  In http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-webaudio-20131010/ section 16 it is
unclear that W3C has actually obtained the necessary rights to license
the used images under the "W3C Document License". That license includes
provisions that allow third parties to re-distribute the content, and if
the images are not covered under it, the current situation puts them in
legal jeopardy. I note, for instance, that the "GarageBand" image seems
to be also used on the referenced Wikipedia article, where it comes with
the clear warning "Any other uses of this image, on Wikipedia or
elsewhere, may be copyright infringement."

Needless to say that I think Apple, Inc. and others should find better
places than vendor-neutral Standard documents to advertise their goods.
