We enforce the license at upload time, is not possible to submit a file 
without releasing it as PD.
Also, each file contain the license info (in this case Public Domain) in 
the metadata section of the SVG.
*All* the SVG images on our website are Public Domain.

Fell free to produce any kind of derivatives.

The requirements are as stated by the CC definition of Public Domain: 
none. Attribution would be nice but is not required.
