Yet Another Heptagon

June 21, 2008

I recently found a heptagon in a surprise place: Wikipedia. Not on the heptagon page: I was actually looking up copyright info for the blue triangle I used in this post, and I noticed that the copyright statement, explaining that the figure was a simple geometric figure and so couldn’t be copyrighted, actually had a picture of a heptagon on the right to illustrate (click for a more legible version):

Go Wikipedia!

It does occur to me that the copyright notice might actually be copyrighted. Recursion anyone?
