I haven't thought much about integrating search, but an OpenOffice.org
implementation of what the Microsoft Office Addin
(http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Microsoft_Office_Addin) does would be
killer.  Some additional thoughts on how it might work are available
at http://wiki.creativecommons.org/OpenOfficeOrg_Addin.

That could be interesting; are you thinking about searching the user's
hard drive for CC licensed content or providing a web search interface
for searching CC licensed content?  In the former case, have you
thought much about how to handle the different file formats?

Thanks for your interest; looking forward to your application,
