Metadata Tune Up


Upgrading to one of our version 2.0 licenses or selecting one for the first time? Consider providing optional metadata about your work via the choose license process.

Specifying a format will help people find your work via format-specific searches (e.g., a picture of the Eiffel Tower).

If your work is derived from another, you might provide a URL for the source work. There aren’t yet any tools to take advantage of this metadata, though one can easily imagine using it to navigate a trail of works that build upon each other.

In the future we’ll probably add metadata support for location, tipjar, and other work, creator, and copyright holder information. Suggestions welcome on the cc-metadata mailing list.
