Hi!

I would like to known what is the licence of the artwork used during
haiku boot sequence (the 7 icons going from b&w to color):

I'm not sure. I think they are all up for grabs... Someone please correct me if 
I'm wrong.

Sometimes, I'm also not sure if that is such a good idea. As for the BeOS, Haiku's icons are a pretty strong factor of recognition. I wonder if we shouldn't have tried to protect them like the Haiku brand. OTOH, why should the creative output in the design department be treated any different than our Free source code? Hmmm... I'm torn. :)

Maybe someone in the know can lay Olivier's concerns officially to rest. And maybe add this issue to an FAQ somewhere?

Good luck with your project, Olivier!

Humdinger
