Btw, keep in mind with OCAL all content is Public Domain, whereas with
this new one there is more of a multiplicity of licenses including ones
requiring attribution or share-a-like, neither of which we enforce or
even strongly communicate in Inkscape right now.
For proper rights management at the document level, Inkscape would need
to somehow track the licenses of imported materials and then ensure only
license-compatible additions are presented to the user. Which would be
a very cool feature to have in Inkscape but is not on our roadmap right
Since OCAL materials are public domain we don't have to worry about any
of that. Users can safely trust that any clipart they load won't affect
their own personal copyright and licensing options, without thinking
If this new service has an appreciable amount of collateral that is also
public domain, and can give us a hook to pull only those items into
inkscape, then that would be the cleanest solution. Anything else would
(should) require making the Inkscape user aware of licensing conditions
Total agee. I want to get only full usable content.
I think this source have plenty of old impressive works. Also maybe have
a public domain recent works. I ping to the org about this thing.
