there is a way to filter google images to only show the ones that are ok to use.....
1. search for an image on google like you normally would.
2. click "options" and then click "advanced search" from the drop down menu.
3. on the advanced search page, scroll down to "usage rights".
4. click on "free to use, share or modify, even commercially".
this will sometimes whittle your choices down to bare bones compared to the unfiltered results. but at least you know you'll be safe from fines or legal issues.
