Google Images

Many people are under the false impression that any images that they find in Google images are in the public domain
The public domain is not a place. A work of authorship is in the “public domain” if it is no longer under copyright protection or if it failed to meet the requirements for copyright protection. Works in the public domain may be used freely without the permission of the former copyright owner.
Most images on the web and indexed by Google are protected by copyright

In the screen shot below,you will note the statement by Google that “Images may be subject to Copyright”

The gear wheel in the upper right gives you access to the advance search feature where you filter the results for use terms

Filtering this query for images that you are free to share or use returns no images!
