcsif (talk) 22:00, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

I've addressed this. Thank you for pointing it out. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:12, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to both Rehcsif and Tenebrae for being aware of this. I've rolled back to the last clean version (see below), and apologise to anyone whose good-faith edits have been lost in that process. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 16:34, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
