This plugin extends the WordPress media manager to provide support for Creative Commons Licenses. Those licenses enable creators of works to provide simple means of communicating which rights they reserve.

License, rights holder, attribution URI and jurisdiction can be set globally, providing a default, and also individually for each media attachment. At display time, corresponding markup for inline image, video and audio content and, optionally, post thumbnail images is converted to a HTML5 figure, enriched with machine-readable RDFa metadata.

Included with the plugin are several stylesheets that modify the display of licensing details, including one that emulates the minimalist attribution style of the german blog Spreeblick.

The plugin includes a small web server that is able to serve the "Access-Control-Allow-Origin" header to allow embedding content on other web sites and the "X-Content-Duration" header for Ogg media. It can also serve HTTP 1.1 range-requests. For a detailed explanation why this is needed, see the corresponding page at the Mozilla developer wiki.
