From images.google.com, users can search for "silhouette clip art" or "free silhouette clip art." On the results page, users can select search tools, which is located below the search box, and then click on "usage rights." As of 2015, web users are presented with four different filtering options: labeled for reuse, labeled for reuse with modifications, labeled for non-commercial reuse and labeled for non-commercial reuse with modifications.

The option "Labeled for reuse with modifications" provides the broadest usage rights, because it allows for commercial reuse, sharing and user modifications. This filter provides the fewest results, as many artists require payment for their work when it is used for business or commercial purposes. For a user who plans to use the clip art for personal use, "labeled for non-commercial reuse" is a sufficient filter. If the user plans to modify and publish the work for personal use, he should select "labeled for non-commercial reuse with modifications." If the user's intended purpose for the clip art falls under fair use, as determined by United States copyright law, a filtered search is unnecessary.
