CC USB

Last week on this weblog:

USB memory and hardware media player vendors take note — you can ship your device with great music without asking for permission, because permission has already been granted.


Today:

Magnatune and Hana Micron Launch TunePlug Portable USB Drive With Pre-Loaded MP3 Music From Leading Independent Artists

This isn’t exactly a “permission has already been granted” case. Magnatune uses a NonCommercial license, so the USB drive vendor had to ask permission to sell drives filled with Magnatune tracks. However, it is a device shipped chock full of CC-licensed music, which is pretty cool.
