A description of the copyrighted material. Always include the copyright holder here.
Where you acquired the copyrighted material, or how you recreated it.
The exact name of the Wikipedia article in which the media is to be used (unlinked, as the template will link automatically).
How much copyrighted material is used? The amount used must not make the work as a whole less valuable to the copyright holder.
Low resolution
Is the material in a lower resolution that would be unlikely to impact the copyright owner's ability to resell or otherwise profit from the work? For raster images, this would be strictly the resolution (in pixels) of the picture used; for vector graphics, this would involve the level of detail in the image; for audio, this would be the bit rate and sample resolution used.
How does the media contribute significantly to the article(s) in which it is used? The use of the media must not interfere with the media's original purpose.
Explain why sourced text or equivalent free content media (perhaps to be obtained or created) could not adequately convey the article subject.
Other information
If applicable, provide any other information that justifies the current use of this non-free media. This variable is optional, and can be blank or removed.
