In some cases, the author is lazy enough that he picks the first fitting image from the first results page, thus allowing bored readers to guess his search terms and find the original images easily. Laziness and ignorance can also get authors in much more serious trouble -- for some reason, people tend to think that anything found via GIS is fair game, when of course it's still all covered by copyright law. [[IThoughtItMeant No relation to]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_information_system Geographic Information Systems]], which aren't used by comic artists nearly as much.

* [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/bbc/9296664/BBC-mistake-computer-game-logo-for-United-Nations-Security-Council-symbol.html BBC News]] once used the logo of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s United Nations Space Command instead of that of the United Nations Security Council, probably because doing a Google Image Search for "UNSC" only returns results for the former.

* ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' consists of exactly four visual elements: A stubborn refusal to ever change the yellow background, white figures with RaymanianLimbs, imps, and pictures he took off Google images. One in particular that keeps cropping up is the Thomas Ruff portrait that, according to WordOfGod, he found by searching for "expressionless man".

* Happens during an event in ''VideoGame/PokemonHeartGoldAndSoulSilver'' where you have to take Arceus to a certain room and he proceeds to recreate the universe from scratch to give you an egg containing one of the cover legendaries for the other Gen 4 games. This process is illustrated starting with stock images of space and stars and how the Earth may have looked, up to single-celled organisms and finally civilizations by showing overhead satellite shots or skylines of big cities. As one [=YouTube=] commenter put it: "Arceus used Google Image Search!"

* ''CrazyBus'' features stock photos of buses for its backgrounds. They also look rather ugly, as they had to be compressed to be put on the Sega Genesis.
