== Image:Russian Blue 001.gif was uploaded from Commons without correct real name of author ==
The subject image was uploaded from Wikimedia Commons, using the pseudonym "Russkis" as the author. As can be seen here, the pseudonym of the original creator is MGA7. Looking at his user page discloses that he lives in Denmark and his first forename (given name) is Michael ... but his surname is not disclosed. I have posted a message on his user talk page here, asking him if he would give me his real surname and I am awaiting a response. If he should fail to respond or responds negatively, then regretfully the image will need to be removed from Citizendium. Milton Beychok 06:08, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Fair Use rationale

The image is used to identify the International Organization for Standards. 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. 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 organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution. 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.
