Creative Commons license filtering in search?

Is it possible for DuckDuckGo to allow filtering by license permissions of search results? Google and other search engines make it easy to do license-specific searches, and it would be good to have that option for image searches through DuckDuckGo. Thanks!

(Please move it to the idea section of the forum because it is actionable.) I suppose this idea. I suggest flexible license filtering, not only 1 license, and divide licenses into "free" and "non-free" categories. The crawler needs to look for LINK or A elements which have rel attribute set to "license" or "copyright".
