I read something different lately :
LinuxP2P: Can the GPL be applied to artwork? For example, most of the
people who submit wallpapers to KDE-Look.org submit them under the GPL,
would the GPL's terms still apply, considering it isn't software.
RMS: There must be some basic misunderstanding here. If a work is
released under the GPL, then the GPL's terms apply to it. How could it
possibly be otherwise?
