GPL icons

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 75.161.227.9] on September 28, 2007 03:42 AM
Very interesting read. I have put a lot of thought into this recently, in creating, and GPL-licensing an icon set for FileZilla3. (http://plurib.us/1shot/2007/filezilla-toolbar/ awkwardly in this context, GPL licensed through CC, at bottom of page.) //

It's a loaded one, but my biggest question is why can't I say also at the bottom, "Toolbar icons also wholly and separately licensed CC-BY"? The article seems to say I need to duplicate all my icons somewhere else, and differently license them there. (Would love for there to be a forum someplace where this could be discussed. Maybe here is the place.) //

Also, if it matters, I consider the "source code" of an image to be the format in which a new designer would likely want to make modifications. In my case, probably the "original" svg files.
