A long-time (8+ years) Linux and Open Source user and advocate here. Also
crude semi-experienced bitmap graphics artist with basic Photoshop skills
(for my work at a television station). I am recently making the leap into
starting my own multimedia production company. I've searched the archives,
and believe I have found the answer to my following question, but want to
I am producing a program for television and web streaming, and would like to
use Tango graphics as a centerpiece of the show's "virtual props" and
on-screen art. I am trying my best to make sure I would be allowed to.
* I will certainly, and proudly, give credit to the Tango project, not only
on the website, but also in the on-air credits roll of the show itself.
* I will happily provide the rights to any custom icons I make in the
process of this show (I know already I'll need Tango icons for a rain drop,
a tornado, and a few other weather-related objects).
* I will promptly provide any modified icons back to the community, as
legally and morally obligated to (I might need to change a couple of
existing ones a bit).
* I plan on using these icons as decorations for the website also, but I
know this sort of thing is allowed as long as the rules are followed, not
worried about it.
* And I might use some of these icons (maybe even modified as above) in
business cards or promotional materials. I plan on making a copyright
citation for the Tango Project. Hopefully it'll fit on a business card.
To anyone's knowledge have the Tango icons appearaed on a television show or
other video before (besides screencasts, of course)?
And I hate to ask, since I pride myself on being self-sufficient on this
sort of thing, but I fear I might become crunched for time later on, and may
not be able to make all of the modified/original icons I need by myself. How
receptive and friendly is this list for simple icon creation requests? I
don't want to ask if it's considered rude.
Thank you all for your time and any help.
