This being something for end users to use, I can't but help to tell you
that something like the license bit there becomes very irrelevant - most
users don't want to know what license clipart is being released

GPL'ing clipart is also a big mistake, but this is a license issue (I
think we've mentioned some of this on the OOo lists) - no one wants their
documents GPLed just because they've used some GPL-styled clipart

Keeping such license information there clutters the UI - maybe a button to
click, and on click, you get the license information?
