I haven't found the licensing data for the Forever by Shady S wallpaper, which would be very helpful as I am interested in uploading it to a Wiki, hence a CC-BY-SA license would be desirable.

You can find the liscence within the package. Or look up the package. See packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/wallpaper which links to changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/universe/w/wallpaper/… –  bodhi.zazen Sep 2 '14 at 17:51
