This template is to help users write fair use rationales for non-free logos as required by WP:NFC, WP:LOGO, and WP:FURG. Include this in the image file after the {{non-free logo}} template, once for each time you insert the logo image into an article.

This template automatically inserts standard rationale text. For a "dumb" template with manually-added fields, see {{Non-free use rationale}}.

Please use copyrighted content responsibly and in accordance with Wikipedia policy. A template alone does not make a logo fair to use. It merely helps you state why you think it is appropriate.

This template is optimized for logos of brands/organizations used in the article about that brand/organization. Other contexts may work, but it may not. Before saving, try the "preview" feature to review the text produced by this template. Be sure the language is true and complete. If not consider using the override fields or a hand-written justification.
