I am not linked with Clker, but I think they are within their rights to copy
the artwork, since all the OCAL artwork is dedicated to the Public Domain.
Actually, OCAL were recently bragging that lots of their clipart had been
included in a commercial package.

Yes, I think something similar to both of these would work well. I am
disappointed that OCAL doesn't even allow Google images in very well. And it
doesn't allow a search plugin to be made easily for either Firefox 2 or IE7
- the exception here is if you use the Firefox plugin "
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3682 Add To Search Bar ",
which is excellent.

Yes, that's sad, but also part and parcel of Public Domain AFAIK.
