What's New

  • DublinCoreExtensions addon is now incorporated into the Content Licensing Product. It is no longer necessary to install it separately.
  • Support for Creative Commons style RDF embedded in RSS feeds. Can use this feed in place of the standard default RSS feed shipped with Plone.
  • Added a jurisdiction setting, making it possible to choose a correct Creative Commons license based on your geographical location.
  • ContentLicensing is supported with the latest Zope and Plone (Zope-2.9.5/Plone-2.5.1).


This product no longer relies on the DublinCoreExtensions Addon. Simply unpack the product in your products directory, restart Zope, and use the quick installer via the "Site Settings/Add/Remove Products" link to install it.
