Well, I daresay there can be a clear stock of logo's that are not
corporate logo's. I'm thinking of a danger sign, all common signs for
wheelchair users, explosive, traffic signs, landmark signs, sign
language, etc...

I seriously doubt these are copyrighted.

Maybe a (sub)folder "symbols and public logo's" could be a good idea?
