This problem has been resolved by discussion with the copyright owner of the image files in question. The website that the images were originally distributed from [1] now has a license statement for the windows screensaver that the images are part of

I believe that this solves the problem, and that kaquarium and shermans-aquarium can now be packaged in a DFSG way, given suitable alterations to the copyright statements in those packages.

I'll get kaquarium fixed soon and ask my sponsor to upload it hopefully this weekend...
