    Is it allowed to use an icon from the WordPress icon set as icon for a commercial plugin? The icon will be shown in the menu when you install the plugin. Also near the titles on the pages of the plugin.

    Thanks Andrew, but that's the logo. I mean an icon from the icon set of WordPress. Like the 'comments' balloon or the 'home' icon of the dashboard.

  4. The new ones (Dashicons) appear to be copyright WordPress - http://melchoyce.github.io/dashicons/ - so ... I would think no.

    http://genericons.com/ and http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/ are good to use though.

    We're not using the icons outside of WordPress. We will not use the icons on our website or any other material.

    We will use the 'calendar' icon just for our plugin in WordPress itself. I see some other plugins use the default 'wheel' as icon, so I assume using the calendar icon shouldn't be a problem?
