By "reasonable checks" would you suggest sending an inquiry email to the contact address at clipart.info to see if we could confirm the intent of W. Korn to place these on OCAL.

my  thoughts are -

1. we need to do the same reasonable checks for copyright issues that we would do for any external source.

2. if these are the original designs of wkdesign and/or W. Korn then maybe they need a reminder that placing them here exposes them to a broader release of copyright then the "non-commercial use only" that you point out on your review.  Obviously, once someone gives it to the PD one cannot take it back for private use.
