Yeah but also if marked so, not every clipart is in the public domain. 
As I said in the beginning of the year already, cliparts made by Gerald 
G. featuring W.Korn are statet as free. That can mean everything. Also 
free for personal use but not for commercial. The member wkdesign is W. 
Korn and he stated clearly to me that his images are not in the public 

My guess is some people load up their cliparts or other peoples work and 
don't read or don't understand the upload rules at OCAL.

If you want to use images from openclipart.com for t-shirt printing let 
me tell you there is a risk. Definitly don't use things involving 
company names, famous logos, celebrities etc. Those cliparts may be in 
the public domain, but that doesn't mean they are free of 3rd party 
rights too.
