Template:Non-free use rationale video cover/doc

From Nordic Larp Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template is to help users write fair use rationales for non-free video covers as required by WP:NFC and WP:FURG. Include this in the image file, once for each time you insert the video cover art image into an article.

Please use copyrighted content responsibly and in accordance with Wikipedia policy. A template alone does not make video cover art fair to use. It merely helps you state why you think it is appropriate.

This template is optimized for video cover art used in the article about the video. It may or may not work in other contexts. For example, this fair use rationale may not be appropriate for images of software.

Before saving, try the "preview" feature to review the text produced by this template. Be sure the language is true and complete. If not, consider using the override fields, a different template, or a hand-written justification.
