Podcasting Legal Guide
Inspired by the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Legal Guide for Bloggers, the Podcasting Legal Guide is designed to outline both legal and practical issues that are specifically relevant for podcasters, such as using music and video in a podcast. The Guide has been published both online and as a PDF under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 license. A hard copy of the Guide can also be ordered via Lulu.
CC Podcast Plugs
To coincide with the release of the Podcasting Legal Guide, Creative Commons is launching CC Podcast Plugs. These short MP3 promos are designed for use by podcasters who offer their work under CC terms. If you’re a podcaster, use the Plugs on this page to let your listeners know that your podcast is offered to the public under one of Creative Commons’ flexible copyright licenses. Check back soon, as we’ll be adding new CC Podcast Plugs frequently.
