[emphasis added] If that is in fact what was done, it obviously doesn't. However, what is actually copyrighted is a specific representation of a person in a wheelchair, and the creation of derivative works thereof. It's not clear that all minimalistic representations of a person in a wheelchair would be derivative works of the ISA.
But a depiction with the same lines in the same place would be unfree, right? You'd have to basically start from scratch and draw a new wheelchair symbol to make it free?
