Description[edit]

This template facilitates creating a non-free or fair use media rationale with the necessary components. Please read Project:Images policy before using this template.

Usage[edit]

To use the template, copy the empty template to an image or other media file (see Help:Files) where the content is regarded to be non-free, and fill in applicable fields (described below).

Description
A description of the copyrighted material. Always include the copyright holder here.
Source
Where you acquired the copyrighted material, or how you regenerated it.
Article
The exact name of the Wikipedia article in which the media is to be used (unlinked, as the template will link automatically).
Portion
How much copyrighted material is used? The amount used must not make the work as a whole less valuable to the copyright holder.
Low resolution
Is the material in a lower resolution that would be unlikely to impact the copyright owners ability to resell or otherwise profit from the work? For images, this would be strictly the resolution (in pixels) of the picture used; for audio, this would be the bit rate and sample resolution used. SVG images do not technically have a resolution, so may be described using "SVG will be rendered at low resolutions".
Purpose
How does the media contribute significantly to the article(s) in which it is used? The use of the media must not interfere with the media's original purpose.
Replaceability
Explain why sourced text or equivalent free content media (perhaps to be obtained or created) could not adequately convey the article subject.
Other information
If applicable, provide any other information that justifies the current use of this non-free media. This variable is optional, and can be blank or removed.
