Isn't this copyrighted to the makers of the website or id? Who is like God? 14:43, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Probably so, but this use of the picture might fall under fair use policy. It's safer to leave it off, but as a compromise I think maybe some sort of mention that Ian Kelliher is the head of the UAC in the expanded universe cannot hurt the article this was being used in (UAC).

It can hurt the article as random "expanded universe" information, which doesn't apply to the UAC in the original DOOM games. That detail belongs to the phony UAC website for the mobile game, for which there is a small section where the picture wouldn't fit very well. The detail that the named character is the CEO does not really have any special significance outside the bogus site (which speaks for itself) unless the character appears in the game or some other similar relation is made somewhere. (This is what I referred to when I said it was "random", in the comment where I removed the image from the article). Who is like God? 20:44, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I think I understand what you're saying. Because the "character" is certainly not an "actor" (as the modification said), and has no relevance to the original game (in fact, no relevance to the Doom RPG plot either) then he is simply a minor detail that is not worth mentioning. It would be just as trivial to say that Flynn Taggart shaves his balls every Sunday whether it was mentioned in any of the novels or not. It has no effect on that particular universe (let alone the original games). Zack 21:40, 21 October 2008 (UTC)


Following the above reasoning, I propose to delete the image.  Even if our expanded universe information was someday comprehensive enough to include these details, we would just be parroting data from the copyrighted web site; images in particular are not really justified in that case.    Ryan W 04:57, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
