Talk:Hundreds arrested for 'dark web' child porn by international task force

Latest comment: 4 years ago by SVTCobra in topic Main page image

Notes for the reviewer edit

  • I relied as much on the primary sources as the secondary sources
  • I hate the use of 38 countries without the full list, but that's what we have. However, the image (screenshot) lists a few more countries. Endorsed by the NCA is it cause enough to add Finland, France, Hungary and more? Since it is by the task force, is it valid as a source?

Review of revision 4522847 [Passed] edit

Main page image edit

@Pi zero: is it appropriate to use File:Seized Korean porn site screenshot as per NCA.jpg on the main page? Wikinews:Fair use doesn't explain the policy about the main page, but I know on enwiki its not allowed; technically, the main page is in the "main article namespace", but it isn't an article. --DannyS712 (talk) 04:26, 17 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wasn't SVTCobra saying something about thumbnails? --Pi zero (talk) 04:29, 17 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There it isn't a thumbnail, and its the main page (most highly viewed) - the image doesn't even link to the source! --DannyS712 (talk) 04:36, 17 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am aware of the policy of which Danny speaks. mikemoral has pointed it out in the past. Now I don't know what the framers of that policy had in mind when they wrote it. Did they imagine just an image by itself which linked to the article? I could see that as being problematic. However, I think one can easily argue that our abstract is in effect a mini article for which it is fair-use to illustrate. I am literally looking at my Google news feed right now and that same image is being used. And, DannyS712, we have a prominent "Image credit" link, something which Google and countless other sites don't even bother with. So is it against policy? Yes. Is it a violation of copyright law? No, not in the United States where news reporting is viewed very favorably when it comes to fair-use. --SVTCobra 18:16, 17 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
