Oxygen Refit != Oxygen

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 78.51.77.160] on November 04, 2007 04:37 PM
Oxygen Refit is not a 1:1 copy of Oxygen. Oxygen Refit contains only 10 - 15% of Oxygen, the other Icons _do not_ come from Oxygen. Another Thing: Why are they only attacking Oxygen Refit and not OxyGnome, the second one is a 1:1 Port of Oxygen for Gnome!
Furthermore Oxygen is also available for KDE3 so it has been "stealed" three times but it was ignored two times. Why?
Both the CC and LGPL3 allow the reuse, if they don't want others to use their work, they should release it under an Non-OS license.
There are other People, too who release their Icons under OS-Licenses, but they don't complain about a reuse, because they know, that they allowed it.
