No bad feelings :)

You did not abandon your rights, the FPCA does not do that.
I've spoken to Ryan Lerch (the designer who made the DVD cover and the
Flock badges), and he is very apologetic. The lack of attribution is an
oversight, not an intentional attempt to leave out your attribution.
Please let me know if there is anything we can do for those issues, and
we will be more vigilant in the future. It is perhaps noteworthy that we
used several other Creative Commons licensed works at Flock, including
the picture of the Carolina Wren used on the tshirt (and for which, we
gave attribution in the Flock conference booklet that all attendees
I've CC'd Ruth Suehle to add attribution to the Fedora Magazine use case.
Again, I'm very sorry that this occurred, and we will do our best to
prevent such mistakes from happening in the future.
