Using the Creative Commons Music Sharing License

Good info on how what it’s good for and how to use it.
CC Music Sharing License
The Creative Commons music license helps you:

  1. Mark It Legal: Mark your music with the CC logo so fans know that you own your copyright, but give permission to download, file-share, copy, and webcast â.. but not to sell, alter, or make any other commercial uses. Here’s an example of how it would look on a band’s web page and here’s a short comic describing how fans might legally use your music.
  2. Promote It: Register your music at Common Content so people can contact you to purchase commercial rights to the composition or sound recording. Or, have it hosted for free at the Internet Archive.
  3. Make It Searchable: Make your music searchable within the Creative Commons audio search engine.
