Google Images Licensable Badge out of Beta

Announced as a beta back in Feb the Google Licensable Badge for Images that can be deployed using Structured Data or IPTC photo meta data is now out of beta and is live on the SERPs.

These are surfaced in a few different ways

  • For results where the publisher or image creator provided licensing information, they will display a “licensable” badge over the image. When you select a badged image to view, they will show a link to the license details of the image, and if provided by the publisher, you’ll also find a link to where you can purchase or license the image.
  • You can also filter results to only return those images that include licensing information. You can now select either images that have Creative Commons licenses, or those that have commercial or other licenses, in the Usage Rights dropdown menu on Google Images.

Sample Query: Try searching for sailboats stock images on Mobile or Desktop. I was able to trigger the label from Australia.
