Copyright undetermined

This is a copyrighted image that has been released by a company or organization to promote their work or product in the media, such as advertising material or a promotional photo in a press kit.

The copyright for it is most likely owned by the company who created the promotional item or the artist who produced the item in question; you must provide evidence of such ownership. Lack of such evidence is grounds for deletion.

It is believed that the use of some images of promotional material to illustrate:

  • the person(s), product, event, or subject in question
  • where the image is unrepeatable, i.e. a free image could not be created to replace it
  • on the PoliceWiki, hosted on servers in the United States by the non-profit policefans.org,

qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other usage of this image, on PoliceWiki or elsewhere, might be copyright infringement.

Additionally, the copyright holder may have granted permission for use in works such as PoliceWiki. However, if they have, this permission likely does not fall under a free license.
