Integration of Creative Commons API

Postby skbohra » Tue Apr 01, 2008 4:36 pm

I propose integration of creativecommons.org API into Joomla! The Extension will enable users to select and assign creative commons license to their content. It will use the API available by creativecommons.org (api.creativecommons.org) for this purpose. Creative commons is a non profit organization which provides, licensing to any content, such as video, text, images, websites or blogs (creativecommons.org) and is very popular.
Creative commons is on many social networks (http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Main_Page)
Virb, facebook, upcoming, myspace, flickr, revyer, [youtube], blip.tv, dotSUB, Scribd, mahalo
Providing an extension for creative commons license, I think is desperately needed (as I didn’t find, correct me if I am wrong), and I would like to do this in my Gsoc project.

Before working on this proposal, I want some review from community, please provide feedback.

This is great news. I have been looking for a way to use/add a creative commons license for my organization's content. We are a network of higher education institutions mainly in Europe, but have now expanded our network to include members from North America, South America, Africa and Asia. We are developing an educational website and would like to use a creative commons license for all our content.

Are you planning on an implementation similar to the one being proposed for Drupal at http://drupal.org/project/creativecommons

You have my vote and our international network of HE institutional members (hoping to reach 200 soon).

Peter
