There's a website called CreativeCommons.org that helps artists create custom copyrights for their works, free of charge. Music, essays, poems, ideas, whatever. If you want to copyright it so someone has to pay you to use it, they can help you write up simplified legaleeze to make it work. Wanna make it free to use but get credit? They can do that, too!
To help get their message across, they ran a small contest to get people to create ads to explain what Creative Commons does. The winner's film blew me away. It's a huge file that I would not recommend downloading via phone, but a high speed connection will take a minute or two, and the wait is definitely worth it.
A cool company with a cool idea and cool films. Cool!Posted by Austin at March 01, 2004 08:15 AM
