I have an urgent and necessary question ! can i use an open source software"logo" icon (Public domain)  to create another logo not for another software for something like a movement  page and non profit  to serve an cause , so Can I modify it reshape, "note  the same logo but it has some  main additions to serve the new idea of the page! (The idea of the movement is based on it )

You need to very carefully read all the copyright fine print associated with image.
eg free to use and/or modify for commercial use
free for personal use only
must credit the original author and provide link to original image
etc etc
