IMPORTANT - Converting a Macintosh® icon to Windows® format does NOT change Copyright or Intellectual Property of an icon. The image/icon is property of its author and still property of this author after a conversion. As a result, do NOT redistribute converted icons without permission of the author. Also, some Macintosh® authors do not wish that you convert/use their icons under Windows®. In such a case, please respect author whish and do not convert its icons, even for your personal use.
