Finding Creative Commons in all the weirdest places

Matt Haughey, May 18th, 2004

Cellphone ringtones were a $3 billion business last year, but a new bit of software from Xingtone finally makes it possible to easily create your own sounds. I always thought much of the Opsound archive would make good ringtones. It’ll be interesting to see if more CC music makes its way onto phones everywhere.

In other CC-in-other-media news, some people working on MythTV (a sort of open source TiVo that can run on any linux PC) are trying to find ways to import movies from the Internet Archive and under CC license to their TV systems.
