Hi,

Depends on the icon. There are some free ones that come with visual
studio. There are located here by default C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual
Studio .NET 2003\Common7\Graphics\icons

I am sure the visual studio icon is copyrighted. But icons that are used to
denote "Bring to Front", "Send to Back".. are they copyrighted?
