I'm aware how to use creative commons logo. But I'm searching for a character that I can insert in a caption to notice that the image (in my case) is under creative commons and not under ©, so it should be like a double "c" or something like that. So is there a creative commons analogous symbol of "©" that I can insert like a character?

You are probably searching for \copyright. – Thorsten Donig Nov 2 '13 at 9:01
@ThorstenDonig I'm trying to do something like a "CC" symbol analogous to © but C is for copyright I want a symbol for a creative commons image in my case... – G M Nov 2 '13 at 9:06

The ccicons package seems to be what you are looking for. (I've never used it myself though.) With the command ccLogo you will get one of these:

ccicons icon

There is also a cclicenses package, but the icons are not as clear nor as up-to-date.

Welcome! Can you expand your answer a little bit more? Maybe a small example with an image is useful. – Marco Daniel Nov 2 '13 at 9:19
Sure thing, just added images in now. – SnoringFrog Nov 2 '13 at 9:25
Tested works!Thanks, congratulations great start! – G M Nov 2 '13 at 9:35
another possibility is to google for "creative commons icons", which will also show some other images, including one that looks like a "c" rotated 180 degrees with an arrowhead pointing downward on the appropriate terminal of the "c". (but the ready-made font with "cc" is likely to be easier to use.) – barbara beeton Nov 2 '13 at 9:41
@barbarabeeton I didn't find it...Can you post a link? Thanks! – G M Nov 2 '13 at 15:16
