the animated plus/minus icon
So I've seen this animated gif icon on many, many websites. It seems to always be related to comments or feedback. My questions are:
1. What is the common name for it?
2. Who created it?

I would like to use this image on my own website, but I need to figure out if I can get permission to do so.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about a website you control. –  John Conde Oct 7 '13 at 15:11
    
Editing the question to include something like "I would like to use this image on my own website, but I need to figure out if I can get permission to do so" would satisfy the on-topic requirements for this site. –  Stephen Ostermiller Oct 7 '13 at 16:27
    
I love that the attention on this question is its format, not its answer. Thanks for the help though @StephenOstermiller. –  user1088726 Oct 7 '13 at 16:48
    
Your best bet would be to attempt to replicate it with your own design. –  bybe Oct 7 '13 at 17:36

To answer #2 - I believe it was originally created by OpionLab, which is an enterprise-class feedback management service. You'd have to subscribe to their service to get permission to use it.
