I disagree that clipart of michael jackson is clearly infringing. It depends
on how the clipart is made and where it's made from. e.g. if they took the
photo themselves, and then traced over it, that would be ok. If it's traced
off a tv or movie, probably not. If it's a trace of a pd photo, or
government photo then it's probably ok, but you might like to tag such
photos as pd_issue.

Yes Hide. copyrighted.

I don't know. As far as I'm aware it's good clipart. Ask Jon if he'll allow
this sort of thing on OCAL. Personally I think it's fine. tag it as pd_issue
if it's a concern to you.

I don't think it should be hidden. It looks like clipart to me, and as far
as I'm aware there's no poster that this is from. tag it as pd_issue if it's
a concern.

This is a vector of the real life image. I don't think it needs to be
hidden. I'm not an expert either. The trouble happens when it's clipart
based off 2d artwork. The same could be said for darth vader. I don't really
know to be honest. It's probably safer to hide it, or at the very least
leave it active but tag it as pd_issue, so that the copyright warning
appears. (Or of it is from the movie, then it might be infringing

Yeah hide them and state "hidden because it was blank" or something.
