WordPress has a great interface for managing media that you can then add to your posts. This should be extended to support CC licenses, either as a plugin or as a patch to the core software (only if necessary).

Required features would include:

  • Allow users to select a license for media as they upload it
  • Store license information
  • Update insertion code to include license notice and attribution information, if available

Bonus points for expanding the "Add from URL" feature to include support for adding media from the URL of an HTML page that contains the media and metadata. In this case the implementation should pull in the license and attribution information along with the media.
