The Artwork team treats art in Fedora just like the developers and
packagers treat code.  There is a simple solution to any problems with
the artwork in question -- Samuele, just replace any image that is not
freedom-licensed with one that is! :-)

It's absolutely OK to be inspired by something that's non-free.  Using
non-free elements for examples for the first round (or two) is probably
even OK.  But at this point in the cycle, you should have replaced any
non-free elements with free ones.  If you do that, there is no reason
the theme can't be in Fedora.  The only thing standing in the way is the
non-free element you're using.

Fedora is all about giving our users and contributors freedom -- freedom
to use, modify and redistribute, now and always.  If we were to give
them artwork that doesn't have that level of freedom, we would be
putting a legal burden on them.  That's not the right thing to do, and
it's not in the letter or spirit of how Fedora works.  All we're asking
is that the contributors to our themes live by the same rules as
everyone else who contributes to Fedora.
