AGNULA Music Libre

Mike Linksvayer, April 26th, 2004

AGNULA Music Libre, a new database of libre music (which includes music licensed under the CC Attribution and Attribution-ShareAlike licenses), launched last month.

The site has adopted CC’s license embedding strategy, publishing RDF backing license claims made in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis files.

    I don’t know much about the licensing issue, but it seems to me that the system doesn’t offer that much protection to licensors because it requires them to be aware of every network where their work might be shared. I am interested in the issue because I am contemplating distributing Linux distros for free, and as an incentive to use Linux, I want to bundle free music and video with the OS’s. I would love to help artists get their work to new people, but I don’t want to be accused of distributing their work without permission. I am not interested in making money from the work I’ll bundle, so I’m not sure how the licensing would affect me. I have no problem spreading art with the licenses. Do these licenses affect me? Or, would they only affect me if I somehow attempt to subvert the licenses that come with the work?
