The very first text one can see on our website is:

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

I thinks this is good enough, we can put an icon 
(http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/pd.png), but anything else would be too 
intrusive. Putting a big "FREE!!!" text or icon would make us look like 
scam sites which attempt to install spyware.

IMO, the "problem" is we are too disruptive, people are brainwashed by 
the copyright cartel and just can't believe we are releasing content 
absolutely free, without requiring anything back, and ask for confirmation.
