I just learned from the Amarok 1.2.1 changelog that this icon has been replaced due to legal issues.

Can someone please enlighten me? What is the problem?

I just stumbled across the same thing, but after doing some searching, I think the icon looks too similar to a logo from Warp Graphics, Inc. as found on the top of http://www.elfquest.com/ .

The howling wolf thing like that is pretty common.

Is it ok if I put publish this wallpaper here in kde-look in the wallpapers section? Do you think I should do it?

really better now! Thanks! :)
Though the svg is ok now, the icon rendering of kde has still got some problems, at least on my computer, with the internal blue gradient...i see it gray, unless I open it with the ksvg plugin. Check it out! And thank you again for your great work! :)

Congratulations.
What i don't get is why did you change the icon the same day you won the contest.
I do think the old icon was much better than this new one.
Anyway, which icon won, the old or the new ?

I would agree, the original icon made much more sence.

I think he tweaked the original in Gimp\PhotoChop and cant replicate that look in SVG for final. Hence, the cheaper look.

ahm the icon you are talking of has nothing to do with this version.
This is Blue Wolf the link points to Dark Wolf. These are 2 diffrent submissions.

But its true that i updated the 0.9 version of "Blue Wolf" to an in my eyes more suitable version.Many factors influenced the changes like the centered moon and the amarok team gave me most of the suggestions for the changes in this new version.

Now things should be clearer.

They are different submitions but they are very similar. They even have the same elements and the positioning of the moon is the one you previously used in this icon.
IMHO he has a point.

I was looking at http://www.adler-solutions.de/amarok_icon_contest/ I again remembered how I did like the original icon more. I don't see the point of the centering the moon.

I completely agree with you. I didn't even know the whole thing wasn't an svg at first.
IMHO there are some problems with the nose of the wolf and the way the moon is now.
There are some guys here at work which were also following the contest and they reffer the same thing.
