I'll ask there.

That's why I asked. I'm getting the CDs (legal, legit copies) for
free, and had heard that clip art is usually in the PD. Many of the
files are supposedly in eps format, or could be potraced easily if
it's legal.

They do have lots of trademark images (Coke, Pepsi etc.), but most
aren't. If I am legally able to donate these to OCAL, I will. I
wouldn't want to put OCAL, or myself, into legal jeopardy however.

If the CC has good news, I'll come back here to continue this issue.
