Don't worry :) I didn't explain this correctly, my bad.

(See the template {{icon}} in the Licesing section)

This is an icon of copyrighted computer software. It is believed that the 
exhibition of icons
to illustrate or identify the computer software in question
on the English-language Wikipedia, hosted on servers in the United States by 
the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation,
qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other uses of 
this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement. See 
Wikipedia:Fair use and Copyrights.
To the uploader: please add a detailed fair use rationale for each use, as 
described on Wikipedia:Image description page, as well as the source of the 
work and copyright information."

"qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law" Wikipedia Commoms 
don't allow "fair use", and I don't know why.

Wikipedia Commoms store all files uploaded from the Wikipedia in Portuguese 
(and in other languages but English, I guess).
I'm updating the page to match with its English version. Some consistency 
between different languages is always good, furthermore, the old version was 
totally messed up.


And while we are here, I call all <strike>translators</strike> localizators to 
do the same (update the Scribus entry in Wikipedia).

Thank you.
