    Hey there, I don't want to accuse you without knowing full information, but it looks like these icons were swiped by artist Yusuke Kamiyamane (http://p.yusukekamiyamane.com/)

    They are free but he states that you must provide credit attribution to him unless you purchase a royalty free license. The only way this plugin would not be stealing from his work is if you had an agreement with him that allowed you to release his icons to thousands of WP users with no mention of him or money paid to him.

    He spent a lot of time on these I'm sure and I'd hate to see his work go unrecognized and uncompensated.

    'Swiped'? That's hardly the word I would use and the fact that you're accusing me of stealing is offensive. You're saying you want me to purchase a license to distribute the icons for free? This plugin was built for the greater good of the WordPress community and distributed entirely for free. I have not stated that these icons are designed by myself at all. I do regret that I haven't provided proper attribution to the icon designer and will update my plugin to display his credits.
