Thank you for your patience.
Here is the answer I got from out legal department:
Icons displayed in the examples may not be used/reused at all by our Licensees.
Icons and other resources provided in the core product may not be used outside of the Telerik components.
Is the customer allowed to
• Use an icon from some Telerik control in another Telerik control? – Yes provided the customer has obtained licenses to both Telerik products.
• Use an icon from some Telerik control in another third party control? - No
• Use an icon from some Telerik control in a site that does not use any Telerik controls? – No
In addition, our icons are not distributed as stand alone product. Some of them are Visual Studio 2010 icons, which you can find here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\VS2010ImageLibrary\1033\VS2010ImageLibrary.zip. The rest are our icons for which the aforementioned legal statement applies.
I hope that the provided information addresses your question. Let me know if you need additional information regarding this matter.
