This image is of a book cover, and the copyright for it is most likely owned either by the artist who created the cover or the publisher of the book. It is believed that the use of low-resolution images of book covers

  • to illustrate an article discussing the book in question
  • 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. Other use of this image, on PoliceWiki or elsewhere, might be copyright infringement.


Fair use rationale for Sting And The Police (Sullivan 1984)

  • It is believed that the use of this image on the PoliceWiki to illustrate an article on the subject(s) listed above falls under the "Non-profit educational" clause of the Fair Use doctrine currently upheld by United States law. (17 U.S.C. § 107)
  • The image is irreplaceable; a free analogue is impossible to produce as the original will be covered by copyright for the foreseeable future.
  • Owing to the limited web-resolution of the image, only a small portion of a copyrighted work is used.
  • For the same reasons, the portion of the copyrighted work used is of inherently lower quality than the original, reducing the risk of competitiveness and therefore the effects of this copy on the market for or value of versions held by the owner of the copyright.

Derived from a digital capture (scan/photo) of the book cover (creator of this digital version is irrelevant as the copyright in all equivalent images is still held by the same party). Copyright held by the book publishing company or the artist. Claimed as fair use regardless.
