Oh! I should have explained that a bit more. So, if someone does artwork 
from scratch / with all their own materials or appropriately-licensed 
source images, it legally (I wouldn't like it though) would be okay for 
it to be licensed ND and be a Fedora wallpaper.

However, ND == no derivatives. Samuele's wallpaper is a derivate of the 
images he is using. ND is a non-starter for any artwork that is != the 
source image.
