CcSearch at (also accessible via Firefox) simply "frames" CC-enabled search engines.

To accomplish this, candidate search engines need to support the following query components in GET URLs:

  • keyword
  • restriction to only CC-licensed or PD results
    • restriction to only results that permit commercial use
    • restriction to only results that permit derivative works

Typically, these will map to four URLs, each with an arbitary keyword parameter.

Example implementations

Yahoo! Web Search

Google Web Search Video Search

Flickr Image Search

Owl Multimedia Audio Search

  • Any CC
  • Permits commercial use
  • Permits derivative works
  • Permits commercial and derivative use
