Are all of your images from openclipart? Are they all public domain? Maybe 
you can list on your webpage that these are all public domain.

Your website is very useful for me and I quickly found some images I am 
going to reuse. Thank you!

(I am able to read the SVG source to see that they are public domain with 
the tag:
<cc:License rdf:about="http://web.resource.org/cc/PublicDomain">

A suggestion for your site: Please list the tags/keywords for each image 
too (with each image). That way if I search for "computer hardware" and

images. Also get rid of the "Start" and "End" buttons when the search has 
no results (like this bogus link I found 

Thanks again for your useful website. I was thinking about this this
