Description

This template is intended to assist in the creation of "fair use" rationales for images of people that are used in a biographical context.

Usage

To use the template, copy the empty template to an image where the content is considered non-free, and fill in applicable fields (described below).

The minimum required for a deceased person is:

{{Non-free use rationale biog
| name              = 
| birth             = 
| death             = 
| use               = <!-- Choose: Infobox / Header / Section -->
| source            = 
| article           = 
| purpose           = 
}}

The minimum required for a living person is:

{{Non-free use rationale biog
| name              = 
| birth             = 
| use               = <!-- Choose: Infobox / Header / Section -->
| source            = 
| article           = 
| purpose           = 
| replaceability    = 
}}

The full version is:

{{Non-free use rationale biog
| name              = 
| birth             = 
| death             = 
| description       = 
| source            = 
| article           = 
| portion           = 
| low resolution    = 
| use               = <!-- Choose: Infobox / Header / Section -->
| purpose           = 
| replaceability    = 
| other information = 
}}
name
the full name of the person in the biography concerned
birth
(optional) date of birth (in any format), if known
death
(optional) date of death (in any format), if known
description
(optional) other descriptive information, including the copyright holder if known
source
Where you acquired the copyrighted material, or how you recreated it
article
The exact name of the Wikipedia article in which the media is to be used (unlinked, i.e. do not include brackets [[]], as the template will link automatically).
portion
(optional) How much copyrighted material is used? The amount used must not make the work as a whole less valuable to the copyright holder. If this parameter is left blank, the template will display "A single small image or extract sufficient for the intended purpose without being excessive."
low resolution
(optional) Is the material in a lower resolution that would be unlikely to impact the copyright owner's ability to resell or otherwise profit from the work? For raster images, this would be the resolution (in pixels) of the picture used. If this parameter is left blank, the template will display "The image is of a size consistent with fair-use."
use
(optional) enter one of Infobox, Header or Section
purpose
(optional, but required if Use is not one of the standard options) Alternative or additional explanation of how the image contributes significantly to the article in which it is used
replaceability
Explain why sourced text or equivalent free content media (perhaps to be obtained or created) could not adequately convey the article subject. If anything was entered for the parameter "death", the template will display "Subject of image is deceased, so creation of recent free image is impossible."
other information
(optional) If applicable, provide any other information that justifies the current use of this non-free media. If this parameter is left blank, the template will display "Use of the image is consistent with fair-use provisions."

Example
