There may be a fine point here. I'm no attorney, and I haven't been a
paying member of ADC in many years so I don't know the fine print, but
as someone who's had an Apple exec brag to him that the company has more
lawyers than engineers, I have to wonder:
Are developers allowed to physically copy the icon image, or is it
merely allowable to render the icon my making the API call provided?
