Kentucky ©opyright violation

While examining the website of the official auditor of Kentucky, I noticed some dubious repurposing of icons from Apple. Case in point, the “SAFE-house” link on the righthand column:

KY-copyright

Some of you may notice it looks suspiciously like the “FileVault” icon from the feature of that name.

To be honest, the name of the program, which is officially for “Secure, Anonymous, and File-Encrypted” (a forced acronym if there every was one), makes me think they decided to name the program after the icon.

To make sure no one gets the wrong idea, I have nothing against the Kentucky Auditor, as I will detail later, only this particular choice of icon.
