Copyright on Rage Faces

I have a Webcomic site and I want to include rage faces. Does anybody know the copyright status on rage faces.

I think if you make the rage face as a twisted version of your characters face, it would be allowable for you to do. I also think they would be covered under "fair use."

In any case, since they are well known, but no action is being taken, the statute of limitation has expired on the first ones used.

If you want to play it safe, you can make two version of the comic; one with rage faces, and one without.

Personally I hate the rage faces. They look ugly and are unoriginal. I think they strongly suggest the artist in unable to draw strong emotions.
