"When you choose to place your work on a publicly accessible server, and when you decide to place it under a free software license, you give up the right to control what other people do with it." What about moral rights? Under most continental-european legislation, these cannot be given up, so certainly cannot be overriden by any open-source (or proprietary for that matter) license.
If the meaning of Oxygen's artwork is to express the greatness of the KDE desktop, then using them inside GNOME might well be a moral rights violation, as a "mis-use" of the protected work. IANAL though.
