Sorry! Due to unclear license conditions of the used icons in my icon sets, I am forced
to remove these icon sets from this page. :(

The used icons in my sets are all licensed under GPL but that's not right!
For example, in the used hydroxygen icons are included icons (from KDE oxygen icons), which are under LGPL.
Some other people have changed the licence to other incompatible licenses.

The following iconsets are no longer available:

LaGaDesk-BlueNight
LaGaDesk-TechoLike
LaGaDesk-BlackWhite-III
LaGaDesk-remix-II

I didn't get the point (probably my not complete comprehension of english prevented me to do this :( ).

The prob is that I used icons from other icon sets with wrong licenses. For example Hydroxygen icon set is licensed under the GPL but it includes icons (from oxygen KDE icons), which were licensed under LGPL.

In my opinion, problem is that designers actually don't care so much about licensing and stuff related to it. It's a bad habit (and I'm guilty too since I put myself in this group) but most of time (at least for me) one is so much excited about releasing new stuff that actually doesn't care about how is going to release it :)

I think we all should respect the licenses of others!

Yes you're surely right. But what I tried to point out before is that probably designers themselves don't care so much about this aspect :)

yes, I know my friend! But... if they care about you can read this:

"This icon set has a license problem, please fix it. The original icon set this icon set "steals" its icons is "oxygen" an LGPL icon set, GPL is a more restrictive licence so you can not use it.
Secondly you seam to imply that you did this icons, were it is not true, this icons were mostly made by Nuno Pinheiro, David Vignoni, and Everado Coelho (crystal), yeat you seam to take credit for our work....plase make it clear that this is derevative work from other people and fix the licensing issue... BTW I'm not sure all of the icon set's you used here are compatible licensing wise, please verify that.

Cheers Nuno Pinheiro, Oxygen theme coordinator."

Ok, so you have fully made the point, and you're completely right.
Probably someone actually cares about it, even though this could not be applied to all developers. And probably (I'm telling this not to being in contrast with you but since I'm guessing that in this case is true) the unexpected care given by Nuno Pinheiro is related to the fact that he (and his colleagues) is the designer of a very famous and important iconset (so well designed to be the default one in KDE environment), and he as to manage this kind of stuff to somehow avoid the leakage of icons and the weaken of the copyright on it.

I should have examined all the icons and replaced individually. The expense would be too large. For this I have no time. I am glad that you understand my point. :)

Sorry, but it is not possible to send it in an email because it's too big!
Otherwise I'm not willing to share this icons further due of the license problems.
I'm really very sorry! :(

I mean we need to have xGPL licensing to protect opensource. I can figure out it can be a bit disappointing in some case, though ;)

xGPL? Hm... that's the problem. There is a GPL (v2 v3), LGPL, MPL, BSD, Apache, etc. There are too many incomplete licenses. But my prob is, that others used the wrong license and so I used also wrong license. :(

Ach Peter, ich ärgere mich gar nicht sooo sehr darüber, dass ich die Themes nun entfernt habe. Aber um so mehr darüber, dass es Leute gibt, welche die von mir benutzten Icons unter eine falsche Lizenz gestellt haben und auch über die, welche die Lizenz der Icons ändern und einen dann ans Bein pinkeln. :/ Aber wie Du schon sagst, so ist das eben.
