These works are copyrighted, but released for use in news and editorials. The individuals who upload these works and use them in articles, and subsequent persons who place it into articles assert that this qualifies as fair use of the material under United States copyright law.

Publicity photos must be tagged with the {{publicity}} template.

Public figures, places, and more may have photos made available for use by the media. These images are usually copyrighted and are released specifically to present the figure, location, or corporation in a positive light. They should be viewed critically for this form of bias.

Example of appropriate use: Original graphic of Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin from the Canadian Government in an article about his visit to the United States.

Publicity images from the Canadian Government are copyright and licensed for restricted use, which makes them non-free. An original unaltered image in an article about the figure is appropriate.

Example of inappropriate use: The same image, with the logo of the Liberal Party of Canada added to the graphic. Or the image used in an article about politicians in which Paul Martin is not specifically named.

Copyrighted images may not be altered or defaced. Images used must be specifically relevant to the story they illustrate.
Note
it is no longer appropriate to use a publicity photo of someone who has a free photo, or if it is fairly easy to obtain a free photo of that person.
