|Logo artwork license||0||22:09, 16 November 2011|
Nov 18: removed the eV approval line Nov 18: clarified lots of things, reviewed by Boud and proofread by Irina
Nov 18: added alternative very dark colors
Nov 18: changed to: Artwork sizes The Calligra Suite logo is available in a range of sizes. The minimum size for the logo for printouts is 40x24mm or 55x39mm with clearance zone, as shown. For screens it is 100x71 pixels. +added info about size in pixels to the graphics
Notes (js): Now this makes me thinking that the 'easy way' would be to declare the artwork under one license and it is enough to have CC-BY-SA 3.0 and nothing else. [side note: Not the LGPL as this license really never was either a requirement for use in or aside of a (L)GPL software. It's use in KDE comes from habits more than enforcing anything that is not in free CC licenses. Artists prefer the CC after all.]
To check requirements of the most demanding group, debian-legal, (already mentioned in the thread not once) I found out that CC-BY-SA 2.0 is not only approved by Debian Free Software Guidelines but approved as a "big license", i.e. recommended . History of the approval
Why only CC? Interesting fact worth adding, excerpt from the CC-BY-SA 3.0  indicating that distortion of the logo cannot be performed to harm/alter our visual identity (intentional or not):
4.d. Except as otherwise agreed in writing by the Licensor or as may be otherwise permitted by applicable law, if You Reproduce, Distribute or Publicly Perform the Work either by itself or as part of any Adaptations or Collections, You must not distort, mutilate, modify or take other derogatory action in relation to the Work which would be prejudicial to the Original Author's honor or reputation. [..]
There's noting like 'distortion' term in LGPL because it's about code, not content.
Thus I'd like to ask if there are any objections to make the logo CC-BY-SA 3.0 -licensed and if there are, propose voting on the logo licensing and move to next tasks.
