    Can someone tell me if the neat little rotating gears image on WHM is a copyrighted image? I REALLY like this graphic and would like to use it in a little image of my own for people hosting with me. I guess since I use WHM/CPanel, this would also be a notice to those people in the know about what software I am using for hosting as well.

    Thanks!

    Best bet would be to email CPanel about this one :)

    I did contact CPanel about it and was told it is a public domain image.

    I got it from a free clip art site about 6 years ago,

    and I've seen it all over the web, so I doubt it's copyrighted.
