Really, we need a license that allows us to redistribute to others
with the same rights we have to use, modify and redistribute.  In
other words, an artist can't just give us permission to use the art
ourselves.  The easiest way to do that is for the artist to agree to
license it to us with a Creative Commons license,
Attribution-ShareAlike being the preferred one I believe.
