Guild Wars Wiki talk:Fair Use
- In the proposed image template the colours kind of clash. red and green should never be seen! More importantly after having a quick scan before I go to work I think that looks pretty sound. However I think we will definitely need to get Gaile involved so she can check with the lawyer folks on this one. --Lemming64 11:20, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
 Question 1
"Location Non-free content is only to be used in the main namespace - never in user pages"
- Why? --Xeeron 11:52, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
- Use of non-free images should be kept to a minimum. We don't need it in our user pages. -- Indochine talk 11:54, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
 Question 2
"Fair Use is a part of United States copyright law of 1976"
- This is more about the legal stuff in general. Does the wiki use american law in general because Anet is based in the US/the servers are based in the US? Is so, where is that mentioned? --Xeeron 11:52, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
Hm, I would suggest to make a policy for other types of content as well. We are using a some more non-GFDL images here which are not contributed as Fair use..
There are also nice icons from Biro for images and I would like to make use of them: Image:Copyright-violation-image.png, Image:Public-domain-image.png, Image:Unattributed-image.png, Image:Copyleft-image.png, Image:Copyright-image.png poke | talk 12:06, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
- There nice icons - I've used the Image:Copyright-image.png in the Fair Use template -- Indochine talk 12:23, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
The decision of allowing non-GFDL content on the wiki is ultimately not up to us but to ANet. If we're seriously considering the possibility of allowing content to be used on the wiki with a Fair Use defense, we'll certainly need to make ANet (and their lawyers) part of this discussion. There was a discussion similar to this a while back, where Gaile spoke strongly in favour of keeping everything as GFDL, so that decision won't be an easy one. --Dirigible 04:54, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
