Fair Use Image Data
Description

This is an image of a book cover. Specifically, the cover of the publication UNSPECIFIED. The cover art copyright is believed to belong to the publisher or the cover artist, Unknown. See the publication record linked above for details of the book's author, publisher, and cover artist.

Portion used

The entire cover. The entire image is needed to identify the book, including the specific edition, help confirm bibliographic data, properly convey the meaning intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.

Fair Use Image Rationale
Purpose of use The image is used as the primary means of visual identification of the book and edition involved and to confirm the accuracy of such bibliographic data as title, publisher, price, and cover artist.
Replaceable?

As a book cover, the image is not replaceable by free content; any other image that shows the cover of the book would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary.

Rationale

The use of this image, in connection with the display of bibliographic information about a specific edition of the book linked to above, as part of the ISFDB, a non-profit bibliographic reference work, on servers located within the United States, is believed to constitute Fair Use within the meaning of United States copyright law. Reusers of the ISFDB's content should take care to be sure that their use conforms to applicable copyright law -- not all such uses will constitute fair use, and copyright law varies significantly in different nations.



Documentation for the template: Cover Image Data3 (transcluded from Template:Cover Image Data3/Doc.

Contents

Purpose

This template is to be placed on the image description page of a book, magazine, or other publication cover image used under fair use.

This template provides less information than does Template:Cover Image Data, but requires less user input. However, it does document the cover artist, and put the image page into an artist category, as Template:Cover Image Data2 does not. It is therefore a sort of middle ground between Template:Cover Image Data and Template:Cover Image Data2

Usage

Call this template as:

{{Cover Image Data3
|Pub=<TAG>
|Artist=<Canonical or credited name of artist>
|Title=<Book Title>
}}

or as:

{{Cover Image Data3
|Id=<TAG>
|Artist=<Canonical or credited name of artist>
|Title=<Book Title>
}}

or as:

{{Cover Image Data3
|Pub=<TAG>
|Artist=<name>
}}

or as:

{{Cover Image Data3|<TAG>|<Artist's name>|<Book Title>}}

or as:

{{Cover Image Data3|<TAG>|<Artist's name>|}}

Note: In all the above examples, when a parameter is shown in angle brackets, like:

<Parameter>

then the parameter, and the angle brackets, should be replaced by the value of the parameter. For example: Title=<TITLE> should become Title=The Name of the Book (or whatever the name might be).

When using an unnamed (positional) parameter, it should NOT be the last thing on the line. It should be followed by either a pipe symbol (|) if there is another parameter to follow, or by the template call close (}}) if there is not. Otherwise the parameter value will be passed as including the carriage return at the end of the line, which will probably cause the template to function incorrectly.

Parameters

  • Pub must specify a publication record tag or record number, an acceptable argument to Template:P (which see). Id may be used instead. If neither the "Pub=" nor the "Id=" parameter is present, the first unnamed parameter is used. One of these must be present and valid for the template to work correctly.
  • Artist should specify the name of the artist who created the cover image. The artist may be specified either as credited for this particular work, or by his or her ISFDB canonical name. If the "Artist=" parameter is not present, the 2nd unnamed parameter is used. Note that it therefore does not work to specify the Id parameter with a name, but the Artist parameter without one. Either both should be supplied as named parameters, or both as positional (unnamed) parameters. While the template will work without the artist being specified (it defaults to "Unknown") the main point of using this template, as opposed to {{Cover Image Data2}}, is the ability to specify the artist, and put the image into an artist category automatically. So this parameter is "almost required". If the image is one that has only lettering against a plain background, or otherwise has no real "art", and has no credited creator, specify the artist as None.
  • ArtistId is optionally used to specify the record number of the 1st cover artist, if known. It is used to link to artist summary page via the record number when artist's name has characters (single quotes, non-ASCII) that cause linking by name to fail. In order for this field to work, the "Artist" field also has to be filled in.
  • Title may specify the title of the book. This will be used in formatting the link to the publication record, as the optional name parameter to Template:P. If "Title=" is not present, the 3rd unnamed parameter is used instead. If neither is present, the tag is used in place of the title. (Note that therefore an unnam,es parameter should not be used for title unless both ID and Artist use unnamed parameters also. All or none should be unnamed.)

Alias

To reduce typing, the alias {{CID3}} has been created for this template. So this template can also be called as

{{CID3
|Pub=<TAG>
|Artist=<name>
|Title=<Book Title>
}}

or as:

{{CID3
|Id=<TAG>
|Artist=<name>
}}

or as:

{{CID3|<TAG>|<Artist's name>|<Book Title>}}

Note: In all the above examples, when a parameter is shown in angle brackets, like:

<Parameter>

then the parameter, and the angle brackets, should be replaced by the value of the parameter. For example: Title=<TITLE> should become Title=The Name of the Book (or whatever the name might be).

Categories

This template puts all pages that transclude (call) it into the following categories:

It also puts each such page into a category based on the artist's name, as recorded in the Artist parameter.
