What do you mean by sell?

If you have made a cursor yourself and therefore own the rights to it, you can sell author rights (sell = allow someone to use it in a particular way and getting monetary compensation).

If you have used images made by someone else while making the cursor, you are not the only author and you must respect the rights of the people, who made the images. In that case, selling the rights may be problematic - you must make sure you are acting in accordance with the licenses attached to the used images.

Regarding this web site. Posting your work in the library does not limit your author rights (you just agreed to have the cursors present in the library). You still own the rights and you can do what you wish with them.

It is not illegal to make cursors from images belonging to someone else, but what you can do with them is limited by the license of those images. If you download a picture from internet, you should look at its license and that tells you what you can do with it. (This is why there are licenses attached to cursors and icons in this library - to tell those who download them what rights the author gives to them.) If there is no license, you must assume the worst. That means you can make the cursor for your personal use, but you should not even distribute it.

Drawing a you own smiley picture is fine.
