Non-free media information and use rationale for Asterix

Packaging of Asterix brand potato chips (crisps)


Manufactured by Belin, who presumably own the copyright, along with the Asterix stakeholders.



Portion used

Front of package

Low resolution?

Yes. (288 x 392 image)

Purpose of use

To illustrate the use of the Asterix "brand" to market a variety of products. Because Asterix is a comic book character, the visual juxtaposition of the character on the packet has an impact that cannot be made with pure text.


Can be replaced by a photo of a similar Asterix brand on another type of item. However, such a photo would have the same copyright issues as this one.

Other information

Note: the photo has been released into the public domain. This free-use rationale is for the copyright of the design of the packaging (which may or may not be relevant).
