I think this is wrong.  I don't know who Joel Yoder is (the name
listed as "Author" on that wikimedia page) and I don't remember ever
discussing licensing that file under a Creative Commons license.  I
believe the logo was created by Denis Radenkovic of, with
copyright held by IM Freedom, and we've only chosen to license it as
"GPLv2 or later."
