yolink integrates Creative Commons for attributed finding

The power of yolink’s next-generation search technology is now combined with Creative Commons (“CC”) ‘copyleft’ copyright protection to promote the proper attribution of creative work when saving, sharing and creating content. Since 2001, Creative Commons’ goal has been to “increase the amount of creativity (cultural, educational, and scientific content) in ‘the commons’ — the body of work that is available to the public for free and legal sharing, use, re-purposing, and remixing” ( CC offers a standardized method for people to share and build upon the work of others, by making it easy to grant copyright permission terms that range from “no rights reserved” to the restrictive “all rights reserved.”

The latest yolink update integrates CC’s licensing support. Now, when a yolink result contains CC licensed content and is saved to Google Docs, the license will be retained and displayed in the document. This newest update ensures that creative work is easily accessible and properly attributed.

Check out the Creative Commons Weblog for more information.
