Uh-oh... the screenshot I uploaded to Wikimedia Commons was deleted due to copyright issues. The admin who deleted it said that there was "no valid free license" for the software: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/C..._quad-core.png

I made a request to restore the file, but the request was denied. It seems Wikimedia Commons is very strict about copyright because George saying "Go for it" apparently isn't explicit enough to be taken as permission: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/inde..._quad-core.png

George: apologies for bothering you again about this, but could you please explicitly confirm that users may publish Prime95 screenshots under any free license, including public domain?

Perhaps the best solution is to change the EULA to allow users to freely modify and distribute screenshots of GIMPS software, and use them for any purpose.
