Yes we did have this issue, but on different clipart. I was just
supporting the conclusion that I read from that thread.
I think it does matter that other sites restrict use of their stuff. As
I said on some other issues, I really don't care, either way, I just
want to be sure I'm taking the right actions. I don't like to make this
kind of messy "legal" and "moral" decision, so I'll support the decision
we come to. I've been trying to pin Jon down on this issue for awhile
now for him to make a decision on it, but he keeps dodging. :-)
Ultimately it's "his" site, so a decision from him on this would be
nice. Do we ignore their Few Exceptions or do we consider their PD
free-game (and us viewed as a "bully".)
At the moment I think our policy on "safe" PD stops us from using any
clipart from sites that make silly exceptions like this, because once
you put any requirements on a PD clipart, it's no longer PD.
I would like some clarity on this, and I think ultimatelt only the Site
Owners (Jon + ?) can decide. We can try to influence them either way.
I'm against taking clipart from sites that make exceptions like these.
John Olson is against (as far as I understand.) I think Nicubunu might
be against, but I'm not sure.
Jarod is for "not caring" about their exceptions.
Anyone else want to have their say?
