From PoliceWiki


This section needs more information.



This is a sample from a copyrighted audio recording. It is believed that the use of this work qualifies as fair use under United States law when used on the PoliceWiki, hosted on servers in the United States by the non-profit policefans.org, where:

  1. The sample is being used for commentary on the recording in question.
  2. It contributes significantly to the encyclopedia articles it is used in (listed under the heading "File links" below) in a way that cannot be duplicated by other forms of media.
  3. The sample is short in relation to the duration of the recorded track and is of an inferior quality to the original recording.
  4. No other samples from the same track are used in PoliceWiki.
  5. There is no adequate free content alternative available.

A more detailed fair use rationale may be provided by the user who uploaded this recording. Any other uses of this recording, on PoliceWiki or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement. If you are the copyright holder of this recording and you feel that its use here does not fall under "fair use" please contact PoliceWiki:Administrators.

To the uploader: please add a detailed fair use rationale as well as the source of the work and copyright information.

Fair use rationale in Article name

This is a sound sample from a commercial recording. Its inclusion here is claimed as fair use because:

  • It illustrates an educational article that specifically discusses the song from which this sample was taken
  • It is a sample of about LENGTH seconds from a much longer recording, and could not be used as a substitute for the original commercial recording; and
  • It is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted sample of comparable educational value.
  • It is believed that this sample will not affect the value of the original work or limit the copyright holder's rights or ability to distribute the original recording.

I believe that this use of the excerpt is in good faith, and that its inclusion enhances rather than reduces the commercial value of the recording from which it was drawn.
