Non-free media information and use rationale – non-free audio or music sample for Where the Wild Roses Grow

This is the sample from a recording of the single Where the Wild Roses Grow by the artist Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Kylie Minogue. Copyright in the recording is believed to belong to the label, Mute, or the composer and performers.


A version can or could be obtained from Mute.


Where the Wild Roses Grow

Portion used

A short section sufficient to identify the work concerned, or to aid in critical commentary of the work

Low resolution?

The sample is of reduced quality (and/or timespan) compared to the original, yet of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable for 'unauthorised distribution' or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original recording.

Purpose of use

Section. The audio sample is used for identification in the context of critical commentary of the work for which it serves as sample. It makes a significant contribution to the user's understanding of the article, which could not practically be conveyed by words alone. The audio sample is placed at the beginning of the section discussing the work, to help the user quickly identify the work and know they have found what they are looking for.
Use for this purpose stated does not compete with the purposes of the original recording, namely the artist's providing a musical performance or recording services to audio or music production concerns and in turn marketing music or audio recordings to the public.


As a sample from a copyright musical recording, the sample is not replaceable by free content; any other sample from the same recording would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary. Using a different sample would be misleading as to the identity of the work.

Other information

Use of the sample in the article is understood to be compatible with Wikipedia non-free content policy and fair use under United States copyright law as described above. Use of this sample outside of Wikipedia may be subject to other terms.

Fair use rationale

This is a sound sample from a commercial recording. Its inclusion here is claimed as fair use because:

  • it complies with guidelines as described at Wikipedia:Music samples
  • file was created in Ogg Vorbis format, with a quality setting of 0
  • it is a sample of 21 seconds which is <10% of the original recording of 3 minutes, 55 seconds
  • its length and quality would not readily allow it to be used as a substitute for the original commercial recording
  • it is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted sample of comparable educational value.
  • it illustrates an educational article that specifically discusses the song from which this sample was taken
  • it is believed that this sample will not affect the value of the original work or limit the copyright holder's rights or ability to distribute the original recording.

I believe that this use of the excerpt is in good faith, and that its inclusion enhances rather than reduces the commercial value of the recording from which it was drawn.
