I know we all love our "Ray" but some of these are pretty damn good too

Are the wallpapers on opendesktop.org "licence free" ?

I can see nothing that identifies the copyright holder, so they're out of bounds to Peppermint in any official capacity .. user are free to make their own minds up though :)

There's a copyright disclaimer at the bottom of the page, so yes there's copyrighted content on there.

That disclaimer doesn't **necessarily** apply to the wallpapers, but that doesn't change the fact that there's no way to identify who the copyright holder is .. so we can't get permission to use them :(

Ray on the other hand gave us permission :)

Yeah, a blanket copyright disclaimer doesn't make life any easier.  I don't know who Ray is, but good on him.

Ah, thanks.  I knew that name at some point, but then I forgot it.
