A simple way to search for creative commons art in DA, is to use Google advance search.

Put it in you search:
"This work is licensed under a Creative Commons"

Click the word "Images" in the left of the google page. It will show images instead of pages.

Voila. You'll see all images under CC in DA.
If you want to be more specific in your search, you can add words in the search above.

It doesn't compares with an in-site feature, but at least it is a workaround...

I have a stupid question:
How I change CC version to 4.0 in DA? it seems the DA system stucks on 3.0.
My arts are latest version of CC.

You should be able to specify the license clearly in the description. Make it clear and you should be ok. (IANAL)

I have a quick question: I have a character released under license CC-BY-SA. If someone uses it for their own work, are they supposed to release said work under the same license or this applies to the character only?

I am not a layer, but the work can only really be incorporated into a larger work if that larger work has a compatible license. In the case of Share-alike, I'm certain that's the share-alike license. There are code projects that release their art dual licensed gpl and share-alike to make sure they're doing the right thing for licensing. Other have treated them separately in different repositories.

Do you happen to know how can I - and others - ask DA to make the creative commons under 4.0 attribution? I went through the help desk and I didn't find a way. I probably missed something. Can you help me?

There's no way to specify using the deviantArt tools, but you can always not specify a creative commons license in the tools and put your Creative Commons license in the description. This should include a link to the cc page/terms and perhaps a graphic. This goes the same for Public Domain, CC0, GPL and other possible licenses.

I asked after I saw Copyright-Outlaw's comment below and your reply. Seems thee is no way to ask this of DA at the moment.

So simply to clarify things, the solution is posting a link in the description to the desired license, stating that it overrides the default license below?
Is that legally binding?

Thanks for the help :)
