I was pretty neutral on this one before, but all I can see at
http://www.copyleft.net are examples which convince me that the copyleft symbol
is a logo - and a commercial one at that. If we go down that road next someone
will suggest the MS WindowsT logo, the Linux penguin and a top hat. How about
the Visa and MasterCard logos? - there are thousands of examples of these
printed in newspaper ads.
