Creative Commons Search Engine

Searching for new Creative Commons content is often like a treasurehunt: We either start from scratch and use a regular search engine or go directly to the websites where we know we can get our stuff. Finding nice new content requires following blogs, keeping up with your favourites on the big platforms and similar efforts. Of course big sites like archive.org offer quite a large choice of music from netlabels for example, but how about a special search engine just for Creative Commons stuff? Where you can choose between music, video, images and documents? Enter let's CC, the first search engine only offering content under the Creative Commons license. The results mostly come from typical sources like Jamendo, Flickr or Slideshare. This is still quite limited but more and more other sources are added so that this platform really has some potential.
