" In the Font Awesome Free download, the CC BY 4.0 license applies to all icons packaged as .svg and .js files types.". How can such simple and general purpose icons hold copyright? Also the license asks for attribution "Font Awesome Pro 6.2.1 by u/fontawesome - https://fontawesome.com License - https://fontawesome.com/license (Commercial License) Copyright 2022 Fonticons, Inc.". Not sure where to put the attribution when I am using the icons on my website.
So the question is are those general purpose icon's svg code copyrighted? can I use them in a website without worrying about the license? If not, where do I put the attribution?
