(I'll be CCing this to Cari)

Thank you for bringing this up Greg.

I disagree.

If this is the claimed knot as hers

You can see that it is different. Check the lines and route of the OCAL
knot. Some of the gaps and overlaps are quite different.

Cari is going to need to provide more proof than a copyright register number
(with no pictures). A source or photograph of said copyright infringement
would be helpful. Doing it the DMCA way would also be helpful. If we do get
the proof, I will take OCAL's one down. http://www.openclipart.org/dmca. I
would encourage Cari to talk to me.

Cari's claim Registered: 2001-07-26
Her picture : *Copyright Cari Buziak,
 OCAL Knot Created:2007-09-29 07:13:56

Other knots I've googled :
http://cliparts101.com/free_clipart/11866/TrinityKnot.aspx (likely to be
from OCAL)

While she's at it, she could also check the other celtic cliparts on OCAL to
see if there are any other infringements.
