I think this picture is copyrighted, anyway. Meaning it has no place there. So I don't see anything wrong with it being deleted.

Maybe someone can contact Fred, and ask him for a permission to use some pic in Wikipedia.

Shouldn't it be the property of the people depicted in it? If so, send emails to the four of them and ask for permission.

They are just saying its copywrited,they havnt recieved a complaint. Or havnt said they recieved a complaint.
Its very likely to be an official photo, so it might even be "owned" by the french govement. And thus used as a premotional tool for their country.

Under Wiki's fair use guidelines (which is also printed on the same page) you are allowed to post copywrited works if there isnt suitable replacement.

This represents an important point in his life, there has been no complaint as far as I know (who is the copywrited holder anyway?).

More important, there IS NOT a replacement picture.
That picture is historic in gameing terms.
It shows the 3 greatest adventure game makers together recieveing what amounts to a knighthood.


It seems to me some wiki editor just flagged it for browny points, I suspect all thats needed is to say "there isnt a replacement, this isnt just a pic of miyamoto its a pic of an a important event in his life".

The person that flagged it probably thought any old pic of him would be a replacement.

This image was uploaded under a fair use rationale, but may fail Wikipedia's first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a free image might reasonably be found or created that adequately provides the same information. If you believe that a free replacement image can not be reasonably found or created please add one of the following:
{{Replaceable fair use disputed | Your reason why a free replacement is not available}}

or
{{Replaceable fair use disputed}}

to this page and give the reasons for your dispute on the talk page.

So...is anyone here expirenced enough in the wikiways to do the above?
I havnt even got an account myself, I just didnt want to see this die without a fight.
Its reflects very well on Fred, and we should support even little stuff like this to ensure he is continued to be known.

I don't understand. This is a historical record, not a commercial promotion. Seeing as how this is an encyclopedia, why aren't historical records allowed?

Also, can't you just "insert image" via URL link to the original source (like how you do around these forums)? This way you're still pointing to the copyright holder's domain.

I did it!

Now they're agreeing to keep it, but only a smaller resolution version of it.

No-one's uploaded a smaller version yet... I would except I have no idea how small it has to be – it doesn't tell you.

Good work, but would you mind if I reupload it in PNG? If smaller version then at least we can make it highest quality possible

Do what you like with it... it is a wiki after all. But now I've been asked to provide a "fair use rationale", despite the fact that its use seems to be justified in the copyright template thing...

Edit: done. I hope it's adequate...
