@xuv Ridiculous! Of course, I am weirdly fond of the US Postal Service and my sense of patriotism is extended to them. It's an unfortunate mistake but it shouldn't cost them $3.5m! Had that been my design, I would have gladly settled for $5k. Of course, had that been my design, it would have been permissively licensed from the get go, lol.

@ajdunevent Yes, I find that whole copyright claim to be dubious. Especially the rabbit hole chain of supposed author's rights from a Getty photo to a rather poor decorative copy of a public domain monument donated by the French.
