Description Jeremy C. Reed 2006-06-22 21:21:51 UTC
I am using http://openclipart.org/clipart/computer/8port_switch_denco.svg
in a printed book.

Today I saw that it contains:

cc:license rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/GPL/2.0/"

The webpage says "This project aims to create an archive of user contributed
clip art that can be freely used." and "All graphics submitted to the project
should be placed into the Public Domain according to the statement by the
Creative Commons."

While the above says "should be", the FAQ clearly and repeatedly says public domain.

Was this image license an oversight or my misunderstanding?

Can you please request for this license to be fixed? Or is it public domain? Or
is an alternative graphic available?

Does anyone have contact information for the artist "denco"?

If we don't know, then I think we have to delete this file. Can anyone find this person? I suggest mailing the mailing list and then if no response within a week, this file should be deleted...

Closing all openclipart bugs as openclipart is now on launchpad, as per request from  Jon Philips.
