Screen capture from DOOM Resurrected (Part 1) - To Hell & Back, the noclip Doom (2016) development documentary. Screenshot of an imp-like, leaping enemy which later became the prowler.


This is a screenshot of a commercially published video game, utility program, or other software associated with the Doom universe. The design and artwork depicted in the screenshot are probably under the copyright of id Software, ZeniMax Media, or others. If so, the content pictured herein is displayed strictly under fair use for purposes of illustrating the work in its own article or in the context of a closely related subject. Other uses, on the Doom Wiki or elsewhere, may constitute copyright infringement. The creator of the screen shot claims no additional copyright on the composition of the image.

It is believed that the use of such screenshots in the Doom Wiki qualifies as fair use because:

  • No freely licensed equivalent can exist. In some cases, the software's functionality could conceivably be replicated by a free alternative, but such an alternative would be insufficient to the Doom Wiki's goal of documenting the original creative work.
  • The screenshot is used to convey ideas which cannot be adequately represented by text alone, as part of a journalistic or analytical discussion about some aspect of the software, or a historical record of its context in the Doom community. The image is never used in a purely decorative manner.
  • The screenshots included in the Doom Wiki represent a trivially small portion of the original copyrighted media, which in no way replaces the reader's experience of using the software. Therefore, their reproduction here does not infringe on the market role of the copyrighted publication.
  • The image was captured by the person who uploaded it.
  • The graphics are unmodified from their original form, possibly excepting simple labeling and scaling.
  • For each image on the Doom Wiki, an associated description page attributes its source and details the rationale for fair use of copyrighted material. This description page is easily accessible whenever the image is presented in an article.

This image is a frame capture from a video, and the copyright for it is most likely owned either by the film maker, producer, or studio that created the video. It is believed that the use of low-resolution single-frame captures1 from videos

  • to illustrate an article discussing the contents or subject matter of the video in question
  • on The Doom Wiki, hosted on servers in the United States by MancuNET,

qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Other use of this image, on this site or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement.

To the uploader: please add a detailed fair use rationale for each use, as described on Wikipedia:Image description page, as well as the source of the work and copyright information.

1 cf. Sony v Bleem decision section C [29].
