CC Portal

Vimeo adds CC browse and search capabilities

Jane Park, February 14th, 2012

Vimeo has revamped their platform for video creators and users, including the creation of a Creative Commons landing page where you can browse and search for videos by CC license!

From http://vimeo.com/new:

“Our members love using Creative Commons licenses to rework, remix, and reimagine, which is why we built a whole new section to help you discover videos available with Creative Commons licenses. Browse and search millions of videos categorized by license type and learn about what you can (and can’t) do with other people‚Äôs videos on Vimeo.”

We were thrilled when Vimeo enabled the CC license suite in July of 2010; we are even more thrilled that the Vimeo team has since recognized the community’s needs to easily discover high quality CC-licensed videos. Blake Whitman, Vimeo’s VP of Creative Development, says,

“We know the many ways in which sharing can positively impact creativity. As such, we will continue to build features that enable people to exchange ideas, and that support the Vimeo community’s growing demand for creative sharing. Our partnership with Creative Commons is the backbone of this commitment.

Not only will this development help video creators and users everywhere, it will also help to improve our metrics on CC-licensed works on the web and assess their impact, so we can better help CC creators and users everywhere.

Three cheers to Vimeo! Check out the CC Vimeo portal — which anyone who has a Vimeo account can access by upgrading to the new Vimeo — at http://vimeo.com/creativecommons. Learn about out all new Vimeo features and changes at http://vimeo.com/new.

CASH Music: Exploring Creative Commons Licensing in the Music Industry

Cameron Parkins, January 21st, 2009

cashlogo_homeCASH Music, the CC license using music label/creative community we have discussed numerous times before, just launched a wonderful new Creative Commons Portal for understanding how CC licenses can be utilized by record labels and artists.

The portal is beautifully designed with an emphasis on simplicity – an introduction to CC, hypothetical uses, and real world examples are the only foci. Meant to grow an expand overtime, the portal is a great resource for record labels looking into how they can adopt CC. As CASH expands upon its mission to “develop open source tools for artists and promote best practices in the music industry”, resources like the CC Portal will become increasingly more valuable.
