Portion used

The entire front cover. The entire image is needed to identify the book, including the specific edition, help confirm bibliographic data, properly convey the meaning intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.

Resolution reduced?

This resolution is significantly reduced, and could not plausibly be used to make publishable copies of the original.

Fair Use Image Rationale
Purpose of use The image is used as the primary means of visual identification of the book and edition involved and to confirm the accuracy of such bibliographic data as title, publisher, price, and cover artist.
Replaceable?

As a book cover, the image is not replaceable by free content; any other image that shows the cover of the book would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary.

Rationale

The use of this image, in connection with the display of bibliographic information about a specific edition of Example Book: A Case Study, as part of the ISFDB, a non-profit bibliographic reference work, on servers located within the United States, is believed to constitute Fair Use within the meaning of United States copyright law.

Reusers of the ISFDB's content should take care to be sure that their use conforms to applicable copyright law -- not all such uses will constitute fair use, and copyright law varies significantly in different nations.
