Recent and upcoming operating systems will have built-in support for application-level metadata. See [http://developer.gnome.org/arch/file/metadata.html Gnome], [http://msdn.microsoft.com/longhorn/understanding/pillars/winfs/default.aspx?pull=/msdnmag/issues/04/01/WinFS/default.aspx Vista], and [http://www.apple.com/macosx/tiger/searchtechnology.html Tiger]. How can Creative Commons take advantage of these technologies to enable CC-aware search and applications on the next generation desktop? Wanted: research briefs on how to expose CC license info for objects in each major OS or framework.  Support for the external metadata files should be included.

One really strong approach would be to add support for CC licensing and metadata through various [http://fuse.sourceforge.net/ FUSE-based filesystems] (which are in user space). FUSE is used to make the ever-cool gmailfs. By taking this approach one could make quick services to archive.org, flickr, etc.
