I dont' believe this is a logo, and if it is not a logo, that is out as a rationale for use here on WikiFur. -- Sine 06:53, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

The reason it's here is that it was discussed just a few minutes ago of using a template for LiveJournal comms and such, such is what is used in Dramatica.--Kendricks Redtail 06:59, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
If this is here for that reason, then every use of it is going to be in relation to a specific LiveJournal user. So even if it's not a logo strictly speaking it's going to always be used in relation to the originator of the icon, similar to a logo. If you feel the logo tag is not exact enough, I can use the {{fairuse}} tag and write my own rationale. --Rat 07:06, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

The copy on Wikimedia commons is listed as GPL, although I can't find the original statement. The original post by the head of livejournal seems to imply it's public-domain, but he may just be saying that it's not copyrighted by somebody other than livejournal (although my IANAL view is that probably a 16x16 image isn't "significant" copyright-speaking, but I have no idea on precedent either way in the US or otherwise). --Riismo 07:14, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
