Hi, Dirk, The fault is mine ... I used a generic template in the early days of setting up the PAL database, and I obviously forgot to remove it in all cases. The "See individual files" part was placed there to cover ZIP files primarily that contained other release notice information. To the best of my knowledge, the intent of the pictures like ladyada is to be freely available and use with unlimited distribution.

On the one hand, the page mentions: ------- RIGHTS Approved for public release; distribution unlimited [...] ABSTRACT Icons and other Ada-oriented artwork, suitable for copying and reproduction in papers, presentations, and other forms [...] RELEASE NOTICE Approved for public release; distribution unlimited ------- but on the other hand also: ------- COPYRIGHT See individual files ------- However, the ladyada.* files do NOT contain any copyright notice. Anyone cares to advice whether this picture can be used, or where an answer to that question can be found? Thanks for any help. Dirk PS: (*) On the new AdaIC Web-server, these graphics do not seem to be linked into the Web-pages (yet), but the directory is there (although with several broken links, probably just part of a physical copy of the old AJPO directory tree). No extra information on copyrights is available there, though.
