I assume you mean icons from "Stardock Design" (SD)?

You can:

1. email SD and ask permission.

2. Just modify them and use for yourself: not publishing nor sharing them.

3. Ask a Moderator to take a look at them and see what they think.

The polite thing to do would be to email Stardock Design (keep a copy of the email) and offer to send them what you're doing and ask permission to publish (if that's your intent).

Oh yeah...wait for the answer. They're good people, but busy and it might take a little time for the answer.

Thanx superman, i'll check it out.. thought about it but it's a big project anyway... I may try one day if i feel brave enough .. In this case i just made a modification to suit my "needs" . It's not a big deal anyway but i think it may be usefull to share it.

I've just looked inside the Icons folder and found that a permission is already included and it looks like it's ok to modify and share it. I've already uploaded it trying to confirm with the instructions i fund in the text file. I should have looked before ... somehow i didn't see it. Sorry if i bothered you guys for nothing, hope at lest we cleared another subject Anyway thanx very much!
