This is a piece I've done for one of my recent blog posts about copyright law and a critique of an article on the Linux Journal: [link]

It shows two people who want to fix copyright, one wants to modify it (with the spanner) and the other wants to destroy it (with a hammer). I've also added Creative Commons (CC) as a cog connected to the bigger Copyright cog to emphasise the relationship and that copyright protection is a key component in copyleft licenses such as Creative Commons and GPL.

As always, download the SVG and keep as a resource if you like it.

Just want to let you know we used your fabulous cc-licensed image as the picture of our response to ASCAP's recent attack on Creative Commons licensing -- a remix event at ccmixter.org. [link] Thanks for sharing!

thanks for letting me know that you found the image useful. Do let me know if you need the svg.

(btw, it's not a photo)

Thank you. Everyone on the admin team thinks your image is a perfect graphic representation of the themes of our project. I asked the admin to correct the language so it does not refer to your image as a "photo."

hehe, not sure I can say anything more. The image does a great job of speaking for itself. ;)

Thanks :-) Sometimes the simple symbolism can be interestingly powerful.
