Pay to license working with Creative Commons

Matt Haughey, March 23rd, 2004

One-man band Brad Sucks recently signed with Magnatune and licensed all his tracks under Creative Commons (and began selling them on a sliding scale on Magnatune’s site).

We were delighted to hear that Brad’s song “Making Me Nervous” was recently licensed for use in radio ads and TV ads that played in Canada. Thanks in part to Magnatune’s tiered licensing system, record-at-home musicians like Brad have found other ways to make a living from their music by selling commercial licenses. It’s a great example of the common sense approach Magnatune takes to commercial licensing that also allows for free sharing and listening by fans. Congrats, Brad and Magnatune!
