Exactly :-) Honesty - I don't see anything creative in puting other
person picture on top of the file and just shift and add some
shadow... But anyway - WLM logo is under CC-BY-SA 3.0 - so using this
logic we violate also copyright of this:


and in fact even harder :-) It is not credited on our banner but also
on pencils, buttons, T-shirts etc... I guess some direct agreement
from Lusitan is needed to be signed with WLM organisers...
