Logos and buttons
The official logo of the Definition of Free Cultural Works was designed by Marc Falzon, and placed in the public domain:
An SVG copy can be found here
The logo represents both the diversity of human culture, and the openness and freedom to interact with free cultural works.
Please feel free to create derivatives of this logo, and upload them to this wiki.
These buttons are in the public domain. Which color you use is your choice; we suggest red for music, black for science and software, and yellow for everything else.
This is the cleanest set so far and it comes with a template.

Unlike the CC icons, these do not map to particular detailed license modules, but rather indicate general classes of licenses.
So far, these are the only ones I could think of needing for free licenses, but I am interested in hearing suggestions for what additional requirements we ought to have icons for:

I recommend these icons for use where free and non-free licenses will be compared with each other:
License description pages
For each license, we will try to create a description page. Here are some examples:
