|Non-free media use rationale - non-free logo for RedLynx|
This is a logo for RedLynx.
The logo is from the http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:External_editors website.
The entire logo is used to convey the meaning intended and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the intended image.
The logo is of a size and resolution sufficient to maintain the quality intended by the company or organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution.
|Purpose of use||
The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing RedLynx, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.
Because it is a logo there is almost certainly no free equivalent. Any substitute that is not a derivative work would fail to convey the meaning intended, would tarnish or misrepresent its image, or would fail its purpose of identification or commentary.

The image is a scaled-down official logo of RedLynx Ltd. Fair use rationale for the image consists of the following: it is the logo of the main subject of the article and its being used as the primary means of visual identification of the subject. The resolution been reduced from the original to prevent it to be reused in unfit circumstances and it solely illustrates an educational article about the entity that the logo represents. As the logo is only used in the information box for the company, the logo is not used in a way that a reader would be confused into believing that the article is written or authorized by the owner of the logo. As it is a company logo, it is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted image of comparable educational value.
