If you’re looking for a way to easily tag your site’s media with a Creative Commons license, then the Creative Commons Media Tagger plugin will allow you to set up your licensing and automatically apply it to all you media – even media that’s already on your site. In addition, you can override any preset license on an individual piece of media.
Setting Up the Plugin
After uploading and activating the plugin, you will find your settings automatically added to the bottom of your Media Settings page (Settings > Media).

Getting your settings the way you want them will take care of all your media going forward, but in order to tag your media that’s already on your site, you simply need to run batch tag function. (Tools > cc-tagger batch index)
While the plugin will automatically add the license to you media, you do still have the opportunity to make individual pieces of media take on a different license. You can do this through the Media Uploader. You can also do it through the Media Library.

What Your Tags Look Like
Once you have your tag settings the way you want them, the plugin will automatically add the appropriate Creative Commons license to the attachment page for the media.
One more function that this plugin offers if you like is the ability to search your media by the Creative Commons license.
