Hi Richard and everyone else,
Looking at the Dev tools inerface, I must conclude it is the latter:
use of the images, but without a right to copy them physicall to other
development environments. When I create a simple project with the
standalone magnifying glass picture from the Media library and save or
build that project, I don't see the picture included. It might be
there, but it is not readily available.
I haven't seen any explicit statement, saying that copying to a
different development environment is allowed. It is very easy to
reproduce these pictures in your own icon editor, though. I can hardly
imagine that Apple sees a problem in that.
