By default any clipart from OCAL issued in Public Domain (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_domain) i.e. you can use it for any
purpose, commercial, non-commercial or whatever.

*NB - now default license is CC0 (http://creativecommons.org/choose/zero/) -
it is very close to meaning of PD. You're still free to use it in any

Of course, sometimes users of OCAL (especially new ones) not catch that all
work they submit to OCAL automatically goes to PD (CC0), so sometimes
copyright issues appear.
In this case, Gerald_G is well-known contributor, so you can use his clipart
without any concern about copyright problems.

Anyway - your decision to contact author for more confidence is more than

HTH, Oleg.

P.S. Welcome to community!
