Throw it up on the server, pick CC licensing, and call it a day..

I'm sure PLUG subscribers really enjoy getting 30+ emails arguing over the
licensing procedure for a simple modification to the tux logo, while a
bunch people wearing tinfoil hats endlessly speculate about highly
unlikely legal ramifications.
