This is not a simple logo as the uploader claimed. I doubt that the circle is too simple. C3F2k (Questions, comments, complaints?) 22:35, 10 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Symbol keep vote.svg Keep - PD-textlogo applies. Ices2Csharp (talk) 14:56, 15 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol delete vote.svg Delete - the logo is too complex to not be copyrighted IMO. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:13, 15 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep Per nom. It still being a circle. Tbhotch 20:09, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
There are still small touches on there, and I think they could be copyrighted. C3F2k (Questions, comments, complaints?) 01:35, 22 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment All of the files that you mentioned are now included in this DR. C3F2k (Questions, comments, complaints?) 15:05, 25 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question We have the Chromium logos (e.g. File:Chromium 11 Wordmark Logo.svg) which are licensed under {{BSDu}}. This is basically the same logo, although some colours have been changed and a word has been modified. Can't we see the Chrome logo as a derivative work of the Chromium logo? The differences ("ium" changed into "e", change of some colours) look very simple and are unlikely copyrightable. --Stefan4 (talk) 23:51, 20 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
So this might be a derivative work, then? C3F2k (Questions, comments, complaints?) 01:30, 22 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
If it is a derivative work, it's derivative of a free work, so free as well. Ices2Csharp (talk) 07:11, 22 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, that's what I meant: if this is a derivative work of the Chromium logo, then the Chrome logo is free since the differences are below the threshold of originality. --Stefan4 (talk) 17:29, 24 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Not necessarily... a derivative work has additional copyrightable expression on top of the original, and we need that additional expression licensed as well. While some free licenses mandate that derivative works also have the same free license, not all of them do (CC-BY for example). And even if using a license like CC-BY-SA, if the derivative author does not declare their portion to be licensed as well, it's not a good idea to assume the license -- that author may be committing copyright infringement by distributing a derivative work not licensed correctly, but that does not necessarily mean they have actually licensed their expression. They could choose to stop distributing their work as a remedy to the infringement, or make a payment to the author of the underlying work to obtain a different license, etc. (or maybe they already have and it's just not apparent). Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:11, 29 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
That makes a difference. After that, the only differences are the choice of the three colors, and I don't think that's enough to support a separate copyright. The elements I was more concerned about all appear in the licensed image above. Carl Lindberg (talk) 16:05, 29 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • the logo is too complex to not be copyrighted IMO, but is derivative of Chromium logos, so we need to change licence Bulwersator (talk) 19:18, 24 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Changed the licence to what the Chromium image is under. C3F2k (Questions, comments, complaints?) 20:15, 24 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
