How to apply a CC licence on a publishing platform (YouTube/Flickr/WordPress)
A number of familiar platforms have already enabled ways for you add and display Creative Commons (CC) licences to your work.
When you apply a CC licence using the platform widgets, or by selecting a licence from the Creative Commons License Chooser, HTML is applied (or provided to place in your page). That HTML contains metadata which allows software to understand that you’ve applied a license to your work. If this is properly attached, search engines like Google and Yahoo! will index your work as CC licensed.
