"Found on the Internet" could be those bastards at Getty Images, who 
would get a lot of free publicity for their extortion letters from a well 
publicized even though failed demand letter against Canonical.

Don't use unknown source images unless everyone involved is OK with
standing up to extortionists. Getty doesn't sue, they just send extortion
letters. One of my websites warns them of $10,000 liquidated damages
for every access to it in TOS that forbid their "picscout" bot from scraping
it, thus putting their demand letters in reverse gear.
