Hi Eli,

The Fugue icons appear to use a Creative Commons attribution license:

This is very similar to the Creative Commons license we use for  
Fluid's non-code products. In short, we have to explicitly make note  
of the fact that Pinvoke is the author of these icons. This is pretty  
consistent with other open source licenses we use. We include a list  
of attributions in our wiki and in the Infusion download's README file.

Did you find any other specific requirements in regards to attribution  
that I missed?
