Logo vs. computer icon[edit]

Cloudbound has recently replaced the computer icon of Xbox Video with its logo.

Unfortunately, the logo, apart from not being informative, was non-free. The computer icon is free and is on Commons. In such cases, Wikipedia explicitly bans the use of non-free content. But you might want to see a similar discussion in Xbox Music, where the logo and the computer icon are equally non-free. Fleet Command (talk) 23:53, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. The computer icon arguably is just as uninformative. Nevertheless, the icons serve their purpose in the articles well. Happy new year, Cloudbound (talk) 13:01, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I am not sure I agree with "The computer icon arguably is just as uninformative". Computer icons are the primary mean of visual identification of computer programs in Windows, especially since Windows 7. They are like a pictogram that have the same meaning as the name of the app.
