j4p4n 2019-02-13 08:48:20 @GDJ, hmm. I wouldn't say it totally contradicts the FAQ, I mean you could make a license say whatever you want. So I agree it's stupid to say "You can use it anyway you want... except releasing it again." that is what they are saying. It's stupid but we need not to be in violation here, so we need to get some other opinions maybe?

Lazur URH 2019-02-13 07:35:10 @Onsemeliot You are right no copyright claims will ever be raised probably. Personally wouldn't say your image has an exact resemblence to the original graffiti piece and have no problems with it myself even if it would be 100% accurate. Yet openclipart is against mock logos and "inspirational" fan art as we saw it several times before so just pointed out as an interesting fact to keep in mind in the future. Also the copyright claim has even more controversy to it with some of those murals being sold at high prices. https:/uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-banksy/banksy-snow-pollution-mural-sold-for-over-100000-idUKKCN1PC196

Onsemeliot 2019-02-13 06:00:54 How can Banksy proof he didn't take an unknown original piece of art from someone else and re-combined it with a punch of flowers into the world-wide well known image. I would love to see this trial. I classify the wide usage of such images not only legal but also as intended by Banksy.

Onsemeliot 2019-02-13 05:51:34 Well, firstly, I the guy throwing a Molotov Cocktail was a design already published on OpenClipart. I just edited some also free flowers for his hand. Nowhere anything from Banksy was added. And secondly it would be difficult for Banksy to claim ownership of something since he doesn't reveal his identity. Therefore, anyone could claim to be the original creator of art that is (I don't know how) attributed to him (or her). At best this design was only inspired by Banksys work. He can't claim intellectual property on random designs just because they look similar to what he might have created.

It is a common myth that all redheads are white or have some, perhaps hidden, white ancestry, but genetic research has shown that is simply not true. Heck, even the wikipedia article on red hair starts: Red hair (or ginger hair) occurs naturally in one to two percent of the human population, appearing with greater frequency (two to six percent) among people of northern or western European ancestry and lesser frequency in other populations
