Chuck_Berry_-_Johnny_B._Goode.ogg(Ogg Vorbis sound file, length 15 s, 58 kbps)


Short, relatively low-quality sound sample from " Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry.

Rationale of fair use for "Johnny B. Goode" audio sample

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

  • It illustrates an educational article specifically about the song from which this sample was taken.
  • It is a sample of less than 30 seconds and no more than 10% of the original recording, and could not be used as a substitute for the original commercial recording or to recreate the original recording.
  • It is of a lower quality than the commercially available digital versions of the original recording.
  • It is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted sample of comparable educational value.
  • 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 the quality of the article "Johnny B. Goode" without reducing the commercial value of the recording from which it was drawn. Please contact me if there are concerns about the fair use rationale based on the wishes of the editor who uploaded the latest sample version as of the date of this comment.
