Summary

User: James P. Sullivan had originally screenshotted this image of Ducky specifically for Wikipedia's use. He had the image uploaded under the file name "Image:Dookie.JPG". However, he had either neglected to add a fair use rationale, or he uploaded the image before this policy was established. Because no one bothered to write down a fair use rationale for the image, it was deleted in early October, 2007.

In late January, 2008, I, User:Wilhelmina Will, requested that the image be restored so I could fix that problem. I must confess though, I only told half the truth. I wanted it restored so I could save the image to my own hard drive, then upload it to Wikipedia as a new version of this file. Then I would include the missing fair use rationale. I did this because I wanted my file - I don't claim ownership to the images, just motherhood to the file - to survive.

Now, on March 15th, 2008, the character articles in Wikipedia are at risk of being merged, on account of notability in a real-world encyclopedia. Therefore, as I fear something may occur to the images there, I have decided to immigrate them, their histories, and their non-free media rationales over to here, starting with my favourite image (this one).

Fair use rationale/s

Though the image, and all screenshots/illustrations relating to The Land Before Time are subject to copyright, it is believed that the image can be permanently used in the following instances, while still complying with fair use laws.

Non-free/fair use media rationale for this image:
Screenshot of the Land Before Time character Ducky, taken from the original The Land Before Time movie. (circa 1988) The movie was directed by Don Bluth and produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment.
Source Original screenshot was taken by User: James P. Sullivan. It is unknown if he/she screenshotted it by camera while watching the film on television, or using PowerDVD or something to the extent, while watching it on the computer. As mentioned in the image summary, it was deleted from Wikipedia, but has been reuploaded under a new file name there, and also uploaded here.
Article Ducky
Portion used The entire of the original image is being used in this file.
Purpose of use The image is being used in the article: Ducky because it is an article about the Land Before Time character, Ducky. Readers of this article, who may have heretofore known nothing about the Land Before Time or its characters, may want to know what exactly this character looks like, and the text in the article - aside from the description of Ducky being a Parasaurolophus, a link left to the article on this species for further reading, - offers very little to go by on this matter. Articles are also considered to be of higher quality, appearance-wise and informatively, if they have at least one image, and if there is an infobox in the article, it is also preferred that the image or one of the images be placed in there. So this image performs three purposes in the article it is being used in: 1. It serves to illustrate the article. 2. It serves to decorate the article's infobox. 3. It allows for visual identification of the character who is the subject of the article.
Replaceable? As all trademarks, designs, merchandise, characters or icons of the Land Before Time are held under copyright by the owners of the series, this image cannot be replaced, as there is no free alternative. As the show's copyright has not expired, either, the image is also not in the public domain, nor is there a public domain version of this image, available.
Other Information Using this image in Ducky will not limit the copyright holder's abilities to market the character, show, or any merchandise related to either, in any way, as Wikia is a non-profit organization and does not steal or deliberatley benefit from other's copyrights. Along with that, this particular image was originally screenshotted by an editor of Wikipedia - another non-profit organization related to Wikia - who - while not likely holding any copyright permissions under the characters of the movie, - still screenshotted this image specifically for Wikipedia/Wikia to use. While this does not change the copyright status, it still gives the benefit of not having to borrow an image from another website, which might also be copyrighted under the same owners as the show. Therefore, it is easier to avoid borrowing fair use images or media from other websites (who might be committting copyright infringement by containing the image/s). It also assures that this image is not being used for profit gain anywhere else. As a final reassurance, the image has had a proper, non-free The Land Before Time-movie license provided, ensuring that Land Before Time Wiki acknowledges the image's copyright status. Thank you.

Article The Land Before Time
Portion used The entire of the original image is being used in this file.
Purpose of use The image is being used in the "Gallery" section of this article because it is a screenshot taken from the movie which is the subject of the article. It serves, therefore, to illustrate the article, and to partially visually summarize the subject.
Replaceable? As all trademarks, designs, merchandise, characters or icons of the Land Before Time are held under copyright by the owners of the series, this image cannot be replaced, as there is no free alternative.

Article Parasaurolophus
Portion used The entire of the original image is being used in this file.
Purpose of use The image is being used in the article: Parasaurolophus because it is an article about Ducky's official species. Readers of this article, who may have heretofore known nothing about the Land Before Time, its characters, or their species, may want to see some examples of the members of this species, as portrayed in the series, and the text in the article - aside from the descriptions Parasaurolophus, - offers very little to go by on this matter. Articles are also considered to be of higher quality, appearance-wise and informatively, if they have at least one image, and if there is an infobox in the article, it is also preferred that the image or one of the images be placed in there.

Article Judith Barsi
Portion used The entire of the original image is being used in this file.
Purpose of use The image is being used in the article: Judith Barsi because it is an article about the Land Before Time character Ducky's voice actress. It is used in the section "Role in The Land Before Time", to illustrate the voice actress's performance in that movie. Articles are also considered to be of higher quality, appearance-wise and informatively, if they have at least one image, and if there is an infobox in the article, it is also preferred that the image or one of the images be placed in there. So this image performs two purposes in the article it is being used in: 1. It serves to illustrate the article. 3. It allows for visual connection between the voice actress and her character.
