This might be a great question to pose to someone at creative commons. How
much would one have to change an image for it to be considered a work in its
own right. Please refer to our project, www.openclipart.org
We use the Creative Commons public domain declaration for the project.
We are collecting a large library of public domain vector graphics (SVG).
Thanks for any advice.
