Fair Use Rationale (Example)

Though this image is subject to copyright, the U.S. fair use laws cover its use because:

  1. The image is used as the primary means of visual identification of the subject in question.
  2. It is a low-resolution image.
  3. The image is only a small portion of the commercial product.
  4. It is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted image of comparable educational value.
