The Google Licensable Badge is a visual indicator that displays on images within Google Image Search results when the image is available for licensing. The badge indicates that the image owner has authorized Google to display the image and that it can be licensed for commercial use through the image owner or a stock image company. The badge is intended to help users quickly identify images that can be used for commercial purposes.

The Google Licensable Badge can be useful for individuals and businesses looking to use images for commercial purposes. By quickly identifying images that are available for licensing, it saves time and effort in the search process and ensures that the image being used is legally obtained. Additionally, the badge helps image owners and stock image companies promote their content and potentially generate revenue through licensing. Overall, the Licensable Badge can be seen as a helpful tool for those in need of licensed images.
