{{DVDcover}}
links talk view

This image is of a DVD cover, and the copyright for it is most likely owned by either the publisher of the DVD or the studio which produced the DVD in question. It is believed that the use of low-resolution images of DVD covers

qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other uses of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, might be copyright infringement. See Fair use for more information.


It is believed that this image is subject to fair use because:

  • It is a low resolution copy of a DVD set cover;
  • Its use does not limit the copyright owner's rights to sell the DVD in any way;
  • The image is being used in an informative way and should not detract from the original work;
  • Copies could not be used to make illegal copies of the set artwork on another DVD;
  • No free or public domain images have been located.
  • This applies to DVD covers.
{{Screenshot}}
links talk view
These images are screenshots of a copyrighted © television program. As such, the copyright for them is most likely owned by the company or corporation that produced it. Though these images are subject to copyright, it is believed that their use qualifies as Fair use under U.S. fair use laws when used on the DC Animated Universe Wiki, hosted on servers in the United States by Wikia, Inc., because:
  1. The images have a brief description that identifies them, and provides attribution to the copyright holder.
  2. The images are only being used as the primary means of visual identification of the subject and for informational purposes.
  3. As screenshots, the images are not replaceable by free content; any other images of the work would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or critical commentary.
  4. The images are significant in illustrating the subjects of the articles, facilitating critical commentary as they provide an immediate relevance to the reader more capably than the textual description alone.
  5. The images are of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original. Copies made from them will be unsuitable as artwork on counterfeit goods or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original work.
  6. The use of the images does not in any way affect the value of the original work or limit the copyright holder's rights or ability to market or sell their product.

Any other uses of these images elsewhere might be copyright infringement. For more information, see Copyrights.


If you are the copyright holder of these images and you feel that their use here does not fall under "fair use," please contact one of the Administrators.

  • This applies to episodes' screenshots.
{{Logo}}
links talk view

This is a logo of an organization, item, or event, and is protected by copyright and/or trademark. It is believed that the use of low-resolution images of logos

qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other uses of this image elsewhere may be copyright infringement. Certain commercial use of this image may also be trademark infringement. See Wikipedia:Fair use and Wikipedia:Logos.

Use of the logo here does not imply endorsement of the organization by the DC Animated Universe Wiki or Wikia, Inc., nor does it imply endorsement of the DC Animated Universe Wiki or Wikia, Inc. by the organization.

  • This applies to logotypes.
{{Promotional}}
category links talk view

This is a copyrighted image that has been released by a company or organization to promote their work or product in the media, such as advertising material or a promotional photo in a press kit.

The copyright for it is most likely owned by the company who created the promotional item or the artist who produced the item in question; you must provide evidence of such ownership. Lack of such evidence is grounds for deletion.

It is believed that the use of low-resolution images of promotional material

  • to illustrate the work or product being discussed;
  • where the image is unrepeatable, i.e. a free image could not be created to replace it;
  • on the DC Animated Universe Wiki, hosted on servers in the United States by Wikia, Inc.,

qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other uses of this image elsewhere may be copyright infringement. See Copyrights for more information.


It is believed that this image is subject to fair use because:

  • Its use is entirely encyclopedic, as it is used to depict a season of the show;
  • Its use in no way limits or hinders the makers from selling or marketing their work;
  • The image is being used in an informative way and should not detract from the original work;
  • This applies to promotional pictures.
