I have little experience with graphic art work, and how licenses apply, but
I asked a friend who do graphic work for companies.

He told me there exist 3 simple rules:
1) if the file contain a copyright text (typically in the metadata), you
cannot distribute it without permission
2) if the file is blank and it is non-branded "simple" artwork (like in
your case), it can be freely distributed (open license)
3) branded artwork (like logos), need explicit permission to distribute

 However there might be people on this list, who have better input.
