OSM t-shirt

Hi! You know that the real OSM t-shirt wasn't actually white, right? ;) Ojw 22:23, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

OSM logo license

Hi, why that change? Under which version did the author license it? --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 00:18, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

When the "CC Attribution-ShareAlike" option is ticked in Inkscape 0.48, it produces the following URL in the SVG file code:
http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/
There is no other option. As far as I know CC-by-sa-3.0 supersedes CC-by-sa-2.0. — User8192T @ 04:27, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. Cc-by-sa-3.0 is a later version and using version 2 works together with version 3 work is possible, yes (version 3 for the result then). What I am interested in, is where the author originally published that logo and which license it was at this time. The first file version here does not have a license specified. Just reply here, please. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 11:13, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
If it causes legal problems at OSM to specify any type of license in SVG files, there are other possibilities:
1. Select "Public Domain" in Inkscape;
2. Manually edit the SVG file with a text editor and strip out the XML code for the license completely, leaving the file with no license, whereby I think it would effectively become Public Domain;
3. Select "Other", which leaves the XML code for a license in the SVG file, but the value is null, i.e., no license; or,
4. Select "Attribution-ShareAlike" in Inkscape, then edit the "URI" box to change "3.0" in the URL to "2.0".
It might be better if the OSM project kept up with the times and updated its license policy from CC BY-SA 2.0 to CC BY-SA 3.0, so users of software like Inkscape wouldn't need to hack the graphics files before uploading to the wiki. — User8192T @ 20:16, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
