Yahoo! Joins Mozilla’s Firefox in Offering Search Engine for Creative Commons Licensed Content

| March 24, 2005
Yahoo! has added the ability to search specifically for content licensed under a Creative Commons license. The new search function gives surfers the ability to scour the web for content offered to the public under various Creative Commons licenses. Mozilla's Firefox browser has for some time now offered a Creative Commons search toolbar alongside such leading search services as Google, Yahoo!, Amazon, eBay, and The Creative Commons itself has for some time now offered its own search tool for CC licensed content. CC licenses make content usable. These search tools make that same content findable.
