Fair use[edit]

I don't edit here alot, so I'm not if rules are different, but in Wikipedia you normally need a decent reason to put up pictures, like having a picture of Tsunetomo, Masashige, the dude in the statue, has nothing to do with Tsunetomo. In fact I don't think a single one of these pictures has anything to do with Tsunetomo, they're just Japanese pictures with redundant quotes underneath. Might as well put up pictures of John A. MacDonald on the quotes page for Robert E. Lee. So, if my deleting them is wrong, I beg your forgiveness. Well, I say sorry anyways.

    • I think that the picture(s) doesn't have to actually be of the person (all know it does help) but if it relates to the quote then there ok in my book. On the other hand I don't know what you mean by 'redundant quotes'. a) there time is up?? A quote will forever echo in time --McNoddy 09:16, 1 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • After doing some reseach, it would seem that all the pictures relate to the Samuri in some sort of way which Tsunetomo was. Am going to put the pictures back up as they illustrate the samuri way.--McNoddy 09:39, 1 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • I don't think thats how fair use works, it has to actually relate directly to that person. And they were all very different types of samurai, they all lived during very different time periods, Tsunetomo never saw a war, samurai in other time periods would of considered that to be very unsamurai like.
          • Oh, and by redundant quotes I mean the quotes under the pictures, they are already in the text, they are there twice, redundant, redundant has nothing to do with time. I'm reverting it back after I read the Fair Use article on wiki, I don't see how its fair use to use these images, the one with the guy committing suicide would be okay for an article on him (I forgot his name right now though) or on committing suicide or seppeku (because thats what hes doing) or death poetry (because his death peom is written on the picture in the corner), but to be here in something that has nothing to do with him with a quote that has nothing to do with him (when he has his own written in the corner). If you want images get images from a copy of Hagakure, that would be fair use.
            • Vaguely related to this previous line of discussion, why are all the pictures in this article random samurai and Japanese pictures? If we had quotes from save, Sir Francis Bacon, we wouldn't have a picture of Nelson's Column, just cause they're both English, not how fair use works, fan boys who think everything Japanese is cool. 20:37, 5 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
