Integrated Licensing in

Over the summer Creative Commons had the good fortune to participate in the Google Summer of Code. One of our students, Cassio Melo, worked on developing an add-in for, similar to the one that existed for Microsoft Office.

Today I’m pleased to announce the fruits of Cassio’s efforts. We’re releasing a beta release of the add-in which allows you to select and embed a license in Writer, Calc and Impress documents (press release). You can find download information as well as a screencast of the add-in in action on the wiki.

Thanks to Cassio for his hard work, as well as Google for supporting open source development.
