Google One-Ups Bing With Creative Commons Image Search (GOOG, MSFT)

Google launched a Creative Commons search feature on its image search service, the company said in a blog post today.

Specifically, Google added a “Usage Rights” filter to its advanced image search feature. Search results can be filtered by “labeled for reuse,” “commercial” reuse,” “reuse with modification,” and “commercial reuse with modification.”

Until now, bloggers used Flickr and other image sites to find content they could re-post under Creative Commons licenses. Google’s new feature, in theory, adds much more inventory.
