Just like googling (or searching with any other engine)
for an image shows you a number of images, so Google
Copyright will show a single image with its source clearly
noted, as the result of a search. That way we
wikipedia (for example) have the permission to show
images, which are currently one click away (in the search
tab of your browser) but on the page
show as an empty sillhouette.
Random example: (I searched for a famous name and
then went through namesakes till I found this) Marvin
Herzog (see link)
At worst, it could have a watermark on the image,
giving copyright info.
Spellcheck for sillhouette

to be able to Google my images without at least
going to my page.

||Nope not a rant. I meant Copyright.
||Its a way to allow websites on the web to show an
image on another site, without infringing on the
other site's rights or the image owner's rights. If
you can see the image in google search, without
paying money to "buy the book", why not see it
anywhere else, without specifically pressing the
