Hi :)
I think it's pretty much at your own discretion then, realistically.  I
can't imagine anyone grumbling about you using the images in that sort of
context without proper attribution!

Without actually having a look i would guess that the images are licensed
under the CC-by-SA license, as is the documentation, the wiki and almost
everything else other than the code itself which has a similar copyleft
license.  I don't see why the gallery would be any different!

I have attached 2 images.  The smaller one really should go on the card
somewhere discretely, if possible, but it's more out of politeness rather
than worrying about breaking some rule or law.  It might be better to
instead have the larger one on some other marketing materials, perhaps a
flyer or website and on that mention that the art on the card (or on all
marketing materials?) is licensed under a Creative Commons license and give
the line of text and the bigger image.
Probably this one

You might find this interesting (just the top paragraph
and this small list of open-clipart

Tom, Thanks for the quick reply and useful advice. To add some context to
my question: I used a couple of images and added some text. It is just for
starting up a self-employment consulting business - adds some interest to
the business card. So I am not too concerned about copyrighting my design.
I won't be printing thousands of cards.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Use of Libre Impress Gallery Images

Hi :)
I think they are all under a Creative Commons license aren't they?   If
so then i think you can use as they are, or modify and either way use or

It might be easier to help if we knew the context of this.  The
"copyright" is usually very flexible and even allows usage of materials and
designs to help with profit-making ideas.  It's a case of trying to find
how to try to show the copyright label, if possible, but without creating a
problem.  The licenses are intended to be permissive rather than
restrictive = to increase the possibilities of getting the images widely
distributed and used in many different contexts.

If it's for just 1 business card then i'd suggest thinking again about
the whole concept of logos, branding and marketing = ie it's best to use
the designs to create your own unique logo and then find a suitable
Creative Commons license to copyright it to prevent your branding from
getting too diluted.  It might be good to use the tiny copyright image, if
it can fit, rather than using the full strap-line!

If, on the other hand, it's for some sort of pamphlet to show off layouts
and designs so that customers can imagine their own logo replacing the
images then fine, go ahead = just try to find a place somewhere in the
pamphlet to show that all card-designs are subject to the appropriate
Creative Commons license but you'd only need to do that once for the whole

to use the Impress Gallery images for such things as business logos on
cards etc?
