Same feelings too, this was just while waiting for next icon version

Very good question.
In fact the photos used to create the pen came from a site that does
not explicitly prohibit their modification.
But the official Montblanc site is extremely restrictive on the
subject and does not authorise any modification of a photo.
It appears that the photos I used (or very similar ones) are also on
Montblanc web site such that there is indeed a potential copyright
Moreover, the pen is still recognizable despite the numerous
modifications I made, my conclusion is:
let us forget about the pen.
