Hello FurMaster1987,

This is in regards to Image:Proud furry huge.gif. It has not been tagged with a copyright status. This can be a complicated area, so I can try to help if you need any. The Wikipedia Image use policy may give some background, but it isn't policy here.

To deal with this image, there are a few choices:

  • If you are the copyright holder, release it under a free license, for example:
  • If you are asserting that this image is usable under fair use, add an appropriate fair use tag. A very basic summary is that fair use is used for commentary, criticism and review on the image when no free image could be used instead. Some fair use tags are:
    • Logos: {{logo}}
    • Covers: {{Cover}}
    • Comic panels: {{Comic-panel}}
  • If the image is already under a free license, provide information on the license, and tag the image if you can.
  • If you would like the image to be deleted, ask any administrator

To see a list of current copyright tags available on WikiFur, see Category:Image copyright tags If the copyright status is not resolved, the image may be deleted.

Unless you have a question for me specifically, I'd prefer responses on the page for the image. --Rat 07:17, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

I can't be certain, but I do believe this MAY be Public Domain. The artist is John "Gneech" Roby and I believe he released it to PD. Might be worth checking out.--Kendricks Redtail
here is our take on it. Copyright information can be found here.--Kendricks Redtail
Ok, it may be fair use on an article about the image, but not on a User page. The page,, says "personal use only" and "all other use, including commercial use of any kind, is forbidden without express written consent", so unless additional information becomes known, I think we can host it here in fair use contexts only. --Rat 09:27, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
