Zoom Users signed into the "new Vimeo" can access a special portal for Creative Commons videos
As part of its recent "new Vimeo" platform revamp, Vimeo has added support for browsing and searching for videos made available under a Creative Commons (CC) licence. The site has supported the CC license suite since July 2010, but the latest change should make it easier for users to find CC-licensed videos to "rework, remix and reimagine". Now, when searching for videos, users can select "Show Advanced Filters" and filter by CC license type, such as Attribution-ShareAlike or Attribution-NonCommercial.

The company also launched a CC Vimeo portal at Creative Commons Communications Manager Jane Park notes that, currently, users must be signed in to the new version of Vimeo to see the page; however, Park added that, following an initial testing period, the page will be made public so that users will not have to log in.

Further information about Creative Commons video on Vimeo can be found on the Vimeo FAQ page.
