Um, OK…so which is it?
(ps: Creative Commons is not a license, it’s a suite of licenses. Which specific one did you mean?)
Sorry for the confusion. It is Creative Commons 3.0. Do not worry too much, you can use them on any personal or commercial projects as you want as long as you DO NOT SELL these icons. And DO NOT Release Downloads on any other sites. You can always point people to this article / source. We appreciate a little link love. Thanks. Hope you enjoy the icons. :)
Er, what’s wrong with this picture?
(For the record, I didn’t notice the reply, and this post has since received probably over 100 trackbacks. I still get link referrals from my comment, which was the first one, and which is how I noticed the reply just now.)
- this person doesn’t understand that “Creative Commons” is not a license, and “Creative Commons 3.0” is still not a license.
- all Creative Commons licenses allow redistribution without modification, which this person evidently is not aware of.
- some confusion about whether “selling” the icons could be a commercial use. (To be fair, this person could use a license with a NC clause and then give additional permission to use in commercial projects, that don’t involve directly selling the icons.)
I don’t really have a neat conclusion. It just amused me how far we have to come. BTW, the icons really are rather pretty.
