The DMCA allows for written notice to be given to you and will give you 24 hours to remove the infringed photos or your site can be shut down.

Again, i'm happy to let you use them but ANY photo, even in the public domain, is protected by copyright laws which are designed to protect the work from this exact scenario.
Very sorry, should have asked for sure.
