The biggest problem I've seen is the creation of derivatives without
permission. This results in:

1)stuff with a rather messy copyright situation

The copyright status of these two images is one example:


2)more unfree media being created

The pure logos are something we have to accept. The derivatives is an
issue that we cannot continue to ignore forever
