[Fedora-legal-list] Paint-mono license



Hi,
    someone has updated Paint-mono entry in the Wishlist with the
following comment: "Cannot be included since Paint is partly licensed
under a non-commercial license".

This is the paint-mono license:
http://code.google.com/p/paint-mono/source/browse/trunk/src/Resources/Files/License.txt

I think that the offending part is:
* The Paint.NET logo and icon artwork are Copyright (C) Rick Brewster.
They are covered by the Creative Commons
Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 license which is detailed here:
http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/ . Permission is
granted to use the logo and icon artwork in ways that discuss or
promote Paint.NET (e.g. blog and news posts about Paint.NET, "Made
with Paint.NET" watermarks or insets).

Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs is a BAD license
for content:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing#Bad_Licenses_3

But if the problem is only the logo and the icon, cannot they be replaced?

Bye,

Andrea.
