This is just a draft made of ideas to integrate Creative Commons licenses into the Gnome Desktop. A software repository has been created to host all patches and plugins still not accepted in the different projects. If you have any patch or piece of code which it's useful to the integration, send it to me ( and I'll upload it to the repository (only GPL code accepted).

Applications aware of CC licenses

Applications which could easily become aware of CC licenses

Things to be done to improve integration into the Gnome desktop

  • Send bug reports to applications which could easily become aware of CC licenses. This could be done using Bugzilla.
  • Send patches to existing Gnome applications to add CC licenses interaction using Bugzilla.
  • If Freedesktop's Metadata Spec is modified to include a "license" field in first class objects specification, Tracker could be used to look for CC licensed files within the desktop. This could be done using Deskbar-applet as front-end.
  • Please add more suggestions here :)


  • Please add your implementation here :)
