A faq thread has been started on the Google Search Console forums:
We are introducing a new metadata framework that, when applied to images by content owners, will display a “Licensable” badge on image thumbnails in Google Images and make it easier for people to understand the nature of the images they’re looking at and how they can use them. To get started, refer to the Google developer page and FAQs listed below where you can also submit feedback or additional questions if you need help to troubleshoot issues along the way.
