A Creative Commons Add-in for would allow license information to be embedded in Writer, Impress and Calc documents.


  • Use the Creative Commons web services to display a licensing dialog and generate licensing information
    • available for Python
    • available for Java
    • can be encapsulated as an uno service if needed
  • Store license URI, properties and/or RDF in the document file
    • OOo user defined metadata can be used (matada renamed and string stored)
  • Insert license declaration text
    • What about languages ?
    • Possibly in a hidden section ?

Desirable Features

  • Make license text available as Auto Text. Just like a page number or "Author" auto text, this could be inserted in the footer of a document. If the license for the document was updated, the text would be updated as well.
    • translation ?


  • Would a straight up core addition to be more desirable than a plug-in? Jon Phillips 18:08, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
    • I do not think so. Uno Framework and Extensions project is designed for such uses Laurent Godard
