[Clipart] mihmo: Deviant Art doesn't understand what public domain means?

A colleague of mine (from Fedora Art) created a set of GIMP brushes with 
a "pirates" theme (around the "talk like a pirate day") using images 
from Open Clip Art Library.

She listed all the source images used, with links to the sources at 
openclipart.org and mentioned our PD license. Well, that was not "good", 
someone reported the submission and a "staff member" reviewed the 
complaint and deleted it for "copyright violation", read all the 
details: http://mihmo.livejournal.com/63167.html

I think it is important for our (OCAL) credibility and the problem may 
come from the images vectorized by "johnny automatic" (in that 
particular case, some *really old*, out-of-copyright drawings).
