Creative Commons has worked long and hard to offer a "flexible copyright for creative work". Today Yahoo! announced Creative Commons Search.

This is certainly a boon to the cause of Lawrence Lessig, chairman of the board of directors of Creative Commons and a law professor at Stanford Law School. And it begins to dispel a few myths on both sides of the table. On the webmaster's side there has been a myth that just because content can be seen all over many websites that it is in the public domain and there has been an erroneous assumption by some that content is always being used without consent.

Indeed there are some copyright holders that are pleased to share their photos, text, videos with the Internet and the Creative Commons offers a centralized depository. Check it out.

note: larwee you beat me to the punchline!
