Re: Does logo under CC BY SA makes entire project SA
Simon pointed out the key question: if it is a derivative work or just
an aggregation of two works (code + logo, or logo + text). I don't think
it would be considered a derivative but IANAL.
Also note that even if the executable was a derivative work of the logo
(and thus subject to the CC-BY-SA), the source code is not. You could
remove/replace the logo and use the result following just the MIT
license. Independently of being loaded at runtime or hardcoded.
It's even more clear for the documentation. Suppose you have a pdf with
the logo on the first page, and CC-BY text in the rest. I could strip
the first page and release the result under CC-BY, even if the full pdf
could only be used under CC-BY-SA (which may or may not be the case).
IANAL, for legal issues consult with a lawyer, etc.
