This is a screencapture of a 1987 event described at wikipedia:Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion incident and the image originates from Wikipedia. It is uploaded here using the same Fair Use criteria described therein:

  1. it is a historically significant screenshot
  2. it is of much lower resolution than the original broadcast
  3. the screenshot is only being used for informational purposes
  4. its inclusion in the article adds significantly to the article because it shows the character and nature of the pirate broadcast transmitted
  5. The individual(s) responsible for this broadcast have never publicly identified themselves or have been identified by third parties, thus no copyright claim has ever been made.
  6. It is irreplaceable by a free image that would convey the same information as this event only took place over a period of a couple minutes and only successfully broadcast on one TV station. Only fair-use TV screenshots exist of the event.

The rationale for use on the Doctor Who TARDIS Index File wiki, specifically the article Horror of Fang Rock is that this is a unique and unusual event in the broadcast history of the Doctor Who franchise and pertains specificially to a broadcast of this story.

Given the illegal nature of the broadcast, and the fact station WTTW, Chicago, did not authorize it, and that those responsible have never been caught (as of August 2009), it is unlikely any copyright claim could or will be made on this image.

This work is copyrighted. The individual who uploaded this work and first used it in an article, and subsequent persons who place it into articles, assert that this qualifies as fair dealing of the material under UK, Australian, or Canadian copyright law and fair use of the material under United States copyright law.
