You may not see them as derivative. Obviously they aren't "drawn" from the
This is what I'm asking is, how far do we take the extent of non-PD images
and the actual derivatives?
The (assumed) original author does seem to see them as derivative by using
the name and description.
In any case, it's a moot point since it seems that they already have a
licence on them.

This license has been chosen in order to protect the work of the Tux G2's
authors from the abuses of some companies. However, each of the conditions

Again, it seems that LGPL and PD clash. Is my understanding correct that we
can't have TinyTux, TuxG1, TuxG2 and

The images are the small icons to the left of the title. That page clearly
states who made them and what licence they are under. I think we can safely
assume that they are the same images as described by the text, descriptions
I might have to remove them from OCAL since they aren't public domain. :(
Why are we using Public Domain again?
