G'day, Phil.
What this means is that if you upload your images to your personal web site, or to one of the print sites or anywhere but Farcebook or Twitface, then when Google does an image search it will come back with whatever images it can scan. As long as you upload with your metadata intact then that data is shown. Your metadata includes your copyright information if you have that included in your camera settings. Google searches are worldwide. I did a Google image search with my own personal name and it returned images which I have offered for sale on many various sites as well as images from my personal web page.

As of right now, the metadata was not shown, but with full implementation when it happens, that should be overlaid. Or so they say....................

Google is doing a preemptive attempt at not being sued by photographers because of their incessant data mining and returning copyrighted images along with those which are public domain.
