I've made a fairly realistic drawing of a guitar and
uploaded it to OCAL. A reviewer noticed that having
the logo featured could be a problem. I've already
removed the original name (Epiphone) from the file
name, should the logo be removed too?

In other words, what is the policy about this problem
on Openclipart? Is it "fair use", it is not, is it
art, etc. etc. There are other files naming brands
(for cars, especially), so I'm a bit lost here :)


N.B.: I'll remove the distinctive logo while waiting
for the answer. (sigh sigh)
