The background we have clearly looks as a derivative work of the one
above: flip the said blue original (licensed under CC-By-NC-ND) upside
down and left to right, make a transparent layer of it, and rotate it
180° with some gradient and here you have something very close if not
identical. Please double check and confirm, but this looks like it to
me. If it is, it sucks big time for everyone. :-/

We're going to contact both Luiz and the above author and see from there.
