Yes it was me who wrote that blog entry. And I'm surprised that someone of Inter7 is respondig to this now. When I wrote to Inter7 and to this list some years ago. Noone of Inter7 was interested in that issue. They are _really_ ignorant to still distribute this image in an open source package maintained by them. As I had contact to the original author of this image (Eric Pearle) it is _clear_ that Inter7 has _no_ licence for this picture. Because this image is under exclusive licencing by getty. And getty does not licence this picture for redistribution. If you ask me: Inter7 is knowingly bringing users of qmailadmin in legal difficulties. And they are also ingorant about that. This is really hurting OS. Regards Dennis Körner --- Netzwerge Hamburg e.K.

It seems, that Getty works systematically; I have found one German case description: http://www.denniskoerner.de/blog/2010/04/19/arger-mit-getty-images-und-den-waldorf-anwalten-wegen-qmailadmin/ (english translation: http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=de&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.denniskoerner.de%2Fblog%2F2010%2F04%2F19%2Farger-mit-getty-images-und-den-waldorf-anwalten-wegen-qmailadmin%2F ).
