           Summary: wrong license?
           Product: openclipart.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: NetBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: clipart
        AssignedTo: clipart at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: reed at reedmedia.net

I am using http://openclipart.org/clipart/computer/8port_switch_denco.svg
in a printed book.

Today I saw that it contains:

cc:license rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/GPL/2.0/"

The webpage says "This project aims to create an archive of user contributed
clip art that can be freely used." and "All graphics submitted to the project
should be placed into the Public Domain according to the statement by the
Creative Commons."

While the above says "should be", the FAQ clearly and repeatedly says public domain.

Was this image license an oversight or my misunderstanding?

Can you please request for this license to be fixed? Or is it public domain? Or
is an alternative graphic available?
