There are too few nonprofit organizations like CC fighting for the digital commons – support our vital leadership with an end of year contribution. Donate today!
Over at the blog “A Month Full Of Wednesdays” I noticed a post describing a recent Minneapolis call for music and video to play in stations and a recent call for artwork for Cleveland’s public transit. The post mentions an idea to extend Cleveland art requests to include audio for use in stations and the transit authority’s hold system.
The author mentions that Creative Commons licenses would be a good idea to level the playing field and allow the municipal companies to share the music with others on their site freely. We can’t help but agree; these projects calling for artwork, music, and video for public transportation ask creators to contribute their work for the good of the community, much like our licenses do for the good of a greater culture.Posted 27 January 2004
